I've decided to do an FAQ since I've received similar questions lately. So ask away!
I've thought of doing it over tumblr as well, since I get asked a lot there.
Commissions are closed for now.

New Username SymbolsAs part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.New Username Symbols2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

The founder of this group left a very long time ago, but unfortunately did not delete their account. Had they deleted it, DA would be able to assign a new founders.
I am the only costly active staff member, but I read and reply to all comments, make new folders when necessary and help when questions are asked.
I would just like to remind you that you are not forgotten, this group is not abandoned and I do very much care about all of you.

Art, Math, and Computers: Primary ColorsA series of occasional articles on the intersection of art, math, and computersArt, Math, and Computers: Primary Colors2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Everything you know is wrong.
That's the title of an old Firesign Theater album, and I think of it often as I watch my kids progress through high school. Maybe it should read, "Many of the things you are taught have been dumbed down because teachers didn't think you could handle them." Whether it's glossing over quantum physics when teaching the nature of the atom, or stating that Socrates killed himself, because getting into the whole trial thing is too complicated, examples abound.
Anyway...most people, when asked to name the primary colors, would respond "red, yellow, and blue", and, when asked to define what a primary color is, would respond with something like, "they are the colors which can be used to make all other colors". That's what many of us were taught in school at a young age, but it's only partially true. People involved in printing know that the truest pri

I am haunted in this holiday season by the opening lines of Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, his novel about a society 250 years ago coming apart in its seemingly irreconcilable divisions. Could it be these lines define where we have come to find ourselves today?
“It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times,
in the age of wisdom,
it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief,
it was the epoch of incredulity,

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

Celebrate deviantART's 13th Birthday!Celebrate deviantART's 13th Birthday!2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.
Just wondering, what do you consider me?I have noticed that about 15-20 of my watchers/people i watch have regular and in-depth conversations with me. So I am just wondering, what do you guys consider me? A friend? An acquaintance? That one guy? an inspiration? A rival? Or is it something else entirely all together? Either way, just leave a comment below of what you consider me, and I will answer it within 20 minutes hopefully.

Winter, Hope and PanamaToday we took the three girls out of their home and temporarily moved them to the Stranding Deck where we have 2 pools that will be used for animals that we save, but must be quarantined. I think that they like the new surroundings. Hope enjoyed swimming from one pool to the other, visiting Winter in the larger tank and then over to Panama in the smaller. The pools are connected but can be made into two separate tanks when the gates are closed. Also, today the director and a couple of producers of Dolphin Tale 2 visited. Yup, it was a pretty hectic day, but we are getting very used to chaos!!Winter, Hope and Panama2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Mary-Sue Witch hunt.Basically what this is is finding Mary-Sue OCs, and bashing the hell out of them until the person takes them down forever, or gets sick of it and leaves Deviantart.The Mary-Sue Witch hunt.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I do not support this.
I believe that Mary-Sues can CHANGE, I was once a Mary-Sue maker! I made a character nammed "Flytile" and she was married to a Darkrai, but his evil shiny twin brother, Dark, wanted to marry her! Everyone wanted to marry her!
Gosh, I look back at that, and I don't see it as an abomination.
I see it as a dramatic transformation.
Even though I had a Mary-Sue character, doesn't mean she was. Most of the time, she would end up in a situation where she couldn't get out of, and she'd say "I'm screwed!" She made mistakes, she wasn't PERFECT.
Now my close friend's character was a BIT more Suiesh...But once I told her that, she made an IMMEDIATE change to her character Development.
When I mean immediate, I mean we shot the shit for a good 30 minutes after I said that, balancing out her Mother 3 fa

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Hey guys....Please don't save my images you find on here to your computer, crop out my signature/watermark, and then re-post it to another website.Hey guys....7 months ago in Personal More Like This
That is one of the most disrespectful things you could possibly do to an artist. I found one such image like that and I'm trying to get in contact with the original poster to see if they are the one who thinks that image is theirs.
I try not to put my watermarks in the middle of the image, because I think that may take away from the image if all you see is my name on its face. So I try and put them in the corners.
It's actions like this that make me not want to post images anymore because they're just going to be taken and misrepresented.
On a brighter note, I did add a few prints to my Etsy shop. Dee Otter Shop . And if you see something that isn't listed that you would like to have as a print, send me a note and I can add it as soon as I get a break from school wor
Submission DaysI think I have to rethink which days I submit art. Usually on the weekends my mom has a monopoly on the one computer that my camera's memory chip can go in, so it's difficult to get the chance to upload things. So, I'm going to switch the days slightly to Monday and Thursday, because I am home long before she is and can upload things then.Submission Days9 months ago in Personal More Like This

The reason being: I have two HUGE projects planned for myself, a painting and a clay piece.
The painting is going to be the first project I start on, I really want to make this painting amazing, like the best one I've ever done kind of thing(cause let's face it, I could use a lot more practice painting). I would appreciate any tips any painters out there could give me, I use acrylic and metallic paints and will be working on a 8 inch by 10 inch canvas. It will feature a silver dragon, not in a close up, so if anyone has any tips on painting scales when the perspective is from a distance that would be GREATLY appreciated.
The clay might be started a bit later(or a lot later) because the paint I plan on using after it's baked is costly and I have to obtain it g
