Thumbshare Celebration -- Winners and Feature!I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's birthday shenanigans and that you guys had some celebratory cake for deviantART's twelfth birthday!
As some of you may know, there was also a small contest taking place in the Thumb-share-forum.
You had to find thumbs with the number "two" or "twelve" in there and link them.
And today, I'm happy to announce the winner and the two special mentions!
She picked twelve thumbs of two similar things and the pieces she picked are gorgeous!
As such, she is the winner of the Thumbshare-hunt and the 1 year PM!
Current happenings in the community

- #Free-dAvatars is holding their monthly challenge, with this month's theme being "Four Seasons"!
Every month, I'll try to feature a new and promising iconist. This will either be because their work is outstanding and improving with leaps and bounds, or because they're new to the medium and already create beautiful pieces. Suggestions via note are welcome!
For this month, I picked a relatively new deviant who already does amazing work when tit comes do pixel icons, =Mimru. Her icons are small, but incredibly detailed and cute as can be!
