Because my deviantART page is very new I thought I would encourage people to add me to their watchlist. I am giving away 400 points to a random person on my watchlist. So basically all you need to do to enter is add me to your watchlist and write a comment on this journal saying you would like to enter. Sharing this journal, favouriting it, or adding a link to this giveaway to your journal would be appreciated too.
Also, would people prefer more chances to win some points or just one person get 400 points? I could have 4 lots of 100 points, 8 lots of 50 points, or one lot of 400? I will give the points away in the way that is most popular to you guys. I will choose a winner/s at random from the comments on this journal on the 17th of October.
Have a good day everyone
p.s. If anyone ever wants advice or help on their work feel free to leave me a comment with a link to your work a

Len Kagamine x Reader Story.It was a hot day and you had been caught in the middle of the town without a way to get home. sighing to yourself you figured the only way to cool off and get out of the sun was to walk into a store. you thought it lucky that in front of you stood a music store. A rather large music store at that. You wandered in and sighed happily. It was cold inside the store. You started to relax and browse through the store happily. "Well," She say to yourself "This day is starting to turn around" Your eyes light up when you see the new edition of Vocaloid music sitting right in front of you on a rack. "Finally!" you exclaim as you pick it up. You turn it over to look at the price and sigh. "To bad..." You put it back then sat down on a bench not to far from where the CD's where. You had left your wallet at home thinking your mother would pick you up from school today, only to find out she had yet another business meeting. You sighed and looked down at your shoes.Len Kagamine x Reader Story.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Tuesday Tips #2 Scanning your ArtworkWelcome to the second edition of Tuesday Tips where we at :iconrising-artists: try to make your deviant life easierTuesday Tips #2 Scanning your Artwork11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Today we will be discussing how to scan and post edit your artwork.
Many times a camera won't pick up all the minuscule details in your piece, but a scanner will.
However, often times scanners come with one or two major drawbacks
-The scanning process looses a lot of color quality
-Your artwork is too big for your scanner bed.
So, lets talk about these two problems and how we can solve them.
What you need:
Photo Editing software (GIMP, PS, CS+..etc)
If your artwork is bigger than your scanner bed, never fear, solutions are here! While I figured out this trick on my own, some deviants figured it out long before I did and made AWESOME tutorials that cover every point I wanted to share with you all.
If your wondering about images that are larger then the one used in the tutorial, check out how I sca

(This will probably get long and there will be swearing. There also may be triggering words or statements within, so if you are sensitive to those things be aware of this before reading).
Pardon my language but -- what the Hell is wrong with the dA admins?
I mean really?
I get it, I really do. You're busy, you don't really want to do your job, and you've been taught to have the least possible concern for other people as you can as to avoid branding this website with a 'bad reputation'.
This place is supposedly all flowers, rainbows, and happy people frolicking away in eternal bliss sharing art, and being merry.
Meanwhile the truth is this place is the biggest joke on the internet. It's filled and continually filling up with so many sockpuppet troll accounts, cyber bullies, and spammers with such rapidity it puts Myspace or any other social media site to shame.

Redesign a character contest!If there's something we love about fan art is how artists take artistic liberties and portray characters in their own style and different scenarios we wouldn't see otherwise. Some people will say that fan art is unoriginal, but from experience there's a lot of creativity involved when it comes to depicting your favourite characters in a different light, deviating from the way they were designed by their creators.Redesign a character contest!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is why, inspired by the Pokedesign Challenge by *CrazyRatty on Tumblr, your friendly neighborhood Fan Art CVs decided to host a fun little contest for you!
How it works:
Pick a character from any fandom you like.
Come up with at least 3 different re-designs for them and put them in a single image.
Upload to deviantART's Fan Art Gallery

Right now I'm sending to each of you a note with the girl that you have to make a gift!
I want to add some rules and possible questions that maybe you can have:
Once you've received the name of the girl, you have until October 31st to finish the pic (THAT'S THE OFFICIAL DAY THAT ALL THE WORKS MUST BE SUBMITTED DURING THE DAY!)
LIST OF WISHES:
If the gift that you have to make is a Pic/Drawing (traditional or digital style), it must be TOTALLY COLORED (black and white is accepted too if that's your style). Linearts, WIP's, sketches and doodles ARE NOT ALLOWED(Unfinished works not allowed, I mean), unless if your style is kinda sketch. Just think a little, there must be equality for all the members!

Abortion Poem DEBUNKED.So I've noticed that a very famous poem about abortion has recently gone "viral" on Deviantart....And it is the most medically inaccurate piece of "literature" I have ever seen. So, I decided to debunk it using facts I learnt during my two years of Child Development and three years of Biology.Abortion Poem DEBUNKED.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Mommy I am only 8 inches long but I have all my organs.
WRONG. All the organs are present after the 12th week. Over 60% of them happen during the first nine weeks and overall above 88% of abortions happen during the first 12 weeks. And it is not eight inches, try the size of a poppy seed.
I love the sound of your voice.
Every time I hear it I wave my arms and legs.
The sound of your heart beat is my favorite lullaby.
One month old embryos DON'T have ears, arms or legs. They have a tail at that point for crying out loud! It has been scientifically proven that fetuses can not hear until past the 16th week gestation.
Mommy today I learned how to suck my thumb.
