Collection: Each Chapter's End

Context is everything. The same photographs and paintings of airport terminals and train compartments and subway platforms that seem so cold and forbidding in contemplation of one’s traveling out into the world, somehow become reassuring in their hard functionality and durability – when thought of as the pathway to the journey back home. Faces of travelers photographed in airports often exhibit muted “Mona Lisa smiles,” masking the direction (to or away from home) that they are headed.

The editors of depthRADIUS would like to encourage you to visit the DA destinations of alltheoriginalnames, Creationarium, and Realm-of-Fantasy for further mind expansion.








Superhuman


so͞opərˈ(h)yo͞omə

adjective


A human with extraordinary capabilities that far exceed that of an ordinary human.







Many of us gotten our first ideas about Superhumans from Comics.




Throughout the years so many unique and interesting characters, and many alternate realities and universes have been created in graphic novels and comic books. Many iconic superheroes and villains are known today throughout the world.






The superhuman superheroes leapt from comics to anime, cartoons and live action Hollywood blockbuster movies. Youthful audiences thrilled to the experience of enjoying their comic heroes on screen, as films such as Superman and Batman were joined by The Crow, Spawn, Watchmen, Constantine, Sin City, Hellboy, The Dark Knight, Man of Steel, X–Men and Avengers.


So what is it to be a Superhuman? And is it possible that they exist today?







From as far back as at least 7,000 years ago,


…Civilizations in Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, China and Greece told tales of beings with powers and abilities capable of extraordinary feats.


Are these legends the original inspiration for our modern day Superheroes?












Japan speaks of legends of Shinobi (Ninja)






…Capable of feats of amazing agility, stealth, and evasion. Unseen assassins and masters of espionage, the Ninja and their amazing abilities have reached mythical proportions. Legends and folklore speak of feats such as invisibility, the ability to run on water, scale walls, shape–shift and even fly.


Did the Shinobi simply excel at training and the art of deception, or was it something more?












From seers such as Nostradamus to mystics


…Like Rasputin to illusionists like Harry Houdini, history has abounded with tales of humans who could tap into astounding powers and abilities. Were these men practitioners of genuine precognition, premonitions and magic?


Or were they masters of manipulation, misdirection, and illusion?







There are claims that people have the ability to access and use more of their brain, unlocking Psionic abilities (e.g., telepathy, telekinesis, pyrokinesis, levitation, etc.)






In Star Wars, both Jedi and Sith are able to feel and use the power of the Force.


This Force is accessed through harnessing the power of midi–chlorians, microscopic bio–organic symbiotic entities that reside in the cells of all living things. This “midi–chlorian” is actually based loosely on the very real mitochondria, a cellular power plant found in the cells of almost all known life forms.


Mitochondria even have a genome independent of the host cell’s DNA. They control a cell’s life cycle, from growth to death, and contain a vast amount of energy. What if we could tap into the power of the human mitochondrial genome?


Could we unlock unknown true potential powers?









Some believe that Homo Sapiens are at the next step in our evolution.


Is already upon us. Do we possess a mutant gene that is responsible for our next step?


In the Marvel Universe there is the X–Gene, and those with this gene start exhibiting enhanced and extraordinary powers and abilities by adolescence.


Many characters in the Marvel Universe believe this is the next step in human evolution, thus being categorized as Homo Supremus rather than Homo Sapiens.


What if Homo Sapiens are actually evolving in to Homo Supremus?








Now that we have broken the DNA code, we can now begin to alter it.





Genetic manipulation is now common practice, within reason. From livestock, to fish, to insects, to crops all altered for various reasons. Sheep have been cloned, mammals and reptiles DNA code spliced and altered. They have even created a glow in the Dark Rabbit by Splicing its DNA with that of a Jelly Fish, thereby adopting bioluminescent qualities.


What if genome research lead to genetic manipulation with humans?


