Eyes of the Artist - ProjectHello all !Eyes of the Artist - Project by Savaliste
I've come up with a lovely community project that I hope you'll join.
"Eyes of the Artist" or "Eye of the Artists" haven't decided just yet which to call it..advice?
Here is the point:
Your eyes see the beauty in art. Your eyes see and create art. Granted you don't need eyes to create art or feel art but seeing art is certainly a wonderful experience.
What to do:
Take a photo of one of your eyes.
Use a camera or cell phone or whatever you can.
Please make sure it's in color and not b&w.
At least 500x500
No major editing please other than crop and such...
I'd like to see your eye as you are in everyday life
Upload to DA into whichever category you wish.
Then comment here with the link.
When I get enough deviants participating I will post the results
and you'll see how lovely it is...
hoping it goes as planned
I'll be combining them all to make o
Hoodie Cult 2.0We did it in 2010 and it's time to do it again!Hoodie Cult 2.0 by ginkgografix
edit 2: There wasn't as much interest as the last time, so I will officially 'close' this at the end of November. Until then you can still send me your hoodie pics and I shall add them here as well.
edit: We need more hoodies! So where is your entry??
Don't be so shy. And you can hide your face if you want, that's ok.
A while ago Nyx-Valentine and I decided that we need to do it again. Grab any hoodie near you (if you don't have something use any other kind of head covering or be creative) and get your photo done!
Let's see if we can beat the amount of 82 entries from last time.
What are you waiting for?
The Hoodie Collection (30)

devMeet at Denver Comicon!JournaldevMeet at Denver Comicon! by Katara-Alchemist
It is a go! The Meet will happen Saturday, June 1st, though a specific time won't be announced until we get a tad closer (that way I can try and schedule around big panels and such). All information on the con can be found on the con's website, so come take a look for specifics.
Also, as for specific place, that will be decided Friday May 31st as I need to go scope the place out on the first day of the con since I have no idea how they'll be using the convention center. I'll send out an announcement with all final details that Friday afternoon, and you guys can always reach me through note or twitter (kataraalchemist) if you need any info.
The con itself runs from May 31st to June 2nd and will be held at the Colorado Convention Center. It is very easy to get to by lightrail or bus, so I advise parking somewhere else and then taking the lightrail/bus in because parking will be a bitch.
Reasons why the new DA logo is not plagiarizedLately, I've been seeing claims pop up everywhere about how the new DeviantArt logo is simply a ripoff of an existing logo for another company. So I'm posting a short opinion journal on why it is not based off of some of my personal experience.Reasons why the new DA logo is not plagiarized by Nichrysalis
To be perfectly honest, this is, to me a culturally ignorant suggestion given the obvious origins of the http://platzkart.ru/ logo. I have a feeling I may catch some flak for saying this, but would everybody stop looking for reasons to object to new changes? Please understand that the platzkart logo is its own creation.
I grew up in a very diverse neighborhood, and a huge portion of my friends have a cultural background from Eurasia. I spent a lot of time becoming familiar with other languages because of this. The first noticeable thing you can see is that platzkart.ru is not platzkart.com or platzkart.co.uk. It's the top level domain for Russia, a country that uses a different alphabetic system than most western countries: Cyrillic. Cyrilli
