I don't know that it really counts as a commission project so much as a fundraiser in general, but if it counts, my Burning Man crew is doing a fundraiser over on Indiegogo.
aka...#Incendiary-Intent is trying to raise money wooo [link] :D

Daniiie! Am I late? :ohnoes:

If not, could you please pimp up the Fan Art community's brand new Unofficial Fandom Calendar? :flirty: The dates must be filled!
IridescentStardust Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Blaugh!! I know you said post suggestions by tuesday, but it's still technically tuesday xD if it's too late, that's fine <3

However! I would love you forever if you would promote the group #Daily-Drawing . It gives a main topic, then three smaller ideas every day. Artists can use all of them in one picture, or just choose whichever. Any type of art is accepted, but it's mainly to help people expand what they draw, get themselves out of art blocks, and motivate!

The group #InternationalFAQ please :)

:o I was going to ask if you could pimp our group #Lit-Visual-Alliance and you already did. :giggle:
Armonah Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2012
I'd love it if the group #DeviantCare could be featured in the next installment. It was founded just a few days ago, and it's a group where people can talk about personal issues in private, because not everyone may feel comfortable talking about it in public or with people who know them personally, for one reason or another. We have counselors with knowledge and personal experience dealing with a lot of different issues, and we hope our experiences and advice will help other people who are dealing with the same.
zaz14ispottermad Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2012  Student Photographer
could you please promote two things please.
one my new group
#The-DA-advice-line We are a group dedicated to helping people in any way possible, we have an anonymous advice journal, submit a problem and we will try our best to help, tutorials and support for everyone. We want to help people in every way possible. if you have a question we have the answer for it. We can help you with problems that you have, personal, educational, DA problems, bullying, etc etc.
We won't give up on you.

and second my 'member a month' project, aimed at providing 12 deviants with memberships, the memberships will get bigger each month.
this is the link to the journal ---->[link]

Here are recent issues from my Undiscovered Feature - [link] [link] [link]

Groups -
#OC-Challenge - Not your normal original character group, we post regular challenges in which you take the theme and create a piece of work using your own original characters. Awesome prizes from dA subscriptions, features, and art! We also advertise commissions and contests for our members.

#DragonsandElves - A group for people who love the leading races of fantasy - dragons and elves. If you love to find art of the beautiful creates or even love to draw them yourself, then this is a great group to check out. Also hosts regular contests and advertises the commissions and contests of its members.

#CarolinaAnimeArtists - A gathering place for artists from North and South Carolina. We accept anime/manga, cartoon/comic, and anthro art. Our group is new, but we plan to hosts contests, advertise the commissions and contests of our members, and plan regular devMEETS at local conventions.

For The Green Theme -
