Help NeededHey guys,
So there has been too much abuse to letting people submit pictures automatically. Too many put into wrong folders, and some bad deviations and things that don't belong in the group, So it will take quite a bit to get things sorted out in the gallery to proper places.
I will need help in getting at least two admins to help vote and clean up the folders. Please let me know via a note if you would like to help out the group. Perks to being a mod is being able to put one deviation a month into the featured folder, helping out with contests and more.
ALSO thanks so much for a ll the info on help in learning about casting resin dolls.
DONT FORGET! Live BJD Auction at tophatter, http://tophatter.com/auctions/3783 July 13, 3pm PT let me know if you need an invite to join tophatter, al I need is your email. So send me a note with it. We need more rsvp's to get more items listed so please make sure to do that~

Clockwork ContestHello, dear steampunk lovers!Clockwork Contest3 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

Barbary Whelp Contest is Closed!Contest Closed!Barbary Whelp Contest is Closed!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
These little guys are examples of our barbary whelp.
We will NOT be commenting on submissions: don't want to show any favoritism! Also, if you don't post your signal-boost link for your second, third, fourth etc. entry, it will NOT be counted.
The immature version of a barbary drake (adults coming soon), they're so named for their barbarous nature (mind your fingers). Barbaries are voracious eaters, and when full grown quite capable of tackling prey larger than itself (mind you there isn't too much larger than a full grown barbary). Hatchlings display a wide variety of colour patterns, often in outrageous combinations. These bright, distinctive pelts are thought to advertise the immature drake's venomous nature to any would-be predators. Although somewhat unpredictable in captivity, whelps imprinted at hatching can be domesticated with some measure of success.

The Pricing-Guilt Phenomenon"I have a question about the extreme price."The Pricing-Guilt Phenomenon5 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a message I recently got regarding a listing of my latest Baby Jackalope art doll on Etsy.
That was the extent of the message. No please or thank you, no actual question stated besides the inferred comment that the price of my artwork is a gouge.
I realized that although the tone of the message was rather rude, it's a question artists get asked all the time and an opportunity for me to stand up for artists without sending an equally rude reply to the likes of "If you do not like the pricing of my original art, you can go to Hallmark and buy a cheap stuffed bear made by the thousands using near slave-labour in China". I do not feel that anyone should be obligated to justify why and how the pricing of their craft translates into how much grocery money they end up with at the end of the week, but this might be helpful or at least reassuring for those of us who
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 prizes3 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

SO many people are entering this giveaway! Telling the truth I never expected more than 40, absolutely not over 130 and counting! O___O This of course make me super happy! I really cant tell you how much it mean. Thank you all who have watched me, faved, spread the word and more!
And because of this I feel that 1 winner isnt enough. I must totally give more people a chance to win, therefore instead of 1 winner, there will now be 3! 3 people now have the chance to be the lucky winners of one Wolf Masked each!
And of course I will pay the shipping cost for all of them!
I really wish I could give a prize to all of you, you deserve it like nothing else! But that would leave me making Wolf Masked for one year to come. XD I hope you still understand how friggin amazing you are! THANK YOU!!!
I just checked my stats and realized Ive got over 2500 watchers
Prismacolor Marker ReviewHello, :iconpeachfuzz: here. If you are interested in Prismacolor markers and their uses, then this might just be worth a read. I currently own a 144-piece set, and have run dry several smaller sets in the past year and a half. For this review, keep in mind that all colors that are capitalized (i.e. Violet or Yellowed Orange) are the actual color names of the markers used in the examples. All examples used are credited to the original artist (Mostly me) in the description as well as in the link.Prismacolor Marker Review10 years ago in Personal More Like This
PRICES: As with all Prismacolor products, the markers can be quite spendy. I have seen them anywhere from $1.50 to $6.00 per marker. From personal experience, I would not advise paying much more than $2.00 per marker, especially when buying in bulk. Individual markers are always more expensive, but anything over about $2.75 a piece is unreasonable. When on the trail of good deals, surfing the net and checking out art supply sites is always a good idea. My personal favorite is DickBlick.c

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.
