T he Deviousness Award, bestowed in recognition of exemplary membership and an outstanding spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community, has recently undergone a reevaluation to provide a focus and a re-definition as to just what Deviousness truly represents.
The award is given once per month to honor a deviant who has gone above and beyond in their services to the DeviantArt Community. The 189 recipients of the Award thus far have brought something to the community that was not there before their presence, and it's our duty — and honor — to publicly recognize their efforts in doing so.
Early on, Deviousness was given more than once per month to a deviant whose invo

Introducing theCHAMBA

My name is Jeffrey Cruz and I'm a Melbourne-based Comic book Artist that goes under the pen-name of 'Chamba'. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, back when I would copy images of Transformers from the back of the toy packaging. That year, my Love for creating art was born.
During my first year of University back in 2003, I was introduced to DeviantArt as part of class task to join an 'online community', something that was very foreign to me. Being part of DeviantArt had allowed me to open up my eyes to the variety of styles that existed beyond my own backyard and of the people who created such works. Throughout the years I've not only made life-long fr

Hello! My name is Amber and I’m an art enthusiast and deviously addicted to DeviantArt in the most healthy way possible. My artistic adventures started when I was very young, doodling on my homework as far back as I can remember. My grandfather stirred within me a passion and desire to pursue the arts and to keep going with it. Even passing down his Disney animation books he received when he worked for Disney as an animator. After loosing his battle with cancer I lost all motivation, will and desire to continue with my art. In any form or fashion. It was soul crushing.

Hey, everyone! I’m Eric Proctor (TsaoShin) and I’m a US based digital painter. My work is a mix of fantasy, fun, and the stuff I think is cool. My background in oil painting influences my style and I like to keep my colors outrageous. I’ve been on deviantART for 10 years and my artistic growth has been shaped greatly by this community. I am continuously inspired by the amazing work that people submit here and I’m motivated by the love and comments left by people who appreciate it. Thank you for all of your support!

“It's probably a true to say I would not be a professional artist were it not for DeviantArt. When I joined the site 11 years ago I didn't want to be an artist, I just wanted to draw; I never imagined this place would help carve my career in art. But then I never expected a lot of what happened to me to happen. My early works were filled with fantasy, but art grew to be more than just a creative outlet for me, it grew to be an emotional one. As times got darker so did my work, drawing gave me a channel to explore and express my feelings, and through DeviantArt, I could connect, and it's been these personal connections, to thousands of people, of

Introducing Aeirmid
:iconaeirmid:
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

How to Write a Smart Character
Someone just asked me this question, and it is a good question. The dilemma of writing characters smarter than oneself has plagued me before. As I was analyzing this and writing a response, my answer became a whole study paper. So, I am posting it here so others can make use of it as well.
These are only my own observations and terminology, put together on the fly. There might be a few holes here, but hopefully it will serve to generate ideas on how you can create the characters you want.

First, there are different types of "smart". There are a number of talents often associated with smart characters, and they each have their own uses. Some characters have only one of these. Some have several. If you want to make a ridiculous, over-powered character . . . I dare you to roll them all into one!
Book Smarts:
Examples: Hermione from Harry Potter, or Encyclopedia Brown.
Description: A character with this talent is a walking Wikipedia/Dictionary/etc. They know lot

I’ve been drawing since I was kid but it was always a hobby which I didn’t put much time into. By 2013 I used to draw a doodle per month. Maybe.
Then, I joined the DeviantArt community on 2014 when I did the 365 days of doodles project, in which I challenged myself to draw a doodle a day, for the whole year. It was one of the most challenging things I ever did and it helped me so much with developing my craft and to keep drawing regularly.
Everything from then on was crazy and by the end of the 365 days I was getting art commissions and clie

How to Troll
How to Troll: A Pocket Guide to Ruling the Internet
Trolling the internet can be a demanding task. It takes skill and a lot of hard work to bully people from the safety of your computer, and this guide was designed to make your life easier.
The golden rule of trolling is to remember that you are awesome; you are always right, and everyone else is always inferior. That is precisely why you should be the one to dominate the internet, instead of those pesky moderators.
The first step of asserting this dominance is to pick a victim. This is perhaps the easiest part of the process; if you modify your technique accordingly, nearly anyone can be trolled. However, the easiest way is to troll those who are polite, kind to others and who take criticism well.
Once you have selected your victim(s), there are a few basic techniques that you should remember:
· Even if you are wrong to begin an argument, as soon as the other person responds to you, they are in the wrong. So remember to be

The Llama Poem
Llamas are brown, roses are red.
Give me some llamas, or i'll change my name.
You won't get llamas, as long as thou refuse.
To recieve you must give, or a llama shall bite you.
I've seen a world, with llamas all around.
Playing and enjoying, about what life it's all about.
Llama for llama, a fellow deviant said.
Oh here fellow deviant, go Albino, yay!
Now my shit went ninja, slaughter shall begin.
As long as you keep giving, you'll be a tip-top king.
Now you have your kingdom, and thou shall defend.
Leonidas thou shall become, this is madness all the way.
Now defending, a greater foe appeared.
It had a hat and a tunic, a wizard llama was.
To defeat it we must use, another greater force.
And a the gold llama appeared, to rule over the world.

Did You Know - Deviousness Award
Deviousness Award
The Deviousness Award is an award that will be handed out at the first day of each month to outstanding deviants.
Read about The Deviousness Award 2.0 here. It explains a bit more who will receive it and why it is given to outstanding deviants.
( added June 2015)
These days it can be easily recognized by the crown symbol.

There are no set criteria for the Deviousness Award, but in general the awarded deviants are known for their community spirit, their dedication and support. They are role models in different ways, who take that extra step to make deviantART a home for all of us.
How do I know that someone got Deviousness?
The latest deviant who was bestowed with the award can be found in the footer of deviantART for the entire month they received it
