That's why each month will get their own Article. January 2011These were the most popular emotes from January 2011.

We have a new Emoticon CV :iconexcitedplz: :iconexcitedplz: :iconexcitedplz:It's stuck-in-suburbia :iconeeeeeplz:All those who have entered have to update their Entry with the OC of her Her OC: I thought it would be nice to create welcoming gifts for the next Emoticon CV. The goal of this project is to show that we fully support the next emoticon community volunteer, no matter who it will be.

Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. futureI am proud to present you my first "official" Emoticon Contest. At first I want to tell you something about the theme: As you have read the theme is past vs. present vs. future, this means your entry has to include something from the past, present and future. The time isn't set, this means that the past could be just 1 day ago or 100 years ago it's the same with the future. For example: you could display how the emotes have lived in the past how they are living now and how they could live in the future.Be creative and surprise me with your imagination The Contest is divided into 2 Categories: The first Category will be for deviants who would like to work alone. And the second category is for deviants who want to work with somebody (a collaboration category ;D) 2 deviants can work together.But you could also enter in both categories! Below you can find the rules of each category and what you have to keep in mind.Deadline:start d
help corner: EmoticonsWelcome to the help corner:Emoticons. If you have any questions about anything Emoticon related go ahead and send me a note. Not all questions have to be serious, I am looking forward to all kind of questions ;D The questions will be answered in the next edition of the help corner. I had the idea for this News article when I recently went through the Tutorial list of Emotication. I normally send deviants to Emotication when they need help to create Emoticons. Now that I went through the list I noticed that many tutorials aren't helpful at all. It is "just" a list with very good but also very bad tutorials.In the first edition of the help corner I want to share tutorials with you that I find helpful. These don't necessarily reflect my preferences in the emoticon creation process Let me first tell you something about different shadings. Every Emoticonist has different preferenc

Give Thanks... deviantART. Friends. Features.Edit: Share with your friends on Twitter as well! https://twitter.com/#!/ZevImages/status/139572960288714752I know that many deviants have had a rough past year. I know I have. For some, it was the economy, for some changes in their families and loved ones, and I know for some it has even been on deviantART. We have all had struggles, but this time of year, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, is as good a time as any to thank people for what we DO have. In this world of little, we all have something we hold dear to our hearts. Now is the time to say thanks. So, what I would like to invite everyone to do is in the next 48 hours (Today + Thanksgiving), fave this journal to show your support, then comment with 4 things you are thankful for:1 thing on deviantART you are thankful for1 thing with your family, loved ones, friends, etc. you are thankful for 1 thing in your life you are thankful for1 piece of art you, or a fellow deviant created that you are th

January 2012 EMTC! + 22 Entries! + 1 DAYS LEFT!! Two legs attached, only four more to go! There will be pictures before this day is over. And we are only 3 away from my 25 mark. New prize added! A few points...and a small plushie! And...if we can manage 25 ENTRIES this month....I might be tempted to offer yarn creations for future contests as well. TIMEI admit, the EMTC hasn't been getting a lot of love from me lately. Real life interceding, and all the stress and craziness of the holidays. But, with the start of the new year, things will slow down and there will be "time" to do more things. Hopefully. [:shifty:] This is suppose to be the last year and all. [Cough] Anyways, I decided this would be a good theme for the new year. Perhaps your emote finally has time to focus on some of its hobbies....or it is obsessed with clocks. M

The ABCs Of Deviants: FallenUmbraPresenting...:iconfallenumbra:FallenUmbrellaFirst off, could you give us a brief introduction of yourself?Hi there, I’m Lauren I’m 16 years old and into my sophomore year in my high school. I spend my time at home during the weekends (or all day during the summer) and in school. When I am not in school, I am spending at least 20+ hours a week playing in the marching band (which, technically, I would still be in school ). When I’m not getting my ass kicked on the football field or catching up to my homework, I spend time on deviantART.Anyway, I love to read, write, and play on my flute. I am a bit shy in real life, so writing something down does help me express myself. I am getting busier now, so it’s hard to do many things in my spare time. It does, however, keep me sane What gave you the idea to register with your username?My username is totes random I never thought that I would love to be in such a great art commun
