The Devious Dreams campaign launched in March 2019 as a chance for DeviantArt to grant artists the tools they need to make their creative evolution a reality. With over $20,000 in prizing available to make dreams come true, thousands of deviants shared a wide range of creative and heartfelt dreams for their artistic future. We particularly enjoyed seeing the support everyone put forward for each others’ creative goals.
Now that the campaign has come to a close, it is our honor to announce the recipients of Devious Dreams grants—a collective of artists from all walks of life with a broad spectrum of creative ideas. Some of these deviants requested drawing tablets so they can create every day. Others asked for traditional art supplies, or photography tools to more efficiently create and share their art. Some asked for crafting supplies like sculpting or sewing materials. The projects each artist put forward were varied and inspired, and it’s our pleasure to help bring these dreams to life.

Dream Recipients! :star:

Making Dreams a Reality! :star:

A DeviantArt staff member individually replied via comment to each dream recipient on April 3rd or 4th to inform the respective deviants they were selected, and the reactions of the recipients alone made the campaign well worth undertaking! Some of our favorite reactions include this excited comment from @LadyYomi

We also awarded an additional $2,000 in prizing to deserving deviants as part of the Devious Dreams livestream! Performer and voice actress Erika Ishii hosted the festivities, featuring voice actor Gary Anthony Williams doing readings of literature submitted to DeviantArt, clay sculpting games with @humblehills @ekud @HeartsUnchained and much more! If you didn’t get a chance to see the stream when it was happening live, have no fear! You can still watch the full video!

Congratulations to everyone who won!

If you're like me and you didn't, don't complain. instead chase your dream with more vigor than ever before.
Thank the devs for helping many people realize their dreams, they didn't have to be this generous to the community but they were.
Encourage the winners to pursue their goal and support them as they grow.

This can be the day you begin working towards your dream project, 

so why not start now?

Okay, so, I bet when these people have completed their projects, whether it’s pottery or art, they will probably sell it at way more than $2000.

Congrats to the winners! ^^ I knew that I wouldn't be chosen, so I'm not disappointed.
And although I may not agree with every project that won, it's none of my business, so congratulations!

By the way, to every artist that needs this info: you can obtain Photoshop and SAI for free.
Also, there's no need to spend a huge ammount of money on traditional art supplies. Sometimes, cheaper suplies are either of the same quality or even better than well known brands. (Since some famous brands are also behind most of the low cost brands)

For some people sure. I got mine for free (when I still had a pc) and it was the latest edition at the time.
It depends on how you get it. I would never pay that much for a program! I prefer to save that money to eat; something that I haven't for guarantee every day.

Just want to add to this comment section as I see a few salty people getting a little too annoyed. Not going to lie, it must be annoying to have a dream and get some hope for it and then turns out it was for nothing. I understand, I would of loved to win and have my animations succeed. But I tell you what, no matter your budget you can climb.

This Prize is a boost, nothing is impossible, you can get that money with hard work and effort.

Stop getting upset, get over it and get back to work. If you really want that money, go and get it, nothing is stopping you. Earn it.

And I see a certain someone upset because a "furry won", so what, I am friends with no furry and I dont like furry culture. But why should they be treated different. They won, its not deserved, no one deserves this gift, its a gift. Please just go follow your dreams with a prize/gift or not.

Hope yall get there, I sure know I will, and thats coz I want it so badly, so I will simply keep working to the best of my ability.

Really a cosplaying furry won? Like no a Furry shouldn't win. I'm not trying to hate I just think a Furry shouldn't win. I just think the money should have went toward a better project like mine for example traveling is more expensive than a fur suit. I want to travel to take pics of more places. I want this contest to be done again and more fairly because artist with better skill won. And the ones that spammed their ideas should have been disqualified. And some of these do not look like projects. Please do better picking next time. And of course this contest is rigged again just like ever other contest on here. The winners better not take the money and spend it on something else. Some of these people did not deserve to win.

I'm not being entitled. I just think it's unfair that they did not read every comment and didn't disqualify people that spammed their comment and that better artist won. I just think the contest is rigged and unfair as usual. I don't have anything against furries. I just think it's unfair that one won.

You know, with a name like that, a picture like that, and a dream like you posted yourself... Your words betray you... Look, this person just got their dream realized, boosted, and gave them the same light it would've given you, me, or anyone else on here who participated but didn't place. So what they are a furry. So what they weren't. They have a passion, like you and your photography, and they wanted some help to get them going, just like you did, just like me, just like the rest of us.

Come on bud, be happy for em! Encourage them, and I'm sure they'd do the same for you!    ^^

Godspeed, and best of luck to your photography.

I think that that was going to be obvious. Besides, if someone won simply by wanting to make their group as a super group (meaning, the money will go back to DA), it's obvious how the selection worked.
Even so, since I never expected to be chosen, I give my congratulations to the winners. Because even if I may disagree with one choice or another, they still deserve to be congratulated.

