Have A Deviant Christmas - Karaoke Competition!
Christmas Karaoke Competition (Win BIG!)
Personally, I LOVE Christmas. Whether you celebrate it for religious reasons, or just enjoy the company of your friends and family... or even if you just take any excuse for a drink... Christmas can be great. So with it coming up I thought I would set up a huge competition to get everyone rocking out Christmas style.
What comes to mind... karaoke! I love to sing, (I'm terrible at it, as you will soon find out!) but I just love it.
So I've set up a submission system so you can record yourself singing, send me the file - and on the 20th of December I'm going to DJ (yeah, you're going to hear my voice I'm afraid) and play all of your yummy submissions and let the crazy fiends of DeviantART vote for who they want to win.
To get you shy little flowers to join in there are HUGE prizes to be won - I have seen official DeviantART with smaller prizes :giggle:. I have had a lot of help from my gorgeous DA friends in hooking you up with some major s

Check these out before you buy expensive Photoshop
As one living on a limited budget, and unwilling to shell out hundreds of hard earned dollars on essential image editing programs such as Flash, Illustrator, Photoshop, and others, I've spent the last few months searching for free alternatives. The links here are from and are guaranteed to be spyware-free. They also all run on Vista Home Premium x64. Hope you find this article helpful. :D
Instead of Photoshop try...
...Gimp -> Has customizable plugins, much like Photoshop, as well  as the ability to add brushes.  it's probably the closest thing you'll ever find to Photoshop for free. Even offers layers.
...Photo Filtre -> For those who don't like or aren't comfortable with Gimp for whatever reason, Photo Filtre is another free alternative users of all levels will enjoy. The only drawback is the lack of layers.

Artists must depict their character(s) anywhere in this spooky town whether it be the forest, the haunted mansion, a pub full of vampires or a graveyard (these are just examples, feel free to create your own spooky haunt). Writers must create a story in which their favorite character(s) get lost and end up in this town and must solve a mystery, Scooby Doo Style, before they can leave!
The Details:
- Can draw/paint/sculpt/etc. You may photomanipulate provided you declare the stock credits and you do not use copyrighted content

Pageviews and Popularity - The real deal.
Be an artist, not a number.
Many members of the artistic community here on DeviantART were shocked by a recent popular news article about how to become popular. I won't link to it because that would be foolish - but the mentality behind it was pageview orientated and made a 'mockery of all that deviantART stands for'.
So - to spell it out for everyone on DeviantART whos ever wanted more pageviews, I went to my nearest and dearest ' popular' artists and asked them what they thought about popularity and statistics.
The answer? They don't give a damn...
Your page views won't help you progress as an artist, and that is what you should be on this art site for.. the art..
Page views can be a feel good thing - I won't deny that - but it does not reflect how much your actual art is viewed, how sucessful or popular your art itself is, or even how popular you are.
Using cheap tactics as described in the article it is easy to generate high numbers of page views even with an EMPTY gallery.
