deviantART is not deleting accounts.Hey guys! There's a bit of a nasty rumor spreading throughout the community that the staff will be removing 'wasted'  accounts on May 21st, and that you should copy and paste the 'warning' to your journal if you want your account to be safe from deletion. This is totally false and should not be spread around dA. If you happen to see a misinformed deviant sharing that information in their journal feel free to link them to my journal here. :)
Any official dA news will be announced at hq. If you're receiving notes or comments about this false mass-deletion from an individual claiming to be deviantART staff, please block them and report them to the helpdesk. Thanks guys!

Artisan Crafts and Body Art News and Groups


Putting the 'Art' in Artisan :: CakeUpStudioOften when I'm hunting for brand new artists to feature, simply giving a DD to one of their pieces just doesn't feel like enough. Some artists just have galleries full of the most skilled crafts I've ever seen and I want to give them all DDs. Constantly. For forever. 
Apparently I'm not allowed to do that. So I'm starting a brand new bi-weekly feature series instead. This one, instead of showing a range of artists, will focus on one artist and showcase some of the wonderful pieces of art I just feel lucky to behold, but also deserve loads more attention. 
~~~
I seem to kick off every feature series with food art, so let this be no exception. CakeUpStudio is a relatively new member to our deviantART community. But 5 months in, this wonderful baker from Poland has given our eyes plenty of gems to feast over. Whether it's the attention to detail, or the simple joy that each of her creations exudes, her gallery is a pleasure to browse through.
Artisan Crafts vol.05Here's some pieces that I've noticed recently or that were suggested to me from the Artisan Crafts Galleries.

Chats and Forums


Forum Features #42 - March: Spring!Once again, the Community Relations team is here to feature the artworks of deviantART's beloved forumers! :la:
Once a month, we select one active member from the forums and we feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.
As we're kind (and awesome), we also decided to give an opportunity for everybody to get featured! Every month, we create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a particular theme. This thread is made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs of your artwork that match the theme and, at the end of the month, we select our favorite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article. :)
The best thing is that being an active member of the forums is the only requirement!
Featured Forumer of the Month: Aitheos.

Fan Art :: Prints / Sales / Requests:bulletblue: First of all! Thank you for the love ya'll have shown me on my recent kpop fan art! It's so much fun to do these drawings, yet if you'd asked me a year ago I would have stubbornly stated that "I just don't do portraits!"
:bulletpurple: What started off as 12 Exo portraits for me to keep, has turned into a drawing addiction that has me revisiting my local art store far too often to replace charcoal/fixative/ and paper. However, I've been unemployed for almost 2 years and about to graduate from college... so ... I don't even know how I've been keeping this up. In order to continue, and enjoy this development with my drawings, I've decided to take advantage of the printshop available through DeviantArt. Yes, they take a cut of the funds, but to be honest, they make the prints and ship them to you so I'm not about to complain when they've cut my work down for me.
Standard Pricing for Prints through DA ($ USD)

5x7" - $7.00
8x10" - $12.00

Some things to consider:What kind of relationship is it? (No, "relationship" doesn't have to mean "romance.")Who/what is it between?Is the development positive/negative?
The relationship must be noticeably changed at the end.Distance/death don't count if they're still besties or whatever.I don't mean changed personalities. I mean a changed relationship.
Plausible but (currently) nonexistent technology must be integral to the development of this relationship.Time travel goes forward.Nothing goes faster than light, a

This year in 2014, this international celebration which aims to promote awareness, education, and action in order to help preserve and protect our Nature on Earth, falls on Tuesday, April 22nd!
Our Group has been expanding for over a year now, via several types of efforts, in an attempt to reflect that not only do we love and enjoy the beauty of Nature, but that we also care about protecting and preserving it, and would like to seek ways to join with others to do so, and learn about and create better ideas for this!
There are so many environmental issues, which do, in fact, adversely affect Earth, our common home.
Sometimes, it can seem over
Project AWW Journalupdated 15.04.2014
Please don't forget to fave this journal, so more people will see all the wonderful Angels :hug: Thanks a lot :D
Angels will be awarded every 1st  Weekend of a month.


