I'M SURE YOU ALL don't REMEMBER THE PIECE OF WRITING I DID BACK IN NOVEMBER, DEMISE OF THE SPIRIT'S GUIDING LADY. Well. Back in February, I decided on the spur of the moment to turn it into a comic series. I figured, 'oh it's pretty short, and I've already got everything written and all the characters designed, why not?' Then things happened and pages started to fly out and it was decided that I was going to get it published, and... well... IT WAS! The zero-budget comic ended up being done in just six months (for the first couple months I was just treating it as a side-project, but if I'd known it was getting published it would've been completed a

All Bases + RulesIf you wish to purchase ALL bases together, (about 1500+ points together) you can get them for 10$ via PayPal, yes I know this is cheaper than the points, but the reason why is because it's faster and doesn't make me wait for 2 weeks. c: Just note me and I will send you the PayPal and send you a temporary link for the download of the whole pack.All Bases + Rules2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Read all the rules and info before purchasing please. Refunds will not be given, if the files are corrupted I can exchange the files and you can re-download it for free.
In case of errors here is a list you can do that worked for other people:
- Make sure you have WinRAR or Winzip installed to your computer, it downloads the whole pack as a .zip file so you will need either of those programs to open it. They're free and easy to find on Google. Majorly of the people seem to forget this.
- Update your Flashplayer here: http://get.adobe.com/en/flashplayer/

The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)Howdy friends,The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There has been an exciting development!
A couple of months ago, the folks at Chaosium Inc. [ http://www.chaosium.com/ ], the publishers of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, confirmed their desire to publish The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers). When I received word I immediately began revising the now almost two-year-old text and illustrations to ensure that the print version is of the highest possible quality. I am currently about a third of the way through this process, and thought it would be good time to let you all know that the oft-requested dead tree edition of this story looks like it is actually becoming a reality.
I continue to be grateful for the encouragement of the folks around here, and I look forward to updating you all with any further news as it arrives.
In the meantime, I'm posting up the pages of The Statement of Randolph Carter (for beginning readers) I was working on when the word came through from Ch

Women as Sex ObjectsWarning: Imma 'bout to rant.Women as Sex Objects2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
First off I'd like to point out that I'm not a raving feminist. I acknowledge that women are not equal in western society (despite corporate efforts that seem to be more about statements and false enthusiasm on the subject rather than actually taking women seriously) and I don't think we will be equal for a long time, if ever. Just how it is. Unfortunate (from the perspective of a woman), but just how it is.
ANYWAY. Here's my rant. I'm really tired of a female character being undermined by her being half nude. Really, really tired of it. And I'm not talking about artistic nudity, I'm talking about ass-cheek flashing skirts, bikini tops and little else (I'm looking at you, Japan).
I love a strong female lead, but they're so rare. Writers find it so hard to create a complex female character; they're either so brave and outspoken that they become butch and unattractive by design, or they're a sex object. A hopeless damsel in distress or someone who can hold th
How tentaculas are madePeople keep asking about Love and Tentacles, but I'm sorry to say that comic is as good as dead. I might draw a picture once in a while because Frida can be fun to draw, but I don't even think about LaT most of the time, unlike my other comics which enter my head daily.How tentaculas are made2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But people are apparently dying to know if Tom and Frida ever had kids, and if it could even be done. So I'll give you and explanation on that.
Tentaculas have reproductive tentacles around their waist (the thin pink ones that gets thick when they get aroused). Males and females rub them against each other and release semen and eggs into water (in these modern times its usually a bathtub unless they're hippies). They are left to float around until the fertilized eggs hatch and the tiny young eats the un-fertilized eggs. Then they move on to swallowing each other, until only one is left. Sounds unpleasant, but that is why tentaculas in general are very healthy and handicaps are almost unheard of unless they get inj
Authentic CitizenshipOnce Again, The Room Fell Away. The prodigious artistic and cultural exchange that we have all committed ourselves to building, to participating in and to sharing with each other every day at deviantART often occurs in RL on the decks of HQ as well. One of the best aspects of being in my position here at deviantART is the privilege to curate salons with artists of every medium and success level imaginable, art appreciators, writers, and educators from all points of light within the deviantART community inviting them to make the trek to HQ for what always manifests as an inspiring, thoughtful, educative, and enlightening dialogue. But sometimes, sometimes, things rise to a whole other level.

