So what are you waiting for? Get posting!
Group Officially Reopened!Hello all
The group is officially reopened, with a few changes! Members can now submit to the gallery, at five deviations per week. This is subject to change and you will be notified with a journal blog if it does
Since members are now allowed to submit to the gallery, I would ask you to revisit our submission rules which can be found here. Deviations that do not follow those rules will be declined. All the artwork you have submitted into our favorites folders are still there, and can be found in either the featured folder, or folder A.
We hope to bring back some weekly/monthly activities and blogs back soon, so stay tuned!
Puppy LoveYes, I realize most of these are not puppies, but shh. Have a little bit of puppy love

Mention someone below with a must see gallery (including your own if you wish ) I will look through every single thing you post, I promise! No direct links necessary, just their name or icon will do (ie: rainylake or :iconrainylake: )
I am a fan of animal artists, crochet and other artisan arts, digital work, traditional, everything really. Not being picky at this point Please throw in some literature as well, I am in the mood to read.
Summoning the following deviants to help me out here, if they have the time

Project Feature: A Journal Feature Contest!Deadline extended due to a few people asking about it. Deadline is now March 15th
It's contest time
I love creating/looking through features and discovering new artwork, so I decided to see what all of you can come up with!
The objective of this contest is for you to create a journal feature with a specific theme.
Theme: pick it yourself and write a short explanation as to why you chose it.
Journal feature must be new!
Feature the artwork of other artists.
You may submit up to 3 different journal features (please note you can only win once )
Be sure to include in the description of your journal that it's for this contest, and link back here (ie: Created for rainylake's Project Feature Contest (link) )
Remember: Quality not Quantity. I would rather see a journal feature with 10 carefully selected works then one with 50
Show me the beautiful things..I finally just got through 15,000 plus messages and deviations tonight, so I feel rather accomplished. On the other hand, it reminds me that not too long ago, I deleted about 20,000 without even looking through them.
I miss being here and seeing all the beautiful things. Perhaps you can help me? Show me some of your artwork, some of your recent favorites, any cool news articles, or features that you may have seen or created yourself. Comment below with them, and I will love you to pieces. Anything at all will brighten my day, so please, spam me .
Tell your friends to comment too, the more, the merrier. I'll be throwing out comments, faves, watches etc, so it might be worth the time Or if you are bored, just talk to me. Hate to say it, but I've been feeling rather lonely the past few nights. I could use another night owl to speak too.
In other news, I do plan to start a contest very soon, even though I'm on a semi hiatus. Can't stay away for too long aranoid
Happy Valentines Day!Happy Valentines Day everyone

Doctors AgainSo like clockwork, and a trip to the ER later, it's been told to me that my lung issues from six months ago have come back full force. Why does it always take six months to come back? Or rather, why does it never fully go away? It's exhausting to have to deal with this all the time. They put me back on a bunch of medicine and hopefully it won't take months like it did last time to go away.
I know I'm already on a semi hiatus, but I guess this is just a heads up for those of you who are still around. It may take awhile for me to respond to messages. If you have something important to tell me, please note me. I'll always look at those first.
I miss being really active here and I miss you all so much. Here's hoping for a speedy return.

What I will draw
I'm pretty much game to draw anything. I can't guarantee a style, it's going to be whatever I feel like for the day! It's not going to be anything fancy or crazy, just a sketch. You can see more example on my gallery
Here are some examples of sketches:
IdolizationIdolization is a strange and dangerous thing.
Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.
That it will inspire you in some way. And that you'll be able to do the same.
Unconsciously, we all build images of our idol.
It's human nature, I guess. We fill in all the blanks. The things that we don't know from this person.
Because an idol isn't a person anymore at that point. It has become an ico

PE: Sketches and sketchbooksSketches and sketchbooks
Big, marvellous, elaborate, finished paintings and drawings you can see in various stunning galleries on dA and outside dA, while they require time and can occupy artist's workspace even for months, in a lot of cases make a small percentage of created pictures lying around the creator's desk. Sketches aren't just noted concepts or a stage in preparing an artwork - a couple of sketches a day can be the most influential source of improving your skills.
You have probably been through this more than once - far from your room, you got struck with a brilliant idea. In diffrent circumstances you'd most likely rush to transfer it onto paper or canvas, but well, that might be not so easy in a classroom or on a bus. It can be difficult even if you're home - how about more than one idea at once? Using a sketchbook as a notepad for any concepts is by far
