Hey, y'all! So, it's about time I host another contest. :) I've always had really nice outcomes, so I'm hoping I'll have just as good of a response. Well, I'll get to it.

Prompts (can be used in any media, taken in any interpretation):

:bulletgreen: 100 pounds of shredded paper* 
:bulletgreen: Weeds
:bulletgreen: we can only hurt ourselves
:bulletgreen: poetry is a dirty word 

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!

:bulletblue: First place: 50 points, 1 llama badge, 10 favs from me, 2 well-thought-out comments

:bulletred: Second place: 30 points, 1 llama badge, 10 favs from me, 1 well-thought-out comment

:bulletyellow: Third place: 20 points, 1 llama badge, 10 favs from me 

:bulletpurple: The amazing SilverInkblot has donated some of her beautiful bookmarks as prizes. :) (Smile) Check out her lovely bookmarks and art!

When you finish an entry, just comment on my profile or this journal that you did it. A link to the deviation would be nice, although it's not required. :) You can also note me if that's more comfortable for you.

Contest begins: 3/15/14
Contest ends: 4/15/14

Dirty WordDirty Word
24-03-14
Don't tell me you're a poet;
that you fill pages with lies and metaphors
jutting out from every-which angle.
I don't care for lies
no matter what wrapping they come in.
I don't care for sonnets declaring love;
love is a word heard often
and meaning little.
Don't give me copious words in rhyme
where three words, in plain, will do.
Don't tell me you're a poet;
that you twist emotions and thoughts
like a master spinner at a spindle.
I care not to be told what to feel.
No matter how close our feelings are
they will never match exactly.
I don't care for Haiku depicting nature
when nature can be self-experienced.
Your frothy depiction of snow
is of less importance than what I feel standing in it.
Your thoughts on Autumn worth less
than what it feels like to collapse
into a pile of orange, gold and red.
Don't tell me you're a poet.
I care only for my own experience.


Logically DirtyA carpet
Is not dirty,
Not until mud
Is tracked
Onto the carpet:
Now the dirt of the mud
Has been transferred to the carpet -
By this logic,
A poem can be made dirty
By a single word placed within;
A stretch of
Pavement is clean,
But if a single slab
Is dirtied, then the
Whole of the pavement
has been dirtied -
Just like the pavement,
A single poem can turn
Poetry to a dirt-ridden state;
The meaning of various words,
Are dirty -
This in turn has made the
Words... dirty -
An abstract string of logic
Can form a single point:
Poetry is a dirty word.


i can only hurt myselfbecause it is me who reads
too much into your gestures
and words; it is a lie
when they say that a heart
can be taken or stolen
or held by a lover
my heart only sits quiet
in my chest and thumps
uneasily,
waiting not for you
to come claim it
but for me
to look down at scared
fingers and feel
inadequate, ashamed
uncertain
of things i know are true
and i hate that
you have the power
to make me hurt myself
when i already do such a good
job on my own


Paper Cage of Fear100 pounds of shredded paper
And I was their maker
100 days gone by
Every one was a lie
100 dreams torn
All I can do is mourn
As each page was torn apart
The cage fell from my heart
All that was left of me
From that time, all I can see
Is 100 pounds of shredded paper
And I alone am their maker
Each word inked upon the page
Strengthened a bar on the cage
Each paper added the weight
That sealed shut my fate
I didn't realise what I had done
Until it seemed too late
I could barely see the sun
In this place filled with hate
You came to me with the brightest light
And taught me just how to fight
I could shred all this fear
With your helping hand near
Now I look all around me
And everywhere I see
Is 100 pounds of shredded paper
And I was their maker
But now I can finally be
Just what I wanted, free


