Big-Big Thumbs #14

Fri Apr 18, 2014, 4:42 AM
Welcome to yet another round of awesome Big Thumbs!  If you are interested you can always check out the previous features in this collection :D

:star: Big Thumbs? :star:


To make a big thumb all you do is append the word big in the thumbnail.  This is a very handy feature when doing features.  Here is how it is done:

Hanging up the Ha... heart?

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 15, 2014, 10:03 AM
Damaged Thoughts

Hello there!  I know that "hanging up the hat" doesn't really apply in the age of CV hearts but I couldn't really think of a good title that used heart.  Maybe something like "stabbed the heart with a medal"... ew, no.  :lol:  Hanging up the hat sounds so much more friendly than "giving up my heart" or something :XD:

Anyways, why am I stepping down?  Well, it's honestly time.  The main reason is ship girls work :giggle:

I'm not sure how many of you know this but I am an IT contractor and my work is fluid.  While it is very stable work (each contract is multiple years in length) it can also change on the drop of a dime.  Back in August everything was groovy.  I had plenty of time to do everything I needed to do.  The beginning of February changed all that.

At the beginning of February a man I worked with for over a decade left (not on excellent terms either.  Not gonna go into that).  Besindes his leaving crushing me (because he was the boss that turned me from an 18 year old hunk of dung into a stand up, working class citizen) He also taught me everything I know about IT. His leaving also left a major void in the team and his major responsibilities needed to be picked up.  

This change has made juggling my CV duties and IRL duties difficult.  Frankly speaking, CVing has taken a huge back seat to everything else since then (and it's shown).  I've made mistakes and I have not been giving the "job" it's just due.  I've been going through the motions and that isn't fair to anyone.  My heart hasn't been in it so I think it's time for someone with fresh piss and vinegar in their veins.  Okay, that saying might be a bit large for this topic but you know what I mean :XD:

I'm not going anywhere though.  dA is too ingrained in my life so I'll be as active as I can be.  It's just time for someone with the time and energy to do the job the way it is suppose to be done :D

Why you should never question a drunk

I was shopping at the local supermarket where I selected:
 
A half-gallon of 2% milk,
A carton of eggs,
A quart of orange juice,
A head of romaine lettuce,
A 2 lb. can of coffee
A 1 lb. package of bacon.

As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out,  a drunk standing behind me watched as I placed the items in front of the cashier.

While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated, 'You must be single.'

I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since I was indeed a single.  I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status.

Curiosity getting the better of me, I said , "Well, you know what, you're absolutely right. But how on earth did you know that? "

The drunk replied,  " 'Cause you're ugly."

  • How does this work?
    Every month I'll give you a theme and you'll have to create a Manga/Anime styled entry according to it :la:

  • Can we submit pre-existing works that fit the theme?
    Nope. All entries must be made specifically for this contest, old artworks won't be accepted.


Alright! :la: Now that we have the basics down, let's get into serious bussiness! :giggle:

April's Contest: Camping! :iconbummy3:


For this months theme the theme is Camping!  For this contest your anime-styled character(s) need to be camping!  So, your entry needs to depict them doing camp activites.  Things like Camp Fires or Camp Activites (E.G. Archery) are a-okay :D

RINGS A/C Winners!

Tue Mar 18, 2014, 9:24 AM
Hello hello!

Here are the winners for the R.I.N.G.S. Action/Combat Contest!  Man, this was remarkably difficult to judge.  There were so many excellent entries.  So, in leiu of this, I have made 3 runners ups!  It just wouldn't feel right only giving out 3 prizes for the excellent art that was entered :love:  You can see all the entries in this journal :D

In the end, I made my choices based on a combination of technical skill, how well the characters were depicted and how well the piece fit the action and combat theme.  

So, without further ado, here are the Winners!! :heart:

Thank you everyone! :w00t:

RINGS A/C Contest is Over!

Mon Mar 17, 2014, 9:07 AM
Hello hello!

The R.I.N.G.S. Action/Combat Contest! is now over!  Thank you all so very much for participating!  Now comes the worst part: judging.  All the entries are so lovely and picking just 3 is always a challenge.  I should have the winners posted in a day or so :)

So, without further ado, here are the entries! :heart:

Prizes!


The prizes are slightly different this time around :)  Instead of having runners up I have made the prize worth a bit more :eyes:

:bulletblue: First Place! ($65 US Dollars) :bulletblue:
I will pay this out through PayPal.  If you do not have PayPal I will give you the equivalent amount of points (5200).

:bulletblue: Second Place! ($35 US Dollars) :bulletblue:
I will pay this out through PayPal.  If you do not have PayPal I will give you the equivalent amount of points (2800).

:bulletblue: Third Place! ($20 US Dollars) :bulletblue:
I will pay this out through PayPal.  If you do not have PayPal I will give you the equivalent amount of points (1600).

Of course, these prizes assumes there will be good turn out for the contest.  If there are not a lot of entries I will most likely only have a first and second place winner :nod:

Deadline


:bulletgreen: The DEADLINE is 17-March-2014 at 11:59 AM EST (Eastern Standard Time) :bulletgreen:
You can check the timezone here.  I live near Boston so use that as your guide ;)

And, yes, I did check what day 17-March is.  It is a Monday morning.  This gives you a full weekend before the deadline (and a few hours after I get up at 0530) to complete and finish an entry.  It's best not to wait till the deadline to avoid panic.  There will be NO EXTENSIONS for this contest :nod:
