Hellooo :wave: Hope everybody had a nice day :party: Welcome new members and watchers! Thank you for joining and thanks to the contributors of our galleries for letting me show your amazing works here. So today, as each week i will open a space for all the members to get one work featured in exchange of the many times your works get declined. In this space quality does not matter, is to help you out to get more exposure. Thats the points of every group but cause this group is for high quality works only i can not always accept your works. NOTICE: once the features is done, i will not add more thumbs, so dont be late! :) The thumbs only work
Hug a Deviant Day
Hug a Deviant Day March 27, 2010 is the first Hug a Deviant Day! For the last few days, I have had this nagging idea to spread some community love. There are many ways to hug, here are just a few :hug: :tighthug: :huggle: :glomp: I'm sure there are more out there! Now, I don't want everyone to go spamming every page you find, but make them mean something special! What we do want is, go to someone you talk to frequently, someone who gives your art love often, or someone who supports your projects, or just leaves you a lovely comment here or there! Let them know it's 'hug a deviant day', and make it mean something! Something simple li

MyntKat has been hosting Costumery Week :excited: all this week at deviantART.

I'm super excited about this because even though I know almost nothing about making costumes, I am going to provide you with insights about costume design by featuring deviant tutorials!

If you love costumes, this article will hopefully be a great resource to provide you with...
  • TUTORIALS that will answer all of your costumery questions
  • Links to ARTICLES that feature even more costuming info
  • Some fabulous features of COMPLETED COSTUMES
  • Art GROUPS that specialize in costumes
(I feel I should mention that none of the articles or features below are in chronological order. Everything is placed by the days that were most appropriate for each link's subject.)

I wish I had a sewing machine. I wouldn't do whole costumes but I'd definitely accent my wardrobe a bit, plus turn out knicknacks to sell...by the dozens.

Wow... didn't really think my tutotial would be featured anywhere because of the slightly blurry pics (been thinking up updating it with better quality pics). Nonetheless, it is cool to get featured and if my tutorial can help someone then what other thing can I do then wish good luck! :D
Thanks for the feature!