In Comic Books Peter Parker was bit by a radioactive genetically enhanced spider, thus adopting certain Spider attributes and becoming Spiderman.





Splinter and 4 turtles come into contact with a man made green ooze (Mutagen), subsequently changing their DNA into Anthropomorphic Superhumans and becoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The film “Splice” follows the story of Dren, of whom is a genetically engineered human–animal hybrid. While this may all seem like fiction, reality may not be far off.


Science is reaching a point where in the near future we will be able to alter the DNA of humans. Through the technique known as Crispr, this gene editing allows detailed and specific alterations to any part of 23 pairs of human chromosomes in DNA.


This could have health benefits, curing certain disabilities, handicaps and illnesses. Eventually this technique might be able to target specific genes, and thereby customize humans entirely. From the pigment of our skin, eyes and hair, to even possibly targeting codes responsible for genetic traits such as being artistic, having a higher I.Q., or even strength, speed and agility.


Movies such as “Universal Solder”, and Video games like “Metal Gear” explore the subject of Genome Soldiers, their enhanced abilities and the consequences of genetic manipulation.


Will we manipulate and dictate our own evolutionary path?


Will superhumans actually be created through genetic manipulation?






Science and technology have allowed us to do some incredible things in the age of computers and the internet.





From access to vast amounts of knowledge at ones fingertips, and to communicate with people across the globe, and create 3D models and blueprints that have real world applications. Video Games allow us to become someone different with incredible abilities, and experience an alternate virtual world.


In “The Matrix” trilogy of films, people jack into the matrix, a virtual world reflecting the 21st century, and are able to do incredible feats that physical limitations in the real world would not allow. These characters essentially become superhumans through a virtual matrix mainframe construct.



In the movie “Tron,” The Master Control Program, an Artificial Intelligence that becomes self–aware, traps Kevin Flynn in the ENCOM mainframe. He must then fight programs that represent their creators in a virtual digital world. Because he is a “user” from the real world, he can manipulate reality in this digital existence in a way no program can.


Will computers, video games and the internet be the next step in humanity’s evolution to becoming Superhuman?






Technology may create the next superhumans through real life applications.





Engineering and Technological advancements are being made every day. Artificial organs such as a Total Artificial Heart, and Prosthetics such as the Spring Foot are now common place. Animatronics are advancing everyday, creating more and more lifelike artificial robots—machines with human–like appendages that are stronger and faster than their human counterparts. A combination of these two concepts as Cybernetics could be the next step.


Being able to replace failing organs and lost limbs with cybernetic upgrades that improve performance, strength and speed. Our video games could be windows into a quickly approaching new human existence. Genetic and cybernetic enhancement of the abilities of characters like Raiden and Grey Fox in “Metal Gear” are presently far beyond human capabilities. But the horizon is ablaze with evolving possibilities. Exo–suits will be capable of enhancing our abilities far beyond what is now capable of flesh alone. There might be cybernetic surgically installed exo–skeleton suits (like Max’s in the film “Elysium”). There might be powered suits worn by the likes of the bounty hunter Samus in “Metroid”, or the Spartan Master Chief John–117 in “Halo”, or Tony Stark’s “Ironman” creation.








Are Super Humans already amongst us?


Ordinary people are capable of amazing feats of strength, reaction and speed when in fear for their life or the lives of others.





Fear stimulates the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus sends out a chemical signal to your adrenal glands, which releases adrenaline and noradrenaline hormones. This allows us to think quicker and react faster, while enhancing physical strength and endurance, and even dulling sensitivity to pain. Our heart rate increases, our pupils dilate, our respiration increases, pumping more oxygen to our muscles, shaking with the surge of Adrenaline.


Fire fighters, soldiers, parents and even children have performed incredible superhuman feats during life–threatening situations.


Does Fear Make us Super Human?


Trained Olympic Athletes are breaking more records now than ever before.


Usain Bolt with blinding speed in the 100m and 200m events, winning 6 golds in 2 Olympics. Michael Phelps winning 8 Gold Medals in one year, and 22 Medals over the course of 3 Olympics. Was this due to hard work, dedication, physical conditioning, training and technique?  Or are these athletes, and many like them, actually superhuman?





Why does the idea of “superhuman” fascinate? As children we daydreamed of teleportation, of flying, of lifting incredibly heavy objects (perhaps only with our minds), of reading others’ thoughts or seeing into the future, being invisible and, of course, living forever. Is it simply our desire to be “more?” Or is it the freedom of being able to do anything, without limitations?


Or is it the duality of Superheroes that attracts us? Does it speak to our desire to create an alter ego in order to protect ourselves and our loved ones. Does it speak to that part of us, our true self, that we must keep secret so that other people may not judge or fear what they do not understand about us?


Do we love our superheroes because they are so different than us, or do we relate to them because we are so very much alike?









Your Thoughts






  1. If superhumans were discovered to exist, would they be honored as the next generation of our evolutionary heritage, or hunted and killed and captured as an alien threat?

  2. You’ve had a lifetime since childhood to decide, so here’s the question: What is the ONE super–power you would choose to possess (and why)?

  3. Will there always be a separation between A.I. androids and humans, even if it’s virtually impossible to distinguish between without an autopsy? Could androids supersede humans as the next evolution of humanity? Or, just the opposite, if androids are forever officially designated as machines, will they be abused in “slavery” scenarios?

  4. Are all–powerful ever–vigilantly protecting superheroes simply the fantasies of powerless common citizens despairing of ever finding peace or justice in our dysfunctional system of laws, cops and courts?

  5. Are superheroes simply the expression of our in–born instinct to strive to be the most we can be, mentally and physically?

Dear all Bronies who watch me...

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 4, 2013, 8:22 PM


I'm a Brony.

Once upon a time that meant something.

That meant that while some people looked at me strange, others looked at me with respect. Because I belonged to a group of people who care, who are kind, who do what they can to help the world, or even their small little community.

Now...

Now I have to sit down with them and explain.

"No, we're not all like that."

"I don't honestly understand why they act like little brats."

"I'm not that weird, I just like the show."

"Yes... yes, sometimes I am ashamed..."

Because have you seen what we've turned into? A group of little brats who do nothing but whine when they don't get their way! Who yell at the writers for doing things they don't automatically approve of, even though they've made it this far into the series and still have the group going strong!

We get pissed, and annoyed, and act like what we say matters when we complain.

Our actions used to be what mattered, our hearts used to be what mattered.

Not getting a shout-out from the writers...

Sure, we have our factions. But have the cloppers ever hurt anyone? Have they ever complained? Have they ever actually done any damage?

Maybe.

But not nearly as much as the majority of the "bronies" have.

Maybe we should give things a chance before we start complaining about them. Maybe we should show what the magic of friendship really mean. Maybe we should get off our lazy asses and make sure people stop judging us based on what show we like! Shouldn't we make that documentary true?!

The Universes


- Marshmallow Fluff - Black Beauty - Groomed Flame - Rose White - Rose Pink - Gold Ginger Apple -

This is a non-canon universe. Set in Ponyville, Marshmallow Fluff works for Black Beauty in a small bakery, said to rival even Sugarcube Corner. Black Beauty and Groomed Flame are a couple, meaning they are together. Rose White and Rose Pink are Marshmallow Fluff's foals, while Gold Ginger Apple is the foal of Big Mac and Caramel. All the events in the canon universe have and are happening, the only real different being the added characters.


- Gabriel - Crisp - Shaman - Seaweed Cyanide -

Please look at mechafone's writings to learn more about the universe of these characters. A brief description of each of them: Gabriel is a pirate on a ship, who's sexuality just is. He is going to end up with Mecha's character Russet Heart. Crisp and Shaman live in the snowy mountains, Crisp belongs to a group of mountain ponies, why Shaman belongs to one of the Leopard Tribes. Not much is known of their home yet, since their arc of the story has not occurred yet. Seaweed Cyanide is a villain out to kill the heroes and is under the orders of Mecha's character Lusus.


