Comment Counts Under Thumbnail Images
Two weeks ago, we released comment counts under thumbnail images to Beta Testers. Today, the feature has been rolled out to everyone. We believe that this feature adds more context to the experience of viewing artwork on deviantART. You'll now find comment counts underneath the thumbnails of deviations -- they can be seen when browsing or searching art, and also display in your Message Center. We hope this feature will help bring to light the fact
Impression of Warcraft Movie TrailerHello all fans! I know some of you didn't get the chance to go Blizzcon 2014 to watch Warcraft Movie Trailer.

1st scene, in bird's eye view of stromwind, epic, fantastic and amazing.
Sunset is shining above the city, indicates that the war is coming
An armory in Stormwind. Shining shields on walls and weapons by racks.
Scene into the Throne Hall of King, so holy! King Llane is sitting on throne, Lothar and Medivh (I guess) standing in front of throne.
Close up of King Llane is thinking, maybe he's hearing Lothar reporting the war
In Blasted Lands (or outland?), a green lightning pierces the sky

Birthday Scuzzle! BREAKING NEWS! Something terrible has happened!Birthday Scuzzle!4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Some naughty mudkips invaded dA and stole a very important photograph. The stunning photo was a gift for all of you to celebrate deviantART's 11th birthday. It is devastating to confirm it is now missing.
Witnesses say that the mudkips were spotted sneaking out of an open window, but we cannot confirm until a full investigation has been reported and all evidence collected.
In the meantime, the photograph remains missing. Moonbeam13 is currently searching her spellbook to find a way to bring the image back.
Stay tuned for further updates. A full report will be issued on the 3rd August.
What is a Scuzzle?
A Scuzzle is a combination of a Scavenger Hunt and a Jigsaw Puzzle. There will be lots of missing pieces of this Scuzzle ready for you to find. Although there are some subtle clues to help you along your way, you will need to search high and low for them! Come back on the 3rd August for the hunt to begin!

If you don't accept criticism, you won't improveThis statement is, to be blunt, incredibly stupid. I see it repeated around DevianART and, as bad as it is hearing it from the general public, I have to laugh uproarously when I see it coming from an artist. I usually try to be more diplomatic, but sometimes my inner Snape just can't be contained.If you don't accept criticism, you won't improve3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here is the reality of the situation. A person who is building a set of skills can improve without feedback of any kind. Through trial and error, a human being can identify their own mistakes and, with honest work, rectify those mistakes. To say that this is not possible is so counter to reality as to be absurd. I could give thousands of examples but I'll just say this: if it were not for an individual's ability to invent skills from within themselves we would have absolutely no skills to pass on to other people.
Is this a good reason to reject any kind of negative criticism or criticism in general? Does this mean that criticism is useless? Absolutely not. This
Tokyo bluesEXTREME STREET PHOTOGRAPHY - VTokyo blues1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Are there places were street photography is impossible? Are there countries easier than others, or harder than others? How is it street shooting like in exotic places, or places you never visited, places that are completely different from what you are used to? I asked a few street photographers around the world to share with us their experiences.

Japan is a fascinating country with an unusual mix of the traditional and modern. It's a magical place filled with anime, cosplayers, samurai, sushi, and all the strangest things imaginable. Wrong! Well, not really, but this is just the cliché, outer covering. When newcomers just scratch the surface of this country, this cliché is all they find. But, in reality, Japan is a place like any other: full of human beings who have normal lives with all their little dr

Excessive use of memes. (mudkipz, llamas, smile.dog.jpg, etc.)

This is how I was drawing when I was a teenager, something around 15-17.
Behold my weaboo phase! Yes, I was drawing animu. I never got a good grip on that style so it's all hideous.

That hand. That space between eyes. That fabric, hair, expression, composition ...well everything.

So fav+comment, and you're in!
The way it works is as follows:
Once the contest ends, I will use random number generator to get a number, and the person who has that number in the faves list will be the winner!
I will be making a colored portrait (shoulders up) for the winner!
As a bonus I will also generate a runner-up number, and the runner-up will get a port

Bummed about Animal gamesbah D: Depessed'dBummed about Animal games3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was poking around and caught eye of Wolf-Haven and Wolfventure....
what the fuck...? How come there's so many video games where you play wolves and just wolves D| Yes, WQ is shit, but god damn, there are other cool animals out there! Even in the wolf family, can we explore a different kind of wolf? ;__; sigh. With names like that, I can't even desperately hope that WH and WV will ever have other species choices.
What the wolf is to animal video games gives me that same sick feeling in my stomach I got when I realized the mmorpg community had no shame in copying WoW/Everquest.
I don't even get it, why are so many people so happy to intentionally compete with each other? @_@ How about a hyena once and a while or a fossa or a jaguar. A dingo and a thylacine, a tanuki or the dhole, the bear or the wildebeest. Even a coyote would be a nice bit of variety at this point.
Excuse me now, I'm need to go sulk in the corner.
