First Feature EVER! Spring FlowersI have been wanting to do a feature for a while now and I figured with the beta testing options for the new journal tools, now was a better time than any! Below are a some photographs and even some traditional art I find inspiring from people I watch on DA. I live in an area that spring has yet to show its face. I gathered these beautiful pictures to remind myself that like all things, my area will eventually thaw. I hope you enjoy these artists as much as I do!First Feature EVER!

It's spring break for me- I'm very happy to be in vacation. I've been really busy with school in the last weeks, so this week is very welcomed.
I've waited for too long: here's a feature for my 57 watchers. I've never thought I'd have so many one day. When I joined dA, alomost four years ago (I think), it was to fave and collect art I liked.
Thank you to all my watchers!

About my comics...Here is a post about my comic series'. I hope you enjoy it! If you have any questions or comments, throw 'em at me. I will probably do something like this about myself at some point too.About my comics...5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'll start with Split Screen since that's my most popular series on DA!
1. I met Jeremy in a dream where he told me his full name (Jeremy Mathew Tanner). I can't for life of me remember what we were doing in the dream, I just remember drawing him and writing his name down when I woke up.
2. When I was developing the story for the series I was listening to John Mayer's "Split Screen Sadness" which I thought really described Jeremy and Jan's relationship, so I named the series after that song. There's no video for the song, but you can listen to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPvYTx_3cOE
3. Split Screen sat largely unfinished for a LONG time. Like many of my projects, I worked on it voraciously for a few months, then it sat there. I had uploaded the first 42 pages to my personal Facebook but

Do you know the myths in which ghouls are nothing but vampire slaves? Well, I've been there! Ironically I didn't even know these stories back then, but my very first cyber presence in the year 2006 - encouraged by :icondoylespetzombie:, actually - has really been in a so-called club for vampires...

Here is the 11th journal I'm making to showcase some art that I think deserve more recognition or I just want other people to see. These people put a lot of time and care into their work and deserve to be appreciated. I'm doing these features once every few weeks or so, especially with all the positive reactions I'm getting from them. (: Now enjoy the festive feature and be sure to comment/favorite some pieces along the way!

Oh, well... I don't like calling myself a photographer. I rather say I'm an artist. My first love is drawing and painting and I'm skilled in other fields too (graphic design, fashion design, artisan crafts...). So, I just say I'm an artist.
:icondasghul:: What do you actually think is the difference between an artist, an artist with a camera and a photographer?

Slight updation to rules.We have from start been asking for your best work, now we are taking that seriously.Slight updation to rules.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
We are a huge group now and get hundreds of submissions every week, so to avoid flooding your inbox with entries we have decided to not select works that (according to majority of us) lack artistic merit. There is three vote selection system in place so it rarely happens that a submission is rejected, but it does. Most submissions will still get through (only 7-9% submissions get rejected) though, so don't be disheartened and continue being part of our family.
To make sure that this doesn't happen please make sure that you submit works that you have really worked hard on and is not an half-hearted attempt on your part. I don't wish to offend anyone , especially when I have interests in almost all types of art forms but most of our submissions are photos, so you might find us being a little bit more strict about photographic submissions.
Artistic merit is usually judged on the basis of tec
