It's time to start our new challenge! This should be fun and I hope many of you have the time to participate. You'll have a lot of leeway, so don't be left out.
Now go and challenge yourself!
Our New Challenge
Our new challenge is called "Long Lovely Ladies" and it features the stock of delainestock, jl-modelstock, FairieGoodMother, magikstock, and TearzStock.
The #1 theme from the recent poll was fantasy, so this will be a fantasy theme challenge.
Please do not make a surreal or conceptual image. They are different from fantasy:
Fantasy is full of wonder or strange fancies. It is whimsical, full of magic, and more like a day dream.
This is a "scene" challenge. If you do not know the difference between a "scene" and a "design", please read the walk through here:

NEW CONTEST: Retro Photomanipulation! HBD, DA!!!It's DA's 15th Birthday!NEW CONTEST: Retro Photomanipulation! HBD, DA!!!4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Have you ever wanted to create a photomanipulation in an older style or using a past cliche, perhaps with big, fluffy dresses or butterfly wings? Perhaps you wanted to make a lizard-creature or a vampire? Get excited! This is your chance to modernize an older look and win prizes!!
To celebrate DA's birthday, we'll be going retroactive. That means your job is to create a NEW photomanipulation from an older style. Do not copy someone else's art; rather, create a new, unique artwork inspired by an older style or theme.
This is not an attempt to bring back old styles or cliches. Rather, this contest is a chance to celebrate the evolution of the photomanipulation community. Here's the trick: Your job is to take an old style or theme and make it your own: fresh, relevant, unique, and creative!
Here are just a couple of stylistic examples just to show you what we'r

Tips to Improve your Visibility on DA: Part 2!Hello all! Co-founder Saeglopur12 here, back again with a little follow-up piece to last week's entry on simple ways to improve your visibility on DeviantART. Today's topic will focus on an often-misunderstood, easily-overlooked tool that I've found can be a great little helper in driving traffic to your main DA page: Llama badges!!Tips to Improve your Visibility on DA: Part 2!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Today's Tip for Growing Your DA Presence: Llama Badges!!
I don't know about the rest of you guys, but many times on this site I've encountered deviants who regard 'Llama badges' as a mystery, an irrelevance, or even an outright nuisance. But I'm here to tell you today that these little fellas can really be put to good use! That's right, llama badges can drive traffic to your main page (and of course, your gallery). Curious? Read on!
To understand the logic behind 'strategic llama use', you first have to really take a good look at the way the site functions as a whole. Specifically, let's consider the process of adding a deviation to your Favorites
