Give Thanks... deviantART. Friends. Features.

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 22, 2011, 10:03 PM
Edit: Share with your friends on Twitter as well!!/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

deviously yours,

I'm thankful for my friends,thats it. I'm widely despise and hated on here,though. I won't say WHY and don't even ask,but I'll fave this like you ask because I don't see why not.

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:

Que lindo, gracias!!

1.- Porque gracias a esta pagina puedo dar a conocer mis dibujos, cosa que casi nunca hacia por pena.

2.- A que tengo unos geniales padres que se que me apoyaran aun cuando no esten deacuerdo conmigo.

3.- A la vida porque aunque me trae de un hilo todo el tiempo es maravilloso vivirla, con o sin pesares.

4.- al dibujo que hicimos una amiga y yo una vez hace mucho tiempodonde nos retratabamos juntos.. lo ame me hizo darme cuenta k pocos amigos hacen detallitos lindos como ese.

Es lindo dar gracias por algo..

:heart: I am thankful for the chance to be myself through my art here on deviantART.
:heart: I am thankful for the weirdest, craziest, loveliest little knuckleheads that I call my best friends.
:heart: I am thankful for meeting the man who has been an absolute angel to me and stood by my side when my depression made it tough for both of us.
:heart: One piece of art I am thankful for is [link] because it's positive and uplifting.

:hug: Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Mr. Zev <3

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 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:

I am thankful for:

:bulletred: Meeting a ton of people on here, both good and bad, as life would be boring with just good people.

:bulletorange: My dog Daisy. She may not be the best, but she's the sweetest thing.

:bulletyellow: Webcomics and how they entertain people.

:bulletgreen: Any picture created by my friends. I can't choose one, as it's too hard.

:bulletblack: Meeting one of my best friends here that I plan on meeting in real life sooner or later~

:bulletblack: For not always having everything Ive ever wanted. It made it so I didnt turn into a spoiled brat like most of this generations kids~
:bulletblack: And this picture I drew for one of my friends who has been having a rough time in her life: [link]

:bulletred:1 thing on deviantART you are thankful for:
Mainly the fact that you know, people won't just turn down my art because it isn't top notch quality. I'm glad an admin doesn't go through and rid the pieces he or she deems not worthy.
:bulletred:1 thing with your family, loved ones, friends, etc. you are thankful for:
They've always held me up. One even told me that the world hasn't turned its back on me, I'm just facing the wrong way. That's helped me.
:bulletred:1 thing in your life you are thankful for:
Thankful for a sheet of paper and a pencil. Together, we create things of unimaginable porportions.
:bulletred:1 piece of art you, or a fellow deviant created that you are thankful for:
All of those people on my friends and watch list, I am so thankful for. This month, I find myself extremely greatful for ~forgetful01 if I had to choose. C:
