Paint my OC...winnersAnd here are hardly expected winners from our Paint my OC contest (official contest article). There are 6 winners from two categories, so that means there are twice 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Each winner will get many awesome prizes. There were so many amazing entries that it was really hard to choose winners (winners were chosen by me and my sister). Semi-finalists you were able to see in this journal. All other amazing entries you can check on buttons below of this journal.
Here is the list of judges who selected 10 semi-finalists from each category. All semi-finalists you can check in this article.

And now I'm finally posting semi-finalists from our contest Paint my OC. Judges and even I was busy lately, so I hope you'll understand why they needed some time to make their decisions (after all... there was so many amazing entries). And I think it's time to finish this contest. All prizes you can check in this article. I hope I'll post winners tomorrow, so you won't have to wait too long.
What homework judges had Well, each judge had to choose 8 semi-finalists from each category (there was drawing category and painting/coloring category). Here in the journal I posted top 10 drawings/paintings which got most votes, from each category (paintings in journal are not in order from many to less votes...it's random).

Tarot - OC Contest!! CLOSED!!!Tarot - OC Contest!! CLOSED!!!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
OK! So the contest is officially closed and I want to say that there won't be winners 'cause the entries are all too much beautiful and I can't choose...
Of course I'm kidding you... Let's be patient 'cause voting will be hard. VERY HARD, as all the entries are really amazing.... But no worries!!! The other judges and me will start our hard job immediately and we will announce the results as soon as possibile.
Please... Be patient because it will be VERY DIFFICULT for us. °__° I'd love to give a prize to every single entry... though this is not possible... T^T.
Let me thank you EVERYONE joined!!! Thank you guys. I love you. I appreciate so much the effort you put in your entries... making each of them unique.

Challenge 6 - Angel/Evil - Top 5Congrats:Challenge 6 - Angel/Evil - Top 52 years ago in Art Features More Like This
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, ^^
Please don't forget to drop all loves for out wonderful entries: http://hellobaby.devianta

Creativity is Cool Contest--less than one week!!!The Contest is over!!!! Now the judging shall begin!!!!!Creativity is Cool Contest--less than one week!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We have decided our theme will be Creativity is Cool
This contest is somewhat different: We will provide you with different stock images: Four of people, four of interior shots, four of outdoor/landscape images and four 'unusual or 'difficult' images. Now your mission is to choose one (or more) of those and get as creative with it as possible! You can use any part of the stock images in any way you like--so long as it's recognizable as having come from the image. Imagine all the different possibles!
Here pure skill is not as important- A perfect portrait might get not as much recognition as a really creative piece with the same stock base.

Spirit Day 2012"Ultimately, I want Spirit Day to make just one person feel little bit better about his or herself, to feel safe enough in their own skin and to be proud of who they are" - Brittany McMillanSpirit Day 20123 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In memory of the young LGBT people who lost their lives to suicide, Brittany encouraged her friends to wear purple on a day in October -- a day that came to be known as Spirit Day. Since then, GLAAD has helped turn Spirit Day into a global event that inspires millions of individuals, celebrities, TV personalities, media outlets, companies and schools to wear purple in a stand against bullying.
While Spirit Day does focus on the LGBT community, I believe that it's anti-bullying message is relevant to every community. It only get's better, if we take the pledge to make it so.
Practice compassion and understanding, and treat others how you would like to be treated and we can make a difference.
Show your support for this anti-bullying me

Traditional Artists Contest *more or less closed?EDIT:Traditional Artists Contest *more or less closed?3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello Traditional Artists
Today was the last day of my commission contest. I'm very thankful to all who have participated for their kindness and good will. I have chosen 3 works to buy as it was my primal intention and soon I'll be contacting the authors so we can agree on the terms of purchase.
I was contacted to extend the contest period, but as you can easily understand, this is not a regular contest: I think that any of you, traditional artists reading this, who have the will to produce a piece accordingly the rules below can contact me any time to show me a WIP or a finished work. If I like the piece, I'll buy it
Also below (scroll down to the end of the article) you can find my favourite works, wonderful pieces, just like I was looking for.
For now I'll remove the references I don't want any more but I'll keep the others available until the end of January 2013, so you are welcome to use them as I'm still commissioning you!
Thank you to all
Seniority Announcements - December 2013Seniority Announcements - December 20131 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after Senior Member accolade -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out

Love the Stache!Hi everyoneLove the Stache!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Movember is quickly coming to a close and the shave-off events are eagerly awaited by our Mo'Bros who have suffered through all sorts of mo-mishaps over the last 28 days. For those of you that have participated, I thank you and ask you to make the last two days really count and reach out to your friends and families for those last minute donations.
For the rest of you, I am making this final push on behalf of all of the deviantART Sta.sh teams to request that you reach into your pockets and make a donation, regardless of how big or small, to the Movember effort. I realize how hard this may be considering you're likely broke after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but should you find a dollar or two - we would greatly appreciate your donation
The amount isn’t important, every little bit helps Movember continue its funding of world-class programs. If you want to know more about what you’ll be helping to fund, you can visit

As mentioned, slowly moving this project aside for now. This year's been pretty "monotone": been drawing only graphite miniatures with the exception of one normal sized Supernatural fanart and decided to, depending on how much the uni, lack of time, energy, motivation, etc. allows, to fill the rest of the year with completely different drawings - in size, medium used, subject, to add some variety to this year and the gallery in general.Big Weekly Features!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

The Neglected Importance of the Online CommunityWhat is the Worldwide Online Community?The Neglected Importance of the Online Community3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Worldwide Online Community is simply a group of people from a wide variety of countries and continents who come together to share their skills, experience, and/or love for a subject. Online communities are a fairly new faction and are not fully understood, their importance is neglected and may not reach their full potential until the next generation incorporates them more and more. It wasn't until the '90s that the Internet or World Wide Web really became a part of the culture, but in less then 20 years its impact has changed society from top to bottom.
In order to really delve into the importance of the worldwide online community, one must first define what it is. There are hundreds of different definitions of what an online community is, but this statement is generally accepted throughout these definitions.
Worldwide online communities are groups of people who join together on the Internet with a common int
