A red bite
Among the first faces Sigsten could remember seeing was the enormous white muzzle and cold black nose of doctor Klein. The old lone wolf had given him a pat between his ears as he sat on his mother's lap, as is the way of canids everywhere and in all ages, and though Sigsten forgot the words he never forgot the doctor's peculiar accent, at once coarse and melodious, yet unmistakably as Danish as his own.
From that moment on the little ferret never could imagine why the other cubs were ever so afraid to see a doctor. Of course, a growing ferret kit soon forgets how to easily fear, so perhaps he never would have understood anyhow. Still he would never have admitted he almost enjoyed the weekly visit to the pediatrician. The office of doctor Klein smelled on one paw homely of old oak, as the study of a scholarly grandfather, and on the other of exotic substances in lines of glass phials and decanters and other such things that rouse the curiosity of young boys given to thinking. There was

Groups

It would seem that I have one hundred watchers.
At least, so I think. Some have left the site in the past year. For others, the notifications have been somewhat less than reliable and not let me know. But, our knowledge is as accurate as our instruments allow.

The number mostly comes to mind since as a Swede afflicted with Asperger syndrome, I have rather a liking for round, neat, even numbers. What matters more is the realisation of just how many things have changed in the past year. One year ago, I had no presence whatsoever, indeed not even the capacity to formulate the idea: A following of any sort at all seemed the domain of artists of legend - something that brought names like Giger, Parkinson, Nihei, Giraud or Pennington to mind. Not I.
But fortunately, one is not yet too old to learn a new thing or two.
I can only say thank you all for helping me grow not only as an artist but as a person, and for finding my work of interest. I will strive to continue earning that privilege.

It only feels appropriate repeating the words of Kurosawa brought up in my journal on five thousand page views: Only helping others can you help yourself, acknowledging the occasion by bringing attention to some things that have been on my mind recently.

projecteducate will be hosting an anthro-themed week in July, and writers are currently sought.
Anthro Week: We Need You!Anthro Week
Greetings fellow anthro and furry artists! Foxy Wave 
projecteducate is hosting an Anthro Week from July 1st - July 6th! We are seeking members like yourself to write/contribute articles to this week! The Anthro Community encompasses a huge diversity of mediums and skill sets, so we are looking for a large variety of articles to reflect that fact. Almost anything goes! 
There are so many options and possibilities! Here is a list of ideas the community indicated were things they wanted to see during Project Educate weeks:
Tutorials
Fursuits
Art Features
InterviewsGuidelines to the Galleries
Workshops for Beginners - inc chats/live stream guides/video tutorials e.t.c
Constructive Critique - Comments and Favs Art Discussion History on a specific craft or mediumDiscussion of GroupsAnthro-related debate topics
We even have an "Ask an Anthro" feature planned so if you have questions yo

If you have an interest in anthro-themed worldbuilding, knowledge of fursuit crafting, a good tutorial to share, or perhaps thoughts on the more esoteric aspects of the fandom, do have a look. Your knowledge is valuable and well worth sharing.

ProjectComment has not only provided a good forum for exchanging critique, but also hosts events to showcase less exposed work.
More Exposure #67ProjectComment is a Group that provides Guaranteed & Constructive comments for the DeviantArt community, but we aim to feature under-appreciated artwork too!
This article series will highlight works submitted to the More Exposure folder. Submit your pieces to this folder for more exposure on our front page and a news article! Submission limit is 1 deviation/week.
Before you submit, please comment on some of these pieces!
If you do, link your comment below for a chance to be featured in the monthly newsletter! :la:






Some very promising pieces on display, and across a wide range of styles as well.

Finally, I usually finish journals on a high note, and I usually do not highlight a single person no matter the issue. But today, must make an exception.
EmergencyHi. My name is Friday. I'm a friend of Bobbie's. She went to the hospital yesterday in screaming agony. She was diagnosed with occipital neuralgia. She had an attack that she described as a nine on the pain scale and like someone trying to pry her skull off her neck with ice picks to the back of her head. The doctors gave her some Dilaudid and muscle relaxers which brought the pain down somewhat but she's still in bad shape.
Any plans she has in regards to commissions or other art projects are on hold for now. If you see any GOFUNDME campaigns crop up, DO NOT contribute. Bobbie has not agreed to or okay'd any Gofundme campaigns. We've discussed it over and she hasn't ruled out the idea just yet but she wants to make sure it's even necessary. She had to sign some papers that people without insurance sign which authorizes charities to act on her behalf. IF they fall through, which can happen, then she'll think about starting a gofundme campaign.
She's not really very clearheaded at the m

There are many people I have to thank for driving on my development in the past year, but none quite so much for first precipitating it as Bobbie Jean Pentecost. Her health has always been a concern, but the thought that her ability to work may be at risk is unbearable.
There is no call for help, but please, if there should be, be aware.

Stay strong, all.

Marten painter
GIMP 2, around eight hours. Referenced from the presumed self-portrait of Jan van Eyck. Practicing painting some arboreal mustelids while waiting for trade update.
Went with overwhelming yellow and near-black hoping to simulate poorly aged oil, but ended up overdoing it. Oh, well.

A painter in a European renaissance inhabited by people-shaped animals is bound to be a beech marten. If you do not have it in your blood, you have it in your fur.
The headpiece is a chaperon, basically a tailed hood worn rolled up and upside-down. While it may look peculiar to modern eyes, can tell from personal expercience it is both comfortable and versatile.

Peculiar. It seems HTML in poll queries comes out broken when viewed, but correct in the list of polls.
Good to know for the future.

Whence we come
Something different today. Visiting my parents and trying out something I should have done twenty-five years ago.

Painted in Deluxe Paint IV on Commodore Amiga 500+ with extended RAM and standard mouse. Deluxe Paint seems a lot more versatile today when I actually understand the manual.

I feel that today, my respect and outright awe for our brothers and sisters who were pathfinders in the pioneer days of home computer graphics has grown to a level from which it can never recede.

Unfortunately this picture is now lost, as I attempted to save before checking if the disk was intact. How familiar...

Hello there.

Does anyone know if there is a way to set a specified range when using the random dynamic in GIMP? For example, specifying a range from, say, 0 to 90 degrees when setting rotation as random.

Currently painting an English river scene, and hoping to get those custom brushed water violets to land just right.

Hey, how have you been Tinsel? Remember me? :D

Have you been writing anymore interesting robot stories? I absolutely loved the 3 that you had, you have such creative writing! ^^

Oooh, new avatar?
Furball looks in good shape as always.

Curious coincidence you'd ask yesterday - I started writing an essay on writing robot characters the same morning. I have also been writing the "missing" third chapter of Mink and robot weasel [...], just need to get in touch with the original artists and make sure I still have permission to use the characters.

Thank you very much! It's one of my favorites. :D

That is quite the coincidence indeed! Knowing your amazing descriptions and detail with Mink and Robot Weasel, I'm sure they'll let you write with them again! ^^

I've been working on Furball as well, improving his specs and trying to give his AI more unique personality quirks c:

Absolutely no worries!
I am no magician when it comes to Internet communities myself - Deviantart is only the third I have been in, and the first since 2003.
Often I take a week just to enter a smiley o.O

Why, thank you <3

Waiting to have my broadband restored so I can have a proper look at your bulldog. Have some smaller dogs of my own planned for later this Spring.
