We give them everything. We give them their identities, attitude, genetics, hobbies, wardrobes, relationships, surroundings--the whole works. But what do they give us in return?
Most people may say their characters give them back a sense of accomplishment. Something to do. Entertainment.
While my little darlings give me that, they give me so much more.
They give me ALL SORTS OF PRETTY FEELINGS and disgusting feelings I guess. They make me cry and they make me smile. I particularly listen to the way people freak out over characters in television shows on here and on tumblr mostly on tumblr and while I am no stranger to those sort of feelings, I feel that way about my characters, too! What's that, I hear? Reflections on Doctor Who or Supernatural or the Avengers that go something like MY FEELINGS OH GOD MY LIFE IS RUINED NO PRECIOUS BABBUS OH GOD I WILL NEVER MOVE FROM THIS FETAL POSITION IN THE CORNER OF MY

50 Years of Guarding the Universe
An American Doujinshi by Matt Frank and Josh Bugosh
In the year 1965, from the depths of an arctic glacier, awoken by an accidental atomic explosion, came crawling the Friend of all Children, the Guardian of the Universe, the Terrible Terrapin of Tokyo, GAMERA. Sweeping the Japanese box office, and quickly becoming an pop culture icon in his own right, Gamera captured the hearts of kaiju fans the world over, both young and old. After 12 feature films, Gamera’s 50th anniversary is upon us in the year 2015…and any rumors of a celebratory film were quickly silenced. As the months march on, it seems less and less likely that the mighty reptile will recieve his due, even as the kaiju genre enjoys a resurgeance in popularity.
Ergo, kaiju artist Matt Frank, best known for his work on IDW Publishing’s various Godzilla comic series, has begun work on a standalone story, The Last Hope. Intended to be produced as a one-shot, self-p
What Future Brings - the Beacon of Hope.This has been a wild, wild week for me. Never before have I juggled so many things at one time, between work, private life and the stuff I will write about in a second. First things first, let me get the single most anticipated question out of the way, so as not to keep you in further suspense - the next episode of "Marauder Shields" will be up on Wednesday, 16th of May, which basically means that I am skipping a single episode this week. Believe me, the decision didn't come easy, but it was either that or turning in a half-done, cut-up episode, which wouldn't do Zaeed any justice, nor would it present Emily Wong's legacy in the light it deserves. But let's not get even further into spoilerish territory right now.What Future Brings - the Beacon of Hope.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Why I Draw Women OftenI recently got a message, and I will slightly reword it so as not to cause profane friction, nor will I state who it came from, but it read like this: "Why is everything you post regarding a woman? I think it's very sexist when the only thing you can draw are breasts and buttocks like it's the only thing in the world."Why I Draw Women Often3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so by now, if you haven't been watching me for a good minute, you know that I really like to draw women, and I like portraying the female form, usually and often in a tasteful manner. I could hypothetically end that question there and just answer "I wasn't aware everything in my gallery was a woman or had breasts and a butt" and then post a picture or two of Rai Rivet... But I'm not going to do that. I'm going to explain my stance on drawing the female form and my adoration for it.

BullyingA teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.Bullying4 years ago in Personal More Like This

* Even before his birth, the future leader of North Korea was triggering miracles. Official biographers say his birth in a cabin on the slopes of Baekdu Mountain in February 1942 was foretold by a swallow and heralded by a double rainbow. When he was born, a new star appeared in the night sky.
* The first time he picked up a golf club, in 1994, Kim reportedly shot a 38-under par round on North Korea's only golf course, including 11 holes-in-one. He then decided to retire from the sport for ever.
* Kim has the ability to alter the weather simply through the power of thought.
* The fledgling leader was a genius as an infant, with official North Korean biographies stating that he had learned to walk at just 3 weeks and was talking at 8 weeks.

Answer: In short, because they sound like whiny wannabe-feminist with major complexes and no knowledge of how art in a professional level works.
So a bit of background story, as some of you know, I was mostly oriented to fine arts, this has been changing progressively with time, and now, I'm more focused to character design and marketable illustrations. This has led me to a lot of research and self instruction via internet. But with the good, comes the bad. I wanted to write this entry for a while, because thanks to lack of experience I used to agree with criticizing the industry standards when it comes to representation of female characters, huge boobs, skinny frame, bikini armor stereotype.

The Leviathan and the Death of HopeWarning: contains spoilers concerning the Leviathan DLC, Mass Effect 3 and my notions about what good writing is. Duh.The Leviathan and the Death of Hope3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are moments when I wish I could just turn off my writer's sense at a whim and "just go with it". Ignore that a story in a game, or a movie, or a book, or a TV show is flawed in my opinion, just to enjoy the views, get an adrenaline rush from all the flashing colors and have fun. And truth be told - it usually works that way... Just not for the universes I tend to care about. If you got me invested in your franchise, I will expect you to deliver the goods. 'Tis how the cookie crumbles.
Which brings me to the Leviathan DLC. I've seen a lot of positive reviews and emotions towards it popping up all over the internet before I was even able to check it out myself. My hopes were high, and, initially, I loved it. It had a sense of exploration Mass Effect 3 was seriously lacking and the TGES Mining Base really reminded me of Noveria... It was spot on.

"EVERY PERSON ON THE INTERNET EVER IS GOING TO SEE THIS."
And really picture what people who don't know you, and don't care to know you, would say.
Then prepare yourself for it.
Because as terribly unlikely as that particular scenario is; your DA profile, journal, and gallery are still not your private little getaway of the internet for you and your buddies.
And you never know when something you did or said will be featured somewhere with a much bigger (and louder. and meaner.) audience than you're used to.

Like the title says I can draw and color species designs for you as well as make a base for you to make characters and adoptables.
Prices vary depending on complexity, what you want and how much you want.
One single image showing the species design
One single image showing a few extra features on the side (mouth, eyes, etc)
Reference sheet, with a large image of the design, with added features such as size chart, variations of horns/feathers/spikes/etc, gender differences, color chart, etc
You must provide all of the information for the species and provide me with a description of it's appearance in as much detail as possible (sketches will be sent to you, to get your ok)
Now if you want me to create the species entirely myself it'll be an additional $20 I ask that you at least let me know kind of what you want like if you want quadruped bird like species or a biped fox like species, or if you give me full authority of what
