Holiday Card Project 2012
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.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

Preparing for NaNoWriMo Part 1We may only be one week into October, but November and NaNoWriMo is just around the corner. If you've never heard of it, NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. That means in the span of thirty days, participants will write 50,000 words.More Like This
1,667 words per day if they're writing every day.
2,273 words per day if they're only writing on weekdays.
6,250 words per day if they're only writing on weekends.

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!

Let us begin with a definition. Dictionary.com defines anthropomorphism as 'the attribution of human form or behaviour to a deity, animal, etc'. For this contest, the definition must be a little narrower. We want you to write about non-human animals with human characteristics. These characteristics can include, but are not limited to (and of course do not have to include):
Use of first person from the animal's perspective, such as in poems by Ted Hughes e.g. 'Hawk Roosting', and by Rudyard Kipling e.g. 'Seal Lullaby'.
Complex thought processes (using your own judgement to define 'complex'), such as in Sheila Burnford's novel The Incredible Journey.

MLP Rant. >:IYou know, I am honestly, TRUELY sick and tired of seeing fucking Alicorn OCs that don't adhere to the show rules: Gods.More Like This
Cadence was no exception. She was supposed to be a unicorn.
Even worse, it makes me sad there aren't enough Earth Pony OCs because people think they're useless, when they're actually the most important of all. They cultivate the fucking earth.
People who make Alicorns always use the same excuses: Cadence, background alicorn filly, used to be in the OLD MLP, and it's my OC I can do whatever the fuck I want.
LAME. Fucking LAME
Your FC, not OC, needs to adhere to rules. There are RULES. Yes, people can make them for fun, but REALLY, it's far more interesting when they can either use magic OR fly. They DO NOT need both. DO FUCKING NOT.
You know who needs to?
PRINCESSES. Because they RULE Equestria.
Given the fact that I've seen some decent alicorn FCs, with good designs/good stories, I honestly w

In a soliloquy of disharmony
And that the key to our story

And our hero
He cant feel his hands
And he was sent with the plans
From the desk of some foreign man
He set his feet down on some German land
Confronts a psychopath with the ratio of man, and now
He's tied tightly to the arms of a chair
He shakes and struggles violently and screams out loud in despair
He feels a cold chill flowing through the room and the air
He smells the stench of taxidermia as a shadow appears
And there is a little girl and she, she likes teddy bears and, and the way you look when your covered in blood and with nowhere to run...

This weeks 'Weekly Challenge' is a bit different, simply because I think we should expand our NZ love farther than playing the game, so this week I'm going to make you use your minds for something creative! (Aw yes, your poor, unused brains, they'll have to be used over the weekend! )
This weeks challenge-
Write a short story of a scenario of how you envision would be the final moments of the Nazi Zombie crew before their rather untimely death.
Must be more than 500 words
You cannot incorporate an OC/ Yourself into the story
Other than that, I am just trying to get some more creative juices flowing through our minds, so I would absolutely love to read whatever any of you manage to write out.

Today we're bringing you an easier way to purchase art on deviantART! When viewing a deviation that is enabled as a Print, you'll be met with a sleek new menu that is designed to be simple and straightforward.
We've moved the Prints functionality from its own separate page and placed it within the deviation page, to help artists sell more of their work, and to reduce friction for buyers looking to purchase art they love.

Update to my Big News...Well. Here goes:More Like This
After 9 days, I was accepted by that publishing company I sent my story to. Then commenced the period of their contract.
After ten days...I declined.
I declined it for several reasons. After hours and hours of research in my spare time of an industry I hardly knew, I came to the understanding that this particular publishing company did business in...sort of an unconventional way. But the thing that got me most was their editing department. I researched a bunch of books they had published and read their summaries, read their opening pages as Amazon.com allows, and I just couldn't be satisfied with the publishing company's editing skills. Granted, the author has a momentous amount of rights to their book, so it could have been the author's insistence a sentence or two remain that way, but still. I just didn't feel like the publishing company had what I needed.
What do I need? Well maybe this whole process taught me: I need an editor. Badly. I have no freaking clue how I'

