Things have gotten pretty hectic my way. So please excuse for not answering, etc.
Hope things are going better for you.
Some thoughts on DA's 11th anniversayI feel nothing. Definitely not joy.
I enjoy the friends I have met here. I like hearing the wonderful stories people tell of the DA community coming together for them in crisis,etc.
The DD's and prizes people have received.
Yet for all the talk of how DA loves you (from CEO to staff with some exceptions) it seems like empty words to me.
So excuse me if I don't jump up and down with joy.

$spyed answered my question and iScribbleHello:
Hope your on your way to having a good weekend and if not hope it gets better.
In my last journal I ranted on why doesn't DA have a way to publish books like Blurb = http://www.blurb.com/
I got an answer:
On March 14, 2011, deviants from around the world participated in a special featured chat with deviantART's CEO (aka) Angelo Sotira ($spyed)
You can read the full transcript of what else people asked here = http://news.deviantart.com/article/146653/
"*Rickbw1: Hello Angelo. Will DA be adding in the shops a way to create books for art collections, literature, etc like Blurb, and if so when? And if not why?
$spyed: We'd likely partner with a company like Blurb, they're amazing, but first we need to change the submission process to add some procedures for how we integrate with such companies. That is stuff we're looking at and developing against right now, so, absolutely! "
See what happens.
In other news I came across this site called iscri

The Hunt For Gollum - LOTR PrequelThere's a decent fan made movie The Hunt For Gollum - LOTR Prequel = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9H09xnhlCQU
"dramatising Aragorn & Gandalf's long search for Gollum. This 40 minute film, made by fans for fans is based on the appendices of LOTR and was painstakingly shot on a low budget as a homage to Peter Jackson's trilogy and the writing of J.R.R. Tolkien.
Costing less than $5,000 to make, with a team of volunteers."
If your LOTR fan it just might interest you.

PE: How to Make Pixel CloudsHow to Make Pixel Clouds
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to make pixel clouds. I have two different types of clouds I use depending on the piece; semi-realistic, and cartoon style. I will be showing you both today!
Let us start!
The semi realistic style can be done two ways, depending on if you are limiting colors or not.
First, I'm going to show you the way for if you do not care how many colors you use.
First you will pull out your pencil brush, as you would normally do when making pixel art, and set the color to white. After that, set the opacity to around 10%-20%.
Randomly brush side to side with the pencil, and then overlap some lines randomly as well.
Keep doing that until the cloud if about as big as you need it; it should look something like this.c:

You are an amazing artist and one of my best friends on Da. You were one of the first people I talked to when I joined Da, back then you were an inspiration but now you help me continue to draw. Your drawings are always beautiful and they each have something special in them thats stands out from the rest. I hope you continue to do what you're doing and remember, if your feeling sad or hurt inside you can always talk. <3
There's a very special deviant everyone should know. HiddenLeafDragon is a good friend of mine, always has been and always will be. He's really funny, very sweet, and super nice He's one of those rare cool people with great skill and talent, and I think everyone should check out his page, because he's really worth the time.
Another deviant who seems to be a little sad lately is Toetag001 She doesn't use her account much anymore, but she's really in need of a cheer-up. She doesn't like attention, but she deserves it! She's a sweetheart and I

Introducing, the new place for RAF deviants(icon pending )
We now have a group! . Instead of being featured on my profile, your feature will be posted through the group. The concept is still the same, you just send suggestions to the group with all the information filled out (look below for more details). I will then create a journal featuring your friend, that will be up for a full week! The journal will feature five recommended friends. It will also include a tidbit about the recommended friend, including why you should check them out. Once a month, all of the suggesters will be featured in an epic roundup journal.

Who Reads dA Lit? A MissionHello deviantART lit community. I have a mission for you. I would like to create an infographic of the readers and writers on deviantART as well as provide a resource for helping the writers of deviantART understand their audience: who they are, what they like, what they want, and their opinions on dA lit. To do so, I have created an easy to complete survey that can be completed anonymously and can be found here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1FvpHEYCrYV2V1YBmogZ4DZoKeEHXlJB-qGRyDa-BLGc/viewform?usp=send_form
Who Reads dA Lit?
The results will be shared in about a month's time on May 18 as raw data for the community to analyze themselves. In the meantime, I would like to ask if you could complete the survey and spread the word to other deviantART members. It is anonymous.
Thank you for your time,
