1. Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?
Hello! My name is Šárka, pronnounced Sharkah. I’m a 20 years old student of biology at Charles university in Prague. I come from the south of Czech Republic (the country with beer) , from beautiful South Moravia (the region of wine). I have a tarantula called Ungoliant and I love everything related to J.R.R.Tolkien.
2. When did you read Tolkien's books for the first time, and what impression did they leave in you?
When I was 10, I found an interesting book in a

YAY HOBBIT!Just returned from the midnight viewing of The Hobbit. And no, I did not dress up. All I had was The One Ring I got from an old Lord of the Rings bookmark and put it on a chain. I believe that small token at least satisfied the god of Tolkien nerdyness.YAY HOBBIT!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not going to say much about the movie other than my overall opinion, for I don't want to spoil anything for anyone. I had only a few severe dislikes about the movie, but for the most part I greatly enjoyed it. And I really very much want the soundtrack. :iconheeplz:
And now I am putting myself to bed.

Werewolves and RougarousHello Friends,Werewolves and Rougarous3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it begins...October is finally here!!! It's that wonderful time of the year when I dedicate this entire month to Darker Themed features in celebration of my favorite holiday.. Halloween!!! This year I'm going to try something a little different...
With each feature I do, I would like to incorporate something from our Cajun Folklore. These stories have been passed down from generation to generation. Tales of vampires, witches, zombies, ghosts and even werewolves..
Today I want to take you on a journey into the alligator infested swamplands of Louisiana. There is talk of a creature that dwells within the deep cypress filled shadows of the dark murky bayou. It is called the Rougarou...What?! You've never heard of it before?! Well my friends, I would be delighted to enlighten you!
The Rougarou (pronounced roo-ga-roo) is closely related to the werewolf, but with a few distinct differences. It is described as a creature with a human bod

You'll never look at this old nursery rhyme the same again
Warning! Mature Content! Reader discretion is advised
Taking something old and restyling or rewriting it in a new way is always worthy of a look-in. cristinewakesuphappy has taken a well known nursery rhyme and given it a poignant and sinister make-over, transecting it with a second poem I think we will all recognise, and creating a twisted taxidermy of nursery rhymes.

1. Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?
Hi everybody! What to say... I am homebody that draws things for a hobby, and doesn't have nearly enough time to do so as much as she'd like. I am a student (though not for long) and like to let my mind wander with Tolkien (and others) when number crunching gets to be too much. I'm Catalan, female and study chemistry and engineering.
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. Or maybe youre a college student whos wondering why the colours in your paintings arent coming out right. Maybe youre an older fellow or lady whos dabbling in art and youre having trouble with drawing hands.

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

Few words about art-thieves.Hi!Few words about art-thieves.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My dear watchers, I really appreciate your support when it comes to fight against art-thieves.
But I bet there are also many people whose thoughs can be interpretted like "why is she so hysterical about it?". Some people say, that the fact, that some photo is worth stealing, is a kind of compliment.
Ok, so let me present my point.
At first: why am I so unhappy about reposting of photos?
Because, pals, if somebody just reposts a photo without any change, it just gives totally open space to other people who would find the photos on his/her blog, taking it and posting it themselves. And because the first person did not credit the original author, they also do not credit the creator. The more people do that, the more times the photo is reposted. Always without credit. Sooner or later, it becomes a kind of "public" property and original author has almost no chance to effect this situation.
Do you know this photo? Honestly, EVERYBODY knows it. But do you know original author? Do you
Being a Christian Manga-ka?Lets face it folks...the topic of Christianity is so unheard of in manga. There are very few "mangas" that solely base there theme towards Christianity. If so, many people believe that it is SO not a manga...just a comic book advertising the Christsian faith just to get you to follow thier religion. I know they're trying to do a good deed and trying to spread God's Word to those who love manga. The cold hard truth though: they're not very good.>__Being a Christian Manga-ka?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

BirdsSo yesterday, while going out to water the plants in the front flower bed, I noticed three little baby birds that had fallen from their nest. At first I was heart broken, thinking these birds to be dead. Then, upon taking a closer look I noticed that they were still very much alive. My mom marked them as dead and told me to water the flower bed as usual. I couldn't. It broke my heart imagining those baby birds drowning under my hose. My first thought was to call my friend who, I knew, rescued animals all the time. With her help, and a quick google search, I learned how best to help these birds.Birds3 years ago in Personal More Like This
While placing them safely into their nest I realized something. This is how God sees us. We're tiny, and helpless, and fragile, and lost. He could just mark us for dead and send a flood to kill us (he's done it before), but he can't bring himself to do it. He loves us too much to just leave us. So, instead he sends a gentle hand to bring us and put us back into our nest; Heaven.
I think God put
