WOW. I am completely blown away by the wonderful gifts and amazing artwork you sent for my birthday! I wasn't expecting it at all, and when I opened the envelope and saw all the beautiful art, I was humbled and moved beyond words. In moments like this, I ask myself what I ever did to deserve such kindness from so many. Please know that I did not take one single gift for granted… I am so grateful for each of you and your kindness to me!!
Much ranger lovbe!
When Tomboys win the love interestI have been annoyed for awhile now. A majority of the films, tv shows, etc seem to have it where the Tomboy is usually overlooked by the guy she loves by a new girl that appears and is a complete girly girl or had to change into a girly girl herself. So I was wondering, does anyone know of an Anime, Film, TV Show or anything else where the Tomboy actually gets the guy she loves without having to change?When Tomboys win the love interest4 months ago in Personal More Like This

Little mirror trickSomeone recently told me how, when drawing a picture, putting it aside for a little while and then coming back later on it allowed him to see better the mistakes in it.Little mirror trick2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think it's very true !
When you draw for long on a picture, you start to somehow become used to it. Errors no longer shock you because you have become familiar with them. And the more it goes, the more comfortable things become and the more difficult it is to be critical of your own work.
So here is a quick little tips for artists, very handy
If you worked a couple hours on a drawing, try to either put it in front of a mirror if it's on paper, or to flip it if it's on photoshop ( Image / rotate canvas / flip canvas horizontal ).
It's magic ! suddenly you no longer see your drawing, but a different one. a drawing that isn't yet yours. And so your eyes can immediately become critical again, picking up errors you simply didn't see before.
It can be a little painful sometimes but it helps
I GOT MY FIRST JOB!!!Today was a marvelous reminder of God’s perfect and amazing timing. For the last year and a half, I have not had a job because of schooling. My elderly grandmother and her sister have been supporting me month to month and I constantly believed the lie that I was selfish and ungrateful. I constantly guilt-tripped myself and told myself I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t do anything right.. I was consumed by fear of making mistakes.I GOT MY FIRST JOB!!!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have never worked a job in my life. Yea I do informal jobs like cleaning a persons house or babysitting, but never anything in public. I am 20 years old and I have never worked! Lol!
So I began to cry out to The Lord about it last year around summer vacation. My family was harassing me and telling me I was selfish. But I heard God through the midst tell me, “don’t worry about it Alex. Don’t even search for work. I have it under control.” “But God- what about when I am done with ministry school?!! I can’t even

What The Crap Is Even Furry?I think sometimes it gets confusing when we're discussing "furry" because the word covers several different definitions and literally nobody wants to be left out of including their Doom cyberdemon fancharacter and who are you to judge, anyhow?What The Crap Is Even Furry?3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Being an english major with an interest in linguistics, I find this is simultaneously a boon--as the lack of solid definitions for any of these prevents people from being shoved out the door for failing to meet that definition . . . but at the same time, it causes an enormous amount of confusion when we're talking past each other saying two (or fourteen) entirely different things with the same word.
Furry as it is used commonly means:
1 - The furry fandom in general. What this necessarily encompasses is hard to pin down; to some people you have to actually accept yourself as part of the fandom, but it's also possible to be a big fat geek about it and clearly be in denial of whether or not you are

Tomboy Stories Pt 2: Its the Lovers' TurnOk now let’s wash out this terrible movie with something more uplifting for the group.Tomboy Stories Pt 2: Its the Lovers' Turn2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Awhile ago members will recall that I did a journal where I asked for the tomboys of this group to summit stories as why they are tomboys or why they enjoy being tomboys. So this journal I want to hear from the other half of the group, the Lovers of Tomboys.
Yes I want to hear from these members what it is about the awesomeness of tomboys that you love about them most.
I think I will start.
When it comes to tomboys I cannot help but love their passion. Anytime a tomboy is one of the characters in the series I always find them the most interesting. Where characters are always so bland when a tomboy is introduced they always bring more energy and life to the series.
Case and point with Toph. I have to admit I barely had an interest in the series by the end of the first seasoned, as let’s face it we have an overly motherly figure, a guy that only cracks jokes, and a guy without a spine who i

Something else I feel that I need to mention in order to contextualize my journal better is that, I did not intend for the list to contain every exhaustive permutation of subcategories for anything I mentioned. Point 4 by itself (common furry style) contains all sorts of variations on anatomy etc--the thing is, with each definition, what it means is that when someone says "furry" they don't MEAN to drill down to an exact picture in their head (This is not the Furry Code after all).
But, nonetheless they usually mean something when they use the word, especially when they use it to exclude other things. Let me give a few examples. (These are all paraphrases of things I've read on the internet at one point or another)

My name is Alexis Black, of Electra Designs Corsetry. I have been making corsets for over 20 years. You may already be familiar with my work.
A very talented corset maker and designer, Ms. Cristiane Tano, suggested that I share my corset-making kickstarter project here.
I wish to create a comprehensive, step by step, multi-media collection of corset-making instructional materials to teach people how to make high quality corsets at their own pace, and from the comfort of their own home.
Here is my kickstarter project page:
"Making Corsets is a Cinch with Electra Designs!"
Please visit my project page to learn more and to pledge your support. We must raise $20,000 by March 2nd for this project to be made. If successful, I will create corset making dvds, unique multi-sized corset patterns, online tutorials, printed materials, and corset making kits.

To be fair ppl hyped it up like crazy and of course the year I go is the year the photo nazis go full force on the "NO PRO PHOTOGRAPHER" rule.

When I first sold LMS to Paramount, a lot of people asked me: "How much money did you get?" "You're probably rich now, right?"
I mean, the solid gold mansion I bought was just a little gift to myself...but...
Ever since I was little, I've known I wanted to draw. From the day my parents put a pencil in my hand, this was my future. I just knew it, I had that gut feeling. So I stuck to it, and thankfully it took me to heights I'd have never imagined possible. Now with my new book Redemption heading off to studios soon for a hopeful movie package, I can't wait to see where this new road takes me.
That said, there's something else that tops all of this.
The other night I went out to visit my girlfriend's cousin and her family. Incredibly kind people with very sweet kids. Other than the two parents, there were 3 kids, but the one who caught my interest was the eight-year old boy, Diego.

Don't allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart.
Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to be affected by things. Whether it's a song,
a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all -

To my Deviant art watchers, friends, and vistors:Please take a moment to read this. I got a phone call from the giving first Colorado charity organization, I told them my plans on selling my support pins to raise money for them and the woman I was talking to loved it, she sent me a procedure list to do for when I collect money donations and how to send it to them. This is really happening and I hope I can get more orders. My goal is to make 500$ but I would like to make more then that, but that is first small goal. Thank you Chris Duryea for being the first person to donate to this cause. I don't want to push this on anyone but I want everyone to hear my goal so maybe they can help out. please share my photo with my information, (Deviant art profile) I will only take paypal payments because I will transfer the money strait to the charity, It would be easier and more reassuring to do it all electronically. The pins are 6$ each and 2$ for shipping. Thank you very much for your time and care.To my Deviant art watchers, friends, and vistors:2 years ago in Personal More Like This
