Give Thanks... deviantART. Friends. Features.

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 22, 2011, 10:03 PM
Edit: Share with your friends on Twitter as well! twitter.com/#!/ZevImages/statu…

I know that many deviants have had a rough past year. I know I have. For some, it was the economy, for some changes in their families and loved ones, and I know for some it has even been on deviantART. We have all had struggles, but this time of year, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, is as good a time as any to thank people for what we DO have. 

In this world of little, we all have something we hold dear to our hearts. Now is the time to say thanks. 

So, what I would like to invite everyone to do is in the next 48 hours (Today + Thanksgiving), fave this journal to show your support, then comment with 4 things you are thankful for:

1 thing on deviantART you are thankful for
1 thing with your family, loved ones, friends, etc. you are thankful for 
1 thing in your life you are thankful for
1 piece of art you, or a fellow deviant created that you are thankful for

For every deviant that faves and comments, I will post one piece of art from either your gallery, or from another randomly selected deviants' gallery, in an upcoming "Thanks" Journal. 

That will be my way of thanking all of you, for the amazing community, the amazing family, and such an amazing place for me to share my art and joy with all of you. 

In order for me to keep my sanity, I reserve the right to cap the feature if this gets popular, BUT I invite you all to do the same for your watchers! Simply link them back here, and have them comment as well, and offer to do the same giving of thanks through art! 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and remember I am thankful for you
Best,



deviously yours,
TimberClipse

1. I'm really thankful for all the support I've gotten on deviantart for my drawings...even if at first my wolves looked more like horses with spaghetti legs :XD:

2. I'm thankful that my parents allow me some privileges (not a huge amount, but some), such as having a bunch of my friends over until midnight :)

3. This is probably going to sound really sappy and really cliche, but I'm thankful for my boyfriend, *Dyiad, because he's epic :meow:

4. I'm thankful for [link] by ~Silvestrate (she used to be Gale-Okami but switched accounts) because she and *Xanioz were my first friends on dA, and this was one of the first fan art pieces that anyone did of my characters :la:

I am thankful for
:bulletred:all the opportunities and experiences I've been exposed to since being on deviantART. Its been an integral part of my life and I wouldn't be anywhere without all the people I've had the pleasure to meet and learn from. There's not a thing I would change
:bulletred: The fact that my parents sacrifice so much for me to be where I am in life, and knowing that I can count on them when I need them most; that is most important to me.
:bulletred: I am thankful that I am alive and well..no physical handicaps, no health issues that are of grave concern. I am truly grateful for my health.
:bulletred:I looked through my faves over and over and I really could not choose one! They were all too amazing. But I'll go with this for now as it as absolutely mesmerizing and captivating [link] :clap:

:bulletpurple: I'm most appreciative of the wonderful people that came into my life when I came back to devArt and how they've encouraged me to keep working and even helped me through emotional issues even though most of them do not know me in person.

:bullestpurple: My family has been a huge support backbone for me and when I was in the darkest parts of my life, they were always there even when I wouldn't talk about it and thought they didn't know.

:bulletpurple: My dad... hands down. I grew up with a good-for-nothing excuse of a sperm-bank for a "father" that abused my siblings, my mom, and me. After a long hard fight to get out of it, this man who barely knew us, loved us enough to adopt all four of us as his own children even after he and my mom married. That wasn't enough... he wanted us to call him dad and he wanted to show us that there was something good that went by that title out there and that's the greatest gift I've ever been given... a man that picked us, as lost and messed up as we were, to be his children.

:bulletpurple: Haha well the piece I'm thankful for is the as-realistic-as-I-could-make-it penis drawing I did in Kindergarten. I was fascinated by human anatomy and wanted to be a doctor but that was when I started drawing and I never looked back. Really embarrassed my mom at the parent-teacher conference but we all start somewhere so it was totally worth it. XD

One thing on dA
I'm thankful that I've been able to grow as an artist. I'm nowhere near perfect, or even good for that matter, but I've been able to grow from an absolutely terrible artist to a slightly less terrible one. I'm thankful that this place has given me that opportunity to be surrounded by artists who are leagues better in every way so I can learn from their mistakes as well.

One thing with family/friends/etc
I'm thankful that I've found a group of friends who supports me and is willing to take the extra step to say they'll be there in my time of need. It's hard to find people these days who say they really care, and when you do you feel glad that they even want to be your friend.

One thing in my life.
I'm thankful that I've been given the opportunity to go to college when so many other people aren't able to. I've got a long way to go in my schooling, and hopefully it all works out for the best in time, but I can't give up at this point.

One piece of art.
I don't know how I can say that I'm thankful for a piece of art, unless it's my capstone project. I'm thankful that I'm nearing the end of this part of my college journey, but I need to get this project done and out the door. Once it is, I'll be thankful that it's done.

Awesome idea :3
I am thankful for...
--The inspiration I get from dA,be it for writing or drawing things,since I see so many great works in here that make me want to be better and better.
--The support that my friends and family alike give to whatever I do,specially for the book I'm currently writing.I'd have stopped writing Seventh Core long ago if no one of them thought it was a great idea.
--Aside from being alive,I guess it's my persistence over everything.Most of the things I succeed on happen because I hardly ever give up.
--There are so many...! But I think that the best one I can mention is [link] . It was a time one of my best friends was really bad emotionally,and while I couldn't do much apart from trying to cheer him up with words,my other friend was able to draw this to make him feel better. I'm not only thankful for the piece,but I'm thankful that she did it and that my other friend got better <3

I don't celebrate Thanksgiving because it's not a tradition in my country,but I sure try to be thankful for everything that happens in my life,you may never know if you'll need something that you didn't expect to need sooner or later...

