Here's what the wearers of the fluffy white wigs are looking for
y'know the judges panel XD

Creativity
Your entries really need to blown out of the water as far as fantasy goes. I am not speaking about how well it's drawn, manip'd ect... I'm talking about the cleverness of what we're viewing or reading, there's gotta be heart in that art.

Originality
You *must* have new spins on the old, or have some sense of your own "genre" so to speak. I don't want to see Peter Pan fanart for instance.

Craftsmanship
This is about how the work is presented. If the image is obviously a bad scan,smudged beyond what is necessary, or has camera flash glare, it's possible it won't be a winner.

Rain. Every day for the past three hundred years it has been raining. The story of why has changed so many times, no one even cares to ask any longer. Not even the most curious of children. Nanalie was one of them. Her bright blue eyes were full of curiosity during the day, but, in the morning, her raven-colored black hair being the mess that it was would make some random passerby think otherwise. Nanalie was a small girl. A beautiful girl. Although she didn't really see what was that beautiful about her. The girl woke slowly to the gentle patter of rain on the windows outside. "I don't want to go to school..." She mumbled to herself, like she did every morning.
Like all children she tried to be as slow as she could, slowly getting out of her small bed, as if she was asleep for a thousand years and just woke up. She walked over to the large window in her room, she loved the noise the rain made when it hit the window. She was now wearing a black skirt, a green tank top and knee

Twenty Random Tracks

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 27, 2009, 9:27 AM
1: Put your iPod/ mp3 on Shuffle.
2: Write down the first lines from the first twenty songs.
3: Post it in your journal as one song.
4: Tag somebody! (Anyone who cares to do it, he is tagged. ;P)
Here it goes:

As he came into the window,it was the sound of a crescendo.
Wherever I go, whatever I do, my heart is crying out for you.
All the, small things ,true care, truth brings.
Are you listening Javelina?
I love you, but I gotta stay true,
In this farewell, there's no blood ,there's no alibi.
So if you're lonely, you know I'm here waiting for you...
I've got emotion drippin' out my pores and I thought I'd letcha know.
She said, "don't-don't let it go to your head."
Is it still me that makes you sweat?
Five-hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes, Five-hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear...
I'm doing this tonight, you're probably gonna start a fight.
Closed off from love, I didn’t need the pain.
What's up Dallas, what's up?
Step one you say, "we need to talk,"
I’m holding on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground...
I tried to be perfect, but nothin' was worth it,
Don't know what I'm doin' back in the studio.
Pullin' out my big black book,
Life's just a pace-car on death ,only less diligent.


Sounds painfully emo don't it :XD:
aw well, at least it makes a bit of sense :giggle:

Have an amazing Christmas everybody! Remember the real meaning of Christmas! It's the birth of the Christ, Jesus! He's the reason for the season :la: We give and get presents because God gave us His son ^ ^ Emmanuel...God with us.

Isaiah 9:6
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah :14
Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Emmanuel.
Luke 2:11
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.

I'm opening up for commissions! And yes, you can get one for as low as $3 (USD). This is my first time opening up commissions, but I think I have a good system here that'll benefit us both =D I ask that you please read all of my terms, meaning this entire article, to avoid any potential issues should you decide to commish me =)


Now onto the serious part of this:

I am not currently in a posistion to sell physical artwork and ship it to you. Meaning--

   
ALL WORK COMMISSIONED WILL EITHER BE E-MAILED TO YOU OR, I WILL MAKE IT AVAILABLE FOR PRINT THROUGH deviantART.I ALSO RESERVE THE RIGHT TO DISPLAY COMMISSIONED WORK IN MY GALLERY UNLESS COPYRIGHTS ARE INVOLVED.
</b>

Here is what I WILL draw (or digitally paint):

:bulletred: Humans- any size, shape, age, or color.
:bulletred: Portraits- bust, profile, or neck up.
:bulletred: Couples or small groups.
:bulletred: Original Characters.

    all of these can be with or without simple backgrounds.

And here is what I WILL NOT draw or digitally paint:

:bulletred: Blood or gore
:bulletred: Landscapes
:bulletred: Animals
:bulletred: Pornography, Hentai, Yuri, or Yaoi (nothing above pg-13)
:bulletred: Anything having to do with hate
:bulletred: Anything having to do with the occult
:bulletred: Complicated backgrounds
:bulletred: Political Allegory
:bulletred: Caricatures
:bulletred: Full Nudes

I would do life drawing, but I have been asked in the past as requests and it is better for us both if I don't have to question your motives for wanting a rather suggestive drawing.

Now that the rules are out of the way, let's move on to the question of the hour...TA DA! Prices! I understand that many of you are broke college students as myself, so I'm making the prices as reasonable as possible =)

PRICING

    *ALL PAYMENTS MUST BE SENT VIA PAYPAL*THIS IS NON NEGOTIABLE*
my e-mail address is on my page in the info section


        :bulletred:All black and white drawings, complicated or not, are a flat rate of $3 (USD)

        :bulletred:All colored drawings begin at $3, but will be no more than $6 (USD) after negotiations.

        :bulletred:All digital paintings begin at $7 (USD), depending on the time and complexity of the piece, the final price will determined upon my discretion but will not exceed $15 (USD).
</blockquote>



    That being said, I'm going to take the "show me the money" policy. You may request your commission, but I will not begin drawing until I am paid. This is for my own protection. If there is any issue after the money is sent, but before the piece is completed, a refund can be negotiated.

    To ensure that the work you are paying for is everything you hope it to be, I can send WIPs through e-mail or by note from my scraps folder.

