2016: Big changes at Project EducateProject Educate
Dear members,
Project Educate is an ongoing endeavor for the Community Relations team -- one we have a lot of passion for and one that we want to lead as successfully as possible. These past few months we have been analysing feedback from the community and from our own team with regards to what we've been doing well here at projecteducate and what we should consider improving upon. We'd like to roll out a series of changes in 2016 in an effort to better cater to the community and offer you all new, long overdue opportunities.
We want projecteducate to be a place where everybody feels welcome; where everybody has a chance to teach, to learn and to lead. Below you will find some of the core changes we will be implementing within the next few weeks:
Community Led Weeks:
The majority, if not all weeks at projecteducate have been led by Community Volunteers. We'd like to change that. projecteducate is a project that was made for the community; so
$5 is hardly anything for a commission, heres whyEdit: Okay, wow--If I knew this journal would get the attention that it's getting I would have tried to make it sound a bit more professional and a bit less ranty im almost a little embarrassed
I'm also really glad that so many of you could share your input and experiences. It's really important that we understand this--especially on a site with so many young, impressionable artists. It's easy for us to think that our time is only worth the end product. When i first joined this site (i was 13), the first type of commission that I took was a full picture for only 5 points. Granted--it didn't look the best. i was only 13 after all, but at the time I didn't even know the value of points. When i was about 14-15 I started looking to get more serious about my art. I wanted to make actual money off of it, so I started considering prices and i never charged anything more than $20. I was still really torn because a few people were still telling me that I was underchar

PLEASE link on the following forum thread and leave a comment regarding DA's limiting even Founders and Co-Founders to TEN submissions/invites into each group per day.

support.deviantart.com/entries…

This is severely limiting my work in DevNews!! DA's response has been that the limit is to stop "spamming" in groups. Spamming? Are they kidding? How was anyone spamming? Most groups put folder limits in their groups anyway, but in DevNews and DeviantArt-related I depend on being able to invite articles or special event works directly into the group. I favor DDs each day into the favorites at DevNews. With the limits it is severely cutting back my ability to work in the groups, as well as causing MORE work because I'll now have to go to each item and ask in a comment for something to be submitted to the group.

It affects my ability to invite in DD articles, Project Educate, DA Birthday Events, etc.! I'm very unhappy about the "Ten Submission/Invitation Limit" by all Founders/Co-Founders in ALL Groups :no:

:icontommygk:
Hello, I’m Tommy! A Canadian art lover from the land of the living skies, Saskatchewan! I am a bird loving magician who is strangely obsessed with weird/creepy things. Art has always been a part of my life as I grew up with a lot of creative and gifted family members. I love shooting photography with my Canon XSi and making stock available for other artists. I also enjoy drawing as a hobby and love working with one-on-one collaborations. I joined this place when I was still in college and was known as “StormPenguin” and grew addicted very quickly. I spent a whole term as a Gallery Moderator in the Fan Art gallery and eventually became a Communi

:iconlarienne:
My name is Karolina and I’m an illustrator who loves elves, tea, and horror. I’ve been drawing since I can remember, art has always been a huge part of my life. I joined DeviantArt years ago but it was not until the beginning of this year when I decided to truly dedicate my life to being a freelance artist. I quit my part-time job and after graduating from my university, I started dedicating 100% of my attention to art. With that I can say that this year has been revolutionary for me so far and I wouldn’t be where I am now without the continuous love and support I get from this wonderful community.
My favorite part of being a Deviant is the

Hello, my name is Erin! I’m a stock artist, seamstress, crafter, and baker, among other things, but stock is my main focus here on DeviantArt. I have been on DA since 2007, where I first learned about what stock is and had the opportunity to use stock from some of the amazing artists here. I wanted to join in on the fun, so in 2008, I made my own stock account where I’ve been partying ever since. I love the stock community! Everyone is very welcoming, patient, and giving, and I’m so proud to be a part of this group of people.
In 2012, I was given the opportunity to be a CV for my favorite gallery and I eagerly joined th

My Week Through Art: How Has Your Week Been?In 2013, we started a project called "MyWeekThroughArt" and over 1,300 Journals were submitted. Some continued to post Journals over the following weeks, and some even continued it for many months. This week, we're bringing it back!
How has your week been? Tell us through art.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Simply post a Journal entry with three deviations that represent your week (or your week to come).
Start a new Journal entry
Using the "Add Media" sidebar, search DeviantArt for three deviations that represent your week and then place them in your Journal (for example, if you went on a date this week, one of your deviations might depict two people having dinner).At the end of your Journal, add a link back to this Journal and challenge several friends. Copy
   Custom Profile Pictures Made By ArtistsFreshen up your profile by getting a custom-made Deviant ID or avatar made by one of DeviantArt's talented artists. Choose from this showcase of artists who are creating commissioned art that you can use as a profile picture on DeviantArt, Facebook, Twitter, or any of your other favorite sites. 
HOW IT WORKS
Choose a talented artist below whose style you like.
Visit their profile and choose a commission listed in their Commissions widget.
Click "Request Commission" and supply them with details on what you'd like. Be sure to read their listing in case they have restrictions or need specific details from you.While these artists are prepared to receive a high number of requests, there are only so many hours in a day. They may let you know if your request may take longer than expected. If you have any questions about timing, just ask!
Commissions are purchased with DeviantArt Points.

