So, what would you like to see if we were to have another contest? Please leave suggestions, feedback and general ideas in the comments section below.
LOOKING FOR A NEW FOUNDER!I’m sorry I’ve been such a bad founder and neglecting our group I’ve decided to hand over the reins, if anyone is interested in running this group themselves, give a reason why you want to be founder, I won’t play favorites, but whoever I think can improve the group the most, gets the job, so don't hate me for my choice.
Is anyone interested in becoming a contributor?Well out group hasn’t been very lively but if anyone is interested in becoming a contributor and helping me make our group better. Anyone is welcome, just message here and I shall promote you immediately
So we are having a contest!This is the group’s first contest; I hope we get plenty of submissions. I’ve had many ideas and given some suggestions on rules for this contest, like word play, a theme, and a word limit. Those all sound like good ideas and I will keep those in mind for later contest, for the first one I will just say: go nuts. Make what you want to make for this first contest; the theme can be anything you want, have as many words in it as you want, there are only a few rules.
It must be a short story
It must be in a text format
It can have mature content but nothing over 18
The contest will close one mouth from now on June 8th, if anyone feels they need more time it can and will be extended.
I want you to be as creative as you can for this contest but if your fanfic is all about and OC character then at least one real character form the Simpson’s has to be in there for at least half of the time. (or else it’s not really a Simpson
Contest?Is it just me or is this group dying before it even gets off the ground?
I think maybe we can spark things up with a contest. I’m thinking we have a suggested theme and the winner gets to have their work put in the Featured folder (there’s not much I can do in the way of prizes for now).
But before we get too excited if I hold a contest would anybody actually participate?
No point in having a contest if nobody enters.
Anyway I please give me your feedback on what you guys think.
I'm still trying to work everything outI’m still working a few bugs in running a group if anybody who is used to running a group can offer me any advice about anything it would be very appreciated. P.S. this is a literature group. I know I am letting in basic fan art but I don’t want that to overshadow the writing part of this group so please feel free to submit your fan art but don’t submit your whole gallery a fan art. I want to keep the main focus on writing.
Updates! Please Read!So I’ve noticed there’s been some confusion with submitting to the right so I’m going to make some updates to try and make it easier on all of you. I’ve always liked groups were deviants are immediately accepted so of course it will stay that way. But here’s some folder updates.
Note: illustrations that are not comics but have a story attached to them will still go under short stories or multi chaptered stories depending on how long the story is.
THIS FOLDER STAYS EMPTY!
I’ve made it so you can’t submit to this folder. I have my own reasons for wanting to keep this folder empty. I’ve never run a Group before but in other groups that I’m a part of everyone submits to the featured folder, and all folders go unused, accepted for contributed. There are a few things I’m pretty much obsessive compulsive about, and this is one of them. So this stays empty and anything suggested to featured will be rejected, I
Thanksgiving Giveaway - 2000 Points!So, Christmas is around the corner and that means you'll get another package of underwear from your mom. But Thanksgiving (for us folks in the United States - sucks if you live some place in, like, France) means food and something about being thankful for what you have. This isn't about being thankful for what you have. This is pure, unadulterated, shove-people-out-of-your-way greed. I'm giving away 2000 points on the day before Black Friday. I'm sure you want them.

How to beat procrastination (part 1)As I said on a previous submission, I'm planning to make some tutorials on the upcoming December. Before that, however, I feel like I can help on another subject, which comes before even starting your drawing: Procrastination. I mean, procrastination towards your own drawings.
If you're not familiar with this word:
pro-cras-ti-na-tion |prəˌkrastəˈnāSHən, prō-|
"the action of delaying or postponing something."
Why am I talking about this?
Well, a year ago I used to be a professional procrastinator. I've imposed the 365 Days of Doodles challenge to myself for this particular reason.
While procrastination is to some degree a natural phenomenon and can’t be completely eradicated, you can use the following strategies to get in the habit of getting drawings done.
Mind that these are not golden rules or such, just strategies that work fo
CONTEST PORTRAITS - drawings and paintings *OPEN :icongroupsplz::iconsoulcollectors:
Hello to all Soul Collectors
I'm sponsoring a contest with the theme "Portraits" at the group Soulcollectors.
What do I want to see? Good art, amazing portraits, all kind of traditional or digital portraits.
But what are portraits?
"Portraits are works of art that record the likenesses of humans or animals that are alive or have been alive."
"Portrait is a likeness of a person, especially of the face, as a painting or a drawing."
- So, can you submit fantasy, an imaginary face?
- So, can you submit a drawing of a body in which we can not see the head?
- And can you submit a full body drawing?

Why you not doctor?"Why you not doctor?"
"You doctor yet?"
If you are an immigrant of any kind, or know people who are the children of 1st and maybe even 2nd generation immigrants, you have heard their parents ask them this question time and time again. It probably made you wonder? "What's the infatuation with being a doctor?" Well, it's not so much an infatuation with being a medical practitioner. It's more a desire that immigrant parents have to want their children to be successful and well respected in the new country.
Growing up, I was a pretty inquisitive child. I love to ask questions, take things apart to see how they worked, and I received good marks in school. Naturally, my 1st-gen immigrant parents took this as a sign of, "she is gonna be a doctor." And frankly, I didn't mind the thought. Science classes were my close favorites next to art classes and I loved reading theories, so the idea of being a practitioner of medicine didn't se

Seniors, who are you?
Who the heck are those people with that medal behind their names? Are they called seniors because they've been here since forever? What's it like to recieve seniority? Can you suggest someone for seniority? Is it true that they have magical senior powers?
First things first: No, we don't have super special magic senior abilities (apart from being able to access the Senior Forum of course). We can't ban people for example, we're not admins. There's also no reason for you to be afraid of talking to us, we don't bite (we just sometimes want people off our lawns ).
We're really just regular people who happen to be dedicated to the dA community. Some of us got their medal (or tick when it was still the old user symbols) because of sa

Awesome ABSTRACTS of Autumn CONTEST Results!
:iconautumntree3plz: Unframed-Nature's BIG CONTEST Rusults:
"Awesome ABSTRACTS of Autumn!" :iconautumntree3plz:
We had exactly 66 truly brilliant entries!
We had 10 incredible judges.
We did not only have these ten judges, but they were ten genuinely awesome, and talented people on the judging panel, who took this on in a way I've never experienced from a total group of judges in general.
They took it on like a project that they were either already familiar with, or one that would be an opportunity to research and learn a lot from. Either way they took quite a bit of time with this contest, a few took a lot of time with it throughout the contest, studying and following it closely. Either way, in the end, each judge made educated choices based
