Feedback Feature

Thu Apr 17, 2014, 12:57 AM by ginkgografix:iconginkgografix:

A common complain at DD's is, that I don't feature enough 'deserving' artists. It is not possible to feature each and everyone via DDs, as there are technical and chronological restrictions, but it is possible to feature them otherwise. But if I would pick them all, it would be limited to what I see while browsing or going through my message center again.

This feature should be different. This will rely on what you show to me!
Know an artist that is totally unknown, but does great stuff? Show me! Know an artist that just started and could need some more exposure? Show me!
It's your chance to show the world art you like or want more support for, even your own.

Each week I will pick up to 25 artworks that you linked me to and feature them. Additionally there will be one deviant highlighted as well.
There is no theme and the only restriction would be that the artworks should be from the deviantART related galleries(this does include avatars, profile customization, dAr tutorials within Stock & Resources, as well as random Fella/llama related artworks in other galleries) and that the deviant, you suggest, should have a good amount of dAR works in their gallery.

Feedback Feature #1

The deadline is the 23rd April 2014 (GMT+2). The feature will be posted at the 24th.

Share the artworks you would like to see included in the first feature as a thumb in the comment section. Please do not post more than one deviation for each deviant you suggest per week.
If you are going to suggest an artist for the feature, it is fine to post more though.

Any help to spread the word is greatly appreciated!
Share, fav and talk about this, so that we can feature a lot of new and 'old' dArtists!

Senior Week deviantART-Related Chat Event Summary

Earlier today we held a chat event in the #seniors chat room on dAmn! It consisted of 20 questions relating to deviantART as well as a bonus question and a FLASH MOB event! Overall, it was a wonderful event, and we had a great turn-out!

Trivia Winners

These folks each won a 3-Month Premium Membership for placing in our trivia portion of the event:

Congratulations, guys! You certainly do know your dA trivia! :la:


After trivia, we held a FLASH MOB event and sent everyone in the chat to either Moonbeam13's, Astralseed's, or Kaz-D's profile with a special and sincere message. :heart: These guys each participated and were randomly selected as our winners:

Congratulations! You'll all receive 1,000 :points: for your participation! :heart:

Stay tuned to projecteducate for more Senior Week happenings! :la:

I'll have 18 slots open, for 2 points each. Ponies or girls. I need some points ^^;

They'll just be a basic sketch and lines. I hope its worth the price...
I can color it for an extra 2 points.

2-15: :icononigiria:
Hey there guys! Here's a quick look at some of the rules here!

What’s allowed:
1. Pseudo legendary pokemon such as: Absol, Zoroark, Unknown, Dragonite, Tyranitar, Salamence, Metagross, Garchomp, Hydreigon, Goodra, Kingdra, Slaking, Arcanine, Aggron, Flygon, Lucario, Volcarona, and Noivern. If you have any questions about pseudo legendaries, please note me!
2. Two ghost characters and two zombie characters for each member ^^
3. Artistic freedom with the pokemon of choice!
4. Pokemon cross-breeds/fusions. An undead eevee/cubone?? AWESOME!!
5. Dual types of any kind, such as electric/ghost, etc.
5. Contributions to the Basement! If you can think of anything to sell there, please put it down there!

What’s not allowed:
1. No legendary pokemon allowed! Having one would be considered god-modding! Also, it would be odd to see a dead legendary running around.

2. Demons. I do not mind if you make your character evil, but they can’t be demons. This group is for ghosts and zombies ONLY!

2. God-modding or power-play. If you make your pokemon invincible, it isn’t very fun anymore for anyone!

3. No Mary/Gary Sues! Nobody’s perfect.

4. NO BULLYING!!!! I have a one-strike-you’re-out program. You will get one warning. If I catch you bullying someone more than once, you will be kicked out and BANNED from this group. If someone is bullying you, please let me know. Copy and paste what they said in a message and I will take a look. I refuse to play the “he-said, she-said” game!

5.  +18 stuff. The rating for this group is PG-13! I intend to keep it that way. I don’t mind gore, but anything else I will turn down.  
6.  More than 4 characters. I need to know that you are gonna use your characters or at least draw them one other time other than their refs.
7. Pokemorphs and fakemon.  Sorry guys!
8. Regular ghost type pokemon. Yes, I went there XD They gotta be different from their normal selves!

Character Classes:
Spirit (ghost, good)
Poltergeist (ghost, bad)
Thriller Zomb (zombie, good)
Spiteful Zomb (zombie, bad)

Character creation:
Fill this form out and draw your character! Pretty easy ^^
Date of birth:
Date of death:
Cause of death:
Type of ghost or zombie:
History (can be however long you want):

Extras (optional)
Personal quotes:
Theme song:
Favorite haunting place:

Everyone gets what's called Ectocubes (cubed solid ectoplasm) to spend. You can spend it on items, TMs, and other things in The Basement. Each new member starts out with 100 Ectocubes.

And now, what you've all been waiting for! The quests you'll be doing are called "hauntings". each character race has their own! If you'd like to suggest any new 'hauntings" and stuff like that, please message me!

Hauntings (for ghosts):
1. A pesky visiting pokemon won’t stop blabbering about how “ghosts aren’t real”! Do us all a favor and scare the daylights outta him! Draw your character(s) scaring a pokemon. Worth 50 Ectocubes. +5 Ectocubes if you use two characters of your own.
2. Since you’re still new, let’s practice a few ghostly abilities. Draw your character(s) using one of these abilities: possession, walking through walls, putting a curse on someone, etc. Worth 20 Ectocubes and one ghost type TM of your choice.
3.  Get know your neighbors! Draw your character(s) forming a tag team with a zombie character! Worth 15 Ectocubes and an item of your choice.

Hauntings (for zombies):
1. Every zombie has a special grave that they adore! Draw your character(s) at their gravesite, either popping out of their grave or standing by it. Worth 40 Ectocubes. You can also get one ground type TM of your choice.
2.  You must be starved! Let’s go find a “dinner guest” to dine on! Draw your character eating a pokemon! Worth 30 Ectocubes. +6 if you use two characters of your own.
3. Get know your neighbors! Draw your character(s) forming a tag team with a ghost character! Worth 15 Ectocubes and an item of your choice.

Special Haunts:
1. Time to explore! Let’s get out of this boring tower… Draw your character(s) exploring a new haunted place (graveyard, school, whatever you want!). You get a secret prize!
2. It’s Halloween here at Pokemon Tower. How do you spend your Halloween? Draw your character(s) doing something such as scaring people, making costumes, stealing candy, etc. on Halloween.

The 5000th day of DeviantART!

As I look in my mirror I see a girl,
She is sad,
She is crying,
She feels pain,
She feels betrayed,
She is torn between two,
Halves of herself,
She feels sick,
I look down,
Down at my phone,
It has two messages,
One from a boy,
The other from a boy,
One reads "I love you",
And so does the other,
I cry,
Cry because a choice must be made,
Between myself,
Between the messages,
Between love,
Between darkness,
I look away and run.
