#HaikuPoetryDay
Clouds Everywhere by TheStockWarehouse   
Clouds Fill the Blue Sky;
Swirling on a Windy Day;
Fresh Air, Smells like Rain. 

~ WDWParksgal  

Create Your Own Haiku. The Pattern is:
Line 1: 5 Syllables 
Line 2: 7 Syllables
Line 3: 5 Syllables

Haikus are a Japanese form of poetry that capture a feeling, an image or a perception of serenity, and the form is often inspired by nature, which is why I chose the Cloud Stock.

DeviantART will be going into "Read-Only" mode for maintenance on April 22nd. See info here:

Scheduled Maintenance and Read-Only Mode
DeviantArt will be undergoing scheduled maintenance on Wednesday, April 22nd from approximately 11:00 PM to 11:30 PM Pacific.
You might recall that we previously held Scheduled Maintenance on April 8th. At that time, we discovered there was a bit more work to be done. After spending the last two weeks addressing those issues, we're ready for our second (and hopefully final) test run — which will ultimately result in a faster, better DeviantArt experience!
DeviantArt.com and the DeviantArt Mobile App will be in read-only mode during this maintenance period — you'll be unable to submit, comment, or +fav deviations (or take other actions that require being logged-in.) However, you'll still be able to browse and search the site, and, same as last time, we encourage you to find and share artwork that you enjoy, bringing attention to artists you love!
As we continue to test changes to our backend systems,


PE: Community Week Wrap-UpCommunity Week
Welcome to the Community Week!
For those of you that may not know yet, a Community Week is a chance for everyone in the community to bring to light their favorite subject, art, project or any other topic that you consider important but may get overlooked in other ways. If you're interested in participating in the next Community Weeks, then please read the Guidelines.

  Project Educate - Dates and Information!Calendar and Info!
projecteducate was founded seven years ago by Moonbeam13 and since then has been a project run by the Community Volunteer team. The group is aimed at providing educational information for artists who want to learn about all sorts of art genres or who want to contribute their own knowledge for others to read about.
Weeks are usually allocated in seven day blocks unless there is a lot to cover and for general weeks a Community Volunteer will take the lead and bring you seven days of awesome in the form of articles, features, chat events, interviews and maybe even a contest or two. The volunteer will share their knowledge about the gallery that they oversee on DeviantArt or if they are a Chat & Forums volunteer they will give you insight into how things work over there. But now we have more and more involvement from the Community and we have themed weeks, which give anyone the chance to participate!

   Efficient Browsing on DACommunity Week
Hello Deviants! Back again from my last tutorial! I'm here today to give you some helpful tips on how to efficiently browse on DA and pick out handful shells from this vast ocean of over more than a million coral reefs and huge fish schools.Since DeviantArt is such a great social community with a huge population of deviants joining everyday and already existing, their  deviations fill up a great quantity of this ocean.So, to find your favorite pearls from this deep trench, I'll  bring up an  example in front of you so that you get the topic easily.I'll choose the FANART category for this discussion as it is the most widely browsed among the DA audience.So here we go:

Typing In The Search Bar and Getting the Best Results :
The first and the foremost step to find any deviation in the ocean, throw in your bait towards the blue waters and wait for 0.003789 secs. for it to show up more than 50,000 results!!!!!Therefore,while y
   How to do an Advanced Search on DACommunity Week
DeviantArt is a website that hosts millions of works published with broad search criteria, covering hundreds and thousands of results... Which can be very overwhelming! It is never easy to find what you're looking for and it is common to become lost when navigating among the content, unless you know the best way to perform a good search. This guide will show you what the most used and recommended criteria are to look for specific content in DeviantArt's search engine. To find out, I invite you to continue reading ^^.
It is the main search engine at DeviantArt, which you can find tons of graphic and literary material with. There are parameters that make searching the site either easier and faster. These parameters can be combined to optimize the search and get specific results, those that accommodate our needs and interests. Knowing how to manage this page correctly not only allows you to find w
   Chat Event: The PE Round TableCommunity Week
We are bringing a new Community Week chat event to YOU!
Beginning in May 2015, PE is holding a monthly chat event called "The PE Round Table" hosted by yours truly, JenFruzz! These chat events, which will take place in the :#CommunityWeek: chat room, aim to bring deviants together with fun discussion topics ranging from PE articles to Today's News stories to special guest question & answer sessions. Each PE Round Table event will have a set theme and this teaser article will explain some of the things you can expect to see going on there. 
We would like to get feedback from the community about this idea. Please leave comments in this article with your thoughts and suggestions. 
So, what are some of the things you can you expect to happen at The PE Round Table chat events?

   Patreon Launch DayAnnouncing!
I've launched my Patreon page today.  I have been working hard the last month getting Patron rewards ready and tweaking my profile to make it not too wordy...  As I tend to get.  Blah blah blah ;P  I'm super excited though I don't think I have any followers yet.  I guess, before I say any more, I should get to some explaining.
"Golden Sketch Cards"

What is Patreon?
Okay, first off, it is not a Kickstarter or fundraising crowdsourcing one run project.  It is an ongoing, subscription like service to support artists and creators.  Creators can be art, video, music...  Really anything.  This site is bringing back the Renaissance Era idea of patronage of the arts.  People used to support an artist to help them pay their bil

6:45am. In the next hour, I will rise from my bed, drink a cup of coffee, watch a few minutes of news on the television, and get ready to head out the door to open up shop at a major retail chain down the street from my house. The moment I exit my front door, thoughts of stock counts, refund procedures, and commission goals flood my head. "I really hope no one pays with a check today because I'll have to call my manager at home to have her handle it," is foremost in my mind. Working as a retail sales associate, these are the most important things for me to think of in my day. They're important to my job, they're important to my manager, they're important to the company. But they're not impor

There’s a word floating around Hollywood right now that is coveted like no other. That word is “Universe.”
A decade ago, the word was trilogy. Conspicuous examples like The Lord of the Rings and Christopher Nolan’s Batman set the standard in terms of making money and attracting engaged audiences, and every studio was hunting for their own three-part blockb

What Your Challenge Is
Details
This was a suggestion by our very own member, CrystalSabre! So, what would a ball of string look like if it was anthropomorphized? Would it be terrorized by the constant claws of a cat? Would it be falling endlessly in a summer's breeze? Would it be attached to something like a shoe? Or maybe belong to an elderly lady knitting away! What would the life be of a ball of string?

Here Comes The Little Prince
Grab a handkerchief everybody, then see if you can make it through the trailer for The Little Prince, arguably the most influential children’s story ever told, without at least getting some chills. We could not be more excited that this story is getting what appears to be a very solid big screen adaptation. Let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments section.

Fantastic Four Trailer
There’s a new Fantastic Four trailer and oh em gee does it look good. It’s so well-cast, and looks to have the balance of witty humor and emotional gravity we’ve come to expect from Marvel films. This could just be the low-key best blockbuster of the summer. What do you think? What summer hit are you most looking forward to?

According to the World Wildlife Fund, 2.7 billion people are faced with water scarcities during at least one month of the year. As drought conditions prevail in many places around the globe and our limited supply of accessible fresh water continues to dwindle, the problem is getting worse, not better.

Do you remember the shot on the first teaser trailer for The Force Awakens that features a desert environment everyone assumed was Tatooine? According to a report from IGN, director J.J.
