Contest Extensions and Disappointing Hiatus

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 11, 2014, 5:51 PM


So I've decided to extend the deadlines of my two contests with good reason. My laptop just broke after three years of not functioning very well in the first place. Never trust an Acer.
Anyway, my Draw My OC contest is to be extended until June 9th at 7:00pm CST. If there are less than 5 entries, there will either be another extension or, most likely, the one winner will receive $5usd or 500 points.
My Design Me an OC contest is to be extended until June 20th. June 15th!!!! I'll be traveling starting June 18th and didn't realize that I made the deadline fall in between the days I'll be gone. That wouldn't have been good. ; v ;  Anyway, I'll probably give out all 3 prizes and possibly some honorary mentions. 

That's all I have to say. Sorry if my spelling or grammar is really gross; both deviantART mobile sites are atrocious because of this arbitrary frickin' Sta.sh Writer toolbar.


Features




It's 4 am and I feel the need to do a faq journal for future reference. ( This is full of stuff that I've been asked at least once. ) Here goes.


crazyDoggy's FAQ



Hi! What exactly do you prefer to be called?

Yo! Call me whatever you'd like. Nicknames are great. The ones I get most often are Julia, Jay, Doggy, crazy, Falcon, Fal, and Senpai. 'Hey, you, loser' also works, but that's more of a derogatory  thing to say.

Can we communicate in a language other than English?

English is my strongest language, and I don't know any other languages fluently. I can, however, speak with you in less depth with Spanish, Italian, French, Croatian, and Korean. (And hopefully more to come.)

What do you do besides draw and lurk online?

Whoa, good question. I play instruments, learn languages, and sometimes go places. I think that's basically it.

Where does your username originate from?

It's my persona's name. No, I'm not one of those people that goes around screaming "I'm a doggie! Wow! I love dogs and dogs love me and I have fangs and a collar and I'm insane 4 dogz!!1" Ahaha, actually, this began in seventh grade when my best friend funCatty and I decided that we wanted to be a singer/artist duo. We picked the animal that best suited our personality/likes, added the Y, then added an adjective in front of the animal.  And with that, our personas were born!

How old are you?

My birthday falls on July 29th, 1999.

When did you start drawing?

I started drawing from the time I could pick up something that could leave a mark on a wall. I did horrible stick figure drawings, moved to Sonic the Hedgehog art - all day every day for years - entered an anime phase, then ended up in a semi-realism and abstract phase. The end of my Sonic phase marked the start of my first digital art drawings. That was in ... around 2010. Mouse, laptop track pad, and Adobe Photoshop 7. I guess that was the final start.

What tools and things do you use to draw traditionally?

  • Cheap 0.5 mechanical pencils. Everywhere. ♥
  • Kneaded eraser ♥
  • Set of about 12 graphite pencils
  • Copic Multiliners of various sizes
  • Copic Sketch Markers -- about 70 of them.
  • White gel pens
  • Prismacolor pencils and markers
  • Cheap sets of watercolors
  • Sketchbooks (50+ pound paper)


Which digital programs do you use to create your art?

  • Paint Tool SAI
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Adobe Imageready


What type of tablet do you have?

I currently use a Wacom Intuos 5 Medium. If I ever take my art to a professional level, I'll probably get a Cintiq at some point.

Do you have any tips for first-time tablet users planning to purchase a tablet? How is your tablet holding up?

I know this is something said often, but I'll say it again here: start with something small. A Wacom Bamboo is nice for beginners or those who want something inexpensive and simple. I also personally prefer tablets with larger pen-touch dimensions because it feels more efficient. I have a steadier hand that way. It does vary by person, though.

My Intuos has been ... needy of maintenance. Constantly. It was a pain to deal with at first, but I'm slowly getting used to it. When I first got it, I was always uninstalling and re-installing the drivers because they didn't want to work. A year after I got the tablet, the pen broke. It costed 60 dollars to replace. Always take care of your pen!! Around January, my tablet's port broke, so my father ordered a wi-fi pack. No more cords, but I have to charge the battery in a portable charger for camera batteries every 5 to 6 hours of use (in substitution of using a cord to charge the battery, which isn't an option for me.) Not fun. The tablet's performance itself is really high-quality, though.

Building on that, do you have any tips for beginning artists?

