Halloween is fast approaching, so let's celebrate by breaking out the pens and pencils (or keyboards)!

We all know Fella and dA wouldn't be the same without him anymore.
But did you ever wonder who he really is? Where does he come from? Why is he alone?
He is always at our side, lurking here and there, making your dA experience a little brighter and introducing you to new things all the time.
Your mission is to show us the world of Fella.
How does he live? Does he have pets? Is he the only one or are there other 'creatures' like him? Does he come from a distant planet? Is he the result of an experiment?
What does he eat? Or maybe he doesn't need to eat at all?
What is he doing in his freetime? Does he like to cook or read a good book? Or is he more of an adventurer, exploring the world outside?
Below you can see a few artworks, that already show Fella working for dA or in random situations. Maybe these inspire you to come up with other details of his life.

Seniority on DeviantArt is that cool thing that gives a user a pretty medal next to their username. Today I'd like to shine a bit of light on what seniority actually means.
Before we dive into all of this though I'd like to start out by quoting :faq29:
"So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognize their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endeavour, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be reco

New Critique Folder (Details Inside)Welcome, dreamers!More Like This
Some of you may have noticed that I just added a new folder to our gallery, labeled "Critique". The other admins and I have decided to make this folder to help support the members in our group.
The first thing you all should know is that you may only submit 2 deviations to be critiqued per month. This is so we can ensure people are having enough time to get through what is already in there before more is added.
The second thing is that everyone is welcome to submit to the critique folder. All types of art are accepted. Make sure you check our guidelines before submitting new pieces, though, as mature pieces will still not be allowed in our group.
Lastly, while the other admins and I will try to help with critiques, but we do not want to be the sole critique team. Therefore, we ask that members help with this by commenting/ critiquing any pieces in the folder that may catch your eye. Remember, you are not obligated to critique, it's jus

—ROBERT HENRI, THE ART SPIRIT
The thrill of viewing a work of art is partly about seeing all of the stages of prolonged struggle that were required to make it, slammed into one single instant of experiencing the finished work for the first time.
It's difficult to imagine the breaks and interruptions, the trips to the grocery store that pulled the artist away, the concessions to sleep that derailed those moments of righteous craftsmanship which came after a dozen false starts; the struggle for money to secure art supplies (and groceries) that always postponed completion one more day; the infinite number of things that conspired to prevent the work from ever coming to fruition.

Hello K-Koji! Thanks for accepting the interview!
May I ask, what is your name and what's your story behind your username?
People just call me Koji. Other than that, there's not much of an interesting story behind it. I'm very boring as a person.
When did you start to draw?
I started drawing when I was a little kid. I mean, really little. My older brother used to draw, and I, as a toddler, wanted to emulate him. So I'd sit at the kitchen table beside him and try to copy him. Though I drew traditionally my entire life until about 2011. That's when I made a conscious decision to teach myself to draw and paint digitally.
Is there a famous artist that inspired you to start drawing?
I can't say any one artist in particular inspired me. I think I actually was drawing just because I liked it for

Hi everyone! I'm Jade, better known around DeviantArt as Aeirmid. I chose my username because Aermid (or Airmid) is an Irish goddess of health and healing, and I wanted to pay tribute to her because I have dedicated my life to promoting mental and physical health in others. In fact, I'm just finishing up a PhD program in public health. In March, I will celebrate 10 amazing years on DeviantArt. Although I started my journey as a photographer, I quickly became enthralled with photomanipulation and worked hard to develop some skills. I chose my original name on DA, SanguineVamp, because I loved all sorts of dark and Gothic work. I still do. Still, I had a hard time creating dark art because my attempts at blood and gore always somehow magically evolved

While I started with traditional and digital art, I am now doing kind of everything. I love baking, crafting (with plywood for example), designing and just giving new things a try in general.
