Let's bring it back to the old school my peoples. The days when we'd write real Journals, and link to all kinds of stuff on the Internet like as if we were Google. Get your scroll wheel ready, web-style.

DeviantArt is on a M)&H3R 4/_|<126! RAMPAGE!  A NEW Beginning. If you knew what I know, you'd already be screaming. The reavening is upon us and there is no where to hide. Thanks for your feedback on the SNEAK PEEK of the new Today page, btw. We've reviewed all comments, made changes, and will be ready to share more soon, so keep an eye out! Another comp set from The NEW DeviantArt is on its way to you soon. ;) 

Comic-Con 2014, July 24-27th

^ Does this guy look like he had a good time??? You will too as we journey through 
DeviantArt's Artists' Alley, and take a look at our Superstars of DeviantArt, We
The Fandom
and Fan Art Law PII panels.  The first appearance of FELLA, the launch
of MILK FOR THE UGLY to riveting success, and 
my girlfriend o-KOUKLA-o inspired,
scared and twisted Comic-Con as The Joker with
her friend Diana as Bane!


The DeviantArt / Madefire Preview Night Party!

Thunder wasn't all we brought, we also brought Madefire to the creator world during this
con, and here's the party that  kicked that off! Wait, is that a line around the block?

DeviantArt Presents ... Milk for the Ugly, on Madefire!

We're very, very proud to Present this motion book on many, many levels. Our first major
hit with MADEFIRE from the community, but that's only the beginning. This is now
the #1 Motion Book on the Madefire platform. Greater viewership than Batman
My Little PonyTransformers and all other titles found right here on DeviantArt right
along side our very own vesner & akreon's Milk for the Ugly

Untitled By Shyree-d7syh9u by spyed
^ vesner & akreon, authors of the BRILLIANT Milk for the Ugly motion book get 
glomped by our very own damphyr from the upcoming We The Fandom series that's
as of now un-announced. Whoops.

The world is changing. Creators are directly in charge. And Milk for the Ugly is the
spark on DeviantArt that Madefire.

:angry: 

But don't take it from me, let's ask the media!

Fella Makes a GRAND Entrance! 

For the first time ever....... Introducing.... FELLA!!!

FELLA making his first real world appearance other than in plushie form for the first
time in history! Appropriate, we think. In case you are wondering, he's the most
loving soul on Earth and hugging him felt great! 
I love deviantART!

DeviantArt Artists' Alley 2014

Photos apparently can't do this thing justice on the whole, but if you put it all 
together in your mind from all the pieces here, you'll appreciate the beauty 
of what is happening in Artists' Alley. Please be sure to read my past journal 
about this alley called: The Love that Binds SDCC's Artists' Alley. A million 
thanks, and all our love to clydene - always!

Untitled By Bittygirla D7sz2wt F By Endosage-d7t0n by spyed
^ We're missing makepictures in this photo - But without him, and without
techgnotic who is standing next to me here, we couldn't pull off Artists Alley each
year. SO, a great big thank you to both makepictures and techgnotic - Always 
amazing, always a pleasure.

I sincerely want you to see how packed the Alley was this year. But in an epic fail,
we didn't actually capture many long or wide shots this time around. If you were at 
the con and you nabbed some, please link them for us! Yikes!!!! This video I took
is pretty much the only one. Sorry it's not that great!

^ LiamSharp - Chief Creative Officer for Madefire.
Truly a gentleman and a scholar. Here he tells us the ways of life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness ... in bed!

Quite seriously, Liam's contributions to the DeviantArt community recently absolutely
astound me. Perhaps one of the most important conversations happening on 
DeviantArt, and easily the most important conversation happening in the entire 
comic book industry is the one that is happening right now on LiamSharp's Journal.
Go to his Journal and start with a post written on June 4th titled, "I Got Angry."
Engage in the dialog. Read what people are saying in response. Why? Because if
you want to be on the bleeding edge of storytelling, LiamSharp is the key to the door
of the future.

BTW the NEW Sketchbook is out, and I'm just insanely in love with it. Worth your
time to check it out or to upgrade your copy! autodesk was with us in Artists Alley
this year and the artists using their software were just raving about it.
It's a new day in the digital arts! Go

along with davegibbons (most notably known for The Watchmen.)

Unfortunately as of this writing I don't have any photos for two of the panels, 
I will be updating once I do. They are the FANS, LOVE, AND THE LAW panel, 
and the MAYA 3D MODELING SOFTWARE ft. FELLA panel. They were great!




 Party!

What else happened??
Untitled By Shyree-d7syhs3 by spyed
Is that the legendary Kim Jung Gi
Screen shot 2014-04-09 at 1.17.16 AM 2 by spyed
Artgerm says that he just can't stand this guy because there is simply nothing 
to learn from him. he explains; how can you learn when Kim Jung Gi simply 
walks up to a blank canvas, and draws an entire world without any process at all!
he sees his drawing in his mind, and he puts it to paper directly. there is no 
process! you can't learn when there is just genius, and no process! - great point. 
And I hear he may be joining DeviantArt soon, so you can be marveled and learn 
nothing from him other than f34r of true, raw, hardcore deviousness. muahaha;) 

It was an honor to meet you, sir! we hope you will join our community and offer 
whatever you are willing, to our humble and loving home of DeviantArt!

Speaking of Artgerm - Check out the key-art for the Comic-Con campaign that he 
made for us. A few weeks back, it topped the Popular 24 hour charts when 
he posted this:
