Texture Your World ContestTell us the story of your world in textures!
We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?
We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.
There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.
These are textures created digitally by
Celebrating Diversity #13In this issue of Celebrating Diversity, I would like to remind you of an amazing feeling...when you see a piece of art created in a medium or genre that you have little or no experience of working in, and it feels like you're witnessing something magical, something beyond your comprehension.Celebrating Diversity #131 year ago in Art Features More Like This
It's wonderful to revel in the joy of How do they do that? and find inspiration in the creations of other artists. So I challenge you to take a step outside of the galleries that you regularly browse and immerse yourself in the experience of indulging in something new.
How do you celebrate diversity?
Do you regularly browse, comment on and collect art that's wildly different from what you create?
Do you watch artists who use mediums that you don't use in your own

Resources Gallery Makeover (REMINDER)So all those sub cats...Resources Gallery Makeover (REMINDER)9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Its no secret that the stock and resources gallery is HUGE. On a scale thats intimidating, complicated and a bit like a bottomless pit of sub, sub, sub, sub, sub cats.
Last year we were very lucky to have a bit of a makeover job in Resources/Fonts and Resources/Stock, however, we are looking with "new deviant's eyes" (Yes, we kidnapped new deviants and stole their eyeballs) to look at our gallery long and hard. HARD.
You can read more about whats going on with this huge project here - http://fav.me/d5xccty
What we'd love to get from you guys
Feedback and suggestions!
Do you know of sub cats that are completely obsolete that we could tidy up and get rid of?
Are there dark alleyways hidden in the maze of resources sub cats that need a light shining on them?
Can some categories be merged, or renamed to make them more logical/useful to todays deviant community?

PE: Quality vs Quantity when suggesting DDsWhile this subject is pretty straight forward sometimes it helps to give a little reminder to prevent people from getting caught up in the moment and not thinking things through entirely.PE: Quality vs Quantity when suggesting DDs9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The goal of this article is to remind people that less can often be more.
Quantity vs Quality
There have been times where we've seen that some artists believe sending multiple suggestions of a certain piece will get the piece a DD. I mean hey, if we send enough suggestions for it the CV must automatically love it too, right? Unfortunately, this simply isn't the case.
As CVs we will select a DD based on the content and not by how many people seem to believe it should be a DD. If we are to recieve many suggestions on a piece we might question if there is something there that we are not seeing in the piece which makes it DD worthy, however intentionally spamming us just creates more work for us which is completely unne

Thank you for allowing me to interview you, let's start off by having you introduce yourself.
Hi! My name is Janine, I'm 22 years old, living in Ontario, Canada.
How many years ago did you begin sculpting and what got you interested in this medium?
I started sculpting around the end of 2007. I had been browsing deviantart looking at breyer customs and came across original sculptures others had made. I had never heard of polymer clay and had assumed you needed a huge kiln to sculpt. I decided to try it out and have been hooked ever since!

She has been on deviantART for eight years in which she rose to prominance among the equine art community, her attention for detail, varied mediums, and intimate style catching attention with every piece she posted.

Stamps are a great way to show your support for a project, a person or a group of people, spread awareness for a cause or promote a contest. It is also valid to do them just for fun, with just a funny image and/or message.
Since their introduction to the deviantArt galleries, millions of stamps have been created with a great variety of messages, both silly and serious, and you can see them all over the place, from journals to profile widgets.
The Community Relations department exists to encourage, facilitate and develop the relationship with our deviantART community. Our goal is to nurture our community by encouraging, stimulating artists to create, collaborate, and participate in a friendly, safe, and supportive artistic environment.
