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
Love the Stache!Hi everyoneLove the Stache!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
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

Last Call! April's Manga/Anime Repeating ContestMonthly Repeating Manga & Anime contest!Last Call! April's Manga/Anime Repeating Contest3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello there again my blooming flowers!
A few days ago we announced the winners of March's Repeating Contest! Today we put a start to April's Contest!! Are you excited?? Keep reading to see what we will be doing this month!
A little F.A.Q before we get started :iconjumpingla-plz:
How does this work?
Every month I'll give you a theme and you'll have to create a Manga/Anime styled entry according to it
Is Fan Art or Fan Characters allowed?
I'm afraid not Only Original Characters and universes are allowed. Your Naruto based OC, for example, isn't elligible to enter or win.
Can we submit pre-existing works that fit the theme?
Nope. All entries must be made specifically for this contest, old artworks won't be accepted.
Alright! Now that we have the basics down, let's get into serious bussiness!
April's Theme: "April showers bring May flowers

The following article is intended to be a quick guide on the Digital Art categories to get you started, most of the descriptions included here came from past Project Educate articles (so thanks for all the current and past CVs for their indirect help :P) and will include links to more articles if you want a more deep insight of said category, as well as a list of CVs you can send your DD suggestions to.

Here is a brief history of April Fool's pranks deviantART has played on it's members. Please note that information is still missing (mostly older years) - this is because some April Fool's pranks were never recorded or are lost in the millions of journals on the site.
2001 - "jark is Arrested"
jark is arrested in Disneyland for cutting in line and refusing to move to the back.
2004 - "British Takeover"
April Fool's Day 2004 marked the day the British took over deviantART. New rules were enforced on that day, including spelling "color", "colour" and saying "Cheers guv'nor" instead of "Thank You".

I know that many deviants have had a rough past year. I know I have. For some, it was the economy, for some changes in their families and loved ones, and I know for some it has even been on deviantART. We have all had struggles, but this time of year, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, is as good a time as any to thank people for what we DO have.
In this world of little, we all have something we hold dear to our hearts. Now is the time to say thanks.
So, what I would like to invite everyone to do is in the next 48 hours (Today + Thanksgiving), fave this journal to show your support, then comment with 4 things you are thankful for:
1 thing on deviantART you are thankful for
1 thing with your family, loved ones, friends, etc. you are thankful for
1 thing in your life you are thankful for

Celebrating Deviousness - November 2015Celebrating Deviousness - November 20153 months ago in Personal More Like This
In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
My name Ry/Ry-Spirit. I was born in Hong Kong and moved to Australia when I was 8. It was tough moving to a whole new country in a new school not knowing anyone or a single word of English. It wasn't like I didn't want to make friends but I just didn't know how to start. But something helped with that.... art! It helped me break my shyness as well as giving me the confidence to keep pushing forward. I remember this one time, I had to leave in the middle of class to do something, the next day my friend who was in the class said the teacher (Mr Newton) told the whole class after I left, he said 'Ry, remember that name, he will be a famous artist one day.' That comment really stuck with me and motivated me to become
Spirit Day 2012"Ultimately, I want Spirit Day to make just one person feel little bit better about his or herself, to feel safe enough in their own skin and to be proud of who they are" - Brittany McMillanSpirit Day 20123 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In memory of the young LGBT people who lost their lives to suicide, Brittany encouraged her friends to wear purple on a day in October -- a day that came to be known as Spirit Day. Since then, GLAAD has helped turn Spirit Day into a global event that inspires millions of individuals, celebrities, TV personalities, media outlets, companies and schools to wear purple in a stand against bullying.
While Spirit Day does focus on the LGBT community, I believe that it's anti-bullying message is relevant to every community. It only get's better, if we take the pledge to make it so.
Practice compassion and understanding, and treat others how you would like to be treated and we can make a difference.
