dA Compliments

30 more compliments sent in by wonderful members of the community!

:iconflyingheartsplz: :icondacompliments: :iconflyingheartsplz:

Join our group to get all the updates!

You are an amazing artist and one of my best friends on Da. You were one of the first people I talked to when I joined Da, back then you were an inspiration but now you help me continue to draw. Your drawings are always beautiful and they each have something special in them thats stands out from the rest. I hope you continue to do what you're doing and remember, if your feeling sad or hurt inside you can always talk. <3

There's a very special deviant everyone should know. HiddenLeafDragon is a good friend of mine, always has been and always will be. He's really funny, very sweet, and super nice :) He's one of those rare cool people with great skill and talent, and I think everyone should check out his page, because he's really worth the time.

Another deviant who seems to be a little sad lately is Toetag001 She doesn't use her account much anymore, but she's really in need of a cheer-up. She doesn't like attention, but she deserves it! :) She's a sweetheart and I just know that she'd find friends if some kind deviants were to say hello.

Love you both with all my heart!

WeirdAndLovely is an amazing friend to talk to and to have as company. I'm glad I met her through all of my other wonderful friends. 

I bloody love you.

happy-gurl is a great artist, and very nice person! She is a very good friend, and always caring towards others.:hug:
You are awesome!:dummy:

Your art, my friend, is AMAZING!

WyldWerewolf You've got the most amazing stories! Especially Athena. Trevor is so cute!
~Maybe a friend

LadyMortimus is a wonderful writer. Even though her profile seems offline, she is a caring soul who always gives special time and concern for her friends and dear ones. This is important because frankly, its rare to come across such a wonderful writer like her. Her works, are a breath of fresh air - all of them, in all their forms. A worthwhile writer in all honesty.

ShinyTheKitsune is perfect, she's funny, sweet, a great artist and friend; plus I bet she's beautiful irl x3 Our conversations are hilarious and also: Jeg er matchmaker som fikk dem sammen xDD We're together, forever and always will be in our world of space and the word yes while we drive around in our haunted mansion <333 Ly Shiny~ 

LadyLincoln is such an amazing person. I don't think I've ever met anyone with as much community spirit, and to cap it all off, she has such a strong beauty of heart. She is absolutely an inspiration and a role model.

otakuwolfi love you have a good day!!

I'm glad to have extraordinary friends like you: AvinaSkye, BlackVeiledBridesfan, yuzukipon, CookieMilkShake, and AruTeru. All of you were there when I needed it, and still are! Thanks guys. 

MLynnK You have so many beautiful photographs. Always thanking people for the favorites.That is so very kind when someone is loving your work

Midnight-Omen is a very kind and hyper friend she's always there for me and I've known her for over 4 years she's the bestest friend anyone could have we both love to fan girl and watch anime and shes fun to be around shes a great person and I hope everyone else enjoys her company as much as I do ;w;

AskCadense You're so nice, your art is amazing, and you are so much fun to RP with. From all the time I spend on dA, you are the only person who I can say is my best friend who I met online. I couldn't ask for a better friend, and I am so glad that I met you. <3

Hello deviantART lit community. I have a mission for you. I would like to create an infographic of the readers and writers on deviantART as well as provide a resource for helping the writers of deviantART understand their audience: who they are, what they like, what they want, and their opinions on dA lit. To do so, I have created an easy to complete survey that can be completed anonymously and can be found here:…

Who Reads dA Lit?

The results will be shared in about a month's time on May 18 as raw data for the community to analyze themselves. In the meantime, I would like to ask if you could complete the survey and spread the word to other deviantART members. It is anonymous.

Thank you for your time,

Banana Llama Plushies?

