It's a Deviation Celebration!
DeviantART's 12 million members, the largest collective of artists anywhere in the world, have contributed nearly 100 million deviations! Let the countdown begin…

As a site that many different creatives call home – from photographers to game designers to culinary artists – what will the 100 millionth deviation be?! Will it be another Flash game to inspire Nintendo's game department? A Simpsons re-creation to compel a hire from Matt Groening? Something to inspire Shia Lebouf's next tattoo? It could be anything!

Bookmark this page now and check back frequently to see what will take home the honor of being named deviantART's 100 millionth deviation!


The Prize
The deviant who submits the 100 millionth deviation will be awarded the special prize of a lifetime Premium Membership. That's right! This lucky deviant will receive never-ending access to ad-free browsing, artist discounts, and whiz-bang site features for all eternity. This is not to be taken lightly, friends. It very well could be you!

Noteworthy Deviations
DeviantART would not be what it is today without all the wonderful contributions our artists have made, and continue to make, to our special community. Over the years, deviantART has had the pleasure of hosting many very special deviations. Here are a few we thought deserved a special mention:

(in no particular order)

                                                                                                                                         

Line Rider
One of the most popular deviations of all time. Since 2006, it has been downloaded over 2 millions times and went on to inspire the creation of a game that is now available on Nintendo DS, Wii and the iPhone.

The Simpsonzu
This deviation was such a viral hit that it compelled Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, to extend a job offer to the artist.

Prisoner of My Own
Shia Lebouf definitely +fav'd this deviation. How do we know? He tattooed it on his abdomen.

Xbox 360 plushie
kickass-peanut's deviation was picked up by XBOX magazine where it received a cult following. The artist went on to produce and sell the item by the plush-le.

Heart of a Lion
This beautiful photo won the Grand Prize in National Geographic's Ultimate Photo Contest. The win earned the artist a trip to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador.

Windows Seven December 07
xazac87's deviation became a viral hit as the official "first look" at the Windows 7 interface. After millions of pageviews, it was discovered that the image was incorrectly identified as a leak. The artist is still waiting for a job offer from Microsoft.

Animator vs Animation
alanbecker's stick figure animation became an Internet phenomena in 2008. It currently has over 7 million pageviews on deviantART and 5 million on YouTube.

Jaycee Lee Dugard
johnpaulthornton paints pictures of missing children soon after they go missing from their families. Eighteen years after painting this picture, Jaycee Lee Dugard was returned to her family.

Sprained Minds
suzi9mm submitted this community favorite in 2004. Maybe "favorite" isn't the right word.

Tetley Competition Winner
In 2003, gdphotography won a lifetime amount of Tetley Tea with this photo. Actually, we're not sure if he did, but he should have.



Who is deviantART?
Since August 7th, 2000, deviantART has given emerging and established artists a platform to showcase, promote, and share their work. Our 2,500 genres of art cover a vast array of styles, media and culture. From traditional art to digital art, fine art to anime, street art to fashion photography, film and animation to poetry and literature – incredible diversity and depth of creativity flourish on deviantART.

Please Note
All possible deviations from any possible category are eligible to hold the title as the 100 millionth deviation. To hold the title, the deviation must otherwise comply with the deviantART Terms of Service and Submission Policy; for example, it needs to be the work of the deviant who submits it. If the deviation falls out for non-compliance with the Terms of Service and Submission Policy, the next subsequent qualifying deviation will receive the honor of the title.
I thought deviantART had 100M deviations already?
DeviantART had surpassed 100 million image uploads to the site many months ago, but it has not yet reached its 100 millionth deviation. Many images that are uploaded to the site are not valid deviations, including those that are categorized as drafts or "scraps" and those that do not adhere to the Terms of Service. Please join us in celebrating the arrival of deviantART's 100 millionth deviation by bookmarking this page, watching the counter and adding comments.

Bueno, mi amiga y yo que leemos fics de latin hetalia, en general pasa que la mayoria de los autores son chilenos y como a mi me dan consejitos para escribir mejor aca les dejo mi diccionario (? de argentilupis (Inventado por mi amiga (?) okk, ni tiene nombre pero ustedes entienden. Eso espero xD


-Che: en general, va al principio de la oracion, es como para llamarte la atencion. Ej: Che, pasame la mayonesa (?