It was 1st and 3rd weekend till March, but, we want to pay tribute to the fact, that many of us have gardening season coming up and as well like to spend more time outside than in front of a pc :)

Here you will find a compilation about Project Angels without wings short AWW.
AWW is a project I started back in 2008 and it was running with good success
until I went off dA for quite a long time. But, as I love this project I had
to revive it sooner or later.
About how to suggest Angels, and to whom, who are the Gangstas of Love,
who kindly  feature the awarded Angels every fortnight, the icons of all
already awarded Angels and what else you might want to know :D (Big Grin)


For all the Angels

Did You Know - Scheduled SubmissionScheduled Submission
Premium Members are able to schedule their submissions. This is extremely helpful if you do regular articles or if you are away for some time, but still need to post things. Or, if you are like me and tend to forget things, and want to make sure that certain submissions will be posted at a special day/time.
Scheduled submit is possible for journals and deviations.
First thing you have to do, is to prepare your deviation. If you have done so in Sta.sh click the "Submit to deviantART" to get to the actual submission page.  If you have added your deviation via "Submit Art" from the menu you are already there.
At the top right you can then see the "Schedule" button.

To be able to schedule the submission, it is required to select a valid category and to define whether it is mature content or not. If you don't do that and want to schedule the submission you will end up with a short message like this:
Did You Know - PointsPoints
Points are dA's own currency, introduced in March 2010, that can be used in various ways within deviantART only.
The about page will give you a quick overview of what you can do with points already. There you will also find the rules for points - something worth to take a look at.
Before we go into details about what you can do with points, where you can get them etc, let's talk about their value.
80 :points: = 1$
That's how it is. Not more, not less. So when someone is doing commissions for 100 :points:, it doesn't mean that they want you to pay 100$. In fact you would only pay a little over 1$.
This is something you should always keep in mind. Especially when you think that someone charges too much for their work.
How to get points?
There are several ways how you can get points.
   • buying points yourself
   • accepting c

dArp: Glitter and SparklesFor some it's the worst stuff ever and others just like to use those little light catching pieces to decorate gifts, artworks or maybe even friends a bit. As a glitter lover (mostly to annoy friends :B) it was about time we get a dArp feature done for it as well!
So here we go and make sure to share all the glitter with me! There can never be enough.

Emoticon Appreciation Day - collecting ideasThe Emoticon Appreciation day is in a few weeks (on May 12) and I wanted to know what kind of Events you would like to see. Are there any Events from last year that you want to see again. Is there something you don't want to see?  Do you have any new ideas? :dummy:
1. I had the idea of an Emoticon/deviantArt related pictionary via livestream.  I would be drawing and the viewers have to guess what I am drawing.  The Chat would be on deviantArt.  I still have to test if it works at all. :P
2. I also thought about hosting small challenges on the day, where you have 1-2 hours to create your Emote. The Journals will be scheduled (they will posted every 1-2 hours) and to enter the challenge you have to post it within 2 hours on the journal. 
I am looking forward to your ideas. :meow:

Interviews, Editorials and Instructional Information


Digital Minds - Interview with CrickatooWelcome to Digital Minds, a new interview series focused on the incredible digital artists here on deviantART.  Today I am interviewing Crickatoo and I hope you will find her insights valuable.  
Thank you for taking the time to let me interview you, can you please tell everyone a little bit about yourself?
Hi and thanks for having me! I'm Ashley and I'm an art student in northern California, majoring in visual development:) (Smile) My work is largely made up of animals and creature designs set in fantasy and surreal worlds. Still learning a heck of a lot. 
How did you find deviantART and what keeps you here?
I initially found dA through a friend on neopets Giggle and I think that was around version 3? A lot has changed! W
Awesome Con DC PreparationsI'm promoting this to Deviant Events because I feel that a comic convention in Washington DC is worth the extra attention as opposed to a "personal" journal!
