Complaint Challenge Contest!Complaint Challenge Contest!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We got our complaints out in December 2012. Now, 2013 is about doing something productive with them. I am not going to sit and grumble about my pet peeves. Neither should you!
Anyone who knows me should have been suspicious from the start of Phase 1 because complaining is one of my own complaints. (And you saw this trick last year!) That's right. I complain about people complaining. Silly, yes? Well I decided to do something about it with this challenge.
I hope everyone enjoyed sharing their gripes in Phase 1 because it is time for Phase 2! And Phase 2 is open to everyone, even if you didn't participate in Phase 1, or decided to change what complaint you'd like to address!
Complaint Challenge – Phase 2
The challenge in a nutshell: Pick one of your dA complaints and do something proactive about it. Work toward a solution or improvement in a positive way.
Now a few of you are probably thinking things like, "I

During the month of November each year, Movember asks men across the world to grow a moustache (or Mo') with the aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Mo Bros are helping to change the face of men’s health by effectively becoming walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by promoting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Together, we are truly changing the face of men’s health.

In case you didn't know, neurotype has stepped down from being a Literature Community Volunteer. And she was so amazing at it that I, the Pie Master that I am, have a super secret mission for you all AND I'm going to give you a week to do it in.
Gotta move fast, she's getting close!
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to pummel neurotype will all sorts of cake. You can post a thumbcode on her profile, create a Muro drawing for her, write an exquisite piece of poetry or prose, or anything else that your little hearts desire. As long as it involves cake. And this is a one time deal with the cake. Got it?

Typo Feature: AmbigramsWelcome to today's Typo Feature!Typo Feature: Ambigrams2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In this ongoing series each article will focus on a specific theme and showcase deviations that manage to convey the theme in a special and great manner.
This feature's theme will be ambigrams.
Ambigrams are a subform of Caligraphy, usually keeping up the style of being drawn by brush or pen, but often with stricter, more geometric forms.
The most famous kind of Ambigrams are those, in which when rotated 180° you will see the same image. Another popular form are Mirror-Image Ambigrams, which result in the same artwork when flipped horizontally or vertically.
Some artists manage to place two words in one Ambigram. By rotating or flipping the artwork, a new word can be read.
There are many forms of ambigrams, some easier to create than others. Words can be natural rotational ("suns" or "pod") or mirror-image ("bud") ambigrams.
Ambigrams are popular elements in logo designs, as they give a high level of back detection from the

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

Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig
Photomanipulation Tournament 2014Something awesome this way comes!!!!Photomanipulation Tournament 20141 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We are excited to introduce our newest photomanipulation challenge to the community. This is a series of battles to determine who can out-manipulate the other teams. This is a super long journal, but please take a minute at least to skim it and find out what this exciting challenge is all about. If you want to register, there are instructions at the bottom.
We are seeking prizes! If you are able to help, please leave a comment on this journal or contact Aeirmid.
What is a manip-off?
The manip-off is a series of "battles" in which rival teams/individuals challenge one another to reach beyond their photomanipulation skills and create something awesome. It's a battle to the death, and only one person or team will emerge victorious. We are looking for photomanip "champions," so there are three "rounds" of manipulations plus a championship round to choose a winner.
