This week's feature is *MelfinaCosplay
1.) To start off, what is your favorite medium and tools to use?
As much as I like doing digital work, my favorite medium to work with is watercolor. I don't have to worry about being as precise as with digital work, it's considerably faster, and feels a lot more free and fun.
2.) When you draw, do you plan everything out first, or do you just see where the drawing takes you?

This change is a little different, since it involves a feature that has been in place for a long time. We think it deserves an announcement of its own, ahead of time.
The current deviantART thumbnails (the smaller versions of deviations) have served the community well for years; however, there's always room for improvement.
Some of the problems with existing thumbnails are: they leave a lot of blank space around them, there isn't a lot of room for text for literature deviations, and the thumbnails don't present very tall/wide images well.
