About Project Porkchop

The DeviantArt Experience can sometimes quickly become the quintessential example of that most frustrating problem: too much of a good thing. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to peruse the thousands of submissions and postings of artistic innovation, creativity and sheer beauty that are generated everyday.

So thank you for ProjectPorkchop!

Astralseed, an Icelandic deviant artist with a penchant for equines, including Quirlicorns (a breed of unicorns), has made our busy lives so much easier with ProjectPorkchop, a feature she started on her DeviantArt page. Project Porkchop’s fine eye for the best of the newly submitted artworks of virtually unknown artists, the incredible art that slips past us, unseen and denied its due, day after day, has meant so very much for these artists trying to create a presence in the art world, beginning on DeviantArt. By spotlighting these skilled artists  and connecting creative art and creative art lovers, this group is doing the arts universe an immeasurable service.

- Eyapis can have any hairstyle! c:
- Read the species info before you enter

If you have any questions feel free to ask

Eyapi - Species infoOverview
The Eyapi is a small creature that is always on the move and don't really like to settle in one place. They can easily adapt to different climates and can therefore be found in almost any habitat.
They live in a world similar to earth but much smaller and contains many different forms of magic. 
Their diet consists mainly of berries and fruit but they can eat almost anything if needed. they just prefer berries and fruit because of the taste.
They are very defenseless creatures and their best chance of survival is to make sure no enemies gets near. To do so they regularly make really loud noises which keeps enemies at distance. Eyapis are immune to this noise and can not hear it.
Eyapis live together in groups of 5-20 individuals.
Their lifespan is very long, around 300-400 years.
The Eyapi is a small creature. Their average height is 25 inches measured from the top of their head.
Their appearance somewhat varies depending on where they live. The c
Eyapi - Species Guide by Kamirah

Winners will be judged based on the design and NOT on art skills.

I will choose 10 winners that get to keep their MYO Eyapi for free. If there's a lot of entries I will choose up to 10 more winners.

One winner will also get one custom Eyapi from me for free! This will be the one with the design I find most awesome! :D

If you do not win you will still be able to keep your Eyapi for $15 or 1500 :points:
And if you want to keep the design but don't want to pay for it you can still reuse the design on another creature/species.

Contest ends February 20th.

I’ve harped on about this before and I’m going to do it again…..and again and again…..until people stop doing it.

I do not fave pictures that have watermarks right across them.

This isn’t me being monumentally arrogant and thinking that I alone faving a piece of work bestows upon it some kind of greatness. This is just me having an artistic eye.
If you’ve slaved to create the most astounding piece of work to have ever graced the galleries of deviantart, something that puts all your peers to shame and will remain a benchmark that others aim to match for years to come…..and then across the middle of it you decide to slap a watermark that you spent 5 minutes farting out: you just f**ked up your artwork. You have added something that detracts from my enjoyment of the piece and I’m not going to fave it.

There are a number of brilliant artists out there who I’m on the verge of unfollowing, simply because it irks me so much to see a tacky watermark (or worse, the default DA skidmark) ruining what would otherwise be a beautiful image.

Once upon a time....

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 26, 2015, 9:01 AM
Alex and Stripes were in fact together. they met just after he had become a zombie at 16 or so. He was the sweetest undead creature in all the land.

He had run into her one day after murdering and instantly fell for her. After he told her how pretty she was she took the time to hang our with him a few times before dating. 

When he was 17 she took him to meet her father. Her father blatently approved of Alex banging Stripes, leaving Al really confused but Stripes was happy anyway. 

When he was 22 he had adopted Lulu as his younger sister. After finding what Zalgo did to her he went to stripes for help to rebel against him. He tried to convince her but her obedience to her father was too great. 

After one swift argument he left her, leaving both him and her heartbroken. 

Now he is 24, the older brother to Rodger and Lucy. He is a heavy drinker, smoker and he has adopted a very assholish attitude toward everyone. He tried dating another girl but it wasn't the same as Stripes so they didn't last long.
