What's Hot (Beta): Trending Artwork on deviantARTArt on the RiseWhat's Hot (Beta): Trending Artwork on deviantART2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
DeviantART is a bustling and active community, and with the high volume of artwork submitted on any given day, it can be easy to miss something. In fact, it's common for artwork to go viral across the Web or get a spike of traffic days, months, or even years after it was originally submitted.
Our new “What’s Hot” browse mode surfaces artwork that’s receiving a recent increase in exposure, regardless of when it was submitted.
A New Way To Surface Artwork
We often see artwork gain a lot of attention across the Web (after being shared on blogs, social sites, etc.), but by the time this recognition occurs, our search engines don't consider it when displaying recently "Popular" deviations. The new "What’s Hot" mode is built to celebrate these surges of exposure.

The content of the “What’s Hot” page uses an algorithm that reflects what artwork has recently garnered attention, regardless of when it was subm
Guardians of the GalaxyGo see it. Twice.Guardians of the Galaxy7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Because you won't hear half the dialog the first time around thanks to the audience's laughter.
Guardians of the Galaxy finds a right mix between humor, drama, and action. Even though I entered this movie with no knowledge of the comic book or its characters, I had no trouble getting into the story and being invested in each character's role. Peter "Star Lord" Quill instantly earns some audience empathy when he suffers a loss and is pulled into a space opera setting where he encounters Gamora, Rocket, Groot, and eventually Drax the Destroyer. Each of these characters is a loser.
More specifically, they've nothing left to lose. And that's what makes Marvel heroes different from DC. DC heroes are iconic, yet they are also so high on pedestals they can feel unreachable. Marvel heroes are more fallible, more vulnerable. They do the right thing not because of inherent qualities, but because they look around and decide what they've tried so far just hasn't worked.

Girls Collab - CLOSED! The list of remaining characters is at the very bottom of the page under "suggestions".Girls Collab - CLOSED!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
All the required characters have been turned in, so that means the final due date is one month from now on February 6th.
You can still sign up for characters, but the due date for any character is February 6th, even if you sign up a week before that day.
Also, since we only have one month left, people who've reached their max amount of charcters can do a few more if they wish. Let's say... three more if they so choose.
For this collab, we will be drawing all the Disney girls we can!
:iconattention-plz: PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE SIGNING UP! I don't want you to draw a character and not be allowed in because you missed a rule. ;_;
Any girl character can only be in the collab once. In other words, if someone has already taken her, then you can't sign up for her.
When we're done, Zimeta will put together all the individual girl
I Can See, Bullies, and BirthdaysYesterday I picked up my new glasses! I knew I had a little difficulty with seeing, but I had no idea how extreme it was until I put on one of my two new glasses (good old Specsavers - buy one get one free). It was like seeing everything in high definition, everything became sharper and more focussed. I was sat at one end of this corridor in the optician's when I put them on. There was a poster at the end of the corridor. I couldn't read it at all before, but when I put my glasses on I could read every word on it with crystal clarity. They've also made books a lot easier to read. I can now read in twenty minutes what would normally take me an hour to read. Needless to say, I am totally in love with my new glasses and will wear them with pride!I Can See, Bullies, and Birthdays3 months ago in Personal More Like This

Theme: General Christmas Baking
From holding a recent poll, it seems the majority of you are most interested in baking traditional food for your country/family or food you usually bake over Christmas rather than a set recipe. Therefore I have decided that as long as it is relevant to Christmas in some way, shape or form in recipe, flavour or presentation it will be considered as an entry.
Rules and requirements:
You must include Christmas into your baking, decorating or surroundings in some shape or form.

Be Clueless, Write Awesome.Why finish anything when you might not be good enough yet?Be Clueless, Write Awesome.4 months ago in Personal More Like This
There are myriad ways to avoid completing a project, and one of them is to become the eternal student. Always learning, always improving, so that future hypothetical story keeps getting better and better... While somehow never making its way into reality.
But on the other hand, it might help to know a bit about swimming before jumping overboard. So where do you draw the line? What do you absolutely need to know before getting your feet wet with a story?
I can't speak for anyone else. But when I started Dreamkeepers, I didn't know jack about story.
I didn't know about inciting events, verisimilitude, thematic armature, pinch points, none of it.
Quite simply, I did not know what the hell I was doing. Which makes for an interesting question about my first books.
Why don't they suck?

Critiquing Critiquing StoryStory: Turns out you're doing it wrong.Critiquing Critiquing Story6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone is- and what's more, anyone who tries to make a foray into storytelling without having mastery over their efforts merits endless scorn.
I've had the privilege of sharing advice with some other creators of late, and seen some of the (usually anonymous) criticism being leveled at their work. It's noteworthy for being intense, superficially sophisticated, and misguided.
Now, there are two kinds of creators out there. Those who don't give a fig for what other people think, and dismiss all criticism out of hand.
...Those creators tend not to improve.
Then there are those who care about the quality of their work, take pains to make it enjoyable for others, and are receptive to feedback.
These individuals have the most potential as writers, and are also most vulnerable to their efforts being permanently deformed by vindictive critique.
They'll be assured their characters are flat cutout
The Game Behind a Good StoryPrevious articles revealed tricks to snag reader interest- but what keeps that spark alive?The Game Behind a Good Story3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
When a promising concept with sparkling characters goes soggy midway through the story, when readers leave in disgust, what exactly is happening? How can wildly fantastical movies with spaceships, dragons, and magic be considered perfectly plausible, only to be condemned as 'unrealistic' over the most mundane of details?
For the answer we're putting down Finnigan's Wake and picking up Super Metroid. Because there's something necessarily inherent to games that reveals the secret of a satisfying story.
There are plenty of things that might ruin a game- but violate this one sacred principle, and you can make the experience universally detested by players.
Games require rules.
Now, a quick aside: In various circles that's a hotly contested assertion. Some are quick to declare that 'game' means anything anyone wants, and definitions somehow suppress creative expr

Went Undercover as a Student at a UniversitySorry for lack of updates, I have been away for a bit. But now I am back to tell more stories and upload more art. Anyway. Sometimes Ry can be a troll (Just sometimes). And I did exactly that last week actually. I pulled off a 21 Jump Street. Right, so I was in Melbourne for a convention and I also stayed longer for a few days to hang out with friends. The night before convention, my friend Alice (Who is a core member of the Japan Club) invited me to visit her University at RMIT for a Japanese movie night as part of her Japan Club's activity. At first I was a bit unsure whether I should go or not since I am not a member of the club or the Uni. But I do like to watch Japanese movies, so I went! :iconmingplz:Went Undercover as a Student at a University11 months ago in Personal More Like This
