PICK ONE. You are allowed to use more than one prompt if you wish, but you do not have to incorporate any more than just one.
I have only 95 points, so this isn't exactly riddled with high prizes. ^^' Actually, if someone could direct me to a contest where I could gain some more points, that'd be awesome!
First place: 50 points, 1 llama badge, 10 favs from me, 2 well-thought-out comments
Second place: 30 points, 1 llama badge, 10 favs from me, 1 well-thought-out comment

Making an Orig. Species - FAQ and GuideOkay, so I have gotten numerous notes and comments asking me for critiques and suggestions on their up-n-coming original species'.Making an Orig. Species - FAQ and Guide6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now, a lot of you guys out there are probably saying,
"Ugh what's she trying to say her dogs are just fat with swirl tailz!11"
Well, that may be, but if they were really as plain as a fat, swirly tailed anthro, they probably wouldn't sell as well nor be renowned for the traits that set them apart from the rest, which I'll delve into later.
So, here are some tips to creating something fun, successful (if you put in the work), and original!
For starters, pick an animal or creature to base your species off of.
Pick an animal you don't see used too often, OR pick something you KNOW you can give original traits.
What I mean by the above statement, is that if you pick a common animal, like a dog or cat, and basing them off of drinks or biomes (desert, forest, beaches), ec

well, my precious baby miu has been sitting in my sta.sh for a long time and i never use him anymore. he's near and dear to me and i'm very attached to him (i nEARLY CRIED WHILE DEBATING SELLING HIM IM SUCH A WIMP--)
i want him to go to a better home, but i spent a lot on him so i'd like to get my money's worth back. the lovely person who made miu, Yuudopts, has granted me permission to resell him for a higher price because of all his extra art. (p.s. go watch yuu, she makes really good things!!)
here is my boy's ref sheet
i am reselling him for 4600 (price was originally 4500, but im nervous about how much i spent on all the commissions so i added an extra hundred??)
i ask that once you buy him, please please take care of him. feed him good things and tuck him into bed at night--//slapped :iconsrapplz:
feel free to advertise this journal, i'd appreciate it!
Copycat ahoyI've known about this dude for a while now but I'll post a journal about him just to warn people who haven't found out.Copycat ahoy9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I know for a fact that I have alot of :iconloserdoge: fans/friends following me.
EDIT: He moved accounts to :iconRateeth:, just in case he tries something again, be aware.
He's got a history of blatantly copying the character designs of people he's inspired by, he's never apologised or admitted to it, and on top of that he cheats people out of art trades by never doing his half of em.
He's the kind of atheist that goes around telling theists that god/gods aren't real, and he's also pretty racist and ableist based on conversations he's had in puplic spaces with people(one where he called someone who didnt speak english an "alien" and said god is fake, and called someone bipolar because of their two-faced behavior, which is ableist to actual bipolar people) so he's pmuch an all-around asshole.
The artists he's copied, or at least just the ones I can identify, are Necrop

So I've been thinking about writing this for awhile, and recently I noticed a lot of people are commenting in ways that can make the artist feel uncomfortable.
This journal is about commenting etiquette.
If you comment like this I'm not mad. Please don't feel like im targeting anyone or anything- it's just something I've noticed a ton of people do.
to start out, I'd like to show you some of the types of comments I see A LOT
the self-pity comment
"This is really pretty. I'll never be able to draw like this I'm awful at drawing"
this is the most awkward way to get attention- the artist feels pressured to give you attention and compliment you. This can be super hard on the artist.
INSTEAD, make it positive!
"This is really pretty.

Points are probably one of the worst and best things that ever happened on dA.
For those people who are too young to get a paypal (or have strict parents that don't let you get one UEHEHEHE I FEEL YOU) it's a pretty good way to buy commissions, adoptables, and other interactive stuff from other artists. Sometimes it can help you manage your "money" more, and it gives you some kind of "wow did i really earn this much from adoptables/commissions i feel really proud" kind of feeling too.
Oh right, the bad part? People underprice all their art just so they can meet the standards that people who don't buy points with money have. They're most likely going to run into people complaining about it, especially if they price their art at about minimum wage or over.
tip; don't say any

I think I'm going to sell Preston, here is all his art he comes with!
You will get ownership to ALL OF THIS STUFF, offer me what you think he is worth, sort of like an auction.
Now, I'm not totally sure yet if I am going to keep him or not, I just wanted
to see if anyone was interested in buying him! If I don't think the amount of money is worth it, then I will just
keep him because he really is a cutie, I just don't draw him much (◕︵◕)
