44 Desserts Challenge
1. Copy the List, and a link to this deviation into your journal so people can see that you are in the challenge. When you have done one of the themes you can put a link to your deviation right next to the dessert's name so everyone can see which themes you have done.
2. You can interpret the themes how ever you want.
3. You don't have to draw if you don't want to. It can be photographs, poetry, stories, crafts or whatever you want, as long as it's made by you. If you do photomanipulations using art made by others you need to have permission and give proper credit of course.
4. One dessert for every picture/photo/whatever.
5. They can be done in whatever order you choose, and there's no time limit.
6. Write in the comments for your artwork that it's part of the challenge, what theme it is, and add a link to this deviation.

A Guide to Effective Tagging
A new method to promote and discover art has been released to the community in the form of Tags! When submitting art, adding relevant tags to your deviations will help viewers discover art of interest to them and give your work more exposure.
You can add tags based on a variety of things, be it subject matter, themes, medium used, fandom, or anything else you feel is important.
Use these tips to make the most of tags and help your art to find its audience:
Keep it simple. The less complicated the tag, the easier your art is to discover.
Be specific. If you take a picture of a rose, tagging it as #flower, while correct, won’t get your art as much attention as tagging it #rose will. You can, of course, tag both.
Tag efficiently. If your art is based on Lord of the Rings, tag it #LordOfTheRings and/or #lotr. You don’t need to tag every combination — t

Deviant and Art Mentions
Mentions: Connecting People
Mentions are a new, highly requested feature that makes engaging friends and artists in conversation more dynamic than ever before.
What is a Mention?
A Mention is when a deviant’s username, icon, or artwork is included in a comment or Journal. Mentions create links to the deviants or artwork you include, allowing you to highlight artists and engage deviants with ease.
Links to pages on deviantART can quickly be distinguished by their bold, dark-blue color, while external links are darker and have an arrow indicating you are leaving deviantART.
Deviants you mention are notified in the new Mentions section of the Message Center, making engaging and involving others in conversation a simple, hassle-free experience.
How to Mention
There are four ways to mention a deviant.

Dammets (R)Evolution
I begynnelsen fanns dammråttor. Och husan såg dem och sade: “Det här var inte bra.” Så hon sopade dem under mattan.
Tiden gick, och dammråttorna under mattan växte och utvecklades till dammkaniner. Och när de blev för stora för att få plats under mattan, gav husan upp ett skrik och jagade in dem under sängen.
Under sängen låg dammkaninerna i mörkret och väntade. Långsamt samlade de på sig mer och mer damm, och till slut utvecklades de till dammkrokodiler. Och likt alla krokodiler blev de hungriga. Så en morgon när den unge herrn klev ur sin säng och satte ned fötterna på golvet gick de till anfall. Pojken skrek så högt att han nästan väckte de döda, och skrämde därmed dammkrokodilerna som slingrade sig iväg genom ett mushål för att gömma sig. Den stackars musen som råkade på dem blev raskt uppäten.
Undangömda i husets väggar blev dammkrokodilerna tvugna att lära sig att klättra och stå på bakbenen för att kunna fånga sig någon mat och färdas mellan husets våningar. Över tid

Fan Art Law

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan ar

This tiny insignificant thing mildly displeases me
I love browsing the Suggestions forum but am seriously blown away by how many times people post threads suggesting/requesting/demanding that dA alter the way the site works in order that they never have to see anything that isn't to their specific personal taste.
I'm not talking about the Mature Content filter or submissions with violate dA's policies here. I mean people expecting the entire site to change so that they don't ever encounter a thumbnail-sized image of a cat or My Little Pony or [insert other random object or concept here] while looking at the front page in Newest or Popular modes.
I find myself typing pretty much the same thing to these people on a regular basis, so thought it would be easier to simply make a journal about it that I can link to. So here it is.
Ok, first of all, context. dA is a huge, global website for artists and art appreciators of all ages with all sorts of tastes in what they create and look at. The fron

Journal History


My mind isn't in the gutters. Not anymore. It has gone down the drains, through the sewers, out into the ocean, up into the clouds and is raining down on you right now :plotting:

I do believe in cake, even if people always tell me that it's a lie.
I've eaten cake, dammit! I know it exists! ...though not for very long... :meow:

I have never seen Australia but I still believe that it exists! ♪

More cookies to the people! COOKIES!!! :shakefist:

After getting lost I seem to have found my way back to deviantArt! So don't be alarmed if you suddenly get a reply to a comment you made a year or two ago... :XD: Better late then never, right? Right? Sweating a little... 

Anyway... back from the dead with no exciting tale to tell! ... Well, there was this time when I.. and that time when...:surrender

Never mind! It's not important!

Flavour Incubus 63 - Vinegar
I'm making incubus personifications of all the flavours of my "100 Flavors Challenge" :la:

This is the Vinegar incubus. Very few things amuse him. Quite cold and distant, and doesn't really care about anything. He rarely does his job, since most people just can't keep his interest long enough. If you see him in your dreams you must be an extremely interesting person! ...or at least have interesting and fun reactions to what he is doing... :faint:

This is the first Flavour Incubus inked with a tablet. The other 9 were inked with a mouse (of the non-cheese-eating kind).
The pattern of the background is from a photo I took several years ago.

Ten Flavour Incubi done, only 90 to go!
Flavour Incubus 64 - Pineapple
I'm making incubus personifications of all the flavours of my "100 Flavors Challenge" :la:

This is the Pineapple incubus. He enjoys partying, and is quite intelligent and surprisingly trustworthy. If he is put in charge of getting a party started you can be sure that it will be the most well-organized party you have ever been to. Having fun is Serious Business, you know!
And whatever you do, make sure to not party too hard and make a mess, because he WILL take notes, and later when he is less busy with the party you will get a VERY stern talking-to! ...Maybe that is where those sharp high heels come in? :nuu:

I don't really like high heels, but I had problems with the feet and the high heeled shoes just accidentally happened :XD:

Nine Flavour Incubi done, only 91 to go!

As an Australian that lives in Australia I can confirm that I do not, in fact, exist :3
Sootness Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2016
Eeeek! I have believed all these years that Australia exists, and now I get proof of it not existing? :nuu: I mean, you should know since you live there, right? :meow:

Maybe it's a fairytale land full of unicorns and chocolate? And chocolate unicorns? :la:
padmeii Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I know, it took me some time to accept it myself. Oh Noes! 

But it is a fairy tale land with kangaroos, possums (the Australian kind which are cute but will scratch the heck outta ya), koalas, emus...and spiders and snakes. Sweating a little...

And most of our wildlife is deadly ( that feeling when the stereotypes are true ;-;), but I mean we seem to survive alright, 23 million strong Meow :3 
Sootness Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2016
Ooooh! So that's why all Australians are so smart! The not so smart went "Aww what a cute little AAAAAAARGH!" a long time ago and isn't around anymore! :O
Here in Sweden most of the wildlife is non-dangerous (well, you shouldn't go poke a bear with a stick, or try to ride an elk and pretend you're an elf king in a movie...) so all our stupid people are still around :XD:

Though I do have proof that Australia is a magical land full of chocolate as well, because a friend of mine traveled around Australia and she sent me chocolate! Chocolate that I greedily refused to share! :la:
