It's my birthDAy!As of today, my account is 12 years old. My account is almost old enough to have an account here.
It's been an incredible twelve years, and I wanted to thank everyone who has made this journey so amazing. From my friends from Neopets (OMFG, Neopets? That was so long ago! ) who introduced me to this site, to my forum buddies to the volunteers and staffers who made the plethora of amazing things, leading up to this moment:
Thank you all. I cannot put into words just how much DeviantArt means to me and how much it has changed my life.
I can't wait to see what's next.
My DeviantArt StoryWow, 14 years is such a long time! And as of the 21st, I will have been part of the community for 12 of those years! DeviantArt has seen me through so much, and it's time for me to tell you all a story about it.
I first found DA when I was in college, writing fantasy short stories and looking for feedback for my (terrible) drawings to go with my words.
To say life was different back then is an understatement, I was in a school I hated, in a relationship I wasn't very happy in, and fighting my boyfriend in said relationship because he did not like my fascination with fantasy or my Internet addiction. It was in no small part because of DeviantArt that I found the courage to end a relationship with the person I thought would be "the one" and face post-college life on my own and made the trek from the frozen, dark lands known as Michigan during fall/winter, and headed back to Texas!
Those darn Vivillon.So... I blinked, and somehow, suddenly, I'm playing Pokemon again. Don't ask me how it happened, but it did. And I have, apparently, decided that I need to complete my Vivillon collection. Those darn Vivillon.
Anyone wanna trade? I'm currently seeking the following patterns:
Icy Snow Pattern Archipelago Pattern Sandstorm Pattern Monsoon Pattern Sun Pattern Ocean Pattern Jungle Pattern Poké Ball Pattern
DONE, thank you to everyone who helped!
Ready? Set? Catch 'em all!
OMG Comic-Con! (Video Update)San Diego Comic-Con was so amazing this year, I am exhausted but elated. I hardly even know where to start! Be ready, guys, this journal will be full of pictures and feels!
I got to see amazing old friends once again, which is one of my favorite parts of Comic-Con. So many artists who are not only stupid talented, but also terribly friendly and just too kind for words, who I only get to see once a year. Thanks to everyone in the Alley and at their own booths who take the time to chat! It totally makes my fangirl heart happy.
akreon and vesner flew all the way out for the convention, these girls are so amazingly fun, guys, I can't even explain it. They signed a Milk for the Ugly poster! The poster is so gorgeous, a lot of people who came by the DeviantArt booth thought it was a movie poster! We had a great time at the DevMeet.... don't worry, ladies. I won't post that picture we took
Comic-Con 2014, here we come!In case you didn't get the message: Don't Panic! Prep the TARDIS! Call the Banners! Comic-Con is (almost) here!
I'll be heading down to San Diego with a brand new, shiny costume to man the DeviantArt booth, meet and greet deviants, hang out with fellow fans and, this year... co-hosting a panel! aunjuli and I will be hosting a panel Sunday at 12:30, discussing fandom and all things ship! We hope you'll join us, if you're heading to Comic-Con.
If not, not to fear! We'll have lots of stories and updates. I'll also be updating live this year... I've joined Twitter! This is a new and horrifying thing for me, DeviantArt is the only social network I've ever been a part of. Please excuse me if I fail a little at Twitter etiquette. Give me a shout at @Kaydamphyr. While I'm stumbling through Twitter, I'm so excited to be able to share pictures, events and the whole Comic-Con experience in real time.
And now, I must scramble
Thank you All!Thanks everyone for all the birthday wishes! I had a lovely day and made some real progress on my little project. I wanted to give a shout-out and a thank you to kozispoon, who drew an adorable toon version of me, which is now the header on my main page. It is so friggin' cute and I adore it. It's nice to have a new graphic there, since my old one said $damphyr... and the $ is no longer in use on the site. Oops.
Not much more to update with just now. Labyrinth Ball is fast approaching, and I'm so excited to get my owl on again. I've added more feathers and more lights this year, hoping it'll be the most glamorous year so far!
I hope to have some exciting things to update you all with in the very near future, but for now, this is all I have. Be good to each other and have a great day!
THAT dayYep, it's that time again... at least it's my time again. Time to celebrate another trip around the sun. As of 3AM, in 7 short hours, I'm officially another year older. I can't say I'm doing a bit celebration this year, but my mother was in town for weeks--literal weeks--so I'm kind of socialed out. I plan to spend the day chilling at home with Cosmos, video games, my kitty, and working on a little something for Comic-con. It's gonna be a good day!
Hope the day sees you all well, if you're so inclined, please raise a glass to me on my b-day. I'll have a drink to you, in return.
Be good to each other!
Flight RisingHey all!
Just wanted to pimp a little project I've had my eye on for a while now... :iconflightrising: is open for registration, for today only! Head on over to http://flightrising.com/ and adopt yourself a dragon! My screen name there is also damphyr, so feel free to say hi, though I've literally just signed up and have not had the time to get to know the secrets of the site, so I won't be able to help you too much just yet. You can check out their dA group or just poke over to neondragon's page to see some previews of their dragons. So go on, check it out and show 'em a little dA love!
PE: Anime/Manga - Digital ArtGallery Month
Hello everyone! Welcome to the Anime & Manga half of this week!

Did You Know - Add MediaAdd Media
Add Media is a feature that allows you to quickly add deviations from Sta.sh or deviantART. It is available for various places, such as Sta.sh in general, when writing journals or when leaving comments (profile, deviations, forum...).
To get the Add Media interface for comment and description areas you simply click that Add Media textlink at the bottom of those sections.
(For descriptions on the submission page it looks similar,
but is without the "Add Drawing" link)
When you are using Sta.sh the Add Media interface will always show up whenever you edit a section where it is available. Same for when writing journals via the journal page.
The interface allows you to differ between Conversations (only available for comments), Sta.sh, deviantART and Emoticons.
The default tab changes depending on what feature you are currently using. For exa
