she struggles from the hardwood like a creamy stallion
drowning in a raging surf. her limbs
the appendages of a white crab spider sprawl bent,
slender supple bones. her eyes
caked on fingernails caked on like dried blood caked
onto her fleshy thighs. her eyes
are wooden chambers locked stone hollow, key swallowed,
dwindling human. Although
her fingertips are faultless pearls, beet hair stiffened curls,
vision whirls, she's still a girl. the atmosphere
folds in like an origami crane collapsing slowly, sharp
corners slicing mostly. Pelvis bony, snowy
shivers, scintillating silver rivers (stream) dampen her tinder.

Project Educate: An Interview With Anoya
Project Educate: An Interview With Anoya
Anoya is a former Community Volunteer for the Animals, Plants and Nature Gallery. Photography is her main focus when it comes to art but she also loves to crochet! amigurumi.

1)  If you could bring one deceased legendary artist back to the current time, who would it be and why?
Probably Ansel Adams. I love his work and I would love to see even more.

2) Who or what inspired you to take on the art form that you focus in?  
Good question! There's no specific happening or person that really inspired me. I grew up with photography. I remember my parents and grandparents always took their camera everywhere and I was always looking at their photo albums. Pictures are always a big important part of the house, everywhere in my family. I'm the o

Comment Counts Under Thumbs (Beta Testers Only)
We just released a new feature to Beta Testers that adds more context to the experience of viewing artwork on deviantART.  You'll now find comment counts underneath the thumbnails of deviations -- they can be seen when browsing or searching art, and also display in your Message Center.  We hope this feature will help bring to light the fact that there is a whole world of activity that takes place behind thumbnails.  In some cases, when a thumbnail displays many comments, it can be a trigger to join the discussion.  Whi

Community Projects - Update
Hi! I'm Hunter, your "new" Community Projects volunteer! I hope our time together will be awesome and productive, and to further this goal I've prepared this... um... brief update to let you all know of some changes coming to the Community Projects gallery, and how we're going to continue in 2012! So here we go! 
Changes to Community Projects
So this year we're going to do things a bit differently. My primary goal as Community Projects CV is to support you, the community. Community Projects doesn't exist solely to run our own projects, we're primarily here to help you out with yours. If you want to run a Project, read this article, as it will explain things in greater detail, and then send a note to haldron
If you know of an awesome project, and you think we should know about it too, link it here! 
Category Changes/Additions
In the past, we added a lot of categories to Community Projects each year, which ended up cre

January's Solution Sanctuary: Results (Part III)
On January 1st, I challenged everyone in the deviantART community to suggest a lot of Daily Deviations. I did this for two main reasons: A) `thorns told people to put up or shut up and I decided to listen; B) I was tired of hearing people complain about supposed favoritism surrounding whose DD suggestions are accepted by the CVs.
Well, you all rose to the challenge beautifully. Over 200 suggestions were sent into the CVs by the people that participated in my little challenge. The first featured work pieces that received DDs, the second featured one half of the rest of the suggestions and this

Lets Get Exquisite: Stage 2!

Tue Apr 25, 2017, 9:47 AM

Wow, many participants!

Thank you to all your wonderful people who have signed up to the gym of literature! The signups are now closed and we are officially underway for the corpse!

Because we have so many wonderful people, I have split you into 3 teams. 

Bulk1 by BeccaJS

I'm a participant! What happens next?

Read this carefully and ask questions if you are confused!

The first line has been sent to the second person on the list. The power is now in their hands to allow the poem to travel between all participants using the deviantART note system. Please only use notes- do not post this elsewhere or you spoil the game!

When it is your turn, you will receive a note from the previous participant and you will see only their line of the poem. (senders, make sure you start a new note, do not forward the note you received on! This stops any potential chain and extra lines being seen!). You will then send your line to the next participant.

PLEASE Title the note with your team name, as this helps me a lot!

When you send your note on, please ensure you also send your note to BeccaJS (that's me!). I will be collecting all the lines together to arrange the complete poem, which I will post at the endl. I will also use this as confirmation you have registered your line and the chain continues. If I am not copied in, I will believe you are no longer playing and move on to the next person.

(Nb. after 48 hours, I will send you a nudge, and if no reply after a further 24 hours, you will be moved on).

Besides the technical, relax and have fun! We have no idea how the poem will turn out in the end, but it will be something we've never seen before! 

Bulk2 by BeccaJS

Participant order

This is the important bit! See who you are expecting a note from, see you you are sending yours too. Remember to copy me in and all will be grand!
