I have decided to not continue my HG NuzlockeAfter a long, hard look at my options and weighing my current predicament, I have decided it would be best to not continue the comic as I just don't have the time nor the energy to do so anymore.I have decided to not continue my HG Nuzlocke2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a great run, I love all of you for sticking it out with me, but I just can't do it anymore.
Here's the final update of the series.

The many ways to start a digital paintingThere's really no one way that I start a digital painting. Many people have asked, so I did a short list of how I start my images. I don't think it's all of them as no one method seems to work the best for me. If I'm not getting anything with one method, I'll switch to another method and try that.The many ways to start a digital painting2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You can create a digital painting by starting it with a Base, apply Color, then apply Texture. You use a variety of brushes the entire time no matter if you're on the base, the color, or the texture pass.
Start with a Base:
1. Paint in grey scale. Use subtle variations in the value. Make sure you use a wide range of value say from 2 to 8. Also, vary the values during the transition. For example, if you're painting 3, add value 2, and some value 4.
1.1 Grey Scales with an Image Overlay. Slap down some gray values, overlay an image that's close to the colors you need. Use regular layers to further define the image. I find this me

Welcoming 2013 and a Challenge!Greetings Mythical Masters of Fable and LoreWelcoming 2013 and a Challenge!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
With 2012 nearly through and 2013 just around the corner, I figured it was high time I brought a little life back into this group. Being busy in 2012 prevented me from devoting more time here, but I plan on changing that in 2013. So to kick us off, I propose a challenge. Bellow you will find a list of mythical creates from various mythologies. There are 52 of them, one entry for each week of the year. Your goal, draw them all (or as many as possible).
All work must be by you and original. You can not resubmit old work as part of the project.
Please label each work either in description or title that its part of the project and what number and creature its representing.
I know time is an issue for most people, as it is for me. These entries do NOT have to be epic masterpieces; sketches are acceptable though finished work is always proffered.

WELL THERE MY BELOVED FANARTISTS FRIENDS BE CAREFUL FOR THERE IS A FACEBOOK PAGE THAT REFUSES TO GIVE YOU CREDITS FOR YOUR HARDWORK JUST BECAUSE THEY SIMPLY FOUND IT ON GOOGLE!!!
ISN'T THAT NICE???
Well now, seriously
I follow some facebook pages.
To tell you the truth I follow the ones that credit artists for their work, because I find it nice to click on the link they provide of their galleries and almost die of happiness seeing other wonderful artworks from the same person on their own site.
But yesterday a Saint Seiya Page I follow had a funny comic stolen by a famous Anime Page on Facebook. The ADMs claim they found it on google already the way it was. Without the SSpage logo. And they put their logo on that comic, posted on their page as if it was theirs. Because seriously, when you put your logo on a work you found on internet you are automatically saying IT IS YOURS! And, of course

Unfortunately, Lotus Flower didn't quite make it into the top 10% of the shorts category in the AOFAs. But, the good news is, due to there being a number of technical issues during their first ever Spring Showcase, Lotus will be re-screened during the 2014 Autumn Showcase! The film will be eligible for votes once more! Many thanks to everyone who took the time to support Lotus this time around, and I'll keep you all posted on the next set of AOFA festival dates.

SAY NO TO FREE ARTEvery day, there are more and more posts on here seeking "artists" for everything from auto graphics to comic books to corporate logo designs. More people are finding themselves in need of some form of illustrative service.SAY NO TO FREE ART7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But what they're NOT doing, unfortunately, is realizing how rare someone with these particular talents can be.
To those who are "seeking artists", let me ask you; How many people do you know, personally, with the talent and skill to perform the services you need? A dozen? Five? One? none?
More than likely, you don't know any. Otherwise, you wouldn't be posting on here to find them.
And this is not really a surprise.
In this country, there are almost twice as many neurosurgeons as there are professional illustrators. There are eleven times as many certified mechanics. There are SEVENTY times as many people in the IT field.
So, given that they are less rare, and therefore less in demand, would it make sense to ask your mechanic to work on your car for free? Woul

Contest Officially OpenSo, even though I don't have half as many watchers as my friends and can't really draw, I was wondering if anybody would be interested in taking part in a puffer competition. See, one thing I dislike about dA, is the lack of variety in competitions - don't get me wrong, the majority of ideas are fantastic, but in most cases only artists can participate. I'm a writer and I find it quite frustrating that I never get a chance to join in the fun or compete for the prizes.Contest Officially Open3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, here's the thing. As far as prizes go, I have no points to my name to award you. I do however have other talents. I can make cards, I can sing, I can doodle plushie characters and claw machines I write, and I also make bookmarks and paper-craft stuffs. So if you took part in my compy the prizes would be a mix of physical prizes and online ones - this of course would mean you would either have to be willing to give me your address, or accept one of the online ones.
Now comes the fun bit to plant the seeds of temptation

I fail at artI was going trough old binders and found some of my ancient "art". Some of it was hilariously bad so of course, being shameless as I am, now it's time to share.I fail at art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is how I was drawing when I was a teenager, something around 15-17.
Behold my weaboo phase! Yes, I was drawing animu. I never got a good grip on that style so it's all hideous.
kawaii desu ne?
That hand. That space between eyes. That fabric, hair, expression, composition ...well everything.
The next few images I would call "look at me, imma ahrtis for realz" series.
Deep. Deep as a puddle.
Remember kids. If you fail at anatomy just add random lines. Random ass lines make everything better. Yep.
Just look at this person's face. Don't you want to punch it? I do, so very very much.
Dear, sixteen years old akreon, you fucking suck. Don't ever come back.
It's time to thank you....for being awesome.It's time to thank you2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been inactive at dA a long time and on top of that, I haven't had enough courage to respond comments, gift arts etc, and I'm really sorry for that. The reasons aren't too simple to explain, but I've got help with my, umm, problems(??) and for a long time I feel like it will be ok.
And big thanks for my progress go to you guys. So far the reacts to my extremely late comments have been a really positive surprise. I mean, the more time I wasted hesitating the more I became scared of how people will react to my late response. But now, when I finally managed to pull myself together and began to try to fix all the problems my inactivity has caused, people's attitudes towards me have been unbelieveable. Just... You're awesome, you know that? ;v; I hope so because you should.
Thank you so much. ♥
Just wanted to tell you that. ^^ From now on, I try to be more active at deviantART. It doesn't mean I will be here 24/7 because, well, I have life outside of t

Usually it's fine with me and I've enjoyed some wonderful creations based on my photography.
I thought it might be a nice idea to feature some of these artworks in my journal or blog.
The rules according to reference use can be found in my signature, but since I get asked so often here they are again:
♥ Yes, You can use my photos as a reference for drawings/paintings etc.
♥ For commercial use, please send me a note
♥ My photos aren't stock, so photo manipulations of my work are not allowed.
♥ Proper credits (link back to the original) are appreciated
♥ And I'd love to see the result, so please let me know (through a note)when your artwork is finished.

Why I Cannot Stand Axis Powers HetaliaEDIT 5/11/2014: Guys. GUYS. STAAAHHHP. This journal is fucking FIVE YEARS OLD, and that's about how old all of you are acting. I would say sorry for ~ruining your life~ by venting about your favorite sparkly animoo, but I'm not. And if your whole identity is really tied up in a fucking fandom, you have serious issues. Seek help. Disabling comments when I can, because whether you're trying to prove some stupid point to me, defend me, or logic this out with me, you're all equally retarded.

So a few friends have been asking me lately what I've got against this inexplicably popular series that seems to have popped up recently called Axis Powers Hetalia. They love it... and I HATE it. Hate it hate it hate it!!! But the mere fact that it fills me with boiling rage everytime I think about it is not a good enough reason for them, so I guess I'll try to piece together why it pisses me off so very much. -I'm- not even entirely sure why I d

sorry for kiriban winner, you will be featured soon, I did not forget you I just write some sad journals and my mood is far from nice, so this is not the best time for kiriban.
By the way, there is a new one: send me a printscreen of 1 022 222 pageviews and you will win a feature (no feature for porn or animal cruelty, ok).
Well, I have news about wolves, as I have promised to keep you informed.
If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!
Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.
So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.
The ZOO repeatedly applied te
