Points gathered here will go towards prizes and subs for groups I'm in, thanky donatey miscellaneous goodness and other lovely things for lovely people.
Donations are gratefully received and kindly appreciated but never expected. I tend to buy Points for giving rather than rely on others for them but your support means a lot to me and all the Points I gather here are given back to the dA community. Thank you!
The amount of 500 points is an arbitrary number pulled out of thin air/the ground/the back of my brain cause there was a box that asked for a number and I never say no to a box asking for something.
PHOTOGRAPHER | WRITER | DA COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER
Queer, winter baby, eclectic witch. Head full of storms. A large coffee please.
I've been on dA since 2005 and a Senior Member since 2007. I'm currently a Community Volunteer looking after General Photography (send me Daily Deviation suggestions!) and I've CV'd twice before, looking after Photography > Horror & Macabre (November 2008 - June 2010) and Photography > Darkroom (June 2012 - May 2013).
I believe art is for everyone and should be all about exploration and experimentation. As a member of the Community Relations team, I'm on a mission to support and encourage you in your creative endeavours. I love getting to know awesome DA people, so feel free to say hello!
My username, and the name I worked and did all my online photography stuff under, was (until late 2016) RockstarVanity. So if you see that name on watermarks, in photo descriptions or elsewhere on my profile, that's why.
My blog, photography and creative writing can be found at TanyaSimoneSimpson.com and I'm also on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Medium and Ello
I'm also on Snapchat, in case you're interested in the minutiae of my existence. My username there is tanyassimpson.
Welcome to March 2017's CRPhotography newsletter, a round-up of photography goodness on DA from the last month. The newsletter is divided into handy sections to help you browse photography news and features from the last month. The links with a Fella icon are official CRPhotography articles and the newsletter is illustrated with beautiful pictures from our Photograph of the Day collection.
There's been some confusion around wording used in TechCrunch's reporting of the DeviantArt and Wix story.
Their article includes: "...Wix will open up DeviantArt’s repository of art and creative community to the Wix platform, giving Wix’s users access to that work to use in their own site building."
Please know that the DeviantArt Submission Policy, Terms of Service and Copyright Policy all remain the same. Deviants continue to own their own works. In the future, there's a possibility Wix might provide opportunities for you to license your work -- only if you want to -- to more people around the world. And, there will be opportunities for Wix users to join DeviantArt and make the community stronger.

DeviantArt and Wix: With a Kindred SpiritEarlier today, Wix.com announced its acquisition of DeviantArt, and I want you to know how incredibly positive this development is for our community, for the platform, and for all artists who haven’t yet become deviants!

We need to talk about the elephant in the room. You know, the one that’s been sitting on us for the past couple years. Since we’re all
