A few months ago, we released Watch Recommendations to new deviants -- a feature that suggests deviants to watch for those who have just joined DeviantArt. The aim being to match new deviants with active deviants -- ones who represent the depth and breadth of all DeviantArt.com has to offer.
Starting today, we’re adding deviant recommendations to your watch.
The new Watch Recommendations will display occasionally in your watch, suggesting deviants you might be interested in following. Deviants who appear as recommendations include people who have proven to be friendly and engaging in the community, as well as deviants who have reached a standard of artistic excellence.
If you find a deviant that you’re not interested in, simply click the “x” button and you won’t see that deviant again.
The Watch Recommendations feature is experimental, and we’ll be continuously improving the way it displays and how it selects deviants. Eventually, we’ll make recommendations more personalized to you, so you can discover new artists that are relevant to your interests. Until then, we’d love to hear your feedback on how we can improve this feature.
In the Sapporo CANvas Contest, we challenged you to combine the past and present to reimagine the essence of Sapporo! Deviants, inspired by the Sapporo can, created amazing artwork combining elements of both classic and modern Japan. With numerous beautiful entries highlighting Japan’s rich history, the judges had a hard time picking only three pieces that turned the Sapporo can and/or its elements into a work of art. It wasn’t easy, but after some deliberation, the Sapporo Marketing team was able to decide on the three winners that perfectly embody the essence of Sapporo.
Congratulations, winners, and thank you to everyone who entered!

In the Rick and Morty Intedimensionally Dysfunctional contest, you were challenged to pervert the laws of the universe by illustrating Rick, Morty, and/or the rest of the Smith family in a new and crazy dimension! With many fans of the show on DeviantArt, artists created a series of bizarre adventures for the family—from hilarious mishaps featuring multiples of the family to frantic escapes from the varied creatures of the many dimensions.
The semi-finalists judges from DeviantArt had a hard time narrowing it down to just 30 entries, but after some long deliberation, they succeeded in picking 30 outstanding pieces. From there, Justin Roiland, co-creator of Rick and Morty, picked the eight crazy dimensions that stood out above the rest!
Congratulations, semi-finalists, and thank you to everyone who entered!
