Defeating the Devil's Strategies
All of us make tracks through the valley of failure. Then the key question is, What we will do next? Sadly, many believers who stumble give up a vibrant kingdom-serving life for a defeated existence. But failure can also be a chance for a new beginning of living in Christ's strength.
In pride, Peter thought his faith was the strongest of all the disciples' and swore that even if the others left Jesus, he never would (Mark 14:29). Yet when the time of testing came, he denied even knowing Christ--and did so three times (Matt. 26:69-75). Satan hoped the disciple would be so wounded by his own disloy

*** This is in not way written as to be lectue, its more some thoughts I have and a hope to inspire some different thinking about artworks.***
Who are you as an artist ?
- I would certainly not say its an easy question, asking myself that I find it quite tricky to answer, I think a more valid form would be "What defines you as an artist ?" and if follow up with a few more question it instantly inspires thought, at least I think.
* Do you dare to be different ?
* Do you take advantage of the tools you have ?
* Do you give up on an idea if it does not work out the first time you try ?
And you can go on and on posing more question and sub-questions, but cutting through all that I believe Is where it all lies, it is not hard to take the easy route and base work of others people successes, I dont think any artist has not gone down that route.
Personally I think it is an important an invaluable tool, but also equa
Site Update: Staff Retreat, .Art, deviantMEETsIn this week's Site Update, we don't have any publicly visible changes, as our Devious Technology (dT), Product, and Product Marketing teams are all still at a staff retreat!Site Update: Staff Retreat, .Art, deviantMEETs3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
At the beginning of the week, the dT team worked on improving our internal development tools to increase efficiency. Then, on Wednesday, we let any staff members at the retreat pitch fun and exciting ideas for deviantART features that could be built in two days. After each feature idea was pitched, everyone from dT chose which projects they'd like to work on. Throughout the year, engineers primarily work on projects that are assigned to them, so sometimes it's important to turn the tables and let them choose projects in which they're most passionate and excited about.
The purpose of these two-day "hackathons" is to build and demonstrate a proofs of con

Change to Literature Preview Images
Preview images for literature deviations are now placed within a scrolling literature thumb. In the past, any preview image a deviant set would take the place of the scrolling literature thumb, making it difficult to distinguish visual art thumbnails and literature thumbnails.
This change allows for a more uniform thumbnail appearance around the site while also ensuring that each artist is still able to comfortably represent their work.

Ok i just spent my weekend with kodee and his family ;u;
I always feel so happy after seeing him xD
After leaving his house i kept blowing him a million kisses as i walked down the street humming dumb love songs to myself.
Then (craving some freedom) I walked to the school yard that looks over the mountains and farms, just to see the far off city lights and stars.. also a few jets in the sky.
Stupid boy with your head in the stars.
I can't help it.
And because Kodee is so sweet he fixed my blonde skunk stripe xD //made it lighter and threw in some orange.
I'll take pics when i get my phone back mabye, See my unconfident face being all: "huugggnghhhhhhhghhhhhh"
That's the sound of my face.
So if anyone ever actually meets me... that's what my face will do.
ACTUALLY. I will i most likely hug you to death, give you a brofirst OR BOTH.

deviantART on our Lucky 13As you get older, you may begin to see birthdays as a distinctive point in time. A time for reflection on past successes, past roadblocks, past lessons. I also see it as an opportunity to look forward, set goals, aim ridiculously high. I'm sure everyone's heard people joke about disliking getting older and lamenting another year passing, but not me. Not yet, at least. The wisdom and hard lessons I've had to learn over the years helps me map out my immediate future. I may stumble, sure, but I also have a lifetime of overcoming obstacles and analyzing achievements to guide my decisions. All I can do is keep learning and growing.deviantART on our Lucky 132 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Love that Binds SDCC's Artists' Alley.If you participated in Artists' Alley this year on the floor of San Diego Comic-Con, in the far left corner of the Con by Hall G, then this is a journal especially for you. It's also a journey for readers, or members of deviantART who want to get a glimpse into something incredible deviantART's community does each year.The Love that Binds SDCC's Artists' Alley.2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The event this year was brilliant. We are so incredibly proud of every exhibiting artist in the alley. And today, we're just as war-torn and beaten up from all the action as you are. This is my first productive cycle on our first day off in a few weeks. I probably should be doing what I imagine our other teammates are doing, relaxing! Instead, my heart is pounding, my mind is racing, my jaw clenching at times. Some things just need to be said and I can't rest until they are.
We're also proud of the patrons who visited Artists' Alley and either spoke with artists about their projects, commissioned or purchased illustrations, comic-books, etc. and supported the ~200 artis

Sta.sh Visual Refresh
Today we have released a visual refresh of Sta.sh, deviantART's upload and publishing platform, giving it a cleaner, more modern look. One of the most apparent things you'll notice is a major change in the header, which is now white, to match the rest of Sta.sh. In addition, when viewing something in another user's Sta.sh, the topbar will display their icon and username, to indicate that you are in their Sta.sh and not your own.
In addition, we've made
