Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-upBasic Information:Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As said before: English is not my native language. I'm sorry for every mistake I made while writing. I'm just showing you what works for me. This is a "you can" tutorial and not "you must". I hope this gives you a basic idea on how I do it and helps you as well. I will not show you any brands of make-up I work with since they are different from country to country. I'm not a dermatologist or a professional make-up artist, so I can't give you tips for "problem skin" cases like acne and so on. Please consult a doctor and let them give you tips for what's best to use before buying something randomly
If you don't know what make-up to use out of the hilarious amount of available products in stores ask a vendor in the store of your choice. They will help you.
This tutorial will be the base for every upcoming make-up related tutorial I will post in the future.
First of all I clean my skin and apply vanishing crème. It's always good to do so
Mandy's Ranger B-Day Testimonials - Vic's ReactionThought we should feature this again because, it's just soooo, so sweet.Mandy's Ranger B-Day Testimonials - Vic's Reaction2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Mandy, who's the head honcho over at the Rangers, a while back actually started the first Project for Vic with the help of the awesome Ranger leaders from the yahoo/official branch. Mandy and co gathered letters from Rangers all over for a long long time and worked hard to put it all together, first Vic gets a few gifts, but when he gets the last gift his reaction is just priceless.
Watch this for extreme "awe" moments.
When the little link pops up when you press the link, view it through your media player, *Darth Vader Voice* and let the feels consume yoooou.

Dodge Dart Contest WinnersThe designers at Chrysler had some tough decisions to make. The semi-finalists in both of the Digital and Traditional categories presented a wide variety of approaches and techniques all inspired by the new Dodge Dart. The three winners for Digital and Traditional were selected after much deliberation and consideration. They will soon be on display in the lobby of the Dodge-Chrysler headquarters.Dodge Dart Contest Winners2 years ago in Official deviantART Contests More Like This

SOPA has returned and we must stop them again.
This is just terrible that these people just can't get it that we don't want SOPA in are Governments whats worse is that this is a global bill so everyone in the country and the world needs to join together and say 'NO' to SOPA we need to stop these people we need to rise up and say no to SOPA again.
For those who are new to SOPA it is a bill that will place you in federal prison just for having content of anything like a movie, a song, or anything say your minding your own business and your singing your favorite song to SOPA that will land you in federal prison, that's how corrupt these people are they are monsters they don't care who or what they have to hurt to get there money they will do anything to get there money, whats worse Obama used that 'I'm against SOPA' to win his election that is just stupid everyone I know I keep saying this but we need to stand up and say 'NO' to SOPA say no to this hor

Design CONTEST!Guys, I'm holding a contest for anyone who wants to enter!Design CONTEST!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The deadline is 30 November 2012. You have more than 2 mounths!
As the title says, it's a design contest
Here all the info
-Entries: how many you want.
-You can use a lineart.
-I'd prefer if you don't use any wolf/fox maker.
I really like light and dark brown, grey, black and white. I'd love to see a white wolf (not completely white, but with something grey, or brown...the important thing is that its colors remind snow and ice), and a black one.
Of course, not just those two, but also brown (I love them!), grey and colorful wolves and foxes. Yeah, also foxes!
I love natural design, so please no green or blue!
As you can see in my gallery, my characters have semi-simple designs: I don't really like strips and spots, 'cause they don't look realistic on a wolf. For foxes, spots are ok.
I'm searching something new, an unique design. Try to

I can hardly believe it. Is that even normal?!
OK. I forgot to tell you guys about some important things that have been happening, so here comes my year of 2012 in a nutshell!
I finally convinced my parents, after a whole life of discussion and fights, to let me into ART SCHOOL!:iconexcitedlaplz:
But they said it would come with a price! I would have to work for one year before that (in an office that is, nothing to do with art).
So I got a temporary job with a few contacts, and it was all pretty much what I expected from it: pretty much narrow-minded! Everyone there was 40+, and it was awkward to be the only teenager, besides some other trainers.
I didn't see anyone my age the whole year o.O I even forgot what they look like no, I don't have any friends :c
BUT! During August, I attended to the first short-duration art course of my whole life!!! My teacher was the

If you click the ‘Play’ button in the middle of the window you’ll be taken back to the Livestream homepage but you’ll still be able to watch the stream (just not without the fancy black frame and background).

A word of two about drawing wolf's eyes :)Hello dear Members,A word of two about drawing wolf's eyes :)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This is my first journal entry for the Group, so first of all: howdy to all
I wanted to do something that could help you a little with drawing wolves. So I will begin with something I am familiar with in drawing - the eyes. Many of you are suprised when, for example, their blue-eyed wolves are declined from "Realistic Wolves" folder, so maybe a few words about natural wolf eye's colours for a warm-up
Most popular colour is yellowish-green or greenish-yellow which can look differenty in various light's conditions. Great example of that colour is Chetan from WolfPark:
Take a look at wonderful Orca, he's eyes have also rather pale, but more yellow than green shade and come to life in bright light:
