How to make a great Journal featureJournal Feature Tutorial
How to make a great Journal feature!
This article has been written for %projecteducate by `miontre.
Featuring other artists in your Journal is a great thing to do, because everyone wins! Not only are you supporting other artists by giving them some extra exposure, but you can also earn some exposure for yourself and make new friends too. Additionally, those who view your feature have the opportunity to find some new art and artists.
Therefore, it pays to make your Journal features the best they can be. Making a really good Journal feature can involve a lot of time and work - planning, collecting artwork, arranging the artwork in a Journal, publication, and promotion. Taking these steps instead of merely dragging in thumbs from your Favourites will result in an appealing and rewarding Journal feature. In this tutorial, we're going to produce a feature with images arranged like this:
RainbowDunno how you're feeling but I definitely need colors. Winter in Germany is depressing... D:

Kara-a's small FeatureSmall Feature Contest By =Kara-a
My Feature is inspired by games like Fade http://www.kongregate.com/games/frozencoin/fade?acomplete=fade , Closure http://www.kongregate.com/games/GlaielGamer/closure?acomplete=closu and Take a Walk http://www.kongregate.com/games/logosogol/take-a-walk?acomplete=let%27s+take+a+walk
But there was also music that inpired me like "Feuerkind", "Abendland", "Abendlied", "Bis in alle Ewigkeit", "Mir allein", "Kaltes Herz", and "Finster, Finster" by Subway to Sally http://subwaytosally.com/ as well as the song "Losing your Season" by Pizuya's Cell http://www.pizuya.com/ and "Yes, it's Genozide" by Serj Tankian. Even if I don't understand the text of the last two, it's their feeling and emotion that they emit, that is so inspiring for me.
Update: read more about this at the end of the Feature
A hint of colour - featureA small collection of pictures where the colour is the detail, and the detail is the protagonist.

My entry for =Kara-a's Feature Contest
Pastel Coloured Plant Squares FeatureHurray! I'm doing a feature at least, =Kara-a motivated me with her little contest c: so, my dear watchers and visitors, for all of you, I collected a bunch of pastel coloured plants in square format. A really long theme, but there are so many great works out there so I had to specify it. Hopefully you'll get it as "colour themed" feature, =Kara-a! (:

Sonic Fanart Feature: Green Through the YearsNot every great Sonic artist is popular. I may not envy some of their watcher counts, but I am green with envy for these artists' talent!
~Anubins and ~MisterMacanulty provide some of the more unique Sonic fanart I've seen by way of style variance. I never envisioned these particular approaches to Green Hill working, yet they do. I love the color on Anubin's piece, and the detail on Macanulty's Eggman is just superb.
Two slightly different classic Sonic's here from ~TheJege12 and ~SilentRain12. I like Jege's use of a warped, twisted perspective to convey the speed of the series, and SilentRain's use of the wind in Sonic's spikes to add movement to a moment of stillness and serenity.
A beautiful take on the second game's Emerald H
The Joy of Colours II.
This is my second colours feature and I have to admit to being guilty of repeating some of my more favourite brightly coloured deviations here. I just couldn't help myself :iconteheplz:
Today I'm going to celebrate (again) my own personal delight with bright and varied colours and I really hope you love it and find some new :iconstarhugplz:s and es or at least just give your a treat There's a section for rainbow colours and then a section on individual colours in rainbow order - after my beloved white, which I could not ignore :icononicheer:
Here's a truly, truly beautiful piece of music to entertain your ears while you look

The Power Of Colors.Colors are so powerful. Power is strength. Strength is shown in saturation. And saturation is color.
Colors are wonderful.

Themed Feature - Complementary Colours in NatureComplementary colours are those colours in the colour wheel that are opposite each other. Starting with the three primary colours you get the combinations blue & orange, red & green and yellow & purple.
My entry for =Kara-a's feature contest. The theme is color. I chose orange for the orange awareness.
Beauty is all around us. The color orange makes me think of: passionate, tropical, warm, citrus, otherworldly.
