A TRUE DD!!!! (and an update. )A TRUE DD!!!! (and an update. )3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yes ladies and gents, this is what this group is about. Not just taking quality, but helping to FEATURE upcoming, always learning and improving artist as well.
I was so proud when I found this. I really hope many of you see now that a DD is not an award, it's a feature. It's something someone was inspired or felt something and wanted to share with many.
NOW!!! Back to business!
We've got most of the new moderators in, and we're cleaning up some last minuet details. We'll be opening the gallery again on tuesday!!!
Edit: Add to your faves so the whole of DA can maybe see this on the top 5 at the bottom.
Traditional Tuesdays #23Hello, welcome to the 23rd week of Traditional Tuesdays. With this I will try to give you a small representation of what you have in store while browsing through the Traditional Gallery. The traditional gallery is vast and awe inspiring, and this is just a little romp through the sub-galleries. I've picked out 15 deviations for your viewing pleasure. I've had to put a limit on the awesomeness, or the article would be waaaaaaaaaaaay too damn long.Traditional Tuesdays #233 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Group Spotlight vol. 4Hello everyone,Group Spotlight vol. 41 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I've started a new series of features where I spotlight a group that contributes to the DeviantArt community somehow either by promoting unknown art, doing regular features, holding competitions, promoting critique/comment systems, showcasing resources to help members improve, etc. I'm hoping to possibly bring to light some great groups here on dA and possibly attract them new members or watchers, by showcasing deviations from their gallery after a brief introduction of the group in itself.
Enjoy and please!
Cute Quaint Quirky is "a fun, new group all about finding the cutest, quaintest and quirkiest bits of art out there on dA! We're looking for clear, creative photos with a vintage feel and a pop of life. We like photos with a warm, whimsical, soft, and dreamy feel that adds a new depth to photography for us."

Thanks to all who participated, and I hope you all had fun taking part in this very glorious revolution. Until next time, comrades.
This time inspired by the absolutely amazing, moving, and brilliant icon displayed below:
"A flat colour as an icon is the way to go!" - PhoenixDestruction
If you'd like to join in the Avatar Revolution, just pick your favorite color and set it as your icon. If we gain enough participants, perhaps we'll be able to put together a nice pixel artwork with each icon representing a pixel of color.
Check out the new contest as well as the pixel creations made from this revolution:

Farewell EddI was a fan of Edd Gould's work back in 2008 and made my first fan art of his animated short, Zanta Claws IIFarewell Edd3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We never met (well almost in Comic Con 2010... if I knew about it earlier), but he was a funny guy and that is deeply reflected in his animated shorts and comics.
My last artwork I did for him was a commissioned piece which my favourite Eddsworld fan art:
This was perhaps the hardest for me to paint as there were many characters involved but I guess it paid off and he was happy with it and I think it was
a good gift as any that I could give to him.
It was devastating for me just to learn of his passing on 25th March this year. My condolences goes to his family and close friends. His legacy will live on with us, the fans.
YOU WILL BE MISSED ALWAYS EDD! THANKS FOR THE LAUGHS!

Yes, the Complaint Challenge has returned and this time inknalcohol is going to help me run it! And we cannot wait to see all the gripes and Phase 2 entries after last year's awesome submissions!
What could be more fun than winning points by complaining? Well, what happens after the complaining will be more fun, in my thorny opinion, but I'll save that until this portion is complete. Psst, next phase will have loads more prizes.

It's the end of the year and a perfect time to unload your gripes. Put them out in the open and prepare for a new year that will be filled with plenty more complaint worthy stuff.

dumb thought of the dayevery now and then i get these stupid ideas.dumb thought of the day3 years ago in Personal More Like This
so here is the latest one...if gravity affects time, meaning stronger the gravity, more time is affected. and if the presumption is true that strong enough gravity can stop time..within a black hole
black hole has the mass of the collapsed star.... so... just before big bang we had all the cosmos compressed in a singular point with immeasurable mass, right?
that would mean that it is a ... sort of a non state point... a non event since time is in effective stasis.. space and time compressed in a singular point.
so an event has to transpire that was superior to all those 4 dimensions....
above time and space...
either this proves there is a God... or...doctor who is actually real!!!!!
yeah.... my mind is silly like that XD

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

ME: Paragon Lost, plus unannounced Story DLCThe project of taking Mass Effect and distilling some story aspect of the universe into a form palatable for production as an animated short movie was a project that, quite honestly, slipped my attention after I first posted about it some months ago.ME: Paragon Lost, plus unannounced Story DLC3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you're in the same situation I was, here is the long and short of it. Mass Effect: Paragon Lost is an anime film created by Funimation --the same people who did the Dragon Age anime-- and will focus on James Vega and his mission against the Collectors before the events of Mass Effect 3.
And, Comic Con being a good a time as any, they just recently debuted a teaser trailer.
Did I mention it was anime?
I know a lot of you are clamoring for more single player DLC, especially those of you who aren't interested in all the multiplayer expansions.
