Contest! - Now Closed / WINNERSHi Guys, it's Contest Time!Contest! - Now Closed / WINNERS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may have noticed with the jewellery I have made over the past year or so that I add little stories and things to them, in this contest I'd love these stories to inspire you to draw, write or create anything based on these stories that I have come up with!
You're free to elaborate on these stories, add to them and draw inspiration from them, you're totally free here but you have a better chance of winning by sticking as close to your chosen story as possible c:
For example, if you like the sound of a character, you can draw that person or if you like a certain story and want to write more about it then that would be perfect!

My deviantART journey (3 years today)Hello my little squishies ♥My deviantART journey (3 years today)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today is my 3-year anniversary as x-SquishyStar-x! So, I thought I would take a moment to tell you a little bit about my deviantART journey and how I got to where I am today.
WARNING: YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE SOME OF MY FIRST ARTWORKS WHICH I HAVE HIDDEN FROM THE WORLD UNTIL THIS POINT IN AN EFFORT TO PROTECT YOUR BEAUTIFUL EYES FROM THEIR HIDEOUSNESS. PLEASE FORGIVE ME.
I really hope the links work otherwise this is just awkward...
Let the journey begin...
I first joined deviantART in 2009 as x-MysticStar-x. I drew Pokemon (like this and this), mainly, but also took lots of photos.
In 2010 I discovered QueenOfDorks. She was my first ever real ins

Is it better to possess a thing of beauty, or to experience the ultimate consummation of oneness with that beautiful thing by actually consuming it... and being left only with the memory of its beauty?

Reading is the opposite of dyingI've recently started reading The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe. I rarely read new releases, mostly because I'm cheap, but also because I have a book list that goes on into eternity. The only queue hopping that happens are new books by my favorite authors, which Schwalbe is not. Well, at least not yet.Reading is the opposite of dying3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The book is a memoir framed by the books Schwalbe and his mother read during the last years (maybe months, I'm not sure, I'm only a chapter in) of her life. It is a rather brilliant way to tell a story, which is what initially drew me in to the book (plus a handful of really glowing reviews). And I'm glad I pushed aside my normal list if only for this paragraph that appears in the very first chapter:
"We all have a lot more to read than we can read and a lot more to do than we can do. Still, one of the things I learned from Mom is this: Reading isn't the opposite of doing; it's the opposite of dying. I will never be able to read my mother's favorite books without thi

The story is based on Greek myths but in many aspects it doesn't follow the original description since I wanted to customize it to my own needs.
Preparing the following description was really fun for me, especially choosing the voice actors for each character ;]. I really wanted to do such a thing a long time ago.

Artwork copyright © Wilson Williams, Jr.
With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren’t sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how do you respond?

It's quite a LOT of books. But consider that I've collected them over the course of the past 10 years. I still re-read them whenever I find time, and learn new things from them.
More than half of my books are in English, because that's where the good stuff is at.
Titles in other languages than English are written in cursive.

My Progression as an Animator at DisneyA friend of mine is writing a book on animation fundamentals and asked me for a "paragraph or two" (which I can't do) on the subject of timing. I considered it and ended up writing about my progression of learning while a Disney animator in the traditional animation days. It was good therapy for me to really think this through and consider the order of things. I hope you enjoy it. "Like" or "fav" this so others will see it too.

My Progression As A Disney Animator
by Tom Bancroft
Walt Disney is quoted as saying that it takes 10 years to make a great animator.
When I was first coming out of California Institute of the Arts and joining a Disney internship in 1988, hearing that quote was devastating. 10 years? That's FOREVER! I wanted to be a full-fledged Disney animator in TWO years! I rationalized that that was a way of thinking from the 40s and today, we move at a quicker pace, so-
