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?

Hello! It’s been a while since we’ve given an update due to Audition Round starting, but I’ve finally got a new one!

We’ve gotten a few judging requests, which is great, but as we get more we’ll have to start deciding how long judges need to judge your rounds before R1 comes out which largely depends on how many people we need to judge and such.

So while we can’t give you a solid estimate yet (since we’re unsure how many more requests we’ll receive), we’d like to give you the option to request judging before deadline so long as you understand that means no edits after a judge reads your entry will be counted in your score. So if you’re sure you’ll make no edits, go ahead and tell us so we can get some judging done sooner!

Informing us that you won’t make edits and are willing to be judged before deadline also means R1 will come that much faster once deadline is up. Future rounds will most likely have this feature as well!

Thank you for reading!

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




Original "This Day Aria"(c)My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic


P.S.: Stay tunned for more music videos! ;D

Heavens-Aria's contest advertising

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 28, 2014, 8:33 PM

MisterMya is hosting a contest about her Naruto fan-character "Eishou Tenon", and you can even draw Hyuuga Neji with her!  ^^
It's quite interesting since you can use inspiration from a list of over 20 songs.  :)

More info about the contest rules and prizes here:

I'm going to enter, too!  :eager:

Looking for Admins

Thu Aug 28, 2014, 2:14 PM

So the group has been running for little over a month now and I'm very pleased to announce that things, so far, are running smoothly! Of course, there are things to improve. Exposure and an increase in activity being two of those.

In the following few days, I start back at school and this year is my final one, which means it's going be full of a lot of hard work and exam pressure. The likely hood of things are that I will not have the opportunity to log on and tend to the group everyday, like I would wish to.

To assist me in running the group, I'd like to recruit a team of admins who would be responsible in helping me keep the group alive, maintaining behind the scenes, helping to promote the group and collaborate on new, exciting ideas for the group.

The following positions are open:

Credit Keeper

In order to keep the Credit System alive, it is important that I have some help in overseeing things and making sure that credits are added and removed as they need to be.

Contest Collaborator

I plan to hold many a contest on devSINCERE and to help me come out with new and exciting themes and ideas concerning them, it would be useful to have someone who can collaborate in contest brainstorming. This person would also be expected to help promote any contests we hold.

Gallery Maintainer

Ensuring that deviations are submitted to the correct folders, ect, the gallery maintainter will oversee gallery submissions.

To apply for the positions, please note the group with the following form filled out:

Wow, hi everyone.  It's been a while.  I'm going to be straight with all of you.  Here goes.

1: First of all, I deeply apologize for the inordinately extended absence.  It wasn't fair to any of our contestants, viewers, or pending auditioners to drop off the map like that.  Sorry from the bottom of my heart, personally.
2: Second, I took such a break from this OCT, I almost forgot about it.  My life, simply put, got full of debt and very busy, so I've been working that out, even taking a break from higher learning.
3: Third, I am still seriously interested in continuing this OCT.  This is my baby, and it IS exciting.  But I realize I need to take this more seriously than ever, and that's what I intend to do.

I understand if several of the already-accepted contestants are no longer interested.  I've kept you waiting far too long.  But I can promise you that I won't abandon you like that again.  Even if this goes under at the end of it all, I'll tell you, and not string you along for my own convenience.

Now on to the present things... [very important, please read, everyone]

1: HELLO.  I am SO happy to be posting here again and to become reacquainted with you all!  Holy crap, it feels good to be even on DevArt again.
2: I will need an assistant manager for this OCT; in essence, we are hiring.  This is too much to handle on my own, and while my sister and co-runner Kyasarin-angel is sure to pop in every now and again, she is too busy for this position.  I need someone who is willing to help me run and manage this OCT.  This includes writing and posting blogs and updates, responding to messages and notes, badgering judges or contestants for deadlines, and even providing unbiased judging [if needed] for this OCT.  This "job" will extend for the next year, possibly longer.  Please pm the group or even me directly if interested, and we'll talk.
3: This is the official update blog!  We're blowing the dust off this old girl and getting back in the game.  Who's with me, Freedom Fighters??

600 point raffle! Thank you for 600 watchers!You guys. Why. Why do you to this to me, I love you all so much I can't even-- 
When I hit 500 watchers a while back I held an art raffle as a thank you. 
Now that you've all helped me hit 600, I thought it would be fun to hos a raffle giving away 600 DeviantART points.
The rules to enter the raffle are really simple. 
1. Favorite this journal, that's how I'll get your number
2. Make a journal or a poll advertising the raffle
3. When you're done, link me to you journal/poll so I can officially register you as a participant in the raffle
And that's pretty much it. (: 
Unlike last time, this raffle is open for everyone, not only my watchers. 
However, watchers will have the perk of getting a free commission from me if they win, as well as the points. (: 
Since this is a thank-you raffle to my watchers it only makes sense they'll get a little something extra, no? 
This goes for both old and new watchers, anyone

Casting Crowns Interview at GMA 2005

Welcome to Artist Bestiary's first collaborative event. First of all let me thank :iconrevvick: and :iconxevangelx: for coming up with this fantastic idea.

We shall gather up and interview each other.

Each participant would be assigned a pair. On the first round, one person writes a list of questions/instructions for the other person to answer, and the other person... answers those! On the second round, the persons switch their roles.

For example, if I was to have an interview with :iconrevvick:, and it would first be my turn to interview him, I could perhaps write Rev something like these:

1. Hey Revvick! Tell me a bit about yourself.
2. What do you want to be in the future?
9. Tell me one good deed you have done!
10. Anything you'd like to add?

I would send these to Rev, perhaps via a dA Note, or via IM, or via the forums...

I personally have always included the "tell me about yourself" as the first statement, and "something you'd like to add" as the last one. I've found out that by this way, people can get the chance to tell something you may not think of asking.

And if it would be my turn to answer, I'd answer the questions somehow like this:

1. Hey VisionCrow! Tell me a bit about yourself.

Hey all. :tighthug: Most of you know me as the person who spends most time with Artist Bestiary. I highly believe I could found a great community of friends interested in the animal arts. ;) Actually, what the people don't often realize about me is that...

2. What do you want to be in the future?

Ah, I don't know. o.o I do consider myself artistic, despite of it not showing well, and I'd like to be involved in the arts industry, preferably something about animal arts. And I have other dreams as well...


And I'd send these replies to Revvick.

When both rounds are complete, you would send me all the answers. I would then publish these in ArtistBestiary (and possibly in the forums as well), so that we have a better sense of who we really are. :)

I think the interviews are a fantastic idea in "boosting morale" and otherwise telling a bit about ourselves, something we might always have wanted to tell about us! It would be great if you attended this event, and there are of course no limits on how many questions there must be or how long the answers shall be... you are free to proceed at the very pace you'd like. ^^

If you'd like to join, do please comment so that I know who's in and who's not.

I don't set a deadline for this collaboration. I don't think this should be rushed, but if it takes a while I'll be sure to peck you then. ;)

How about it? :la:

As a reminder, our fourth prompt is still up until Monday next week! Do join if you can. :3
