Are highly intelligent or very talented people better able to hide their misery from loved ones, thus making it all the harder to “read” them and help them?

300 point lottery!

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 29, 2014, 3:33 PM

Hello everyone, this will be a short journal :D
I am giving away 300 points in this lottery and here's what you have to do to enter:

+fav this journal :D that's it
-winner will be announced in 2 days :la: 

I will use to pick a number from 1 to the number of favs my journal has at the time, and then the winner is the person who's number corresponds (in the fav section of the journal you will notice favs are counted when you click on 'who')

I will be making a series of lotteries to celebrate my art book, which will be printed in a limited number and you can only get it until September 20 :D

So until September 20 i will also make point lotteries :D So there will be more chances of winning. Also the winner of the previous lotteries are not eligible to win a second time (although it's highly unlikely for the same person to win twice
I might give away a free art book copy but that depends if i get many orders or not ^^

So, check out my art book here:

Fixed Form Fiesta II - Poll Poetry

Fri Aug 29, 2014, 10:10 AM
Hi deviantART writers!

I have decided I will be hosting very small contests periodically to promote fun, outrageous, and amusing fixed forms of poetry to show that forms in poetry are not stiff, old, or broken. Along with the entertainment of writing an enjoyable form of poetry, there will be prizes. The catch? These contests will only be held every time my donation pool breaks a 2000 point increment. We've broken that second benchmark and it is time for a second fiesta for a fixed form.

There are a slew of intensive contests booked from September through to October, so I will be saving jswebb's nested villanelle poetry form for another fiesta. This time, we will be doing something that requires a bit more... randomness and cooperation.  We will be doing Poll Poetry.

What is Poll Poetry?

Poll Poetry is a poem where each line in a poem is a voting option in a poll or survey. The results from voters then rearrange the lines from most voted to least voted to give the poem its new order of lines. This allows the writer to think outside the box and forces them to adjust to unexpected results when writing the final poem. It's all part of the fun!

You might be thinking that only premium members can post polls, and this is true. Because of this, I am asking everybody to use the following site to create their poll for their poem.

Follow them

:bulletblue: You must use poll-maker to create your poll.

:bulletblue: Poll Poems must have be between 8-16 lines, meaning a minimum of 8 poll options to vote on or a maximum of 16.

:bulletblue: You are free to use whatever options the site allows (the 'other' option and allowing voters to select multiple options for example) but your results must be visible to everybody.

:bulletblue: Your poll must be up for at least 24 hours and have 8 responses from people besides yourself before you may compose your poem based on the order of responses. However, you can wait longer and have as many more people than that vote as you'd like. Be sure to promote your poll wherever you can, anywhere and everywhere, even here to make sure this happens!

:bulletblue: For this contest, a line of poetry is considered at least 4 words or more.

:bulletblue: You are allowed to adjust the beginning or ending of a line of poetry, to make it fit to your wishes but the original line itself must remain mostly intact.

:bulletblue: You can only submit one entry for the contest, but you may make as many different polls to base your poem on as you like.

:bulletblue: Please take a screenshot, or at the very least, a tally of the votes of your results at the time of your writing of your poem. Post your written piece as a literature deviation and note your screenshot or vote tally, your literature deviation and the link to your poll to myself, Nichrysalis. You get one entry, make it count. I will be collecting the entries here:…

:bulletblue: This contest will be closed to entries Sunday the 14th of September 11:59 PM CST.

Judging will be done by myself and TwilightPoetess. Entries will be judged by two qualities: their creativity and the final poem.


As always with the fixed form fiestas, the prize pools aren't necessarily large, but tend to grow with donations over time. If you would like to donate a prize, comment below!

First Place
800 points, custom origami book and feature from Nichrysalis

Second Place
600 points and feature from Nichrysalis

Third Place
400 points and feature from Nichrysalis

All participants
Feature from Nichrysalis

Questions or comments? Not sure your poll fits the rules? Just ask. Make sure to :+fav: the article and share with others. The more the merrier! Good luck!

Meet artist and character designer extraordinaire, Gilang Andrian!

Good morning, everyone!

We’re gaining some serious momentum as our contest officially launches NEXT WEEK! Where does the time go? Haha!

We’re excited to have a short interview with the fabulous talent behind the Fran Kenstein designs! This guy is seriously a genius so enjoy:
First up—tell us a little about yourself!

Hello! My name is Gilang Andrian (alchemaniac), and I am a freelance artist based in Singapore for about a year now. I really love drawing, and I never stop trying to explore other techniques and styles!
You’re a completely digital artist, correct? What are your “tools of choice” digitally?

Yes! I can’t really draw well on paper, maybe because of the super-powerful Ctrl+Z feature. :P I have tried several programs like Corel Painter, Paint Tool SAI, Clip Studio Paint, but the program that I like the most is Adobe Photoshop CS5. And I am using my Intuos 5 drawing tablet.
How did you come to be involved with this project? Were you aware of Madefire beforehand?

YES! I was shown by my classmate, around a year ago, and was completely amazed because I think to have a moving comic book is a really cool idea! So, I was very excited when Ben invited me to join one of Madefire’s projects.

Today’s designs by Gilang are an interesting group as we get a first look at Fran’s attempts at creating the perfect boyfriend:

Was it hard creating designs for humans assembled from pieces of other people?

I think it was easier (and fun) to create them rather than normal humans, because you can try and experiment with their sizes and proportion.
You graduated University last year, correct? How crucial do you feel it is for an artist to have a school degree to find work and excel?

Correct. I finished with a diploma in Animation. In my opinion, it’s not that crucial. It will be good if you attend an art school, since you can make friends and connections and learn new stuff. But in the end, it’s the portfolio that matters.
What are your plans for the future? Any chance you’ll be creating any stories—or Motion Books—of your own?

My plan for the future is to get more interesting projects, and become a successful artist! I am not really good (and shy) at storytelling, so not at the moment! If I got a really cool idea, maybe I will make one in the future.
What are your plans for the future? Any chance you’ll be creating any stories—or Motion Books—of your own?

I really like He’s the main inspiration for my art, then,,,, and

Thanks to Gilang for letting us pick his brain! Let’s end the week on an exciting note—we’re proud to announce our next judge:

Dustin Nguyen (duss005)

Dustin’s a creative and innovative veteran of the American comic book industry having worked on just about every character DC Comics has to offer (check out his amazing Li’l Gotham series!) and recently announced a creator-owned book at Image that we’re all dying to read.

It's getting close to the zero hour, so look out for our final Journal before the contest begins!

Hey, guys! Sorry for not finishing the Prince Double D's "Let it glow", I will do it soon when I have time ^^;


After I listened to the song "This Day Aria" by My Little Pony, I decided to make this video, since I saw so much videos with characters like from Sonic, Disney, Teen Titans... so I decided to do with Legend of Zelda! :) Since I love ZeLink, I decided to make Link as Shining Armor, Ghirahim as King Metamorphis (I spelled it wrong :P) and Zelda as Princess Cadence! Some of the lyrics, I meant, ONE lyric I corrected are "Princess Cadence", because this is from MLP.... Eyup! I hope you like it! ;D
