[PICS ADDED] Please read. ): Animal in need!

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 25, 2014, 12:01 PM
Wannyan's Journal ☆


Edit: HERE ARE PICS OF HIM NOW, HE IS VERY CUTE.
THIS BABY REALLY NEEDS A NEW HOME.

Sam 2017 By Geinkotsu-d8452md by WanNyan Sam 2027 By Geinkotsu-d8452la by WanNyan Sam 2028 By Geinkotsu-d8452l2 by WanNyan

There is a cat really in need right now that has been very badly cared for. I honestly don't even want to go into detail.. not that I know too much but the poor thing has been mistreated, not fed well or cleaned. Geinkotsu is doing the best she can to help the animal right now and has taken the cat from its owner, which is sadly her sister. ):
She kept him locked in her room and uh, shaved part of him because of shedding? But like all cats do that? Idk man, this girl.

I'm going to try and get a picture up asap, Gein is going to try and clean the cat up first.

He's 4 years old, Turkish Angora and Domestic Longhair mix and neutered. Also has had vaccination shots within the year

We're really trying to find a new home for this baby to get him away from gein's sis so he will be safe.
Please please, if you are willing to take in this baby and you live in Arizona, she lives in Phoenix, please contact us. ):

If you would like to know any further information just contact Geinkotsu or you can ask me and I'll ask her.

PLEASE HELP SPREAD THIS. WE REALLY NEED TO GET THIS CAT A NEW HOME.

I see the trailer from Five nights at Freddy's 2 and i'm really shocked about this. The old animatronics are broken and be replaced by new ones. The new animatronics are ALL GIRLs!!!! wtf.......

FNAF 2 Screenshots by Cucumba1
But i have a theory.......
Look on the map. It's a different map as from the first fnaf game. I think this is other pizzaria.It's bigger and has more places.
Sooooo now we look to the broken animatronics.....
You think really these animatronics.....

quick little screenshot edit by piepiepinkype
Really?!
Come on. These are not the animtronics from the first game!
Nobody can kill a animatronic.....
And the broken animatronics looks older and different......
The story begins with the pizzaria(fanf2) and the 1st generation of the animatronics play normaly in the pizzaria.....the children were scared of the animatronics, because they looks scary and the pizzaria needed to be closed......than started the story of Five nights at Freddy's in a smaller pizzaria with the 2nd genaration of the animatronics, the animatronics we all respect and love.
The pizzaria from fnaf2
celebrates a grand reopening with new animatronics, the 3rd genaration. The 1st genaration hide in the big pizzaria and comes only out, when it's night.......
We have not only 8 animatronics.....we have 12!!!
We have two pizzarias and 12 animatronics from 3 different genarations......

And everyone of this need your love! Don't hate them, love them!

Please share it to your friends and all do you know.

The animatronics need your help!!!

While I no longer take commissions, and never plan to again, I often get asked what to expect for my pieces when they go up for sale in my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/DragonsAndBe…. Prices are based on amount of time spent as well as supply and demand. Each of sculptures are completely hand sculpted without the use of any molds, and tediously crafted to be as smooth and perfectly symmetrical as possible. I have spent several years perfecting my craft, and I feel that shows in each little critter I make. I am a perfectionist when it comes to my sculptures, so you can be guaranteed only the best craftsmanship and highest quality.

I try to offer a wide range of items in each sale, to give everyone an equal chance no matter their current financial situation.



Scrap Dragons: $35-40 

Simple and sweet, these are my most budget friendly option, and I try to make a batch every month or two. 
Sometimes I make them with babies, and that can nearly double the price, as I have to make a tinier, but just
as detailed baby. You basically pay for two scrap dragons that way. 
I also occasionally make micro dice dragons, but they are the same amount of work only smaller
(which can actually be more difficult)
*Scrap Dragons are called as such because after my bigger projects I have lots of small scraps of clay left. 
If they aren't big enough for another regular dragon, I use them to make these smaller guys!*

Scrap Dragons June 8th by DragonsAndBeastiesMicro Dice Dragons by DragonsAndBeasties  Mama Scrap Dragons by DragonsAndBeasties


Small Dragons: $50-70

Similar in size and design to the scrap dragons, but with more details. Wings, painted eyes, spikes or simple manes, and sometimes plating.
Some props may add a bit to price.

Medium Dragons : $70- $120

Usually a step up in size with more detail, sometimes paint jobs, and more unique poses and props.

Sculptober: Curly by DragonsAndBeasties  Sculptober: Cozy by DragonsAndBeasties  Baby Butterfly Dragons by DragonsAndBeasties  Tiger-Striped Dragon by DragonsAndBeasties


Dice Dragons: $70- $140

These generally follow the same guidelines as the rest, but they have dice! They are almost always removable, unless the die is
being used for structural support. These are some of my most sought after dragons, as D&B is the original Dice Dragon creator

Deluxe: $150- $250+

Anything considered "deluxe" has taken at least 10 hours of work, though it is often much more than that. The magma dragon took over 40! I often lose track
of exact hours after the 10 hour mark. These are the sculpts I fuss over and make sure every little detail is exact. These are the ones that keep me
up well into the wee hours of the night, because they have to be perfect!
PLEASE NOTE: These are the sculpts that often go up for auction on Ebay, though a few make their way into my etsy sales. They can be quite pricey,
but I price them much less than what they'd go for on ebay, so if you can snag one you've gotten quite a bargain!

Pairs /Couples / Wedding Toppers: $150 - $250+

Another of my most requested items is the dragon cake topper. I rarely make these, but a few will show up on Ebay from time to time. Other couples or pairs basically follow the guide above, times 2 (price per dragon) plus a bit extra if it is a tricky pose. Making two creatures interact successfully does take extra time.

Ponies/ Gryphons: $35-$70

The simplest Scrap Ponies are the lowest, but the fluffy gryphons and flying pegasi go for more.

Hybrids Dragons: $80 - $150

Hybrids take a lot of planning, and often take longer than my regular dragons. They can range quite a bit, and the 
more complex ones usually go up on ebay. 

Sculptober: Bug by DragonsAndBeasties Dragon Rats by DragonsAndBeasties  Drakkensteed by DragonsAndBeasties  
Cat Dragons by DragonsAndBeasties Big Cat Dragons by DragonsAndBeasties


Rats: $20- $40

I don't make a lot of these little guys, but when I do they are pretty affordable. I can make them much faster than dragons!
No wings or spikes or any of that nonsense. Price can go up a bit depending on paint job /markings though.
 Ratty Magnets by DragonsAndBeasties Sculptober: Candy by DragonsAndBeasties Four little ratties by DragonsAndBeasties


Other: $40-$150+

I really tend to stick to dragons most of the time, but every once in a while I'll throw in a random beastie. These range from very simple to deluxe range! 
Otter by DragonsAndBeasties  Pink Bunny by DragonsAndBeasties  Mama and Baby Fox by DragonsAndBeasties  Sculptober: Supernatural by DragonsAndBeasties  Sculptober: Monster by DragonsAndBeasties   



SHIPPING COSTS:

Most items ship for roughly $3 or less within the United States.
International shipping can be as much as $15. Both of these rates are based on first class shipping fees.


PAYMENT:

I accept payment via Paypal or credit card through my Etsy shop. I do not accept checks or cash by mail. Ebay uses paypal as well.

My ETSY SHOP can be found here: www.etsy.com/shop/DragonsAndBe… The shop is always empty because of high demand, but I always announce here on DA as well as on FB when I will be having sales. My Facebook is here: www.facebook.com/dragonsandbea…

My Ebay is: www.ebay.com/usr/dragonsandbea…

PLEASE do not ask me to "make an exception" for a commission request.

I get several people a week asking me to make "just one exception" and I will just say no. I know it sucks that I'm not doing requests anymore, and I do feel for all of your situations and the people you want to gift things to for various reasons. But there is no fair way to choose who gets one and who does not. I hate saying no, but I cannot make exceptions. Thank you for understanding.

