Birth of a New Category or Beginning of the End of Categories?
:icontechgnotic: by techgnotic
Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the truly amazing and inspiring response we've received for the Holiday Card Project! The cards continue to arrive at deviantART headquarters in a steady stream, day after day. We've received over 2,000 cards, and have already started distributing them to hospitals around the world.
With so many cards, there's a chance we'll be able to spread the holiday cheer to even more hospitals than originally anticipated -- and that's where you come in. We're making a call for volunteers, just like you, to distribute Holiday Card Project cards to your local hospitals!

DeviantArt Customisation ExplainedThis article, is my attempt to help answer a lot of questions I get from people asking about various ways of customising your dA experience. I attempted numerous times to write out a tutorial with code specifics but then I thought, no, there are already enough tutorials out there that are probably more specific and accurate than me. What I thought would be best, would be to compile a bunch of resources in an organised and explained way, so that you can each learn for yourselves the best way to customise your dA.DeviantArt Customisation Explained5 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Ok, this is definitely the most asked of all the questions . Rather than explain things to you myself, here are the tutorials that I have found most useful, as they provide exact code for you to copy and paste, and screenshots to show you how things should look when you do it yourself;

“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”
— Ray Bradbury
So spoke the recently departed Ray Bradbury, a seminal (possibly the seminal) American fantasy & science fiction writer. Today, aspiring sci-fi and fantasy writers study his novels and short stories as their core ed
Is this a Deviation?I was in Greece visiting my family recently... and after everyone went to sleep, I couldn't. I knew there was a beauty outside that I rarely have a chance to see. And a deep, primal hunger drove my need to be outside to breathe in.Is this a Deviation?3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It was pitch dark. I couldn't see anything but the stars and maybe the driveway lights. But my camera can see so much more.
That's the milky way coming just about almost out of that chimney of the little house where I was staying.

Collection: Dia de Los MuertosCollection: Dia de Los Muertos9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Dia de los Muertos
“Day of the Dead” is not the “Latin American Halloween.” On Dia de los Muertos, Mexican families visit the spirits of their dead in the cemeteries where they rest. They bring food and other gifts as part of a happy celebration of departed loved ones. Halloween originated with the fear of the sprits of the dead visiting the living so food was offered as bribery for the spirits to do no harm. It was a scary once–a–year intersection of the world of the living with the world of the dead. Day of the Dead continues to be a celebration as antidote to mourning the passing over of loved ones. It is about the ind

Stamps; For Beginners and Beyond
I have been contemplating an article that explains and showcases the power of stamps in the dA community for some time, and it seems almost appropriate in light of recent events, to create this article now.
This article aims to cover common questions around stamps, and provide links to resources, for creating stamps. Not only does this article aim to target beginners or those that do not know about stamps, but it also aims to feature some of the most creative examples of how artists have managed to do so much with such a small canvas. This article can even provide tips and inspiration for seasoned and experienced stamp-makers, whilst encouraging the appreciation of stamps by everyone all-round.
So what are stamps?
I'm sure this is a question that many of you encountering this article are already asking. Stamps are small, pixel creations (traditionally 99x56px in size), that originate from righ
