They're part of my icon family (http://kittykatkanie.deviantart.com/journal/Noldorin-Icon-Family-Updated-10-5-218743173), but since they're not really related by blood (well, maybe they are but Tolkien never really specified it) to the actual family, I made plz accounts for them

I tried to create an optimal route for them to get across the entire globe. Some people will have to send them farther than others, but I can't do much about that, unfortunately. The order in which you'll get them is as follows:

Anonymous Annatar 2013Hi Everyone!Anonymous Annatar 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it’s that time of year again. Once more, dear old Annatar has to do penance for everything he did wrong during those long years and all that nasty business with that ring (and yes, we do all know that it was so much duller looking than the shiny objects that Uncle Fëanor and dear Celebrimbor made). And no, I don’t know why Eru thought that the correct punishment was to send him to break into people’s houses.
This also means it’s time for our annual Anonymous Annatar exchange! Which means that we also have to go over all those serious guidelines that we need to follow, or else we risk repeating the grand winter incident of Fourth Age 347. And we all know that we don’t want a repeat of certain family members giving into despair at the idea that they weren’t loved and trying to drown themselves in the sea. Especially since the ‘sea’ was actually Olwë’s bathtub, and I don’t think he’s forgiven certa
A concise guide on how to get better at artSo youre a kid looking down at your anime or comic characters and wondering why after a few years of doodling things arent looking like how you imagine them in your head.

You want to get better at representational art.
Here on deviantart its often the case where a noobie will ask a question and another noobie will answer with the very uninspired answer of "practice practice practice." At its core this advice is sound, but the noobie-teacher has just regurgitated what he or she has heard a thousand times over from other would-be noobie-teachers and has not expressed much else. Diligence is the key, but without a direction or goal this diligence might be

Hello, welcome to Dolling 101! We'll be going over all the basics that every beginner doller should know. There's a lot, so let's get to it!
Lesson 1: Terminology/Vocabulary
What is a Doll?
It might help to begin this article by telling you what you're reading about! A doll, or as we call them on DeviantArt, Digital Dolls, are small graphics, usually pixel-art, of people and characters. People create these by taking a base body another person has made, and creating art on it - designing clothes and hair, and turning the blank template into whatever kind of character they can imagine.
I will go over dolls more in detail, but that's the very basic description. Please, read on!
What is a Base?
Bases! You're probably familiar with this term. That's right, those pixel line-arts of bald/naked people that

Fire Alpaca -- A free Paint Tool Sai substituteWant to get Paint Tool Sai, but don't have the money to buy it? Don't wanna pirate it?Fire Alpaca -- A free Paint Tool Sai substitute2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've found a really neat and FREE art program called Fire Alpaca that is just as good as the main thing.
Similar to: Paint Tool Sai
Fire Alpaca is a simple drawing program that is very similar to Sai. It pretty much has most of what Sai has. It has a really super smooth ink pen to use that I like better than Sai's honestly. It however lacks Sai's paper texture function, the blur tool in it is terrible and won't really blend colors together (but you can probably make an appropriate blending watercolor brush for that). It also however does have a lot of features that Sai DOESN'T have, like text, gradient, transparency, grid, perspective lines, bitmap image brushes, blurring filters, and you can make shapes like squares.
- Very EASY to learn how to use. Especially for those who find it difficult to use a new progr

Winners are Shatiel85 and Roxyielle
I need to leave for a while and won't be able to monitor the lottery, so let's say that it will close when I return if the 800.000 are reached while I'm away!
So, looks like I'm something like 500pv away from the 800.000, and since I just finished my previous kiriban, I decided I want to host another one.
No screenshots or number huntings, since nowadays cheating this system seems to be the rule... it will work like a classic lottery instead, a super-fast one:
leave a comment in this journal with a picture of the character you'd like to be portrayed as the kiriban prize; you have time until I hit the 800.000 pageviews to do so.

Do I need a special program?
No! Something as simple as Microsoft Paint, Paint Shop Pro or the Gimp, all of which are free, are all you need to start with pixel art. Well, that and a mouse/touchpad (and a computer ). Photoshop can be used to pixel as well, but it is costly, so unless you plan to use Photoshop for a multitude of digital media, it isn't the best investment for pixel art.
Free downloads of MS Paint and Paint Shop Pro can be found here: http://www.bunnystick.com/tdlc.html
