Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. futureI am proud to present you my first "official" Emoticon Contest.Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. future4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
At first I want to tell you something about the theme:
As you have read the theme is past vs. present vs. future, this means your entry has to include something from the past, present and future. The time isn't set, this means that the past could be just 1 day ago or 100 years ago it's the same with the future. For example: you could display how the emotes have lived in the past how they are living now and how they could live in the future.
Be creative and surprise me with your imagination
The Contest is divided into 2 Categories:
The first Category will be for deviants who would like to work alone. And the second category is for deviants who want to work with somebody (a collaboration category ;D) 2 deviants can work together.
But you could also enter in both categories!
Below you can find the rules of each category and what you have to keep in mind.
December EMTC! + 15 Entries! + CLOSED!Holidays creeped up on me and my little EMTC may have been neglected for a bit. I am happy with the turnout, though. Judging will commence shortly!December EMTC! + 15 Entries! + CLOSED!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Originally, I was going to theme this month "Snowmen" as my oldest, Dylan, has told me all he wants for Christmas is a snowman. However, I realized this might be a tad limiting. So, I broadened it a bit...and decided on snow! Whether it's snow angels, blizzards, a light dusting....really, there are quite a few ways you can go with this. And did I mention my old obsession, snowglobes? Let's help me feel a little more festive (61 F in December?? Really?) by freezing as many tiny balls as possible.
Only new submissions for this. The emote must be submitted after the theme has been announced.
You can enter as many times as you want.
Minecraft sold to Microsoft - Notch LeavingSo the news this morning was that Notch, creator of the wildly successful Minecraft, not only sold Mojang to Microsoft, but he’s also stepping down from Mojang. Microsoft acquired the company for 2.5 BILLION dollars. You can read his post and what it’ll mean to the future of Mojang here: https://mojang.com/2014/09/yes-were-being-bought-by-microsoft/Minecraft sold to Microsoft - Notch Leaving9 months ago in Personal More Like This
However, that’s only one part of the story. Notch stepping down from Mojang is a little more complicated. He mentioned that he’s realized that he’s becoming a symbol for people, not a person, and as a result he gets drawn into a lot of debate or blamed for things he never said or did. He cited this video as a good example of what his life has become recently:
I watched the This is Phil Fish video on YouTube and started to realize I didn’t have the connection to my fans I thought I had. I’ve become a symbol. I don’t want to be a symbol, responsible for something huge that I don

In celebration of the release of sta.sh writer comments, which allows you to use Community Emoticons in the Comments (Read more about it here: [link])
I decided to host a Contest just for Chat friendly Emotes.
The main goal of this Contest is to provide more chat friendly Emotes for the Community. The Judges can also participate in the contest, but they aren't eligible to win.
Chat Friendly means to me that it serves a purpose within a conversation other than to look good, the Emoticon has to show an action or an Emotion, the animation shouldn't be too long and the canvas not too big. Therefore there will be also a restricted canvas size for the Contest.
Only new submissions for the Contest.The Emoticon has to be Chat friendly, they have to show an Emotion or an Action, which can be used within conv

2 Years of Relativity!Okay, it's actually 4 years if you count how long we've been working on it. But then, again, who's counting?2 Years of Relativity!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Of course, what do we do to celebrate the anniversary of a literature series? We feature ART! Yes, while Relativity is a fiction serial, art is an integral part of the experience. I mean, who doesn't like to see pretty pictures. Thankfully, several artists were wonderful enough to work with us to get some very special pieces to celebrate. Some you might have seen already, others are brand-spanking new!
The official cover of the first anthology (Book 2 in the series). This book will be available on Amazon.com in the next day or two--if you'd like to purchase a copy to help support the series. Or if you can't afford it, or just don't want to shell out the dough, you can get a free copy on Blacktorrent.us!
The cover-art and layout was done by the amazing FranciscoETCHART. His art has been such a huge inspiration to us, and has inspired so many other a

What is an Advent Calendar? An advent calendar depicts the 24 days in December ending on Christmas Day.
Okay, so what's special about an Emoticonist Advent Calendar? It's special because the calendar's days are filled with things made by anyone who makes emotes, or emoticons!
Who can sign up for this awesome project? Anyone who can create an emote! Skill doesn't matter, but you must be willing to commit to the day you choose.
Will we be able to do animated entries? As it's my first year and I'm quite unfamiliar with flash, thi

3wyl: It is entirely my pleasure. I have to thank you for giving me the opportunity to be interviewed; I am very much honoured.
I joined deviantART in 2007 purely for curiosity's sake. I remember that I was an intense lurker before joining, but I took the leap and made an account...only to leave a few months after.
I won't go into why I left, but I joined again at the beginning of 2009 because I missed it here. I missed what it was like, but, mostly,

PE DDs: When It's Not Always PositiveWhen DDs Go AwryPE DDs: When It's Not Always Positive3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Daily Deviations, or “DDs,” are frequently held in very high esteem on deviantART. After all, what artist does not want his or her work displayed for more than 20 million viewers to see and admire? The benefits of receiving a DD feature include increased exposure for your work and a day in the spotlight for you as an artist. Many people therefore view DDs as badges of honor, awards that make them proud and validate the time they spend in our community.
Be careful what you wish for!
Don’t get us wrong-- DDs are wonderful for the purposes listed above. But, they can also bring a lot of drama upon the artist, especially if they are controversial.
Let’s talk about some of the sources of this drama.
Some people feel that people who post art-- and especially those whose art is worthy of a Daily Deviation-- should have thick enough skin to accept criticism as well as praise. They argue that criticism is part
