Holiday Card Project 2015!
The DeviantArt #HolidayCardProject is back for its 9th year!  With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In the past few years, this project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards are then divvied up and distributed by DeviantArt members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for DeviantArt volunteers and hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who sends in

November Deviousness! Ry-Spirit

Celebrating Deviousness - November 2015

In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
Introducing Ry-Spirit
My name Ry/Ry-Spirit. I was born in Hong Kong and moved to Australia when I was 8. It was tough moving to a whole new country in a new school not knowing anyone or a single word of English. It wasn't like I didn't want to make friends but I just didn't know how to start. But something helped with that.... art! It helped me break my shyness as well as giving me the confidence to keep pushing forward. I remember this one time, I had to leave in the middle of class to do something, the next day my friend who was in the class said the teacher (Mr Newton) told the whole class after I left, he said 'Ry, remember that name, he will be a famous artist one day.' That comment really stuck with me and motivated me to become

This preview is available to a small group of new deviants, as well as Core Members who were Beta Testers as of November 11th.  We will continue to add deviants to the preview group in the coming days and weeks.
The heart of the DeviantArt experience is based on viewing and interacting with the art and activity from the deviants and groups you watch. Today, we’re providing an early preview into Watch 2.0 — where we’ve taken the activities deviants do most and built an experience geared toward exactly those actions.
Please keep in mind that this is an early Beta Preview. You are likely to encounter bugs and functions that are still being worked on.

   Meet the Fractal Community #22Community Week
Hello and welcome to the 22nd edition of Meet the Fractal Community, a series of interviews to highlight our beloved fractalists!
Today, let's have a chat with BoxTail
Hello BoxTail! How are you today?
Hey there, I'm fine, just lazy enough not to clean my glasses.
Can you introduce yourself?
Dude living in southern Finland, known as BoxTail or Jan. I've been on DeviantArt for 5 years, but started to be active 3 years ago when I discovered fractal art. As a fractalist, I mostly do structured fractals but enjoy other techniques as well.
How did you discover Fractal Art?
I discovered fractal art and thought of it as being a chaotic mess. At the time I was working to get a college media diploma and wanted to represent the internet through visual art. Some googling happened to take me to DeviantArt and discovered this odd Apophysis program. I downloaded Apophysis and

As you can see with this photo, the middle area of the photo is the Horizon Line and you cannot see anything else past it. It's where your eye level is at currently as the clouds above is basically the Worm's Eye View while looking at the road below you is a se

While heavenriver already explained how to "behave" if you want to be a fractal artist, I will give you an insight on what to use and when.
What kind of tools do I need to make a fractal?
Let's see the most common!
You need...a fractal software!
Sounds obvious, but need a specific kind of software to make fractals! There are many out there, some famous, some obscure. Literally, there's the right fractal program for each of us! :D Some of the most used are:

   Tips For aquatic PhotographyAnimal, Plants, & Nature Week
Some of the most magical photos are of our aquatic friends. Here are some tips to help you capture these amazing creatures.
General Aquarium Guidelines
The aquarium is a public place and is often crowded. Getting there when it opens or towards the later evening will better your chances of having an unobstructed and unrestricted view of the tanks. 
If you go during busy hours, make sure to be courteous and careful. Do not 'hog' the tank. Take a few snaps, step back and let others see the tanks. If it is crowded, you will have to wait your turn. Crowded areas will not only provide obstacles for taking photos, but also pose a risk to your camera. Keep a tight grip on it with the strap around your neck. You can be easily jostled or have the camera stolen from you in a crowd.
Photographing Through Vertical Tanks
These tanks are the most numerous and the most difficult to shoot throu
   Coloured pencilsColoured pencils
A coloured pencils is an art medium constructed of a narrow, pigmented core encased in a wooden cylindrical case. Unlike graphite, coloured pencil's cores are wax- or oil-based and contain varying proportions of pigments, additives, and binding agents. You can also buy watercolour or pastel pencils.
Coloured pencils are popular art medium for lots of artists. They offer easy and detailed work with all kinds of traditional art. Despite some peoples opinion - every coloured pencil brand is different and has their own pros and cons. I have tested many of coloured pencils so I can tell you my own feelings and recommendations. I listed only the best pencil brands - I hope it would help you to learn and understand them if you want to purchase some.

Is one of the largest and oldest manufacturer of art supplies. Founded in 1761 at Stein near Nuremberg (Germany) by cabinet maker Kaspar Faber.

   Fluffy Water: A Guide to Long Exposure WaterscapesAnimals, Plants & Nature Week
Most of you nature photographers will have seen long-exposed waterscapes resulting in the peculiar soft aspect of water. If you haven't, or if you're not a nature photographer, here are a few examples:
In this article I will be sharing some ideas and tips which hopefully will get you interested in this kind of photography first of all; and if that marvellous personal paradigm shift takes place within you, give you the basics in achieving the sought-after results.
Who am I to dare do this ?
Well this is quite important: I'm nothing fancy, just a nature photography-loving guy with a cheap entry-level DSLR and tripod, with a couple of filters. But taking photos out there and gleaning knowledge from artists I admire has taught me lots. This I simply wis
   Forest Photography TutorialAnimals, Plants, & Nature Week
Boing! Boing! Hello reader! Boing! Boing!
I am Nelleke, and I was asked to write an article about forest photography. Which is my favorite subject of photography! There is something about them that is timeless. Of course there's a reason forests get used so much as a backdrop in stories and movies... They can give you the feeling something magical is waiting just around the corner.

In this article I will discuss several points, some a bit longer than others. They are CompositionConditionsEquipment and Editing.
You might have seen a beautiful forest scene once, but noticed after taking a picture that it looks very different. A picture lacks the depth your eyes can see while walking in a forest. Which can result in a picture of just a flat bunch of trees.
   The Art of APN PhotographyAnimals, Plants, & Nature Week
Hello and welcome! My name is Jen, though I'm more commonly known on DA by my username, JenFruzz. I am currently the Animals, Plants, & Nature (APN) photography Community Volunteer on DA and your host for the next week! To kick off APN Week at projecteducate, I felt it would be prudent to share this article with my thoughts on what makes APN photography an art form and what can be achieved with the skilled work of its artists.
The APN Categories
Like many of the photography categories on DeviantArt, the subject matter that one would expect to see while browsing APN may be obvious on the surface. In fact, looking at the subcategories of APN on DeviantArt, you might think there's no need for an article that explains what an APN photograph is:
