Site Update: December 1, 2011About a month ago we announced Sta.sh and Sta.sh Writer -- not as a hot topic, but we soft-launched to the hq membership and to the more savvy deviants who follow along when we release things.Site Update: December 1, 20114 years ago in Personal More Like This
Development of both products has never stopped and will continue in an ongoing manner moving forward.
Below, I've outlined a change log that tracks recent Sta.sh progress and also identified Known Issues that we're aware of and actively working on.
You now have the option to include/exclude your journal from the Journal Portal, and from your Journal Tab's new "Featured" section.
The Journal Portal in the footer of deviantART now pulls from the Journals category but excludes all "Personal" posts. This means, you must categorize your Journal on submission for it to even qualify to appear in the footer of dA. This has substantially increased the quality of posts that appear there.

FAQHow did you get started?FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've always sculpted as a hobby and am completely self taught. In April of 2010 I decided I wanted to finally try my hand at selling my work. I started posting things on etsy and DA and veeery slowly people started noticing. My first couple of years relied heavily on commission work.
How are you so popular? I just started making sculptures too but nobody notices or buys them?
It took well over two years before I was actually getting fulltime work with decent pay. It took a TON of hard work. I sold my work for far less than I should have, because I needed customers. I also did a few shows, to get some exposure by handing out business cards. I made things as often as I could, posted often, and made sure it was very clear I was open for commissions. I posted links on everything. You have to make it easy for people to find the info they need! I posted mainly on etsy and DA, then made a fanpage on facebook very late in the game. Probably sh

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

Work as a freelance character designer for Disney's Phineas and Ferb.
So yeah, commissions will be a little bit delayed again, sorry guys! But I will try to get some done on the train, promise! A big thank you goes to all of my friends who believed I could get something this big, and for all of my watchers who supported me. God blessed me with something big this year, even if it is a one time deal. It's only one episode, but I still get a shot at working in the industry on one of my favorite shows.
I can't share any more information about the opportunity But yeah, if I'm not active here over the break, starting tomorrow, it's not only because I went to L.A. for a week and a half, but because my mom and bro are coming over for Christmas and I will be doing some official work.
Thanks for the support, especially to my closest buddies, online and in real life.

Hard core, manToday at work, an older gentleman came in and asked how much it would cost to make copies of nine pages from a law book. I told him that at fifteen cents per page, his order would cost $1.35. He put one elbow on the counter, waggled his eyebrows, and said, “I bet you could use that for your party money, huh?”Hard core, man2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had to refrain from cackling because a) $1.35 won’t even buy a pack of those noisemakers you use to annoy your parents on New Year’s Eve and b) I am the absolute farthest thing from a party girl ever. My idea of a party involves Disney karaoke, sliding on the tile in my socks, and rolling around on the floor until my gas is gone. I have had, in total, approximately four to five whole glasses of wine in my entire life. I do not twerk, grind, bump, or air hump. I do not shake my thing up in the club with my homies. I do not participate in keggers. The shortest skirt I own comes to the middle of my knees. I would rather wear a bustle than

Fabric Stores and AndrocentrismA message from an artist and someone who works at a fabric store: Stop gendering your babies with colour!Fabric Stores and Androcentrism3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every day I have parents and grandparents-to-be come in and have fabric cut to make quilts, blankets, baby clothes, diapers, curtains, etc for their soon to be newborn. And yet, I'm always asked the same questions over and over:
"What do you have that's for girls?"
"Where is the boys section?"
"We won't know the gender, so we need to keep it neutral until it's born"
And worst of all: "Does this fabric look too girly to you?"
I usually give some sort of half-hearted, "Well, it's your choice, I'm sure they'll love it!" response, but my secret answer is: QUIT IT. No, that fabric is not "too girly". Why would an infant boy care if his pillow has pink flowers on it? Why would a girl care if it has footballs or zoo animals on it? Why are pink and blue so wholeheartedly reserved for girls and for boys that the thought of giving that colour to the other gender is laughable, or worse
Devious Journal EntryFalling Stars will shine so brightDevious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When the world is still at night
Moon will fade and Sun will die
When we come when dreams are high
Into Darkness all will fall
From planets great to seeds so small
Nightingale will cease its song
When evil wins it will be strong
But where there's night there is day
Where there's a will there's a way
Where darkness is there's always light
Given the chance it will shine bright
Hope may be so frail and shy
But as long as there's good it will never die,
So follow your dreams and look to the sky
For that is where I shall be when dreams are high
Yes, follow your dreams and look to the sky
For that is where I shall be when dreams are high

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.

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”

no talentno talent2 years ago in Personal More Like This
this is my final say in the argument against natural born talent vs skill. we all start out by drawing scribbles that slightly resemble things. i was about 3 yrs old here., and had probably already been drawing for some time since i was brought up in a family of artists. drawing only gives back with the time we give to it, and it takes a lot of patience, more needed in the beginning, and a lot of determination to keep at it even though we are continually frustrated.
hope this inspires some of you to keep going, or some of you to start, it will be even better if more of you, my dA friends, stop making excuses saying you werent born with the ability to make your dreams come true. the only thing holding you back is yourself. drawing is but a skill which we learn through lots of practice, determination, observation and patience. if you also have the undenied passion for it, you may see yourself getting further than others.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art
