Advice Needed: Extreme HeatHi all. So right now, I'm in California and the heat here is unbearable. Not only that, but the A/C (which didn't really work very well in the first place), broke completely and the people that fix it won't be coming for quite some time. Hopefully it will be within the next week or two, we aren't sure of the date yet.
I need advice. What is the best way to stay cool? Have any tricks? I'm am super dehydrated and dizzy and the dogs are struggling. It's actually hotter in the house, then it is outside. It's over 90 degrees Fahrenheit in here! I've been drinking lots of water, have ice, fans on. But nothing is working, its still so hot.
Let me know if you know any good tricks
What are your goals?I'm procrastinating doing a few things and would love to have some people to talk to I'm looking at YOU So tell me, what are your goals? On dA? In life? What do you aspire to do? How do you plan to achieve these goals?
Enjoy a little feature while you are here too

Looking for a few helping handsHi all! I'm currently searching for a few people that would want to help me out with my RecommendAFriend project. Things have gotten kinda slow at the group, and I think a revamp and a few helpers might breathe some new life into it.
I need people that are dedicated, hardworking, reliable and have some knowledge of writing articles/working in groups. If you are interested in helping out, please send me ( rainylake ) a note with the following filled out!
Article helper: This person will help me put together the weekly articles.

Back to square oneI apologize for my absence, but things have deteriorated to mayhem here at home. I'm trying to keep it together though, although whenever I log on, I can't seem to get anything important done.
For those of you who are keeping up with my home searching journey things have gotten bad. Very quickly.
I'm going to keep it simple and leave it at this. My old roommate has decided due to financial reasons, he can't move back in with us. Which I totally understand, but now we are screwed. We kinda put all our eggs in one basket and I have no idea how we are going to get back now. Weighing all the options and nothing seems very logical. I have millions of plans that might work, but none are logical.
The biggest question is, to follow one's heart, or think things through rationally?
He might still be able to get me work, but that leaves me with no place to stay until I actually get the job. No apartment wants to take a person in without work, even if Matt is going to be transferred, it
Hidden Talents #14I keep finding all these gorgeous artworks and I want to share them with you. All of these deviants are unknown/unappreciated, and could deserve more attention. Please be sure to visit their galleries and spread the love!
More of these journals will be published in the coming days, with only five deviants featured per article, so keep an eye out. If you know any deviant who is deserving of more attention, please note me their name
Back, 2 years, Wishlist Print and more!This journal entry will be a big mashup of info
Firstly, who got me this beautiful print? Show yourself so that I may love you
Also! My 2 year anniversary of this account was yesterday. I want to thank you all for an amazing two years. I'll be thinking up a new contest to celebrate soon. Any thoughts about this are greatly appreciated. I'm thinking maybe a scavenger hunt? Or would you prefer an artistic one? Let me know!
Lastly, I'm back from my mini vacation. Things didn't go very well. As I had feared, the trip was a cheap trick from my parents.
Basically they fucking lied about helping me find a home.
They brought me back to the only place on earth I want to be, and paraded me around town. Then randomly decided that they don't want to help me, even though on the phone they said they would. Not only that, but then they started looking for houses for them to move into...what a complete stab in my heart. :/
Recent Faves*Scheduled. I'm away on a trip!*
Enjoy some of my recent faves!

Protect yourself against fraudAlthough, as an active member of the community, it's nearly impossible to have missed this huge issue, I think it's very important to warn people for this.
What happened is a large case fraud in which apparently one user (under multiple names) scammed several members of DeviantArt community. Leaving some people as much as $3000 in debt!!! Money they, most likely, never see back.
Even though the user is banned by DeviantArt now, there's no reason why it won't happen again.
After all, the problem is caused by a loophole in PayPal's rules. So basically everybody that's using PayPal for its business (and that's a lot of us) is at risk.
People doing commissions
People selling adoptables
To understand where all of this comes from, it's first of all important to know what a PayPal chargeback actually is.
This video offers a proper explanation of what chargeback is, and what it should

Aaaaaaaand i am officially announcing that i opened pre-orders for my art book

Art and not giving upDear, deviantart fellow artists
As artists we are constantly self-aware and seek for improvement and support. But there are times when it feels like everything falls apart, when things go wrong and doubts overwhelm us.
But we have to stay strong and continue.
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
No one likes to fail. Yet, when it happens, we learn so much. For example – my first “inspiring” journal series where such a failure. But I kept going, as I have always had. As long as I can motivate, help and inspire others, through my journals or art, that’s what keeps me going. Also – things can go wrong all the time – the painting software could crash, ink can get accidentally spilled or It’s possible to unintentionally ruin the painting. It happens. Go through the struggle;

Art / Story / Comic Contest!
Ok, its time for an another contest. It have been some months since the last one, and im sorry for that, that goes to all my followers. Hopefully will I get more active again now. I did think for a long time for the theme for this contest, and I wanted something that's not used to much, but at the same time something everyone can use as an idea for their entry. I hope everyone like it. Its always hard to make a prize list to, that everyone is happy with. Some smaller prizes, and more winners, or a bigger prize, but less winners. Some people thinks "... why should I, I gonna lose anyway.. But wait, as much as 10 entries wins a prize, maybe i should join after all!," and others think "... Only 20$, no

Glitch's Clothing Design Contest (USD Prizes) Introduction
It was nearing time for the new term to begin, and as always, Glitch wanted to change his outfit...
After all, that one got a little wrecked in the tournament. Oops.
And why not? He would be earning his degree in Elementalism the next term, and who wouldn't want to look absolutely STUNNING for graduation? Surely not him, as looking into obtaining interesting clothing for graduation was a high priority.
This is a drawing contest where you design a new outfit for Glitch, the elementalism student teacher of :iconotherworlde:! He tends to change his outfit often and he's looking for a couple new ones to add to his closet. Therefore, your task -- if you choose to accept it -- is to design a new outfit for Glitch to proudly wear in the next term, when he plans to earn his academy degree.
Simply draw Glitch in an outfit of your design and you