I have been so drained without having someone be able to read my stories, that I need feedback. I need to know how I'm doing. This novel that I submitted was the one I wrote after finishing 'Coushander'.
This past week has been SO busy trying to get it ready. I've been working with my my grandma, helping her move, and then pulling almost all-nighters, reviewing it one last time. I pray I hear back something. Of course it would be fantastic if I heard back something really positive! I'm trying not to have delusions of grandeur.....But it would be wonderful.....
Ok, well, wish me luck, and thank you so much if you do! I appreciate it so much. Writing has saved my life, as pathetic as that sounds. I thank God for giving me an imagination and these voices in my head who need their stories written down. Hearing back something great would mean t

I understand I'm not always the easiest person to deal with. I have my mental problems like everyone else. I hold grudges when stabbed in the back like anyone else. So why is it so hard for my family to care? I often have better relationships with total strangers online than I do with my own siblings.
I think communication is only a joke or a theory in my family. Ask us about something we like and we'll gnaw your ears off about it. Ask us about our feelings and suddenly we're quiet. Ask us to spend time with each other and suddenly we have any number of other things to take care of. We'd even prefer to clean up after the neighbors' dogs' than to visit each other.
At least it feels that way to me. I feel like my siblings are complete strangers. I know most of my extended family

Yes, most of what was written above are song lyrics. But the accuracy is there. I am an introvert. I don't like large groups. My definition of a large group is more than a half dozen people. I get lost in the shuffle. I don't know what to say or to whom. The larger the group, the more withdrawn I become, the more I want to find a corner to hide in. Doesn't make it easy to do what I need to do to survive life.

A horse foams at the mouth because it is in pain.
MYTH. By foaming at the mouth, the horse is accepting the bit and sucking on it, creating drool/foam, much as if you were to suck on a lollipop but you mouth was facing the ground and you didn't care if your drool went everywhere. NOW there IS such a thing as too much foam, which by then means that the horse is stressfully chewing on the bit, or angry, but every horse is different with it's "foam level" Tru himself drools all over himself and down his chest if I'm hacking on a loose rein with no contact.

Hello, deviants! In an effort to keep the community informed and to provide the best possible experience for our members, we wanted to inform you of changes to our reporting system.
DeviantART is dedicated to protecting our artists, and in an effort to be able to more quickly handle complaints by deviants who have had their rights infringed on, we have changed the way we receive complaints from the artist or the copyright holder.
In the past, we took reports by the copyright holder in two different ways: An informal report via the Report Violation tool and a formal complaint via contacting the Help Desk. While both of these methods were effective, they presented many setbacks.
The informal report did not gather all the necessary information for a formal copyright complaint and was prone to misuse by well-meaning deviants who would attempt to report images they did not own the copyright to

So the general purpose of this journal is twofold; for one I really need to get the old journal from September put away since it's truly out of date now that it is nearly April and the second reason is that there is a lot of misinformation floating about and being spread about what you can or can't do and this misinformation is sometimes causing tickets to be sent into our customer support center which amounts to a waste of staff time and resources.
Some of the information is old and based on the way things used to work and what we used to advise or allow and some of it is just downright wrong and based on stuff people that people want to be true but which isn't.
Because people love to quote from staff journals, staff news articles as well as the FAQ and any other official source they can I'm leading off with the disclaimer that what I am writing here today applies to policy as it is currently written- if you are reading this and it's six months, a ye

Now I have to do all the stuff I've been promising to do as soon as exams ended!
Please be patient with me as I catch up. As an FYI, I stopped replying to DD suggestions because it would take me hours to do so, and that time could be better spent doing a project or featuring some people. But you'll be seeing more features in the coming days and weeks.
On a related note: I would love to see your DD suggestions! I'm going back in time for some of the things I'm featuring, but if you have other suggestions, by all means send them my way.
Wishing you love!

An official word on lotteriesThere has been a small number of lottery-type opportunities opening up as groups recently and also on user accounts. These games of chance have attracted attention within the community because they offer a gambling type venture where deviants may win additional prizes, or receive their points back with an additional increase, should they be the lucky deviant to be selected.More Like This
Some deviants have expressed concerns over these groups, not knowing whether or not these lotteries are legitimate, or even allowed within our community. We are aware that there are some concerns over the legalities of such lotteries, and would obviously not wish for any deviants to put themselves in a potential situation which may result in legal intervention. Before starting any lottery activity, deviants should consider obtaining legal advice in their local territory. Criminal prosecutions can occur.
We've gave this a lot of thought in terms of the community’s interests, and considere
