Spyed Interview With Cnet
"Yet, despite laying claim to being "the largest online social network for artists," it's likely that most people have never even heard of the site.
Now, CEO Sotira has decided to do something about that. He plans on undertaking what could be the site's first major marketing push in an effort to become more mainstream."

What do you remember of your childhood in regards to art?
:boogie: I LOVED colouring books and when I was in grade 8 I painted my first painting using oil painting.
Was there anything or anyone in particular that prompted your choice of art form?
:boogie: Yes. Whenever me and my family went to trips or vacations, I always loved to record those wonderful memories. When Nokia phones started introducing cameras into their devices I used the

They are good to feature upcoming Events/Contests, for Interviews and to feature Deviations.(Feature Journals should include more than deviations, they should explain why something was featured.)
In the past many Emoticon-related News articles have been written, if you want to find these Articles you should browse the 'News article list' on Emotication

Here are some tips, what you have to keep in mind if you want to start a successful News article series.

What is a project?
An emoticon project is a free to enter mass collaboration between emoticonists. Projects usually revolve around a set theme or background and allow emoticonists (old and new) to make entries to be added to the main project base. Some projects require your entry to fit certain requirements or use set bases to allow the entries to fit together in the final deviation.
Project Gallery
With the latest updates to categories, the emoticon gallery was given a section devoted entirely to projects. These allow you to upload your project bases and entries in a separate section of the emoticon gallery.

Interview: Amigurumi
As part of the Dolls, Plushies & Toys Week I am posting interviews and features, there will also be contributions from other galleries as part of this week, check them out here.
Today's Special is all about Amigurumis.
What is an Amigurumi?
Amigurumis are small corcheted or knitted dolls/plushies. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.
Here is an example of fantastic amigurumis to be found in the Dolls, Plushies & Toys gallery:

Today I would like to introduce five of the best amigurumi makers here on dA! If you check out the Dolls, Plushies & Toys gallery, you will find an abundance of stunning works from a variety of great artisans.

Project Educate: How to - Emoticon Contests
This News Article is powered by dAemotes :icondummywooplz:
The Content of this Article has been written by Synfull :heart:
Taking part in Contests
Taking part in contests is a brilliant way to integrate yourself into the emote community and test your skills of imagination and pixelling against other emoticonists. Contests allow you to work on ideas and effects along a set theme and learn things from other entries.
Don't be put off if you are unsuccessful in contests or feel you have 'no chance' at winning. The taking part will really help you improve and help you to get noticed by older members of the community.
Finding Contests
As contests can be run by everyone and anyone is sometimes hard to track them down. However, certain groups and members of the community help out by posting lists and information to point you in the right direction.

December: Acts of Kindness
This was released early since I'll be jam packed with school finals soon!
:iconsayhiplz: My name is Jade, otherwise known as MzzAzn. Every month I do a few Acts of Kindness (AOK) to help spread the love around Deviantart! :dalove:
December is the month of celebrating the holidays. I love to give and I made a huge goal for myself. Since there are 31 days in December, I would do 31 Acts of Kindness (other than llama giving, etc). :la: I thought I would have a heart attack doing this, but after starting the acts, it didn't turn out to be too stressful at all! :D
These are the deserving 31 Deviants who were affected by the Acts of Kindness this month! They are in no specific order :)
:heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Be A Spark Challenge
:wizardhat: EDIT:
Even though the contest portion of this has long come to an end, the challenge remains for all those who wish to accept it. :wizardhat:
Life has its way of holding you back. We are each presented with a varying number of challenges that test who we are. Will you sit and watch life carry on because you don't think you are worthy, capable, beautiful, or intelligent enough or will you find that...
within yourself to rise above?
You can make the whole world a brighter place.
I challenge you to create a Traditional, Digital, Photography, Artisan Crafts or Literature piece that embraces who you are.
What is your spark? How do you rise above challenges and ignite the world? Have you shown another his or her spark?
Interpretation is entirely up to you.
