and are now working together as Affilites, if theirs anone who would like to visit that group just click on the fire-island-fan-club.deviantar…
PLEASE READOk, many people keep trying to submit deviations to the adoptables folder. PLEASE, submit to the CORRECT folder. I have to keep denying deviations because they are going in the adoptables folder.
Again, PLEASE CHANGE THE FOLDER WHEN YOU ARE SUBMITTING A DEVIATION.
SubmittingI have noticed that some people keep submitting deviations to the adoptables, bases lineart and designs, and icons folders that don't belong there. I have had to change those folders so that I can approve of what deviations go here. PLEASE submit to the right folders guys. If you don't know how, here is how.
1. Go to the gallery, click on the folder, and then click the plus sign in the top right corner
2. Go to the gallery, click the plus in the top right corner, then click the grey button at the top of the submission form. All the folders will appear and then you may choose the one you need.
If your deviations have been declined and you don't know why, its probably because you submitted it to the wrong folder. Submit it to the right one, and it will be approved.
Folders?I was wondering, are the folders working? Everyone should be able to submit to all the folders, and I keep finding deviations in the featured/wrong folder. If they aren't working, please tell me (they should be working though )
Good NewsWell, I just noticed I was randomly made the Founder. So, I changed the settings so everyone can submit art. It is automatically approved, and you can submit as many deviations as you want. Just make sure its in the right folder (I have made more for specific types of deviations).
Stuff You Should Know About
1. Please submit to the right folder. If it isn't submitted to the right one, it will get removed and you will have to submit it again.
2. Deviations with mature content are allowed, but if it goes against the pornography rules it will be removed.
3. If a folder fills up or you feel like we need another one, please tell me
4. No making fun of other deviants and deviations.
5. NO ART THEFT! Tracing, using a ref (and not linking to original), and taking something off another website is art theft! Any deviations that are stolen will be removed. ALSO, if a member of the group is stealing art, please tell me.
Now, SUBMIT ALL YOUR ART!! XD
More Art?Hi guys! Im a new Contributor to the group, and I noticed we only have 5 members. Could some of you invite your friends to the group, or at least tell them about it? It would be great if we could have more members. Also, if anyone has some art that they would like to submit to a group, submit it here. Well, thats all. Have a great day everyone
*and Im trying to figure out if I can change the gallery settings so everyone can submit art. The owner of the group doesnt use their account anymore, so i sent a note to their new one.

A new member writes:I am the photographer and principal photo editor for *aegiandyad. I seek constantly for the beauty in the mundane or even ugly reality that is the largely urban environment we live in. But we love gardens, are Friends of Kew who can visit this world heritage site any time we like, and spend a lot of time in the two or three best parks and gardens near where we live. This group's intent seems to be t0 remind deviants that art should be beautiful, as well as expressive, meaningful, individual, innovative and all the other things dear to the modern artits' hearts.
However, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Isadore Ducasse, the self-styled Compte de Lautreamont, insisted that there was beauty in the chance meeting of an umbrella and a sewing machine on an operating table! J,G.Ballard's fiction illustrates his notion that 'Mind is a state of landscape', and where others see beauty he sees psychological danger and even terror. Marcel Duchamp literally attempted to take the piss out of Fr
Using HTML on deviantART
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.

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]
Lesbian 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
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
Writing Effective DialogueWe've all struggled through figuring out how to write dialogue that not only gets the information out there, but also helps build characters or advance the plot. There are tons of books and blogs out there on the topic, too. But just reading about it doesn't do much good if we're not ready to try it out. Give it a go and see what other people think. But let's start with the basics.
What is Effective Dialogue?
Dialogue that's written well will reveal character traits, add to the tension and suspense, helps cut down on text walls of description and of course, advances your plot. One of the most important things to keep in mind when you're writing dialogue is that in fiction, your reader doesn't want to read all the mundane things we say on a regular basis. So if it's not moving the plot or adding to your character's personality, you should think about cutting it completely.
What do I mean by reveals character traits?
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.
This 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
How to draw during 365 days
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?
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. Artistically
How to beat procrastination (part 1)As I said on a previous submission, I'm planning to make some tutorials on the upcoming December. Before that, however, I feel like I can help on another subject, which comes before even starting your drawing: Procrastination. I mean, procrastination towards your own drawings.
If you're not familiar with this word:
pro-cras-ti-na-tion |prəˌkrastəˈnāSHən, prō-|
"the action of delaying or postponing something."
Why am I talking about this?
Well, a year ago I used to be a professional procrastinator. I've imposed the 365 Days of Doodles challenge to myself for this particular reason.
While procrastination is to some degree a natural phenomenon and can’t be completely eradicated, you can use the following strategies to get in the habit of getting drawings done.
Mind that these are not golden rules or such, just strategies that work fo
