Okay, so I don't have a huge amount of points right now, but I'll still get a raffle going...

So please don't watch me just for a raffle like this. I still greatly appreciate every single watcher, so if you like my art, feel free to watch me, though smile 


1st: 500 Points
2nd: 100 Points + Fullbody/Transparent background drawing of your OC*
3rd: Chibi drawing of your OC*

*Only animals or fantasy creatures

In order to participate...

+ fave this Journal Entry +fav 
+ tag at least five other deviants in a comment
+ post a link / dA thumb of whichever of my deviations is your favorite

Want an additional chance?
If you tag 10 or more fellow deviants in your comment, you'll earn an extra entry! 

[The winners will be decided using]

Deadline: July 14th, Midnight CET

Fucking stop

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 4, 2015, 3:00 PM

Ive had two friends leave in the past couple days because 
Yet again
Their name tag says "hi my name is--- and im a white knight"
Fucking stop
Its utterly disgusting and immature 
You may think you're doing some sort of justice but you're not.

Suddenly a popular artist makes a character lets say its a black sheep with white hooves 

Because that popular artist made that one black sheep
Everyone who's made one before that obviously doesnt exist lmao
But someone makes a black sheep character after the popular artist did and suddenly they're copying them. Please fucking stop
No ones an original fucking snowflake 
Everything has been done before millions of times
Your version of something isnt the only version
So just because you watch someone and see them as an idol
Doesnt mean you get to go around barking at people bc ur precious bby god like person
Made a red tiger w ow
Wit h stripe s
Super w ow
A nd its so original bc no one else has EVER
in the history of DA
Made a TIGER character
N w that they made a replica of a tigr 
No one else cn ever make one bc they're copying!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you guys know all tigers have stripes right lmao
And all tiger characters also have stripes.
So i dont care if you make your tiger every color of the rainbow 
No one is copyong anything 
Its a fucking tiger
Please take the holy stick out of your ass you seem to think you have bc you have more than 3,000
Watchers and get on with your life.

Its amazing how popular people can get away with anything.
Lmao im sorry and i mean no harm but
Popular people can take a cat
And take the nose off the cat
Turn it into a species 
And wont get any shit about it
Ive done the same shit but i realized it and fucking sold it off the second i could
Im not original lmao
Far from it
And im.not saying im an exception 

Ive seen popular people take a dog and add a scarf and get no shit for it
Ive seen popular people make literal copies of disney characters and turn them into auctions
Make hundreds on it
And get away with it

And im really sorry but
For example:
Mario cinnadog????
Cheshire cat sushi dog??
Slenderman cinna?
They're wonderful designs they are
But if some kid with 10 watchers gets told to die and leaves da for making an adopt that looks like rainbow dash because they need money for something like idk
Fucking food

And you dont get called out on that shit do you fucking see whats wrong here?
Please fucking stop.

Nations Of The World - AMERICA

Sat Jul 4, 2015, 11:27 AM

Each country has its specificity, but certainly there are things that some peoples can boast that are better.
Speaking of things that are no better nowhere else than in the United States of America, it is appropriate to recall the unique places that this country has, and the people here.
Following a study, we will see ten things in which Americans excel.:icontruesmiles:

Exuberant Greetings

"Ahoy!", "Aloha!" "Hey!" "Hola!", "Howdy!" "Hiya!" "Ho there!" "Well, look who it is!" "What's happenin '?! "" 'Sup! "" Yo! "or "Hello!" are just some of the greetings that you may experience when you meet an American.
The variety and enthusiasm of these greetings come from friendly character that some Europeans may find it burdensome, but others find it charming and it is a very pleasant surprise. Either you pass thru a hotel, or through a store in which you want to buy a pair of shoes or you just want to walk, no chance to
 escape without such a cheerful greeting.

Given that spans so many square kilometers, that has roads that cross it from one end to the other and has a history behind the evolution of the automobile, the US  can not but excel in terms of trips, the famous "road trips ".
Whether you want 
to cross Texas, or you go through Nebraska and Indiana, you definitely will have many things to admire, in a car trip for a few days.

Even if it gets its name from an English city, derby is still one of the things that Americans rightly
assigns them.That's because since the 50s, the United States organizes all sorts of competitions, from horse races and reaching to cars racing sports competitions nowadays.

We could say that the Germans are the best in terms of beer, but what sets Americans apart from the rest of the nations which consuming beer, is mode and bottling quality.
In addition, the US is the country that has the highest number of breweries in the world.

USA is the country where we can find something from almost every culture of the world and most diverse landscapes and varied climate.
From beaches that stretch from Cape Cod up in Kaanapali, to the Rockies and the Appalachian, from arid deserts to green forests, the United States has it all.
And if we talk about diversity, we can not  mention the ethnicity of. Despite restrictive immigration policy, the United States is one of the most heterogeneous in terms of ethnic peoples.

The many geological formations make the landscape of USA, one of the most diverse on our planet.
Deep and narrow valleys surrounded by high walls of rock are the delight of millions of tourists from around the world.

United States can boast that they have not only the Yellowstone, the first national park in the world, but other 400 protected areas.
In total, it is almost 340,000 square kilometers of protected areas that include volcanoes, glaciers, fjords, geysers, plates or dunes.

The Cuisine

American gastronomic universe is almost as diverse as the rest of cultures that come together in this country.
However, Americans have the merit to
reinvented  the specific dishes of other countries, but also to have memorable desserts that taste buds will not easily forget, such as cupcakes.

Most countries have one national sport, but Americans have at least three or four.
If they were to leave the hockey to Canadians, Americans remained with three specific sports: baseball, American football and basketball.

Baseball by Trippy4U
Defense Vs Offense by Trippy4U Basketball III by Trippy4U Third And Goal by Trippy4U


It's not just about the worldwide success serials or Oscar films, but the merit of being the source of viral videos on the Internet, such as those with Harlem Shake or sisters Kardashian.

It's really hard to describe a country and a nation in a few words on a page, maybe is funny and interesting to
follow studies which show to you one point of view or another and help you to remember some things you already know, or to learn other things you never heard about before, but what really describe a country and a nation is the mark which has left in the history of the world.

Welcome to the first ever Kuniku MYO contest! It's finally here!! AAAHHHHHH!!! I've been so excited about this for so long, and I can't wait to see the Kuniku everybody comes up with!! <33
Please make sure you READ THE RULES THOROUGHLY and also READ THE WEEBLY!
>>> <<<

START DATE: Right now! (4th July, GMT+8hrs)
END DATE: 2nd of August, 8pm, GMT+8hrs

-Design a Kuniku (following the guides found on the weebly linked above) and submit an image of it into the MYO folder in the group, Kuniku-Sanctum .
-Write a short bio for your Kuniku (optional).
-You don't need to be a member to submit, but it's highly recommended you join the group!

-Entries MUST be your own art. You cannot trace, use a base, or have someone else draw it for you.
-Entries must be submitted to the folder before the deadline.
-You may only submit one image for each of your separate entries.
-Anyone is free to enter.
-You must state in the description that it is an entry for this contest, and that Kuniku are a closed species by kunipup
-Entries must abide by the rarity restrictions outlined in the weebly. If your design is breaking this rule, I will let you know and you will have the chance to fix it and resubmit it.

-Judging will be carried out by me (I may ask for help from close friends who aren't participating in the contest)
-Entries will be judged on: colour use, individuality, creativity, and character! Character is possibly the most important part. Don't worry if you feel your art isn't up to par, you may still win because of the great character you've developed!

-You may include any accessories on your Kuniku, as long as they fit with the world (nothing technologically advanced) and DO NOT include weapons or armor (which are only attainable through the group).
-You may not include any animal familiars, as these are attainable through the group.
-All entries may use common traits.

-If you advertise this journal in a journal or a poll and link to it in the comment section here you will unlock UNLIMITED UNCOMMON TRAITS. You may use as many uncommon traits as you would like across both your entries.
-If five separate people submit entries saying in the description that you referred them, link to those entries in the comment section here and you can unlock either:
A: ONE RARE TRAIT to use on ONE of your entries
B: Turning ONE of your entries into either an air or aquatic Kuniku.
***UPDATE***-Alternatively, you may agree to pay an additional fee (+$10) to unlock EITHER 1 rare trait for 1 of your entries, OR turning 1 of your entries into an air or aquatic kuniku. This fee is only payable in USD, no points. E.g; if you won your Kuniku design, you would still need to pay the $10 fee, and if you didn't win and wanted to make the design official the fee would be $30. If you choose to use this method you must state on the description of your entry that you will pay the extra fee if you decide to keep the design.

-There will be five 'top tier' winners chosen, who will receive: a custom weapon or armor piece for their winning entry, 10 coins (the group currency, enough to purchase a basic level familiar), a chibi of their winning entry in the style of this journal's header, and their winning entry will be made into an official Kuniku for free.
-There will be 'second tier' winners chosen, who will receive their winning design as an official Kuniku for free. The number of second tier winners depends on the number of entries, and will likely be about 1 in 5 for every entry.

-For those who do not place in the top or second tiers, you will be able to purchase your design at the end of the event.
-Kuniku with ALL COMMON traits will cost $10, or 1000 points.
-Kuniku with UNCOMMON traits will cost $15, or 1500 points.
-Kuniku with a RARE trait, or Kuniku that are a SUBSPECIES will cost $20, or 2000 points.
-You will have 15 days to purchase your design.
-You will not be allowed to purchase other people's designs for yourself, even if they don't plan to purchase them.
-You will however be allowed to pay for a friend to keep their own design, if your friend can't afford to themselves.

AND HAVE FUN!! Kuniku can have all sorts of body sizes, fur length/textures, colours, markings etc so get creative!

I think that's everything! If you have absolutely any questions, whether it be about the rules, your potential design, or the Kuniku world- feel free to either leave a comment on this journal or even send me a note and I'll get back to you ASAP! <33

Artist talk: fnaf2 is the worst in the series

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 4, 2015, 10:46 AM
Hobbyist Digital Artist

CSS Skin

seems a lot of people don't like fnaf2 for this reason " too much to keep track of "

all I can say to that comment is " go big or go the fuck home you whippersnappers. "

honestly thats why I love 2, it doesn't bullshit with you, if you fuck up its your own damn fault. :Y

I honestly hated fnaf3 because it did a lot of dumb cheap things that annoyed me too badly. Only good thing coming out of fnaf3 was just springtrap himself and thats about it. 

I love 2 for a lot of things:

1. best character designs, the toys are so cute they are borderline creepy, and the withered are scary but not over the top ( looking at you fnaf4 )

2. actual challenge

3. better executed with telling the back story

4. LOVEEEE the custom night challenge ideas, gives me more reason to play it. 

edit: plus I already told you guys, I hate fnaf3 and don't really care much for fnaf1 (I still respect fnaf1 though since it really was unique at the time )

so in short: for those who say its too much to keep track of v
