For those of you who are looking for a place to participate in a tournament soon there are three upcoming tournaments that I can recommend for you [in alphabetical order]:

You are an assassin.
You are working under an organization called: The Game 
The Game controls both sanctions and contracts. All freelancers are hunted down or convinced to be brought under the organization.
Within The Game, you are ranked based on experience such as confirmed kills, difficulty of jobs, and years spent in the organization.
The higher the rank, the more expensive your services become. The Game will provide you with juicier contracts. Though this means a more high profile mark, it also means a bigger payment.
This OCT will provide you with the Deviant Art equivalent of working as a professional killer under the watchful eye of The Game.
This is The Assassin's Dance!

Under Construction
A pendulum is a weight suspended from a pivot so that it can swing freely. That piece of your pendulum is your heart; keep it safe and it can only protect you once.Reach the peak of the world and hook your pendulum to the Original pendulum. You will receive your wish and you will go home. No need to know what happens next.

:icononce-dead-oct: [SEASON 2]

Under Construction
There is a black box in your mind. Here dwell the characters that you created, but never saw the light, or that you pitted against someone else, only to end their feeble existence in the shame of defeat.
They have returned hurt, angry, lonely… and they’re out for blood.
That is to say, yours.
Fortunately, we’ve created a place for them. A happy little hotel where they can make friends, eat, drink and train to their hearts' content... and engage in a little senseless violence. 
Here at the Once-Dead OCT, they will be encouraged to take up arms once again in order to regain their lives. Under the duress of lockdown, the characters must either complete their given objective, or kill everyone in the process.

We hope you enjoy! And please feel free to ask any of the above persons about their tournament! They'll be happy to give you the information you're looking for!

One last poll before my subscription runs out... Why do you think literature is less popular than visual art? 

16 deviants said You're hard put to it to hold people's attention with writing. They want something fast that is visually appealing and don't have time for long stories.
3 deviants said Most of the writing on dA isn't exactly good, so people don't want to sift through to find out what is.
No deviants said Literature isn't actually art. I don't know why they put it on dA in the first place. They should take it to a different place.
No deviants said It is just as popular. You're just running with the wrong people.
No deviants said It's something else. [Comment, Please]

I'm going to be making a sprite comic soon and for a 'teaser' I made this…

What do you think?
crazyshiro Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Professional General Artist
Too much black. Not enough contrast to create any sort of interest. The viewer has to look too hard to see that there's anything there at all.

Alright then, I've brighten up the image so how does it look?

Time for my creeper creep

I'll be commenting on "The Loneliest Valentine", "A Crazy, Beautiful World", "The Glass Elephant", and "Priest of the Black Moon"

Loneliest Valentine: This piece shows an interesting character position the reflects her emotions. It's very well laid-out and even without the title I can understand the pictures intentions. However out of the four pieces I feel like this is your weakest display. It's still good art, but the choice of colors in this piece send mixed messages. The shadow in the picture, (though dramatic) stands out and doesn't seem to blend well with the rest of the picture's shading. The green of the line art gets lost in the lighter shading of the character, making it difficult to tell where the strokes are. Perhaps if the images overall color scheme was darkened to put emphasis on the bright lights and match the harsh shadow she casts, the atmosphere of the picture would improve.

Crazy, Beautiful: I think picture is a much better step up to it's predecessor. The color scheme and atmosphere of this picture is captured fantastically. It's almost like you captured a moment versus drawing a picture. My only suggestion for this piece would be an observation on the rule of thirds. With both of the pieces main interests being on both sides of the page, I find that the gaping hole between the images is distracting and empty. By moving both images closer to the "third marks" of the page, the image will flow nicer and fill in the gap with little effort. (Hey, I'm guilty of it too. Notice how this piece flows better than this piece But regardless, this picture's overall effect is well translated and executed.

Glass Elephant: This picture is weird yet satisfying. The idea of it is thought provoking, and the image does more talking than the title. I think the shading and coloring in this piece was done very well, the glass looks like glass, and I can clearly tell it has huge muscles underneath. Really my only comment on it is how lazy the line art came out. Now I understand a lazy doodle as much as any artist, but with the amount of effort and care put into the coloring , I suppose I expected the same amount of effort put towards the out-lines. Otherwise, I think this piece is fun and different.

Black Moon: This picture out of the four is by far my favorite. I think the shading and color scheme blend together beautifully, while not taking away from the piece's line art. the minimal background contributes just enough atmosphere without distracting from the center focus. The character position is very fun, and captures personality even without seeing their face. The only thing that I would get checked out (as I assume it's a technical issue) is what's causing your gorgeous line art is become slightly discolored at full view. It truly takes away from the art (and if it's just my computer then that sucks 8T) Otherwise, excellent work.

Overall: Your style has a very sketchy quality that makes your pieces work in an interesting and different way, but sometimes it also works against you. Practice makes perfect, and I know that with every picture, you're one step closer to the amazing artist you're turning into.

But hey, that's just my two-cents
