The 'Interesting Angles' Contest!

Sun Oct 23, 2011, 7:10 AM
So, I've decided to do a contest! YAY :3 I've been trying to save up points for this, I still don't have many but I thought now would be a good time to hold a contest - and I can offer other things too; hopefully along with other prizes from lovely, generous people who donate prizes :heart:

TO ENTER : Note me with a link to your entry, the note must be titles 'ANGLE CONTEST: ENTRY' or it will be ignored. 1 entry per person, must be a new upload, and you may re-do/replace your entry at any time until the deadline.


The Theme


Alrighty! The theme of this contest is 'interesting angles'. This is an equine intermediate/advanced photo manipulating contest, so the main focus must be a horse. If you aren't sure if you are of a intermediate or advanced level, please comment on the journal asking and I'll get back to you. Please do not be offended if I don't think this is the contest for you - there will be other chances! :3

Interesting Angles - I want to see wacky, crazy perspectives on these photo manipulations that make me go 'oh, that's different!'. I'll be uploading an image as an example for an odd angle. I just want to get creative juices flowing with a not too restricting theme, but with something that is guaranteed to make some really beautiful, original images! Heck, you can even have an upside-down manip! Wouldn't that be awesome?

Concepts List Revealed + Challenge

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 20, 2009, 1:19 PM


The Concept List Challenge


Some of you have noted that I often mention my “concept list” in the Artist’s Comments of deviations. Yes, there is an actual list. And yes, I have been essentially going down that list and doing every concept that I can. However, I get distracted easily either by new concepts…or butterflies :lol: so I’m still not even close to finishing this list. And as I figure, I probably will not finish conceptualizing all these ideas…unless I get a little help ;P


So now, here is the challenge for you:

Pick any of the concepts listed below and conceptualize it in any way you want in any medium you choose :D (photography is preferred but all mediums are accepted).  Note me with your finished deviation and I will add it to my collections. In a few months, I will do a large, long feature on the best deviations, best conceptualization, and most creative interpretations for each concept.

Please include in the Artist’s Comments of your deviation the following:
1. Which concept you are conceptualizing (ex. 31. Worth – criticism of obsession over waist size with inches belts)
2. Your interpretation or thoughts of the concept  (ex. My weight should not be inversely proportional to my worth as a human being)
3. A link to this journal so that others can join in the fun :D (roseonthegrey.deviantart.com/j…


Concepts (in no particular order)
(Concepts are described with the intended title first and then a general description/interpretation.)

1. Eye candy – literalism with eyes and candy
2. Hair spray – literalism with hair and spray bottles
3. Less to love? – criticism or parody of Fox’s More To Love
4. Where is the love? – Half heart half hand
5. The Sea is Calling – Seashell phone
6. Books will take you flying – Book birds
7. Earth is a Jewel – Earth as a pearl in an oyster
8. Natural shower – lotus pod as a shower head
9. Peace in love and heart break – heart on fingers making peace sign
10. Natural nails – petal nails
11. Smitten in mittens – portrait of mittens and kittens
12. I rule – literalism with rulers
13. Smile – perspective play with smilie ball tossed in the air over face
14. No Girls Aloud/Allowed – zipper mouth
15. Hardheaded – bald head next to head-shaped rock

17. Love at first sight is deceitful – lady bug meets lady bug pin/drawn lady bug
18. Amelie – cherry earrings
19. The Sun – yellow flower in the sky
20. My Sunshine – girl with yellow dress jumping into the sky
21. C-Section – belly button tic tac toe
22. Afterglow (C-section) – zipper near belly button
23. Eye-opener – zipper eye
24. Crack open the sun – perspective play of sun at sunrise with egg shells held on both sides
25. White out the sky – perspective play with whiteout and clouds
26. Death sentence – cigarette coffin
27. We (are) matter – drawing and holding up signs with words
28. Divided by color, united by shadows – light and shadow play with different colored objects
29. Surf’s up – surfing on an ironing table

