The Great Snowball Fest is on!
Get ready for a flurry of fun never before seen on DeviantArt! Use the seasonal Snowball badge to throw snowballs at deviants and art you like, and rack up points to conquer the snowball leaderboard! How to Play Deviants can throw snowballs by giving seasonal Snowball badges to deviations and comments. It costs 3 fragments, and the recipient of your snowball will receive 2 fragments, so they can gather snow to make their own! Act fast, though, because the snow will melt away after December 21st! Snowball Badge Mania! The snow may be seasonal, but if you throw 25 snowballs, you’ll get perennial snow in the form of a Shimmering Snowball badge for your Profile! The Snowball Leaderboard Do you have what it takes to rise above the other snowball throwers? Check back daily to see if you rank in the top 25! (Last updated: December 7, 3:22PM Pacific) 155,236 TOTAL SNOWBALLS THROWN Top Snowball Throwers @ThomasGreiner-Mai — 1923 snowballs thrown @BeckyKidus — 1640 @TheProvert —
Weekly Artist Interview: Nuhanotion by team, journal
Weekly Artist Interview: Nuhanotion
Follow @team for more content from artists you love! This week's interview answers the question: what if an architect was also a digital artist? @Nuhanotion's stunning work gives us a view into the inner world of that overlap. And don't forget, we will also be featuring her answers on our official Facebook page. How long have you been making digital art? What inspired you to start? I started to dabble in digital art during Pandemic 2020 when people around were dying and grieving for dear ones. I was covid-positive and isolated, alone in my space with my PC. Creating art took my mind off what has been happening. I took up digital art as a new form of expression as I ran out of materials for traditional work that I was into practicing before. But due to the unexpected gains, I found this digital way more convenient and decided to continue. What programs do you use to create your art? I use Photoshop and a Wacom Intuos to draw. I have also created art on Procreate and Paint

Promote Commissions on Deviations and Profile by team, journal
Promote Commissions on Deviations and Profile
For deviants offering commissions on DeviantArt, you can now add special commission banners to your deviations and Profile! Get more exposure on your commission offerings and increase your chances to reach potential buyers. Banner Locations Similar to banners for Subscriptions, you can use this feature to promote commissions in four distinct places, with or without Core Membership. On your deviations, two banners can be added, one beneath your artwork and one in the sidebar. On your Profile, a banner can be included above your cover art. When deviants hover over your username or avatar, a banner can be added in the preview that displays there. How to Add Commission Banners Commission banners can easily be enabled and disabled from the Account Settings page. If you have banners enabled for Subscriptions, you’ll need to disable them by selecting “Your Commissions” in order for the commission banners to show. You can swap between the two sets of banners at any time. In order to

Quatrains de Sage Raison
Sage Raison se rit bien de vous, Cœur, et s’étonne de ce triste état Où vous êtes pour un rien-du-tout ! Pour une dame que vous n’aimez pas. Vous voilà reclus chez Peine et Douleur, Pour y voir Jalousie ; pauvre fou ! Alors, ne l’aimez-vous vraiment pas, Cœur ? Sage Raison se rit bien de vous...
Cvoa the Worm by Berried-Lark, literature
Cvoa the Worm
I had said there is nothing so big in the lake of stars. Its bedding, a leap of logic weaved of dreadful- hundred undiscoverable facts passing itself off as that smaller thing: our known universe, Cvoa the Worm each is one tooth to another hanging form. Gone, adorn skies that sit unsame is: Cvoa the Worm bathysphere suns explode at the chance that heat from the self will pass over Its skin, bending forth, and setting. I had said there is nothing so fathomably It
