Sucker Punch:: Guardian AngelEveryone has an angel.Sucker Punch:: Guardian Angel2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A guardian who watches over us.
We can't know what form they'll take.
One day, old man.
Next day, little girl.
But don't let appearances fool you.
They can be as fierce as any dragon.
Yet they're not here to fight our battles.
but to whisper from our heart.
reminding that it's us...
lt's every one of us who holds
the power over the worlds we create..
We can deny our angels exist..
convince ourselves they can't be real.
But they show up anyway.
At strange places.
And at strange times.
They can speak through any character
we can imagine.
They'll shout through demons
if they have to...
challenging us to fight.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New YearHello fellow friends, watchers and everyone else who stumbles upon this...Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today is the 4th Advent, in not even 6 (for some people 7) days is Christmas Eve. Because I won't be at home from Christmas until the 29th or even 30th of December I decided to put up a nice Feature of Christmas Art. Today I had my Mum, her boyfriend and his father over for dinner. We had fried trout filets, boiled potatoes and cucumber sald and a nice apple-vanilla-cinnamon junket as Dessert. I wanted to do something for them - they always support me so much and the father of my mum's boyfriend invites us for dinner so often and he just won't let me pay when we go to a restaurant. So yeah - this is the only chance I have to invite all of them for dinner...and it was so nice even though a lot of work - I guess I will do it again I think somewhere around next year - maybe in April before Easter Sunday or something like that...maybe earlier..I don't know yet ^^ I'm

How to make money outside and inside DeviantArtThis is meant more for younger, newer deviants who have run into a spot of trouble making some extra cash,How to make money outside and inside DeviantArt4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I see many people posting how they make no money on their prints through DeviantArt.
To me, it just seems like all you need is a lesson in business.
First, before you do anything, realize what our "Target Audience" is.
Do you draw anime? Or do you take pictures of cute animals? Or are you into realism? Let's face it, you aren't going to find very many older people who enjoy fine art on the internet. Try and figure out what age group your work appeals to.
Second, use DeviantArt as your "Warehouse"
DeviantArt is great. You can showcase your products and then ship them to people without you doing anything. However it is an Art Community. In DeviantArt, you work is only shown to other artists, to get more money you have to use DeviantArt as your Warehouse. It will supply the customer, but you need to bring the customer to the site.
Deviantart is fairly appealing, but lets face it, man
About Hetalia OCs...Listen, maggots. (and I mean that in the most loving way posible).About Hetalia OCs...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
About Hetalia OCs...
You should do your research on them, or there's no doubt that you're going to get targeted by the people who hate shitty OCs. Don't make them a Mary-Sue or Gary-Stu. You also might offend someone who's from that particular country.
There's a flip side to the situation.
People who go around "critiquing" OCs...
You better be sure as hell that your 'critique' is actually helpful. Because critiques can hurt. And they do. (Well, some of them).
Completely slandering someone's inaccurate OC? That doesn't help. At all. Calling it a "piece of shit"?
You can be pretty damn sure that the OC creator is going to bitch at you for that. I would too.
Actually, I would probably just mock them, but still.
Instead, you should politely point out that their OC has some flaws. Also, pointing them to sources with information on the country is always nice too.
Critique =/= Trolling

Live the dream, don't talk about it!Doug TenNapel, independent comics creator, is an inspiration to me in many ways. He has a fun, accessible art style that is dramatic and fresh. His story telling is always askew in the best of ways. I don't think I've read one of his graphic novels without having some smiles and a surprise or two along the way. On top of that, he is outspoken about almost everything in his life. (I think of him as the Rush Limbaugh of comics- oh man, that sounds really bad, but early Rush, not present day Rush, if that helps.) I agree with most things he states on Facebook. BUT- the thing I am most inspired about him is his drive (in the old days we would call that "work ethic"). The guy does NOT give up. Because of that, he single-handedly will put out a new graphic novel a year. While creating a webcomic. While pitching new TV show development ideas in Hollywood. While running a half marathon. While working freelance jobs.Live the dream, don't talk about it!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)Well I keep finding myself explaining various plot points or origins every time I post a new selkie picture and corresponding vague blurb, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a central place where you can read up on the story, if you like. The idea is that I'll update the story here when I upload a new illustration, and fill in major plot points which aren't getting covered in the picture, so check back if you're interested.Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
BEFORE I START, I will answer once and for all this question: "Is this from Ondine/Secret of Roan Inish?" Not really, this story is as similar to either of those as they are to each other: they are all from the same mythology, but this series is about characters who do not exist in another selkie retelling. Here is some reading on basic selkie mythology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selkie

I want to let you know that I have more than I need now to take care of the major things-- I've sent a print to the artshow already and I should be able to go to the doctor by the end of next week. As strange as it sounds, please allow me to earn whatever else money I could use--I will still open up commissions and hopefully earn enough to make a trip to California for the Korra Artshow thats well into March (so I have a good amount of time, I just have to handle the work).
If it means anything at all, take all my thanks. Keep being the amazing people that you are; this includes those who shared their hard earned money with me as well as those who shared their words of support. I will brag about you guys to everyone I know lol, your support means so much, you have no idea. It just makes me want to work harder and do better and be better. The only wa
Captain America: The First Avenger Project Part 1Hey guys!

The biggest project I'm currently working on would be creating a life size display of Captain America's suit as seen in the 2011 film. Trying to get as close as I can to screen accuracy for this one. No room for cutting corners.
I won't be cosplaying Cap though.

I fell in love with the design the moment I laid my eyes on it. I've come to appreciate the Captain America TFA costume on a whole new different level now that I've studied it very meticulously. I adore military clothing and fashion and upon closer inspection, almost all of the parts of the costume are in fact genuine army articles cobbled together in a different way to form Cap's uniform! I learned so much in watching the featurette on Blu-Ray. Amazing and very thoughtful design!

I have heard some nasty things being said about me, and this is my response to all of those things. I have chosen to respond in love rather than anger.Reponse1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I want all of you people who have been saying those things and even the leader of the group to know that I will pray for you, and I don't hate you even though you hurt me. And for those who have betrayed my trust, I say the same thing to you. I will pray for all of you and hope that God will bless you as he has blessed me. Even if you are not Christian, I only hope the best for you.
As for me, I am Christian, and I will follow what my Lord tells me to do.
He has blessed me and forgiven me when I didn't deserve it, and I shall do the same for all of you who have hurt me.
The reason why I have chosen this response is because I sincerely believe that the MMDC desperately needs more love rather than anger and hate and ranting. None of t

So we mostly cosplay the APH Nordics, and NorIce and SuFin are like, the group's top two OTP's.
So :iconSwedenIsNotScary: (Our Sweden) and :iconDevilsFemaleChild: (Our Finland), are, of course, "married".

But now :iconHetalia-Luver: has a (real) boyfriend. Who decided he's our group's America.
And so Norway's cheating on Iceland with America.
But now :iconDevilsFemaleChild: has an obsession with IceFin.
And so now Iceland and Finland are cheating on Norway and Sweden with each other.
And I dunno how it happened but now Norway and Sweden are dating, too.
And Sweden is Iceland's butler.
