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 partic
Share keywords, get comments and win pointsEDIT April 16th: 123 deviants have shared keywords so far, but I still need more. Prizes have been expanded, and will be expanded again when 130 have shared keywords. Please consider helping if you can, either by sharing your keywords (if you haven't already) or by sharing the message. The deadline for the keyword collection is April 20th, and 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
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
Fairy Tale contest winnersartnouveau's third contest has been concluded and the winners have been found. Yet again we had lots of fantastic entries, but by popular vote the first, second and third place winners have been decided. They are the artists who made the following lovely pieces:
Congratulations to all three.

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.
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.
Hints and Tips #1Hello and welcome to the first instalments of 'Hints & Tips' and
I hope these short and simple Tutorials will help boost and
inspire YOU to learn and create your own works in the many
forms and mediums that you may work in.
SO... The first Hint/Tip is -
FIXING WARPED FINISHED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
(lumpy or uneven surface)
1- The warped painting
2 - Turn the painting around and cover the back
with plenty of water from corner to corner
3- Place in a large hardback book between blank pages
4- Close the book and place something heavy on it and wait
30 to 50 minutes so that the pages absorb the moisture
5- You open the book and the painting is flat
=to show that it doesn't remove paint, here is the finished piece=
I hope this helps
