Awkward PosesI'm planning on doing a stock-photo-shoot to create references for some of DA's most notorious awkward poses.Awkward Poses2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There will be classic "hands behind back" and "am I a ballerina or drunk?" shots of course, but I'd like some help finding direct references to base my references off of. Yes, I'll be using drawings as references to create stock-photos for references for drawings. It's derpception.
There's plenty of drawings with awkward poses out there, and I've seen a lot, but that's not enough. I need help finding the "best of the best" to pose after.
So, please, as you navigate the bowels of the art world (a.k.a. DeviantArt), link back those strange poses here. I can never see too many.
Also, the photo-shoot will be recorded, so you'll get to see me in action, falling on my face, trying to replicate drawings. Isn't that exciting?

css breaking journal designshey all! i woke up this morning to find my whole journal design broken. it suddenly looked like this, with a bunch of extra space and little "external link" graphics next to each image. turns out deviantart now automatically adds a new CSS class, called "external", to all external links (including image links like those used in my journal), ruining the design.css breaking journal designs5 months ago in Personal More Like This
i suddenly thought of a solution, and since i figured other people might have this problem too, i wanted to share it here! what i did was replace external links with the one that deviantart automatically generates. so instead of a link to loish.net, i made it a link to "http://www.deviantart.com/users/outgoing?http://loish.net". then it's no longer interpreted as an external link and the ugly boxes don't appear. hopefully someone will find this useful! :]
Striking Witches! (Motion Comic with Audio) UPDATERemember this exquisite piece by :iconanbxStriking Witches! (Motion Comic with Audio) UPDATE9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now with sound! Sexy, sexy sound. I've been whittling away at this piece for a few weeks now (months). Last leg took me a while for stupid reasons, but it turned out alright in the end. A promise of things to come? Maybe. It takes a fair amount of work to design a soundscape, most of the work just on a logistic basis. Still, when you have a great visual to work with, it all falls into place pretty well.

Shout It Outs.

"Ah, the world-weariness and pain what can only come from the old soul of a middle school furry." ~ TikTak
These wonderfully color-coordinated windows into the very soul of DeviantArt are guaranteed to warm the cockles of my heart every time one trembles its way onto my screen. Black backgrounds, Comic Sans, and tormented critters pave the way to expressing things you previously thought you could never shout out.
I pour over the deepest, darkest secrets you reveal to the world, like "I'm really skinny but I still call myself fat" and, "I secretly hate people" and, "My mom doesn't know I self-harm, unless she uses the internet" and, "Friends are useless" and, "I feel so ignore by you" and, "I'm mean to my friends" and, "Fuck you" and, "Why do people hate me??" and "I'm not Asian".
They're beautiful salad
Observations of Life That May Help YouIf you are ever down, whether worried or depressed, here are some little observations I have made in my lifetime that may help you. Note that these are observations, I do not stand tall claiming that my beliefs are truest of all truths, they are merely things I've noticed and have integrated into my own beliefs.Observations of Life That May Help You2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) An optimist and a pessimist will always call themselves a realist. Chances are, you aren't one. So instead of worrying about something you 'know will happen', realise that whatever you think will happen isn't the only way things can end up.
2) You will never know the future (unless you're a psychic who has proven time and time again that your predictions are always true. Then that's just impressive). The past has happened, it is recorded in your memory. The present is where your feet are standing. The future is a fogged empty space. Whichever path you walk, whatever action you take, you forge a new piece of the future, one that immediately becomes the present,

The Harsh Realities of the "Miracle of Birth"
© Written by sassawj
Many parents like to allow their children experience the “miracle of birth” first hand by allowing their dog, cat, rabbit or other pet to mate and give birth to a litter. While for some it can be an amazing and unforgettable experience, for the pets already alive in shelters awaiting a new home, to them it isn’t so much. If

Fifteen Random Real Commission TipsSome of these may help you!!Fifteen Random Real Commission Tips3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Slow your roll.
- Don't flood inboxes with a new journal entry every day. That's a quick way to devalue the importance of that journal.
2) Devalue yourself. HARSHLY.
- Undercharge. A LOT. Be cheap. Work hard. Gather a clientele, garner experience, improve, and raise your prices later.
3) You suck.
- Maybe not... but assume you do. Think about it, if someone WAY better than you is offering commissions at the same price, do you even have a shot? You have to find a way around this.
4) Get around sucking.... slowly
- By practicing. For years. Fucking. YEARS. Deal.
5) Get around sucking.... quickly.
- elsevilla (a hero of mine) charges pretty much the same as me for a similar commission with BGs and stuff... But he won't draw chicks fucking. I will. Sell the fuck out!
- Original - Sell something unique that only you have! This might not require practice.
- Skilled - Sell your undeniable illustrative prowess. This requires lot

Okay for a few weeks now I've had art block, which as I'm sure you all know, is not very fun. The only problem is, I need to come up with a dragon design for my story! But As I'm lacking in both the written and drawing ability right now, I need some help.
So why not do a contest?
The aim of the game is pretty basic. Read the guidelines below, and design a dragon based off of it! I'll pick the winner, but there will be two special mentions too, because I'm nice like that.
By me. And my parents. Don't ask.
I'll probably use a system of points, 'so many for this, so many for that' etc.

Never laugh at beginnersA clear explanation of why you can not laugh at the kids and beginners.Never laugh at beginners2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some users (not just spectators, but also good artists) young authors criticize, laugh at "curves" works. This is silly, especially when the authors do not ask for criticism.
Criticism does not work, it just hurts. Assist cautious practical advice and training. The importance of studying anatomy, drawing and theory to understand himself. It is impossible to impose.
The only important thing: the love of his work, love for the intermediate result and a great desire to paint / sculpt. It is better if the young author will draw hundreds of pictures a month of unsuccessful than successful one once a year.
At the same time, it is important to invest ourselves into work, rather than mechanically drawing the line. But investing is not possible if you do not love yourself and your creativity.
I started sculpting in 2006. If I were recaptured desire, if not there were people who liked even the first of ... I'd never sculpted

Commissions are SUPER CLOSED.
IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!!!!
PLEASE READ BEFORE PLACING AN ORDER! I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF YOU DON'T!
HOW I CHOOSE COMMISSIONS
- Is this a fun, interesting, or exciting commission?
- Is this going to take a long time (not that that's a bad thing!)? A short time? Where does this fit my schedule?
- How long is the current queue?
- Do I desperately need money to pay bills this month?
- Does this client seem reliable, informed, and responsible?
- Do I just love this character or idea? I mean come on! I'm shallow! I like to draw things I like! You know I love fanart of certain things.
Please understand that I sometimes get a huge flood of notes and stuff, and I simply can't get back to everyone, let alone ACCEPT every commission. It's beyond me!
1. I'm in no way obligated to accept every commission offer! I can, will, and do pick and choose c

And I also found myself procrastinating by randomly giving points to lovely people. I don't need points right now, and I'll give away the few I have slooowly. Stay tuned for next giveaways~
