Improved deviantART Integration on TwitterWe're excited to announce that we just implemented enhancements to the way deviantART links display on Twitter, giving you and your artwork more prominence and exposure!
We're always looking for ways to give artists better exposure -- both on deviantART and across the web. Not only do these changes give artists a bigger presence across Twitter by allowing them to reach a bigger audience, but they also encourage proper attribution.

dA Artist Raising $20k for LGBT Animated Film
New York City-based artist Alex Myung (~alexmyung) has started a Kickstarter project to raise $20,000 to create Arrival, an animated short film with a focus on the theme of coming out. Equalitopia sits down with Alex to discuss the project.
Currently, the project has raised almost $4,000 from 74 different backers, averaging out to about $52 per backer. Keep in mind that Kickstarter projects are “all or nothing,” meaning that if the project doesn’t reach its funding goal by Wednesday, February 20th, no funds will be transferred to the project.
Equalitopia: Could you tell us briefly about the storyline of Arrival?
Alex: Arrival is about a young boy growing up

Spirit Day: Make Your deviantART Avatar Purple!Spirit Day, a commemoration to support LGBT teens who face bullying, is Thursday, October 20th. Many people are participating by wearing purple, while others are participating online. Last year on Facebook, millions of people signed up to change their avatar to purple. DeviantART's 2010 Spirit Day article is the most +loved article of all time on deviantART.
If you'd like to show your support on deviantART, change your avatar to purple!
As Wikipedia states:
"In early October 2010, Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan promulgated the observance of a new commemoration called Spirit Day, the first observance of which took place on October 20, 2010, in which people wear the color purple to show support for LGBT young people who are victims of bullying. Promoted by GLAAD, many Hollywood celebrities wore purple on this day to show their support of this cause, and many w

Creating Columns by `miontre
Multiple columns are a great way to present your information in a journal skin. Whether you simply want to write text in two columns, or want to do something more advanced with it, columns are a great way to add that little bit extra to your aesthetics!
There is no limit to the number of columns you create, but you need to keep in mind that if you add too many your design will start to look worse on smaller screens. I personally find it's best to stick to two or three columns (though even numbers are much easier to work with). Throughout this tutorial, I'm going to work with three columns.
A Glimpse into Hyperrealism Art
Hyperrealism is a genre of painting and sculpture that resembles a high quality Photograph, It's the type of art that your mind might not accept it as a hand-made artwork. Hyperrealism is far more advanced than Photorealism by the methods used to create the resulting paintings or sculptures. The term is primarily applied to an independent art movement and art style in the United States and Europe that has developed since the early 2000s.
Hyperrealistic paintings are the k
A Note on Daily Deviation FeaturesAt ten features into my tenure as Community Volunteer for Abstract & Surreal Photography I am noticing a certain trend in response to abstract and surreal Daily Deviations. I shall address some of the recurring themes here, and hopefully answer some questions along the way. At this point I would like to mention that I am talking about a small and vocal minority, and I sincerely thank the overwhelming majority for supporting the featured artists and their work. You're what makes this site such a great community.
With that said, let's get to the troublesome themes I am coming across.
The "This is crap!" Argument
As an observer and a critic, you're entitled to think that something isn't very good. However, exclaiming as such on the comments of a piece of work that an artist has spent time and energy creating is not only counter-productive, but rude and insulting, especially if it's not followed up with some advice about how you think they could make their

Forum Stickies UpdateHello everyone!
If you're a forum regular you may have noticed the forum stickies being updated. There are a couple left, but we'll have those up for you as soon as we're happy with how they look.
Also, there's a brand new Need HELP thread that you may find useful even if you're not a forum regular!
We're hoping to make the forums easier to use and understand. Here are some key highlights:
The forum rules are now titled "READ BEFORE POSTING"—we're hoping this will make them more obvious to newbies (thank you `raspil for that suggestion way back when).The first bullet point of every forum refers to FAQ 801, which applies across the board and should be read by everyone before posting a thread. The second one always includes a link to the Need HELP thread (see above for a link, it's super-nifty).Some things that were previously only mentioned in the Deviants Forum are now in :faq801:We've added
PetalsThe grass tickled between her toes as her father toiled away with the roses by the letterbox. She watched his fingers weave between the thorns to pat the soil around each bush, humming to some John Lennon song she couldn't put a name to. Despite the sun just tipping the horizon, she saw sweat prickling his brow and his eyes squinting against the light. The fine lines on his face were suddenly accentuated by shadow, and for a moment, she swelled with wonder.
'Maria, come here,' he said, waving her over. 'You're not going to learn anything sitting all the way over there.'
Excitement sparked her limbs into motion, and she crawled over to sit next to him, careful to tuck her skirt beneath her thighs to avoid the dirt.
He picked up a pair of clippers from beside him. 'Now, you need to snipe back these diseased parts here and there from the base of the plant. It helps it grow better.'
Snipping off two pieces of wood with ease, he deposited them in Maria's outstretched hand. Their rough textu
