Similar Deviations
I must say, it's good to see new episodes again. After S3, I set my expectations from very low to none. I'm impressed with this! Got to see some very awesome events! More showing of the Royal Sisters is good. I expect good things from this season. Holy Elements of Harmony, Celestia!

Happy for a new addition to the intro!

Site Update: Bug Fixes and Feedback

Thu Sep 26, 2013, 6:38 PM


In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.

  • Dragging styled page elements into Writer in browsers other than Google Chrome would result in unallowed styles being included in the Writer document. Fixed by kemayo

Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback left on last week's update! Here's some of what you had to say:
  • Feedback regarding the "Add file to my Sta.sh" button was mixed. Some deviants voiced concern file security, while others mentioned that files in Sta.sh are private until you share the link to begin with.
  • Responses to the Discuss topic varied. Some of the use cases mentioned include using Sta.sh as a means of sharing works in progress or delivering completed work for commissioners, as an area to prepare Journals and events for Groups, or as a place to share their art with friends prior to submitting to deviantART.
  • Some deviants would like Share buttons to be available for Blogger and WordPress. Suggested by sira

Discuss!

Group Gallery Settings
For those of you who help administrate Groups, have you ever changed the Group's Gallery Submission settings from the default options? If so, what have you changed, and why? Did you find the process of changing it easy to navigate?

The deviantART community is always growing and changing. To keep the site fresh and relevant, we need to focus on what's important, otherwise we'll spread ourselves too thin.

Recently, we've been going through all of the site's features and settings to assess usage, traffic, community reception, and how the feature helps contribute to deviantART's goals.

dAmn It, the system where deviants can submit and vote on funny quotes from Chat (originally called "dAmn" or deviantART Messaging Network), is a feature that gets extremely low usage and traffic.

On November 30, 2013 dAmn It will be officially phased out. Until then, the feature has been removed from the main site navigation but will still be available via the Chat page for those who want to archive any quotes.

Phasing out unused and outdated features allows us to focus our resources on improving existing features and building new ones to help entertain, inspire, and empower our members.

While we know some people will miss dAmn It, "Spring cleaning" is an important step for any site to stay fresh and impactful.



dAmn It, the system where deviants can submit and vote on funny quotes from Chat, will be phased out on November 30, 2013.

deviantART deviantMEET

Posted on October 21, 2013

Join us for a deviantMEET in Hollywood!

DeviantART's headquarters are located in Hollywood, and we're hosting a deviantMEET in our own backyard!

You're Invited!

HDR Hollywood by xraystyle

Come for the speech, stay for the meet!

Whether you've attended previous deviantART events, or you want to make this your first, this deviantMEET promises to be an event unlike any before.  Opening with an exclusive storytelling session, deviantART CEO and Co-Founder, Angelo Sotira (spyed), will share behind-the-scenes stories about deviantART's inception and formative years. Then, stick around for the fun, traditional deviantMEET-type activities – sketching with friends, chatting with staff, and maybe even walking away with a bit of swag.

Map to deviantMEET

WeWork Hollywood

  • Location: 7083 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028
  • Date & Time: Wednesday, November 20th, 2013 at 7:00 PM
  • Admission: FREE, all-ages event!
  • What to Bring: Laptops/tablets, sketchbooks, cameras

It's a rare opportunity that deviantART's CEO gets to share the vision of the company, where we came from, and where we're headed offline and outside of his Journals.  We wanted to invite local deviants to have some fun with our staff, hear the tales that made us what we are today, and generally recreate the friendships you've made online at this unique offline opportunity.

After Angelo's talk, you can ask staff your burning questions, hang out and create art with supplies you've brought with you, and enjoy some free snacks. We might even have some devious swag to go around.

Feel free to bring your favorite digital tablet, iPad, sketchbooks, notepads, cameras, and laptops if you feel up to it! We can't wait to meet with you!




On Wednesday, November 20th, deviants of all ages are invited to join us in Hollywood!  Whether you've attended previous deviantART events, or you want to make this your first, this deviantMEET promises to be unlike any other!