It's that time, when DC's convention is this weekend as of this writing! :party: Come to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. during April 18-20 and come see me at Awesome Con DC. This convention is boasting a lot of star power, and look for me in the Artist's section at table F8, which is almost on the exact opposite wall from the bathrooms and the kids zone. To put it into perspective, here is the map:
http://awesomecondc.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/20x24_ExpoHall_Map2.png
CLICK IT! You might need to wait a minute for it to load. When you see the map, look for the big F in the circle. The 8 should be right next to the circle. THAT is where you will find me! Also, because you'll be buying from me in-person, FREE SIGNATURES! :party:

Skin.I love the way life leaves its mark on our bodies.
Every laugh and smile etched in the crinkles around your eyes and mouth;
Those tan-lines the time you forgot about sunscreen
Because you were so hell-bent on reaching that mountain peak
Or when you just became lost in the gentle lap of waves at the shore;
The scars you got skateboarding in the park at summer dusk
Or when life became pain and it was your only release.
Our bodies are a record of our memories and experiences
They are our travel journals and emotional diaries
Our delicate armour to the elements.
And no matter its colour, its stature, if it's not quite intact
If you sometimes think it takes up too much space, or if it has pointy corners
Your body is the vessel for your soul, and every wonderful facet of who you are
Sparkles from the surface of your skin.
Skin that may grow to be wrinkled, tanned, scarred, well lived-in
Although not always embraced by you the way that others embrace it.
But do.

People and Portraits ExposedSince the People and Portrait Galleries on deviantART are so expansive and vast, I get a lot of Daily Deviation suggestions on an almost daily basis for just those sub-categories. Of course, 3wyl and I can't feature them all - so this is what this article is about. Every fortnight I try and choose a selection of the images that have been sent in and share them in a feature. This week the suggestions come courtesy of  StormAhead, :devhomunculus888 and ABipolarTeddyBear plus a couple of awesome pieces I found myself. Do keep the suggestions coming - send them via note to either myself or 3wyl.
As most of you know, 3wyl and I take care of most of the sub-categories of the People and Portrait Gallery for Photography. However there are a few specialist CVs to send some specific suggestions to! They all have recent articles which explore the areas they cover:

iPhone LensbabyI hope everyone had a great weekend!  I went to a Bachelorette Party for a friend over the weekend.  I may have partied a little too hard, since I spent all of Saturday hungover.  I'm feeling fine now, except I threw up so many times on Saturday that I still have sore muscles from vomiting!  It hurts to breathe, it hurts to cough, it hurts to laugh!  Haha, but I did have a good time! 
So if you've been following me for awhile, you know that I take a lot of pictures with my Lensbaby lenses.  Lensbabies are selective focus lenses that you can bend, push and pull to get different creative effects for your photos!

Hints and Tips #1Hello and welcome to the first instalments of 'Hints & Tips' and 
I hope these short and simple Tutorials will help boost and
inspire YOU to learn and create your own works in the many 
forms and mediums that you may work in.
SO... The first Hint/Tip is -
FIXING WARPED FINISHED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
(lumpy or uneven surface)

STEPS
1- The warped painting
2 - Turn the painting around and cover the back
with plenty of water from corner to corner
3- Place in a large hardback book between blank pages
4- Close the book and place something heavy on it and wait 
30 to 50 minutes so that the pages absorb the moisture
5- You open the book and the painting is flat

=to show that it doesn't remove paint, here is the finished piece=
I hope this helps
Bye :wave:
New Blog Series: Handy Hints + Tips!As always projecteducate is ever evolving and developing new ways to allow Deviants to get involved whilst not having to tackle the (sometimes daunting!) task of writing a full length article, or taking on a whole seven days of Education! Therefore the Handy Hints & Tips Blog Series has begun!
What's the Idea?
Some of us love reading long articles, but many of us prefer to be able to read something short, concise and to the point perhaps including an image to illustrate the point - but nothing more. So the idea is that members of the Community Volunteer team and of the wider deviantART Community (YOU!) can start blogging a handy hint or tip related to Art or deviantART, via our blog.
How can I get involved?
All you need to do is note the projecteducate group with your Hint or Tip! This is so that we can be sure we don't have any double-posting going on and we'll always work with you to adapt your idea if someone else has proposed

A Call For HelpDear friends,
I am reaching out to you today because life put me in a very unfortunate situation. I wrote about it in my journal.
