Art Book pre-orders + 300 pt lottery

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 21, 2014, 8:57 AM


About the point lottery:


To join the lottery all you have to do is +fav this journal. In 48 hours i wil use a randomizer to randomly pick a number from 1 to how many favs this journal got and the deviant who's name corresponds to that number will win 300 points :D :la:

About the Art Book:


Aaaaaaaand i am officially announcing that i opened pre-orders for my art book :D:D
The pre-order stage serves also as an order stage, it's from August 20 2014 to September 20 2014, and it's the only time you can buy my art book. It won't be available in any online store. I will keep 30-50 books to sell at Romanian conventions which are Nijikon, Comic Con and Otaku festival. So if you're romanian or intend to go to these convention then that's the only other time you can buy my art book :D
Actually this is where the idea to make an art book came from in the first place. To have something that sums up my work since i started digital art, at my stand at conventions :la: For me this art book has so much meaning because when i started digital art 4 year ago, i kind of sucked at it! And i incorporated some drawing in the art book that are as old as 2010 because they were important steps for me as an artist and i was very proud of them at the time, and i think they still hold artistic value today :D
Another important thing for me was the artists i got to know during this time, i even got to be friends with my idols, i can't even believe how that even happened! And they even agreed to have one of their works feature in my art book ;u; 
So here is a list of the amazing artists who have guest spots :iconblix-it: :iconerebun: :icondepinz: :iconvisualizemyname: :icongasara: :iconfaqy: :icontenshi-no-hikari: :icontga-tsurugi: :iconshichigoro756: :iconkahookashii: :iconsandara: :iconred-priest-usada: :iconrynisyou: :icondamaimikaz: :iconastavielze: :icontocatchad: :iconneobirdy:
I will make a series of features in the following weeks to introduce you to them individually, thoigh you probably know them already :D

Art book technical info:

-Price is $40 + Shipping (add $5 for Europe and $10 for any continent outside Europe)
-114 pages full color
-A4 size
-hard cover (awesome, i know)
-digital art, traditional art and realism sections
-be ware, the art book also contains magical fairy dust C:

HOW TO ORDER:

-send me a note with your name and address (don't forget to write the country and postal code) and i'll give you my paypal email, it's as simple as that :D
-you can also choose to have me sign it for someone else, or not for your username but your real name or another nickname :D But if you don't mention anything about it, i will sign it for your dA username. And everyone gets a signed art book :la:


Here are a few images of the art book:

Art Book Pre-orders by Yuuza

Having an art book was one of my goals, and now i can scratch it off my goal list :la:

Peace out :iconmuahplz:




INTRODUCTION


Missing Halloween, an animation about two kids trick or treating, was previewed last year on Youtube:

However, the deadline was missed and was decided to remain its production on hold.
But not anymore, of course! Halloween is coming soon after all!


WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?


Are you looking forward to watching Missing Halloween?
Do you design your own characters?
Would you like to help with Missing Halloween's production?
Then this is your chance!!!

You can get your design featured in the animation Missing Halloween!


HOW???


In the animation, there's a part of the story where it features locals in costume giving candies to the two main kids.
This is where you come in!
I decided that instead of randomly designing these people, I can give my fans the opportunity to have their designs featured in the animation!
And if there are too many designs contributed, I can use the others as kids who Trick or Treat in the background!


SUBMISSION


Submit your own original designed character to the director himself: Mikeinel via note here in DeviantArt. (Possibly with a subject title: "Missing Halloween Submission")
And get a chance to have your design, re-rendered into the animation's cute-and-cartoony art style, appear in Missing Halloween!


REQUIREMENTS


-It could be an existing design you created before, even long ago, or a new one you made specifically for this contest!
-Only one design can be submitted per artist.
-The character must be a regular human. (Added) He/she can have additional parts such as animal ears, tail, wings, etc.
-Of course, you should be the owner of the character design.
-The character should not directly be based on any other existing designs.
-No nudity, gore, or anything that can be found offensive to most people.


SCHEDULE


August 23 (my B-day lol) to August 31:
Accepting of designs.

September 1:
Announcement of the submitted character designs.

September 1 to September 14:
Judging, sorting, and possibly re-rendered into Missing Halloween's art style.

September 15:
Announcement of the designs to get in the animation!


JUDGING


The submissions will be judged and sorted by the director himself!

