New flashmob for realz! :eager:An idea from tatasz!
The rules are really simple!
You have to paste the thumbs of 2 or 3 deviations of yours, that you posted around this date a year ago.
Then you tag 5 friends, and they shall do the same thing in their journals.
Let's see what comes out!
Today it's July 29th!
Here are my deviations. Since I didn't really post anything around that date, I'm picking the closest ones to that date.

Old deviantART username symbols scriptLittle history:
Some days ago I had Xyrus-02 at my house. I was checking his page to search something when I think I saw a little tick appearing sliiiiightly before the medal. So, after I told him, he went checking the code but couldn't find any reference to the tick. Back then, I really liked the tick. I have nothing in contrary with the medal...only tastes.
(btw, this thing happened today too and I was sober! )
He went back home and coded this thingy. We beta-tested it together and now it works fine. I know many people preferring the old symbols, so here's your chance!
Here it is...

Fractal and Fractal-Related Daily Deviations for the past week
Scraber Lights by Thenit
Fractaling Vol. 18(and yes, I'm abandoning that stupid gimmick of numbering my journal entries )
In early December 2012, the latest issue of Fractaling has been released.
After that date, the feature disappeared from the message centers of many deviants.
What happened to those journals is surrounded by awe and mystery.
Still nobody knows and nobody dares to ask. But now it's back.
Yeah, ok, I've been a bit discouraged and lazy. This doesn't mean I'm allowed to act like a sloth.
So, after almost 2 years, the 18th edition of Fractaling is out!
You might have noticed I've been through a fave rage. I've found some interesting stuff I'm presenting to you now.
It will be a bit different from the previous issues (if you remember how the others were ).
Relax on your couch/chair and enjoy some fractalsauce!
#207: I need a dental bridge now!Well! Seems like I got a tick medal next to my nickname! I'm kinda speechless, really.
Thank you guys, I'm still overly joyed for that! And I also want to congratulate with the other new seniors (especially with Eitvys200 and the other fellow fractalists lucid-light, KPEKEP and raysheaf), glad to share this day with them!
#206: Lazy ass.Ok, last time I posted a fractal was May 31st.
It's not even lack of inspiration actually...I really don't feel like opening Apophysis lately. So much stuff I prefer to do instead of that.
I will do something I think. Same stuff, you know...just to get on the tracks again.
Except this and study (my studies are never that great xD), everything else is super fine!
How are you guys?
#205: Premium MembershipOk, who gave me the Premium membership?
Please, show yourself, I'm so curious! (even via note or whatever D: )
(and really really thankful! )
#204: What is fractal art for you? - My two centsIf you haven't read yet:
I haven't been able to reply in the past days, but now I have a general idea of what was going on.
First, let me say this is not about doing the same kind of fractals over and over, otherwise I wouldn't be here writing this journal because I'm the first who spams your message centers with 3D flowers, so who am I to judge?
I think it's more a matter of opening Apophysis/MB3D/Chaotica/UF/whateversoftware, clicking on a flame from a random batch or on a formula or whatever (or following a tutorial without tweaking) and rendering. And "done, here's my fractal, it's so easy making fractals".
Given that I don't really care about what other people do and I'm more for "live and let live", I also don't want non-fractalist people to think that making fractals is all about clicking randomly and getting a nice image to render. No, it's not like that. Making fractals is the same as drawing or painting or sculpturing: it's about thinking and havi

You CAN Do It Too! Commissions, Exposure, and...
Do you feel like no one cares about your artwork? That no matter how hard you try, you'll never improve? Well, I've been there before.
A little less than a year ago, I didn't even have 100 watchers. It was tough trying to find commissions, even though I priced them around 10 - 100 an hour. Sure, I had some wonderful people supporting me (thank you very much for that!), but when I looked at the thousands of diehard fans the "popular" artists had, I felt kinda useless. It seemed like even a thousand watchers, or just being able to earn minimum wage was impossible. Sometimes I wanted to cry from all the effort I put in. I kept drawing and drawing but barely improving. I was frustrated and felt useless. But instead of giving up, I pushed myself even harder, and by God's grace it's starting to work out for me.
I now have over 16,000 amazing people encouraging me, and I know it's only a matter of tim
No more excuses, it's time to improve your art!You’re probably well acquainted with the old proverb “practice makes perfect.” And while I don’t fully believe that perfection is attainable, because the very notion of perfection is somewhat subjective, getting better at anything requires both time and effort. I’m going be very blunt here; if you want to improve your artistic skill you need to actually practice.
My heart goes out to everyone here who is struggling to improve so don’t feel that I’m purposely singling you out here. However throughout my time on dA (and in real life) I’ve met artists begging for advice on how to quickly improve and sadly when I tell them to begin practicing the excuse is always ‘well, I don’t really have the time for that.’
And I ain’t got time for yo attitude.
You do have the time

Basic CSS Style GuideIntroduction
CSS is a style language used to define the style and formatting of web pages. It is used in conjunction with HTML.
If we think of HTML as the building blocks of the web then, essentially, CSS is the painter and decorator. Very simply, HTML defines the structure of the page and CSS defines the style.
What I'll be helping you with here is getting to grips with the basics of CSS. I'll be explaining how use CSS as well as providing a number of examples that you can use to style your own web pages and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also written a brief glossary of terms and provided a list of useful links in case you wish to do some further reading.
A point of note is that while the information and examples I've given here apply to CSS use anywhere on the web, this guide itself is geared towards the use of CSS on deviantART. As such, and given that this h

JULY Challenge WATER last day to vote:icontransparentplz:
All works here
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th wins 25 .
These prizes c
Freelance Paychecks are RealA few weeks back while thinking about this journal, I came across a forum for paid photojournalism jobs. I left it some time later in complete shock. There I found posting after posting about jobs paying nothing, next to nothing, or promising payment and then paychecks never arriving in the mail. I sat there, closed the laptop lid, and thought for a long while.
I know I’m fortunate to be paid for what I do. A big part of this is because I specialize in something very few photographers are doing at a professional level. But what most people don’t realize is that even at this level a large percentage of my workload involves pay negotiations. There are contracts that took months of negotiation. Some took weeks, or a single week, or several days, or a flurry of emails or texts in just a few minutes.
Every single one of those initially low-balled me; offering me starting contracts at 10-20% of my regular rate. And despite publications th
