Using HTML on deviantART
Hello! Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking. :) deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place? :dummy

the winners will receive 1 full color (up to 2 characters) artwork from me + a feature for 1 month.

and one winner for the very special artwork (it has to be special) 1 full color (2 character) artwork from me + a feature for 1 month

the 3 first from each category will be featured for 2 weeks.

the winner of the writing (category 3) will have his comic strip drawn by me with full credit to the writer. and maybe partnership in the webcomic.

by the end of the year, if I see so many entries, I will consider giving more prizes (for example, second and third places, in each category will receive artworks) or adding more prizes (more artworks to each winner / subscriptions...)

if you like to donate some prizes to the winners (artworks, subs...), feel free to contact me via note.

SPECIAL OFFER:

I suppose pirates aren't in vogue right now. I may look into it once my other December projects are done.
