B) Buy Points
C) Donate Points
A) deviantART Account
1. To buy points you need a deviantART account. Log in to yours or create one as below.
B) Buy Points
1. Go with the mouse over Shop in the top bar and select points.
2. On the Points page, click "+Points" on the amount of points you want.
You can choose a combination of different amounts. Want to buy $45 worth of points? Choose '2,000' once and '800' twice. If you want to remove something you added, click the grey "-" next to the green "+Points". You can change the currency in your settings.
3. When you're done, hit the yellow "Checkout" button to go to the checkout page. The first step is to review your order. If everything's ok, hit 'Continue'.
4. Verify payment details. You can pay with Credit Card or Paypal (I personally always use Paypal to use my debit card instead of my credit card). This process depends a bit on your payment choice and details so I won't discuss

Sta.sh is a new system for submitting art to dA. You can find the link in your 'submit' menu. Why use it?Main advantages are that you can submit deviations faster, from more places (currently with apps for android, iPhoto, mac, iOS, etc., as well as from email and FTP) and you can keep them private if you want.

#Fella - About: CommentingComments are an integral part of our everyday deviantART life - we communicate with each other through comments, give and get feedback, critiques, or have the most interesting conversation whose origin is one simple comment on a deviation or journal.
This article is all about commenting, including a few commenting tips and thoughts on commenting by fellow deviants, as well as some resoures you might find helpful for commenting.
Keep in mind what kind of deviation it is you're commenting on, as there are different things to focus on in a visual artwork (e.g. colours, shading) than a literature piece (wording, grammar), for example. (DerangedSenpai)

Photography Newsletter - Dec - JanA Photographer in New York has built 'sets' on sidewalks using discarded furniture.
