Undead Hangout/ClubThe MorgueUndead Hangout/Club9 months ago in Personal More Like This
( new location we're thinking about )
So, we're working on zombie adopts right? Well we were thinking it might be cool if we made an undead club.
Picture a grave yard. You locate a mausoleum with the words 'The Morgue' carved over the top.
You go into the mausoleum, flip up the casket doors and head down the steps to a night club.
I imagine its more like a hang out with a bar and stage for live performances.
And a zombie physiologist trying to help people move on. And a seamstress who acts a medical aid.
Idk. I was just kinda rolling with an idea.
Let me know what you guys think?
Welcome to PKMNation!At the southern tip of every region sits a dock where trainers, breeders, and contest connoisseur alike travel to. Why make such a trip you may ask? Well its a wonderful and yet mysterious tale that has a part in how your adventure will begin. It is rumored that somewhere in the middle of the open seas sits an island. Not just any island but an island devout to Pokemon, inhabited by The Pokemon Professor. It is that this very same Professor runs a large lab where she spends day in and day out studying Pokemon. No one has ever seen or visited this Pokemon paradise but what can be said for sure is the excitement that comes from what is delivered from the island itself. From this island, a train continuously ventures on its journey over crisp ocean waters towards the regions with Pelippers and Wingulls roosting within for a long ride. Within the train's bowels Pokemon eggs sit awaiting to be delivered. As the train meets each watery station the docks are filled with ecstatic chatter anWelcome to PKMNation!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The Greatest Experiment in Capitalism: AnalyzedWhat gives the government the right to forcibly redistribute wealth from the rich to fulfill the needs of the poor?The Greatest Experiment in Capitalism: Analyzed3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The above seems to be the battle cry of many free market idealists, which inspired me to write this article. Surprisingly, many people who offer this contention aren't rich, and are unwitting beneficiaries of government control.
My initial thought was a bit cheeky. The middle class is currently paying about 50% of their income in taxes, while the rich pay about 15%. The rich buy politicians to keep it this way. What gives a rich person the right to steal from the middle class not for their needs but for sport?
Although there is a lot of truth to that, it's still important to address the main point: the aversion to the government using force to redistribute wealth. This sounds good in concept, and if you keep it in abstract terms it's hard to disagree with it. However, the supe

It is not a tutorial and I do not have pictures of the process because I didn't think of it when I was making it, and I'm not going to make another.

The Houses of the AcademyHere in Yarelts, the Academy is split into 4 Houses each representing different views of the world which we live in. They stand for what a person will fight for or what their fighting style is like. The four dorms are given the names of the four knights who protected our world eons ago.

History of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefaces2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typefaces are our instruments to construct words and sentences. Of course this very article couldn’t be written without type other than writing by hand and scanning it in, but I wouldn’t know how to save the file or how to access the website to upload it to if I had no access to typefaces. Of course I don’t have to say where type can be found; it’s absolutely everywhere. However, most people don’t consider where typefaces come from. Most of my life and even the first 5 years or so of my design career I was absolutely ignorant of where typefaces came from. I mean, they were just "there" on the computer and I never considered someone actually had to make typefaces for us to use—letter by letter. In this article I will discuss the history of Roman typefaces; how it progressed during the ages, how each style can be recognized and how to select typefaces consciously and logically r
Beanie Shoulder Pony Available NowThe Beanie Pony Pattern is now available in my Etsy shop!Beanie Shoulder Pony Available Now2 years ago in Personal More Like This
All these mane and tail styles come in the pattern.
And here are two of the three wing styles in the pattern (the third are simple folded wings) :
The pattern also includes pieces and instructions for making a magnetic attachment to "pin" the pony to your shirt so it can't fall off your shoulder when you wear it. It's pretty sweet.
I'm still trying to get the last combo package up, but the existing two have been updated to include the Beanie. If you order digital copies I'm going to try to get the first batch out on Friday morning. The first batch of physical copies (whoever orders by about 6pm Friday or so) will probably go out on Saturday.
I'm excited about this and also exhausted. My hands are improving, but making the sample ponies for this pattern was an ordeal (and they didn't come out to my

Well if you're an American citizen, you're protected under that infamous law known as the DMCA, or the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. If you right click your ripped image and select properties, youll be able to see the address where the image is hosted. If its photobucket or some other easily accessible site then you have it easy and you know where to go to find a support email address. If your image is hosted on a dot com, youll need to do a WhoIs search and the name server that is listed will usually give away the company that is physically hosting the site. You can then get in contact with most sites through a webmaster or support email if you take a quick look around their site.
So now you know where your image is, what company is hosting it, and how to get a hold of them, then you scratch your head and ask

You have three options here: Armonia Institute [High School ages 10-18*], Mirage College [College ages: 18+] and NPC. These files are PNGs for all of you who can't work on a layered program, however each of them has links to PSD files in case you want to work with layers.
So, ignoring the color, all apps are basically the same, the only differences would be MC's PSD app contains Major and Minor badges as well [but we'll get to that later] and NPCs don't include Stamps or House Badges. Plus the 'title' of the app.
Again let's ignore the color, right now you would have this:
Epic Resources List - How to Get Awesome at ArtI often get asked how to get better at drawing and painting. While the main answer is practice there are a lot of fantastic resources that will make the journey far easier; below is a list of the ones I have personally found most useful.

Also this is enough material to last you for, literally, years, so get one at a time, study it in detail, then once you're thoroughly finished move on to the next one. Reading a book or watching a dvd doesn't make you better. What makes you better is ingesting the information slowly, pondering and truly understanding it, and then applying it with diligent practice over a long period of time.
So without further ado, here is my...

It contains of 20 separate panels, each of them are meant to show a process of how to draw faces and expressions; so if you are interested, you can try it out here
The learning engine allows you to try practicing on a digital canvas right there on the site, which is really helpful because you're able to see your progress instantly; and hopefully you will find the tutorial I did worth seeing!
There also are some other tutorials; such as male and female anatomy and dragons tutorials; so Wysp is definitely worth checking out, especially for young learning artists