I think I'm going to edit this tomorrow with drawings from different intervals in my life. You will improve. Don't give me any of that 'I will always suck at drawing' stuff. That's a lie and you will stop improving when you stop trying.
You won't get better overnight. I mean, you can, but you won't go from awful to amazing overnight. Trial-and-error is a big part of drawing, too. You learn from your mistakes, so don't shoot for perfection when you draw. ( Which is tough for us perfectionists. )
Uhh ... don't copy other artists' styles. They can influence you and whatnot, but copying everything they do just to 'get better' won't help you improve.
Don't trace. Good God; same explanation as above.
Experiment! Move your pencil/stylus/pen differently. Splash on color in other ways. Try for a more unique concept. Be original, alright?

Why have you been so inactive?

On weekdays from late August to early June (excluding vacations and breaks), I'm at home from 5pm to 8:30am. During those fifteen-and-a-half hours, I need to do homework, attempt to eat, shower, sleep, wake up, then get ready for school. When you think about it, there's not so much free time in between. I spend about 70% of my weekend watching/learning stuff, reading, and drawing for a project in which I am a part of. I don't have so much time to draw for deviantART ( or myself ) anymore. Summer is the only time I'll be super active on here.

Do you do requests/art trades/collabs/commissions?

I only do requests if I say I'm doing requests. Which isn't very often. I don't have time for any of those, but I sometimes have my commissions open. I do trades with people at my general art level.

Can you donate me points or money for [insert event or cause]?

Most definitely not. Don't ask me for anything because that makes me not do it, haha. If I want to throw my money at somebody, I'll do it for my own reasons.

Can I add you on [insert site/app]?

Go ahead. If it's listed in the Contact Info box on my profile, then go for it.

Let's be friends!

It isn't a question, but I'm okay with making friends. Bring it on! Just please don't expect me to be 100% outgoing at first.




That's all I've got to say! If you have any more questions to ask me, then go ahead and ask. For now, I'm going to go enjoy the rest of my  hour and a half of alone time.

Two contests at once - I hope I can handle these!
Anyway, the point of this contest is to design me some OCs! I've really been in an art block and longing for some new designs lately, so why not? There will be 3 winners ( maybe 5? )- the 3 winning characters will belong to me. Everyone else who participated ( EXCLUDING the winners ) may do whatever they want with their entry after the contest ends ( keep it/sell it/etc ). I may also give out honorable mention prizes if there are an excessive amount of entries. ♥
( Also, if you're not into designing, feel free to join my other contest!!: crazydoggy.deviantart.com/jour… )

So -- the things I like in designs!! ( please do not feel obliged to mix all of these together!!! That would look pretty odd xD you can choose a few things from the list and get creative! ):
- Males ( my female OCs are either really punk rock or stylish so you can go for a female entry too! )
- Kemonomimi
- Masks ( gas masks or surgeon-type masks, any and all )
- Sweaters ( wow )
- Scarves
- Boots/high-top sneakers
- Collars
- Studs
- Belts
- Chains
- Baggy clothes
- Flower crowns/flowers in general
- Tattoos/markings
- Inverted crosses
- Indie/Tribal-print stuff/Hipster
- Glasses
- Hackneyed/cliche color palettes ( that's not a bad thing ok )
- Gold/green palette; white/blue/black palette, white/pink/blue palette, blue/brown palette, white/pink/black palette, etc!!!
- Multicolor/highlighted hair
- Long hair/non-plain hairstyle ( ponytail, braids, etc )
- Heterochromia
- Mismatched clothes ( sleeves are different color, socks are different color/type/length, shoes are different color/type )
- RPG-based/Adventure/Fantasy/Armor/weapons!!! ( Swords and knives and scythes are the key to my heart )
- Manry semes OR bby shota ukes ( anything basically )
|| Colors I love: White, olive green, neon green, blues, black

If you're still lost, here are some adopts that I fell in love with : doggy-adopts.deviantart.com/fa…

If I deleted a commish ( for you ) or anything of importance that you'd like to view again, just tell me. If I can find it, I'll put it on my Sta.sh for you.

//IMPORTANT// Does anyone live in London?

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 29, 2013, 3:21 AM



crazyDoggy's Journal




Haha it isn't urgent, but it is indeed important to me for an upcoming trip.

If you don't live in London, but have traveled there, I'm not sure if you'll be as helpful for the questions I have to ask. I need someone who knows the local stores and can tell me about the weather during a certain month, appropriate clothing, electronics, etc.

