Cafe Noir
This mind's a coffee crumble cake,
you'll need to plunge your knife
to get the hints of coconut.
The oven door is rusted shut,
each slice upturned inside.
The frosting wasted in the pan,
the bitter grounds will rise
to greet your tongue
in equal love
and spite.

Artworks I felt were absolutely amazing and worth sharing with millions of people through the DD feature.

Been a while since I shared some awesome finds with you, guys. So let me share something special today:

A few days ago my friend Edward submitted this small deviation, which is basically part of his conversation with someone who stated that their life was dull in comparison to the fantasy world of Ed's writing. It's a very inspiring and uplifting message, as is often the case with his comments and I hope you will find it as moving as I did.
And some other awesome stuff for good measure:
No Time for Napping by RasheruSuzieMy friend RasheruSuzie won first place in Iduna-Haya's contest with this gorgeous painting. She has an outstanding gallery full of lush colors, hot horned demons and lots of other awesomeness. 
Shadow play by MegapixelMasterpiece  Playground by LualaDy
The amazing duo LualaDy and MegapixelMasterpiece recently shared some more of their photo-adventures.

I've been following lovelessdevotions's journal features almost religiously for the past few months and if you have, too, then you know how high quality they are. And you can imagine how flattered and amazed I was to find myself in her most recent The Next Big Thing journal. :dance: :happybounce:

And finally, I'd like to invite you to hang out with me and a handful of great people at John Yau's discord server: It's a small but very pleasant and cozy community and it's a pleasure to hang out and exchange ideas.
All the Gwent contest entries are out! :eager: 18 whole pages of gorgeous entries :drool:
You can go check them out and vote for my piece here:…

Speaking of contests, today is the last day you can submit to devfeatures 's feature contest! :la:  Members feature No.4 + CONTESTHello, lovely people! In celebration to reaching our 100 members benchmark in devfeatures I have prepared a small contest for you. In accordance with the group's theme this challenge will be all about features!

Create an art feature. The theme, format, art included - everything is up to you. You have full freedom with creativity and design.

It has to be in journal form. There will be two categories: CSS and non-CSS features to keep it fair for premium and non-premium users (the CSS doesn't have to be created by you).

7th of APRIL

UszatyArbuz and myself DanielaIvanova

There will be two winners: one for CSS feature and one for non-CSS feature:

 I won't give a specific time deadline so it won't hurt if you're a couple hours late. UszatyArbuz and I will judge the entries over the next few days. I can already tell it's going to be difficult! :noes:

And finally a special mention to an awesome artist I found today whose gallery blew my mind, you should totally check out her work, it's mesmerizing:
West Watchtower by fallingSarah  Samhain by fallingSarah  Omens by fallingSarah   Autumn Fox by fallingSarah
Also check out this gorgeous portrait Uriak made of me:  Daniela - Study by Uriak
I'm amazed and so thrilled that people actually want to paint me. I never saw myself on that side of the canvas. Needless to say it makes me feel awesome, so if anyone else wants to join in, I'd be more than pleased to send a photo. :D My man is also really proud of these, which says a lot since he usually wants me all to himself.
Thank you everyone for the support on yet another successful week at devfeatures. I little bit late but here's the update on last week's articles:
Theme Feature No. 6 - Moon
Hello, lovely people! So glad to have you stop by! Welcome to our weekly Themed feature! This week’s feature comes to you from both devfeatures and AllArtandStuff.
:icondevfeatures:        :iconallartandstuff:
For this week I am happy to share with you some beautiful artwork based on the theme “MOON” starting with some pieces from our awesome members at AllArtandStuff. This is definitely one of the more popular themes since nighttime offers such a fascinating and mysterious setting for any painting or story. The night and the moon specifically have been central to many cultures and religious over the long history of humankind. It has captivated people’s imagination for millennia with its milky, gentle glow, so different from the sun’s bright harsh light. For artists it has provided an amazing opportunity to study a different ki
Medium Feature No.6 - Fractal Art
Hello, lovely people! So glad to have you stop by! Welcome to our weekly medium feature coming to you from devfeatures.
For this week I am happy to showcase some gorgeous FRACTAL ART. It's a category of art that not many people understand or appreciate because of its particular process. It can be said that it's an acquired taste but once you get used to its unique and distinct aesthetic it can be truly inspiring and thought-provoking like any abstract art. For me fractal art is a fascinating exploration of textures, shapes and colors much like abstract oil painting, or collage but it has an underlying set of rules that show through for the discerning eye and enhance the experience even more. Here to tell us a little bit about fractal art we have our former and current fractal art community volunteers Sam (ChaosFissure) and Silvia (C-91):
"Fractal Art is a

Color study on skin tones.

I'm really proud of how the medium features are turning out, I like how well-rounded they are with community contribution and groups and everything. Huge thanks to the lovely people who took part! C-91, ChaosFissure :heart: You guys are awesome!

Something that bothers me is the kind of accounts that fav the articles. I already know most of the regular viewers, but half of the favs come from weird empty accounts, mostly opened 2 years ago, with <1k pageviews, no comments or deviations and absolutely random favourites. It makes me wonder if they are legit personal accounts. Have you had experience with that?

Box of awesome!
