Unnoticed DA ArtistsThere are so MANY GOOD ARTISTS here, and still, SO MANY PEOPLE IGNORE THEM I CANNOT BELIEVE IT. What has happened to the people?Unnoticed DA Artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have been planning to make a journal featuring the unnoticed talents for a couple of months, but jesus, i won't hesitate any longer.
And I do not want to be mean, but those who have bad (really really really BAD) drawings have more views (including fav, pageview and pic-view) than those who should REALLY deserve them Q.Q It is a pain to look at DA now... i usually check the pages of my new and old watchers and i just do not get it. So many of you are awesome and still, so many of you are marginalized.
I have been thinking about this "problem" for some time.. and I feel that some of the top artists have become maintstream, like Jiuge, Prodigybombay, Laverinne or mrsloth (who are of course awesome, yes, (( except mrsloth i just do not get his drawings anymore, guess they are going down the ladder----> this is just my personal opinion)) and they are inspiratio

The Summoner Art Contest - CLOSED, read updateThe Summoner Art Contest - CLOSED, read update9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
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.

Update, 26 Aug 13: I got a really good reference for Bowen, now; if you were wanting to draw Elaine with him in his "human" form, this is perfect: http://madhatterkyoko.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=183897859
He changes outfits, but he usually wears cool clothes like those. And he does change his hair style. He can have it in spikes or slicked back or like in that reference image. He's not the type to stick to any one thing for long (except for Elaine). ;o

note: Faving this journal might help with your exposure but it's solely up to your fellow deviants ~
It takes me a while to put these together and it's a bit of a tedious process, so if you commented on my other journal to be featured, please take a look at everyone else's work too. After all, it's only fair that way and if you don't, it's just a little selfish and your conscience will bug you . So yah, share the love, guys!

This is Madness! (and Sparta)Hello Eveyone!This is Madness! (and Sparta)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Life has been pretty crazy lately. I just moved to a new apartment and we won't get our internet until a week later so I just want announce a few things while I still have the chance (using my friend's wifi atm).
1. Fanime was amazing! Thank you all who dropped by my table, and sorry that I lost my voice on the 4th day too much talking lol... It was great making new friends, hanging out with old friends, and just seeing other deviants in real life! I'm sorry a lot of the prints sold out on the first day, but I will try to open online sales for certain prints once I get my internet back. And I will definitely print more for future conventions
My deepest apologies for not having 1000 Words for Fanime. The printers at Active Media Publishing http://www.activemediapublishing.com/ promised over and over that they would have it ready, but they didn't, and when we called them about it, they hung up on us. As a matter of fact, we still don't have the book
Contest Deadline Extended!The contest has officially started. The deadline is now the 29th of November 2013!29th of Decemeber!Contest Deadline Extended!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I added an extra month to the deadline as a lot of people have been requesting it.
Furthermore I may be lowering the prizes to entice more competitors. Offering $300 for a prize was supposed to draw out high quality art from some bigger names, however it was pointed out that those people would probably rather draw a few commissions and definitely be paid for it, that risk spending a long time on a work that might not win.
This however is a maybe. And not set in stone just yet.
Everything else in this journal remains the same so if you've read it already, there's no need to keep going ^w
(For everyone who has read this journal before, all the details are the same, except I've added Alexander's Reference Sheet below, FAQ's and one more acceptable theme)

My photography course at HogwartsUuuugh you guys, my sleep has been so terrible. I woke up out of a pretty entertaining dream, though.My photography course at Hogwarts1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was taking a photography class at Hogwarts and Snape was our teacher. I think Ron and Harry might also have been in our class but I never did see them. Our assignment at the time was to get ten outstanding photographs of animals in their natural habitat and he told us we had to roll up our pant-legs and go wading in a swamp full of alligators and poisonous snakes if we hoped to get any good ones. He meant this literally. This was our assignment. (Oh, Snape! )
So I actually did it; I took off my shoes and wandered into the bog, dodging snakes and snapping away. I took so long about it that I missed the start of critique and I sort of ran into Snape with some of my classmates on a bridge while I was headed back to the castle. He was reviewing their photos (and grading ruthlessly, as he does). He saw me and said, "What are you doing? You knew we had critique."
I answered, "Yeah, I kn

