Texture Your World ContestTell us the story of your world in textures!Texture Your World Contest2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?
We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.
There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.
These are textures created digitally by

Craft a Moustache ContestWhat is Movember?Craft a Moustache Contest2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
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.

Welcome To The Today Page
Dawn by Smattila
The wonderful thing about the shared global art narrative is that it’s constantly evolving.
A new chapter in the deviantART story has begun, with a new Today Page focused on outreach and engagement, telling our stories and bringing a devious lens to the world around us. We seek to monitor, analyze, report on, and most importantly, be a part of encouraging the bond between art, life and the human spirit using the pulse of the first digitally-oriented art collective and in ways older, established media cannot.

Once again, deviantART has answered the call to be a major sponsor in transforming Artists' Alley at Comic-Con International San Diego a chalice for the arts—bigger, but better, smarter, more informative, more connective and more dedicated than ever to the needs and desires of the artists who daily re-imagine and reshape our reality and dreams for the better.
If you are among the privileged ticket holders who braved the storms and seas to reach the core of the labyrinth, come to Artists' Alley, the artists’ oasis that is the liberated territory occupied and administered by deviantART and experience the rush from being washed in today’s most creative art flowing from the heart of our world.

Film, Animation and Flash Mini-Contest!Hello folks! So this month is Flash, Animation and Flash month for the ArtHistoryProject.Film, Animation and Flash Mini-Contest!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So me and SqueakyToybox have been discussing about the idea of having a joint contest! We struggled for a while to find a good theme that would apply well across these mediums. So then we thought deviantART is full of members across the world. Even myself I'm from the UK and SqueakyToybox is from Australia so we're literally halfway across the world from each other.
So we thought a good theme to set you all is:
We would like you to create a piece of work using animation, video or Flash and we will award prizes for each gallery! So we will have a prize for a winner and runner up for film/animation and the same for Flash.
You have until the end of this month, February 28th to send all your work in and we'll announce winners shortly after! Now we appreciate that's not exactly a lot of production time for this sort of wor

How did you first discover deviantART?
Well to be completely honest, i had no idea that this site even existed, until i got with husband . He told me about this website that is dedicated to artist , and I took and look and decided to join.
What was it about dA that made you want to stay?
Its addicting !! Ok well it is but the real reason why, is because of how amazing everyone is. The people i had met when i first got on da were amazing! The more and more people i meet, i feel like im growing not with only myself but with all of those around me.
Also i would have to say all the inspiration i have gotten from so many different types of art, and the biggest thing is being able to relate to people, because we all have our story !

There is no volunteer for 3D Art!? What do we do now?
First than anything, let's give a warm farewell to the volunteers who have stepped down from the team recently: ditto9, DpressedSoul, DemonMathiel, StamatisGR and WillowXD
As you can see, one of them is WillowXD who until recently, took care of the Game Development Art and Digital Art > 3D, meaning we don't currently have somebody taking care of 3D Art. Who do you send your 3D suggestions to then? For the time being, please address your suggestions to Moonbeam13 in the meantime a new volunteer is selected.

How did you first discover deviantART?
Back in 2004, TheRyanFord was already a well known member and he told me, "you should check out deviantART and post up some of your work." So, I did and here I am 7 years later.
What was it about dA that made you want to stay?
The cool thing that I love about dA is the feedback. Every time I posted work on deviantart I always got helpful feedback, rather if it was good or bad. Also, we have great company culture.
What is the story behind your username?
Haha, there was this family owned music store near my old college called "Bionic Records." When i was taking art/design classes and other liberal study classes, I would always go to bionic records on my lunch and buy some cd's or vinyl records. Anyway, I neede

Urbex #2Urban Exploration is the exploration of man-made structures. Usually these are abandoned ruins, or components that used to be part of everyday life but are no longer seen on a regular basis by the human eye. This series of articles aims to highlight exactly what Urban Exploration is, how it's achieved and the some of the best Urbex Photographers here on deviantART.Urbex #22 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The internet has provided Urban explorers with many opportunities to garner news of new locations, the best places to go to 'urban explore' and what to avoid. Additionally social media means that we can share places that others will never see, and never hoped to see until the introduction of the internet and the ease with which we can communicate. So as this series goes on, we're going to look at some of the top Urban Exploration websites, at the current time, online.

I somehow managed to get one of the more weirdly named prizes in the Masquerade for my C.C. artbook costume, I was in a bit of a daze at the time but it had something to do with how big my dress was. (I must add that no small people or orphans were harmed carrying around my voluminous skirts all weekend! John will remember the full name of it no doubt, I was too busy at the time trying not to throw up from nerves lol )
So, now thats over and done with I will do stock as soon as I find some convenient time. It was far too bloody cold at the weekend to take more than 1 or 2 shots just to show the dress off.

Celebrating Diversity #12This edition of Celebrating Diversity I want to focus on two extremes of art: Extremely detailed and realistic works and minimal and abstract art. Both tendencies or trends have their place and time in art and history and are appreciated by many people. Not always does one person like both, but to me personally, art has always been more about feeling, than about complexity. Something simple can touch me emotionally as well as something blasting with details. Art is just as individual as every human being!Celebrating Diversity #122 years ago in Art Features More Like This
