Big kiriban contest - win 1 500 points! CLOSEDBig kiriban contest - win 1 500 points! CLOSED3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Due to the fact that I keep getting notes and comments how this and that person cheated, I have to close this contest.
I'm sorry guys.
I've always been trying to be kind and fair and I organized many kiribans already but I hate it when people don't play fair and that's why I really have to cancel this.
But, stay tuned. I decided to give a 3 month premium membership plus points giveaway!
Noone will be able to cheat that way, and luck will decide who the special winner is.
P.S. Points I was going to give you in kiriban contest will be transferred to this new contest.
Check it out here and fav the journal to participate:
Hello, my lovely watchers and kind visitors!

This topic is about rates and wages that an artist should start to consider when taking on a new job. This is my advice, so take this as advice.
So let’s begin. As an artist you should know right away that you are valuable. You can recreate people’s imagination and ideas into reality. You are the one who brings people together to be able to all see the vision for the final product. This is valuable. Keep this in mind when you take new jobs. Think about how many hours you plan on slaving over iteration after iteration. Because even though you may have a voice, if you agree to whatever the arrangement are, you must live up to their standards. So make sure you are paid well.
Imagine a client asks you to do 50 hours of work for only $500 dollars. That’s $10 an hour. That is not enough. You can go get a job that could pay you as much if not more, without being an artist. I’ve seen people’s salaries as low as 30k a year. This is not acc

Nuances of an Annual Ritual
Which brings us to each year’s communal celebration of the passing of our lifetimes:
New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

I don't have the will to sit and ramble right now, partly due to my attacking kitten, mostly due to how troublesome it will be.
It is Christmas in a few days, or since its 3AM on Christmas Eve I suppose I could say it is tomorrow. I haven't been on since May, so forgive me for being so far behind.
I will post some pictures of different things I liked that have transpired over the past, uh, half a year.
I would also like to update that I think I might get back into drawing again. If I do, I'll be sure to attempt to post these musings on here For that is what this is for ja?
Until another time.

August 7th, 2011 marks deviantART's 11th birthdAy, but in true devious style, we're taking a whole week to celebrate! Our original plans for Deviants Appreciation Day were so huge that there was no possible way to express our love for the community in a mere 24 hours. Instead, we've created Deviants Appreciation Week, and what better time to host a week's worth of community-oriented events than in the days leading up to our birthdAy?
Each day this week, we have something special organized for you to participate in! Check out the schedule of events below to come party with us!

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

As a way to kick off April's coloring contest, we are once again hosting the 1/50 for 150 Raffle! All you have to do is +Fav this journal, which puts you in a random drawing to win an easy 150 dA points! Pretty easy, huh? So easy and effortless, you'll probably wake up in a few days having completely forgotten, and wondering just who this color-me-club fellow is that's throwing random dA points at you.
There will be a winner added for each extra 50 +Fav's this journal receives. So you have, at minimum, a one in fifty shot at winning! However, the winner cap will be at 500 +Fav's, so get yourself in quickly to be in the first 500 before the cap is reached!
Of course, this whole raffle thing is just a big ol' ruse to stir up attention to an even bigger event. Yep, already mentioned it earlier, but colorists unite(!) we're also kicking off our next coloring contest!
