3rd place: :iconscaverle: with
This entry spoke strongly to me. How Kichea sees the world and how the world truly is. She is not facing the world, but rather at the future. She contains a look as if she almost pities it. My friends couldn't stop talking how amazing this was and it shows in this entry.
2nd place: :iconmrdomiporta: with
A strong personal favorite of mine. Shows her chill side well when she's not out bounty hunting. Love all the detail and shading done. Plus, she has a look that says she could kill you at any moment while looking sexy doing it.
And the winner is...
And of course, this masterpiece. The battle scars, lovely background, and small rays of light... all speak clearly of Kichea's character. Kichea is the light, literally that is what her name means,
Introducing my Original Characters!Hi everybody!Introducing my Original Characters!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
My "Draw my OCs" Contest is open, so the time has come to tell you more about my OCs and their stories!
Below you'll see the list of the comics/projects/stories to which my OCs belong and you'll be able to know more about their pasts, their behaviors, their love stories and much more!
The order in which the OCs are listed doesn't mean anything: there's no project I like more than the others, or no OC that you'll have to draw to have more chances to win. Everything depends on your ability to portray them and their stories, independently from your drawing skills. If the drawing is technically perfect, but the characters are completely different from the ones described here (physically and temperamentally) it won't win, because it doesn't represent my OCs in the right way.
So, do your best and don't forget to read the descriptions carefully! ^^
Before every story I'

If you have already finished your entry, post it now! You have time up to midnight tonight, because tomorrow the jury (me, my sister and my father) will consult to choose the best ones and probably the results of the contest will be published.
Are you good at portraying people? Are you a fan of vampires? Do you like wolves or werewolves? Do you have a penchant for dragons and you like to draw? If you answered yes to at least one of these questions, you're in the contest for you!
Welcome to my first REAL contest on deviantart. (There was another, smaller, but that does not count ...).
This is a kind of statistical contest ... to the character that will be many times designed and therefore appreciated among my OC, surely will be granted to survive the final battle of the Way of Legends (or any battle).

Contest Announcement~I am officially announcing my first contest, i have planned this for a month and finally i can officially announce itContest Announcement~4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The idea of this contest is simple, draw one of my OCs Crow or Fox or both if you feel inspired!
They are my original characters. They are creatures with magic but that doesn't make the very special because they live in a world where many things are magical. Also they live in a forest. The place they live in has no cities or technology, only clans of different magical creatures. They have absolutely no contact with humans either although humans do exist in this world, these creatures just stay away from them. Fox is cunning and composed, while Crow is easily manipulated and sincere. Fox is blackmailing him and keeping him under her thumb because she wants to keep him close to her and that is the only way she knows how.
here are images of them for inspiration
Beadwork feature - shaped flowersFlowers in this feature, unlike the ones in Flowery beadweavings feature, were not made just by "painting" flower in beaded fabric using different coloured beads and, unlike French beaded flowers, don't need wire in order to get or keep shape. These were made using different sizes of beads, different stitches, different tension, by increasing, decreasing and shaping the beaded fabric. There are many different ways to make a shaped flower - from veryBeadwork feature - shaped flowers2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
simple (think single daisy in daisy chain) to very complex. I'll provide several tutorials and lots of eye candy.

Contest: Fan Art NouveauHello, everyone! It's time for another Fan Art contest. This time, we're asking participants to create Fan Art in Art Nouveau style.Contest: Fan Art Nouveau3 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is Art Nouveau?
"Art Nouveau (French pronunciation: [aʁ nuvo], Anglicised to /ˈɑːrt nuːˈvoʊ/) or Jugendstil is an international philosophy and style of art, architecture and applied art—especially the decorative arts—that was most popular during 1890–1910. English uses the French name Art nouveau ("new art"), but the style has many different names in other countries. A reaction to academic art of the 19th century, it was inspired by natural forms and structures, not only in flowers and plants, but also in curved lines. Architects tried to harmonize with the natural environment.
Art Nouveau is considered a "total" art style, embracing architecture, graphic art, interior design, and most of the decorative arts including jewellery, furniture, textiles, household sil

I'm gonna promise to get more active here, no matter what. I've kinda disappeared from dA and I want to get back.. If you guys don't see me it's because of something that I got in trouble with my mom. You don't need to worry about it; it'll probably blow over sooner or later..

Cathartic LamentSometimes I get convinced I have no authority on anything whatsoever, not even my own life experience. That for me to speak, draw, think, write, ANYTHING on any topic is completely invalidated by my own inevitable ignorance, no matter my efforts to educate myself. And that by educating myself, I only make it clearer how little I really know.Cathartic Lament2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's something of my greatest fear that some day, somebody is going to make it impossible to prevent me from doing what I love because they've been offended by my getting it wrong. "No! You can never tell stories again! You're not allowed to ever do this because you've proven you lack the capacity to truly understand what you're talking about."
Science, culture, friends, family, none of it would matter. That I got it all wrong and I should suffer for my ignorance by being prevented from doing so much as picking up a stick to doodle in the dirt with.
I wish I could become an expert in everything. I so wish I could travel around the world

DON'T WORRY, THIS IS STILL BEING JUDGED.
The past couple weeks have just been hectic due to it being Valentine's and whatnot.
(Not to mention a couple of the people I need to get opinions from haven't been on due to their own reasons.)
Everything is set to be announced by the first week of March at the latest, however.
Thank you for your patience, and I apologise for the wait!
SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW, 100% CLOSED.
No more will be accepted from this point on.
Now comes the toughest part of all... judging. And it's going to be a difficult task indeed.
Unlike last times when I did all solely by myself, this time I will be getting some assistance from people I know who are also familiar with The Summoner, its premise/background and characters.
Final decisions will be mine, however...
I ask for everyone's patience in this, and it might not be until March that I'm able to find the time to finalise everything.

"For the love of fuck, just let it out of your system already!" Ymir snapped at you, exasperated beyond all measure. "All of this pretentious bashfulness is getting on my nerves! Take him to bed if you have to!"
"Ymir!" Christa gasped, turning beet red.
You calmly met the freckled girl's domineering gaze with a level-headed stare.
"It obviously isn't an issue with you, Ymir," you said, smile flickering wryly. (Christa turned even redder) "But when a man and a women canoodle, children happen. Setting aside the fact that this is the Recon Corps we're talking about, it's a reinforced notion that p
Redesign a character contest!If there's something we love about fan art is how artists take artistic liberties and portray characters in their own style and different scenarios we wouldn't see otherwise. Some people will say that fan art is unoriginal, but from experience there's a lot of creativity involved when it comes to depicting your favourite characters in a different light, deviating from the way they were designed by their creators.Redesign a character contest!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is why, inspired by the Pokedesign Challenge by *CrazyRatty on Tumblr, your friendly neighborhood Fan Art CVs decided to host a fun little contest for you!
How it works:
Pick a character from any fandom you like.
