Since DA staff release the active feed for some beta testers (including myself) i'm still thinking is a irrelevant feature and useless, I mean, not all people will be happy with the idea that all your watchers seen everything you put in your faves zones, to me it's a little bit intruding into our own privacy of collect the art we love and more of the habitual feeling that social networks let me in the past, i think they should focus the effort in trying to make art with high quality more accessible to general public, I know a lot of artists who really deserves more ways that their art be seen by more people here, because is really sad receive thousands of faves and page view just when you collect a daily deviation and come back to the reality of a lack of audience the morning after.
Anyway and no matter what happen here i'm not planning write a miserable journal about bitter things so i will dedicate this journal to recommend some great artists you should watch too because they are truly awesome sources of inspiration, so here we go:davenestler
For me Dave is a Master since my teenage days, his sexy pin ups are simply out of this world, pure classic old school of airbrushing, if i have a predilection for pin up art is thanks to artists like Dave, a stunning kind of art as we will never see again in our lives, definitely you MUST have his gallery in your watch list.

Thomas is another master of reality, he was one of the first artists i had the pleasure to follow here when i was starting in this world of illustration and the deviantART things, i love the way how he use the pencil, soft pastels and charcoals, another great artist very skilled in paper and traditional techniques, if you really want inspiration to draw in a classic way just take a look to this impressive gallery.DMThompson
If you are more fan of classical portraits about famous definitely you must take a look to the gallery of this guy, with ink or just pencils, all his works are really awesome, one of the most terrific artists i've had the pleasure to watch here.
