Supporting our artistic community through meaningful critiques is paramount to the success and continued growth of artists. In a world where competition is king we must find a way to gather together in respectful conversation. Thank you to all of the artists who have graciously allowed me to critique their work as a humble observer.
Please support these artist with your views and comments.

MJamesThompson has started a donation pool!
170 / 200
I am asking for donations in order to commission an artist to create a logo for my work. I am looking for something fairly simple. Along with the commission points I will be adding a linkback to the artists for their help with the creation of my logo. This is my first time asking for donations and I am unsure if this is enough. Please post any thoughts on this project!

You must be logged in to donate.

I am openly appealing to anyone who comes across my work to contact me and give my images a home in your life. I travel and work in the world so that people can experience the joy and love in the world that I have found. If any of my images speak to you or remind you of a moment in your life I sincerely home that you will contact me and put a piece of my work in a frame. I would love to see a picture of my images in your homes, offices, backpacks, studios and just about anywhere else that you would consider appropriate. Through the support of other artists and passionate onlookers we can grow as a community.

Trading art with other artists is an endeavor that I have been kicking about in my mind for years and I think that I am finally able to offer images that would be worth the time and effort of other artists. I would love to hear from anyone who would be interested in trading art. Thank you for your support and I look forward to continuing to find new and interesting places in our world.

I'm Elsa, the founder of TheFavouriteShowcase.
I'm here to invite you to take a little time to visit the group, since you are a member and I haven't seen you around much - I'd like to see more of you!

Currently, we are voting here  Monthly Themes NOVEMBER_ANIMALS win points!:iconthefavouriteshowcase:


Hello dear members of TheFavouriteShowcase, friends and deviants,
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge at TheFavouriteShowcase: instead of using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites! 
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watcher

to find the favourite works to our challenge WILD ANIMALs. 
Would you please help the voting? 
By :+fav:ing the blog you will also enter a draw to win 10 :points:.

Our theme for December is SANTAandGIFTs. The folder will be open on the 1st December and it would be great to have your participation Nod

Thank you for being a member Thanks for everything!
