You Watchin'? Check in - Watcher Thank Yous+PointsHello Deviants!
So it's 2013, and so far, I have not posted anything for the new year. Eh... perhaps you're happy about that, or perhaps, you're feeling that I wasn't festive enough... So let's be festive. Deviant style.
I would like to thank a few of my watchers for watching me and making 2013 a year to remember. So I will randomly be giving out:
5 Selection features (I will choose a selection from your gallery to feature)
All you have to do:
Fave this journal
Comment with your favorite PLZ account, emote, or write something fun
This also doubles as my watcher-check in. I feel like this is more fun than just a boring poll [Shrug]
Happy new year deviants!

Hello, dear deviants!
Do you want more constructive feedback? You can get it for free.
In order to participate you only have to:
fav this journal
comment on it.
I will make sure I visit your page and comment on one of your deviations, giving it a constructive comment/critique.
one lucky deviant who participates in this project will get 100 points
Why am I doing this?
I'm trying to show to deviants a real value of good feedback. It's something we should all learn to appreciate, when the comments aren't just pure words like awesome, wow, good, cool...
Deviantart is a big community with many exposed/underexposed artists but all of us are the same when it comes to getting feedback. We all get good and bad.
Photomanipulation vs. Digital Mixed MediaWhat is this series?Photomanipulation vs. Digital Mixed Media1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
The "Fix that Miscat" series has been designed to help educate deviantART members about the different galleries to which they can submit their art. Tired of submitting to a particular gallery and having your art moved to a different one? We will help minimize this occurrence by examining pairs of categories that frequently get confused and doing our best to clarify them for you.
What is a Photomanipulation?
What it is:
On deviantART, we define photomanipulation as "two or more PHOTOGRAPHIC elements that have been combined to form something NEW."
This means that:
At least 2 elements must be from photographs.
The result must be something new and different, distinguishable from the original.
What it is not:
It does not involve 3D images, even if there are also photos involved.

This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many other

How to: Make thumbs big in features?I get this asked a lot!How to: Make thumbs big in features?1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Back when they introduced sta.sh, I didn't really use it. Because it seemed hard to get used to. I always wrote my articles in the old way.
Then I toyed with it a little and noticed that is is something really awesome!
Not to mention that the only way to make articles and journals is through Sta.sh Writer.
So I assume not so many if you know that there is a way to make thumbs big!
That is actually pretty easy. All you have to do is add big in front of a thumb code!

This is the "regular" size

Art-for-Artists Project Stopped by dA TermsHello Deviants,Art-for-Artists Project Stopped by dA Terms1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A few people may have already noticed that yesterday my commission widgets were removed by the dA Staff. This was due to the fact that this project actually violated some terms and conditions. This was unknown to me as well as a few others that I had checked with. I was sent a note to clarify what went on, and asked for permission to share it with you today to clarify any issues.
I'm noting you today regarding your use of the Commissions widget.
While we understand and appreciate your desire to help your fellow artists with a charitable project of this type, unfortunately taking donations via the Commissions system is not a permissible usage of the widget. While your intentions were valid, unfortunately allowing such usage would open us up to many other areas of abuse by those with less noble intentions.
As a result of this, the commission purchases have been refunded to the original buyers and the funds removed fro

A (modern) history of dA emoticonsIntroA (modern) history of dA emoticons10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
As you wander around deviantART pages, there is noticeably one art medium that invades almost every element of the site. Whether it is the deviantART galleries, journals, news section, comments, forums, chatrooms, avatars or even dA profiles, it is hard to find a spot that hasn't been infiltrated by a familiar set of small, coloured, pixel circles. The art form I am talking about is of course the emoticon and throughout the past 10 or so years they have been happily adopted by deviantART and its community.
Although emoticons can often be spotted on a wide range of other instant messengers (IMs) and social media sites, deviantART has come to house a unique branch of these miniature art pieces. Whilst the majority of these alternative sites opt for simple, predominately yellow emotes with a range of basic expressions, the art community here at dA have stretched the art form far beyond its natural boundaries and developed entirely new styles of emoticons
