Christmas Free Raffle!, Art Trade and UpdatesHello all!Christmas Free Raffle!, Art Trade and Updates2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Every year I've tried to have special holiday sales for my commissions but this year it looks like I've accumulated a pretty tall pile of work > <.
Therefore, instead of opening commissions I'll be holding a Christmas raffle, yaaaay! Also. I'd like to do a gift exchange with one other artist. More information later in the journal.
Up for grabs is a bust drawing, either in style 1 or style 2 ! (with or w/o bg basically)
Style 1: Style 2:

It's only open to my watchers! If you're not one, you can easily change that muahaha
Comment on this journal! That's one entry!
Tag your friends! Each person you tag is 1/2 an entry. So if you tag 2 people, that equals 1 extra entry in the raffle. Tag 6 people and that's 3 more! You can always ask for help if you're confused/don't know h
All Bases + RulesIf you wish to purchase ALL bases together, (about 1500+ points together) you can get them for 10$ via PayPal, yes I know this is cheaper than the points, but the reason why is because it's faster and doesn't make me wait for 2 weeks. c: Just note me and I will send you the PayPal and send you a temporary link for the download of the whole pack.All Bases + Rules2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Read all the rules and info before purchasing please. Refunds will not be given, if the files are corrupted I can exchange the files and you can re-download it for free.
In case of errors here is a list you can do that worked for other people:
- Make sure you have WinRAR or Winzip installed to your computer, it downloads the whole pack as a .zip file so you will need either of those programs to open it. They're free and easy to find on Google. Majorly of the people seem to forget this.
- Update your Flashplayer here: http://get.adobe.com/en/flashplayer/
- Use a different browser. (I use Maxthon/Chrome and it works perfectly
Animethon 20 ReviewSo this is pretty darn late to be posted but seeing as we were swept away in August and early September by cons, cosplay making and bust work/school schedules I couldn't really find a good time to do it until now XDAnimethon 20 Review1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Let me just preface this by saying that Animethon was my kinda con. I can't express enough how much of a good time I had there and how blown away I was at the amount of people who came to see us at the con and how much love we received. I was warm fuzzies all weekend what with meeting everyone :3
We also got to stay with our friend, :iconsensei-kay: who lives in Edmonton, so it was an absolute pleasure to really spend so quality time with him as well!

why art style doesn't matterare you obsessed with creating a unique art style for yourself?why art style doesn't matter1 month ago in Personal More Like This
do you become disappointed with your ever-changing style and wish it was stable?
art isn't about drawing in a very specific manner repeatedly for the rest of your life! stop making your main focus in art to make your own art style or stay true to your tried and true style!
art, to me, is so much bigger than that. instead of trying to become a one-trick pony, get yourself comfortable with art and let the rest happen on its own! who knows, by the end of it you may find yourself comfortable drawing in DOZENS of styles! try painting or realism, try drawing wildly and without care, try drawing something so exaggerated it's barely recognizable, try drawing with other senses in mind, try drawing a specific mood- etc!
art isn't ABOUT finding a style! before you become worried about your art being too inconsistent, worry about your anatomy, backgrounds, and color choices! study your surroundings, draw f

You may find some of the advice written here ridiculous but this is how i began so i'm speaking from experience
- intro over -
If you are a complete beginner i would highly recommend using cheaper metals such as copper, aluminum, anodized aluminum or lacquered copper. You will ruin some to substantial quantity of wire while learning. Don't let that bring you down; it is normal and everyone who makes jewelry has gone through that phase So, unless you are wealthy, get the cheapest wire possible and experiment. Learn how it behaves. If you bend it 3 times will it break? What pressure is the best to hold it tightly without marring it with pliers? I learned on the cheapest wire available so i did not have to think THAT much about the money i was ruining with my failed attempts. You can get these in most craft or

Then SOPA and PIPA have the power to effect you drastically. These bills will take away your freedom to use the internet and go to the websites you love.
As a protest of #SOPA and #PIPA (The Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act) two pieces of legislation that are up for debate once again on January 18, 2012, I will not be online.
This applies to everyone! Share this message as much as you can and don't allow your freedoms to be stolen away.
These bills are not dead. Even gigantic websites like Wikipedia and Tumblr are taking part. However, this doesn't mean that you shouldn't take part; this movement needs you.
Like TimberClipse said...
"A number of people are asking why this is important. It is first off important to remember that one of the reasons I am sharing this on deviantART is dA is one of the websites that SOPA could seriously hurt. As is YouTube. Facebook. Wikipedia.

