Illustration Contest Mark II (One week to go!)4.23 The deadline approacheth! For those of you still working on your entries, better get a move on!Illustration Contest Mark II (One week to go!)3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This was such a success last year that I'm doing it again for my 25th birthday!
Pick your favorite story from the list below and draw a scene or characters from it! I try to be diverse in my writing; Action, drama, science fiction, romance, humans, robots... There should be something in there for everybody. This year's pool has some old classics and some new favorites. Some characters have reference pictures already, but some have never been visually depicted before. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Some stories contain characters that belong to other people but feel free to draw them as well. You may enter as many times as you like.
Artist Alley for BeginnersHave you had a table at Artist Alley before? If you haven't I'm going to give you a list of suggestions for manning your table for the first time. These suggestions are not in any particular order.Artist Alley for Beginners5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Do not go overboard.
You may think your artwork and crafts are really great, but it always pays to be just a little bit cautious when having your first artist alley table. The reason for this is simple, you have to test your work in the consumer market. If you become really excited and buy 100 prints for your first convention and only 5 get sold... well you are out a lot of money. If you have many prints have small quantities printed, such as 5 - 10 prints and keep track of what prints sell this will be a good indicator for what prints are most popular.
2. Be reasonable on your prices.
If you are new to the art world you may think you can make a killing selling anime/manga prints. It can be tempting to want to charge $5, $10, $15 even $20 for one of your

REACH FOR THE STARS/SANCTUARY
You may choose one of two themes this month - either 'Reach for the Stars' or 'Sanctuary.' You may also attempt to mesh them together in some creative fashion, but you aren't required to. If you'd rather just run with a single theme, that is perfectly acceptable!
As is the norm (well, new norm...so make that norm-ish...) of color-me-club contests, debates surged forth from prospective contest participants expressing th
Welcome Catalina!My dear friends,Welcome Catalina!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me introduce you to Catalina:
This is life's second greatest gift to me; the first being my son Ben.
She was born quite ahead of schedule this past Sunday 5th, surprising us all with a 10-day skip from her scheduled birth date this Wednesday 15th. Apparently, she couldn't wait to meet everyone outside
Both she and her mom are doing fantastic and giving dad the broadest smile he's had in years
I'll see you all soon in-between diapers and bottles!

Nadia and the secret of blue waterWarning : Nostalgia-ridden review XDNadia and the secret of blue water3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nadia and the secret of blue water is a serie that will always have a special place in my heart, as it was one of the first anime I ever saw. I just re-watched it a little while ago and I was delighted to see it hasn't gotten old at all
The story is set in 1889 in a world in turmoil with rumors of sea monsters attacking ships, and a mysterious force attempting to restore the Atlantean empire to its former glory. It starts at the Paris International Exposition, a great gathering of culture, science, and technology. Jean is helping his uncle on their entry for the International Flying Machine Contest, but the boy then decides to take a break and follow an intriguing and acrobatic girl, Nadia, who is chased by three suspicious individuals who are after the blue jewel she wears around her neck. Jean doesn't realize where he is getting himself to, thrown into an adventure that will lead him from Antarctic to Africa, in the sky an
More trailers for Stitch! Season 3Hey everyone! I just found 4 new commercials for the English dub of Stitch! Season 3, which finally premieres on January 12th in Asia, and hopefully a UK air date won't be too far behind. Disney Cinemagic is still playing reruns of Season 2 right now, but I've got my Sky+ set to record each episode that comes on, so I'll always be alert of when the new episodes arrive. Anyhow, here are all the new commercials I found:More trailers for Stitch! Season 32 years ago in Personal More Like This

A poetic summary of why we love Star TrekOkay, so someone recently asked me, "What exactly is so great about this Star Trek thing?" This is what I answered.A poetic summary of why we love Star Trek3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Space. The Final Frontier.
"Star Trek are stories about philanthropy and friendship, about honor and duty, about doing the right thing in the face of adversity, how to do this and still keep your humaneness and qualities, how to overcome darkness without becoming darkness yourself, and how to stay human amidst machines.
It is about multifaceted, complex characters that are going through their own development while their personality grows and unfolds as they work with each other. You can identify with these characters, you suffer with them and you laugh with them.
Their stories are told in thrilling, imaginative, original and powerful episodes full of wit, logic and complexity, sometimes breathtaking, sometimes funny. Strange worlds and galaxies represent different philosophies, peaceful aliens, belligerent barbarians, lifeforms that don't know the concept of morality and
New idea! Post comment if you want it!Ah ha! I got an idea how to do the whole sharing thing, and to make it a little less confusing. I'll use these journals to write descriptions of what I have in store as far as fanfics go, and then you guys just comment at the bottom of what you're interested in reading. I mean lets face it, there isn't a cartoon where we like some episodes more than others, right? So this way, you guys can pick out which eps you want to read without too much hassle. As such, here are the current selection:New idea! Post comment if you want it!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
