This giveaway is now closed. I'll be announcing the winners on the July 19th. If you're interested in who the winners will be check my profile on that date (tomorrow)
What you must do to be entered into the giveaway IF YOU ARE AN ACTIVE ARTIST ON DEVIANTART:
Add this journal to your favourites
That's it. No muss, no fuss. I'll enter the numbers dA records your favourites at into the random number generator at Random.org and we'll see what happens. You only have until July 18th to do this.
I'll run the numbers on the 19th. You will be disqualified if I find you commenting here, on my work, adding my works to your favourites, or watching me (my current watchers may enter without being disqualified), for I hope obvious reasons. I repeat do not watch me, comment, or add my works to your favourites. It will not help you.
May God's providence shine on you.
If you're down here I assume you like to read, you're going to the comments section to comment like I told you not
to do, or you really like points.
I will also do a door prize for a some extra points, a llama, and a sketch or line art. You do not need to add the journal to your favourites to enter the door prize. Simply do one or all of the qualifying actions listed below.The catch?
If you win the door prize, then you don't know which you're going to get (llama, sketch, or points), but you can decline any of them or ask for them to be offered to a friend. Also, there are more things you have to do in order to have better chances of winning, and things that will disqualify you from receiving the prize.
What will disqualify you from the door prize
Commenting on this journal (genuine questions are innocuous)
Commenting on on my work with short "I love this!" or "I hate this!" type comments
What will qualify you for the door prize
Giving meaningful critiques on my work.
Suggesting someone with whom you would like to split or give the door prize
Giving me a llama
I will not reveal my process by which I will pick the winners (there will be 3) for the door prize. You may enter both the giveaway and the door prize competition.
Good day to you all. Note: For the giveaway, if you are not an active artist, and your number is chosen during the giveaway, I will disregard it and choose another winner.
If you're an active artist, but* I don't like your art and your number is chosen, I will disregard it and choose another winner.
These rules apply to the door prize for only points, but the llama and sketch can be won by anyone.
*If I notice that a person is trying to endeavour to improve their art they will be considered for the prize. That's why I included 'or endeavouring to make better art' below, as in trying to improve upon their best. This clause has very little to do whether I like it or not, and more to do with stumbling upon someone who is making use of dA to improve.
I'm making these rules regarding artists because I would like a person to receive points who makes art I would enjoy. I personally find people who beg for points or participate on dA just for points without making art, or endeavouring to make better art, to be rather. . . obnoxious for lack of a softer description. As for the rules as a whole, I think giveaways should be simple, and having you fave my work (you don't like), or watch me (just to turn off all the nofications), or comment (just to have me delete them all) is very silly.
