his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

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

deviantaRT is applying to manage a new Top Level Domain called .art
Top Level Domain (TLD) is the technical name for ".com," ".net," ".org," or ".fr". These TLDs are controlled and issued by a worldwide organization called ICANN, short for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. When ICANN announced that it would accept applications for new TLDs, deviantART quickly realized that someone would try to nab ".art."

What comes to mind when you hear the name Pablo Picasso? That’s right, it’s time to break it down, Cubism-style! For the first time ever, we are hosting a Messenger Bag Design Challenge! We want you to create an original design for the flap of the bag in the style of Cubism.
For this challenge, we are defining Cubism as an art style in which instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from multiple viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often, the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create a shallow ambiguous space.

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.

Wednesday the 17th kicked off this year’s Preview Night, and energy was high as this year’s Comic-Con sprang into motion with a flurry of activity.

I like to think that the things that make one piece of art great applies, for the most part, to other genres. A painter can learn how light and shadow fall from photography, photo-manipulators can learn about composition from a great Manga drawing, and literature can give you the inspiration to try something new or take your work to the next step. You may never try all art forms you see! You can however take what you learn from them and incorporate that into your own work. It could be the difference between stagnating and that breakthrough every artist wants to find! Now on with the show!

The various journals and other tributes to Robin Williams over the past few days have sparked discussion about mental illness throughout the deviantART community, and this is wonderful because talking to one another is how we begin to strategize how we can address these problems together. Moreover, talking keeps us connected and grounded. No one has to be an island here.
Let's keep talking. Here is some more information about mental illness.
Mental illness is pervasive.
Did you know that, according to the US National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), approximately 1 in 4 people will experience some sort of mental health concern at some point during their lifetimes? Moreover, did you know that 8-10% of Americans are suffering from diagnosable depression right now?? That means everyone-- you, your parents, your children, your friends, your teachers and colleagues-- is at risk for these incapacitating diseases.

Robin Williams - Light out of DarkI originally wrote and posted this elsewhere, but I just need to post it here too and expand on it a bit. This is the only place where I'd publicly go this deep.More Like This
Robin Williams made light for the whole world out of his own personal darkness. He is irreplaceable. People like him are a true gift to life and often paying dearly for it, sometimes the ultimate price. That fact about him was not a secret.
It's deeply profound and sad when someone who caused so much joy for so many people for so long is suddenly just gone, let alone the ultimate circumstances thereof.
It is often wondered 'How can someone this funny be so sad?', or the other way around. You know how people like to refer to sad clowns without thinking any further than just this attempt at making an ironic statement.
Often enough the sad truth is that someone is as great at making people laugh as he or she is because he or she are deeply sad or depressed or otherwise very troubled on the inside. Maybe bringing joy to others is

On the lethality of mental illness
We were saddened deeply today to hear that Robin Williams appears to have taken his own life. He was a brilliant, creative mind and a voice for humanity.
I've seen a lot of tributes to him over the past hour or so. Many people have posted clips of his work, quotes, and favorite memories. That's great; it's how we honor someone. But, somehow I feel like we're missing the point.
The point is . . . it's not fucking funny.

REMINDER AND PRIZE UPDATE
Enter if you dare . . .
Ombre-De-Nuit is a high-level "dark" digital group here on dA. The administrators of the group are darkly pleased to present you, our members, with our latest challenge: The Brothers Grimm meet Burton.
Your task, should you dare to undertake it, is to twist a Grimm Fairytale into a Burton-style Nightmare.
You can find examples of Grimm fairytales here. Some popular ones include Rapunzel, Hansel & Gretel, and Cinderella. You can choose one Grimm fairytale to twist; it's fine just to depict a scene of your choosing or make one up on your own. But, the fairytale should be at least somewhat recognizable, and it must have elements that are Burtonesque.
Think about what Burtonesque means. What is the undercurrent between Sweeney Todd, Beetl

Based on the results of a previous poll, the popular choice for the contest theme is Mythology.
"Mythology can refer either to the collected myths of a group of people—their body of stories which they tell to explain nature, history, and customs—or to the study of such myths. As a collection of such stories, mythology is an important feature of every culture."
For this contest, you are invited to create an entry based around your favorite god, goddess, mythological creature, etc. However, you are encouraged to break out of the box a bit and work around a myth you are not familiar with, or one that i

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.

We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?
We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world.
