:iconimanimeplz: Hola, queridos amigos (y recién llegados). The contest is also for english deviants.
Quiero proponeros un concurso que puede ser interesante para los dibujantes aficionados y a aquellos que les guste el yuri ^_^ por supuesto, no podría ser de otra forma.
- El concurso consiste en hacer un dibujo mezclando dos temáticas: Halloween y yuri. Para aclarar, con "yuri" no me refiero a hentai, me refiero al comúnmente conocido shoujo-ai.
- Los personajes pueden ser tanto OC's como personajes de obras conocidas.
- La técnica empleada es indiferente, entrarán en concurso los dibujos tradicionales y digitales.
- No está permitida la copia de otros trabajos, es decir, los personajes pueden ser no originales, pero la composición del dibujo sí ha de serlo. No se pueden utilizar bases.
- Se necesita un mínimo de 10 obras para que el concurso sea válido.
- Cada persona puede presentar 2 obras

My deviantART StoryIt has now been over 10 years since I first decided to join deviantART and little did I know then, this decision would end up forging my entire life and career.My deviantART Story9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I wish I remembered exactly how it all started, but I'm going to go with my best guess and say I heard about it from another student when I started college back when I had just turned 18. Up until then I had been using various art forums such as wcreplays.com, animex.com, sijun.com and cgsociety.org so the discovery of a portfolio website was a pretty cool thing.
I started posting on here and got moderate attention, I had been drawing for a long time at that point so my art was in a state where it was at least interesting to look at. If anything it was a fantastic place to get inspiration and look at art from amazingly talented artists.
It wasn't until I decided to color the line-art for the following piece that everything really started.

About 3 years ago now I applied on a whim for a position to join the Square Enix Visual Works team in Japan. I expected not to hear anything back. I applied with a nice letter, a link to my folio and a 'top secret' link to copious amounts of NDA work.
I was blown away to get a personal response about 2 or 3 days later from one of the Art Directors on the team.
It was very blunt and very straight forward. He told me that I had a very unique style and that my artwork was great, He loved the heavy, solid feel and saturated colors but he had reservations about how far I could push it towards realtime cinematic work. The exact words he used to describe it was " Imagine an offline rendered character that we see today, we need to see that, modelled and textured in a stylised, fantastical final fantasy way but for use in realtime applications." He went further on to say "The stylisation is in design choices, not materials, which are to be very

5 Unanswered QuestionsA few times a week I'll get questions in the form of “notes” on dA, emails, and private messages on Twitter, but I'm sorry to say that I don't normally find the time to answer them.

(Most of these questions are paraphrased, or a mix of two different questions.)
1. You charge way too much for commissions (between $1000-$3000 for 11x17). How do you justify that?
I agree it's a lot of money. When I first started pricing commissions so high, it was for 2 reasons: I only had time for a handful a year, and having a commission list stressed me out. I priced them high so less people would ask. Commissions are nice, but I see it as a short term money game, whereas working on creator-owned properties is more lucrative over time when you think about prints, t shirts, licensing, etc.
The work I put into a 1k commission is the same I'd put into a Batman cover. And I sell B

I first met drefeyja about seven years ago on this site, so here is probably the best place to say this. We never had the chance to see each other in real life, but she was my friend as much as any of the ones i met in person.
I remember complaining that i couldn't afford a tablet, then i managed to get one sooner than i thought; she told me afterwards that she had already talked to a few other dA users about raising money to buy me one for Christmas. That's just one small example, but everyone who knew her can tell she was one of those rare people who are truly compassionate and sincere in both actions and words, not merely an idealist, but one who isn't afraid to roll up their sleeves and get involved. Her volunteering work is yet another proof of that.
As it often happens, we slowly drifted away over the years, but started to talk again a few months before she went away. I wish i could have made better use of the little time left, but i didn't really b

