Hello Again!Beautiful Features...
I am very happy to tell you that I recently assumed ownership of Sublime Rush from the amazing RockstarVanity. I know I have some awesome shoes to fill there, but I am really looking forward to keeping the momentum of the magazine going. I have quite a few interviews lined up with some amazing artists around the world. There will be an In Review & Preview Issue at the end of August and then Issue 008 will be out at the end of October.
Send me a note here if you are interested in being in Sublime Rush or contributing, or email email@example.com.
And if you are not familiar, you can check out the magazine here: www.sublimerush.com (http://www.sublimerush.com/)
I have been trying to keep up with stuff over at 4bstr4ct4rt more lately. I think a few people thought the
Things That Changed Other Things
The Sketchbook Project 2011 Tour was created by the Arthouse Co-op in Brooklyn, NY. It is the fifth tour with many themes for the artists to choose from. Iaian Greenson (DoctorBalls), from Toronto, Canada, chose the theme "Things That Changed Other Things". His sketchbook explores this theme with 73 pages of beautiful artwork. As Iaian's sketchbook tours the US he will be notified each time a person looks at his work of art. Each journal on the tour will have a barcode and will be checked out by the viewer like a library book. Eventually his sketchbook will make it back to the Brooklyn Art Library to be part of their permanent collection.
Check out the sketchbook on the tour if you can. Otherwise you can see Iaian's sketchbook here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/58747210N07/sets/72157625905407970/

Interesting Color PalletsSitting here a little bummed that my long weekend is almost over and I will have to go back to the grind tomorrow. I am ridiculously behind on some projects, but I need to get everything done before my little trip to Canada next week. I best get busy!
As I was faving a ton of stuff from my watch folder today, I thought that "interesting colour pallets" would make a nice feature...

Whoa...!!! :-) + Violet FeaturesChecked my messages this morning to be greeted by someone congratulating me on the senior status. I have to admit, I was happily surprised. And it is an honor to have it happen on Deviant's birthday.
Thanks to everyone who stopped to say congrats. And thanks to everyone who watches me and my art.
Special thanks to Senecal. I have mentioned it before, but he has been a huge influence on me over the past few years. One thing he has always stressed to me is having a sense of community. I have tried other online art communities out there, and I have to say, dA has been one of the best. All of the art and the people have really been an inspiration.
Okay, enough of all that. Some violet features for you all!

Diagram of a Scam LetterRecently I had someone send me a note on Etsy expressing interest in purchasing one of my artworks, "Jupiter Surfaces". At first I was excited to make a sale, but then I began to analyze the note. I thought, I wonder who this is that they need to be so private about the sale um, answer is that it is a scam to get my money.
I thought I would share this, with a little break down of it, for all of you who sell your art or crafts online.
"RE: Jupiter Surfaces, Item # xxxx:
I am interested in the immediate purchase of your item and will be make payment via cashier check/money order, my private shipping company will handle the shipping, but before payment will be made i need to be sure of who i am dealing with if you are going to be honest and sincere throughout the transaction. A certified cashiers check is cash-able the same day,there is going to be an excess fund on the check ,the excess fund is meant for the private shipping company who will come to your place for pick up of the ite

PE: How to Make Pixel CloudsHow to Make Pixel Clouds
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to make pixel clouds. I have two different types of clouds I use depending on the piece; semi-realistic, and cartoon style. I will be showing you both today!
Let us start!
The semi realistic style can be done two ways, depending on if you are limiting colors or not.
First, I'm going to show you the way for if you do not care how many colors you use.
First you will pull out your pencil brush, as you would normally do when making pixel art, and set the color to white. After that, set the opacity to around 10%-20%.
Randomly brush side to side with the pencil, and then overlap some lines randomly as well.
Keep doing that until the cloud if about as big as you need it; it should look something like this.c:

DeviantART Compliments #94XxWicked
You are an amazing artist and one of my best friends on Da. You were one of the first people I talked to when I joined Da, back then you were an inspiration but now you help me continue to draw. Your drawings are always beautiful and they each have something special in them thats stands out from the rest. I hope you continue to do what you're doing and remember, if your feeling sad or hurt inside you can always talk. <3
There's a very special deviant everyone should know. HiddenLeafDragon is a good friend of mine, always has been and always will be. He's really funny, very sweet, and super nice He's one of those rare cool people with great skill and talent, and I think everyone should check out his page, because he's really worth the time.
Another deviant who seems to be a little sad lately is Toetag001 She doesn't use her account much anymore, but she's really in need of a cheer-up. She doesn't like attention, but she deserves it! She's a sweetheart and I

Introducing, the new place for RAF deviants(icon pending )
We now have a group! . Instead of being featured on my profile, your feature will be posted through the group. The concept is still the same, you just send suggestions to the group with all the information filled out (look below for more details). I will then create a journal featuring your friend, that will be up for a full week! The journal will feature five recommended friends. It will also include a tidbit about the recommended friend, including why you should check them out. Once a month, all of the suggesters will be featured in an epic roundup journal.
HOW TO RECOMMEND
Please send the group RecommendAFriend, a note titled
Who Reads dA Lit? A MissionHello deviantART lit community. I have a mission for you. I would like to create an infographic of the readers and writers on deviantART as well as provide a resource for helping the writers of deviantART understand their audience: who they are, what they like, what they want, and their opinions on dA lit. To do so, I have created an easy to complete survey that can be completed anonymously and can be found here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1FvpHEYCrYV2V1YBmogZ4DZoKeEHXlJB-qGRyDa-BLGc/viewform?usp=send_form
Who Reads dA Lit?
The results will be shared in about a month's time on May 18 as raw data for the community to analyze themselves. In the meantime, I would like to ask if you could complete the survey and spread the word to other deviantART members. It is anonymous.
Thank you for your time,
