Witches of East End Contest

Tue Jul 15, 2014, 2:01 PM

Illustrate an Edgar Allan Poe scene, story, or element from "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Black Cat," or "The Raven" that you would expect to see in the world of The Witches of East End. The winning work will be displayed in an episode of the series perhaps as a picture, book illustration, tarot card, or some other fanciful way chosen by the creative team of the show.

Edgar Allan Poe was a master of the mysterious and the macabre. The witches of East End would certainly indulge in the study of the master. Re-familiarize yourself with these three classic Edgar Allan Poe stories and absorb the context for the world of The Witches of East End.

Based on Melissa de la Cruz's New York Times best-selling novel, Witches of East End centers on the Beauchamp family, where in season one sisters Freya and Ingrid discovered they are witches with ancient magical powers. With the help of their mother Joanna and Aunt Wendy, they learned how to cultivate their craft and work together to defeat unearthly enemies seeking revenge on their family, while keeping their abilities a secret from the town.

This season, with the portal to Asgard open, what comes through will forever change the lives of the Beauchamps. Darkness surrounds East End as a new stranger arrives. Joanna is still weak with poison in her blood as the Beauchamps search desperately for a cure. With the death of Penelope, Killian and Dash's warlock powers return. #DarknessIsRising

DeviantART Presents Artists’ Alley

The heavy metal enchanted trace leukocytes (midichlorians) that course through the systems of all deviants are coming to life as internal compasses begin to all bend all time and space in one direction, to one set of co-ordinates, to one ultimate destination:

star-4


It’s time for the caravans to organize the clans in their multitudes and for the outlier lone wolves to pack provisions. It’s time for the cosplayers to retrieve their Wookie suits and Pegasister Wings from the cleaners and for true fans to organize their maps and plans for ultimate zeitgeist intake. And it’s time for the heart and soul of Comic-Con, the artists and writers themselves to gather their wares and wonders and set their sights on pieces of prime real estate in Artists’ Alley, the Mecca of Comic-Con’s holy and unholy sojourners.


It’s time for you to make a decision.


The Universe requests your spiritual presence in a communal elevation of the global pop arts movement.  You can do your part in making the human connections that make the world a better place.


Or you can spend some me-time in the inflatable backyard swimming pool.

Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us.
  • In response to the Discuss topic, most deviants said that they don't spend much time managing their Favourites, outside of occasionally creating or deleting Collections. 
  • Some deviants mentioned that being able to search in Favourites or create a subfolder in Collections would be helpful in terms of organizing one's Favourites. Both are included in our list of common suggestions!

Discuss!


Scraps

Do you post your creations to your Scrapbook? What reason(s) do you have for posting them there, as opposed to your main Gallery? Do you move deviations from your Gallery to your Scrapbook, and if so, why? Do you ever move things from your Scraps into your Gallery?

As I noted in my last journal, there are some big -- and exciting!! -- changes on the way for deviantART. Er, DeviantArt.  :P (Lick)

The team here at DeviantArt continues to listen to your feedback plus we met with a crew of super-deviants in NYC last month (check out a pic below :-) (Smile) and got a full, insightful download.  Then, we thought long and hard on how to pave a kindred and inspiring direction.  As always, you are the center of it all -- and how to connect you with your community.  

Ok, getting into it, I want to share a sneak peek on work-in-progress (as in not final!) designs for the new Today page and to hear what everybody thinks.


Fella Version                            Llama Version

Hp10 by Leelor     Today-page Dark by marioluevanos   

Our intent with the new Today page is to better connect you with other deviants in a much better looking page (yes, a design refresh was overdue!).  

What do you think?  We’re listening!
  • What excites you about the Today page’s redesign?  
  • What would you change?
  • What kind of content would you like to see represented?

-- A  Spyed (deviantART CEO)

You choose the distribution of your Motion Books:

For free:
