All you have to do is "Like" the following post:…

If you are an admin in another group, please post this in your group as well!

We need about 200+ votes to bring this important issue to the first page.

What is this about? In brief, Deviant Art suddenly and without warning has placed a limit on EVERYONE of 10 submissions per day per group. I think that is more than enough for most members of most groups but should NOT be a limit on founders and group admin. We spend a lot of time looking for artwork to promote -- artwork that we think you would enjoy seeing. Not every request gets accepted, often due to inactivity, and it is not our work that creates groups that spam but rather those that have unlimited submissions for everyone (perhaps you have been in such groups before and know what I mean). But there were already solutions for this: Admin can set limits on submissions and if they do not, you can always leave or unwatch a group. This action on the part of Deviant Art was arbitrary and unnecessary.

Thank you for your help!

Hello Group,

Have you noticed that this group is doing weekly features? Do you like this?

Maybe you know that I, beachelf, the one orchestrating this group, absolutely love the artwork this group has collected over the years!

I want to thank the artists who are making this group happen!

And I enjoy tossing a spotlight on a few artists who's deviations I find delightful and enchanting.

Lets start this feature w/ an artist showing us simple quick adorable sketches..

Hands before guns…

Sunday July 10th, 2016

Hello Group,

Last week I came across a concept that I hope will grow and grow and grow.

Maybe many of you know that I, beachelf, who manages this group, live w/ my partner JonJon74 in north Florida. We have enjoyed visiting Orlando and partying at the club The Pulse which was shot to bits last month. Neither governments or educational institutions or even religions are able to stop events such as that one in Orlando, or the one in Paris last year. So.. Really.. What can I do?

Well.. This last week I came across this deviation here on dA..

Hands Before Guns Contribution by h-drawer Hands Before Guns Contribution by h-drawer

I felt a touch of hope pass through my heart as I considered the message on this deviation. I believe this is an impromptu campaign that may have potential. It’s simple actually. There's no one collecting money. There's no one to whom we swear allegiance. It's just us, people from all over the world, saying that we stand together in building a world w/ our hands before reaching for guns. And what do we do? For starters.. Let's flood the internet w/ images containing the "Hands before guns" logo and hashtag. #HandsBeforeGuns.

And now.. Let's feature a few artists who have recently entertained us, here in this group, by showing us awesome masculine images displaying beautiful affection between men.

One of most favorite artists showing us digital drawings..

Commission work by silverjow LOVE WINS by silverjow L   O   V   E by silverjow

I have read that the great artists such as Michelangelo meticulously measured the arms, legs, necks, torsos of numerous men hoping to construct a "perfect" sculpture. I believe that 3D rendering has enabled artists to do this very thing, that is, show the world a perfect masculine body. And one of my most favorite artist of such media is..
