Commitment to the cause creates all kinds of perks and opportunities. I'm figuring that out everyday that I've been a Community Volunteer, which up to a week. The commitment, communication and coordination levels are all definitely there and at times, hard to keep up with. I've been planning my first content publishing's in collaboration of a few other staff for you guys and doing what I can to stay on top of the Daily Deviations. Thanks for hangin' with me while I get my ass in gear.
With all that's sincerely obligated of you, the #1 thing artists want are the keys to the categorical Porsche. Having the ability to discover, select and show the community what YOU think; is an awesome thing. Looking at the rest of Deviant Art outside of the Designs & Interfaces, it's difficult enough selecting a DD through out all of the great work submitted. I hope you like what I've chosen this week.
Like many of alexiuss's pieces, this CD cover provides a deep and detailed look into a series of images going back in this artist's gallery, that have made the cover of a few lucky musicians. The cover provides a wonderful scene of intensity, movement and detail. A well planned color palette gives this piece the focus it needs to convey a surreal and epic moment. The visual message is clear and convincing. This is my first Daily Deviation and it was a tough decision to make. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Known the world over for his breathtaking fantasy art work, kerembeyit needs no intro to the DA community. That being said, Kerem rarely works on logo design, focusing mainly on cover material artistry. So when he can incorporate one of his signature dragons into a logo piece, you can assure it's going to get plenty of looks. Woven blade tip banners, genuinely unique logo font and a kickass bearded Fire Dragon. This logo is another good DD for the books.
Putting enormous amounts of time in perfecting the Dark Matter series, SkinsFactory dishes out one of the most comprehensive, fluid and tasteful themes for the Windows operating system. Subspace is one of a few jaw dropping themes in the lineup that provides a nearly full user experience with complete desktop, menu, sub-menu and icon upgrades with Hyperdesk at it's core. If your like me where it's all or none and will only settle for the best is OS theme replacement, this one has got to be at or near the top of the list. For a full demonstration, check out the Hyperdesk website to see it in action.

One of the more debated pieces in the advertising section, let alone Deviant Art. Paul certainly had brought himself attention with his clean, new age character design and no nonsense approach to illustration. This piece throws back to an era of innocence, public persuasion and pride in a country, not to mention the survival of humanity as we know it. Propaganda was a major marketing tool for a countries agenda during that time and Paul does a great job in conveying that with this piece. Coming from a CV who lost the vast majority of his family in this exact war, I felt not only the artwork but the artist's description feedback and the deviant comments that followed are worth this DD. Let's not forget who we are but also realize who need to be to get along and prosper as a civilization.
