Getting involved with the Community and stuffHeya. So as some of you know, my Community Volunteer work is almost done, expires in 2 days time, back to being a :iconheartless-plz:.More Like This
I realise that there are many people out there who ain't aware of the Community, be it the contests thats happening or the charity events that are going on, or even just Deviantart News. In fact before I became a CV, even I wasn't aware of what is going on in Deviantart land, I was just in my own little dark basement drawing alone in my underwear not realising there are life outside of my cave. So to keep it simple. Here are a few groups to get your going. Getting involved with the community also gives you an extra boost in exposure to your art by the way. Its great.
:icongetdailydeviations: Is a great group to follow, as you can submit art in the group for a possible chance of getting a Daily Deviation, and a DD REALLY helps in letting people see your art. I mean look, you can be Michelangelo uploading the Sistine Chapel on Deviantart, the people who s
The Wind Rises Contest WinnersMore Like This
In the Wind Rises Tribute Contest, we asked you to celebrate the art of Hayao Miyazaki by creating a very special Tribute to the art of "The Wind Rises." Each of the three winning entries picked by deviantART staff were featured on the deviantART homepage in a billboard that linked directly to the winner's deviantART profile. In addition, each winner will receive a framed print of his or her work and $1,000 USD! Thank you to everyone who participated in paying tribute to Miyazaki's last film!
dArp: Daily DeviationsThe DD is a known abbreviation within deviantART.More Like This
But those two letters can be a challenge for all on deviantART sometimes. For this dArp article i will not focus on art but collected the articles and explanations of other people.
Also known as Daily Deviation. It is a daily feature given since the beginning of deviantART to showcase a few selected pieces. For 24 hours it will be seen at the footer or at the DD page. Afterwards it will vanish among the older DD pages. It will be forgotten instantly after those 24h and only gets a bit attention when CVs do their monthly DD feature again or when someone stumbles across them by accident.
Artworks featured as a DD can be easily recognized by that little red heart framed by a golden background below the actual deviation. It often comes together with comments like "Congratulations for the DD".
DDs can not be a journal, a WIP or any artwork located at the 'Scraps' category.

Project HopeMore Like This
Hi guys! Foreveredshadowed here! I guess I should introduce myself a little before we get to the good stuff. My name is Mackenzie and I have been on deviantArt now for about 2 years. I love to draw, mainly cats and humanoid figures, but more recently, My Little Ponies. I also like graphic designing. I don't draw digitally very often, for I'm afraid I do no own a drawing tablet at the moment. I'm 14 and I'm in 8th grade.
Now onto the good stuff
I've been thinking and developing this for a couple of weeks, and I have decided that it is a good way for the community of deviantArt to interact. I call it Project HOPE (Helping Other People Everyday).
But what is Project HOPE? Project HOPE is an opportunity for all of deviantART's community to interact with each other. To participate, just find a Deviant that you think you can help. All you have to do is draw a picture for them, or get to know them better, or even a nice note can help. You never know what your kindness can
Holiday Card Project 2013More Like This
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 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

Hope you had a wonderful start to October!! I'm eager for Hallowe'en and watching the typical leaf rain of the season *_*
But there's something I'm even more eager about and it's to introduce you to October's Manga Artist of the Month...
The incredibly talented deeJuusan!
I met Dee a few months back when I hosted the Manga Chapters & Pages Themed DD Week! One of the pieces I had the honour of featuring as a Daily Deviation for that week was precisely a chapter of Dee's manga 'Grey is...'. I immediately fell in love with her unique style, the raw emotions in the pages and most of all the humanity within the main characters. I was stunned. I still am!
It's with great pleasure that I crown deeJuusan as October's Manga Artist of the Month! Keep reading below to know more about her!

This article was written due to the recent uproar from some groups of the community because of the new username symbols.
Change is something handled differently by everyone. Some people accustom to change very quickly, others may take a long time or may not adjust to change at all. In regards to deviantART Site Updates, it's important to know ways to welcome change and embrace it. You are not expected to love every feature that is released, but giving it a chance before bashing it is a right step forward.

