Goodbye 2012 - Big FeatureOne more year is almost over....Goodbye 2012 - Big Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
For me it was a pretty normal year, neither really good nor really bad. But in regard to Photography it was a great year for me.
I got my first DSLR Camera and i even earned some money with my photos. I love taking photos and i hope that this will stay the same next year.
Within this year i got over 1800 watchers and that really means a lot to me. Thank you so much ! ♥
For now i have some amazing photos from 2012 for you, i am sorry that the Feature got so long, but there where so many amazing photos that i just couldn't stop.
I hope that all of you will have an amazing year 2013 !
Goodbye 2012 and Welcome 2013

In my opinion, one of the greatest advantages to the New Submission Process, are the thumbnail examples and descriptions that appear when you're selecting a category. It's no secret that we have misplaced deviations throughout the galleries and it's probably the most complained about topic I deal with on a daily basis. My team and I have been working hard to improve the descriptions and thumbnail examples for all of the galleries, and I'm happy

Contest: Crossovers! As kids, we often mashed our toys together, regardless of Copyright. Superman would take command of G.I. Joe to defeat the combined forces of Doctor Doom and the Decepticons, while Barbie took a break from her idealistic lifestyle to become a Pokemon master. And the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got recruited into Starfleet and taught Spock the wonders of pizza. (And from the furor arose Mister Rogers in a blood-stained sweater.)Contest: Crossovers!3 years ago in Official DeviantArt Contests More Like This
And thus, the Crossover was born. It's something we never really outgrew, either. To this day, seeing our favorite characters from different stories meet and compete is a guilty pleasure that we all like to indulge in. So now's your chance to indulge yourselves for prizes!
Photography Troubleshooting: PetsPhotographing pets whether for yourself or as part of a job, is becoming increasingly popular and the demand for tips and tutorials is ever on the increase.

"My camera has a pets & kids setting but they still come out blurry.
I've tried every setting, so far I've had better results with the "EASY"
setting, but they still come out only decent."
Talty is using a high end Canon Powershot which is fantastic for things like still life photography, landscapes and working up close with static options and scenery. But when it comes to photographing animals and in particular as Talty is attempting - kittens, it doesn't compensate for the difficulties such a subject poses. For example kittens are incredibly wriggly, and as Talty has found, getting them to stay still in any one place is a nightmare! So naturally you need a camera that can al

Everyday we're CV'ingAs a Community Volunteer - I do as much or as little within the community that I feel comfortable doing. We're not pressured to do this and that, we don't even have to give a Daily Deviation every day, we choose how we promote our selected galleries/chats and forums and we're not fixed to any specific rule on how much or how little we do. But I do believe that it's important to share with you just what the community volunteers do and why we do it. More importantly it's so easy to get lost on this site full of many people - and miss out on the awesome that's going on.

However, now, it’s spring. And the sun is shining.

How did the introduction of Jazz, Crazes and popular media influence the American populace during the early 1920s?
Brilliant question Silverpoint345, well well well firstly the American public heard the music and was like "HELL NAH THIS AINT MUSIC" cos in the 1920s everyone was kinda boring and didn't do much except for talkin about the weather, then after a while they became more open minded and were like "HELL YEAH THIS IS MY KINDA SH*T" and the

Well, after skimming like 30 papers for a final essay
I wanna skim art instead * u* ))
SO here's another feature journal of awesome artists, whose work will hopefully inspire you too! <3
Ahh, this artist creates such dreamy scenes! The huge panoramic shots really pull you in!
I feel like I'm looking through a window into another beautiful world!
I feel really nostalgic from evelmiina's work, I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the slightly muted colour schemes, or the lovelyyy linework, or the shading! In all, I feel like I'm reading a Golden book (or maybe it was another name) but those children's storybooks with the gold binding!!
Every piece is a joy to look at! <3 Plus she draws some fanart of series that I really like, ahahahah! <3

American Comics, Manga...AND WAR!This is a major turning point in the history of comics, World War II. This period of time not only changed comics as we knew them, but also other areas in graphics such as propaganda posters. Now mid to late 1930's we've seen the birth of the modern comic book. Due to the war as well we're also now seeing the birth of war comics. An obvious example of this as I'm sure many of you have already guessed is Captain America Comics in 1941 (before American involvement in the war). Captain America was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby who worked for Timely Comics, which of course has now become Marvel Comics. He gained amazing popularity and is often fighting the Axis powers in World War II.American Comics, Manga...AND WAR!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
