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.

* The Favourite Showcase Feature: Pretty In Graphite - Females
Feature: Adoptables This is a feature on the world of adoptables. If you aren't sure what they are ( since I've never done any) you see it explained here:Feature: Adoptables6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
These adoptables are either up for sale now, or else closed. But if it interests you, there are many talented artists who make them regularly you might discover!
I am not expert on these, so if you see something interesting, best to ask the questions to the artists this journal will give these artists more exposure.
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.

First, the results of that "Watchers Feature!" test some of you helped with: after 2 weeks there's still less Favs than people featured on the latest one http://diamond4girl.deviantart.com/journal/WATCHERS-FEATURE-pt-23-318773207 , but nonetheless, with some more Favs than usual, the feature ended up in the Footer for about a day and half and your works have been seen by 3-4 times more people than usual. (1100+ on the latest one vs. >400 views on the few previous ones). Thank you all who helped with the test. I consider my theory relatively proved, so it's up to you what you do in the future. Btw, glad some of you finally figured out you can fav Journals!
In case you missed it, but you're interested, I wrote a little "tutorial" on making features, especially big/huge ones and all in extremely time saving and easy way AND with your thumbs all arranged nicely in your Journal http://diamond4girl.deviantart.com/journal/Tutoria

Let's face it. Everyone wants their 15 minutes. Or in this case, 20 minutes. This weekly feature is for those artists out there who have the talent but may not have all of the viewers they'd like. All of these pieces have 20 favorites or less -- give these artists some support! And let's thank our awesome contributors that make this feature possible!

It takes me a while to put these together, so if you commented on my other journal to be featured, please take a look at everyone else's work too. After all, it's only fair that way and if you don't, it's just a little selfish and your conscience will bug you . So yah, share the love, guys! Faving this journal might help
These are ordered first come first serve style; I will be showing around 50 pieces at one time (I still have a lot to go through and it adds up every time i put up a feature journal), and be featuring once a week as to not clog up your message boxes. It'll probably take ....a few months, so please be patient!

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

In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
Hey there, my name is Anne—some people also call me CSS fairy - and I'm just a glitter spreading, CSS loving random person from Germany. DeviantART is part of my life since 9 years already. While I started with traditional and digital art, I am now doing kind of everything. I love baking, crafting (with plywood for example), designing and just giving new things a try in general. I am a communication designer, who just enjoys being creative in all ways possible.

I know that many deviants have had a rough past year. I know I have. For some, it was the economy, for some changes in their families and loved ones, and I know for some it has even been on deviantART. We have all had struggles, but this time of year, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, is as good a time as any to thank people for what we DO have.
In this world of little, we all have something we hold dear to our hearts. Now is the time to say thanks.
So, what I would like to invite everyone to do is in the next 48 hours (Today + Thanksgiving), fave this journal to show your support, then comment with 4 things you are thankful for:
1 thing on deviantART you are thankful for
1 thing with your family, loved ones, friends, etc. you are thankful for
