☆*:.｡.Design Contest .｡.:*☆
I know I've been promising you a contest for a while, so here it is!
The concept of a design contest, incase you don't know...Pretty much you design me a new OC and the two winners (I'm picking my two favorite!) will get the prize and I will get ownership of the OC you make me. If you don't win you are allowed to do whatever you'd like with your entry. Some people sell it as an adoptable, or keep it for themself. I made a list of things I'm looking for in an OC, for inspiration
This must be a new character. This means it was made after the contest started.
Any medium is allowed, as long as I can clearly see the OC! So a bad quality picture would not be the best f
People people people peopleToo many people misuse terms like anxiety disorder, panic attacks, OCD, and phobias, it's starting to tick me off. Everybody feels an amount of fear and discomfort doing certain tasks, everybody performs odd rituals or behaviors at some point, yet these people use it so casually, such that I nor others cannot take these seriously anymore; I cannot distinguish which one's are serious and which one's are from whining.People people people people1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much call bullsh** on "phobias" people claim to have on random things these days. Most of them are not even clinical phobias, and as far I understand things like "phobias of telephones" is seriously a symptom to a much bigger problem, like social anxiety. I am incredibly afraid of making/taking phone calls, it causes me to lose half my day and endless coldsweat, but I highly doubt I have a phobia of it. Labeling it just feels like an excuse to not deal with and further investigate your issue, and i
Pytho Draco Design Contest - WINNERSIT FINALLY HAPPENED! I picked a winner!Pytho Draco Design Contest - WINNERS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A funny personality to go along with a fantastic color scheme. I've been enamored with Heston since he was first entered. I enjoy his colors and the way his reference sheet was laid out. Aledles is the first place winner.
I was waiting for someone to do a black/white design. And this one is fantastic with the large patch of white on the shoulder. I like how the mane is striped as well and Singe has purple eyes. Very nice! Soulphur is the winner of second place.
Look at this chubster! I definitely like a round character. Bango is adorable and I like his gradients. chirpeax is also the winner of second place.
IF YOU DID NOT WIN - PLEASE READ THIS JOURNAL:
The 'Givens' of Nuzlocke StorytellingAll right guys, I needed to make a new journal anyway and this is a topic I've thought about for a really long time. It's about stories and the assumptions we make in order to tell them. Get ready for a great big essay!The 'Givens' of Nuzlocke Storytelling2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I realize after rereading that this post might be taken as very accusatory... I am NOT out to discredit Nuzlocke storytelling as a whole, I'm out to explore the way we tell stories and the mechanisms we sometimes use to do that. The 'givens' I describe here are also called Acceptable Breaks from Reality. I don't think these mechanisms are at all 'wrong' just because they might have unfortunate implications attached, and besides, the unfortunate implications CAN be remedied or subverted with some critical thinking and plot prodding if the author really thinks it's necessary. I write about this so that authors can have a better awareness of possible weaknesses in their story, so they c
serkan ridge contest? details updatedEDIT: The characters you enter are so we can draw the them in the comic as a prizeserkan ridge contest? details updated3 years ago in Personal More Like This
to actually enter you have to make a short video or comic based on serkan ridge to help promote it and spread the word!
(just to clear up the confusion)
first of all, thankyou for all the suggestions in my last journal, youve gave me lots to have a look at and keep busy c:
okay so hear me out
I was thinking not many people seem aware of Serkan ridge, though the fanbase It has (im hoping i can call it a fanbase) is very surppotive <3
and I thought, since im planning on getting the first few pages done digitally soon- the ones for print
the first few pages show two dogs getting killed
(and im sorry Db but for the sake of advertisement this sounds good X3)
Ive decided instead of the original plan of two random dogs getting killed by etch, why not let the fans have a chance?
so ve decided to hold a contest.
the winner gets to 'design' or have two of thier characte
Ideas on NPC creation!Many elements behind our most recent NPCs have been randomly generated, and here's how we do it!Ideas on NPC creation!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. We come up with a general story or direction we'd like our cities / events to go in, and we create several characters to fill those cities and events with.
2. We think about what each of those characters would do in the cities/events, what their roles are, what they offer to the story as a whole, etc. We pick a race here, too, based on what we'd think would be coolest or most impacting.
3. Now that we have several very basic ideas of what we want, we use Marnok's NPC generator, which can be found here: http://marnok.com/content/_adventure/101npcs.php
This gives us a randomly-generated list of 101 very basic ideas for NPC personalities every time we refresh. We'll come back to it in a minute.
4. We then go to http://www.random.org/
5. We count how many characters we've just created for our city/event/story, and we use random.org to select one for us.
[PRIZE UPDATE] DRAW MY CHARACTERS CONTEST!Brooksie, what do I need to do?[PRIZE UPDATE] DRAW MY CHARACTERS CONTEST!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Alright guys, your mission for my first contest is to draw my characters! Ah, but there's a little twist. I want you to follow a theme.
What do you mean a theme?
Sorry, you can't just go all willy nilly and do whatever you want c:
The theme is.. actions! Simply pick an action you want to depict (skipping, fighting, running, etc.) and use one or more of my characters to do it. Be creative and have fun with this!
Alright, alright. Who can I draw then?
Here's a list of the characters you can pick from!
Roderick - Male
This is my 'sona, guys. He's a goofball who has witty comebacks to everything. He loves his video games and is always caught up on the latest movies. He's totally into sports, swimming and taking naps in the sun.
Rivka - Male
He's a lot more serious than the others, but totally enjoys a good joke or two. Extremely active, loves morning runs, and has a weakness for snicker bar
Robin's Pants PSAAs you might know, my comic's protagonist is fairly androgynous--Professor Birch asks "are you a boy or a girl?" because he literally can't tell. (He then labels Robin a 'borl' and moves on without ever getting a real answer.) Unfortunately, Robin's ambiguous appearance has caused a lot of ignorant, bigoted attitudes to come crawling out of the woodwork. Please be warned that from now on, I will call you out if I find you leaving cissexist or transphobic comments or jokes on my comic. This really isn't a big deal... I'm not going to start publicly shaming anyone, I will just start pointing out any problematic comments that pop up instead of letting them 'slide'.Robin's Pants PSA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Basically, if your joke boils down to, "having a nonstandard/hard-to-determine sex/gender is so abnormal and freaky, haha!" then I will call you on it. If your joke hinges on making fun of gender pronouns or using 'it' jokingly, then I will call you on it. If you talk about what sex/gender a person

This has happened at least once.
Also the journal needed changing since it's not Halloween anymore lol, and what better way to do that than through a journal comic!
In hindsight the fact that all my girl friends have rather ample chests didn't help the issue.

You are not a nice guy☆ Happenings ☆You are not a nice guy9 months ago in Personal More Like This
...if you think being a "nice guy" (or girl) entitles you to a romantic/sexual relationship with someone.
People are apparently being murdered over this now.
This whole idea of being entitled to sex and relationships from whoever you want because you treat them like a decent human being, and how dare they reject you or have bodily autonomy, seems to be spreading like a virus. Obviously this is the extreme of the extreme, but I see it constantly; these attitudes, the idea of the "friend zone" or being "friend zoned". It's scary that so many people think this way.
Human beings are not some trophy or achievement you earn for being "nice" and never will be.

Thanks for all the entries! I'm going to try to finish adding them (got one I'm waiting on) judging will then ensue.
(I'll also try and comment on all of them, sorry there's so many x_x )
Hurry hurry if you're entering! Little time left!
Lots of prizes added! We need as many entries as we can get to make it fair, we only have one entry so far! D: C'mon guys join in spread the word about!
We could really use some prize donations to amp it up! Even just a small sketch, points, or a feature!
Right so I haven't held a contest in quite some time! the last one had no entries and the one before went on for almost a year :I
I will not have that.
So...what's the theme?!
Twisted Fairytales! I've always been a -huge- fan of the thought because it's rather interesting to switch things up!
How do we maybe do this?

Line art, tracing and referencingI have been getting a few people asking to make Line-art out of my work or you know a trace of some artist piece so everyone can have a recolor of it.Line art, tracing and referencing1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Some ask, some just go ahead and do it, I'm NOT OK with you tracing someones work line for line and posting as your own for others to recolor, its a little insulting to the artist even more so if it was a commission.
Using someones else art to make bases or adoptables, is wrong and ruins the artist's original vision. There are 100's of free bases out there and cheap ones, you shouldn't be tracing work without permission for adoptable and bases.
Its ok to trace someones art for learning purposes, but it should never be posted! its even ok to highly reference peoples work for learning purposes, but don't post it! or at lest ask the artist for permission first before doing so.
I made a chart below to show the differences, hope that clears up some confusion.

Letter to PKNote: This started as a comment to the most recent PMD-E journal, but it ended up summing up pretty much all my current feelings for the group so I figured I would post is as a journal too. For everyone who are watching me have kept me going for so long as I have.Letter to PK1 year ago in Personal More Like This
PK. You say that you must have been a little bit nuts with creating the story for this group. It was really quite similar for me. I often felt like I was a bit nuts too with this group. I was part of it for two years, and during that time it often felt like the only thing I thought about. Not just my characters, not just other people's lovable characters, but most of all, YOUR characters and the story that you were telling. I was completely enchanted by how such a complex and gripping story could come out of something as relatively simple as Pokemon. I couldn't wait to see more of Devonshire's mysterious past, I wanted to see PK and Shroomshworth get back together, I desperately wanted someone to comfort Sandy.
____ draw for the person above you!edit; Seriously, mind the order, refresh to be sure, and edit your posts to ensure you will be drawing the right person (who ever is visually below your comment aka before you on the list), we will be checking and if you draw for the wrong person we will not accept it into the group and you will still be drawing for the proper person. We've very strict about this to ensure the game runs smoothly and no one is left out.____ draw for the person above you!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Please be careful and refresh after posting to keep things orderly and avoid complications.
So this has always been a fun game when people do it right, why not bring it to Borealis Region! The game is as simple as the title: draw for the person above you! It's a tagging sort of game, someone starts the chain, then you post that you will draw them, then another person posts that they'll draw your character, and so on. A fun way to meet people or do art trades if you're shy, since who doesn't like art of their characters? And if you complete enough trades there are

Points are probably one of the worst and best things that ever happened on dA.
For those people who are too young to get a paypal (or have strict parents that don't let you get one UEHEHEHE I FEEL YOU) it's a pretty good way to buy commissions, adoptables, and other interactive stuff from other artists. Sometimes it can help you manage your "money" more, and it gives you some kind of "wow did i really earn this much from adoptables/commissions i feel really proud" kind of feeling too.
Oh right, the bad part? People underprice all their art just so they can meet the standards that people who don't buy points with money have. They're most likely going to run into people complaining about it, especially if they price their art at about minimum wage or over.
tip; don't say any
