Top Community Feature Requests and Our Responses

In May, we introduced the DeviantArt Timeline as a method of communicating with deviants and providing transparency about what’s planned for our collective future. During the site simplification process that followed, we received a number of comments from deviants asking why we were working on the features presented on the Timeline instead of other things. Many of the features brought up in these comments are ones that have been requested for years. We want to be more transparent about these suggested features, why some of them haven’t happened yet, and why some of them may never happen.
These requests are from past Site Updates, the Suggestions Forum, surveys, and individual requests we’ve received.

Extremely thrilled about this: app.mailerlite.com/j9w9k6

My second prose publication after 'God Killers' is finally available - and with an afterword by the great China Miéville!

I'll be honest - I'm really nervous about it, now it's actually out! It's ferociously honest, very much a soul-bearing.

It's angry, it's odd, it's highly experimental, and it's verging on confessional - which perhaps is no surprise to anybody who reads my journals!

I have no doubt that some people will think it is pretentious, impenetrable crap - a one-trick pony.

But - I know it has also found its fans. China Mieville, for example, spent a long afternoon with me in London going through the whole manuscript with his wonderful writers eye. He wrote the afterword for me because he fell in love with it. Though he also had to go to bat for me to convince the publisher it was worth it. As Peter Crowther himself noted, it had polarised the staff at PS Publishing. I suspect it will do the same with the people that buy it.

So yes, I'm nervous.

Nervous about its reception - or lack of.

Scared because I feel very naked indeed now it's out - I believe all artists worth their weight feel this at some time or other.

And also fearful that my literary intentions - the influence of James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, and Dylan Thomas, amongst others - might seem lofty and preposterous. Hubris even.

And the internal debate over what constitutes greatness might seem like I am actually gifting myself that, rather than questioning the nature of it.

I'm fearful of sounding like an arrogant, self-indulgent wannabe.

But I've braved these risks! I've put it out there. I've done it.

The book was finished in 2008, at a time when I was fighting a lot of self-doubt and depression, but still reaching for the skies.

For those interested in the agonies of the creative life it might prove revelatory.

Liam Sharp is the co-founder and CCO of Madefire, as well as an artist, writer and publisher. www.madefire.com

He made his debut in the late 1980s drawing Judge Dredd for 2000ad. He later moved to Marvel UK, where he drew the best-selling Marvel UK title ever, Death's Head II.

This saw the launch of the critically acclaimed and award-winning anthology Event Horizon, and the prestigious collaboration with Mother (London) Advertising, Four Feet From a Rat, which appeared as a quarterly comic in Time Out magazine. This led to work on three major advertising campaigns for the Coca-Cola Company, art and design work for Strange Beast, Passion Pictures, Knuckleheads, Shots magazine and Red Arrow Entertainment amongst others.

Liam also worked on designs for the movies Lost in Space, Small Soldiers and the animated series Batman Beyond.

More recent work includes co-creating the controversial DC/Vertigo title Testament with best-selling novelist and media commentator Douglas Rushkoff, the comic adaptation of the seminal XBox game Gears of War for Wildstorm, and the graphic novella Aliens: Fast Track to Heaven for Dark Horse.

Hello Liam!

Seven years ago I attended a small class with you at Derby Quad, and now I'm visiting your exhibition at Derby Museums! I wish I had gotten your autograph at the time now!

I've made a little slideshow of your exhibition. I hope everyone enjoys your art!