Introducing TagsMore Like This
Discover more of your favorite topics.
Tags create landing pages around topics — making it easier to discover related artwork, bringing together artists and art appreciators, and forming communities around common interests. As DeviantArt grows and creates new ways to discover great content, we believe tags will play an important role in better surfacing artwork.
Tag Deviations, Collections, and Status Updates
You now have the ability to tag your deviations and Collections. Tags added to your deviations will be publicly viewable — this is a change from the previous use of keywords, which were private. Visitors can learn about your work by viewing how you tagged it, and can find more works by you and other deviants based on tags. Tags can also be used in comments, Status Updates, Journals, and Collections.
Tagging your deviations and Collections will improve their visibility across the
Introducing Improved CollectionsMore Like This
Giving curators the recognition they deserve.
With the launch of the Watch Feed, you can also now watch Collections made by other deviants. Collections are surfaced through the Watch Feed, creating a new way to discover and expose artwork on DeviantArt. Collections have been given additional exposure by appearing on deviation pages as well as tag pages.
“I am loving Collections as well. I am proud of my Collections and am glad they will finally be getting notice. And it also gives more exposure to the artists as this is more viral in nature than simply faving something then making an art feature journal to share it with others.” —GillianIvy
When you watch someone, you’ll automatically be watching all of their Collections — but you can also choose to enable or disable watching Collections on a deviant
Introducing the Watch Feed and Status UpdatesMore Like This
Connecting you with your watchers.
The Watch Feed creates a sequential stream of activity from your watchlist, including deviations, Journals, Collections, Status Updates, Polls, Forum threads and Critiques. Status Updates let people share quick updates about what they’re working on or what inspires them. Find an awesome deviation? Share it in your Status Update.
As we designed our upcoming Mobile app, we understood the need to build something streamlined and direct to deliver what you want to watch. The Watch Feed was built for smartphones and tablets. While we love the robust tools available in the Message Center — and they’re not going away — the Message Center is not an environment that works well on mobile.

We're proud to unveil the Today page — the new human and dynamically powered newspaper for the community that reflects the stories inside of DeviantArt as they pertain to art, fandom, pop culture, and world culture.
Designed to showcase a variety of content — including editorial pieces, Journals, contests, and even deviants new to the site, the Today page reflects the undercurrent of what's happening now — both online and off.

Introducing the New NavigationMore Like This
Explore the full range of DeviantArt.
With better organization and improved structure, our new navigation creates a more streamlined site experience. Features like Today, Undiscovered, and What’s Hot have been given more prominence, while the More menu is now easily accessible with its simplified, new look. The addition of infinite scroll on Daily Deviations allows you to quickly discover even more hand-selected deviations. This all adds up to more control over what you use most and makes it easier to discover great artists and their art.
The More menu, which was previously available next to the DeviantArt logo, has been better organized and moved to a more prominent and convenient location. This change was based on community feedback that its previous placement was hard to find, and its contents overwhelming.

A Guide to Effective TaggingA new method to promote and discover art has been released to the community in the form of Tags! When submitting art, adding relevant tags to your deviations will help viewers discover art of interest to them and give your work more exposure.More Like This
You can add tags based on a variety of things, be it subject matter, themes, medium used, fandom, or anything else you feel is important.
Use these tips to make the most of tags and help your art to find its audience:
Keep it simple. The less complicated the tag, the easier your art is to discover.
Be specific. If you take a picture of a rose, tagging it as #flower, while correct, won’t get your art as much attention as tagging it #rose will. You can, of course, tag both.
Tag efficiently. If your art is based on Lord of the Rings, tag it #LordOfTheRings and/or #lotr. You don’t need to tag every combination — t

♦Shiny Pokemon are exempt from this rule, but may not be used through regular Game Play.

PracticeBy now everybody already knows that becoming a good artist doesn't come from talent alone. On contrary; talent is a myth. Like the famous quote goes: "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration". Meaning so much that even with a good idea and a bright mind, you still have to work your ass off in order to achieve something. While this makes mad skills available for basically everybody, I still hear many people complain about practice being a rather boring thing, or about them practicing a lot but still getting nowhere.More Like This

Think about your ultimate goal - what is that matters to you the most, what would make you incredibly happy and excited. Write that down and work your way through to it. It will be the reason, the reminder for you to look forward in those times, when you'll feel less motivated.
Try to write also weekly, monthly and yearly goals - be reasonable and realistic regarding that, but don't be afraid of challenges. They have to be S.M.A.R.T. - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.
