Most Popular CharactersThe Most Popular Characters at DeviantART
Have you ever wondered who the most popular characters are at DeviantART?
I liked danlev's recent post on Trending deviantART Search Terms in October. It got me thinking about popular characters on DeviantART in terms of deviation count. I'm going to need some help with this research project.
Help Wanted, Reward Offered
Search for a character and submit the number of deviations found. You can post a screenshot or just put the number in a comment. Find a Top-10 character and get 100 points. Find a Top-50 character and get 10 points. Each person that faves this journal will get 1 point. If multiple people submit the same character, the first person gets the points.

3 Cool Tips and Tricks3 Cool Tips and Tricks3 Cool Tips and Tricks2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
@ Deviant Links
@ Deviant Links
When you want to link to another deviant, the old method described in FAQ #81 is to use the code :devdeviant:. DeviantART quietly rolled out a new twitter-style deviant linking method: just put the @ symbol before the deviant name and you've got a snazzy link. Awesome! Know it. Use it. elee0228 compels you. See? I just used it right there.
Combined with the totally awesome new mention feature (beta), it's going to really encourage interaction on the site. It looks like right now that it just searches for the @ symbol anywhere, so words that use @ in the middle, like idolmaster, get screwed up. E-mail addresses work ok though.

Even though you might not receive that special card or love letter, it's still nice to know people care about you. And it's still nice to let other people know you care about them. And what's better than to use DeviantArt's mention function to let them know you care about them or admire them? Let's spread the happiness!
Tag the people that you admire
I will give away 300 points to people that comment here, to 3 people. 100 points per person.
You'll build lottery points for every person that you tag. The more, the better!
Here are my tags:
The many people that are either my real life friends, or the people that I came to know over the internet (Deviantart & forums) over the years.
Either way, thanks for your continuous support!

The whole "fave the journal"-rule was a scientific experiment. Getting this extra-attention is nice, of course, but I think I'll keep these lotteries small and personal in the future. I don't, understandably, want someone to come in just for the lottery and free art potentiality. But we'll see...

Why now? Well... I’ve just come back from Lucca Comics & Games - the best and biggest comics, games and cosplay fair we have in Italy. It reminds me when I was there last year and I had a bad car accident on my way back home. I don’t know how to describe it correctly in english.. my car got hit by a very big jeep from behind, the thrust was so intense it made my car tip over and land on the car in front of me, then rebounded several times on the road crashing sides of the car and the roof of my (at this point destroyed) vehicle. Fortunately I didn’t get any serious injuries, but I had to rest in bed for one month and for four months I have been away from fairs and events …

10 ways to become more productiveDear, deviantart fellow artists10 ways to become more productive1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It's difficult to feel motivated and stay focused on our goals all the time. But how to achieve what we want, how to not let procrastination stand in our way?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Set goals
Think about your ultimate goal - what is that matters to you the most, what would make you incredibly happy and excited. Write that down and work your way through to it. It will be the reason, the reminder for you to look forward in those times, when you'll feel less motivated.
Try to write also weekly, monthly and yearly goals - be reasonable and realistic regarding that, but don't be afraid of challenges. They have to be S.M.A.R.T. - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.
2. Plan tasks in previous day
Make a l
'Just be yourself'As a kid I had problems grasping the meaning of "be yourself". Whenever I asked what it meant, the replies were hardly satisfying. Mostly, I was told NOT to be the way I thought of as ok but to be like the kid next door, because he was so well behaved. Or someone famous, someone rich, because they were successful and the more successful you are, the better.'Just be yourself'2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But even at a very young age I already noticed the contradiction here: how was I supposed to be myself if I was copying someone else? This seemed off.
In the end it wasn't a human who was able to explain the concept of "be yourself" to me.
It was a video game.
With a blue hedgehog.
The first thing I noticed about the game was how happy he looked. He was clearly doing the one thing he loved to do, the one thing he did best. And he made a dent with it.
I was impressed.
And then I was hooked.
And by the time we had traveled through three games, I was certain that I had understood the whole "be yourself" thing. And I adored him for it.

What Am I Talking About?
What is the difference between an embedded deviation and a deviant thumb? Glad you asked. The thumbs have the codes everyone already knows and loves. And if you don't know what I'm on about, then look on the sidebar of your deviation and you will find your thumbcode. These codes can be used in journals, widgets and artist descriptions to link a thumbnail of the deviation.
