Thursday: Tree, Olive, Bottle Art Contest!I hope you all had a fantastic Valentine's Day last week! Well done spreading the love to all.
This week, we're continuing the love trend. We're doing an art creation contest. However, there's a twist -- you must use three pre-determined items in your piece!
We want you to create a deviation including three specific items that revolves around our theme of love:
Your deviation must contain these images:
How you incorporate these items around the theme of love is up to you!
Of course, you may use more than the objects above, but all three of those objects must appear. Feel free to create whatever inspires you! Maybe someone is creating a model tree with olive-colored leaves in a bottle to give to his love. Or, maybe two olives are sitting in a tree, sipping wine from a bottle. Whatever your mind creates, we want to see it!
You can draw, take a photograph, write a story, use

Calling all superheroes -- there's a crisis afoot! The world's supply of tangerines is dangerously low, and we need a superhero to come and save us. That's where you come in!
Your task this week is to become a superhero and save the world -- in this case, solving the problem of too few tangerines. How would you go about doing this?

It's completely up to you!

Complaint Challenge Contest!
We got our complaints out in December 2012. Now, 2013 is about doing something productive with them. I am not going to sit and grumble about my pet peeves. Neither should you!
Anyone who knows me should have been suspicious from the start of Phase 1 because complaining is one of my own complaints. (And you saw this trick last year!) That's right. I complain about people complaining. Silly, yes? Well I decided to do something about it with this challenge.
I hope everyone enjoyed sharing their gripes in Phase 1 because it is time for Phase 2! And Phase 2 is open to everyone, even if you didn't participate in Phase 1, or decided to change what complaint you'd like to address!
Complaint Challenge – Phase 2
The challenge in a nutshell: Pick one of your dA complaints and do something proactive about it. Work toward a solution or improvement in a positive way.
Now a few of you are probably thinking things like, "I
Muro For *Membership .05 is CLOSED! Hello everyone, and welcome to the fifth Muro for *Membership contest! Here you have the chance to win one of two one month premium memberships by making a Muro drawing either in the journal comments or by linking one that's based off of two or more provided themes each month. What makes this contest unique? That no matter what your skill level is as an artist, as long as you meet the minimum requirements of each months contest, you are eligible to randomly win a premium membership. After the end of each contest's submission period, each qualifying deviant will receive a number starting at one and go up as high as it needs to, and after each person gets a number they are entered into a random number generator and the middle and last numbers that represent the people will win a one month premium membership.

. . . THREE for first!Update
After a bit of deliberation and talking to our top 3 players, we decided that, rather than having them scramble all new puzzles to decide first, second, and third places, we will divide the winnings for all three places evenly and give each player 5,000 dA points.
Please join us in congratulating our three first-place winners!
Thanks to everyone who hid a clue, wrote a passage, invented a riddle, created a graphic, or provided a prize. And special thanks to the people who brainstormed with us as we developed this crazy idea and stood by our sides as we put it into action. We appreciate every one of you, and this game would not have been possible without you.
Have a great holiday!

Welcome to the 2012 dASAW! [Updated]Welcome to the 2012 deviantART Staff Appreciation Week!
Hello everyone, and welcome to our second annual deviantART Staff Appreciation Week! We hope that you're as excited as we are to kick off a 7-day-long celebration of deviantART and the people who make it run smoothly for us!
For this week of contests, projects, love, points, prizes, more love, and devious shenanigans, our team of volunteers has worked very hard to organize many ways of telling the staff of deviantART, rather simply, "THANK YOU!"
So, without further ado, let's take a look at our schedule of events! If you are interested in seeing what's happening during the dASAW, you can refer to this journal! We will link to all of our pertinent news articles and post the dates of our contests and projects here!
Don't forget to wish the deviantART staff a happy dASAW! :iconeeeeeplz:

Apparel Collection: Movie TimeTo wear this shirt is to cast yourself as the main character in the film of your life, with the dynamic and brightly colored images that make our days as beautifully composed as any award-winning movie. Art is a projection of your creative vision, so project it proudly!
Art exists across many media, from the very static to the super dynamic. Moving-picture media is a great subject matter, and it is the inspiration for this graphic illustration.
This design began on tracing paper with a sharpie marker as fast and furious lines over a pencil drawing. Knowing that this would be a shirt graphic and wanting to mix up the styles on the collection, I was happy with the drawing but wanted to move a different direction. In searching through images of movie-making and projecting systems, old-school projector technology caught my eye as a relic of times past. It’s all about following the inspiration, and the imagery of this machine that existed as a building block for the film technology we
Photography: Your Thoughts?Within this article we (myself and ^3wyl) are looking for your feedback on specific areas of the Photography Galleries and in particular what you'd like to see happening with regards to the following..
As you know, ^3wyl and myself are your General Photography Community Volunteers. That means we take Daily Deviation suggestions for all the Photography Galleries that don't have a volunteer looking over them. My Guidelines for suggesting daily deviations can be found here and ^3wyl's here. As we cover a lot of galleries, we would like to know whether or not we are neglecting anything. What do you want to see more of, or indeed less, or something in particular, perhaps? In essence, are we covering what you like to see? Let us know
Thursday: Random Phrase Art Contest!Happy Thursday!
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving last week, and are rested up and ready for an art contest this week! Using a random phrase generator, your task is to make a piece of art depicting your random phrase!
Here's how to participate:
Use this random phrase generator to get a random two-word phrase. It's best to use the first one that comes up, but you may choose another.
Draw this phrase, depict it in a photograph, or write about it! Any medium is accepted. However this phrase inspires you, we want to see it!
Be sure to include your random phrase in the description of your piece! Without this, we won't be able to properly judge your piece. It's also helpful to indicate that your entry is for :dev
Keep in Touch!
^Nyx-Valentine arrived in our community and started whipping everyone into a frenzy with her relentless desire to bring the Artistic Nude and Fetish galleries to the fore. 9 years later, and it's safe to say that Nyx is not only a leader as a photographer in these galleries, but she has also established herself as a much saught after model. ^...