- Golden Crocus - Emaline - Marcus -

This is a non-canon version of Canterlot. As the first universe, all the canon events have happened, the only difference being the characters. Golden Crocus is a duke, who lives in a large manor. He takes care of a garden containing every plant imaginable, and is helped with his tasks by Emaline. Emaline is a young mare with a hopeless crush on Golden Crocus, and helps him take care of his plants and the animals who flock to him. Golden Crocus is in a relationship with Prince Blueblood. Marcus is a Royal Guard of Celestia, who is together with a stallion named Dom.
Hint: Dom has not yet been created.


-Crystal Angel-

This is a non-canon version of the Crystal Empire. This universe is 1000+ years in the past, before King Sombra lost his mind and began enslaving the citizens of the Empire. Crystal Angel is the youngest son of the overthrown ruler, who was a tyrant and left Crystal behind when he fled with the rest of his children. Crystal was then raised by Sombra and the kind ponies who worked in the castle. With age, Crystal fell in love with Sombra, and the two are together.
Hint: Crystal has two sisters and three brother who have not been created

Some news + Great TBP fan art

Wed Feb 13, 2013, 12:08 PM by toad1:icontoad1:
A new interview about the Killjoys comic, with some more art: www.comicbookresources.com/?pa… That art is incredible, wow. Love the Dr. D one. (Hope Show Pony will be in it, too.)

And Frank is apparently part of a new band with James Dewees called DEATHSPELLS: mychemicalcollective.tumblr.co…

Also, yesterday I stumbled on some incredible TBP art that I'd never seen before. No idea how I missed it. Idk if the artists are even still on DA, but enjoy:

Gerard just posted a very long tweet: www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1rjd…

The explanation is kind of of vague, but he makes two things clear: the band didn't end due to scandal or argument, and MCR is indeed done. So whether the fan theories about legal issues are true or not, the break-up is permanent, and it wasn't quite as abrupt as it seemed.

As incredibly disappointing as this is, I'm glad he said this early on so we can stop pondering over theories and start to move on with our lives. While I thought the theories were interesting, I worried that they brought false hope and dragged this on longer than necessary. Now we finally have to put MCR to rest.

But even though MCR is over, the guys' stories certainly aren't. I just hope they find happiness in whatever they do.

Son of a BITCH! SONY PUSSED OUT ON US!!!

www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-ca…

For f**k’s sake. Terrorists are not under your bed. They are not hiding around every corner. They are not in the seat next to you. The few that are out there only win if you start to think they might be.
In 2005, a gaggle of weak-minded twits blew themselves up on the London Underground. I and 1.2 BILLION other passengers per year still use it. Could another attack happen? Of course. But so could fire, flood, collapse or accident. You could get hit by a bus as you exit the station! There are a thousand-and-one terrible things that could happen to you today and, I assure you, unless you live in some third world sh*thole, the odds of a random yahoo causing you physical harm for political or religious reason is one of the least likely to occur.

By watching The Interview in theatres, you would have been more likely to choke on a popcorn kernel than get caught up in any kind of threatened reprisal.

F**k you Sony. I’m buying an Xbox…….

A while back, just after I had completed whichever iteration of Assassin’s Creed involved the pirate guy, I said that Watchdogs was probably going to be a crap game. A number of people said I was wrong to badmouth a game without playing it, but my argument was that you could gauge the quality of an upcoming title by the studio/publisher’s previous output. With that in mind, it’s fairly obvious that Ubisoft’s preferred method is to dazzle the weaker minded with pretty, pretty graphics in order to sell as many copies as possible before someone points out that the game actually plays like a dog (which – what ho - is exactly what Watchdogs did).

