Want to take part in events on deviantART? Well one of the ways you can take part is via Community Projects. They are ran either by deviants, volunteers or staff and are open to everyone.
You could learn a new skill, develop one you already have or take part in something which could lead to meeting new people and getting yourself more exposure.
Here are an example of two community projects which are happening at the moment which you might be interested in:
1000 DEVIANTS, 1000 CRANES
"A thousand cranes, or senzaburu, are often made by paperfolders and according to Japanese legend, a wish is granted to all those who complete such a task. This time, we are asking YOU to fold one crane each and all your contributions will be compiled into a huge work, ready to gift Fella with a wish for his next birthday."
Check out more about this project by reading this article. There are even links on how to create a paper crane if you don't know how! Be part of the 1,000 and check it out!
The Vector Colouring Book!
"The project's aim is to help the vector community gain exposure and spread the knowledge of what vector art is to the rest of deviantART. It is also a fun, light hearted project to reconnect with the joys of colouring in and embrace traditional methods."
Check out more about this project by reading this article. It's a two stage project, so even if you don't know how to vector, you can take part in the second stage in a months time which involves colouring in!