Devious Dreams: The latest news!The Devious Dreams campaign launched on March 18th to provide deviants with an opportunity to reach for their artistic evolution by awarding $20,000 in prizing to deviants with art-inspired dreams. The community’s response to Devious Dreams has been unbelievably inspiring and we want to thank everyone for participating, sharing your creative visions, and even just commenting to support artistic endeavors! If you aren’t familiar with Devious Dreams, there’s still a chance to put your dream forward! We want to hear about an art-related project you wish you could undertake, and what you need in order to make it a reality. What People Have Said So Far! “Part of the excitement is seeing the different types of projects people have come up with. I’ve been reading all the comments since day one and I invite others to do the same. Some people have shared community projects, personal projects, or are simply seeking the means to continue doing the work that they’re currently doing. But they’re all equally as passionate at their craft. It’s definitely going to be interesting to see what happens in the end and, hopefully, even if you don’t leave with a monetary prize, you’ll leave with a new friend (or friends), new knowledge, and an increased drive to get to do what you want in the long run.” —@savagefrog “It's such a great opportunity for artists to turn a dream into a reality and the best thing is that to apply is as simple as presenting your project in a comment! I think it’s a great initiative from DeviantArt, an opportunity to support the artistic community in a very real way, something that I don't see often in other sites.” —@thiefoworld “Giving people an opportunity to have their dream granted is great, especially for those who are disabled like myself, or just can't get the funds to make things happen. My group, @My-Lumia is about helping people by giving them characters to bond with and use freely, preferably with the help of a therapist, through the use of creative activities. It’s all about self improvement, facing challenges, having a place to have fun with others, and much more. I was able to obtain a super group as part of the Devious Dreams event, for which I am grateful. Because of the Devious Dreams project, I have gotten more people who are interested in helping, and have moved to make things happen in what ways I can.” —@celestialsunberry Creative Participation! We’ve been avidly reading through the thousands of comments on the Devious Dreams journal and enjoying the wide variety of ideas that everyone has put forward! Some projects have been grand, sweeping ideas that would take a lot of individual work, while others have been more modest projects involving upgrading old hardware or getting art supplies to create more of what they’re already working on. Some of you have shared ideas and are supportive of one another’s projects, like this conversation between @retr0dude and @celiest, and we love that! Thank you for showing support for your fellow artists! A few of you have come up with some humorous ideas, including a few that reminded us of a familiar Kickstarter project from 2014, like this one from @rubenraphaelart: Making Dreams a Reality! Because of the amazing community response to Devious Dreams, we started funding some creative dreams early, and actually awarded an additional $2,500 in prizing last week to help some worthy deviants strive for their creative futures. Ranging from things like pen nibs and Photoshop subscriptions to pottery wheels and oil paints, these deviants put forward their goals and are going to have their chance to explore those ideas!"Wheel Away Sweet Sister" by @majorasmasks "Full-Length Comic" by @digitaldesignation "Forever Blooming" by @awkwaard "Anatomy on Self-learning" by @manese55 "Dice!" by @allviran-art "Comic - Fear The Water" by @dingo-paws "Capture the city- Plein air" by @livia-anna "Learning sculpture, as a beginner" by @bronzehalo "OIL!" by @mrbonecracker We also recently awarded another $2,000 in prizing to some deserving deviants as part of a Facebook livestream! Performer and voice actress Erika Ishii hosted the festivities, featuring voice actor Gary Anthony Williams doing readings of literature submitted to DeviantArt, clay sculpting games with @humblehills @ekud and @HeartsUnchained and much more! If you didn’t get a chance to see the stream when it was happening live, have no fear! You can still watch the full video!Submit Your Idea by March 31st! Moving forward, we will be awarding $20,000 in prizing to ambitious deviants for their projects on or around April 3rd. If you haven’t participated yet, there is still time! Submit your project in a comment on the Devious Dreams journal by 11:59 PM Pacific Time on March 31st, 2019, for your chance to reach your creative evolution! Submit Your Idea » Share Your Thoughts! We’d like to hear from you! Share one of your favorite project submissions in a comment on this journal, be it yours or someone else's!
Thank You for Your Feedback on Eclipse!

Last week, we announced the Beta launch of DeviantArt Eclipse — a completely redesigned version of DeviantArt that puts more emphasis on artists and their art. As a Beta release, Eclipse is still under development and only available to a small portion of the DeviantArt community. We use the Beta release to gather feedback that allows us to closely analyze deviant engagement and sentiment.

Over 4,000 deviants have already tried Eclipse and many have shared their invaluable and much-appreciated feedback. We’ve received nearly 1,700 individual Eclipse feedback reports — including 407 bug reports, 532 feature requests, and 748 pieces of general commentary. Our team has read through and triaged over 60% of these reports and has a goal of completing all of them in the coming week. Thank you to every deviant who has taken the time to share feedback. Whether you’re someone who provided a few words or several paragraphs of candid response, we appreciate the passion you have for helping us ensure Eclipse will meet the needs of our diverse community.

This Is Just the Beginning of Eclipse

As with most Beta releases, we launched Eclipse knowing there were bugs and highlighted a handful of the most obvious in our release journal. We wanted to release sooner than later so we can begin this journey together – gathering feedback and insights and applying it into our development, fixes, and improvements. Plus, as Beta Testers, this is what you signed up for! We need your deviant-expertise to help identify bugs everything from baby bugs to elusive, exotic bugs.

Based on feedback, it’s clear there are certain areas of Eclipse that are leaps and bounds ahead of the “green site.” It’s also clear there are some things that need to be improved. We expected this and continue to welcome your feedback — the good and the bad. We’re in this together and want to hear from deviants every step of the way.

We're Exploring More Ways To Customize Your Profile

Eclipse provides new ways to personalize your Profile, including the ability to select Header Art for your page, linking to your social media platforms, and stating your commission status. However, with the removal of Custom Box, we heard, loud and clear, that deviants want more options to display content.We’re also in the process of exploring other ways you can customize your Profile.We’ll be sharing tips and varied examples of ways you can really customize Profiles. In the meantime, here’s one example of how @katy-l-wood is testing Eclipse’s current abilities to enhance her Profile.
Many deviants asked for the ability to showcase a single deviation on your profile. This is something we are already working on. We’d also like to clarify that, for the foreseeable future, Custom Boxes within Groups will remain as they are. Groups will eventually be redesigned with Eclipse in mind, but that process won’t be complete for many months. We’ll provide advance notice about any removal of Custom Boxes in Groups.

Addressing Your Other Top Concerns

The new Feedback allows easy viewability of your most recent and unread notifications; however, we’ve seen concerns about Feedback needing improvement as a whole. For example, deviants report it’s cumbersome to remove notifications and it’s hard to remove notifications in bulk. We’ll be making the “remove” button more accessible so that you can one-click remove (or one-click save) just as you could on the “green site.” We’re still reviewing the experience of mass removing feedback and hope to have updates soon.We are currently working on issues regarding Header Art and avatars – specifically, their size and quality. Icon codes and plz accounts will be coming soon to Eclipse. :iconlaplz:The new text editor makes it easy to write Literature, with the option to add formatting and illustrations to your work. That said, the Literature experience in Eclipse is still a work in progress. As we mentioned in the Beta journal, using Literature and journal thumbnails is not yet finished. Literature thumbnails in the sidebar (under “More Like This”) are also not yet finished.Improving the display of Literature thumbnails is something our Product and UX teams are already actively working on improving.Having a “Show More” link on deviation descriptions and comments allows for a cleaner viewing experience; however, based on feedback, we've removed "Show More" from deviation descriptions and comments.While search in Gallery, Favourites, and Journals didn’t make it into the Beta version of Eclipse, it’s our aim to bring this functionality to Eclipse.Several deviants brought up that the ability to include thumbs by pasting a URL (or thumb code) is not currently possible. We mentioned this in the original announcement, but we want to reiterate this is not working as intended and will be implemented in the future.

Of course, this isn’t a complete list. It represents our first step at addressing some of your top concerns and we’ll be sharing more responses and updates — including bug fixes — in the weeks ahead.

Keep it Coming!

In the release process, things are constantly evolving as we gain insights and implement updates. Please keep in mind these updates can take time to get used to. As you continue to explore Eclipse, share your thoughts and concerns through the Eclipse overall feedback or bug report/feature request forms. While we encourage general discussion in the journal comments, using the official form allows us to triage and act on feedback in a quicker, more manageable way.

We also want to give a shout-out to the amazing deviants who’ve produced really thorough Eclipse reviews:

BETA TEST: DeviantArt Eclipse


As you may know, DeviantArt has been long working on a big update of our site and overall user experience. It’s been over a year of brainstorms, planning, research, interviews, testing, and more, and now we’re gearing up for a full Eclipse!

Eclipse Change Log: January 30, 2019In this week's change log, we have a small handful of bug fixes and improvements as we continue with the larger features that are in development. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming!Change LogThe "add to favorites" panel on deviation pages now allows you to select multiple collections. (Popular request, suggested by @kage-niji, @sa6044, @tanyasimpson, and many others)Bios are now editable!Literature thumbnails now include four lines of preview text. (Suggested by @wynbird, @battlefairies, and many others)On the Daily Deviations page, literature now includes preview text. Various other smaller bug fixes and stability improvementsThe new "add to favorites" panel lets you easily add a deviation to many Collections. (Artwork: hidden view by @umbatman)Literature thumbs — including on the Daily Deviations page — now include preview text.Using the New Bio EditorTry the new Eclipse bio editor! When adding a bio to your Eclipse profile, we'll start you off with your bio from the old site. Please keep in mind that some elements, such as thumbnails, were not able to be transitioned to the new editor, however you can still add them to your bio. We recommend trying the new image and gallery features to share your favorite artwork in your bio.Also note that due to migration issues, bios of deviants who are not on Eclipse are static, meaning if they update them on the old site, the changes will not be reflected on Eclipse until that deviant switches to Eclipse and edits their bio using the new editor.
