Valentine Feature Ten

Sat Feb 4, 2012, 12:07 AM


A feature meme has been going around DA.  The first people to comment here will be featured.  They, in turn should each do their own feature journal, with the first person they feature be whomever they got the meme from.  So, in my feature, I shall feature the person I got the meme from, and she will be featuring me in her list.  The next 9 people to comment will each be added to my list and get their own feature.

For a twist on mine, I've decided to do a Valentine theme and as an article.  I have a love for skinning articles, so it is a pleasure to do.

UPDATE: All slots are full

I now have my ten, but please, feel free to start your own meme journal you can change up the rules a bit if you want to.  Or check the people who joined to see if they started their meme yet.  I hope everyone has found my feature series inspiring and fun.

First Feature TribalSpiderArts

Sarah Sertic is a talented photographer from the DC area.  She recently joined the Workhouse Lorton Art Center, with her own studio space.  She has a wide array of photography, from fetish model to urban decay and landscape scenery.  She has a keen eye for color, composition and visual appeal.

I met Sarah via a mutual friend, model Vasara Noxxul.  Though we have never met in person, we have quickly become friends.  I had seen portraits of my friend taken by Sarah for years before I ever spoke to her.  I had already admired her work as an artist.  I was quite pleased to find her on DeviantART.  I am always excited to find artists within my social network who are on DeviantART as well.

Sarah Sertic

In Love - by Sarah Sertic

Two Hyacinth Macaws, their caress looks like a heart in this tender moment.  The beautiful pair captured superbly.

She has a love for animals, which is evident in her beautiful photography.  Most notably, her amazing photo of a baby sea turtle.  She received a Daily Deviation honor for that precious image.  Please take a moment to enjoy her gallery, leave a comment, follow her work, and perhaps, make a new friend.

:iconthe--last--hope: bradleysays
The--Last--Hope, aka Bradley has quickly become a friend of mine on DeviantART.  He's very approachable and helpful.  And his enthusiam for all things DA is contagious.  He has become a prominent member when it comes to DeviantART Related.  He's very active in the community, notably with his continuing series, "A Week in DA Related".  Currently on it's 28th article.

Valentines #3:iconsilverpixigirl: SilverPixiGirl
It is my pleasure to introduce Ms. Pixi, she is the third to comment on my feature meme (see link on the right to participate and rules).  Which gives me a lot of joy to present her, as she has become a friend on DeviantART.  Her constant words of encouragement and extension of friendship has really brought me into the DA modding community.


CSS Anyone?
As I said, she and I met via mutual groups we particpate in.  I can't remember how the ice was broken, it seemed like we became instant friends.  I'm sure we've hijacked a number of threads with our back and forth rapport.  Sorry!  hahaha.  So, let me show you some of her skins!
Be sure to look at her group journalcss

A little about Sara
I've bumped into Sara several times via our group circles.  Journal skinning has really connected me with the community on DA and it's great to see so many varied artists with an interest in coding and design.  I know very little about her other than she is from Italy.  But exploring her gallery today, I find a wonderful assortment of abstract and conceptual photography.

First I would like to highlight a helpful resource she has created.  An HTML guide for DeviantART which is e
Valentine VFeature Meme number 5 of 10
  To participate, please check the main article on the right.  Even if you do not make it in on this series, you can start up your own.  (or comment on the people who have started them off of me, I'll collect their links as I get them on the main article).  Which Winter (yes, her name is Winter!!! :love:) has already posted hers: http://fav.me/d4oouoo Thank you for jumping the gun and featuring me, and with one of my own skins! :hooray:
:iconblissful-creations: Blissful-Creations

One thing to know about Winter, above all else is her amazingly honest and open heart.  She bares it brazenly, screaming "This is me!".  She is so full of love and earnest emotion, someone who is very true to herself and all those who will accept her for who she is.  Another thing that may or may not offend people,
Sixth ValentineThank you everyone who is following this series for all your great comments and faving.  I'm glad you're enjoying the features.  I am now on the sixth one, and still have some slots available.  If you would like to be featured, please take a look at the first article (on the right) and add a comment.
After the series is finished, I may be releasing this as an installable skin.  Be forewarned, for it to work to it's fullest extent, it is very HTML heavy.  Though it will be usable for plain entry, to get all the layouts to work, it requires HTML knowledge.  I spend about an hour or so writing each of these articles.  (maybe longer, not really timing myself)
:iconarchernanoha: lorreinegeralde

Lorenna is an emoticonist and writer and miscellaneous artist from Malaysia.  I've bumped into her several times through DA related circles, though we
Valentine's Seventh:iconjamminjo: JamminJo Feature #7


JoAnn is a photographer and an instant friend.
We met via DevNews group where she is a major contributor to the article collections.  One thing immediately caught my eye.  Right under her profile name in her tag line "Deaf Photographer".  On DeviantART, everyone has a certain level of internet anonymity.  We're all the same, we don't notice things like visual or hearing impairments like you would if we met face to face.  I studied American Sign Language in high school to better communicate with a friend.  I learned a lot about the culture, it gave me better understanding of my friend, more than just being able to talk to her.
I admire that JoAnn has boldly removed that anonymous barrier, being deaf is not a handicap, it is a part of who she is and has shaped how
Eighth Valentine:iconm-intimacy: GemmaSuen
Gemma is a multi-talented artist and a quirky fun deviant I've enjoyed a lengthy rapport with.  I'm not sure how long we've been watching each other's works.  She always brings a smile to my face when she comments on my work.  And I'm always curious to see what comes next from her gallery.  It is varied, from insightful and inspiring to silly and sexy, or other times it might just surprise you.




And in between
Traditional and Digital, Fantasy and Reality

She is working on game design, some interesting stuff.  She has a number of game concept artworks and characters in her gallery.  Alongside her digital paintings and tradit
Ninth ValentineI'll be posting 9 & 10 today.
Yesterday I spent most my time in the eCSSercise chat event.  So didn't get to posting my current feature.  But I did get some excellent feedback on this skin which will help in getting it ready for Valentine's release.  ginkgografix, what do you think about the text-shadow now?  For now, I present to you...
:iconjenrox94: jenrox94

Artist | Student | Photography
I actually don't really know Jen at all, but first impressions are supposed to mean a lot right?  My first impression is that she rocks!  It says so in her name, besides, she has a chronic case of sarcasm of the mouth, which I can entirely relate to..
Her interests are in writing and photography.  There aren't many writings in her gallery, but she has "Author" as her first description of what type of artist she is.  And wow, this poem

:iconphlum: Phlum
Sorry to Phlum for being so late with this.  I blame Dungeon Defenders!  This is my final Valentine feature for the series.  I hope everyone has enjoyed the articles.  I really enjoyed writing them and having a real in depth look at some of my watchers/DA friends galleries.  I feel like I've gotten to know you all a little bit better.


I've seen Tim around through my daRelated circles.  He's an emoticonist and we share a lot of DA friends.  I'm new to making emotes myself.  I know many people may think emotes are simple or easy, but they are not.  Working on a small canvas with a limited palette is no simple task.  And doing it well so the pixels translate into the idea you are trying to convey is talent.  A look

No problem. It is one of my more advanced use skins, requires HTML for the extra features, but still looks nice for more plain use. It's designed as an article skin, for featuring and writing in depth articles.
