Darling Army Art Contest - Win a Pinafore!Hello and welcome! I’ve decided it’s about time that I hosted another art contest! The last one turned up so much talent. I would love to see more ^_^Darling Army Art Contest - Win a Pinafore!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
The Darling Army wants you! It’s time to put your talent to create the adorable to the test and join the Darling Army! As someone who can’t draw or paint, I always admire those who can create beautiful things with a pen and paper (or tablet and screen XD). I would love to see how the Darling Army inspires you.
Here are some ideas of things I’ve seen in the past:
+ Your own cosplay pinafore, kimono dress, or skirt design
+ A character (ex. Goku, Matt Smith, Castiel, etc.) wearing a Darling Army design
+ Your own Darling Army mascot
HOW TO ENTER
First, create your original artwork! This can be a chalk painting, a sculpture, watercolor, sketch, copic marker, digital art, etc. If you are not working with a digital medium, please scan your art or take a very clean picture of it (but scans are

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

As an added note, please only join the contest if you are intended to submit/have time to compete, thank you for understanding!~
Edit 3: Hey guys, if you're wondering why I'm not commenting on your artwork is the fact that I'm trying to be comment neutral, meaning that I don't want to comment on work and accidentally cause jealousy between the artists. Plus I don't want to accidentally hurt anyone's feelings.
Hope you guys understand, and thank you for reading!

Advice on Writing Realistic Game AdaptationsA reader sent me a note recently and asked for advice on how to make a Zelda novel realistic. After I wrote my response, I thought it deserved to be highlighted to other fans / writers that might ask me the same question, and I get these kind of questions a lot. So here was my advice to :iconFrostThrone:Advice on Writing Realistic Game Adaptations10 months ago in Personal More Like This
"Oh goodness. A fine and demanding question, that is. Hmm...
I guess I would say that to make it realistic, you have to accept that you need to stray from the game in places, take your creative license and allow yourself to explore. When I first started the first few chapters were very "by the game" but it eventually became what it is (like chapter 1 explores MUCH more of Ordon). To make it real think about it's story, it characters. What's interesting about them? What things are in Link's room, what's the story behind the objects, give them life, maybe he got something from a friend, yada yada. What are his hobbies, how does he pass his free time?

Hello there again my blooming flowers!
A few days ago we announced the winners of March's Repeating Contest! Today we put a start to April's Contest!! Are you excited?? Keep reading to see what we will be doing this month!
A little F.A.Q before we get started :iconjumpingla-plz:
How does this work?
Every month I'll give you a theme and you'll have to create a Manga/Anime styled entry according to it
Is Fan Art or Fan Characters allowed?
I'm afraid not Only Original Characters and universes are allowed. Your Naruto based OC, for example, isn't elligible to enter or win.
Can we submit pre-existing works that fit the theme?
Nope. All entries must be made specifically for this contest, old artworks won't be accepted.
Alright! Now that we have the basics down, let's get into serious bussiness!
