Winners of the Halloween Murder Mystery Contest!What happened?Winners of the Halloween Murder Mystery Contest!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We are pleased to announce the winners of the Halloween Murder Mystery Contest that was run through Halloween-HQ! First, let us tell you exactly what happened.
The killer was the Queen of Hearts. Ruthless and cold, she set out to kill Prince Charming for repeatedly spurning her unwanted shows of affection. She used a thin knife and struck when the lights went out during the castle ball. Quickly realizing what she had done and that she had gotten the wrong victim, she fled across Fairyland, through the dark forest, and back to her own castle.
Well, we originally had 3 prizes: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place based on scores from the characters you visited. (You didn't know you were being scored, did you?) But, when we ended up with 825 participants, we figured we needed to up the prizes a bit, too. Moonbeam13 over in Community Relations is a goddess, and she made the prizes even BIGGER!

While you are waiting, we have a new challenge for you. This challenge is NOT required AT ALL. We would like to give you the opportunity to create art, written or visual, from the items you collected along your pathway.
Your task is to use the items you collected to recreate the murder scene. It can be serious, or it can be a spoof. It's up to you.
You can create a photomanipulation or drawing. You can paint it. You can write fan fiction, poetry, or prose about what happened. If you are creating written art, you only need to include the words to describe the items or incorporate them into a story.
1. You must have been a contestant in the murder mystery part of the contest to participate in t

25 Life Lessons from Mental IllnessWhy am I talking about this?25 Life Lessons from Mental Illness1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have drifted away from talking about my own illness in my attempts to help others cope with theirs. But, I believe that we can learn more when we let ourselves be a bit vulnerable, so I wanted to share more of my journey with you, my teachers.
I live with bipolar disorder, a mood disorder in which the person suffers from extreme ups (manias) and downs (depressions).
This list features my 25 lessons, but a lot of them are universal truths that many people who suffer from mental illness-- and many people who do not-- also experience. I hope you will also share with me and that we can make this list grow.
25 things I've learned from living with Bipolar Disorder
1. Everyone has something going on with them, all of the time. Just because they don't need medication to cope with it doesn't make their problems any less important than mine are. They are just different.
2. Having a bad day does

Fashion 101: Working with ModelsWelcome to the first edition of Fashion 101, a series of articles revolving around the art, business, and nuances of fashion photography brought to you by Fashion-Show. While some topics may be relevant only to the fashion industry, many of these articles can apply to multiple genres and art mediums, such as today's topic. As is customary with most of my articles, there will be a giveaway and discussion at the end!Fashion 101: Working with Models11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is a Model?
Simply put, a model is a person employed for the purpose of posing for an artist. This can be for a painter, sculptor, animator, photographer, etc. For the sake of this article, we will be looking at models for photography. We will also be further defining a model as someone who has agreed to pose or act for your photography project, versus a brief subject such as a person on the street.
Why Work With a Model?
A model brings a lot to the table for a photographer, particularly when it comes to b
Japan Trip!Sup Gaang!Japan Trip!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well I just got back from japan! It was amazing, Japan was on my bucket list and it was a dream come true to visit. I was there with :iconcheeks-74: :iconryanbnjmn:. While there I got little sleep because I was helping out Cheeks color a Superman comic for Dc Comics (which is announced to hit stands digitally Nov 11 and Nov 18)
The flight took foreeever.
Difference Number 1: People don't chain up there bikes. They just leave them in the streets and no one steals them.
Also, what do you think of my new bike...
Difference Number 2: A lot of people don't even close there doors, because people rarely steal!
I saw a huge temple in the distance from the hotel.
So we walked like 3 miles to get to it. It was an adventure mostly because we couldn't ask for directions because no one understood us. Annnd we didn't know the temple name. This was a huge bell it the top of set of Totoro-like stairs onto a mountain. It was so beautiful.
We got to ride the worlds fastest train to Mount Fu

