TeamWork Project starting today!We're very proud to announce our new project called TeamWork!
The aim is to team up two artists to achieve a close and individual learning-experience.
One of the two will be the teacher, whereas the other will be the student. (But our teachers will learn through this project just as much, I'm sure )
Teachers will present assignments to their students and provide them with tools, techniques and lessons to achieve the goal they both decided on.
In the end we'll present all the finished assignments in a big chat event and on our group page!
There also might be prizes for Best TeamWork, Best Final Artwork and Strongest Improvement!
The project consists of three major parts:
The sign-up phase: Sun Mar 10 - Sun Mar 17
The TeamWork phase (3 weeks) Mon Mar 18 - Sun Apr 7
Regular chats with all teams to see how the project is going for you, every weekend in
Not Everyone Dies from a Drunk DriverEDIT: You guys are awesome. I didn't expect this to go viral on dA. I thank my dear friend =UniBat and `Hellobaby for seeding this. Anyone else who promoted this story, I thank you too.Not Everyone Dies from a Drunk Driver9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Today, I write this journal on behalf of my dear boyfriend *Bulano who now suffers Traumatic Brain Injury as a result of being hit by a drunk driver.
He had left work around 3am'ish from a night shift. He then ended up being struck by a car and *Bulano's car ended up rolling vertically 4 times. The driver's car ended up going into flames. A passing Chevy stopped and called the police and stayed at the scene. To my surprise, *Bulano was able to get out of his car (his side airbags cushioned the wreck) and seemed to be fine. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene and DUI (Driving Under Influence of Alcohol). *Bulano was checked over and had injured rotation cuffs and a stiff neck. He claimed to be fine with minor injuries. Which was to me, a mir

Movember is quickly coming to a close and the shave-off events are eagerly awaited by our Mo'Bros who have suffered through all sorts of mo-mishaps over the last 28 days. For those of you that have participated, I thank you and ask you to make the last two days really count and reach out to your friends and families for those last minute donations.
For the rest of you, I am making this final push on behalf of all of the deviantART Sta.sh teams to request that you reach into your pockets and make a donation, regardless of how big or small, to the Movember effort. I realize how hard this may be considering you're likely broke after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but should you find a dollar or two - we would greatly appreciate your donation
The amount isn’t important, every little bit helps Movember continue its funding of world-class programs. If you want to know more about what you’ll be helping to fund, you can visit

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

Gallery Makeover ProjectHello everyoneGallery Makeover Project10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Recently my team and I worked tirelessly on a project to help improve the gallery descriptions and thumbnail examples. While that project was indeed tedious with almost 4,000 categories in our system, it was also educational. What I learned from sorting through thousands and thousands of categories was that we have a lot of redundancy and a lot of categories that seem to have been created on a whim that are now simply homes for junk.
Over the years, the desire to appease niche communities and people who just wanted a specific area has led to some categories that go up to 4 levels deep, and it's really no wonder it's so confusing for people to figure out where to submit their artwork.
The conclusion I've come to is simplicity. While I'm not about to rip apart everything and make 6 stand alone categories, I do believe that there is a lot we can do to simplify the category tree. That includes some of the following:
1. Merging categories that ma

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.

About #seniormentorsSome time back now, I was trusted by `lazybutt to step up as the founder of %seniormentors; a request I accepted as an honor. This group pre-dates the group platform of deviantART--I wanted to be a part of #seniormentors when it was `seniormentors. The purpose behind this group has always been focused on mentoring the community in creating quality work--by having all the tools they need to achieve their best potential. As the current founder, I would like %seniormentors to be the hub for seniors of the community to portray the best of dA and feature tutorials that help learning artists improve.About #seniormentors11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Through my years on deviantART, I have noticed how vital ticked off deviants can be if their "powers" (increased visibility in the community) are focused on positive growth. I've asked seniors why they think they're a senior and many have no clue why, some have an idea, but all have made an impact in the community. I'd like to give seniors more purpose through this

Arts and Commentary - No. 1I do this periodically where I feature some Relativity art with commentary. I am trying to make any type of Relativity features more formal, so I'm going to start numbering them and linking them in the group, making it easier for people to find them. These will still be regular journals, though. I will not be publishing these as formal articles like the "Artists of Relativity" series, etc. To see all of the most recent art from the series, check out this folder.Arts and Commentary - No. 18 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have long adored the style of *oasiswinds and when she opened for low-price commissions a couple months ago, I had to snatch up a few of the hero gang. I love the style of this. I had no idea she would do them in monochrome, but was excited to see Dark Flame done in gold. Her impish look totally fits her.
A simple but fun picture of one of the series' favorite couples. I always get a bit of a kick
Artists of Relativity - Vol 4A monthly series which will feature artists and artwork from the Relativity serial, which is published over on my `mirz-alt account and can be found at %RelativityComic. As I frequently showcase work from the series, I also wanted to promote the individual artists and feature some of their other work. This series will spotlight deviants who have created art for us through commissions, gift-art, contest-entries, requests or other means.Artists of Relativity - Vol 47 months ago in Art Features More Like This

The Relativity Profile Project
Back in June of 2012, `Ravenswd and I planned a special project for our fiction series, Relativity. Looking at our group gallery, we noticed that we did not have a lot of good, full-figured pictures of our characters. This made creating profile sheets and other promotional items difficult. So we set up a little fund in order to purchase a few commissions of the main heroes. We were on a tight budget and looked for artists that would work wit
Arts and Commentary - Vol. 2I do this periodically where I feature some Relativity art with commentary. Not wanting to spam everyone, I had hoped to post these every 6-8 weeks.

Next issue, which I plan to post on a better schedule, will feature the regular ten again.Arts and Commentary - Vol. 25 months ago in Personal More Like This
I was fortunate to win a lottery for a free drawing from the insanely talented *SirTiefling. Jim said it was a shame I didn't ask for a pic of my uber-sexy bounty hunter, Delilah Quord, and I agree, the artist would have rocked her. But I am SOOO glad I got a picture of Dark Flame. Even though he gave her costume a bit of a re-design, I adore this version of the character. I honestly can't nail it down to one thing--everything is just right about this. She's simply perfect, and it's my favorite picture of this character, ever.
