deviantART Skins & Scripts
(What are Skins and Scripts?)
The Stars of dAr - `Mirz123The Stars of dAr is a series where I interview one member of the deviantART Related (dAr) community each time, about personal and dA related matters. For today we have Mirz123! She creates fantasic stamps, sometimes fun and silly, but also often with an important and profound message, and always in her recognisable style. She's also an enthusiastic community member in many aspects, and can be found in many corners of the community. But enough about her from me - I'll hand the floor to Mirz herselfThe Stars of dAr - `Mirz1233 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hi Mirz123, thanks for agreeing to be interviewed
- Please tell us something about yourself!
By day I'm a mom who works as a secretary. By night, I don a cape and create emoticons, stamps, and write Lit. Though, looking at my gallery stats, I'm most-known for my stamps.

#SixWordStories: Monthly ShowcaseA type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.#SixWordStories: Monthly Showcase3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In our feature articles, we will be showcasing six word stories submitted to Freestyle folder.

1. Miscellaneous vs Other
Over the past few months, we've been diligently working on cleaning up the category tree of old and unused categories. While most of this will go unnoticed by the community, what you will notice is the change from "Miscellaneous" galleries to "Other". The reason for this change is simple. The concept of Miscellaneous leads one to believe that it's a junk drawer category for everything under the sun when the intention was to be an "Other" category for deviations that don't fit well in other sub-categories of the tree. We're also working on u

Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. futureI am proud to present you my first "official" Emoticon Contest.Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. future4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
At first I want to tell you something about the theme:
As you have read the theme is past vs. present vs. future, this means your entry has to include something from the past, present and future. The time isn't set, this means that the past could be just 1 day ago or 100 years ago it's the same with the future. For example: you could display how the emotes have lived in the past how they are living now and how they could live in the future.
Be creative and surprise me with your imagination
The Contest is divided into 2 Categories:
The first Category will be for deviants who would like to work alone. And the second category is for deviants who want to work with somebody (a collaboration category ;D) 2 deviants can work together.
But you could also enter in both categories!
Below you can find the rules of each category and what you have to keep in mind.
Another dAmn Interview! - hanketsu1717Another dAmn Interview! is a new series I'm starting up where I interview a deviant who is regular in the dAmn/Chatroom area of deviantART, and ask them to share their initial and current opinions on that area of the site. Since this is a new series I'd love some suggestions from you about how it can be improved, and any other questions you think should be asked. Thank you!Another dAmn Interview! - hanketsu17173 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. When did you start using dAmn compared to how long you've been on dA?
I've been on dA for 4 years now and I have been using dAmn for about a year now I had made my own chatroom ages ago, but never used it really. It was just something I made since I was able to. I was busy exploring other aspects of dA and my chatroom was left behind I then attended some chat events and enjoyed talking to deviants in the chats.
2. Did you find yourself drawn to any chatrooms in particular when you first started using them?
Not really...I would go

Emoti-Art Contest WinnersBig apologies for the late-ness in announcing the winners. Real life kinda kicked us, but even moreso, it was extremely difficult choosing winners. The level of skill and the quality of the pieces were amazing and it was a very difficult choice.Emoti-Art Contest Winners3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
With that in mind, the original contest called for a 1st and 2nd place in each category. We have added a 3rd and Honorable Mentions. Third place winners will receive 200 points and a feature -- Honorable Mentions 50 points and a feature.
Without further ado...the winners.

What a classic and iconic picture, and so cleverly done with emotes. The attention to detail and the skill involved was amazing and garnered the top spot in this category

A photograph is memory in the raw. - Carrie Latet
I recently spent some time (okay maybe hours!) exploring a photographic exhibition on the Isle of Wight - England. I had known that the exhibition existed for some years, but had never really ventured over there. It was held in the home and studio of a celebrated Victorian Photography - Julia Margaret Cameron. However it did include a nice variety of works - photographs from Dorothy Bohm who put together the book A world observed and a collection of shots taken at the famed 1970s Isle of Wight Pop Festival. It included images of Jimi Hendrix who performed at the festival just three weeks before his death. The images collated and exhibited were fascinating. But what really struck me was how far we had come in terms of camera equipment.
This was donated to the Margaret Cameron Trust by Graham Ovenden and was subsequent

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May

The Art of CodeThe Art of Code3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As written by ginkgografix in the Guide to the deviantART Related Gallery, The browser scripts and extensions category is for scripts that add new functions to (or modify current functions of) deviantART.com. Commonly these scripts are installed through Greasemonkey, but some are designed to install through web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox. Keep in mind that this category is for functioning scripts, not just ideas for scripts.
This is perhaps one of the most resourceful types of dA Related deviations But, how do you create these? In order to find out, I interviewed a couple of creators of scripts, user styles and apps.
Please tell me briefly about yourself and

Many people would like to make use of the Premium Membership features of dA, but of course not everyone is able to reserve some bucks for this, or to use them online. Thankfully, deviantART has a wonderful community where many people are willing to help each other out. One way to get a Premium Membership eventhough you cannot pay, is to participate in contests where you can win premium memberships, or points to pay for them - this list will hopefully help you find some to enter.
(Note that in this journal I will include contests with chosen winners only. There are also 'contests' around where the winners are in some way randomly assigned - perhaps you
