Two years ago, deviantART embarked on the beginning of a long process of applying to manage .ART, a new top-level domain that we believe belongs to the art community as a whole.
While the application process is still ongoing, we are committed to the .ART domain being one for artists, by artists. We have partnered with e-flux to take a stand for the future of art online — and we need your help to do so.

Miincdesign's June Feature Hi! Welcome to Miincdesign's June article/featureMiincdesign's June Feature3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have been doing something just a little different in my monthly features. I am looking for new blooming fractal artists. They must be part of Fractal-Love and been a member of DA for less than a year.
Basically, during my features, I will introduce you to an new artist, feature some of my favorite works from this past week, and include our most recent donors.
:iconspreadmorelovePLZ: Let me introduce you to loloalien:iconspreadmorelovePLZ:
loloalien is from the United States, and has been a member for six months. He tends to dabble mostly in Incendia. Visit his gallery and give him some Fractal-Love.
Here are some
I'm almost there For those of you who might not know, but I am currently closing a chapter to my book of life. For the last 23 years of my life, I have served proudly and honorably in the United States Army. I am a nurse, and I have not deployed, but instead I worked in the Army's world famous Burn Unit in San Antonio, TX for six years. I have been here at Fort Bragg for the last 4 years. I am a single parent, and have been since I divorced my son's father in 1995. I felt being in the Army was a more honorable way to raise my son, instead of being on welfare.I'm almost there5 months ago in Personal More Like This
With all that being said, this week is my retirement ceremony and party. My parents and brother are traveling 1000's of miles to be a part of this. I have been very busy cleaning my house, and getting prepared for these two events. They are staying in a hotel nearby, but we will be spending much time here. I am not sure how often I will be able to sign
I am back...thank goodnessHello my friends, I am back here at lastI am back...thank goodness5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm pleased to say I'm over the rotten depression I had, and I've sorted out many real-life things, some of which made me angry. I don't like getting angry, it makes me feel ill, as I'm a very easy going and placid person. I won't bore you with details, but I hope this sort of rubbish doesn't happen again any time soon
Onto happier stuff, my pond is more or less finished, I've put in a few rockery plants plus a couple of water plants too.
But BEST of all, I now have frogs-spawn
Here's hoping for lots of fabulous froggies in the near future
Also, the lovely man who gave me the pond lining, along with his wife, bought me 3 beautiful baby goldfish as a present for my birthday, wasn't that wonderful of them
I can't begin to tell you how much pleasure my pond is giving me, I can't stop going out in my garden and just staring at it haha. I can't believe I've actually

1 Year Deviant Art AnniversaryGreetings to all my Friends,1 Year Deviant Art Anniversary6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I logged in this morning and after a few minutes I got a pop up letting me know it is my 1 year anniversary!
Wow to think it has been a year already, I am amazed at how fast time seems to pass.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here thus far and I am thinking of the times to come.
I have grown and learned so much in my Art , and have many wonderful Friends and Mentors who have helped me on this journey.
That to me is the best aspect of all this, the People I have come to know and call Friends.
It is an odd thing to make a friend online and become so close without even meeting them in person, but I am here to say it happens and I am glad for it.
I would like to thank those who have supported me and shared knowledge with me as well.
When I first began I was doing PS digital compositions and then I saw my first Fractal composition an

Introducing thoughtART Technology
A few years ago, deviantART teamed up with several university laboratories across the United States, and we are proud to finally announce the fruits of our efforts. Thanks to recent advancements in neurological science, we're unveiling a revolutionary new platform in artistic creation. Our device uses touch-sensitive pads built into your existing keyboard and mouse to monitor your brainwaves and transmit them directly to our site. Excited? Welcome to the new age of thoughtART Technology!

One Question, a True StoryI knew a friend who knew the father of this young girl so listen up all ye who have heart.One Question, a True Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
A young girl, about the age of seven waited for her father to come home from work. It was already past 11:20. When her father came she asked him,
"Daddy how much do you earn an hour?"
Her father replied wearily, " Dear why would you care?" and went up to his bed and fell asleep. The next day she waited again till her father came back and questioned,"Daddy, how much do you earn an hour?"
Her father replied," Dear it is none of your business." and left to bed. The next day the she waited again and again she asked him, getting the same reply.
This continued for a week, until the father finally replied angrily, "FINE! I EARN 30 DOLLARS AN HOUR!! ARE YOU HAPPY?!?!"
The daughter then asked him,"Will you give me 15 dollars?"
Her father then gave her 15 dollars, confused. Then the girl went to her room and brought out 15 dollars from under her mattress and asked, "Daddy will you spend an hour with me?"

Fractorium - OpenCL GPU Based Fractal GeneratorOk ladies and gentlemen, I don't know how many of you have head about Fractorium but it's a OpenCL GPU Based Fractal Generator that allows you to create fractals in real time. Most of you know that I use Fractron 9000 because it's super fast; but Fractorium leaves it in the dust, that's how fast this fractal generator is.Fractorium - OpenCL GPU Based Fractal Generator3 months ago in Personal More Like This
It supports a user interface that many of you are use to, as many of you have used Apophysis for your fractal generation. It supports over hundred functions, a color palette similar to APO, mouse and manual control of numerical adjustments as well as the clickable adjustment your familiar with.
If you've been held back on exploring fractals before due to the slow speed of the CPU, that time has now passed.
Fractorium works under 64bit Windows and with an graphics card that supports OpenCL; which means most any of the graphics cards produce over the past 4 years.
Give it a try and let Matt know what you think of his creation.
I know I'll be switching over n

DeviantART Deleting AccountsThere appears to be a new rumour flying around in various journals and comments that deviantART will be deleting accounts. The information seems to be spreading using messaging similar to what is here:DeviantART Deleting Accounts5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
On 21 of may, deviantart will be deleting all accounts. Not plz accounts. accounts , But just all name-wasted accounts, or accounts that we think are fake, or that are useless. We are doing this to prevent something that could possibly may happen in the future. If we find this message on your deviantID, journal, etc. We will know that your not fake.
Thank you for listening
First, allow me to reiterate that there is no truth to this. DeviantART would never convey information this way and official information is always posted through hq
If you are being spammed with false information, feel free to hide and block the user and report them to the Help Desk.
So what will happen on May 21st? Happy you asked!
Happiness and Progress!Good evening Deviants ~Happiness and Progress!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
The past few months have been absolutely crazy with my final university interviews, mock exams, coursework...bleh. BUT the best thing ever also happened that I got an UNCONDITIONAL offer (meaning no matter what grades I get this year I will still have a place at the uni even if I fail) from my #1 uni! I have accepted the offer and means I will go to Norwich University of the Arts to study Games Art & Design this September and I am super duper excited. I was honestly so shocked but also means a lot of pressure has been lifted off my shoulders about my exams. I'm still going to do my best to try and achieve A A A* but still nice to know I've secured my place!
In artsy news I haven't done a lot because of all of my interviews and school stuff but hopefully I can slowly start to pick up how many pieces I do now that I have started my A2 Fine Art exam project (2nd and biggest project of the course). I can't promise frequent uploads but I will do the best I can! B
