3000 Watcher GiveawaySo I'm about 50 watchers from 3000, and the last giveaway I had was at 1000 watchers. I think it's time to have another random drawing giveaway!3000 Watcher Giveaway2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The prize this time around will be a commission for a food of your choice in 1:12 scale as either a magnet, piece of jewelry, or just a miniature.
Anyone who is watching me at or before 3000 watchers is eligible to win. I will announce when I've reached 3000 and do the drawing the following day.
In other news, I've discovered I can't cut balsa wood to save my life.
I've also thrown out my back to the point where it hurts to move. \o/ There's some inherited thing from my dad's side of the family where the lower back will just go and it's like a giant, painful cramp all the way down the back of my left leg. Bending over is not an option...nor is moving, really. It'll be me and the heat pad for the next few days. Plus some Dragon Age 2 (Anders, why are you such a sexy group of pixels? >.

"Veggie55 brought me here": more of a Real Life Running Gag than anything. With the end of Season 2, the deviantART artist Veggie55 has taken to making short comic strips based of scenes from popular tv shows like Father Ted and Family Guy. In the comments section for each, he usually links to the video, which leads to his legion of fans watching it, liking it, and getting the top rated comments, most of them referencing the comic (something which non-bronies would not understand). Exempli gratia.
This is literally THE funniest thing I have ever seen, thanks for showing me, Excalibur <3

Krita Painting App on Steam!WHAT IS KRITAKrita Painting App on Steam!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Krita is the only digital painting tool I'm using. It is a free (as in freedom), open source software. It offers a sophisticated brush system, packs in almost everything that a digital painter needs and is very easy to use.

WHAT DO I LIKE ABOUT KRITA
Krita's page has detailed introduction of what it is capable of. I would like to cover a few things that I really like about Krita here as well:
Krita's brush system is fast and smooth. It is optimized for graphics tablets with pressure support.Ruler tool assistance when drawing long curves (something comparable to SAI).It doesn't draw jigsaws when zoomed out (my nightmare when using Adob

What the Judge's Were Saying A very clever choice of drawing a rat who wants to to be cook just like a human, and a former human who's now cooking as a frog! Haha. Very, very clever choice of characters with a humorous picture!
What the Judge's Were Saying: The idea that Merlin is giving the Fairy Godmother magic counseling over tea is hilarious. Not to mention, what Merlin says is quite clever because you never think about the midnight thing being an issue in the movie.
What the Judge's Were Saying: These two little guys are hideously unreprested in our group's gallery! We adored seeing Wart and Taran training with their magic swords together. Now that's adorable!

Apparently so. The Legend of Korra: Original Music From Book One is listed on Amazon, with the release date and option to preorder.

New exciting information!A recent update from Michael Dimartino Tumblr posting "More Korra excitment! Some more sneak peeks of book 2 characters. Desna, Eska, and Varrick."New exciting information!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First up, Desna (left) and Eska (right) , Korra’s cousins:
DESNA (Waterbender), ESKA (Waterbender)
Korra’s cousins are sixteen year-old twins who have a strange connection and seem to communicate without saying a word. They’re both Waterbenders, and when they work together they can accomplish amazing feats, such as shooting entire icebergs at opponents. Korra has always found them incredibly annoying because they look down on her for being a rube from the South, even though she’s the Avatar.
Next up, shipping magnate and facial hair enthusiast Varrick, presumably not to be confused with the Dragon Age character of the same name:
Billionaire shipping magnate from the Southern Water Tribe. He’s a little eccentric, but very charismatic. He sp

Characters I Love: SupergirlCharacters I Love: Supergirl7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Jenn from Dangerous Ladies @ DA
I had been thinking about doing something like this for a while. Outlining why I enjoy certain characters and who better to start out with than my favorite superheroine, Supergirl.
I feel slightly bad that I can't recall when I first learned of Supergirl's existence. After much thinking (and head pounding) my best guess is it was with the Superman: The Animated Series episode Little Girl Lost. Now before I was a Supergirl fan I was (still am but as I say, Kara is easier on the eyes lol) a Superman fan. I know people call him boring, a boy scout, but Superman is the archetype superhero. Personally, I like the idea of an absolute good guy hero so Supes always will be one of my favorite heroes. So as a much younger Mad Man (minus my pen though) I watched STAS and fed my growing love of the DCAU. Then we get to Little Girl Lost and I meet Supergirl.

How I watercolor with little artistic knowledgeHow I watercolor with little artistic knowledge10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Welcome to my journal! Main reason I'm doing this is to test out a cool CSS thing! Because I love to waste time like that. But then, since I have not made a WIP journal in a while, I thought, "why not? Especially since I realized I have never done a painting WIP series, only for my splatter ink ones. Now I see why - when you're working with watercolor, everything dries so fast!
Even so, here it is! I'm going to try to give some hints or tips, especially for beginners. But first thin you should know is that I don't work professionally. At all. I'm really messy and I'm always covered in ink afterwards. Furthermore, as seen above, I have to edit my paintings a bit before I post them, because I don't have a scanner. Generally, I take photographs during the day, when I can get the best lighting.
I hope you enjoy! Feel free to ask any more questions in the comments!
Before you watercolor, good things to have on hand:
Paintbrushes - many sizes; soft ones are the best, in my

Alright, I want to do a lil giving back after having so much support the past years I've been here, sooooooo...
I'm im offering free pony OC requests every week, starting next Friday! But there is a little catch. It's is not guaranteed that you will have your request done. See, it'll be random. You can send your OC to my email, along with your username so I could credit you as the OC's creator. It'll be a surprise thing. Maybe your pony could pop up from me. Who knows? But I think it'd be a fun thing to do.
So if you want to have the possibility of me drawing your OC, with having patience, then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and insert your references so I could draw it correctly, and your dA username to refer you.
I know it's awkward to ask, but I just have very few people to talk to and it gets pr
SeeU TutorialWell I know its a little late but most people on Votaku and Youtube know by now that I got Seeu for Christmas. Since I never really put anything special for seeu here ... Well I'll make this little post. This will be a little mini tutorial with tips.SeeU Tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seeu is by far my favorite vocaloid. You can kinda compare her to Sonika. No Seeu is not really muffled and very bad quality. The reason I compare the two is because they are both very versatile and great for people who experimenting and working with configurations. Seeu's Korean voicebank gives users a chance to mess around with phonemes that are not in a Japanese voicebank. The Korean bank only works with hangul input so you will be forced to work with her on a phonetic level ... But thats not bad because we want to work directly with her phonemes. Her Japanese voicebank is slightly higher in voice and has an over all more moe effect to her then

And the winners are...
In the Judge's Section:
Chosen by :iconmistytang::iconzimeta::iconshoomlah:
Give me your voice by Khioora
What the judges were saying: "Khioora's piece definitely jumped out at me when I was first browsing through the entries- it's a striking illustration, granted, but I was also taken with the integration of both 1830's fashion, and Romantic period portrayals of mermaids with more delineated legs. I'm not a huge fan of fashion in the 1830's, but I'll be the first to admit that it's a blast to draw; I think Khioora did a great job of capturing the so-called "Waist and Extravagance" of the period with both her characters' overall silhouette, and her general detailing of the costume. Great stuff!"~ shoomlah