Yeah, well, blame it on the fact that my kids forced me to watch a marathon of Star Wars episodes.
1) PATIENCE YOU MUST HAVE, my young Padawan
"Street photography requires patience. More often than not I come home with nothing, but it’s the times that I do come home with a photo that will be with me forever, that makes it so worthwhile. (...) Street photography is about searching, finding and reacting…" – Jesse Marlow
"Buy a good pair of comfortable shoes, have a camera around your neck at all times, keep your elbows in, be patient, optimistic and don’t forget to smile." – Matt Stuart
“I only know how to approach a place by walking. For what does a street photographer do but walk and watch and wait and talk, and then watch and wait some more, trying to remain confident that the une
Being Kind to YourselfImage from gradlifethrugifs on tumblr.comBeing Kind to Yourself1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When Lyricanna suggested I write a mental health article on being kind to yourself, I naturally loved the idea and set aside some time to do it. But, I gotta confess . . . this is much harder than I had anticipated! What does "being kind to yourself" really mean?
So, I'll describe some things that I do for myself, and maybe it'll strike a chord with some of you. I want to hear what you do, though!
Sometimes we hear, "be kind to yourself!" and we think, "Wow, but I really screwed something up. I shouldn't let myself off the hook so easily for screwing things up!"
I feel this way often, pretty much every time I make a mistake, in fact! But we have to be more responsible about our mistakes. They are simply mistakes, and, even when they are huge, life will go on. There is a great amount of power to simply saying, "I made a mistake, and I apologize. What can I

Well, in simple, i'm having a contest.
Im looking for drawings of the adopts I have at the moment as I really don't want them to go to waste!
Anyway, my tablet broke so I couldn't make a reference sheet for any of them, but now that you are here then I can get start ^^
I kind of went a bit crazy buying adoptables and i've ended up with more than I thought i would get.
The contest will end on Sunday, the 25th of May.
What you have to do:
Draw any of my many characters I've adopted in any style you like, they will be listed at the bottom of this journal.
You may draw as many as you like in one entry, but be aware that I will also be rating you on links, so if you just add all the characters on my list to your drawing then you might get a lower rating.
You can make as many entries as you like, but only one may place in the rankings, so i'm basically ranking
PE: Story Planning Week!Greetings everyone and welcome to another fun-packed week at projecteducate! This week has been teamed back up with CRLiterature and will be focussing on story planning!PE: Story Planning Week!2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
What do we mean by “story planning”?
Planning a story sounds like an easy task- even at primary school level you are taught that a story must have a beginning, a middle and an end. However there are plenty of important elements that build a story; a lot of prep work that can actually improve the quality of your novel writing in the long run. This can cover almost anything- from world building, character development, creating past history and plot mapping etc. There is a huge range of elements that can turn your idea into a strong well-structured novel.
Are you going to tell me how to write a novel?
Not exactly. We can’t tell you how to approach your novel and how to write it from chapter 1 through to the end. We’re not giv

I figured I would do another one, just to share some amazing work that I love. So here it goes:

IT'S CONTEST-TIME!Hey all!IT'S CONTEST-TIME!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's that time again - time for a little raffle!
The prize is relatively small this time; basically a line-art portrait of the character chosen by the winner... I might slap some basecolor onto it, or polish it a bit, but I really can't promise that as the time I have available for art has become really really seriously limited.
Also I will not give a set time when I'll be finished with it. It might take months, it might take weeks, or it might take hours. It depends so if you're the winner, please be patient and no rushing, k? I will finish it, but at my own pace.
[Edit] People, please note that the prize-art is lineart only, and will only show the neck, head, hair, ears, face, and possible horns/hat/head-gear or -accessories!
SO. On to the rules. There are two.
1. Fave this journal. Once I'm picking the winner I will use a random number-generator to create a number, then find the participant from the faves list with

I am writing to you just after a rather painful surgery so please forgive me if my words get a little tangled up - I'm pretty drowsy but this is incredibly important to share with everyone.
I have recently been placed on HelpHopeLive.com as a transplant recipient for funraising! This means that should anyone ever wish to, they can donate to my transplant fund directly and know it will safetly be put aside until used specifically on transplant related things.
It means so much to me that people have repeatedly asked to help out, and now I have a solid legitimate way to do so, and it's even tax deductable! So please, head on over to:
HELP HOPE LIVE
And take a peek at my page, maybe make a small donation!
Thanks for everyone's support, I am now a step closer to getting a transplant, and through this fund I will be able to financially afford it.
