Authentic CitizenshipOnce Again, The Room Fell Away. The prodigious artistic and cultural exchange that we have all committed ourselves to building, to participating in and to sharing with each other every day at deviantART often occurs in RL on the decks of HQ as well. One of the best aspects of being in my position here at deviantART is the privilege to curate salons with artists of every medium and success level imaginable, art appreciators, writers, and educators from all points of light within the deviantART community inviting them to make the trek to HQ for what always manifests as an inspiring, thoughtful, educative, and enlightening dialogue. But sometimes, sometimes, things rise to a whole other level. You suddenly find yourself magically reaching that special deviantART "destination" that is a connection point of art, life, community and communication that has no specific Office # designation.

Earth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural WorldSince human beings harnessed the secret of fire the natural world has been seen by many only in terms of how best it can be exploited of its abundant riches. It’s amazing now to look upon the desert sands of the Arab lands and know that this place, the cradle of earliest civilization, was once known as “The Fertile Crescent.” All Europe was once one great forest – until all those trees were needed to create the naval armadas of dueling empires. Only the Earth’s natural forces, like earthquakes, have been more destructive and wasteful than humanity.Earth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural World in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recent

It was only after many long frustrating hours of trying to describe what’s so special about the photographs of cweeks...
That I finally realized I was trying to describe something that wasn’t there.
I finally realized that the magical something that sets cweeks’ works apart from others is that his camera disappears. There is no sense as you look at his photos of street scenes and other captures that you are looking through a lens, even the lens of a particularly talented photographer. There is a sense of simply walking through a town and seeing what you happen to see – without the

When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"

It's gone though so much sorrow, it would never feel the same,
All the broken pieces keep shattering down loudly,
Because of all this pain.
It feels like no one can heal it, it's broken beyond repair,

That's all it ever wanted but no one would care,
Too bad no one have showed it love from far above.
I can't find a way to help a broken heart, that must mean I'm a failure,
My heart shouldn't feel like this, it feels like it's already dead,
It's unfair for me and my heart to feel this, like I'm some kind of freak,
I need a person who love me instead...

She volunteered to take my mother's place and take care of me. Foolish how everyone in the castle could have thought they could keep that secret from me. I figured out that my parents have been killed when I was a newborn. Something that had to do with a large man in a red suit. I couldn't get answers. I knew Athena wasn't my real mother when I was just 8. Now, I'm 16 & smart enough to never call Athena my mother. She could never take my god damn mother's place.

Blaze landed safely on the ground while Marine was still on her shoulders. I used my powers to let me down gently and slowly. Blaze tugged Marine off her. Marine fell on her back on the floor and smiled like an idiot. Blaze looked around quickly.
"Where are we, exactly?" She asked. I looked over my shoulder and back to her. I shrugged. I had no clue, and I seriously doubt the raccoon had the slightest clue. Marine finally got up and picked up leaves. Blaze and I looked at each other, then to Marine. "What're

Silver and I were walking behind Marine about 8 feet apart. It felt like I was walking a dog. We were walking for about 3 hours. Marine wasn't even close to being tired. I was pretty tired myself, but I had to keep going. Silver looked fine, adding he was using his telekinesis. It was around 1:30 in the morning. I was still soaking wet since the night couldn't dry me. Marine was soaked as well, but that didn't seem to bother her. I barely noticed no one was talking until Silver spoke. "I think we should get some rest, guys. It's almost morning and we haven't slept in a while." "Awww." Marine whined. I nodded and looked for the nearest tree. I walked past Marine and plopped to

I don't remember what happened after Athena shot me with her purple sparks in the back. But it sure hurt a lot.
All I remember was that Silver and I were walking away from Athena to the red suited man's base to clear some unfinished business. I heard rustling behind me; Surely it was Athena. I turned my head halfway to see what had truly caused the noise until I feel a sharp spark in my back. It didn't entirely feel like a spark. It felt like she put some sort of needle in me, THEN sparked me. Explains why I blacked out. I do some crazy uncalled for actions along the way; Here's why:

While the pink female guided us to the underground home, Marine kept whistling.
I was very annoyed, to be honest. I had to play it cool, though; I wouldn't want to have an odd impression to the pink female. Silver just kept walking, staring straight ahead.
After about 15 minutes of non-stop walking, we had finally made it. Silver took an exhale a second after we stopped. I snickered. He noticed and looked away, smiling.
Marine just cheered we made it safely. "Alright, guys! We're here. Now, before we come in-." "I want to come in!" Marine wailed, interrupting the pink object. Marine opened the door that was on the grass floor and jumped in. Amy tried to grab hold of her. "Auh!" Amy whined. Silver was starting to laugh. He laughed some more and covered his face, still laughing. I jogged to the door opening, expecting

