Doomsday....sorry, you missed it.Since the concept of the Leap Year was first implemented back in 45BC, there have been about 514 of them.Doomsday....sorry, you missed it.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Without the extra day every 4 years, we would be in 2013.
As the Mayan Calendar doesn't take leap years into account; 2012 has been and gone.

Edit 24.11.13: Updated prizes + put the date in proper format; updated rules - one line added:
"Entries that keep too closely to the inspirational source (i.e. the ones that basically copy the image by just switching the stock) will be rejected."
I have decided to wait a little longer before adding any judges so you are not limited by maybe wanting to avoid certain people as inspirational sources
Edit 4.12.13: Please, please, please, read the rules before you start!
I hate to decline work on the grounds of formalities (especially when I can see you put a lot of effort
in your work) - this includes the DO NOT COPY part!

Manip Challenges #001If you've been on dA for a while, you may remember the manip challenges I used to run. The original manip challenges were chat based 2 hour challenges, but as I don't have that kind of time any more (the event would be all day long, with 3 to 5 challenges in succession), I decided to adapt them to be two weeks long and not in a chatroom instead.Manip Challenges #0013 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Wow! What a response! We're through the first week (still one to go!) of the challenge and already there are over 20 entries! Thank you so much for making this site & this group fun
You are given 8 stock images (see below) of which you have to use at least TWO in a way that we don't have to go hunting for them with a looking glass.You can use additional stock, but I ask you not to use premades - this is a challenge for your skills, not for someone else's.Your entry has to be a photomanipulation or a digital mixed media piece with a good deal of photomanipulation in it.Pl

Supergirl 52 suitI couldn't be more honored that my likeness was used for Supergirl's image in Supergirl issue #8, on stands currently, by legendary artist George Perez! In gratitude I've decided to make the new 52 Supergirl suit, currently underway and going pretty well! The lines on the suit have presented a challenge that will put my skills to the test, but I think I have a good way. I hope to do George's art justice in bringing it to real life!

Making Your ToU Crystal Clear- WIPs, etc.Hello stockers and stock users!Making Your ToU Crystal Clear- WIPs, etc.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It has recently come to my attention by talking to another CV that some people are having a problem with a particular stock issue. That issue is WIPs. I have no idea who the stock provider was or the stock user (I saw a journal but have long forgotten), and I don't know how the issue was settled, so if it was you, I'm not talking directly to or about you specifically in this journal. This is a good issue for all of us to pay some attention to, and brings up other issues as well.
First, a word to the stockers:
Most of us have in our stock terms something along the lines of, "Show me your finished work."
The problem with this is that if you want to see WIPs that are posted on deviantART, the stock user is probably not understanding that. The word "finished" in your terms means exactly that to them: finished work. The work in progress is not a finished work, and therefor, according to your term

Once upon a time, I was a volunteer, and speaking from experience, it can be a both blessing and a curse.
I believe that many current and former volunteers will agree with that sentiment and I feel it's important to explain a bit about why I believe this to be true.
Maybe you're not aware of the variety of ways people join the volunteer team. As per FAQ #85: Can I be a volunteer on deviantART? many people send in an application to express their interest in joining the team and I go through those applications and s

As the Community Volunteer for Photomanipulation, it will be my honor over the coming months to share the community I serve with you all and to show you the vast diversity, expertise, and creativity that defines us as artists.
Tonight I wanted to share some voices of experience with you all. The individuals I have chosen to interview for this piece have all been a part dA for at least five years. They have all been leaders in the photomanipulation community by setting high standards of quality through their exquisite works, by being involved in the community, and by setting a positive example for us all to admire.

is hosting a new contest!
This contest is going to be a bit different from the contests we held in the past.
Since Deviant ART is such a friendly environment I decided you all deserve a present!
How are we going to do this?
It's quite simple (:
We are going to make presents for each other.
The idea is every one who wants to take place in this contest leaves a comment in this journal. Stating information about yourself that helps the person who comments before you. Because the person who will comments after you will make you a present!
Since the first person to comment can not make a present I will be the first one to comment.
And also the last one to comment will receive a gift. This will come from the contributors of our group!
This is how you enter

Hope y'all doing okay. It's been a very inspirational summer for me, catching the last rays of summer sun in the most exciting city - Berlin. I did take a few shots there, but I haven't had a chance to go through the images yet. I fear some (or most) of them are fuzzy. After having the chance of handling a different kind of camera and lens, I have a feeling I need to change things up. Move forward. Evolve. I'm eager to learn and it's a necessary step to do so. Talkin' about planning on getting a new camera and a better lens. I'll give you a heads up once I've made up my mind about what to get. But I already have something on my mind. In the meanwhile, take a look at some artworks I liked within the past couple of weeks. Every artist featured is unique and deserves a little attention. Bring it on, folks!
Manip Challenges #003I wanted to do this last weekend, but ended up doing everything but this But here they finally are: our third edition of the Manip Challenges! I hope there will be as much participation as last time (though I have to admit, reaching over 30 entries in the middle of the vacation period might be a bit optimistic - I suppose you've been spoiling me so far ) In any case, it's about having a challenge and not about breaking any participation records, so let's just get it on I can't wait to see all your gorgeous entries!Manip Challenges #0033 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Daily Deviations UpdateHappy Monday MorningDaily Deviations Update3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I started this morning by signing something "Moonbam13" so either this typo means I need more coffee, or this week is going to be BAMTASTIC!
I'm rooting for the latter
I wanted to post a quick update on changes to Daily Deviations. It is important to note that these changes have not been hard-coded so my team is manually following these new guidelines. This means that errors can and likely will occur until the coding is complete, your patience and understanding is appreciated
The following guideline changes are in effect:
The 3-month rule is now the 6-month rule, meaning that it must be at least 6-months since the last time an artist received a daily deviation. (This was an overwhelmingly popular suggestion from the community and I agree, it's a good one!)
Daily deviation selectors may only select one daily deviation per day maximum. This has been put in place to focus on Quality vs Quantity.
