It has been 7 years to the day that I have joined this amazing community! So much has happened in that time that it just baffles my mind. I've technically been here for 9 but never knew I could make a free account until 2 years had past of me stealing amazing desktop wallpapers while bored at work. This place has become my second home. I can't thank you all enough for making this place so warm and inviting. Even with the dArama from time to time I wouldn't trade my friends and experiences on this site for anything in the world. Watching this community grow from the outside looking in and seeing where it is headed with all the new innovations coming from the inside looking out is simply breath taking. I just want you all to know how proud I am to call my self a deviant
To help celebrate this amazing day I'm going to be hosting a mini contest! Do you think you're up for the challenge?
To help commemorate what brought me here in the first place this contest will be based around desktop wallpapers.
I burn through desktops pretty fast! Every time I see a new one I just cant resist wearing it for a few days. I think I go through more wallpapers than I do underwear!
I have been using:
For a couple of weeks or so now and love it! It's clean, minimal and has the perfect nod to the site we all know and love. That being said I can always use more dA related desktops!
Your task is to make me a new deviantART inspired wallpaper. Here's some simple guides to follow should you choose to enter:
- I'm a minimalist at heart so it can have some pizazz but it shouldn't be over done.
- If you're using Fella in your design please use the newer updated versions of him that `thekidKaos has created. You can find them in his gallery. You may also try your hand and creating him yourself so long as it fits with the recent branding.
- My monitor is 1920 x 1200 pixels so it should be no smaller than that. (extra points if you make an iPhone/iPod touch version ;))
- It should be deviantART related. That being said, you can push this to the limit. My avatar is a pikachu and that's on dA so it still counts if you use the dA colour scheme or something like that ;)
- HAVE FUN!
Once you have made your desktop you can upload it to your gallery and shoot me a note with a link or thumb. Please label the note "bdAy desktop" or something similar so I know what it is. I get a lot of notes recently and I would hate for it to be lost in the confusion. Once received I will add the deviation to the features section below. A winner will be announced friday the first of October.
There will be only one winner so lets make it count! That winner will receive;
- A devWEAR t-shirt or accessory of their choosing (depending on availability)
- 1000 points
- And will be the first to take part in a new secret art commission project I am working on that will be released on Oct 1st!
Any questions? Feel free to drop me a line or comment below!
I understand that there are a few of you who don't think of yourselves as that type of creative. You don't think you'll be able to make a desktop. I'm sure you've all got monitors and you like to dress them up every once in a while. So... The first 100 deviants to comment on this journal with a link to a desktop wallpaper they found and love on deviantART will be awarded 7 points
I will also be making periodic stops on dAmn to give away points so be sure check in every once in a while!
