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.

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

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!

During the month of November each year, Movember asks men across the world to grow a moustache (or Mo') with the aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Mo Bros are helping to change the face of men’s health by effectively becoming walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by promoting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Together, we are truly changing the face of men’s health.

And I'm back for the feature... oh my, I wasn't here for almost 2 weeks Sorry cuz of that, but I have to make ton of stuff for college, so I probably won't be here that much in next upcoming weeks. So I hope you can also wait for my new stuff which I draw (a little slowly...I paused process cuz of school ).
But I also have great news for you. One of my newest drawings which I still draw, I record. So soon you'll be able to see on our YouTube account whole process how I draw my paintings. From sketch till finished piece. But I guess I'll have to post it in few parts (cuz I already draw it more than 14 hours and I just started ).
And here is the feature. I featured some amazing character and environment pieces by great artists all around dA. If you like these works, then fav them... and you can also fav this article and help these artists, so they can get more attention. Thank you and I hope you enjoy this feature

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!

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 20122 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
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: Adoptables4 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.

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
