As I have realised that literature is also a Traditional form just converted to digital. This folder can be great to get more people reading your literature or see your story sketches.
A photographer, *HeWhoWalksWithTigers has taken a step to help save wild animals all over the world. I have copy and pasted the following from HeWhoWalksWithTigers journal:

"I've been talking about FREELAND quite a bit over the past year. After all, I've been happily helping them partly because of your help! However, FREELAND is currently in a predicament and could use the help of fellow wildlife photographers out there!

The Problem

The illegal wildlife trade is estimated to have a value of billions of dollars every year, making it the third most lucrative international industry behind guns and drugs. However, despite this trade wiping out wildlife all over the world, efforts of law enforcement have yet to match those of the criminals that traffic wildlife. Simply put, the illegal wildlife trade is not taken seriously. As a result, law enforcement and customs personnel often do not have the training to identify wildlife and wildlife products that they come across. This lack of knowledge prevents cases from being developed against wildlife criminals.

FREELAND is developing a mobile app for enforcement and customs personnel in Southeast Asia to help them easily identify wildlife that is being trafficked, especially those being trafficked illegally. However, given the number of species trafficked, FREELAND simply does not have the resources to pay for the rights to use professional photos of wildlife in their app.

The Solution

Here is where you come in! If you are interested in helping FREELAND tackle the illegal wildlife trade and are a wildlife photographer, you can help by donating your photos for use in this app. All photographers will be credited and FREELAND will inform you when the app is released.

How to Help

For those interested, please take a look at the list of species below. If you have high-quality images of any of these species and wish to donate your photos to the cause, you  cab send them to If you do, please list the species and your name somewhere in the photo file name; that will make things easy for organizing and crediting later on (hopefully, if we do get a lot of photos)!

Image resolution is preferred to be larger than 2048 x 1566 pixels, but smaller images are also acceptable.

Please share with friends here on DeviantArt through your journal and in the groups you belong to! It will help get the word out there!

I have not been running this group much, as I have had other matters to attend to and it just got a whole lot busier for me, because i have 2 summer Assignments to complete before the 30th August, and they require a lot of attention, this is for getting into the college that I start in September, Level 3 BTECFoundation Diploma for Art and Design and this is very important for my career to eventually become a Professional Artist, if I have time to be on deviantART, I will try to be on here.

Thank you for understanding!

I submitted a deviation of mine, however, it didn't let me submit to the "Markers" folder, so I submitted it under "Watercolor." Why is it that you can't submit to the other folders?
StevenARTify Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2012  Student General Artist
I'm not really sure of why that is happening, there seems to be problem with that folder all of the time. I accepted your deviation for the watercolour folder and when I have access to a computer I can then see if I can fix the marker folder. :)