Please think before you post mean comments about the pricing. I have spent my entire life honing my artistic skills and over 4 years building my business from nothing. I work waaay harder than I ever did at any "real job" and make far less money. We are all artists here, or at least art appreciators, so please be kind. Don't we all hope to one day make our passion our career? Too many artists are put down for charging what their work is worth because people have this crazy idea that an artists should do this stuff for free because it is "fun". Art is fun, but it's also a ton of work. It takes a lot of diligent practice and training to be great at it, and that skill level is what is being paid for. At the end of the day, art is a luxury item, not a necessity. I love art and wish I could own more of it, but my disposable income doesn't allow for it, and that's fine. It's a want, not a need. I still appreciate it and whole-heartedly support the prices set by the artist. I don't hate them for being out of my price range. It just means I have to save up like everyone else to buy something pretty. :)

Why can't bronies be widely accepted?

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 25, 2014, 2:21 AM


Just sharing a post I made on Facebook here.

"
Sometimes I wish bronies were widely accepted. I mean, don't get me wrong, Frozen is a great movie but it was badly rushed in some parts, contains more of romantic love than its actual theme (family), and has a lot of plot holes (I know a short is coming, but from the looks of it, it won't eplain any of the answers I look for), but look at it. It's been almost one year and all the hype hasn't died down a single bit. I'm not saying it's perfect and it has no haters/dislikers, but look at its fandom, it's widely accepted.

Sure, when you hear "ponies" it might sound, as people often call it, "gay", girly, childish--BUT that's just a common misconception about the show. It talks about not only friendship, but also situations that you can relate to real life, like family concerns (sibling-to-sibling hate/love relationship); it has relateable and realistic main characters; it is usually well-paced and while it hasn't revealed a lot about its past/history, there are still seasons to be released and a movie as well (so I wouldn't call it 'plot holes' just yet); and it's not as girly as you think.

Tell me, do dragons, manticores, a demon that wants to take over the world (and has a super freaky transformation), three sirens who have been banished to the human world but still have powers and has a more freaky transformation, a villain who is the entity of chaos itself, a villain who was so close to retrieving his previously fulfilled monarchy, a villain who feeds on love and defeated even the most god-like character in the show, and a villain sent to literal hell but escaped and grew into a humungous centaur who feeds on strength, flying abilities and magical powers and who was close to achieving his goal again, sound THAT girly and childish to you?

I don't see why you shouldn't at least respect it, if not give it a chance. You could accept One Direction, Adevnture Time, Wreck-it-Ralph, why not just accept this as well?

And why bash the others who like it? Seriously, what is wrong with liking this glob damn show? Have YOU even TRIED to watch some of the newer, better episodes? The answer is most likely no, so why are you so bent on your unfair judgement that it's "gay"?

It isn't as bad as it sounds, people."



I can't understand

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 25, 2014, 5:33 AM
Please, if someone could explain me... How can someone who edit and trace his/her works be talented? They don't draw their works... I can't see talent there.
Don't get me wrong, I respect people who use bases as long as they credit properly and have permission from the original artist.
But, in my understanding, a talented person is that one who has a special abillity for drawing. DRAWING BY ONESELF.

It's my opinion, and I need to express what I think.

Hi everybody! How about a contest and an art raffle this holiday season ???

After several months of drawing pages and pages of my comic. I decided to make a contest and an art raffle as a tribute to the JJ's boys.

It's really satisfying to know that there are many people who know them and like them, and for that reason these competitions are an incentive for more people to draw them for fun and sharing their drawings, plus an exchange for good prizes! Which will be
represented in points (1st place 3.500. 2nd place 1.500 and 3rd place 1.000 points) and drawing prizes!

:star: JJ BOYS CONTEST- MAIN THEME:

The main theme of this contest is to create a drawing that includes the characters from the JJ'BOYS trio: Hibiki / Benny; Shirou / Bully or Buddy and Shou / Bardo.

You can choose to draw only one of them or the whole team and it can be related to anything, as long as it is accurate to the characters, and it MUST BE age-appropriate and not too violent or mature.


:star:  DEADLINE: JANUARY 4th, 2015.

Start date: October 25th, 2014;
Deadline: JANUARY 4th, 2015.


