You looked around, nothing was close to what it looked like at your house.. All there was were hummingbirds and eggs.. Everywhere. A voice in your head told you not to touch anything, but you couldn't resist the colored chocolate eggs and feathers. You were always the creative one at your school and in your family. You started to craft things with the feathers and placed an egg at the top. You were suck in this jungle cove. There was no possible way to climb it, because of your sprained ankle. You were running laps as you got run into by someone, you had forgotten about that pain, but when you started to walk you could feel it. So you sat on the grassy ground and looked around, you smiled. You were a loner most of the time, because you didn't like the things girls at you school did. You had gotten used to it and liked being alone. You're eyes started to soften as you saw a lick of golden sand cross your face. You drifted in
My Best Motivational TipWhen I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.My Best Motivational Tip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.
So here's what I think of.
"Michael Bay wants me to fail."
Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.
Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.

What is your Drawing Skill Level?All of the images featured in this article come from archives of my own work so not to impose unwanted criticism. The intention of this article is not to categorize artists, but to categorize similarities of different skill levels of representational drawing. Please also note that skill level in representational drawing does not equate to the worth of an artist's creative ability. But skill in representational drawing is very important to have in a lot of art disciplines. It is a skill that takes a lifetime to learn. Skill does not come from talent. Instead, talent affects the perseverance, discipline, and desire of the individual to develop skill.What is your Drawing Skill Level?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is Representational Drawing? Representational drawing is a fancy way of saying trying to re-create something you see in real life on paper (or whatever you are drawing on). When we turn about 10 or 11 years old, or brains begin to develop a different perception of visual space than what we could understand before in the earlier y

BJD Doll FAQBJD Doll FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please read this if you are interested to learn more about the dolls I photograph. I dont have time to keep answering the same questions over and over again >_< I will be updating this journal entry as time goes on. Feel free to add a question in the comments section and I will try to answer it.
❤ BASICS ❤
What are these dolls?
They are BJD - ball jointed dolls. If you search Google with those keywords you will get plenty of results with companies and other info about them. This is the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball-jointed_doll. Also this LJ answers some questions too http://bjd-wtf.livejournal.com/ . If you want to learn more, I would suggest Den of Angels forum (http://www.denofangels.com/forums/).
Do you make them?
No I don't make the actual doll, I don't sculpt it. I am a customizer, I paint their faceups. I am basically a makeup artist for resin dolls. You can find the link to my commission shop
"I Can't Draw""....I'm afraid other kids are gonna make fun of my drawing because I'm not good at it.""I Can't Draw"3 years ago in Personal More Like This
....said a fourth grade student to me last week at an Elementary school during my character design lesson. The little boy's comment to me about how worried he was about not being able to accurately represent what he wanted to on paper made me stop and think about something our society sort of imposes on our artists.
Since when did skill in drawing = how good of an artist you are?
I'd like to know.
Of course, we all know drawing is a fundamental skill in which every "artist" is expected to understand the Elements and Principles of Art and Design with because these elements and principles translate to ALL forms of visual art.
LETS STEP BACK AND THINK.........
Think of Art Mediums like Musical Instruments.
Think of Drawing as the Piano.
It's the instrument that most people develop an understanding of Music Theory to begin with.
But what if you picked up a guitar first instead of a piano-- and y

1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they were a long way from being realistic. My contemplation came to an end when I realized I could spend less money and have a better one if I just made it myself. That is where

It's contest time! This contest is simple, and has many backers for awesome prizes! Just listen to the song that I've linked below, and create an art piece featuring one of your OC's. Digitally or traditionally! Write a one shot! 3-d model it. Use anything you want to interpreate your own meaning.
Song name: Love the House You're In
Youtube Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXiSoJnO1V4
I picked a song that I think was open to interpretation.
The point of the contest is to try to think about an illustration that would fit well with the song. Interprete the music with your character however you see fits. Feel free to get creative, or keep it simple if that's your style and go with the power of your muse.

Weekly Gift-art RaffleMore than drawing fanarts or originals I love drawing characters with interesting designs.Weekly Gift-art Raffle1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So I decided to make a thing. Here it is.
Users leave a comment to this post with references of their OC, and every week I choose one of the characters based on which design I liked the most, and draw how I see them (maybe interacting with my OC).
Completed art will be posted on week-ends. After that users can post one more OC (if they have several).
- only ONE character a week per person please
- I will NOT draw animals, furry or anthro
- please provide at least 3 arts of your OC (prefferably drawn by the owner, but other artists' works are acceptable too)
Fourth one is up!
Hope you like the idea and will consider taking part in it ^^

Promote yourself!Hi,Promote yourself!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
since we're a fairly large group, we often get notes asking us to promote things, and also comments to our front page advertising something.
Sending notes is great for contests that you want to have promoted in this group, and I'll try to put them into blogs whenever I have the time.
If you don't want to wait for that or want to promote something else, please don't write it on our front page, that's spam. Instead, you can post below this blog and other members can find your comments here.
I will make blogs with your advertisements in them, so that they will be seen by as many people as possible.
Everyone gets to be featured once, and for one thing only. If you don't make yourself clear, I'll just choose one thing.
If you want to make multiple comments, please reply to your first comment. That way, it will be seen by everyone who looks at your first comment, which is linked in the blog.
I won't feature you twice, because right now there's a high demand and I think
