=== Please read below for important updates about our group!! ===
Dear Group Members, Family, Friends and Watchers:
Whoa! It's been such a long time since we've had one of these things. That's not good- I hate keeping my group members out of the loop. Things have been really busy around here, even though it may not seem like it.
We've been working on a lot of cool stuff behind the scenes to help out more artists, and to do it for free.
But more on that later.
WE FINALLY REACHED 8k MEMBERS!
This is a day of celebration! It's been a long time in coming, and now we are thisclose to being a 10k group- a true titan in the land of dA. SOON WE WILL DOMINATE! In fact, with a new icon, I think that we could even pass up AAW one day! But even if we don't I'm still really proud of you! Seeing this group grow up right before my eyes is amazing, and it's not even done yet!
For those who have been an E4E artistocrat from the icy beginning, you know we've been through a lot.
Ups and downs, it was a rollercoaster ride. But from that frosty december morning all those years ago until today, believe me, it has been a whole lotta fun.
There's no way I would ever claim this victory on my own. In fact, without my wonderful admins, this never could've happened.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of Jellieviefish, Enemom (our new cofounder) and countless others, this group IS on track to have 10k members before thanksgiving.
Please- take a moment to thank our admins- send them notes, drop a comment or two.
It would make their day, and it would be an easy way to show your appreciation.
In other news, we do have a new literature folder called "everything literature". Please submit all your written works there from now on, thanks ^^
Also, there is still time to enter and win our FREE 130 Point Giveaway!!
It's happening right here! Giveaway link ==> fav.me/d6hfq5q

And lastly, but not least, our feature presentation:
Let me tell you about narm
You know, I just love coming across artists like this. These are good people, who for some reason have just gone unseen by the masses. But for such raw talent to go unnoticed for over 8 years is almost criminal.
Now I know you might have your doubts, so take a look for yourself:
Sometimes I just have to journal. When I see good art, I spread the word. This is something that cannot be bought, at any price.
It just strikes a chord, and I hope you feel the same way. I hope that one day, we all will share, and look out for one each other.
Because, newsflash- this group will NOT work without YOU.
I know how it feels, you're in a hurry to submit your art, so you dip in and dip out--
All without taking the time to look at the artwork around you in the gallery.
I know because I am guilty of the same thing :/
But even though it might seem like a victimless crime, that's not the case. There's only one victim. You.
You deprive your eyes of the chance to see beautiful artwork, all in the name of speed. Nobody else looks at anyone's work in the gallery, defeating the purpose of putting it there in the first place.
Which also means that your art won't get that boost in views you've been hoping for.
You see, no matter how many people a group has, if nobody is looking at any of the art- the group is dead.
I don't know about you, but I don't want a dead group.
But there is only so much someone like me can do. It's up to you to look around you and enjoy some of the other works in the group, otherwise- well, you know.
On a positive note, I have a few questions for you:
Should we go to an alphabetical folder system?
Are we ready for a super group membership when we hit 10k people, or not.
And as always, if you have any ideas or problems, note the group or drop a comment.
A kind and tenderhearted assistant is ready to take your call.
As always, your friend, artvelocity
Some Quick Notes:
To help get the word out, we've opened a new sister group where you can advertise your contests and commissions- free of charge. Check out dACentral Your one stop shop for contests, news, updates and yes, points too!
We have 10 spots available to feature your art with! Click here for more info:
With low prices starting at 20 points, anybody can afford a spot up there. Heck, we're practically giving them away.
We will be opening a new adoptables group soon, which means that this group will (eventually) no longer be accepting them. Sorry about that. Until then, Creativity-Corner could be of service to you, or you can still submit them here until Evrything-Adoptables opens.
Remember, all the proceeds go to helping this group host contests (which are coming soon), and helping dACentral get off the ground.
Please keep all this in mind-
And thanks for joining
