I will retouch a portrait. Retouching will include editing colors and tones of the photo, adjusting lighting, adjusting and accentuating facial and body features, adjusting focus of the photo, fixing hair and makeup, removing distracting elements of the photo, etc.

Please include your photograph in the Commission request. If you have specific requests, please let me know, otherwise I will use my discretion.



#Google is now surfacing notable artwork from DeviantArt on their "In The News" section. (In addition to Reddit and other "non-news" sites.)

Here's an example of PatrickBrown's Marvel Villains illustration appearing in search results:

I just noticed this today and these are the only examples I've seen so far, but Google says that virtually any content can show up in this section if deemed newsworthy.

A beautiful Kickstarter-funded short film. The animation is so stunning. #LeGouffre #shortfilm

Assassin's Creed: Identity - War of Cambrai
Last year has been an amazing year for me artwise. Among other things, I got to work with Wideshot on the Assassin's Creed franchise (Identity in particular), which was of course an incredible experience. Now that the NDA is lifted I can finally show some of that work, so here's one of two pieces I did for it. The War of Cambrai.

Randomly had this idea to create a "portal" to discover LGBT‬ Kickstarter projects, so I decided to build it on Equaldex.LGBT Kickstarter Projects by danlev

The Cabinet by immanuel
Finnish photographer Juha Arvid Helminen conveys a message on the misuse of power in politics and religion in his dark, faceless portrait series, "The Invisible Empire."
"In 2006 I witnessed the so called Smash ASEM demonstration in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki. I personally experienced the dark side of the Finnish police, with young men hiding behind their uniforms and hoods, anonymously committing misconduct. Later I also witnessed the reluctance of the justice system to punish those in uniform.

Uniforms create unity and through them we can for example tell apart a soldier from a civilian. The dark side is the seeming justification to violence and the possibility to disappear in the masses when we do something truly evil.

We wear clothes dictated by religion, political thoughts and tradition to communicate and represent authority but also as a sign of belonging and our ideologies. Often this can mask our true persona and create boundaries between us and the people we meet. The characters in my works are prisoners of these traditions and the walls we have created for ourselves. How close can we, the viewers, get to them, when they have been stripped of so much of their personality?"

— Juha Arvid Helminen

I miss being able to switch between Popular in the last 8 hours, 24 hours, week etc.
Could you bring that back?
(Or rather, could you forward that to the coding people so they bring it back)
Edit: Nevermind, found it on the browse page. Thought it was something for the "What's hot" page. Incidentally though, maybe the function to delete comments might be useful ;)
Edit 2: Sorry to keep bothering you, but I just thought of something: Since the "daily deviations, what's hot" etc. bar keeps scrolling with you, how about implementing the message center and homepage access there for easier all-time access?
danlev Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
That's something we're currently looking into. :)
NinjaYoshi585 Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2014  Student Writer
I have an idea: make a poll about of we like the new layout or not. Sure, there'd probably be a lot of 'no', but it might stop so many hate comments from coming in. Maybe even ask them why they dislike it. 
Also, if you could, I would love if you brought back the dd's. 
If you took the time to read this staff, thank you, and I hope I helped you, though I'm sure I probably didn't. :)

*nostalgia* surely everything is advance and enhanced but indeedly deviantART is losing its own old originality and simple uniqueness. Liked the feeds, collections to some extend and happy that you retained the browse page but everything seems so overwhelming specially on today's page.. this will surely cause a lesser exposure to some deviations and deviants (especially those who are not that popular) and plus it will take a long long time to reach a poll and journals (which were used to reside in that awesome dark green shade). What we want is to have everything be precised, summarized, catchy, accessible and within our visual field as before. I hope you guys can understand my opinion. Felt the need to write this cause these changes were giving me a feel of home-sickness. Thanks.
Hollowcyclone Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014  Student Artisan Crafter
Excuse me sir. I don't quite understand who you are. But I'm not here to hate on the new layout but here to simply ask. Will there be an option for changing to the old layout for those who like it? I mean I'm not a very hateful person to those who've done nothing wrong. However like most people I don't really like this new layout. Thank you for your time and I apologize for wasting it if this was already answered. Thanks again.
