Sooo here we are for another giveaway. It’s sooo funny to hold giveaways. I should find the way to host one every now and then for free
Some news before explanations and rules. (yes, no one will care my news, but I’d like to write something
Thanks to a friend, now I have at least a decent homepage on my (never used ) website: www.adaman.it The "under construction" page has been removed and now there is a fantastic script showing a random selection of my photos - all taken during cosplay fairs or private photo set. Click on a photo to start the fullscreen view.
I want to cry, it's really beautiful I could not have done it without the help of Bob, the Chessmaster!
Speaking about photo sets, a note for italian cosplayers: I do photo set for fun, not for work - I dont want/need to be paid. So if you wish a photo set in some good location of one of your cosplay, and you are satisfied with my mediocre skill feel free to ask me. I live in north Italy, I'm happy to travel around
Parlando di foto set, una nota per i cosplayer italiani: faccio foto per divertimento, non è il mio lavoro, non voglio essere pagato. Se desiderate un photo set di un vostro cosplay in una bella location dalle vostri parti, e se vi accontante della mia mediocre abilità scrivetemi! Abito nel nord Italia, mi muovo volentieri in zona
(...oltre alla skill mediocre aggiungeteci anche tempi di pubblicazioni secolari
Works in progress
Atm I'm still working on Lucca Comics photos. Thursday to Saturday done, just miss Sunday. Half way done also the album for Eleonora and Giulia , then I need to work with the Eyeshield 21, Korra and Mako sets. And then finally Novegro Festival del Fumetto (fair done at the beginning of February).
Mantova Comics and Cartoomics in Milan are coming in march. I will be very busy ò_ò
Giveaway #3 - Support an Artist
Soon it will be (again) my birthday.
Young cosplayers in fairs have begun to address me with "excuse me sir" instead of "hi!".
I have become really old.
Anyway birthday is a good opportunity to make a gift, isn’t it? ^^
The Valentine Day Giveaway
was really a nice experience. I loved to read your comments. Thus, I had the idea to host a similar one - but this time, instead gifting some points to a person you love, you can gift a 12 month premium to an active artist on DeviantArt who, in you opinion, deserves to be supported - and could make good use of premium
To say it clear: you win the raffle – the 12 months pm prize will go to another account(s) of your choice. But do not worry, you will win something too: there are also 3 months of pm for the winner of the raffle.
How to enter
1) Fav this journal
You will receive an entry number. You can check your entry number clicking on this journal favorites, on the right2) Write a comment with the DA username you'll like to support
to mention him/her!
If you win, this person will receive the 12 month premium!
3 months pm for you also
It is not mandatory, but it will be very nice if you’ll write also why you'll like to support this artist, and link some of his/her deviations Even if you'll not win, don't miss the opportunity to show your love!
You CAN indicate anyone you'll like to support – but please: he/she must be an artist who is really using often DA and who cant afford a pm. Be nice
You CAN’T indicate accounts already premium, accounts with less than 6 months of life, plzaccounts and so
You CAN'T indicate yourself, but of course you are free to ask friends to fav and comment this journal indicating you. More people will suggest you, more chances you’ll have to win!
You CAN indicate up to 4 artists instead of just one. The 12 months will be divided (2 artists will receive 6 months each, 4 will receive 3 months... ).
Valentine Day GA teach me that sometimes make a choice may angering someone else
You CAN decide to renounce to your 3 months prize and give em all to the artist. (I will award then 15 months).
You can join until the 16th of march
Winners & prizes
On 17th march morning, as soon as I wake up
I will choose the winner via random.org. I’ll check his comment and give the premium to who has been indicated.
The winner will receive 3 months premium membership
The artist of his choice will receive 12 months
I will then update this journal.
If something is not clear or you are new to raffle like this, feel free to ask or check my previous giveaways:
600 Points Valentine Lottery [closed]Oh, well, it seems that February 14th should happen once a year.
I was about to start another giveaway at the beginning of the year, but return to work was heavier than expected... I was quite busy and I still have a lot of photos to process
My Album of last Lucca Comics & Games is only half done And I already done a photoset (Korra + Mako) and another great fair (Novegro Festival del Fumetto) I need more free time
Some other news: on 19th December I got another Daily Deviation!
Special thanks to :iconmrs-durden: and :iconhomunculus888: for having suggested my work

600 Points Giveaway [closed]It is since I’ve joined DA that I keep reading about those giveaway, raffles... They intrigue me, look funny! I’ve always wanted to hold one of them, sooner or later. Guess time has come
Why now? Well... I’ve just come back from Lucca Comics & Games - the best and biggest comics, games and cosplay fair we have in Italy. It reminds me when I was there last year and I had a bad car accident on my way back home. I don’t know how to describe it correctly in english.. my car got hit by a very big jeep from behind, the thrust was so intense it made my car tip over and land on the car in front of me, then rebounded several times on the road crashing sides of the car and the roof of my (at this point destroyed) vehicle. Fortunately I didn’t get any serious injuries, but I had to rest in bed for one month and for four months I have been away from fairs and events …
But - hey - I’ve been lucky, I'm still here, and back in action! Isn
I'm looking forward your comments to discover new talented artist unknown to me
I will try to host more giveaway/events as soon as I can. Keep an eye here on deviantart or on my facebook page
