April's Challenge: Stalk a $taffer or CV ResultsIn April, we asked group members to stalk a CV or $taff member to help dispel the myth that these people are too important for everyday deviants to get to know. In fact, many of them produce great art and have fun personalities just like you and me!

PE Interview with DD Suggester Minato-KushinaAs part of Daily Deviations PE week we have interviewed the lovely `Minato-Kushina who has been suggesting DDs since November 2010. She has since then had over 500 suggestions accepted and as a result of her regular suggestions, made her name known on the DD page.PE Interview with DD Suggester Minato-Kushina1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
What first got you interested in wanting to suggest DDs?
I don't really remember the exact point when I started paying attention to DDs. I guess, I saw these beautiful pictures at the bottom of my page. Gradually, I understood that they were a kind of "award" for outstanding pieces. I was also wondering how some people could suggest DDs! By searching here and there, I found the way.
I eventually decided to send my first suggestion to ^rydi1689, the then Fan Art Gallery Moderator. She is so kind, she accepted it immediately! This encouraged me to suggest more and eventually to love this task. I am generally shy with others. So this gesture, although it may seemed normal to her, it was

DDs: Suggester's frustrationsWelcome to a new journal in this mini series about Daily Deviations. In the first one I let you know about what I think DDs represent, and then about some of my personal criteria to select them.DDs: Suggester's frustrations1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Now is time to focus on the suggesters. Those amazing (almost always human) beings who take a moment of their lives to go the extra mile when finding an amazing deviation and suggest it for consideration as a Daily Deviation. Ya know? I wouldn't be able to feature so many amazing art on my own! So before anything else, I want to take a moment to thank all the amazing people who suggest. Thank you guys!
As a person who also suggests DDs once in a while, I do understand the frustration suggesters often get. So I would like in this occasion to explain some of the reasons why th

Daily deviations tend to be a controversial topic within the community and whether or not a DD is worthy of the feature is, as such, often discussed.
As a CV for Icons & Handhelds I often find it interesting to read these discussions, since that way I can see what the community expects of the features, but the recent negativity on the Icons & Handhelds DDs is something I would like to address, which is why I'm thankful I'm given this opportunity during the Daily Deviation PE-week. I will try to explain why I think icons and handhelds are worthy of the feature and why they may be dismissed just a bit too quickly.
Let's begin at the beginning.
When deviantART first started, it was a site that mainly geared towards customization. Be it wallpapers or icons, if you take a look at some of the first DDs. So how come there'

What it's all about
We are looking for the best story told through an image. There is a timeless saying 'A picture paints a thousand words.' We don't just want a thousand words, we want a short story captured in a single image.
This contest is made possible by Enrico Casarosa from Pixar, who donated his time and talents to inspire DeviantArt's members!
Enrico Casarosa is an Italian artist living in the USA, and has a lot of experience behind him. Before directing La Luna, Enrico worked as a story artist. He has been with Pixar for about ten years, and his work is featured in Cars, Ratatoullie and Up. Previously he was at Blue Sky Studios where he worked on Ice Age. La Luna is Enrico's first foray into directing, and the short is eagerly anticipated worldwide, to be shown in cinemas before Pixar's new feature film, Brave.

For ease of access we've started to put all of the previous Project Educate articles into the relevant folders within our gallery. This means that if you want to read up on a certain topic that has been covered during Project Educate, you can head over and find it really quickly. Within People & Portraits there are several sub-categories that are managed by specific Community Volunteers, one of these is Artistic Nude. You should direct all of your Artistic Nude Photography suggestions towards ^Nyx-Valentine rather than a general photography CV such as myself or ^3wyl Additionally, ^Nyx-Valentine covers the Fetish Photography Galleries, so again, direct your suggestions to her.Project Educate: Artistic Nude + Fetish Recap1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Photography Troubleshooting: Capturing AutumnFor many Photographers, Autumn is now officially here and is one of the most exciting seasons to capture in terms of colour, change and vistas. Early morning mist, late afternoon sun, orange, red and golden hues - Autumn has a lot to offer in many countries. If you're like me, Autumn often arrives all at once and it can be tricky to know how to make the best of the season before it's over. A couple of days of high winds and rain can ruin the best Autumnal captures by ripping the leaves down before you've even got the chance to snap - so it's great to be prepared for the season.Photography Troubleshooting: Capturing Autumn1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Leading lines are particularly useful. Yet so many people quote ' Look for leading lines...' or 'You've captured the leading lines here perfectly' and really do we even know properly what they are? The purpose of a leading line is to draw a viewers eye into the photograph and then on a journey - through it. Think of it as a visual narrative. They can be intentional and ind
