A Sip of Summer - Contest results!Hello everyone!A Sip of Summer - Contest results! by OC-Tea
We sincerely apologize for the delay in announcing the contest results. There have been some serious communication issues between the admins and votes not coming in. There will be a journal coming up very soon regarding changes within the group.
That being said, let's announce the results! We had 60 amazing entries, and we've enjoyed looking at them all and the stories behind each picture! Some of the votes were very close, and we really wish we could give every entry prizes. ;v;
This artist took a very unique approach with the theme. There's an incredible attention to detail, and the characters' personalities are very clear - overall, a wonderful piece!
Admittedly, this was my favorite of all the entries. The amount of effort put into the semi realism was great, and it was refreshing to see a summer night picture.

100+ Watchers! Thank you everyone!!!
Well I've reached 100+ watchers!
Thank you to everyone watching! I really appreciate all the support.
I thought it would be fun to hold a contest to celebrate!
So I had a few options in mind for this contest, but for now since it will probably be pretty small, I would like to save some of the other options for later.

'I Give Up'Okay you guys.'I Give Up' by MamaGizzy
We need to have a serious talk here.
I know that some of you aren't that confident in your work.
Sometimes, you see your friends doing theirs and then look at yours and you just feel like you're going to cry.
You think yours looks like shit compared to theirs (excuse the language).
You wonder why you even try to draw at all.
Well, I'm here to talk to you all and give you some guidance.
First off, there is something you guys really have to understand.
If art is your passion and you truly want to make something of it,
remember these things:
Friends Are Important
I did not gain my skills overnight.
It has taken me years to get where I am;
and I'm till looking for ways to improve everyday.
I have had my days where I felt my art wasn't that great.
Sometimes it would make me really angry when I saw I didn't get all these comments, or nobody faved my work.

Greetings, Everyone! (please let me know if you can read this ok. I may have to change the font.)
May is going to be a good month for me financially and I will be able to do prize art by that time. SO! I decided it's time for another art contest like I did in previous years. Can I hear a "Hurrah!? No? Ok.
However, this time, not all of my characters are going to be available because I have SOOO many and not all of them are fully developed characters.

ANYWAY, here are the characters of mine you can draw. You are MORE than welcome to ask questions and I will most definitely have answers. -Rules and prizes will be listed below them-

Tips on How To Get CommissionsWhen offering commissions, it can be very hard to get yourself noticed, what with the hundreds of thousands of other artists out there. People gripe about how pageviews aren’t important, but they are a helpful tool for you to see what kind of traffic flow you’re attracting. The more views you get, the more of a chance there is that one of those viewers is interested in commissioning you.
Gigonomics is a term I heard about a few months ago at an FLBA conference. After Googling it, many people seem to be using it in a slightly different way, but I was particularly intrigued by the way it was used by the keynote speaker, who was also a comedian. I can’t remember his name, but I probably will after I post this…
Basically he said that he takes any gig he can get, because you never know who could be in the audience. That was how he was asked to come to our conference. I realized that this can apply here on DeviantArt as well.
The way to get yourself noticed is to do a
