My DeviantART Story: A Journey of 9 DeviantYearsOk, so it's not exactly nine years yet, but at the end of this year it will be! And that's a long time time, if you stop to think about it, so I'm stopping to think about it to reflect on this nine-year journey through dA, seeing as 9 is such a lovely number.My DeviantART Story: A Journey of 9 DeviantYears4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I joined this site at the tail-end of 2005, back when I was in highschool and I thought winesoaked-roses would make the most awesome username...it didn't, so I'm not that anymore (thank goodness dA added the ability to change one's username, because I think having the username is why I took a speckled 2-year-on-off hiatus a few years ago; why would I think wine-soaked roses are lovely? I guess they kind of sound so, but having tasted wine several years back, I can't imagine roses would be good to eat with that)...
I don't remember exactly how I stumbled upon the site but I think it was purely by accident. It was back in the days whe

In August 21, "Your character in Missing Halloween!" mini-contest was announce.
In September 1, a total of 313 character designs were submitted. Judging has begun.
As the judge, there were 313 submissions, and only 32 to choose from. Trust me, it was haaaarrd! It still pains me that so many great designs didn't get in. (It's just that many) But I still did my best to judge them carefully.
So here goes, the results!!!
THE TOP 5 CANDY GIVERS
As mentioned, there will be 5 characters who will be featured as candy givers! (And their owners to be in the credits as "Additional Character Design")
And here they are!!!

As fore mentioned in part one (or I guess it's technically part a) of my 2013 +watcher journal art features, I have split the (past) year's feature into a few parts. So to start the year off right, I would like to thank everyone who has had a stroke of fortunate insanity and decided to follow my gallery, and would like to continue my 2013 +watcher feature of some amazing art from their amazing galleries! It was an amazing journey through these galleries and I hope many others will love my findings as much as I did.

¿Qué programas son comunmente utilizados para crear Vexels?
La mayoría de las personas que hacen vexels trabajan con Adobe Photoshop y Paint Shop Pro, ambos son muy buenos programas pero un poco caros.
Una alternativa gratis es The Gimp, que puedes BAJAR AQUI.
Sobre trabajar en Photoshop
A) Puedes usar el Pen Tool (herramienta pluma) con shape layers (capas de formas) en Photoshop. Ahora, aunque Photoshop es un programa basado en rasterización (mapa de bits/bitmap), puedes crear un VECTOR debido al hecho de que todas tus formas son shape layers que pueden ser modificadas de tamaño infinitamente. ¿No me crees?

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

Missing Halloween, an animation about two kids trick or treating, was previewed last year on Youtube:
However, the deadline was missed and was decided to remain its production on hold.
But not anymore, of course! Halloween is coming soon after all!
WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?
Are you looking forward to watching Missing Halloween?
Do you design your own characters?
Would you like to help with Missing Halloween's production?
Then this is your chance!!!
You can get your design featured in the animation Missing Halloween!
In the animation, there's a part of the story where it features locals in costume giving candies to the two main kids.
This is where you come in!
I decided that instead of randomly designing these people, I can give my fans the opportunity to have their designs featured in the animation!
And if there are too many designs contributed, I can use the others as kids who Trick or Treat in the background!

Tutorialistist: Oh, how I love making up random words that don't make sense. But! The tutorial will be finished this coming week with pictures of the two finished tutorial knives.
I've been behind...well more behind than normal. It takes real dedication to manage to end up this buried in sharp pointy things. The good thing is I do have a few good knives coming up. I'll probably post them after the knifemaker get together thingy next week. So our tactical month, while it will have 98.21893792% tactical style or utility knives, might have one artsy knife thrown in. If the stupid thing will let me finish it. ;_; It decided to stab me through a few days ago. So my hand has a nice clean whole all the way through it, which has slowed me down a little bit. Then!

I have been wanting to do this for a while now, something that’s a lot of fun where it gives you a chance to use your creativity and art skills to win awesome prizes!
In this contest, you get to design a character based off ANY key or piece of jewelry we have made. It can be based off one in our DA gallery, one in our etsy shop, or one that has already sold from our shop. It does not have to be a key, it can be anything we’ve made.
Anyone can enter, worldwide. Digital and traditional art accepted. It can be a fully painted picture or line art. Other media, such as clay/ sculpting or costume making, are acceptable as well.

For many of us, the first “art gallery” to command our attention (and constant, even daily, monitoring) in our
lives existed within the pages of the local newspaper. It was called “the movie section” and its ever-changing movie
advertisements were like little frames that rarely contained less than pure magic for young imaginations.
The Film Poster has existed since the earliest days of silent movies and the pulse-elevating excitement of the
first sight of an upcoming adventure, action, or sweeping love story that we might have only “heard good things about”
still packs a psychic punch throughout movie lovers today.

OK, so many of you have heard this already, but there's a hacker going around on DA, he's getting into peoples accounts, and even worse, he deactivates them completely. There is a way to avoid this though, if you ever get an email from nobody@Da.com or something like that, asking you to change your passwords, don't do it, it's a trick to get your account hacked, just delete the email as soon as possible.
And now onto worse matters, below is a message (from Microsoft I believe) that is warning people of a massive hacker, and the steps you need to take to stop him from getting you. I would like to thank for getting this info.
IF A PERSON CALLED SIMON ASHTON ( SIMON25@HOTMAIL.CO.UK ) CONTACTS YOU THROUGH EMAIL DON'T OPEN THE MESSAGE. DELETE IT BECAUSE HE IS A HACKER!!
TELL EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST BECAUSE IF SOMEBODY ON YOUR LIST ADDS HIM THEN YOU WILL GET HIM ON YOUR LIST. HE WILL FIGURE OUT YOUR ID COMPUTER ADDRESS, SO COPY AND PA
