The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject

Mohatu's Reign-Uru's ReignThere is only 1 page left in the Mohatu's Reign segment of my story, which will probably be posted tomorrow. I can't tell you how much I loved doing this comic, and how excited I am that so many people seem to enjoy it. I have loved the experience, it has done a lot for me.Mohatu's Reign-Uru's Reign3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, after Mohatu's Reign, I will be going into Uru's Reign.
Some things to expect from Uru's Reign:
- Potentially different look; I will be tackling pages differently from now on, drawing directly in the panels rather then on sepperate documents. I find that this takes less time.
- Color changes. I have slightly darkened all of the adults colors to coincide with age.
- Aging; I will be making some characters look older, or changing the physical structure of characters. Example; Mohatu will be older, Ahadi and Uru will have more adult features.
- Though it's called "Uru's Reign" it will be mostly about Taka and Mufasa, sort of like how "Mohatu's Reign" was mostly about Uru and Ahadi.
- It will be more about Taka's d
How I watercolor with little artistic knowledgeHow I watercolor with little artistic knowledge11 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:

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 email@example.com 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

Characters I Love: SupergirlCharacters I Love: Supergirl8 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.

Contest 23 - Historical DisneyContest 23 - Historical Disney2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

(If an artist wants one of these characters, please draw a pic of him/her and send it to me. After a specified time, I'll choose the lucky winner! Otherwise, these characters can also be bought with . Prices vary.)
None right now. Check back soon!
(A "background check" by me will determine if you will give these characters a good home. I will not give/sell my characters to "collectors" or artists who have tons of characters and never/rarely draw them and/or give them stories.)

One of the most common questions I get is: "When does this [insert story title here] happen?"
In general, how should one start reading the stories in order?
I don't have a clear answer for this. Watchers is set to start 3 years after the squad was formed. Thus, I will arrange the stories I've written in 3 categories: the past, the present and the future.
1. The Past - The time the squad get to know each other.

art theft spread aroundhttp://vk.com/art.ideasart theft spread around2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I guess some of you might have already seen this in loish 's journal, but I think we should spread this around.
Basically, this community is using a BUNCH of artists' works (my has already been taken down, since I've asked and linked to it), but from those I've recognized the community still uses loish, andrahilde , Apofiss, andaglas and a whole lot of other DA artists' drawings for their purposes, without A SINGLE CREDIT.
They even make (made) magnets for selling using the works.
More of that, as I've been trying to contact the admins of this group, and I've been told that "Oh, don't worry, nobody was making millions using your work" and "Don't worry, there were only a few magnet sells and the community doesn't do it anymore blah blah". As I tried to make them understand they have NO RIGHTS for using other deviants' works whatever the hell they want without giving the original artist credit I got told that " I do never erase the artist
