All the updates and newer info will be found there.
In a few days I will launch a contest; a sequel to my Reference contest (= TRADITIONAL CONTEST! )
Currently I'm looking for prizes for this contest. Every prize is welcome:
points to my donation pool (the points will be shared between the winners)
points given directly to the winners
drawings or whatever artifacts that are suitable as prizes
I would also gladly welcome any spare points you might have for renewing my premium (core) membership, which will expire in a few days.
And advertizing this contest would also be lovely .
There will be three winners + a voters' choice, so overall 4 winners.
About the contest:
Robin Williams - Light out of DarkI originally wrote and posted this elsewhere, but I just need to post it here too and expand on it a bit. This is the only place where I'd publicly go this deep.Robin Williams - Light out of Dark1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Robin Williams made light for the whole world out of his own personal darkness. He is irreplaceable. People like him are a true gift to life and often paying dearly for it, sometimes the ultimate price. That fact about him was not a secret.
It's deeply profound and sad when someone who caused so much joy for so many people for so long is suddenly just gone, let alone the ultimate circumstances thereof.
It is often wondered 'How can someone this funny be so sad?', or the other way around. You know how people like to refer to sad clowns without thinking any further than just this attempt at making an ironic statement.
Often enough the sad truth is that someone is as great at making people laugh as he or she is because he or she are deeply sad or depressed or otherwise very troubled on the inside. Maybe bringing joy to others is

This is an honorSo, I have received another DD feature! It is my second one and I'm just so astounded that it was possible I could get another. I woke up this morning, and checked dA for any new notifications or deviations to read (finally cleared the deviations inbox besides a few. FTW), and lo and behold, there were comments on The Colossus that said, "Congratulations on the DD!" Needless to say, I was really blown away. At first, I was shocked and was sure I was still dreaming, but no I wasn't. I am so grateful for this feature. Especially because I've gotten one before AND because I made the 24 front page yesterday. I thank all who supports me, but also littlemoonboots, luckyshorelines, and DorianHarper for making my second feature possible. You are all such lovely, kind-hearted people who are just too wonderful. Stay that way, stay golden, and people will easily fall in love with you (in a friend way) like I have.This is an honor2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Horse Soldier, Horse SoldierI'm a hussar, I'm a Hun, I'm a wretched EnglishmanHorse Soldier, Horse Soldier1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Routing Bonaparte at Waterloo
I'm a dragoon on a dun, I'm a Cossack on the run
I'm a horse soldier, timeless, through and through
I'm a horse soldier, eternal, through and through
I's with Custer and the 7th in 76 or 77
Scalped at Little Big Horn by the Sioux
And the tears and devistation of a once proud warrior nation
This I know cause I was riding with them too
I drank mare's blood on the run when I rode with the Great Khan
On the frozen Mongol steppe while at his height
I's a White Guard, I's a Red Guard, I's the Tsar's own palace horse guard
When Romanov was murdered in the night

Niki sat under the cherry tree in her cottage garden on a large teak rocking chair. She was absorbed into another world by the tatty pages of poetry she rifled through. They were well worn and finger-smudged, but she had refused to let her husband replace them because they were, as she put it, well loved.

dA turns 13: Teenage Icons There is only a few days left before the contest deadline- please ensure your entry is in before then! Just to clarify "Icon" refers to the mascot, not to the art form!dA turns 13: Teenage Icons2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As you will know by now, today marks deviantART's 13th birthday! Throughout Community Relations, we are celebrating in style with a wonderful array of events, contest and fun all to get you in the celebratory mood- and even better we've thrown in some prizes along the way!
By turning 13, deviantART can now legally use deviantART. It also means that deviantART is officially a teenager, and us oldies know what that comes with, and the young knowing what that is right now. Being a teenager is free and fresh, but can also be angsty and confusing.
The aim of this contest is to use any art form to depict devinatARTs famous Fella and Llama characters as teenagers. Think about what they could be like at the age of 13, what
Original Species: AstarisAstaris are species based off my obsession with space people and Animals. Also made reality by a friend who is also obsess with stars. They are still a work on progress species ;3;Original Species: Astaris2 years ago in Personal More Like This
**** PLEASE NOTE***** They are a CLOSED species ;w; Ask me for permission. Plus they are really meant for me and a few close friends. I'm willing to make them as adopts.
Their apearence is a mix of an animal and a human. They are space animal people that live in space and controls their own universe the way they wish for it too be. There are millions of galaxies so there are millions of Astaris. Each Galaxy represent their own personallity. An Astaris can live for hundreds of years without aging and even breath in space without any support. Each Astaris is born from its creator (that means you :3) and given a galaxy to rule over. Basically, they are the god of the galaxy they rule. They can add stars, planets, and give life to creatures that live in

Update (December 17): Alright guys, I've decided to make some changes to the deadlines for sending in gifts since a lot of people have had complications with the dates o__o I'm allowing you to send them in ALL THE WAY from the 21st to the 28th; so that gives you some time after X-mas in case you're traveling. Still, it's preferrable you get it done on Christmas or close to it >u>; Procedure is still the same. The earliest you're allowed to post it is the 21st. And then you send me a link, I post it on a journal (I might post it up later because I'm traveling on the 21st) and you also send one to your recipient If you have any questions, PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK WITH ME!
Hello everyone, and welcome to the Secret Santa event of 2012! Much like every year, I ended up caving and deciding to host this event, for the simple fact that many and more of the SS events on deviantART are becoming invite-only. And what with Christmas just around the corn
