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.

Here are some awesome FREE avatars that you may use at dA if you +fav and follow whatever terms of use provided.

Candy Corn Avatar by xXMandy20Xx:thumb181683282:Bran Owl FREE ICON by AkaneDoku:thumb173010636:31 DAYS OF SCARE-FREE: Flask by kaitquefait:thumb181471582:Tablecloth Ghost - Free Icon by etNoir
Broken Heart by angelishiFREE witch hat avatar by IchirakuRamenGirl31 DAYS SCARE-FREE: Kitty by kaitquefaitBeheaded Zombie - Free Avatar by HardrockangelFloating skull avatar by HidesBehindThingsFree - Animated Halloween Icon by Rocket-Out:thumb179830771:

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!!! :woohoo: 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!!

Free Avatar: Moon Rider by FantasyStock

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!!

My experience is cat toys, crazy as it sounds... but toddlers love it!
Just feathers on a stick or a littl bell will be fine, and as always, silly faces from behind the camera!
