Hello from the funny side...!

[A/N: Sorry I haven't posted in a while, or at least a while for me ^^and the last part was for a bit of his past, and stuff  so you will understand the ending more *¬* this may not be long, its 5am and I want meh sleep 0-0]

4639196-3697786387-latest by DubsterDubex(Btw this follows my story line, some parts are true like Igneel :( but the most of it is from my head, made for you :D
[3rd Person POV]

[Y/n] was walking down the streets of Magnolia re-thinking what Acnologia told him. 'I will be the Dragon King when Acnologia's time, is up. . . When is that though? Am I even going to be able to do anything? ugh' At this point he was fed up, walking down the street he didn't even seem to notice someone in front of him also walking the same way and then *BAM* They fell to the floor with a thud. ''S-Sorry I wasn't looking where I was going a-, [Y/n]?'' "Huh, oh hey Lucy, you alright, sorry I wasn't either, I was kinda busy thinking.'' You helped her up. ''No, no, its alright hehe, I hope I didn't train you away from them'' ''Nah, anyway where ya heading?'' As you asked Lucy was trying to avoid eye contact. ''U-um'' She stuttered think of a way to lie without you knowing. 'GAH, if he knows that I'm going to a girls night he might think something like we're judging them or, or-' Lucy was snapped out of her thoughts when you waved your hand in front of her face. ''Oh right I was going on a girls night with Erza, Mira, Myself, Levy, Wendy and thats  it really. Hehe. All we're doing is hanging out, really u-um NOTHING THAT WOULD BE ANYTHING TO DO WITH ANYONE BUT US!'' Lucy was freaking out. ''Um 'kay then, have fun'' [Y/n] walked off. 'Phew' was all she could think at the moment as she carried on.

[Little timeskip to you at the guild, brought to you by, Dancing natsu]

[Makarov's POV]

I sat at the bar, per usual while running thoughts through my mind, 'Tomorrow when everyone is at the guild, I will let them know' I gave a sigh, 'Because of the 1 year and everything the next Grand Magic Games are coming soon, and I need to pick people. But who?' Just then the doors opened and [Y/n] walked in. ''Hey Master, you OK you seem tense, got something on your mind?'' [Y/n] said while walked next to me. ''Oh hey listen, if I told you a secret that I will tell everyone tomorrow, will you keep it hidden until then?'' I asked, hoping he'd say yes. ''Sure'' He said, then I told him so no-one other than him could hear. ''I need to pick people for the upcoming GMGs and I have a problem 1;I don't know if we're ready and 2; We have about 5 months before then so if I picked now, I might be able to make everyone train for that time, but, I wont be able to fit in two teams, they ruled it out for everyone this year, making my choice harder.'' [Y/n] was just trying to process what I had just said ''Okay, I wont tell, but master, have faith in Fairy Tail, we're ready for anything'' [Y/n] smirked, and I was very proud of what he said. 'He doesn't just have the heart of Fairy Tail, he has the faith, and I may have just found my first candidate'.

[Erza's POV]

I was sitting with the other girls Lucy, Mira, Wendy and Levy when something hit me. ''Girls I just had a thought!'' They all looked at me ''What is it?'' Lucy asked ''Well if we could find [Y/n]'s favourite food and drink he might lighten up a bit, I noticed when hes around us he thinks before he says, well that way we can get him to lighten up and trick him to finding out who he likes, loves etc. you in?'' They froze as if thinking and then in unison Lucy and Mira said. ''GREAT IDEA I'M IN!'' I smirked.  ''Wendy, because your too young to date [Y/n] and Levy is taken, me, Lucy and Mira will be finding out. Okay?'' She nodded at what I said, Levy just sat there probably thinking about books.

[Levy's POV]

 'And now I know they really ARE crazy, *sigh* well this is gonna be "fun" for me and Wendy watching them plot away while we just sit here, scared if we say something wrong, then they make sure we can never walk again' I thought to myself, I looked at Wendy and she looked like she'd seen a ghost or a monster, when I looked back at Erza, Mira, Lucy. They looked like they we pur EVIL! With smirks. . .

[Wendy's POV]
 'I'm scared' is all I can think. ~.~

[A/N: Smallest chapter I HAVE EVER done, but it is rlly early in the morning and, this kinda fill you in on the fact, that the GMGs is gonna be a new Arc and also what the final Arc is. Btw.

