The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes.

The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.If you wish for real-life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.Step 2.Surf aroun

Almead Contest Winners!Hey! I'm back online, time to announce winners *u*first, comments!I love the color scheme for Eskella here, and also her very fitting figure! I love the thick hair of Eri and her all jewelry! She has just gorgeous and perfect body, very suiting to character!Awesome idea and perfect representation for clothing design theme. It's very matching to the character, I totally see Aaia wearing such stuff. Also, character itself is really well drawn!Very sexy and beautiful piece! Also has perfect cold colour scheme for Eskella. I love her pose and perfect face!What a cutie she is! I'm surprised it was drawn by dA Muro, cause I know it's hard to work with. I'm happy artist remembered about her hair sticks! Awesome picture that had my instant love. This represents all girls just as they exist in my head. Also, the outfit that Erinel has is plain gorgeous.

How to be popular on dA? +Question to good people.I've been asked few times "what did you do that you became popular?". And I don't know what to answer due to simple problem. The thing is.. I'm not popular at all! When saying "popular" I think about people who have few million pageviews, get 5-10k favs on every piece etc. This is popularity! What can I say about popularity at that level I'm familiar with? I'll try to explain it in few points.First? Remember that deviantART is COMMUNITY! Come on, spend some time to go around this page, comment on other people's stuff, make some friends! Of course do not try to befriend people just to get benefits from it, it doesn't work that way! The best explanation? Have fun! Spend more time on dA than 2 minutes just to check your inbox. The more you're involved with dA community the bigger chance that you will get noticed! "Forunth watches 3,082 people, while 918 people watch Forunth." <-- see?Other thing, originality. Let's imagine, you have drawn portrait of a random woman with pencils

HospitalHello. I'm Forunth's boyfriend and I was asked to post this info, so her friends wouldn't worry about her. She is in hospital for couple of days. I can't say why she is there, please don't ask about it. I'm sure she will be back soon. I will upload some scans she asked me to upload today and tomorrow, but I'm deviantart noob, so it will take me some time to understand how to do it properly. I'm sure Foru will be happy to read some good wishes for her, she deeply needs it.Dawid, Forunth's boyfriend.
