Firstly, thanks for all the birthday well-wishing. Veritable.. mountains of well-wishing. Though I'd be just as content postponing my birthday until next year. And then maybe the year after that, and after that..
A year older and a year wiser. Well, the latter is debatable. But definitely a year older! This year has been a wild, satisfying, disappointing, exciting one. It marks my first total year as a freelancer, which has been simultaneously one of the most liberating and terrifying career leaps I've ever made. Thankfully, the studio I've ended up working with for the entire year has been a very welcoming one. The workload can be immense, but outside of being paid, there are few rewards greater than seeing your work animated in a game after toiling on it for hours. Getting to visit Barcelona was another fantastic perk.
I really can't complain at all about work, this year. I've worked with the guys from Wayforward, Vigil, did a bit of here-and-there for my old stu

My Thoughts on Valentines Day - FriendshipHello deviants, friends, and family.My Thoughts on Valentines Day - Friendship1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
After a horrible recent breakup in which I was repeatedly lied to, threatened, and cheated on, my thoughts on Valentines day have changed. I now believe that Valentines day is not a time for those in love to endorse that once again, there is no reason you should have to "re-endorse" such a thing with chocolates or flowers. Instead, it is a time to reach to those around you. Your friends. Your family. Tell them that you love them. Remind them that you are there for them.
And that is what I wish for you all today.
To those of you who know me personally, either in real life, or from deviantART, you know I am here for you, and I am so honored to have you all as friends.
To those of you I know less well, this next year, I want to know you better. Come say hi, drop me a message! I am so happy to be in a community where friendship is only a few clicks away, no matter where you're from or who you are.
Thank you, to all of my valentin

We will be adding more prizes for more chance of winning! There is no entry limit, so feel free to try as many times as you'd like, it increases the chances of being chosen randomly!
We look forward to your entries!
/ End edit.
Because the last contest had so many contestants, we figured another contest for the chance to win a messenger of your own was a good idea!
The contest will be a design contest.
You will design a messenger, to become the Messengers mascot for the group!
This contest will NOT be based on how well you can draw, just how the design looks.
1. You CANNOT use a previously made design.
2. You MAY use ANY gender, type of body parts and colour of the Messenger (as long as it agrees to the rules of the Messenger species on the species sheet.) If you have any questions about this, please ask
3. Name and information about the messenger is NOT required, in fact, we would rather you not name th
JasmineIn 2003, police in Warwickshire , England , opened a garden shed and found a whimpering, cowering dog. It had been locked in the shed and abandoned. It was dirty and malnourished, and had clearly been abused.Jasmine2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In an act of kindness, the police took the dog, which was a greyhound female, to the nearby Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary known as a willing haven for animals abandoned, orphaned or otherwise in need. http://www.warwickshirewildlifesanctuary.co.uk/
Geoff and the other sanctuary staff went to work with two aims: to restore the dog to full health, and to win her trust. It took several weeks, but eventually both goals were achieved.
They named her Jasmine, and they started to think about finding her an adoptive home.
The dog had other ideas. No-one remembers now how it began, but Jasmine started welcoming all animal arrivals at the sanctuary. It wouldn't matter if it was a puppy, a fox cub, a rabbit or, probably, a rhinoceros, Jasmine would peer into the box

We got to interview a visionary futurist with an eye on technology about what would inspire today's comic book writers to create our next superheroes with knowledge of real technological and scientific advancement.

Ramblings about comic storiesI have been thinking (after being asked couple of times) about comic making, and I really can't say I could give any ultimate truths about it. I mean I don't know how to make good comics myself, I can't tell you that you must do this and never do that and stuff. This is a subject where I'm afraid there is no easy answers.Ramblings about comic stories3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you want to make a comic, then go ahead! Make one! Even if your comic sucks, you can get it done, and learn from it. It might be crap, but now that it's done, you can move on to do other comics and stories and stuff. First hand experience is always first hand experience, and failures are what we learn from. Just learn to lose first. First attempts are usually crap. They are the piles we fall face first into and feel ashamed of later. It's up to you if you stay there, face in the crap pile, weeping about it, or get back up, laugh about it and continue your life.
I've been there. During my young life I've made more mistakes in the comic business than I'd d
Exploring Art 31: It's about the money. Or not...You know, this week has been pretty horrible for art theft for me. I think the hardest part about this week is not that people stole my work, it is the reaction to being busted.Exploring Art 31: It's about the money. Or not...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've had everything flung out from 'you're not a lawyer, don't tell me what I can and can't do', to 'if you were a REAL artist you wouldn't care about the money'. I've had people call me a bitch and a whore for asking them to remove my work. I've had people state that I am too rude in telling them to remove the stolen work, and that I should appreciate that they gave me 'free publicity'. I've had people tell me they will now be boycotting my work, and will tell everyone what a shitty person I am and to stay away from my work unless I let them continue to use my work without compensation.
To be honest? I was very close to giving up this weekend. I ended up taking a break and curling up in a hot bath and just crying for a few hours over the weekend. It's painful, it hurts. My pride is wounded, my soul feels

There's a lot of ways you can interpret what that is. Maybe it makes you think about drawing. Line art? Geometry? Product lines, phone lines, a line of poetry, a line at the grocery store, etc. Some synonyms for

The killjoys of dAYou know these people. "Japan isn't that great." "Wolves aren't that cool." "Yaoi sucks." "(Popular thing) is overrated!" Etc. People who express these opinions loudly, not just because they feel that way, but out of spite for the people who do like these things.The killjoys of dA3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When dealing with them, remember this - a person who tries to bring you down for simply enjoying something is usually just attempting to prove that they are a better, more sophisticated person than you are. And in that very act is the proof that they aren't nearly as sophisticated and mature as they wish they were.
So fuck 'em. Like what you like, and don't change under pressure. Because in my eyes, giving up something you like just because it makes you look like a stereotype is weak - holding on to it and proving you're more than that is strong.