Ass Creed: Unity hit the headlines because of it doesn’t just play bad, it’s flat out broken.

www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-…

I’ll repeat what I said in the journal with the Watchdogs prediction: look at the back catalogue of a studio before spending money on their products. If that back catalogue is nothing but a brown, faecal smear, don’t buy them! It doesn’t matter if it looks like the greatest thing ever, it most likely won’t be. Or worse, it’ll be as shoddy as a Ass Creed: Unity.
As with Michael Bay films, I swore never to waste any more of my precious time on Ubisoft games. There’s just better things to play than the likes of clunky Ass Creeds or hateful Far Crys.


One of Ass Creed: Unity's many glitches.....or proof that Ubisoft is run by those aliens from They Live.

I’ve harped on about this before and I’m going to do it again…..and again and again…..until people stop doing it.

I do not fave pictures that have watermarks right across them.

This isn’t me being monumentally arrogant and thinking that I alone faving a piece of work bestows upon it some kind of greatness. This is just me having an artistic eye.
If you’ve slaved to create the most astounding piece of work to have ever graced the galleries of deviantart, something that puts all your peers to shame and will remain a benchmark that others aim to match for years to come…..and then across the middle of it you decide to slap a watermark that you spent 5 minutes farting out: you just f**ked up your artwork. You have added something that detracts from my enjoyment of the piece and I’m not going to fave it.

There are a number of brilliant artists out there who I’m on the verge of unfollowing, simply because it irks me so much to see a tacky watermark (or worse, the default DA skidmark) ruining what would otherwise be a beautiful image.

And that small glimpse of light was brought to us today by a follower by the name of :iconfiercewendigo:

His generous donation helped me reach the ammount needed to find a decent replacement for my dead PC, so everyone... A BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR HIM!!!

A Mournful Goodbye

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 29, 2013, 12:24 PM
Well, there's no use... My PC died a painful death.

Yesterday I brought it home from spending one week at the technic, powered it on and it worked fine, so I was all pumped to start working again... and today, I switched it on again and *poof*, black smoke everywhere. The video card and the hard drive were the only salvagable components left. Everything else (powersource, motherboard, microprocessor and RAM) was turned into a crisp...

A moment of silence for our beloved friend, who helped me bring all of you those little moments of joy.


You'll be missed, my old friend... you'll be missed...

Fate out...

P.s.: Since I have to buy a new PC, it will take some time to get back on my feet... two weeks or so, probably. However, the commission slots already reserved will retain their orders, so those of you who already commissioned, don't worry. You'll just have to wait a tad longer than expected, but I will tackle your requests when I manage to get a new system to work with... Saraba!

so.
here i am again, in the library kind of bored. how about a story or a life update?
maybe some research on that creative writing class im going to take at CCV this summer. Well anyway, im going to prolly take a college english class this summer or next summer, so that i can get the english credit that im missing. we ned 4 english to graduate, like normal people, and i missed the first semester of school, so Ellen said i should do that... so thats the plan...
Oh and I saw Ellen yesterday, and i have to say um... there wasn't much focus on me, so nothing too horrible happened. but i wasn't in school yesterday... but um, yesterday i had a breakdown, in the morning because of an emotion overflow and juts not being able to handle it anymore. but anyway, i'm fine now.
I've also been seeing the horses when im on the bus in the morning, which is really good.
I haven't really been working on any art lately, which is really sad. i mean, i did 'the end', but other than that i've done nothing o-o i know i really need to do something. so srsly, at this point, send me ideas and shit, muSIC EVEN, but just keep in mind with that that i cant stand country music or pop music xD
i've also been thinking about writing something, i mean i know i'm going to be writing something for humanities, like a fictional short story that takes place in the civil war time period thing... anyway, im thinking maybe like a widow's life? or and escaped slave's life? ugh. we haven't gotten the assignment yet but im thinking about it anyway.
And some upcoming stuff is that i probably won't be on much tonight, i have to finish a book and write a book report o-o i know i should probably be reading now, but this is the only time i have to talk to Nick and Andrew... Also, Friday, i won't be around until late, because i'm going to D&D, and we're going to have a mini party there ^.^ with cake and everythinggg :3
I'm exited for the cake so i unno.
anyway, my phone turned off last night too o-e i might turn it on again after my birthday, assuming i get lots of monayy, because my first priority is a MCR shirt, and then some wrist bands nn stuff :3 i know i deffo want something for Avenged, but HU is my life.... I also need to set monay aside to but the new BMTH album, because it's amazing :iconcannotevenplz: but everything is workable i think and um whats the word im actually looking for um.... fLEXABLE. FLEXABLE. THATS THE WORD I WAS LOOKING FOR. WOW GO LIZZ.
anyway yeah.
this is really long omfg o-o
but gold star for you if you actually got this far :icongoldstarplz:
so yeah.

