My dear friends! This is my second time to organize art contest. Last year the competition was great: was more than a hundred persons, and not less than 50 members who have passed the work. The magnificent arts and an incredible amount of ideas and imagination, as well as the means of their implementation.
I would like to repeat his stunning success, and from that moment I announce Art Contest 2013 is open!
I promise you even more prizes, art prizes and more valuable - cash & point prizes. A variety of promotional gifts. And, of course, participation of guaranteed prizes!

This year's competition will be judged several judges, where the winner will be chosen by a vote, and the results will be submitted and posted in the shortest possible time.

The list of judges:
1. Aria Linara
2. Shadow
3. Agniya
4. IzaPug

A little about the topics.
Last year's and my personal experience has shown that for talented man insufficiently one or two topics. He needs space to "flight", but we need some concreteness. After weighing the "pros" and "cons" I have created four wonderful themes.

1. Roads. What do you associated with the word "road"? Personally for me - it's the joy of distant travel, unity, interesting places and landscapes of incredible beauty. I would like to know what it means to you is the road. Drow anyone of my characters and if you wanted any from judges characters.

2. Friends forever. I, Agniya and Shadow best friends. In this topic draw us together. May be this is been weekend on villa or shopping.

3. Stylization. I'm giving you a chance to come up with their own theme, but you have to style it. What is a pastiche? Pastiche - is a fitting image for a well-defined criteria. Stylization may be stylistic (decorative forms) and colored (for example, you can choose 3 colors and perform all work in these three colors). Make sure to include the topic title and / or the type of styling.
Aru`s reference sheet by LowerSunMeliongoliah by LowerSun=Bridget-Amelia's Reference Sheet 2013= by LowerSun=Tapashi`s Reference Sheet 2012= by LowerSun

4. The fourth theme is different from all previous ones, though, because will be given a very broad field for the imagination. The bottom line is that it gives you large number of characters, you just have to choose one of my own and any number of characters of the characters judges. I have to say that you can draw anything you want and the number of characters in one picture is not limited.

On the note.
I, Shadow and Agniya are the best of friends, and all other judges is my friends and acquaintances.
Basically, all my characters are as close to nature and, therefore, the habitat is corresponding.
If you do not know what type of performance to choose, then choose what you do best. We do not have any particular preference. Digital can win as well as working in a traditional style.
Friends do not delay contest "for later." The sooner you draw the job, the better. We will have more time to admire your work

Kohu's Summer Contest! [CLOSED, judging!]

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 9, 2013, 12:37 PM
Update on September 16th: This contest is closed! I'm currently judging, and will have the results no later than Wednesday of this week. :) Thanks so much for participating everyone, there are a ton of amazing entries!

Update on August 30th: A few people have been asking, so the contest has been extended to September 15th. Please get your entries in by then! Also, I've added a couple more prizes to the main art contest.

Update on June 27th: This is still open, about two months left to enter. :3 I'm going to keep trying to work on refs of other characters, but in case I don't get around to it, I'll probably be doing another contest eventually anyway. ;3 So please don't wait on other refs to enter (it takes me so long to do them, lol, I = slow]. If there's a character you really want to do that isn't there, you can check out the next contest. :3 Also, I have re-opened the advertising contest, so check it out! You can win art. :) 

Update on June 8th: Still working on refs, hope to have more hammered out in the next few weeks after I finish my last two commissions and make some headway 
on collabs.

Update on May 23rd: I decided to increase the prices/prizes a little. :)

Alright, both contests are open - the art contest, and the character design contest!

It's summer, and I've wanted to do a contest for awhile now, so here you go! :3  The contest begins now! There are two main art contests - a general art contest, where you draw one or more of my characters, and a character design contest, where you design a character for me. <3 There is also an advertising contest. 

I'll be adding more characters in the coming weeks, so don't fret if you don't see someone you want to draw yet. I'm redoing some of the character designs that I had originally (Ua, Ragai, Ari, etc.) so if you want to draw anyone except those listed below, please wait until I finish their new references. 

If you  have a question, please ask, and I can try to add it to the list of info below or start a FAQ if I need to. 

