Contests, News, Big Numbers!

Thu Mar 21, 2013, 2:56 PM

Hey! Lot's and lots of news!
#1 I just entered a few contests. The first is for :iconthe-great-eyes: the ocean eye contest.
My entry: Ocean Eye by TalesOfNightWing
I am also entered into another contest, outside of DA, The "Princess for a Day Video Contest" With Princess Sophie, her page can be found here:…

In the contest, I had to make a 30 second video of what I would do if I were a princess. The prize is to spend a day with Princess Sophie (a writer, as am I) and to get an honorary title, and the chance to be her Social Media Ambassador. This would be a dream come true for me and an extreme honor!
If you want to view my video:… and also instructions on how to vote for me are here: Please vote for me! by TalesOfNightWing
Please help my dream come true! This would help me to accomplish some of my life goals, of furthering myself as a writer and started to get experience in the real world.


As of today at this time, I have 9,754 pageviews! almose 10,000! All in the course of about a year. I have 194 watchers, almost 200!
My top deviations are Seether by TalesOfNightWing with 234 favorites and 1,143 views!
Envious by TalesOfNightWing Believe by TalesOfNightWing   Blind by TalesOfNightWing  Envious: 191 favs, 1,054 views. Believe: 144 favs, 824 views .Blind: 95 favs, 458 views

My average deviation only gets about, for example, 19 favorites and about 100 views. So those deviations are doing great, and I am really proud about showing my art to the world!

I am now a muse for :iconangeleslaveau: !!! From what I understand, she has finished one work of me (not sure when it will be uploaded, but I am so excited!) She is an amazing person and I am so proud to be her muse! I love being a muse in general. Here are a few of her works:
Who Is She by AngelesLaVeau The Diva by AngelesLaVeau The Silver Ghost by AngelesLaVeau
and notice that the last one resembles my piece, White Vinegar: White Vinegar by TalesOfNightWing and that is how we met!

I am still loving my camera from :iconradare: and I am excited to use it to help me be a muse for Angelles.

One last bit of news, my deviation The Plea by TalesOfNightWing will be featured in the group :iconsimplyexpressions:
and I will be featuring a journal for :iconportraitclub: for the winners of their contest:

Thank you for all the support, everyone. I really appreciate everything. Thank you for helping me grow!

Some wonderful works I have discovered of late I just felt like sharing!
