As a way to help kickstart devNEWS and allow us to start hosting events, contests, improving, etc. we wanted to do a Points Marathon!
From now until November 20, 2011 at 11:59:59 PM we are collecting points at DevNews-Points. If we reach 10,000 points or more we will give Three 3 Month Premium Memberships to deviants in devNEWS. However, we must reach that goal to give those premiums
This marathon will allow us to say thank you for all of your continued support with devNEWS, we could not do it without all of you! You do not have to donate to be elegible for the 3 month premium, you only have to be a member of deviantART and DevNews, however, we are offering thank you's to those who do donate, even if it is only 10 points
The points that we gain from this will allow us to begin contests, events, etc. We really hope to have all of your support.
Even if you cannot donate, if you can Favorite This Journal and Share it w

:iconthesmallwonder: Some thoughts from Katie (thesmallwonder)
Spring has sprung and April showers have started raining down here at HQ.
Winter rain makes me want to crawl back into bed, get a hot cup of coco, and read a book all day. But there’s something different about April showers...
Maybe it’s because it’s less cold outside, or that the days are longer, but springtime rain makes me want to play in puddles.I want to go outside and smell the fresh air, and I just feel rejuvenated. Spring is a time for me to dust off old projects and start new ones. Forget New Years, April's when I get inspired!
I want to hear from you!
Do you play in the rain?
Does spring inspire you?

Tutorial: do huge features really fast and easyA Journal „tutorial“ aka „save time and make your dA life easier“.Tutorial: do huge features really fast and easy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just couldn't watch my fellow deviants doing the features the most tiring and time consuming ways anymore, while there is much simpler and really fast way of dealing with big features, as big as the Journal limit allows if necessary, and I will share how. It's up to you if you wanna start using it too.
It's really nothing special, just an incredibly useful method I figured along the way, through my long featuring „career“. Also, maybe it will give motivation to more people to start making features, small or big, and help support their favorite artists, artists who deserve much more recognition and feedback, introduce unknown great artists and their art they found to others, etc.
The „tutorial“ is divided in 2 parts:
1. Featuring artwork collected though Polls/Journals made especially for that
2. Featuring artwork from your Favorites

How to start getting exposure and notice on DA.Hello there curious Deviant! :iconmeowfaceplz:How to start getting exposure and notice on DA.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So you are reading this now because you are either suffering from very few notice or exposure and feedback, or you are curious to increase your popularity, and get more viewers. Or maybe you just came here from your inbox, and you are real pissed, then don't be, this Journal will help You more than it would help me.
Being a known Artist here on Da is a challenge, but once you accomplish that you are rewarded with quite a great things. The success of getting yourself or work noticed is dependable on many factors, and I will list those briefly so you can have a general Idea:
One of the major factors of being known here is the Deviations themselves, nobody wants to watch a person who does nothing but commenting for example, upload some deviations, if you can't draw upload photographs, if that's even hard then submit a story or Poem. And keep your submissions organized and steady, never go out in regular inacti
Thursday: Tree, Olive, Bottle Art Contest!I hope you all had a fantastic Valentine's Day last week! Well done spreading the love to all.Thursday: Tree, Olive, Bottle Art Contest!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
This week, we're continuing the love trend. We're doing an art creation contest. However, there's a twist -- you must use three pre-determined items in your piece!
We want you to create a deviation including three specific items that revolves around our theme of love:
Your deviation must contain these images:
How you incorporate these items around the theme of love is up to you!
Of course, you may use more than the objects above, but all three of those objects must appear. Feel free to create whatever inspires you! Maybe someone is creating a model tree with olive-colored leaves in a bottle to give to his love. Or, maybe two olives are sitting in a tree, sipping wine from a bottle. Whatever your mind creates, we want to see it!
You can draw, take a photograph, write a story, use

The right Manga Anatomy-Does this exist?People often say: "Your anatomy isn't right."The right Manga Anatomy-Does this exist?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I admit, anatomy IS difficult. But there are so many styles like more chibi or more realistic and so the proportions of the body changes.
I would answer this question with a yes and a no.
Yes, because if the character you draw has 4 fingers, it's wrong. Or the figure can sprain their body unnaturally so that just looking hurts. Then it's really wrong.
You have to understand the basics of anatomy.
But isn't it a matter of the artist's style how realistic the proportions have to be?
I think CLAMP's characters in "Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle" have way too long bodies and limbs or the characters in "Pokemon", they are all without muscles and without body fat.
And not to mention the female chest... From not visible to fat balls.
As you can see there is artistic freedom till a certain limit.
It's up to the artist's taste.
The difference between a mistake and style is: knowing how it actually has to look like.
What do you think about i
DA Witch Hunts, Righteous Indignation. Fuck You.STFUDA Witch Hunts, Righteous Indignation. Fuck You.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some people on here spend more time 'hunting', tracking and analysing supposed art-thiefs than producing actual art or contributing.
I have seen a 13 year old girl bombarded with multiple insults / threats. In a group admin discussion, the deviants were saying the young girl should be 'gassed' - and that 'Hitler would have been too kind for her'. She was tormented into quitting the site by a large group of women. If you think that's kool, then fuck you.
I have seen feuds tear across social platforms and various sites because of 'copying' or alleged copying, causing insurmountable aggrevation and pulling others into the crossfire.
I have seen Facebook art sites attacked my the 'righteous indignation' brigade, attacking genuine art appreciators like evangelical lunatics.
I get messages daily about this stuff. Many of the messages do not even come from the artists themselves, but 'concerned parties'. Please, I DO NOT CARE. With the exception of the famous Chad Love Lieberman case, mo

But, in that time I did manage to gather up 509 points!
So, what am I going to do with them you may ask? Give them away of coarse! So here is how I shall do it.
What can we win?
There will be 2 winners, one winner will receive a 1 month sub (or 396 points, point equivalent) and the other 100 points. The remaining points left over will be donated to dAWishingWell.

Dolling 101 (Or.. Dolling for Beginners)Dolling 101 (Or.. Dolling for Beginners)4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello, welcome to Dolling 101! We'll be going over all the basics that every beginner doller should know. There's a lot, so let's get to it!
Lesson 1: Terminology/Vocabulary
What is a Doll?
It might help to begin this article by telling you what you're reading about! A doll, or as we call them on DeviantArt, Digital Dolls, are small graphics, usually pixel-art, of people and characters. People create these by taking a base body another person has made, and creating art on it - designing clothes and hair, and turning the blank template into whatever kind of character they can imagine.
I will go over dolls more in detail, but that's the very basic description. Please, read on!
What is a Base?
Bases! You're probably familiar with this term. That's right, those pixel line-arts of bald/naked people that

I know that many deviants have had a rough past year. I know I have. For some, it was the economy, for some changes in their families and loved ones, and I know for some it has even been on deviantART. We have all had struggles, but this time of year, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, is as good a time as any to thank people for what we DO have.
In this world of little, we all have something we hold dear to our hearts. Now is the time to say thanks.
So, what I would like to invite everyone to do is in the next 48 hours (Today + Thanksgiving), fave this journal to show your support, then comment with 4 things you are thankful for:
1 thing on deviantART you are thankful for
1 thing with your family, loved ones, friends, etc. you are thankful for
1 thing in your life you are thankful for