   Introducing the DeviantArt Muro Drip Brush

“It’s just a bunch of dribbles and it’s a mess” is the likely reaction to both a kindergartener’s first attempts with paints and to the signature works of Jackson Pollock. Of all the abstract painters, Jackson Pollock was the easiest to dismiss while, in many ways, was the most complex in the concepts he hoped to covey with his famous drip paintings.
World War II had ended and like wars before had exposed many to horrors touching the depths of the human psyche and challenging its very sense of humanity. The use of atomic weapons, firestorm bombings of major cities and the revelations of mass genocides created a new sense of anxiety for everyone. Processing these feelings was difficult. Pollock in these paintings was doing exactly that and more — an attempt to transmit anxiety with a form of visual exorcism with results that could be as beautiful as they are, at times, dark.

Celebrate 16 Years of DeviantArt
DeviantArt launched 16 years ago, providing a community of artists and art appreciators with a place to call home. Now, on August 7th, as we celebrate our Sweet Sixteen, we’re bringing a birthday celebration to our deviants around the world! From the comfort of your computer, help us celebrate the reason we’re all here today — our vibrant and inspirational community!
Standing at the cusp of Internet-adulthood, it’s always enjoyable to look back and embrace the carefree days of our artistic youth. This year, while adult coloring books are flying off the shelves nearly faster than fiction, what better way to unwind than celebrating with some coloring of your own? Using the Paint Bucket Tool in your favorite image-editing software, download our template and find inspiration and serenity in the swirling shapes.

ARTICLES AROUND THE COMMUNITY:



Community Relations Roundtable: Being a CVCommunity Week
Introduction
Ever think about joining the communityrelations team? For this Community Week, I chased down most of the CVs and made them answer some questions about what our role is really like, what type of a commitment it requires and what type of a person it takes to fill the spot well. We apologize in advance for being so wordy, but it's a subject we're passionate about! Now sit back and enjoy the dialogue. :pringles:
Who are you? What do you do outside of DeviantArt, and what kind of art do you make?
:iconqueen-kitty:
Off DeviantArt, I'm just your average girl trying to balance everything I've got on my plate (I seem to thrive on creating work for myself). For a living, I work M-F in my family's construction business answering phones, doing secretarial work, and providing tech support throughout the day. Photography is my hobby/obsession and I mainly concentrate on portrait and fashion photography. Since my job ta
   New Commission Info!Goodness, if you've ever been through the legalities of immigration you'd know the tight spot I'm in at the moment! Commissions are my only source of money while my partner and I sort through the redtape. Things are looking like they're on the right path and we're doing everything correctly! But I gotta buy groceries and pay rent and I seriously need a new pair of shoes because all the walking I do in Toronto has worn holes in my only decent ones. :lol:
Prices have gone up a bit, but I've always been on the side of artists asking for fair wages and I stand behind the quality of the work you'd be getting for these prices! Let me draw some rad heads for you!
UPDATED INFO!
These are the base prices! If you order multiple heads, each additional head after the first is 50% off! So, for example, if you buy two clean lines heads you'll only have to pay $30!


Send me a note with "commission" in the subject. Tell me how finished you'd like your headshot to be and give me any link

   Aeirmid's Fab 5 Photomanip Faves - June 17The purpose of this feature series is to support and help publicize great photomanipulation art.
These images are, in no particular order, my favorite photomanipulations that I've discovered over the past week. (They may actually have been submitted before that, and I just didn't see them.) I will also tell you why I chose these pieces. Enjoy! :heart:
"The Last Quiet Place," by ElenaDudina

The artist uses seamless, fantastic blending to create a place I really want to visit and maybe get lost in for a little while. The peace of the place feels palpable, and I really enjoy the hues that she used to enhance the feeling of peace and comfort. This is a magical work of art, and it really shows great skills in composition. Elena has really branched off with her art to create landscapes, structures, and scenery that spin the imagination. I truly adore her art, and this one is no exception. I can't believe I missed it before now!

   Artists of Waterscape Photography: Glenn-CrouchHello and welcome to an interview series that will introduce the artists of our monthly themed categories at AnimalsPlantsNature group! September is Waterscape Photography month and so we're excited to be bringing you an interview with a talented scenery photographer to get a closer look at their artwork and their thoughts behind the pieces they submits to the DeviantArt community... Glenn-Crouch!
Introducing Glenn-Crouch!


Who is Glenn-Crouch? Tell us a bit about yourself!

:iconGlenn-Crouch:
My name is Glenn and I call myself a serious hobbyist photographer. That is, I'm not a professional and I'm not trying to make money out of my photography (I'm lucky if I sell 1 or 2 prints a year). Photography has always been an interest in my life, from when I was about 8 years old and I was given a little instamatic film camera for my birthday. With the advent of digital

Hazel's other beautiful works :
   The Cursed Child - Spoilers (my opinion)I read it, and here are my first thoughts.
It should not have been easy. Almost ten years later, write a sequel and be good enough to find something that has not been written in the fandom or in other books! Personally, I was not for this sequel. For me, the 7 books were complete and I like them with their end, epilogue included.
The pluses :
-The “new” characters are interesting. I love Albus Severus and Scorpius. They are smart, funny, loyal, Slytherins and outcasts, and they are friends. Special hugs for Scorpius (open-minded and less self-centered than Al). 
-Good to meet the HP universe, the magic and humor, the Trio and Draco again (and with even more depth for Draco’s character); and happy to see Ron (I’ve always loved Ron). Good to see some old characters again, and good to not see them all (fastidious it would have been). Yes for Cedric Diggory or Dolores Umbridge’s comebacks! 
-The story explores alternate pasts and future
