THERE'S NOTHING RIGHT ABOUT THIS CURSED VERSION

18 Sep 2018 54
IT GETS WORSE AND WORSE. YOU'LL FINALLY UNDERSTAND WHY IT'S CALLED DOGTOWN. EVERY CAT HAS TURNED INTO A DOG. EVERY HAT, EVERY HAND IS A DOG. EVERY DOG HAS GROWN AN EXTRA DOG ON ITS BODY. MADNESS IS EVERYWHERE.



Anyway, as I promised, I ran the first part through Deep Dream generator and I wish I could unsee some of it. I guess, Halloween came early this year.
 


You can grab it at Gumroad ->  CURSED DOGTOWN.
It's free, unless you want to generously tip me as a thank you for suffering through the process of making this abomination.

Something dead, something reanimated, something newish, something green.

Dead

It is official. DreamDB's Facebook page is a zombie now. I announced its death and pinned this to the top of the page:

Honestly, let it rot. Just look at the stats. The page has nearly 2800 likes. Okay, not all of these people will actually see what I post. But this is the real number of people who see my posts across a few months:

This is pointless. POINTLESS.

REANIMATED

Finally I found time to restore old pages from DDB, which were made years ago, depended on a really outdated piece of code. I thought the would be a pain in the ass to remake, but all of a sudden last years of coding socks and whatnot flexed their skills, shoved my fears aside and I reanimated everything in two days. And, I mean, literally reanimated. Took old assets, ported them into other software, recreated frames, rewrote code. They're all fresh and new. For now.

Something newish

Evil spirits of coding have possessed me again, we spent a few days hanging out and conjured a beast. That is the STICKER PICKER. Das right. Everything is explained on that page. Basically, I didn't expect that people would want to pick different stickers from different themes and offering only pre-made sheets was clearly limiting as fuck to you folks. So I decided to give you an opportunity to combine a sheet from whichever ones you want. You can also buy pre-combined sheets and individual stickers from that page.

Something green

I've decided to stretch my grabby arms and occupy some space on Webtoons. I hate that it allows only jpegs, and only 800 px wide. But I love how even those few pages I uploaded immeadiately got some attention. That's awesome! I started with adapting Habits, but I guess all of my stuff will be found here.


Stickerz giveaway

Hooray! Finally.

All of these stickers were crafted lovingly overnight many evenings of hard work, and they're already available through my Gumroad page!

The reason why I chose to do this is simple: sales through online platforms bring me only a few cents per sticker, while if I sell these myself, I'll be able to offer them at a lower price, cover printing costs AND earn more. As a broke ass artist, I'd appreciate you buying them from me directly. All of the money is usually spent to pay for hosting (◡‿◡✿)

Now onto the GIVEAWAY RULES:

  • Available worldwide.
  • You must be ready to provide a postal address and a name to which I'll send an envelope.
  • Prize is 1 (one) sheet of stickers, size A5. You can pick one sheet from examples below OR pick 5-6 favourite stickers within one theme (say, you want just Penguin themed stuff) and I'll make a custom sheet for you.
  • You can enter multiple times through the following channels: Twitter, DeviantArt, VKontakte, Instagram, Tumblr.
  • There will be one winner per each platform. If there are less than 10 FIVE people participating per platform, then giveaway will be cancelled on that platform.
  • Winners will be announced on June 30.

Specific rules per platform:

You don't have to enter using all of these (but you can). Here's what you need to do:
  • Twitter: you must be following @dreamdbmirror, you must retweet giveaway announcement (quotes don't count).
  • DeviantArt: you must be watching ajcrwl, comment on a giveaway announcement and I'll give you a number. Winner will be picked with a random.org number generator.
  • VK: you must be following dreamDB, you must share the giveaway announcement post.
  • Instagram: you must be following @ajcrwl, you must like the giveaway announcement. post 
  • Tumblr: you must follow dreamdb and share the giveaway announcement post.

The reason why there are so damn many places is because I post stuff everywhere, and I wanted to give everyone a chance to participate. If any of these places fails to be interested enough, I'll be very sad.

Info about the prize:

Printed by myself, on a high quality sticker paper, cut out manually by hand. Each sheet is an A5 size. You can see pre-combined sheets below.
dreamDB theme: 1-3 are stickers related to comics and stories from this very website, 4 is specifically Dogtown themed.
Penguin Gotham theme: 5-6 are fanarts with Oswald Cobblepot aka the Penguin from Gotham.
Doctor No theme: 7 is dreamDB's Doctor Who parody comics.
JSaMN theme: 8 is based on my fanarts for the tv show "Jonathan Strange and Mister Norrell", which had ravens and magic, so you know it's cool.

A winner gets a discount code for a Gumroad product which I'll send for free (at a price of $0, without any exchange of the monies). Pick one sheet from these, or 5-6 stickers of your choice from one of the themes, and good luck!

UPDATE

I added three more stickers to the Gotham pack! There are two new Penguins and one Mad Hatter.