After Blaze and I had been sent somewhere else in the world, we freaked out.
We fell in leaves and stood up quickly. "Oh, God. This can't be happening." Blaze exclaimed. I took the leaves out of my ear. "Well, this isn't that bad.." I said, smirking. She pulled the fur on my chest and tugged me closer to her. We locked eyes. "Listen, snowy. I don't know about you, but I'd like it if we get the heck out of here and accomplish my mission." My pupils looks somewhere outer space as my face was narrowed to her. I blushed at the thought of us being face to face. She noticed my blushing and rolled her eyes. She roughly pushed me back and walked some other direction. She was probably thinking I wasn't taking it too seriously. I looked east and scratched

I didn't think Silver would be in on the plan. I thought he would think It was too devious. "I'm in, but that really isn't impressive since you're a princess and all." he said. "Who the hell cares? They can take my name off the list of people who are waiting for the throne, I couldn't care less." I said in a calm tone. "Well, sheesh. Alright." He joked. My plan was simple. We just had to go to the island the red suit guy landed on. (I could count on both on my hands how much I didn't care for his name.) and capture him. Next, I lure Athena into a trap by tricking her into thinking I had a gift for her. They're tied, we ask questions, they answer .. I guess I could murder them If I wanted to. "I should get home and sweet talk Athena." I said, standing up. "Not

Silver held on to my waist. That was what made the juice trigger in my body; That stupid shot Athena had given me.
My pupils turned blue and my body was controlled. I couldn't control myself for about 10 seconds. I felt myself rage and lit fire in my palm. I felt myself staring at Silver, ready to aim. I was about to pinch my neck until I felt ourselves come into the end of the ride and land on sacks of sand. I turned back to normal and shook my head. "What was that?" Silver asked, still holding me. I tried to come up with a lie. "I-I was making light so we could see." I chocked. He shrugged and looked up. I heard buckets from above. I looked up too; The next thing I knew, Silver and I were covered in water.

Blaze and I were running a moment after the scene with this Athena woman. Although, something crossed my mind.
Did she even have a clue where Eggman's base was? I obviously knew I had to ask her. "Uh, Blaze? Do you even know where Eggman's base is?" I asked sheepishly. She immediately stopped, which made me almost bump into her. I backed away a few inches and stood there. She certainly wasn't going to reply. I looked another direction while I scratched my muzzle in awkwardness. She finally took action and looked at me. "I guess I don't." she said while she sweat dropped. "It's a habit I keep moving at all times when i
Jump into a new journal portal!Here's a quick bit of trivia! Did you know that journals comprise about 25% of posts submitted daily? Journals are an integral part of the deviantART experience, and coming soon, they'll receive the spotlight they deserve.Jump into a new journal portal! in Personal More Like This
Introducing the new Journal portal!
A brand new look is coming to the News page.
From the Journal portal, which will be replacing the News page, you'll be able to browse, submit, or search journals and news. You'll be able to browse by Newest, Popular, and Featured (which is comprised of official deviantART news and highlights).
Journals will be visible with their skin, giving you a better context of the post.

Site Update: December 1, 2011About a month ago we announced Sta.sh and Sta.sh Writer -- not as a hot topic, but we soft-launched to the hq membership and to the more savvy deviants who follow along when we release things.Site Update: December 1, 2011 in Personal More Like This
Development of both products has never stopped and will continue in an ongoing manner moving forward.
Below, I've outlined a change log that tracks recent Sta.sh progress and also identified Known Issues that we're aware of and actively working on.
You now have the option to include/exclude your journal from the Journal Portal, and from your Journal Tab's new "Featured" section.
The Journal Portal in the footer of deviantART now pulls from the Journals category but excludes all "Personal" posts. This means, you must categorize your Journal on submission for it to even qualify to appear in the footer of dA. This has substantially increased the quality of posts that appear there.

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem

So I was...... randomly checking DeviantArt today, I browsed through a whole lot of Keyblades.So I was... in Personal More Like This
Then I searched for Oathkeeper (Oath's Charm for everyone wondering how it will be named in my picture) and I realized that many many Artists cut out the Heart which is between the Blade and the Guard+Handle.
Confused about that I was wondering if I made a mistake in my Artwork myself so I switched on my PS3 and put Kingdom Hearts I.5 HD ReMIX on.
After checking my Japanese Save File I somehow wondered, because this not a blank space, it's a small heart, filled white. So why did everyone made this a blank heart???? ?_?
Next to that I found out that my Keyblade Order in my Remix List is a bit off so I rearranged them like in the Game.
Oh well, then I restarted my German I.5 ReMIX to play for real now (after the Release I just started it for like 20 Minutes, saved and never touched it for 5 Months until now) and restarted Final Mix on Proud. Interestingly this is also the same timespan it took me

