Cinemagrapher a group that has been made for all the cinema lovers that bring their stories into photography, cinemagraphs, film and animation, digital and traditional.
StaffAppreciation is the home to the planning committee for the 2012 deviantART Staff Appreciation Week. StaffAppreciation is currently in the planning stages for 2012 and will be announced over the next few weeks.
ManipulateThis is only for photomanipulators who love to create deviations through participating in challenges. Being one of the first groups with challenges, ManipulateThis is different because we believe that all members should learn as well as have fun creating the deviations. Group membership is open, but each potential member must already know the basics to photomanipulation. We accept novice, beginners, intermediate and advance photomanipulators. Hope to see you there.
AbstractArchitecture is a fresh group founded by Savaliste that gathers the best of abstract photography depicting architectural details. We launched a Design a Group Icon contest that is open to absolutely everyone (group member or not) and is a great chance for people to win Premium Memberships!
Critiqual-mass are are passionate about providing critique and detailed feedback. We focus on helping people improve their skills in their medium of choice, and we give advice to those seeking to become effective critique givers. We have a give-and-get system, so in order to have a submission accepted you must leave critiques on artworks in the gallery and link it to us as proof. So there's always a good chance of comments being left and it's fair for everybody involved. We are desperately looking for staff to help with the submission management too, and for helpers - people who are proficient in a genre or medium and are willing to help give members advice and mentor them.
Blood-and-Sinew are a macabre and horror anthro, creature and monster club. It's a niche genre that I feel needs to be exposed to the world more more. I know many artists of this genre who feel unseen and unwelcome in the general anthro/creature community. If you're onf of them this is the place for you!
Gamers-NESt is a group focusing on the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) and it just reached 100 members so I wanted to hold a contest with some special prizes to celebrate and any way it could get some more attention would be highly appreciated.
Pixels-Unlimited aims to collect quality pixel art but welcomes and supports beginners as well. Every two weeks a feature article is published and that pus an additional spotlight on exceptional works from the group gallery.