The top 5 best designs will have the following:
Their character will be featured as one of the young adults giving candies to the kids, fully animated!
Their name put in the credits as "Additional Character Design"

The next 10 (or more) best designs will have the following:
Their character will be featured as one of the many kids in the background, Trick or Treating!
Their name put in the credits under "Character Design Contribution"


ALTERATION


In order for the character design to fit in the animation, your submission will have to be altered to accommodate the art-style and content, (Added) making the fantasy-like parts into costume. We're talking about kids in costumes, after all!
Example: Extended body parts such as animal ears, tail, wings, etc. will be redesigned into costume accessories.

Altering/redesigning will be done by the director himself.

Here are some visual examples:



AGREEMENT


By submitting your design to the project, you'll have to agree to the following:
-If your submission gets accepted to be featured in the animation, you will automatically give permission to let your design be used in the animation.
-(Added) The design you submitted still belongs to you, of course. You may use it to however you like for other purposes, it's your creation after all.
-The re-imagined design will be final and may not be edited when the animation is done.
-No additional rewards, payments, or requests can be made at any time, unless stated otherwise by the director.

-The schedule may possibly be changed at anytime by the director, depending on various situations. (I do hope it doesn't)


FINAL NOTE


If ever you wish to submit a design, then let me just say this in advance: THANK YOU!!! Thank you for helping out on this project!
Missing Halloween may not be a masterpiece, but rest assured, it'll be longer than Draw with Me.
It will be released for free only on Youtube, in hopes that this will be my next animation that isn't an April Fools or job commission~
I hope people around the world will enjoy watching it when it's done!


ON A SIDE NOTE:
To the people who have been reserved in my commission page, don't worry, you are not forgotten. But sadly, I have to give priority to other things at the moment. (And this could take months) Thank you for understanding.
I've reached 4k watchers a few days ago and thought about making a small raffle as appreciation for my watchers up until now
Sorry it's only running for two days bcuz i have quite a lot to do...

anyways! GOOD LUCK TO ANYONE INTERESTED!!!


Time: 10:50 pm AUG 21~ 10:50 pm AUG 23 (Taiwan time UTC+8:00)

1) you must be a watcher since AUG 21, 2014or before that

Part 2 Tribute to Nick

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 21, 2014, 11:52 AM






Whether you knew him well, or were just an acquaintance, it did not matter, at least to him it didn't, as he treated everyone with the same love and respect.  There is no doubt, that he touched the lives of many, a fact he was always surprised about.  It humbled him, and he was truly grateful for the friends he has met here.

It is that rarest of people, who could reach over mountains and oceans and touch all of our hearts.  From every corner of the globe, to every walk of life, no matter your ethnic background, your political or religious views, no matter the color of your skin, or even if you spoke English, it did not matter to him, as he considered you all friends, and many, a part of his family.

He was your confidant, your mentor, your biggest supporter, your shoulder to cry on, your voice of reason and logic, and your cherished friend. He was all of those, to all of you, a person you could always count on, to always be there.  He would listen to all of you, with every concern or problem you had, he would listen, giving 100% of himself to making you feel better.  It did not matter if it was art related or personal, you could always count on him to be there.

Here is a collection of beautiful works dedicated to Nick :iconshedboy68:
He was a great friend to us all and he will be surely missed :heart:
He inspired us, encouraged us and supported us to be great.
RIP Nick xoxo

Stars have birthdays.Hey people. I hope you're enjoying your weekend, as much as you can. Today is a special day,and I am not talking about the weather(damn it's so hot outside,I can fry eggs on my car,if I had a car) I am talking about the people who are born today. Happy Birthday for everyone , but I feel like this is not everything I want to say.  Because today, It's Nick birthday :heart: :heart: :iconshedboy68:
... And I heard so many things about my dead grandma,when it was her birthday, people keep telling me  that is a waste of time to celebrate for her.
No,this is not a waste of time. This will never be. Everybody deserves a  little birthday party,a little birthday gift, no matter where s/he is,no matter what s/he is doing.
And today,more than never,our Nick deserves everything, no matter if we can't see him,because he can see us. And this is so important.He died before his birthday to come,and this is heartbreaking, but our relationship with him is still the same. He still loves us,
  Nick Stone- dedication poemA gentlemen cannot explain your kindness,
A smile as bright as yours cannot hide,
Hide behind the darkest clouds,
Like a star you glow in darkness,
Digital art was your golden star,
Excellent at it, it was your hearts desire,
Nothing could stop you from,
Making a masterpiece,
Your honestly could bring out,
The true colours in people,
Showing who was worth,
Your precious time,
While you may be gone,
You will be remembered,
For your charming skills,
And breath taking art,
We will keep your,
Legacy of art alive,
Keeping you alive in,
Our memories will make,
You stay in our hearts,
A little while longer,
Goodbye and let your soul,
Protect those who need,
Your comforting presence.