I'm happy since there are only a few copies left of my second artbook LUX.
We're printing a second edition with a new cover (which I yet have to paint, that's why the book has no cover), and we're launching another FANART CONTEST for you guys.
Just as with the first edition, I'll be picking some of your paintings to be included at the end of the artbook in this edition.
You can paint any of my images in your own style. For instance, if you choose a character, you can change their pose and paint it with any technique and style but they should be recognizable.
Deadline is 16th February.
You can send your entries here: firstname.lastname@example.org
In case you're interested, you can still buy the first edition of the book here:

Why people are so annoyed by FEMINISM latelyOR: WHY WANNABE FEMNINISTS THAT TRUELY ARE ALL ABOUT THEMSELVES ARE HARMFUL TO SOCIETY.Why people are so annoyed by FEMINISM lately7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'VE GOT ENOUGH of attention whores who call themselves "feminists" and discuss OVER MY HEAD what should be "good“ for me ( as a woman) or what I should be "enraged“ of / about without even taking into concern what I WANT, WHAT I HAVE TO SAY or WHAT REALLY BOTHERS ME!
(Disclaimer: since some did not seem to understand what/ whom I was referring to. I obviously said "wannabe feminists" to describe a small but loud group of people that only use feminism to promote themselves. I was looking for a word to not become needlessly insultive, so I chose "wannabe" to point out how they are fake. Those fakes are to differ from people who really work on helping society when it comes to feminism and/ or gender equality, which from my point of view affects every gender, not just women.)
Today I witnessed another one of these

Some stuff about Homestuck.I've been having some ideas on the subject of Homestuck lately, and I guess I just want to get them down somewhere where I can (probably) go back and laugh at how wrong I was later . For those of you who haven't finished Act 5, this goes beyond spoilers to the point where it just won't make any sense... just so you know . Also, I know I've shoved this in the face of a couple of people before, so if you happen to be one of those people... yeah, this is THAT idea .Some stuff about Homestuck.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Thusday, 24th May:
I arrived at the Airport in the afternoon and the organization team picked me up from there . The hotel room was directly next to the con. It was still some time till Elffi's plane would arrive, so Christian (organization team member) and I took a walk in a nearby park. I got so distracted by wild DOGS, BIRDS and CATS everywhere *-*! I could pet a cute wild kitty <3 awww~~
The we went to the airport to pick up Elffi. We were standing there pretty long and I got bored and annoyed XD;....so the first thing I did after he came out of the baggage claim room, was kicking his leg and asking why the hell that took so long ;O;~~~
We haven't seen each other since WCS, so that really heartwarming kick was the nicest greeting I could get in mind *LOL*.

5 Career Killers“Whatever happened to that guy? The guy that drew that thing?5 Career Killers6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Comic careers are like any other career in entertainment: if you don't stay relevant and adapt to a trend, you'll eventually peak and then bottom out. But there are more things that can help end a career. Here's a list of 5 that I've been thinking about lately.
1. SOCIAL MEDIA TAKE-DOWN
The creator does something that somehow goes viral, turning his (or her) readers against him. Bad behavior at a convention, sexual harassment online, or a semi-racist Tweet made worse by bumbling attempts to correct it. Or maybe the creator gets blamed for something innocent: innocent comments taken out of context, or involvement in a controversial project that he had no say over. Whatever the case, “social media take-downs” can harm careers, leaving a permanent black mark on your career.
I imagine this one is the most common: no matter how hard you work—and no matter how much a

"Blessed be the Lord who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation." ~Psalm 68:19
Psalm 68 is an interesting passage. It was intended to be used in worship by Israel as a song of victory and deliverance. It recounts the many difficulties they endured and speaks of them being afflicted, oppressed, helpless, sinful, and exposed to hurt and pain; yet this Psalm recalls that God provided for His people in the tough wilderness wanderings and in the days of bountiful blessing in the Promised Land of Canaan. In both the good times and the bad, God blessed them and cared for them. In this passage, His people recognize that and thank Him for it.
Often in the bad times our eyesight gets foggy and we fail to recognize God’s hand of blessing. We focus on the negatives and let them pull us down. At times we may not even see any positives in our situation, but my friend, God always gives blessings even though they