42. Feed squirrels nuts not bolts – word play with person feeding squirrels bolts
43. “Ransom notes keep falling from your mouth” – literalism
44. “We are the rabbits” – portrait with rabbit ears hiding
45. “You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take” – vintage camera portrait

Yup, your eyes aren't deceiving you, I'll be giving out 1,000 :points: :D Just today I noticed that I have almost 500 watchers! That's like... :omfg: :icondummydanceplz: :iconsqueeeeplz: :squee: :iconsuccesskid2plz: :iconmanlytearsplz: Well, you got the idea xD I'm really excited! And that's why I want to reward my lovely watchers with a giveaway~ :heart:

There will be 11 winners - 9 people will receive 100 :points: and 2 will receive 50 :points: :meow: Of course, they will be chosen randomly at Random.org


Rules
:bulletyellow:You have to be a watcher of mine, so watch me if you haven't done it already.

:bulletyellow:Be sure to follow the general rules of this account. Rules. [Updated]JUST MAKE SURE YOU READ THEM ALL. Thank you.
:bulletred::bulletyellow:Rules:bulletyellow::bulletred:
1. In order to earn points you have to either watch, fav or give a llama to the people who are featured in the donation pool and/or watch or join the featured groups. [If you join a group, then you automatically watch it, so you won't get extra points for telling that you joined and watched the certain group.]
2. Absolutely NO asking or begging for points. If you do, you'll be either asked to read the rules or ignored.
3. For frequent spamming/breaking the rules/insulting you will be blocked.
4. All the comments related to point donation must be posted on my profile page. Don't send me notes and don't comment on my journal entries. If you do, then again you will be asked to read the rules.
5. Your account has to be at least one month old with at least 3 artworks in your gallery and an icon avatar. [Random doodles/backgrounds/screenshots will not be consider

:bulletyellow:This is optional, but it'd be awesome if you could make a journal about this giveaway as well.

Deadline: October 13




And please don't forget about the current offer! A new offer~!Yush, here I am with new offers for you :D You're gonna have the chance to both get cheaper features and earn points! So keep on reading~ :meow:
First things first. Let's start with the feature discounts~
Forever feature now for 60 :points:!
Both for account and group features! C:
:bulletred:However, if you donate any amount of points less than that, you will be featured according to the original price list.
I'd really love it if you donated, I do need a bit more points for the giveaway I have in mind! ;w;
Want to earn points out of this? No problem!
Make a journal about this offer and earn 5 :points:!
You don't have to copy the content of this journal. Here's an example of what you could write:
Want to get more watchers, favs and llamas? Get featured FOREVER on :iconbouncing-points: page just for 60 :points:!
Don't want to feature yourself, but have a group that needs more attention? No problem! :iconbouncing-points: features groups too!
Don't
I'd still appreciate donations, since I need to give them out to people despite the giveaway :D Also don't forget about the contest on :iconteentitansng:! It'd be awesome if you could join :)


Another thing: I've just created a new group :iconboing-chan-points: It's still a major WIP, but everyone is welcome to join and maybe even make some fanart of my lovely Boing-chan :eyes: :heart:


Okay, that's it! Good luck to everyone! :icongrin--plz:

In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.

What's New

Sta.sh Titles Always Display
Titles on Sta.sh items will now always display. Previously, titles only displayed while hovering your cursor over the items. This simple change makes the interface clearer and makes it easier to identify your items.

