Help a Deviant
garrenn needs to move out of her current situation, and has opened plushie commissions (paypal).

Aquarika needs money for medical treatment. She's doing icons and adoptables commissions (paypal, or points through Premium Content).

Please do what you can to help them :huggle: 
Thanks to PirateLotus-Stock and Operia for letting me know.

:heart: Thank you! :heart:

Thanks so much everyone for the overwhelming amount of love and support; after announcing my internship, and after the $ymbol change a week later. The response from the community and fellow staff has been amazing and humbling :)
It's been crazy, only about two weeks ago I couldn't have dreamt of this, and now I'm working alongside $Heidi and '$Toby' on some of the many awesome projects they have going. If some people think that marketing consists of pretending to be awesome... well, on dA it consists of actually doing awesome things. :lmao: The things I've been involved with so far really do help make dA a better place, and that I get to help organise those is the single best thing of my internship :squee: Yup, this will be a happy couple of months. small c colon by stevanov
It also helps that my collegues are pretty awesome. :D one highlight was when Toby discovered that I am, in fact, a robot (seriously though, who ever thought this was a good idea for an error message?).

A few of you have asked me to keep a blog with my experiences, or to write a journal about it at the end - I aim to do at least one :D how many there'll be exactly simply depends on how much I will have to share :dummy:

Question is unrelated: Have you come across great underappreciated artists recently?

:la: Love that screencap about robots lol.

So, in browsing the front page for the newest art that has been submitted, I came across two pretty awesome deviants: ~TanyaGreece has very few watchers but has come fantastic art - [link] was what caught my eye... and then ~Y0P0 just joined this week so has no watchers (or anything except two cute pieces of art) [link] and [link] ...

I'm glad to know that :devart: is doing awesome things. I've discovered that the professional design community (or, at least, the professional design community that I'm exposed to) thinks little of dA and the amazing work that can be found here. Most of my professors disapprove of me even being on here and building my portfolio here, and tell me that if, on my resume, I link my portfolio to this website, my chances of being hired or getting an internship at a good design studio will be shot down. Of course, I disagree, but for now I'm laying low. ^^;

:iconnamenotrequired:
namenotrequired Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012  Student Interface Designer
I am, thanks! :D

Yeah, I've heard of that before. The great power of dA is that everyone can participate and start from nothing and learn here. That's great for many people (and it's an important part of the core values), but professionals may prefer to see their students on more elite places. Then again that's one important reason why dA has groups, so you can choose if you want to be part of more inclusive or more elite groups. And yeah, it also differs per place of course; there are also many teachers that encourage their students to use dA.
And dA itself is primarily a community rather than a portfolio of course; I'm not sure if linking it will be a benefit. Unless you have something noteworthy that is. For those with experience as a Community Volunteer, or with experience managing a large group successfully, for example, it can be very useful.:nod:
