My Feature is inspired by games like Fade , Closure and 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 as well as the song "Losing your Season" by Pizuya's Cell 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

My entry for Kara-a's Feature Contest :aww: 
  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 :+devwatch:es or at least just give your :eyes: a treat :eager:  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 :rofl: :icononicheer:
Here's a truly, truly beautiful piece of music to entertain your ears while you look

I'm featuring deviations i really love, and in order to help people get the a.t.t.e.n.t.i.o.n they deserve ! [not that my journal is getting so much views but... you know... ;)]
I especially chose this black Skin so that devations really pop out the page !

Colors are wonderful.

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.

Hi, I do not know if old journals are also accepted. But I give it a try. It was made for a group and the theme was non-real by colors. [link] I didn't have made a reedit, although some pictures are not seen, because I expect they were deleted by the deviant. Maybe it could be an idea for otheres how to see colors :-)

Have a great weekend :sun:
