News About AVATARS!
Halloween is on October 31, and there's tons of great stuff going on to celebrate at deviantART. Don't forget to check out the listing of events below if you're interested in winning some contest prizes.
Despite my fascination with free avatars, I am NOT the GM for icons. Please send your avatar DD suggestions to BurgerBunny. I am but a lowly fan. I do, however, accept DD suggestions for DDs concerning dA's stock and resources galleries. There was a bit of confusion about this because I gave out a few avatar DDs. This was because the magic Bunny was away, and she asked me to feature a few avvies while she was gone, but she's back now... So please send your avvie suggestions to her.
It was a real honor to get to play avvie GM for a few days! (Please note, the aren't all free! Read descriptions before stealing anything!) These are the avvie DDs I featured:
Also!! I got a DD!!! Holy cow!! I'm not entirely sure how that happened, and I should have mentioned this earlier, but a thousand thanks to BurgerBunny for the wonderful surprise!!
I'm super proud of that little avvie now!! Thanks to my visitors for all the supportive comments!!
UPDATE: My New JOB!!!!
I'm not quitting as a GM, but I may be even quieter than usual... I got a job! This is my first paid position as a photographer at a professional portrait studio. I have a LOT to learn, but I'm super psyched. I get to use an awesome camera, and I'm learning a bit about lighting... And they're paying me! How crazy is that?!?
I'm still new, and I feel like an idiot. It's part time, seasonal for the holidays. The pay isn't great, but the experience is going to be nice. Please wish me luck! Also, any advice for making kids smile would be vastly appreciated! Making toddlers look at the camera and smile is like trying to herd cats!
I'm rather behind with commissions; please be patient with me!!
