Since a young age, I have always been fascinated with flight. Growing up, my parents were good friends with a group of pilots. They specialized in cinema stunt work for movies. Every time I had the opportunity to go up in an airplane or helicopter, I took it. In the photo below, I'm in the center seat of a friend's helicopter. It was so fun!
As a youth, I would draw all types of planes -- jet fighters being the most exciting. Growing up on a healthy dose of Star Wars and G. I. Joe also fueled my love for flight. Other kids were infatuated with jets, too, and could rattle off all sorts of information about their technical aspects. I constantly checked out huge reference books from the local library because I was always more interested in drawing them than studying how fast they could fly or how much thei

SO, it goes like this; anyone is free to post their character reference here, and I will randomly choose some characters I'll draw. The pictures will be flat-coloured/coloured clean scetches, and I'll post them in patches once atleast 3 of them is ready.
Please don't get disappointed if you don't see your character immediately - I'm planning to do these randomly from time to time, so who knows if I'll choose your character later!

Ok so I have been getting a lot of messages recently from people saying they have the same problem with paint tool SAI so I decided to update this journal so everyone can go on working and saving files in SAI.
I don't know if there is a way to completly fix this bug but there definately is a way to avoid it!
I would like to thank FlumpyDuck for her very helpfull response:
"If you open a PSD in SAI for some reason it has a meltdown and won't save anything as .sai, so if - like I had - you've just done a couple hours' work and you don't want to lose everything, you /can/ save it as a .psd file and keep editing it from there. If you absolutely need it to be a .s
the thing about public domain is...Just because art is in the public domain does not mean the artist loses their rights over it.the thing about public domain is...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
just a friendly reminder that just because art is in the public domain does not mean it loses copyright value
and no artists you do not need to pay to copyright your work it is an automatic thing.
you only relinquish copyright if you state so yourself that people can use your work without permission
so unless you do that
they are stealing.
-just something you learned in college that I thought had relevance here-
have a nice day :3
Poem - Impressive WorldThere once was a game called Impressive TitlePoem - Impressive World2 years ago in Personal More Like This
IT stayed online for quite a long while
But the fun times had to end
as the hackers came in
and FeralHeart made IT go out of style.
There now was a member; Big Ban
Who thought up a very good plan
with his coding skills at the best
he decided to hack -- err I mean test
the files of IT while he can.
.. as for IT shutting down, understand?
A year or two have gone and past
Flametail wanting his IT dreams to last
But the people he hired
had surely backfired
and due to this, ITr had died really fast.
Bigban had his own IT dreams too
and being hired for ITr, guess what he'd do?
Since Flametail was so easy to trick
BigBan stole the source code very quick
And it was enough to make Ritza's nuts blue.
After a few months of lying low
BigBan decided " ITr had to go.."
So he worked day and night
making sure his server was right
and released I.W. so everyone can know.
ITR did not last very long
but BB was still in the wrong
The "hack" attacks from ITr was

About PricingAlright, I know this is a huge thing in the adoptable community (or, well, the art community in general). I just want to say that, while I know for some my prices may be seen as overpriced, in most cases they are auction adoptables and thus people only pay what they're comfortable with (and whether that be $10 or $100+, please be respectful to the people who do choose to spend their money as they like).About Pricing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I personally feel the art community is urged to underprice themselves. You don't have to agree with me, but that's what I've gathered from seeing artists over the years. But I'm going to talk about my art for this, specifically adoptables, so here's my breakdown: people are purchasing, not only character art, but the time it took to make as well as a character design. What that may be worth to one person may be worth something completely different to another, so I ask that you please respect that.
For auction prices going too high--I can't agree that there should be a point where
Making an Orig. Species - FAQ and GuideOkay, so I have gotten numerous notes and comments asking me for critiques and suggestions on their up-n-coming original species'.Making an Orig. Species - FAQ and Guide3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now, a lot of you guys out there are probably saying,
"Ugh what's she trying to say her dogs are just fat with swirl tailz!11"
Well, that may be, but if they were really as plain as a fat, swirly tailed anthro, they probably wouldn't sell as well nor be renowned for the traits that set them apart from the rest, which I'll delve into later.
So, here are some tips to creating something fun, successful (if you put in the work), and original!
For starters, pick an animal or creature to base your species off of.
Pick an animal you don't see used too often, OR pick something you KNOW you can give original traits.
What I mean by the above statement, is that if you pick a common animal, like a dog or cat, and basing them off of drinks or biomes (desert, forest, beaches), ec

Panthera by $chix0r
When we launched the One Cat, One Fruit, One Clock Contest, we asked you to create artwork using three seemingly random things; a cat, a fruit, and a clock. We're excited that so many artists participated and we were really impressed by the creative ideas that were submitted.
The judges narrowed down those entries to 25 semi-finalists, and now the world-wide Chairman of Fotolia Inc., Oleg Tscheltzoff, has selected the final three winners.
Congratulations to the winners and thank you all for participating! And don't forget to watch #StockProject —there might be a new contest someday just saying.

Education Connection: Hunting and AgricultureWelcome to today's version of my educational babbling. Let's start by laying a few ground rules.Education Connection: Hunting and Agriculture2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This journal's aim is to open your eyes to a whole new experience, and maybe teach you a thing or two about what's right and what's wrong with farming, hunting, the fur market, raising animals for food, and the ecosystem involving all of these things. I know many of you parade around going I HATE FUR, YOU MURDERED THOSE POOR ANIMALS JUST FOR THEIR FUR, or you say things like I HATE MEAT BECAUSE WE'RE SLAUGHTERING INNOCENT ANIMALS FOR NO REASON AT ALL. In a lot of ways, you are correct, but in a lot of ways you are also so VERY wrong. This journal will show you what you should hate, why you should hate it, and even though we should all hate it, why these things still go on and why they will continue to.
A few things I would really like you to keep in mind before continuing. I am not here to make everyone happy, nor am I here to pamper any one of you. If you're an active watcher of mine at al

bored with everything else but each other.
for the moments we deservingly grew closer,
indivisible, thick as thieves.
for the feeling we got when we knew we were crazy about one another,
we had found someone we were ready to stick it out for,
to stick it out with.
with you absent everything has lost appeal, lacking glory.
so much of my security came from your approving smile.
it's quieter now, cheerless.
the silence deafening,
unhappy not knowing, reminiscing about the suspended.
for when your knees fell weak,
for when my eyes awed into yours,
for when it was as though the significance called for a clashing of cymbals and beating drums,
for the moments that were majestically unparalleled -
i did it for them; the crescendos.
