February 15th 2013 was a milestone for my time on deviantart! Its my 10 year anniversary! Wow, that is quite something! I can't believe its been that long since I first joined the site! The years have just rolled by! There have been so many people come and go over my artist progression, people who have inspired me, people who've become long time friends, people who have since departed the site and are dearly missed, and people who could do with a slap... of LOVE!
As part of my celebration for all of my 10 years of artistic endevours, as promised I am holding a contest! Yeah, I can see my once quiet page lighting up with activity to try and c
Anatomy BooksCan anyone recommend any really good anatomy books, I've heard of them, in folklore and stuff, but whenever I'm in the enchanted forest of Bukstorre, the creatures always evade me. I thought I spied one swinging from a lofty branch, and swiped it with my net. But on closer inspection, it was a terrifying medical anatomy book, with pictures of organs and things, which is often the case, and at that the creature chuckled cruelly and clambered back to the tree boughs it called home.Anatomy Books4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I heard titters from behind the bushes, cruel whisperings designed to confuse. As my mind tried to fathom the distant sounds, I deduced rumors of the creature I seek. "But where?" I panted "at what price?". The air was still and I was abandoned. I clutched my bag of coins tightly to my chest, and swore a promise to it. That it would not go wasted on unnecessary quests. Determined to consult the oracle for direction, I transcended to the Web of Wonder, and sought an audience with the oracle of art, who knows wh

Design Contest! CLOSEDHello, everyone! >w< I have another contest for you! ^o^/Design Contest! CLOSED3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The contest is design-based, and the theme is Nature's Twins
What is 'Nature's Twins'?
It is a small series that I draw. It consists of a human and animal counterpart bearing similarity in designs/physical traits.
Here are some examples:
(These are merely examples, as mentioned below, you will be expected to design your own human/animal counterparts ^^ )
The goal is to design either a human or animal (or both, if you would like) as part of the Nature's Twins series.
For example, you can draw a person with a unique design and describe what kind of animal you had in mind in the artist's description, or vice versa. If you would like to do both the person and animal, that is more than welcomed!
Please take note that these designs are expected to be fullbody!
The deadline will be set at January 31st!

SOPA Awareness ProjectAs you may know, the US congress is planning to pass an anti-piracy legislation (SOPA) in one week, and this bill will allow the government to not only block access to websites for US residents, but also to take down any website with one court order. This means many sites we are using now (including dA) will be in danger of closing and this will be affecting everyone outside of the US.SOPA Awareness Project4 years ago in Personal More Like This

I am posting this journal to help spread the word about :iconkaytseki:'s project of awareness, and if we all get involved we could be able to bring awareness to this subject and eventually help to stop this bill from passing.
All we have to do is spread the word with... drawings!

❀You are allowed to enter as many entries as you'd like, though you can't win more than one place (ex, if your pictures got judged and one won 1st and another won 3rd, you'd only win the prize for first and I would give 3rd to the next runner up sorta thing)

❀ Larger images would be cooler than smaller ones if you wanted it to show up in the PV! (like 100x100px would probably too small for that, but if you don't want your image in the PV, then that size is no problem!)

The winter ball was filled with life but all must come to end. All of the guests went silent when the bell rang once and the flow of the orchestra died. The two cursed guards stood high up a podium. With great joy, the Cursed Right Guard announced to the ball goers that they had found their new King and Queen. Once the announcement was made, the two guards descended from the stairs into the crowd. As the two men walked into the crowd, the student body began to part, whispering loudly trying to guess at the chosen king and queen. All came to a halt as both guards stood in front of one particular couple: Enro Shunryu and Kat Lunat. Wordlessly the cursed guards went on their knees. The Left Guard held the hand of the newly chosen King and The Right Guard took the hand of the queen. The light began to dim as both guards spoke their ancient vow to the newly appointed couple. The rite finished with a kiss to the hand, and suddenly the room begin to swirl as everything falls into co
