XXXX GIVEAWAY CLOSED XXXX :iconkiwikku:XXXX GIVEAWAY CLOSED XXXX2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I think now's a great time to start the giveaways back up again- first with small ones, but building up to bigger and better ones in the future! It's always fun to give back to the people who gave me so much..
Welcome to the first in a series of weekly giveaways by Kiwikku / Moomin-Man
These giveaways are FREE to join and require no points to enter!- lotteries are not allowed on dA.
However, this giveaway is very special- and very sad.
A few weeks ago, I heard about the touching story of whisperwings, which inspired me to create a brand new arts endowment to help get smaller artists known- please read the full story here:
And there's more.
I've created a new group to give more people a boost-
This group's purpose is simple: Great artists, some with amazing art- don't get noticed because they have little to no watchers. I want to change that. And you can help. How?

Safe and SoundBlood spluttered out, eyes dilated in the shock that swept through the females body.Safe and Sound2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Her head shook violently as she looked down as she saw a katana pierced through her upper body, right through zhyphoid process and solar plexus.
The excruciating pain.
Blood gurgled up her throat and as she fought to breath.
Her eyes dimmed, as she fell forward, cringing as the blade shifted, her cut bone shoving into her lung. In the distance she heard someone call out her name, blurred but distinguished.
Hearing her name seemed to push her to stand up.
She murmured incoherently, stumbling to stand up, only to tumble back down. Her thoughts seemed to disappear, nothing came to her mind, she couldn’t think of anything.
That was the first.
Nagisa saw it happened, unbelievable blue eyes widened as the blade stuck through the blonde, they watche

Something is coming
Lords and Contracts, Boundless Demons and Hell Humans, Earth Humans and Angels, Angels of virtue and every other creature existing anywhere in any realm!
Get ready. Something is coming. Maybe for you, maybe not, but when it's here it will most certainly screw up the nice and orderly life you built, so you better get ready to stop it in time!
This means getting into gear, sending me your battle template (If I didn't get back to you yet, please note it to me again. It probably got lost because I think I should be more or less up to date now), tying your shoelaces properly and kissing your loved ones goodbye.
The First Sub Arc is coming.

First of all THANKYOU to all your messages and private messages. It made my day and it meant a lot to me

I've also left some notes under the photos to tell a bit of a story
The Wedding went perfectly we found a free japanese garden and it was perfect. I wore an Ocarina of Time necklace that was made by my Sister in-law, she also made the cake, the dress and did my hair so she's super amazing

Gomen...to all people I need to art for :iconkarasawa6plz:Gomen2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Commissioners, Art tradies, Prize winners and Collabers.
I know it's a pain waiting for me, but my tablet has been having a rough few weeks-months. I can get away with doodles and roughly done pictures, but since the wire has been getting more and more sensitive, it requires me sitting really still, in an awkward position so it doesn't turn off. Then I have to fiddle around with the wire until I get it working in a good position again, and it's quite irritating, and tiresome. I actually tore the wire today after bending it a lot
But I'll try and get a new wire/tablet soon, so I can art for y'all. :iconsawbplz: <3
Thankyou for your ever loving, loving. :icondokis-plz: PEACE
A Note on Daily Deviation FeaturesAt ten features into my tenure as Community Volunteer for Abstract & Surreal Photography I am noticing a certain trend in response to abstract and surreal Daily Deviations. I shall address some of the recurring themes here, and hopefully answer some questions along the way. At this point I would like to mention that I am talking about a small and vocal minority, and I sincerely thank the overwhelming majority for supporting the featured artists and their work. You're what makes this site such a great community.A Note on Daily Deviation Features3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
With that said, let's get to the troublesome themes I am coming across.
The "This is crap!" Argument
As an observer and a critic, you're entitled to think that something isn't very good. However, exclaiming as such on the comments of a piece of work that an artist has spent time and energy creating is not only counter-productive, but rude and insulting, especially if it's not followed up with some advice about how you think they could make their

Desktop Nexus Alert UpdateOnce again the monster that is Desktop Nexus, and its plethora of incredibly stupid members raises its ugly head againDesktop Nexus Alert Update3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It annoys me no end that I seem to have to send out reminders like this every year or so about this site which needs killing slowly and painfully by the fire of a thousand suns.
Its members are now trying a new tack of apparently "crediting" and saying they have permission from all of YOU, yes, even you lurking in the back row there - you have apparently given them permission to redistribute YOUR work on desktop Nexus as wallpapers.
I might add, that if you have actually been idiotic enough to give somebody permission to redistribute your artwork in this manner, you and by granting and receiving permission - them - are still responsible for accurately providing the required credits as per your agreements with the original stock providers you used when creating your work. It is furthermore YOUR responsibility to make sure anybody
A Note about Copyright and CreditingHello lovely people.A Note about Copyright and Crediting4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I'd just like to give you guys a reminder about three points of copyright that come up quite often and I think people are confused about. I don't want to see any of you get in trouble, so here's some things that you should remember:
Characters Ripped out of Games and Screenshots
Ripping models out of games and using them in your art is absolutely 100% not allowed on DA. This is considered a copyright infringement. Passing these around to others just makes things even worse. Please make sure you don't do this and don't use resources that have been taken from games.
I can't stress this enough, make sure any stock models you use are from people who either made them or have express permission to supply them to you.
Screenshots are a bit more of a grey area. Some game companies let you post them some don't. If you MUST post screenshots, please make sure they are correctly labeled and credited, and put in the Fan Art gallery.
Game screenshots don't belon

I will officially be roaming around Deviantart in search for artist who deserve points. I will also be checking all profiles in the comments So you don't have to link me your art in the comment :3
Some quick rules on commenting.
Please don't ask for points, for me to look at your profile, or link your art. If you know someone who you think deserves some points, fill free to send me their profile via note. Anything else will unfortunately be disregarded
The amount i'll be giving away each month is 4000 This is because I am not "rich" and unfortunately money does not grow on trees (yet). So this quest to find users who deserve points will gone of for the rest of the time I'm on DeviantArt. (48,000 Yearly)

How to price your artwork for freelance workFor a while now I have been giving pricing suggestions to artists in the projects forum. I've had many requests and given a lot of advice. It is getting to the point where there is so much demand that I just can't keep up on the reviews, so I thought I might lessen the burden a little and help you learn how to price your own artwork.How to price your artwork for freelance work5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The problem with pricing your own work is that your opinion is not objective. You may think that your art is better or worse than it actually is. This is normal, but to get the best evaluation of your art you should ask for help outside your immediate family and friends. Remember, the project forum is intended for this very purpose. After following all the steps outlined in this article I implore you to make a thread in the project forum asking if your pricing assessment is accurate. For example "Is my art worth $XX USD?" would be an appropriate title for your thread and would hel

Six Ways to Earn More CommissionsIf you’re serious about earning an income with your art, then you have to be serious about marketing yourself. If you’re like me, you hate selling… you don’t like rejection, it makes you nervous and you think you’re no good at it. That’s why we’re artists and not salesmen. Fortunately marketing yourself is kind of an art form. Although I don’t have all the answers, I’d like to share a little of what I’ve learned about the art of marketing ourselves.Six Ways to Earn More Commissions5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Be Seen: First, make it easy for people to find you. Create a deviation with a list of the different kinds of commissions you offer, with a sample and a price for each. Put this deviation near the top of your profile so that everyone knows you’re open for commissions. Here’s mine as an example:
Join commission groups where people looking for commissions can find you. Many commission groups will expect you to have a commission s