What is it? A state of being that exists when needs or wants are not being fulfilled and the desire to have those needs or wants satisfied.
On a basic level, humans have needs. I hope we are familiar with Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs because that is what I'm about to draw from. If not, here's a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow%27s_hierarchy_of_needs .

this is a contest for a character for the "Anima: Gate of Memories" video game.
I will be very clear, there will be NO PAYMENT for any winners here. You enter if you want to do this, and we are in no way trying to scam anyone of doing free work.
What the winner will get out of this contest:
1. the winner's character will be 3D modeled, and put into the game as a character inside the game and story. We will work to incorporate this character into the story, without him or her just standing around for nothing.
2. the winner's full name will be in the credits.
3. This character will be copyrighted primarily to this game, you are allowed to use the artwork for your portfolio, but may be a bit complicated if you want to sell him/her off to a new client. Details of copyright can be discussed with the winner.
What we are looking for:

5 Ruts You'd Better Not Fall Into As A Writer1. Seeking validation on the outside and getting shocked when you get critique. Validation comes from within, folks. Hard life lesson, but there you are. First of all, every artist of any kind has to learn to tell themselves they've done good work even in the face of their detractors. (One just hopes they balance it out with taking valid critique into consideration so they improve.) If you can't, you're not going to accomplish much. Second, I'm not saying that encouragement and fans and book deals aren't very nice things, but to the creative process they can be massive distractions. I read recently that a core of stillness is necessary to the creative process, and the more distracted I get, the more I understand it. I have seen entirely too many writers (and by this I mean full-grown adults who should be emotionally mature and everything) seek validation in a desperate and pathetic way, and get outraged when — gasp — someone tells them their writing could improve.

Think of a word/adjective you don't like being called. Tell a story about someone (NOT YOU) fitting this adjective. Something bad should happen to them that should teach them a lesson and they end up redeeming themselves in the end.

Write a story about something that was better left unsaid but was actually spoken.
Yes, I'm phoning this one in because phoning it in is better than skipping out on my responsibilities. I'd rather phone in a prompt than not post one at all. I am not happy about this but I think there can be some good results because you guys are smart and talented. You can think of this one as a softball or a breather all you want, won't change the fact that I'll come back with something to kick your butts later on.
Word count minimum is 2000. No vignettes/single scenes. Any POV, any genre.
It is due at the end of October.

This year, I'm back at it with a bit of a twist!

Rules For Entry
1. You can only enter one collaborative work into the contest.
2. You can work in groups of 2-3 people.

Write a story from the point of view of the family pet.
There are two options:
1. The pet can be the main character (and the only pet in the household)
2. The pet observes their "owner" but the actions and decisions the owner makes affect the pet
Things to consider:
The pet itself.
What kind of pet? Was it a rescue or a result from a pet-olympian breeder system? Did it adopt the family? The mind of a mutt is different than the mind of a specific dog breed. And Siamese cats are much different from Ragdolls. What would their "personalities" be?
And no, we're not anthropormorphizing them, either. No pets may talk to their owners. Owners can obviously talk to the pets but there are no exchanges of dialogue between them. The use of italics for the pet's thoughts are acceptable if needed.
What about exotics?

Devious Journal EntryThat doesn't look right. Something off about her eyebrows. No...maybe it's her forehead. Nope...it's her hairline. Gotta be. It's too low. Or too high maybe. CRAP! Something's off, but I cant figure out what. You know...it could be her jaw line. Too wide. Nope. Now it's too narrow and her face looks long. Put that back, but the chins definitely too big. Makes her look manish. Yeah, that's it..that's working! But...now her mouth looks a little weird. The lips are too big or something. Damn it, why did I try to make her smiling?

Someone is right for the first time in their life.
The main character should be between six and ten years old. Children's fiction. First-person POV.
Channel that inner child, folks. Dig deep. Summer's almost over. The real world is closing in. Give us some juicy conflict. Just because it's a children's story doesn't mean it has to be innocent but leave the predictable dark cliches at the door. No abuse of any sort, I don't want to read about a kid getting hit or diddled.
Word count: between 1500 and 2000
Due date: August 31, 2013
I've never written a children's story before. Honestly, I'd have no idea what to do or where to start. Should be interesting once I pick it up again.
Note finished stories to me here or at my personal page. Any and all questions will be answered as so
Sculpture commissionsHi my name is Jareth Bustamante,Sculpture commissions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You can own a one of a kind sculpture for yourself or even have a few copies of you sculpture that you commission from me.
For the future these are the prices . I can't necessarily put a solid price until I know what is to be sculpted (estimate pricing after examples).
Leave me a note if you are interested (in the note put a description of the piece wanting to be commissioned such as height and a picture)
I am open to sculpt a variety of things such as cartoons, comics book characters, minecraft, etc.
Here are some examples of my artwork to demonstrate my ability:
Venom vs carnage:
My mutant turtle (original concept)
Some korra sculpts
If you are still looking at this I will try to explain the pricing.
My work is very good quality and and it is at an affordable price for a personal sculpture.
