The Points Giveaway is over and the winner is...



Randomgiveaway by ToySkunk

NyanOwloo !!!


Congratulations, NyanOwloo, I'll send you your 250 points right now. :D
P.S. The number selected was truly random, but I didn't realise that dA doesn't list faves according to date or even alphabetical order - it appears to be completely random, too? No matter which way deviantART lists faves, though, please rest assured that the random number generator could have picked any of you as the winner. If you're wondering, the max number I put into the random number generator was correct at the time that I did it, I think some people may have faved this journal after the deadline time, which is why the fave number is now higher!!

I will definitely be running more of these in the future, and contests too, so that it's not always just a case of blind luck, but skill, humour, etc - so everyone's got a chance. :D I realise that there were a lot of participants in this (more than I was expecting!) and I'm sorry that I can't give you all a prize, but do keep an eye out, there will be more opportunities.

Please do watch me (if you like!) so that you can keep a lookout for future journals about giveaways, contests etc. :)

And you'll get a llama too! :la:



Other things that are happening or have happened

Mustelids and Mephitidae by ToySkunk

I sketched some mustelids and mephitidae at hospital

Dollies by ToySkunk
I uploaded some traditional work. This is an abnormal occurrence because I am deeply fussy about what goes in my gallery. :(

Ilqualme by ToySkunk
I do commissions and stuff if you're interested. Here is one.

Geometric Waistcoat WIP by ToySkunk

And I am sewing this geometric thing that is made up of millions and millions (okay... exaggeration - it's actually hundreds and hundreds) of pieces. Whyyyy


Also I just changed my username :fear:

I used to be Foxbane. And now I am ToySkunk. 

Because I chose 'Foxbane' when I was like... 13... as an internet username.

It's now 10 years later. I'm 23.
And keeping a username that you thought was cool when you were 13 is just sad.
'ToySkunk' might also be sad. But don't burst my bubble. It's stuck there for at least 6 months.

Everyone seems to have been very enthusiastic about this! I'm afraid that the giveaway is over now and NyanOwloo was the winner, but please look out for more giveaways in the (near!) future for more chances. :D I'll be doing contests too so it doesn't always have to be blind luck - I may do one for funny comments, pictures, all sorts of things. :)

What do you call a nun in a wheelchair?



Virgin mobile.






Why did the chicken cross the road?




Well, it wanted to get to the other side, but it saw a dairy queen so it went there instead and bought ice cream.



In other news, I'm a huge nerd with stupid jokes.

:XD: haha, thank you thank you! :iconbowplz:

I've never really had Nugger in a biscuit, n'or do I know if it taste good. But over her a biscuit can be known as two things; one a normal cookie like thing, and two a crunchy bread-like thing. So I think it would taste that bad, considering it's in a bread-like thing, but I dunno. :meow:

I got the song from here --> www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mmdc9R…

Why not try? There is always a possibility: D

And now, let's start with the nonsense comment!

Looong time ago, in Gotham city, there is a boy..called Harry Potter,  and when Gandalf came to his house
to tell him that he was a Time lord, Harry fainted.

I hope you like cat stories!

I have two of them, one Shortie, and one Fluffie. Shortie likes to lay in boxes. So I save boxes from the grocery stores to let her have. So I bring her a smaller then normal box one day, and she laies in it like normal. Fluffie sees her having fun and being cool in her box and decides to spook her.

Needless to say, in 10 minutes I had Shortie hiding in the bathroom, Fluffie laying in the box, and mail on the floor everywhere.

Anyways, faving!

I'll post another journal about it (I was going to message people individually, but boy are there a lot more entrants than I was expecting). Best of luck, it is like a lottery, which is why I want to do more in the future so people get more chances. I want to also do contests so people have a chance to win for skill (art, funny captions, etc - so everyone has a chance!).