So yeah - does anyone here live in London? //w//
Thanks!! ♥

p.p.s. - sorry for my inactivity!! my tablet's cord port - i'm assuming - broke a few days ago and I've been awaiting the arrival of a wireless pack for it

IM ALSO SORRY FOR THE GLITCHY CSS
this is my makeshift CSS until I get my tablet back. I'm gonna change the html and add some pictures and journal dolls~


Shameless Artist Feature ( #3 )

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 1, 2013, 10:42 AM


Featuring more under-appreciated artists. \o/ These still happen, I just got really lazy/busy and couldn't for the last few months. I used to call these bi-weekly, then I changed it to bi-monthly. WHY DID NOBODY POINT OUT THAT TYPO. makin me look like more of an idiot than I am. uwu
Also, don't bother to write "Doggy, I'm still not featured?" "doggy why arent i featured yet? you said you would." "Doggy, do you not like my art? Is that why I'm not featured yet?" I have over 60 names on my list of deviants to feature and I pick from the list at RANDOM. Hang in there, I'll get to you soon enough. uvu

Anyways, I don't have time to write a super-detailed description about the artists this time, but their art itself should be enough, right? Here we go ~ :

:star:#1:star:
:icondawn181:dawn181
<da:thumb id="345480817"/>
<da:thumb id="342539184"/>
<da:thumb id="337634283"/>
Dawn181 is a great writer, and she has some incredibly unique pieces in her gallery. If you're into literature, I suggest you check her out!



:star:#2:star:
COM Emmmy by Lirip

Euro by Lirip

Not so secret by Lirip
Look how cute that coloring is! And I love the shading as well.~ Lirip has great vibrant coloring and a huge gallery for you to admire, so go right ahead!

THANK YOU! by puchiko01

I fell in love with Puchiko's art style immediately. The textures she uses in some of her more detailed work are great as well! Please go support her lovely art.



:star:#4:star:
Luhan smile by ocecen
Miki star by ocecen
SULLI by ocecen
Ocecen is an amazing digital painter. She has a wide variety of traditional and digital art in her gallery, and some great cosplay as well!



:star:#5:star:
light up the dark by mioree
chieri by mioree
Akito by mioree
I love mioree's choice in color! Her style is great - both chibi and normal. She has tons more art to look at, so go give her some support!

Well guys, that's it! Another five features done! I hope these help you find more artists that you enjoy!
If you have any suggestions for artists that should be featured, please do comment below ( yes folks, you may also nominate yourself! ) I pick them randomly, and the list contains about 60+ deviants, so don't expect a feature right away!
Anywho, I'd like to thank BlackHairGreenEyes, who helps me pick some needy artists for the list. She is a big help!

If that wasn't enough, here are more features! Yay! :3c

I have not seen Danny Phantom artwork in ages, so I loved my trip through Kihana's gallery, heheh. She's a great artist who, again, uses different styles often. She has also improved greatly in her time on deviantArt, and it would be nice if you gave her a visit. :3

Sonikku And Emmy~! by serathehedgehog
Where am i.. by serathehedgehog
Shiny Star.. by serathehedgehog
Aah, another trip into fanart I love. Serathehedgehog is an aspiring artist who is working on improving her art piece by piece. Her coloring skills have definitely progressed! Her work has quite a few crossovers, so if that's something you enjoy, then go see some of her art for yourself!

Collab with K1RAR1N by Alligates
The Amnesia Bros by Alligates
Arya by Alligates
Alligates's gallery is adorable. She draws cute chibis and fanart, and has a unique style of coloring. I love her art, but she has a small amount of fans and followers, and I think that should change! Please go check out her gallery - you'll become a fan of her art too, I promise!

D.Gray-man - Lavi by Raspcherry
Soi Fon - The Hornet by Raspcherry
Of Infinity by Raspcherry
Goodness gracious, I'm jealous of Raspcherry's work!! ; - ; It is very detailed and the combination of lighting, shadows, and color make it all the better! Her style is very unique, and I wish I could see more art like this around deviantArt~. She has very few watchers, but I don't see how! I love her art and so will you!

Well guys, that's it! Another five features done! I hope these help you find more artists that you enjoy!
If you have any suggestions for artists that should be featured, please do comment below ( yes folks, you may also nominate yourself! ) I pick them randomly, and the list contains about 40 - 50 deviants, so don't expect a feature right away!
Anywho, I'd like to thank BlackHairGreenEyes, who helps me pick some needy artists for the list. She is a big help!

:heart:Also, my regular journal features~:heart:

Bi-Monthly Artist Feature #1!!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 1, 2013, 9:15 PM






Yep, I've figured out what I'm doing with this idea! I'm just going to keep this intro short and sweet, though. c: These journals will be made twice a month and will feature 3 pieces of artwork and a short paragraph of praise from me for 5 'under-appreciated' deviantARTists. These artists have been overlooked as far as their work and artistic talent goes, and this feature is just to help them out! Hopefully, they'll receive a few extra watchers, faves, fans, et cetera. ^.^
If they wish for their names and art to be taken out of this journal, they may just say so and I will remove their feature.

