Hi! :wave:

I'd like to promote my newest issue of "The Great Mandelbulber"! This time, the artist featured is *GrahamSym! [link]
I'd also like to promote an idea from =SlaveToTrends, which is called DeviantDiscovery. Its aim is to feature underappreciated artist. This is the journal with all the infos: [link]
And here are the list of the previous features: [link]
I think it's a great idea that deserves more exposure. :love:
Thank you very much! :love:

Group: #Muro-For-Membership- a monthly repeating contest group open to everyone. Each month a list of themes is provided and deviants must make a muro drawing using at least two themes. Two winners, who will each receive a one month premium membership, are picked at random, so there's no need to worry about skill or creativity. Muro For *Membership contests run from the 15th through the 20th of every month. For more information click here.

Digital Art Feature Article: Digitized: October 2012

Group: #Pokemon-Revolution - Home of all Pokemon Fanatics! The main concentration of the group is wifi battling and helping to support other deviants in their gameplay. We also have a monthly feature article called PR Monthly that features the work of the members of the group. We also run contests every week or so for point prizes! :la:

Hi all Wordpress users, I'm collection deviation on my personal web pages in this blog:

But actually I'm at the end of styling work for the template on rss feeds from deviantart.

I used a plugin to collect the feeds as posts on pages (you cana ccess that by the upper menus, art, 3D, design, and journal) I'd like to know if some wordpress user here would prefer me to publish a plugin styled for deviantart feeds or if you'd rather have me publishing a whole theme for collecting deviantions and journals on a wordpress blog.
ValaSedai Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you for including my article! :hug:

Would it be possible to include my project Icons for a Good Cause again in the next issue, since it is still ongoing? :)
And maybe my newest feature series, the most recent issue can be found here: Scenery Spotlight IV

Thank you! <3

And two ideas for the upcoming whoas:
