Writing Reviews on dA
What is a Review?
Again, this is taken from the Project: Educate article:
A review is an evaluation of a product or publication based on personal experience and knowledge. It aims to be critical, not insulting, and is designed to help someone form an opinion of the product in question. Rants about products or companies do not belong here.
What's the Difference Between a Rant and a Review?
It sure does seem like we've been doing a lot of talking about rants lately, but there is a reason: there are a good number of "rants" cluttering the Nonfiction gallery as substitutes for editorials, reviews, or even structured philosophizing.  To be quite frank, it's driving me mad.  As one of the goals of this month is to better educate and introduce the Nonfiction categories, it seemed that ranting was a good place to start.
So what's the difference between a rant and a review?  Well, much lik

Subscriber Features and Version 6
First off, everyone here at deviantART would like to say THANK YOU!!!
We have received an overwhelming amount of enthusiasm for the launch of version 6 and believe that this has been our best-received launch to date.  
As of today, we have over 7200+ hearts on the launch article, and we’re closing in on 14,000 comments!  It’s nice to see that our blood, sweat and tears have been recognized and appreciated by you, our cherished community.  Big shout-outs to you all!
Fanfare aside, I am writing to also address a new feature of our v6 site that has concerned a few of our subscribers.  For those of you who don’t know what the hoopla is about, in our latest version of the site, we allow everyone, subscriber or not, to have thumbnails appear in the deviantWatch section of the message center, as well as a few other perks of a subscribed message center.
We apologize to all those subscribers that feel that

How to SELL your Work: tips from who's doing it!

This article was made within Project Educate Week of Artistic Nudes in order to help and educate the community (not only the ArtNude's)...
It is also part of a series of articles being posted elsewhere around dA, by various deviants. I'm linking them all up in my journals (especially this one: ) so that you can have them all in one place in case they don't get your eye in the midst of the many articles in the News page!
Here we are: you want to sell your artwork but don't know how-to!
Common sense gives you that the first thing you'll need to have is artwork of quality. While some people may buy poor quality artwork for a first time they won't do it twice.
Second thing you'll have to consider is that you must provide variety when assembling your shop – whether it is online or at a store and/or gallery out there "In Real Life"

Did You Know: Artistic Nudes

As part of the Project Educate Artistic Nudes Segment Week I present you   a short compilation of did you knows and also some illustrative features!!!
Did you know…
Did you know arachnid15's name is Steven Perry and that he is one of the Artistic Nudes Gallery Directors? Did you also know that arachnid is the scientific name for spiders?
Did you know Body Landscapes aka Bodyscapes are the portrayal of the human figure as if it was a landscape and NOT a body in front of a landscape?
Did you know that Mapplethorpe told ARTnews in late 1988: "I don't like that particular word 'shocking.' I'm looking for the unexpected. I'm looking for things I've never seen before…I was in a position to take those pictures. I felt an obligation to do them."?

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 17, 2008, 7:46 PM
Thank you very much for all your kind thoughts and good wishes, to save a bit of work I won't go through and answer all comments individually...forgive please?

Some wanted to know about the blackout...I have no idea what caused it...I have never even fainted before. I am now going to have to have heaps of medical tests done because until I get the all clear from the doctors, I am not permitted to drive. I still feel a bit under the weather so it will still be a bit hit and miss here for the moment. :) joke folks, I blacked out driving my car yesterday on my way to do the shopping, hit a tree and ended up in hospital overnight....I am OK only minor injuries and a bit of shock but will need a couple of days to rest and please forgive if I leave notes and messages unanswered for a bit.

I shall be back...behave while I am away!:)

Hello I am new to Deviantart!
I am Rachel Wilson, man do I ever enjoy introducing myself.

If you want to watch, then that is wonderful! Because I may not be perfect at drawing or doing art, but doesn't mean I can't learn in the process and not stop doing what I do my honest best on.

Oh before I forget, I am looking for people to join my new group called RandomArtsFamily. You may join, your more than welcomed to. I really want people to join because I want them to just have whatever it is they are good at into the group, because whatever it is, it's fine. The more people join, the merrier. I don't care what it is, just come join, because whatever it is you do, it's already beautiful and amazing.

Alrighty I gotta go, be yourself!

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
