FINDING HAPPINESS ON DEVIANTART
If you want to get something out of it, put something into it. Visibility on deviantART is mostly a numbers game; there are so many users that unless you're interacting with others, even the highest-quality work may go nearly unseen. This advice sounds like a truism, but people seem to have difficulty understanding that no, their work is not some kind of miracle that breaks all the rules. Don't expect the community to fawn all over you for existing. You have to make them see you.
Don't expect the community to fawn over you, period. These people are usually your peers, but even if you don't think they are - they are not your buttmonkeys. Don't treat people that way.
The people who let you treat them terribly are not the ones you want. Some people will allow, and even encourage you to treat them like slaves. The

Happy birthday fella by zakarranda is a fun piece of animation with brilliant detail and impressive looping.
You cant help but love the expression on the blue emotes face in Driving school by Kath602. The car is nicely pixelled and Im sure its an emote many drivers can relate to.
I really love the range of colours in dragon rider by xxghost250xx. The whole scene has been wonderfully pixelled and its managed to capture a great sense of life in a single scene.

An insight into Muro...Or why I love new techAn insight into Muro by dxd
Before I start let me make a disclaimer, I am going to talk about stuff here that is possible with HTML5 and CSS3, not things that will happen with Muro or the site in general. I do not know what is in the development stage with deviantART, this is just an article about the strength of 2 web technologies and how deviantART is pushing the web forward.
Now, in the last 24 hours I've seen a lot of people compare Muro to programs like Adobe Photoshop or The Gimp as well as web applications like iSketch. I'd like to start by explaining why Muro is so different.
Why use Muro when I already have Adobe Photoshop or The Gimp?
Yes, photoshop is hugely more powerful than muro, it has a lot more functions, you can use it for so much more, I am aware of this, I use Adobe Photoshop myself.
