This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get Core Membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
It's that time again! I've already hit the 700 Watchers milestone (actually hit it a couple of weeks ago)! The race to 700 between DeviantArt and Pixiv was pretty decisive, and not as intense as the race to 600. There's not much to say this time. So let's get right to it.
This time around we're doing something a little different. The theme for this Raffle is... Retro Gals! Neon colors, pastels, City Pop, Armor that looks like it came from a 1980s/90s Falcom game, the works!
Fanart: The girl must be from an videogame, anime, cartoon, comic, or manga from the 1990s and back. Nothing from the 2000s to today.
Original Characters: The girl must be wearing something (either clothing or lingerie) that was made from the 1990s and back (or designed with those aesthetics in mind).
1. You must have a DeviantArt Account, and as of this post must have been here for at least 6 months or more. 2. You must be okay with your request being offered up as a Patreon reward for others (more on this in a bit) 3. You must be okay with your request going into any group of my choosing, as well as any groups that it gets invited into.
How to enter
Clearly state your request in the comments below or send me a note. You'll be entered into a pool of entrants. The winner will be picked at random. Only one request per person. You're free to change your request, but it must be done before the deadline.
What is Allowed
Fanart, YOUR OC, SFW, NSFW, XXX (<-- will be posted off DeviantArt)
What isn't Allowed
Loli, Guro, Scat, Bestiality, Furry, Inflation, Incest, Mecha, and all content related to Steven Universe, Five Nights at Freddy’s, Undertale, MLP: EqG, and Sonic the Hedgehog. And for this raffle, no modern stuff.
What Kind of Request Can I Win?
This is the kind of pic that will be up for grabs. One fully shaded character, no variants. Can have a blank or simple background.
Here's some examples of what I mean.
Here's some artwork I did for the previous raffle winners.
As Patreon Reward For Others
You must be okay with having your request offered as a Patreon reward for other people. You yourself will be given the rewards (except the PSD file). If you're not too keen on your request, especially for OCs, being put up as a reward for others, then this might not be for you. If your request is of an OC, and it wins the raffle, the name of your OC, your DA name, and URL will be included in the image (like the two images above).
Deadline To Enter
August 17th, 2018, at 11:59PM US EDT. Many may enter, only ONE will win!
The winner will be randomly chosen by Wheel Decide. This will be shown via video, as seen below. And yes, you'll see the names entered and then spun, just like in the previous Raffle Results.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I enter again if I competed in the last raffle? Yes you can.
Can I put down the same request as last time? Or course. I even suggest copy/pasting your request from last time if you want to enter with that again.
(Just remember, for this raffle itmust be retro themed)
Can I enter again if I won the raffle last time? No. To keep things fair for others to win, you won't be able to enter again for another two Raffles since your last win.
Do I have to state my request right away?
Yes. This is to prevent awkward situations where someone wins, and they request something from me that I'm not quite comfortable with.
Alrighty then everyone, get requesting! Many will enter, only ONE will win!

[Concept Sketch] Here's a third sketch I did overnight. It's Sonia Belmont from the often forgotten Gameboy game Castlevania Legends. She was also supposed to appear in a Castlevania game on the Dreamcast, but it got scrapped. Gonna keep this one a secret from most sites until later on.
[Concept Sketch] Got a pair of Concept sketches for ya! First, here's Xiuying in her summer outfit. I'll talk more about her qipao swimsuit when I begin her pic.
And here's the other concept. Finally got down to drawing Beat from Jet Set Radio. His outfit is based on the original game, with the rollerblade design based on Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed.
[WIP] I'm finally back to some new artwork, kicking things off with Rhapsody's new look! This pic is actually a throwback to an old pin-up pic by Gil Elvgren. I'll post it in the reply below. Still brought out Body-chan just to be certain I drew things right.
(Twitter Image link since I don't want to put it in sta.sh)
Here's the original pin-up image in question that this pic is based on. The original artist is Gil Elvgren (1918-1980). Whenever I think of summer, I always think back to these old pinup artworks. Always wanted to do something like it. I'll explain more when I finish Rhapsody.
