stand out and smile!
once in a while...

if only i could follow that direction myself...

edit: thanks for comments and favs :w00t!: that certainly puts a smile on my face ;)

*Photospin (Photospin is a stock website for professionals and agencies)

edit 2013 I received a msg earlier today through another page that I got a DD for this piece. It's been quite a while I haven't been to DA and I'm a member here since 10,5 long years so I felt the urge to reply as too many people are making their own facts about how overused this work is or why I used a stock photo or why there's a watermark, etc. I did this in 2008 so I do not care about the overuse and this is not photography and I do AD designs and I do not necessarily take photos for every single piece that I work on and yes, people do steal this work whether you like it or not. Apart from that, thanks for all the comments (good or bad) and favs. Have a nice day everyone.

PS: "It's so simple, I could have done it" So why haven't you done??

edit 2014 I photographed and designed a re-Smile version…

Nice work! I really like the expressions-- especially that of the smiling egg. It's a bit odd and quirky, but that's what helps set it apart from the rest of them, eh? I also like the fact that this picture has a flexible, symbolic nature to it. One could interpret it as staying optimistic even when things seem bleak. Another could see it as the survival of individuality. Even if the majority looks the same (Which tends to occur with every passing fashion trend), acts the same, speaks the same, etc, one can still save their own individuality. As long as they remember not to bury it in an attempt to conform, they'll still retain their own distinct self. So while everyone else is frustrated and depressed by not being the perfect example of what's accepted as beautiful and normal, the one who embraces their differences can smile on.

Congratulations on getting a DD. :)

I dont like some things that get a DD but i dont complain about em and say negative things on someones work.
why not? because its flat out stupid to comment on something you dont like that wont change , its a waste of time
Its rude & I wouldnt like someone to do it to me if I gotten a Daily Deviation Feature.
Its not like DDs come to your inbox or something & everyone knows the artist doesnt ask for the feature
Just dont look at it

Congrats on the DD :) :thumbsup:
