    No this was a randomized thing. People sign up and are assigned different people. It was kinda like a monthly secret santa.
    We all have our demons. If we're not fighting them, then we've befriended them.

    I was looking forward to it a little. I thought it was gonna be a big contest, but all it is is drawing peoples characters. Random people whose characters I probably won't like enough in the slightest to want to draw for fucking free. But I suppose I should expect as much from an event whose base is DeviantArt, hate to say. :/
    I see where you're coming from with that. The idea of art fight is that if someone attacks you, you attack back (in essence, an art trade but it gives people an incentive to complete their half). I don't get any commissions, so for me it doesn't matter that I'm doin' it for free. I think of it as a chance to practice and to get my name out there. Since I enjoy it, I'm gonna do it all over again for my third year.

    I agree with ya; their base being devianTART doesn't win them any points. It'd be even worse if their base is on FA -shudder-.

    Ah, I see. Well, that sounds pretty fun! Especially since everything's random, there's not the same people getting art from the same artists, heh.

    Only two? I feel like you're underestimating FA here. :v

    There's a reason why you art trade with only friends and people you don't mind trading with most of the time.

    And DA just have the function to make it easier to do those stuffs with some group managing the art trade well where the one hosting will assign participants to those close to their skill from the list instead of just throwing it around randomly.

    I'm curious as well. Pics?


    Unrelated to that, does anyone know what's going on with DeviantART, exactly? I know there was a thing a while back about copyright and plagiarism, but it seems like something else has happened now. Can anyone clue me in? :b

    So, I just found out that dA is struggling for money and that's why half of the paid staff got laid off and why they made this overpriced "core membershit". It's the most hilarious thing I've read in the past two weeks to be honest; deviantART has been ignoring it's community for years and karma is finally biting them in the ass. Personally, I hope this will end up being the fall of Rome but we'll see what happens.

    The "Doubled price" thing is for yearly where the discount was ridiculous in the first place. Month-by-month is still the same and considering that I just stick to month-by-month until the Christmas "Buy one give one for the price of one" (if they still have it this year) where I will just do a trade to get it for half price like usual, it's also still cheap for the features to come with that I really need. (like the subfolder for fiction purpose)

    And the star pretty much screams "I am important unlike you peasants" which is a +1 for me anyway.
