In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.

deviantART is at Comic-Con!

    DeviantART is at Comic-Con -- right now!  Every year, Comic-Con International: San Diego hosts a huge gallery of artists in what's known as Artists' Alley, and we couldn't be more excited to sponsor the Alley for the fourth year in a row.  Our aim has always been to keep focus on those who not only make the entire convention possible, but provide us with a world of entertainment across all media: the artists.

    At Comic-Con? View our list of panels.

    Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with all of our Comic-Con happenings!

    Never gone to a con or meet in my life. Wish I could, though. Sounds like a load of fun! Keep up the great work guys, and have fun meeting fellow deviants! :D

    .......I almost cried.
    Rows upon rows of computers and keyboards with tablets correctly set up and working, along with potential troubleshooting help, if only just someone who gets paid to flip the desks over with you....
    ...This is a beautiful thing. A very very beautiful thing.

    Not only do I live on the East Coast, but I can't afford it anyway. Granted, I've never been a 'Con' type, but this might interest me once.... Maybe, in the future, if my finances improve greatly.

    I went to Aeroanime, here at my country, last year. I'm coming this year too!
    I haven't on a deviantMEET, though I'll love to. And my fave would be Megacon, though I never went to one. I've seen some pictures of it, I hope to go this year for my birthday ^^

    I wish they didn't have to have an art/fandom meet up exclusively at Comic-Con or WonderCon. it takes time, money, and energy to go all the way down there to meet people/fans who have something in common (which is rare) and who really want to meet you. there should be meet-ups out of these conventions near hometowns instead of the one time trip. specifically, what Waluigi fans, Gorillaz fans, and Wreck-It Ralph fans would give to have a deviantMEET up closer to home. I've been to WonderCon recently last April and it was amazing, except there was no deviantMEET.

    I live in San Diego County (North County) .. Really wish I could have gone to ComicCon this year.. I haven't gone to Comic-Con OR E3 in about 5 or so years .. Its a real bummer :(.

    But I WILL go next year for sure! Does anyone here know how to go about ordering passes or the like? How does that work? Every time I went to CCn or E3, it was through my fiance (Worked at the now dead 'Midway Games') and we always had special passes..

    I went to Montreal Comicon once and I went to Blizzcon. I'm returning to Blizzcon this year and we will have a Quebec Comicon for the first time (if it sells enough, I guess).

    My favorite so far is Blizzcon.

    Next year, have more drawing programs installed. Lots of artists here prefer things like SAI, Sketchbook, Manga Studio or other such programs. Give people a variety!

    Looks awesome though.
