My 1st Steemmonsters Win

It's a celebratory and historic day, and one which steemmonsters fans and steemians in general would have been excited about. Yes, the gameplay is finally open for all to participate, and personally for me it's been a fun ride so far with lots of learning as well

Want to see the first steemmonsters' first ranked game that @jznsamuel played? Well they're sharing it in this post. Have you gotten into collecting steemmonsters yet? No? Maybe you should...


Portrait Drawing For Birthday Gift

This time I want to share a work that I made a few days ago that was a portrait drawing of a request by my friend as a birthday gift. I made it for 3 days using the drawing grid method. Grid drawing is one easy method of drawing for beginners by creating a square box with a scale that we have set. So it is very easy for us to determine proportions by likening it to the picture we have made in the box

WHAT a great drawing @huslein.slash has created! Guess how long it took him to draw? I never would have guessed.


Mea Culpa

I have often seen this Latin phrase translated as through no fault but the above translations are more accurate, because the emphasis is that I (mea) am taking on the blame. In this case I am guilty!
So what did I do wrong? Of what am I guilty? Don't panic, friends. I have not committed any crime or knowingly wronged anyone, but I did realize just in time that I had self-plagiarized! “How on earth can one plagiarize one's own work?” you may rightly ask! Well, I am glad you did ask!

Oh no! Did @dmcamera really plagiarize... herself? Yes... that seems to be the case.
Stop over and let her explain what happened and how to prevent an incident like this happening to you too!


My Nephew's Mona Lisa- Not Photoshopped

In my previous post ( I mentioned how I was in Washington DC for about a day and a half. I knew I wouldn't be able to shoot everything so I had to be selective (due to the time constraint).
So I decided to bring my Pixelstick with me to create some dramatic light painting images at night with my newphew.
We shot several images in front of the Capitol building, the Washington Monument and this image was taken in front of the Lincoln Memorial

UH-OH! guess who got detained by the Secret Service? Yup! You guess it! @mikeycolon. Stop over to see that happened after taking this fabulous picture of the Lincoln Memorial.


Health Or Lifestyle Tips?

In a recent discussion about healthy and diets - none of my friends agreed. There was a robust discussion and it lead to the conclusion that there are as many diets and ways of eating as there are opinions. There are no guarantees that one will never become ill if one exercises and eats healthily because there are so many perspectives and methods.
Many might agree though that it is a combination of a focus on body, mind and spirit. In any event it is a kind of journey. Below are some good habits one could follow. This list is by no means complete and it is certainly not a diet plan - but a way of life

So do you consider it healthy or a lifestyle change? Some people diet and have success, while other need to change their lifestyles; and ways of thinking about food, to be successful. Your thoughts?

Dear Qurites,

We know times are tough now and we all have to push a little bit harder. We came up with two programs that will help you earn some extra upvotes and visibility from Qurator, and will also help Qurator to reach more Steemians/your friends that need some extra help.

Write a post about Qurator.

Our long time members know how it all works. You have been with us through thick and thin.

Share your experience with your friends and followers. We would love to know how our members see Qurator and what they like (or don't) the most about the project.
Feel free to write in your own native language. We are open to all languages and have already translated our main Qurator post to several languages.
Well written posts will receive some extra upvote love from Qurator and a resteem. :) Feel free to drop your post link in our Daily Qurator comment section, so we don't miss it.

Steemauto Curation Trail

The new curation trail is active and running! If you would like to support your fellow Qurites or just earn some extra curation feel free to join our curation trail that is active on Steemauto.
Steemauto guide and registration info

We suggest not following the trail with 100%, steemauto has 2 ways of following a trail, static or scaled. We suggest using SCALED instead of static since static votes can add up quickly and drain VP very fast. We suggest using scaled and then maybe around 25%.

Steemauto can show us who is currently on the trail and at what percentage. Looking forward to see more Qurites joining the trail in the near future! We also reward the team players and there might be a nice surprise for a lucky trailer. =P