Congratulations to :icondeathgoddess231: who won the giveaway.
For those that didn't win; keep following my journals.
There are more giveaways and features coming in the near future
Like some of my old watchers know, I have a premium membership giveaway for watchers at the end of every year.
In most of the previous giveaways, I always asked my followers for a good reason why they'd want a premium membership. I used to read all of the messages, and picked the one that touched me most.
However, with the current amount of watchers and messages I get on a daily basis, I realize this will be hard to keep track of. Let alone picking just a one from that huge group of people. Because I'm sure there are many of you that have interesting story's, and all of you have your reasons to want such a membership.
That's why, this year, I'm going to do it in a different way.
If you want to join, read along!

New Beginnings Contest (CLOSED) Happy New Year, everyone!! :iconasnowmanplz:New Beginnings Contest (CLOSED)2 months ago in Personal More Like This
As you know, a new year is just one of the many "New Beginnings" in life, and that's why I thought it would be fun to hold a contest with that theme!
Theme: "New Beginnings"
This can really be interpreted in any way you like! It can be the start of the New Year, or Spring, when Nature comes back to life, it can be a wedding, starting a family, having a new family member (yes, PETS count! ), turning over a new leaf, realising what you want to do in life...
And the BEST thing about this theme, in my opinion, is that it's OPEN to ALL MEDIUM!!

Traditional art techniquesTraditional art techniques ITraditional art techniques3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Traditional Art Week continues! This article will give you a brief overview of most commonly used physical media techniques and their characteristics, featuring beautiful examples found all over DeviantArt and tutorials. I sincerely hope this will get you inspired to try something new and experiment, why not pick a tutorial and see what you learn! Don't forget, whilst techniques has their own regulations and principles, they still can be combined, you have to be no wizard (just a little creative) to find a new way to express yourself through them. Let's take a look
1. Drawing media
Drawing is one of the major forms of expression within the visual arts, and is generally concerned with the marking of lines and areas of tone onto paper. Traditional drawings were monochrome, or at least had little color, while modern colored-pencil drawings may a
Is college the best thing for you?I don't know how many people out there know this, but I never finished college. I attended for roughly 3 years, but it eventually got too expensive for what I was getting out of it. So, I dropped out.Is college the best thing for you?4 months ago in Personal More Like This
At the time, I was slightly ashamed, but it turned out to be for the best. There's a bit of a stigma attached to those who don't follow through on their education, but in the art world, a degree itself often isn't worth the paper it's printed on. In my relatively short career, I've never once been asked if I attended college or even if I have a degree, and I'm not the only one who'll tell you that. Your portfolio and experience are what speaks for you. You can finish art school, but if your portfolio is no good, the jobs won’t come.
Today, because I chose this route, I’m debt free and I've worked for companies like Lionsgate, Warner Bros. and the Moving Picture Company, opportunities I might not have had if I stayed in school. Now, I'm not saying don't pursue a college e

My "Art of Rise of the Guardians" book!!!! IT CAME A DAY EARLY. AWESOME SURPRISE. It has a foreword by Alec Baldwin, a preface by NONE OTHER THAN WILLIAM JOYCE HIMSELF, and is written by Ramin Zahen.
OHMYGOODNESS. IT'S AWESOME.
It had chapters on each of the characters and their lairs!! AND THERE'S AN ENTIRE. FRIGGIN. SECTION. ON. JACK.
Anyway, I'm writing Chapter 28 right now and should have it up! After that, I'm going to continue fangirling hard as I read through this entire 155-page book.
And then probably write some more. Because I'm going to be inspired.
I'll be sure to end up including some findings that this art book will provide in my writing so it stays accurate!
Thanks, and sorry about the spam.