Shredded paperI wake up on the floor again
With a hundred pounds of shredded paper
Scattered all around me
Covered in poems no one will hear...
Drawings of circles
Yet we stand in rows
Poetry's abstract, right?
It is, I suppose
Pain is just a process
That we go through to make
A hundred pounds of shredded paper,
Shredded poems, in our wake
Drawings of squares
So linear and clean
Poetry is random words
With some meaning in between
The ceilings always caving in
The rain is always clear
Poetry can make a world
But I don't like being here
Drawings of triangles
Each point as sharp as a knife
Is a hundred pounds of shredded paper,
All I have done with my life?
Just rhymes and lamentations
And we'll make the whole world cry
Just writing stories for ourselves
So others can ask why
Drawings of my heart
Med-school textbook style
THE HEART IS JUST AN ORGAN
Poetry is a liar
I touch
A hundred pounds of shredded paper
Scattered all around me
Covered in shapes and stories and LIES
That someday-
Everyone will see..


Weed KingWalking through the gray and silver garden
With cold trees rising above each cloud
And the uncountable little blades of grass
Or the occasional flower, striking and loud
But for every petal of hope, eternal and strong
There is an invader borne of the same shade
Borne of the same mask, wrought of greed
Sitting on a throne of death with bloodsoaked blade
O parasite king
O lord of the garden gray
O weed almighty
Why so many must you slay?
Walking through the gray and silver garden
With cold trees, withered and gone
And the uncountable little graves
Or the occasional flower, never to see dawn
But for every petal of hope, however small
There is a cell holding a dangling rope
Borne of a different mask, wrought of courage
Sitting on a stone floor with dull blade of hope
O hero king
O lord of the rebels we
O hope almighty
Why are we not yet free?
Walking through the gray and silver garden
With cold trees, afraid for false joy
And the uncountable betrayed
Or the occasional flower they could not


Sting.I tried to pull
the weeds from my heart
today, but the thistles only
cut my hands; I lost myself
in the sting.  Perhaps to bleed
is all we can hope for;
perhaps we may only hurt
ourselves.

EDIT: ok, so were don't to the last hour left to enter, I just wanna make it clear that entries must be submitted here, in comment for for the entry to be counted at all. if it is nt submitted here in comment form then there is no way for me to find or let you know that stuff on it needs to be changed. ALSO if you post your entry before midnight and i tell you that stuff needs to be changed, you can change and update your entry after midnight, this is totally fine and understandable, just don't wait like... several days to update it since I'm gonna start judging this weekend and be announcing winners soon after, please keep this in mind (lets say please make edits and submit updated entered within 24 hours from the time i ask for it to be changed, i thin that is reasonable)

EDIT NOV 7TH: please make sure to get your enteries in by tonight midnight southern CA time!! that is when entries close and judging starts!!

edit2: decided from the poll votes to extend the contest 1 week, making the new deadline november 7th at midnight.

I have decided to do a make your own finkx contest!!!

RULES

-you must draw and upload an image of your finkx entry to DA so I can add it to the contest folder
-Please follow the rules for the species (finkxes that don't follow the rules will not be counted in the contest and will not be allowed to be made official or to win)
-3 entries max, though only 1 of your finkx entries will be able to win.
-common, and uncommon traits are fair game, but finkxes can only have up to 2 rare traits and 1 mutation or super rare trait.
-Please no halloween themed finkxes, I already have a list of halloween finkxes I'm going to be making that have their own special stuff going on, having one that is fall theemed is ok though (or pretty much any other theme out there, finkxes can have any colors and theme so don't limit yourself to just fall because its october lol)
-Please post a link to your entry here on this journal so I can find it easily and don't miss it for the contest. I will ignore any links sent via note or other method.
-feel free to post questions here! especially so that if someone else has the same question they can see the answer in the comments (I'll feature comments with questions and their answers to make them easier to find)
-finkxes that are made official wether by winning or paying the fee at the end of the contest can only be traded or sold for the same amount that the fee to make then official was.
-Absolutely no tracing or copying of anyone else's art or characters, If i catch anyone copying stuff from others they will be blacklisted from the contest and possibly from further myo/custom/auction events if it is really bad.
-please follow my TOS

SOME FINKXES AND THIER LORE
(please no glitched contract finkxes for this contest)

MORE FINKXES FOR EXAMPLES

common, uncommon and rare trait sheet, also body types: (remember, traits can be mixed together!! you don't have to stick to just one traits appearance as long as it doesn't exceed the rare/mutation/super rare trait limit!)
+SPECIAL WING/EAR NOTE: the markings and colors of the inner wings and the inner ears pretty much always match, they also usually have the same edge type as the ears. I also wanted to make a quick note that inner ears usually have some sort of lacy or interesting design on the inside of them (see finkx examples for examples) and they don't have soft fades on the inside of their ears, but segmented gradients are fine.

 Finkx Super Rare Traits and Mutations by Aviator33

depending on how many enteries there are will depend on how many winners there will be, but probably around 1-3 winners per 10 entries~

WINNERS WILL GET THEIR FINKX OFFICIAL FOR FREE and also have the option of adding one more rare/super rare/mutation trait to their finkx! they can also have a little doodle headshot if they like of their new finkx (same style as this)

Any designs that don't win will be able to be made official for a fee, probably around 20$-30$ (will be solidified later) (the fee will only be accepted through PAYPAL)

Okay, so I have gotten numerous notes and comments asking me for critiques and suggestions on their up-n-coming original species'.
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), ect., you have to understand that people have done this a million times, and that if you're going to execute something simple like a water-based canine species, you have to make sure of one important detail

IF PEOPLE SEE THIS DESIGN IN THE OPEN, THEY WILL KNOW WHAT SPECIES IT IS


Let's be honest, no matter how unoriginal you think cinnadogs, waterdogs (alfeddy), sushidogs (witchpaws), and others are, if you see one on the front page or in your inbox, you don't need to know the artist or name of it to know WHAT IT IS AND WHOSE SPECIES IT IS. That's the thing - if people like it, get it out there, make it recognizable from the rest.

So, let's take dessert dogs on for a change. Pretty old, yes? Overused? Probably not the best place to start an orig. species. But let's see first, if you're hell-bent on a dessert themed creature species, it's what you can give them that makes them original.
So, like the step way up there, pick a species you don't see too often, like caterpillars, slugs, even elephants or hawks. Or, even better, make up your own creature - but make sure the creature isn't too bland. If you make a quadruped furry animal with big ears into a species, it can literally look like anything (not a good idea).
Give it a set of unique antlers, a cool nose, extra limbs - unique anatomy is key!
    -Cinnadogs are fat for a reason - many people are uncomfortable drawing overweight and pudgy characters. It is something I don't see too often in designs or species in general. Their anatomy is unique in that they have a defined pear body, neatly shaped legs and paws, and even a set weight and tail length, The tails can't uncurl, and the species itself isn't overrun with giant piles of cream and drippy chocolate, but the palette itself is taken from the wonderfully colorful photos of food. Knowing this, owning and drawing a cinna gets people out of their comfort zone and into drawing new things, exploring their artistic capabilities!

DON'T PICK AN ANIMAL, SLAP A TRAIT ON IT, AND CALL IT A SPECIES
What I mean is, placing wings on the butt of a cat and making is a closed species isn't only ridiculous and uncreative, but it is also something hundreds have done before and will more than likely do again. 
Here are some do's and don'ts to adding on traits to make a species creative.

DON'T ADD+MAKE A CLOSED SPECIES

-Armor
-Food
-Wings
-ceiling fans
-washing machines
-clothes
-lightbulbs
-carpets from India
Catch my drift? Anyone can put a sock on a dog and claim it, but it's not creative and reflects poorly on your abilities.

