My Thoughts on Valentines Day - FriendshipHello deviants, friends, and family.My Thoughts on Valentines Day - Friendship3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
After a horrible recent breakup in which I was repeatedly lied to, threatened, and cheated on, my thoughts on Valentines day have changed. I now believe that Valentines day is not a time for those in love to endorse that once again, there is no reason you should have to "re-endorse" such a thing with chocolates or flowers. Instead, it is a time to reach to those around you. Your friends. Your family. Tell them that you love them. Remind them that you are there for them.
And that is what I wish for you all today.
To those of you who know me personally, either in real life, or from deviantART, you know I am here for you, and I am so honored to have you all as friends.
To those of you I know less well, this next year, I want to know you better. Come say hi, drop me a message! I am so happy to be in a community where friendship is only a few clicks away, no matter where you're from or who you are.
Thank you, to all of my valentin

We here at Makorra would like to address the current contentious issues in the Legend of Korra fandom:
(no wars, bra!)
✰ Borra – We love Bolin, we love Korra. How can we possibly hate a ship comprised of our two most beloved characters? It’s impossible. And even if you’re 100% against them as a romantic pairing, we can still love and appreciate the Borra friendship, can’t we? None of this “Bolin doesn’t deserve Korra” or vice versa. K? K.

Is Korra/Avatar a kids show?spoiler alertIs Korra/Avatar a kids show?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If Michael and Bryan had a choice, i think that both shows would have been more for teens then for kids. Look at what happen on today's episode. She was on a damn cliff. She was close enough to the edge of the cliff that her tear was able to fall all the way down it rather than hitting the snow. She was standing on the edge of the cliff and she was at her “lowest point”
Yeah, I do kind of think she was contemplating suicide. She did think that she was not the Avatar anymore. She thought she was crippled and useless, and everyone knows when one Avatar passes, a new one is reborn. So maybe she considered it - just for a second - to commit suicide so that the next Avatar could be born - whole. That’s pretty fucking deep for a kids show, but maybe I’m reading too much into it.
But she was strong enough to ask for help, at least that’s why I think Aang showed up. Deep inside, she was calling for help. And she thought that she was alone. That

Comic-Con: Day 4On Sunday, the 4th and final day of San Diego Comic-Con, we were able to keep the love flowing to show the artists and art enthusiasts who came by our booth just how much they meant to us.Comic-Con: Day 43 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The last day of Comic-Con is always bittersweet. The air buzzes with positivity, inspiration, and camaraderie, but in the back of your mind, you know it may be another year before you see some of these friends, old and new. Sure, we always have the Internet, but there's something special about meeting in real life that can’t compare to flipping through a portfolio of sketches, laughing out loud with your peers, and supporting artists’ hard work right then and there.
There was rarely a moment when one of our seven kiosks wasn’t occupied by an artist. Young or old, newbie or professional, digital or traditional, the chance to sit down and create art was difficult to pass up with inspiration coming from every direction.

ONLY MEMBERS can have their wishes listed. Please read this blog to learn how to join!
Why would I be declined from joining?
We decline deviants for various reasons. As a group geared towards creating a positive atmosphere on deviantART, we try really hard to not decline anyone. We do decline anyone in clear violation of deviantART policy and those individuals who harass the admins of this group. As of 8/25/2013, accounts under 1 month of age are not permitted to join due to difficulties that have experienced with these members regarding moved accounts among other factors (although once a new account that wasn't from a moved deviant has turned 1 month old, they may attempt to join). Accounts that are under 1 month from a moved member will be required to mention the name of their previous account during review.

:iconthesmallwonder: Some thoughts from Katie (thesmallwonder)
Spring has sprung and April showers have started raining down here at HQ.
Winter rain makes me want to crawl back into bed, get a hot cup of coco, and read a book all day. But there’s something different about April showers...
Maybe it’s because it’s less cold outside, or that the days are longer, but springtime rain makes me want to play in puddles.I want to go outside and smell the fresh air, and I just feel rejuvenated. Spring is a time for me to dust off old projects and start new ones. Forget New Years, April's when I get inspired!
I want to hear from you!
Do you play in the rain?
Does spring inspire you?

:iconestunt:Some thoughts from Matt (mattdanna)
Being raised Roman Catholic, Christmas is a big ordeal for my family. On Christmas Eve, we would always celebrate Christmas with my Mom's side of the family and we would participate in this weird yankee swap gift exchange. It's such an evil game because only one person really ends up being happy with the gift they receive, and everyone else wants to strangle that person. Unfortunately, I always ended up with a gag gift. On Christmas Day, we would go to church and then have my Dad's side of the family over for a gluttonous late lunch/early dinner.
I participated in these annual traditions for 21 years. Last Christmas was the first year I did not travel home for the holidays. I had just moved out to Los Angeles a couple mon

Have you ever wanted to create a photomanipulation in an older style or using a past cliche, perhaps with big, fluffy dresses or butterfly wings? Perhaps you wanted to make a lizard-creature or a vampire? Get excited! This is your chance to modernize an older look and win prizes!!
To celebrate DA's birthday, we'll be going retroactive. That means your job is to create a NEW photomanipulation from an older style. Do not copy someone else's art; rather, create a new, unique artwork inspired by an older style or theme.
This is not an attempt to bring back old styles or cliches. Rather, this contest is a chance to celebrate the evolution of the photomanipulation community. Here's the trick: Your job is to take an old style or theme and make it your own: fresh, relevant, unique, and creative!
Here are just a couple of stylistic examples just to show you what we'r
