Earlier today, DeviantArt released an announcement explaining what "Core Membership Is..." To complement that announcement, I've penned a few of my own thoughts about what Core Membership means to me.
DeviantArt owes its existence to its community. The inspiring, pulsating life force that began 15 years ago with a small group of artists and art appreciators has grown more than anyone could have ever imagined. A true force of motivation and support on the Web, our community is one-of-a-kind in its service to the artistic greater good. And it always has been.
Whether you take the extra moment to answer a Note from a student of art hoping to

I still recall that day, the day when everything changed.
The day began with a call that beeped in my head.
I right clicked the answer button with my eye.
The Human Resources Director appeared in front of me. Grumpy cat stared at me from his tie. It was not good news, I figured. The Director wouldn't wear a grumpy cat tie otherwise.
"Verk, you are my old friend from college, so I'm gonna be straight up with you:
The corporation is downsizing all human workers and replacing everyone in the Service industry with Dex units and AI System apps. I suggest you start looking for
I've tended to keep my art lives separate - I write, I draw, I photograph, but I really only post my digital drawings on dA nowadays. I was going through my favorite photos from 2015 earlier today, and I wondered if I should break my own rule-of-thumb and share my photography.
Here are a few:
Would you like to see more? That's a loaded question. Of course you won't say no. How about this one.
How do you feel about dA accounts that mix different media? Do you enjoy that, or do you prefer more unity in the accounts you follow?
I have not seen an "official" DA Christmas Wish List but I like this one I found by Starblas (https://www.deviantart.com/starblas)
Make a post to your DA journal. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a ______ icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("all I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV."). The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want. If you wish for tangible items, make sure you include contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Sant
Earlier this morning I posted a journal about my original three characters for my educational brand. My goal is to transform my field art creatures into kid-friendly cartoon characters. I've decided to create guides for each one as a reference while I learn to create until I'm happy enough to print on the lesson tools. As always, I greatly appreciate critiques, ideas, and redlines. This journal is for my "bonus characters" so to speak. Their developments are still in progress so I'll probably edit this journal as I work on their character guide details.
Want to create a piece with my characters? That would be awesome! If you do, please inclu
I have an educational brand that creates tools for learning. My goal is to transform my field art creatures into kid-friendly cartoon characters. I've decided to create guides for each one as a reference while I learn to create until I'm happy enough to print on the lesson tools. As always, I greatly appreciate critiques, ideas, and redlines. Cetch the Cottontail, Felix the Fox, and Otis the Owl are my brand's Original Three - meaning they were the first woodland creatures I painted, had printed, and sold. Below is what I consider their character guide details.