3) I'm thankful for all the inspiration and hope the world has. There are idiots who try unconciously to make the world worse through war and such, but eventually, everything good shows through. That, and Vimto.
4) [link] because it's given me ideas about my own art, as, seeing it, I realised that you can show your inspirations in art in an obvious way, but still making it your own, too. Plus, it's just so adorable that it's hard not to love :XD:

Ponies.

Look, the world is a terrible place. Everything else but those confounded farm-animals let me down this year. Sometimes all of the things you try to find comfort in aren't there for you, or can't help. If you can find any shred of happiness, no matter how trivial it may seem, you have to hold onto it for dear life.

You wouldn't think fan-art could matter a whole lot, but it's probably why I haven't snapped and gone to a bell-tower with a loaded rifle by now.

One thing in my life that I am thankful for is my amazing boyfriend, Ray. I love him more dearly than anything in this world~ <3

A piece of art that I am thankful for in my gallery is my piece, "Sunyshore - Pokebattle." It has a very nice meaning to me, and it is the piece I am most proud of involving my anatomy skills.

I am also thankful for everyone on this website who has posted on this journal for sharing their thanks with us and with God.

I am thankful for the love and support of all my watchers- they mean the world to me, and I probably wouldn't still be here without them.

I am thankful for my family, the fact my Father and sister are still alive and we are all together.

I am thankful for my life in general. I know I should not be alive according to the doctors, but the fact I am still surprises me everyday. While I may not appreciate it every day, I have days where I am so grateful to be alive.

I am thankful for every piece my followers have written for/with me- they've all touched me and I look back on them on hard days.

4. I hate to be thankful for my own artwork, but River Cats, my anthro fiction novel, really has changed that friendship with Kain and given it new dimension and meaning. Once upon a time I used to HATE writing. Now I love it.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

This is such a great idea.

1. On deviantART, I am so thankful that this website provides a fun setting for people to share what really expresses themselves. I can't imagine what people who live in countries who don't allow them to express themselves must feel like. This website has had a wonderful impact on my life, for that reason alone; I have interacted with so many new people.
2. As for my family and friends, I am so thankful that I HAVE them. I have my family and my friends to support me and provide fun for my life. Without them, I would literally be nothing. Thank you, wherever yall are :heart:
3. In my life, I am thankful for my music, and my personality. I LOVE who I am, and wouldn't want to change it one bit. As for my music, there is another thing I would be nothing without.
4. One deviation I'm thankful for, is, not to be a kiss-up, this journal. It is so refreshing to know that Thanksgiving and its general values and principles have not yet been forgotten, and this journal ensures their survival for a longer time. Thank YOU. :dalove:

What a beautiful journal :meow: This is a great idea! (Even though we don't celebrate thanksgiving here :shrug:) :D

Now for the questions;
1. I am thankful for all of the wonderful people on dA who I have met (or are yet to meet) as you have all shown me how to improve, inspired me & challenged me to create better art! Everyone has also helped me realise that I can make my dreams come true :heart:
2. I am thankful for having my family & friend around me, they are the most important to me and I don't know what I'd do without them. (Including my extended in-laws ;P) :heart:
3. One thing in my life I am thankful for... to be able to share my life with all these wonderful people around me & to create the art that I do!
4. I am thankful for being able to create [link] as this piece has shown me so much about myself & I have given it to my (almost) mother-in-law as it reminds me of her in every way. Thanks for helping me create this!

:heart: Happy Turkey Day everyone ;)

1 thing with your family, loved ones, friends, etc. you are thankful for: I'm thankful for the support of my family and friends, especially since I've changed my life plans numerous times over the past few years.

1 thing in your life you are thankful for: I'm thankful for all that I have, and the fact that I can share what I have as well as my time with others.

1 piece of art you, or a fellow deviant created that you are thankful for: I'm thankful for my friend's drawing of a character I made up ( [link] ) because she gives that character a physical being that I could never give to her.

:bulletred:I am thankful for all the tutorials on Devinatart. There's no way I would have improved and learned so much so fast if it wasn't for those awesome deviants that go and make a journal to help teach others. :la:

:bulletorange:In my family I'm thankful that my dad is still alive. It was a bit of a rough year and we don't know how much longer he'll be around. Since he still is it's definite reason to give thanks. :meow:

:bulletyellow:My friends are something I'm extremely for in my life. If I didn't have them I would never get through all the hard times. I'm so glad they're there for me and that I can be their for them. :heart:

:bulletgreen:I'm thankful for all the art *WingedGenesis5 has made for me. Out of all of them I really love this line art she made- [link] It's amazing and it always inspires me to keep working so someday I can make such pretty art. :eager:

An articulately positive journal, and veritable, esp in these trying times.


1. dA has been an immense blessing to me, as it opened the door to meeting friends, sharing relationships and artwork, and being tutored and supported by the very sterling people here.
2.Though this year much of the family was separated, I am grateful we are all healthy and sound, and the love we share.
3. The ability to live, to love others, to aid others, encourage others, to live in our beliefs.
4.This was a resplendent gift my dA spirit sister had create for me as a Christmas gift, it holds such a weighty meaning for me: [link]
