Damn. I accidently converted earnings to points and these 1713 points have been sitting in my account like... forever. Thing is... at the moment I don't want any prints and I promised myself that we'll decorate the new home only with photos, my hubby's dinosaurus painting (it's so awesome!) and some stuff I did. Plus the wall of fame with fanart I got. My subscription lasts some more months so no need on that front as well.

Anyways... usually I hate point raffles because the journal section is literally cluttered with it and I can't find the interesting stuff because of these.
But here you go. One time point give away thanks to half-wake accident conversion.

Fav the journal entry. That's important because otherwise your name isn't in the list for the winner.
No points splitting... one happy person will get all and that's it.

Winner will get picked by a number picker.

Deadline: January 24th midnight European (I'm in Berlin...) time

On a side note: Anybody who wants to donate Kulla or Chubbanimals Fanart for blank house walls is my hero. :D

On another side note:
I am part of a bigger journal entry Annie did. It's mostly for beginners and eventually interesting for some people. As most of you know I'm a chronic workaholic if I'm not a lazy bum napping on the couch so don't get scared of the answers. ;)
Should You Become a Professional Artist?Community Week
Do you enjoy art passionately and are considering doing it as your job, but have some worries such as;
        :oops: Will I enjoy it as much as a job?
        :oops: Will it be hard getting a job?
        :oops: Will I become a starving artist?

If you're like me, you're asking yourself those questions and are letting them give you a hard time deciding whether or not to pursue art professionally. My health teacher told me, as we digressed from our topic of smoking, that to know whether or not you want to do a job, you have to hear what it's like from someone who's already doing it. That's why I decided to do an interview with professional artists on dA to give me, and hopefully many others, answers to these burning questions and an idea of what it's like to be a professional artist.
Okay, well let's get to it then :la:
This is quite long so if you'd like to jump to a section, here are the questions I aske

If you have any additional questions let me know. Some people already used the option to ask me. I can't promise to have an answer for everything since I'm not an 8Ball but.... I'll try.

Happy raffle participating. And for me...  back to tea and board game tiles. Yay O_o

Prinack Contest! Win 3 month PM or 650 pts!

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 26, 2014, 12:42 PM

Edit: I extended the deadline to May 3rd since I'm gonna be on a trip during the week of the 26th...

So I decided to host a contest since I have a lot of points and don't know what to do them...

This contest is gonna be very simple. All you have to do is draw a picture or write a story about my all time favorite crossover couple Prinack. (Princess Morbucks/Jack Spicer)

Things you need to know!

  • Must be related to Princess Morbucks and Jack Spicer (obviously)
  • There is no specific theme. I'm giving you artistic freedom to do whatever you want.
  • I'm not judging this based on artistic skill or how well you write. It's mostly on how good your ideas and concepts are. So everyone has a chance.
  • Both drawings and writings are allowed.
  • You can enter more than one piece.
  • You must put effort into it. If you don't, you're just wasting both of our time... (that's kinda self explanatory... I'm not gonna pick a 5 minute doodle as the winner)
  • There's gotta be more than 10 contestants by the deadline, or I'm canceling the contest. So try to spread this around if you can.

How to give yourself a high chance of winning

  • Go through my gallery and figure out what kind of stuff appeals to me or stuff that I really really enjoy. Try to figure out my personality (should be easy). If you do that and enter something revolving around my interests, you'll have a really good chance of winning.

How to enter

  • Upload your entry and mention my username in the description like this "@ princesscallyie"
    but without the space
  • Or you can just note it to me.
  • There will be a contest folder at :iconprinack-fanatics: but I'm gonna manually put the contest entries in myself. Meaning you're not gonna be able to do it.

The Grand Prize

  • The winner of this contest will have a choice of a 3 Month Premium Membership or 650 :points: Just one or the other, you can't have both.
  • All other contestants will be featured in my journal for a few days....

The Deadline is April 26th May 3rd

  • (It's a just a simple contest, so I don't think you'll need more than a month. And also, that's the day of my college orientation, so I'll be very busy after that.)
  • There will be a widget on my front page as a reminder along with thumbnails of all the current entries

Okay, that's all. Good luck to anyone who enters, and if you have any questions just ask me. :la:

Et aujourd'hui, j'ai pris mon stylo, parce que, moi aussi :

Mercredi, la France a été attaquée dans ce qu'elle avait de plus précieux : sa Liberté. Liberté d'expression. Liberté d'opinion. Liberté de la presse.
Et pourquoi ? Parce que deux hommes n'ont rien trouvé de mieux que de vouloir venger des insultes faites par des dessins. Se sont sentis menacés par un crayon. Sérieusement, vous vous êtes sentis menacés par des crayons, des dessins ? Et vous avez eu besoin d'armes pour ça ?  12 morts. Parmi eux, des dessinateurs, des journalistes. Et des personnes qui, simplement,ont eu le malheur d'être là

Les gens se rassemblaient sur la place et on sentait comme une attente. Comme si personne ne savait vraiment comment se comporter.
    Mes pensées faisaient échos aux leurs. Je ne sais ce que j'attendais. Je suis venu pour montrer mon respect aux victimes, pour défendre les valeurs de liberté et d'ouverture d'esprit. Je suis venu égoïstement pour marcher et me vider la tête.
    Il y a eu les cris pour la liberté d'expression, les applaudissements, les marseillaises. Il y a eu les frissons. Il y a eu le provocateur qui crie « La France aux français », slogan souvent scandé par notre extrême droite, et la foule qui réagit en scandant « Charlie

Aujourd'hui je vais utiliser mon droit à la liberté d'expression.
Je ne laisserai pas quelques esprits dérangés, qui tuent sous un nom ou prétexte changer cela.
Dans Paris aujourd'hui, alors que je travaillais à quelques rues de là, 2-3 hommes sont entrés dans les locaux de Charlie Hebdo, un journal satirique et ont abattu 12 personnes, notamment 4 dessinateurs très connus, surtout pour leur verve et satire.
Je n'écrirais pas sur la haine et la violence, car cela n'engendre que la même chose.

