Once again, the Community Relations team is here to feature the artworks of deviantART's beloved forumers! :la:

Once a month, we select one active member from the forums and we feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.

As we're kind (and awesome), we also decided to give an opportunity for everybody to get featured! Every month, we create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a particular theme. This thread is made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs of your artwork that match the theme and, at the end of the month, we select our favorite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article. :)

The best thing is that being an active member of the forums is the only requirement!

Featured Forumer of the Month: saxeh.

Theme of the Month: Supernatural!

Here's a selection of thumbs picked from the thumbshare thread: Supernatural!

Unwilling Little Vampire    A cold wind tugged at my long, black hair. The full moon above me made a spotlight through the dense trees. I sighed. The sound of my footsteps on gravel was the only noise to be heard, besides a coyote in the distance. My breath clouded before me, and I shoved my gloved hands further into my pockets.
    Tonight was the same as any other night- for all the humans, that is. I was human, once. I think. Yes, I'm quite sure I must have been, about two and a half centuries ago. Yes- I was the eldest child and only daughter of a very wealthy family in Boston. Back then I was known as Mary Tailor, of the esteemed Tailor family. Now I'm known as Jenevive Marx, a quiet, detached teenager with dark clothing and snowy skin.
    I believe it was my brother, Mark (from whom I derived my assumed surname), that brought me out there that night. A bash to mark the century, he called it. I was so sarcastic and rude toward him, telling him he was stupid and that our ind
German Jackalope
People from Bavaria can report on many animals
In the natural fauna muddle.
However, nobody here has thought of
One splendid specimen of an animal.
Very peculiar is its shape
And it lives mostly in the dark forest
And also in high mountain regions
It has been seen by some people.
The appearance of it is enormous
In various shapes:
A rabbit head crowned with chamois antlers
And feet from the duck it has as well.
There exists very big and small ones, too
With diverse bodies and legs,
But mainly the head
Will only please to some after a shock.
When you see one, mostly in dark night
With sparling eyes and in full magnificence,
Please always make sure that a Wolpertinger
Can only live happily in the future when left in peace.
Every Wolpertinger is also a bringer of luck.
Bavaria is so famous because
There is the place where
Wolpertingers exist.
World of Vel part 1


In the world of VEL


THAT ONE DAY I was walking with my brother, Jin… It started very much like any other day in the tiny wooded village of Verseltra. Each morning began with myself darting from the confines of my home to the shady lands outside, greeted by the familiar trees and walls that kept our village safe. So, if it was such an average day, why begin the story of my travels here? 
Simply put, it’s due in part to the fact that I imagine all the great travelers and heroes of Vel have a day such as this one. A day, where, at the end of their adventures, as they are peacefully soaking in the candle light, surrounded by their trophies and blades and treasures, they could trace it all back to that one moment in time.
EvidenceParanormal disturbance is around,
on the television and under the floors.
Who are you going to call to help you?
And will anyone believe your true stories?
Record all the sightings,
to provide evidence.
that they're alive.
A programme of horror,
within this residence.
that the ghosts are walking, talking.
Give it to me.
The black night is an attraction to them,
contained with frozen souls and fiery rage.
Who will you turn to for some help now?
Do you trust anyone to believe what you got to say?
Watch them carefully through the solid walls,
and hear their unspoken communication.
You doubt anyone will believe your cries.
Why not just fall on your knees for my help, huh?
Record all the sightings,
to provide evidence.
that they're alive.
A programme of horror,
within this residence.
that the ghosts are walking, talking.
Give it to me.
Evidence... (x4)
Give it to me~~
that they're alive.
give it to me.

Princess Celestia Pattern - done (pic warning)

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 30, 2014, 11:55 PM
No critiquing this time guys, she's all done! :iconspikederpplz:

Finished her pattern today. This is version 2 (you can see vo1 in the bg). Was allot easier making this pattern with Luna's to base it off. 

SO happy I took the time to make her her own pattern. (I can also use it to make Nightmare Moon, Nightmare Rarity etc :D)

Can't wait to start on the final version now. (also gunna try out some 3d lashes for her)

(note: ears are just placeholders, not the final 3d/good looking ears)

This CANNOT go unnoticed. 

Great job :iconjoeadok:, I'd love to see an episode of the Super Detective Team in action. Imagine the blend of mystery, comedy, and action you can get out of it. Japanese voices with English sub please!
