LET'S SPICE THINGS UP HEY GUYS SO HERE'S THE THING
When I started this group, I had hopes and dreams. I HAD A VISION.
I didn't. I really didn't. But the thing is, this group is positively DULLSVILLE. That is definitely at least 80% my fault since I do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I sit around and procrastinate and read about the futility of life in translated Russian literature by myself at night in the dark alone (I'm completely joking, I don't do this at all. Come on, I'm super cool).
Anyways, the thing is this: I think that we need to do something. I don't know what that something is. Maybe a contest? OCT? I HAVE NO IDEA. So I'm just going to leave this journal here and if you have any ideas, DON'T BE AFRAID OR TOO LAZY TO SPEAK UP AND PLEASE COMMENT AN IDEA THAT YOU LIKE!
That is all.
Thanks for reading, fishies,
Updated Folders and StuffLimitations have been set for submissions and a new folder has been added for commissions and stuff you want to sell. If you have any suggestions or requests, please message me
Hoping to get more involved again, I'll see you ducks later
OCT WINNERS (FINALLY)If any of you remember, I created a OCT, Haunted House themed a long time ago and it is high time that I delivered the prizes.
THE WINNER: :iconWrapUp: did a tremendous job of keeping the stories up (though I do remember a panic when I discovered the original account had gone away) and keeping it interesting. Thank you so much for participating, I truly enjoyed your writing and I hope you continue to do so (Did you switch accounts again? I can only find the entries on your account).
THE RUNNER UP: :iconRifleTwoFour: To be honest, it really was super close between you and WrapUp. Both of you were strong writers, it was just a tiny difference. You too, should never ever quit writing because you did a fantastic job. Thank you so much for joining my little tournament.
Everyone please check these two out, as I think they deserve at the very least a chance of a page view for not only writing to their fullest but for also managing the deadlines and challenging themselves and each other.
Hi Everyone!Hello everyone, JJ here. I'm sad to announce that the contest is not going to happen. I'm also relieved, because I was going to shell out some money for points to give as prizes and now I don't have to do that. Anyways, onto the main topic.
I'm really disappointed in the amount of effort I've been putting in this group. I remember starting this group and how excited I was. I invited people left and right, promoted all of the artists I admired and some who just were plain awesome and deserved it and I loved seeing all the artwork submitted and and and *sob* . . .*clears throat* Anyways. I'd really love to turn this group into a community of just fun people who like art and stuff like that. So, I'll be spending more time on this: inviting more people, commenting on peoples' art, voting and explaining why or why not it was accepted, monitoring the folders, starting more contests with actual prizes, etc. . .
FANTASY CONTEST UPDATESo, five people have joined which means we need SIX more. I've changed it so that the deadline for contestants to enter is AUGUST 22 and the deadline for the actual contest (if eleven in total have joined) is NOVEMBER 22.
PLEASE COMMENT BELOW IF YOU ARE JOINING (even if you've already said so)
Fantasy ContestSo I'm getting back into DA and the group is starting to just become like every other stagnant group so I decided to make a contest! Any fantastical creature is allowed!
1. State that you'll be joining (and follow through)
2. It can be ANYTHING as long as it's Fantasy-Related
3. A short paragraph describing what you created and why
4. A minimum of 11 entries in total are required to make this a contest. Otherwise prizes won't be awarded (So tell your friends!!!)
5. The deadline is AUGUST 22
A watch from JJmyster22, a llama, a slice of cake, a requested piece
(If you can offer prizes that'd be great)
So let's reiterate! There will be no prizes unless eleven people join and submit their entries by August 22.
CHANGING THE FOLDERSSorry guys, but the folders are getting out of hand and there's art pieces that could easily go into multiple folders and a lot of you appear to have little clue to which folder is appropriate for your work of art.
Let's make this easier for the both of us.
Next week I will re-organize the folders so that they are like this:
-Photography and Photomanipulations
and of course the featured folder
And I'm going to put a new rule in the featured folder, SUBMISSIONS ARE ONLY ALLOWED ONCE A MONTH PER PERSON to further encourage you really put in your BEST work
Questions? Comments? leave them in the comment section below!
Much love from :iconkuneria: and the rest of the STFU gang!
PS You guys want to submit ideas for a new contest? ;D I'm open to suggestions! Maybe something summery?
Valentines ContestI feel like as a group, we haven't been doing much stuff lately. So let's have a small contest. Not anything big, just a small Valentines contest. Anything goes, as long as it has to do with romance or hearts or some shit like that. If you can give prizes, that'd be great.

The Trading Post08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating! We hope these changes make the Trading Post easier to use! -Loppy
07.12.18. Welcome to the Trading Post! In an attempt to cut down on the amount of journals we receive via submissions every day, we have opened this center as an easy way to see all current and active trades! Here you
Art Trade (OPEN)Very sorry I wasn't able to respond quickly to the last batch, ATs are open for a short while but I will be moving soon so it might be subject to some delay, for the same reason I might also not be able to do too many trades qq
ATs are accepted based on
-How I like your art style (not necessarily skill related)
-How I feel able to draw your character
-Character designs and how they might inspire me
Will do anything for good friends
This following section is important! Please read this section even if you don't read the others!
* Please understand that I do not accept every offer. I accept trades based on "how I need you style for my characters", not "how good your art is".
* Please don't rush me ;; and so won't I. I do have other stuff to do in the mean time but I will get the AT done asap.
I will only begin or send you my part after I see your part or at lea
art challenge event [open]i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that.
what is the challenge?
draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance.
what are the rewards?
your art gets better and u get more comfortable exploring the way u personally enjoy drawing by trying new things!
also i will add thumbnails of each piece to this journal - so making something that stands out creatively is a bonus, since whoever sees anyone mentioning this journal will see your work!
are there rest
psa about design/art similaritiesabout design similarities
i will be the first to say i can tell when a design of mine is referenced or if a design has been inspired by my art.
sometimes it's more obvious and other times it's subtle. and sometimes, it's an honest coincidence!
i know how much it sucks to feel like bits and pieces of my design were plucked to make someone else's, but at the same time i know that's just how inspiration works sometimes. sometimes you get a little too close to comfort but eventually you fall into your own groove.
lately i've been very into exploring rainbows, clouds, stars, space, and a general 90's nostalgic type feel for my designs because
i've been falling back in love with the aesthetics from my childhood for what seems to be comfort reasons.
if i step on some toes and make designs that feel too similar to others', i'm honestly sorry!
if you've ever felt like i've made a design too close to yours and you approached me about it, i'd be first & quick to admit i
