Ups and DownsHas there ever been a time, when your life felt so bad
That you just want to cry and go to bed
It really feels like it's the end, but it's just getting started.
Hopeless thoughts swirl around my head – is this madness I have entered?
But then there was a ray of light
Thrown to me like a coil of rope
And so I let myself hope
So now each day seems a little brighter
While the darkness grows ever slighter
Then the shadows came back
Something in my mind went crack
And so I sat alone in my bed
Now things are bad,
But will only get worse.

So it's that time of year and I'm still stuck in an art block. Hopefully, this will help get me inspired again I'll consider this a mini-contest since I'm unable to give as much prizes as I'd like. After thinking about it, I've decided that I'm not going to be giving art prizes (my To-Do list is still full ) but I'm going to offer something that I think will be more useful to you Read on to. see what it is <3
Minicontest! 5 colors only!I was about to sleep and came up with a contest idea, so Im typing it down before I go to bed!Minicontest! 5 colors only!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please do not join my contests if you are a sore loser and will complain if you do not win! I am getting very tired of seeing people complain and hate themselves for not getting a placement, I dislike people fishing for symapthy. There are a lot of people entering my contests and not everyone can win. I like to give out high prices which means less places. Drawing should be fun and not just to earn some prizes. Thank you!

Sorry for making you wait for too long. This challenge doesn't have much entries like last challenge but more quality entries. That makes me so happy it means somehow we are improving. Isn't it cool?
Now I would love to announce 5 top entries here:
:iconsirocco-rc: - :iconmollus: - :iconlu--24: - :iconYun-Afezeria: - :iconAeylan:
Trust me, I want to have top 10, not only 5 at this time so bad cause there are some very nice other entries too. That's why it takes me more than a week to choose top 5 ;^;
And for peoples who couldn't make it this time, please don't be upset. As the point of this challenge is not for winning but for improving and it's like a motivation for us to draw/work more on art .
Please never stop working and improving your skills. Well, I have to back to practicing more now too, ^^

Pokemon Gijinka Contest (closed)//EDIT: Even though I said which Pokemon were my favorite, I would love to see all them done~Pokemon Gijinka Contest (closed)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
//EDIT: ;A; No one made a Leafeon Gijinka yet~
My first time holding a contest. It will be a design contest. The point of this contest will be to design a male or female Gijinka of one of the six Pokemon listed.
~Gijinka (擬人化) is a Japanese word meaning "humanoid", "personification", or "anthropomorphic", although the use of the word outside of Japan has come to be slightly different from the use of the word "anthropomorphic" in the anime/manga/furry/etc communities. Rather than referring to just any animal with human characteristics, a gijinka is most often a fan re-design of an animal-like character in a human or humanoid form, (ex: a Digimon or Pokémon).
So I know everyone's art style is differ

EDIT3://Due to request from many people, I have extended the deadline until MARCH 20TH!!
EDIT2://Lots of people have been showing interest and entering for Part 1 and I'm in love with so many of these awesome entries! I have decided to award 300 points to one or two extra entries in exchange for the rights to the image and clothing. This is because some entries are similar when you peel off their clothing yet when clothed, are very unique. In the end for my persona, I'll probably combine the 2-3 winning entries for a final look, possibly with alternate outfits from the winning entries. Once this has been judged, I'll note the winners with this offer and it's up to you whether you want to accept or not! Thank you~
EDIT://If there isn't enough entries/interest in this contest, I'll either extend the deadline or take off some points for the prizes.
So basically, I've bee

Contest is now CLOSED!!!! Judging will commense
Calling all members...I wish I didn't have to say this..but we had another severe rule breaker, one of the worst we've had here at :icondrawanime: Some stole artwork from other deviants and used those pieces to enter our contest...this is beyond pathetic I'm sorry. I think it goes without question we DO NOT accept stolen artwork here, and neither do we accept members who steal artwork from other people. Those who are caught doing this, will be banned permanently from the group. Period. Thanks to all the wonderful people who did enter kindly, just thought I'd throw that out there if there was anyone else looking to steal work and try to pass it off as their own.
Edit - Since someone already broke the main rule of the contest, I just want to repeat to the other contestants: Your entry MUST be made specifically for this contest. It's okay to submit it to other contests, but the main one and the focus of you

Simple Design Contest- Judging!Right so I was pretty inspired by silly-boat's contest in how they used minimalistic colourations (black and white) as the subject. I tend to have some pretty somewhat complicated/complex designs so hey maybe it'll be pretty cool to have a simple design contest.Simple Design Contest- Judging!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rules are very simple: The character/creature must be completely monotone (gradients accepted) save for a single off colour (preferably a neon one or something that stands out) that can be used in only ONE area. (except for eyes)
For example say I have a wolf. That wolf is black with white socks and a stomach and has red eyes however the off colour could be two simple dashes below its eye but that colour can't be used anywhere else on the creature. Pretty simple huh?
-Only monotone colours can be used, save for that single off colour [Monotone pertaining to black, white, grey gradients]
