Search for draw this again and you see a meme where deviants are showing their progress through the years. Examples:
Then there's a trend on YouTube where deviants are posting video blogs about their deviantART experiences. I recently caught this one by DomieNeek that I was charmed by. She makes great points, too!
In November we published a Journal on dt's Blog, very discreetly announcing that we've launched a set of API's (Application Programming Interfaces) so that developers out there could make Apps for deviantART.

You can import a deviation into muro,(View your deviation, then look on the right and select import to deviantART Muro) or just draw.
Muro works on wacom tablets which have pressure sensitivity. Which is awesome.
It also works on mobile devices but gets a little laggy.
See the layers? You can import an image to a layer. You can do simple photo manipulations in Muro.

Catwoman was jumping in and out of apartments of course robbing them. “Looks like this kitty found a new playpen,” said catwoman. Catwoman began looking through drawers. There was a tap on the wall behind her. Catwoman turned around to look what made the sound. Catwoman asked, “Who the hell are you?” “I’m Blackcat,” Blackcat replied. “Why are you looking through my drawers?”Catwoman replied, “I don’t know? Maybe ‘cuz it’

9/11people... please dont write fanfictions or reader inserts about 9/11... even if you aren't trying to dis it, it's still wrong to write about a humanized country who falls in love on one of the saddest days in American history.9/113 years ago in Personal More Like This
it's just plain disrespectful.
EDIT: Due to confusion on the matter, let me clarify.
I'm not saying that we shouldn't write about it. I mean that the romance and humor and how people take this day lightly shouldn't be allowed.
If America and the reader pay their respects, or the reader comforts America (or vice versa) I think that's acceptable.

This is a guide for people who start with commissions, the compiled points serve as advice on how to proceed. Sometimes I was asked for tips and decided to write this. After being on deviantart and other places and making commissions for few years I have gathered quite a bit of experience.
I hope you will find this helpful and enjoyable.
To sell anything (pictures, writing, crafts...etc) you need first to be discovered and seen by potential customers. Here is how you can make that happen!

Ready, Set, NaNo!So it's that time of the year again and we're all racing around trying to get our bits together for NaNoWriMo. OR, we're laughing at the people running around trying to get all their bits together for NaNo. In the past, I've written articles on what NaNo is and how to prepare for it. This isn't one of those articles. Well, not entirely. Let's start with the glaringly obvious.Ready, Set, NaNo!9 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
What's the point of NaNo?
If you answered "To write a 50k Word Count Novel in a month's time," you're wrong. NaNo is about conditioning writers to write regularly, keep those creative juices flowing and to work under pressure. November is a busy month. Students are back in school. Parents are dealing with said students. In the United States, we have Thanksgiving and of course everyone is getting ready for Christmas. Add in clearing 1,667 words a day and we're talking about some major pressure. But that's the poi

Have you ever wandered through the Literature Gallery here on dA and wondered what the Characters & Settings sub category was for? Then ask no more. It should almost be obvious what goes in here, but let's play dumb for a minute.
The Characters & Settings gallery is NOT for your prose, poetry or scripts. Finished stories or poems don't belong here. They belong in their own categories. Here, we should find character information. Well what is character information:
Characters Sheets. Any character sheet that you've completed for your character(s) and would like to share. Blank sheets should be submitted to the Resources & Stocks > Tutorials > Writing gallery.Character Profiles or Biographies. You wrote a short description or history for your character but it won't be included in the final cut of your story.

How To Be A Productive WriterHow To Be A Productive WriterHow To Be A Productive Writer1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
You know the type: the writer who submits something new everyday, who floods your inbox with new poems and prose pieces that they somehow had time to write since the last time you logged in to dA. How do they do it? Are there more than 24 hours in their day? Do they have chunks of spare time that you don't? Super discipline? Magic powers?
It may seem like a strange and mystical phenomenon, but believe it or not, that person is probably just as busy as you are. Even more unbelievable: you can become that person, too. It doesn't take magic powers or a high tolerance to lack of sleep or loads of spare time, but it does take discipline. Ready? Okay.
Actually, not quite ready yet. You know when you're really on a roll, when you're writing and writing and suddenly... you stop to check Facebook? Yeah. Whether it be Facebook or email or the refrigerator or deviantART, we want to get rid of distractions. Move to a distraction-free ar

How to: AnatomyHuman anatomy is, for sure, one of the hardest things to draw. But at the same time it's one of the most interesting things to draw, because... hey... we love making characters, and it's nice if they at least look a bit like a human being. I'm still far from perfect at drawing the human body, yet I've accumulated some very useful tips, tricks and websites.How to: Anatomy4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Drawing from life
Drawing from life is awesome!
Look for life drawing classes in your environment, or if they're not available; ask your friends to pose for you. Go have a drink in the city when the weather is nice, and sketch people passing by. There's nowhere you learn more about human anatomy than by observing and sketching real people. There's only one downside to this; dynamic poses are tricky, as it's hard for any model to hold a difficult pose for a long time.
And no... drawing (nearly) naked people in a drawing class isn't awkward. I
