   Holiday Card Project 2016!
The DeviantArt #HolidayCardProject is back for its 10th 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.

How to use the DeviantArt Mobile App
The DeviantArt App for iOS and Android mobile devices is considered one of the most significant innovations within an artistic community that is home to a huge number of users. It overcomes many of the limitations that the mobile version of the site in the mobile browser, such as adding the ability to upload our artworks, or make changes to our gallery, etc. The DA App includes the main browser (Today Page, What's Hot, Daily Deviations, Undiscovered), the Submit Page, Notifications/Notes (the latest update), Watch, profile view and more. However, the app is yet to have all the basic and advanced features of the web version (such as Polls and Critiques or access to

   So you sent a Daily Deviation suggestionCommunity Week
It is time to talk about Daily Deviation (commonly called "DD") suggestions! In this article, we will skip the parts where we explain what a DD is or how to suggest them and so on since there are already various articles and journals about that. We will focus more on what happens after you suggest them. :D
What happens next?
Or, there are two possibilities: either your DD is accepted (if so, congratulations to the suggested artist and to you, the suggester!); or it isn't.
How do I know if my DD Suggestion is accepted?
Either you know it in advance because the CV you sent your DD Suggestion note to told you, or you receive this kind notification in your message center:

So then you can jump around and be happy for the artist :dummy:
How do I know if my DD Suggestion is not accepted?
Well... sometimes, you don't. Some of us CVs don't rep
   5 reasons why you should create your own artCommunity Week
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde
     I have been on DeviantArt for a couple of years now, and when I first started here I felt very intimidated by all the amazing artists on this site. At some point, I wanted to do things just like them and copy their styles photography-wise (we are not talking about plagiarism here), so that I'd eventually improve and be noticed on this site. I soon realized that I was doing it wrong. This was when I started to work on having my own art style: something that would define me and not some other artist's work.
However, every now and then, I meet some deviants who feel the same way that I used to feel. People saying things like: "I want people to love my art and be popular here"; or "I should change my art style so that people would like my work more"; or "I should get the same gear as that artist so that I can take the same kind of photographs"; and so on and so fo
   Writing journals in Rich and HTML modesCommunity Week
I'm UszatyArbuz and today I want to explain some basic features that DeviantArt provides for anyone to use in the journal. However they are really simple HTML, people keep asking me from time to time on how to do more complicated things with them.
Even though you can use more features, I am going to explain the features that are provided on top bar of "Write a journal entry" page only, in both Rich text and HTML editing modes, and how to adjust them to your needs.
Let's get it started :la:
How does it look like?
To see the bar, you can either go to your "Write a journal entry" page, or " Writer" page. On writer page, part of the bar is moved to the next line, however the features and their order doesn't change.

   Community Relations Roundtable: Being a CVCommunity Week
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?
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

   General Photography DD Roundup: November 2016Welcome!
This month the general photography CVs - Mrs-DurdenTanyaSimoneSimpson and myself - were all super busy in real life so we didn't get as many DDs up as we usually do. Apologies, we'll try harder this month! Many thanks to everyone who's suggested to us, and as always we need more suggestions so don't be shy. Our guidelines are linked at the bottom of this article, and we tend to get a lot more People and Portraits suggestions than anything else so bonus points if you send us great pieces from the "weird" galleries. Self-suggestions are always welcome if you have a piece of your own that you think we should see!
