Happy New Year from deviantART!

:star: Taking a look back!


Before we look ahead to the expanse of artistic potential that is the new year, we wanted to look back at some of the amazing things the deviantART community accomplished in 2011.  We continue to be humbled, year after year, by the nurturing power of the community home grown by deviants like you.  Artists and art enthusiasts of every style you can imagine consider deviantART their home on the Internet for all things creative, and their talent and enthusiasm inspire our community to greater heights than ever thought possible.

Happy New Year!

Please take a moment to look up what's happening in Canada with potential passing of Stop Online Piracy Act (Bill C10) because it will very likely affect ALL deviantArt users. Once you've done that please also consider signing the petition and passing it along (OpenMedia is in charge of the petition).

We don't want dA to be blocked or worse over no fault of it's own occasionally having a dishonest or ignorant user posting suspicious content. Under SOPA they would take action without warrant and ask questions later (I wouldn't trust that process to be as speedy as the dead halt of service).

Apologies for not including links here myself but I don't want to be flagged as spam for being a concern community member.
