Are you ready for the new challenge?
I hope you are and I hope you can make time to participate in this one. We've done similar challenges before, and they were always successful. So don't be afraid to give it a try. You just may find you can to it after all. That's why we call them challenges.
Our New Challenge
Our new challenge is called "Surreal The One Stock" and it features the stock of one of our staff members, senzostock. It's called a "one stock" challenge because everyone must use the same stock as their main focus. The examples below are from a one stock challenge:
In addition, we're learning about "Surrealism" with this challenge. We've done surrrealism before. It means,
"a style of art...stressing the subconscious or nonrational significance of imagery..."
"Surrealism style uses visual imagery from the subconscious mind t
Let's Play Llama Trading Game! Llama Lovin'!Let's Play Llama Trading Game!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Llama Badges launched on April 1st, 2010 at 12:00 AM Pacific, resulting in shenanigans and tomfoolery of epic proportions. This llama influx -- referred to by some as Llama Lovin', Llamageddon, or Llamapocalypse -- has taken the community by storm with 1,911,942 Llama Bagdes distributed by 414,940 unique deviants. That's a whole lot of love!
Let's Play Llama Trading Game!
After noticing that many deviants were using Points to bribe (for lack of a better word ) their way to Llama-based success, we've automated the process for deviants who want to participate in Points to Llama Badge transactions. Our new Let's Play Llama Trading Game automates the Point-giving process in exchange for Llama Badges.
Pretend spyed really wants Llama Badges. He could offer to pay 'X' Points

Why credit and notify?Hi all,Why credit and notify?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It's your friendly neighborhood Photomanipulation and Stock & Resources CVs here, eager to tell you about a problem that has become increasingly common not only in the photomanipulation community, but also in other communities throughout dA. The problem is that people are neglecting to credit AND notify stock providers that they have used their materials.
What is the overall rule and guidance about crediting your stock?
If you want to use other people's resources (including but not limited to stock photographs, brushes, and presets), dA requires that you exactly follow the rules of usage that those individuals lay out in their license or stock rules. That invariably means that you must CREDIT them with a link to their homepage at least, and NOTIFY the providers by sending them a link to your deviation, preferrably by note. Some providers require a direct link to the exact image or resource t

I have just recently received the opportunity to become the "Science Fiction and Space Art" Community Volunteer Gallery Moderator here on deviantART.
I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

Those people again! + doctor + ZOO PHOTOS!Hi!Those people again! + doctor + ZOO PHOTOS!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So many things to say today, I need to make it shorter
At first, THANK YOU for support, people, really!
I went to the doctor on Wednesday, although I already felt better. The doctor said I probably really have salmonellosis and I am already treated for it. Smoked salmon is probably to blame - and I ate it, because I wanted to be healthy
It is not a big deal, in fact I already feel completely healthy I have no pain or stomach problems at all. I am just on a diet (I need to drink a lot of coke, mineral water, three litres of drinks in general. And I need to eat over salted rice) and take some pills. But I am ok, just a bit tired. I was warned to not underestimate this illness, so I am a good girl and I stay at home. I just encouraged myself to try to eat some soup and chicken meat - nothing bad happen, so I think I am just fine
I was probably lucky - it was likely some weak type of salmonellosis and moreover it was even weaker illness in my case. So great!

I am still so sleepy I go to bed at 9 PM these days - so embarrasing
I also had to visit a doctor today (she wanted to check my blood and such, because she did not like my weight *is very ashamed*), nurse took my blood, which is always a horror for me. Well, I hope they would not find any awful illness like diabetes or so, I am scared
I came to the room and I was like: ,,Hello! I mean... you do not need to test my blood. I know why I am fat! It is because I used to eat only two big and quite unhealthy meals a day and I did not move at all! I started having 5 meals a day and I exercise - and I lost weight immediately!"
And the nurse smiled and said: ,,oh, you are afraid of a needle, are not you?"
Me: ,,Uh huh..."
And a mystery: after two months, I have almost the same weight, I lost only few kilos but in fact, I am absolutely sure I am much less fat. I really can wear clothes which were too small two months ago. I am really 100% sure I am less fat. But why doe

The webcam module is one of those modules you either understand or you don’t. For those of you that don’t Did You Know that the webcam module requires a direct URL to an image in order to work? In order to get an image to appear in your webcam module you need to first have the images hosted somewhere on the web. There are many free image hosting sites out there such as Photobucket or Imageshack or you can even use your own personal domain. Once you have hosted the image you must obtain a direct link to the image. Typically this can be achieved by right-clicking on an image and choose “view image” from the dialogue window that appears then copying the URL in the address bar for the page that loads. Most of these free image hosting websites take it a step further and will automatically generate this URL for you so all you have to do is copy and paste. An easy way to remember which URL you need to use is to look at the browser page the image i
Welcome to the Darkrooms: Digital & TraditionaThe Need for ChangeWelcome to the Darkrooms: Digital & Traditiona7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Creating and maintaining categories that meet the needs of audience and artists alike is always a challenge. Photography, as it has been since its inception, is constantly changing, as its tools and methods evolve. The introduction of the digital production and storage of images radically altered the implementation of photography forever, and while we do not encourage the general division of photography into traditional and digital, it is important to create spaces where photographers feel comfortable posting their work. One way that we can address the needs of the photography community is to divide the darkroom into two subcategories, digital darkroom and traditional darkroom. Since this popular umbrella category is defined by process rather than content, it does, in this instance, make sense to distinguish between the digital and analog tools that achieve the intended results.

My mother, the therapistWell, I finally told my mother that I want to be called Robin and that I'm genderqueer - actually, she used the word 'androgyne', but I'm not gonna complain. Because she was totally therapist-like, but tolerant and nice, and I hoped she'd accepted me.My mother, the therapist7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Half an hour later, she proved me wrong.
The person that easily accepted me being gay, and having a girlfriend, and wearing boy's clothes - this person thinks she's allowed to call me Anna, because she always did and because she was the one that gave me that name. She doesn't know, or care, that it hurts. I told her it's a bad word to me, but she couldn't understand and still calls me Anna. It hurts so much. I finally trusted her not to fuck things up and just accept me, because everyone told me she would, but no, she had to ruin everything. I'm glad I won't be with her for a week, because I can't stand her at the moment.
"But you've always been my daughter Anna!" Well, I'm not a daughter, and I'm not Anna anymore, and you

All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins a 3 months sub, our usual prize.

Over the years I’ve had a pretty straightforward view on gun control. Guns are dangerous and need to be restricted and made more inaccessible to prevent future acts of gun violence. I’ve never genuinely believed in the idea of banning all guns because I do think people DO need to have ways to protect themselves.
However, I’ve recently been thinking more about a different aspect to the gun control debate and it’s broader implications to other troublesome politically charged areas of our (United States) cult
