Edit Profile to Add Pride Flag

For many people, being LGBTQ+ can be difficult. Being open about who you are is a challenging point in many LGBTQ+ people’s lives, and many worry about what people will think, and who will or won’t accept them. Seeing LGBTQ+ supporters can be a meaningful reminder that it’s okay to be yourself.

At the beginning of the month, we asked deviants to create art with one of the six colors of the Pride flag. We’re overwhelmed and heart-warmed to see the outpouring of support of deviants and all of the stories that have been shared. Over 10,000 deviants submitted Pride art.

Today, we’re releasing a Pride flag made with love by the DeviantArt community — and you can now add it to your profile to show your support, or to just celebrate Pride!

We’d like to recognize and pay tribute to Gilbert Baker, who is the creator of the rainbow flag, an LGBTQ+ activist, and a fellow artist. Baker passed away on March 31st, but his memory lives on in every life he’s inspired.

A Year in Review

Join us as we celebrate a full year of Overwatch fan art! Meet the latest heroes through exclusive new portraits, and relive past holiday events via a custom fan art gallery—from last year’s 21 Days of Overwatch through the recent Overwatch Uprising!

DeviantArt Event

Introducing the Heroes of Overwatch

Last May, artists from all over the world joined forces with DeviantArt and Blizzard to bring deviants the 21 formidable heroes of Overwatch! Deviants gathered on each of 21 days to see artists’ unique interpretations of the original 21 heroes, culminating in a fan art celebration featuring artwork from the community!

Character Reveal

“Everone must find their cause.”

One of the founding members of Overwatch, Ana uses her skills and expertise to defend her home and the people she cares for. As the Omnic Crisis inflicted a heavy toll on Egypt, the country’s depleted and undermanned security forces relied on elite snipers for support. Among them was Ana Amari, who was widely considered to be the world’s best. Her superior marksmanship, decision-making, and instincts made her a natural selection to join the Overwatch strike team that would end the war.

Ana’s versatile arsenal allows her to affect heroes all over the battlefield. Her Biotic Rifle rounds and Biotic Grenades heal allies and damage or impair enemies; her sidearm tranquilizes key targets, and Nano Boost gives one of her comrades a considerable increase in power.

Seasonal Event

Heroes Beware!

When the shadows grow long and the nights grow cold…

And witches’ cauldrons bubble with potions untold…

When spirits and ghouls and abominations appear…

It can mean only one thing: Halloween is here!

The fright for the future took place this past Halloween. For three weeks, players celebrated the spookiest time of the year by explored the haunted streets of Hollywood and relive a chilling tale in Overwatch’s first-ever PvE brawl: Junkenstein’s Revenge!

November 4, 2016

Character Reveal

“Everything can be hacked… and everyone.”

Long before she took up the alias “Sombra,” she was among the thousands of children who were left orphaned in the aftermath of the Omnic Crisis. She survived by utilizing her natural gifts with hacking and computers. Now, with Talon’s extensive resources to call upon, Sombra can focus on her true goal: to unravel the conspiracy and use the power behind it to her own ends.

Stealth and debilitating attacks make Sombra a powerful infiltrator. Her hacking can disrupt her enemies, ensuring they’re easier to take out, while her EMP provides the upper hand against multiple foes at once. Sombra’s ability to Translocate and camouflage herself makes her a hard target to pin down.

December 13, 2016

Seasonal Event

“Grab a mug of hot cocoa, put on your favorite ugly sweater, and get ready to jingle all the way to Overwatch's Winter Wonderland!”

Overwatch got into the holiday spirit with a wintery seasonal event! They decked the halls of Hanamura and King’s Row, stuffed Loot Boxes full of festive goodies, and arranged an extra-special snowball fight for players and their friends.

January 24, 2017

Seasonal Event

“Gather your family and friends, heroes, and get ready to ring in the Year of the Rooster!”

Overwatch’s Lunar New Year celebrations brought players happiness, prosperity, and (most importantly) lots of fun! For the three weeks, players had the chance to collect over 100 commemorative cosmetic items, enjoy a firefight beneath some fireworks on Lijiang Tower, and work together in Overwatch’s Capture the Flag brawl mode.

March 21, 2017

Character Reveal

“Your safety is my primary concern.”

Built from parts of one of Numbani’s short-lived OR15 defense robots, Orisa is the city’s newest protector, though she still has much to learn. Eleven-year-old Efi Oladele, a brilliant girl whose early accomplishments in robotics and artificial intelligence had already earned her the Adawe Foundation’s “genius grant,” spent the bulk of her money to acquire a decommissioned OR15 bot. Believing Numbani needed a protector, Efi repaired and reconfigured the robot and installed a personality core that she had designed herself. She named Numbani’s newest hero Orisa.

Orisa serves as the central anchor of her team, and defends her teammates from the frontline with a protective barrier. She can attack from long range, fortify her own defenses, launch graviton charges to slow and move enemies, and deploy a Supercharger to boost the damage output of multiple allies at once.

April 11, 2017

Seasonal Event

Commencing playback in 3…2…1…

The latest seasonal event turned back the clock, giving players the chance to relive a pivotal moment in Overwatch history by exploring heroes’ backstories and joining Tracer on her very first mission in a new cooperative brawl!

This June, DeviantArt is proud to celebrate Pride Month, a time that honors and celebrates all who identify as LGBTQ+. We come together as artists and art appreciators, bonded through our shared love of creative expression. When the outside world is disheartening, sometimes a show of support and acceptance is all someone needs to feel understood and appreciated.

Later this month, we'll combine the community's creations and release a new Pride flag-themed widget for deviants to proudly display on their Profiles.

May the 4th: The Force Was Strong

Wed May 10, 2017, 9:00 AM by Heidi:iconheidi:

This May the 4th, we asked the DeviantArt community to pay tribute to all the iconic Star Wars characters and scenes we know and love.  After engaging in scruffy, nerf-herding levels of debate around who shot first and which aspects of the Star Wars universe should be embraced and which should go the way of Luke’s tauntaun, deviant Jedi the world over commented with thousands of pieces of galactically inspirational fan art. Thanks to the work of so many of you, a great balance was brought to the Force!


  • 88,677 journal pageviews
  • 1,171 journal favorites
  • 18,619 unique commenters
  • 14,427 deviants shared deviations
  • 22,567 deviations shared in comments
  • 5,625 unique deviations shared in comments

Hello DA. I'm having trouble logging in. Luckily I saved my password on my home which allows me to let me back in, but every time I login it says "please log in your username". I don't understand and I keep having to deal with over a week and I made sure I put in everything right, but it keeps saying the exact same thing. So all I'm asking is for help. It's all I want.

  • Who shot first: Han Solo or Greedo?
  • What aspects of the Star Wars Universe really get your midi-chlorians flowing, whether passionately or angrily?
  • What Star Wars fan art goes above and beyond capturing a scene or character perfectly?
1. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? It's the same thing; no one knows.
2. I get angry at the fact that Luke and Leia have crushes on each other... and they're siblings... it's weird to me (and yes, I know that they didn't know for a while)
3. I loved the one by QuintusCassius , because it portrays the scene perfectly, especially showing the empty, barren landscape of Tattoine.

And here is my #maythe4thbewithyou thing: <da:thumb id="678961951" format="200H">

Hey guys I've been asking for almost 2 weeks for a refund of this autobilled Core membership, please take it away and give me a refund I just need that money for something important :(
Vanilladucky Featured By Owner Edited Apr 10, 2017  Student
Ok, So something is going on with my account. Anytime I commission someone and they put Vanilladucky it doesn't send me the feedback. So which makes it hard for me cause I have to dig threw there profile and find if they did the commission or not. So which wastes like 2 minutes of my life that I could have spend doing something else.

So may you devaintart staff help me. Cause this is has been going on for a couple weeks now and it is getting annoying.
