WOO, BACK MOSTLY!!!I found out that it was my laptop mouse that was making the laptop run glitchy, so I tried my old mouse in, and it worked!So now that I have a smooth running computer, I can be back on here for at least the community part, but I just can't really do art until there is a new/fixed desktop because I have no good editing program on this laptop, and there is not enough space to download my project files on to here.So Sunday, I will be able to start up my "Emoticon of the Week" series again, and the 26th, I'll start up my "Fella Features You!" series. I missed my turn for deviant365 last, but some time in September it will be my turn again to do my contest/project.So, I noticed a lot of cool stuff has happened over the summer! Like Endorell-Taelos and Astralseed getting deviousness, Waluigi-Prower becoming the new emoticon CV, and the July 2014 Seniority (which included Eitvys200, rainylake TheGalleryOfEve, and simplys
Computer Problems SuckSo the computer ended up completely dying, and the laptop is being dumb, so I can't be doing my thing on here for at least a few weeks. I unfortunately can not write up any articles over my phone ,, , but I can over my laptop, it will just take a lot longer.>.> I can't promise being really active as I'd like to be on here until I get a new desktop.i know I've been saying that if be back full time and everything like twice now, but it's just been one thing after another this summer so far keeping me off here.I hope to see you guys more soon! Again, the computer gets replaced I will be able to be on here as much as I was able to before. Love you all! I hope you are having a great summer/winter!
Will be out for a little time longerHey!So I found out that I have another trip planned out this week, busy summer haha, so I will not be back full for like another week.>.>In other news though, I will not be making any art for some time because my desktop's hard drive went out, and my laptop mouse is really dumb, so making anything with it would be a real pain. I will be active otherwise tough when I get back.See you guys!

Emoticon Tournament 2014 PreparationsHey!So this summer, I am planning on hosting the 2014 Emoticon Tournament!It will be run much like last year, with maybe a few variations in the rules where needed based on last year.One of the major rule changes though this year, is that instead of there being initially one week to create your entry, there will be two weeks. Each round could last up to three weeks, if there is popular demand for a one week extension.I will start choosing judges, and maybe an assistant or two pretty soon, but I will not really start going big on planning until I get back full swing mid June. There will be judging applications as there were last year, so look out for those.So until then, I will start opening up donations for the event. So if you have some spare points, and want to help give this a head start, you can donate to my other account IceXDragon-Alt!Thanks everyone! I hope this year it will be very epic and fun!:
Weekly Hunt #124Every Friday, there will be a 'Hunt' for either the Most or the Least of something or other. It's a weekly (hopefully) fun activity, open to all, that will get you scouring deviantART for the best possible piece that fits the 'Hunt'.The person who suggests the best piece will get four of their art pieces featured on our page and, in return, the piece itself will also be featured on dAseniors' front page!Please suggest up to 2 pieces to this folder, not on this journal!(It will be automatically approved, so make sure you submit wisely. )Last time, we had the most...Amazing Lightning!Suggested by SilverInkblot Another Awesome Suggestion:
I won't be around much......for the next month or so.I haven't been spending many afternoons here at home as of late, so I haven't had much dA time as I have school stuffs in the morning. And right after school ends, I'll be helping out with a day camp for 2 weeks, and immanently after attend a week long summer camp in Ohio!So due to this, especially starting June 3rd, my activity here will be minimal. Never fear though, I should be back normally around the 21st, when I can be on here in the morning!I will though keep up with my articles, as I can just write schedule those on the weekend and they will post.Everyone, have an awesome week!

CONTEST PORTRAITS - drawings and paintings :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?Yes!- So, can you submit a drawing of a body in which we can not see the head?No!- And can you submit a full body drawing?
Why you not doctor?"Why you not doctor?""You doctor yet?""Doctor... good." 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