:icontransparentplz::icontransparentplz: :star:The Prelude:star:


The last fanart contest I had was in June 09!
That's almost year and a half ago!
Why didn't you guys remind me?
:icontransparentplz::icontransparentplz::iconnarutocoolface:
:icontransparentplz::icontransparentplz: :star:Theme:star:


Draw 2 or more Real NARUTO characters in your favorite scene of a movie.

For example...

:bulletgreen: Naruto, Sakura & Killer Bee dressed up as Neo, Trinity & Morpheus fighting Akatsuki who are dressed in Agent Smith type outfits. (Matrix)

:bulletgreen: Gai is a cop on a bus & Kisame will blow up the bus if Gai's bus goes slower than 50 mph. He has to save it with his Youth ENERGY! (Speed)

:bulletgreen: Sakura gets pregnant with Sasuke's child. She has to give up the baby to Tobi. (Juno)

:bulletgreen: Naruto, Sakura, Sai & Kakashi go inside Sasuke's mind to convince him to come back to Konoha. (INCEPTION)

:bulletgreen: Kisame is a 11 foot tall Na'vi on Pandora & Yamato is the evil general trying to kill his people. (AVATAR)

The movie you plan on using can be from anywhere.
Only one movie per entry, do not mix movies.
You get the idea. You can be serious or funny, its up to you.
Important! The movie you choose has to be a live action movie. NO ANIME MOVIES!

:icontransparentplz::icontransparentplz: :star:Rules:star:


:bulletblue: The most important part of the contest is the RULES. Make an entry according to the theme. Do not expect any random fan art to be automatically added to the contest.

:bulletblue: Keep your picture CLEAN and keep it civil!

:bulletblue: Your entry must be brand new and original, and it needs to be posted after the 17th of Dec 2010.

:bulletblue: The character could be from the past as well as living or dead. It's perfectly fine. Only from the manga. Heroes / Villains / Neutrals / Regulars / etc etc! Before / during / after the time skip is okay, too!

:bulletblue: Please upload in a general size, nothing above 3000px x 3000px or below 800px x 800px. Unless it's something really, really necessary.

:bulletblue: One entry per person. Everyone gets an equal chance that way. If you want to replace the first entry you submitted, that's fine. Just let me know when you send me the note that it is replacing an old entry.

:bulletblue: If you don't know how to read the rules, I can't help you with your entry. I will ignore your entry and will not reply back to anyone who doesn't have the time to read the rules. You must read this news article completely, and understand it fully.

:bulletblue: Bend the rules as much as you like. Just don't break them!

:icontransparentplz::icontransparentplz: :star:How to Enter & Deadline:star:


:bulletred: Once you upload your entry on deviantART, please send me a note with the link inside!

:bulletred: With the title "Contest Entry".

:bulletred: That is the only way I will include it in the contest!

:bulletred: Please upload your entry by February 1st 2011!

:bulletred: This date has already been extended three times... :roll:

:icontransparentplz::icontransparentplz: :star: Obvious Tips:star:


:bulletyellow: Anyone can update or submit a different entry until the last day of submissions. This is just a option, not a suggestion.

:bulletyellow: Effort makes the difference. So does color and backgrounds. Do some extra finishing touches.

:icontransparentplz::icontransparentplz: :star:Other Info:star:


I will pick a grand prize winner.
Due to previous voting gaming.
Judging will not occur via popular vote.
The winner(s) will be announced in an updated News post!
meia15 is my contest helper.
She is the Co-pilot.
But she will not help with judging since she entered herself.
Spread the word, the more deviants in on this the more better fan art!
If something is unclear, Let me know.

Good Luck and Go! Go!! GO!!!

On the Road Again!



Well they certainly like to keep you on your toes here!
I woke up this morning in Shenzhen to a message that said to be packed and ready to leave (in TWO HOURS!) back to Hong Kong haha. Now that the whole band is together, we need to leave mainland China and have our tourist visas converted to working visas. 

