The Journal Feature ChallengeI love featuring art in my journal on a regular basis. There is so much great art around here that I find fascinating and I wish more people could see it. It's a great way to discover new artists and find inspiration. You can always browse and search for art on your own, but in my experience, is a lot more effective to search through collections curated by artists with interests similar to yours, as in their favourites or features in their journals. Besides, is also a great way to show your appreciation for artists you admire! And usually artists do appreciate the promotion when you let them know.The Journal Feature Challenge by Thiefoworld
Some Tips to create effective journal features
Thumbnails nowadays can be used by both premium and non premium members in journals. The code for these is always easily accesible on every deviation page, at the right, just above the deviation' statistics. It looks like this: :thumb#######:
Also, today thanks to
Home Life Art Jam!Update: There are only 20 days left to participate in the art jam!Home Life Art Jam! by fantasy-xchange
It's our very first art jam!
To kick off our first art jam, let's go somewhere very familiar to your characters - their homes. Show us where your characters live! Do they live in houses? Do they live outside? Are their rooms messy or immaculately clean? Try to get into your characters' heads and show us what their normal day-to-day life is like (when they aren't out killing dragons, of course ).
-The art jam will last until the end of summer (Sept. 22nd). If you turn in a valid piece of artwork before Sept. 22nd, you'll earn extra credit point(s) in the exchange. The extra credit points can be used to get you off of the blacklist or as a replacement for the "late fee" artwork if you ever need it.
-You can make as many pictures as you'd like for this art jam, but you can only earn a maximum of 5 extra credit points from this jam.
-Please let me know if you're interested in participating in the art
|Every deviation I find inspiring, useful or extremely funny am I putting in my Favorites. I am pretty picky when it comes to Favorites, I add only the work that truly inspires me. And don't forget my stamp collection|
I'm shy. That means I don't say (read: comment) much when I don't have something to say, and I won't spam your inbox with lots of journals. Yes, I'm always very busy with school and stuff, so there won't be any art floods either. You can safely watch me, you won't drown in my art!
