Can You Spare Some Points?Hey guys..
i've recently taken over at the :iconda-morgue: and have just discovered that we lost our super group status.
I had no idea we were that close to losing it.
AND..of course, it comes at a time when i have barely any points to put towards the 4000+ points needed to get our membership back.
If you have a few points...doesn't matter how small....would you consider donating it?? i will have a large journal feature done showcasing all of the donors that put forth points.
Thank you so much, even for just reading and considering donating.
AND THE WINNERS ARE.....First Winner: :iconjcdow3:
more work by this talented artist
Second Winner: :iconnitchwarmer:
check out his gallery...here are a few samples!!! quite the artist
Third Winner: :iconalan1828:

LAST DAY.Today is July 1. which means ALL entries for my little contest ( http://jaded-ink.deviantart.com/journal/EXTENDED-I-m-giving-away-900-POINTS-373339827 )are due in today by midnight.
thank you to everyone who entered. I appreciate the time you took to create something for me.
later this week, i'm going to feature all the entries, and next week i will announce the winners. All of you did a wonderful job, and i couldn't have asked for anything more than this. You really helped raise my spirits.
EXTENDED!!!!! I'm giving away 900 POINTS!I've got some new stock up...well, newish.
i want to see something awesome. i'm depressed and tired of the world, so i want to make a happy spot for someone.
there are 900 points up for grab.
tell you what you have to do? sure. take my stock. do something with it. send me a link in my notes.
sound easy enough?
there will be 3 winners.... i hate that whole 1st, 2nd, and 3rd thing...so instead of one getting better than the other, here's the deal...points will be separated out equally between top 3 entries... the judging will be done by more than just myself, i'll update that as i go along. unless i get like 2 entries...and then, why bother at all? I'm leaving the contest open for an entire month, so entries are due in JUNE 23rd. that gives some of you procrastinators and perfectionists time to get stuff in to me. I will have all winners announced by july 1st. If I dont get volunteers to help judge, I might run a poll for popular vote.
EVERY ENTRY GETS A FEATURE, AND A LLAMA!

wanna lend a hand?I've been invited to be a feature artist during our towns "art walk"....
how can you help? Go to my gallery and tell me which of my works you like best. I'm having a hard time deciding what to get prints of for my booth. I am thinking i'm going to have to play it low key, as my town is a little....reserved. help me narrow it down a little, and i will reward you for your efforts!
Also...did you guys catch the great deals from devArt gear? awesome camera bags for $25....and that cubist messenger bag is sooooo sweet.
Hope you all are well! Thanks in advance for any help you might give!
OMG!!!!!!!!!I HAVE AN IMAC!!!!!
yes, boys and girls, i haven't been able to create anything thanks to a lack of video card cable which died on me a few weeks ago.
but now...now i have an iMac.
and soon, photoshop.
fucking hell, i'm so excited!
My Sincerest Apologies.Happy fucking friday the 13th.
I just realized, i hadn't done a promised feature. not to mention, i've been seriously slack here as it is lately even though i'm trying like fucking crazy to keep up.
You all know i love you, right?
anyway... for the winners of the :icondarkart-challenges: contest, here is your long awaited feature. I am happy I got the prizes delivered, at least i didn't get all slack on that.
(bear with me, i refuse to feature myself, so here is 1st and 2nd place)
it was an awesome contest, with alot of great entries and prizes to be had. looking forward to the next big contest!!!!
and my apologies to all of you that sent me birthday wishes and that i didn't get to respond to,
Time To Kick It In The Ass.obviously i'm not getting any better at keeping a journal.
obviously, my updating here SUCKS.
however. Its time to change that.
its time to do something worthwhile.
I was looking on my harddrive and realized i had about 5 pieces i've not uploaded yet. i worked on them, and then left them by the side of the world just waiting for the day i would maybe do something with them.
so. i guess i'll upload them.
Also. i think i'll be spending more time at the :icondarkart-challenges: side trying to help max out. even though i feel almost entirely left shoe in a right foot world most days, i think i might be able to try to focus there. i need a moment of organization and someone to help keep me in line. the life i have leaves me in complete chaos almost always, and lately the only schedules i know is wake up, go to work, go home, go to bed...and repeat.
its time for a change.
so. there you have it. I'll be doing a feature next week, maybe tuesday.
and i'm doing a mini give away. get i
an update...of sorts!okay kids..
i realize i've been REALLY shitty about replying to comments and notes and what not. I realize that.
and when i am here...i look at the 11,000+ pieces of artwork sitting in stacks and i get scared and wander off before my brain overloads and makes it so i can't focus.
YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN SOOOOOO BUSY!
its fabulous. i can't wait to check out what you've all been up to. seriously.
as for me...work is still...work. driving me nuts. now that i'm pretty much the one running the show, things seem to keep me more busy than i want. between that, life, family, and a few side jobs i have managed to do recently...i've been on overdrive. I don't even know how i manage to get anything done for dA, but..this place is my love. its where i have met so many amazing and talented artists, and in all actuality...it is the roots of my artwork.
personally...i've been having some issues with an abscessed tooth that is going to be removed in about a week. I've been on antibiotics and steroids and p

Imagine that you are a young social worker, dedicated to finding out the hidden and forgotten old souls who haunt the cold, mean streets of the city. You seek to report on their living conditions, possibly recommending they be removed from their roach-infested “homes.”

You CAN Do It Too! Commissions, Exposure, and...
Do you feel like no one cares about your artwork? That no matter how hard you try, you'll never improve? Well, I've been there before.
A little less than a year ago, I didn't even have 100 watchers. It was tough trying to find commissions, even though I priced them around 10 - 100 an hour. Sure, I had some wonderful people supporting me (thank you very much for that!), but when I looked at the thousands of diehard fans the "popular" artists had, I felt kinda useless. It seemed like even a thousand watchers, or just being able to earn minimum wage was impossible. Sometimes I wanted to cry from all the effort I put in. I kept drawing and drawing but barely improving. I was frustrated and felt useless. But instead of giving up, I pushed myself even harder, and by God's grace it's starting to work out for me.
I now have over 16,000 amazing people encouraging me, and I know it's only a matter of tim
No more excuses, it's time to improve your art!You’re probably well acquainted with the old proverb “practice makes perfect.” And while I don’t fully believe that perfection is attainable, because the very notion of perfection is somewhat subjective, getting better at anything requires both time and effort. I’m going be very blunt here; if you want to improve your artistic skill you need to actually practice.
My heart goes out to everyone here who is struggling to improve so don’t feel that I’m purposely singling you out here. However throughout my time on dA (and in real life) I’ve met artists begging for advice on how to quickly improve and sadly when I tell them to begin practicing the excuse is always ‘well, I don’t really have the time for that.’
And I ain’t got time for yo attitude.
You do have the time

Basic CSS Style GuideIntroduction
CSS is a style language used to define the style and formatting of web pages. It is used in conjunction with HTML.
If we think of HTML as the building blocks of the web then, essentially, CSS is the painter and decorator. Very simply, HTML defines the structure of the page and CSS defines the style.
What I'll be helping you with here is getting to grips with the basics of CSS. I'll be explaining how use CSS as well as providing a number of examples that you can use to style your own web pages and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also written a brief glossary of terms and provided a list of useful links in case you wish to do some further reading.
A point of note is that while the information and examples I've given here apply to CSS use anywhere on the web, this guide itself is geared towards the use of CSS on deviantART. As such, and given that this h

JULY Challenge WATER vote and win points:icontransparentplz:
All works here
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th wins 25 .

Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.
How you can help