I want YOU to pick who you wanna be with. So far the choices are  Erza Mira and Lucy so which ever you choose is fine. I would pick Erza, but because its your choice, you pick. XD]

(Sorry its short, its 5:50am right now. :Sleep: )

   King Kong and I contest
With  11,900 :points:
Welcome to my second contest
3 years ago, I held my first contest Draw Tom Ripley Contest in 2012 with total 39,600 :points:  That event still makes me poor but very pleased until now. =P 
In 2015, I am quite lucky in art. I won lots of points from many contests throughout the year.
Now I'm ready to hold a contest again and share 11,900 :points: to other artists.
This event is called...
Yes, the theme of this contest is about King Kong and a woman.
I believe that almost all of you have seen King Kong movies at least once from 1933, 1976 or 2005 version.
 So, this event is like 10 year anniversary for the last time we saw King Kong.
  A special Christmas present - ContestContest by Pendragon-Arts
A Special Christmas Present CONTEST!
I have a son who is now 28. He lives alone and has both Autism and Schizophrenia. He is both sad, lonely, and is forced to live a very isolated life. No one really understands the pain of being mentally ill and not able to fit in with society and even other people in general, unless you, yourself are, have a direct connection or relationship with someone that carries this themselves. Remember those who are alone for various reason or who have a hard time getting through the holidays each year for various reasons as you create and during the coming holiday season. Bless you!
10 years ago, when we were able to still live together, he dabbled for hours creating his various sketchings. He doesn't draw any more and I found a few of them that I held onto over the years and would like to help make his imagination come alive and make this Christmas special for him. He loves the mecha genre an

Customised Painting of Shoes

Fri Nov 27, 2015, 1:49 AM by Khallandra:iconkhallandra:

Community Week


Customising shoes has become a fun and trendy thing for artists to do. Whether it be an interesting fan design or a cute original, anything goes on the shoe canvas! Artists often use marker pens and paints to make their creation, as well as adding other elements like jewels and gems - customising shoes is no longer limited to the hard-to-work-with tube type fabric paints. This article has some of the starting points for customising a shoe.

Shoe Types

The most common shoe type to paint on is the canvas shoe, Converse All-Stars or Vans are common choices for this activity. There are also cheaper varieties that an artist can practise on before forking out the cash for the expensive brand names.

Any fabric shoe is quite suitable for drawing and painting on. Leather shoes and suede shoes are also an option, but are far more difficult and restrictive, and may take some effort to be comfortable with. Once comfortable, leather paints are available and can look just as great!

First of all, decide what material to work with and start hunting up some shoes and paints to try. Standard acrylic paints are not likely to work very well on shiny surfaces and may peel off, there are better media that bond to the fabric in those cases (leather-specific acrylic paint or dye). Here are some examples of different shoe material types and the awesome works these artists have done:

Practising Techniques

It is a good idea to practise painting skills on a similar fabric before tackling the shape of a shoe. Cotton linen or drill is a similar fabric type that is thick, has canvas-like texture and isn't that expensive. It comes in plenty of colours, so it can be easy to match with the colour of the final shoe that will be used. Draw out the design and practise the colours and techniques, writing down what works and what isn't so successful.

If practising spray-paint effects, try on an old t-shirt to see how the spray patterns work and how to blend effectively. For leather items, try finding a similar colour or thickness from a second hand shop (eg. a handbag or belt) to test out how the paints work.

Try wrapping the test fabric of choice around a cylinder to get the hang of painting on a curved surface. Leaving it sitting upright to dry may also show any bleeding or streaking as the fabric and paint dries. This can also give the test fabric a bit of a stress-test to see if any sealing or additional protective measures need to be used.

Finalising the Artwork

After practising for a bit and coming up with a unique technique and style it is now time to apply the design to the shoe. First remove any laces or mask any items that should not have paint applied, then start working on whatever transfer method worked best onto the test fabric, carefully apply to the shoe and start painting.

Once completed take some photographs of the new shoes in a well-lit location (bathrooms are great for this if they have big windows to let lots of light in). Overall and detail shots are useful when displaying the new creation.
