I hope everyone had a great 2015 and I hope everyone will have a great 2016 and beyond! Sooner or later, we'll get around to another tournament.
Here's to the future!
WIFL PostponedI'm sorry for this, guys. But my job has informed me that we're going to have and unusually high volume of work for the upcoming holiday season this year and offered me (essentially) unlimited overtime between now and the end of January. It's an opportunity I can't turn down and with the printing work that's already started coming in, I can tell you I'm going to be too busy to manage another WIFL tournament right now. I really am very sorry, you guys.
I know a bunch of you have been following me for a long time and will understand my circumstances. But for those of you who don't know me very well, I apologize for making a terrible first impression with you.
Update: Still need lots more Battle Artists!Update: We currently have six volunteer artists to illustrate battle art for WIFL. Fortunately most are willing to do 2 or more. We will need at least 20 illustrations to be covered. Please let me know if you're willing to do an illustration.
Battle Art Illustrations So Far:
Now we need volunteers to illustrate WIFL's "Battle Art"! This is always my favorite part of the tournaments. The way it works is I mark you down as an illustrator. Once the characters are paired off, I'll send you a note with two character ref pages and you illustrate those two characters battling it out however you like. Here are several examples from previous tournaments to give you an idea:
16 Contestants! Time to submit your characters!We currently have 16 participants. That is enough to have a full tournament with nearly twice as many rounds as usual, taking the "Losing Matches" into account. I personally don't want this tournament to be particularly enormous because I simply don't have the free time I used to with the old tournaments. So unless I start getting a lot of sudden requests to join, I think we'll just stick with 16 for this tournament. (And who knows, maybe it will generate enough interest to have another one before long.)
So that means this is our roster for T6! Now it's time for you guys to choose the characters you want to enter into the tournament. Please post a comment on this blog entry with a link to a good reference for this character. That linked image will be what the artists will refer to for the Battle Art.
01. :iconsmithandcompanytoons: - TINA
02. :icondanlei: - VALO
03. :iconhankinstein: - FELIX
04. :iconbluebottleflyer: - FLYER
05. :iconssbfreak: - OLIG
06. :icongus-val: - LADY GEGE
(UPDATE) WIFL T6: NEGATIVE MOUNTAINUPDATE#2: Here's a brief explanation of what makes T6 different from previous tournaments:
UPDATE#1: If more people don't join, we'll just go one with 16 members. The tournament will still work out with 16 people, just with one less round. I personally wouldn't mind a smaller tournament this time. What do you guys think?
I'm still putting together the new rules and setup for the next tournament and am currently accepting entrants. I wanted to know how many people wanted to join before I sent out invitations to former members because I think it's only fair that current WIFL members should be allowed first entries.
This tournament is going to be limited to 32 players. There are still plenty of slots available so if you want to enter, let me know in the comments. You can also extend invitations to your own friends if you like, if they've never entered one before. I will post new INTRO information and RULES information soon. This one's going to be slightly different from

