Secret Santa EventBeen talking to a few people and was thinking of holding a Secret Santa Event. If you are interested in participating please post a comment on this journal entry. You will have two weeks to sign up, and the rest of time from 11-23-12 to 12-24-12 to submit your secret Santa submission. This will be worth some Yuan and hopefully kick start some more art submissions. The idea of the secret Santa is to draw the other person's character in a winter theme picture. Some people might be really busy with school work like finals and projects, and also holidays with family and friends. The submission could be a sketch or a doodle, anything really. It doesn't need to be the next Mona Lisa or anything. Please do not sign up if you feel that you will not even have the time to draw a sketch for the person. People will be paired up at random. Please be respectful and remember to keep this a secret. Do no tell anyone. If you have an idea for your character that you would like to see you can post it as

Republic City is an RP-themed group that will be following and directly correlated to the events and happenings of The Legend of Korra as it airs on Nickelodeon. Characters that join the club will be living out their everyday lives within the walls of Republic City as the world around them is shaped and molded to the decisions of Avatar Korra.

RulesBelow are the rules and conduct this club will follow, so be very sure to read them closely and keep them in mind during your time here! We want everyone to have a good time, and the rules are set to ensure that.Rules3 years ago in Personal More Like This
These are the “common sense” rules. If broken, the mods will respond by issuing a warning. If broken again, it could result in removal from the group.
Be Respectful - If there are other members RPing in the chats and you would like to join, please ask them first. If you jump in, odds are you’re interrupting a plot the two may have planned or are trying to flesh out and well...that’s pretty rude, don’t you think?
No Bullying - As stated above, we’re all here to have fun. We get that drama happens and that’s just fine, but in no way do we want drama to escalate into something that could potentially be bullying. If we receive any reports of such things happening in the chatrooms, you can be sur

Contest Starts: May 5, 2013
Contest Ends: July 1, 2013
Rules: One entry per member, at least 2 characters in your entry
Because the alternate universe-themed memes are so popular right now, the first contest's theme will be dedicated to...yes, you guessed it: alternate universes! Your mission is to draw at least two Republic City characters implanted into a new universe. The universe could be an original alternate universe or an already established alternate universe (like from an anime or a tv show). The more detailed and involved the piece is with your chosen reality, the more points you’ll score. Hints: detailed backgrounds, outfits, and multiple characters are a plus and will be considered when judging begins.
And now, onto the good stuff…Prizes! There will be one grand prize winner and five runner ups.

To celebrate the start of the summer vacation (or what is summer vacation for most of us), the next event is all about summer fun! And what better way to celebrate the warmest season of the year than with a day at the beach?
In order to receive yuan for this event, you should:
1.) Find somebody to RP with (or several somebodies) and RP a day at the beach!
2.) Draw a scene from your RP on the official meme template and upload it to the correct folder.
Any scene is welcome, but if you’re not sure where to start, here are some ideas:
Attacked by a sea serpent!
Romantic moments under beach umbrellas!
Kicking down sandcastles!
Putting on suntan lotion!
Exploring tide pools!
For this event, anything goes! It’s completely up to you and your RP partner(s).
This event will run until July 30th, so the

The voice acting casting is over, thank You!Hello everybody!The voice acting casting is over, thank You!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just few days ago I announced the voice acting casting and now, when it's over, I must say, I'M OVERWHELMED with the amount of help and submissions to the animation project! ;A; Overall, I've got over 250 submissions that I'm still checking out (so I'm sorry If I my replies are a little delayed..But I'm just a person, not a company X'D). Regarding to the fact that I've got so many submissions and the choice of the actors is constantly getting harder for me (some of them were so great I've been nearly spasming due to the excitement), I've decided that I'll announce the cast on Monday 21th Thank You once again for all Your concern and interest in the casting and project overall, I promise to submit more works in progress from the project as soon as we have something new

very sad news everyone.this is the day we have all wished would never happened to this fandom. Next Monday is the day we wished would never come. Next Monday is going to be the worst day. We are all going to relive something that all of us have hoped would never happen again. So next Monday on nickelodeon at 5:00pm and then again for some reason at 7:00, DO NOT WATCH THE LAST AIRBENDER MOVIE AT ALL! Instead, why don't you watch regular show then adventure time on cartoon network at that time. Or better yet, why don't you get up from your chair at 5:00 pm next Monday and reply slam your head against the wall until all you can see is blackness. That would be better then going thru that again. Or maybe just watch regular show then adventure time on cartoon network, that maybe for the best.very sad news everyone.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Deviant DiscoveryDeviant Discovery2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
WHAT IS DEVIANT DISCOVERY?
Deviant Discovery is a weekly Journal Feature that focuses specifically on Deviants that have good art, but haven't gotten much attention for it. Every week, a new Deviant will be chosen, and a few of their artworks will be show in this Journal, along with a description of the artist themselves. This weekly feature will serve as an attempt to get under-appreciated artists more attention then they already have.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It will work in a similar way to Daily Deviations - either I could select a Deviant myself, or someone could be suggested by another Deviant. Once a Deviant is chosen, we'll find their best five Deviations to be featured in the Journal. Then, we'll give a short description of the artist's work, and a small explanation of why they were chosen. The feature will remain on the front of my page for seven days [168 hours; one week], so that the Deviant can get continuous attention. Suggestions could be s
New Commissions Portal Coming SoonOur team has been testing an early version of our brand NEW Commissions portal. On the Commissions Portal you can find ALL of the (currently) 26,000 available Commission offers from artists, neatly categorized by Style, Type, Price, Popularity, etc. It's awesome!New Commissions Portal Coming Soon2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
When we launched Commission widgets on Profile pages a few months ago, I personally didn't find them to be very helpful by themselves. Without a directory of available artists for commissions, and what commission options there are from across the whole community -- I couldn't be sure that I was buying the right thing.
The new portal (which will be accessible right from deviantART.com's home page) has added an incredible value to my life since I've been playing with it: The ability to easily commission artists!
Because the commissioning process exists in-line on the Commission area, I was able to facilitate 5 commissions in an initial 2 minutes and 30 second

We'll begin accepting new member applications for consideration starting on June 1st. If you're interested in joining RC but don't know where to start, check out our Application, Rules, and F.A.Q. journals. (Quick links can be found at the top of this journal.)
Like the last time we opened applications, the submission window will remain open for a month and a half. BUT, if you decide to work ahead of the submission date, please don’t send us your completed app until June....if you do, chances are your application will get lost in our inbox.
Anyway, we'll release more information closer to the end of the month. But if you have any immediate questions, feel free to comment or send us a note. One of the mods will get back to you as soon as we can. Until then, happy creating, and feel free to spread the word!