Due to my Personal luck the Symbol is X aka [chi] which was used by me to identify BBS Final Mix as Icon... now I have to rearrange this...
And I am like yay. :iconfuuuplz: Anyone ideas for a better BBS FM LOGO? XD Any help is appreciated.
today was the Day that I have updated a Keyblade three whole times in total.
Ultima Weapon, Birth by Sleep Version, is the one and only Keyblade which got a normal/Redux and now ReMIX rework.
Maybe you ask yourself why, it was pretty neat last time. Well, I kinda looked over the Real Data of Ultima Weapon and found out that I made several huge mistakes, which didn't found my liking, as well that this Redux was so early when I didn't knew how to work with some effects like Transparency for the Blade itself.

Which Keyblade should be next? ResultsHey guys,Which Keyblade should be next? Results in Personal More Like This
The Result is: Follow the Wind!
First WIP is online on my facebook Page.
Sleeping Lion is finished - so which should be next?
On my facebook Page is a nice picture with all "contestants" who are in line up for a nice redux - choose one and write me, here or in facebook which you want to see next - I will decide this later on!
For clearfication, there are only the following Keyblades which are actually for choosing:
Monochrome, Follow the Wind, Circle of Life, Photon Debugger, Gull Wing, Sweet Memories, Rumbling Rose, Mysterious Abyss, Wishing Lamp
Nothing more, nothing less.
Ahh, now I get it. (KH X Related)So I was like playing KH X recently and discovered some (for me) shocking revealing things about that Bonus System with those Cards.Ahh, now I get it. (KH X Related) in Personal More Like This
I really am stupid sometimes, but NOW I finally found out after getting Lady Luck as a Keyblade:
When you fight Enemies, you use your Deck-Cards, which will be put out Randomly at will.
There are Three Card Types
Those Types only tell you which attack patterns you will use with it, many cards and many random effects.
If you get a Yuna-Card you will get a Thrusting Attack for Example with Aero Element.
A Yuna-Card will give you a certain magic spell, for example Thunder.
So to make things short now:
The first Keyblade Starlight has the Bonus
So if your cards are getting on the place where the Bonus is and has the Color it matches, your Card will get stronger in attack multipled with the Value the Keyblad
Project Hurricane!Project Hurricane! in Personal More Like This
As written in my "Artwork" here again:
I am looking for someone who wants, next to me, think about a "Upgraded" Keyblade for Ventus, based on his original Weapon Fresh Breeze!
The Keyblade Gliders of Aqua and Terra use their Upgraded Keyblades as a model, but Ventus' Keyblade is still the most different to its original Design.
This is not a contest, I actually just do this for fun, there is no loser nor winner, there won't be any judges and so on! And there is especially no time limit!
So if you want to think about a two winged Keyblade in the form of Upgrade to Fresh Breeze, then be my guest and show me your Ideas!
If you have a picture, you can add it in your comment with the +Add Media in the comment bubble!
Any kind of upload is okay~
You can use my Picture as a base of course, feel free to shape something like this, feel free to do your own thing!

If you have the chance to watch it then I can highly recommend it to you
So after that movie I want to make a Project Maleficent, based on THAT Movie - a Keyblade to represent that world.
It will be the same as with Project Hurricane, you can enter and show your best Idea - no judging and no rewards for it.
Actually you who participated made me happy with the results, it made me think about some styles and Ideas I haven't thought of myself.
So I will try to make those Projects Monthly, on a basis that it might work eventually. New month new Project.
The Contest Idea back then was indeed something interesting, but I really don't feel at judging someone elses Art anymore, because everyone does it with full heart, no matter which outcome.
Does that sound like something to try out? I would love to see the results of your ideas!

deviantART was on TV + join the art challenge!A long time ago (about 24 hours), in a galaxy far, far away (down the road in Hollywood), comedian and television host Chris Hardwick introduced a segment on his late-night Comedy Central show — aptly titled @midnight (get it?) — that got many of us at deviantART all aflutter.deviantART was on TV + join the art challenge! in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
First of all, if you love the Internets and you haven't seen @midnight yet, you're missing out on some serious lulz.

Or "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" with slightly less dancing, but an equal amount of thick-rimmed glasses and awkward sexual tension.

I sprang to the Comments to see what was the matter,

I cracked all my knuckles, settled down in my chair,

It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.

