September's over and so is the raffle. The winner has been randomly chosen. Congratulations to Lupana! Her winning "ticket" was a response to the question, "You're given the plane ticket equivalent of a blank check. Where would you fly?" Her answer? "Yellowstone National Park. Because I've always wanted to go there!"
A screenshot of the results is posted here:
Thanks to everyone who participated! More contests and raffles to come.
State of Commissions
Commissions are still open, but my estimated turn around time has increased to 1-2 weeks (though most paintings are finished faster). While I can no longer offer my previous turnaround time of a few days without a rush request, please be assured that I'm still doing everything I can to continue to offer timely commissions that don't compromise on quality.
State of Fan Art
As I've mentioned in a few recent deviation descriptions, I really hope that people who watch me for my fan art paintings haven't been too annoyed or disappointed that my uploads have been commission-heavy. I'm really enjoying doing commissions of original characters and feel that it's pushing me to try new subject matter and painting techniques. But I'd like to assure anyone who's thinking something along the lines of "Where be the fan artz?" that there's plenty more in the works. Upcoming projects that are currently in various states of completion include Bellatrix Lestrange, Sirius Black, an Inglorious Basterd, and another character from The Hobbit. And I hope it goes without saying that there's [always] more Les Mis on the way.
I was tagged by Tiquilla with the tag posted here. fav.me/d5ejumk
Five things about me:
1) The last movie I saw was Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.
2) When I eat a bag of M&M's, I feel compelled to sort them by color before eating them.
3) I need to change the nib on my tablet pen.
4) I recently discovered the comic book series The Boys by Garth Ennis and think it's amazing.
5) My cat is sitting on my lap as I type this.
Tiquilla's Questions (copied verbatim from her post):
1) Whats you lucky number? I don't have one.
2) Are you in love? No.
3) Do you think you can draw? I try. Often, I try really hard.
4) Can you ,,Warrior cats" ? I've heard of the series but am not familiar with it.
5) Whats you favourite movie art(thriller...)? My favorite film genre is action, though that's a pretty diverse category these days. Historical dramas, thrillers, and comedies are also up there.
6) Do you love to draw? Most days.
7) How long you draw? I've been drawing since I got my first Magna Doodle. I think I was around two years old then.
8) when is you birthday? (*O*) On the anniversary of one of the biggest battles of the American Civil War.
9) Were is you idol? Among others, I have a deep admiration for anyone who does work that benefits the welfare of animals.
10) What do you Think over middleages? It's a time period in history that never really interested me as much as others. For what it's worth, Monty Python and the Holy Grail is one of my favorite movies, ever. (And Spamalot is awesome!)
11) Believe you on the ,, Friday the 13 " ?? No.
Instead of tagging anyone specific, I'm going to turn this into a raffle of sorts. If you'd like to enter, post a comment on this journal entry that answers as many or as few of my tag questions as you'd like (they're posted below). The number of questions you answer will be the number of virtual "raffle tickets" or entries that you get. I'll determine the winner using a random number generator. So if the first person to post a reply answers six out of the thirteen possible questions, that person will get "ticket" numbers 1 through 6. If the second person answers three questions, he or she will get numbers 6 through 8. And so on.
-Only one comment per person. So no one may have more than 13 total "ticket" numbers.
-Don't worry about assigning raffle numbers to each of your answers. I'll take care of the counting when I do the drawing.
-Comments will remain open for about a week, at which point I'll draw the random winner.
-Prize is a free greyscale portrait from me (copyrighted characters accepted!)
1) What's the title of the last book you finished?
2) You're only allowed to participate in one fandom for the rest of your life. What one do you choose?
3) DC or Marvel?
4) Any tattoos? If not, would you ever get one?
5) What form does your Patronus take?
6) Drink of choice? (Alcoholic or otherwise.)
7) Are you the oldest, a middle child, the baby, or an only kid?
8) What's your dream car (or other vehicle)?
9) You're given the plane ticket equivalent of a blank check. Where would you fly?
10) What movie, tv show or character from any medium most reminds you of your own life or personality?
11) WHAT is your name?!
12) WHAT is your favorite color?!

Have fun! I hope everyone's September is going ok and look forward to reading your answers. (And of course, please feel free to post in the comments even if you don't want to answer any of the questions or enter the contest.)
