X'MAS EXCHANGE!Upon entering the month of December,X'MAS EXCHANGE!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
snowflakes began to envelop the campus with murmurs of holiday cheers. Despite the agony of final exams, the school is lively with end-of-year activities. The night sky is most beautiful during the winter, afterall.
There were parties held in the dormitory, cinnamon drinks served in the cafeteria, and all sorts of decorations throughout campus...
And before the classes ended on that particular December day, an announcement was made throughout the school:
" Hello Students,
We have a mission of you this month!
Are you ready? Listen carefully now---
This is a campus-wide Gifts Exchange Event!
Your mission is to get someone a gift, but catch this:
Freshmen must choose a Junior upperclassman,
Juniors must choose a Senior upperclassman,
and Seniors, you must choose a Freshman to give your gift to!
Of course, this is a good time to bribe the teachers as well--- ahem,
And that is all! Have fun, everyone! "

Digital Abstract ARTs in May , 2011I love abstract arts!Digital Abstract ARTs in May , 20114 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We always enjoy seeing a lot of abstract arts on dA. I have reported the featured works. In this month, I have a collab with tonare. He is a founder of xzb1t which is a cool art group. This NEWS is a collab work.
These works are the best of Abstract arts released in May, 2011 which we chose. They which have great compositions and colors make us feel a beautiful atmosphere. We can find that they have a high originality style. We will be given a new wind from those great works.
I want to say that thank you very much for bringing the great arts to the real world. And I hope everybody likes these works.
I'm looking forward to their great works in the future.

Update on the Interview MagazineHello Everybody !Update on the Interview Magazine7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I am back with an update on the Interview Magazine. I am very optimistic about it and I have a feeling that it will be a SUCCESS.
So let's talk about the magazine.
First of all I have still not decided on a name for the magazine as I am thinking in having it translated in more languages so I need a name that could work in any language. If you have ideas shot them my way !
Content of the magazine
There will be around 30 pages , more or less (around 10 interviews in it). I will try to make each interview as unique as possible (big range of questions).There will be one art theme to draw after, same theme for everybody that wants to draw. This month it might be "Abstract Tree" , "Abstract Brain" or "Waterfall of Knowledge". Still thinking which one should it be, I want to show the readers the different styles and imaginatio
deviantART and Journal spam: what we're doing!Spam is a constant thorn in the side of every Internet user's daily life. From the mundane to the surreal, these emails appear in our inboxes so frequently, messages from South African attorneys offering $10 million dollars get marked as spam without a second thought to savvy users.deviantART and Journal spam: what we're doing!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
We define spam as the misuse of communication systems to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately to our deviants. Typically, the content of spam messages is aimed at advertising a product that is often counterfeit or potentially malicious. With the rise of social networking, there's been an increase in more direct spamming -- companies who directly target your social network profiles.
"Over the last few years, deviantART has had a small but unfortunate stream of such abuse. Usually, it’s as easy as banning the offending members and moving on to more pressing problems, but recently something happened that caused us to re-evaluate how we handle spam issues."

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”
– Guy Fawkes

Once again, thank you VERY MUCH to everyone who has donated
AND thank you to those who've already said they want to enter!
UPDATE: WOW! Thank you SO MUCH to the people who offered prizes! ;u;
I really didn't think I'd get this many donations, you guys are wonderful!
That being said, if you're willing to donate a prize, I'll gladly welcome it & appreciate it with all my heart
If you'd rather join my contest, that'll make me JUST as equally happy~
So after making that last poll, I decided that I WILL run a Starlight contest!
But I'm going to wait until around the start of November, mostly because I need time to plan, but I also know that students have midterms this month~
ALSO, I saw a lot of people were saying it depends on the prizes I'll offer...
So here is where I'll ask anyone who is NOT interested in entering if they'll offer up some prizes!

Contest results!THAT WAS HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARDContest results!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
There were so many awesome entries and lots of entries I wanted to give the first place to!
I got help of these judges:
The contest judging was based on this criteria:
Characters are recognizeble
I think this speaks for itself
Characters are In Character
Speaks for itself. Matsuo must be smiling and cheerful (or shy). Shigeru can't be cheerfully smiling, he isn't the type that smiles easily and for no reason. Kousuke must be acting like a super-seme does, Riza shouldn't be moemoe, since she is a crazy girl etc
This is specially for the couples. How intense/funny/romantic is their interaction in the drawing
Different poses, outfit is very original, something that made you "whoa" by looking at it.
Collab JournalOkay so, I made a journal the past time asking if someone would be interested in doing an art trade/collab with me...atm I won't be taking art trades until the next year buuuuut I'm really interested in collabs!Collab Journal7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've decided to use THIS JOURNAL for art trades and this one for collabs, so if you're interested in an art trade go HERE , but if you're interested in a collab, this is the journal you're looking for u3u...same as in the art trades journal, this journal will be open indefinitely but please don't feel bad if I don't choose you óuòU
I'm mostly interested in the coloring part but I have no problem taking the lineart part...though I'm really bad at thinking about poses and stuff and that's the reason why I don't like taking the lineart XD
However what I usually ask when doing a collab is draw our characters together, one yours one mine...but I can also do fanart or we can talk about it if you want :'
