A year ago one of the contributors of DT, a great person and a great photographer and designer, Richard Hoffkins (Macdaddy) did a generous thing:
he bought pictures from 15 newbies, and I was lucky to be one of them. He then posted a blog article (15 Lucky Newcomers To DT) presenting our pictures.
The day he bought my pics was special for me, as for the first time I had more than one picture bought.
I remember how inspired I was to be chosen for that blog, and now after a year I’d like to make the same thing for other newbies. I got only five credits for my blogs,
so I could choose only 5 newbies, but at list five more new contributors will believe in themselves.
I looked through a great deal of new portfolios
to choose these one. So here they are:):

I was just mesmerised by this beautiful mysterious photo that could be used as a decoration picture or could make a beautiful card to express love.

This paw couldn't leave me indifferent:)
I just feel how satisfied with life and relaxed this tiger is:)

I enjoy fireworks a lot, and this picture gave me that feeling of fairy tale and holiday, besides it would make a great background.

Great ornament with these tiny leaves and flowers, and the combination of black and gold is always great. And again plenty space for text that makes this illustration not only beautiful, but useful as well.

Masks are my passion, especially Venetian masks. This picture just gives the feeling of mystery, this strange combination of daylight and the people from another place and another world just great...

So good luck to you all! And thanks again to Richard who helps making this world a better place. This another beautiful illustration from his portfolio
I'll definitely buy it for my wedding invitations;)

Many thanks! It ment a lot to me to see the first sale. A great morale boost, I even called my friends to tell them about it. :)
A newbie bows in front of your generosity!

Thanks everybody for your nice comments! They show once more what a great community DT is!
Yes, Melonstone, although they might receive only something around 30 cents, I really hope it will be supportive for these newbies. I've chosen among those contributors who had no sales so far but had really beautiful portfolios.

Thumbs up to you Kaththea!

Yeah, great idea to give a little something back, but suspect for the newbies concerned it will be a big thing, not a little thing, just like you found. And a big up for Macdaddy for starting it all!
