EDIT: SPOTS HAVE FILLED UP. TRY AGAIN NEXT WEEK :D



Yes, you read that right

Thanks to the amazingly generous :icondevlant: I can now fully enjoy the perks of being a premium member!

So that means features! I've always wanted to do these, because there is a lot of art out there not getting the attention it deserves. I also want to do something back for all the amazing people that watch me and the people that I watch. So here's probably how I'm going to do it:

Starting next week I'll select 10 people and pick out two of their works to be featured in my journal. The works will stay there for a week after which the next 10 will be featured. Five will be selected from the people I watch. I'll skip the really popular/well-known ones because they get enough exposure as it is. The other five are (the first) five  people who comment on this journal and ask me to have their art featured. Please let me know which two you would like to have featured.

I'm sorry I'm doing this on a 'first come, first serve' basis, but I have little choice if I want this seem fair. If I'm watching you already you don't need to be ask me for a feature because chances are you will at some point be anyway. If I don't get enough request I'll feature random things from my favourites/watchlist.

That's starting next week though. This week will be some underappreciated masterpieces:

Enjoy!

P.S.: I'll posting polls too. If you're not interested, feel free to just ignore 'em. I'll probably be spamming them.

Congratulations on the subscription!

Would it be too much to ask for a feature?

Thank you!

And of course not! You just filled up the last spot :) Do you have any preferences concerning which artworks you would like to see featured? Otherwise I just make my own pick :D

Wow, these are beautiful works, I have to take a closer look at these artist galleries now, thier stuff is amazing. :D
If there's still room, you can feature me. My gallery's a little small, but you can take your pick. I don't have any preferences as to what you show, though I'm happier with my traditional works more so than the digital. :)

Yay thanks! Would you believe most of these only had about 8 favs? The last guy I featured had a little more, 100 max I think, but it's still crazy! Glad you liked them :)

Yay! Hurray for getting subscription! It never fails to amuse me how generous a lot of deviants are. It's part of the reason why I love dA. Everyone (well except those that are not) are so friendly to eachother. And you really deserved his premium membership.
It's very kind of you to do a feature in your journal. I sometimes skip through your favourites, so I know you'll be able to pick some very beautiful artworks for your features.

Congrats again. :glomp:

I know right? I was just flabbergasted at first. Such a nice gesture!

Always some rotten apples in the basket, that's unavoidable. But those I just ignore. And aw, I didn't do much to deserve it, but I'm definitely painting him something in return as thanks.

Oh my God, I thought I was the only who did that, going through other people's faves! It's like a treasure trove of things you might have never found by yourself :'D

Thanks! :hug: :heart:

Yeah, it really is a nice gesture. :3

Indeed. It's such a nice community.
Well, your a great artist and a great person, so why not? :'D

Indeed! Specially when you do it with people who share some common interest with you. Their favourites are a massive treasure hunt. x3

You're welcome~

I know! And now he gave me a year's sub because I told him I'd be painting him something in return. Isn't that just ridiculously nice? And I haven't even finished it yet. I do feel like life's somehow tricked me into doing my first commission XD

Awwwww :hug: Well if that's how it worked a lot more people deserve 'em! But I'm super grateful nontheless.

So my secret hobby is suddenly not so secret and not so special haha.

Ahw, that is indeed ridiculously nice. <3 Haha, in a way it is a commission, isn't it? But at the same time, it's not.

I think there are quite some people on dA who deserve a sub-gift now and then, but you're deffinitally one of them.

Ah, baw... Well on dA, your hobby doesn't stay secret for very long. :B

Also, I was wondering if you're planning on getting yourself a journal skin sometimes? : > I think some of your ( more or less monotone background) works would make great journal skins. But maybe that's just me. x3;;;

A journal skin! You know, I'd completely forgotten about that feature. I'm no coding wizard so I suppose I'll have to look at a few tutorials here on deviantART. Looks complicated haha. Which particular background did you have in mind? Just out of curiosity since I have no idea how I want it to look yet.

It's one of the joys of being a subscriber. : > I'm not wizard either, so it takes me quite some time finally get the coding right, but once I understand what I'm doing, it's not that hard to write new div classes. Some tutorials on dA are quite good, and some are just hard. XD Best thing that I can advise you is making a dummy layout first in PS, or any other program you have, in which you really add everything, including font layout/colour/text lining etc. It's much easier to turn the dummy into HTML than making a html coding from thin air. As I said, I'm not a wizard, but if you have any troubles, I'll be glad to help you figure it out. :3

I was thinking perhaps one of your works like Seiryuu (or the lion you have as your avatar). It has a dark background, so it won't be too hard to make the several parts fit together, and I like the colour combination (that's of course my own opinion, I prefer light text on a dark bg. :B). The blue hues here and there would be nice to put some colours here and there to break the monotone black...

Yes I found a few helpful tutorials! I will get around to (have you noticed I say this a lot? XD *sigh* procrastination...) studying them a little more closely and see what I can make of them. And thanks for the advice! I'll pester you some more if something comes up I don't understand! ;)

Ah I see. Sounds good. I don't want to have a distracting background and I am also fond of light text on dark BG. I'll make something specifically for the CSS maybe. Backgrounds like that aren't too difficult to paint :)
