The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally
handed out on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.
`blepharopsis has developed a truly iconic gallery within our
community. Whilst at first you may be somewhat creeped out by the extreme shots of creepy
crawlies, you can't help but be captivated by the detail and quality of the artwork that has
become Igor's trademark style. Unlike any other insect photographer, Igor manages to

Seniority Announcement - June 2012Seniority Announcement - June 20123 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
This article marks the latest announcements detailing the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 900 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 t

Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography ContestIt is time for another Typography contest! The theme of this contest will be…Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography Contest3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Bring your Type to Life
This may sound abstract at first, but to keep the theme as open as possible, I choose a rather abstract title. There are many directions in which you can go. You could choose an anthropomorphic direction, where you breathe life into letters and give them human or other animate characteristics. Another route would be to create the letters out of living objects, such as plants or animals.
Which direction you choose, maybe even a third or fourth one, does not matter. What matters is that your letters are brought to life!
What kind of letters you bring to life, words, glyphs or sentences, is 100% up to you. This contest has a more visual approach, so you will not be judged on the creativity of the meaning you choose to give to the letters. However, don't rush it! Even one letter can appear completely different than another. Be wise with the letters, word

Discover more of your favorite topics.
Tags create landing pages around topics — making it easier to discover related artwork, bringing together artists and art appreciators, and forming communities around common interests. As DeviantArt grows and creates new ways to discover great content, we believe tags will play an important role in better surfacing artwork.
Tag Deviations, Collections, and Status Updates
You now have the ability to tag your deviations and Collections. Tags added to your deviations will be publicly viewable — this is a change from the previous use of keywords, which were private. Visitors can learn about your work by viewing how you tagged it, and can find more works by you and other deviants based on tags. Tags can also be used in comments, Status Updates, Journals, and Collections.
Tagging your deviations and Collections will improve their visibility across the

Thank you for your suggestions last week. We love hearing from you about what you like and how we could improve!
But now, we're back to the contest action! This week, we're having a photography contest! We want to understand a bit more about where you come from and your hometown.
Your challenge is to pick your favorite thing about your hometown and submit a photograph of it!
For example, my favorite thing about my hometown is the nature, so I would submit a picture from my Gallery such as the following:
What do you most like about your hometown? Is it the people, the weather, the wildlife? What one thing stands out the most? We want to see!
Remember that this is a photography only contest! We don't have many contests for the photographers, so we wanted to give you an opportunity to strut your stuff. It's always helpful to include in your deviation description that your entry is for PremiumMembers. Feel free to submit as many

Explore the full range of DeviantArt.
With better organization and improved structure, our new navigation creates a more streamlined site experience. Features like Today, Undiscovered, and What’s Hot have been given more prominence, while the More menu is now easily accessible with its simplified, new look. The addition of infinite scroll on Daily Deviations allows you to quickly discover even more hand-selected deviations. This all adds up to more control over what you use most and makes it easier to discover great artists and their art.
The More menu, which was previously available next to the DeviantArt logo, has been better organized and moved to a more prominent and convenient location. This change was based on community feedback that its previous placement was hard to find, and its contents overwhelming.

Since that time, we've grown to be the world's largest online art community, but even a site as massive and established as deviantART had to start somewhere.

For this year's community event, we're embracing the idea of starting small and creating something amazing from just a few quick sketches. We've started this work for you and challenge you to finish it with the pizzazz that only the best art community in the world co

The wonderful thing about the shared global art narrative is that it’s constantly evolving.

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.
