Smoothing, Sanding, Buffing Polymer ClaySmoothing, Sanding, and Buffing polymer clay is definately something that you don't hear a lot about in the younger polymer clay community, but it certainly does make your pieces look a lot better in the long run. If you smooth, sand, and buff your clay AND add a layer of varnish - watch out, your pieces will look as bright, beautiful and glossy as a piece of delicious candy.Smoothing, Sanding, Buffing Polymer Clay7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Have you ever noticed that translucent clay really isn't THAT translucent? Well, if you smooth, sand, and buff it - you'll be seeing differently! It really DOES get see-through!
Give these tips a try, and although I can't guarantee that you will get it right the first time, practice makes perfect, and sometimes new techniques take a little getting used to before you find a way that works the best for you.
Smoothing your clay is what you do to your clay before you bake it. Running your fingers along the surface and smoothing out bumps and impurities can work wonders on a piece and give it a ve

Pokemon Emerald SkiesI am here to inform you that the game has finally gone underway and production has commenced. Pokemon Emerald Skies is a remake of the official Pokemon games Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald; it is mainly a reboot of the series with an updated game design and new gameplay features and graphics. We are hoping that even if Nintendo decides to remake the series, the interesting graphics and updated screensize will make this remake one to remember and fans to play as well.Pokemon Emerald Skies3 years ago in Personal More Like This

AttentionHey guys,Attention3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just wanted to say that there is a deviant by the name of ScientologyHero that is leaving comments on my artwork saying that they are her artworks etc etc. Please don't believe her because I know some haters out there love to see that kind of thing but yeah it's not true.
The funny thing is she directly stole my artwork that you can see here: http://scientologyhero.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5fx2s9 and even left the same description! lol i know she's doing it for attention but I just wanted to point it out so no one thinks I directly take people's already finished artworks and post them as they are.
And just a short message to this classy lady, i know you know this already but you are incredibly sad to claim something is yours when it's not then steal artwork and post it as your own
5 Years of Random Doom2012 is my own 5 year anniversary here in deviantart which was awesome. Naturally, this also means my pokemon series, Random Doom, also turned 5 years old. Man, time sure flies. During these five years... Lots have happened and I suppose I'd love to say some things that have been in my mind a long time. So, I'll be rambling about RD, myself and other stuff related to it... I dunno how long.5 Years of Random Doom3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Like I mentioned in my 5 year anniversary picture... I never expected RD to get this popular. It truly started as a silly comic about pokemon I planned to train in my pearl game. I was so excited about diamond and pearl that I planned out my teams way before the games even came out. I loved drawing them and I started to develop them and give them personalities and names. I suppose I did this to make waiting easier. Hehe, it is quite funny that once I finally got the game, I didn't even use anyone from my RD cast until I beat the game and I was able to start proper EV training. Yep, that serious I wa

Imagination, Inspiration, and CurationAs deviants, we are serious about our craft, hobbyist or professional. We study hard to become better at what we do. There are many great tutorials here and elsewhere on these kinds of craft based skills and techniques. However, sometimes all that serious study and hard work gets in the way of our imagination. Therefore, it is important to remember to establish a wonder filled mindset, actively seek out inspiration, and curate a library of inspiring content to reference in the future. This article explores some ways to do these three things, and I encourage you to comment and share even more tips on this for other deviants!Imagination, Inspiration, and Curation2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

PE: Beadwork What is beadwork?PE: Beadwork2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Beadwork is - as the word suggests - working with beads. Beads are very versatile; they come in various colours, shapes and sizes, and together with a needle, some thread or wire, and maybe - but not neccessarily - a (small) loom, you can easily fashion yourself some jewellery, or present your mother with a beaded flower.
What can I create with beads?
That question has a fairly simple answer: Anything you want to! You can make
and other wonderful things.

Tips on being an effective roleplayerLink to Rp and RulesTips on being an effective roleplayer1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. Describe the most attractive traits of your rp partner's character. This tip is most effective when both of your characters are suffering from 'awkward silence syndrome.' Simply have your character gaze at the other, and then make him/her describe all that he/she's seeing. Posts like that are flattering, and it makes your rp partner ship them even more.
2. Don't rush the relationship. It's unrealistic to have your character fall for another in just one day unless it's just a crush. Give it time, let them share some experiences together, and then you'll have an even tighter relationship with your characters! Trust me, you don't want to rush. It'll make the whole thing seem a little too much like Romeo and Juliet. Those two barely know each other, and suddenly they're in l

PE: Poetry Forms- An A-Z An A-Z of Poetry Forms!PE: Poetry Forms- An A-Z2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
To kick start this week at projecteducate, we're starting off with a slightly lighter-hearted article listing just some of the poetic forms that exist out there. Lets be honest, there are hundreds and we can't list every single one. This is just a slice of the forms out there and if you are wishing to expand your understanding of different forms, do some research and don't take this as gospel!
Each form has a direct link to a site that describes the form in more detail, usually with examples too. I have also included some good examples from dA when I have found them.
Yes some of these link to wikipedia!

Adventure Time Fanfic
Setting: The Fire Kingdom 10 years before the events of Adventure Time.
The Fire Kingdom is abuzz with anticipation as it's the first day for fire elemental training school to begin. Unlike the other years this one was special as the daughter of the royal family themselves would be attending. The fire elemental training academy has had it's share noble's children pass through there doors in the past but this was the first time a member of the royal family has attended as they normally have private tutors however this time was different as the Flame Queen insisted that her daughter meet others her age.
The importance of fire elemental training is not to be underestimated as fire people if left untrained can very well threaten to destroy the entire kingdom if not all of Ooo. Every fire person needs some form of fire elemental training of which the fire elemental training academy was the best. The fire elemental training academy is mainly reserved

I don't think I have ever dealt with more theft than with 'Warriors' groups and RP'ers trying to peg my character Sterling as some damn Warrior character.
Seriously, I hate that because 99% of the time they just warp out signatures and blur out watermarks and slap some ridiculous name like "Magicpaw" on her and pretend she's some loser idiot Warrior.
This is the original image they ganked and warped the colours on --
I hate it. I really do...
I know this is just bitching but for fuck sake, how many damn times do I have to fucking put "DO NOT USE" on a damn image in the fucking middle for you kids to get it through your thick ass skulls that this image is NOT YOURS TO USE!
