Partly because I do not have enough funds to sponsor something like this.
I decided to up the ante this week and do a PM giveaway too Each month, I will try to give out 2 or more memberships to people! Read the thumb for more info. All big things start small, so this time it'll only be a 1 month membership. But next time, I hope i can make it a 3 month one! Or just give out 2 1-month ones. But trust me, you can do a LOT with a 1 month premium membership. Believe it when I say that if it wasn't for my first premium, I could never have done all these giveaways you see today. Anyway, here's what you need to do to enter: How to Enter: 1. Add this journal to your faves. 1a. Comment below why you want it.
PLEASE READ AND JOIN! BIG PM giveaway!I'll always keep points and PM giveaways separate, plus i'm moving some of the points from my previous giveaway to this one.

How to earn points:faq279:How to earn points1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Yeah. My articles are based off of FAQs But I've had a lot of people ask me this so I'm gonna try my best to answer it. I won't guarantee that you'll be a multi-millionaire and able to swim in a pool of points but I can help you earn some.
For starters, I have to tell you what points are! You can't earn them if you don't know what they are.
To me, points are the currency of dA but they are worthless unless they were earned using the commissions widget, which I will talk about later in this article. But having a lot of it can be good and bad in a way.
Let me start you off with the bad
People will ask you for it! (Not that giving is a bad thing but once you get a page full of comments asking "points plz" you'll wish you've never had any of those wretched things. )

Apologies for the ridiculously late posting, but here are the results of our first group Switch Around Meme collaboration! We had 50+participants, 150+ individual artworks, and a whole bunch of fantastic final pieces, so make sure to take a look.
Thank you to all the participants, all our helper line-art and coloring artists, as well as the admins who helped me manage this event. This collaboration event was met with a great deal of enthusiasm, so we will likely have more (better-organized) collab events in the future.

Some tips to get more watchers on dA x3First of all, the amount of watchers is only a number. It doesn't necessary say how good your skills are. It's more how many people are interested in your art and how much it's seen in the community, in my opinion. Never forget it!^^Some tips to get more watchers on dA x37 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Yes, it indeed is hard to get noticed on dA. There are so many amazing artists and if you're new here, it's a big challenge! However, there are some tips to get seen by more people!
Most of the tips are based on own experiences and what I observed. People have different experiences, so there is no real instruction! xD
Here are my personal tips:
Be active! It means, comment, fave and watch other people's art. Many of them will visit your profile to thank you and hey, maybe they like your art!
Commenting on many deviations also means that people will see your name and are likely to remember it!
Get an interesting avatar! Cause if your avatar looks interesting, people are more likely to click on it! Choose an avatar which rep

Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.Conquer your artblock6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.
Beat your fear
Most artblocks come from fear. The fear of not being able to

Tips For Commission ArtistsHello! I thought of making this small guide, based from my personal experience, to give tips to artists, mostly beginners, to be more successful at selling commissions, since seeing from my previous journal many had difficulty with it. So here are some tips to help boosting your sales.Tips For Commission Artists5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Have your commission info somewhere visible
Possibly, people won't even know you are taking commissions or if they are open if you don't put your commission info somewhere they can see. You can do this in a journal, that I mostly recommend, since it will be showing into your watcher's inboxes and most of your watchers probably rarely visit your profile page. You could still also use the commission widget, or donation poll to write your info. You can also link to your commission info in your signature or the artist's comment of new drawings you upload.
Keep it simple
Don't add too many unnecessary rules or in
Using HTML on deviantARTUsing HTML on deviantART4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking.
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place?
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

Previously featured artist was bwaworga and I was glad to feature a deviant as talented as her.
Today I'm featuring someone very well known on deviantART, one of the most inspirational artists that I've seen on this site. It's not only his flawless images, art of dancing, everyday beauty, love stories; it's also little tales in the description boxes that I find beautiful and intriguing:
