More ways to promote your work on dA......that you might not have thought of!More ways to promote your work on dA...3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Part of the fun of creating art is sharing it with other artists and art appreciators. Whether you're seeking feedback, promoting your creations for sale (as dA prints or maybe directing people to cool stuff in your etsy shop), offering stock and resources for others to use or simply aiming to get your work 'out there' for the deviant world to enjoy, there are lots of ways to do that through deviantART.
Everyone knows about the Thumbshare Forum, Groups and Featured Deviation modules on your profile page, but there are other ways to promote your art that you may not have considered before. Here are just a few suggestions...
Thumbs in Artist's Comments
You can put thumbnails in the Artist's Comments on your deviations. This is a great way to show off connected images (like if you submit a bunch of photos from the same shoot to dA) or a collection of deviations on a theme. You might want to include mor

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May

Nyiana's 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Hey everyone!Nyiana's 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
With Christmas coming up pretty fast, I decided to do a giveaway for Christmas, actually 12 days worth. Pretty sweet right? The twelve days leading up to and on Christmas itself, I will be giving away different gifts to people who enter, from premium memberships, to shirts, to collectibles.
Now, this project doesn't start until December 14th, but there's a reason why I'm announcing it now. I added up the cost of the prizes, and its not exactly cheap, over 14,000 points. So, I'm making this journal today to see if anyone would be willing to help donate towards this cause. Of course, I should have done all of this earlier, but the idea didn't strike me until yesterday.
On the front of my page, I have a donation pool set up with the amount of points that I need to reach my goal. If I don't make the goal before then, that's fine. I'll cough up my own money, but its open to anyone who wants to donate and take part.

Winter Alliance Contest! Greetings, fair Allies! It is my pleasure to announce the Winter Alliance Contest!Winter Alliance Contest!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I thought I would try to do something about that. And so the Alliance was born!
Because I, your founder, have a deep and abiding love for the seasons, this group will now host seasonal contests, and as the Autumn Contest is now over, it is time for Winter to reig

Biggest Jack Frost Moment in History.So, I decided to go see that "Rise of The Guardians" movie thinking it might be pretty good. I went to see the movie by myself, so when I walked into the theater there is nothing but little kids and their parents as far as the eye can see. I suddenly felt kind of silly for wanting to come see the movie now. As I was walking up the stairs to the top to get a seat I noticed most of the little kids started to stare at me. Ignoring the weird looks of these strange children, I found a empty seat next to an old couple that had brought their granddaughter to see the movie. Looking out over the theater again to see if there was another empty spot, I failed at finding one. I settled in the seat next to the little girl and I had a sick feeling she was going to be one of those kids that talks through the whole movie. I looked down at my pocket and pulled out my pocket watch (yeah, I know I'm a little too old fashion sometimes, call me crazy) and realized I had a good 10 minutes before the movie sBiggest Jack Frost Moment in History.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Forgive me for the inactivity...I have been consumed by my work, so I am very busy.Forgive me for the inactivity...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
However, I wanted to ask all of my lovely watchers a question.
Would you prefer that I reply to more comments and less art, or a steady stream of slenders art, and less replying.
Maintaining comments and art are both very time consuming, and hard to keep up with given my work.
I am currently working on a new piece that I hope you all will enjoy.
Again, I apologize for the inactivity.

Fan Fiction Contest - Freaky Friday!What if one day you woke up to find out you were in the body of your favourite character and they were in your body? What crazy things would happen to you both?Fan Fiction Contest - Freaky Friday!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is what this contest is about: Fan Fic writers are invited to tell us what swapping bodies with a character from any fandom of their choice would be like.
Write a short Fan Fiction about your body swap experience with a character in a fandom of your choice.
You must put YOURSELF in their body, and the fandom character in your body. We want to see both characters facing this freaky incident.
You now posses their body and all their powers, but there are limitations. Please refrain from writing anything of sexual nature.
The character now posses your body and has to face reality! So they no longer have their special powers and no one but themselves know about the swap. For example: They would break their hand trying to get coins to pop out of bricks! Or even a co

Quỳnh Anh (M è o M ỡ)'s account has since been "deactivated". I'm not familiar with Flickr's terminology so I don't know if this means Flickr banned her or if she chose to deactivate her account herself. But I hope through it all Quỳnh Anh (M è o M ỡ) has learned her lesson: don't steal art!

Why you feature stolen work?!?!Lately there seem to have been a few myths flying around in particular with regards to how we as Community Volunteers, give Daily Deviations. Many people seem to think that we sit at our desks in dark little rooms and let out evil laughter whilst we purposefully feature stolen work. The dark rooms and laughter - well I can't say yes or no on that one! But I can promise you it's not our intent to give exposure to people who have stolen work. I recently featured a piece of work that turned out to be stolen. However I went into extensive conversations with the artist before I featured it, and with added metadata and dates, it's difficult to know where to draw the line. I've given people the benefit of the doubt before - and it's worked out nicely as their work has been legitimate. Below are some comments I have seen being thrown around the past few days - and hopefully an attempt to bust the myth.Why you feature stolen work?!?!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

This is what I don't like seeingI was browsing around deviantART today when I found a piece of art that I liked so naturally, I faved it.This is what I don't like seeing1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes, when I fav something, the artist will come to my page and leave a comment telling me thanks. Sometimes they won't. Either one doesn't bother me because I'm not looking for anything in return.
But to my surprise, when I faved that piece of art today, this was the comment left on my page a few moments later:
Instead of saying thank you, or showing some sort of gratitude, they had simply instructed me to comment when I fav.
I thought this was incredibly rude and obnoxious.
First of all, no one owes you anything on this site. Every time someone comments, favs, features, etc. anything you post, remember that they didn't have to do that, so be humble and be thankful.
And sure, it would be nice to upload something and get thousands of comments and thousands of favs, but I won't get mad when that doesn't happen. I'll just be happy with what I get because again, no
30 Ways To Pimp Out Your Account - 3.2EDIT TIME! Please note that this is NOT some copy/paste shit that was sent to me which I then recopied into my journal. It is also NOT yours, and I'm getting real tired of people not only copying the entire thing word for word into their journal but then giving me NO credit for it (or taking credit for it themselves). If you want to link to it, fine, that's awesome. If you want to put it in your journal as well, that's also cool with me so long as you ASK first and give a link back to me as well.30 Ways To Pimp Out Your Account - 3.29 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, I think it was made quite clear that this was primarily made in jest, but that seems to be flying over some peoples' heads, so I'm going to state this now: the following list was made to get laughs. LAUGHS. HAHA. See? That's a laugh. It's a reaction to something a person finds humorous. It is not meant to be taken seriously. Most people get that; this journal is like ten months old and I still get regular comments on it telling me how much they like it. However, to the few of you out
Mental self-harmSelf-harm isn't always about harming yourself physically.Mental self-harm2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Very often it's also about mental harm, in some cases all about mental harm.
I for one have never ever cut myself, even though I've played with the thought.
But for many years I've harmed myself with my own mind.
Digging deep mental holes in which I tried to bury myself when I couldn't handle all the chaos going on.
A lot of times I've harmed myself by forcing myself to not make myself heard when what I really needed was someone to speak to.
Ignored friends when they tried to reach out and help me. And then coming back and begged for help just to repeat the same damn mistake over and over again.
I don't do shit like that very often anymore. But sometimes I just can't do any better than close every possible way into my heart and mind, and just shut everyone out. Even close friends that I care about. They who care about me.
In the long run, and most of the time in the short run too, it's nothing else but self destructive. Obviousl
