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
How to get better at artPeople keep asking me what programs i use, and what program is the best for drawing and what brushes i used for this artwork or that. Those are legitimate questions, sure, but not entirely accurate. There are differences between programs and brushes, but in the end, they are all tools. They are tools artists use to put their imagination onto a canvas. Just like a traditional artist can use 10 different brushes to paint an artwork, or just one single brush, digital art is the same in that regard. There is no one brush that can achieve an effect that none other can. Sure it's a little more difficult if you're using one brush type to draw everything, but not impossible. Artists might have hundreds of brushes in Photoshop but in truth, we use 2-5 brushes the most and those hundreds only in special cases. I personally use a hard brush and a soft brush for 90% of things, what i do change is the opacity and turn the pressure on and off, change the size etc.

Troll pollution?What's up with all the troll accounts of really bad taste lately?
I wish dA would simply ban these people, when they are polluting this site on purpose and act like total jerks screaming for attention? (I mean, it's not even funny at all.) There are these people I have to keep reporting, since they upload commissioned works and my clients are really unhappy about it. Once it gets taken down, I have to report it AGAIN AND AGAIN since it get reposted again!? I have MUCH better things to do than deal with kids like this.
And they accuse the real artists to steal from them when the trust is so obvious? What kind of trolling is that, are they even trying?
And the death threat jokes...
This have gone way too far beyond stupidity x__x
I'm not sure if people realise they can get in LEGIT trouble for doing things like this? (but they are probably too young and ignorant to care) are they really that desperate and have nothing better and productive to do? That's really... sad.
Now it's just extre
White knightsI haven't spend much time on my computer last weekend, but enough to see that DeviantArt was kept busy by a troll that apparently did really well for as much as trolls can 'do well' on the internet. A little over 4000 pageviews in just 4 days the account is online proved not only the artists involved in the matter took offense... but apparently a lot of other DeviantArt members as well. Even those that seemed (to me at least) totally uninvolved with the troll or the particular type of art.
For those that wonder about the issue; It's about Foxbun's rather cynical joke about the 'closed species' matter. (I'm usually against name calling here. But this account has intentionally created for its goal. It has been all over the site already and would've been in the comments within 10 minutes, even without me mentioning here. I don't provide a link, though. Use your search engine if you want to research it.)
The term white knight is to most older members of DeviantArt (or the interne
Art and overthinkingDear, deviantart fellow artists
There are times when everything goes well, but sometimes It's so easy to let those thoughts (whether caused by fear, life, problems etc.) to overcome your wilingness to do anything. So we let ourselves to get distracted, even though that's not what we really want to do. It's just easier. But we should not let overthinking to stand in our way.
People do tend to overthink all the time. Worrying about unimportant things, while doing nothing about solving actual problems. If there is anything that you think constantly about, that needs to be done - don't put it away till the later. It will only get worse. So often do we regret our decisions in the past, yet we are the only ones who can impact our future.
People also crave for disctractions. That's why probably social media sites are so popular these days. Watching youtube videos all day - It's inspiring to see how other people get success
The most amazing thing happened today!This morning, a guy rand my doorbell and i thought that was a little weird because i wasn't expecting anyone. He said he has a delivery for me with 2 tubes from deviantART. I was really surprised because i didn't remember giving my address (it was such a long time ago that i did probably) or didn't remember ordering anything and only until i opened them did i realize they were print gifts from my wishlist! But i have no idea who sent them :icontearyguyplz: They were both prints of this artwork
and i am not sure if there were too separate people who sent them (they appear to have been sent at different times) or one person. BUT WHOEVER YOU ARE THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU WONDERFUL PERSON!
The prints are amazing looking! Kudos to deviantART because the quality of the print is astonishing the prints are on material not paper and that not only makes them more durable but it also has a very neat oil painting feel to it.
This just made my week! I will