Screen Shot 2012-03-27 at 12.28.18 PM by $Dan14Lev


Bug Fixes


General
  • DeviantART was invaded by FUR. After FUR's article received over 500,000 pageviews and 50,000 comments in one day, the felines were contained and the situation was resolved. Fixed by the deviantART community
  • In the Message Center, if a journal was written using non-latin alphabet letters, such as cyrillic letters, some of these letters are replaced with random symbols. Fixed by drommk
  • The preview for Group Journals was not rendering in Opera. Fixed by lendrick
  • Archiving or restoring Group Notes was causing "Undefined" error. Fixed by mpsb
  • The "checkout" cart item counter on the top bar was laggy. Fixed by muteor
  • In the mobile Message Center, multiple fixes were made to the deviation and journal thumbnails and layout. Fixed by shadowhand
  • The "unfavourite" command now properly works on your deviations that you've added to your own collections. Fixed by kemayo and shadowhand
  • Shop thumbs and titles were not aligned for brief period. Fixed by ZombieCoder
  • Made improvements to the pressure brush to have smoother lines, especially when releasing pressure at the end of strokes. Fixed by mudimba
  • The display of the hovered selection of a single item was slightly broken. Fixed by samshull
  • Dragging a file in sta.sh while superbrowse is open now closes superbrowse. Fixed by samshull
  • While using Writer, dragging images on the actual interface such as logos and icons no longer causes errors. Fixed by samshull and Alisey
  • When rapidly switching between pages, one could sometimes end up with a URL not matching the page contents. Fixed by kouiskas
  • Pressing enter on the password field didn't trigger login on IE8. Fixed by samshull
  • Fixed styling of the item renaming text field. Fixed by samshull
  • Made the error message clearer when an item contained unsupported characters. Fixed by kouiskas
  • Part of the shadow was missing on freshly uploaded stacks. Fixed by kouiskas
  • Literature and Writer thumbnails no longer scroll while being dragged. Fixed by kouiskas
  • While composing a new Sta.sh Writer document, the URL of the page you're on updates automatically. If you reload the page or copy and paste the URL of the current page, this URL will work properly now. Fixed by kemayo
  • Inserting Sta.sh deviations into a Writer document was outputting a thumb with an incorrect URL. Fixed by kemayo
  • The Writer sidebar now uses a shrunk-down version of the file viewer on your Sta.sh home page, which fixes a number of inconsistencies and bugs. Fixed by kemayo
  • In the Beta Testers version of Sta.sh Writer that includes HTML enhancements, text that included the "<" sign was being interpreted as HTML code and was causing display issues. Fixed by kemayo
  • When manually adding a list using HTML, the actual code was being displayed rather than formatting it as a list. Fixed by inazar
  • When you open a new documents and don't type anything, a draft is no longer saved since the document is empty. Fixed by inazar
  • Optimized performance of the process that checks whether writer contents have changed. Fixed by Alisey
  • Fixed an issues that caused the gallery and favourites sidebar to insert images twice. Fixed by Alisey
  • Drag-drop of elements within the page should be working again (in particular, dragging images from the sidebar to writer, and dragging images around inside the writer area). Fixed by Alisey
Your Feedback

bradleysays suggested that the Journal Portal section of the footer should have the ability to switch between the category of Journals displayed. 
VS9: Journal Portal Footer Revamp 2.0 by bradleysays

SanguineEpitaph suggested the idea of a Priority Inbox feature, which would allow you to select your favourite artists or close friends and create a separate "Priority" section of your Message Center.

A Rescuer's poem

I am an Animal Rescuer
My job is to assist God's creatures.
I was born with the drive to fulfill their needs.
I take in helpless, unwanted, homeless creatures without planning or selection.
I have bought dog food with my last dime
I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand
I have hugged someone vicious and afraid
I have fallen in love a thousand times
And I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body
too many times to count.
I have animal friends and friends who have animal friends.
I don't often use the word "pet".
I notice those lost at the road side and my heart aches
I will hand raise a field mouse
and make friends with a vulture
I know of no creature unworthy of my time.
I want to live forever if there aren't any animals in Heaven
but I believe there are
Why would God make something so perfect
and leave it behind
Some may think we are master of the animals
But the animals have mastered themselves
Something people still haven't learned
War and abuse make me hurt for the world
But a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for mankind
We are a quiet but determined army
And we are making a difference every day
There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan
Nothing more rewarding than saving a life
No higher recognition than watching them thrive
There is no greater joy than seeing a baby play
who only days ago, was too weak to eat
By the love of those who I've been privileged to rescue
I have been rescued
I know what true unconditional love really is
for I've seen it shining in the eyes of so many
Grateful for so little
I am an Animal Rescuer
My work is never done
My home is never quiet
My wallet is always empty
But my heart is always full
