500 WATCHER EVENT: RAFFLE/HUNTING TIME: WINNERS!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 27, 2013, 6:07 PM
EDIT: The three winners for the custom adopt raffle are:
#17, Yalarof
#16, citytown 
Congratulations to you three! Send me a note whenever it's convenient for you with what you would like your custom to be! If you're not really interested in a custom, you can also have the custom made for a friend or change the custom into a custom/alternate outfit ;w;

As for the art raffle, the winners are:
Congratulations to you three as well! You should also send me a note with a ref of the OC you would like drawn, and let me know which of the listed styles here you would like ;w; <33

Thank you to everyone who participated!

So recently I noticed we hit 500 family members :iconyaytigerplz:

To celebrate all of your awesomeness, the number of you that voted wanted a custom adopt raffle and an art raffle~

And since I'm a sick weirdo, I'll be doing both! :iconamgplz:
YES, you can enter for both!

All winners be chosen using random number generators.

SO, for those interested in the CUSTOM ADOPT RAFFLE:
Zuberi Obsidian (OC) by flarechess you remember this guy? Well I want a good name for him, but I'm totally stuck. I've gotten a good suggestion so far, but maybe you guys have more ideas?
- To enter, comment on this journal with at least ONE name suggestion.

There will be THREE winners.
You can choose between any of these bases for the custom:
Custom for Fuu-Ma~ by flarechess  Customs for Squagle~ by flarechess Custom for Chiffon-Tan~ by flarechess Yuu-Chans-Adopts Collab Auction [CLOSED] by flarechess  FlareKiwixy Collab Auction [CLOSED], AB added by flarechess  Random Auction, AB added [CLOSED] by flarechess 
Prompt Adopts Auction [CLOSED] by flarechessTiny Stress Set Auction [CLOSED] by flarechess 
If there's a base I haven't mentioned here but you KNOW I have it/or it's free, you can tell me to use that base too or I can do freehand, you know how I roll

For those interested in the ART RAFFLE:
+Fave this journal
For an extra entry/number, comment telling me your favorite thing(s) to draw/write! ;w; 

There will be THREE winners.

Each winner can choose between getting: 

1 fullbody of an OC
Art Trade with Yalarof~ by flarechess

1 chibi fullbody of an OC
Request for Psycho-Ryuu~ by flarechess
or 1 lineless chibi fullbody of an OC
Lineless for PrinceProcrastinate by flarechess
Each winner can only choose ONE of these options.

As a heads-up, I'm not comfortable practiced enough at drawing:
-porn
-ferals
sorry :iconcraiplz:

So yeah, that's it.

Unless you're thinking about the Scavenger Hunt.
Now this part is a bit tricky because it wasn't as popular in the polls, but I like being evil nice, so I'm gonna do it anyways.

so somewhere in my gallery/on my profile/in my polls/in my scraps/etc, I have posted a comment with this icon: :iconshark-karuplz:
There is only one icon posted, not counting when nakaru-san posted it on my profile or the one in this journal. 
As a hint, the icon is placed on a deviation/place/journal/poll/scrap that was significant to me.

EDIT: wow you guys are fast, congrats to :iconanniehorror: on finding Karu! ;w; <33

The first person to note me the location (with the link!) of the icon wins:
- a free adopt card (n/a on collabs)
- 1 fullbody piece
- 2 lineless chibis
- 1 month premium membership

If you do not note me the link and instead comment with it, I will have to disqualify you ;-; so note me!

Good luck everyone! :heart:

Ah for the custom adopt raffle!! although naming OCs is really not my strong point //throws names at you: :iconpandarunplz:

Leka - meaning "protector"

Warin - meaning "to be watchful"

Ziya/Zia - meaning "glow"

Blaine - meaning "little yellow one"

Alrick - meaning "all powerful"

Yang - meaning "sunlight"


aaand for the art raffle, i enjoy drawing OCs the most! My own or other people's OCs hehe it's just really fun! And weirdly specifically, i like drawing giant sleeves and baggy clothes, thigh high/knee high socks, belts and buckles, looonggg hair yes!, collarbones XD, Asian-influenced stuffs hngg to name a few :XD:

baggy clothes and thigh-highs ftw Miya!! :icontuzkiloveplz:
I love looking at Asian-influenced styled clothing/designs but I personally have a hard time drawing them OTL

you mean to tell me that Blaine means the little yellow one?! XD All those years of battling a bald man in sunglasses on a volcano, and his name means the little yellow one...! I don't know if I'll ever escape this imagery :iconzoominplz:

LOL IS THAT A LLAMA
WTH MIYA
WHERE DO YOU FIND THESE ICONS :iconpapmingplz:

and Blaine is one of the original 8 gym leaders from Kanto, so you can find him in:
Red, Blue, [Green], Yellow, Silver, Gold, Crystal, LeafGreen, FireRed, SoulSilver, HeartGold, Black2, and White2.
so basically EVERY GEN EXCEPT 3 AND 4, HOENN AND SINNOH </3
he also appears in Pokemon Stadium 1&2, I think, but never played it.

and LOL AMERICAN = NON-ASIAN XD I suppose that's a pretty valid assumption tho

Name- Taichi or Coren. >.< Random.

I like to draw new characters. Like my own OC's, or all these wonderful other characters people have on this site.

