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:

How to get Popular as an Artist (EDIT)EDIT: Sooooo, this journal definitely proved my thoughts and point. Congratulations to myself, this is ironically my most popular journal on my DA.
NOW! I want to clear something first as many people seem to be mistaking and sort of bashing in the comments. People who do this type of content are not bad nor should be shamed. That is, if you really enjoy doing this type of content, there is nothing wrong drawing your favorite characters, wolves, cats, sexual content, tutorials, ect. (minus the drama... like seriously, this world needs less of that). I'm just a WEEE BIT tired of seeing young people and people that do art go straight into doing this because they get more noticed or this is the only way to get anywhere. They complain or abandon their passion/love that isn't 'oh so popular' (because it doesn't have advertisements/a pre-built fanbase, or a giant movie/tv show/game behind it) and move into something else that is trending just so they can be noticed. I know you want feedback.

I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.
I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.
I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking

Updates as of October2009: Missing Halloween's story was created. Discontinued.
2010: Attempted to rework in 3D. Failed. Discontinued.
2013: Revived and started the animation production. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2014: Resumed and held a contest. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2015: Resumed. Missing Halloween didn't miss Halloween!
For the past month, me and Negyek were hard at work, day and night, to finish Missing Halloween. Later on, Procrastacat and VenBright were hired to give various voices for the ending scene. All of these are, of course, paid jobs, thanks to my Patreon supporters.
By November 29, the animation is officially done. All 8+ minutes of it.

The 'FNAF Sister Location' Anti-Hate RantOK, so everyone should have seen Scott's new teaser by now.
I was not going to write about this originally (so forgive me for rushing this journal), since I figured that literally everyone knows about the news by now, but the way people are announcing it and reacting to it disturbs me. I thought we were better than this, but I guess not.
Literally everywhere I go today, everyone I've seen is spamming memes like and saying that Scott is milking the series and beating a dead horse. Even people who have "left" the FNAF fandom and have decided to pop back in just to put in their discouraging, even hating, opinions. It's so bad, that I feel people are hating JUST because it has become cool to hate, as some kind of herd mentality.
Well guess what? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks! Scott is clearly going to do what Scott is going to do! The amount of hate th