Art Contest Prizes
First place $75* and a 3-character colored fullbody picture with background
Second place $35* and a 2-character colored fullbody picture with background
Third place $20* and a 1-character colored fullbody picture with background
Fourth place $15* and a 1-character colored fullbody picture with background

  3. The number of honorable mentions will depend upon how many individuals enter the contest. Starting out, there will be 3 honorable mention slots. Honorable mentions will also get dA :points: (a pool of 3,000 :points: will be split between however many honorable mentions there end up being). 
  4. Everyone who enters the main contest (not the character design contest) and does not win a main prize will get to split a pool of 1,000 dA :points:

Deadline Info: 
  1. These contests will begin on April 12, 2013. 
  2. Deadline for these contests is September 1st, 2013. It may be extended by one week after the end date if people are still working on their contest entries, but you must note me beforehand to let me know you'd like an extension. 

Art Contest Info:

  2. I like all kinds of art (digital/traditional/etc.) so you can do anything, I don't have a preference for style, you can do anything (cartoon, realism, semi-realism, etc.). Writing entries are not accepted, however, sorry! 
  3. You may enter more than once, and you can win more than one prize.
  4. You may enter pictures that have more than one character, but please don't cross stories (for example, Kohu now has her own story, so please don't draw her with Tumoja/Ashki/Ari/etc.). I will be adding more characters as I finalize their looks. 
  5. I will be judging based on artistic quality and creativity. 
  6. If you have any other questions, comment here or note me please. I will be adding more characters over the summer as I draw more of them, so don't fret if a character you want to draw doesn't appear here yet - I'm still working on their reference! 
  7. To enter, send me a NOTE with a link to your picture, and state whether you're entering the art contest or the character design contest. You MUST post on DA so that I can link to the thumbnail. Please don't put the image into DA storage.

Inheritance Characters

Setting: Africa. The Lion King III: Inheritance is a fan story that continues after the events of The Lion King I and The Lion King II. Obviously the Pridelands are one of the main settings for the story; the hyenas live deep in a desert just outside one of the mountain borders. I'll add a few more places a little later when I add more characters. You may draw the characters with some of the TLK characters too (Kovu, Kiara, Simba, Nala, etc.). :> 

Character #1: Fura
The daughter of Shenzi, Fura nurses a bitter hatred towards Simba and the Pridelanders after she saw her mother pulled down by the 'brutes' before her very eyes. After a little mishap with the Pridelanders' heir, Kopa, Fura flees with her clan to the relative safety of the desert. There, she grooms her daughters, Ua and Siha, to ultimately return to the Pridelands and reclaim their birthright. Fura clearly favors the eldest, Ua, the stronger and far more outgoing cub. Such obvious favoritism is slowly but surely inciting a very dangerous rivalry between the siblings as Siha grows desperate under the torments of her brutal, spoiled sister.  
Reference pictures: Inheritance - Prologue Page 1 by kohu-arts  [Cub image coming soon]

Character #2: Tumoja
The eldest son of Kovu and Kiara, Tumoja is next in line for the Pridelands throne. The trouble is, the heir - who is, sadly, the 'runt' of the litter - is too shy, sweet, reserved ... and something of a coward. Although they love him, his father Kovu and even his grandfather Simba are worried about his ability to take over the throne, with all the pressures a ruling King must deal with. Worse, his younger brother Ari teases him at every chance he can get, partly out of jealousy over what Tumoja will one day become. Eventually, his sibling's taunts and his father's doubts drive an adolescent Tumoja to run away from home during a time of rising conflict in the Pridelands. 
Reference pictures: Inheritance Reference - Tumoja [Cub] by kohu-arts (Adult image coming soon)

Character #3:  Ashki and Zeze
The youngest child of Kovu and Kiara, and their only daughter, Ashki is the the intelligent, logical one of the family. Unlike Tumoja, she is more than capable of sticking up for herself, and tends to express exasperation with her older brother Ari and her cousins' antics. Preferring the company of Zazu's only daughter, Zeze, over her rambunctious and often bickering siblings and cousins, Ashki is more often found roaming around the lands, learning all she can about other creatures and  making friends in the unlikeliest of places. She occasionally has a tendency to express a know-it-all attitude, but her heart is in the right place. 
Reference pictures: Ashki and Zeze by kohu-arts [Adult images coming soon]

Character #4: Coming soon. 

