Easter [+Flash Giveaway]

Wed Apr 16, 2014, 9:55 PM
Hey Guys, 
Just a heads up that I will be away for the Easter long weekend. I leave later tonight, and will be back on Monday night. 

I will only be able to come on via my phone, so expect less activity [especially considering I live on here during the day...]. I will be working on some art things while I am away, plus loads of Pokemon. 

Hope you guys enjoy your weekend!

Flash Giveaway



To enter the Flash Giveaway, comment below with what you are doing this Easter, and +fave this journal. 

One deviant will win a one month PM whilst another will win 100:points:.
Winners will be contacted on Tuesday.

  • Listening to: Skillet
  • Playing: Pokemon XY - Shiny Hunting
  • Eating: Chocolate
So I'm going to be doing a giveaway to celebrate 400+ watchers. thank you all, I love you T-T
but anyway, I'll be giving away

-450:points:
-An UTAU design (an original design by me)

So the prizes are pretty self-explanatory, I'm making the UTAU design as we speak [I'll reveal later], there will only 1 winner as of right now.
If 200+ enter, I'll double the prizes and make it two winners, if I get 400+ people to enter, I'll triple the prizes.
But I doubt that's gonna happen, so yep, only 1 winner for now ^-^

In order to participate:
-You MUST be watching me [do not watch just for the giveaway, if you're gonna watch me, I'd rather it be because you like my art]
-ADVERTISE, please advertise this journal as much as you can. whether it would be a journal, or poll, just do whatever you can, it really would help me out.
-Fav this journal. I'll be randomly selecting the winner, so this helps me keep track of numbers and what not.
-Donate a point to me [Not at all necessary, but it would help me with future giveaways. I have no use for points, so I like to give them away ^-^]

If you've done all of these things [except, like I said, you don't have to donate] then you will be participating.
I'll let you know by replying to your comment that says you've done everything.

I'm not quite sure how well this'll go. I'm hoping it will be alright.

Start: April 17th | End: May 7th


and as for the UTAU design...I'll give you a hint...punk rock....that is all.

Jumping ahead a little bit into using photoshop to animate. Since I noticed....
some people still need to know some small tricks here and there to make their process faster animating in photoshop.
What this tutorial covers:
1. Animation tool - briefly
2. using layer function to animate
3. 3 passes of rough animation

This is what I do with mine currently. :) 
I’ve been thinking about gradually moving my work off of DA and onto my various other websites. I’ve already shifted my Alex Ze Pirate work to alexzepirate.com/ and I’ve moved my deviations that are in storage over to my main andysartworks.com/ site.

Now I’ve got one more feature to shift over and that’s journals. Ideally I would like to just start posting journals on my own website rather than on DA for a number of reasons. The link to the journals is located here andysartworks.com/journal (and can also be found on the top left of my main andysartworks.com/ site.

This came at just the right time as my subscription with DA has finally ended and... honestly... I don’t really feel like signing up for premium membership again. I love DA and my success here has been enormously life impacting in many ways, but at the same time I kinda feel like I need to have my own site and my page and my own place, which is what my various websites mean to me.

Do not fret, I won’t be disappearing from DA at all, just that I’ll be focusing more of my energies on my own pages. Art will still be posted here, journals will still be posted here, and I am in no way “leaving” the artistic communities.

Just wanted to give y’all a head’s up.

Fentastic Contest

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 17, 2014, 7:22 AM
Hey Everyone!!
Fenny here!!!
As mentioned in a previous poll, I was thinking of making a contest, and with so many positive responses, I've decided, I'm going to go ahead and host one! 

SO, What kind of Contest?

This is a multi-media contest. You can do literally any type of art you can think of! Can't think of what to do? Here are some examples!
Drawing (traditional, Digital)
Painting
Sculpture
Minecraft pixel work/ statues
songs
plushie

As you can see the list goes on.

So, what should we art?

Well, I am being kind of greedy, and my main characters just need more art, plain and simple. Yep, it's one of thooose contests, sort of. There is one minor twist , but I think it will be fun- hopefully.

