So about Decemberish of last year I reached 1 thousand watchers. I was looking through my gallery and read it over again. Some of the jokes I may say are lost among 95% of you guys. So here enjoy, maybe now you guys will know why I talk about Tobies pie in join.mes XD

For those of you artists who don't follow every last Facebook update on dinosaurs, I thought I's pass along this link. It describes Kulindadromeus, a Jurassic ornithischian from Siberia that is covered in a combination of scales AND fuzz. While it will probably take a while to develop a proper scientific consensus as to whether these are truly feather-like structures, elaborate scales, or some other epidermal structure, the take home message for you is that dinofuzz can now be inferred to be possible in essentially all dinosaurs. And furthermore Kulindadromeus has a scaly, dare I say almost rat-like tail to go along with its fuzz. So apparently the idea that dinosaurs couldn't contain both scales and fuzz is also incorrect (whether this applies to true feathers is not yet known).

news & updates.

I'm holding a contest to give away a years premium membership, along with some other cool art prizes.
The contest is super simple - just draw my characters Misa and Cahya together in a way that expresses their personalities well. They have very opposing personalities, but if you can draw them well together and draw them dynamically, you'll do fine!
Read below for a full set of rules and other tid bits.
Also if you want to donate some prizes, please let me know! There are 3 places with several prizes, it would be great to have multiple prizes~
Comment below telling me that you are entering so I can put you down on the entrants list!
If anything is confusing about what is written below please ask me! I'm a derp and sometimes write things wrong woops


For this contest, you will be drawing Misa and Cahya together.
As said above, they both have opposing personalities. 
- Misa is a shut in, very closeted and prefers to be on her lonesome. She loves to sleep a lot, she prefers not to speak unless it's necessary, and she just like to sit in one place for long periods of time. She avoids conflict, and basically avoids whatever she can. When she makes friends, it's often out of pity and it's very one-sided.
- Cahya is open, happy, gracious, loves being with her friends, and likes to be active and out there. She's loud, funny, a little bit crazy but still adores some relaxed down-time. She is the polar opposite of Misa and they both have conflicting personalities.
It is your job to create an image where you can somehow connect these two together and have them interacting dynamically and have it all make sense.
So for example, you could draw Misa and Cahya playing but Misa is a bit more sluggish and Cahya is overly excited. You just need to find something that works for you! But don't take that idea, come up with something fresh!
Here are the references for both of the girls.
misa reference by samiesaurus[reference] reginald and cahya by samiesaurus

- You can enter as many times as you want, but I will only choose one entry out of the ones you submit.
- The image must be in COLOR and you have the option to give it extra details like shading and backgrounds if you want to.
- Please don't draw my characters in a risque scenario.
- Don't copy other peoples work.
- Must be FULL BODY 
You can't use pre-made linearts or bases, must be done from scratch.
- The main prize of the premium cannot be awarded in points, its only the membership

These can be added to, write a comment offering some art or points or something if you want to.

First Place
- 1 year premium membership 
- 1 full digital drawing by me
- 2 flats (can add shading) by me
- 2 100x100s by me
- 2 icons by me
- animated pixel by plexusdynasty

Second Place
- 3 months premium membership
- 2 flats (can add shading) by me
- 2 100x100s by me
- 1 icon by me
- pixel by plexusdynasty
- chibi by mossaroo

Third Place
- 1 month premium membership
- 1 flat (can add shading) by me
- 1 100x100 by me
- 1 icon by me
- 50x50 animated icon by plexusdynasty

Runner Ups
I may select some runner ups at the end of the contest to people who I think deserve a small little prize for participation or if I just liked their idea. Each person will get an icon from me.

The contest will go until the 1st of September - reason being is that I have my midsemester break then and it will be much easier for me to sort through the entries, award prizes and get all the owed work done ;u; 
So you have a decent month and a bit to get your entries in!

Hello and welcome to the first ever Castellano International Event Week! A week full of nothing but horses, fun and great competition. This event will be held at our main barn in Italy. Competitors needing stalls will have stalls available to them in our main training barn and will have full access to our lovely facilities here at CI. The competition will consist of a three day event, show jumping, pas de duex dressage! There will be 2 levels of competition for the three day event.


July 24th - September 30th

• Formal attire is a must, since the weather will be hot, a rider may ride in a formal show shirt without their coat. Helmets are required, even for dressage (#mindyourmelon ;) )
• Participants of the 3 day event must create an image for all 3 events or put all three entries together in one image.
• Horses may be shown refusing/knocking a rail/falling/ect.
• Extra images will earn more points in judging, as will rps and collabs. (trying to encourage ya'll to play together mkay?)
• Photobackgrounds are allowed but will not earn as many points.
• Tracing is allowed as long as you directly credit the image (no crediting google/facebook/flickr/tumblr)
• All entries must be at least 1/2 body and flat colored (will earn points for shading and fullbody)
• Extra images can be any portion as long as it is flat colored.
• Your countries flag must be shown either on rider coat/shirt or on the horses saddlepad!

• Our show arena #7 on our map, is made primarily of windows. There are grandstands at the north & south side and full windows at the east & west. (So you can see the barn where participants are stabled and you can see part of the cross country course).
• You CAN see the cross country course from the indoor arena (I say this because you'll be able to see other competitors while they are on course!)
• You CAN rp with me, my staff may not have references but if you ask I can talk to you about it.
• Monday: foggy in the morning, humid all day with cloudy sky's
• Tuesday: light drizzle in the morning with some fog but will clear up by the time events start, partly cloudy with moderate heat
• Wednesday: incredibly hot and humid all day, heat storm in the evening (lightening visible from show arena but no thunder)
• Thursday: foggy until the afternoon, hot and humid with scattered showers in the evening

I RARELY rant anymore but... I just have to rant about this because I have seen many of my favorite people say this. So many artists these past 2 or so months feel that drawing sonic art is a waste of time, it's an inferiority of art, it holds people back from achieving their dreams, all the excuses of the world. I have been drawing sonic art since I was what... 4 years old? I myself have been in the state where I said "I'M GONNA QUIT SONIC" because I let the bad side of the fandom get to me and I thought I had grown bored of it when really it was just.. me. Then I realised "I LOVE IT WHY DID I ABANDON YOUUUUU" .... Still today, there are so many people who bash on sonic artists but as a fellow member of the sonic fandom, I like to draw it and I like to look at it... No, I don't know anything past Sonic Unleashed, I don't even know Silver and Blaze's personality and I know jack about Mephiles. I don't know about any games on the Wii, I guess I am not what others to be considered a true fan but I assure you I am a true fan of Sonic the Hedgehog. Just probably not as big as others obviously haha..! ... BUT THAT'S BESIDES THE POINT. What I'm trying to say is... Don't let one fandom "hold you back" because it's not! Don't let someone who isn't a part of the fandom who look down on it be a reason to quit! There is always going to be a bad side of a fandom! This is coming from someone who had tried to give up on the fandom because I believed it was holding me back, it was a petty art form, when it wasn't! It was me! You're the one who is holding yourself back if you feel stuck (sorry if this offends)! Don't blame it on the fandom, expand your horizons and keep your interests close! Versatility is good for you and that is the ticket to achieving your dreams as a concept artist, animator, comic artist, anything, you name it! I don't draw just sonic either, I am still expanding what I can do slowly but surely. OF COURSE to each their own, I'm not stopping you from not wanting to draw it to those whom this may concern. Some people do just move on but goodness sake don't just blatantly say it. I will always be a sonic artist, it's not holding me back, and I am not a damn bit ashamed of it. //ends rant.
