Stock and Resources Updates Feb 2013Heading Into 2013
We are well on our way towards the warmer part of the year for those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere, and whilst we shake off our winter blues and snow boots, our Southern Stockers have been wowing us with new beautiful stock and resources (whilst sweltering in the heat!)
The gallery cleanup is still going on, but with a reminder to be patient with us, we know its not easy but we have a very VERY big gallery and just a few people (mostly just Erin and myself) tackling the issue, but its not been forgotten or ignored. Erin and I are also very busy with home life as well
If you feel we've missed out on a sub category (sadly this is very likely right now as we concentrate our efforts on the most used/submitted to areas) please feel free to note us and point us in the right direction!

Film + Animation Gallery Update March 2014Hello Deviants!More Like This
Myself and kingmancheng have a lot of great news to report for the Film & Animation galleries. There have been a number of changes behind the scenes, and there will be more coming soon!
We are excited to announce that for the first time in a long time, the film and animation frequently asked questions have all been reviewed and updated. We have tried to clarify a number of confusing points as well as update information that was out of date.
You can check out the full FAQ here.
Film & Animation Applications
In addition to the FAQs, the application process has also been updated! The application is now clearer, and easier than before. We are also addressing the speed and way that applications are reviewed and hope to have some news there shortly. In the mean time, if you want to apply, take a look at how to do that!

Forum Features #41 - February: Buildings!Once again, the Community Relations team is here to feature the artworks of deviantART's beloved forumers!More Like This
Once a month, we select one active member from the forums and we feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.
As we're kind (and awesome), we also decided to give an opportunity for everybody to get featured! Every month, we create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a particular theme. This thread is made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs of your artwork that match the theme and, at the end of the month, we select our favorite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article.
The best thing is that being an active member of the forums is the only requirement!
Featured Forumer of the Month: sbkMulletMan.

Celebrating Diversity HubWelcome to the Celebrating Diversity Hub This is a collection of all the articles that have been posted under this theme.More Like This
We live in a world full of diversity, every day in real life and every day on dA. And it happens so often that a work of art is "slashed" simply because it is different than others. Because someone sees it and doesn't understand it and doesn't take the time to think about it.
People who react like that to art, follow the same thought process, that so many many people follow when it comes to Racism, Sexism, Homophobia: "This is different to me, therefore it must be wrong." You may wonder if that comparison may not be too harsh, but when we open they way for people to condemn what is different in the small things, like in this case Art, we open the path to that thought process taking shape in many more places.
Instead of hating on differences, we need to embrace them! Because differences make life so great! We don't want to live in a dull world where everyone think

News from Stock and ResourcesLine-art & Character Templates GalleryMore Like This
The Line-art & Character Sheets gallery has been renamed to "Line-art & Character Templates" in hopes of less confusion going on there. The gallery is meant for line-art (there seems to be no problem with this) and the less-understood item called a character sheet template. These are character sheets that have NOT been filled out yet, and are available for others to use.
Pre-filled character sheets need to be placed in Digital Art, or wherever is appropriate. As a reminder, please only place resources for others to use into the Resources & Stock Images gallery. We are putting some extra focus into this sub-gallery to get it nice and shiny!
If you need help moving your filled-in character sheets out of the stock gallery, give one of us a holler
