The NomsGet your fill!
The Special in February
February is all about sharing the love and giving back! deviantHEART, a group we are affiliated with whose goal is to "Promote Positivity," is hosting an event, "14 Days of Features" (courtesy of one of their amazing admins, Astrikos!). On Day 14 (Valentine's Day), there will be a huge feature on what YOU think of LOVE! No need to join the group. No need to watch the group. If you want to participate, simply note Astrikos with your thoughts on love or love-related deviations. Or, you can comment on the February Noms that come out on the 1st with your thoughts, and the Well will send them to deviantHEART. Get lovey-dovey! Get featured! Be happy!
Savaliste has been one of the most helpful deviants I've had the pleasure to come across here on DA ... Always ready to extend a helping hand to anyone who needs it without hesitation! She encourages people in a very positive way, and I personally admire people like that! ... She's been on DA for 6 years already, so she's been doing that for quite some time! ... She would definitely deserve to have that tic on her username! ... Those who haven't met her yet, I encourage you to go say hello to her! She's going to have a baby soon! ... So I'm sure she'll welcome all the love you'll can her! ... Her work is AMAZING! You're going to love her gallery too!
Plush Bunnies Family Tree by BUDDYFORME is a rainbow of color and creativity wrapped up in a cute, adorable, funny and frisky portrait of bunnies! These silly bunnies are all over each other and apparently can't sit still, but BUDDYFORME loves them anyway. You will too! Check in with BUDDYFORME and the Plush Bunnies, drop a fave and some love, and if you love it as much as the rest of us, suggest this colorful family feature as a DD!
DaFight... by SrGrafo is a splash of color with a slinky fantasy character gracing your eyes with some spunk and spontaneity. The burst of color and excellent coloring are both fresh and fun in this great piece! Go check it out, and if you find it as eye-catching as we do, grab a fave and send in a DD suggestion!
iLantiis, "Love is living in the moment and enjoying every minute of it!"
faerismoka, "Love is so complicated, you don't know if you hate or love someone anymore. To hate is to love, right?"
of-the-skies, "Love is always more or less unconditional; you may get mad at someone for something little but eventually you'll forgive them."
mormonbookworm, "Love is seeing more good than bad in people, and being willing to encourage the good."
KobayashiHisa, "Love is never letting go no matter how angry he makes you!"
PizzaPotatoNBacon, "Love is the most complicated thing there is. Sometimes it breaks you, and sometimes it fixes you. Sometimes it's the worst thing that's happened, sometime's it's the best thing you've ever done. Sometimes love is when you love them for who they are, and sometimes love is when you just love them. It's extremely complex, plus you never know when it hits you. Oh, and love is pizza. Yes, pizza is everything."
A Few Final Resolutions
SkyCuboid, "To become a better person, in short a better human.. to my family, friends and relatives. To critique over 1,000 pieces of art before the next year.. And to help out as many deviants as I can this year."
of-the-skies, "My resolution is to try to get more involved in the dA community!"
ArtByCher, "My resolution for 2013 is to spend more time painting. And more time of dA, of course."
faerismoka, "I resolve to start being more active in the dA community-I absolutely love having a premium membership; it's easier to find deviants to watch, it's easier to savor an art's beauty and it's more convenient to feature my adored deviants!"
Epilepsy-Awareness is a wonderful group that promotes awareness of one of the world's most common disorders. About 1 in 200,00 are diagnosed with epilepsy. In fact, a lot of users on DeviantArt have been diagnosed with epilepsy. Epilepsy is not funny. It is certainly not comfortable and it is fatal. In this group, you can find art that promotes awareness, art that can support those with this condition, and the like. There's also a Seizure First Aid right over here! Whether you are inflicted, or if your loved ones are, or if you support those with Epilepsy, or even just want to know more, feel free to join! Just make sure your avatar does not have seizure-inducing animation that can kill.

Have a new project? Tell us a little about it in the comments and leave a link!
To get yourself added or to add someone you know, simply comment on this blog. Comments will be reviewed by our panel and added as space is available every Tuesday. You must include a short write-up of who and why they should be a Senior or what deviation and why you think it is DD-worthy. The better your write-up, the more likely someone will be inspired to help you in your goal. And YES, you can include a write-up about you or one of your own deviations.