Messengers Characters

Setting: Post-apocalyptic Morocco, around 5024 A.D. 

Character #1: Coming soon.

Kohu's Story (no name yet) Characters

Setting: This story isn't very well fleshed out yet, but it has a great deal of Tibetan and Chinese influences - think snow, cherry blossoms, pavilions, mountains! 

Character #1: Kohu
Very shy, very quiet, very unsure of herself. More coming soon as I work on her story. :3 She has two main pelt colors - one a 'winter' pelt that's more grayscale in color, and a 'summer' pelt that's a bit more warm-gray in coloration (and her nose has a splash of paler pink to it with her summer pelt). 
Reference picture (winter pelt): Kohu Reference by kohu-arts Tibetan Mountains by DolphyDolphiana

Character #2: Coming soon. 

I think that's it! Please read everything before you note me with a question. :>

-Please no halloween themed finkxes, I already have a list of halloween finkxes I'm going to be making that have their own special stuff going on, having one that is fall theemed is ok though (or pretty much any other theme out there, finkxes can have any colors and theme so don't limit yourself to just fall because its october lol)
-Please post a link to your entry here on this journal so I can find it easily and don't miss it for the contest. I will ignore any links sent via note or other method.
-feel free to post questions here! especially so that if someone else has the same question they can see the answer in the comments (I'll feature comments with questions and their answers to make them easier to find)
-finkxes that are made official wether by winning or paying the fee at the end of the contest can only be traded or sold for the same amount that the fee to make then official was.
-Absolutely no tracing or copying of anyone else's art or characters, If i catch anyone copying stuff from others they will be blacklisted from the contest and possibly from further myo/custom/auction events if it is really bad.
-please follow my TOS

(please no glitched contract finkxes for this contest)


common, uncommon and rare trait sheet, also body types: (remember, traits can be mixed together!! you don't have to stick to just one traits appearance as long as it doesn't exceed the rare/mutation/super rare trait limit!)
+SPECIAL WING/EAR NOTE: the markings and colors of the inner wings and the inner ears pretty much always match, they also usually have the same edge type as the ears. I also wanted to make a quick note that inner ears usually have some sort of lacy or interesting design on the inside of them (see finkx examples for examples) and they don't have soft fades on the inside of their ears, but segmented gradients are fine.

Tips for Being Recognized on deviantART

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 19, 2013, 10:46 AM
Hover a question to see the answer

Skin by pjuk

~~ So it' so occurred to me that many deviants here on this site still have no idea how to be noticed for their talent, art and ideas. So I'm going to offer a few tips I found useful.. I hope you enjoy this.. And remember.. These are all just from personal experience.. I do not know how much it'll pertain to each individual, but I hope some still help!.... So let's get started! :iconba-kyunplz:  

Recognize and be Recognized!
All of us as deviants do enjoy recognition in their artwork. Taking time to browse other artist's gallery or message stacks and :+fav: artwork that jumps out at you makes people feel good and encourages them! Also, in doing this simple action, most people take the time to view your page, say thank you and even gift :llama: badges! And you never know.. They just might like what they see! You can never :+fav: too much of people's wonderful art!

Don't Just :+fav: and Run!
While :+fav:-ing is a great, quick way to show appreciation for other artist's hard work, just looking at the thumbnails isn't probably what the artist was going for. Art is meant to be viewed in full view! So click on that thumbnail and really take a moment to pour over the deviation, read the artist's comments, and offer your own comments. deviantART was built on the foundation of sharing art and offering praise, advice and critique. Taking 5 minutes to write a thoughtful, in depth comment as opposed to "cool, cute or nice" or just not commenting at all, will probably make somebody feel really good and smile! Thoughtful comments are what people strive for on their art. Think about it, an artists probably spends an average of 1-2 days, give or take a few days, on their artwork, why not take 5 simple minutes out of your life to acknowledge it? :iconyea-plz:

