Promote Commissions on Deviations and Profile
For deviants offering commissions on DeviantArt, you can now add special commission banners to your deviations and Profile! Get more exposure on your commission offerings and increase your chances to reach potential buyers. Banner Locations Similar to banners for Subscriptions, you can use this feature to promote commissions in four distinct places, with or without Core Membership. On your deviations, two banners can be added, one beneath your artwork and one in the sidebar. On your Profile, a banner can be included above your cover art. When deviants hover over your username or avatar, a banner can be added in the preview that displays there. How to Add Commission Banners Commission banners can easily be enabled and disabled from the Account Settings page. If you have banners enabled for Subscriptions, you’ll need to disable them by selecting “Your Commissions” in order for the commission banners to show. You can swap between the two sets of banners at any time. In order to

Create AI-Generated Art Fairly with DreamUp
Introducing DreamUp™, an image-generation tool powered by your prompts that allows you to visualize most anything you can DreamUp! DeviantArt DreamUp lets you create AI-art knowing that creators and their work are treated fairly. UPDATE: We heard the community feedback, and now all deviations are automatically labeled as NOT authorized for use in AI datasets. IMPORTANT: DeviantArt did not, does not, and will not use deviations submitted to DeviantArt to add to third-party AI models or training sets, or on DreamUp itself. DeviantArt did not consent to third-party technology usage of images on our site, which were used to train AI models. In an effort to combat future unauthorized usage, we have enacted “noai” — an industry-first directive alerting AI models of deviants' desires to opt out. DeviantArt is the only platform giving creators the ability to tell third-party AI datasets and models whether or not their content can be used for training. This is a protection for creators to

Cvoa the Worm by Berried-Lark, literature
Cvoa the Worm
I had said there is nothing so big in the lake of stars. Its bedding, a leap of logic weaved of dreadful- hundred undiscoverable facts passing itself off as that smaller thing: our known universe, Cvoa the Worm each is one tooth to another hanging form. Gone, adorn skies that sit unsame is: Cvoa the Worm bathysphere suns explode at the chance that heat from the self will pass over Its skin, bending forth, and setting. I had said there is nothing so fathomably It
