The 2013 Emote Awards Hey everyone, and welcome to the 5th Annual Emote Awards!
A lot has happened in the past year, and it's time once again to commemorate those awesome people that helped make it happen! And it can only be done with the help from you and the rest of the community! So I'll stop blabbering on and move right on to the important stuff.
Each phase of voting will last three weeks. The nomination phase will last from January 1st, 12 AM EST, until January 22nd, 11:59 PM EST, the voting phase period will be determined and announced at a later date. Any nominations and votes cast outside of these time frames, within reason, will not be counted.
Since the host this year is Waluigi-Prower, I cannot be nominated for or win any category. However, any groups that I am an admin in can be nominated for Best Emote-Related Group.
You cannot nominate or vote for yourself.
Welcome to the team!The group is back and is stronger than ever with our new and shiny admins!More Like This

If you are not aware Fiona, fourteenthstar, was the Director of Community Operations here on dA. She was in charge of not only Comm Ops but Seniority and Deviousness as well. Her dedication to this community while on staff was astronomically epic. In my time I have seen many staff come and go but with Fiona it feels somewhat different. I think no I know, she was not only a pillar of this community but a support beam of unimaginable strength.
I strongly encourage you to go to her page and thank her for all that she has done in her time on staff; even if you've never had any interaction with her.

Special Birthday Seniority AnnouncementMore Like This
This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after Senior Member accolade -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.
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 recognise 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 endeavors, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the

Project Educate: DeviantART-Related[deviantART related]More Like This
Avatars, whether for a Personal Site or a Group, can say a lot about the Deviant or Group by how the Avatar appears on the profile page. All Deviants and Groups can have an Avatar, as long as the Avatars are within certain parameters. Many Deviants keep the same avatar for years, often becoming known by their Avatar. Others will change their Avatars as the seasons change, or to match an upcoming holiday. Some Deviants have their names on their Avatars, some have flashy Animated Avatars and some have classic, simple Avatars. Since Avatars can be easily changed, there are Deviants who change their's as their mood, likes or dislikes alter.
Avatars can be viewed in Journals or in Artists' Descriptions by using the "icon" option. To write out a deviant's name, the "dev" link can be used by simply typing : devthestockwarehouse : (without the spaces), but to showcase the actual Avatar, :iconthestockwareho

Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays.

The Spring and the AutumnThe Spring and the AutumnMore Like This
My glorious season, my lovely spring, your flowers bloom within serenity.
And the peace and joy you always bring will be cherished for eternity.
Summer burns bright with passion, her heart scourges like fire.
But her temper poise with destruction, and hatred sears in dire.
Winter is a steward mistress, and the snow varnishes her calming face.
But she is cold and heartless, and bears no loving grace.
I am the lonely autumn, a withered leaf dancing in the air.
When your lovely flowers cease to blossom, I frown with sadness and despair.
Howling winds wail as a locust swarm.
And my dark clouds becks an ominous storm.
For now, I hold you on a picture on a canvas.
My glorious spring, I adore your tranquility.
For your life and peace is timeless.
And smile proudly for your wondrous amenity.

On my profile page, I feature a new deviation every day (or two or three), though admittedly I haven't been so good about that the last few months. The piece is usually something that caught my eye.

I realize that the site is trying to do some PR or something regarding art theft... but the first place to start, in my opinion, is in the emoticon gallery. Maybe cracking down on the art theft will get rid of a majority of the miscats.
And people wonder why the community is dead half the time.
VPNaNoEmo Weeks 1 and 2 Round-upWell, it's been rumored that the emoticon community is dead (or in deep hibernation). I think the participation in the VP-NaNoEmo kinda hints to that. But, we won't be deterred! Only a handful of entries, but some awesome ones.More Like This

Is your line art shaky, wobbly, sloppy, fat, uneven or pixelated? The subject of clean line art comes up a lot so I've gathered together a number of tips from various DA members that may help you improve your line art. Some of the techniques described below may contradict other techniques described below so you may want to experiment and decide what works best for you. Most of these assume that you have a digital tablet. (Make sure your tablet drivers have been installed correctly. If your cursor is behaving erratically it may indicate a problem with your tablet or drivers.) Some posts have been edited for brevity or spelling:
