Hey, everyone! It's been awhile.

Since I've started posting my artwork (hopefully regularly) online again, I guess I should let you all know about my new deviantART account: Wyveram! Anyone who's still interested in following my art can go ahead and watch me over there.

(I lied account me drawing less cats. No more Warriors, though.)
Hey, guys!

So, as the title states, I have some important(for anyone who cares) things I should probably let my watchers know about. It's been awhile since I've logged on to deviantART(really, it's just been a few weeks, but still). And, in case you haven't noticed already, I've been incredibly inactive here lately. So, to be simply put, I've decided to leave dA. I may or may not come back, and if I do it'll be on a new account(though, to be completely honest, I doubt that's gonna happen). I've emptied out my gallery, but everything is just in scraps! So my art is still accessible for anyone who enjoys looking at it(aside from a select few of my older pieces, but nobody needs to be looking at those anyways). I'm doing this because the majority of my art is of Warriors/Warrior Cats, and that's what most of my watchers are watching me for, but I've moved on from the Warriors series(just not interested in the books or characters anymore) and I just don't really feel like hanging around on an account that was/is mostly dedicated to a book series I'm no longer into. Not to mention deviantART as a website no longer really interests me.

But! I'll probably pop up somewhere on one or two different websites sometime in the near(ish) future, and when I do I'll most likely check back onto this account and put some links up on my profile about my new whereabouts! Just keep in mind I will not be drawing Warriors ever again and any new art I produce will most likely be a lot different from the stuff I've posted up here(definitely less cats!).

And a little message for the three winners of that contest I held awhile back(Littlewadles, SimplyMisty, and Sophie-The-Great13)! Don't worry, the characters you designed me will get used sooner or later! And once I do use them for something(such as a story or just as a fun character to draw from time to time) I'll let you know so you can see that the fantastic design you came up with for me is getting the attention it deserves!

It's been a great (almost)two years here on deviantART, and I've made a lot of really great acquaintances, and I appreciate every favorite, comment, and watcher I've gotten(special thanks to everyone who did an art trade with me/drew me gift art! I've got all your stuff saved on my computer so I can still look at all the fantastic stuff you guys have drawn for me!), but I'm just not as interested in this place as I used to be, and it's definitely time for me to move on to bigger stuff! And, assuming I've said all that needs to be said, I hope you see you elsewhere in the near(or distant) future! But, until then, bye everyone!

EDIT [8/31/13]: Contest is over! Results will be out later today or tomorrow! Thanks everyone who entered! :"D

--------------------------------------------------

EDIT [8/18/13]: By request, I've extended the contest's duedate a bit. The deadline has now been moved to the 30th of August!

--------------------------------------------------

EDIT [8/09/13]: A lot more entires are coming in a lot quicker than I expected, so the deadline has been moved to the 24th of August!

Sorry if that throws you off track, you can always ask for an extension if you want/need more time!

--------------------------------------------------

Alright. So, I decided to hold a contest. This is the first contest I've ever held, so my apologies if it's a bit unorganized. xD

--------------------------------------------------

Rules:

1. Character can be any species you want. Real, fantasy, or completely made-up.

2. No stealing other people's designs(um, of course).

3. Pre-made linearts are completely fine.

4. Please no traditional entires(I'll make exceptions if the color palette can be done digitally).

5. If you enter, please also make a journal or poll(or whatever) advertising this contest. You don't have to, but I'd really appreciate it.

6. I like this number(actually my favorite number is 3).

7. It seems that "have fun!" is always a rule?

8. Duedate for all entries is the 30th of August. Duedate may be extended if people ask for more time.

--------------------------------------------------

Some random stuff that you don't need to pay any attention to, but might be helpful:

a) I'm not very fond of drawing canines(for some reason I find them incredibly hard impossible to draw)

b) My favorite animals are cats(domestic/small wildcats), or anything with horns and hooves.

c) I actually really, really love horns.

d) Like you have no idea how much I love horns.

e) I mean, even just a cat with horns is better than a cat without horns.

f) You entry's chances of winning are increased by 1,000,000% if the design includes horns.

g) "Sparkle" designs are fine, just keep in mind that I prefer more natural coloring.

h) I seriously love characters with horns.

i) Clothes, accessories, pierces, etc. are all great, and can increase your chances of winning(so long as you don't go overboard).

j) Flowers are pretty.

k) Make it as simple/complicated as you want, but I don't prefer extremely over-the-top complicated designs(as it's a pain to draw those over and over). 

l) I need to stop before I run out of letters in the alphabet.

m) Horns.

n) It might sound like it, but I'm actually not that picky. At all. So just... Do whatever. I seriously do love horns, though.

o) i'm scared how many people are even going to enter hELP

p) I feel like I'm contradicting myself somewhere.

q) You honestly didn't have to read these.
