A Discussion For the Budding ArtistI wanted to write something for all of the younger artists on dA (those who are not yet in college), who are thinking about pursuing art as a major or a career. I am in no way an expert, but I do have a lot of experience to share, and if you care to hear it, than feel free to read (: And I would love to hear people's thoughts and opinions on some of the ideas I present.A Discussion For the Budding Artist3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This past semester I have buckled down and have started to really think about art as a career and not just as a pastime anymore. I think this partially stems from the transition from high school to college. It's a strange thing being thrown into 'the adult world' and having to think about everything in a whole new light. For me, I had my mind made up that I wanted to be an artist since I could conceive the concept of having a job. I had never swayed in that decision until I was faced with the reality of the art world. It is a CRUEL, COMPETITIVE, CHALLENGING, TIME-CONSUMING in

FAQ time!Since I tend to get asked a lot of the same questions through our videos or at cons, I decided to answer a few of them here. Most of them are related to Grell, Kuroshitsuji, or the Grell Show in some way. So without further ado....here you go!FAQ time!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Where do you get your Grell contacts?
I get all of my contacts from a company caleld Exotic Lenses http://www.exoticlenses.com/. I have never had an issue with any of their products, and believe me, I have tried several other companies out there. But Exotic Lenses products have never irritated my eyes, and they're so comfortable that half the time I forget I'm even wearing contacts. The style I use to always use for Grell are "Louis" (those pale green ones), but I recently switched over to a new style called "Mad Hatter" (as seen in my Ophelia pic).
Where do you get your sharp Grell teeth?
The veneers set that I use is from a site called Dental Distortions http://www.dentaldistortions.com/, and the style is actually called "Grell". They are a bit
ColossalCon 2013Yesterday was the day CupofSquirrel went to Colossal Con, and we had an excellent time. Though I am worn out, I'm still feeling enthusiastic about our con experience.ColossalCon 20133 years ago in Personal More Like This
Guess and I wore our Thor and Loki cosplays for the second time at a con (the first was Motor City Comic Con, where we had severe costume malfunctions). This time was a bit better-- it was nice to have test runs before Youmacon this year, and before we begin filming projects with Thor and Loki. We have kinks we still need to work out to make our costumes better, but that will come in time.
We will not, however, be wearing these to another summer convention. Ever. Again.
I have this problem where I don't take care of myself-- I don't do it intentionally, I just don't realize that I'm physically feeling a certain way, or emotionally feeling a certain way. I'm far better at reading other people's needs than my own, so I didn't even notice I was overheating until we went back inside. We had been running around taking cosplay

Equine Art Inspiration (Images)I'd like to take a moment to talk about amazing Equine Art & Animations that Inspire the way I draw horses. I wanted to find some of these paintings where artists would draw really chubby horses with stick-like legs, but I couldn't find them this time, so here I will post all the rest of the things that have inspired me as well since I was a child.Equine Art Inspiration (Images)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First are these Russian / Soviet Union Animations that I used to watch on the T.V. when I was little. I absolutely loved the way in which these simple shaped horses were animated, prancing with elegant movements.
Then we have Sleeping Beauty, you have to love the chubby horses with extremely thin legs in this movie. xD
One of my favourite animations since ever "The Last Unicorn" of course not only the horses are beautifully made but every other creature in it as well. This has been one of my biggest inspirations for my unicorns.
There is random artwork here and there with very simple or very complex drawn horses but usually what call