:star: REFERENCES (Costumes and transformations):

Everyone knows the JJ'BOYS from both my comic and fanarts. They appear with a different set of clothes; from school uniforms, to casual outfits and two battle outfits

JJboys references by BiPinkBunny


You can choose any version for your drawing. Freedom of choice is something that encourages the creativity for all! But be careful: You have to be consistent with the characters and their individual styles!

:star: CROSSOVERS:

You can use a crossover theme (such as including a different character from the PPGZ, or another series, or even your oc).
But you have to keep in mind that the JJ'BOYS should be the focus in the drawing.

EXTRA REFERENCES:

Hey people! :D

Ever since the dA update, I've been getting far less views on my art. I used to upload new work and get at least SOME kind of page view spike or Watcher influx. Now, nada. It's basically as though I didn't upload anything at all. My stats are just the same as any other day. Anyone else experiencing that, too?

Is the new layout just not as kind to new uploads anymore? Because a lot of my views used to come from randoms prowling the Latest Deviation section and stuff like that. OR maybe people just stopped using dA altogether. Lots of people raged about the update. I wouldn't be surprised if users migrated to other sites.

And I mean, CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG HERE. Maybe my artwork just isn't as appealing as it used to be a month ago. I can live with that. At least then I know the reason for this.

If I'm right, and the update is what's causing this page view flat line, then it stands to reason that dA has now officially found a way to smother us smaller artists. There is no way for us to grow anymore, no way to expand our audience. And that's just balls-ass whack yo. I used to get 50-80 new Watchers every time I uploaded a pic.

Now that's just gone. :iconjontronsrslyplz:

Again, if I'm the one who's the problem, I'll be cool with it. B-) At least then I know whatever is affecting me isn't affecting you guys. :aww:

But do you guys think dA would pull this kind of "all in moderation" shtick? Maybe they're trying to get us all on a level playing field so that nobody gets big spikes anymore? Would you want that? :shrug: I'd really like to know what you guys think about this! :D

Windgate's Normandy 1163 by qannekke
It is not usual that a Nordanner catches my eye, but when one does, I am utterly and completely smitten, and in the past month the young stallion Windgate's Normandy 1163, owned by qannekke, has done just that. In part thanks to his owner's beautiful artistic style, and in part thanks to his unique chimera face, Normandy has already made several appearances in the HaRPG in a short amount of time, and gained popularity wherever he goes. From the Glow Run Show at TsonianFieldsRanch (still ongoing for those interested!), to the Bobwood Creek Color Extravaganza (Hosted by cheddarbug, also still ongoing), Normandy's face is gaining recognition, and I cannot wait to see where this elegant young jumper goes next!

Jozephina by olllga81
I’m sorry that we don’t usually feature Russian language HaRPG horses due to the language barrier, but I must bring your attention to a very special mare who will make it really worth your while to pull up Google Translate. olllga81 has many outstanding horses which all deserve to be featured, so it was very difficult to only choose one for this edition of the newsletter. I decided to share with you an example of her most unique creation, the Allavar Principe Equus breed (Allavar). A mixture of Andalusian, Friesian, Marwari, Arab and Akhal-Teke, the Allavar has a unique and striking posture, long legs and tall upright neck. The elegant smoke-coloured mare Jozephina is the first representative of this new breed. She has not been drawn for some time but you will find that she has a very well documented training and showing record if you choose to explore olllga81’s gallery. She has even been recreated in an incredible sculpture, see below. It is always commendable and heart-warming to see a HARPG horse so loved and illustrated so many times. Special care has been spent on Jozephina’s training and trust-building with her handlers. In temperament Jozephina is every bit as gracious as her appearance suggests. Loyalty is a characteristic of her breed, and she is extremely devoted to her owners, especially Meggy (Maggie) who has been Jozephina’s principle trainer. Due to good training and intelligence Jozephina can be ridden by Meggy with no bridle in the natural horsemanship technique. Courage and long legs make Jozephina primarily a cross-country horse, but she has also excelled in liberty and costume events with her stunning beauty, effortlessly taking two first place wins at these shows. But it is not for her competition record that I wanted to show you this mare. It is the uniqueness of her concept, and the attention to training and interaction with handlers that really makes this a stand-out horse in my mind. Overall this is a truly unforgettable mare with strong character and style.

