Lone DonutHey all! :iconMf99k: here.
I just finished a little project I did for fun and I was wondering if anyone here would like to take a few minutes to watch it :3
Upadate - New Folder Category!Due to a misunderstanding and the recognition of a community need, we have added a new folder category to the gallery- "Help Wanted" ads! This is now the acceptable place to post Help Wanted ads for personal projects, as well as animation-related editorials. This applies to admins, too- a brief scan of previous journal entries shows a historical trend of trolling for talent through the official group journal, which will (hopefully) not happen again. So please feel free to submit your ads to the appropriate folder as either journal entries or informational deviations. If you don't know how to submit a journal entry to a group, here's a handy tutorial:
Things that are OK to submit:
- "Help Wanted" ads for personal projects
- Links to Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdfunding campaigns
- Ads for multi-animator projects (MAPs)
- Any other written works or editorials perta
Contest - Voting starts soon!UPDATE June 23rd: And we've reached the deadline! (Technically two days ago). Voting will begin in a new journal in a few days. In the meantime, check below to make sure your entry is listed.
UPDATE June 15th: Just about six days left in the contest! If you don't see your entry listed here, it means you did not submit it to the correct folder. Just comment on this journal with a link to your entry before the deadline, and I'll still add it
UPDATE May 14th: With four entries and a week left, we have decided to extend the deadline to JUNE 21st 2017, 11:59PM EST. Again, at this busy time of year, it seems necessary to give a little more time. This deadline is final! No extensions will be given after this, and anything submitted even a minute late will not be included. Hope this is fine with everyone- current entrants are welcome to make edits as they see fit
UPDATE May 1st: A little under a month left until the soft deadline! We've already received
Possible New Contest - UPDATEUpdate: Thanks for all of the great feedback! It looks like our next contest is going to be option 3, the Action Challenge. Option 2 also got a lot of interest (and it happens to be my favorite ) so we will likely use that for a future contest. That'll give me time to think it through more, and to start collecting character sheets/layouts.
So, what kind of action would you guys prefer? I'd like it to be something general enough to be inclusive to most character types (bipedal, quadrupedal, etc.), so we may just start with something simple like a jump, yawn, walk or run cycle. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
Also, as a side note, I was thinking of combining Options 1 and 4 into a revolving group activity. Once every two months or so the "prompt" will change, and (if there is enough participation) the prompt-related entries will be voted on, and the highest rated will be featured on the group's front page. Let me know if this is something you'd be interested in!
Help WantedAs you all may have noticed, it takes way too long for your submissions to get approved. This is because I'm not very active anymore, and the DA app doesn't allow me to approve group submissions from my phone. (I really wish it would, because then I could approve stuff while I'm at work) The upshot of this is, we need some more help around here. Anyone who wants to become a contributor, and help approve submissions to the group, shoot me a message. If you're really ambitious and want to run contests and such, even better!
Submission GlitchHey everyone, sorry to announce but you should know that because of the changes to DA recently, all the groups on the site are bugging out and showing all your submissions under the wrong folders, but when declined, it is sometimes changed and reveals you submitted to the correct folder, but the submission queue, for some reason, says differently. Either way, this is a site-wide bug so we'll just have to wait until the help desk can straighten it out and get it back to working correctly. Until then, I don't know if it will be possible to submit anything, depending on what :iconjohnnydwicked: wants to do. Anyway, we'll keep you posted, as things update.
Looking for Animatorshttp://fav.me/d7v02pm This person is looking for animators for a project. Check it out and if you're interested, give them a hand!
NO COMMENTS ABOUT WORKING FOR FREE. IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED, SIMPLY DON'T COMMENT. Seriously everyone, if you don't want to help, navigate away from the journal and don't comment. Is it really important to spam people with comments if you're not going to help? Only comment if you're interested in helping, otherwise, keep it to yourself, please. Thank you.
Toyhouse codes for sale/trade [OPEN]I got Premium on Toyhouse, so I can generate two codes per week to give away.

Some quick recognition tipsI remember it can be quite tough to gain recognition on DeviantArt when you first start out. It's a massive website with so many features and ways to interact! When I started out, I was lucky to have a friend of mine giving me a little shoutout in their journal, which gained me my first couple of watchers. I'll do the same in this journal for some new Deviants I found that have really cool galleries, and I thought of giving a couple of tips as well on gaining recognition:
~ TIPS ~
Loads of interaction! DeviantArt is considered a social media website as well as an art site, and offers many more tools for interaction, feedback, and commenting than Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr ever will! Use it wisely If you want to receive comments, and have people view your art, you have to put some effort in yourself as well. Comment on other people's artwork, +fav it, +watch those you really like, keep communicating. Try interacting with other new ar
[CLOSED] COMMISSION SLOTSA COUNTDOWN TIMER TO OPENING MY COMMISSIONS
I hope you all are doing well
I'm opening a few commissions slots right now. But as I promised to some of you, they all are "first come - first serve slots". Also, commissioners would be added to my "To-do list" in the order they took the slot, which means that the one who took the slot first would get his order finished first. This time it'll take me from one to four weeks to finish your commission (depends on your number on my "To-do list"). It might take longer as my schedule is unstable ^_^' But if I need a lot of extra time I will definitely tell you.
YOU CAN ONLY TAKE A SLOT WHEN THE TITLE OF THIS JOURNAL SAYS "OPEN"
NOTICE - 1: One slot - one drawing
16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.
A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.
I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they

Hello Friends New and Old!Hey gang! This entry's been a long time coming and I've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's just jump in!
First off, to whoever got me the core membership: THANK YOU!! Your kindness was a big factor in my decision to be more active on dA again. That was a wonderful present so much gratitude and hugs. Wow.
NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)
Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy. I've gotten a lot of questions about my work, views, and all sorts of other stuff. Since I've been away for a while, I'm gonna do an FAQ in a week or two to get you guys up to speed. I did want to give you folks a shout-out though since I know there's been an influx with some of my older work making the rounds again. I'm very grateful to have you here.
Now, to my longtime friends here: You're are probably wondering "Where have you been, K-Bo?" Wow. Where to start... Without getting into to
Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!

YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.
Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo
