Interested for more Artist Interviews?Hey everyone!
As some of you may know, I did a series of Artist interviews during our Project Educate Week along with my C&C partner alexandrasalas. I interviewed Dreamwork's animation Arthur Fong, Sony Pictures Animation Sam Kallis, a famous Thai CG artist and illustrator Victorior and a Brazilian author who is working as a leader for various successful comic projects FelipeCagno.
All of the interviews gathered a great number of readers and I am happy that they were all well accepted by the DeviantART community. And it's definitely worth trying to do more so as we get to know more insights and various experiences from the people who are continuously making various creative fields alive.
So before anything else, I would like to ask a few questions:
Are you interested for more Artist/Writer interviews such as the 4 articles above?If yes, then
Your happiest moment recently?So I really wanted to test out the new Comments feature here on dA and I thought of, "Why not make it unique as well?"
So yeah, I want to know what are your happy moments recently? Did you meet a new friend or did you meet a friend from ages ago? Did your crush smile at you? Or did you go to the mountains and felt peace and calmness within you?
There are a lot of things that can make us happy. They can be grand moments but happiness is also found even in the simplest of times. What matters most is that you felt it and made you feel whole :')
go go go, let us know

With So Much Love IIHello everyone! I hope you are all doing well I would like to take this opportunity to share my favorite deviations from last year. I really intend to share this before December ended, but due to my vacation and stuffs, I was not able to make it but told myself that I must, in any way, find a way to share these amazing deviations that caught my attention throughout 2013.
This is my second year end feature and you can check the first one here and help me revisit all those golden feelings that I felt after seeing those feature pieces.
And to quote:
This collection is not just an ordinary collection for me. Do you know the feeling whenever you see something and you'll immediately have an indescribable feeling just by looking at that thing? It happens rarely on my part and that's why, I need a collection so I can collect and check them from time to time so I will remember the great feelings whenever I s

External Hard Drive problems: help neededHello!
Calling all geeks and all the techy guys out there :____:
I'll make this really short and quick. So the thing is, my hard drive is not responding. Though I can still see in the "Safely Remove" section on windows, my hard drive is not showing up on my Windows explorer. But when I checked the Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management, I saw this:
So the status of my HDD is now UNALLOCATED and I really don't want to repartition this as I will definitely lose all my files. I was able to still use this yesterday but after plugging it in in a Macbook Pro, i cannot access it anymore. We were able to do this without any problems before so I didn't have any "fear" of plugging it in a MAC laptop again. IDK if that was the reason, but it just happened that it was the case, so I am telling this as it might help us see the possibilities.
So my question i
20 truths, 5 lies game (WIN POINTS!) -Last dayEDIT: TODAY'S THE LAST DAY
mirz-alt posted this on twitter and I thought that this is fun
So I still have some spare points here so I thought of having this as a contest as well. XD This is just for fun!
I will be posting 25 facts about me. But there's a catch. Only 20 things are the real "facts". Meaning, 5 out of 25 are lies.Figure out which among the 25 items are the lies. Just give me the numbers in the comments section.Deviants who will enumerate 5 lies in the comments below will be automatically included in the raffle. Answers with less than or more than 5 items will be disqualifiedOnly 1 comment per person. However, you can talk to other players by replying to their comments Once your guess is posted, I'll give you a number for the raffle.Have fun!
In the event that a person can guess all the lies correctly, he/she will win 200 points (only one person can win this)!

Critiquing, do's and dont'sSo i almost always request critiques on my art, and i also get a lot of them too (thank you so much guys/galls) and i've noticed some critiquers have some misconceptions about critiques, their role, how to do it, etc.
Now i don't want to critique someone's critiuque, i rarely do that because people take it as being defensive about the art that is critiqued. So i'll just make this journal to hopefully inform/educate some of you about critiquing.
-If an artist requests critiques, and you have something to say about it then do use the critique widget to leave a critique. Don't critique in the comment's section though. I know some of you are more shy, but if you're bold enough to write a critique then put it in its proper place, that's what the widget is fore. This does not apply to artists who do not have a premium and can't requests critiques through the widget.
-Do read the artists comments on the artwork first. They might offer hints on what

ALL INFO ABOUT THE THEMATIC FOLDER HERE
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge at TheFavouriteShowcase: instead of using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th win
Honey, We're Getting a MonsterfancyQUACKS
A really hungry one...
Naughty monsters are running rampant in the city again - you know the kind! They're short, noisy and make constant mischief on our doorsteps; begging for candy despite buying perfectly good pumpkins the same day. What's their dastardly plan for all that food? They're up to no good and must be stopped.
We should feed the trick-or-treaters - to hungry, real monsters! There's a critter-shaped hole to this plan: we don't actually have any real monsters. But all we need are your designs to put into my Monster Making Machine to release them into the suburbs! Trick-or-treaters - gobbled up for good!
How does this work? I'm glad you asked. The "Monster Maker 2000" is my old, modified microwave and this invention will create flesh-and-blood monsters from designs. A little energy combined with your designs will help bring our glorious abomination to life.

8 Legal Cases Every Photographer Should KnowSource: http://petapixel.com/2014/10/28/8-legal-cases-every-photographer-know/
Understanding your legal rights as a photographer can often be confusing and overwhelming. From copyright infringement to fair use to DMCA, there are a number of legal concepts that every photographer should be familiar with. Here are eight important legal cases that are illustrative of these concepts and the importance of registering your copyright.
1. Andrew Paul Leonard v Stemtech Health Sciences, Inc
Key concept: Copyright infringement and registration
Microphotography expert Andrew Paul Leonard’s photographs of bone marrow stem cells were stolen and used on the Stemtech website and other marketing materials.
The court ruled in Leonard’s favor for copyright infringement awarding him $1.6m in actual damages. However, he was denied statutory damages because he didn’t register his images until after the infringement occurred.
2. Nussenzweig v DiCorcia
Key concepts: Right of Privacy/Publici

Our First Ever Comment Contest As many of you know, around August-October, we host a yearly Relativity art contest. We must delay the contest this year due to personal issues and other commitments that we want to get through. But, we didn't just want to let our anniversary pass without doing something.
We are going to have a comment contest! The nice thing about this is that EVERYONE can enter, even if you are not good at art or writing. The only thing you need to do is leave comments. There will be two categories: ART and STORIES. Each category will have slightly different rules, so pay attention. You MAY enter both categories. The idea is to leave comments on Relativity artwork and/or stories. Everyone who qualifies will be entered into a drawing to win points prizes. We also have a special grand-prize up for grabs.
All comments must be NEW. You cannot enter with old comments. They must have been posted on or after October 24, 2014 to qualify.
