CLOSED (payouts pending)

I ran out of points and for some reason I can't buy new points at the moment... I'll pay you as soon as I can. Promised...

Step 1) Favorite this journal
Step 2) Share this journal
Step 3) I'll give you a random amount of points (as soon as I see it)

Wow, suddenly there's so many people... I wonder why... :XD: Anyway, I have to pause this, because otherwise I'll have enough to do for the next few months, I can barely keep up with the payments.

If you haven't received your points yet - wait. I'm working on it...

I can not buy points (for whatever reason) at the moment... sooo, you'll have to wait a bit more... I'm sorry....

Later today I have to leave my home, and I'll be back on Wednesday evening I hope. I'll continue the payouts as soon as possible. I promise...

If you want more points:
Win points!Yep, more points incoming...
This time, I want you to draw my name. (Either Jen or Jen the Void)
And, of course, post it in the comments below...
(If you wonder how I got this idea - I had to come up with something very simple :shrug:)
You don't have to do it fancy or big or something... you also don't have to be an artist or anything...
(For those who can't draw; it's enough if you open up paint and draw black sticks on a white background.. ^^)
I'll pay in steps, depending on how much effort you have given...
So if you do a 10 second thing, expect a point...
If you a bit more, expect 5 points...
The more effort, the more points... (5, 10, 15, ...)
This will be closed on Friday... during the day, randomly...
I'll start with the payments once I'm done with the remaining payouts from my giveaway...
(For your information, I'll leave my home today and come back on Wednesday evening (I hope), and until then I won't be able to access the internet or anything...)

Trafalgar  by Madam-Shyarly
I've seen a lot of people claim they know what "good art" is or isn't, so I I'll just add my two cents.

I spent a very long time trying to make my own art more realistic (never got close to realism, but there was an attempt) but then I realized I didn't even like realistic art and the only reason I was trying to achieve it was because others had told me that's what I should strive for.

It's not that I think realistic art is bad or that other people are wrong for liking it. I can most certainly see the appeal of it. It's simply that I'm personally not that interested in it. When I see realistic art I tend to not notice the work put into it. It's more like a photo to me, even if it includes a lot of fantastical elements. Again, that's what a lot of people like about it, and that's great. I just happen to like when a drawing is unapologetic about being a drawing, like the styles of Bjørn Wiinblad and Tove Jansson.

There are only two things I personally think are important to learn when drawing: Body proportions (how long are arms compared to the body, how long are legs when folded up, how far are eyes from each other and so on) and perspective (how much smaller does an object get the further it moves away and so on).

Those things will help your art look more balanced, even when you develop your own style and maybe decides that you like your characters to have short legs and arms. Subconsciously you'll keep those things in mind and know how to make it all work together. Then you can decide for yourself what you think is important to your art, like light and shadow, or how fabric works, or whatever you want.

Again, just my personal philosophy on the subject of art. I like to keep the rules simple and let people do their own thing. We get more interesting styles that way.

5000 Points Giveaway! CLOSED

Thu May 7, 2015, 6:17 PM

No more entries after Sparkle-Bliss will be counted. This is now CLOSED

I will now proceed to give out numbers to those awaiting them.

It has come to my attention that some people are using two month old accounts or new accounts to enter. I check each profile so if you only have things to do with point raffles and such I will ignore your number should it turn out to be the winner. So if I give a number to someone trying to pull that crap I'll ignore their number.

I decided I simply don't need so many points so I'm gonna give them away. ^^ This is my first time doing one of these. There will be one winner who gets the 5000 points.

How to enter:
  • Be a watcher of mine
  • Favourite this journal.
  • Advertise this giveaway through a journal or poll.
  • Comment on this confirming you've done all three and link me to the journal or poll you made about it.
The winner will be chosen through No more people will be allowed to join after 13/05 Dublin GMT. I will reply to you with your number if you have followed the instructions correctly. 

The winner will be announced a day or two after it has ended. I may need to give people their numbers so once I've given them out I'll do

If chooses your number I will check your page to make sure you're a watcher. If you've unwatched in that time I'll instead regenerate a new winner.


Yes anyone may enter unless they're blacklisted in which case they are already aware and shouldn't want to enter anyway! Also MAKE SURE you SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY TO THE GROUP and make sure you read the species rules pages please please please I've had so many chimes submitted without an eye etc please just read this WHOLE JOURNAL and also the species pages!

Time for the second and PROBABLY FINAL Lucky Chime MYO contest!
since many schools are not out yet, there's a tiny tiny chance I will have a small like 3-day contest at the end of summer- don't count on it though!
