Are highly intelligent or very talented people better able to hide their misery from loved ones, thus making it all the harder to “read” them and help them?

Take a look at some magnificent works of people who are able to align eye, head and feelings, observing the world rather than only seeing it. Enjoy and support them!

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: AtomicLEGO

Woods by AtomicLEGO selected by Anoya 
"Overall cuteness! I really like the style! "

Desolation by AtomicLEGO  selected by 3wyl
"The atmosphere is conveyed so effectively here! Brilliant use of shading."

Watching the Sunset. by AtomicLEGO  selected by kingmancheng 
"I like an illustration with a message, very powerful piece!"

Skyrim Logic by AtomicLEGO  selected by KovoWolf 
"Because who doesn't love some skyrim humor? Lovely panels and a great comedic relief to an otherwise unusual mechanic of the game!"

Night Elf (Ballpoint Sketch) by AtomicLEGO selected by DistortedSmile 
"How do you achieve that level of detail and texture with a ballpoint pen?? Amazing!"

Theme of the Month: Beaches!

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

It's October and the sacred 31 days of Halloween are upon us-time to get your gore on! The chill is in the air, the leaves are on the ground, and Halloween candy has been out since Labor Day. So while you’re waiting in the Starbucks line for an overpriced double pumpkin spice whatever, pass the time with this year’s scary movies reviews!

30 Days of Night (2007)

Review by Gypsycurse71

Overall Grade: A

Vampire tribe descends to feast on Alaskan town where the sun doesn't rise for 30 days. Gore abounds but what I liked most was the writers rescued vampirism from modern explanations of genetic defect and viruses and returned it to its feral roots. This clan is all menace, all the time—no opera capes, no romance, and nobody sparkles. The only thing I fault these vampires for is not getting Sarah Palin while they were out there.

Steve Niles's Comments About The Project

”30 Days didn't come out of a love of vampires. I had burned out on how accepted they had become. When (Ben) Templesmith and I created these vampires we agreed they had to be land sharks, merciless monsters that didn't give a shit about you except for what flowed in your veins.”

Steve Niles

”I love monsters. They are the ultimate outsider.”

Steve Niles
