Group Challenges:

NEW Challenge: Red, White, Touch of GoldGreetings Castle...
I'm issuing a NEW challenge (replacing the "I Want to Believe" which apparently did NOT strike anyone's "fancy." ;p) In our sister group, there seems to be lots of interest for color challenges so we're doing one here as well. :bulletred: The requirement is to create artwork with the limited palette of red, white with a touch of gold. You are free to go surreal, fantasy, dark, sci-fi- whatever genre you are moved to work in. This makes the game WIDE OPEN for variety and I HOPE will bring in lots of players. Your piece can be a design type of image OR a scenic one but it MUST follow the color rules.
:bulletred:genre OPEN
:bulletred: Send us your best work, let us see your talent, folks. (Just as you HAVE been doing :)
:bulletred: Manipulations only
:bulletred: Challenge ends February 7th 2016, 12 midnight PST
:bulletred: PLEASE Include our group icon in your description as well as giving proper credit to your stock providers. Please upload your art to the "Challenge"
   It's All in Black and White NEW ChallengeHappy New Year Artists of the Castle...  
We're starting the new year with a color challenge. Officially (because the header doesn't allow enough space) it's "It's All in Black and White with a Touch of Red." Lately, I've been enjoying the remarkable artworks I'm seeing where there is this limited palette. I hope you ALL will join me in this "quest for less" (color that is.) :P Here are the details:

Unfortunately, the recent price hike has made it so I cannot give as many premiums. However, commissioned artwork was the second most requested prize, and many artists take point commissions.
As a thank you for your patience, 1,000 points have been added to the prize pool that were not part of the original points goal. This allows for an extra 2 premiums.

FREE Snow Flake Divider by LeviaDraconia

Many thanks for the generous point donations to my site, which is allowing me to hold challenges and contests in groups. I'm excited and thrilled at the generosity of many deviants.

This challenge will be two-fold:

1) Create a Winter-Related avatar that is free to use for anyone in the community.
2) Create a Support Stamp for Free-dAvatars 
It would be lovely to have a stamp that represents the way DeviantART now represents itself with a capital "D" instead of the older version, "d" in DeviantART. Please use the phrase "Free DeviantART Avatars" in the stamp!

Journal Skin by ginkgografix 

Commission Infos:bulletred: Commissions for dA related things (journal & gallery skins) are closed.
For webdesigns, websites, flyers etc note me.
Before you decide if you want me to hire make sure that you know how I work and that you like the results. Everyone has a personal style and if you don't like mine, it is better to ask someone else.
All my prices are in Euro, that means you should either pay the equal amount in your currency or Euro. In the past people have just changed the currency which usually lowers the price.
Some of you might complain that I am too expensive for them, but even if a journal/gallery skin seems to be something minor or simple it takes some time to get a good result. Especially if you want a bug free and flexible skin that is easy to use. Each skin is unique and no code is used twice - unless you ask me to do something like that.
I'm using Paypal and accept points. For Paypal i won't give away details unless we have made an agreement of price a
  Your help needed!Hey everyone,
I usually don't like to do this kind of things, but sometimes situations are tricky and you try your best to make it as comfortable as possible.
So before I get to the details, let me explain the situation:
Some of you might remember Kuniberta, some might not. You can read about it here or here if not.
Being one of the Top 5 got me the invite to a Royal Icing workshop. I always wanted to do that, as Royal Icing is something I find quite handy and normally I wouldn't be able to afford such a workshop.
While this is good that I won this, it is bad that it takes place at the other side of Germany in Cologne - several hours away from me. Financially it is a bad idea to go there, but like before with Hannover I would totally regret it if I won't go.
As my mum and I always wanted to do a trip to Cologne to see the

Holiday Card Project 2015!
The DeviantArt #HolidayCardProject is back for its 9th year!  With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In the past few years, this project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards are then divvied up and distributed by DeviantArt members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for DeviantArt volunteers and hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who sends in

My wonderful, kickass, amazing good friend Jade is back among the ranks of the Seniors.  She spent 3 years wrangling the wild photmanippers and did a damn good job at it :D  We (the stock CVs) worked very closely with her and now she gets a well-deserved rest as she turns it over to ErikShoemaker.  Thank you, Jade!!

My sweet, beautiful, amazing co-CV Lannifer (Elandria) has retired.  She was the CV for Stock when I joined the team (I replaced the smexy Dan-Heffer) and we've been terrorizing the community together ever since.  We were joined by Cheryl (CelticStrm-Stock) what seems like just a second ago, but has apparently been about 2 years, and our little stock family got a bit more devious.  Now we have a baby Erin (Cassy-Blue) and the team is evolving once more.  It has been quite a ride and

Copyright Resources CompilationFan Art
When we talk about Fan Art, the question of copyright tends to come up.  There have been a lot of resources posted on the subject on DA over the years and sometimes they can be tricky to find.  So this is a comprehensive compilation on the topic posted by staff, who have had legal consultation.  I have left out older articles that are similar to the ones I included as the more recent ones would have the most accurate information.
DA's Copyright Policy

While I have shared official articles and FAQs here, I know there are a lot of unofficial articles on the topic.

Despite so many of the complaints some people have against it, DeviantART is a very good social network geared specifically towards artists and people who appreciate art.  DeviantART is, in fact, one of the very first sites of its kind, predating even such social networking giants as Facebook and Myspace.
It is a wonderful place to share your work, to look at the work other artists have created, to offer and receive advice on artwork, and many other functions.  You will find that there are lots of fellow Deviants out there who want the best for you and want to see you excel as an artist and as a member of the DeviantART community.  On the other hand, you will also find an alarming number of people who like to troll, flame, spam, and just generally cause trouble for fellow Deviants.  Every place has them, and there's no escaping it.
That said, there are a few ways you can survive the onslaught of some of
