my plans were that i won't actually announce the winners, because i think it'd be fun for it to be a surprise when i upload the drawings
but i just realized that i never actually asked what you guys would want drawn so that might not work out :iconimsotiredplz:
but we'll see! i'll scout the winners' galleries and see if they have a favorite OC or something
but if all else fails i will announce the winners tomorrow
i was gonna do a kiriban thing, but since it's so close to 2013, i thought i would do this instead :>
i will be giving away THREE free requests!
unlike my normal request journals, these will be "high quality" requests
like maybe even a background oOHM MAAANNN
something similar to
maybe even a little cleaner or more painterly depending on

Character Designs For Sale! Auction ends on 04/18One of my very close friends is moving accounts, and decided to sell some of her old characters! I offered to auction them off for her ^-^ <3Character Designs For Sale! Auction ends on 04/182 years ago in Personal More Like This
She designed every character except for Bicardi. So all design credit goes to her except for him. He was a gift I made for her, so being one of her no longer wanted designs he's in the auction as well ^^
When bidding, please refer to the design you want by using its given "auction" name listed above it. c:
further information on each design will be given under its auction information~
My watermark is over each design just so that the designs won't be stolen-
I also understand that the images of each design are very small, but when you win a design I'll note you the full un-watermarked image in sat.sh ^-^
If a design does not receive a substantial bid when the auction ends, my friend and I will keep it ^^
Adoptables, Basics for Adoptables ArtistsTwo Steps to StartAdoptables, Basics for Adoptables Artists3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Create a new account
This is not necessary, per se, but if you have in mind to do more than just one or two sheets of adoptables, it might be a good idea to start a new account. This way you won't spam your watchers' inbox, if they're not interested in adoptables, and you can organize your gallery in a better way.
Be a member of Adoptables Groups
dA is a big community and the sheer amount of new deviations every day makes it hard for your art to be seen. Considering that you just made a new account for your adoptables, you have basically no watchers whatsoever so how can you get the exposure you need to sell your characters? The answer is join Adoptables Groups. By doing this you can do two things, the first is submit your adoptables to their gallery and advertise them, the second is observing the trends, what people like to draw and buy more.

I'm comfortable in drawing characters of any gender (I am better with females though) with a cute, sexy, or badass design. For characters with animal features, I can only accept the Kemonomimi type. If the character carries any type of gun, I may ask for at least 2 references of the weapon(s) if available. I'm open to wor
PSA -- Wearing HijabI wanted to take a minute to discuss a very serious issue that escalated to a new level for my recently. For the past few months I've been dressing much more conservatively than I normally do and have been wearing a head scarf. I started doing it for several reasons but the main one was to gain a better understanding of the discrimination many Muslim and Orthodox Jewish women face by covering their hair and the severe spike in islamaphobia in this country. Getting odd looks I think is normal when you look slightly out of the norm and largely I don't have an issue with that. But I did notice something that no one should ever be this afraid of..I was afraid to cross streets. I was even afraid people would take their car onto the side walk to hit me. I know that sounds irrational but you do start to notice the way people in cars regard you and just how easy it would be for one to hit you and take off. Now, I've been hit by a car twice so I'm a little more weary than most but even moreso nPSA -- Wearing Hijab1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Alright everybody. We've received a ton of suggestions (Kudos to Malintra-Shadowmoon and PoetBoi; their suggestions will be used in future Contests. November's Contest will be hosted by the latter! One of Malintra's ideas will be used in 2014!
October will be Songtober, at least for this year (thanks to hypermagical). Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a piece of any type of literature on certain songs. You may use more than one song.
These songs were chosen for their lyrical content and quality, not necessarily genre, popularity, artist, age, etc. We're trying to make this as inspirational for you as possible. That said, here are the songs:
The One That Got Away - The Civil Wars (2012)
This is an alternative folk ballad that features beautiful vocals and haunting melodies.

Found Poetry Project - Titles as Art
One of my favorite things about the creative process is coming up with a good title. The title can make or break a piece; it can give context not provided in the piece itself, set a tone or mood, or just give that little extra something you can't put a name on.
You know I'm right. How many times have you stumbled into an ordinary piece with a beautifully creative title? And it's not something

Random Acts of KindnessAre you awesome? Let us love on you!Random Acts of Kindness1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is this?
The Random Acts of Kindness (RAOK) project in the photomanipulation community is designed to help recognize photomanipulators who go out of their way to help other people.
The little things we do for others really do make a difference. Whether it's through featuring someone new, critiquing someone's work (in a positive way), providing mentorship, showing support through kind words and gestures, or anything else that brightens another deviant's day, we can all chip in for an even MORE awesome photomanipulation community.
We want to acknowledge deviants who go that extra mile.
How do I get involved?
Know someone who rocks? You can nominate them for RAOK recognition by sending a note to CRPhotomanipulation. We will choose one or two RAOK nominee(s) per month to recognize, although all nominees will be acknowledged. The winners will receive a small prize (very small-- we don't

Poe's Death List:icontechgnotic:Poe's Death List3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Foreword by techgnotic
Fri Oct 21, 2011, 8:23 PM
As Halloween approaches, what better way to celebrate the season when the spectral
boundaries of the Kingdom of the Spirits of the Dead touch briefly with the mystical
edges of the Domain of We the Living than to invoke the battered and hellishly bedeviled
soul of Edgar Allan Poe to guide us in communication between (his) ghostly and (our)
ghastly planes of existence.
Poe invented the “detective” story and was an early father of “sci-fi”, and he was also an
extraordinary poet, but he is best known for his Gothic tales of mystery and abject horror –
nearly all of them anchored in the apprehension of an impending cruel and unnatural death.

TutorialHi, everyone! It's been a while.Tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I've joined dA, many people have asked me about doing a color tutorial. (i don't understand, there's nothing appealing in my coloring style ww). The truth is I've never made a tutorial before because I can't express myself in english, because as you may know, I speak Spanish, not English. (my English suck pretty much ok orzlll)
Anyways, since many people asked for it, I ended up making a tutorial. Actually I finished it some weeks ago. You can find my tutorial in my tumblr:

(filling space with links;; )
Again, I want to warn you that since I don't speak English and I can't express myself correctly, you will probably find many mistakes;;
If you have any question, feel free to ask me anything you want!
