I've been jamming to this song lately. What have you been listening to?

I finished reading Tokyo Ghoul last night. That ending was...something.
The #DeviantArtApp represents a push forward, to me. It's been a long time coming, and watching it progress from design to early development to its current iteration has been an incredible journey. I'm excited to see how it grows from here, now that it's in the hands of the community.

So I'm currently a portion of the way through editing draft 1 of November's novel, and after stopping to take a glance at the last two pages I'd edited, I realized that I don't normally talk to people about revision in a way that accurately covers how I feel about revision. For starters, here are the last two pages that I edited tonight:

20150303 003822 by wreckling

To me, the revision process is still step 1 of the creation process. You write your first draft, and then you revise your first draft. I don't consider the first draft of my novel done, as it is currently, even though the actual initial writing part is done.

However, I think a lot of people have the wrong impression about revising, too, which is why people tend to avoid it. I like the editing and revision process about as much as I do the initial writing process, mostly because I get to do things like what's in that picture up there. I love making notes for myself on what to change and improve, not to mention cutting out words and phrases to make it an overall cleaner bit of work. 

Revision is an important part of the creation process. Don't skimp on it! Learn to enjoy it and make the most of it, and it'll make creating even more fun than it already can be.

A few questions for you:

What are you currently working on, when it comes to your art?

Initial creation aside, what is your favorite part of your personal creation process?

Take a photo of a current work in progress, or something you're revising, and share it with me!



Valentine's Day Art Exchange 2015 Wrap-Up!

February often signals the spark of new or lasting love, and this February was no different, marking the fourth annual Valentine’s Day Art Exchange! This year’s event was a grand success, with over 23,000 deviants sending over 130,000 valentines!


Not to be outdone by last year’s event, almost 10,000 artists created and submitted Valentine-themed deviations to the 2015 Valentine Exchange category, a nearly 50% increase from the number of artists who took part in 2014! We also saw deviants spread the love even more than in previous years, as over 65,000 deviants received a valentine.

We’re always happy to see positivity and good feelings within DeviantArt, and the Valentine Exchange certainly brought out the best of the community. Ranging from artwork that was cheerful and kind, to lovey-dovey, to outright funny, deviants took their creative talents and put them to use in clever, heartwarming ways.

Happy Valentine by Naschi  


This Year’s Top Five


Every year we see some Valentine deviations get sent at an impressively high rate. This year we saw five deviations in particular being sent around the globe numerous times. The top five most popular digital valentines from 2015 are:


  1. Potato Love by Kawiku, sent an astounding 3,241 times!

  2. Happy Valentines by griffsnuff, sent 2,455 times!

  3. I GIVE MY HEART TO YOU by Ry-Spirit, sent 2,423 times!

  4. Valentine 2015 (1) by KhaoShar, sent 1,186 times!

  5. Valentines Day- Thank you for Eeveerything by DragonDogDreams, sent 1,030 times!


We’d also like to give a shout-out to JutsuGal1208, who sent more valentines than any other deviant this year, with over 1,100 valentines sent to almost 1,000 deviants! Talk about really spreading the love!

As always, many thanks to everyone who took the time to spread love and cheer this February — whether you created or sent valentines, or even just cheered on the exchange. It’s because of your kindred spirit that we’re able to continue hosting events like these for the community, which in turn helps deviants build lasting relationships with one another. It’s the DeviantArt way of building connections around the globe, but it wouldn’t be possible without you.


Thank you once again for another fabulous Valentine’s Day, and we’ll hopefully see you here next February as well! :love:

Hey read this and PLEASE reply to it if this is true or not.

As of May the twenty first, deviantART will be deleting ALL  dA accounts. Not the plz accounts though. But just all name-wasted accounts, or accounts that we think are fake, or that are useless. We are doing this to prevent something that could possibly may happen in the future. If we find this message on you're deviantID, journal, etc. We will know that you are not a fake. Thank you for listening






Well is it?
