I hope everyone had a great 2015 and I hope everyone will have a great 2016 and beyond! Sooner or later, we'll get around to another tournament.
Here's to the future!
WIFL PostponedI'm sorry for this, guys. But my job has informed me that we're going to have and unusually high volume of work for the upcoming holiday season this year and offered me (essentially) unlimited overtime between now and the end of January. It's an opportunity I can't turn down and with the printing work that's already started coming in, I can tell you I'm going to be too busy to manage another WIFL tournament right now. I really am very sorry, you guys.
I know a bunch of you have been following me for a long time and will understand my circumstances. But for those of you who don't know me very well, I apologize for making a terrible first impression with you.
Update: Still need lots more Battle Artists!Update: We currently have six volunteer artists to illustrate battle art for WIFL. Fortunately most are willing to do 2 or more. We will need at least 20 illustrations to be covered. Please let me know if you're willing to do an illustration.
Battle Art Illustrations So Far:
Now we need volunteers to illustrate WIFL's "Battle Art"! This is always my favorite part of the tournaments. The way it works is I mark you down as an illustrator. Once the characters are paired off, I'll send you a note with two character ref pages and you illustrate those two characters battling it out however you like. Here are several examples from previous tournaments to give you an idea:
16 Contestants! Time to submit your characters!We currently have 16 participants. That is enough to have a full tournament with nearly twice as many rounds as usual, taking the "Losing Matches" into account. I personally don't want this tournament to be particularly enormous because I simply don't have the free time I used to with the old tournaments. So unless I start getting a lot of sudden requests to join, I think we'll just stick with 16 for this tournament. (And who knows, maybe it will generate enough interest to have another one before long.)
So that means this is our roster for T6! Now it's time for you guys to choose the characters you want to enter into the tournament. Please post a comment on this blog entry with a link to a good reference for this character. That linked image will be what the artists will refer to for the Battle Art.
01. :iconsmithandcompanytoons: - TINA
02. :icondanlei: - VALO
03. :iconhankinstein: - FELIX
04. :iconbluebottleflyer: - FLYER
05. :iconssbfreak: - OLIG
06. :icongus-val: - LADY GEGE
(UPDATE) WIFL T6: NEGATIVE MOUNTAINUPDATE#2: Here's a brief explanation of what makes T6 different from previous tournaments:
UPDATE#1: If more people don't join, we'll just go one with 16 members. The tournament will still work out with 16 people, just with one less round. I personally wouldn't mind a smaller tournament this time. What do you guys think?
I'm still putting together the new rules and setup for the next tournament and am currently accepting entrants. I wanted to know how many people wanted to join before I sent out invitations to former members because I think it's only fair that current WIFL members should be allowed first entries.
This tournament is going to be limited to 32 players. There are still plenty of slots available so if you want to enter, let me know in the comments. You can also extend invitations to your own friends if you like, if they've never entered one before. I will post new INTRO information and RULES information soon. This one's going to be slightly different from

a WINNINGisforLOSERS Trading Card Game?(It's been a while. Here's a journal copied from my personal journal, but it's relevant here.)
What do you guys think of creating a WIFL trading card game? Would you be interested in having your character be part of a game in the vein of Magic the Gathering or Yu-Gi-Oh? It's an idea that I've been batting around for a while, mainly trying to think of an idea for a "Simple Complications" card game, but recently some folks have been showing renewed interest in WIFL and I thought "What if it had everyone's characters in it?" I'll obviously have to get permission from a number of folks, but think there's potential in it. I suppose it would be similar to Magic the Gathering in a lot of ways, but with a much MUCH simpler set of rules. It would be a team effort between a number of creators, but I think it would be worth the effort. What do you think?
I work for a printing company and if there was a enough interest in it, I could probably have a few dozen decks printed and boxed.
WIFL's 6th Anniversary!Hi, guys! It's been a while. It just occurred to me that in one week (October 23rd) WIFL will be turning 6 years old! We've had a lot of fun in those six years, as impulsively as the tournaments would come and go. I'm not announcing any new tournaments or anything right now, but I'm confident we'll get one together again before too long.
Instead, I want to invite those of you who still want to be involved with WIFL to participate in the 6th Anniversary Celebration by submitting your characters in a Halloween costume based on another character from WIFL's past tournaments. It can be anyone! The whole point is to celebrate each other and each others' characters! It just so happens to be close to Halloween!
I created a folder titled "6th Anniversary Costume Party!" for you to submit your illustrations. There are no prizes or anything. Just the opportunity to get reacquainted with old and new friends.
Happy Anniversary and Happy Halloween!
It's too quiet here.Really, it is. I mean, when was the last time anything was initiated? Over a year ago from that OC/FC character tournament? I mean, the reason I joined was because this group seemed to be a fun place where everybody could introduce their individual characters, do fun collabs, and have great events. It's was kind of like Super Smash Bros, but for artists' original and even fan characters.
I get that the founder and co-founder may be busy with other things and such, and I'm not asking to be incharge, but I just think it'd be great if we could all do another event of sorts. I was thinking another battle of the characters, but maybe some of you guys have some suggestions that you could throw in? Or just...not care to bother even reading this.

Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and
