Getting the Most out of dA: CommentingUsually, when you read something involving 'Commenting', you think of deviations and the commenting platform that allows other members of the community to voice their thoughts and opinions on the art shown. However, what is pretty evident, and something that most of us may forget, is that deviantART runs on the ability to give and get comments, be it on pieces of artwork, our profile pages, forums, and everywhere else in between.Getting the Most out of dA: Commenting1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
In a sense, without the ability to give and get comments, deviantART wouldn't be much of a website, much less #1 of online art communities around. Comments are not solely the cause of what makes deviantART what it is, but it has a huge impact on a lot of things. By giving and getting comments, not only do we interact with other members to really make this a community, we also have the ability to get our voices heard.
It's quite an odd concept with us all facing screens, typing out our thoughts and opinions, but one thing we shouldn't forget is that commen

Basically, I noticed a part of my profile seemed a little blank, so I decided to create a custom box on my page dedicated to featuring deviants of all talents weekly . The box will feature a recommended friend, and the deviant that recommended them. It will also include a tidbit about the recommended friend, including why you should check them out Each duo will be up for a week, and at the end of the month, I will collect all of the features and create one big journal feature, with everyone that participated that month.

Its been a long journey over the past few days, and let me tell you, I watched my message center explode with messages.... absolutely explode, but in a good way.Points for Premium Membership Winners - *UPDATE*1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There were 720 eligible deviants in this giveaway, talk about insane!
Sadly, of the 720, only five were able to be picked as winners, I wish that I could have offered more prizes, but I'm not made of money, and this is a stretch on my budget.
This deviation lists all 720 numbers randomized, and the ones colored in blue, and written on the side are the winning numbers. Going in numerical order, the winners are the following;
With the number 90, KiwaTec is the first winner! Congrats!
With the number 289, Lyrimn is the second winner! Congrats!
With the number 356, Kaess-desu is the third winner! Congrats!
With the number 485, :devyuuh-

Deviant DiscoveryDeviant Discovery2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
WHAT IS DEVIANT DISCOVERY?
Deviant Discovery is a weekly Journal Feature that focuses specifically on Deviants that have good art, but haven't gotten much attention for it. Every week, a new Deviant will be chosen, and a few of their artworks will be show in this Journal, along with a description of the artist themselves. This weekly feature will serve as an attempt to get under-appreciated artists more attention then they already have.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It will work in a similar way to Daily Deviations - either I could select a Deviant myself, or someone could be suggested by another Deviant. Once a Deviant is chosen, we'll find their best five Deviations to be featured in the Journal. Then, we'll give a short description of the artist's work, and a small explanation of why they were chosen. The feature will remain on the front of my page for seven days [168 hours; one week], so that the Deviant can get continuous attention. Suggestions could be s
Marketing Your dA PrintsOh marketing... it's every serious artist's permanent headache. What to sell, how to sell it, who to sell it to, how much to sell it for. While we can't give you the one perfect formula for that, here are quite a few tips on how to market your prints on deviantART and beyond.Marketing Your dA Prints3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Put your best art forward
You may think you want to offer everything you can for sale and that is understandable. However, think again. It's likely that not all works you offer for sale are ones that an art buyer might actually want to buy. Just like a potential buyer has to make a choice of what to buy, a seller is better off specifically selecting what to offer for sale and what not. While the saying "Quality over Quantity" is not a sure way to a sale, it's definitely a good strategy to get there.
It's better to offer only your fewer very best works for sale rather than all of your works.
Think like a customer

Tell me a joke or post a funny image/gif in a comment.
If you make me laugh I will reply with "Go ahead," and then send me the links or thumbs to 2 of of your own deviations you want featured
If you do not make me laugh I will reply with "Try again." You can try as many times as you want.
If you make me crack up you get four deviations featured!
***************** HEADS UP *****************
I do not find perverted things funny, so of course those jokes don't make me laugh. So don't even bother telling me a dirty joke, it won't work.
For now there are unlimited feature slots, so no competition
Even if I do not get your deviations up within the hour, I WILL get them up, do not worry. I am most likely sleeping or eating...

Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is one of my favourite games of all time, surpassed only by Morrowind, and I've been planning for a long time to put together a feature with original artwork. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since almost all Oblivion-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
Oblivion is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2006. The central plot revolves around the efforts to thwart the fanatical cult Mythic Dawn that plans to open the gates to the demonic realm of Oblivion. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are quest lines for several guilds, and many side missions. Despite being less diversified and immersive than Morrowind, the incredible amount of quality third-party add-ons add a lot of scope and replay value to the game.

Ruffnut and Tuffnut are grumpy brother-sister twins who bicker constantly and are forced to share a two-headed dragon. Both characters are fearless and a bit reckless at times. While Tuff has been able to get by just fine with his off-putting personality, Ruff's unladylike behavior causes problems. No wonder she's the last single lady on Berk!
