Deviousness Award




 

Congratulations to
Lilyas






What is this Awesome Achievement?


The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally handed out on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.










Lilyas has dedicated herself to making our community a brighter place with her vibrant artwork and infectious enthusiasm for interacting with others in our community. It has certainly paid off, as many deviants flock to her page on a daily basis to let her know how much of an inspiration she is. We absolutely agree, and couldn't let all that hard work go without recognition, so it's with great pride that we bestow the Deviousness Award for March 2014, to Lilyas

SenshiStock is one of our most prolific stock artists. Sakky has dedicated herself to providing high quality stock to not only inspire creativity but also to empower and educate artists throughout our community.

Celebrity Death Guess 2014

Wed Jan 1, 2014, 10:57 AM


By popular demand, here's your chance to take part in this year's Celebrity Death Guess Game.

How to play!

The idea is that you have to predict 5 celebrities who are going to die during 2014. You can only enter once and we'll keep this updated throughout the year.

Obviously there are a few people who are excluded from being picked, including anyone currently on death row or awaiting execution of any other type. And you still can't get Sharon, or Castro, or anyone else who is currently on life support etc.

Bonus points if you can predict how the person will die!

No major prizes, it's all just speculation,  something I thought was a lil bit devious.Last Year's can be viewed here. Margaret Thatcher and Nelson Mandela are now off my list, RIP. 

Choose wiseley! You can't come back and change your choices, once you have picked your 5 celebs, comment back to this journal and the comment will be your one and only entry into the contest.

My 5 predictions are:

1. Muhammed Ali
2. Billy Connolly
3. Barbara Bush
4. Clive James
5. Donald Sutherland

Your turn! 

Dislcaimer: I feel the need to highlight once again that this is all in FUN. It's not that anyone is wishing someone would die.

Seniorityheader 2 by fourteenthstar
This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after Senior Member accolade -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.


So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community. 

Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognised in the crowd.

Today, we present to you the following deviants who have all been awarded Seniority in our current round of community recognitions. They have all been nominated for their efforts in the community by deviants, Staff and Volunteers.

Congratulations to
Nyx-Valentine






What is this Awesome Achievement?


The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally handed out on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.










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. Nyx-Valentine's gallery is filled to the brim with innovative examples of ways in which the human form can be used to express many emotions, thoughts and feelings in a creative way, and Nyx always goes out of her way to empower others to experiment in this area. We're absolutely delighted to have such a shining example in our community, therefore it gives us great pleasure to bestow the final Deviousness Award for 2013 to Nyx-Valentine.

Congratulations to Nyx-Valentine

A new direction

Thu May 2, 2013, 9:41 AM
When I first joined deviantART, I had no clue how to use Photoshop, but I had a lot of specific ideas in my head regarding what I wanted to create, and how it should look. It was thanks to people like insaneone, AlexandraVBach, zilla774 and kuschelirmel that I actually learned how to attempt to make such things a reality. I still wish I had half the talent that those guys have -- however these days, I find creating anything via Photoshop somewhat of an unispired task. 

I work from home, and clearly spend a lot of time in front of my computer. The last thing I want to do when I feel like creating, is stay seated! I have found that I take more and more photos recently and for a while I have been pondering purchasing a new DSLR -- so yesterday, I picked up a Canon 600D with a view to getting out and about and photographing as much as possible.

So my question to you is, what tips do you have for a beginner? Who do you know on deviantART that shares excellent tutorials, or photography guides? Which photographers do you find inspiring? Share!

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 18, 2013, 9:23 AM
Can you remember what you were doing 10 years ago today? Most likely not -- I can't remember what I was doing 10 years ago yesterday ;) However, 10 years ago today, I signed up for deviantART, and the rest as they say, is history. 

I thought about writing a super reflective journal, but it would be too difficult to encompass all the things I wanted to say in one journal, therefore I'll simply say THANK YOU to everyone who has been part of a decade of deviousness with me, and here's to many more.

:heart:


deviously yours,
