Hello hello Deviants!

I'm super excited to announce a new fun challenge!

Introducing the ElfMyself Challenge!


What is it?

Elf Myself!

Essentially, you draw either YOURSELF or a character that REPRESENTS yourself as an ELF!


The way I decided to tackle the challenge was by grabbing a photo of myself as reference and taking inspiration from the photo to create my elf-sona. I tried to think of it as an #OutfitOftheDay but with a twist.


BUT, if you don't want to use a photo of yourself and you want to go with an OC that represents yourself instead, that also works!


I am SO excited to see what you guys come up with for this challenge!!

How to Enter:

  • Make a NEW drawing of yourself or a character that represents you as an Elf!

  • Post your Entry to DeviantART with the tag: "ElfMyself"

  • Mention me: @ChrissaBug in your description so that I get a notification that you have entered and I can come see!!

Deadline: June 25th (20:00CET/11:00PST)

We will look over and feature all the entries during my livestream on the 25th starting at 8pm CET! Make sure to follow my channel and join us!



  • 1st Place: 1 Month Core Pro + 800 Fragments

  • 2nd Place: 1 Month Core + 600 Fragments

  • 3rd Place: 1 Month Core + 400 Fragments


Winners will be announced by June 25th!

Jump-start your creativity and get ready for a quick timed art challenge! The prompt today is a photography challenge, but you don’t need a fancy camera or to be a pro photographer to participate.

Take a photo of something that makes you perceive it as something it’s not. Basically, something “you can’t unsee.”

This type of illusion is called “pareidolia,” and it can be as simple as an electrical socket that looks like a shocked face, a heart shape on a cat’s fur, a rock that looks like the profile of an old man, or a cloud formation that looks like a sheep.


Bienveillant ou malveillant ?
Pareidolia Heart
Conversation with Tree Spirit
Pareidolia: Roman brick

Hello! I hope you are doing alright!

It's been a while since I last wrote one of these, last month I think I felt like I hadn't done much progress to make one, so I skipped it XD

But well, to put it short, I can't believe I've taken half a year in completing this batch! and I'm still not finished with it.. ^^; but I'm really so close to finish..like haha 95% done.

I'd say it's kind of embarrassing how much this has taken, but I guess I did take a whole lot of commission requests back in January.. so maybe shouldn't be so hard on myself lol but anyways... I want to figure out things so I don't make too many people wait so much for their finished work and that I don't overwork myself too much either, hopefully I find a balance regarding that someday hehe :D

Anyways.. here's what my progress is right now,

Sketch Commission-flat colors:

there's 1 left, it has been a bit on the back for a while, but I hope to retake it again soon, since is just a sketch commission.

Full colored without background:

1 left as well!

this one has multiple characters, so I'm still working on this one!

I think they were 14 in total and I have like 7 done already, so I'm around halfway that one!

4 characters are now in the coloring phase also!

Full colored with background:

1 left too!

is in sketch phase still too

there's other commission that I had from last year that I was waiting for some info before I could start with it, so I'm working on that one as well,

besides of that, I'm also an artist for 2 independent comic projects!

I still can't tell you what they're about, but I'm looking forward to the moment I can show more of them! ^-^

and ok, regarding when commissions open again:

I'm still not sure... but I want to take a break from commission work to dedicate time to these other 2 projects I'm working on and also for personal projects, specially for portfolio and commission info changes .. I may take some aleatory work on the way, but in general I want to have only these 2 projects and personal work to work with for a while :aww:

so anyways, thanks for reading! and thank you all for your patience ^_^

I hope you have a nice and safe weekend!

oh and also Happy pride month! rabbit heart emoji

I'm looking for someone who can write a fan-fiction for me. Because I have a request. Well, to be more

specific, I would like you to write me the romance

fan-fictions of my favorite pairings. Hmm, since

I'm focusing on The Mystic Stones and MHA, I'll

go with Samantha Powers and Spinner. For instance,

one of them feel sorry for the other for being lonely.

Or it's up to you of how they first met in a different

way like childhood friends, high school, etc. Well, you

get the ideas. The point is I haven't had any new requests

of fan-fictions for a long time. Will you do it for me?
