My subscriptions ending in two months, and I want to do nice things with it until that time. I love giving features, they're a lot of fun and they really get your name out there so if you wanna win a free feature for a week (untill my subscription ends) heres what you have to do:
- Fav this journal
- Be sure to comment with 5 links to the deviations you want featured (or you won't be entered in the random drawing). **this only applies to those not finding this link on the forum**
- Do not harrass any featured artists, or you'll be out of the drawing (even if they contain things you do not agree with or hate).
- No sexual-type deviations please. Gore is ok though.
- This is open to all, you do not have to be watching me to enter.
I'll be picking 5 deviants randomly every week, so the chances of you winning is high First random drawing will be on Saturday night, posted Sunday morning. Then every Saturday night until my subscription runs out.

Those folks that needs more views. UPDATE #22*Update 22, the list's getting fairly big now and I figured it'd might become a bit awkward to browse through all these folks soooo....Those folks that needs more views. UPDATE #221 year ago in Personal More Like This
Should I begin to categorize these featured fellaz to make it easier on you guys? if so, how would you prefer to see them categorized by? (artstyle, genre, occupation,...?) *
So yeah as you folks might know, I watch a fuckton of people on dA (3,429 as of today). Among them, only a very few select individuals were added because I consider them as ''friend'' and even then a good portion of them have mad skills. So in the end I can safely say that I watch at least 3,400 individuals for their skills alone.
While a lot of them have the pageviews they deserve, a good portion of them go unnoticed because X or Y reason, whichever the case, it absolutely ENRAGE me to see those case. While browsing dA I encounter plenty of unskilled folks being sickenly popular for the sole reason that they drew some sorts of shitty naruto

My painting Resistor got over 3,200 favorites in one day. And became my most Favorited painting I have made.
So thank you!
Then today on Jan 1st, I received a Daily Deviation for my painting Double Take.
Thank you to :iconastralseed: for the suggestion and :iconkiwi-pdd: for featuring it!
Thanks for all the support from my long time friends and watchers and to the 400+ new watchers I gained in the last 2 days!
Your favorites and great compliments really keep me striving to be better.
There is a lot more to come and I can't wait to create more great paintings that you will hopefully enjoy.
I have a few upcoming shows planned for 2013 and a really big project I did a proposal for.
If I get this project, the pay will be enough to keep me a full time artist for all of 2013!
This is my dream and what I strive for, I really want this to happen.
And a reminder if you want a painting, I will ship any where in the world, jus

This weekend I painted a large mural in Chinatown!I love painting large and it is always an honor to be asked by a wonderful organization to paint at their space and represent their community visually. This week I was asked to paint a piece in Oakland Chinatown at Lincoln Square. An amazing community center the has droves of smiling people enjoying the giant ship like playgrounds, the expansive b-ball courts, and sword fighting in the lawn bowling court, to name a few. The ages ranges from 1 to 100+ and all the folks were super stoked to see this painting in process. My good friend Christopher Mackessy, ( who took most of the photos for the deviantART Gear Shop,) is also a painter, As well as a teacher. He procured the walls through the community center with the blessings and we spent the last 2 days painting. Many of his students came out and we fitted them with brushes and oversized tee shirts and they went to town with our instruction. With the help of these smiling pint sized 8 year old Picassos we crushed it with a mixtureThis weekend I painted a large mural in Chinatown!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

It will not only fix that problem, but hopefully will fix the black screen issue some users have and will include tons new content and many improvements to original FeralHeart files.

Below is the latest installment of my "favorite faves" -- the best, in my opinion, of works I faved recently. Some of these pieces you have no doubt seen; others you may be viewing for the first time. If you come across something you like please let the artist know -- give them some DA love in the form of faves and comments; also take a look at their galleries -- you might like their work so much you'll want to watch them!
Remember, everyone could use a little more DA love!
(Many of the works shown below are included in the galleries of two groups I recently started. Visit Ugly-Mug-Portraits http://ugly-mug-portraits.deviantart.com/ and Surreal-Landscapes http://surreal-landscapes.deviantart.com/ to view even more incredible art created by very talented DA artists in need of your support!)

Aside from praising her amazing skills and works, i will add that she's also a wonderful person, kind and involved with the community, always wanting to spread the dA love to everyone she meets.
