:bulletgreen:  Daily-Drawing - Provides 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!
:bulletgreen: InternationalFAQ - Our efforts to bring the FAQ to the community in different languages will take some time. For the time being, we are focusing only on translating general questions for adCast, deviantART, deviantFILM, deviantWEAR, Groups, Ordering Support, Subscription Service, and Prints Service.
:bulletgreen: DeviantCare -  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 members 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.
:bulletgreen: 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.
:bulletgreen: 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.
:bulletgreen: 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.
:bulletgreen: 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.
:bulletgreen: iPhotograph - A fantastic Photography group that is based in a chatroom on dAmn. We host critique nights a few times a week . We are here to help you improve on your photography and answer any questions you may have with cameras. So stop by the iPhotograph Chatroom and say hello.
:bulletgreen: photohunt - A fun Photography game! The task is you will be given a word and you have 20 minutes to go shoot it and post it in the Photohunt Chat Best photo wins! I dare you guys to come play just ONE game. You will be hooked.

Whoas - Theme:  Green

:note: To contribute to the next installment of "Pimps & Whoas" please include it in the comments below with the appropriate links and information.  If promoting groups, please include a description so people know why they should check it out! Also use devtags not icontags eg:communityrelations not :iconcommunityrelations:

What I'm looking for from you guys:
:bulletred: News, Features or Interviews you want to promote
:bulletred: Groups you want me to feature or highlight
:bulletred:  deviations that follow the theme for that issue
:bulletred: DevMEETs or events going on around you or being hosted by you.
:bulletred: Commission information for those looking for Commissions

#Critique-It focuses on one medium each critique cycle to give as much concentrated feedback to each artist as possible. We offer points for those who leave especially good comments and require to anyone who submits to the group also comment at the group. In April we're focusing on Black and White Photography!

#SolutionsSanctuary is a new group aimed at disproving myths and curing complaints around deviantART. We host monthly challenges and other activities. April's challenge is to stalk a CV or $taff member, and we'll give you points to do it!



Thanks! :heart:
