CONTEST!CONTEST!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love my watchers, but it is becoming harder to thank each individual person for helping me out. So, I've decided to hold a contest, as a way of saying thanks. It's not much, but I figure it's a small way of giving back to the people who have supported me and helped me get to where I am today.
The theme is very simple. Create a piece of artwork involving any of my birds. It can be one of them, two of them, all of them, one of them and one of yours together, anything. It can also be any medium. Drawing, photo-manipulation, poetry, crafts, anything! If you create something that absolutely blows me away or that I can't help but love, I may be tempted to buy it. If you're not sure whether or not your idea qualifies, you can note me.
Here are some reference pictures of my birds, and a bit of info that may be helpful about each. The more inventive you are with this, t

Too Good to be TrueToo good to be trueToo Good to be True3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A poem by Cassidy
My heart pounds inside my chest
And I try so hard to make it stop
I don't know if it's for the best
Or if I'm just way off guard
But I can't stop
I refuse to believe
That what you said
Was truly for me
I want to ask
But I'm too afraid
I've been through so much
I'd be so ashamed
So I breathe in
And try to stop
The pound of my heart
Though it takes a lot
Now I feel so mad
And also so sad
I just accepted you
Why'd you do this again?
Giving me false hope
When it's much too good
For it to be true
Me and you

Alright, due to a copyright infringement, which wasn't intentioned, I, Lydea, the founder, will change this contest as this is backup idea I had and if this sounds like a rush-job, it is the only idea I have and i hope it will work.
This is the only idea I have on backup:
Guardians V Pure Ones: Rivalry
A picture of a Guardian and a Pure One (preferably an OC for one or both sides) who are enemies. If need be, they can be fighting or just plainly giving each other death stares. Creativity and originality is the key. Also, please include a 150-200 word summery of some sort of whom they are and any information you can give about why they are enemies or anything relevant to this.
Members of the group only, if you want to join in, just join the group!
Descriptions are only between 150-200 words, no exceptions. It can be a short narrative if you are creative enough.

PE: The Basics of Giving CritiqueA lot of people seem to think that giving a critique requires you to have an art degree and a lifetime of experience. This is merely an excuse barrier to stop you from trusting yourself in the art of delivering a fine critique. Today's Project Educate guide is an aid to help you consider the basics of critique, and in particular critique on dA.PE: The Basics of Giving Critique4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This article has been written as a guideline overview only and one persons advice. There are hundreds of existing "how to" guides for critique already existing on dA, so if this one doesn't suit you, take a browse and see what else you can find!
The key rules to critique
1. Keep in mind you are writing a CRITIQUE not a CRITICISM. Be wary of your word choices and make sure you keep in mind you are helping the artist for improvement. Be Constructive, not Destructive.
2. Consider you audience- who is the artist reading this critique? How may they react to your words? Be wary of patronising the person you are c
