Hello to all!
I'm seeing great commotion around the last news, the ability to change our username.
Site Update: Username Changes, Journal WidgetIn our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.
Username Changes Now Available
DeviantART has been around for almost twelve years, and in that time, we've seen artists grow from hobbyists to students to professionals. As a member of any community, your identity can change and grow over time.
For years, we've been getting requests from the community asking for the ability to change usernames. We realize that as an artist, it's important to give yo
I'm staying *Egil21
and have no intent to change it, but I do understand that many people don't think much about it when they join and the fact is, after some years on dA, growing, maturing, improving their art, that name doesn't make sense any more, specially when you are called ~NarutoLoverForever and trying to sell street photography (this is just an example, it's not real, though I checked and there is an account with this name
As this ability is only available to Premium Members, I'm going to give 10 Premium Memberships (1month subs) to dA members who are not subscribed. Of course, I'm only giving to the ones who are my watchers or #TheFavouriteShowcase
Also, as I'm reaching the 100.000 Pageviews, I'll give 1 month sub or the correspondent points to the deviants who catch the 99.999, 100.000 and 100.001 paveviews. I don't like the so called kiribans very much and really don't give much attention to the pageviews but this is a nice occasion and likely I'm going to lose it, so keeping a screen print would be nice. SO, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO WIN A ONE MONTH SUB?
If you are my watcher or a member of #TheFavouriteShowcase
Fave this journal and comment on why you want to change your username and let me know which will be your new name; (this will be a draw and I'll be using the number on the Faves List to find the winners on the 25th May). For all deviants, including the ones participating on the draw:
Try to catch my page views: the lucky numbers are the 99.999, 100.000 and 100.001! Send me a screen print by note.
You didn't catch those numbers but you were close? Send me the screen print anyway, you may get lucky if no one caught the lucky numbers...

The PRIMAL COLOURS of RENEWAL - delayed:icontransparentplz:
Hello to all members of #TheFavouriteShowcase
Unfortunately, due to some issues I have to deal, I'm not able to count the votes and reveal who are the winners on the 1st July. I'm really sorry, I don't like to leave without finish a chore. And I'm not sure when I can continue the counting...I'll do my best to let you know the results as soon as possible, not in this weekend as promised, but in the next one.
I beg you to understand and besides the other prizes, to compensate the ones who have already voted for all categories without having to, I have a surprise with one more prize.
Thank you for all your support
We are celebrating two years, we are renewing our Super Group status, it's the renewal season, after a cold, damp, grey Winter (I know, not in the South Hemisphere - but you continue to have good weather there so you will be with the right mood to participate too).
Are you a traditional artist?
Do you take commissions?
Do you like to draw/paint portraits?

Take a look. You may join until the 30th October.
Traditional Artists Contest *more or less closed?EDIT:
Hello Traditional Artists
Today was the last day of my commission contest. I'm very thankful to all who have participated for their kindness and good will. I have chosen 3 works to buy as it was my primal intention and soon I'll be contacting the authors so we can agree on the terms of purchase.
I was contacted to extend the contest period, but as you can easily understand, this is not a regular contest: I think that any of you, traditional artists reading this, who have the will to produce a piece accordingly the rules below can contact me any time to show me a WIP or a finished work. If I like the piece, I'll buy it
Also below (scroll down to the end of the article) you can find my favourite works, wonderful pieces, just like I was looking for.
For now I'll remove the references I don't want any more but I'll keep the others available until the end of January 2013, so you are welcome to use them as I'm still commissioning you!
Thank you to all
