BADASS EATING And DRINKING Contest!Hello artists who love Badasses! :iconbadassplz:BADASS EATING And DRINKING Contest!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
We've got a new contest for you!
BADASS EATING AND DRINKING!
The important thing is that it's about badasses consuming food or drink in a suitably awesome way.
This contest is open to original characters and fan works alike.
There's a lot of ways to do this. Possible ingredients include...
-Food or drink that is badass in nature. Fearsome beasts that tried to eat you first, or alcoholic drinks powerful enough to melt your bones.
-A badass character consuming the food or drink. Boozing it up while standing on top of defeated foes, drinking a flaming drink. shoving an entire roast boar down his mouth.
-A badass forcing a non-badass to eat something he doesn't want to. You WILL like green eggs and ham!
Any combination of the above or something different, those where what came to our minds.
-In case it's not obvious, MAKE IT BADASS!

InterceptedOn the outskirts of the Drake Empire, their radar would present 4 foreign, unidentified bodies, which upon jumping in the said system, headed towards a planet within drake territory. Just after them, 3 other signals appeared on the radars - these ones just "warping in" instead of the more conventional FTL drive, and catching up to them in a rather big ease. The 4 ships, bandits and pirates, had assaulted the neutral halcyon scout ships and injured a halcyon - turning the squadron of rather harmless seeming ships into a hateful, murderous force.Intercepted9 months ago in Personal More Like This
They gave chase - the 4 ships having tears in their hulls, burning, and sending mayday signals, denouncing themselves as pirates and bandits, and requesting to be taken prisoners - a move which usually would be taken if the pirates expected to be annihilated.
The 3 halcyon ships, smaller, had some battle scars, but didn't seem to take much impacts beyond that - this could be taken as many possible ideas of how it occurred, but at the end o
Garrus Hate New DA Layout - User Menu Fix AddedAs you have seen DA in their infinite wisdom have (yet again) not been listening to the members and gone off and changed the very thing that was working, convenient and familiar. What bugs me the most is the personal menu which they have shoveled to the far top of the screen, out of sight.Garrus Hate New DA Layout - User Menu Fix Added4 months ago in Personal More Like This
A vast majority of the DA users spend most of their time in that menu. Checking personal messages and notifications. They don't spend it on the front page. So why the hell would DA push the main feature into a corner of the interface? Everyone reads from left to right for crying out loud. The general though behind this seems to be!
"Here's something that don't need to be changed, so we need to change it for no other reason than to annoy"
Months of design and work DA says. But not once did they stop to ask the members if this was a good idea. And the response have been massively negative. Get a grip DA. Making decisions that goes contra to any logical t

A word or phrase that is not formal or literary and is used in ordinary or familiar conversation. synonyms: slang, idioms, patois, dialect.
Examples: whatcha, gotta, face on, ovver.
I’m sure you’ve had a good telling off by your teachers for using colloquial language inappropriately in your writing. I’ve had essays returned with the word “too informal” scrawled along the margin or a big red exclamation mark next to a certain word, who hasn’t? What just me? Oh right… my bad!
So WHY would we use colloquial language in our writing, after years of tackling the angry red pen?
I know we’re not supposed to judge a book by its over – or a person by their accent – but it happens. You can tell us a lot about a character by the kind of language they use. Are they all gangsta, dropping hooded verbs

Here's some tips that may not get you a consistent spot on the front page right away, but that will definitely help getting some watchers and friends, whether you already have some, or not.
First, let me make clear that this is only about 'good' attention – if you just want, say, a certain pageview count, there are probably better ways. This article is for those who would like some people to take them serious as an artist and to actively watch them.
Also note that you needn't follow all of the tips below, but it's recommendable to follow at least 3 of them. Just one or two will not usually get you very far.
So here we go! :iconeagerpee:

O que são OCS? Original Caracter é um personagem original feito pela pessoa, ou seja, não é um fanart. Existem half-OCs que são aqueles personagens originais feitos dentro de um universo já existente. Por exemplo: Pegar um Pikachu e dar características próprias para ele, personalidade e aparência. É um OC, mas é de um universo que já existe, Pokémon. OCs realmente originais não fazem parte de um universo pré-existente, a menos que esse universo seja o

Tools of the TradeHey guys. I figured I'd go ahead and do a FAQ journal entry. Just a basic list of the tools I'm currently using for my marker work. I have a new tutorial for my markers that I'll post when I'm able to share the art I used for the progress shots. Feel free to fire away with any questions and hopefully, this can be a go to guide for basic info on my tools. I'm not going to talk about oil painting materials as I'm still figuring all that out and I doubt an answer I give today will hold up in the future.Tools of the Trade2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok Here goes...
Markers: Prismacolor Cool and French grey markers. I think "Copic" has become another word for "marker" these days, so it's assumed that I'm using Copics for all of my work, but I actually use Prismacolor for all of my figures and detail work and only use Copic markers for backgrounds. I use to use "Warm" greys but I like the sepia look of French more now. I also occasionally use Copic color markers when I'm doing a full color marker piece. Why do I like Prismacolor markers
Differentiating Your Style: ANIMEI see a lot of people saying "I have been trying soo hard to develop my own style! How do you make your own style? I am so stuck in ____ style blabblabla" - I've been asked this and I've seen a lot of people freaking out about it and worrying about their "style" allll over the place lately. I understand to some degree why they are upset, and what they want- they want their own "unique" way of drawing. Since art is such a personal thing, why would you want it to look like someone else's art? How can this be achieved by drawing just anime or a style that is already developed and popular, how can it possibly be "your own"? How can it be done well? I don't think they realize exactly what this means or how other people have such "distinct" styles and what makes them so distinct, and for most of these people, it's not quite what they think it is, or takes something I don't think most people think about. I really want to talk about this because I feel like, at least for the people I see complDifferentiating Your Style: ANIME3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
PE: How to Make a Large EmoticonHow to Make a Large EmoticonPE: How to Make a Large Emoticon2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have been asked many times how I make my big emoticons. How I shade it, dither it, etc, so I am going to make a step by step tutorial on how I make large emoticons. Even if you already know how to, you might find something useful in this. Be aware that I am using photoshop elements 3.0, so this technique can be preformed in almost any program that has layers and custom pencil brush sizes and or a hollow and filled circle tool. If your program doesn't have layers or adjustable circles of any kind (whether it be the pencil tool or the circle tool), you should be able to get around it somehow, but if you can't figure it out, I would recommend gimp. It works on Macs, Windows, or Linux computers. You can get a free download at gimp.org.
Start by making a hollow circle. The color of it should be a really dark shade of the color you want the emote to be. I'm making a blue emote, so

And I know it may not be seen as having any place on this site but seeing as how someone has inquired advice (gods know why someone would ask me), I figured this is as good a place to address it as any other. Also, you don’t have to read if you don’t want to. I decided to make a post seeing that the person wants to remain anonymous and that I will respect their wishes. I also want to help others like us.
