Limiting .text width
Learn how to limit the width of your text to improve readabilty. It's an easy trick and solves the problem of extremely wide running texts, especially an issue on wide screen monitors.
Theory/Examples Ratio: 70/30
Due to the many different sizes a journal can have on dA, it is a good practice to think about how wide you want your skins to be. You will find the pros and cons of "fixed width" versus "responsive" skins.

Daily Deviation Report: November 2013Hallo, and welcome to the November edition of my Daily Deviation Report. What follows is a comprehensive feature of the Daily Deviations that I featured during the month of November 2013 in the Abstract and Surreal Photography categories; my last of the year, and my last in this role.More Like This
In terms of this collection, all of these images caught my eye in some way; whether it be through technical perfection, compositional intrigue, or the concept within. I am proud to present these works, and I applaud the relevant artists for their dedication and inspiration.

Hi, and thank-you for the invitation! I set up my presence on deviantART under a screen-name that is German, and it means BlueBerryCake in English. It's pronounced more-or-ess like "blauw-bear-koo-khen", and was maybe not exactly the smartest idea, but now I am BBK here and that's fine.
I was born and raised in Germany, studied sociology and languages, and I've been working as a freelance translator (from English into German) for literature for quite a few years now; I love my job. Before this, I had a couple of y

Happy beanie by ~Tejetejon
CrutchWelcome once again to Film in Progress! This is a series of articles I am doing on works in progress by filmmakers and animators. Sometimes in our line of work we don't have a lot to show for a long time because lets be honest, production time for film or animation takes an awful long time so it's difficult to show people what you're working on. So what I hope to achieve in these series of articles is to give you a chance to talk about something you're working on, and if you have stills and other pieces of development work you can show it off here as well!More Like This

Challenge: Journal Skin January (Sign Up)Journal Skin JanuaryMore Like This
Journal Skin January is a challenge brought to you by ^bradleysays which involves the creation of journal skins.
The idea is to create a journal skin or gallery skin for every week in January. You will be given a generous amount of prompts to work with - these will include both words and deviations.
This means that participants are required to submit four skins in the month of January to successfully complete this challenge.
What prompted this challenge? Probably the lack of activity seen in the journal and gallery skinning community lately. It is a sad fact that most of 2013 was quiet compared to previous years. I want to start 2014 off with a bang.
December 9th: Prompts released. Participants will be able to start making their journal skins from this moment.
January 1st - 7th: Participants release their first journal skin.
January 8th - 14th: Participants release their se

1. How did you come across dA and what made you create an account here?
I think it was in 2005 - I was 16. I was learning carpentry. I was active on a 2d french forum to find information and learn more about images in general - how to draw, how to compose and stuff. There where very few tutorials and knowledge sharing like now so it was kinda hard to even know how to use Photoshop. I was on Photoshop 7 I guess. And there was a lot of people already in place and wanna protect there secret and saying what you do is shit. But the hard way is the best way

Celebrate deviantART's 13th Birthday!More Like This
On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

I just wanted to make a quick journal entry about how I just turned 7 years old on dA today, I mean I almost missed it. Man does time really fly.
I cannot believe it has been seven years since I joined this site. I guess that is because all of the wonderful and amazing people that I've met from here.
It would seriously take days or weeks to list them all and why but you know you are special to me, so thank you everyone! <3
I can't believe I'm 7! Yaaay!

Las Vegas deviantMEET Wrap-Up!More Like This
Our first-ever deviantMEET in Las Vegas hit the jackpot!
On Sunday, December 1st, deviants were already lined up outside the doors at 5:00 PM, even though the event wasn't scheduled to start until 5:30! (A handful of amazingly dedicated super deviants arrived as early as 3:30 PM!) Far be it for us to wait to get the party started, so we opened the doors a little early, allowing the crowd to rush in. After signing our guestbook – we know, physical guestbooks are so Web 1.0, but they're great mementos! – our devious artists dispersed to play at the deviantART booth.
Stocked with six Intuos 5 Wacom tablets to play with, a 24-inch Cintiq, SketchBook Pro for sketching and painting, enough table seating for traditional drawing and portfolio review, and bags upon bags of free swag (including stress balls, deviantART Sharpies, and tons of free stickers), everyone found an awesome and creative way to spend their time.
