Knite Translators Please ReadWhen I first uploaded Knite, I said anyone can translate it if they want, but I will not be making the translated pages into a flash comic because it takes too much to time... Well, I just found out a way to replace the pages in the flash file with translated pages with just one click I wish I knew it sooner... XDKnite Translators Please Read5 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are 3 requirements for this to work:
1. The translated pages must be the same size 750x600 pixel (so you can't use the larger 900x720 blank pages that I've been posting on dA)
2. The pages must have the same file name.
3. The pages must also be in the same jpeg format.
Here's the download links to all the smaller blank pages and the character fonts (the fonts only work for Roman letters; feel free to use your fonts of choice for languages that don't use Roman Letters. )
I will upload the Omake later and Ch 2 and Ch3, but :iconBlomsterhumlan: has made a script fo

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

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.

Zelda artbook - Hyrule HistoriaCould it really be true?Zelda artbook - Hyrule Historia4 years ago in Personal More Like This
For the 25th anniversary of "The Legend of Zelda" Nintendo finally releases a 274 pages thick encyclopaedia, filled with information all around Hyrule and never-before-seen concept art of the games, with the title "Hyrule Historia".
It also contains a short story about Skyward Sword, some pages about Akira Himekawa's manga work and there are rumours that it even has a complete timeline in it!
In Japan it will be released on 21 December this year, 3,255 Yen (which is about 41$/32€), but a release for other countries isn't confirmed yet. Let's hope that there will be at least an English version of it!
klick on the source to see some sample pages: - Nintendo Japan -
So it looks like it will definitely have a timeline in it, which will be, along with the history of Hyrule, described on 70 pages. 67 pages are devoted alone to Skyward Sword, 32 pages of the Sky

Behind the pretty faceI had such a pretty face.Behind the pretty face1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Or at least, that was what they told me when I posted my picture.
I have to admit that I rarely post my face online. Not so much for privacy's sake (I don't have the illusion of privacy, with the NSA around) but more because I've never liked taking pictures pictures. Back in the time, I was probably one of the few young girls that wasn't fond on making selfies, and therefore often had ID's showing either my back, my drawing equipment, or just a drawn image of me. The reason I posted a picture, was because it was for a good cause. An issue that I wanted to raise awareness for myself. The many people that had already posted their real pictures, encouraged me as well. That internet isn't all about faking who you are, but about the 'real' you as well. No matter who you are. Boy or girl, pretty or ugly.

The Tales of Beatrix PotterThe Tales of Beatrix Potter3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Cold winter evenings or blustery Autumn days had the soundtrack of my Mother's voice reading Beatrix Potter books out loud when I was younger. In fact, the wonderful children's books were the epitome of my childhood. The illustrations were just perfect and the stories, whilst simple, were mysterious and adventurous in their own way. Beatrix Potter was born in 1866, South Kensington, London. She was said to live a lonely life, being educated at home by a governess and so perhaps that's why she delved into a fantasy world of rabbits, geese and other traditional animals.
Beatrix's illustrations come from her copious studies of her own pets, and the animals that roamed the gardens of the places in which she holidayed as a child. The fascinating fact was that Beatrix's illustrations became greetings cards before her books were created. I see her drawings on cards in shops now and I always thought that it had developed the other way around. Her first boo
