Alpha tester
As an alpha tester, I have to test deviantART features before they are released to beta testing. It means testing with different types of accounts and groups and different browsers. Alpha testers recruiting is closed for now.

:heart: dAWishingWell founder
dAWishingWell is a group to help deviants with their dA wishes like getting more watchers, gathering some points, exchanging llamas and more. Everybody can join and make a wish (but please read the rules first).

:damphyr: Gangsta of Love (AWW)
Angels Without Wings (AWW) is a bi-weekly feature of three deviants who are well known by the dA community. The founder of this project is Nameda and you can see details here.

SeniorSelections admin
SeniorSelections stands to feature premier artwork from the deviantART community through weekly features from each gallery category. As the anthro gallery and the photography - horror and macabre admin, I will feature one deviation a month in each of those categories. See my guidelines if you want to suggest an artwork.

I bought myself a one-year subscription to :la: They have a sale ending today!

I'll start with Introduction to Digital Painting with Andrew Hou, since there are so many features in Photophop I don't have any idea how to use or what is it for!

Lately, I had the feeling that my art has stopped progressing at some point. And I was often confront to the "I wish I could do this but I don't know how". I hope those classes will help me grow as an artist!

I started watching videos by imaginism lately and they were so informative and well done! It inspired me to buy a subscription! 

Have you ever taken a class (or more) with Schoolism? Which one(s)? How was your experience?

6 Signs You're Too Old for Art + how to overcomeDo you ever feel like you’re too old to get into an artistic career? Like you have no time because of life’s ever gathering responsibilities? It’s never too late to get into art, but there are certain steps and changes to make in life that will help you on your journey. In this video, I talk about how we can make the effort to continue learning about, practicing, and perfecting our artistic craft in order to achieve a level that we’ve always wanted. Take the time to rise a bit earlier every day, never lower our goals, and start now by watching this motivational call to action!

About the project

Praising Life ProjectWelcome to the Praising Life Project

It's really hard for anyone to stay positive all the time. I definitely agree with that.
However, when things go wrong, it's so easy to forget how much you've been blessed. It's amazing that we have the internet, people who care, and hope...
Although there is a lot of bad in this world, there is also beautiful joy and countless things to appreciate. :love:
And that makes me praise life.
The memories, the laughter, the joy, the hugs through hard times.
In this life, we only have one chance! I think one of our life purposes is to spread love throughout this world and leave it in better shape than before we were here. 

It would be much appreciated if you help spread the word! (:+fav: & Comment!)

  PLP Contest-16,000pts of prizes! DEADLINE EXTENDEDHello friends!
Thank you for your patience, as this contest is so long over due. :faint: 
Anyways, due to the completetion of my project's point goals (15,000 points), this contest can finally be launched! 
Prizes- 36 Winners
Contribute Prizes <
Unfortunately, the recent price hike has made it so I cannot give as many premiums. However, commissioned artwork was the second most requested prize, and many artists take point commissions.
As a thank you for your patience, 1,000 points have been added to the prize pool that were not part of the original points goal. This allows for an extra 2 premiums. 
Random for all participants: 
5 prizes of 100 points randomly given among the participants Courtesy of Stygma

Traveling, roaming, painting pictures,
Dancing and floating to music,
Laughing und writing poetry,
Kissing, loving – life.
A tone comes into life.
The sound wants to exist.
A song makes me tremble.
I let it in.
Tasting good old wine,
Sliding above hovering clouds,
Running through the meadows in the morning,
Swimming, playing – living.
A word may stir.
The sentence makes sense.
A verse wants to move.
I write it down.
Enjoying good meals,
Striving to hike to the summits,
Drinking rain, sunbathing,
Hugging children and trees – life.
I have seen something.
Vision wants a shape.
The picture may arise.
I paint it soon.
Reading books, watching movies,
Rising out of gray fug,
Smelling curious at flowers,
Feeling myself free – living.

Flower Sunshine, you make me mine
A flower shining as I'm fine
Seeing past days of cold
I start feeling less of old
Flower Sunshine, you make me fine
To chrochet as I climb
Stitch by stitch an Angel forms
To light the dark of my Storms
Flower Sunshine, as I climb
Up the Hill, as a sign
Remembering days of the old
Reading ways as I'm told
Flower Sunshine, you are a sign
That someday else I'll dine
With the teachers I respect
And teachings I'll have to peck
Flower Sunshine, as I dine
I might think of the biggest pine
Which might stand by, in the night
Waiting for a shot so bright
 Little Man and Inara (PLP Entry) by Amarantheans Praising Life Project - Oh JoyOh Joy
There are many things that bring me joy, but none so much as this;
Writing, in its purest form, poetry
And sometimes prose, for me,
Is the most eternal bliss.
If I had words like grain in granaries in my mind, surely I would find
That writing would happen every day,
In every which way,
And in time, oh how in time it would shine.
There are other things that bring me joy, but none so much as you;
Oh pen, so firmly in my hand,
Bringing thoughts from o’er the land
Straight from my mind to paper, like dew
In the morning waiting to be soaked up by the sun,
My words run over pages white,
Throughout the day or cursed night.
Words outdoing words that are emotions undone.
There are some things that bring me joy, but emotions are rough;
For what is joy, if it is not an emotion fraught
With fear and fire and eternal thought
That surely this pain has been enough?
If joy comes through the dark in a dawn
Then hark the heralds sing,
Upon a new wing
My words will fly