Hi guys ^^;

I'm sorry that I'm rarely uploading or drawing.I've just been busy and all that jazz.Also that my birthday is Wednesday xD I'm getting old,shut up.

I'm gonna be busy because I have family and school to take care of.Also that I have to study because I have exams coming and I wanna pass. OTL

And that drawing just isn't in my schedule anymore :/ I'll try to get back into soon.I hope.

It's also weird that I feel like I'm being ignored by everyone ._. So I guess people won't really care about this update.I don't know why,but I think my watchers,you guys,really don't care about me anymore since I'm slowing down and busy as fuck. :iconmiseryplz:

DeviantART announced a month ago that through a new organization, Dadotart we applied to manage a new Top Level Domain (TLD) called “.ART.” We are committed to having the .ART TLD — the Internet addresses that could end in .ART — organized and distributed with the full participation of the global art community.


We need your help!


We need your help to show public support for the Dadotart application. The application process to manage a TLD is long, arduous, and intricate. Help us gather as a true art-centric community. And please spread the word to everyone who loves the arts or is part of the arts because we aim to have .ART be home to everyone in every one of the arts.









Every voice counts!


There are a number of ways for you to support the Dadotart campaign.





1. Write a Comment


Write a comment about your support of Dadotart’s application in this journal and we will pass your comment on to ICANN. Tell them how a .ART TLD might serve you as an artist or art lover.






2. Spread the Word


Tell others! Help us spread the word by posting a Journal, updating your Facebook status, tweeting, or using any other means of social media to get others to join in. People who are not members of deviantART can e-mail messages of  support to: art@dadotart.com.







3. Go Above and Beyond


We also urge you to post a message of support to ICANN’s “Submit an Application Comment” page. This process isn’t for the faint of heart and takes a few minutes longer as it requires you to create an account and verify an e-mail address. Still, if you do this, you are assuring ICANN that you are an impassioned and vocal supporter of the arts community and of Dadotart’s application.


Click here for step-by-step instructions on how to post a message to ICANN.






Well-formulated, respectful, and intelligent comments will be the best approach to showing ICANN and the world why Dadotart, Inc. will be the best manager of the .ART TLD.






Thank You!


A landslide starts with a single pebble. This is a worldwide effort at every level — from a single artist to a small group of craftspeople to an international association of museum directors. The support of one is the support of all. But hurry! This is a time-sensitive effort. All comments must be submitted by August 13th, 2012 to be eligible. Help us gather as a true art-centric community. And please spread the word to everyone who loves the arts or is part of the arts because
we aim to have .ART be home to everyone in every one of the arts.


Please note this doesn't mean that deviantART.com would change to deviantART.art (or deviant.art). The .ART TLD would service all of the arts, including art forms that deviantART doesn't handle -- like the theater, music, dance, and so on -- and would allow people to have individual identities associated with the arts without going through a community like deviantART or YouTube.










For the reader:




  1. How would you use a .art address?

  2. If all the arts had a special address like .art, how would it improve your use of the Web?

  3. Do you think it's important for the voices of a community to come up with the guidelines for the use of a .art address?


Let ICANN know in your comments and support Dadotart!

Boldly Facing The Future

Thu Dec 4, 2014, 2:00 PM
2 by marioluevanos







Artist Credit DanielaUhlig





Welcome.






Many of you have been in this community for a long time, but whether you’ve just joined or you’ve been a member since day one, this is your first impression of the new DeviantArt.


Change is not something that we take lightly, because it affects our collective identity. It was important for us to define who we are and what we’re made of at our core before we changed anything. We all have our own understanding of what that means, but the process of getting that core story down on paper took almost a year.


The result is “Bleed and Breed Art.” This is our center of gravity and our reason for getting out of bed in the morning.




It is the guide and the justification for everything, including our business partnerships, the development of the new app and the design of our new identity. Anything and everything we create is in service of our innate calling to Bleed and Breed Art.


This is who we are at our essence. When I say “we,” I mean you, too. We are not a company or a brand or a website—we are a community united in our love and support of art and artists. Our new look is not designed to compete or keep up with other companies, brands or websites—it’s designed to tell our story and showcase our art and artists in the best possible way. We are DeviantArt.







— Angelo (spyed), CEO






















We are where art starts, but that is only the beginning. We are a community for the creative in everyone to develop and heighten their personal sense of taste, but that’s not where it ends. We are the movement for the liberation of creative expression.


We believe that art is for everyone, and we’re creating the cultural context for how it is created, discovered and shared.


Artists love us because we are an inclusive and supportive community. We help them find their identity through self-expression. We provide the tools, resources and exposure to enable them to become better, more successful artists. We inspire people to create art by feeding their creativity.


We provide endless entertainment and inspiration. This is where you see it first. This is where whatever you’re into, no matter how niche, is embraced and expressed by a dedicated community of likeminded creatives. This is where the global undercurrent of creativity feeds the future of popular culture.


There’s no other place like DeviantArt. We are an unapologetically addictive experience. Our world is a prolific orgy of originality where creatives enjoy freedom of artistic expression. We are the deviation of creativity that shatters the confines of expectation. We can’t help it—it runs through our veins and compels us to nurture it in others. This is DeviantArt.







Artist Credit
Mark-Chadwick

















Artist CreditBenHeine




We are an unapologetically rebellious community of unconventional creatives. Never restricted by convention, we create the genres and sub genres that push the edge of the art world’s boundaries. We have a fearless confidence that comes with being the established alternative for millions of badass deviant artists. You will know us when you see us, because we’re like nothing you’ve ever seen.











Artist Creditaxcy




We’re an addictive force of creativity. Always fun, entertaining and effortlessly captivating, we’re a mesmerizing visual experience. If being the source of the digital art world’s most prolific creativity is cool, we’re destined to be iconic. There’s a reason why our vast community keeps growing: once you get a taste, you’re hooked for life.











Artist Creditwlop




We are open to the creative in everyone. Our community is a family of visual communicators born with an innate appreciation for art. It is in the blood running through our collective veins. We are more than a collaborative creative environment, we are a safe, trustworthy place for the intimate act of bonding over art from the heart.











Artist Creditigreeny




We develop ingenious ways for the world to create and discover art. Our energy and knowledge comes from years of facilitating the vibrant creativity of our community. We put every ounce of our intellectual curiosity into developing an evolving environment that stimulates and inspires our artists to push the limits of their talents.

























Our new logo is symbolic of everything we believe. It is an audacious and inspired evolution of our original dA mark—literally turning the art world upside down. We love it because, like DA, people might not get it right away and, like all great art, it challenges perceptions and perspectives. Most importantly, it elevates DeviantArt and our artists.


WE TURN THE ART WORLD UPSIDE DOWN AND BACKWARDS.