A :+devwatch:aholic!
If you like someone's art.. For goodness sake :+devwatch: them! Don't get lazy! It takes but 3 seconds to click that button! This simple action shows you're willing to support them in their future art. And be active as well.. We all know once in a while deviantART becomes slow.. Well when that happens hop onto your favorite artist's page and see what they're up to! :iconcutehiplz:

Fanart is Art!
What I've noticed is that people who draw fanart, and not just replications of pictures already existing, but art of canon characters with their own twist, seem to gain popularity quickly! Now don't get me wrong, I'm more of a fan of original art myself, but I do enjoy seeing interesting pictures of my favorite Vocaloids, Anime/Manga characters, book/movie characters ect! Fanart is a great lead way into being noticed, and there are tons of great artists out there who draw both canon characters and original art! So go out there and be a fan of something! :iconsmile-luplz:

Home, Sweet Group!
You might of already guessed it, but submitting art to groups is an amazing way to have your art recognized! Groups were designed to be a commonplace for people who share the same interests as you! There is a multitude of groups, with various interests and likes! From Anime groups, to OC groups, to Writing groups, to groups for all art in general there is sure to be at least one group that suits you and your likes! You can find groups by going to deviantART's scroll down menu and going to the little :house: icon that says Groups! Submit to groups often and don't be afraid to expand the kind of groups you join! :iconyuiswayplz:

No Secret Admirerers here!
If you find you stumble across artists who are particularly inspiring to you.. Tell them! No, not just "I Like your art" :iconorekihuhplz: Seriously.. It's meaningless! No, write a deep, thoughtful and heart felt comment for them! They may be popular, but they're still people and do have feelings! There are not many artists here that feel they're 'too good to reply' so dont be afraid.. comment and tell them how you feel about them and their art! :iconkairiaww-plz:

Turn off those Stacks!
Message Stacks! Turn off the little Stack annotation so you see all of the deviations that come separately! That way you're more likely to see art that catches your eye! You get used to it after awhile and find it to be actually very helpful! :iconclannadsmileplz:

I don't like spam.. I'm a vegetarian.
While art is loved and accepted here, please don't spam us with sketches, WIPS or linearts (unless of course it's for a commission or something of that sort). Thats what your Scrapbook is for! :iconforcesmileplz: Submit your beautiful finished art! While WIPS are always fun to see, we dont want to be overwhelmed with them!

Be Active on this Site!
deviantART offers many opportunities to become an active member here! Contests, polls, discussions.. Everything! Seize the opportunities!Not only does deviantART host multiple contests and stuff, but so do groups and fellow deviants! What can it hurt to join? You've got a shot at winning prizes and an opportunity to expand your skills! The more people see you around, the more likely you'll get acknowledgement. My daddy always said "You ain't gettin' a tan hiding inside all day." ... :iconyuihuhplz: Actually no he never said that |D wat :iconheplz:

Sugar and Spice It's Important to be Nice!
:iconislapyouplz: Sorry for the lame title... But it's very important to be nice!:iconchibikylesocuteplz: Show kindness and genuineness to your fellow deviants! Being rude, mean and cold is not a very approachable attitude. Being nice entices people to get to know you and your art more! :iconizayawinkplz:

Make friends and Be yourself!
"A friend is worth ten thousand fans. ~ Unknown" This statement rings with truth! Whats better than a website that you can share what you love doing, and meet people who love what you love too! A kitten jumping out of a cake in a bikini... *cough* With some sexy male stripper- I-I mean.. Nothing of course :iconmiradafijaplz: //dies This ties back with commenting and being nice! Just talk to people! Be yourself and don't be afraid to be silly! :iconflirtwinkplz: People like to laugh! There are so many great people here! Just dont be afraid to talk with them! :iconrubcheeksplz:

Sharing is Caring!
So, you've heeded these tips and you've become well known among your group of friends and watchers! But the thing is, you know a friend with amazing art and talent.. But they're shy *coughorlazycough*. How to get them more recognition? Well this is a little tricky, first, perhaps link them to this journal :iconrightneplz:, next, features! You've seen them everywhere.. Feature journals, feature spots on deviant's pages, features in groups! Try to spread the word about them, feature them on your page and suggest them to be featured! Also, you may suggest your friend's art for  DD's! If you do not know how to suggest a Daily deviation here's how: :iconsexythumbplz:

