Everyday we're CV'ingAs a Community Volunteer - I do as much or as little within the community that I feel comfortable doing. We're not pressured to do this and that, we don't even have to give a Daily Deviation every day, we choose how we promote our selected galleries/chats and forums and we're not fixed to any specific rule on how much or how little we do. But I do believe that it's important to share with you just what the community volunteers do and why we do it. More importantly it's so easy to get lost on this site full of many people - and miss out on the awesome that's going on. So I'm going to share with you exactly what the latest awesome is...Everyday we're CV'ing2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

As part of Graphical Art History Month I will be interviewing some of your Community Volunteers
Today it's the lovely KovoWolf - Community Volunteer for Anthro Art
Hi KovoWolf, tell us a little about yourself and your style of Art.
Hello! My name is Amber Mills and I am a freelance digital artists.
I have always loved to draw and doodle ever sense I was really young.
I have always had an inspiration for art and I owe a lot of my artistic roots to my grandfather who used to work for Disney on some projects doing sketches and cartoons.
My style derives from inspiration I get from within. Anything and everything I am feeling and want to express I put on 'digital pen and paper'. That is why I love art so much. Its an expression of raw and tempered emotion.
What is it that attracts you to Graphical Art?
I love the flexibilit

Art for someone in your life - call for artists"Would you like to help end violence against women? "Someone in your Life" is looking for artists to help with our crowdfunding campaign!Art for someone in your life - call for artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
45% of women in the UK experience sexual assault, domestic violence or stalking. That's practically one in every two women subjected to violence simply for being a woman. But numbers are too abstract; too easy to ignore. So here's what I want you to do. Walk into a room, any room, and count the women. Now try to imagine that half of those women in the room with you, half of any arbitrary group of women, will have experienced horrific acts of gender-based violence at some point in their life. Think of the women in your life: your mother, your sister, your partner, your daughter, your best friend. Half of them have or will at some point experience violence because they are women. This not about some abstract 45%, some women "out there". This is about someone in your life.
Someone In Your Life aims to give women a space to speak out and tell their stori
Digital Art Feature - Fantasy."Fantasy art is a genre of art that depicts magical or other supernatural themes, ideas, creatures or settings. While there is some overlap with science fiction, horror and other speculative fiction art, there are unique elements not generally found in other forms of speculative fiction art. Depictions of ancient myths and legends, as well as depictions of modern day fantasy in the form of divine interventions and other magical or supernatural forces, are very common elements, and help distinguish fantasy art from other forms. Dragons, wizards, fairies and other fantastical and mythical creatures are common features in fantasy art." - Wikipedia.Digital Art Feature - Fantasy.2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Stamps are a great way to show your support for a project, a person or a group of people, spread awareness for a cause or promote a contest. It is also valid to do them just for fun, with just a funny image and/or message.
Since their introduction to the deviantArt galleries, millions of stamps have been created with a great variety of messages, both silly and serious, and you can see them all over the place, from journals to profile widgets.
The Community Relations department exists to encourage, facilitate and develop the relationship with our deviantART community. Our goal is to nurture our community by encouraging, stimulating artists to create, collaborate, and participate in a friendly, safe, and supportive artistic environment.

Welcome to the newest edition of the Digital Art Newsletter. Here you'll find the latest going-ons in the Digital Art Community.
Want to be the next Digital Art CV?
No, it's not that my term is about to end, I still have some months left, so sorry, you'll have to deal with me for some time yet But I figured out it's never too early to talk about this.
Some time ago, I wrote a journal in which I mentioned how there are always a lot of people wanting to become a CV one day and that's great! The problem is that many people think that you need to get the ^ symbol to start doing what a CV does, but if you have this mentality, sorry to tell you my friend, but you're already a step behind.
In reality, is before you get the symbol when you start doing "CV things" and it's precisely this what gives you a bigger chance to on
Daily Deviation Suggestion Drive!Back By Popular Demand!Daily Deviation Suggestion Drive!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In January of 2012, the community was challenged by thorns to do something about their complaints on dA. Thus was born this very group! But before the group, it was just a fledgling idea on LiliWrites's account that began with a DD Suggestion Contest. The results of that contest were overwhelming. And so, under the prodding of quite a few Community Volunteers, we're going to do it again!
UPDATE: Less than 1 week in and we've already got 100 suggested DDs and 2 accepted suggestions!! Keep up the great work guys and gals. Please remember that you need to leave a link to every deviation you suggest in this journa

PE Daily Deviations- Presentation of your workHello all!PE Daily Deviations- Presentation of your work2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Well we’ve had a fascinating week so far; a week which hopefully has provided some insight not only to the process of DD selection but helped you understand what we look for in DDs as CVs. As we draw to the end of this week, I bring you an article which will whet your Saturday with thoughts that don’t just apply to the DD feature, but something which should be a consideration to everything you submit to dA. I am talking about deviation presentation.
Why is Presentation important?
Art isn’t always about just being “creative”. There are techniques and skills which develop over time which contribute to the quality of the work you produce and alongside this comes a developed understanding of good presentation.
Good presentation could be anything from cropping a photograph, to spell checking your literature. These are common sense things that in the rush of wanting to show off your creativity can sometimes be

1. Miscellaneous vs Other
Over the past few months, we've been diligently working on cleaning up the category tree of old and unused categories. While most of this will go unnoticed by the community, what you will notice is the change from "Miscellaneous" galleries to "Other". The reason for this change is simple. The concept of Miscellaneous leads one to believe that it's a junk drawer category for everything under the sun when the intention was to be an "Other" category for deviations that don't fit well in other sub-categories of the tree. We're also working on u

As the old year begins to fade into the sunset, it is customary to reflect on the passing year and make plans for the upcoming one. Some do this in the form of resolutions, some people make action plans, some people just swing into the new year the same way they swung out of the old one Whatever way you intend to welcome in 2013, I hope you're surrounded by love and that you do it safely!
I've been reflecting on the year and like many, with some focus on the unimaginable events of the last few weeks. Specifically, the shooting in Newtown. I know that it's "human nature" to want to find
Presenting: Community VolunteersA BRIEF OVERVIEWPresenting: Community Volunteers3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, we've been proud to offer the opportunity to volunteer with deviantART. We believe that our volunteers play a crucial role in helping our community develop and grow in positive ways.
The Gallery Moderator (previously known as Gallery Director) and Message Network Admin (MN@) teams have become a much loved and appreciated role, with many volunteers proudly detailing their experience in applications to enter into successful careers with companies who all recognise the value of volunteering in such a vibrant and eclectic community. Did you know that some of our now full time Staff were once volunteers? fourteenthstar, Moonbeam13, pachunka, aunjuli, y2jenn, damphyr, Tachy-on, dxd and Ikue all volunteered in various roles -- and we are all very proud of that fact!
Over the past few months, we've been taking a close look at the volunteer experience -- what's worked, what hasn't worked a

So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognised in the crowd.
Today, we present to you the following deviants who have all been awarded Seniority as part of our 11th birthday celebrations. They have all been nominated