Sat Apr 19, 2014, 5:59 PM
So i've been tinkering away working on more MintShark stuff u wu/ (for anyone who doesnt know what mintshark is you can check the store here: )

So far it seems Banana Llama is one of the more popular characters-- which im glad cause hes probably my favourite ah hah = 7= <3

This fluff butt here:

Banana Llama by Little-Miss-Boxie

Now a project I'd love to take on in the future ; v; would be to get this little guy into a 9-10inch tall plush form for sale

though for something like that to happen, it'd only be if people were genuinely interested in getting one, and would most likely be done through kickstarter to raise the funds to send him into production . w./ <3

I'd love to have Apple Alpaca made as well and have them match as a set-- but plushes are extremely expensive investments @ w@; so for now it'd just be Banana LLama, and Apple will come along later if theres interest, or maybe even become an extended goal if the kickstarter is more successful then the funding goal.

Planning too that the Llamas bought through the kickstarter will come with an exclusive adoption paper, your adopted Llama will be given a number on that certificate too! so if you were the first to adopt one, you got Llama #1! :D

there will also be a lot of other packs filled with banana llama goodies for people that want to pledge more then just getting the plush!

But yes, so i guess my question is would you guys be interested in these, please let me know your thoughts in the comments ; v;/ and if theres some serious interest, i'll start looking into this over the next few weeks and months.

hope everyones doing well <3

#56 | Weekly Photography Fun!

Sat Apr 19, 2014, 10:02 AM
We are aware how inconvenient our Photography Games Nights can be, so we are bringing the Photography Games Night to you in the form of a weekly blog involving some good ol' photography fun. Some of you may recognise our photography games and some may not, but we all hope you will enjoy what we have in store for you!

This week, we would like to ask you to take part in our games and guess what the photographs below are. Many of you may recognise this as our 'Obscure Photo Game' in our Photography Games Night, which is exactly what is happening here, but in blog form instead!

...but first, let's reveal what last week's photographs were in order! :la:

Hook on Hanger | Rose Petal | Speaker | Inside Track on Rowing Shell | Part of Water Fountain

Congratulations to WorldWar-Tori for being the first to guess hanger, policegirl01 for rose petal, and SepticSkeptik for speaker and part of water fountain. You will each receive :points:, though it will take a bit of time for you to receive them. :clap:

The aim of the game... to guess each subject in the photograph correctly.

Please be very clear and specific when you tell us what you think these objects are in a reply to this blog. We do not want just the part of the object. We would like both the part of the object (what the photograph is showing), and the whole object (what the part is a part of/represents).

The first person to guess correctly will win themselves 10 :points:!

You are only allowed one guess for each photograph, so make it count!

Just reply to this blog with the corresponding number and what you think it is!

Presenting the photographs... :eager:






Deadline: Friday 25th April, Midnight PST

Thank you DinamiQ, Caitlynncobra, Kamal-Q, innerviki, Daemare for providing these photographs!

We are always looking for photographs to use, people to help shoot these photographs behind the scenes, game suggestions, ideas, improvements, etc.. If you think you can help us with anything like this (and we would gladly appreciate your help), please don't hesitate to send us a note!

If you have some spare :points: you'd like to donate to help us out, we'd very much appreciate your support there too. We will be grateful for any amount you can give here.

Good luck! If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us. :love:

Happy Easter!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 19, 2014, 5:41 AM

As you can see, I have just been able to change my username. C=

So, welcome to my next Giveaway!

And because it's Easter, we'll all go on a little egg hunt

I have hidden a bunch of differently colored eggs all over my profile. And it's your task to find them! 
(Yes, I got the PM because I thought it will be useful for hiding~)

Divide 1 by Robertpferd

Here are the rules:

How does it work?

1)  First of all- Tell me in this journal if you want to join. This way I know from whom I have to expect messages and I can organize them more easily.
That's all. No need to watch me, no need to fave or to share this. Only if you want to.
2) If you find an egg (or more at once), then send me a Note in which you describe the position of where you found the egg and/or make a screenshot of it. (screenshots would be preferred but are not necessary)
3) Do NOT tell the others where you found the egg! This would ruin the fun part. For the same reason, any visible comments on this journal or on my profile telling me where you found the egg will be hidden and ignored.
4) The position of the eggs may change every now and then, so be careful! If you send me a note with an outdated egg position, it won't count. But of course I'll inform you if that's the case.
5) Don't eat any of the eggs before this event ends!

