when you refer to parts of your house as "the sewing room" and "the fur room" you know you have a fursuit business (multiple storage areas too, i also have "the box shed")

neon dust bunnies breeding under the couch
I loose my scissors all the time, usually while using them, and usually it turns out I am sitting on them as they slid under my butt-pillow

shopping list frequently includes thread and needles
wondering what other people think your duct tape dummies are, seriously, the bent over quadsuit ones especially

Today, I write about how you can ponify your profile When I saw Derpy hovering on leKelBel's profile page, I thought I had overdosed on Ponies But she linked me to StevenRoy's explanation, who points to Fli-c's Journal Entry with detailed instructions. Here is the short version: Click on some widget on your profile page where you can add a description and type in one or more of the following codes:

My Little Whoniverse Master ListThis is an index of all the Doctor Who and related characters that I have either drawn or am planning to draw. Most, if not all of them are reference sheets.

I DO NOT TAKE REQUESTS. Any requests will be ignored. If you have any questions, here's my FAQ.
For those of you who haven't read the FAQ- I'm not going to ponify EVERY character that's ever been on Doctor Who. I have have to draw the line somewhere for my own sanity.
I've tried to group them into logical categories. Characters I'm unfamiliar with are probably in the wrong ones.

A simple efficient way to learn to drawLet's cut right to the chase folks.A simple efficient way to learn to draw8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Tracing or copying another artist and posting the traced or copied work claiming you did it will not make you a better artist. It makes a hot mess for yourself trying to claim you 'referenced' their works when it looks identical to their works.
It's just as bad a handicap as traced bases.
I'm here to teach you a tip on how to learn to draw. I use to do this bassackwards till a friend showed me the right approach.
We're going to take a coloring book page for this since it's in public domain. If you wish to learn to draw like someone, please always ask before you do this. And never post your process as you're not the original owner and are only borrowing their works.
Here, we've got a simple coloring page of Disney's Simba to help us learn.
The next step is to draw a stick figure over the image, showing how his body works. We use a circle to de

The Symbol of Peace Film - COMPLETED! Film Fests!Hello Everyone,The Symbol of Peace Film - COMPLETED! Film Fests!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Symbol of Peace film is finally complete! After many hours of planning, shooting, and editing, as well as receiving help from countless numbers of people, I will now be submitting the film to film festivals!
This has been an absolutely amazing and invaluable experience no matter where the film goes. Through this journey I have had the pleasure of meeting many people from across the world. I have learned much through this experience that will stay with me for every new film I create.
There are so many people who helped make this film possible. I wanted to find a way to share the final product with you as we do not know if or when it may be first screened at a film festival. Due to the rules of some film festivals, I am not allowed to submit the video publicly on YouTube or to any other public sharing sites.
However, if you would like to privately view the film, please send me a note or email at email@example.com, and we will send you the details
PE: GemstonesCommunity WeekPE: Gemstones3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
First of all, I won't differentiate between "precious"* and "semi-precious" gemstones in this article. Here's why: The term "semi-precious gemstone" is an old and rather unscientific term. The terms "precious" and "semi-precious" can be very misleading, as they imply certain stones are more valuable than others, even when that's not the case. The distinction between the two terms was used to reflect a gem's rarity, quality and "beauty", and because there's simply no sure, objective way to tell which gems are "precious" and which aren't, you won't find them in this article.
So, I will simply talk of "gems" or "gemstones", or, if I'm feeling like this article needs some word diversity/really lazy, simply "stones".
*most commonly: diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald
Important Terms and Definitions:
Carat: Some might mistake this for describing the size of a gemstone, but it's actually a measur

HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE SYMBOL OF PEACE -2 FESTS Please be aware the times have changed slightly!HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE SYMBOL OF PEACE -2 FESTS2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Symbol of Peace, a short documentary that I have worked on for the last year was accepted into film festivals earlier this year including the Peace River Film Festival where it will be screening this weekend on September 23, at 2:00PM, and the MovingMedia Film Festival at Wayne State University.
Although it was a great honor for me to have the film screened at these two festivals they were two of the smaller festivals we were accepted into.
The Symbol of Peace, Directed and filmed by Zev Vel, will share the inspiring stories and dreams of the people who love the peace sign and have created their own peace signs to display on their homes and businesses.
I was recently contacted and told that my film had made it into the Woodstock Film Festival. I am so excited as the Hudson Va

A year and a half I changed the program [Bride 1.0] to [Wife 1.0] and found that the program generated an unexpected application called [Baby.exe] that takes up too much space in HD.
On the other hand, [Wife 1.0] installs itself into all other programs and is loaded automatically when I open any application.
Applications such as [Beer_With_Friends 0.3], [Night_Out 2.5] or [Sunday_For_Soccer 2.8] no longer work, and the system hangs whenever I try to load them again.
In addition, from time to time an executable hidden (virus) called [Mother_In_Law 1.0] appears, ending abruptly, the execution of a command.

How did you first discover deviantART?
Just over two years ago, just a few months after I turned 13, a very close friend of mine introduced me to the site. Since then, I have grown both as an artist and as a deviant to love the interactions, community, and spirit that comes with deviantART.
What was it about dA that made you want to stay?
When I first started, I really didn't understand the site at all, and it wasn't until one deviant, 11thDimensionPhoto, watched me that I really started to see the power of the community.
Until then, no other artists had really looked at what I posted or cared But he did. He gave me feedback, suggestions, critiques, answered questions You name it! That's what I love about this place. Professional and hobbyists who all love art are willing to take a few minutes and actually talk to you, give you suggestions, and allow the

PE: How to Advertise CommissionsHow to: Advertise CommissionsPE: How to Advertise Commissions11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Many deviants offer commissions, but how do you effectively advertise them? This article will go over some methods for maximizing the exposure on your commissions so that they can be as successful as possible.
This is the one method I cannot stress enough. Commission Widgets are one of the most effective ways to advertise your commissions because they not only feature your commissions on your profile page, but also add them to the searchable database of dA's Commission Page. Numerous deviants use the Commission Page to find artists to hire, so it is a smart idea to add yourself to the database.
However, simply slapping a commission widget onto your page is not enough. You need to make your commissions as appealing as possible through the following steps:

This article was made within Project Educate Week of Artistic Nudes in order to help and educate the community (not only the ArtNude's)...
It is also part of a series of articles being posted elsewhere around dA, by various deviants. I'm linking them all up in my journals (especially this one: http://helewidis.deviantart.com/journal/19386596/ ) so that you can have them all in one place in case they don't get your eye in the midst of the many articles in the News page!
Here we are: you want to sell your artwork but don't know how-to!
Common sense gives you that the first thing you'll need to have is artwork of quality. While some people may buy poor quality artwork for a first time they won't do it twice.
Second thing you'll have to consider is that you must provide variety when assembling your shop whether it is online or at a store and/or gallery out there "In Real Life"
