Moments: Polaroid Series Valentine OfferHello everyone!
Capturing special moments is important. Making memories unique is also important, hence, I want to help you re-live all the moments that you’d like to remember through my “Moments: Polaroid Series”. Please check the image for more details on my Valentine's Day commission offer.
Send me all your orders and queries at email@example.com or drop me a note here.
Every commission will help me reach my goals now that I am a full time freelancer. Sharing this commission info will help me big time too! Looking forward to working with some of you.
NOTE: Turnaround time is at max 4 days so if you place an order this week, then I can guarantee that you'll have your image ready by next week!
Interested for more Artist Interviews?Hey everyone!
As some of you may know, I did a series of Artist interviews during our Project Educate Week along with my C&C partner alexandrasalas. I interviewed Dreamwork's animation Arthur Fong, Sony Pictures Animation Sam Kallis, a famous Thai CG artist and illustrator Victorior and a Brazilian author who is working as a leader for various successful comic projects FelipeCagno.
All of the interviews gathered a great number of readers and I am happy that they were all well accepted by the DeviantART community. And it's definitely worth trying to do more so as we get to know more insights and various experiences from the people who are continuously making various creative fields alive.
So before anything else, I would like to ask a few questions:
Are you interested for more Artist/Writer interviews such as the 4 articles above?If yes, then
Your happiest moment recently?So I really wanted to test out the new Comments feature here on dA and I thought of, "Why not make it unique as well?"
So yeah, I want to know what are your happy moments recently? Did you meet a new friend or did you meet a friend from ages ago? Did your crush smile at you? Or did you go to the mountains and felt peace and calmness within you?
There are a lot of things that can make us happy. They can be grand moments but happiness is also found even in the simplest of times. What matters most is that you felt it and made you feel whole :')
go go go, let us know

With So Much Love IIHello everyone! I hope you are all doing well I would like to take this opportunity to share my favorite deviations from last year. I really intend to share this before December ended, but due to my vacation and stuffs, I was not able to make it but told myself that I must, in any way, find a way to share these amazing deviations that caught my attention throughout 2013.
This is my second year end feature and you can check the first one here and help me revisit all those golden feelings that I felt after seeing those feature pieces.
And to quote:
This collection is not just an ordinary collection for me. Do you know the feeling whenever you see something and you'll immediately have an indescribable feeling just by looking at that thing? It happens rarely on my part and that's why, I need a collection so I can collect and check them from time to time so I will remember the great feelings whenever I s

External Hard Drive problems: help neededHello!
Calling all geeks and all the techy guys out there :____:
I'll make this really short and quick. So the thing is, my hard drive is not responding. Though I can still see in the "Safely Remove" section on windows, my hard drive is not showing up on my Windows explorer. But when I checked the Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management, I saw this:
So the status of my HDD is now UNALLOCATED and I really don't want to repartition this as I will definitely lose all my files. I was able to still use this yesterday but after plugging it in in a Macbook Pro, i cannot access it anymore. We were able to do this without any problems before so I didn't have any "fear" of plugging it in a MAC laptop again. IDK if that was the reason, but it just happened that it was the case, so I am telling this as it might help us see the possibilities.
So my question i
20 truths, 5 lies game (WIN POINTS!) -Last dayEDIT: TODAY'S THE LAST DAY
mirz-alt posted this on twitter and I thought that this is fun
So I still have some spare points here so I thought of having this as a contest as well. XD This is just for fun!
I will be posting 25 facts about me. But there's a catch. Only 20 things are the real "facts". Meaning, 5 out of 25 are lies.Figure out which among the 25 items are the lies. Just give me the numbers in the comments section.Deviants who will enumerate 5 lies in the comments below will be automatically included in the raffle. Answers with less than or more than 5 items will be disqualifiedOnly 1 comment per person. However, you can talk to other players by replying to their comments Once your guess is posted, I'll give you a number for the raffle.Have fun!
In the event that a person can guess all the lies correctly, he/she will win 200 points (only one person can win this)!

The photo does not do justice.
How many times you have read or typed yourself such notes in artist’s comments, under traditional artworks?

- Only common and uncommon traits are allowed
- You may post as many entries as you'd like but you can only win with one of your entries
- Entries must be submitted to the MYO Eyapi Contest folder in this group
- Entries can be digital or traditional

- The Eyapi can be in any color
- Eyapis can have any hairstyle! c:
- The fur on their tails can have any length. So a common short tail can have fur that goes down to the ground

BestestFriendContest Group ENTIRES
Bestest Friend (DreamingAutumn) and I are back with another contest!
This contest's theme is 'Fairy Tale'! What does that mean? Well, why don't you just ruminate, whilst I illuminate the possibilities...
Simply put, you write something related to "fairy tale", that could be ANYTHING. Want to write your own fairy tale? Go for it! Want to modernize or rewrite the ending for an existing tale, do it! You can even incorporate another element into it. Maybe it's a cross between Sci-Fi and Fantasy or a Mystery and Fantasy tale! Or do some combination, how about a Snow White Sci-Fi where she is the one kissing the prince awake? The possibilities are endle
