New Submission Process...LIVE!
New Submission LIVE!

That right there, is a nice simple screenshot of the nice simple all new simple as pie smooth sweet silky goodness known as the all new revamped submission process that was spoken about here yesterday!
And within minutes, NAY, seconds of its launch, we had the first submission to utilize it from Dubtiger and the first deviant to check out the new resizing feature was Jaszczurka! Enjoy your 3 month subscriptions for making your mark in this bit of DA history!
And now, rather than keep you stuck here reading this news article, I will keep it short and sweet, like the new submission process itself ( sorry I couldn't resist saying it one more time ;) ) and let you guys go out and Submit some art!
Enjoy! And also, a big round of applause to randomduck and mudimba for all their hard work on this! And give yourselves a hand f

Hey everybody! I am sure you have all been wondering why the prints staff has been so quiet for the last year or so and what we are up to.
So, as an early Christmas present, the Prints staff has decided to break its vows of secrecy and silence, and reveal to you the mysteries of our department (rumors of which have echoed through the DA HQ halls for a long time now).
Since I took over as the Director of Prints last year, our first task was to evaluate the entire prints program, and identify the areas where we had problems as well as what we needed to do to improve things. Since then, we have undergone quite a few refinements, resolved a number of long term outstanding issues, and generally streamlined the entire operation.
Once that was all done, our next step was to look forward and figure out how to make the best prints program on the planet…both for artists that have art and want to sell it, and for buyers that are looking for original and unique art.
Our manifesto can be summe

ArtistsForCharity Makes First Donation
ArtistsForCharity and deviantART Inc. are glad to announce that the first donation to the chosen charity, UNICEF, has been made. We've raised $1000 so far, which is a great achievement for all involved.
ArtistsForCharity has sold a fantastic 127 prints to date, with all the profits going straight to UNICEF. deviantART Inc. is then matching those profits, like for like, to double the amount going straight to the charity.
As we've now reached the first $1000 goal, a new charity will be selected to replace UNICEF and benefit from this project. Our next goal is to raise $2500 for this next charity, and we hope to reach this before Christmas. So we ask for donations from seniors and non-seniors alike. Lets make this get even bigger and better as it is all for a good cause. If interested please contact ArtistsForCharity or any of the aFc staff.
So what's been selling? These are the current top prints from within the project:

Well, time for another update.

I recently started to experiment with making film photos again, instead of digital. I first used my girlfriends EOS300, because I can use all my EF lenses with that camera. I also borrowed a Canon TX from her which used to belong to her uncle who passed away some years ago. She made some photos with it, but it wasn't used for quite a while.

It came with a 50mm 1.8 S.C., 400mm 5.6, a macro extender, and an external flash. I recently purchased a 24mm 2.8 S.S.C. and a 135mm 3.5 S.C. which I can use on the TX. Maybe I'll buy another FD camera in the future. A Canon F1 if I think it's worth the money. ;) Or another EOS film camera, because auto-focus is really, really handy!

Anyway, as you can see I've uploaded some photos made with the EOS300. I'll upload some photos made with the TX in the near future.
