(all through the week, there will be Share the Sherlock Love. For more information, see here: http://love-sherlock-holmes.deviantart.com/journal/IMPORTANT-Share-the-Sherlock-Love-313621554)
STARTING NOW: A chain-story. Since we are technically a BBC Sherlock fan group (or ended up that way) I'm going to ask that we keep it BBC. That means Sherlock and John, not Holmes and Watson. Also, for the sake of everyone, keep it relatively slash free. So no sex or anything. They can hug, but anything over that line is a bit much. Here's how this works: http://rowlingson39.deviantart.com/art/Chain-Letter-information-314039255

Dust and Shadow, by Lyndsay Faye
This book pits Holmes against Jack the Ripper. It's very well-written and in character. Exciting and fun. It's interesting to see Holmes collide with one of the most-well known events of his time.
The Beekeeper's Apprentice' (Mary Russel #1) by Laurie R King
Features a retired Sherlock Holmes meeting a teenaged girl and the two team up. It is a very good story and series, but I do have qualms with alot of it. Still, very worth the read!

Having a Comic Block?I am not really sure if this concept is already in the dictionary but I guess, we all know what this implies. “Comic Block” like Artist’s Block, is when a comic artist suffer from lack of motivation or inspiration to continue conceptualizing and/or drawing his or her story. You are suffering from a “Comic Block” if you have at least one of the following symptoms:Having a Comic Block?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
You already know the sequence of the story, but you are unable to draw the scenes (for each panel/frame) because the scenes are too difficult or uncomfortable to draw.
You can draw the scene but you are not sure if you should continue with the story or episode you fabricated. You have questions like: Is the next episode / page consistent with my overall story? Does adding the page help progress my story or would it just confuse the readers?
You know both the sequence and you are confident that you can draw the scenes but

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

How to determine what you should charge for your work
In light of the absolutely horrendous commission page DA started up which encourages artists to sell their work for literally pennies, let me talk about pricing artwork. Or more specifically, how I price my work.
This...guide? Advice? Thing? Highlights what I've learned about pricing throughout the last few years. I do not touch on the subject of beginner pricing, simply because there are no set guidelines for that and beginner pricing usually ends up being extremely subjective. This guide assumes that the reader is somewhat experienced in their craft and is looking for pointers on pricing. However I still highly encourage beginners to read! This is what pricing should be like, not mere pennies for hours upon hours of work. This also focuses on crafts and sewing but a lot of it is s

Jeremy Brett. 'Granada Sherlock Holmes' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sherlock_Holmes_(1984_TV_series)
Known as the definitive Sherlock Holmes. Brett had done most of the Sherlock Holmes stories before he died. He was truly brilliant. I direct your attention to his first episode, A Scandal in Bohemia. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ou_CarzFiEM

Detective Inspector Lestrade entered the dark cottage and spied the distraught man Frank Lloyd sitting on his sofa by candle light. A uniformed Officer passed by and assured Lestrade that they would have the power on in an instant. Lestrade then approached the man and asked for his story.
“My wife is away on a business trip, so I'm here alone for the week,' Lloyd said. 'I was watching an old movie when the lights suddenly went out. Just then, I heard some strange noises coming from the bedroom. I got up to investigate when all of a sudden someone came flying out of the bedroom in such a rush that they knocked me down. Although I did not get a look at the offender, I did hear them open the front door and run out.. At this point, I crawled over to my desk and picked up my phone to call you people. When I got off the phone I lit some candles and checked the bedroom, that’s when I saw that my wife's diamond r

He took the case and started his investigation. The woman seemed to have come for an early walk, too. Seeing her handbag lying nearby, Lal ruffled through it and found what he wanted - her identity card. Her name was Lakshmi, and her house was about a ten minute drive away. Her number was also written on her card. Lal phoned the given number.
"Is this Lakshmi's residence?"
"Yes. And I am her husband. What do you want?"

'Thank heavens you’re here!” exclaimed 17 year old Rob, the clerk at the little corner convenience store. Detective Brown had come in to avoid the rain and get a coffee.
The little store was warm and cozy despite the driving rain outside, and I was pleased to note that Robbie was obviously doing a good job of keeping the place neat and tidy. The floor was spotless, and all the shelves were neatly arranged.
“What’s wrong, Rob?” Brown asked.
“You just missed them!” the young boy told him. “Two men just burst into here, held a gun on me and demanded all the money in the register. Mr. Loan says if that happens, we should just give it over, so I did, but as soon as they were gone, I ran outside to see if I could get their license number, or at least see the car they were driving.&

Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?

Shaving Faux fur:
For Faux fur plushie makers, You should invest in a WAHl Kennel Pro, I bought two Andis clippers, both gave out after trimming faux fur for a few min. Also Make sure to keep your Clippers oiled and cleaned after using.
I recommend trim the Faux fur first before cutting out the pattern, so if you do cut too deep you can always make a new piece to replace it before sewing your plush together. Make sure to trim with the fur pile not against it, or you will just cut all the fur off, you want to trim it not make it bald.
Keep in mind being a plush artist gets very pricey, with Faux fur some fur colors are rare and you will some

Ubisoft did an amazing work and game looks awesome.
I'm waiting for this new program called Archive_X to be updated to support AC4.
In meantime I'm trying to extract it with Ninja ripper but it won't be as good as ones from Archive_X.
So please be patient As soon as I get him I'll convert him for XNALara
I'm pretty busy with faculty and exams so I don't release new models often :\
BTW I'm rigging Charles Lee atm and he's half finished so expect him as well.

World Building Part 1 - The SetupBefore we get into the details of building a world, its a good idea to start a document that will house all of the information about your world. You can start this document with placeholders and fill in the information as you figure it out. Your document should include the following sections:World Building Part 1 - The Setup2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Planets - where you can list the planets in your world if there is more than one, moons, suns, and what the planet would look like from the sky (any rings, color etc...). You can then go into the continents and cities.
Species - where you list all the species of all the planets. This section will give what each species characteristics are from life spans to looks to development, abilities even reproduction if you want to delve that far. You also might want to mention the culture, religion, etc.. of the species here as well.
Characters - where you keep all the profiles of all your characters. Not only that, you can add their history, story lines, plot li
