George Eliot is the pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans (1819 – 1880), an author of books and poems. She used a man’s name when she had her works published believing she would be taken more seriously than had she been published under her own name.
One of her most famous quotes is:
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird, I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”
In order to be eligible for this contest, you must photograph one or more of your dolls in a way that you believe best fits the quote. All submissions must be entered into the Delicious Autumn Contest folder no later than Friday, November 2, 2012. Entries will be accepted immediately upon this post.

We just want you to know, we deliberated everyone's entries carefully and impartially (meaning we pretended not to know any of our dA family members).
To Everyone who entered, we appreciate your entries so much, and judging was so difficult, all your entries were amazing.
We have a first, second and JOINT third place. That's how close it was.
Ok, so here goes.
1st place goes to
With her poem "Faded Words (Blood Red)".
We thought this poem was a really strong entry, and the fact that there was no visual to accompany it, yet we felt every emotion included, was a strong indicator that she deserves this!
Some of her best works shall be featured in the group journal, as well as mine and the co-judge's personal journals by tomorrow afternoon.
Second place was really close to first place, by a marginal decision.
And it goes to...

Well it seems the extended deadline didn't help at all. I am going to again extend the deadline to September 1st. If we haven't received any more submissions by then, I suppose that first and second will be awarded to the two current entrants, and the group will probably not hold any more contests for a while.

Clockwork ContestHello, dear steampunk lovers!Clockwork Contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We announce that our Clockwork Contest is opened!
Starting 10 June.
Ending 1 August.
So how does this work you ask. Well, the thing is that you will challenge for the most interesting steampunk related story!
The contest accepts three types of art: prose, poetry and graphical novels (illustrated stories, something like comics, but with bigger accent onto the story rather then onto art).
What are the rules?
First of all, you have to be a member of our group, #SteampunkForever.
It might sound a little silly, as you can join it whenever you want as well as leave it whenever you want, but as the contest takes place here, it would be fair that only members can take part.
Your story should be put in the Clockwork Contest folder.
To be absolutely sure that you didn't miss the correct folder while submitting it, please, add Clockwork Contes

Pokedex Challenge Submission GuidelinesConditions upon entryPokedex Challenge Submission Guidelines1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Okay so basically to have a successful image for this challenge there are a few things you need when you submit.
Your title for the image can be anything as long as it is appropriate. Highly recommend "#Number Pokemon"
The image must be the correct Pokemon you have picked.
Make sure you do not do an over the top background. The white background idea has been scrapped.
Not all of them have been done but when you submit, you can submit without the dex entry but you will be asked via note to include your dex entry for the Pokemon. Even if you didn't base your art work off the dex entry it needs to be included.
Harmless advertising (optional)
You have the option of saying "This is for %PokemonFans4ever's Pokedex Challenge." Thus, may get more people involved.
Your artist comments. (optional)

CAR DECAL CONTEST
Hello people! c: It's been forever since I held a little contest and thought this would be the right moment to do so again ^^
What's a decal? A car decal is a sticker print used to decorate a part of your car or other vehicle. This can be for the door, window, side, front, etc. Since I recently got my own car I am looking for a cool design to possibly put on the left side. This is mostly to cover up a big scratch caused by the previous owner but I also to give the car a personal touch Here's a picture of the car: http://goiku.deviantart.com/#/d4shzfm

Vaporeon Contest, choose a theme! LOTS of prizesHello, it's time for my first contest as new founder of the group. I really do want there to be a lot of participation, so I'm going to give a prize to each person that enters. Yes everyone gets a small prize.Vaporeon Contest, choose a theme! LOTS of prizes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To enter the contest, choose a theme from the following list, and draw a picture that fits that theme.
Theme 1: Mamma (or Daddy) and child
Just as it sounds, draw a pic with a small Vaporeon with a big Vaporeon. Or maybe the Vaporeon is the parent with a Eevee baby, or egg. As long as there is at least one Vaporeon in the picture, there are many possibilities!
Theme 2: Vaporeon in love
Draw Vaporeon in a lovey/cuddly picture with either another Vaporeon, or Eeveelution, or could even be another poke'mon. The point is they are in love!
Theme 3. Vaporeon in battle
Draw Vaporeon using one of it's moves. Vaporeon has a lot other moves than water gun, and all have the potential of looking awesome. If you want to see a list of Vaporeon's moves, click here htt
