Suggest Some Good Art To Me!!

I'm an Admin at SeniorSelections



:bulletblack: I prefer that the fandom being cosplayed is a clearly known series (Kill La Kill, Hatsune Miku, etc), or easily inferred from style of dress (steampunk, Victorian, etc)

:bulletblue: I prefer vividness is photography and costume. Suggest something that will blow my socks off!


:bulletblack: This must be original work! I will not accept rips from ISS Space Station camera, no matter how good it looks.

:bulletblue: As long as it involves something space-related, I'm happy to accept it. This includes tutorials, comic strips, Terraspace digital artwork, etc.


:bulletblack: Science Fiction may be based on the real world, but it should be removed enough from current reality that the fictional component is easily seen.

:bulletblue: Since Science Fiction can cover so much material, I would appreciate an explanation of why the deviation appealed to you so much in your suggestion note. Help me see the image through your eyes!

:bulletblue: I prefer vividness in the subject matter and medium. Suggest something that will blow my socks off!


Send me a note with a thumb or link to the deviation you're suggesting. Please title your note: "SeniorSelections Suggestion" or something to that effect.

:bulletblack: Please only send your suggestion to ONE person on the SeniorSelections team.
:bulletblack: One thumb or link per note, please. It helps me stay organized.
:bulletblack: I will respond to all suggestions as soon as I have time to read them. If you do not hear from me within a couple weeks, please feel free to send me a poke.
:bulletblack: You can include a blurb about why you feel a piece deserves to be featured, but it is not necessary. Truly good artwork speaks for itself. :)

Autumn's Last Flower by exarobibliologist
Autumn's Last Flower
Most everything around here is shriveling up for winter. Been a ridiculous amount of rain too, which has drowned a bunch of plants.
But, this one cloudy day, I saw this beautiful flower. I had to take a picture of it.

If you like this picture, you can download the full resolution photo for just a little over $1, or get it purchase it as a print.

LLAMA'S ARE ALWAYS RETURNED!! Just give me a llama, and you'll get one back. Llama for llama!

Hi, I'm exarobibliologist!

My username is a made up word, formed by combining the Greek words exaro ("to dig"), biblia ("to read", "books", "library"), and ology ("person", "one who"). Put it all together, and I am "one who digs good books", or an exarobibliologist.

I've had several usernames in the past. For the longest time (11 years), I was cypher-neo. My original username had nothing to do with the Matrix, and you can only take so many Matrix jokes before...
I changed my username to archaeobibliologist, which I thought meant "I dig good books", but I got my Greek words mixed up...
So I finally changed my username to exarobibliologist.

Let me tell you a little bit about me:
I am normal person with opinions and feelings, just like everyone else. More specifically, I am an INTJ, with an IQ over 180. As an introvert, I'm very awkward socially, but I do my best to smile at all times, and I have an infectious laugh when amused.

I figure I'll never be remembered for doing anything impressively special in life, but I hope to inspire other people, and to be remembered for all the small things I've helped in.

I am addicted to coffee and hot chocolate. I hate weak coffee!

I'm a professional photographer. I shoot engagements, weddings, nature, fashion, models...

I'm a nerd, and I revel in my nerdity. I give wannabe nerds an inferiority complex.

I'm a book nerd! I usually finish a book or 2 (sometimes 3!) a week. Although I respect the continuity of trilogies, and will read them in order, it's not unusual to find me reading 5-6 books at any given time.

I'm also a Linux nerd! I assist on the Linux Mint and Debian Linux IRC channels. I'm usually tweaking something on my computer, or shell scripting.

I feel I'm better at writing stories than poetry, but sometimes I can't think of the words to say to write longer, so then I write verses. I like vividness of subject in both pictures and literature. I enjoy writing parodies on existing songs and poems.

I'm very eclectic in television and movies. Mostly anime, science fiction, and fantasy, but occasionally I do something from another genre.

I was a MN@ for about a year and a half and I enjoyed every minute of it! Volunteering for deviantART is a wonderful experience and I encourage everyone to try it.

I only take critiques well when it's coming from someone who wants to help me improve. I don't respect criticism from people who give decide that an art critique can also include comments about my parenting, or other similar incendiary subjects. I don't mind getting a negative critique; but when you critique me please do it to help me improve. Don't just bash me...

I am fiercely loyal to all of my friends, and I always stand up for my friends and what I believe in. If someone does or says something that I feel is wrong, I'll respond and, I can be a fierce fighter when I'm needed to be. I will help people unreservedly. If you ever need any help, just send me a note and I'll be glad to assist you as far as possible.

I'm an Admin on SeniorSelections. I select artwork to feature in Cosplay, Science Fiction, and Space galleries. Please send me the suggestions you have for those art types. Any art I select to be featured on SeniorSelections I suggest for a DD.

Hi Sean! Thanks for the llama! Since you "dig good books," then I would be much obliged if you'd check out my debut novel: Gloomy Ruins Everything which is for sale on (At least I hope it's good, lol!)

Here's the link for that:…
