Contest! Win 2000 points or $20 and art (UPDATE)January 1 was the date of the contest to end, but have to change the date because I have no time for finishing prices in the nearest time D8 SO much came suddenly in the way like too much school work :C And because of that, I have some commissions and other owed art I must get done with after that. So the deadline is changed to 29 May! Do that sound good or if it should be some bit into June? For me it doesn't matter. After this, I will only be able to extend it once more if needed and then no more. Extended twice already but because of personal problems tough. o3o So if you still wanna join, you still have time!

CEA Blog: Mature ContentHey guys, today I want to talk about Mature Content on deviantART and hopefully clear up some misconceptions that exist around it.

How the mature content filter works
All members over the age of 18 can choose to enable or disable the mature content filter to suit their needs. All members with a registered date of birth under the age of 18 have the mature content filter locked on and can not disable it. All logged out visitors have the mature content filter enabled and can not disable it.
The mature content filter is split in to two types, strict and warning. The strict filter is completely voluntary and prevents any deviant with the mature content filter on from accessing the work. The general or warning filter is the standard mature content tag and will remove the image from immediate view when browsing and place an warning page on the devi

Hello there again my darling snowflakes!
Yesterday we announced the winners of February's Repeating Contest! Today we put a start to March's Contest!! Are you excited?? Keep reading to see what we will be doing this month!
A little F.A.Q before we get started :iconjumpingla-plz:
How does this work?
Every month I'll give you a theme and you'll have to create a Manga/Anime styled entry according to it
Is Fan Art or Fan Characters allowed?
I'm afraid not Only Original Characters and universes are allowed. Your Naruto based OC, for example, isn't elligible to enter or win.
Can we submit pre-existing works that fit the theme?
Nope. All entries must be made specifically for this contest, old artworks won't be accepted.
Alright! Now that we have the basics down, let's get into serious bussiness!

SixWordStories Contest - Five 3-Month PMs to win!UPDATE: The contest ends in a couple of days so get your entries in if you want to participate! Please also make sure your entry is in our folder here!SixWordStories Contest - Five 3-Month PMs to win!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
It has been a long time since we have had a contest, but we have some
Won't Receive Points? And Convert Points to MoneyJust some quick tips~Won't Receive Points? And Convert Points to Money2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I often see people saying the commission widget won't work
or saying they didn't receive and lost the points when taking commissions using it.
This is most likely NOT a bug!
When using the commission widget, the points you earn will be showing
in your earning page instead https://www.deviantart.com/account/earnings/
Hint: This is also where you are able to convert
your points to money if you have Paypal ;>
I have seen people having this problem countless of times,
so I thought I could write a quick journal and hopefully it can
help the few people who had this little problem

It's 2013! The apocalypse? It didn't even put a dent in our world. That's not going to stop me from calling this planet "post-apocalyptic" now. It just makes it more fun. It's also the Year of the Snake. May these words bring you and your art good fortune in the days that follow.
Three years ago today, deviantART opened up groups to the public. #The-Art-of-Smoking was founded on that very day, and today's our anniversary. It's time to celebrate! And, since the world just keeps on ticking, it's time to take the world of art to the next level. Your art! Let's talk promotions...

10 Long Rock SongsI tend to like longer songs, especially of epic proportion as they let me get into groove that I just can’t get from a three minute production of some music nowadays. Maintaining a song for a length over ten minutes is a challenge that requires dedication, creativity, and a rediscovery within the song itself so that it is unique every time it is listened to.The few exceptional songs that exist in rock music are harder to come across and have an atmosphere all their own. In no particular order, here are ten of some of the best examples of rock songs exceeding ten minutes (excluding live versions for fairness).10 Long Rock Songs1 year ago in Personal More Like This

ESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMICESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMICESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMIC2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hi I’m Andrea Dotta: a Pro comic artist and animator and one year ago I had the insane idea of making a powerful webcomic to show my works to more people as possible. Now I’m in a positive development towards my goal. If you want to do a webcomic, always do your best as their are millions of webcomics on the internet.
In this article, I would like to share the things that I’ve learned this year so I hope you will get something from me.
IDEA: There are no bad ideas, there are only ideas that are not developed. To develop your idea, you need to be authentic - think of your real life experiences to give credibility to your story. If you need a sad story, think of a sad story in your life. If you want a happy story, think and say what i
August TasksGreetings to you, citizens of Tao Village.August Tasks2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may recognize me. I am Gabriel, archbishop of the Order of the Sun. I work alongside my friend and deacon, Ezekiel, to bring spiritual refuge to your village. While we attempt to remain out of your affairs unless brought to us, we have taken notice of the hardships you’ve endured, as well as the current exodus of many Merchants from the village. There are some sort of politics involved in this, I’m sure, but we will not judge based on that, for my Creator has given me my place for other purposes.
For those willing to travel, I have received word of several tasks I’m authorized to give out to the teams registered in Tao. Though I find it remiss to offer such when we in the Order teach against material desires, there will most cer
An awesome gesture from the communityI didn't want to talk about this here at all because of the holiday season and all the stuff going on, but I had a rough time recently and had been considering disbanding the group due to thinking I wasn't able to put enough in it to make it fun for most everyone. It made me really disheartened and I lost sleep over it; PMD-e is a gigantic part of my life, and running it was super fun until I got the idea that it wasn't fun for others anymore. Well, I ended up going through my Japan trip trying not to think about it, and somewhat planning out some more stuff I had in mind. Then I got back from my convention this weekend to find.. well, to find something really great from a good number of you guys.An awesome gesture from the community2 years ago in Personal More Like This

It feels like walking has become another chore
I don't think I can go on walking anymore
So please forgive me for these words, I know they're cliched to you
But life is tiring, my feet are getting sore
I wish that I could have a bit of time
To heal the ache that's growing stronger all the time
But I know time stops for nobody, let alone me
And so I go, inevitably
Whenever things are going rather happily
It turns out life is just playing a trick on me
It's slightly shameful to admit the truth, I end up in tears
And so begins the same old melancholy
I miss when life was just simplicity
And misery wasn't always chasing after me
It's pretty obvious now, I should've left my regret
But I held onto it so foolishly
Maybe I overreacted a bit, hasn't destroyed me yet, has it
But everything I desire is always just too far to get
Honestly, it's just me, brainlessly, so silly

ROUND ONE OF SIXFOLD LEAGUE NOW COMMENCES
This round will be treated like a qualifier. We want you to show us what you can do, but don't go absolutely all out right at the start! A certain number of contestants (depending on how many participate in this round) will move on to Round Two.
In this round, your contestants will be having a ONE ON ONE BATTLE WITH YOUR FACTION'S ASSISTANT. You must show your character winning for your character to advance. Though the definition of "winning" is up to you! As long as it's clear (a draw would also be considered a victory). No switching Pokemon mid battle. You must pick one Pokemon and stick to it throughout the whole battle*.
*Note on the turn-based style fighting: it is like the games, but not exactly. Basically it just means taking turns, but you are more than welcome to mix it up as well. We won't penalize you for it.

CORUS NPC EVENT 2
Alright, my non-competitive underlings! Since you're not competing in the tournament, I'm gonna hafta ask little favours of you from time to time. Don't you worry much, they're nothing life-threatening. Not right NOW, anyway. Who knows what kinda missions I might send the more capable Corusites on in the future? Anyways, here's the few things I need you guys to do.
Number one! Did you guys know we got a daycare and nursery? For the baby Pokémon. And occasionally baby humans. Not many students get knocked up, I should say, but whatever. We got it if we need it. Well, it's kinda fallen into disarray. It looks more like a prison than a nursery! So we've set aside a budget for you guys to go spruce it up, make it actually look inviting to the little ones! Check out Severstal market for furniture, paint and any other kind of crap you deem fit to go in there. Have fun!
Number two! The deserts of Corus hide tons of ancient ruins. And inside ancien