I suppose now would be a good time to introduce you to the band members!

VisionBandWeb copy by tubbums32

From left to right, we have: Nuno (Bass) from Portugal, Me!, Madelin (Vocals) from Cuba, Evans (Vocals) from Canada, Paris (Vocals) from the US, Claudio (Guitar) from Italy, and Keith (Drums) from South Africa!

So you can tell by now that we're a bit diverse! haha This is part of the reason why the visa process took so long! China recently changed its policy regarding giving visas to citizens of "developing countries." For that reason, Madelin and Keith were both turned away at the airport and sent back to Cuba and South Africa and told to apply for their visas in their respective countries…Crazy!

So to catch you up...
The last time you heard from me, I was still in Hong Kong! So the following morning, after our adventure at the Avenue of Stars (fav.me/d6wsczh), Iwona (keenaz) and I went to Sai Kung Beach to see some of the less well-known areas of Hong Kong, and I've gotta say it was pretty awesome! I never expected to see something like that in a place that I'd always associated with nothing but an urban cityscape. If I hadn't been crammed in a minibus, I would have snapped some shots of the immense mountainous landscape on the way to SK – eventually, I shall! :)

More logistical nightm-- adventures!
Let's back up a little. Before being able to meet with Iwona, I was told that a guy was going to come at noon to pick my passport up from me at the hotel. While I was waiting for him, I was informed that he was a woman, but no biggie, I told my liason with whom I was texting to inform her that the impossible-to-find hotel was on the 4th floor. So I waited there at noon. Nothing. I figured it might be hard to find the place, so I took it upon myself to go up and down the elevator several times to wait at the curb and flag down anyone that looked like they were looking for me. 

At 2:30 (TWO THIRTYYYY!!!), a woman comes up to the 4th floor with some paperwork, one of which was a scan of my passport. Finally. At this point, I am also waiting for Iwona, who is on her way to the hotel to meet me for the first time. Well this woman speaks no English, so when she unexpectedly whisked me off to some unknown location for some unknown purpose, it was very difficult for me to convey to her that I had a friend that was already on the train to come to the hotel we were leaving! 

To make things more interesting, my phone has no international 3G data plan, so I was relying on random wifi connections to communicate with Iwona what the hell was going on! lol and I dunno if you've ever tried to connect (and stay connected) to wifi while sprinting after someone, but it isn't the easiest thing to do! lol All the while, I'm filling out paperwork standing on one foot, hopping from subway train to subway train – my first experience with the Hong Kong MTR was a bit of a chaotic one! haha 

We arrive at the Consulate, and wait for our number to be called to go give them the rather messily-completed paperwork and my passport. Once this is done, I am "told" that this woman (who I have nicknamed Crazy Visa Lady) will meet me back at the hotel the following day at 4pm. I don't know if this is to whisk me off again to the consulate or to just drop off my passport and await further instructions.

Untitled by tubbums32  Untitled by tubbums32

The following day!
After returning from Sai Kung Beach, Iwona and I arrive in my hotel to await Crazy Visa Lady, who is predictably an hour an a half late lol. What could not have been predicted is that she would point at me and say "Go Shenzhen." If you don't know, Shenzhen is not on the island of Hong Kong. Going to Shenzhen is effectively leaving one country and entering another. No one had prepared me for this, standing in front of my unpacked, unorganized, cluttered hotel room. So in five minutes or less, I crammed all of my worldly possesssions into my suitcase, and piled everything (including that massive keyboard) yet again, into that tiny elevator, this time with 3 additional passengers from the 4th floor! 

If I haven't articulated this enough, Crazy Visa Lady does not walk anywhere. Following her is like following a gazelle through a heard of cattle (these streets are BUSY), and all of this while now dragging around a 200 lb keyboard case and all of my luggage! The following picture was the only moderately usable documentation of this ordeal because we were moving at such immense speed – and making sure none of my precariously balanced luggage fell off of the keyboard case! 

