I wasn't able to make the feature last week, so this one counts for two weeks. Enjoy.

RECOGNIZING EXCELLENCE VOL 8Hello, everyone!
RECOGNIZING EXCELLENCE is a weekly feature usually published by the wonderful `JamminJo. She writes it to recognize one artist that stands out within our deviantART community. The deviant she selects must be outstanding and caring about others in the community, and the community itself!
Jo believes it's important to recognize outstanding deviants for their time and dedication. We also believe it's important and we think `JamminJo meets the description. Therefore we are posting a special holiday edition of RECOGNIZING EXCELLENCE in order to recognize Jo herself!
RECOGNIZING EXCELLENCE VOL 8
Dedicated to `JamminJo
`JamminJo was so kind when I first met her on DeviantArt. Not only is she a helpful, generous, warm-hearted deviant, but she has a lovely gallery! She has only been on DeviantArt for a year and a half and has such an impact on other devian

Colours Vol. Three:iconwildrune11: Hello, and welcome to the third volume of Colours! I hope you enjoy this article. Please consider adding it to your to support the artists featured and the time I spent compiling it.
This time, I'd like to ask the readers a question. What do you think of editing photography? Is it something all photographers should try? Or is it something that should only be used in moderation, or never done? Do you think editing is a part of the art of photography? Or is it completely different and unrelated? Please leave your thoughts in a comment! I will include your opinions in my next article. If you do not wish for your opinion to be shared (or if you'd like to be anonymous), please say so in your comment.

What is %projecteducate?
%projecteducate is an education project here on deviantART, conceived back in mid-late 2007 by `MistressWit. She made the first plans towards the beginning of the group. However, life got very busy for her - so she couldn't visit deviantART very often. Six months later, `shell4art followed her plans and officially launched %projecteducate!  Today, %projecteducate is one of deviantART's official projects. It is currently being overseen by the wonderful ^Kaz-D.
%projecteducate works by assigning a week to a particular gallery - such as Photography, Anthro, Vector, and so forth. Some or all of the Community Volunteers responsi

With so much loveHello everyone! I'd like to share a very important feature that is very close to my heart
I started this collection last year I think but due to uncertain circumstances, I was not able to update the collection on a regular basis, which led me to the hiatus for the collection. But a few months back, I think earlier this year, I saw an artwork that made me think that I should go back and make my collection grow.
DeviantArt, being the world's largest online art community, is definitely a place where you can see lots of amazing artworks. You can see how each one grows from being a seedling into a full grown artist. In case you missed, this is a personal journal that I shared months ago: A Whirlpool of Experiences and Humble Beginnings. This is a personal sharing on how DeviantART has helped me to where I am now as a person and as an artist.

#Through-a-Lens is wonderful.

Spotlight Selections from Featured:
Not So Traditional Tuesdays #8The things that make one piece of art great applies, for the most part, to other genres. A painter can learn how light and shadow fall from photography, photo-manipulators can learn about composition from a great
Manga drawing, and literature can give you the inspiration to try something new or take your work to the next step. You may never try all art forms you see! You can however take what you learn from them and
incorporate that into your own work. It could be the difference between stagnating and that breakthrough every artist wants to find! Now on with the show!
