TF2 Contest-- THIS TRAIN IS OVERI have decided the winner(s) and have sent everyone their respective points--and I officially have one last point remaining for the sake of having the contestant prize a specific number. (Everyone knows what I'm talking about)TF2 Contest-- THIS TRAIN IS OVER1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The next contest will have items from the game as rewards--seeing as how I'm now broke in terms of dA currency.
These items can be anything from hats to weapons to tons and tons of refined metal.
I hope everyone had a nice time and has a nice rainbow-filled day.
Since I'm sick and tired at looking at over 2000 points that I don't plan to ever use (because after they closed down the shop... who really cares anymore. I don't want a premium so...?), I decided that I'm just gonna hold a TF2 contest and give someone literally almost a year's premium.
This is going to be a very casual one--not that many restrictions because it would be like taking away all new weapons and making us use stock for the rest of our lives.
Stock is fun--but only to an extent.

In desperate need of help *Update*Previous journal:http://klydekiss.deviantart.com/#/d57v436In desperate need of help *Update*2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you can recall I pleaded for help recently due to my horrid financial situation and I'm here to update my status for all who were concerned.
I will start with the bad news:
-I am still in the same situation and sadly I was forced to drop out of school. I absolutely tried the best I could. I've emailed staff for help, I've been in the financial office almost daily but nothing helped.
After speaking with my financial adviser, she told me to get away from my school. She said the school over charged students and was meant only for the rich, she was right. I guess I figured I deserved a higher education.
I'm not ready to downgrade though. I am giving it my all to transfer to Parsons NewSchool. Parsons is more expensive however, due to it being a non profit school, I will receive more aid. I am also eligible for a 2 year scholarship for my junior and senior year which would be

Since the amount of entries is much higher than what I expected, I decided to add a few more smaller prices to mention other good designs, even if I won't be keeping the characters. There will be 5 other winners of 100 each!
I'm very picky when it comes to designs, and I know it won't be easy to choose, there are already many good designs. And the contest is not over yet, I'm still expecting to see other great entries!

What I wish is to have one (or more) animal character(s) I will like enough to use/draw/etc. But I can't seem to be able to create an animal OC I like enough by myself. I have plenty of human OC that I never post but whatever but no recent animal OCs I really like. So this is why I'm holding this contest
DeviantArt Customisation ExplainedThis article, is my attempt to help answer a lot of questions I get from people asking about various ways of customising your dA experience. I attempted numerous times to write out a tutorial with code specifics but then I thought, no, there are already enough tutorials out there that are probably more specific and accurate than me. What I thought would be best, would be to compile a bunch of resources in an organised and explained way, so that you can each learn for yourselves the best way to customise your dA.DeviantArt Customisation Explained4 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Every point helps!
What is the 100 Themes Challenge?
100ThemesChallenge is a group that aims to inspire artists with a challenge. Many artists suffer from artist block from time to time, and sometimes the best way to fix it is to appeal to the side of our nature that rises to a challenge. We hope to motivate artists of all types with themes, short prompts, and contests. 100 Themes Challenge simply gives artists a starting point... you go from there!
How does it work?
There are five variations, each with 100 themes. You can pick your favorite variation from the 5 pre-existing ones or mix and match themes from multiple variations. When you’ve decided which variation you’d like to work on, pick a theme and use it as inspiration to create!

Like every single day, so over time naturally you would need to replace the nib. But being me, I just always forget to buy it.. Every time the pen becomes non responsive I would smack it like a disobedient bitch until it works again. Well guess what.. it reached a point where I need to smack it once every minute. You wouldn't believe the pain I went through with the Valentine's day picture, what could've been a 3 hours artwork ended by being 6 hours.

My number one question that others ask me is "What do you ink with?"
I use Kuretake brush pens. Here's a link to a sable hair brush pen that I love, it's the closest thing to a real brush I've used. It is pricey though. http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-40-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Sable-Hair-Refill/pd/3958
The less expensive version is the synthetic hair, http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-13-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Red-Body/pd/2661 this brush pen is similar to a Pentel brush pen. http://www.jetpens.com/Pentel-Pocket-Brush-Pen-for-Calligraphy/pd/1793
The cool thing about these Kuretake brush pens is the refill cartridges have nice ink in them that I use, but if you find you don't like the