You are to draw one to all of these characters 
Such Fluff by Fenny-FangLittle Moosh by Fenny-FangSoft with Peace by Fenny-FangThe Great by Fenny-Fang
comm--fenny-fang by haselnusse(this last Guy is Doctor- I havent had time to draw him yet )
Also look here for additional images
 fenny-fang.deviantart.com/gall…

A quick look a personalities 
Fang- sassy and soft
Mooshi- sleepy and lazy
Pockey- Head strong and proud
Lilah- Sweet and kind
Doctor- Charismatic and clever 

You may draw or art them in any way shape or form (like even turn them into humans, or antrho etc)

So what's the twist?

Dont get too excited //shot
The 'twist' is your work must have inspiration off of a song. any song. Pop, classical, techno, wubstep- whatever. Just link it in the  description! Does it matter if I like the song or not? Nope!   As long as I can listen to it along with look at the picture and stare for hours im good! <3

So, what are the prizes?

If you look to the lovely right, there is the list of all of the main prizes. There are three to four grand prizes- depending on how many entries I get (entries= number of arts) You are allowed to submit as many entries as you want. If I get over fifty, the pony plush prize will be unlocked!

When the prizes are won, in case this isnt clear, the first place winner will get to pick what prize of the three (or four) then , the second place will get to choose one from what's left and so on and so forth.

What's this about a raffle?

Well, Im not sure I can get 50 entries on my own. And I would really like the opportunity to make someone a pony plush and get some really cool art!

So! If you advertise my Contest (in a poll journal, whatever) You will be entered into a raffle for a fourth prize. (which is either a fourth grand prize or the prize stated below) for every piece of advertizement you will get a number. So, you can get up to two chances!  

And this ends when?

I have not set a date yet, but probably some time during the summer. You will of course be notified when that is.  
Just for now, think June or July as the probable end date!~

Final Fenny Words


I hope this contest goes well ;v; , and I hope yu all have a lot of fun. Please read over everything before asking questions, but if you still have some I would be more than happy to answer them! Please Mention me in your entries so I can find them, or link them here , on my page, or through notes and I will put the entries below <333


Thank you everyone! 
And Good luck!

Money Crisis: Selling LOTS of DevWear and DevGear

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 17, 2014, 8:50 AM


:wave: Why hello everyone! I have seem to run into a pretty major financial wall, and I really really need help recovering from it. For anyone who I may have talked to, things have gotten kinda slow at my work, and I am not working nearly as many hours as I used to. Work less hours, bring home less money.

Sadly though, my bills have stayed the same. :noes: And now I am in danger of running out of money. So, I decided to swallow my pride, and sell off a good chunk of my devwear and gear. As you'll notice below, the list is quite long. I mean long. :lol: I have been collecting these items since 2006. So some of them are really old, some of from devwear's last days.

It really breaks my heart to part with a lot of these items. I love dA, I always have, and I always will. But sadly, my reality is that I need money, I need it as fast as I can get it, and this may be one of the ways to do so. Please help me. :noes: 

The sizes of clothing are all specified, so be sure to read what they are. All clothes have been lightly worn or not worn at all. They are in great condition. Will wash all clothes before any are shipped.

Please also note, that even though I really haven't worn many of these clothes, they have mingled with clothes I have worn, and when I wash them, there is a chance that allergins, such as dog and cat far may have gotten on them. 

Note: All of these prices are for US. If you are outside of the US and would like to purchase any of these items, I'll have to figure out how much it'll cost me to ship internationally. That being said, I would like to limit any international shipping to smaller items such as shirts, hats, lanyards, and the knapsack. Of course though, if you are willing to pay more for the international shipping, I'll figure out a way to get it to you. :) I don't want to exclude anyone. 

If you are interested in purchasing anything below: Please send me a note saying you are interested, and tell me what you want. I'll set it aside until payment is settled, then I'll get ready to ship it.

Forms of Payment:
  • Paypal - Worldwide
  • Personal Checks - US Only


I'd like to buy something, but I can't :noes: I'm sad to hear that, but don't worry. I'd just like that you please help promote this. Link it in a poll, tell your friends. I'm in a serious crisis over here, so the more that people know about this the better. So please, if you aren't able to buy, please promote this however you can.

Without further ado, the list of clothing and goodies for sale. :la: Please don't be offended if the prices seem a tad high, I really need the money. To look at what the item looks like, please click on the price. It'll lead to you what the item looks like.

Thanks for looking. :heart:
