MORE creatures to the finnedyr world CONTESTCLOSEDCONTEST IS NOW CLOSED, judging taking place
8D SO I have been promising to do this contest for a while! SO FOR those who remember back to the finnedyrworld. The world needs some more creatures! And a lot of people has been asking to add more to it. SO therefor It would be fun to make a contest around it!
So far Finnedyr are the only special species living there.
They are water creatures, living and based of water.
BUT WE HAS LOTS OF LANDS and other places in the world, so we should have some other based element creatures to!
I will split this up in 5 diffrent cathegories, which means there will be 5 winners. The winner will get its design/species into this world, to live alongside finnedyrs!
Some important things to remember!
- The species that you make needs to be an open species so others can make it aswell.
- BE SURE to read all the rules and text under!
Juicefast is officially over!10 days ago, I decided to go on a juice fast that was going to last 10 days. Eating nothing else but juice. I did consume some vegetables and fruit aswell now here and there. But mostly juice.
I FEEL SO good and healthy.
I lost probably around 10 pounds.
No headaches or stomac pains, which I usually have now and then.
SO MUCH MORE ENERGY
my skin looks a lot healthier.
I can consume vegetables/fruits I hate which is good for me by just mixing them with other stuff. Brilliant!
SO much waste of fruit/vegetable meat, and always having to clean the juicer every time. But thats it.
>8D IT FELT SO GOOD EATING A SANDWHICH TODAY NOW THAT IVE DONE and been drinking nothing but fruit and veggies for 10 days.
I will keep making juice, and as a lover of juice before I got the juicer, im happy to stop buying processed nonnutrientfilled juice and change
Rant smant pants Ant.I am not naming any names, and if you somehow know who/which ones, or what im talking about keep it to yourself.
I found out some people draw me things and are nice to me just to get free art back from me, or try to be my friend so they can get free art. I am disgusted with this kind of behaviour. there has been around 3 incidents now and whoever gets to know about stuff like this and decides to tells me, did the right thing and im very thankfull to know whats going on.
So im making this journal now incase more are sitting around doing this, because if I do find out I will not be a very happycrab
Not only this , but I also found out these people are real assholes towards other people. They ganged up on a 13 year old calling them a looser, they dont respect their friends and they dont even have the balls to talk to me directly.
If you are in a mindset that you will get art back from me by drawing me something then stop drawing me something. Its called a gi
SO I was doing some wondertrading and.." Satan sent over Ryhorn "
10 trades later
" Jesus sent over Weedle"
LET THE BATTLE BEGIN!
Switch around collab CLOSED PEPS CHOOSENIm sure many of you have seen them by now, but its like this
KEEP in in mind all 4 artists will do all the parts like the three did over. so you need to provide shading and background examples aswell!
I Want to do another one of these! BUT tHIS TIME with 3 people, so background is its own cathegory!
AND I want to do it with 3 people who has a COMPLETELY diffrent style than myself! like lining/coloring/shading/way to draw wise
So! Post examples of your art under, and I will choose 3 people out of you all that will join in on this when im done at work today!
Please take into concideration that you will have to color it fully and do a full background, do not enter if you dont have time or use over a week to finish art. traditional is fine aswell! but then you need to scan/print other versions.
Skill doesnt really matter! Ijust want to see how 4 totally diffrent artstyles comes together
Sketch - Lineart - Color/shading - Background
Finnedyria CONTEST RESULTS!I have gone through all the entries and i have finally decided who I like the best and feel works the best into the world! I also wanted to choose entries that did not look to much like a finnedyr to begin with like bodyshape. THERE WERE Lots of amazing enteries! but could only be 4 winners! The criteria I wrote down at the beginning of the contest had a lot to do with why I choose the ones under and why I didnt choose others. I felt like the ones under really fit the criterias I added. I had many other favourites to, but I felt many of them looked to much like cats or dogs, which might be the reason why they did not get picked. BUt great work! fun to see so many people design creative things! I hope you keep the ones you made open for others who really loved them to make!
ANYWHO TIME FOR RESULTS!! dundundunnnn!!!
Winner of Fire cathegory goes to:
Out of all the firecreatures, I felt like this really was SPOT on! I absol

Can I take a few moments of your time?I just want to say a few words. Words I've been wanting to say for a while not but haven't had the much-ness or know-how to say; mostly because I didn't want it to come off as just another one of 'those' journal entries. One easily ignored.
Firstly, thank you to all my watchers, followers, and fans. I rarely say 'fans' because to me one would have to be famous to have fans but it seems more or less over the last couple months (or years even) I've become somewhat infamous for all the wrong reasons. More so when it comes to my small circle of friends.
You see, I don't get on easily with others, not online or in real life. More so in real life, mostly out of fear I suppose... But that's neither here nor there. Back on track.
What I'm trying to say is just thank you, for putting up with the crap I've pulled, the misery I've brought on through countless grueling journals about how crap my life is, this, that, and the next thing.
A huge thanks out to those who actuall
Art theft (not what you think lol)No this isn't going to be me mad or bitching but I have to mention this since I think most of the time it confuses people by what I mean when I say 'I don't mind but I do mind' when it comes to copying/referencing/tracing my artwork.
I've seen quite a few times where people take a few things from my work (shading, line style, etc) and implant it into their own. THAT I don't mind... I've done that with artist's work that I've admired for a long time so I don't dare get mad about something like that.
What I don't really feel comfortable with is when other artists (young or old, age doesn't matter) copy every little stylization thing I do in my work, right down to the way I draw ears, muzzles, noses, fur, etc. It's one thing to implement one or two things as a homage or just to try it out and see how it fits, but when you take 99% of the another person's style (which yes, style does exist... you just have to work a lot to develop it) that's where the line goes from influence t
Pardon me...I know it's going to be another one of 'those' journals but whatever. I've got to say something about a couple things before I get really pissed off and snap on someone.
No, this may not pertain to everyone reading this but some of you may understand where I'm coming from on this be it because you've done these things or because you've had it happen before. Don't take it personally, I'm not attacking you at all. It's a general address to a couple situations. Relax and take it for what it is.
Firstly please stop begging me to draw stuff for you?
I asked for reference sheets the other day for reasons such as gifts for the Season (Thanksgiving/Christmas) as a surprise for people. I didn't say 'free requests' or 'post a reference and I'll draw your character'. I'm sorry if people got that kind of impression from just my asking for references without saying why.
Don't make me feel guilty about it if I say no either. I've got enough on my plate concerning commissions a
OC art contest!! (closed!)EDIT 12/2 - the contest is now totally, 100% closed and no further entries will be accepted!
as you may know, i am not the only person judging all your fantastic entries; i have about 3 extra judges that will help me out to make sure the judging is fair and nobody will be picked just for being my friend or something! this does mean however, that the judging may take some time, whatnot with communication and all, so please bear with me!
for reference though, the entries will be judged on effort, originality and quality.
EDIT 4/2 - the contest has been extended for a week!
EDIT 18/1 - I really really really want people to enter, so everyone who enters gets a very badly done thank-you doodle like so! Also, there will be a sketch raffled among the participants excluding the winners at the end, so even if you didn't win anything with your entry, you still have a chance to win something because I think you're
I miss the old symbols but...I've been a member of this community for more than 8 years, I'm certainly not the oldest member here, but I think we all can agree 8 internet years are like a short eternity, it's a lot of time and just to prove it, tell me; how many sites have you been a member of for at least 8 years? I can only name one, and that's deviantArt. Also, 8 years are the 61% of the 13 years this site as been alive, so I've been here for more than half of this site's life.
As an old member of this site, I, like a lot of you, also miss the old symbols.
As stated on the official article, there are a few things that have been part of the site for a long time, without which deviantArt wouldn't feel like deviantArt, like the characteristic green layout or the user symbols that until recently, were part of the site.
I agree it does feel weird, the symbols I grew up with, so to speak, as an artist, are
See your Inward EyeIn an ever-changing world,
faster and faster every day,
you may have lost your way,
overwhelmed by the events;
We are busy the whole day,
thinkin about the bills we have to pay,
thinkin about the things we'll never see,
or what others want us to be;
In our minds wandering,
no time to play,
no time to create,
we just keep frantically running;
But there's something inside you,
something that can make a grey sky turn blue,
something that can make a dull city breathe,
that can make you stop clenching your teeth;
And I here begin to wonder:
"Have you ever stopped to drink some tea,
Have you ever stopped to simply close your eyes and see?"
So I've been thinking about writing this for awhile, and recently I noticed a lot of people are commenting in ways that can make the artist feel uncomfortable.
This journal is about commenting etiquette.
If you comment like this I'm not mad. Please don't feel like im targeting anyone or anything- it's just something I've noticed a ton of people do.
to start out, I'd like to show you some of the types of comments I see A LOT
the self-pity comment
"This is really pretty. I'll never be able to draw like this I'm awful at drawing"
this is the most awkward way to get attention- the artist feels pressured to give you attention and compliment you. This can be super hard on the artist.
INSTEAD, make it positive!
"This is really pretty.
PovertyIt is Sunday, and a girl is dying.
You must have seen her, with cracked hands
And cheeks as hollow as her eyes, staring defiantly
At every person that passes her without a glance.
She thinks they must be able to smell it on her:
The bitter tang of metals and grit in her water
And the faint but penetrating scent of sickness.
She sells candies and paper flowers from a cart,
And stands up straight with her dress hanging
Like a sack, though it was a lovely yellow once.
Every so often as she passes her wares to a buyer,
She thinks that the petals and colorful wrappers
Look like wishes should; but she cannot have them.
She must always return to the same cramped room
And dream fitfully of fresh food, health, and comfort
While life pales from her face, like the waxing moon.
One cannot live on bread alone,
But that would be a start.

You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
