12 Days of Premiums Project-COMPLETEWe have reached the goal! Thank you everyone for helping out. This means so much to me, I couldn't have done it without you.12 Days of Premiums Project-COMPLETE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Update: 1920 points to go and 20 days to make it happen!
If 24 people donate 80 points (which is about a dollar), we can hit the goal.
Update: 3,669 points to go and 24 days to make it happen.
If we get 50 people to donate 74 points, then we will reach the goal. 74 points is less then a dollar each. Please help me reach this goal so that I can make 12 people happy this holiday season.
Update: We still have about 9,700 points to go and a little over a month to make this happen.
If anyone can help spread the word about the 12 Days of Premiums Project, I would be forever grateful! Anything at all will help the cause be better known (journals, polls, etc.) Perhaps then we can actually reach the goal

When it comes to photojournalism we often think about the importance of "speaking out". It's what we do and what we believe wholeheartedly in, often at great risk. Which is why it can be easy to forget that the first step in photojournalism is actually shutting up and listening.
Folk and Fairy TalesI saw three ads today for Disney's 'Maleficent,' and it got me reminiscing about all the folk/fairytales I read through high school, and trying to figure out what in the hell a dude with owl eyes, lustful monks, and all sorts of generally stupid, greedy, or horny people were supposed to be teaching me about life. I mean...don't sew? Invite evil fairies to your birthday? Don't let a stranger impregnate you while you're comatose?

St. Valentine's CSS Challenge:iconJournalCSs:St. Valentine's CSS Challenge1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
are teaming up for a Valentine CSS Challenge, the first of many challenges to come in the future....
What prompted this challenge? The lack of activity in both groups and the skinning community in general. We want both groups to be more active, to gain more publicity, to show we're still alive and not dead as others lately. We plan to do monthly challenges based on specific themes.
It's time to get out the glitter & glue, the Chocolate & Candy Hearts and flowers, because "St. Valentine's Day" is the theme!
Your task is to incorporate the theme "Valentine's Day" in a beautiful, free, user-friendly new Journal skin or an equal

The Triumph ProjectDr. Maya Angelou, a literary and cultural luminary, died this Wednesday. While glowing words have and will continue to be spoken about her talent, activism, and dauntless spirit, she is honored especially for her body of work. She took her own suffering and the suffering of others and, through her words, transfigured that suffering into triumphant art.The Triumph Project9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Some of us in Community Relations invite you to participate in a new Project in remembrance of Dr. Angelou, one that grew out of a suggestion by Aeirmid. Together, we'll be creating art about triumph, be it personal, societal, or even hypothetical. At the end of the project, all deviations will be featured. This isn't a contest; it is a way for us to use our talents, following Dr. Angelou's example, to enrich our community.
What counts as triumphant? That's up to you. It could be a non-fiction biographical account of an historic leader, or an autobiographical poem about a personal moment of triumph.

A bit about social mediaThis video has been a hype on the internet over the past view days;A bit about social media10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It's not the first time a similar message is send, and it's probably not the last time.
Over the years, I've seen many of those messages seen popping up on (how ironically) social media. And while the intention is good, I think the whole "quit social media" thing in general is a bit too one-sided. They don't realize that social media isn't just something we can stop over a day. It has become a collective mindset. A communication standard. Like phone calls and letters used to be our main form of communication in the 90's, social media now has become our standard for communication.
The matter is the same. It's just the medium that shifted.
I didn't have a Facebook account until late 2011, and I didn't have a smartphone until early 2012 (and that was only because my boss got me a new phone, and it happened to be smart). Yes, I was late. The reason for that? I absolutely hated the smartphone generation!

Why now? Well... I’ve just come back from Lucca Comics & Games - the best and biggest comics, games and cosplay fair we have in Italy. It reminds me when I was there last year and I had a bad car accident on my way back home. I don’t know how to describe it correctly in english.. my car got hit by a very big jeep from behind, the thrust was so intense it made my car tip over and land on the car in front of me, then rebounded several times on the road crashing sides of the car and the roof of my (at this point destroyed) vehicle. Fortunately I didn’t get any serious injuries, but I had to rest in bed for one month and for four months I have been away from fairs and events …
But - hey - I’ve been lucky, I'm still here, and back in action! Isn

Dear [name of original writer],
Thank you very much for your email.
I have multiple requests for the same information from many devianart users, this response is bcc'ed to all parties seeking clarification.
I am aware of all the discussions regarding the use of sxc.hu images by devianart users. It appears a lot of the users have misinterpreted the terms of the license agreement granted by sxc.hu and I will be happy to clarify and hopefully answer all of the questions.

Free Commissons for 365 Day Cartoon ProjectHi everyone.Free Commissons for 365 Day Cartoon Project2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you may remember when I attempted to start a 365 day drawing project last year but only got through about 10 days.
This year, I have decided to start it up again. Although it's going to be all cartoons! Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, Nickeloden, Cartoon Network, everything!
Now I thought this would be a great idea to get everyone involved. So what I want you to do is comment below with your suggestions, and hopefuly, (depending on how many I get) I will make my way through them all!
Okay, to make this easier, im going to set out some rules/guidelines.
If possible, please leave the name of the company/tv show that produced/featured the character.
Leave the name of the character, or send me a link of the image you want drawn (although, if I do not wish to do that specific drawing, I will pick something else). I will give you a number and this will be the day I do your drawing.

MASS ART THEFT!!A website called Imagixs is putting up a ton of art from DA on there as "free coloring pages". If you type your username into the search bar on the site, something of yours might come up. I found several of my pieces and my friends pieces on there. It's very upsetting to see your hard work put on there without permission, not to mention the huge copyright violation. There is a petition to delete the website however, so please sign it!MASS ART THEFT!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
