Welcome to Chat and Forums PE Week!Welcome to the projecteducate Chat and Forums week! The aim of this week is to educate deviants on one of the most overlooked parts of deviantART - the chat and forum.

Project Educate Continues! Project Educate Continues!!! projecteducate is a group and all updates from individuals during their weeks listed below will be posted over there! So be sure to join or watch for the full updates! If you want to partake in Community Week by writing an article then just note the group with your ideas! How it Works projecteducate started with purely CV run weeks. Those were weeks focusing on a specific art form brought to you by your lovely Community Volunteers. As well as these epic seven days of awesome, we've now introduced two more themes which run on a bi-monthly basis. Those are Community Weeks, which include articles from members of the DeviantArt community - and Artist Toolbox Weeks which include a mixture of articles focusing purely on the 'tools' of the trade. If you're interested in either please note projecteducate! Project Educate - The Schedule of Weeks!

Happy Holidays and Merry New Year As the old year begins to fade into the sunset, it is customary to reflect on the passing year and make plans for the upcoming one. Some do this in the form of resolutions, some people make action plans, some people just swing into the new year the same way they swung out of the old one Whatever way you intend to welcome in 2013, I hope you're surrounded by love and that you do it safely!I've been reflecting on the year and like many, with some focus on the unimaginable events of the last few weeks. Specifically, the shooting in Newtown. I know that it's "human nature" to want to find
Getting the Most out of dA: CommentingUsually, when you read something involving 'Commenting', you think of deviations and the commenting platform that allows other members of the community to voice their thoughts and opinions on the art shown. However, what is pretty evident, and something that most of us may forget, is that deviantART runs on the ability to give and get comments, be it on pieces of artwork, our profile pages, forums, and everywhere else in between.In a sense, without the ability to give and get comments, deviantART wouldn't be much of a website, much less #1 of online art communities around. Comments are not solely the cause of what makes deviantART what it is, but it has a huge impact on a lot of things. By giving and getting comments, not only do we interact with other members to really make this a community, we also have the ability to get our voices heard.It's quite an odd concept with us all facing screens, typing out our thoughts and opinions, but one thing we shouldn't forget is that commen

Celebrating Diversity #27The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to post an article with deviations outside of my area of expertise here on deviantART. Therefore I decided to browse away from Photography, and venture into areas that I know little about! I strongly encourage you to step out of your zone of comfort and take the time to discover or re-discover other types of art. The world is full of wonder and beauty, we just need to take the time and open our minds to see even more of it - embrace the diversity of it!

Typo Feature: AmbigramsWelcome to today's Typo Feature!In this ongoing series each article will focus on a specific theme and showcase deviations that manage to convey the theme in a special and great manner.This feature's theme will be ambigrams. Ambigrams are a subform of Caligraphy, usually keeping up the style of being drawn by brush or pen, but often with stricter, more geometric forms.The most famous kind of Ambigrams are those, in which when rotated 180° you will see the same image. Another popular form are Mirror-Image Ambigrams, which result in the same artwork when flipped horizontally or vertically.Some artists manage to place two words in one Ambigram. By rotating or flipping the artwork, a new word can be read. There are many forms of ambigrams, some easier to create than others. Words can be natural rotational ("suns" or "pod") or mirror-image ("bud") ambigrams.Ambigrams are popular elements in logo designs, as they give a high level of back detection from the

Seniority Announcements - January 2013This 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 ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.:faq29: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 other

New Submission Process and Thumbnail ExamplesIn my opinion, one of the greatest advantages to the New Submission Process, are the thumbnail examples and descriptions that appear when you're selecting a category. It's no secret that we have misplaced deviations throughout the galleries and it's probably the most complained about topic I deal with on a daily basis. My team and I have been working hard to improve the descriptions and thumbnail examples for all of the galleries, and I'm happy

Traditional Tuesdays #52OMG OMFG OMFG! This is week fifty-two of this little article, and I can honestly say that I didn't think it would last this long. The night I started this feature, I was bored and just browsing around the Traditional Gallery. I was finding all kinds great artwork, that for one reason or another I couldn't/wouldn't give a DD. It could be because they had a DD recently, but mainly it was for a link to go back and see what they created next, and if they took it to the next level. Now it's more for artwork that I no longer have time to DD, I can't DD everything! I still find the article fun to do, and I'll keep doing it until it no longer is. So.... here is fifteen works of art that I thought you should see. I can't trust all of you all with anymore awesomeness, you might hurt yourself! Anyway, on with the show!**WARNING:Viewing these works of art may cause giddiness, elevated heart rates, and happiness in the pants(which could