Don't get discourgaed.. These things take time!
Please, please, please do not fret so much about being "popular" as much as improving! deviantART is not a place for being subjugated into "popular" and "average" artists... Everyone has a unique style and everyone can become great artists.. You just have to put time, effort and practice into it! Don't worry! You'll get better over the years.. Just keep doing what you love and everything will fall into place... :iconmoewinkplz:

So. Much. Pain.. :iconimfaintingplz: Haha this took 2 and a half hours to put together... So I hope you find this somewhat useful! Please, please, don't be mean! This is meant to help people, and its only based off personal experience. But if you feel like your tip deserves to be up here, and it isn't already, feel free to comment and I'll most likely put it up here! :iconrightneplz: Thank you for reading.. And have a great day! I hope this helps! ~~ :iconchibikyleloveplz: And remember~~

deviantART loves you! :heart:

Kthanksbye :iconhakasenyanniplz:

:heart: Acts of Random Kindness Contest

Winner: Mommy-of-Ein

My Kindness Quilt by Mommy-of-Ein
Please see the prizes you will be receiving at the bottom of this journal.

Unfortunately, even with a month-long extension, most participants were unable to finish their quilts. With that issue, does anyone have any suggestions for how we should approach or run the next Kindness Quilt Contest?

:star: The Contest Specifics

Start date: November 1
End date: December 31
Quilts accepted: After October 15
Gallery: ARK Quilt 2012
Category: Community Projects / Projects & Clubs / The Kindness Quilt
Voting begins: January 1
Voting ends: January 15
Winners announced: by January 20
Subject matter: Family Memories or Winter Holidays
Resources: Quilt Pack and Quilt Square
Submission Requirements: Must be in the form of a quilt AND tell a story. Quilts accepted in sizes 3x3 and 4x4 (3x3 demo quilt - if you are adventurous enough to do a 5x5, we will accept those too). Quilts must be positive, no thought/talk bubbles, must not use anything against dA rules, must credit all resources properly and may not be a group collaboration. Any visual medium can be used to create the quilt squares (photography, digital, craft, traditional, manipulations, etc). Fanart IS accepted. Bases ARE NOT accepted unless you can link to the original base showing it is not against dA rules (many traced bases are - judges will be picky when it comes to use of resources). ONE submission per participant. Participants need not be a member of deviantHEART.

:heart: Judging and Judges

:bulletpurple: Judges
:iconilantiis: :iconhardrockangel: :iconastrikos: :iconnamenotrequired: :iconrubykinomoto: :iconjamminjo:

:bulletpurple: Judging Parameters
Judges will be judging on creativity, impact of the story, establishment of mood and artistic improvement of the chosen visual medium. While entries must display some artistic knowledge, artistic style and ability will not be pitted against other artists. Instead, for the purposes of artistic improvement, each participants art will be judged against the most recent art in their gallery that is the same type as their quilt. So if an artist uses photographs to create their quilt, judges will look at the most recently submitted photographs in their gallery to see if they tried to improve upon their technique for this contest.

Yusch People! This is another Oc I adopted (Still changed a lot of things).
I Named her Momoko, but she prefers Momo or Tama.
I already had written some Informations in the Picture about her.
But now I'll explane some more infos about her.
Momoko is transexuell.
She is a Girl but she feels like she was born in the wrong body.
That's the reason she ties off her chest (to have a flat chest). Her naturall hair colour is brown, but she dyed some parts of her hair blond.
She has a weakness for Alcohol.Formerly she drank a lot of it to come to terms with her transexuellity.
Also she feels attracted to woman. So no Men would have a chance on her.
Her formerly Village is Kiri Gakure, but now she is a tramper and hikes from Village to Village. So she isn't sedentary.
Momoko gots the Jonin rank but she prefers not to fight people except she has no alternative nor choice to dodge them.
I could Imagine her as a Calm, dominant Person.Not shy.
Her element will be Suiton. Her strengths will be more into Ninjutsu.
And she is also Single.

That's all I got for now.
