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: 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.
The exact time for the deadline is 7 pm US central time.
Mediums allowed

Digital
Group's first contest: Create the group's mascot!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 about when submitting. ^^ I also include oni and tengu in the kemonomimi spectrum.
4. Cannot have green and pink a


POINT COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN! I do have a paypal but I would rather take points at this time.

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

REQUESTS ARE CLOSED.

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

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 14, 2017, 4:36 PM


I know I already posted in the forums, but I'm not really seeing anything I like so far. So I'm writing a journal too to see if I can find more  icon artists and what they offer. I'm really picky apparently ^^;

I will be paying in points and my budget is preferably 2,000 :points: or below. If I really love the style though I will pay a bit more.

The character I want to be in the icon is:

Sick again so checking messages tomorrow. Thank god I made it through work and I'm off tomorrow
Feel like doing some free sketches to help me warm up a bit from not drawing for a few days. It will not be first come,first serve as I will be picking a few characters I like the most and it may depend on how I feel tomorrow. I don't feel well tomorrow, I may not do any sketches. ^^;

So post one or two characters below, if you are interested. You can also suggest your friends' OCs if you don't have any you would like drawn.
Well I feel a bit better today. At least my fever finally broke, I think. Although when my mom had this crap, she felt better for a day and then the day after that, she was puking. So who knows :dummy: So I'm going to try sketching a bit and see how that goes.

 Shikeyy I will try to work on that thing the next few days since the my doctor has me off work until Monday. Provided I don't start puking.

Also thank the fact that I have paid sick days. I would be missing 3 days of work from my check if I didn't have them.
Well guys there may not be any art submitted for the next week or two. I have a chibi done but may not actually upload for a while.

I think I have the flu my mom had that had her out of work for like a week. I've started really coughing last night/this morning and my chest already feels tight and hurts. I've been dizzy, fatigued and had stabbing pains all over all day. Then when I got home I took my temperature and it was 100 degrees.

So if I kind of disappear for a bit, this is why. ^^; If you want to talk or it's important, try sending me notes. I have the app on my phone so it will alert me. Will try to be on long enough at least to check groups.


Also if you added me to your watch last night or today, thank you! I just don't feel well enough to thank you each individually. ^^
Anyone have tutorials that they really like to use? Can be for just about anything. :3 I just found this cute one for drawing trees. XD Plus I found it super helpful since I cannot draw a tree to save my life. :crying:
