AC Challenge #98 - Artist Appreciation
What Your Challenge Is
August is Artists Appreciation month so we thought we would challenge you to come up with something for the artist in you! Your challenge for this month is to draw something for Arists Appreciation! Whether that's your character painting, sculpting, or anything that you want to share your appreciate for art! It could be the art itself! So this challenge is just for you, the artist! You are welcome to choose whatever medium you want and whatever Anthro character you wish! It can be in any theme, any style you want! 
Your Art Piece Must Be...

Beyond Boundaries: Contest THEME!Hi everyone,
I hope your team collaborations are going splendidly! You are about halfway through the competition! Congratulations on making it this far.
Today marks the start of Week 5, and it's time to reveal the theme for your contest photomanipulation entry!
The theme is . . .
One Moment in Time
I left this theme vague intentionally. :P
Basically, your deviation can be a snapshot of an historical time period, OR it can represent a moment in someone's own life (now) that really stands out. It can be a good memory or a bad memory, nice or scary. It can be anything you want as long as TIME is represented somehow (figuratively or literally).
Also, in your artist's comments when you submit, please write one sentence describing the moment in time that inspired you to create this deviation.
Rule reminder
As a reminder:
:bulletwhite: You must already be a member of this competition to join this part of the contest.
:bulletwhite: Your coach and your team can
August Arts and Health Challenge: JoyHi everyone,
We are opening a new month on a positive note; the challenge theme for August will be Joy. Living with a health condition (or caring for others who do) does not have to be all doom-and-gloom! What are the things that bring you joy, even amid the darkness?
Joy is essential to life. Researchers have shown that, generally speaking, people who have more joy in their lives tend also to be healthier. Sometimes in life, it is too easy to forget to take a moment and drink in something that makes us joyful. It is medicine in and of itself.
Your entries to this challenge should focus on the theme, "JOY."
Here are the rules:
You can enter as many times as you want, but you must be a member of Arts-and-Health to participate.
The admins and/or guests will choose one winner to receive a three-month subscription-- something large enough to be rewarding but not so large that it is coercive.
We will judge based on, "Which piece moved us the most?"
Creative Craft Challenge: Tsumami KanzashiSuggested by Cayca
Weekly update
Hello everybody! I've got one last submission to this month's challenge to share with you:

Beautiful! Well, I'll see you all next week with a new challenge for September/October!
Previous updates
Another beautiful submission to this challenge, check it out:

Next week will be the last for this challenge, and then we'll have a new challenge for September/October! See you next week!
Hi! We have a few new submissions to the challenge this week, another fun and unusual use of tsumami kanzashi: eyepatches! You all are so creative, I love it!

Also, I noticed a few tsumami kanzashi that were submitted to the gallery folders but not the favorites folder for the Challenge, so here's just a friendly reminder that it doesn't count for the Challenge unless it's in the favorites gallery (but it can be in both, so fear not- you don't have to choose between them!).
Anyways, see you all next week!

(These are just some of them :aww:)

I'm a self taught artist, who has discovered the wonders of digital art in 2007. My software of preference is Adobe Illustrator, but I know my way around in a variety of other softwares. Sometimes I wish I had all the time in the world to dedicate just to my art, because it's my true passion!!! :love: ... My avatar image is my first uploaded painting when I opened my account back in October 2009, I was really proud of it, and will never forget how I felt when I saw the pageviews counter adding up!!! :faint: ... I thrive to never lose that sense of "awe" I had when I first started here, and so far it's intact!!! :iconflyingheartsplz::love::iconflyingheartsplz: Whenever I see a fave or someone gives me a llama, or they write me a comment, it brings me a lot of joy!!! :iconmimose-stock: That is why I would like to take this opportunity to thank in advance all of you who do so much to support me!!! :love: Sometimes life gets in the middle and I'm unable to answer each one of you individually, I will eventually answer, please know it!!! :iconflyingheartsplz::iconsweethugplz::iconflyingheartsplz: So thank you, my dears!!! :iconaawplz: From the bottom of my heart!!!