Merchants Mission 6Hi, everyone.Merchants Mission 63 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don’t really know how to begin this. The current state of the village probably says a lot, I have no doubt. I don’t know what to really tell any of you. I just... don’t.
Well, okay... I do know one thing. We’re going to get through this, all right? We’re gonna make some changes around here. We’re gonna work hard and hopefully we should... we should be able to make it better than it was before. The village, I mean. I know a lot of your houses got smashed, but a decent amount of you still have an intact home. Those without a place to stay should know that Merlot is offering rooms at her castle.
Actually I feel that mentioning this is kind of redundant because you’re probably reading this while staying at a room in the castle. Whatever...
Anyway, I have recently, uh, come into the timely possession of som

I... I’m not really sure what his problem is, but this jungle’s always been pretty harsh. But enough about that. We need to find where all of the villagers scattered off to. I’m pretty certain we’re actually in the middle of an island, with all this water around us no matter where we go...
Island?! But we're not in the middle of an ocean... are we?
No, it’s not like that. I think we’re next to a giant pond. Rather, in the middle of it. I know Prismatic Jungle has one of those, so I think that’s where we might be. It’s colorful enough for that, anyway. My grandfather did more traveling than I ever have... he would know for sure. Hmm, well, we

Hau! (Hello!) We are happy that you have shown an interest in our region, The Saturos Canyon.
First off, we must warn you that The Saturos Canyon is… not for the faint of heart. Even with all the accommodations the TerranAlto Plateau (the capital of the region) is very isolated because of the geography and the immense size of the region. The climate in Saturos Canyon is hot, dry and it borders Epicent City, Cita Erbonde and Lochesh.
There are many ancient ruins in the canyon making it a haven for archeologists and researchers, and the famous Mars Lighthouse is to the south, near the border of Lochesh.
The climate in Saturos makes for the perfect training environment, you’ll be stronger than you ever though

Many of our accessories have been unilaterally deemed... unfit. So it seems they’ve been thrown out. Without my consent. So for the most part, the accessories available up to now have been discontinued.

In the mean time, I hope you’ll enjoy these items Chloe helped me whip up overnight! Not too shabby for such short notice, wouldn’t you say? Nothing celebrates the coming of spring like our family’s traditional techniques.
Oh, don’t worry about them being too flimsy. Our leaves are made to last. But you’d better get to them before Gnasher does! I have a feeling these will only be around for a limited time!

Normally, each month before those mean foxes attack us, I make a few Moonlight Bands out of whatever material I have on hand and some moondust. However! I cannot do this for all of you right now, since there are, uh, a lot of you now. Which is good! Fending off the attack requires a lot of effort, and that’s... well, sometimes there are... casualties. They’re not anyone’s fault but, you know. It just happens that way sometimes...

Good afternoon soon-to-be students. I am Lady Lyra Nightingale, the headmistress of this boarding school. I am also the leader of the region Lochesh. You may address me as Lady Nightingale.
Here at Nightingale Manor, we offer many classes that allow you to sharpen your skills as a Pokemon trainer, from "How to Use Your Surroundings to Your Advantage" or "Offensives Becoming Defenses". Oh, but don't think this will be easy. It's not. At all. We do not tolerate failure or weakness. And that's just what the classes offered beat out of you. It may be an extremely strict environment, but it will do wonders for your battle intelligence.
There are a couple of rules that are in place at the school. One: curfew is at eleven. Two: do not wander into the Forest of Fae unattended. And three: prove to the other factions that this faction is superior in every form - especiall

Contest for the Fakemon-Group!
Idea for the contest - Create a fakemon from one of the egg designs below
Egg 1 -
Egg 2 -
Egg 3 -
You only need to do one egg, but you can do the other ones if you would like.
Only do one fakemon per egg please.
If you do more two or three eggs, keep your entries separate. You have to enter them in each egg entry separately. This will increase your chances of winning; however, you can only win once. (Ex. If you win for egg 1 and have an entry in egg 2, that entry will no longer be able to win.)
You can name them if you want to, but it is not required that you do. C: You can also choose what type you want them to be.
