2016 Improvement challenge
Update 01/01/2017
Hey guys. Just a small update when it comes to the contest
The submission date is over. I will be adding every single work to the contest folder within the next few days. But DeviantArt is buggy, and I might have missed a few notifications.  
If you entered, please check if your work is in the contest folder. If it somehow isn't, shoot me a message so I can add it.
To be honest... I have over 200 entries and I had never expected so many.
Judging will therefore be a lot harder than I originally imagined, moreover because a lot of people added great descriptions to their submissions and it's going to take me some time to read them all.
Therefore the judging will take a bit longer than I originally envisioned.
Expect the contest results to be up by the end of January. 
Thank you all kindly for your interest and understanding :heart:

I'm promoting this Note we got from QuiEstInLiteris :
Author David Ruffle is organizing a compilation of mostly unpublished Sherlockian writers - poetry, short works, humour, etc. Right now, he's just collecting contact information, but it's open to all. Thought there might be a few in the group who would be interested
Have fun!

How should I price my art?
If you spend a lot of time in the DA forums, you will see this topic spring up again and again. Whether you want to earn a living doing freelance art, or you just want to do an occasional commission, the following guidelines may help you. For the purposes of this journal I'm going to assume that you developed sufficient skill for potential clients to want to purchase your work. If that is not the case, then get back to studying and practicing :)
1) Why is it so difficult to choose a price? Why can't someone look at my art and tell me what to charge?

Because your ability to sell something is not just a matter of assigning a price based on your skill level! If three people can draw the same drawing with the same level of skill, one might be able to sell the art for $10, another might be able to sell the art for $100 and the third might not be able to sell it at all depending on how good they are at "marketing" (seeking out or attracting the best clients and convincing

Something i'm planning
Congrats if you were on Discord and you saw me reveal the picture of this a while ago =P

But now.... the description (of sorts)
So in a way.... is it kind of obvious the creators were planning some sort of story towards this guy?

But thanks to them not doing anything that means i am free with my canon story
And that is where this series will come in
But not only this i'm hoping via the power of google translate to write the parts that you read as if you're in Mustachio's viewpoint will be Spanish because he is that in my version and grew up around that. Of course this might get tedious but you know what i can try. And trying is what i suffer at but shhhh
Also.... yeah the canon of my Mustachio will be fully explained as to who he is, where he comes from, who his biological dad is and more detail into Matilde and the Grande Gang members
So this is what the series is. Probably feely... probably funny at p

Hey (with a sketch)
Okay so I keep not doing drawings but I've kind of planned out a Children that never were au drawing so maybe that will go better I don't know depends if I mess up (highly likely)
Also yesterday in illustration we did se text things and I chose a Frida kahlo quote and Cher, wait no iPad not Cher I mean the teacher, asked me if I liked her and, oop, there goes the flustered internal heating. That happened the other day when I got the Frida kahlo cards actually. Internal heating went from 0 to 100 real quick
...... me and mum really want a car sticker that says Bertha 
Also I keep giving animate objects names. Like the other day before Halloween mum and I were looking for Christmas garlands for up the rail banisters but we saw these stupid deer things and we got it and I was like 'his name is Peter'. 
also I called a dumb cat doorstop Gilbert but he's gorgeous