a WINNINGisforLOSERS Trading Card Game?(It's been a while. Here's a journal copied from my personal journal, but it's relevant here.)
What do you guys think of creating a WIFL trading card game? Would you be interested in having your character be part of a game in the vein of Magic the Gathering or Yu-Gi-Oh? It's an idea that I've been batting around for a while, mainly trying to think of an idea for a "Simple Complications" card game, but recently some folks have been showing renewed interest in WIFL and I thought "What if it had everyone's characters in it?" I'll obviously have to get permission from a number of folks, but think there's potential in it. I suppose it would be similar to Magic the Gathering in a lot of ways, but with a much MUCH simpler set of rules. It would be a team effort between a number of creators, but I think it would be worth the effort. What do you think?
I work for a printing company and if there was a enough interest in it, I could probably have a few dozen decks printed and boxed.
WIFL's 6th Anniversary!Hi, guys! It's been a while. It just occurred to me that in one week (October 23rd) WIFL will be turning 6 years old! We've had a lot of fun in those six years, as impulsively as the tournaments would come and go. I'm not announcing any new tournaments or anything right now, but I'm confident we'll get one together again before too long.
Instead, I want to invite those of you who still want to be involved with WIFL to participate in the 6th Anniversary Celebration by submitting your characters in a Halloween costume based on another character from WIFL's past tournaments. It can be anyone! The whole point is to celebrate each other and each others' characters! It just so happens to be close to Halloween!
I created a folder titled "6th Anniversary Costume Party!" for you to submit your illustrations. There are no prizes or anything. Just the opportunity to get reacquainted with old and new friends.
Happy Anniversary and Happy Halloween!
It's too quiet here.Really, it is. I mean, when was the last time anything was initiated? Over a year ago from that OC/FC character tournament? I mean, the reason I joined was because this group seemed to be a fun place where everybody could introduce their individual characters, do fun collabs, and have great events. It's was kind of like Super Smash Bros, but for artists' original and even fan characters.
I get that the founder and co-founder may be busy with other things and such, and I'm not asking to be incharge, but I just think it'd be great if we could all do another event of sorts. I was thinking another battle of the characters, but maybe some of you guys have some suggestions that you could throw in? Or just...not care to bother even reading this.
A guide about referencingWe are a group of artists that have noticed there's widespread confusion and misconceptions spreading about the limits and ethics of referencing, so we have decided to help the community by clearing up the idea of what referencing is! -- You can also watch a video about it, just click here!
What is referencing?
When we talk about “referencing,” we could also talk about “searching for information.” Imagine that you have to do an essay for school about plants, animals, planets, in other words, a subject you don’t know much about. What’s the first thing you do before you start writing? Search for information about that subject, either on the internet or books, or ask your family and friends.
In the art world, referencing is exactly the same. It’s recognizing your lack of knowledge about a specific thing and seeking knowledge about the subject, so that you know more t

http://sicksonas.deviantart.com/ JOIN THAT AND SUBMIT UR SICKSONAS, YEAH????
they're basically a vent character, you make yourself a sona that's your sadness, your anger, your ugly, whatever.
It's a character that you can beat up, abuse, draw gore of, because that's their purpose. It's for venting (or when you want to draw gore lmao, i just like sick-looking ponies)
THEY CAN HAVE RASHES, DRIPPING NOSES/MOUTHS,RABIES,FAMINE-LIKE CHARACTERISTICS,BANDAGES, MUTATIONS SUCH AS THREE LEGS OR TINY ASS PEGASUS WINGS (which are my sick-sona's thing, and while i dont copyright those, it'd be appreciated if you didn't use that trait uvu) OR ANYTHING ELSE GROSS/WEIRD. USUALLY THEIR MANES/TAILS ARE DROOPY, AND THEIR COLORS AREN'T REALLY VIBRANT, NO NEON COLORS RLLY.
THEY CAN ALSO BE UNDEAD, SHOWING THEIR INSIDES OR BONES, THEIR EYES CAN BE GONE AND THEIR TEETH CAN BE SHARP. GET CREATIVE. USE YOUR BIGGE

New llama levels and Badge Pages! Fellow llama herders!
You may have noticed that today is a momentous day in the field of llamas. Due to their unexpected popularity, we have decided to tweak the llama levels a bit, in order to maximize fun and fairness for every deviant around -- from llama aficionados to those who simply dabble in llamas from time to time.
What llamas? Glad you asked!
Behold, the new breakdown of llamas! (If you dislike spoilers and wish to achieve the levels by pure surprise, then keep scrolling.)
= 1 (Llama)
= 10 (Super Llama)
= 50 (Albino Llama)
= 100 (Super Albino Llama)
= 500 (Ninja Llama)
= 1,000 (Fancy Llama)
= 2,500 (King Llama)
= 5,000 (Spartan Llama)
= 7,500 (Wizard Llama)
= 10,000 (Golden Llama)
There you have it! So many awesome reasons to stay connected to the community and to search out new and undiscovered deviants. Share the wealth, my friends. Share it.

DeviantArt and Angry MobsDue to the nature of DeviantArt it is quite easy to perceive that there's "a lot of people" who are upset with any given thing, enough so that you could even believe that "everyone" believes the same thing.
I felt that perhaps the community would like me to explain how DeviantArt views these types of things.
First of all, DeviantArt, Inc. is extremely deliberate. We don't do anything accidentally. Everything that hits the community is the result of a team collaboration that usually take weeks or months to complete. And so when we make mistakes they are felt by a group here or by our whole team.
Things you should know:
First of all you must believe that our team is 100% motivated to ensure that DA is healthy, and that decisions we make turn out to be better than how things were before. Each decision is likely to affect different pockets of people, and so you will always see the group that's unhappy pool together. The happy group is happy, so they don't tend to band toget
