Fri Jul 25, 2014, 9:44 PM
Project Reveal is a new art feature series, in which I will reveal one artist per issue to share with the community. Each artist revealed has been selected for their art or for their amazing community spirit. :heart: by dxd


Let me now reveal to you arisuonpaa or Ari Suonpää!

Viking Portrait by arisuonpaa

Ari has been a member of our beloved DeviantArt for seven years. His gallery is a beautiful collection of both traditional and digital paintings largely influenced by his Finnish roots. Also, for those desiring to learn more about painting... Ari has some fantastic tutorials in his gallery that are free for everyone! 

Here are some of my favourite pieces from Ari's gallery:

Do you have someone in mind that you would like to see featured through Project Reveal?
If so, comment below or send a note to diphylla.

Yesterday I was browsing DA when I found something unique, creative and extremely well done! I felt the need to make a feature to share with people that don't know this series yet.
This will revolutionize the Disney world forever!

(Sorry for disable comments guys, if you liked, please, comment on the artist profile/artworks! Thank you!)

The artist:

The series:

Grumpy Disney

Classic Disney animated films. Now with Grumpy Cat!
This series features well known Disney films with the Internet's most famous grouchy feline in place of one of the characters.
The concept is simple: the appearance of the cat must derail the plot of the film.

Create your birthday deviation and submit it to the deviantART-Related/Birthday/14th Gallery and sub-cat!

Found these Literature Pieces Celebrating :devart:'s Fella Birthday --free-- avatar  in the Folder:

The Porcelain FellaI was brushing away a grape-themed wind chime when I saw the porcelain cat. A gray Persian puffball with owlish eyes, I knew right away that it was the perfect gift for my one true love. 499 Pesos, said the tag around its neck. Grinning, I reached for the yellow 500 in my pocket. It had to be fate. I could already see my goddess fiddling with her ponytail and blushing furiously as I bestowed my humble offering. I hoped that we could ride on the same bus afterward, but I didn’t want to jinx it.
The rain started pouring again when I left the novelty shop. I shielded the porcelain cat inside my slicker all the way home.
Turned out the cat looked smashing next to my blue star lamp. Did I really have to give it away? Wasn’t there anything else I could do to convey my undying affections? Why not write her a love letter? Of course! I sat up and grabbed a pad of purple-lined paper from my school bag. Think—what words would win her over without fail? As I wrote, I read alo
TestamentWith the mourners gone, the house was finally quiet again. My sister made tea for us while I examined the details of mother's will. We weren't glad she was gone, not by any stretch of the imagination, but we were the kind of family that dotted our i's and crossed our t's. Mother would have wanted it to be this way, so we put aside our grief and focused on the facts.
And the biggest fact of all was that despite everything we knew about mother, and through all the years she claimed to have no secrets; there was, apparently, one very large one being carried around within her. Her last will and testament, contrary to everything we'd expected, contained a mystifying reference to a prophecy and, of all things, a robotic cat.
It was this that I was puzzling over while Maisy busied herself in the kitchen, and our conversation was both muted and unenlightening. She was as in the dark as I was, and we sat attempting to make sense of the thing until the birds outside warned us of the day's immine

Any type of deviation is welcome into the folder, as long as it relates to DeviantART's 14th Birthday Celebration!
