July's Anime Fanart Contest- World of 3 col
      Welcome to July's animé fanart contest:
Please read through all the rules before submitting
*** Subject for this month is:
          World of 3 colors
*** Description:
Welcome to July's fanart contest.  For this month's contest, the subject/theme is "World of 3 colors"  In a world with only one color, nothing can really be distinguished.  In a world of two colors, things can be told apart from each other ... but of course we know that nothing is just as simple as just one color or the other.  So logically I suppose that calls for a world of 3 colors.  :)
     So for this month's contest, you only get to use 3 colors of your choice (and by 3 colors, that really means only 3 solid colors.  No shading or blending of the colors.)  You can draw anything from your favorite an

Miss and Mister DeviantART 2009 (OC Contest!)
Get ready for...:
Miss DeviantART 2009!!!!
First of all, let's talk a little about the Miss DeviantART 2008 contest:
The first edition of this contest was a success! Over 100 contestants, over 200 entries, several prizes and even mini-contests that followed it: Miss Congeniality and some other minor competitions that were included (all using the same entries).
In this link you can see the entries for Miss DA 2008:
The first place was gotten by Carishrine, and the prize was a coloured full-body illustration with a background of the winning character, Ly.

The winner for Miss Congeniality was DARTH-KANETAKER, and the prize was a half-body coloured illustration (with BG) of his character Seyka.

However, this time, in order to appeal to a larger audience, some of the rules were altered - for instance, it won't be just female OCs allowed. Now there will be a Miss and Mister DA cont

United States
First of all, hope you're having a good summer! :)

I've been on dA with this account off and on for over four years. It's been fun and I'm very thankful for all of you who have commissioned me, favorited pieces, and watched my work, but I feel that I've gotten into a rut and it's been hard to find inspiration and new direction in the last year or so (as you can tell by my utter lack of work).

So I'm doing a bit of a creativity reboot and starting from scratch with a new account: :iconiheartsendai:, with the goal being to just have fun with my art and creative pursuits and try out any old thing I want to. Right now you're probably going to mostly see costumes, my attempts to improve at digital art, and perhaps a random piece of Japanese calligraphy here and there. I'll probably also take along to the new account my favorite pieces from this one as reminders of what I'm aiming for, and leave this one up as a morgue file of sorts.

(If you'd like to commission me, for art or calligraphy, based on what you see here at "the-four-treasures" please drop me a note at the new account. I will no longer be checking notes or feedback for this one.)

Thanks again for four awesome years and hope to see you at the new account! :D

Hey Christy! It's been a while since I've seen you on here! How have you been? (:

Hey there! Well, I'm forgetful as ever (sorry it took so long for me to write back. ^_^;) Still in Houston, though, getting certified to be a publich school teacher, so write me if you and your family ever want to get together for lunch. What have you been up to? :)
Yokai-Kari Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
No problem! (:
Public school teacher? Good luck LOL. I could never do something like that. I have no patience for disrespectful children haha!

Hmm, nothing much! I'll be a senior when school starts again, so I'm getting ready for that. Other than that, just being lazy and enjoying summer haha! (:
Yeah, I will! ^_^ We should do something soon~ It'd be nice to see you again ^^
the-four-treasures Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2010
lol Thanks for the encouragement. ;)

Wow, you're a senior? Sweet! Well, enjoy your summer while you've got it.

Tell you what, do you and your family like dim sum? There's a really good place down in Bellaire I just went to that would be fun to go back to again. Note me if you're interested and we can sort the details out?
