As some of the taxidermy/pelt collectors know, there’s been a recent influx in people becoming interested in collecting wildlife parts. It’s great to see people becoming interested in taxidermy and such as it’s not an art that is well known. But lately some of the taxidermy community on here has notice way too many people are selling items here and off site that are illegal in general or illegal in their state. Collecting animal parts is not like collecting baseball cards or coins, there are LAWS to them. A lot of members on deviantART don’t seem to get how serious it is if you are caught illegally selling animal parts. We’re talking about $1,000+ fines and even jail time. The federal officers don’t care if you didn’t know the laws or if you’re a kid, your still breaking the law and they will punish you. I always tell new people

5 Pieces of Critique You Should Always Disregard1. "I have a problem with your premise." This is the red flag to end all red flags. I don't care how flimsy the premise is. Every idea has the potential to be a good story. Execution is something else entirely, but if somebody doesn't like your idea: don't listen to them. What they're basically saying is "I am not an Ideal Reader, therefore not your target audience, therefore I am not the right person to critiquing your work." I hate, hate, hate people who think you should be writing for broader audiences than your story is capable of reaching. If you're writing romance, you're writing romance for romance readers. You're not trying to reach hard science fiction readers. Very few people even know what makes a breakout mainstream novel that has high market appeal. If they did, every single book ever written would be Harry Potter. It just doesn't happen. And for somebody to ask you to make that happen is ridiculous and unfair.

You have helped me in so many ways. I wish you would be able to see this. If people spread it around maybe you will but I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the impact you have had on my life. There was a time I was very depressed and didn't think well of myself. I found your videos about a year and a half ago now and I have been hooked since then. I tried to watch all the videos from before that, which I still haven't completed, and I fell in love with the connection you had with your fans. You never changed to get a bigger fan base and you didn't let the fame go to your head. I started to fall for you. Then as time went on, I was in a relationship that I got out of recently with someone who meant well but didn't have time to do anything with me, would rather play games with his friends and push me to the side

They now claim they never had an aussie or border collie now!
The lady that was there today was the same one that told me and my sister to give up. They were rude to my friend like they were to us and said that the other 4 workers that told him the day before they had an aussie LIED. And one of the workers at first started to say that the dog was healing-but stopped mid sentence and said they never had one. They also said that none of their dogs have ever been bitten.
Yesterday, the 4 workers told my friend Davianna the following-
- The dog got bit by another dog and had a big injury on the side of his neck that he obtained by a dog named ACE. I wish I knew what vet they visited, so I can ask if someone brought in an injured dog with a bite.

An Incredible WinLast weekend (Sept. 20th) I watched in awe, humility, and surprise as I won the Federal Duck stamp. The duck stamp is not a postage stamp, but a conservation and hunting stamp, 98% of the sale of which goes directly to buy and protect wetlands. This is a very huge, prestigious event and is the only government-run art contest! I am only the third woman to ever win, and this is only the third time ruddy ducks have been selected.An Incredible Win3 months ago in Personal More Like This

Of Wolves and TrollsFor an animal that's consistently idolized as powerful, majestic, and fierce, the wolf has virtually the pussiest fanbase of any animal I've seen. I still come home from work to see angry wolf comments on my page, on deviations, and in notes from time to time, but I will say that if you're going to insult me for not worshiping your "pwecious wolfie" on my page or anywhere, you could at least have the courtesy and the genital fortification to not block me because you're too much of a little bitch to withstand a reply because you thought you could dish it but not take it (not that your insults are very good or clever to begin with). Then again, it's not surprising since you've already demonstrated that you're too sensitive to deal with that not everyone worships the animal you like. How very "wolf" of you. I've had people drop by and call me names or simply tell me I sucked despite my never having spoken to them before, but I suppose that's to be expected from people who've consisOf Wolves and Trolls3 years ago in Personal More Like This

5 Ruts You'd Better Not Fall Into As A Writer1. Seeking validation on the outside and getting shocked when you get critique. Validation comes from within, folks. Hard life lesson, but there you are. First of all, every artist of any kind has to learn to tell themselves they've done good work even in the face of their detractors. (One just hopes they balance it out with taking valid critique into consideration so they improve.) If you can't, you're not going to accomplish much. Second, I'm not saying that encouragement and fans and book deals aren't very nice things, but to the creative process they can be massive distractions. I read recently that a core of stillness is necessary to the creative process, and the more distracted I get, the more I understand it. I have seen entirely too many writers (and by this I mean full-grown adults who should be emotionally mature and everything) seek validation in a desperate and pathetic way, and get outraged when — gasp — someone tells them their writing could improve.

I've gotten so many wonderful, beautiful, comments! I read them all, even if I do not respond to each one. I am so moved that so many people found my little story so interesting! Really, it makes me all glowy to know that I was able to hit the artistic nail on the head. Nothing is more satisfying to an artist than knowing that their work "got to people".
Many of you understood exactly what I was aiming for, and that makes me happiest of all!
Knowing that I was able to communicate my artistic vision (with a fan comic!) feels so triumphant. As I posted each page, I would read the comments and keep them in mind when painting the next page... I would put extra effort into emphasizing certain points and ideas of mine to help better communicate them. Really, all of your comments truly helped me to hone my idea and inspire me to keep up with the work. So th
On Finding your Totem AnimalOn finding your TotemOn Finding your Totem Animal3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before reading, it is important to first realize what a totem animal actually is. According to numerous cultures throughout history, humans have had a deep connection to the earth and the world's natural energies, which many people believe can be channeled with the help of an animal guide. According to others still, a totem is the animal manifestation of a person's very soul, or even the form a person took in a past life, prior to being human.
The way I see it, a totem animal is whatever you make of it. I personally believe that it's a combination of all the above, though is, most prominently, an animal which is a reflection of yourself.
From a social standpoint, a totem animal says a lot about how a person lives out their life, and indeed, many behaviors which are natural to their totem animal are also displayed in the individual. As a Leopard totem, I'm pretty well-known for being an adrenaline junkie, and for biting off more than I can chew, especially if I'm c

because well, I am nocturnal, my mom says even as a toddler I slept better in the day and kept her up all night, and come the summer after 6th grade when she allowed me to make my own bed time, I uhhh was up watching Tales from the Crypt, X Files and infomercials till like dawn XD (Oh how my nights got better when we got cable, lol)
I have been struggling to maintain a semi-"normal" sleep cycle, namely because it distresses my mom when I stay up past dawn and sleep half the day.
