Hello dear Watchers and other lovely deviants.
I’m currently working on my Master’s thesis at the Royal School of Library and Information Science. My thesis is about the correlation between the types of keywords added to deviations and the types of search terms used when searching on deviantART. But for this to be a success I need the help of deviants who use deviantARTs search function on a regular basis.
What I need you to do:
(Receive a document from my Stash where you will: ) Provide age, gender, country of residence as well as the date your participation in the study begins and ends.Write down every search query you make on d
Share keywords, get comments and win pointsEDIT March 6th: 76 deviants have shared keywords so far, but I still need more. Prizes have been expanded, and will be expanded again when 100 deviants have shared. Please consider helping if you can, either by sharing your keywords (if you haven't already) or by sharing the message. Any help is appreciated.
Hello dear Watchers and other lovely deviants.
Help a fellow deviant and get comments and a chance to win points and other prizes!
I’m currently working on my Master’s thesis at the Royal School of Library and Information Science. My thesis is about the correlation between the types of keywords added to deviations and the types of search terms used when searching on deviantART. But, as you might have noticed, keywords cannot be seen by anyone but the owner of a deviation (not yet anyway, although dA is working on it). This is why I'm asking for your help.
What I need you
Game of ThronesHello dear deviants.
Do you have any recommendations for someone looking to read a good book? Personally I would recommend A Song of Ice and Fire (which has the added benefit of also being a brilliant TV-series), but that doesn't help me, since I've already finished reading it this summer.
Sooo, read anything good lately?
Feature - Musehorse Taking CommissionsHi, dear watchers.
Today I would like to share with you the art of the lovely deviant tinylaughs who is taking commissions in order to help cover her medical expenses. As you can see below she is a wonderful animal artist who makes very sweet works.
You can find her commission info here.
And you can donate an amount of your own choosing here to help with her medical expenses.
If you want to help, you can also do so by spreading the message about this.
ArtNouveau Super GroupI've been founder of artnouveau for almost four years and we are now a little over two thousand members (and a little over three thousand Watchers). It seems like a good time to take it to the next level.
So far we've hosted three very successful contests, but I would like to do more to make artnouveau even more engaging. That is why I aim to get a Super Group status for the group.
What I imagine we would do with a Super Group status:
Journal features and front page features to help gain exposure for dA's Art Nouveau artists."Featuring other artists work by a third party has always helped us less-known artists in promotion one's art. In my experience, without exposure it is close to impossible to become known in the art field and people who specialize in Art Nouveau even more so." -sycamoreleafArt Nouveau themed journal design to make updates more pleasant to the eyes (I'm working on making it at the moment).Challenges to inspire members of the group to create new and in

Keywords on deviantART: a guideThis guide is based on a project written for an 8th semester course in Knowledge Organising Systems and Processes at the Royal Danish School of Library and Information Science.
The project was based on image indexing literature and included an investigation of keywords from 107 deviations from deviantART. The results of this investigation was compared with previous studies of what types of keywords users add to their images and what types of keywords is used in image searches.
The guide begins with a very brief summery of the recommendations with examples. Afterwards follows a more thorough guide for those who are interested in the reasoning behind the recommendations and some of the results of our project.
Add keywords that describe:
What your deviation is.
e.g. photograph painting poem plushie necklace animation
What your deviation is of.
This includes both what your deviation is of in genera
June FeatureHello my fellow deviants. My exam paper has been handed in, and now I just got one verbal exam before my summer break begins. After the exam I'll share a bit about what we found out about keyword use on deviantART, and I'll try to make a small guide about adding keywords on deviantART and why it is important.
But in the meantime you can see some lovely deviations below made by a few of the wonderful deviants who shared their keywords.

“Some use Ink, I confide in Silver”
— Lauren E. Simonutti
Quote by Lauren E. Simonutti
“ The misfirings of my beloved/despised mind that conspire to convince me to destroy all have rendered me housebound and led to a solitary life. A creature of past, proof, memory and imaginary friends, I am aware enough to know the things I see and hear are not real, but that does not mean I do not still see and hear them.”
For a very long time
Marketing Materials For ArtistsEDIT: Well butter my biscuits, some of my gifs disappeared into the interwebs. I'll remedy this soon!
It’s no secret that us artists aren’t great at selling ourselves. The creative process is so much work it’s easy to assume that your work will be able to sell itself. Sometimes it can, but that’s not usually the case. Even if you aren’t interested in going commercial with your career (and there is absolutely nothing wrong with going that route), it is important have professional materials to present to clients, employers and galleries. If you aren’t interested in being “full time” with selling your artwork, I think it would still be good to consider putting together marketing materials as a means of creating good client relations.
This journal will include a number of things you may need in marketing yourself, but also if you are applying to art schools or for various jobs in art. I would also like to note that you d
Did you know? - Suggesting DDsDD is short for Daily Deviation and is - like the name lets you presume - a daily feature of artworks from different the galleries.
DDs can be featured by Community Volunteers and Staff members.
While browsing it can happen that you come across deviations that you think should be featured as a DD, but how?
First of all you need to take a look at the gallery it was submitted to.
You can find this information in the description area, directly below the artwork itself.
With that category in mind, we are now heading over to communityrelations to take a look at this CV overview. It lists all volunteers and the gallery they take care of.
Beside the overview at communityrelations you can also find the same list at :faq18:
For our example we now need to search for the Photography CVs.

Keep in Touch!
Lilyas has dedicated herself to making our community a brighter place with her vibrant artwork and infectious enthusiasm for interacting with others in our community. It has certainly paid off, as many deviants flock to her page on a daily basis to let her know how much of an inspiration she is. We absolutely agree, and couldn't let all that hard work go without recognition, so it's with great pride that we bestow the Deviousness Award for March 2014, to ... Read More