Artist credit
Senzune





Artist Credit axcy











You, the artist and the art enthusiast, are what truly define us, so you should have as much ownership over our identity as we do. Here you’ll find all of the elements of our new visual identity with high-level direction on how they should be used.



Artist Credit
axcy















The construction of our brand mark is a combination of our symbol and a completely customized wordmark, all of which use the angle of 62 degrees to cut the letter forms.



























These are the five preferred lockups of our logo and wordmark.




















There is no question that DeviantArt is green. Like art, it is in our blood. We considered every shade of green imaginable before deciding unanimously on the bold, vibrant “DeviantArt Green” you see now. Most importantly, we’ve defined a system for using it selectively rather than pervasively.





















As well as DeviantArt Green, we’ve established a neutral color palette of greys chosen specifically for their qualities to showcase art. Now, DA is represented in DeviantArt Green and our art can represent itself in the best light.










Core Gray Scale


#000000








DA Green






UI Orange















Our typeface is called Calibre (not Calibri) by a type foundry called Klim. We use caps whenever possible and give it a custom treatment by cutting off the first and last letters of words and/or sentences with the diagonal angle of our logo.






















Artist Credit
michalivan













Another great thing about our symbol is that it can tessellate to form a beautiful pattern. It is particularly powerful because, when the symbol tessellates, it allows the two “A”s to become more clear.


















Our identity is as much yours as it is ours, so we wanted you to have all of the pieces to bring it to life in your own ways. Download, share and create as you see fit.

















If you haven’t met Fella, he’s our mascot, and he’s not going anywhere. Fella’s look has changed over the years, and those changes have always been made by the community. That’s not going to change. He is yours and yours alone. Here he is with the new logo.













Artist Creditjasinski











The new mobile app was a long time coming, and it is truly amazing. Art has never looked better on a mobile device. This is not a mobile version of our website—it’s a revolutionary new way to access the entire community, submit and browse art and experience DeviantArt on the go from your mobile device.

Artist Creditjoeart-tn






Artist CreditDosshaus











Taking a deep dive into introspection required the guidance and perspective of a trusted partner. We chose to work with Moving Brands, who we consider to be the greatest independent creative company in the world. Check out their work for yourself at MovingBrands.com.



Artist Credit
Dosshaus















We spent months together, at one point even locking ourselves in repurposed warehouse space in downtown LA for an intensive 12 hour workshop. Every voice was heard. Everything was put on the table. We were exposed—stripped back to our essence and forced to reconcile our past with our future.


Tough questions were asked and answered. What does it mean to be a deviant? What is the nature of art and of artists? What are the universal truths about DA? Who are we, really?


Design sensibilities were explored exhaustively. Colors, textures, patterns and typefaces were examined and discussed extensively.


Moving Brands are pros, and their guidance was invaluable in filtering through the myriad of insights, impressions and opinions to find the common threads. It’s how we got to “Bleed and Breed Art,” which informed everything else from logo and color choices to the layout of the website and the functionality of our amazing new app.













































Bleed and Breed Art is more than a tagline. We’re using it to guide all of our decisions. In other words, before we add a feature or design an app or make a business partnership, the question, “will this Bleed and Breed Art?” is the first thing we ask of ourselves. If the answer is anything but an emphatic “yes,” we go back to the drawing board.


In many ways, “Bleed and Breed Art” is the most important piece that came out of this journey. It has always been true and will always be true.




There will be more changes and new additions in the future as we continue to grow. Some may have obvious benefits, while the reasoning behind others may not be so immediately apparent. Whatever the case may be, know that the motivation behind everything we do will always be to Bleed and Breed Art—for our 32 million registered members, for the new artists and art lovers of the future, and for the world.












Welcome. Many of you have been in this community for a long time, but whether you’ve just joined or you’ve been a member since day one, this is your first impression of the new DeviantArt.
