Awkward Forced Date (idea by Rizzie-chan)

art owed me and a reminder to me to pay if I haven't already

reminder for me when I use the Tsukiko journal skin: That is being caused because the background is an image; which doesn't repeat seamlessly. You can use an additional code each time you submit an entry to get rid of that. Just remove the star. :) Here it is

OC contest OpenUPDATE 02/11/17: Deadline will be extended to March 31st 2017. Same time and time zone though.
 If you would like to see the entries submitted so far, you can find them here:
http://missriku.deviantart.com/favourites/45821132/contest-entries
So about once a year I host a contest and it's been about a year since my last one.
Theme

So by the time this contest ends Valentines Day will be over but only by a few weeks. So I thought that would be fitting for a theme. :3 Valentine's Day, in my opinion, is for love in general. Whether that be between lovers or between friends. Of course some people also see it as a painful day for anyone who is single too.
So that is your theme, to draw one or more of my OCs with the theme of love. Be that the love between friends, lovers or a lack of.
Start and end dates:

This contest begins as soon as I submit this journal and ends on March 1st. That should give about 2 months to draw. Although I may extend it.

Group's first contest: Create the group's mascot!Update 2/25/17: Deadline has been moved to May 1st 2017 with the same time of day. ^^ Also  no entries yet.
Hello everyone! :3 I hope everyone is doing alright so far this year.
So the secret santa is over and I would like to start off this year with a contest to create the group's mascot. I will be giving at least three months to for participants to come up with a character design.
Start and end dates:
This contest begins as soon as this is submitted and I get the folder set up. The deadline is April 6th 2017 at 7 pm Central time in the United States (can't quite remember the exact name of the time zone).
Rules:
1. You must be a member of this group to participate!
2. No tracing, using bases or linearts not your own, using games, or outright stealing.
3. Your design has to be a kemonomimi in a kimono or other traditional Asian influenced design. HAS TO BE BOTH. Not just a human in a kimono or just a kemonomimi in a western outfit. I've had people forget that's what the group is a


POINT COMMISSIONS ARE CLOSED!

ART TRADES: Are open but I am pickier about these. Make sure you can draw humans or kemonomimi.

REQUESTS ARE CLOSED.

MissRiku's Profile Picture
MissRiku
Heather
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
I am a 23 year old, digital artist from Missouri. :3 I like anime, manga and most things cute or Japanese. I especially adore drawing kemonomimi, kimono and, eventually, bishies.

I'm a bit shy but I don't bite! So if you want to start up a conversation, feel free to drop me a note or comment on my page. :3 If you are looking for critique, let me know, but I may not be the best person to give critique unless you are a beginner.

You can call me Heather, Riku, or, if I know you well enough, a nickname of your own for me.

If you like my journal skin the art was done by iKiska KaetlynShae and neonparrot

Riku's kimono request box (read for details)

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 14, 2017, 3:09 PM


I try not to do a lot of requests but I'm trying to get out of art block and these may help.

What types of requests will I be doing?


I want to try out doing different kimono patterns. I love all the different kinds of patterns I see on kimono but as of yet I really can't pull it off well. Hence why my characters' outfits are plain.

So I want to try drawing people's OCs in kimono. :3 I will try to keep color schemes and personalities in mind when drawing the patterns and kimono.

Rules:

  • I will be drawing them in kimono. Don't ask me to draw them in something else.
  • OCs only. Will not be drawing multicharacter works or fanart.
  • May be chibis or normal style. I will choose which one.
  • YOU MUST WATCH ME. New watchers are welcome.
  • Will not be first come first serve. I will choose the ones I get an idea for. So I may not even do all the requests I get.
  • Please have full body and full color references.
  • Please tell me a little bit about their personality and likes and dislikes.
  • I draw humanoids so please don't give me animal OCs and expect me to draw them as an animal. I can humanize them if you are ok with that.
  • You must comment on this journal.


This will close on March 31st!

Artist feature 20

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 25, 2017, 6:57 AM


This is turning into a feature every other week. :crying: I'm on vacation from work until next Saturday. :la: I think I also forgot to mention I'm having minor surgery again on the same spot because it hasn't healed completely yet. AGAIN.  So Tuesday the 28th I may not be on much.


This week I'm featuring HimitsuMitsu

Activity


So I've been on a slight hiatus. I do try to check my group messages via my phone though. So if it's real important, just shoot me a note. I check groups and notes first.

Also I have a new icon made by leyalluna :la: You should definitely check out her stuff. :3
Well don't expect any art from me for a bit. I will probably be babysitting my nephews by myself until I go back to work on Saturday. For no pay. :stare: and I have stitches currently so I personally don't think this is a good idea
Well so much for rest and relaxation on my vacation. :angry My brother and his kids have been staying with us for at least a week now. I can't even get any drawing in most of the time because the kids like to scream, cry and yell for no reason. Oh and they like to barge in to my room without knocking when they know they are not allowed in my room. PERIOD. And yes I lock the door but then they pound on it until I have to get up and chase them away. :stare:

Plus I end up having to take my brother places when all I want to do is stay home and get some shit done.
So I'm now a junglegym according to my 3 and 4 year old nephews. Save me :crying:
Sick again so checking messages tomorrow. Thank god I made it through work and I'm off tomorrow
