PE DD Week: Why did an icon get a DD?Why did an icon get a DD?PE DD Week: Why did an icon get a DD?2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Daily deviations tend to be a controversial topic within the community and whether or not a DD is worthy of the feature is, as such, often discussed.
As a CV for Icons & Handhelds I often find it interesting to read these discussions, since that way I can see what the community expects of the features, but the recent negativity on the Icons & Handhelds DDs is something I would like to address, which is why I'm thankful I'm given this opportunity during the Daily Deviation PE-week. I will try to explain why I think icons and handhelds are worthy of the feature and why they may be dismissed just a bit too quickly.
Let's begin at the beginning.
When deviantART first started, it was a site that mainly geared towards customization. Be it wallpapers or icons, if you take a look at some of the first DDs. So how come there'

Hey let's make a collection of Naruto characters plz-icons and stamps! As there are so many plz-icons and stamps out there we'll need your help in making this collection thrive! Post your icons in the comments and we'll add them as well!
If you're wondering, here is how you can actually use plz-icons and stamps.
They can be used in comments, journal entries and in your dA-ID. To use a specific icon, take a look at what the name of the icon is, and then do the following.
-copy the name of the icon, for example, narutoplz
-enter the name along with ':icon' in front of it and end it with ':' (it should look like this :iconnarutoplz:)
-if you're uncertain whether or not you've got the right icon (or if it's actually going to work), click 'preview' next to the 'submit' button
Project Educate: DeviantART-Related[deviantART related]Project Educate: DeviantART-Related5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Avatars, whether for a Personal Site or a Group, can say a lot about the Deviant or Group by how the Avatar appears on the profile page. All Deviants and Groups can have an Avatar, as long as the Avatars are within certain parameters. Many Deviants keep the same avatar for years, often becoming known by their Avatar. Others will change their Avatars as the seasons change, or to match an upcoming holiday. Some Deviants have their names on their Avatars, some have flashy Animated Avatars and some have classic, simple Avatars. Since Avatars can be easily changed, there are Deviants who change their's as their mood, likes or dislikes alter.
Avatars can be viewed in Journals or in Artists' Descriptions by using the "icon" option. To write out a deviant's name, the "dev" link can be used by simply typing : devthestockwarehouse : (without the spaces), but to showcase the actual Avatar, :iconthestockwareho
Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!Manip Academy5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.

For today we have Mirz123! She creates fantasic stamps, sometimes fun and silly, but also often with an important and profound message, and always in her recognisable style. She's also an enthusiastic community member in many aspects, and can be found in many corners of the community.

The concept of "original characters" may be a bit foreign to writers, as when you create a piece of literature, in most cases, everyone in the story is an original character. However, with advent of role-playing (in its many various forms), non-writers and writers alike found themselves created characters to use in games and otherwise. Sometimes the characters represent themselves, other times not. The main thing that remains the same is that they are loved and cherished by their creator. And who doesn't love showing off their creations. A while ago, I ran a poll asking my watchers and visitors to share some o

A Bit of Begging I think most of you know that Ravenswd and I created a holiday animation back in October. http://ravenswd.deviantart.com/art/Musical-Emote-Holiday-Lights-2-260223458 I don't do this often. I don't like to beg for myself because it makes me feel very whorish (I'll beg for others because that's more what begging is for in my book). Anyhow, could you pimp it out? One of the reasons we released it early was to get it exposure, but I know we released it *too* early. We had to, but that's a moot point. I don't mean mentioning it for a DD either, as I know many people have already and I don't hold any hope for that. I just want it to get some views for the holiday. The last time we did this, it went up a few days before Christmas and hardly anyone saw it. I'm actually thinking of taking it down from Ravenswd's account and re-posting it here on my account as I have more watchers and perhaps we'll get some more looks.A Bit of Begging3 years ago in Personal More Like This

On my profile page, I feature a new deviation every day (or two or three). The piece is usually something that caught my eye. Could be an amazing digital painting, a fun stamp, a quick photograph that made me smile, perhaps a piece for a weekly theme, whatever. However, it moved me enough to share it with my visitors.

This is the master list of deviants we pull from when we choose the emote to feature for the day.
By no means is this list ever fully complete, if you don't find yourself on the list, note us or comment on this journal and we can add you to the list, if you meet the following criteria:
1. You must have at least 1 emoticon in your gallery, otherwise we ain't got nothing to feature if your name comes up.
2. You can only have up to three separate accounts from your main account on the list.
Any deviant's name with an asterisk and a number next to it means that that user has an alternate account, and can be found with the same asterisk number code. If I've made any mistakes, such as the wrong accounts linked together or one account has no emotes on it, don't be afraid to sen

Now all the premium members can have a small widget like thing in your deviation to directly sell your contents. I know it looks cool to have that cool widget thing displayed in your deviation page. But is it really worth it? Think about it!
Perhaps you've clearly read what it says... 80% revenue shall be transferred to the the seller and rest goes to deviantART! So, why should a seller loose 20% of the revenue if he/she can sell the same content by other means and yet loose nothing? The seller might not loose but then the buyer looses if the seller doesn't.
Let me get into more details with some scenarios and example to make more sense....

Now you may be excited to sell it using the new premium content platform. Right? So, what do you do? You quote 1000pts as
I.I.T.Eyes featureThere is nothing strange when a Muslim makes a contribution for Islam or for Muslims. but when a non-Muslim does that, it raises feelings of admiration and respect among Muslims. and maybe raises eyebrows, confusion and questioning among many non-Muslims. throughout history, many non-Muslims expressed honest and positive opinions and thoughts about Islam. this expression takes different forms. here in deviantART, being an art community, it takes the form of drawing, photography and literature.I.I.T.Eyes feature3 years ago in Personal More Like This
