Free commission raffle (done)Thanks for participating everyone, lets see who wonFree commission raffle (done)6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
And the lucky number is:
Just a small note, I'll do this again with my original style when I'm done with my regular commissions
Raffle? Is that the correct word? Anyway, those of you that follow my polls know that I wanted to do something special for my 300k pageviews. And after... I think it was for 150k, when I was giving 3 months of premium, there were like 3 or 4 winners ( and I didn't have enough points ) I will do this with raffle instead (because there will be only one winner, a lot more people will have a chance to win, plus theres this thing with DA now where your pageviews gets counted when someone visits your gallery as well...) .
Sooo, to get a chance to win free commission (this style ONLY: ) all you have to do is fav this journal. You'll have time until I hit 300k on my front page, after that I'll use random.org to pick a winner
GOOD LUCK EVER

Protect Your WorkFor many artists, art theft is a frustrating reality. No matter how we watermark, logo, or constrain the resolution of our work, there are instances where artwork will be reposted, ripped, or used for commercial gain without credit or compensation. For some, this can be almost flattering, to know that there are those that like your work enough to steal it. But, the fact still remains, that your work has been used without permission, and for no gain of your own.Protect Your Work6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I have been a photographer for four years now, and throughout that time I am always learning. Part of that education is around copyright, and how to protect my work. The collage above is a brief representation of some of the ways my photography has been stolen. Some were edited without permission, event advertisements, included in a calendar, manipulated to advertise jewelry, sold on canvas, for promoting a cosmetic brand, or even for music videos.

Tips For Commission ArtistsHello! I thought of making this small guide, based from my personal experience, to give tips to artists, mostly beginners, to be more successful at selling commissions, since seeing from my previous journal many had difficulty with it. So here are some tips to help boosting your sales.Tips For Commission Artists5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Have your commission info somewhere visible
Possibly, people won't even know you are taking commissions or if they are open if you don't put your commission info somewhere they can see. You can do this in a journal, that I mostly recommend, since it will be showing into your watcher's inboxes and most of your watchers probably rarely visit your profile page. You could still also use the commission widget, or donation poll to write your info. You can also link to your commission info in your signature or the artist's comment of new drawings you upload.
Keep it simple
Don't add too many unnecessary rules or in

'The Ghost' Contest [Extended to July]'The Ghost' Contest [Extended to July]10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Official Contest Information______
Contest Theme: Seisui Naito
This contest is dedicated to the first OC that I ever created, Seisui Naito. The Captain of my 11th Division alternate-universe of Bleach, he was one of the things that brought me to this website so many years ago. Without him, I would never have started my project. I owe him so much. He brought me here, helped me kick of a universe of writing that would see my skills improve over years, and introduced me to friends from around the world. I figure it's time to pay him back.

Pugbun vs Tailcat contest - 20000points prize poolPugbun vs Tailcat contest - 20000points prize pool2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The loathsome creature devoid of honor that goes by the name of Tailcat has crossed the line! This vile creature listens to lame music, doesn't do the dishes, and what's worst of all, doesn't put crayons back on their place. This and many other breaches of good manners escalated to the point at which I was forced to declare war! Stand by my side my brothers and sisters! For music! For crayons! For the dishes!
The peace between Pugbunistan and Tailcatia lasted for many years but it's over now! Pick a side and help your army defeat the enemy once and for all!
If your bravery and artistic input will be enough to harm our opponent you'll be handsomely rewarded for your deeds!
If you are caught collaborating with the enemy though, you'll be thrown into the poisonous hamster pit!
Your task is to take part in the war between Pugbunistan and Tailcatia. To do so you have to create a piece of artwork that dep

really amazing and an honour to see my character drawn by so many people and in so many different styles.
First Place ---> :iconxadako:
This entry really stood out for us, it was clear from looking at it that the artist really considered Ophia's story when creating their entry. We loved the contrast between the
warmness of the colours and Ophia's sadness and body language. The background is really what caught my eye's and we loved how the windows gave a caged bird feel to the atmosphere.

I'd just like to mention publicly, that I, as well as artists in general, are not art vending machines.
You don't type suggestions in, and then have a slot where artwork comes out for free .
Important to Note: I am not addressing any individual in particular. If you think this is about *you* specifically ( whoever you are)- don't. This about the private notes I get, with alarming volume, where people feel they can simply request artwork from me for free. I get a *lot* of these. Which prompted me to post something about it. I usually just ignore them, or, if I feel particularly polite that day, I send them a note back saying I don't do requests.
But they never stop o_O. And it's not that I mind suggestions in comments under artwork, such as: "Oh, I hope one day you will paint _________." or, "

So this journal has surpassed 10,000 comments (wow! I honestly wasn't expecting that). What that means is that the older comments over 10,000 are hidden from pubic view. Don't worry I still have all the comments that were replied directly to this post stored so you wont lose your entry and have been updating my personal backup regularly to ensure that everything is correct at the end of the giveaway.
However, if you reply to an old comment now and not directly to this journal it's likely that the comment will be lost.
So do remember to reply directly to this journal to ensure that I can read your comment if it includes nominations.
And remember there's only 5 more days to get your nominations in