-Boludo/a: Acompaña la mayoria de las frases, se puede decir a un amigo porque en general no cuenta como insulto. Hay variaciones como el verbo "Boludear" y acotaciones como "bolu" (pero se usa mas la palabra completa) Ejs: Como andas, boludo? / Porque estaba boludeando y justo encontre un alien (? / Que haces, bolu?

-Pelotudo: Sinonimo de boludo, muy usado pero no tanto como boludo.

-Boludez/Pelotudez: Algo que es facil. Ej: La prueba esa era una boludez (Y reprobe (?)

-Arre: (Se pronuncia A-Rre (?) Es una mezcla de "Ah!" y "Re". Es dificil de explicar, ponele que vos decis algo que es cualquiera y usas el "Arre" para demostrar que no lo decis en serio. Tambien se le puede agragar un no, como diciendo "Arre que no" o algo asi. Igual ahora no se usa mucho, pero en una epoca se usaba tanto como el boludo (El hit del verano (?), igual ahora se usa mas el "Re que no" que todo es basicamente lo mismo pero bueno xD Ejs: Y la flaca salio volando. Arre que no!

-Flaco/a: Persona.

Lets Talk About Designs

Thu Jan 23, 2014, 5:44 PM


Because it has been irking me a lot lately.

Some of you may or may not have seen various bits of drama floating around player created breeds these past few months. Now, that doesn't really interest me, however something that has been brought up time and time again during these spats of drama is an issue that I feel is important to address: designs (and points).

Now, I might share the slightly unpopular opinion that artists should be charging for their designs. Which sounds like a reasonable thing here I'm sure, but a lot of people have been expressing the view that owners of breeds should do free customs, or designs. Which in my opinion is lunacy.

A design, like any other type of artwork, takes time. And I classify them as artwork, because they are. Making a good design is hard, think I'm lying? Then have a look around at all the bad points designs floating around. It takes time, patience and practice to get good at designing, and I think that work should be paid for in however the artist chooses. I have breeds that I make designs for, most of which are not free. Because I spend hours making them and I want some sort of payback, thank you very much. By all means, open a closed breed for creation, offer other means of getting one without having to shell out cash, but do not think for a second that you have any right to demand freebies from the creator. They don't owe you a damn thing.

You wouldn't go up to an artist whose paintings you admire and say "I want one, gimme." just because they were selling them to other people and you wanted one. 



As a side note: design pricing. Most of you are underselling yourselves (though this is an issue that extends throughout the artistic community). Think about how long it takes you to complete a full design. Think about the minimum wage (In Australia, it is $15 an hour for someone my age, but let's call it $10). If it takes you 30-45 mins on a design, like it does me, you should be charging at least $6-$7 equivalent for that design if it is a custom. So at least 500-800 points. I'll remind people that 40 points is $0.50. 40 points for a design is not okay D8

Surgery Update

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 23, 2015, 6:52 PM
Hello Rain Beaus, this is Jocelyn's wife, Kelly. Jocelyn has asked me to to give you all an update about her surgery earlier today.

It was long but successful. She will be in the hospital for about 4 days so you might be getting updates from her through me for a little while.

We both have been moved, humbled and blessed by the outpouring of love, well wishes, prayers and positivity that she has received during this trying time. We thank you all from the very bottom of our hearts.

My Christmas Experience

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 27, 2014, 6:05 PM
Last year, when I came down to visit family for the holidays, I ended up seeing my extended family on my dad's side (it was the first time I'd see them while presenting en femme).  It went pretty sour.  There were a couple dozen people there; four of whom said "hi" to me and nothing else. Everyone else just avoided me like the plague. My grandmother wouldn't even look at me. That hit me really hard and left me depressed for months (I don't think I ever discussed it on DA though).  Thankfully, progress has happened since, and over the course of the year I got back into contact with two of my aunts.  That's still only a fraction of the people that were there, but progress is progress.  

On that same note, while I didn't see my grandmother herself this year, she dropped off Christmas cards at the house.  The envelope actually reads "Joshalyn" while it still says "Josh" inside the card.  I... really have to give her credit for trying. This is actually kind of a huge step up from last year (even if it's probably only that much because my dad probably gave her an earful).