In a nutshell: Since a few years I live in a small community. Now the landlord filed a lawsuit because he wants us out. We always paid the rent and maintained the house so there is no legal reason for it. But he uses a loophole in the contract. He claims that he hasn't given me as the main tenant the permission to sublease though this was the base of our agreement from the beginning because we started as a group of people sharing the house and that never changed. There are several witnesses for that. But against all odds he won in the first instance because I could not show a WRITTEN permission in the court hearing and the witnesses weren't heard. My whole existence is at stake. I appealed now to the next higher authority but this is costly and I am th
Weekly Hunt #121Every Friday, there will be a 'Hunt' for either the Most or the Least of something or other. It's a weekly (hopefully) fun activity, open to all, that will get you scouring deviantART for the best possible piece that fits the 'Hunt'.
The person who suggests the best piece will get four of their art pieces featured on our page and, in return, the piece itself will also be featured on dAseniors' front page!
Please suggest up to 2 pieces to this folder, not on this journal!
(It will be automatically approved, so make sure you submit wisely. Ohm... Ohm...)
Last time, we had the most...

SA Interview - KristenSporkCongratulations to KristenSpork for receiving seniority on December 31st, 2013! :squee:

What is it like to be a part of the senior hut? How do you feel about receiving the Medal? How did you receive the news?
I am honored to have been chosen as a senior! I truly appreciate it. DeviantART has been a big part of my life since 2005; from the people I met in the beginning, the ones who endured me on dAmn throughout my high school years, to the people I've met since. Many of them have stuck around all these years, and I have formed some very close, enjoyable relationships with them. Away from the chats, the amount of incredible art I have discovered just this past year has been staggering. I am overjoyed to be a part of this community of artists and art lovers, and hope to continue to promote both of these as best I can for years to co

Traditional Gallery and Groups


Traditional Tuesdays #70**WARNING:Viewing these works of art may cause giddiness, elevated heart rates, and happiness in the pants(which could lead to blindness)! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!**
After a few weeks off, I'd like to welcome you back, to the seventieth edition of this article. The first Traditional Tuesdays feature came out on Nov. 15 2011, and I can honestly say that I didn't think it would last this long. The night I started this feature, I was bored and just browsing around the Traditional Gallery. I was finding all kinds great artwork, that for one reason or another I couldn't/wouldn't give a DD. It could be because they had a DD recently, but mainly it was for a link to go back and see what they created next, and if they took it to the next level. Now it's more for artwork that I no longer have time to DD, I can't DD everything! I still find the article fun to do, and I'll keep doing it until it no longer is. So.... here is eighteen works of art that I thought you should see. I can't t

Senior Support Stamp Contest

Welcome to our second event for Senior Week at projecteducate!
This Senior Support Stamp contest was inspired by the CR Stamp Project which took place in April last year.
This contest is open to everyone, not just Senior Members!



Prompt


The point of this contest is to create a support stamp for your favorite Senior Member(s)! Pick any of us that you'd like! Show your support for our various projects, talents, hobbies, personalities, services, or contributions! :aww:

Rules


  • Stamp must contain the username of a Senior Member (distinguishable by the symbol).
  • Do not include the words "I support" in your stamp's text! Make it unique and special to the Senior Member you're featuring (e.g. "Astrikos is awesome!", "I miss winehaus!", "IceXDragon for Deviousness!").
  • Submit your stamp to the Senior Support Stamp Contest folder in projecteducate's gallery! We won't count your stamp as an entry for this contest if it does not appear in this folder by the deadline! You must be a member of projecteducate in order to submit to our gallery.


Prizes


Judging will be based on 3 areas, and we will have 3 winners (one for each area):
  • Most Creative Stamp
  • Best Animated Stamp
  • Best Static Stamp

The winner for each area will receive 600 :points: each, courtesy of deviantART!


Deadline


  • The deadline to submit your stamp to the Senior Support Stamp Contest folder is Friday, April 18th at 11:59:59pm (Los Angeles Time). If you submit your stamp into the folder for voting by a projecteducate admin, we will still count your entry valid if the vote doesn't occur before the deadline. As long as you've submitted it before that time. :)



Good luck, and have fun! We all appreciate your support!
