Holiday Card Project 2013Holiday Card Project 20132 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

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.
With the investment we plan to improve deviantART at a faster pace than we coul

We Give a F*** How the Site LoadsDevelopers can be angry people sometimes. This is actually quite the understatement and dt is no exception to that assessment. With web development in particular, there are several moments during the day where we are astounded, perplexed, and irritated by why something works the way it does--often over things beyond our control like lack of uniform web standards. Abe Stanway, the creator of Commit Logs from Last Night, actually gives a pretty compelling, and serious, Ignite talk on the functionality of profanity for developers here:We Give a F*** How the Site Loads2 years ago in Personal More Like This

It was difficult back to Mypaint 1.0 days to have an idea of the actual zoom level.

Username Changes Now AvailableDeviantART has been around for almost twelve years, and in that time, we've seen artists grow from hobbyists to students to professionals. As a member of any community, your identity can change and grow over time.Username Changes Now Available3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
For years, we've been getting requests from the community asking for the ability to change usernames. We realize that as an artist, it's important to give you the ability to change your personal brand, just as you change your interests, skills, and art types.
How It Works
Deviants can now change their username in their Settings. To change your username, you must have an active Premium Membership. (The reason there is a "fee" associated with the change is because switching usernames is a complex technical proce
dA in 10 years?I recently read a forum thread found here: http://forum.deviantart.com/devart/general/131114/ about where everyone thought deviantART would be in 10 years. Many people said we'd have sold out to MSN or AOL. Others said we'd be limiting uploads for non-subscribers and cutting off access to services.dA in 10 years?12 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's two ways to take this I suppose: Either it's a general feeling that this thing is too good to be true in its current form. Or somehow it's expected that a service growing so quickly would somehow be forced to sell out.
Neither is true. This was my response:
I think deviantART will be looked upon as a revolution unto itself. Having been able to scale not only it's infrastructure but it's community and spawned sub-communities (within the garden of deviantART) to include the various arts of hundreds of millions of artists worldwide.
And as the ultimate complement, it will be taken completely for granted. A service fully integrated in to daily li

Black Hills Camping Trip (photos)Ohhhh goodness... where to begin? Back from a rather crazy camping trip. Crazy in ways both good and bad. Decided to spend a weekend in the Black Hills since Chris (INTOtheRFD) had been through a couple long rough weeks of work and wanted some down time. There were also storm chances every day/night, which were very enticing. And ever since Chris and I visited there for the first time in late 2012, we started thinking about moving there. Since Sarah (JupiterLily) is here now, we figured what better opportunity to show her what could possibly be our future home?Black Hills Camping Trip (photos)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Left Friday morning to meet up with Chris, and headed west on I-90 through South Dakota towards Rapid City. Looked like an okay chase day, and stuff was finally starting to fire west of the Black Hills as we reached Kadoka. Headed west and south into the Black Hills, only to watch our storm die before it got to us. This would soon become the theme of the trip Called it a day and shot the sunset at Sylvan Lake.

I basically had nothing to do today, and decided to show all my fabulous watchers how much they mean to me I've reached over 60 now () and figured I'd do what everybody seems to be doing these days: make a feature dedicaded to those amazing people who have shown me sooooo much support!!! You have no idea how much I appreciate it You guys are simply the best (no, I'm not gonna go all Tina Turner on you ) I've gone through every single gallery, and picked my favorite piece of work from each person! Sadly, not all my watchers post work of their own, so they're not here, but they mean just as much to me nevertheless

A new feature has been launched that's designed to make interacting with others even easier than before! Deviant & Art Mentions are a highly requested feature that send notifications to your Message Center when someone mentions you or your work in a public location on site.

These messages are designed to help engagement between deviants, as well as to help further conversation on deviantART, making it easier than before to

The Creative Juggernaut that is BenHeine
Undoubtedly one of the most prolific, innovative, and exciting artists
exhibiting their work on deviantART has to be the amazing BenHeine.
In terms of sheer creativity and the true spirit of art as human expression that knows no bounds,
he is currently with few peers. His unique visual creations have been featured in newspapers, magazines
and other publications worldwide and over the last few years his works have begun to populate art galleries
and museums from Brussels and London to Turkey, Romania and South Korea.

"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.
So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make new mistakes. make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you're scared of doing, do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever."

Tamron 70-300mm - Little Overweight, But BeautifulLatest NewsTamron 70-300mm - Little Overweight, But Beautiful2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So after comparing my options, and even considering ditching getting a new telephoto in favor of a new prime (85mm f/1.8 to be exact), I went out and bought the Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD Thursday morning. It was my late night at work, and so instead of driving home, then turning around and driving back to Dallas later in the day once I woke up, I just decided to stop in Downtown and shoot some photos with the old telephoto, the Canon 75-300mm, one last time. I figured I could waste two hours shooting photos until the store opened.
I got to the store a bit after they opened, and played around with the Tamron and the Canon 85mm. I must say I was nearly swayed into buying the new prime, since I would have also been able to get my hands on the Black Rapid strap I am after. But I went ahead and got the Tamron.
There is the box