How to Be Confident by SOLAR-CiTRUS SOLAR-CiTRUS has written a short but inspiring guide to cultivating a healthy attitude towards your own artwork. "Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow ... Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!" A real must-read for anyone in need of a little confidence boost. Thanks to Helsinge for pointing this one out to the community. ~oxpecker

:pumpkin: BOO! It's Halloween! :pumpkin:

Have your stable staff been spooked by any ghostly looking horses this month? We certainly have! But we also found some adorable outfits showcased by your horses for Halloween this year. Well done to all the stable staff who got dressed up as well. We hope they earned all the candy they deserve for these fantastic costumes (and shared some with their horses of course).

:bulletorange: Featured Equine Breeds :bulletorange:

Equine breeds; Humankind's unique spin on God's horse.

Coconino Cow Pony - Breedsheet by daggerstale :iconcoconinocowponies: If you need a new Western mount to spice up your stable, Coconino Cow Ponies are for you! These hardy little fellows from daggerstale are, as their name suggests, working cattle horses who make for excellent all-rounders. If English is more your thing, don't fret! They can do just as well in those disciplines. With an array of gorgeous colors and charming temperaments to match, what else could you possibly ask for?

The American Clay Horse -Breedsheet- *OLD* by 11IceDragon11 The American Clay Horse Main Breedsheet *NEW* by 11IceDragon11 :iconamerican-clay-horse:
11IceDragon11's American Clay Horse is an unusual supernatural breed inspired by Native American folklore. These horses are literally made from natural features of the earth, with clay bodies, grass manes and crystal eyes. They come in a range of unique patterns and would be suitable for western or working disciplines such as ranch work and barrel racing.

Oriental XingXing Breedsheet by EvilDemonCat The unique beauty of the Oriental XingXing from EvilDemonCat is sure to sweep you off your feet. These light but tough horses roamed Asia since ancient times, with some rumors telling that they were used alongside the dragon gods! They come in all natural horse colors, as well as a handful of mutations.

Tanto Breedsheet by CieloCadono :icontanto-registry: This is a new breed created by CieloCadono. They are large horses with special tack just for the breed and lots of feathering!  They come in many mutations, and have an extensive leveling system.  The group even has its own bank and money system for the leveling up!  The group is very thorough, and definitely one to watch out for.

If you want your or someone's else's breed featured, send a Note to the HARPG-Newsletter titled Horse Breed Feature with links to the  breedsheet, breed registry (if possible) and breed history (if possible).  I'll feature otherworldly and realistic breeds!

Lakeside Race Event (NEW ENTRIES!)Location: Lake Ouachita National Park, Hot Springs, Arkansas
Classes: Flat Race, Steeplechase, Endurance Race, Mini Halter/Conformation
Deadline: Friday, October 31st. 11:59PM Central Standard Time
Rose Thorn Stables would like to invite stables everywhere to join us in a weekend of racing fun!
Having long appreciated the natural beauty that can be found in the Ouachita Mountains that span through Arkansas and Oklahoma,  Rose Thorn Stables felt that this would be a perfect place to host a weekend getaway complete with horse events.
Hot Springs is no stranger to horse racing, as it is also the home of Oaklawn Park, though with it only being open January to April, there's a huge gap to be filled in the latter part of the year. (Fun Fact: All the horses that are featured on the stamps to the right raced right here in Hot Springs!) With Arkansas being the Natural State, and Hot Springs home of the state's largest lake and a major track, it seems the perfect location for such an event!
RoseThornStables is hosting the Lakeside Race Event, and it's looking to be quite the thrill! With a halter class, endurance, steeplechasing, and a flat race, you're guaranteed to find something to fit in with your fast footed equines! This event ends October 31, 2014.

The HA-RPG community is no exception, so why not have an LGBT event to spread some much-needed love and support?

Lovely beauties up for sale, looking for a good home!

