XxWicked
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. 

HiddenLeafDragon
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:

She-Foxy
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: docs.google.com/forms/d/1FvpHE…

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,
Nichrysalis 




buttfIuff has recently suffered a severe breakup. (The user WILL NOT be mentioned, for I do not want any hate to be directed towards him/her.) I am sure all of you know this is quite common, and shouldn't be fussed over.
HOWEVER,
This breakup has affected her life drastically, and she wants to self harm.
I know most of your responses: Yeah, so are hundreds of teenagers elsewhere. Your points being?
Well, these people need to be told how much they are cared and loved for!
I ask you, all of you, to simply show buttfIuff how loved she is by watching, giving a llama, favoriting some of her works, donating, commenting on her profile, or simply noting her to show how much she is cared for!
Not just to her, but to anyone you know who is suffering the temptation to self harm!
Even though probably not many will read this, I appreciate any of you who care.
Share this journal to spread the word, please!
buttfIuff, you are loved, and I am going to show just how loved you are. :heart:

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 on 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?

~GRAND WINNER~
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)

That's it, have fun searching!

Here at SenshiDesign, it's not enough just to celebrate awesome fuku designs, we'd also like to promote their creation! To that end, we're hosting our first contest!

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:

This is purely a design contest. You will not be judged on shading, anatomy, character description, or anything but the actual design of your fuku.

Begins: Now!
Ends: June 30th, 2014

Contest is open to all deviants, regardless of group membership status.


:bulletpink: Grand Prize :bulletpink:
- 1 year premium dA membership, or 2396 points
- Your choice of emreven art! A) colored halfbody B) 2 halfbody linearts C) 2 colored headshots

:bulletyellow: Runner-up :bulletyellow:
- 1 year premium dA membership, or 2396 points
- A halfbody lineart or colored headshot by emreven

Plus, the following honorable mention categories will each receive a 3-month premium membership, or 636 points!

Best Bow
Best Sailor Collar
Best Skirt
Best Back of Fuku
Best Bodysuit
Best Accessory
Best Team


The following themed categories will be unlocked if at least 5 entries matching the theme are submitted:

- Fantasy
- Scifi
- Mythology
- Modern/Fashion

These themes refer to the design of your fuku, not the character wearing the fuku. If two or more categories still aren't unlocked by the end of the contest, entries in those categories will be grouped into a general "Themed" category.

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:

Emreven's Pick: Separate from the above, I will pick one or more entries to receive a lineart headshot from me.

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:

How to Enter
To enter, submit your fuku designs into the Design Contest folder! Your entry must link to SenshiDesign in the description and mention that it is part of the contest.

You may submit up to three designs in the contest.

You may include multiple poses in your entry, enlargements of details, et cetera, so long as it's presented as a single image/deviation.

You may only enter your own, original fuku designs. You may not enter designs which have been adopted from or created by someone else.

You may include up to three fuku variations as part of a single design (i.e., a team). Team entries must be presented in the form of a single image/deviation. Entrants are limited to a single team entry.

If you wish to submit a design which is already included in the group, simply comment on this journal entry with a link to the image you want to enter. Don't forget to link SenshiDesign in the description!

If you wish to replace a submitted design with another image or design, you can do so by commenting on this journal.

Submitted designs may be modeled by your original character, by a character from Sailormoon, or even on a blank mannequin base!

You may use a base. Designs may be adoptable. No dollmakers.

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:

Judging
At present, judging will be done by myself (emreven). If anyone is interested in joining the main judging, the requirements are that you provide some form of main prize(s), and you cannot enter the contest yourself. Please send a group note explaining what prize(s) you would be willing to offer, and briefly explain why you'd like to judge or why you think you'd be a good judge. Make sure you will have time available the first week of July for judging.

If you simply want to offer a personal prize (as in, you pick the winner, like "Emreven's Pick") and not participate in the main judging, you're more than welcome to do so and still participate in the contest! ^^ Just send a group note with what you'd like to do. You will be contacted at the end of the contest to choose the winner for your prize.

The main contest judging will be based only on costume design, not the finished quality of an image. It doesn't matter if your image has a background, or if it is fully coloured/shaded. It does matter whether or not your fuku design is clearly visible, so please keep that in mind!

Individual pick prizes will be judged by those individuals based on whatever criteria they so choose.

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:

Thanks so much for your time! Hope you decide to enter! <3

Weekly Hunt #122

Fri Apr 18, 2014, 8:56 PM by IceXDragon:iconicexdragon:
Every Friday, there will be a 'Hunt' for either the Most or the Least of something or other. It's a weekly (hopefully) fun activity, open to all, that will get you scouring deviantART for the best possible piece that fits the 'Hunt'.

The person who suggests the best piece will get four of their art pieces featured on our page and, in return, the piece itself will also be featured on dAseniors' front page!

Please suggest up to 2 pieces to this folder, not on this journal!

(It will be automatically approved, so make sure you submit wisely. Ohm... Ohm...)


Last time, we had the least...

Strange Eggs About

Fri Apr 18, 2014, 11:23 PM

Helmy says:

Have you been noticing all of those weird eggs stashed around the campus? Well, you should -- and get to collecting them -- because they're going to be disappearing come Monday. I've been hearing there are a lot of unusual contents in them, so you may be lucky... or you may not be.

  • White eggs are hard boiled, and make for a good snack or for coloring.

  • Purple eggs will scream when you crack them open. It's loud and startling!

  • Green eggs contain money. Hohoho! Get something new in Moonseed Lane.

  • Orange eggs will hatch into chicks if you incubate them. Griffin chicks, that is.

  • Brown eggs will lick you when you pick them up.

  • Blue eggs like repeating anything said around them. Don't share any secrets, or you'll be sorry.

  • Silver eggs have another egg inside. And an egg inside that. And an egg inside that. Does it ever end?!

  • Black eggs have a void inside them that will suck you up and spit you out somewhere else on campus. Free travel?

  • Red eggs have candy inside them. Yay! That feels a bit more traditional.

  • Gold eggs have bugs inside. Worms, cockroaches, snails, EW. Don't eat those!

  • Gray eggs will grow legs and walk around. Entertaining to watch, and sort of like a pet rock that moves.

:iconsparklesplz:
Draw or write about your character encountering any number of strange eggs appearing on the campus. Submit this to the Sanctioned Events folder to get 1.5x EXP!
:iconsparklesplz:
Deadline: May 1, 2014

:iconeastereggsplz:

Interested in joining an RP event? Come to us in the chatroom to wander around the campus and pick up eggs! You can throw them at people too, that's always fun.

When: April 20th at 6:00 PM Central Time

If you haven't tried your student out yet, now's a good time to do it!
