I have started a new group for animal artists and photographers All are welcome to join.
I'm backHi all,
RebeccaBrogden is back as founder. I have made a few changes that will hopefully make things easier. When you submit to the general folders, submissions will auto approve. Please don't abuse the system. If I see that people are placing items in the wrong folder, I will take off auto submissions. If a folder gets full please note the group and I will make a new one.
Anyone want to take over?I am dealing with some life problems, and I really don't think I care for this group anymore...I am not on Deviantart much lately, let alone checking in here. It might be best for me to pass it on to someone else. I'm sorry I never got around to getting those contests rolling.
Themes on hold maybe?So I guess not many are really interested in doing the monthly theme thing. I mean, one person was interested. Maybe there would be more interested if it was a contest and prizes were offered? I'd like to offer things like DA subscriptions, but that would have to wait a while, as I am broke. Broke-diddly-oak. Maybe in a few months I can be able to do that.
For now, how about we have a simple theme of "Falling Leaves" until winter starts?
:iconoakleafplz::iconsaysplz:I've fallen and I can't get up!!!
Here are some contests in other groups at the moment:
October theme - Pumpkins!:iconleafline1plz::iconleafline2plz::iconleafline3plz::iconleafline1plz::iconleafline2plz::iconleafline3plz::iconleafline1plz::iconleafline2plz::iconleafline3plz::iconleafline1plz:
I waited a while on the last journal to see if anyone had any more suggestions for a theme, and only one person suggested something, which was a pumpkin carving contest. But unless I could get some kind of prizes, I think it should just be a theme/prompt/challenge/whatever you want to call it. (After all, what is a contest without a prize?)
Or maybe I could offer a free painting from myself as a prize. I could mail it to the winner if it is a small one (about the size of a regular sheet of printer paper or smaller[I won't paint it ON printer paper, of course!]). I could also do an art feature for the winner (Though, I don't have many active watchers, so maybe that would not be very good). Perhaps someone else can offer prizes? Maybe points, llamas, features?
Group theme(s) for us? + Affiliate's contest!:iconleafline1plz::iconleafline2plz::iconleafline3plz::iconleafline1plz::iconleafline2plz::iconleafline3plz::iconleafline1plz::iconleafline2plz::iconleafline3plz::iconleafline1plz::iconleafline2plz::iconleafline3plz:
Now that Fall has come around(Here in the northern half of the world, at least), I think it may be time to have some sort of group event or two. We could have a special art/photography theme. Maybe we could do a monthly theme until the end of winter. For example, an obvious theme would be "Halloween" for the month of October. If you have any ideas, you are welcome to share in the comments. If we could get prizes, we could make these monthly contests, instead. What would make for good prizes? Would anyone be interested in this?
(I was supposed to mention this weeks ago, but I haven't been online that much as of late and just plain forgot. I'm sorry.)
Hello From the New FounderI'll be managing the group now at least through the summer. Hi!
I'm new to being a group leader, so please bear with me if I don't appear to know what I'm doing.
I think I could start a contest or two soon, but I'm not exactly sure what kind of contest to make it. Ideas would be very much appreciated.
Looking for New FounderDear members,
I personally do not have time to manage this group any more. I have 2 other groups I would like to focus my energy. It has been a great 6 years with you all. Hopefully a new founder will come a long that can devote more time to this group by hosting events, contests, etc. If you would like to become the new founder, please note the group. Otherwise, I will be passing this group to the :iconGroupAdoptionCenter:

The Art of MisunderstandingCompliments are a bit of a tricky and weird thing.
Especially on an international webpage.
=> the misunderstanding
In Switzerland you can tell someone who's a cool person that they are "en geile siech". Now, this is a really big compliment here, even though it's not considered the most polite vocabulary. Still, big compliment.
If you translate that 1:1 into any other language, you will tell the other person they are a sexually arousing and rotting corpse of a horse.
Don't do that, most people don't will look kindly on it. d:
Of course the same problem exists in the other way too. I was feeling rather saddened by the first one who told me that my drawings are "da shit". I had NO idea that this is a positive thing! I just assumed the other person told me that my works were bad. Thankfully, I asked them why they thought of my drawings as bad, which helped clearing that misunderstanding up really fast.
=> "Looks like Ghibli!"
After a few years on dA, I started to hate
Kastraz's 1,500 POINT RAFFLE GIVEAWAY!! [OPEN]I haven't been able to do much art at all lately (anime con prep, finding a kitten & figuring out what to do with her, etc), and there's a lot of people waiting on trades/requests, commissions for me right now so as you can tell, I'm still quite busy...

DARPG Personality Maker RNGTo Use:
For each category simply open up random.org and put 1 in the min section and the max number given next to each category in the max section and hit generate. Do this with all or only some of the categories, if you don't like what you get you can always re-role.
Works best if you add multiple quirks and fears.

1. Lazy: I don't focus. Being a couch potato is more appealing.
2. Energybomb: ZIP! ZOOM! WEEEE! I'm hyper active and that means I'm really hard to train and getting my attention will take a lot of patience. I will need a lot of activation to tire me out.
3. Snob: Hmmpft…You're not good enough to command me .
4. Bipolar: WOO I'm focused! I'm happy! I'm annoyed and refuse to do anything you tell me.
5. Nervous: I heard something out there…I'm pretty sure I heard something…*perks ears and stares intently*

ALL Next Gen Fun Facts!This is fan made!
All Next Gen Fun Facts! :iconwoootplz: Everything from my previous fun facts journals as well as some new ones are in here I probably won't make any more new Fun Facts journals. Instead, I'll just add them in here and let you know if there are any updates (if they are worth mentioning of course) I'll probably add more to the younger characters later since I'm still developing them. HOLY FRICK THIS JOURNAL IS LONG!
If this journal in particular is too long, you can look at these kinda shorter ones that narrow the characters down by category

30 Day Art Improvement (Hell) ChallengeI originally posted this on my Tumblr blog, and since it seems to be popular I thought I'd challenge people here.
30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge
Are you tired of feeling like your art just isn't improving? Do you want to do a 30-day challenge that's actually useful? Welcome to 30 Days of Improvement Hell.
I made this because I've been feeling super 'blah' about my art these days, and I needed something to kick-start myself. Who wants to do this with me!? Start now or whenever you can (now you procrastinators!). Challenge yourself and have fun at the same time!
Tag your posts with #Improvement Hell (more for Tumblr posts, but I suppose you can do it here too) so everyone can follow along and see each other's awesome artwork.
What are you waiting for? START!

The 30 Day Character Development Challenge~![Stole off someone's facebook]

2.) What are your characters most prominent physical features?
3.) Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don't have any, is there a reason?

5.) What's your character's ranking on the KINSEY SCALE?
6.) Describe your character's happiest memory.
