Icons for a Good Cause - CLOSEDUpdate 04-01-2013: Project will be on hold and not accepting any more requests. I will clear the waiting list and then close the project for good.
Update of the Update: Well dang, people, the interest is so high that I'll open a few more slots, it's for a good cause after all. xD That means that there's a chance you'll have to wait a bit longer though since I'll have more to work through.
Update 02-27-2013: The project is open again and I will be taking orders for five more slots before closing for good. That means this is not only your last chance to participate in the project but also your last chance to get one of the chibis in my old style. As always, comment on the journal if you would like to commission an icon in order to help out; in depth guidelines below.
Update 12-25-2012: The project will be on hold for a little while so I can clear off the list and also get all the other stuff done that I
Draw Your OC with Mine: CLOSED - Now JudgingYep, the deadline's finally here.
And I think I can officially assume that you guys are out to kill me. How the heck am I supposed to pick only three between all these wonderful entries? Well, there's a good chance you'll get the results only in 2014, so sit tight.
How about browsing through all the entries in the meantime? You can find them here: http://valasedai.deviantart.com/favourites/57899520
There's two last minute entries in there too, so be sure to check it all out.
Just a small remark: If you plan to draw Gorhn, please please please don't forget that he is freakishly tall for a Bosmer. I speak from experience when I say people have overlooked that and it's one of the things that make him relatively unique so just...keep it in mind, mkay? xD He's literally Altmer size. Maybe at the lower range for Altmer but still tall enough to actually BE an Altmer. (which btw he could be partly, seeing as he never knew his parents D: ) Now I'm babbling. /runs off

Gallery Makeover: Icons and Handhelds We're slowly nearing the end of this first phase of the Gallery Restructure Project which means if you would still like to give us any kind of feedback related to the Icons & Handhelds gallery structure, now's the time to do so!
Please also scroll down and see which points have been brought up by the community and feel free to tell us what you think about them.
As recently announced by Moonbeam13 in this article deviantART will soon be undergoing a rather extensive makeover of the gallery system in order to streamline categories and simplify submissions. That will amongst others include the removal of dead categories, merging where it makes sense or simply a complete restructuring of a whole root category if necessary.
Community input is highly important for this so with this journal you have the opportunity to specifically give feedback concerning the Icons

The Art of DreamingEmpty is the world that's known to you
I left it behind, to eternity I broke through
Thousand times I dreamt and woke up in my bed
One time in another dream, on earth I was dead
I know of seven gates of dreaming
That one can enter into a separate reality
Not in ordinary dreams, they are not as they seem
Nothing real, the dreamer's fantasy
The Visitor by JKRoots-Frozen hell by wagner19
But if the dreamer starts to get control
Entities of other dimensions cross his way
Dark Hours of the Life by ExiledenCreepy Tree by churchmediageekMonolith by JKRoots
His dream body awakes and the wings of his soul
But woe to those not strong enough, a deadly price they pay

Over the Misty Mountains ColdTo dungeons deep and caverns old,
We must away, ere break of day,
To seek our pale enchanted gold.
Because mountains are probably the most amazing natural phenomenon there is and I miss them like hell here in France. And this is not meant to spite a certain someone lol. /leers over at the dude without a name

Craft a Moustache ContestWhat is Movember?
During the month of November each year, Movember asks men across the world to grow a moustache (or Mo') with the aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Mo Bros are helping to change the face of men’s health by effectively becoming walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by promoting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Together, we are truly changing the face of men’s health.

Art for someone in your life - call for artists"Would you like to help end violence against women? "Someone in your Life" is looking for artists to help with our crowdfunding campaign!
45% of women in the UK experience sexual assault, domestic violence or stalking. That's practically one in every two women subjected to violence simply for being a woman. But numbers are too abstract; too easy to ignore. So here's what I want you to do. Walk into a room, any room, and count the women. Now try to imagine that half of those women in the room with you, half of any arbitrary group of women, will have experienced horrific acts of gender-based violence at some point in their life. Think of the women in your life: your mother, your sister, your partner, your daughter, your best friend. Half of them have or will at some point experience violence because they are women. This not about some abstract 45%, some women "out there". This is about someone in your life.
Someone In Your Life aims to give women a space to speak out and tell their stori

Seasonal People + Portrait Contest Now Open!PeopleAndPortraits has well and truly launched! In conjunction with that, we wanted to bring you a fantastic shiny new contest to see you through October.
We recognize that across the world people are entering all sorts of seasons right now...which is why this isn't just about Autumn. You can utilise any season you want - and if you're extra creative, how about combining all four into one image?
The idea of a Seasonal Portraiture Contest is for you to experiment and explore whatever season you happen to be in right now - through portraiture photography! The contest is open to all categories within the People and Portrait Photography Gallery:
Infants and Children
Texture Your World ContestTell us the story of your world in textures!
We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?
We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.
There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.
These are textures created digitally by

Contest: Crossovers! As kids, we often mashed our toys together, regardless of Copyright. Superman would take command of G.I. Joe to defeat the combined forces of Doctor Doom and the Decepticons, while Barbie took a break from her idealistic lifestyle to become a Pokemon master. And the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got recruited into Starfleet and taught Spock the wonders of pizza. (And from the furor arose Mister Rogers in a blood-stained sweater.)
And thus, the Crossover was born. It's something we never really outgrew, either. To this day, seeing our favorite characters from different stories meet and compete is a guilty pleasure that we all like to indulge in. So now's your chance to indulge yourselves for prizes!
hey newton, gravity's flawedi.
starting anew from the flutter
and the sputter of lungs.
a vacant sea filled with feathers
and tumultuous clatter,
ribs in a treacherous pattern
resembling exiting rungs.
i want to wrestle the angels,
your tendency is the ladder.
involved with full indiscretion,
trading lazy for lace.
unspool the curse of the long-
limbs in a languorous flexion
i like the stab of the ankles,
you need the curves intersected.
opting to cull my extents
with trans-dimensional vigor.
spent my dysphoric corrections
on reconnecting lax ends.
lips in a spurious accent
feign a passionate rigor.
i tie myself to the anchor,
you extricate and ascend.
Keep in Touch!