Divide 1 by Robertpferd

How do I win?

-The person who found the most eggs within the period of today, April 19th until April 23rd 2014 23:59 CET will be the winner!
-If two people have found the same amount of eggs, the one whose note reached me earlier wins.
-But how many eggs are there? That's a secret! Though each egg will only count once!
-Everyone who has been watching me before I posted this journal will automatically have one egg more  in their basket. Let's say, you already found it. :meow:
iATTENCÍON! Any eggs seen on this journal do NOT count!
I thought I'd add this before everyone goes crazy with counting. xD

Divide 1 by Robertpferd

What are the prizes?

The person with the most eggs will either get 300:points: OR  a one-month Premium membership (if you don't have one already), so that you can change your username too. (tell me your preference)
You will also get to choose up to 3 surprise eggs from this adoptable sheet.Surprise Easter Egg Adoptable Giveaway! by Meadowind

~Second place~
The person with the second most eggs will get 80:points:
You will also get to choose up to 2 surprise eggs from the adoptable sheet above.

~Last but not least~
Awww you didn't collect as many eggs as the others, but you did well!  As a little prize, you may have one egg from the adoptable sheet above. BUT, unlike for the others, it won't be a surprise for you! I'll show you the revealed adoptables and you may take what you like most~
You'll also get to pick first! So don't be sad. C=
(Optionally, you could have any other open adoptable in my gallery instead.)

The remaining eggs from the adoptable sheet will randomly be given to everyone else who entered, even if you found no eggs or didn't take part in collecting at all.


EVERYONE WILL GET A LLAMA! (If I didn't give you one already) :la:

If you do not want any of your prizes, then tell me or give it away to someone else and let me know.

I reserve the right to change the prizes, if needed. (e.g if not enough people entered to fill in the places)


Any questions? Ask!

That's it, have fun searching!

It's been a weird day... Especially with this 'girl' in my house running around... I have NO idea who she is or might be.. then I felt breathing down my back it sent chills running down my back, I didn't dare turn around, but I wanted to so badly... I could hear 'Giggling?'. "H-hello t-there..." I heard a girl whisper in my ear. my body totally froze as my eyes widened, I heard her back up a few steps... I ran out of my room swung open the door and ran down the stairs like there's no tomorrow... "W-what?!" I said as I was shocked and terrified there was some red liquid on the walls spelling: THE SHADOWS ARE COMING... then I heard that... creepy little girl giggle again, she walked down the hallway now what seemed like a giggle turned to a psychotic laugh.. I quickly grabbed something sharp all I could find was a flipping pocket knife, the girl pinned me down but I kicked her off running into the woods, the girl kept following me, "what does that creepy thing want with me?!" I whispered.. Then before I knew it that... 'thing' was in front of me... the girl wore: Black hoodie, short black jeans, high top runner one was white and one was black, black and white side ways belt holding.. what looked like a sledgehammer a scapel and an axe... and that freaken mask ugh! that thing creeped me out... it was a white mask with black around the eye holes with a regulator in the left eye hole and a pocket watch in the right.. she had black-ish brown hair with white tips. she was the most freakiest little girl I've ever seen in my life! I backed up, the girl's head twitched, as she ran right at me grabbing her sledgehammer and pinning me down, "T-the S-shadows A-are C-coming..." The girl laughed psychotically and lunged the sledgehammer to my face.... "I-I'm B-Brianna..." The girl said as she watched my face gush out blood...

Character Brianna belongs to Me! :33
sooo when i first went into the library i started going through the rows like it was a maze then as soon as i hit a corner i ran into a person about my age and we both fell down and we were wearing the same shirt!!! i stayed silent and ran off while he followed me through the entire library like it was a game of cat and mouse!!! XD XD i eventually got away lol