Par contre j'écrirai sur ma détermination d'avoir le droit et la liberté de dessiner, d'écrire et créer sous quelque forme que ce soit et en utilisant tous les outils à ma disposition, y compris la satire humoristique afin de faire connaitre mes idées et convictions.
Ce sont ces convictions qui guidaient les journalistes, dessinateurs, policiers et employés. Ce sont les outils qu'ils ont utilisés.

Comme l'a dit l'un des dessinateurs lorsqu'il a appris qu'il était devenu une cible après avoir fait des caricatures de Mahomet : "Je Préfère Mourir Debout que de Vivre à Genoux."
Je suis sûre que, lorsque les assassins ont appelé son nom, il s'est mis debout.

Voilà ce que j'appelle la vraie foi."…

You Don't Deserve a DD

Thu Oct 11, 2012, 11:56 AM
You might deserve a Nobel Prize (pluripotent stem cells omg).

You might deserve an Olympic gold medal.

But you're never, ever going to deserve a Daily Deviation.

neuropls what is this.

Dudes, a DD is a feature, not an award. There's no objective standard that goes 'here you deserve a big prize now.' Hell, it's not even about the artist being a talented young newbie or a curmudgeonly old fart.

It's about the art.

It's about bringing underexposed art to the forefront for a whole day—yeah, as far as features go this one is probably a bigger deal than being in a journal only twenty people click on, but at the end of the day it's still a feature. Nothing wrong with getting excited over it (or peeing yourself or wondering whom you managed to piss off), but it's not exactly resume material.

So now that we've gotten that out of the way…. There's the occasional journal or forum post floating around, wondering how the hell these things get picked and, usually, why they haven't gotten one yet even though they post so much writing. And the funny part is that despite concerns being responded to at length and by a much nicer person than myself, people keep doing it. So these blogs keep being necessary. (Hi, StJoan!)

I want to say now that if you're sour grapes over never having got a DD, this isn't the journal for you. Actually, this isn't the site for you. Your attitude needs a major adjustment. Hating on someone for making you think you need to work harder or put yourself out there more doesn't make any sense. And it's not doing the community any favors when you spread your hate around and get other people to jump on the baww bandwagon.

Frankly, I don't see anyone go around claiming they 'deserve' a DD for spending two hours making a drawing with bad anatomy and inaccurate lighting, especially if they know they're just starting out in the world of drawing. (Not that there aren't well thought out ideas on what a DD is from Digital Art GMs CVs.)

I get that literature is a lot more subjective, but you need to respect the fact that anyone who gets featured has put in a lot of hard work. Maybe not into that particular piece, but into developing themselves as a writer. There's nothing stopping you from doing the same, but until you do, don't expect a thing.

But yeah, a little bit of insight: picking DDs is a lot of work okay.

There is no super-secret special tool we get to make finding awesome literature easy. It's literally the same thing you do, except since this isn't personal favorites, the criteria have to be even stricter. (Okay, fine. I'm anal about what goes into my favorites anyway. Hush, you.) And, while you can favorite stuff as infrequently as you like, it's important to get at least one lit piece featured a day, so omg hunt hunt hunt.

Sifting through every vaguely interesting piece that floats by, looking for the unnoticed gems, takes forever. WHICH IS WHY YOU SHOULD SUGGEST MORE THINGS, INCLUDING YOUR OWN STUFF. Even if they're not selected, that's another artist on my radar who wasn't there before! And that's a little more time I can dedicate to finding ridiculous GIFs working on community projects!

Now, there's this huge misconception that getting a feature is a game-changer. I can tell you from experience that it rarely means more watchers or even hits on the non-featured stuff. And that's how multiple DDs happen. If someone has an amazing piece with ten whole views then it doesn't matter how many previous features they've gotten, that work deserves its own place in the spotlight. (Check out each person's suggestion guidelines, there's usually something about this.)

Yes, there's a preference for first-timers—of course there is—but at the end of the day, what matters is the art. I don't get the kind of people who feel the need to comment "tl;dr" on anything more than a hundred words, but it's a lot more honest than the people who say everything sucks when they're too busy being resentful to read it. Guys, the site knows not every feature is going to get all the fans. FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?

Anyway, this is your open invitation to ask any and all questions about the process. I can't guarantee my answers apply all the time, but there are a lot of misconceptions that need a kick to the face and this is where it starts.


:iconbeccalicious::iconthorns::iconnicswaner: <- your friendly lit CVs!


The awesome skin is still ^pica-ae's, and the awesome GIF stash is still ^Pixel-Spotlight's. I hope you weren't expecting more of a different Doctor, =LadyofGaerdon. (David Tennant makes the best faces OKAY. ;p)

But, seriously, talk. If you're afraid of voicing an objection here, note one of us.
