Apparel Collection: ALL dAY EVERY dAY“ALL dAY EVERY dAY” represents the artist’s constant love for making art. This drive and determination is always working in the back of our minds, always noticing inspiring things, always adding notes and drawings to notebooks, and always thinking creatively. DeviantART is a wonderful, swirling artistic ecosystem with a fertile breeding ground for this never-ending creative spirit.Apparel Collection: ALL dAY EVERY dAY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently at deviantART, we tried out a small-scale collaborative program, bringing in outside artists to illustrate pieces for the seasonal clothing line. For the piece ALL dAY EVERY dAY, I’m proud to introduce Tony Van Groningen, or tonybricker here on dA. It’s always a pleasure to hand an artistic brief off to an artist and have them come back with an exciting piece that can go a few rounds in collaborative sessions to make final. Working collaboratively brings multiple viewpoints to the drawing board and adds a great deal of richness to successful pieces.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the broken relationships between men and their razors. Donning their mustaches, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health - specifically prostate cancer.
Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.9 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, South Africa, Ireland, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Belgium and the Czech Republic. In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health cause across the globe, from Russia to Dubai, Hong Kong to Antarctica, Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, and everywhere in between.
No matter the country or city, Movember will continue to work to change established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to ed

American Comics, Manga...AND WAR!This is a major turning point in the history of comics, World War II. This period of time not only changed comics as we knew them, but also other areas in graphics such as propaganda posters. Now mid to late 1930's we've seen the birth of the modern comic book. Due to the war as well we're also now seeing the birth of war comics. An obvious example of this as I'm sure many of you have already guessed is Captain America Comics in 1941 (before American involvement in the war). Captain America was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby who worked for Timely Comics, which of course has now become Marvel Comics. He gained amazing popularity and is often fighting the Axis powers in World War II.American Comics, Manga...AND WAR!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

All About Colormorphs"Where is the king cheetah!?"All About Colormorphs2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
......you may be asking us, after the completion of the subspecies series. Well, the king cheetah is not a subspecies. Neither is the spotless cheetah, the woolly cheetah, or any number of other variations you may have seen or heard about and are wondering why we didn't mention them. They shall all be discussed here, in this journal:
All About Colormorphs
What is a colormorph?
A colormorph is a genetic mutation that causes the cheetah to have an abnormal fur pattern. These mutations are recessive genes, much like blue eyes and blonde hair in humans are recessive. Looking up the coat variations of a siamese cat, or any cat, gives an excellent example of colormorphs.

Pure JoyThis year (2011) for the Holidays I followed Bentley on a great adventure. He'd seen me stressing out all year and he finally put his paw down. I canceled the plans I had originally made. And he made me follow my heart. Even though I had my doubts.. It turns out, Bentley is wise.Pure Joy4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Off we were to Mammoth Mountain, on some last minute plans. The type where you know things are being rushed and so they won't go well. But Bentley had faith. So first he enlisted my Mom, jeanpat because he prefers when she feeds him. She gives him too much in his bowl!
And Viktoria o-KOUKLA-o plays with him in the mornings if I'm still asleep, so she's pretty key to having fun.
And chris keeps the evening games of Settlers of Catan going until the wee hours, so no one interrupts him (Bentley) when he's sleeping!

Six Word Story Contest - 7 3Mo.Subs to be won!A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.Six Word Story Contest - 7 3Mo.Subs to be won!4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
So getting to the point of this article, we are kickstarting this year with a six word story contest! We have some awesome prizes and hopefully enough freedom for you to enjoy yourselves too! Please support the contest and the article so that more can join in on the fun!