    Furthermore, to commission me, you must shoot me a note not an e-mail. I do not respond to e-mails from random people. Clearly state what your wishes are in your note and we will discuss. If notes are not your style of communication, a SKYPE session can be arranged.

    I am willing to accept three commissions at a time. If there is going to be a delay or issue with your piece, I will contact you immediately.

:iconomghaiplz:Yes, you heard...err...read correctly folks, I'm opening up for commissions! And yes, you can get one for as low as $3 (USD). This is my first time opening up commissions, but I think I have a good system here that'll benefit us both =D I ask that you please read all of my terms, meaning this entire article, to avoid any potential issues should you decide to commish me =)


Now onto the serious part of this:

I am not currently in a posistion to sell physical artwork and ship it to you. Meaning--
ALL WORK COMMISSIONED WILL EITHER BE E-MAILED TO YOU OR, I WILL MAKE IT AVAILABLE FOR PRINT THROUGH deviantART.I ALSO RESERVE THE RIGHT TO DISPLAY COMMISSIONED WORK IN MY GALLERY UNLESS COPYRIGHTS ARE INVOLVED.
</blockquote></sub>

Here is what I WILL draw (or digitally paint):

:bulletred: Humans- any size, shape, age, or color.
:bulletred: Portraits- bust, profile, or neck up.
:bulletred: Couples or small groups.
:bulletred: Original Characters.
all of these can be with or without simple backgrounds.

digital painting examples:Stormy Leonhart by XadreaFairest by XadreaBenji Martyrer by XadreaI know you well enough... by Xadrea

And here is what I WILL NOT draw or digitally paint:

:bulletred: Blood or gore
:bulletred: Landscapes
:bulletred: Animals
:bulletred: Pornography, Hentai, Yuri, or Yaoi (nothing above pg-13)
:bulletred: Anything having to do with hate
:bulletred: Anything having to do with the occult
:bulletred: Complicated backgrounds
:bulletred: Political Allegory
:bulletred: Caricatures
:bulletred: Full Nudes

I would do life drawing, but I have been asked in the past as requests and it is better for us both if I don't have to question your motives for wanting a rather suggestive drawing.


    Now that the rules are out of the way, let's move on to the question of the hour...TA DA! Prices! I understand that many of you are broke college students as myself, so I'm making the prices as reasonable as possible =)

PRICING
*ALL PAYMENTS MUST BE SENT VIA PAYPAL*THIS IS NON NEGOTIABLE*my e-mail address is on my page in the info section

:bulletred:All black and white drawings, complicated or not, are a flat rate of $3 (USD)

:bulletred:All colored drawings begin at $3, but will be no more than $6 (USD) after negotiations.

:bulletred:All digital paintings begin at $7 (USD), depending on the time and complexity of the piece, the final price will determined upon my discretion but will not exceed $15 (USD).
</sub>

That being said, I'm going to take the "show me the money" policy. You may request your commission, but I will not begin drawing until I am paid. This is for my own protection. If there is any issue after the money is sent, but before the piece is completed, a refund can be negotiated.

To ensure that the work you are paying for is everything you hope it to be, I can send WIPs through e-mail or by note from my scraps folder.

Furthermore, to commission me, you must shoot me a note not an e-mail. I do not respond to e-mails from random people. Clearly state what your wishes are in your note and we will discuss. If notes are not your style of communication, a SKYPE session can be arranged.

I am willing to accept three commissions at a time. If there is going to be a delay or issue with your piece, I will contact you immediately.

=D Okay, that's my offer to you fellow deviants. I hope to hear from you soon :wave:

Commissions:what I will do,what I wont and details

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 12, 2009, 7:55 AM
Well, I've been giving this idea serious thought for the last few months and I've come to a pretty good decision... I'm gonna open up for commissions! I have a little more than a month til school starts up again and my painting teacher that artistically we all do a little more to push ourselves more in the art world by getting your name out there =D

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 11, 2009, 5:55 AM
I AM OFFICIALLY DONE WITH FALL SEMESTER 2009!!!!!!!!:iconcheerplz::woohoo::w00t::party::boogie::iconlaplz::XD:

approximatley 14 days till christmas kiddles :excited: and i'm almost totally done with all my shopping =D
if u dont have any ideas of where to get gifts i'd say etsy.com is one of the best sites ever to get gifts of all kind, and the awesome thing is all of the items up for sale are created by artisans (and quite a few deviants have etsy shops as well :meow:) all payments are thru paypal so its totally secure and most items ship fairly quickly, plus u can communicate directly with the seller =D i luffffffs it ^ ^
the last thing on my christmas list for my mom is a beautiful silk chinese evening dress i found on ebay and the awesome thing is its on sale for 10 bucks free shipping and the seller has 94% positive reviews!:la: i just need to make sure it'll get here before jolly ole st. nick hops down the chimney (well, i dont have a chimney...but u catch my drift right :XD:)

soooo yesh:bucktooth:

oh and another thing, ive been talking to my mom and teachers and schtuff and they think i should start getting commissioned for my work, which is pretty flattering if i must say so mahself :blush:
so i was thinking of starting off small by beginning here on DA, that way i can figure out what a person would be willing to pay for a drawing or digital painting. i would like to eventually be able to sell my paintings, but i wouldnt be able to sell them for less than 200$ and people nowadays are insanely cheap, plus i want them to have a good home to go to :XD: so tell me watcha guys think...otherwise i'll put up a poll and force it out of yoo :evillaugh:
