User Badges Information Masterlist

Add this group to your +watch to get notified of new DeviantART badges when they come out. Everyone can join.

Badges are icons that can be added to your personal profile. Below are listed all the known types of badges, including how to obtain them. Not all badges are publicly available and some have been discontinued.

All badges (except llama and cake) are given by devart, a DeviantART System Bot. Because devart is not a human that account can't answer to your questions about the different badges. Also DeviantART admins can give some other badges than just llamas and cakes. This group can't give any badges because we are not DeviantART admins. Badges can be removed from your account if you contact the help desk.

Your 5 newest badges are featured on the Home tab of your profile. If you arranged your badge order before the 2020 Eclipse, those will be your featured badges. Your newest badge will push your right most featured badge out if you earn any new badges (even if you arranged them).

If you want to remove all badge notifications go to www.deviantart.com/settings/ge… and choose 'Disable message center notifications for badges'.

A group can have badges besides llamas and cakes if it was converted from a regular dA account using convertaclub before July 4th, 2010. Click here for proof.

Cake badges can be given to groups using deviantart.com/GROUP-NAME-HERE/badges/cake/
Llama badges can be given to groups using deviantart.com/GROUP-NAME-HERE/badges/llama/

Click here to give this group a llama. Click here to create a link like this for yourself. Go through the steps and when you are asked to find "gmi-gruser_id", look for "userid" instead because of site changes since the link creator was made.

Click on each badge image for an example.

Original Staff Merit badges "badges started out as merit badges for DeviantART staff. They were only available to staff for special accomplishments like merit badges for the boy scouts. We started making them available to members by way of special events like our 10th birthday bash and hidden pageviews. They gained a lot of popularity about 3 years ago with the introduction of the llama badge system for our annual April fools prank. The rest is history, you guys can't seem to get enough of them. :B"

New badge opportunity  Create With Pride!Celebrate Pride Month on DeviantArt! Learn how LGBTQ+ professional artists Create With Pride and join the festivities to get a new profile badge! In many places around the world, June is recognized as LGBTQ+ Pride Month. While the specific days of celebration may vary, Pride is an opportunity to embrace and highlight the diverse backgrounds and accomplishments of LGBTQ+ people, especially in the world of art. This year, DeviantArt connected with recognizable LGBTQ+ artists in professional creative fields to share what Pride means to them, and how their identity inspires them to create. Each week we’ll share a new journal and new prompt on how to Create With Pride, featuring the creative and talented Fortune Feimster, Alyssa Wong, Allegra Clark, GlitchxCity, and this week’s featured artist, Dax ExclamationPoint!Meet Dax! ,You may know Dax ExclamationPoint from season 8 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, but this cosplaying queen has had a long history with art in many forms. Dax’s love of comic books and science fiction has influenced her work, and she has been inspired by super powered women from the start. For Dax, a love of comics came first, followed by drag, and then cosplay. Through cosplay, Dax has been able to reach a broad spectrum of people and work with the creative forces that have always inspired her. Dax served as the inspiration for X-Men drag queen superhero Darkveil, created by artist Sina Grace, and created a special edition variant cover for Sina’s book Getting It Together with Image Comics. Dax has also worked with comic creator Steve Orlando to portray his character Seer for Image Comics’ Commanders in Crisis, and has created a custom variant edition cover for Commanders in Crisis #9, available in June 2021. Dax has toured the world performing live on stage dressed to emulate those characters she loves the most. She frequently attends conventions whenever possible as a cosplay ambassador and featured guest, and regularly appears on panel discussions dealing in all aspects of nerd culture. She loves to dissect the symbolism of important characters while maintaining a focus on how they relate to and inspire the queer experience, not just for herself but for others. Dax seeks to bridge the gap between fandom and queer culture whenever possible, showing that love for the hard work of dedicated creators can inspire anyone. Find her on both Twitter and Instagram with the username Daxclamation!What Does Pride Mean to Dax? The question of “pride” is always a strange one to me. Well, not entirely...I'm a Leo, so I've been told by more than a few sources that I'm very proud. Regardless, queer pride is one of those things I don’t fully notice. It's taken many years and a lot of living to get to that place. I always said “I’m no less gay during Pride than any other day of the year,” and I mean that. I am who I am and I can't hide that part of myself. I think “pride” is accepting that you are who you are and never dumbing it down for anyone around you. It's about being pissed off you have to code switch. It’s about having to explain your comedic or pop culture references to your great aunt. It's about wearing whatever the hell you feel like to whatever function (but, yanno, still dressing appropriately for the event ‘cause you’re not a farmer...but then even if you are, you’re a farmer with amazing taste.)Pride is the purest form of self-expression. It gives you the freedom to say, “this is me, this is what I like, and this is what I'm good at.” The idea of “pride” plays into my art constantly. When I make a new costume or style a new wig I know what works for me and what doesn’t. I choose characters based on who I completely relate to followed by which outfits work for me because I refuse to compromise my own comfort for any reason. Above all of that, when I'm creating, I love the process, and when everything is said and done, I'm proud to show my work because I did it. I’m terrible at waiting to show my work, I know the algorithm says when my highest follower viewing is, but you know what? I don't care if it's 1 pm or 3 am, if I'm excited about a piece I've worked on, it is getting shared. I'm proud that I put the work in and I love the outcome. Pride is about the journey and the outcome. It's about growing, learning, and acquiring new skills, as well as about just being proud you finished something and showed up. No matter where you are in your journey, be proud that you put in the work and you made something that is completely yours. Celebrate it at all costs.

I'm here again to report. There's a  DeviantArt Collective Member badge. It doesn't seem to be available to most users, but I assume it's something to put on the list.


There's some interesting links here as well.

This person submitted their eye tutorial two days ago and got the badge. I'm guessing then that this other person who didn't get it, might be a glitch for them. I did reply to their post for them to submit a ticket to help desk. So for now, I would say that it is still available.

Thanks for reporting! I'm not sure if it was to end at the end of April or not. I did try to investigate a week ago and I looked a few people's accounts who submitted after April. Some didn't have the badge but some did so I assumed it wasn't available anymore. I will investigate further before updating the Masterlist on the front page.