Untitled by tubbums32


Fast forward to now!
We have been waiting for all the other members of the band to arrive from their respective countries, each with their own crazy stories of logistical adventures (;)). 
Once we were all together, we even got a chance to perform as a group at the Venice Hotel (which is where we will be playing in March, if that contract goes through!). 

Untitled by tubbums32  Untitled by tubbums32


More stories to come!
I now get to pack everything I own yet again, and get ready to transport everything back to Hong Kong, where I will hopefully be able to meet up with Iwona again, and maybe ghen1505 too!

Site Update: Add File to My Sta.sh

Thu Sep 19, 2013, 6:06 PM


In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.

What's New


Add File To My Sta.sh

Sharing your image files with friends just got easier! When you link a friend to a file in your Sta.sh, they will see an "Add file to my Sta.sh" button in the right column, so you and your friends can easily collaborate at any time, from anywhere, with the security and privacy provided by Sta.sh.

  • When scrolling in the emoticon sidebar, placeholders did not refresh correctly. Fixed by inazar

Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say:
  • Feedback regarding the update to the deviation page was positive. 
  • A few deviants mentioned that they were having a hard time locating the deviation stats, and that they actually preferred viewing them beneath the deviation itself.
  • Some deviants mentioned that they were encountering internal server and search errors last week. These issues were handled by dt, and thank you for being vigilant in informing us of the issues.

Discuss!

Sta.sh
Since its launch, Sta.sh has been a multi-purpose tool that offers deviants a variety of options when creating, organizing, and submitting artwork. Outside of submission, how do you use Sta.sh? Do you share works in progress with friends and other artists? Do you collaborate with other artists by sharing parts of a larger work?

The Adventures Continue!



Thursday, we left for Hong Kong to have our collective visas converted to work visas. Everything necessary for a two-day venture was packed in just my backpack, and I was fortunately able to leave my bulky gear and luggage at the hotel in Shenzhen! But of course, the visa process marks the return of the infamous Crazy Visa Lady! lol so naturally, we were running everywhere. 

Running to follow Lisa by tubbums32  Crossing the Border by tubbums32


To make things more interesting, 
Since no one had prepared us for needing additional visa pictures, we were ushered to a photo booth in the train station and made to take them there while we were waiting to hop from one train to the next! Never a dull moment with these guys haha

Visapic1 by tubbums32  Visapic2 by tubbums32


When we arrived in HK…
It was evident that we were staying at the same hotel I mentioned previously, although this time I got to share my room with another guy! haha so that was fun… Fortunately I didn't have to spend all of that time crammed into the tiny room because I was rescued by Genett (ghen1505)!

Hong Kong is definitely walking city, no doubt, and it seems like everyone walks everywhere! There is definitely the subway system (MTR), but once you're off of that, you're walking somewhere else haha. Together, Genett and I visited the Temple Street Night Market, and got to sample some pretty kickin' street food, as well as riding one of those double decker buses (my first time!).

Night Market by tubbums32  Fan1 by tubbums32


The following morning,
Predictably, the unexpected happened: we were told yet again, that we needed to have everything packed, out of the room by noon and ready to leave by 2pm. Thing is, they didn't fool me this time! haha I hadn't unpacked a thing :D

So we waited downstairs for Crazy Visa Lady. And we waited… and then waited some more. Keith actually offered to help some guys load some boxes since we were just standing there. And we watched, like all good friends would. Go Keith, go!


Four hours after our scheduled meeting time,
CVL rolls up like nothing's out of place, and she proceeds to inform us that Nuno has to stay in Hong Kong. That wouldn't be too much of an issue if there were any rooms left at the hotel we just left (that's why we had to be cleared out by noon). So Nuno is left in Hong Kong with no bed, no room, no visa, and no passport…cause that's cool…

So we are taken back to the bus station, across the border into mainland China, through immigration, and told that we will fly tomorrow (maybe) to Chengdu, and the time is unsure. Nuno, in turn will remain in Hong Kong and await his visa. 

Off to follow CVL again...
