Design me a character - OVERThank you to everyone who have entered and plan to enter! I'm very happy and surprised about the amount of people entering the contest!Design me a character - OVER2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Since the amount of entries is much higher than what I expected, I decided to add a few more smaller prices to mention other good designs, even if I won't be keeping the characters. There will be 5 other winners of 100 each!
I'm very picky when it comes to designs, and I know it won't be easy to choose, there are already many good designs. And the contest is not over yet, I'm still expecting to see other great entries!
End of Edit
What I wish is to have one (or more) animal character(s) I will like enough to use/draw/etc. But I can't seem to be able to create an animal OC I like enough by myself. I have plenty of human OC that I never post but whatever but no recent animal OCs I really like. So this is why I'm holding this contest

Regarding me leaving or notThis is a journal continuing the debate I started on this image:Regarding me leaving or not2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I do think it's harsh to leave. Most of you suggested that I'd take a long break, but I think my break have lasted long enough. I want to be on deviantART for me and my own winning only. I'm not here to please anyone, or to be a public person.
I joined deviantART to find people with common interests as me, to enjoy artwork and keep track of my friends, roleplay and occasionally upload some art. I would perhaps never have proceeded to continue drawing and improving if I had never found deviantART, and I've found some of my greatest friends thanks to this site. So leaving is too harsh.
All I want to do is go back to how it used to be back in those days. I didn't have many watchers, and I rarely got any comments. But when I did- they were helpful, constructive and pushed me forward to improve.
I have decided what I am going to do
I'm not going to draw to please anyone but myself. I upload only

SCROLL DOWN TO SEE END DATE
So I decided to hold a second design contest!
I need moar characters
Which is really sad seeing as I already have so many.
Basically it's pretty much just like my previous design contest.
You design the most awesome critter you can come up with, and I judge at the end of the contest whose I like the most, and I keep him >:3
And I always want to purchase 2nd and 3rd place designs as well for points or $AUS.
From what I can tell, it's pretty standard for the contest holder to keep ALL winners designs, but I know you guys really like the things you design for contests and want to keep them, so that's why I ask to purchase instead ^^
Remember, there's nothing to lose seeing as you can sell your designs or keep them!
Scroll down to see what I will be looking for in the designs :3
And the prizes!
Third place winner:

:|I'm just really tired of all the kids on here when it comes to auctions and selling/buying.:|2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But what was I expecting from here anyway.
I mean... You don't just go around bidding very high on things as a JOKE.
And then be all like "omg it was a joke I was not expecting to win I can't pay I only have 2 points".
It screws up the whole bidding, making it inaccurate for the other bidders. And it's also TERRIBLY annoying for the seller, having to let things go for much lower bids after.
And two other things while I'm here:
Don't tell people their prices are too expensive.
Don't tell people to not buy things because it's not worth it.
Man, I'm tired of this.
And now don't tell me to sell things on FA instead, I'm trying. But I'm still new on there and it's very hard to sell things, it's just not worth it for me at the moment.

I am open to MLPFIM-style requests - they are free though I have no problem if you want to talk about any type of compensation (art trade, points, etc.) as well. (I will generalize prioritize those with compensation higher than others)
Example of past OC requests:
I can also do backgrounds and other more complex works like groups of three or more, or character reference sheets, but I prefer to only do these as commissions than requests due to time involved:

Tigerstar stepped over the body of Firestar, he sneered “Just what I exepect from a kittypet.” Sandstorm’s fur bristled and she took a step forward. Graystripe laid his tail on her back “This is his destiny.” Sandstorm looked at Graystripe and sighed “I suppose so.” Firestar stared helplessly into the eyes of Sandstorm as Tigerstar loomed over him. Sandstorm could feel Graystripe tense beside her and looked over and saw that he was worried for Firestar just as much as she was. “Do you want to say anything to your clan-mates before they see you die?” Tigerstar growled. Firestar snarled and slowly rose to his paws, his fur was matted wi

