Hello all!:tighthug: It's been ages it seems like since an update and it's high time I post some more colorful features and commemorate our soon to be 6,000 wonderful colorful creative members. :squee:

Lots of thanks and I hope we can keep the black and white down to <10% of submissions please. Just a gentle reminder. Also try to have 3+ distinct colors in each piece and cover 70% or more of artwork with anything but white. I love white but this is a colorful group, make white the way to make the colors pop, not be the primary color. I have noticed an increase in the bare minimum for this requirement and though I am not super strict I want to keep the group integrity and the standard to a reasonable level. I appreciate the time it takes for a variety of color and I hope we can all emulate to some degree our wonderful contributors :iconwolfepaw:, :icontrollgirl: and :icontomaszlange:

Now that I'm done with the rules reminders I can move onto funner stuff like ART!!!!:squee:  Here are the Artists of the month for the summer and I had a lot of trouble picking this month due to so many colorful options. :wow:

Hello all!!! Amidst the spring mayhem and pending summer bbqs we have some color to show in abundance. I apologize for any missed submissions or for not sorting folders as fast as normal but I am in the middle of a move and have had barely enough time to sleep let alone be on DA. I will be back at it soon and hope you enjoy the features presented below. Also thank you all for being creative, complete, and colorful. :tighthug:
