deviantART Headquarters
Chaotic motion by Crist-JRoger
DeviantArt will be undergoing scheduled maintenance on Wednesday, April 8th from approximately 11:00 PM to 11:30 PM Pacific.

During this time, DeviantArt.com and the DeviantArt Mobile App will be in read-only mode — you'll be unable to submit, comment, or +fav deviations (or take other actions that require being logged-in.) However, you'll still be able to browse and search the site, and we encourage you to find and share artwork that you enjoy, bringing attention to artists you love!

This scheduled maintenance will allow us to test changes to our backend systems to make DeviantArt faster and more reliable. Rest assured that none of your data will be affected or lost during this time.

Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to providing you with an even better DeviantArt experience!

     

Thank you for your patience. DeviantArt's scheduled maintenance is now complete. Please commence DeviantArting!

Change Log

  • Unwatching or blocking a deviant will now remove any of their messages from your Message Center and Watch Feed.
  • For new deviants, if the first attempt to upload artwork happened by way of dragging a file into Sta.sh, the upload would fail because the deviant would not be prompted to agree to our Submission Policy. Fixed by baclap
  • The "..." button in Journal History widgets (and other locations) would send you to the page you were already on, regardless of what page number you put in. Fixed by kemayo
  • When browsing items in Sta.sh by using the "Next" and "Previous" buttons, editing an item's description would make the "Next" and "Previous" buttons stop working. Fixed by Alisey
  • In Gallery Folders, the folder's title would sometimes overlap on top of the thumbs in the folder. Fixed by outgoingcoyote
  • Immediately after adding a deviation to a Collection from the "Add to Favourites" button drop down menu, clicking in the area where the drop menu appeared would remove the deviation from your Favourites. Fixed by outgoingcoyote

Your Feedback

Thanks for the feedback on last week's Site Update!
  • In response to the Discuss topic, deviants primarily said they use RedBubble or Society6, although a few deviants mentioned Vistaprint and a few other sites. The reasoning for each varied, depending on ease of use, print quality, or profit margin.
  • Astralseed and a few other deviants said that their preference for which site to use involved which sites offered printed clothing options.

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

  • Preview images weren't working for Film & Animation deviations, when shared to other sites. Fixed by baclap
  • For a short period, Journal Skins were not properly restricted to Premium Members. Fixed by kemayo
  • Users who bought Prints without creating a DeviantArt account were unable to access their order history. Fixed by Alisey
  • The Sta.sh Writer toolbar was not aligned properly on the Write a Journal Entry page. Fixed by kemayo
  • Deviation images used in the DeviantID widget would not correctly link to their respective deviation pages. Fixed by outgoingcoyote

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update

  • In response to last week's Discuss topic, some deviants said that they would like to see improvements made to the submission process on the mobile website, such as making it easier to select a category. (It's worth noting that the Submit menu is currently hidden on the mobile website because a substantial amount of mobile users are using the site from older versions of operating systems, which don't allow for file upload.)
  • A few deviants noted that larger x buttons in the Message Center would make checking messages an easier process. 

Discuss!

Prints Services

Besides DeviantArt, what is your favorite website to use for their print services? What feature(s) in particular do you value on said site?

DeviantArt Presents: Borderlands The Handsome Collection Collection











Return to Pandora with the release of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. Now available in North America, this new release brings Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! to the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One, complete with fresh graphics and familiar faces.



Borderlands 2 focuses on four new Vault Hunters exploring Pandora as they attempt to overthrow the regime of Hyperion commander-in-chief Handsome Jack, where Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! focuses on Jack's rise to power. In addition to the main games, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection also features every piece of downloadable content originally made available for both games, and the option to port save files from the previous console generations to the new ones.



DeviantArt is home to a large, varied group of fan artists who have rendered their favorite Borderlands characters in their style. From Vault Hunters to NPCs, artists have taken Pandora's best and baddest and created a world of works that even Crazy Earl would be impressed by. Check out the art collection below, and be sure to grab your copy of The Handsome Collection!














































































































































































































 



 















Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is the essential Borderlands compilation and includes the definitive versions of both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, built specifically for next-gen consoles.
