 These are some of my recent favourites over the last few months. Enjoy! Feel free to give these works some faves and comments!
I haven't done a feature in a while. I know this one isn't as well organized as my last one was, and my membership expired so I can't use a pretty journal skin, but that shouldn't have any effect on how beautiful these works are!

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 17, 2014, 5:26 PM



/!\ IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH WHAT'S BELOW, READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE BEFORE TO YELL IN THE VOID /!\



Okay I don't think I'm going to make some friends with this, but I'm kind of sick and tired of what's going on here.

DeviantART is a creative website where one can put one's art. No matter how skilled one might be. You can be whether a professional or an occasional drawer, it doesn't matter as long as you have this love for Art.

But there are limits, for God's sake. WHAT THE HELL ARE ALL THESE FATTY/UGLY/FURRY/DISGUSTING DEVIATIONS DOING ON THE "WHAT'S HOT" PAGE??

Seriously, do you believe this is art? I don't. This is just not showable. It certainly has some skills, but what's with people's minds these days?!

  Sexy no Jutsu 2 by 0pik-0ort  You'll be safe... by muhboobz  Commission - Mii Kouryuuji by Axel-Rosered

Nano by 0pik-0ort  Inflation these days by Satsurou

AND THIS THING I CAN'T EVEN QUALIFY...Furry can be acceptable, but not sexy-furry, these things have animal heads, how can you find this "yummy" or even make drawings about "cutie" nude fox girls?!

Now let's talk about morphs and manips. How is this arousal or even likeable? Most of the time people just take random pictures on the internet without knowing where the pictures come from...

Dangerous Curves 4 by bootycheekpete  DRUMSTICKS 5 by bootycheekpete

This is not even a DAT ASS-game. This is totally absurd and useless. What's the point of making such big butts and show it on an unrelated website?

Now the Nude Art part.

THIS is nothing but cheap/free porn. I'm not going to show the miniatures, just the links:

- THIS
- THIS
- THIS
- AN EXEMPLE OF "I DISRESPECT MYSELF"
- AND ANOTHER ONE AMONG THE 10000000000 PICS AVAILABLE

And I just find pathetic how people worship the "power" or the "strenght" of the photo only because it shows some intimate parts. A model? Seriously? This is just a random woman who doesn't respect herself. A pussy isn't "oustanding" nor "awesome", but you know, guys (and girls I guess), there are all kinds of porn sites if you want to spend some time playing with your stuff.

And I'm not talking about the Hentai part: Look at THIS and THIS. There are thousand of others (of course).

I don't have anything against provocative drawings, Robaato is doing an awesome job on his women curves:

SWORDS ILLUSTRATED May Ideas by Robaato  Golden Globes by Robaato  PAM by Robaato

THIS, on the other hand, is Nude Art (even though it's not always full-nude):

Angie #2 by AnnaMazur  Diptych by armene  thin red lines by athrawn 

The Art Of Light (Version IV) by stefangrosjean


Now Fanarts. Fanarts can be great, and I don't understand why some people complain about it. It's just a medium, whoever says "I unwatch you because you do fanart omg burn lol I am so cool" doesn't really get the full meaning of it. These reactions are so hilarious they can be sometimes barely adorable...

THIS, is pure awesomeness, and it doesn't alterate the artists' styles:

Maleficent by sakimichan  -Tyrantrum- by arvalis  Elsa (frozen) by Jiyu-Kaze 

Skulltula Ambush by NateHallinanArt  Poison Ivy Sideshow Art by Artgerm


THIS, and I'm so sorry for you guys, is... just NO:

- THIS MLP ZOOPORN
- ZELDA'S SECRET BACKDOOR (This title...)
- SOME PEACH?

And some Samus:

Pear Samus by Metalforever  Samus Caught a Misty 7 by Ragnarahk 

It's not just about making sluts out of pixelated famous digital girls, it's also about highlighting the fact you're digging non-existing-forever on screen characters...


Again, I AM SO SORRY for all the drawings I've mentioned as "black sheeps". People can have their own dreams or fantasize about whatever or whoever they want, but please, this is not the appropriated website to show your inner lust.

DeviantART is a website for creative people, and shouldn't be involved into such explicite content.

LEARN WHERE TO POST YOUR STUFF! THERE ARE PLENTY OF SITES WAY BETTER THAN HERE TO HOST YOUR SPECIFIC
CREATIONS.

As the song says:
"To create or come up with something that is to thrill, one must place one's soul between the hammer and the anvil".

So please, I know this is an utopy but redetermine conditions that would make a What's Hot page worthy of the name!

Welcome to yet another round of awesome Big Thumbs!  If you are interested you can always check out the previous features in this collection :D

:star: Big Thumbs? :star:


To make a big thumb all you do is append the word big in the thumbnail.  This is a very handy feature when doing features.  Here is how it is done:
