Beadwork feature - shaped flowersFlowers in this feature, unlike the ones in Flowery beadweavings feature, were not made just by "painting" flower in beaded fabric using different coloured beads and, unlike French beaded flowers, don't need wire in order to get or keep shape. These were made using different sizes of beads, different stitches, different tension, by increasing, decreasing and shaping the beaded fabric. There are many different ways to make a shaped flower - from veryBeadwork feature - shaped flowers3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

JoshDae Contest and Raffle!Here is it- finally! A contest dedicated to none other than Joshwa Kesch and Damien Parker.JoshDae Contest and Raffle!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This contest, though, will be like none other that I've had in the past. This time there will be USD and MAILED ITEMS as prizes! (as well as points, artwork, etc)
YES. Since Damien and Joshwa have become so popular in comparison to my other OCs, I figure that a contest specifically for them should be big and exciting.
So first of all, here is what you'll have to do!
Draw or Write (or anything else) about Damien and/or Joshwa.
That's seriously all I have to do for all of these prizes?"
YES. That is all you have to do LOL it's easy as fuck just join.
» You can draw Damien by himself.
» You can draw Joshwa by himself.
» You can draw them both together.
It's YOUR choice! The only rule is that at least ONE of them is present!
Now, there are still THREE references to be added, so please be pat

I don't really have a lot of OCs. But what about those which I have? I don't really like to use them when trying out new techniques or practice. Which is why I've decided to host an OC contest. The main goal is simply to create an OC for me!
LAST DAY TO ENTER
This is a list of things I'd like to see in the OC: http://sta.sh/01nqhwlhdjqj
Keep in mind that this is a very long list of random things I like. Don't put all the things possible into one design, I'd rather you pick about three things which you'd like to focus on and not half of the list!
Or check out some designs I've favorited here: http://reblog.deviantart.com/favourites/
Deadline: 4th of November
Might extend it on request or if I have something which might come up at the time. Keep in mind that it's summer now and you might have more free time now than in autumn.

The order in which the OCs are listed doesn't mean anything: there's no project or OC that I like more than the others.
Before every story I'll put a small section with some general information about it and its characters, so you'll be able to understand what kind of OCs there might be in it. And I'll do something similar with the "dos and don'ts" of every OC (please read them, they will be very important!!).

The show is stupid, annoying, and it makes no sense. I have watch both seasons. I thought one or two episodes was OK but most was retarded annoying bullshit. I really recommend all Anti bronies watch at least 3 episodes to see if they actually might like it.
I wouldnt have any problem with Bronies, if they stopped ponyfying everything! If they stopped making MLP references on things that have nothing to do with MLP. They are like Portal fans! Every time cake is mentioned, someone has to say its a lie. Really stop saying it. Anyway, we are not on offence. We were all minding our own business when we saw a fucking pony reference in the comments of a face book update or a youtube comment! And dont say try to ignore it. If you are thinking about leaving a comment saying that, then you really need to take off you brony vision and look at life through NORMAL people eyes. We CANT just ignore it. If there was a sw

This entry spoke strongly to me. How Kichea sees the world and how the world truly is. She is not facing the world, but rather at the future. She contains a look as if she almost pities it. My friends couldn't stop talking how amazing this was and it shows in this entry.

A strong personal favorite of mine. Shows her chill side well when she's not out bounty hunting. Love all the detail and shading done. Plus, she has a look that says she could kill you at any moment while looking sexy doing it.
And the winner is...
And of course, this masterpiece. The battle scars, lovely background, and small rays of light... all speak clearly of Kichea's character. Kichea is the light, literally that is what her name means,
