Promote a Gallery on your deviations!
Add a Gallery Section to your deviations to promote your art! Install the Gallery Section on any of your deviation pages by clicking the “Add Gallery” option to start customizing. You can select your Featured Gallery, Latest Deviations, Adopted Deviations, Buy My Adoptables, or any Gallery or Collection you’ve created. Promote the other pages of your comic, lead viewers to the rest of a photo set or series, or showcase other deviations you have for sale. How you use it is up to you! Gallery Sections are a Core feature. All deviants can preview how it will look, but the preview will only be visible to you. If your Core Membership lapses, your Gallery Section settings will be saved so you don’t have to redo anything when you reactivate Core later. Try it now: View My Gallery or Upgrade to Core

Drawtober 2023: Draw every day in October!
Create and submit artwork each day throughout October to earn up to three badges for your Profile! Drawtober is an art community tradition that encourages artists to create a new piece of art each day for the entire month of October. The goal isn’t to make your best artwork possible each day, but instead to inspire creativity, to help practice and hone skills, and to build good creative habits. For Drawtober 2023, DeviantArt has compiled a list of prompts for you to use as a starting point for each day. Having said that, you should let your imagination and creativity guide you. If you’re feeling particularly inspired to make an idea that doesn’t match with that day’s theme, create what you’re feeling inspired to create! Drawtober Prompts 1. Spooky 2. Pumpkin 3. Cityscapes 4. Corn 5. Pumpkin Pie 6. Origami 7. Treats 8. Orange 9. Tangle 10. Possessed 11. Nightmare 12. Scream 13. Thirteen 14. Moon 15. Graveyard 16. Scarecrow 17. Spiderman 18. Zombie 19.

You’ll love this handpicked collection of adoptables, so consider buying some of their work! @MagicalEGirl “Hello, I’m MagicalEGirl, and I design adoptable outfits. My love for design started at a young age, and discovering DeviantArt later on gave me a platform to showcase my art. I started posting my original characters and designs, and as many people gave support and showed interest in them, I decided to become MagicalEGirl and dedicate this account to adoptables! “My purpose is to design outfits that inspire people and make their imagination flow—outfits that tell a story just by looking at them!” See more in @MagicalEGirl's Shop @Amepan “The DA community has helped me over the years to grow as a self-taught artist and to be free and confident with the variety of my art style. Even as a shy person, it has allowed me to
