Looks like Deviantart found out about the free publicity on Comedy Central.
deviantART was on TV + join the art challenge!A long time ago (about 24 hours), in a galaxy far, far away (down the road in Hollywood), comedian and television host Chris Hardwick introduced a segment on his late-night Comedy Central show — aptly titled @midnight (get it?) — that got many of us at deviantART all aflutter.
First of all, if you love the Internets and you haven't seen @midnight yet, you're missing out on some serious lulz. A few nights a week, Hardwick invites some comedian pals on the show for some Geek-Centric Improv Comedy. Sort of like a British Quiz Show brought to you by Reddit. Or "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" with slightly less dancing, but an equal amount of thick-rimmed glasses and awkward sexual tension.
In a segment called "Star Weird" on Monday's episode, Hardwick's guests had to choose which of two artistic descriptions was an actual deviation on deviantART. YES, MOM, HE SAID DEVIANTART'S ACTUAL NAME ON TV! MUCH WOW! The comed

What is the best (and worst) April Fools day joke that can happen to an artist?

Seeing your art on tv being looked at by Chris Hardwick and Seth Green and it happening on April 1st so anyone you tell will think it is a joke!

It happened to me and even I didn't believe it until I saw it myself.

Last night one of my watchers started asking me about how it felt to have my art on Comedy Central.

Naturally I thought it was a joke... until a few more people started mentioning they saw it on tv too.

I still didn't believe it, but now I was curious what show it was on.

It was literally the March 31st show of At Midnight (airing after midnight so literally on April 1st) hosted by Chris Hardwick and one of the guests was Seth Green.  Naturally the episode had a Robot Chicken/Star Wars theme to it.

I usually watch this show after Daily Show/Colbert but tonight I decided not to.  I wound up catching it when it repeated at 2 am.

9 minutes in I saw the category and the question which my image was the answer. (Screencaps courtesy of :iconlimeykat: )

Even though the Nudist Beach recruitment is over, I've got one last thing to share.

Hi there ^^

Sorry to bother you, I just wanted to ask if you have a problem with me coloring some of your drawings. Is just that I really love them and it would be amazing to work on them

I'm not as good as you, I'm still learning ^^;

If it's ok, please say so, and if not... say so just to be sure ^^;

Sorry to bother you, keep on going :hug:

He doesn't mind if people color his work, but he does mind if they're commissions and the buyers have not been asked as well.
