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

Are you here in the Philippines who invited some friends and helped repacked goods? Share it!Do you want to say something about climate change and how we can minimize these tragic experiences?

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

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!

Octopus Accessories - art thieveshttp://www.octopus-store.ro/
this is their store. They are Octopus Acessories
This is their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OctopusAccessories
They had my drawings printed and were selling necklaces with them. They also lied to me that they did not steal them and took them from from some deviant who supposedly stole them first.
They sent me this link to this deviant :iconxyqueen: but the drawings that belong to me were submitted 12 hours ago. So obviously this couldn't be true since Nijikon was over 12 hours ago, and they had them for sale since 3 days ago.
This girl is so shameless, she lied to my face! She made me feel bad about calling her out and "making a scene" in front of her booth. OMG! And i believed her, i could have had her kicked out of the convention on the spot! She made me apologize for making a scene in front of her booth So she stole my art, and i was the one who apologized.
THAT. IS. WRONG.
Wow, if thievery was a game, she would be the final boss

Honey, We're Getting a MonsterfancyQUACKS
A really hungry one...
Naughty monsters are running rampant in the city again - you know the kind! They're short, noisy and make constant mischief on our doorsteps; begging for candy despite buying perfectly good pumpkins the same day. What's their dastardly plan for all that food? They're up to no good and must be stopped.
We should feed the trick-or-treaters - to hungry, real monsters! There's a critter-shaped hole to this plan: we don't actually have any real monsters. But all we need are your designs to put into my Monster Making Machine to release them into the suburbs! Trick-or-treaters - gobbled up for good!
How does this work? I'm glad you asked. The "Monster Maker 2000" is my old, modified microwave and this invention will create flesh-and-blood monsters from designs. A little energy combined with your designs will help bring our glorious abomination to life.
Create & Submit
As Professor Pudds of Monsterology, I'm very busy and need super tummy-rumbling monster
Monthly Theme FANTASY vote and win points:iconthefavouriteshowcase:
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge at TheFavouriteShowcase: instead of using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th wins 25 .
These prizes can be updated for the next themes with the help of our friends:
:iconalex-blaszczynski: is giving 100 points for every
Do you/a friend Need Exposure for Adoptables? I've recently found people who have made these really nice adoptables, at least artistically I think they're really well done. And then it pains me to see when very few people bid on them, and this amazing creation can only sell for like, $5 or something.
Now I've never tried adoptables, and I'm not sure I completely understand how they work, but what I do know is that it seems artists who do them are really at the mercy of how much exposure they get. In that way, it's much like everything else; if you don't have the numbers, really great work goes unnoticed and sells for a handful of jelly beans.
So I'm going to do a journal that features Adoptables.
Do you have, or know someone who is selling *nice quality* adoptables but really needs exposure on them? Leave a thumbnail or link in this journal, and maybe I'll choose them for my feature. I can't showcase them all, but I'd certainly like to try and get a few out there.
The world gets harder for artists all the time
1,500,000 KiribanI don't ever do Kiribans but I'm doing an exception this time.
First person to take a screen cap of my profile at 1,500,000 pageviews and sent it to me in a NOTE will get a 50x50 pixel icon + 1000
Screen cap must be uploaded to STA.SH (or to your gallery, if you prefer)
Of course screen cap must be legit. If I suspect you cheating, don't expect to get anything :/
~Pixel Commissions CLOSED!~Hey guys!!~♥ Thank you so very much for commissioning me! I have a very full work list and I have raised enough for a premium membership for my secondary account!!
My next opening with sales will probably be around Thanksgiving~ Though, by then, I would have my other account up and running ;; v ;; I look forward to starting commissions there in the future!
Hey guys!~ Long time without update XD
I'm just about set to make the secondary account, HOWEVER, I'd like to start the account off with premium membership to have a professional and welcoming kick-start
With a steady-paced scheduel of mine, I would like to open pixel commissions only to raise enough for the premium membership. My goal is $30USD because deviantART no longer offers 3-month prepaid premium membership. :iconshameplz:
♥ Paypal preferred, but points are definitley welcome!~