How to leave a comment.I can't even believe I have to write a tutorial for you, really?How to leave a comment.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This does really not include everyone, but some people really need to learn this. And I'm sure I am not the only one who thinks this way.
1. Leaving a comment saying a 1 word adjective, like: cute, nice, good, etc etc.
does not make the artist happy or proud of their work, at least I don't.
What are you even supposed to reply to that? (I never reply to that anyway.)
It's honestly just annoying to me.
At least tell me WHAT is cute. WHAT looks nice and WHAT you think is good.
Also, using proper grammar is also not bad. I understand if english is not your native language, heck, I'm swedish, and I do typos and grammar fails and all that, I won't judge you or anything, but I find it quite annoying when people write like this:
u drw so gd plz teech my hw to woof.
And I'm sitting there like: KILL IT BEFORE IT LAYS EGGS

HelpSo I accepted to give drawing classes to 6-12 years olds and... I'm not certain what to teach them? I thought I would be assisting but turns out I will be giving the classes all by myself. I've never really been around kids, everyone told me it will be fine and I will have no trouble, but I can't help being anxious anyway. I have no idea how to talk to kids ( kinda scared to be either to serious or childish?) and what would be fun for them to draw and useful to learn at the same time between 6-12? Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! ;;Help6 months ago in Personal More Like This

My Deviantart storySince so many are doing it I thought I'd give it a shot xD my deviantart story;My Deviantart story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Hm it probably started early 2009, I was sitting in the car and thought "man drawing might be fun" so I looked at some wolf tutorials since I liked them xD and got very hooked indeed. I had a dA profile before since I was a bit into photography (and still is).
This is I think my first drawing: I remember I was so happy the back leg looked okay xD hah
Not long later I began exploring digital art, at this early point I tried to redo a tutorial drawing that I saw, and thus my first digital picture was made which somehow came out very well xD man I still remember the good feeling, the craving to draw when I did this picture.
I had a few idols when I started, :icontracyjb: :icontanidareal: and :iconculpeo-fox: were the biggest, the first was for cats, the second for wolves and the third for foxes, and so that was the

Design me a new dog character contest ($40 prize)Hey all! I have very few characters and I'm looking for more, so I thought I would run a little contest to see if I could rustle up a few creative designs from people! I'm not looking for anything super specific but I do have a couple of general guidelines.Design me a new dog character contest ($40 prize)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Must be a new design, on original lines.
-The ref must contain a full body shot and a headshot at minimum; if design is non-symmetrical, you need to showcase both sides.
-There will be one first prize of $40.
-If I like more than one design, I may award a second and/or third prize OR I might just buy the character outright from the designer.
-Designs that don't win are fully resellable.
-I reserve the right to end this contest with no winner if I don't particularly fancy any of the designs offered.
-If you need an extension, feel free to ask; I'll most likely say yes!

I can't teach you how to draw...I'm tired of getting this note.. I can't teach you how to draw, honestly no one can magically make you a good artist.I can't teach you how to draw...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The most I can do it, is red-line anatomy and give you critiques, On what I personally think is right. You might have a different view since art is what you make of it, we are all open to our own interpretation but no one is 100% right.
If you really want to become a good artist, you need passion to do so, a drive to become better, study hard and hone your skills, if you don't have that, then you can never become better.
No fancy tablet, program, or expensive equipment can make you a better artist, it can help it look a little nicer yes, but the skills to make it, is all on your trail and error from experience.
IF you really want to learn how to draw, get inspired forget about fail, just enjoy it have fun with your art, Art shouldn't be work to you, it should be pure entertainment.
if your not enjoying it, maybe art isn't your t
How to earn points:faq279:How to earn points2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Yeah. My articles are based off of FAQs But I've had a lot of people ask me this so I'm gonna try my best to answer it. I won't guarantee that you'll be a multi-millionaire and able to swim in a pool of points but I can help you earn some.
For starters, I have to tell you what points are! You can't earn them if you don't know what they are.
To me, points are the currency of dA but they are worthless unless they were earned using the commissions widget, which I will talk about later in this article. But having a lot of it can be good and bad in a way.
Let me start you off with the bad
People will ask you for it! (Not that giving is a bad thing but once you get a page full of comments asking "points plz" you'll wish you've never had any of those wretched things. )
Now for the good
Giving points to people can make then happy!
