This is it!Today was the last day of my term as a Chat & Forums and Architecture Photography Community Volunteer. It's crazy how fast time flew by! Yet I got so used to be part of the team, it feels very strange to leave it. I've worked with a bunch of warm and supporting people! I'm deeply grateful to Moonbeam13 to have given me this opportunity to get involved with the community and try to improve the Architecture Photography gallery, as well as feature some stunning work, and keep the chats & forums safer and cleaner. It has been a great pleasure!Now that this chapter of my dA history has ended, I hope new ones will start, either through fun projects, new friends, or general deviantFUN!To new beginnings!

NEW! Architecture Photography 'Details'Dear deviants,Some time ago I asked the community in this journal entry how you all felt about some changes to the Architecture Photography gallery. A lot of discussions have been led and, ultimately, it has been decided that a Photography > Architecture > Details could be a useful addition!Today we're proud to announce that this sub-category is finally open! So what goes under Architecture details?Photographs of architectural details, close-ups, fragments, or façades that do not fully express neither an interior or an exterior of a building or structure.Examples:

Using HTML on deviantARTHello!Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking. deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place? You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.Some basic htmlBold text: <b>insert text here</b> Result: Example textThis html code will work in: journal entries, group blogs, comments, artist's commen
That's how you get pageviewsAnd here you have the number one question that people ask me:"How the hell did you get so many people to view your art? You're not even that good!"I can't do anything other than honestly admitting that I'm not that good at art. I'm not some awesomely skilled concept artist, at least. I've seen many people do a better job while receiving a lot less of attention.Why a medium like DeviantArt works for me? Probably because I've been around on the internet for so long, and I've spend so much time working for internet-marketing company's, that things like advertising and web usability have become a second nature to me. A lot of the things that I've come to regard as common sense in internet communication, are things that are nowadays proven successful by research.It's important to know that websites like DeviantArt are listed in the category social media. That probably didn't occur to most people, since DeviantArt seems to be so heavily focused towards art (and tradi
Label Me Lesbian: A Guide to Types of Lesbians [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Pink]The following is an extensive guide to the different Labels a Lesbian may have. In my experience I have come across many Lesbians who just thought they were a Lesbian. This guide was at first for TheLesbianClub's Chatroom Classes, but I have decided that this could benefit not only the club but many people out there. If you are a Lesbian and questioning what type of Lesbian you are, then this guide is for you![Bullet; Pink] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Purple] [Pride] [Bullet; Purple] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Pink] LesbianLesbian is a term most widely used in the English language to describe sexual and romantic desire between females. The word may be used as a noun, to refer to women who identify th
7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better ArtistPractice, practice, practice. Gah.Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons.

Get Puzzle'd Community Contest! 10TH BIRTHDAY BASH GET PUZZLE'D COMMUNITY CONTEST You remember what it was like. Opening a dusty cardboard box, yellowed with age, found in Grandma's attic. Dumping the 500 puzzle pieces on the kitchen table. Striving for several tedious hours to complete a picture of assorted flowers in a vase, or a kitten playing with string. Filling time until your parents picked you up from dear ol' Granny's place. Boring. Well, this puzzle is nothing like that! We're taking a fun and innovative take on a classic puzzle game, to celebrate
How to get noticed on deviantART!:faq56:I've had many people ask me this question so I'm going to elaborate the best I can. As the FAQ above states, to get far on deviantART you HAVE to give feedback to get it. It's almost virtually impossible for you to get noticed without doing any of that. I learned that after a year of being here. Browse ArtThis is something that you will have to do in your dA lifetime in order to find your inspirations and be able to learn new techniques. When on the front page of deviantART it's probably the most diverse amount of artwork you'll see! Ranging from pixels to sculptures, tattoos to anime to poems, there has to be at least one that can catch your eye! There are millions of deviants here and even more submissions! Try searching for artworks that please you. You can even have a randomized search by using stuff like the random d
Watchers Raffle #4: Win Art From Your Fav ArtistHello lovelies,No, I don't mean myself by 'your fav artist'. I'll try to explain what I mean by this title and its rules, but first, the pieces that last raffle's winners got:-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------What do you get when you win this raffle?I will pay for a commission you want from certain artist. If you want 'this artist' to draw your OC and such, I will pay said artist to draw your OC and such.

It's a good amount, but don't go crazy (hundreds of dollars crazy) with your commission.. Rules?You have to be watching me already. No

Any other suggested programs are on my list to test, thank you for your thoughts.Photoshop is a great program, but despite it's many features it's a bit pricy at $999.
