RAT F.A.QSOME USEFUL FACTS ABOUT RATSRAT F.A.Q4 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, rats make wonderful pets. They are very playful, cuddly, curious, smart, licky, they have a lot of personality. Their behaviour is very similar to dogs' behavior and they are as clean as cats.
They unfortunately suffer from a very unfair bad reputation.
Rats don't carry many diseases, they actually carry way less than cats or dogs. They can be potty-trained, they can learn tricks, they are very affectionate towards their owner, you'd actually be amazed at how loving and funny they are. Once you've owned rats, you can never forget about how sweet and fascinating they are.
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about rats (including a paragraph about breeding although I'm firmly against people breeding their pets. Better giving informations than having people breeding their pets in bad conditions though).
IS A RAT SUITABLE FOR ME?
First of all : a rat is not a toy, it is an animal and therefore needs to be fed, t
My Art School RantI mentioned I had a rant about art schools and many of you said you wanted to hear it. Well, its long so I hope you meant it. This will make some of you angry, but I hope not. I love art schools and I love their instructors even more! Many art instructors are friends of mine. This rant is about the art school teaching SYSTEM. Money drives that, just like any other business, so there will be mistakes made because of greed. So, without further ado.....My Art School Rant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My Art School Rant
I have a love-hate relationship with art schools. I love what they stand for- the pursuit of and love for creating great art! I still get excited walking into an art school. Seeing all the rows and rows of wonderful Macs, the energy (or lack thereof- we ARE talking about art students, after all), the artwork on the walls, the postings of upcoming events and guest speakers, the dirty floors, the whole

ARTISTS PLZ READ (esp.mangaartists)I just need to get out there,ARTISTS PLZ READ (esp.mangaartists)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
it's driving me nuts how many artists
give up doing art because of people or their situation.
So I wanna tell you my story, growing up and becoming an artist.
The reason I'm writing this out is because I really wanna be able to inspire, even if I'm not the greatest of artists.
I know for a fact, manga artists have much more hardship trying to become famous than painters and sculptor's etc.
Because there's just some idiots out there that think all anime is Sailer Moon, and who LOVES to control your life more than other people. Parents, friends w/e
My parents were very against the idea of me doing manga in the future, being famous and stuff.
It's childish, you're gonna be poor, you're gonna ruin your studies. My teachers weren't any better.
My real-life friends were either against, unsupportive or ignorant about doing manga art.
And being in my country with little population, that I can understand.
At this point, a lot of manga artists out there would give u

Featuring the Father of Depravites, my one and only Ravity.
Was originally going to host a design contest but Ravity talked me into this instead because he's such an attention whore. For those who dont know about Ravity or what a depravite is, let me explain him first.
Ravity is a unique type of demon, created by the moral corruption of man. He feeds off of sin and his favorite past time is twisting the thoughts and moral ideas of whoever he comes across, corrupting the innocent. Being the first of kind, he's father to all Depravites.
Like Ravity, depravites survive on sin. They dont like being told they cant do as they please and become very vicious if angered. Most of them have a rattle on their tails like rattlesnakes, but their rattles dont make any audible noise. Instead they produce a psychic wave that induces fear and hallucinations. They can choose to secrete a poison or toxin when biting, most carry a par

The theme for this one is "ANGEL OF PEACE".
This could be interpreted any way you want. It could be an image related to archangel Uriel who is generally seen as the Angel of Peace. It could be the image of a nativity scene Angel(s) (="Peace on Earth"), it could be the image of an Angel seen in the act of peacemaking, or it could be an image of an Angel with doves or other symbols of Peace, ect, etc... It is all up to you. As long as the image is created with traditional media (watercolor, oils, pencil, etc )
I have placed in the featured folder one of my own interpretations of that theme: "Archangel Uriel" http://fanitsafantasy.deviantart.com/#/d2rspz7 May be you will be inspired
The winning pieces will be ones that are beautifully created but also ones that convey the message of Peace. So do not submit the image of just
A General Guide to FreelancingHello all! Recently I've been getting a lot of notes and e-mails asking for suggestions and advice on how to get started with a career in freelance art, so I decided to go ahead and write up a general guide for it. Please note that this guide is based on my own personal experience and is not necessarily the right or the best way to do it. I also cannot guarantee success.A General Guide to Freelancing8 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, let me say that freelance is not exactly the best choice for a career. It is very hard to make it as a freelance artist and a steady paycheck is never guaranteed. If you have no self dicipline, are prone to procrastination or cannot take direction well, it is not a good idea to try it.
My monthly income figure is decided by how much each commission costs and that I can get them all done within a month. If I do not finish them in time, I have to stretch out the money until I can take more. If I am dedicated with working on them, I us
