#01 Constructively Comment in 5 Quick Steps!ProjectComment is a Group of many projects centred around comments, but, more importantly, constructive comments. Every week, one admin from ProjectComment will write an informative article on commenting that will hopefully be useful to you! Please help support us by the article and contribute your thoughts and opinions on the matter.#01 Constructively Comment in 5 Quick Steps!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This article will list five easy ways to make your comment constructive. What many people do not realise is that a constructive comment does not have to be as long or as indepth as a critique, and that you don't need to be an awesome commenter or an awesome artist to write a constructive comment. You probably won't have to spend more than 5-10 minutes writing a constructive comment, and it could still be helpful to the artist.
Here are the steps that you can take to make your comment more constructive:
State the things you like about the piece.

New llama levels and Badge Pages! Fellow llama herders!New llama levels and Badge Pages!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may have noticed that today is a momentous day in the field of llamas. Due to their unexpected popularity, we have decided to tweak the llama levels a bit, in order to maximize fun and fairness for every deviant around -- from llama aficionados to those who simply dabble in llamas from time to time.
What llamas? Glad you asked!
Behold, the new breakdown of llamas! (If you dislike spoilers and wish to achieve the levels by pure surprise, then keep scrolling.)
= 1 (Llama)
= 10 (Super Llama)
= 50 (Albino Llama)
= 100 (Super Albino Llama)
= 500 (Ninja Llama)
= 1,000 (Fancy Llama)
= 2,500 (King Llama)
= 5,000 (Spartan Llama)
= 7,500 (Wizard Llama)
= 10,000 (Golden Llama)
There you have it! So many awesome reasons to stay connected to the community and to search out new and undiscovered deviants. Share the wealth, my friends. Share it.
30-Day Worldbuilding ChallengeThe other day I was in one of my classes aimlessly daydreaming when I thought to myself how awesome it'd be to do a 30-day worldbuilding challenge. I've done visual research for comic stories before, but I always stumble when I'm trying to draw the thing and come up with the props and background simultaneously. A challenge like that'd be fantastic prep, not to mention a good source for conflict. I found a couple worldbuilding challenges through google, but I wasn't able to find something that was what I had in mind. So, I wrote up my own. These are the days and their challenges:30-Day Worldbuilding Challenge3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. The World- the general setting that this will all take place in.
2. Geography- the specific landmass you'll be focusing on, the Morrowind to your Tamriel. Talk about weather patterns and the general lay of the land.
4. Resources- How do the people get water? Food? Are there rich minerals nearby, or mystical ley lines that power magical energy?
7. Races/General Culture
Good NewsI'm excited to let you know that Autodesk, Inc. has made an investment in deviantART and that one of Autodesk's top executives, Samir Hanna, Vice President of the Autodesk Consumer Group, will become an observer on the deviantART Board of Directors.Good News2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Autodesk has over 30 years of history in helping designers create amazing things. You may know Autodesk for apps like SketchBook and Pixlr for drawing, illustration, and image editing, or for software like 3ds Max and Maya, which are used by the top film and game studios around the world to create fantastically realistic 3D characters, environments, and effects. Amazing fact: the last 17 Academy Award winners for Best Visual Effects use Autodesk software. Autodesk is also known for engineering software like AutoCAD, Inventor, and Revit, which has been used to design some of the world’s tallest buildings, longest bridges, and most incredible machines.

Account Security - An UpdateRecently, there has been some rumours spreading throughout the community about a hacker going around taking over accounts and deactivating them. We'd like to reassure you on this matter, and to also provide you some useful pointers in order to keep your account secure.Account Security - An Update4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Upon hearing these "hacker" claims, we put our supersleuth dT Team to the task of making sure that nothing untoward was going on, and to verifythat there was no exploits within the deactivation process. We have been assured that there's no exploit that is being used to access accounts and deactivate them. There is a far simpler and less sinister answer, however and it's something that every one of us can take a proactive stance towards -- passwords. You need them for just about everything these days. What's the point of having them if you're only going to make them something really simple? The use of strong passwords is one of the most basic aspects of internet security.

I don't know how to break this to you.I'm really tired of only being able to submit one jpg in to a deviation. My art is often an adventure and the art is in the adventure.I don't know how to break this to you.2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
deviantART doesn't allow me to publish that.
That's an easy thing to fix, technically. It just has big implications. But I think we should just do it and see what happens.
It would mean that you could publish things made in Stash Writer as deviations. Which breaks the promise that when you click a deviation, all that results is a deviation. It could be an entire publication, like techgnotic's articles.
We're pussy footing around this change within the company, and today while attempting to publish my art work for the fifth time lately I've just effing had it. I haven't posted to deviantART since the summer because of this.
And my current gallery? It's a sham compared to the work I've been doing th

How to help your community:The community seems to be dead? And you don't think you can do anything to help?How to help your community:2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
You are wrong!
Let me tell you, I often felt this way. I believed it was the end of the community but then deviants showed up and reanimated it. It wasn't completely fixed, but it was alive.
There are many things that you can do: (in no particular order )
1. Write a Journal about the issue.
Don't be afraid to write a Journal if you feel there is something wrong with the community, maybe there are others who feel the same way, they might have been afraid to say something. You can work together to reanimate it.
2. Deviations and Comments
The deviations are the part that brought you together as a community, it is something that you all have in common. So, create more deviations! Others might get inspired and start to create some more as well.
And don't wait until others write comments on your deviation, it is important in a community to communicate. The others might think the

Winners - My OC in Love With Your OC ContestA few weeks ago Ravenswd and I decided to do a "small" love contest featuring one of our OCs with one of the contestant's OCs. It was hosted on my mirz-alt account. To read more about it, click here ---> http://mirz-alt.deviantart.com/journal/OC-Love-Contest-CLOSED-279906697Winners - My OC in Love With Your OC Contest3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You know, people say it's always so hard judging a contest and you don't know if that's the truth or not. As it is, this REALLY was a hard contest. We got 18 entries! As much as we got amazing art and Lit, our main focus was on how well a pair-up was presented. Was the couple believable? Did they seem like they were in love? How was that depicted in a story-manner through the piece.
After days of wrangling, we finally have the winners. Some may be expected, some may be a surprise. But the bottom line is these are the couples we "believed" the most.

Typography: An inside lookTypography: An inside lookTypography: An inside look3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Typography is an old form of art, everybody heard about it. But what exactly is typography? Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible while taking various forms, such as animals, objects, faces, hands or more direct inspirational quotes.
The arrangement of type involves the selection of typefaces, point size, line length, line spacing, adjusting the spaces between groups of letters and adjusting the space between pairs of letters.
Contest: The Color WhiteThemeContest: The Color White2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It's been a while since Things-Not-Seen has hosted a contest, so I think it's time we put something together.
It's winter, and one of the things I associate winter with is snow. Of course, :dev-things-not-seen: has members from all around the world, so not everyone experiences winter the way I do. So I decided to have this contest revolve around the color of snow, white.
READ ALL THE RULES.
The main color of your entry must be white.
You must be a member of Things-Not-Seen. To become a member, simply go to our group → http://things-not-seen.deviantart.com/ and click "Join our Group" at the top of the page.
After you've uploaded your entry to deviantART, submit it to the group's favs in the "Contest: The Color White" folder. Don't know how to do this? Go here → http://things-not-seen.deviantart.com/journal