* It won't affect the real show
* Let's not prejudge. That's what brony haters do isn't it?
* If you decide not to watch it, fine; but in avoiding it you remove any right you had to discuss it ever.
* If you watch it and hate it, great. So what? The simple solution is to not watch any more because... once again... it's existence doesn't mean anything for the real show.
I think of it as an animated fanfiction... Like friendship is witchcraft. Maybe it will be good. Who knows? But it's certainly nothing to get up in arms about. Save your pitchforks for Season 4 if Derpy is missing.

Thanks the stars, but they're not going to weasel out like most TV shows. They're going to make changes that are permanent and roll with it. YES!
I don't care if it changes the dynamic, Twilight was more powerful and important than her friends from the beginning. In fact, I think it's better writing if they can show that she can still be their friend even if she is a "success" or has responsibility. Kind of like how Rarity should marry Fancy pants and move to Canterlot as a successful designer. I'm sure Rarity would still be their close friend (as it should be).

Audition + Apps: Extension CompromiseFirst of all, thank you to the 22 people who, at the time of writing, have submitted their auditions! You guys are on the ball.Audition + Apps: Extension Compromise in Personal More Like This
Now, thank you also to everyone who answered the poll. Between that and the comments we've been seeing in the community, we have to decided to push back the deadline for accepting applications and auditions. However, in the interests of getting started while everyone's still bubbling over with ideas, we're extending the deadline by half a week. This does not count as one of the three round extensions that will be offered.
The new deadline is JUNE 20th 11:59PM PST. It will not change again.
In order to enter Auroris OCT as a competitor, you must have submitted the following by this time:
the first or 2-3 splash pages OR the first page of a short comic [folder here]a join request to the group with a completed application linked in itWe encourage you to submit as soon as you ar
Character CreationNOTE: We are now only accepting NPCs, who must also follow these guidelines. No more competitor apps will be accepted.Character Creation in Personal More Like This
Human characters only. No anthros, gijinkas or Pokemorphs.
Trainers will have been born and raised on the ship, but if you would like to mention the region their family originated from, keep it within the canon pokemon universe - Kanto, Unova, Orre, etc.
The minimum age for characters is 17. NPC characters any younger may be added to their parent or guardian’s profile. (People could have chosen factions before then, but that's the deadline age.)
Children sharing an app this way may have 1 'pet' pokemon that is a first stage evolution, not a single stage pokemon (like zangoose, seviper, etc.) and no bigger than 2ft.
Psychic gifts, aura powers, and other magical abilities are not allowed.
Unless your character is in the Guardian faction, they cannot carry any sort of weapon. It was a peaceful ship.
No "Team" members;

Competitors: Please re-read the objective, points to remember and judging sections at least. Several things that were ambiguous have been stated explicitly or reworded for clarity. It seems like a lot of points, but most of them are simply the logical following-through of the objective and situation, and so should be easy to abide by. Note that nothing new has been added, so anyone with round plans already should not be tripped up. Apologies for any uncertainty! This is the final version of the requirements you must follow to be graded. Minor deviations will lose you points and major ones will disqualify your entry.
NPCs: Please re-read the part after Roy and Kieran's conversation. As with the competitors, important clarifications have been made.
Everyone: The group has decided on an Extension for this Round, so the new deadline for competitors for round one is SUNDAY AUGUST 3rd at 11:59PM. NPCs can expect to have at least a week after
R2: SaboteurR2: Saboteur in Personal More Like This
In this round, groups are sent out to retrieve supplies - medical supplies, in particular. Groups may scavenge upward from the Upper Atrium as far as they please, or to the middle level, as in the last round, for food, technology, building materials, etc. However, if you are scavenging for human medical items, you will need to head to the Belt, which contains sick bay (the Auroris equivalent of a small hospital). Roy and Kieran will be leading the main scavenging group to sickbay.
This is no simple in-and-out gathering mission, however. The colonists' activities in the last round drew the attention of a number of deoxys who lurked in the shadowed outskirts of the atrium to observe. They are not pleased that the humans are attempting to creep lower into the ship's bowels - in fact, any human below the Upper Atrium will most likely be attacked by deoxys as the alien pokemon try to herd them back up and away f

The Auroris' dream of colonizing a new planet is a lie. The so-called colonists have found out that they and their ancestors were little more than labrats in a generations-long experiment to enhance humans with pokemon DNA so they can survive the terrible surface conditions of Earth. The deoxys' presence is an accident, but not the kind the crew believed; the ship has been harvesting their DNA from dormant specimens in asteroids for centuries, only this time they weren't so dormant. Our remaining crew members find themselves on a ship that threatens to put them under the scalpel, faced with deoxys out for revenge, and something in the bottom levels is awakening.
COMPETITORS: Deal with the threats. In the interests of open-ended creative freedom, this is literally all we require. Will your character destroy Ark and take their chances piloting the ship to a new planet, or back to Earth, on manual? Will they try to reason with him, or res
