Hello all! :wave: revamp 

blue heart bullet Here's the update section of this post. Please feel free to skip it, or come back to it later if you like. blue heart bullet

I had a lot going on last month, so I didn't write a feature on the 15th. Boo. Sorry, I just didn't have it in me. I'd rather wait than publish something I didn't invest enough time in. Shrug I've decided to start writing my features ahead of time to a certain extent, so that I am less likely to run into such a problem in the future. Although, I don't want to completely lose the "in the moment" feeling of writing about what I'm thinking about that day.

My previous feature was:


I plan to do another watcher feature when I've gotten up to 30 watchers. The faster I get new watchers, the more quickly I'll be able to write those; also, they'll become more valuable, because I'll be able to reach a wider audience. Nod 

I'll be featuring all of my watchers in each watcher feature I write; so that people that have been watching me for awhile will have an incentive to stick around and to post new work. Hug 

If there's a limit to how many images I can link to in each journal (?) ...once I get to that point, I'll think of a different, fair way to do it. I am a dummy! 

So, I found a cool group that's helpful on that front:

:iconget-watchers:

It has really helped me to connect with other deviants. I just joined yesterday, and I already found several interesting people to watch. :bademoticon: 

blue heart bullet Anyway, on to the feature: blue heart bullet

This month is world oceans month (with world oceans day being on June 8th), so I thought this would be a great time to feature all sorts of related artwork! Boogie!

Here's some more information about world oceans month, and related topics:

That's just a couple of links to get you started. There's a wealth of information out there! Sailing the seven seas

So, the ocean is important to me, for many reasons. The primary reason is because I experience a rapturous enjoyment of water; I always have. My first clear memory, when I was around 18 months old, is of staring at "gigantic" waves from a beach in Cape May and being really, really excited about it. At least, the waves looked gigantic to me at the time. I was still pretty short, hahaha.

I plan to write various features concerning different types of water-related artwork in the future. I have already made a themed collection, Water.

There's a lot more I could write on the subject, but I think I'd rather just let the art speak for itself. blue heart bullet 

Note: For the sake of fairness, I started with my oldest favorites, and worked my way forward. So, aside from chronological, these aren't in any special order.

You're welcome! Haha, I only just found out too. I think it's sort of new? I know world oceans day has been around since 1992, but this year is the first time I've heard of either world oceans day or world oceans month.

biggest feature i ever seen...
also, u do not need to send notifications. they are send automatically by the site whenever someone work is being featured somewhere...
LilyBlight's avatar
LilyBlightHobbyist General ArtistFeatured
Thanks for the heads-up. I'm aware of that, but some people respond well to comments... and some of the work I featured hadn't gotten comments yet. So I just figured I'd be fair and give everyone a positive comment.

Also, thanks for the favorite. :)

Yeah, fair enough... but a lot of people don't bother with feedback
