My deviantART StoryConsidering that I have little time here, let's begin this little story.My deviantART Story7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Well, it's no secret that I joined DeviantART to show many of my papercraft work and share experiences and models with other papercrafters.
Before joining deviantART, and before doing papercraft, I did some drawing, and a little clay sculpture, but never managed to improve a lot in these two arts. It was until I found papercraft models, I began to explore this art and I was completely in love.
The first models I assembly were a lot of work for me, was it a mental challenge to complete, It took me about 6 days to finish my first model. Still I didn't give up.
I began to see how I could improve the finish of the figures and fulfill the dream that I always had: Having a large collection of amazing collectible figures!

I'm really glad the DA has finally find time to open up a debate about it, considering we're the biggest art community online it's a very efficient way to get the word across! I was told that Sopa was brought up in october 2011 and obviously gradually went into a downward spiral from there...I actually recalled something that was kind of strange, back in 2009 or 2010, I remember watching a youtube video talking about 2012 disaster. The people in it stated that they found prove that lead them to believe that 2012 would not be a natural disaster apocalypse but would be an online crises that would end the "-internet-world" as we know it. The video stated that apparently major internet providers are planning to "sell" internet like cable

Project Educate: Introduction to PapercuttingHello and welcome to the Papercutting 101.Project Educate: Introduction to Papercutting2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Please come with me and let me show you why paper is still one of the most versatile medium to work with even in this digital age.
1.What is it?
Papercutting is the art of cutting design out from paper. It is considered one of the oldest forms of art but it has developed independently all across the globe. People from all over the world have independently discovered how versatile and rewarding it is to work with paper and they have developed their own distinct styles.
The oldest surviving paper cut out is a symmetrical circle from the 6th Century found in China. The category “papercutting and scherenschnitte” was opened on dA in 2010. It is at once one of the oldest and newest forms of art around the block!
2.What kinds of papercutting are out there?
Around the globe there are a number of traditional type

Anyone want to draw fanart of me and my Pokemon?At some point I'm probably going to draw some art of me and my Pokemon, but I'd like to see what others come up with.

Marketing Your dA PrintsOh marketing... it's every serious artist's permanent headache. What to sell, how to sell it, who to sell it to, how much to sell it for. While we can't give you the one perfect formula for that, here are quite a few tips on how to market your prints on deviantART and beyond.Marketing Your dA Prints4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Put your best art forward
You may think you want to offer everything you can for sale and that is understandable. However, think again. It's likely that not all works you offer for sale are ones that an art buyer might actually want to buy. Just like a potential buyer has to make a choice of what to buy, a seller is better off specifically selecting what to offer for sale and what not. While the saying "Quality over Quantity" is not a sure way to a sale, it's definitely a good strategy to get there.
It's better to offer only your fewer very best works for sale rather than all of your works.
Think like a customer

Project Sketch 'Em All UPDATEProject Sketch 'Em All3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok we're back, sorta. School is a terrible environment for art. And I have a lot of people who can vouch for that XD Anyway, the point is, I won't be working on it at 10 a day. Not for now, anyway. What is going to happen instead, is, I'll be drawing the remaining Pokemon first, then :IconAldenlite: will vector them. After that I'll color them all at one go, and you guys will see the complete collection. About time, I know. It's coming to the end of a school term, after which I have a week to rush up my homework, and of course, the project. Hopefully I can get it up by then.
Anyway due to the new sequence of actions, we'll actually need 3 progress bars to handle this.
Sketched: 644/725 (Reuniclus)
Vectored: 600/725 (Seismitoad)
[Star!][No Star] - 83%
Colored (And Complete): 560/725 (Serperior)

What Spyro's Kingdom WasWe finally have visual of what the first game concept of what Spyro's Kingdom looked like.What Spyro's Kingdom Was3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently, this game was originally going to be a MMORPG, in the Legend of Spyro-themed universe. The Portal of Power is mentioned, and we were going to have to use toys to play as our dragon characters in the game world. And just like Spyro's Universe, we customize our lairs. This game idea was proposed to Activision, but it was rejected.

A final farewellAs mentioned from an earlier journal http://fav.me/d6yoqkaA final farewell1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am resigning from fetish art. It's been an awesome time these past 4 or 5 years. I've met a lot of people online, and had my share of good and bad times like everyone else, although it appears more people gave me good vibes here. I do have one last thing I would like to do...and I really had to think about this...
I'm going to give away 3 more of my girls to new owners, since they're well liked amongst the majority of my 1777 watchers. But another reason is because I don't want anything to bring me back. My OCs were the main reason why I came back last March...they're just so damn cute and lovable, I can't stand not drawing them, LOL. But without them being here, it'll prevent the temptation of me breaking my promise to myself.
Of course, I will never stop loving my kinks. I may actually visit on another account once in a while anonymously, but as for drawing this art, I'm