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda:iconendorell-taelos: nominated by mirz-alt

Alicia is a beautiful and spirited deviant who is known throughout for her selfless generosity. She regularly gifts subscriptions to random deviants, has written numerous feature-centered articles, and keeps a daily feature on her page that offers a chance for one and all to receive more feedback and attention. You can also always count on her to prepare fun and fascinating competitions! As talented as she is supportive, Alicia excels in gorgeous photo-manipulation, and is working on creating a fair amount of her own stories. Many around the community have praised and thanked her alike for her kind and considerate demeanor towards all. Alicia also served as a Community Volunteer on-site for a while, and is still quite active in the forums. She even received the "Sweetest Deviant" award last year, a decision that is opted by community members and administrated by LadyLincoln. If that doesn't speak enough for this wonderful artist's large heart, one conversation with her will be enough to convince you. She truly is an Angel Without Wings, and we are blessed and happy to have her here on deviantART.

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda:icondigithalie: nominated by Dieffi

I want to suggest my dear friend for an Angel Without Wings! Sweet-hearted and kind beyond compare, this lovely lady from Belgium is popular for more than just her breath-taking art; Nathalie is a dearly valued, mindful and loving friend. She gifts her friends not only with loads of heartfelt support in form of favorites and thoughtful comments, but with her very presence in the lives of those who love her and are grateful for her friendship. In turn, she is constantly thankful, and also endlessly generous. Her art speaks for itself, in a phenomenal and ethereal array of gorgeous fractals and other digital mediums. Nathalie creates stunningly beautiful presents for her friends, hosts countless features, and administrates three groups in addition to the countless others she is active in. Last, but certainly not least, she is a Gangsta of Love, meaning that she goes out of her way to spread love and confidence to various artists across the community. This sweet-spirited lady is certainly deserving of the title Angel Without Wings!

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda:icona-wakefield: nominated by Nameda & Sserenita

Amanda is such a very special deviant, whose profile page is dedicated to selflessly showcasing artists, groups, and competitions. It only takes a short time of knowing her to become highly impressed with her caring and friendly nature, shown by her quick responses on each and every comment. She is so passionate about the dA community and helping people and causes in need. Her Project Passion is a celebration of all artists, and she is a frequent granter of wishes at dAWishingWell Her friendliness, the number of her features for other artists, her extreme kindness and gratitude all shine out from this beautiful soul. I immediately saw the Angel qualities the second I first visited her page. Amanda exactly typifies the kind of person that the Angels Without Wings Awards belong to. You can't help but see this in her heart, shown by her interactions with others, and in every single thing that she says and does. A wonderful and truly deserving AWW, Amanda really is generous and considerate, also showing incredible compassion for people who are suffering emotionally. Thank you for the incredibly touching contribution that you make to all those who cross your path Amanda!

Life Improvement

These are articles I found around deviantART.
I believe with all my heart that
they can save a life somehow! :love:
If this helps you in any way,
then I could call this "Mission Accomplished"!!! :iconlainloveplz:

You can't say you can't!As a child I was a bright student, always used to grab among the first 3 positions in my class, teachers used to love me (I was never a teacher's pet though) and my mom and dad (specially dad) supported me with his heart and soul. We always have guidance/influence from others in some way or the other. I was fortunate enough to get them I guess. But there comes a time in your life where you need to move alone and build your own responsibilities, you need to make your own ways, you need make your own decisions and you need to choose the right path.
The world is cruel enough to pull you down every time you want to climb up. But you can't stop there. You have to move on. You can't say you can't!
I have seen a lot of phases in my life in the last 25 years. In deviantART everyone says they like the way I talk to people, the way I treat them and the way I guide them. May be I shouldn't use the word "everyone", perhaps it should be at least most of them says so.
I get a lot of people coming to
Self-Respect... It's important!Self-Respect and Self-Esteem
Self-respect is a sense or awareness of YOUR OWN dignity and integrity. You show your worth to yourself and to others (dignity), and you adhere to moral and ethical principles (integrity). You know you have value within you... You appreciate that value, even on a bad day.
Self-esteem is your emotional evaluation of YOUR OWN WORTH. You have confidence in who you are. You can find success in the things you do. Even when you compare yourself to others, you can see your own unique value as an individual. And you can make your own choices and learn from your mistakes.
"Truth be told, you need to have respect for YOURSELF before you can expect to respect others."
Why Self-Respect & Self-Esteem are Important
Self-respect and self-esteem go hand-in-hand. It is hard to respect yourself if you have a low self-esteem. If you find yours
How to Save a LifeYou can be a Hero and save a life.
I want you to think for second, if you were in an accident or found out your parents had a diseases that left them 6 week to live, what would you do about it?
Would you help them? What if it's your brother or sister that needs help? Would you help them? What if it's your next door neighbour? What if it's someone from a different part of the country? What if it's someone on the other side of the world?
But here is the real question. "If you could receive the help, then why can't you give it?"
Blood donation
Every minute of the day someone somewhere needs blood, everyone need blood sometime in their life, maybe they were In a accident or trying to get through a very risky and difficult operation or even giving birth. They are counting on you to make sure the blood is there when it is needed. Please don't wait for someone else to do this. You are needed.
Only 4% of the eligible population are giving blood, not everyone can give blood, you need to be heal

Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

Super Albino Llama and Thoughts On Life
by ~GermanyXItaly1000, 1 day, 21 hours ago
Journals / Personal
Thanks for the llamas, everyone! I'm so glad that I made it to a super albino llama TT^TT Well, like Mr. Monk, my favourite number is 100, so... I'm happier than ever. Although this is a lie because things in real life have made me happier, and must we remind ourselves that materialistic things will vanish easily.
Oh yes... that brings me to another point.  I've been feeling Confucius-ey lately. With how quickly time is passing by and how close graduation is for me, I've started to feel a bit nostalgic. Do this for me: Think back to a carefree time in your childhood. Think of how little you worried back then about materialistic items, how little you cared for reputation and how much selfless you were.
And then get out there and savour whatever moment of your life is going on.
No matter what we're going through (whether it be a r
Arts and Health: The language of empowermentWhat is empowerment?
Empowerment means different things to different people. I would say that, in general, it means that we are in a position of power such that we have a say in the way things happen in our lives. It means that we can act in ways that will bring the good things we desire into our lives or, if that isn't possible, act in a way that limits the amount of negativity that happens when bad things enter our lives.
It's about being able to make a choice between "I CAN do this" and "I WILL do this."
Contrary to popular belief, the truth is that no one can empower you for you. Empowerment must come from within. The good news is that it doesn't need to require hours of psychotherapy to find it. :XD: It starts simply with language.
Yes, really. How often do you put yourself down? How frequently do you begin sentences with, "This may sound crazy/silly/stupid, but . . ."? Do you realize that every time you use words t
PE: 5 EXCUSES why you just can't do better!5 EXCUSES why you just can't do better!
You really want to, you've worked hard to develop the skills you have and you enjoy every minute of doing what you love. And besides, people say that your artworks are...nice. Cute. Doesn't that count for something? Sure it does, there is no reason to panic and pointlessly push yourself forward. Enjoy your coffee break!
Besides, even if you didn't like the current level as much, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it at the moment. So many unfortunate happenings stand right between you and your dream. Recognizing any of the following?
:bulletred: 1 - You don't have the time
You're right! After all, you are a human being, not a machine, waking up early every morning, heading to school/work, afterwards taking care of the household/kids/your homework, studying, you barely even finish all the tasks during the 24 hours that's been given to everyone.
On the other hand, is there absolutely

Myth: Respect Must be EarnedEveryone goes blind...
Yes, just like the age-old adage goes, "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind." Think about it: if you never give respect but expect to receive it, and every other person on the planet thinks the same thing, who is ever going to be respected? If your default setting is to treat me with disrespect or to simply ignore me until I impress you enough to take notice of me, you really aren't worth my time. And I would think that if someone treated you in the same way that they would not be worth your time either. Our default setting should always be to respect first. Even if you don't think all people deserve respect like I do, you still should understand that stating that YOU don't have to earn respect but everyone else does is HYPOCRITICAL and SELFISH.
Respect has no charge associated with it. There are no tricks that one must perform to get respect. It isn't magical. It isn't a fairy tale. It does not require a remote co
Finding Freedom with FriendsWhat Makes a Great Internet Friend?
A short while ago, I set up a poll asking deviants what they felt made good online friends. You can check out the poll here. Everyone had great advice and ideas on internet friendships.

  Like many of you, I was shocked and devastated about the tragic suicides that took place in Fall 2010 and again this Fall 2011. These bright young students were constantly picked on and bullied severely because they were gay or perceived as gay. I know some of you who read this are probably saying right now, "Oh, you know how kids are, they can be so cruel, kids are going to bully regardless". Those who have said it or are even thinking those words as I am speaking, you know who you are. I am letting you know how bad this hurts me as a student who once was looking for the support she never got when she was bullied and harassed in middle school. But I'm getting way off topic.
