Wind in the cypresses
Wind is blowing in the cypresses Sky is clear as far as the eye sees Wind is blowing Sea is flowing And the olive grooves are growing In the warm and sweetly smelling breeze Gulls are crying at ships coming home Shores are dressed in white lace of sea-foam Gulls are crying Nets are drying And the fishermen are trying To sell their catch where the people roam Stars are gleaming in the evening sky In the warm air moths flutter and fly Stars are gleaming Children dreaming In the taverns wine is streaming Served with honey cake and goat cheese pie Lutes are singing in the fragrant air Artists, poets, actors are all there Lutes are singing Dancers swinging And the citar strings are ringing As theatres lure you in with flair

Add banners to promote your Premium Galleries! by team, journal
Add banners to promote your Premium Galleries!
You can now promote your Premium Galleries with banners on your deviations and Profile! Premium Galleries are a simple way for artists to sell multiple exclusive artworks at once through a one-time purchase. For deviants that currently offer Premium Galleries for sale or want to in the future, you can highlight your Premium Galleries with special banners that will display on your deviations and Profile. These banners are a useful tool to promote your works for sale and give you more opportunity to be seen by potential buyers! Banner Locations Similar to banners for Subscriptions and Commissions, you can use this feature to promote Premium Galleries in four distinct places. Two banners can be added on your deviations, one beneath your artwork and one in the sidebar. On your Profile, a banner can be included above your cover art. When deviants browsing on desktop hover over your username or avatar, a banner can be added in the preview that displays there. How to Enable

Boost a deviation with the Hype badge! by team, journal
Boost a deviation with the Hype badge!
In response to community requests, the Hype badge, which boosts deviations to a larger audience on Browse, is now a permanent feature on DeviantArt! More people seeing art often leads to more comments and favorites, which can encourage an artist and really brighten their day. How the Hype Badge Works Deviations that receive a Hype badge will be boosted to more people’s Home pages for two days! Hype badges can be granted for 100 fragments, and the deviant who receives it will also get 10 fragments. You can only award a Hype badge to a deviation once. While posts and comments can be given a Hype badge, they won't receive any boosting effect. The Hype badge is replacing the Emerald badge, which cost the same amount of fragments to grant. Start boosting deviations! Need fragments to get your Hype on? Upgrade to Core to get fragments each week!
