Anybody Want to Run 12DoC this year?Hey!
So since unfortunately I am not currently active and am not able to dedicate the time to run this event, it would be awesome if someone could keep this event going this year!
If you decide to run it, I would promote you to founder, and you would be totally in charge of the event (promoting, gathering volunteers, etc.). Run it however you wish, just please keep the Christmas spirit of the event the same.
So, if you are interested, please note me with maybe why you want to run it, and other events you have run/helped run, just so I know the group is going to good hands. I also ask that you have at least some group running experience, because the backroom will probably need some renovating, and I would highly suggest you do organize it that way the volunteers have a clean and flowing space to converse and to eliminate confusion.
Although not required, I would suggest you have a core or senior membership, that way you can have a skin for the group (If you don't kn
WOO, BACK MOSTLY!!!I found out that it was my laptop mouse that was making the laptop run glitchy, so I tried my old mouse in, and it worked!
So now that I have a smooth running computer, I can be back on here for at least the community part, but I just can't really do art until there is a new/fixed desktop because I have no good editing program on this laptop, and there is not enough space to download my project files on to here.
So Sunday, I will be able to start up my "Emoticon of the Week" series again, and the 26th, I'll start up my "Fella Features You!" series. I missed my turn for deviant365 last, but some time in September it will be my turn again to do my contest/project.
So, I noticed a lot of cool stuff has happened over the summer! Like Endorell-Taelos and Astralseed getting deviousness, Waluigi-Prower becoming the new emoticon CV, and the July 2014 Seniority (which included Tahog, rainylake TheGalleryOfEve, and simplys
Computer Problems SuckSo the computer ended up completely dying, and the laptop is being dumb, so I can't be doing my thing on here for at least a few weeks.
I unfortunately can not write up any articles over my phone ,, , but I can over my laptop, it will just take a lot longer.>.> I can't promise being really active as I'd like to be on here until I get a new desktop.
i know I've been saying that if be back full time and everything like twice now, but it's just been one thing after another this summer so far keeping me off here.
I hope to see you guys more soon! Again, the computer gets replaced I will be able to be on here as much as I was able to before.
Love you all! I hope you are having a great summer/winter!
Will be out for a little time longerHey!
So I found out that I have another trip planned out this week, busy summer haha, so I will not be back full for like another week.>.>
In other news though, I will not be making any art for some time because my desktop's hard drive went out, and my laptop mouse is really dumb, so making anything with it would be a real pain. I will be active otherwise tough when I get back.
See you guys!

Week 23, 2014 at #deviant365June
Hello deviants! We are on week 23 over at deviant365!
Last week, we asked you to visit a gallery folder you would not normally visit, share a deviation you found from that gallery, and tell us a bit about your experience. whimandwonder completed the task, and won a 3 month Premium Membership for deviantART!
VoxFour and Cisety also completed the task, and won 200 points!
whimandwonder is a traditional artist that has been on deviantART for over 7 years. She does pencil drawings, watercolors, and even some literature and photography too. She has great art, so I highly recommend you check out her gallery, I'm sure you will find
Emoticon Tournament 2014 PreparationsHey!
So this summer, I am planning on hosting the 2014 Emoticon Tournament!
It will be run much like last year, with maybe a few variations in the rules where needed based on last year.
One of the major rule changes though this year, is that instead of there being initially one week to create your entry, there will be two weeks. Each round could last up to three weeks, if there is popular demand for a one week extension.
I will start choosing judges, and maybe an assistant or two pretty soon, but I will not really start going big on planning until I get back full swing mid June. There will be judging applications as there were last year, so look out for those.
So until then, I will start opening up donations for the event. So if you have some spare points, and want to help give this a head start, you can donate to my other account IceXDragon-Alt!
Thanks everyone! I hope this year it will be very epic and fun!:
Weekly Hunt #124Every Friday, there will be a 'Hunt' for either the Most or the Least of something or other. It's a weekly (hopefully) fun activity, open to all, that will get you scouring deviantART for the best possible piece that fits the 'Hunt'.
The person who suggests the best piece will get four of their art pieces featured on our page and, in return, the piece itself will also be featured on dAseniors' front page!
Please suggest up to 2 pieces to this folder, not on this journal!
(It will be automatically approved, so make sure you submit wisely. )
Last time, we had the most...

Another Awesome Suggestion:
I won't be around much......for the next month or so.
I haven't been spending many afternoons here at home as of late, so I haven't had much dA time as I have school stuffs in the morning. And right after school ends, I'll be helping out with a day camp for 2 weeks, and immanently after attend a week long summer camp in Ohio!
So due to this, especially starting June 3rd, my activity here will be minimal. Never fear though, I should be back normally around the 21st, when I can be on here in the morning!
I will though keep up with my articles, as I can just write schedule those on the weekend and they will post.
Everyone, have an awesome week!
New commission journal OPENOPEN
So a bit time ago, I asked in a poll what people would be interested in and listed price for each option. And it seems like almost all of the options got votes. So what better than to just open everything at once? = v =
Also sorry this might be a bit messy, DO's and DON't's are at the end as well as a form to fill out.
!! I can decline your commission if I feel like I can't do it! !!
!! complex characters may cost extra! (by complex, I mean characters that I see as complex for my skill level) !!
Few quick rules/terms of service
UPDATED: custom villagers! (closed) NOTICE: JAN. 29TH
after the last custom is finished we'll be taking a small break before accepting more forms!
other important updates:
1. we're going to drop the whole neopet paint brush theme and
just allow you to pick whatever themes you'd like your villager to be instead.
you can still base your villager on neopets paint brushes!)
2. we've edited the form as well so many of you who have already submitted
a custom form may want to go in and edit it! (there's a new comment to reply to)
3. the base price has been upped since these take a lot more time than expected!
animal crossing villager customs!

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!
Regular Payments / ABs
Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy
How to link deviants, deviations, or websites!I am using deviant arts own help topic found here http://help.deviantart.com/81/. I will be expanding upon what they have with examples, to make it easier to understand. Just so you know I am using their outline and explanation, if you would like to know which parts were mine and which are theirs just go to the site above
How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?
There are a few formats you can use, either a link of the users name, displaying the members avatar, or by linking with a personal description.
:iconusername: will display the member's or group's avatar as a link to their page. Remember, however, that the limit for posting blocks of avatars is sixty four per post, and this will not work in signatures.
This seems easy enough, here I will use my own name. :iconamarantheans: will give you :iconamarantheans:

. What I want:
Commission ListFirst of all, the best way to commission me is via sending me a note. Just say what you want and keep it short at first, because in the end matters mostly how your character looks (so add the Ref Sheet too) and what kind of drawing you want, details can come later. Since who knows if I will even accept your Commission.
What I am willing to draw: Canines, the rest you better ask but mostly is the reason that I am not good in drawing other stuff, though asking never hurts.
I live in Europe, so it is EURO, so the prices here will stand in € and all happens via Paypal. If you want to pay in USD, you probably have to pay more.
It would be best if you send me the money, works the easiest for me with paypal. I always demand full payment before, I can assure you though that I am a fast worker and will send you wips if you wish it. BTW, make sure to select: no delivery address needed. Update: I prefer invoices now.
I really do
