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.

Time and Tide

Tue May 8, 2018, 8:27 PM

Profile | Gallery | Inbox

So little time when tide is turning into a tsunami. It's how I feel about my life right now. Work is insane, to the point I don't have the energy for anything else than eat, sleep and watch Netflix when I'm home. And when I think I'm finally gonna do some art at last, I realize that I have to fill my taxes, bring the car to the garage to change the tires and clean the yard since the snow finally decided to melt away. (No, I don't have a better half to help me. It's me, myself and my alternate personalities!)

Not counting the mess the Windows 10 upgrades did to ALL my drawing software! At least, the last time I checked, Photoshop CC 2018 was working again! But I've spent quite some time trying to find a fix!

So yeah, my group work is minimal these days! My community work is in hibernation. From time to time, somebody wake the bear for a question about group submissions or reporting art thieves. It's OK! I'm always happy to help! :D

If you are my friend and I forgot your birthday, I'm sorry! These days, I don't even think of checking those in my notifications! (I know there are at least 3 important ones in May that I'll try not to forget! :giggle:)

I will have my 4 week vacation in July to finally get my life back! After I repainted the house (outside)...

AltairSky, I'm not forgetting you! Quite the contrary! If your ears are ringing, it's me thinking of you and the art I must do for you! I've started, tried that new technique I've learned from my Schoolism class, and ruined it, of course! I'm not ready for greatness! LOL! I do want to give you a comic-style version (because I'm not ready to give up on the more refined and difficult version) before the end of the month! (Poking AFC-FAX-Exchange for the info).

This part is about ARPG (Evoloons and Bagbeans/Griffia)

I need to find time to work on my own art too! For Evoloon, I need to work on my references for the summer event 2018! And the event art, of course. If you are wondering if the event will be big this year, yes, it will be! And fun too! (Maybe a little less fun for the mods! :giggle:)

I want so much to draw my griffians! I still haven't done any trials with my main ones (so I can't participate in many events since the rules have changed and the identity trial is mandatory). I want to design my version of Haze. I also acquired a modmonster and an ursaraptor (yay!). So much to do! So little time!

I hope you guys are fine and you can suggest good stuff to watch on Netflix! I watch mostly horror, sci-fi, fantasy and animes, but get off the beaten path from time to time.

Angels Without Wings May 2018

Journal Entry: Sat May 5, 2018, 8:45 PM

Who Are Angels Without Wings?

They Are Those Fellow Deviants:

~ Who act Unselfishly and are Humble by Nature
~ Who more or less Regularly Feature Other Deviants
~ Who Willingly Offer Tips, Hints and Helpful Comments
~ Who Answer a Fair Amount of the Comments They Receive
~ Who Give Kind and/or Uplifting Words When and Where it is Needed
~ Who Feature and Promote Projects, as well as Contests and Challenges
~ Encourage or Otherwise Assist Deviants Who Need Support/Help
~ Who Give Fair and Helpful Critiques (whether official or not)
~ As Well As Doing Whatever Else is Helpful, Kind and Supportive

Each Edition of Angels Without Wings will Honor Three (3) Very Special Deviants with a Pair of Wings in a Feature Journal by WDWParksGal and her Gangstas of love (in alphabetical order):

The Angels Without Wings for May 2018

Suggested by Andorada and WDWParksGal

Amarantheans has made quite an impact with her work, encouraging collaborations between literature and visual arts. She is such a sweety in general!

Amarantheans is an admin of several groups, including CollaborativeMinds, which goes well with her yearly contest of a collaboration of a literature artist and a visual artist called “Awareness of the Arts”. If there are Deviants who cannot find a collaborator then she will make sure to match a pair!

TommyGK, an honored receiver of the Deviousness Award, has a strong, positive and inspiring impact in his corner of the Deviant World, bridging a large range of ages. His work with charity collaborations is just sweet and shows his kindness towards others.

priteeboy is part of a team of Deviants who are working hard to revive space-inspired types of art, as wells photomanips in general. He is a team player, friendly, playful, smart and efficient.
