Don't wanna give you all my pieces

Trends.There are a number of trends I'm amused by at deviantART.Trends.3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Search for draw this again and you see a meme where deviants are showing their progress through the years. Examples:
Then there's a trend on YouTube where deviants are posting video blogs about their deviantART experiences. I recently caught this one by DomieNeek that I was charmed by. She makes great points, too!
In November we published a Journal on dt's Blog, very discreetly announcing that we've launched a set of API's (Application Programming Interfaces) so that developers out there could make Apps for deviantART.

I mean, really? Most popular Youtuber? What the shit is this madness?
In my opinion, there are really only three Let's Play channels worth watching on Youtube --
666theheartless666, Two Best Friends Play, and MoogleFTW.
Not only does he have to shit all over fantastic horror games like Amnesia and Silent Hill, but he also has to go on and ruin amazing games of other genres, too?! Heavy Rain, Bully, Shadow of the Colossus... Shadow of the Colossus is nothing short of art, and that moron has the balls to refer to Agro as "Abro?" GET IT U GUISE, IT'S A CROSS BETWEEN HER REAL NAME AND "BRO" -- ANOTHER NAME FOR HIS FANS. CLEVER, HUH???
And, oh god, I love Bully to death. But now whenever I search for fanart of it, the results are teeming with shitty drawings of PDP in a school uniform calling Gary a "bitch," among other such ~masterpieces~. Hey, I'm not saying I'm a good artist (far from it!) but
dA adds new CSS attributes Skinners! Must read!Okay, as per the latest dA site update found here. CSS coders are now allowed to use 3 more properties to rock their journal skins.dA adds new CSS attributes Skinners! Must read!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The properties are:
Lets see what can we do with these new fancy stuffs!
What does these attributes do?
1) content--> it is used to insert generated content in your HTML (Journal body for DA). Don't worry, don't worry! I'll tell you what is this "generated" content!
2) counter-increment --> it is used to insert numbers (or counters) to sections or sub-sections. I'll explain what "sections" and "sub-sections" are don't worry again!
3) counter-reset --> it is used to reset the counters
All these 3 properties are generally interlinked and are used together. But the "content" property can be used alone and has some cool usage.
help corner: EmoticonsWelcome to the help corner:Emoticons. If you have any questions about anything Emoticon related go ahead and send me a note. Not all questions have to be serious, I am looking forward to all kind of questions ;D The questions will be answered in the next edition of the help corner.help corner: Emoticons4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I had the idea for this News article when I recently went through the Tutorial list of Emotication. I normally send deviants to Emotication when they need help to create Emoticons. Now that I went through the list I noticed that many tutorials aren't helpful at all. It is "just" a list with very good but also very bad tutorials.
In the first edition of the help corner I want to share tutorials with you that I find helpful. These don't necessarily reflect my preferences in the emoticon creation process
Let me first tell you something about different shadings. Every Emoticonist has different preferenc

There's a torrent file available as well.2,400 free high-res NASA images for artists8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm also offering up over 1,250 images of my own personal stock from Australia for super duper cheap at $6 as a way to help me offset the cost of my time in putting together the free resource packs. Check it out if that interests you at all. If not, no worries, but you can enjoy and use these free examples from the Australia pack
Hope you find the downloads useful and get some use out of them, take care!

This week, we're having an art creation contest! While we enjoy having different types of contests, it's always fun to have a good, old-fashioned art contest.
The theme for our art contest will be A Day in Paradise!
What does paradise mean to you? Is it a sandy beach, relaxing with a good book? Or is it cliff diving from a tropical oasis into crystal clear water? Or perhaps paradise is on your couch, playing your favorite video games. Whatever paradise is for you, we want to see it!
And the best part? Any medium is accepted! Feel free to take a photo of your paradise, depict it in a traditional piece, write a story about a trip to your own oasis -- it's up to you!

Here is where you will find the Episode List, Concept Art and all other things regarding Jamie's Epoch.
Jamie's Epoch is a webcomic that will be uploaded chapter by chapter. It in a kind of Beta mode. So if there are any spelling mistakes, cheesy moments or scenes where the angle or hairstyle sticks out like a sore thumb, then let me know. But if it's general stuff like plotholes or that the way the characters are drawn, you can go ahead and let me know, but I won't be able to change those kinds of things.

Follow me, the way they've told you to be seen
Follow me, and we'll meddle with the stars
Can you believe your jumped-up heroes to be thieves?
Still you long to kiss their apathetic hearts
Everything I need is everything that's killing me
And everything I hear is everything that fed to me
Everything I feel is everything I'm told to be
Everything I see is everything I'm led to believe
Follow me as we soar across this wayward sea
Or there you'll stand, divided from the stars
From what I see there's barely a true soul to reap
Deliberate or sleepwalk through reality
Everything I need everything that's killing me
And everything I hear is everything that's fed to me
In everything I feel that everything's a

Hey all, I'm back! >u< Sorry for the 2 months hiatus after my last journal post! That means I was away from dA for almost 3 months..... O___O
To add to my last journal, these 2 months have been really hectic too. It's mostly because of Lunar New Year. It's been 4 years since I spent it with my family, so I had to prioritize them over everything. LOL. It was fun spending all the quality time with not just my family but my friends as well! Some of them whom I haven't seen in years. >A<;;;

This here is mah pimp stickThis is the little corner of dA where I show you who on dA is putting their work out into the professional and semiprofessional publishing world. Each published deviant (or category, as needed) is highlighted with a star. Their accomplishments are listed in black bullet point for easy location. New deviants should appear toward the top of the page, and new listings for deviants already here will appear at the top of their individual lists. All new entries will be tagged with a shiny label for easy location. Having trouble finding one of your favorites? Try Ctrl+F, then type the name of your deviant. Still can't find them?

Take your time, look these over, and if you enjoyed any of this, be kind enough to leave a review on their page. Reviews are one of the things that bring in more readers. Remember, writers need all the support (and traffic) they can get. If you know a deviant who published their work, drop me a link, and I'l

Now the exact requirements for the poetry submissions were never really stated by techgnotic but because of how ambiguous his requirements are I'll give a rough idea of what could possibly be in there for people lost on what to cover.
The prologue poem should contain something that's a type of explanation of possible events that led up to the main story line written by the community. However you interpret the possible events before our official beginning really.

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.
If what you you usually make isn't very Christmasy looking or tasting