About BJDs (the dolls) in general.
--- Do you make these dolls?
No. I buy them and customise them the way I want.
--- What is the name of these dolls?
They are called BJD (Ball Jointed Doll). This is kind of a refference name to reffer to this specific kind of doll.
--- Ok, BJD is a general name. So how do the nomenclature of specific BJD works?
No BJD company actually has a doll line called Ball Jointed Doll (although they do use this therm). Each company that makes BJDs call they're own dolls with di
Premium Content Platform and your Stock.What on earth is the Premium Content Platform??!!Premium Content Platform and your Stock.3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Please read the following official HQ article about Premium Content Platform, It will answer your initial questions!
What does this strange magic mean for stock and resource providers?!
Well that depends on you - the stock or resource provider. We all know that for some years now many of us have been offering "exclusive/donation/pay for" stock/resource packs that require artists to make a paypal donation/or send us DA points. The content is then emailed to them, or a link is sent to give them access to this paid for content.
We all know its the biggest pain in the ass going. Emails back and forth, trying to get paypal donation buttons to work, endless frustration with artists not being able to get hold of the content they have paid for because their email won't accept large files. Yep - we've all been there!

Does talent exist?I know many people have different opinions about this. And here's what i think of it and why. I'll just answer the journal question up front, I think talent does not exist. And here's why:Does talent exist?5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Let's start with he question, what is talent? It's this magical thing that makes some people learn faster and develop faster than others in different fields. Let's take art for example, there are 2 different artists, both start at the same time to learn a concept and one learns faster than the other. But few people have stopped to ask themselves why that is? Is it talent, or is it something else?
Let me tell you a story about a guy who started an experiment to see if talent exists. He posted an add where he stated he's looking for a wife that will agree to marry him and let him test their children in this experiment. And they made 3 girls. The guy taught them all how to lay chess from a very early age, and lo and behold all of them became grandmasters in chess. This story is real, the guy is
why art style doesn't matterare you obsessed with creating a unique art style for yourself?why art style doesn't matter1 month ago in Personal More Like This
do you become disappointed with your ever-changing style and wish it was stable?
art isn't about drawing in a very specific manner repeatedly for the rest of your life! stop making your main focus in art to make your own art style or stay true to your tried and true style!
art, to me, is so much bigger than that. instead of trying to become a one-trick pony, get yourself comfortable with art and let the rest happen on its own! who knows, by the end of it you may find yourself comfortable drawing in DOZENS of styles! try painting or realism, try drawing wildly and without care, try drawing something so exaggerated it's barely recognizable, try drawing with other senses in mind, try drawing a specific mood- etc!
art isn't ABOUT finding a style! before you become worried about your art being too inconsistent, worry about your anatomy, backgrounds, and color choices! study your surroundings, draw f

International Women's Day: Female Focused Vector What is International Women's Day?International Women's Day: Female Focused Vector3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The following has been quoted from the InternationalWomensDay.com:
"International Women's Day has been observed since in the early 1900's, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.
The new millennium has witnessed a significant change and attitudinal shift in both women's and society's thoughts about women's equality and emancipation. Many from a younger generation feel that 'all the battles have been won for women' while many feminists from the 1970's know only too well the longevity and ingrained complexity of patriarchy. With more women in the boardroom, greater equality in legislative rights, and an increased critical mass of women's visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life, one could think

Whenever I manage to beat my hate for scanning the same piece more than once.
