AVATAR POLL Poll Twirl by the-ace-chef

avatar-inc is conducting a :bulletgreen:POLL:bulletgreen: to find out what kinds of avatars people like. Please take a second to choose the type of avvies you like most. Knowing what deviants want will help all the free avatar creators make useful avvies for the FreeAvatarProject:If you like, please help spread the word in this forum thread by simply adding your ideas or opinions about the Free Avatar Project. Thanks if you do!!

If you make free avatars for folks to use at deviantART, and if you wanna get involved, click HERE to learn how to participate in our Free Avatar Project!

:star: Avatar Contest: If you design the avatar that I decide to use for the FreeAvatarProject, I will give you a 1 month subscription to dA AND we'll keep a link to you on the group's main page until if/when we use another avvie in the future. You must be a member of our group to submit any entries. (Unlimited entries per member.) Send your entries to FreeAvatarProject in a note no later than midnight on May 30. Entries will be listed here. Good luck!

THANKS! :iconclapplz: :redrose: by Little-Vampire

Thanks to UnicornReality for the 3 month sub for avatar-inc! (It's really helped the Free Avatar Project run more smoothly.) Thanks to WDWParksGal for helping me with lots of elements for the project. (Her help has really improved things there.) And last, but not least... Thanks to 2dazed for helping me spread the word in her recent journal entries and for introducing me to H.A.N.D. (It's made all the difference in the world!)

Also, thanks :love: to everyone that left messages to my brother for earning his wings as a navy flight officer. Your messages and notes were really touching to read. It's just one more example of why this community means so much to me, and my brother appreciates your comments too.

FEATURED ARTIST :iconmuscularbeef:

Each time I update my journal I like to feature an artist that has used my stock in their art. This week's featured artist is...


MuscularBEEF has a gallery full of talent, but what sticks out to me are the fabulous movie/TV artworks she's created. I got such a huge kick out of it when she recently used one of my textures in her digital painting of Zachary Quinto as the villainous Sylar from "Heroes" above. (I try never to miss an episode of this show!) MuscularBEEF's digital and traditional art skills are not only stunning, but her images are downright fun!

So you've used some stock photos in your art, and you like the results. Now you want to share it with others for more critiques and inspiration.

FEATURED FREEBIES :flowercuddle: by Helen-Baq
This Week's Theme: SPRING THINGS

Here are some FREE goodies, which are offered by some very generous deviants for your use in your artwork! Please be sure to follow each artist's TERMS OF USE before you take anything that isn't yours.

Free Avatars

I try to make sure that each of these icons is 50x50 and under 15 kb. They are always free to use as your dA avatar within the artist's rules, though you may have to ask permission first...

2009 Contests & Projects

This is a list contests going on around deviantART, but I am NOT responsible for them. The following events are hosted by other people:
If you would like your event listed here, please send a note to me with 1) a link to your contest or project, and 2) the deadline by which entries must be received. Your contest must be for members of dA, not off-site.

PATRONS :love:
