Aim: Paint deviantART gold and raise awareness about Childhood Cancer.

September marks Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in the UK, US and many other countries worldwide. During this month, help to paint deviantART gold in the name of raising awareness.

:groups: PaintdAGold was founded by pixiepot to promote the Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. You'll find great ideas and resources to help the cause as well. :heart:


Why you should help paint dA goldIf you haven't heard already, I am embarking on a project this September to paint deviantART gold in the name of raising awareness for Childhood Cancer. To find out how you can join in, click here.
Each day, an average of seven children die because of childhood cancer and around 1,600 children under the age of 15 are diagnosed with cancer each year in the UK alone and approximately 13,400 children under the age of 19 are diagnosed with cancer in the US each year. Despite these statistics, The National Cancer Institute devotes just 4% of it's budget to pediatric cancer.
More children are lost to cancer in the U.S. than any other disease—in fact, more than many other childhood diseases combined.
It is true that there are more adults diagnosed with cancer than children - the reason that governments and foundations fund more research for adult cancers - yet, on average, <b>

  Christmas Cheer 2014 ContestLast year our Christmas Cheer contest had a great turnout, and looking back, I wished we could have given more prizes! So this year, rather than trying to grant a bunch of wishes off the list and use up all of the group's funds. We are upping the prizes and amount of winners for the contest.

  The Illuminated World ContestStock & Resources
The Challenge
Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig

"The darkness took away everything she ever cared about and all that she fought for. Beaten, broken, and filled with great despair she was dragged through the conquered city to the feet of Lord Nilogen. He smirked wickedly down at the once so proud warrior now too filled with shame to even look him in the eye. He let out a dark chuckle before spreading his arms dramatically to the crowd of terrified townsfolk and speaking in a booming voice..."
"Granna! Why are you stopping! We want to hear the rest!" ,one of the little children exclaimed while bouncing in their spot around the old wizened woman's feet. They were eager to listen to more of the story as was the other six children. All wide eyed while listening to the tale. The woman smiled and leaning back in the large comfy chair she shifted her slightly grayed reddish wings. Her old hands shaking a bit as she rubbed her chin as if thinking.

  Advanced Quest: Nora    Nora sat alone in the City Center Library. She had a book with brown binding in front of her, many of the pages yellowed with wear and age. Time had left it's impression on the library, and it was a heavy weight. Nora didn't mind though. She flipped through the books' pages, reading each paragraph carefully. When she stumbled upon a world she didn't know, which was rare, she would flip open a dictionary next to her and look up the word, and then get caught in the reading and end up reading a few pages of the dictionary, before getting back to her main book.
    On either side of her were stacks of books, almost another table's worth in height. Several smaller stacks were piled around her feet, and she had one on her lap that she'd look to every now and then.

  Hesitation Chapter 1 (Planet Sheen Fanfic)Next Chapter | Planet Sheen Gallery
In the dark of night, everyone in the Zeenuian Kingdom was heading to bed; the Emperor retired to his chambers and Sheen and Dorkus were relieved of their duties for the day. 
Sheen went with Nesmith back to his temporary home on Zeenu until they can get the rocket functioning again so that they can return to Earth, which would probably lead to the dismay of the Emperor since the latter had taken a liking to the alien boy. 
Meters away from Sheen's home, Dorkus and Pinter retired to their bedroom with Dorkus sitting on spikes, which the Sorua had gotten used to sleeping on over the years; he did have a regular normal bed with cushions and everything else, but it seemed that he did not want to lie in that bed for reasons u

COME JOIN EVERBODY! 'CAUSE THERE'S 600 POINTS AND LOTS OF ART, FEATURES AND MORE TO BE WON~!

(Gawd I love announcing like this! xD)

Your Goal:
Your objective for this contest will be to draw my vampire/scientific experiment character Allen Warfare.
Can't draw humanoids? Do not worry! its perfectly fine to do stuff like species swaps and turn him into a wolf, pony, feline, anything! (..except a Sonic character, that is xD)

Some general pics that can be used for reference:
Taking Control by WhiteNoiseGhost Subject to Science by WhiteNoiseGhost Reference Sheet: Allen Warfare by WhiteNoiseGhost Have a cookie! by WhiteNoiseGhost
Bio: Allen - Complete ProfileName: Allen Warfare
Alias: Project S
Gender: Male
Species: Vampire
Age: 21 (But looks 15)
Nationality: American
Height: 1,70m
Weight: 58 kilograms
Skin tone: very pale
Eye colour: red and grey (normal), deep purple (under control)
Hair: black, straight, slightly wispy, reaches shoulders (so fairly long but not too long and certainly not too short)
Distinguishing Features: blind on one eye, black feathered wings, little vampire fangs, while in Controlled state has purple liquid coming from his eyes and mouth
Fears: scientists, syringes, anything holy, the parasite fluid that was put into him, direct sunlight, slightly claustrophobic
Personality: a bit lazy, usually spends his time playing video games and only really goes out to hunt for blood or to stretch his wings a little. Doesn't make a problem out of the fact that he has to kill humans to feed on their blood ("I'm just higher on the fo

(I highly recommend reading this, it contains some essential information)
tl;dr?
Well, here's a synopsis:
Allen is a 21 year old vampire (who looks like 15 cause he stopped aging when he became a vampire) who fell subject to secret mind control experiments. He's escaped, but it still left it's aftermath; he is infected with a parasitic, purple fluid called Zeta-5C06 which occasionally takes control over his mind and turns him into an agressive murdering machine. In this so-called 'controlled state', his eyes will turn a deep purple, and the fluid (also purple) will start seeping from his eyes and mouth while he will start acting as if in a state of hypnosis or trance.

What is allowed:
-Blood, gore, violence, torture, or anything else in that general direction
-Non-bloody or gory stuff too lol (you can basically make it as cute or creepy as you want. All's up to you~!)
-Manga/Anime/Chibi styled art as well as realism
-Literature
-Pixel art/animations
-Species swaps
-Use of alternative clothing
-Interactions with your own OCs/Shippings/Whatever else along those lines
-Genderbends
-Basically almost EVERYTHING, both traditional and digital allowed
-transparent backgrounds as well as coloured backgrounds

What is not allowed:
-Anything sonic-related
-General NSFW
-Base edits
-Sketches/lineart (work has to be finished and coloured)

What I will be judging on:
-Originality (how original is your result?)
-Compatibility (did you get the details right?)
-Technique (How awesome were you with your tools?)

Side notes:
-It is recommended to draw something along the lines of his story/personality/etc, but you can also choose to go any direction you want! Wanna draw something more romantic? Or more badass? No one will stop you~
-Please do pay attention to the details; for example, he is pretty pale because he's a vampire.
-Very recent character development: he now wears black fingerless gloves. it is up to you though whether or not you want to draw them on

The Prizes:
There will be only 1 big prize, but its not just any prize~ when I say big, its BIG! :3

WhalesWhales
These gentle giants roam the waters,
Not expecting anything.
There is a sharp metal object,
Coming their way.
They don't know what's going on,
But they can feel the pain.
These innocent creatures,
Are pulled up by chains.
The others have finally figure out,
Whats going on around them.
A whaling harpoon has hit them.
A massive violent gun.
As each whale is pulled aboard,
They become weaker and weaker,
In their terrible state.
The last thing they see,
Is the satisfied look,
In the fisherman's eyes.
Why Me, Why YouWhy Me, Why You
Why is it when I look in your eyes,
I can see the love burning inside.
Why is it when you hug me,
I melt into your arms.
Why is it when you leave,
I'm lost in my own thoughts.
Why is it when you say goodbye,
It feels like forever.
Why is it when the phone rings,
I answer, just to hear your voice.
Why is it when you don't call,
I'm sitting there wondering,
Where you are.
Why can't I breathe,
When you're not around.
Why can't I speak,
When I try to talk about you.
When I am around you,
You always seem to walk away.
When I hug you,
Why do you flinch away?
When I look at you,
I just see myself in your eyes.
Why when you leave,
Must you keep coming back.
Why me,
Why you?

