7 Reasons Why Bases Rock !
Hi There Everyone !
Today I Want To Share With You All My 7 Reasons Why I Think Bases Really Help People On DeviantArt & Why They Deserve A Lot More Attention .
If You Love Bases Then PLEASE Support This & Spread It Around, I’ll Love You Loads If You Do . :D
1. Bases Are FUN ! Art Can Be Stressful For A Lot Of People, Especially When They Make Anatomy Or Style Mistakes A Lot, So It’s A Lot Of Fun To Just Be Able To Add Some Hair & Clothing To A Base & There You Have It, A Piece Of Art .
2. It’s No Secret That 99.999% of Bases On DA Are Anime, So Bases Will Obviously Bring A Lot Of People From The Anime Community Together . What’s Wrong With A Little Bit Of Unity ? :D
3. You Get To Stare At Naked Bodys ! Haha, Not In That Way !
Seriously Though Looking At Different Poses & Figures Without Being Distracted By Clothes Helps Us To Learn Anatomy . In A Way, Using Bases Is Like Staring At A Naked Model For A While .
4. You Get To Get Your OCs Out There . I’m Not The

Spring of 2019
It's another spring, and the first spring greetings are here.
Hello all!

I have been neglectful. I should have made a feature and a journal entry long ago. Anyway, I felt like it today and here is the deal. I will try to make an entry and a feature every month at least. But it would be also nice if you gave the artists featured some love. I will look at the comments and make all of you something special from me. A feature, a drawing, a photo. Oh, what the heck, I might even write you a poem. Any special requests? Just leave those in the comments section. If you find some of my art to your liking - comments and faves are always welcome and spreading the words as well. I can print something and send you as a postcard if you like it.  But, anyway, here goes the feature for February - the month of my name day (February 27).

Ghost of the Net by alexiuss -> Oh don't even get me started on his comics. Love them to Hell and back.
Curiosity BW by gluteusmaximus he has pleasantly surprised me a lot. Beautiful.
I Love Winter 1324 by Sooper-Deviant -> I love his photos and he always makes me go "awww" about the newest ones.
Riga6 by MrIQ -> I love his simplicity. Hope he visits me some day.
Killer Instinct by Schindlersky -> love his work and goes with my feeling for today. 
Oh Hey Look Snow by MRBee30 -> He is seriously insane! Amazing work and awesome person! Hugs!

I am Lee. Nice to meet you. I've been here for a while now and dA makes me want to be a better artist. :)

Learning still but I hope I'm doing a good job at that. Postcrosser so send me something and a couchsurfer and geocacher as well.
I love dropping comments here and there.

.If Lee was a drug, she would no doubt be pure heroin - dangerous, mysterious and totally addictive.

Hi Lee, I would love to join this site. I have just realised that I like to draw, literally in the last month. Now whether I am any good is another subject entirely. But - you never know, I might learn something here.

Maashellee Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
You can always learn something. I keep learning all the time and I have re-started drawing as well. 
See you around, love.
