Wherein a Pumpkin Achieves Cake
Apparently I placed in the top six carvings, in the lower three! I'm very surprised by this, but moreso, I'm glad my experiment worked. My pumpkin might not have had the most shimmer from underexposing, but it pleased, and best of all, I was pleased. I learned a new technique for future carving, which will add to the fun of it. This contest was my first DA one, and I enjoyed the interaction. It's great to see others out there having fun with it and going around chatting with fellow carvers. At home, there aren't any holiday carvers I know of that do creative gatherings just for that, so this was nice. I know it was a contest, but to be honest, it didn't feel like one. It just felt like a bunch of hobbyists having honest fun with one another. I hope no one took it too seriously.

Sugar Skull with Beet Roses by snerk In all truth, winners of the contest do get good advertising of their creations, so I thought I should mention one that just simply stood out to me out of all others. It's already mentioned on my carving's comments, but I'm doing it here too. Why not, eh? Look at the lighting, the composition, the vivid colors utilized, the design created, and lastly, that flower in her hair...is a beat carving! That right there, people, is the fourth unmentioned winner. Give 'em some love.

"The jolly, candy-like prize!"
So what'd I win? Stuff. I'm actually grateful I'm not getting a trophy, and that's not sour grapes talking, I just wouldn't know where to put it. I own too much stuff. So when the stuff arrives, I'll most likely foist it off on others. I picked a t-shirt with a Buddha on it for my mother, as she just absolutely loves anything with the Buddha on it. And if the stickers are child-friendly, my little niece will enjoy those; doesn't matter what they are, they're sticky, and that means they're schoolbook or hair fodder. The emoticon balls? I know someone who'd love to de-stress by crushing those things. : )

"We've made your account better, stronger, faster!"
So for the next year, I have a DA page that can be more fiddled with than the previous fiddling settings. Adding html images is a neat option, even if most people view your images and not your journals. So I've fiddled, but I wonder if after my 365 is up my account will completely revert in DA's hopes of getting me hooked. Not really. Actually, all this is doing is distracting me from coming up with a respectable redesign for my real website. This place sure does have tons of stuff to amp up the OCD in you. O_o

"I have so many Achieveables!"
Intangible winnings? I have no idea what use points are in real life, but DA's giving me 4,000 of them eventually. I don't live here like some do, so I might give those away when they arrive. *shrug* If they were money, I could donate them to someplace relevant. I could think of a few organizations or family members who could use $4,000. Heck, even $40. Wait, how much are my prizes worth again?...

"Look at your life, now back to me. I'm on a llama, the llama your life could smell like."
Apparently people have also been llama-ing me like crazy too. Y'know, that thing that's apparently some silly form of status symbol on DA. I just found out that if you don't llama people back, they can tend to take it personally too, like, to the level of "U R so off my budE list" type of stuff. I don't know anyone like that, but just to know that's common mentality is kind've weird. Watch "Coming To America" at the part where the fast-food guy is saying how great it will be when he's promoted to burger-flipper, and you'll get what I'm saying. DA Llamas should never be your equivalent to crack cocaine. Just look at the bloody thing. It's not even a relevant part of your page and has nothing to do with your artwork, as if to say you need a distraction from your art to stay interested in a site about art. It just sits there with a number attached to it. Ugh, it's worse than a pet goldfish!

Anyway, that's my routine for the night. No looking a gift horse in the mouth, just enjoying running mine. Thanks to everyone who offered me well-wishes in the running, faved, visited, and yes, even gave me a big ol' spitting quadruped with droopy-eye. You're all awesome. XD

Hey now... I happen to LIKE godlfish. ;P

Great news. Glad you enjoyed the contest.

... and, yeah, money can be turned into points, but not the other way around, although they work similar to money on dA.

:D

You are generous to share your prizes with your family. Wish I knew how you did that beautiful carving! It looks like it took some delicate work.

Oddly enough, it didn't fee delicate. Just felt like I was slivering away a lot. Pretty much, unlike any of the others I did, this one felt more like a drawing, only I was pushing harder at the "pencil" to get lighter areas instead of dark, drawing in reverse.

As for generosity, I don't deserve the complement. : ) I don't want them to be wasted on me is all.

lol, thanks! I'm overdoing the victory dance, as it's so irrelevant in the long run, but it was cool.

I was a llama before llamas were cool. Long before I joined dA. But as I like llamas, the dA llama-fest has been most entertaining for me.

Oh, and again, congrats! Yay!

I know! When the llama thing happened, I knew you'd find it cool. I don't even know why DA chose llamas, but I was thinking "Fog has to be absolutely giddy right now." And that's the only reason they have any meaning to me.

Oh those stupid llamas....

w00t! Congratulations!!!! I'm so happy you won :D Not surprised at all though. You get stuff, account upgrade, and points... Not too shabby of a prize. You should keep those points and put them towards a shirt of something. 4,000 points is equivalent to $50! But I guess that would give you more stuff lol.

I won a shirt anyway, but DA's offerings don't really thrill me, no insult meant to the artists who designed them. I'm just out of the t-shirt stage of my life. My mom'll like it far better.

I spent the points the only way it's relevant on DA; account. The Buy 1 Get 1 came just in time, and it was all free, so I'm good for three years, and DA "paid" for it. The rest I gave to someone else. There's really no more allotted space in the house for prints or wardrobe now.