DO's to adding and possibly making a successful species add-on
DO ADD THINGS LIKE
-Stuff no one really does
------Medicine
-------a. (ex) Dextromethorphan (medicine used to treat cold/flu/coughing)
--------1. Use this medicine to make a character based off of the symptoms of what it is supposed to protect. Let's say you have a unique species based off of the pharmaceutical field (be aware people have made medicine creatures, but let's make these stand out), what do they do? Does each creature protect against the symptoms it is supposed to? Have they been overrun with their respective sicknesses? Did they all used to be created for a purpose but ended up failing as helpful experiments? THINK CREATIVE! HAVE FUN! Put them in the future, make the world post-apocalyptic and these disease-ridden creatures wander around trying to heal the sick but end up being zombies themselves.
DON'T TAKE THIS IDEA. I CAME UP WITH IT FOR EXAMPLE PURPOSES, NOT FOR FREE USE. THAT'S USING A CHEAP WAY OUT AND RUDE. Plus, it's my idea, I plan on using it anyways.

Boom, I just made a species concept in less than 40 seconds. I'm not saying it will come as fast to all of you, but give it a shot!

See where I am going? Think of things no one has done. If you're making a dog species purely for profit (which is fine), DON'T make it closed if it is really cliche, and DON'T attack others for making something similar.

Here's a recap
-What makes a cinnadog recognizable from a dog slathered in mushy sugar and gooey chocolate put up as an adopt?
    -Anatomy
    -Purpose
    -Background
-Don't slap a trait on an animal and call it closed
    -People did it before, and will do it again
    -Dogs with buttwings and hoodies aren't original at all
-DO make your species recognizable, be open for critiques and suggestions
    -Remember: If you see a waterdog out there, you know it's a waterdog by Alfeddy.
-Dogs and cats may be easy to draw, but get out there and explore!
    -See how your species fits some other animal
        -Does a slimy space creature fit a dog more, or how about a six-legged space slug with glowing eyes?



On a side note, please don't ask me to critique your species, I wish I had time to look them over and give you help, but alas I don't.
Be free to take this chance and take this journal into deep consideration - EVERYONE OUT THERE HAS THE CAPABILITIES TO MAKE SOMETHING GREAT! GET OUT THERE AND TRY IT! ♥

reselling an adoptable!! ( still open )

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 16, 2014, 9:29 AM


i really don't want to do this... //cries like a baby

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
Miu Ref by koriora
i am reselling him for 4600:points: (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 ahoy

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 26, 2014, 2:34 PM
I'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.
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 Necrophile/Mynosylexia, squeedgemonster, phloxebutt, nishimikan/ghost
and those are just the RECENT ones

Here's some evidence, originally on tumblr posts
oi58.tinypic.com/1zxp5de.jpg
24.media.tumblr.com/8b0c81f9ad…
furryscumbags.tumblr.com/post/…

Mynosylexia, the main artist he's copying at the moment, has asked him to stop, but he's been making up excuses left and right and just lets others do his arguing for him instead of taking responsibility for what he's done.
He's pretended to be mynos's friend just to get out of hot water, so dont let him use that excuse either, its a complete lie and mynos said so themselves. Its a shitty thing to do, for sure.


So just as a warning, steer clear of LoserDoge/Rateeth. He also has a furaffinity account, www.furaffinity.net/user/demon… (slur in the username, nice). His tumblr is Lozerdoge/alexloserdoge as well.
If you notice any art thats copied from an artist that isn't mentioned on the list earlier, let them know so they can report it or handle it however they choose to.



He doesn't have a single creative bone in his body and he doesn't deserve any support.


do NOT bother trying to defend him, as you can see, theres over 500 comments, i'd think if there was any shred hope for him getting off the hook it would have happened by now, and I really wont reply to half assed "that doesnt look like copying/he didnt do anything wrong/copying isnt real(my favorite one LMAO)", I'll just ignore them(and my followers should too), cause i've been over it 500 times now.

I'd like to ask my followers not to send offensive comments to anyone, but if you see him or anyone copying, tell the artist you believe he copied before doing ANYTHING, and let them handle it in their own way.
