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:

DeviantArtist QuestionnaireHappy 15th birthday to DeviantArt! Who doesn't like a good quiz? How long have you been on DeviantArt?- 11 years!What does your username mean?- The Blue part comes from well when I dyed by hair blue at 12 my dad started calling me Blue. It miiiight also be my favourite colour The Destiny part I chose because I like the idea of destiny, where as fate is predetermined, you carve your own destiny, a meaningful path you have agency over. Describe yourself in three words.- Creative, Resilient, Growing.Are you left or right handed?- Right. My handwriting is actually pretty terrible What was your first deviation? A Final Fantasy IX Oekaki! I still kind of like it XD I thought I was bad to colouring because I spent ages choosing the colours XDWhat is your favourite type of art to create?- Art with meaning. To connect and talk through my drawings means so much to me If you could
QuestionnaireNow that BronyCon is over, I finally got a chance to check my inbox and I was overwhelmed (and overjoyed!) by all the mentions that I had from other people including me in their own questionnaire. Thank you so much! I was so happy reading each of your responses I was asked to participate in this event so here are my answers (fashionably late of course)!How long have you been on DeviantArt?I've been on DeviantArt for 11 years. I was pretty inactive for too much of that time which is unfortunate because I feel like I lost out on a lot of the community growth. Since 2009, I've tried to maintain a more active role in sharing art, support, and positive engagement.What does your username mean?It actually doesn't mean anything - just a silly name I've had for a long time and I can't shake it now even if I wanted to. The most frequent issue I get with the name is its pronunciation. It is "sow" "shin" Describe yourself in three words.
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
DeviantArtist QuestionnaireHow long have you been on DeviantArt?As a member? 8 years.As a lurker, far longer. Probably since the early 00's.What does your username mean?It has no real meaning, but is something I made up.Mikaz is slightly based on an old project of mine, called Mirikata. As much of a bunch of lazy bums my sisters and I were, we always used Mika as a shorthand when referring to the project. The Z at the end was added for extra coolness. Because, remember, this was the internet during the early 00's when adding a Z at the end of everything still was insanely cool. Unfortunately the name Mikaz was taken on a lot of internet websites already, so I added Damai (my real name, minus 2 letters) in front of it. It then looked like a real first- and last name so much that people often asked it was my real name. I kinda liked that so I've kept up with then nickname ever since.
A good opportunity to say some things about myselfI stopped having time to do tag journals long ago () but I'll take a break from my SFM project to do this thing before it's too late....... might as well get the badge, lol. This will be a trip down memory lane!! If you are easily made jealous, it'd be best to skip this now, since this will be about me and my journey on DA.1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? I've browsed DeviantArt for about 10 years, but I officially registered 7 years ago on Aug 19, 2008. Back then, browsing through search results was different. It was just a certain number of pictures per page, rather than the continuous scrolling thing now. If you had an account, you could display more images per page (up to 128) so that made things easier. However, by the time I got around to finally registering...... DeviantArt moved that option to Premium Members (R.I.P.) only. I've had a lovely relationship with DA s
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
That one lie we all believe..."If I had more talent, more popularity or more followers, I would be happier"If I got a dollar for every time I've heard somebody say that, I would probably be a millionaire right now. And in all honesty, hearing things like that irk me, knowing how untrue they are.From early on in life we we get to hear this lie. Be a good kid, get good grades in school, enroll into a prestigious university and get a proper job at some big company.... that'll pave your way to happiness. Life (in the western world, at least) has never been more equal in the opportunity's we get, yet the rates of people suffering from depression and anxiety has never been so high. Why? Because happiness isn't in the things we posses. It's in our mind.Let's say you wake up one day in your own success story. You're madly talented and have a million followers.Do you think that would magically wipe away those self conscious thoughts you've had for years? Do you think it would silence that voice in your head that