I really enjoy seeing all the new designs and being able to draw them. And of course making new OC's is the best~

Reply
:iconflarechess:
flarechess Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013  Student Digital Artist
you like to draw "new" characters? O: like ones made by other people you've never seen before? 
and I like seeing everyone's creative designs too! I only wish I could compete haha //shot
I wish I could make more OCs, but I already have a ton that I need to shower with love~ </3

as for the names, Taichi reminds me of the activity that old ladies in the park do every morning XD I'm terrible
thanks for entering and good luck!

Yep, that and making my own new characters and drawing them tons until I decided to make a new one and do it again. :giggle:

I like it because it offers many different items and clothing styles to draw and really helps me practise.

 

Oh my gosh. :XD: Now that you say that...

Hmm, what about Jasper, Rhyo or Tero then. xD May help get the image of old lady's out of you head

Custom adopt:
As for the name. How about Ignis? It means fire in Latin. When I looked at him I just got a fire-vibe. Does that sound weird?
Dammnit why am I so bad at naming.
Art raffle:
I faved it!
My favourite thing to draw is humans and cats, and anything with this combination. ^/////^
Cute stuff and dragons. Also mythical themes like ancient gods and angels and such. And elements, especially water.
I like to draw many things

Reply
:iconflarechess:
flarechess Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013  Student Digital Artist
haha I had a slight fiery/passionate vibe about him too! //I secretly like the name Ignis because it reminds me of Inigo, and god damn I have a huge crush on that boy <33
and you like dragons?? I can never seem to draw them properly OTL but I admit they're super awesome! //water is hard for me to draw too :iconcraiplz:
It's good that you like to draw a lot of things, though! It means you've got an unlimited amount of possibilities for your art! ;w; <33
thanks for entering, and good luck!

I'll be entering just the art raffle~

I like drawing angel wings, formal/uniform attire, and fox ears+tails~ as for scenery my favorite things to draw/paint are skies, clouds, seas, and waves! Trees are also fun too. :3

 

Ah, also as a side note on the name suggestions, I strongly recommend a non-japanese name. I have no idea why people like to use Japanese names for their characters, even if they're not Japanese themselves;; I think a cool-sounding English/Latin/European language word would be much more respectable. ;3; As for me I like using Korean names because they're less common and I like my language~

Reply
:iconflarechess:
flarechess Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013  Student Digital Artist
haha I remember when I was growing up, I wanted all of my characters to have awesome Japanese names because I was bored of normal English names, but recently I've started switching my characters back to English/other languages out of... well, realism XD

and you and your formally dressed winged foxes <33 I love how everything you can draw in the scenery are the hardest things for me to draw :'D </3

anyways, thanks for entering and good luck!

PlatinaCreari Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I had a stage like that too, back in 5th grade XD Yeah, I agree- much more realistic, plus Japanese is too overrated ;3;
OHO YOU JUST GAVE ME ANOTHER ADOPT IDEA :iconheplz: I should toy with that idea a bit more before I actually make em adopts though. Thanks! 8D<3 and awww haha you'll get better~ I was horrible at em till much recently. you can see all my weird attempts at clouds and sunsets in my old artworks folder on my main account :iconuhuhuhuplz:

Anytime~ +w+

Hm.. Custom raffle thingy:
Nemeziel (You can call him Neme! Ne-ME so his full name is pronounced Ne-me-z-el)
Elrin
Yulin

Art raffle:
Well, I love to draw humans. My OCs, your OCs, anyone's OCs basically. I also like them to be interesting too. I have to like drawing them, not hating to draw a generic OC... I'm sorry.. but some people (By some, I mean a whole lot. But doesn't mean it's a whole lot on DA because there's so many wondering OCs.) have generic OCs.. I also like to create designs. Seriously ;-; I've made a few and I instantly fell in love with... I don't have them on here though x.x I need a scanner.. I really do...

And I want to get better ;-; Do you perhaps have a request? I am practicing a lot, but because of school now (Yep.. school's ruining everything for us artists) it's going a bit slower then usual. If you do have a request, you can ask for it here x.x tarynghost23.deviantart.com/jo… I'd really appreciate it if you did :heart:

haha sorry for not replying to this comment in particular earlier, I wanted to fully read it when I got on a computer to document your entry number for the raffle XD
//but as you saw, I left you a request whee
and yeah! I remember when I first arrived on dA, I was a little ashamed with how plain my OCs were... I had never compared them to other artists' before, so I didn't realize how plain my designs were. Weird how being around artists can really open up your mind!
good luck and thanks for entering!~

Oh, yea.. But I don't think Taryn was on the plain side because of all the little designs I added. The clothes choice on the other hand... meh. lol And yes, artists just seem to really expand your mind. They make you think on how better you can make a character.

Thank you :heart:

The first name which got in my mind after seeing the character was Luxius! Maybe Fey, Rory, Heath would suit him as well?

My favorite thing to draw is women I think. I really like drawing people, it's so much fun playing with the anatomy and poses and curves, later the shading, which is my favorite part of the drawing process. Although I'm not that good with the male anatomy so I'd stick with females, heheh... Concept or if it's fan art or not doesn't matter, I just like to draw pretty ladies~ (and all ladies are pretty)

... Needs to be something gender neutral. 
Shay?
I really have no idea. 

My favorite thing to draw is my ocs. All 40+. 
Lame answer? Yes. But (sadly) true.
