In the "What Does Your Artistic Journey Look Like?" Challenge, we asked the DeviantArt community to show us their personal creative journeys. We selected 50 deviants and integrated their work into a fantastical collaborative roadway under the direction of Keith Fenter. The result: an eclectic combination of hopes, desires and achievements in the arts reflecting the core of the community that is DeviantArt.

Judges' Comments

"Here we have a clear window into this artist's journey. We get to see all the way back to his humble beginnings, struggling with drawing stick figures, up to the point where he's totally nailed line, color, and perspective. With a wonderfully clever and pleasing composition, this piece even gives us the chance to see the artist dodge an obstacle on the way down his creative road."

Judges' Comments

"Wylielise mingles both traditional and digital platforms to create a beautiful marriage of old and new, showing both in technique and illustration that there are many roads you can traverse and several ways to get there on your own artistic journey."

Judges' Comments

"This piece covers various mediums of art and shows how an artist must experiment with a variety of materials throughout their artistic journey. The composition of intricately placed details tells a story most artists can relate to."





In the Fantasia: Music Evolved Billboard Challenge, we asked you to turn lyrics by Lady Gaga, Lorde, and Frozen into an original piece of art! There were hundreds of beautiful entries, and after some deliberation, our judges decided on these three amazing winners. Each winning entry was displayed in a billboard on the deviantART homepage, and the winners will also each receive $1,000 USD! We would like to congratulate our winners, and thank everyone who participated in this contest!

In our continuous effort to improve the DeviantArt experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.

Change Log

  • Thumbnails of deviations being sold as Prints would not always display properly. Fixed by trezoid
  • On the Channels page, the link to Daily Deviations would not direct to the proper page. Fixed by outgoingcoyote
  • When browsing deviations at Full View with endless scrolling, clicking to Favourite a deviation wouldn't work after scrolling past the first page. Fixed by baclap
  • Some visitors to the mobile website were incorrectly being told that their operating system was outdated and were forwarded to the old mobile website. Fixed by baclap
  • There were various small bugs when trying to log in from the mobile website. Fixed by trezoid

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the commentary you left for us.
  • Deviants were positive about the additions to the search bar at the top of the site.
  • Generally, deviants liked the ability to edit the Activity widget on their Profile Page, though a few deviants mentioned that they would like to display less than five items in the widget.
  • In response to the Discuss topic, deviants generally liked the idea of being able to see Daily Deviations when browsing the Watch Feed. A few deviants also said that they would like to see top news from the Journal Portal as well.
  • Some deviants said that they might like to see recommended deviations or deviants to watch when browsing their Watch Feed, if based on art or artists they've already interacted with.

Discuss!

Future of the Profile Page

What do you want to see in the future, for your Profile Page? Are there specific elements you would like to be able to include on your Profile Page that are not currently offered? Are there improvements you'd like to see made to features that are already offered?

Goblins vs. Gnomes by SpicyGingerr

Create Your Own Mischievous Goblin or Gnome!

The battle has been declared. Side with either the cunning and dangerous Goblins or the clever and wacky Gnomes. Create your own Goblin or Gnome inspired by Hearthstone's new expansion pack, Goblins vs Gnomes, and include the invention they would use to confuse, confound, or explode their opponents.

It's up to you: pick as your inspiration the measured ingenuity of the Gnomes or the trademarked fearlessness of Goblins. Make a new invention or reinterpret an old one.

Step 1

Learn more about the characters and inventions used in the game, Hearthstone Goblins vs Gnomes. View the cards provided above and consult the additional resources link. You may use as reference but not actually duplicate Gnomes, Goblins, inventions, and other visual materials currently used in the game.

Step 2

Create an original artwork inspired by the Hearthstone Goblins vs Gnomes game in the form of a portrait or an illustration of a single Goblin or Gnome character with one of their mischievous inventions. You may use any visual medium excluding cosplay, photographs, or moving images. Photographs of an entry made in another medium are acceptable.