So let's get down to it!! I've randomly selected the first five deviants from my list to get featured! Here they are, folks! :heart:


:star:#1:star:
:iconthedeerknight:TheDeerKnight
:bigthumb337094453::bigthumb337687078::bigthumb361811979:
K1FU is a deviant with lots of potential, but doesn't receive as much love for her art as she should. From the first piece of work in her gallery to the most recent, there has been quite a bit of progress, which shows very clearly. Her art is very cute and colorful, and it would be great if you could stop by her page and show her some love!


:star:#2:star:
:iconninjendo:Ninjendo
:bigthumb99096140:Hero of Time by NinjendoUnbreakable Bond by Ninjendo
Ninjendo has been a member of the deviantART community for four years and has some loyal fans, but it seems like she could use more support for her art. Many different colors are implemented into her art, and her style of drawing is very detailed. I love her drawings, so please check her out!


:star:#3:star:
:iconsabincix:Sabincix
Toshiro  Hitsuguya by SabincixIzaya Orihara by SabincixBeyond Birthday by Sabincix
Sabincix is a great fanartist! She's always drawing different characters and trying new things, which helps her improve on her drawing technique. She has come a long way since joining the site, and I hope that some of you can give her love and support, and help her improve even more.


:star:#4:star:
:iconvemorichi:vemorichi
dat Hoodie by vemorichiI said hey, girl with one eye by vemorichiHappy Birthday 'lil sis! by vemorichi
Vemorichi has an amazing gallery! It's crazy how she doesn't have many watchers. Each piece of her art is unique, and the lineart and coloring give it a very gentle effect. Her sketches are also breathtaking; they are very simple, but still have a great impact. Please check out her art!


:star:#5:star:
:iconjinxrider:jinxrider
Island Girl by jinxriderReconnect With Me? by jinxriderAlice Monroe by jinxrider
Jinxrider is a very skilled deviant! After scrolling through her gallery, I realized that she had the quickest overall improvement in her work, and it's crazy that she has so few watchers. I love her art I and think that she deserves more attention for her hard work!


Well, that's it everybody!! What did you think? Are these artists great, or what? :'D I would appreciate it if you could stop by their pages, and if you see anything you like, I would be more than happy if you could give them a watch, some faves, and maybe a few constructive comments. Thank you all so very much for your time and your feedback on my poll. I will definitely get around to more of those features soon!! ( April 14th, to be exact! ) So let me know what you guys thought of this!

:heart:Also, here are my regular journal features~::heart:

*Last updated March 15th, 2014, yo!*

WILL OPEN ON APRIL 1, ADDING EXAMPLES AND FINISHING COMMISSIONS

Updating prices hahaha ( sorry for the example shortage )
I AM working on everything I owe as we speak, if you haven't noticed!!! Also working on adding examples, here.~ Thank you for being extremely patient! ♥

Now my list of things I need money for consists of helping my dad out with paying for my $3k trip to England, hospital bills, other bills, paying back people, and legit clothes for school hhhh.
And after all that, adoptables and commissions. Because they actually do make me happy when I need it |D But that's after everything else.

V Long story about the hospital bills etc V
I need the money .. well, not me, but my family really does.
A few months ago, my brother was in pain, so my mom took him to the hospital. The doctors checked his vitals and gave him a shot to see if it would help the pain go away. They said that they didn't really see anything wrong, just a sprained muscle or something. Anyway, they misdiagnosed him big time, and all of that crap added up to around 3,000 dollars. Which my mom hasn't paid yet because she doesn't make enough pay that amount at once.
So after that, my mom took my brother to the doctor's office. It was 75 dollars the first visit and he got a sonogram and some blood taken. And that added up to about 400 dollars. And then the second time they went to see the results, it cost 85 dollars. Yeah. Ridiculous. So they gave him medicine and the pain just disappeared one day, so he's all okay now.

Fast forward. Only a portion of the bill from our doctor has been paid, and my dad refuses to pay for anything from the hospital bill because he told my mom not go to the emergency room in the first place. That still doesn't help the fact that my mom can't pay for any of that.


So here I am, asking if anyone can help me out? I really need the commission money, and I want to know if anyone can help.
If you decide to commission me, I'll just say in advance thank you so so very much - every little bit helps. :heart:
