Introducing the New Today PageIntroducing the New Today Page1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Welcome to Today on DeviantArt.
The Today page is the place to start your day. It's the pulse of the DeviantArt community. When art-related news happens around the world, deviant artists are among the first to respond in the most evocative ways possible. We're proud to unveil the Today page — the new human and dynamically powered newspaper for the community that reflects the stories inside of DeviantArt as they pertain to art, fandom, pop culture, and world culture.
Designed to showcase a variety of content — including editorial pieces, Journals, contests, and even deviants new to the site, the Today page reflects the undercurrent of what's happening now — both online and off.
“The new Today page is impressive. It's certainly much more dynamic and engaging now than it ever was.” —thetaoofchaos

Throughout each day, the Today page updates with

The Price Cap For Commissions Has Been Raised!One of the most common requests we received upon launching Commissions was to raise the price cap to make it higher than 4,000 Points. As of today, the price limit when setting up Commissions has been raised from 4,000 Points to 8,000 Points.The Price Cap For Commissions Has Been Raised!2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
We're excited to see the increased usage of the Commissions platform and the wide variety of work that artists have been offering. With this increased limit, we're hoping to give artists more flexibility with the types of Commissions they offer, and more importantly, allow artists to earn more for their high-quality creations!
- READ PLEASE - about the hacking thingEDIT: creowl did it with catb0at together :3- READ PLEASE - about the hacking thing1 year ago in Personal More Like This
i think everyone was pretty confused about all the stuff that happened, if you're still, i' explain things here
so i got hacked by a girl named amazayns (which isnt a secret anymore either, so i can say it).
first, creowl has posted a journal that herself hacked me, but that wasn't true
creowl got hacked too, i dont know if the journal by her was written before or after the hack, so i dont know if she or the hacker wrote it
by the way, shes still on dA so good luck searching.
amazayns wasnt hacked, she told me on skype by herself that she hacked me.
but she won't tell the reason, which i think is very cowardly :/ whyever.
sooO i got my account back, thanks to the awesome dA-staff who helped me!
all my (fucking 26k) points are still there and im damn glad haha so greedy XD
okay, i'm reuploading the most of the art again, because the hacker stored everything, so be warned of art spam : D
im glad, that i can upload all my art that i dre
Introducing the New NavigationIntroducing the New Navigation1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Explore the full range of DeviantArt.
With better organization and improved structure, our new navigation creates a more streamlined site experience. Features like Today, Undiscovered, and What’s Hot have been given more prominence, while the More menu is now easily accessible with its simplified, new look. The addition of infinite scroll on Daily Deviations allows you to quickly discover even more hand-selected deviations. This all adds up to more control over what you use most and makes it easier to discover great artists and their art.
The More menu, which was previously available next to the DeviantArt logo, has been better organized and moved to a more prominent and convenient location. This change was based on community feedback that its previous placement was hard to find, and its contents overwhelming.

Introducing TagsIntroducing Tags1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Discover more of your favorite topics.
Tags create landing pages around topics — making it easier to discover related artwork, bringing together artists and art appreciators, and forming communities around common interests. As DeviantArt grows and creates new ways to discover great content, we believe tags will play an important role in better surfacing artwork.
Tag Deviations, Collections, and Status Updates
You now have the ability to tag your deviations and Collections. Tags added to your deviations will be publicly viewable — this is a change from the previous use of keywords, which were private. Visitors can learn about your work by viewing how you tagged it, and can find more works by you and other deviants based on tags. Tags can also be used in comments, Status Updates, Journals, and Collections.
Tagging your deviations and Collections will improve their visibility across the
Introducing Improved CollectionsIntroducing Improved Collections1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Giving curators the recognition they deserve.
With the launch of the Watch Feed, you can also now watch Collections made by other deviants. Collections are surfaced through the Watch Feed, creating a new way to discover and expose artwork on DeviantArt. Collections have been given additional exposure by appearing on deviation pages as well as tag pages.
“I am loving Collections as well. I am proud of my Collections and am glad they will finally be getting notice. And it also gives more exposure to the artists as this is more viral in nature than simply faving something then making an art feature journal to share it with others.” —GillianIvy
When you watch someone, you’ll automatically be watching all of their Collections — but you can also choose to enable or disable watching Collections on a deviant

Product Spotlight: CalendarsProduct Spotlight: Calendars2 years ago in Personal Journal More Like This
What did the thief who stole a calendar get?
How many months have 28 days?
All of them!
The first time that I heard that calendars were given as gifts I was working at a calendar shop in the mall. This was a while ago, around the time N'Sync and the Backstreet Boys were the big thing. Ever since that time, I have been buying a calendar for my mother every year.
There is no finer selection of calendars than in our deviantART shop. It shouldn't be hard to find a calendar that fits your taste.
The calendar will contain 14 beautiful images, 12 interior images and 2 cover images, printed on thick spiral bound 8.5 x 11 inch (22 x 28 cm) paper. The week will start on Sunday and end on Saturday.
As you can see, there are no holidays listed. There are so many different federal and religious holidays around the world that it would be overwhelming to add them. This wi
Moving on... CONTEST! WOO!That last journal was a doozie wasn't it? Let's do something fun instead and get our minds out of the muddy waters of art definitions for a minute.Moving on... CONTEST! WOO!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked to do a mini drawing competition. Kinda like what :iconhumon: just did. So here's a really basic run down of the rules in no way copied and pasted from her journal with minor alterations: j/k
The Drawing Competition:
1. Draw any of TomPreston's characters (SYAC, Alex Ze Pirate, or any smaller groups) in London.
2. Upload the image to your dA gallery.
3. Comment on this journal (or the main Fresh Epics comment box) with a link to your image.
- I'll then +Fav/add to collection it.
- I'll look though the collection and pick the winners.
Winners will get Alex Ze Pirate book 2 and SYAC Book 1, plus posters! YAY!
It should go without saying but parodies, trolling, hate art, or explicit sexual stuff = instant disqualifying. I mean, that should be a given but it needs to be said I suppose.
Deadline: A week from today: May 16th.
Kony 2012I've gotten a lot of requests to talk about this, which coincidentally happened right along side my two political cartoons taking off like wild fire. Dunno if it was an accident or bad timing, but right now it seems like everyone wants me to talk about Kony... which I honestly don't know why because I'm not a journalist and everyone else is making such a big deal about it I don't know what else I could offer to the discussion other than "yup, this is going on, check out the links."Kony 20124 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now keep in mind this next bit will be very scarce in details because I still haven't been able to muster up enough facts and everyone else seems to already know so much, so I apologize if it's a bit condensed.
Who is Kony?
The LRA (Lord's Resistance Army) is a religious militant group which operates in several countries including Uganda, Sudan, and the Central African Republic. Formed in 1987 they gained prominence and attention for their extremist atrocities committed against civilians and ch
Goals...?I've been thinking about this for a while now. What exactly do I want to do with comics? What are some of my goals? What's the future hold for my stuff? Here are just a couple of stream of conscious thoughts:Goals...?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't want to be big on YouTube, that's for sure. I've never liked getting in-front of the camera, I don't have the time or ambition to work on animations anymore, and I certainly can't crank out videos as fast as some of the big guys over there. It's a huge competition and I just don't want to have anything to do with that. I think my youtube page is marked private and you have to have specific links to view anything. I might make an odd video here or there, but they're most likely just goofy things I do for fun, not for any sort of attention or recognition.
I'm curious about how I should move forward with DA. I think a majority of my haters are outraged that I'm popular on DA and that I'm content with drawing simple cartoons when I'm obviously talented enough to do more comple

$30 Commissions -OPEN-Well, it's been about 6 months so... I'm gonna start accepting commissions again.$30 Commissions -OPEN-3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't generally do commissions very often because I'm pretty bad at mailing things and replying to e-mails... So I'm gonna try to streamline this process to make it easier for all of us. Sound good? Please read the rules carefully below. They're pretty basic stuff, and I've included a template at the bottom to make the process even simpler.
***RULES PLEASE READ***
1) Price: Flat rate of $30 per page. I'm at liberty to add an additional $5-$10 if I feel the work is more ambitious than the flat rate. For example, don't expect to commission me to draw all 600+ pokemon for $30, that's just silly. We'll discuss prices more in e-mails if it comes up, but for the most part $30 should cover just about everything.
2) No fetish stuff.
3) I'm only going to accept digital commissions. I'm absolutely awful at sending original artwork through the mail, and I don't want to keep people waiting for their work. Wh
