Congratulations. Your prize: free art picture.
The whole "fave the journal"-rule was a scientific experiment. Getting this extra-attention is nice, of course, but I think I'll keep these lotteries small and personal in the future. I don't, understandably, want someone to come in just for the lottery and free art potentiality. But we'll see...
The next sirtiefling-event should be one of them "use your creativity"-contests. So be ready.

New World OrderThough the pseudorganic silicaceous lithotechnology of previous eras is lost in the ruins of Teotihuacan, the mighty Aztec still dominate central Mesoamerica from their floating island city of Tenochtitlan. Embellishing on the frightful zoomorphic creations of the vanquished warrior Toltec, the Mexica have spawned a terrifying realm of living demigods where feathered serpent dragons--and countless less-describable abominations forged in imitation of myth and legend--produce and gather the blood required to feed the seething synthetic deities at the heart of the Empire.New World Order2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the Yucatan rainforest to the east, the Maya lords of Tikal wage a perpetual twilight guerrilla insurgency against the savage tlatoani with armies of fanatical warrior priests clad in insectile biomecha.

Transliterations: Modernising Myths So it's Valentine's Day here and I'm off to buy shoes to go with my posh frock for my fancy dinner because blue moons just come around sometimes, but I thought I'd pop in to remind you that there's approximately forty-eight hours left to submit something for the contest. So to all you stragglers, you revisers and last-minute magic-makers, you photo finishers: pull all the stops out, stop arsing about and get those entries in. Think of it as a Valentine's gift to words.Transliterations: Modernising Myths3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At the request of participants and for the sake of my own failing sanity, the Modernising Myths Contest will be extended by ten days. This means that the new deadline is February 15, giving you until the day after Valentine's Day to complete your entry--and if you still need more time, I suggest cancelling your Valentine's Day plans and finishing it then. Because we all know you love writing more than you love your partner. And if they're reading over your shoulder, I'm sorry, but they had to know som
World Building Tips(somewhat Nuzlocke Specific)World Building Tips5 months ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of people have asked me about how I world-build and I get a lot of comments about it so I guess... I do pretty well???
So I'm going to attempt to explain my thought-process and process for world-building:
World-building basically comes down to doing your homework.
No seriously- make and fill in a worksheet for yourself (I’ll be posting mine for you guys to use if you want to).
Think it through- all aspects of it. And when you answer your questions, consider the theme of your nuzlocke. Your world and plot should follow the same theme and I think that's how you make it interesting?? Like, don't try to be edgy and interesting- just connect the dots in realistic ways.
In the case of The Fall, it has a pretty distinct dark undertone- so all of my answers had to reflect that, on the surface, things might look okay, but this is canonically a world where there’s one visible police officer/government official who is completely useless and it’

Square Enix - I applied a couple of years ago.Here's a little personal story for my art friends.Square Enix - I applied a couple of years ago.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
About 3 years ago now I applied on a whim for a position to join the Square Enix Visual Works team in Japan. I expected not to hear anything back. I applied with a nice letter, a link to my folio and a 'top secret' link to copious amounts of NDA work.
I was blown away to get a personal response about 2 or 3 days later from one of the Art Directors on the team.
It was very blunt and very straight forward. He told me that I had a very unique style and that my artwork was great, He loved the heavy, solid feel and saturated colors but he had reservations about how far I could push it towards realtime cinematic work. The exact words he used to describe it was " Imagine an offline rendered character that we see today, we need to see that, modelled and textured in a stylised, fantastical final fantasy way but for use in realtime applications." He went further on to say "The stylisation is in design choices, not materials, which are to be very

THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR INTEREST AND TO THOSE TAKING PART!!
This is a challenge open to anyone of whatever age, skill or style. The goal is to make a pokedex entirely of Pokemon paperchildren! Or Papermon for short.
We'll be doing the first 151 Pokemon to start with! With everyone's ideas combined, it would really make a fun and original pokedex created by several Deviant artists and a huge achievement for those who participate. There are a lot of Pokemon so the more artists working together; the better! If you'd like to join PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BELOW!
WHAT IS A PAPERCHILD?
A paperchild is a cut out of a character or monster etc that you have drawn and coloured, usually by hand, and is no bigger than your hand (normally!). Many Deviant artists have made them to look as though they're interacting with how you hold them or the environment around them, making it fun to come up with poses to draw them in!

The Black ZodiacI was watching the Thirteen Ghosts on tv and I was interested in the Black Zodiac. It's a little different than the movie, but here's what I could dig up:The Black Zodiac5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Contrary to popular belief -- this is NOT based on the movie 13 Ghosts. The Black Zodiac is actually the dark and tortured counterpart to the solar Roman Zodiac that was exposed in the Necronomicon, the book of the dead. The movie 13 ghosts used the signs of the Zodiac, but changed the names to fit the ghosts for the movie.....these are the real names and descriptions of the Black Zodiac, as listed in the Necronomicon. Find out your Zodiac's dark counterpart.
Aries = The Selfish King (March 21 - April 20)
Your sign is of the Mesopotamian God Marduk. He slayed Kingu (sometimes referred to as a Demon) and created Mankind from his blood. In order for Marduk and the other Gods/Goddesses to be at leisure, mankind was made to suffer. The selfish king represents Aries and is ruled by Marduk the Mesopotamia god.

The Holiday Card Project returned in 2013, and it was a total hit! We received over 5,000 cards from 2,000 deviants in more than 60 different countries! A ton of deviants reached out to us, interested in helping to distribute cards to their local hospitals! With these volunteers' help, we distributed cards to 22 hospitals in the US and abroad!
The majority of the hospitals we worked with distributed the cards themselves, either through their own volunteers or by placing cards on the food trays of patients. We received letters of thanks from some hospitals, and a few even shared our cards on their Facebook pages! One thing all of the hospitals and patients had in common: they loved your cards!
One of our biggest surprises this year came from Bank of America! A deviant who works there got word of our project and told some people around the cor

WISDOM NUMBER THREE!!! Work smart and leave your comfort zone. This part is my qualifier for art school, tutorials, and educational resources in general, because they can be good, but only if you make them good. Once you've gotten in to the habit of drawing consistently, it's important to start being mindful of what you're drawing, how you're drawing it, and why you're drawing it. A key ingredient of success is hard work, but if that work isn't purposeful it might not move you

In part two I'm gonna talk about one of the biggest roadblocks I hear from artists who are having difficulty getting in to good study habits, so without further ado...
WISDOM NUMBER TWO!! Don't wait for perfect weather and stop making excuses. So often I hear things like "I don't want to waste paper" or "I don't know what to draw" or "I haven't found a good tutorial" or "I don't want to study perspective" or any number of things along those lines. I'll be blunt and just put the answer out there now: get over it. If you want to be an artist, you have to do the work, end of story. And with all the time you've spent thinking, wondering, being uncertain, and searching for that magical art secret of power, you could have filled 10 pages in your sketchbook today and inc