***

And then it was time do it all again, but with the extended family on my mom's side.  At night on Christmas Eve, two aunts came over (not to be confusing, but two different aunts from the ones mentioned above), who had both been told that I was trans, but were only seeing me as Jocelyn for the first time that night.  One was fabulous.  Right through the door, she was saying "Jocelyn" and "she" and "her", and I was thoroughly impressed and delighted. She may have misgendered me like once, but immediately corrected herself. She didn't even ask any rude or invasive questions. And all of this, from an extremely Catholic 70-year old woman. If anything, I never ever want to hear age or religion as an excuse for close-mindedness again (not that either was EVER a valid excuse), because this has honestly been one of the better reactions I've gotten.

On the other hand, my other aunt was very different. The first thing she said to me was, "Who are you?" At first, I took a lot of offense to that, but tried to play it cool. As the night wore on though, she said a lot of strange things. She'd forget basic words. She'd tell random stories that seemed to go nowhere. She might not respond when spoken too. In short, there might be something wrong with her, but it isn't transphobia. It didn't take long for any frustration I felt with her initial reaction to me to fade as I realized what was going on. That hit me kinda hard...

On Christmas itself, I would see my cousins and their spouses and their kids.  For the most part, things went well.  A couple of the littler kids were a little afraid of me, but I think I'd sooner associate that with them being babies the last time I saw them (to where they really wouldn't know me), rather than anything to do with my being trans.  The adults meanwhile, were probably coached before seeing me because while they greeted me and talked to me, no one asked me anything.  It's possible some of them weren't entirely comfortable around me, but they were at least respectful enough to be civil and treat me like a human being and talk to me (a HUGE step from the previous year with the other side of my family).

There was one cousin, with his obnoxious wife, and their likewise obnoxious teenagers who more or less stayed away from me.  No words ever in my direction, and the mom implored her daughter not to go near me.  They were super disapproving and super obvious about it.  Whatever.  To my own surprise, I'm so completely not phased.  I was never close to them anyway, and frankly, I had a hunch they'd be worse than this.  So in a weird way, they exceeded my expectations.

***

Then there's my immediate family (whom I've been staying with this week).  My parents still misgender me a lot.  They still call me by my old name a lot.  But everyone once in a while, they get it right.  It's somehow not upsetting when they screw it up though, because I know they're trying.  How do I know?  Because on Christmas morning, every box I got had "to Jocelyn" written on it.  They hung up a brand new stocking with "Jocelyn" on it (seriously, damn near had me in tears).  They mostly gave me a lot of clothes, and it was all in my size and for the most part, in my style.  My mom took me clothes shopping with her the day after (and even offered to buy new bras for me).    

Heck, at dinner on Christmas Eve, there was even a morbid topic about my parents' will that came up where they said they wanted to rework it because it was written before this all happened.  They said don't want me to be denied any inheritance because of some stupid loophole like, "I'm not Josh anymore."  I'm not 100% sure that matters (I wouldn't even have thought of that), but the fact that they considered it feels really above and beyond to me.

And all of this, to me, equals acceptance and understanding.  They have come to terms with this; they just have trouble keeping everything straight conversationally and end up slipping up.  And I think when they're doing everything else so right, and I can see they're trying so hard for me, I just don't even care that they're slipping up.  Obviously, I'm not delighted to be called "he".  But unlike how I might have been in the past, I'm more happy about when they do get it right, then I am upset when they get it wrong.  (Does that make sense?)  The occasional obvious mistake is, to me, just a small price for them actively viewing and treating me as their daughter in every other way.

***

I'm so ready to go home so I can see my wife and my bunnies again, and get back to drawing, and play the plethora of new games I have... but I'm still down here until Monday.  It hasn't been all sugar and rainbows, but I think this has been a much needed experience for me.  It's resulted in a lot of closure for me.  Last year, I came back home from Christmas with my family and fell into depression for months.  This year, I feel like a new person.  And you know what?  After the whole cancer situation, I am SO ready to feel like a new person.  

Happy Holidays again, everyone.  And thank you for reading my novella here. XD

Devious Journal Entry

Mon Apr 15, 2013, 9:14 PM




In light of the recent bombings at the Boston Marathon, I have decided I will be offering a charity item in my shop in order to contribute something to those who have been affected by this tragedy.

Starting tomorrow, I will have the item in my shop and will have it there for a month. The item will be a miniature Boston cream pie charm, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross. At the end of the month I will make a lump sum donation to them.

I really hope this is not coming across as tacky or as a gimmick on my part to increase page views/sales/what have you. This is a very sad and horrible event that has happened and it has affected so many people. I would like to do my part in trying to help.

I will have the items up tomorrow morning-ish and will post when I do.
