Calling All Professionals and Organizations
DeviantART is getting a tremendous, positive response to our call for support for the application by DAdotART for the .ART domain.
We now have a special request for professional artists, art directors, creative directors, curators, educators and others employed directly in the arts to show their support in their professional capacities.
We also have a special request to members of the deviantART community who belong to organizations involved in the arts to submit an indication of support from the organization.
The idea of an address on the Internet ending in .ART is compelling to all of us in the arts. It would instantly verify an intention on the part of that location completely different than the intentions sh

This was our first podcast, so it's a little rough around the edges. We'll of course try to make it better with each new one. Thank you everyone for the questions, we had quite a number of unusual ones. This week's podcast features :iconTomPreston: , :iconHumon:, and :iconDetail:

SYAC is on a bit of a hiatus while I try and figure out how best to proceed with the series. I've been conflicted with what to do with it for a long time now. I'm thinking about trying out user suggested strips, kinda like how I tried out user suggested questions.
If you have any suggestions on how I should proceed with SYAC, I'm all ears. I want to keep go
Taking GameStop Down a PegLast year Moviebob (aka: The Game Overthinker) made a video http://www.screwattack.com/shows/partners/game-overthinker/game-overthinker-episode-41-revolution in which he detailed the bad position the video game industry is in thanks to GameStop. Since the latest Mario, Zelda, and COD games have just hit shelves, I thought now would be a good time to try putting his suggestions into effect.Taking GameStop Down a Peg3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to try and use my platform here on DA to reach out to my fellow gamers and recommend that, if possible, you don't buy your big ticket titles at GameStop for the next few months.
I'm not gonna give any lengthy reasons for doing so, all that can be found in the video link. I just personally have issues with GameStop (the company not the employees), and want to do my part to take them down a peg.
So if you can, don't go to GameStop to buy your big ticket titles unless there really are no other stores available to you. Go to Target, Walmart, Best Buy, or buy online. If you need to go to GameSto
My Thoughts on Occupy Wall StreetFor the past couple of weeks I've been getting a few suggestions that I make some artwork in support of the "Occupy Wall Street movement. I've thus far refrained from doing so because I honestly don't know enough about the movement to definitively put my weight behind it. Unlike supporting the gay rights movement which have clearly defined goals they want to achieve, thus far the OWS doesn't seem to have any clear agenda.My Thoughts on Occupy Wall Street3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Personally I don't really understand what the OWS stands for other than being angry at excess spending, which I kinda thought was pretty universal to begin with. And while the OWS is becoming a huge thing and spreading all over the country like wildfire... since there's no clear protest, no leaders, not even any clear goals... I don't really understand what they hope to accomplish or how they expect anything to actually get done.
Don't get me wrong. I support the right to protest. Protesting is a peaceful way to demonstrate your beliefs and potentially effect change i

First of all, I hope you all had a splendid week. There were some exciting new changes on dA this week. The one that most of you should be already aware of are username changes. The deviantART community as a whole seem to be split on whether it's beneficial to the community. I'd really love to hear what you think about it all.

Wayne White: An Embarrassment Of TalentsWayne White: An Embarrassment Of Talents2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

I am bringing your attention to a documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, that
deeply inspired me after a screening last week. The life wisdom and positive
philosophy unfolding over a lifetime of living as an artist was deeply motivating.
I invited Wayne White, the subject of this documentary, to join deviantART afterwards.
I thought this would be something you would enjoy no matter where you might be at
on your own personal journey as an artist. While watching this I was also reminded
of the heartfelt explanations by many artists of what it means to choose the life of an Artist.
"Do what you love, It's going to lead where you want to go."
Please stop and say hello and welcome seewaynewhite in his first week at deviantART.

The second book: appearance, traveling list etc.Hello guys!The second book: appearance, traveling list etc.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today the bookbinding glue finally arrived at my house, so I will start with the second book on the weekend. Exited? I am ^^
I will make (or at least I will try to make) a video about the binding, but until I upload it it will take a while...
So, what I wanted to ask you:
How shall I do the cover? On the first book there is a steampunk compass rose, so I want to stay at "steampunk themed" travel and was thinking about the following options:
- a map
- a zeppelin
- an astrolabe
- one of your ideas. Do you have a suggestion?
Please comment and let me know which one you want/ if you have another idea.
So, it is time for some stats ^^
Land the book is in at the moment: England
Entries so far: 2, the third is in progress ^^
well then, here is the traveling list:
The ones with a red dot in front of their name should give me their adress as soon as possible, if the book comes to the country you live in and I don't have your adress I will have to d

So many artists underpricing...It makes me really sad.So many artists underpricing...1 month ago in Personal More Like This
When an artist you want to commission finally open their commissions back and all of their slots are taken in less than a minute.
And I'm sure all the slots would still be taken if the price was increased of x2-x10.
So many artists are still underpricing themselves. People make it a standard for art to sell for so cheap and whenever someone charge more than this standard, which is probably still underpriced, people complain.
By underpricing yourself, you are also contributing to keep the price standard of art low on this site. Charging low can be insulting to other artists, but also to yourself.
Please, don't ever feel like you need to underprice yourself, because of the fear of what other might think or say. You art is worth more than that. There will always be someone complaining, you cannot please everyone. Your time, the efforts, the skills you gained over years of hard work, is worth far way more than a few cents/points.
If you ever open your commissions an