Open-Offer Horse Sale!I'm in way over my head, you guys; the other day I realized that TES has 24 horses! I really need to make some room, I own way more than I have time for. So, I'm having a sale to downsize my herd, as hard as it is for me to part with my pretty bunches of pixels. You can pay in points, art, breeding slots... anything, really! I'm seriously desperate to get some of my beauties off my hands, so I am taking offers on almost the whole herd.
See all my horses here:

(There are a few that I'm more attached to than others, so you may need to find a way to convince me if I seem hesitant -- and I don't mean offer me more or anything! XD I mean tell me your plans for them if you get them or how much you want them. I'm a softie!)
 The following horses are off-limits: Blaidd Galon, Hungover You, Fool of Hearts, Xiuhcoatl, Cyrrol, Saol Maireachtáil, Queen Lizzie,
lava-java is trying to clear out his stable, and is taking offers on nearly all his horses! There's a wide array of breeds available, and all methods of payment are accepted.

Lilium Stables Sale-Vanners and AndalusiansDecided to put a few horses up for sale.  As you may or may not know, Lilium Stables RARELY offers any of its horses for sale.  This is, therefore, an excellent opportunity to own some of our quality stock that didn't quite have a place at our stable.
Because we rarely offer horses for sale, we will be picky to whom our horses get re-homed to.  In the end, the horse may not even be sold if we don't feel they would be better off with someone else.

I bet you are all dying to hear who won the much anticipated 6th Annual Lilium Stables Arabian Horse Show! For those of you who missed it in previous years, this is probably the largest and most renowned Arab show on HARPG, for realistic and fantasy Arabs and part-breds, run each year by the dedicated LucasBinx. For some it was their first time entering the Lilium Arab Show, while we also saw the return of some proven champions who had taken home titles from the previous shows - such as COTN Salah-ad din who I think has been entered in all of the Lilium Arab shows except the first! So now onto the winners for 2014: First place was awarded in 21 different classes, and on top of that I think there were about 20 Grand Champion and Reserve Champion titles. This Newsletter would scroll down forever if we thumbnailed them all, so I'm just going to feature the Grand Champions. Please have a look at the journal thumbs above to enjoy the full list of participants. Well done to everybody!

RESULTS - DNS's Summer Showjumping Event:new: THE RESULTS ARE UP!

This was very hard to judge, that's why it took me a while. There were many, many beautiful entries, I loved every single one of them. Sadly, there are only a few placements, so surely some of you will be disappointed with their score. Please, no sore losers. If you feel like you have not been placed as high as you'd like, NOTE ME and I'll send you your score, explain where and why you lost points and where you are in relation to other entries score-wise etc. Many of you forgot/didn't write your STORIES! There are at least 5 entries that could have been placed 1-3 places higher if they had a story.
Huge congratulations to  all competitiors!
Winners, you can find the all of your prizes bellow (plus the picture at the top of the journal). Points have been sent out already as well! Note me for other prizes (breedings etc.), as well as note any donators to receive their prizes!

DNS's Summer Showjumping Event run by Littlehorselover - This was a effort/story-judged English show jumping event where "Role-plays with other stables are HIGHLY encouraged and will bring extra points". It's always fun to see this kind of interaction between stables, and a great example of it was carried out by Mendokusee, Littlehorselover and abosz007. Below you can read their RP story sequence:

DGR's Western Dressage Show:new: RESULTS ARE UP!  Wow, gals and guys, awesome work!  Definitely made it hard on us to judge this... :XD:  Our judging method of course was 50% how closely rules were followed, and then the second 50% was based on aesthetics.  That first 50% was the crucial part in judging, and a lot of fine entries didn't quite get up there because things like the dirt road or audience stand weren't drawn, or some folks forgot to add their home state/country!
BUT, we had so many entries for this show, it was unbelievable!  22 of you brought amazing horses and riders.  Wow, thanks everyone so much for making this show such a success.  We had so many great entries, that we went ahead and awarded all the way down to 6th place, instead of just 3rd place!  We've updated the prize section below for you guys, congratulations!
Speaking of prizes!    These are on their way and will be handed out very soon!  Points have already been given out, and ribbo

And impress they did! Places were handed out through sixth, as well as a Best Dressed and Viewer's Choice Award, we cannot wait to see more western dressage shows around the community!
