January starts a new month and a NEW YEAR! Happy 2013 everyone! Lots of people make resolutions at the beginning of the new year to help them on their way to becoming a better person in so many ways! Some people want to be kinder, thinner, healthier, funner, happier, richer and more! What kinds of New Year Resolutions have you made? We want to know!
Coming up 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!). Starting on Feb 1st, you can check out different features such as 14 kinds of Chocolates, 14 Different Smiles, 14 Ways to say I Love You, and more! And 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 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!
James--Steele James--Steele is one of the most amazing deviants you can ever hope to meet! While only on deviantART for 4 months so far, James has dedicated his time to helping other people on deviantART! From features to gifts to granting wishes to leaving behind supportive comments and advice, James has been a leader that stands out. Not only have his great deeds touched hundreds of people here at the Well, James has managed to nurture deviants in many groups to include other very large and active groups like DevNews, deviantARTcommunity and deviantHEART! Making wishes come true is but one small part of all he does on deviantART.
Overdose on Love by Meranda92 is an interesting photographic piece that makes the viewer think. On one hand, it tells a sad tale of forgotten or painful love. On the other hand, it gives hope that love is within our grasp. The coloration and addition of grain to the photo seems to edge towards the darker of the two tales, but no one will ever really know until they look and listen.
Corset by sophiaazhou is a unique piece that is not unique to our culture. The photograph speaks volumes about how we view ourselves and what we want of ourselves. It shows what is attainable to so many yet so difficult for many more. This deviation leaves you with more questions than answers, especially in the new year. Have you ever resolved to break free of the bonds or have you instead wished to be wrapped up by them, becoming the picture-perfect person you think everyone else is?
iLantiis, "I resolve to always look at the positive side this year, even when it is hard to find. I will be laurenlorenz's and KobayashiHisa's buddy too as we all strive to be more positive! I also resolve to do one digital work each month this year, and at least three of those months will NOT be my comfortable inside-the-box Sailor Moon fanart. It is time to spread my wings and try some new things!"

Silverarte, "My resolution is actually to do a good amount more work on improving my art, writing and doing things for others.

14 days of features? Awesome!
my resolution: 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!
"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."
Ok, I would LOVE to nominate =Xcalibur86 for seniority, she 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!
As for my personal resolution ... ... I want 2013 to be memorable! I want to get more involved on DA and spread all the love I can! ... Getting into my favorite dress won't hurt either, you know?
Yes! AND the media ... Have you noticed when you watch TV, when they put the commercials ... how they TORTURE us? ... Look at it! ... One commercial about a gigantic plate full of food! ... then another one with a bikini model telling you that she lost 300 lbs. on a "miraculous" diet thing ... ... then the food again! ... then the model
My resolution is to get up and help the community more! I also want to make my Project: Project ATLASFeature a success and get exposure for deviants in dire need! I also want to catch at least ONE art thief and report them! I also want to work harder in my Backgrounds and shading, and post more art~