Get inspired, and start drawing!

Hello, dear friends! :heart:

Forgive the recent lack of updates; I was away adventuring in the wilds of Montana for a week, and slipped a disk in my neck the week before that — was resting up for my EPIC JEEPING TRIP! But I'm back now... please note me or our Fearless Leader, :icongreetings10:, if you have any business you'd like to bring up!

First, for your viewing pleasure, a few of my favorite pics from the truly astonishing mountains we were camped in. *Sigh* I grew up in Big Sky Country, and I miss it already... visiting always feels like coming home. Especially since my beloved "little" brother lives there!

Whew! And those pics are only from THE FIRST DAY! I still have about 500 more photos to sort through and add a watermark to, before posting...

While I was away, I got my very first Daily Deviation! :squee: My :iconbffplz: :iconjohnmin93: called me on Skype to let me know... otherwise I might have wondered why my inbox was so full when I got back! Thank you all so very much for your congratulations, and for reading the story! (I'm currently in the process of writing more of the story, by the way...)
The TrundlerThe waste land behind the fire station is always silent. No birds sing there, and even the wild rabbits and feral cats avoid it. Weedy wildflowers nod their seasonal heads in the breeze. Lying fallow in the midst of housing developments, shopping malls, the new movie theater — the vacant lot stands out like a knife wound on a woman’s placid face, shocking, brazen, ugly.
It is always empty. Except for one thing: a ragged heap of old trash, all nasty black tar paper and vicious snarls of rusted wire, car parts and broken glass and other junkyard jetsam. The embodiment of injury waiting to happen, an invitation to a tetanus shot...  the city never hauled it away. No one ever wants anywhere near it; it radiates an eerie sense of calculating watchfulness.
And at night, it wanders.
When darkness falls, and the last cars heading into the hives of tract housing stop illuminating the asphalt with moving-picture shadows, it… unfolds. Bitter, broken tangles, grotesquely mov


OK... now back to business!

OC CONTEST — LINNEA:
First, I'd love some artwork of a beloved OC of mine! Her name is Linnea; she's a vivacious, friendly, endlessly curious and innovative young woman with a scholarly bent, a ferocious temper when she's defending friends, and a love of singing, exploring, stories, and good pranks. She's a buxom redhead with long hair (which she often braids up in a crown on her head), slightly tilted turquoise blue eyes, a dusting of freckles across her nose, a rosebud mouth and a mischievous smirk.
- First prize: 1,500 :points:!!!
- Second prize: 500 :points:
- Third prize: 300 :points:

I will not be giving you a price that nobody can afford, so I am just letting you all know ahead of time.

It is called the "Supaa Kawaii Sell" (English Translation: Super Cute Sell) where the maximum price for all of my human and animal adoptables EXCLUDING the Fluffy Bear species AND 'Preppy Rich Girl' Adoptable which is the LATEST Adoptable I have uploaded.

GetDailyDeviations  is hosting an exciting contest for you ALL to participate in! We hope you're all very eager to create and submit your entries, please read the description, rules, and guidelines below!
   
   
To Tell a Story:
The theme of this contest is to tell a story, which is vague, but also very to-the-point. All artwork tells a story whether it intends to or not, as we all interpret what we wish to, when we see it. Your goal for this contest is to create a piece of art, with a specific story in mind. It can be your story, the story of someone you know, it can be fictional, it can be short, it can be sad, it can be ha

:star: :devart: Animation Project information!
Information about the deviantART animation project____________________________________________________________________
                                               EDIT
I changed the intro quite a lot, it's not as sketchy and scribbly as it was before.
Also, started working at the first scene, but the animation is already so HUGE that Flash slows down everytime I test it, leaving me stuck with 5-10 frames per second.
Pretty lame, and I sure hope I can fix this, but dividing it into different scenes and then putting them together is kind of a hassle, but everything that fixes the issue is fine with me.
I will keep you updated with single frames, I hope thats alright with you.
By the way, keep in mind that I'm rather busy now, so sorry towards the donators that I haven't contacted yet, I wi
