Things you should never ask an Artist to do:
1. Free Work.
Do I really have to explain this one? You wouldn't walk into any other business offering a service and ask for free clothes or a burger right? No, you pay for them without question and they take a lot less creativity, time to make and cost a lot less. Why ask people to work for free on something you couldn't make yourself? If you believe in your vision, then I suggest find funding for it to pay the people doing the work for you. This goes for family as well, don't get me wrong, I love my family and enjoy doing something for them but it means so much more when I OFFER to do something for free than when it's expected. Let the artist decide whether or not they want to give their time for free without asking them, as a rule treat them with res

And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages. At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
And then the whining school boy, with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school.
And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress' eyebrow.
Fashion Issue IV by Staged
Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths and beaded like the pard, Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon's mouth.

New Generation: Carter Carter - Carter was born in Goldenrod city, and was raised by his extended family, as his parents were traveling abroad, studying legendary pokemon. Carter's home was a dare care center, and was around pokemon all the time. One day, a female feraligator gave birth, leaving behind an egg. The Trainer was to preoccupied with training for the Pokemon league, and didn't take the egg, leaving it with Carter's family. Carter took care of the egg. After a few months, it hatched, and out came a small Totodile, which he named Sid. Carter and the totodile were inseparable, as they always went on adventures together. As Carter grew and matured, so did Sid, his personality evolving from cute and harmless into a bit of a pervert, with amazing skills of thievery. Despite all of Carter's efforts, Sid wouldn't evolve, perhaps out of stubbornness, or maybe because girls wouldn't hold him if he was a feraligator. When the time came for Carter to go on his adventure, Sid was tNew Generation: Carter4 years ago in Personal More Like This

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

'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.&
My DeviantART Storyooo boy there might be alot so let's make all of the boring stuff rly small ye.My DeviantART Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sooo my experiences on DeviantART began like 7 years ago, I didn't really have an account cus I knew I was terrible at art and I knew I'd get alot of laughs for drawing chibis with french fry limbs, so I just didn't bother using Deviantart for anything other than looking for fanart of my favorite animus and vidyagames.
Then in 2010, my bro made his DeviantART account and we started using that for scopin for art cus, heh, at that point we were able to look at *ahem* questionable content. But for me, questionable content gave me the sorts of references that normal artists would have a tougher time giving you, and really honestly, I watch most of the people I watch today because of the art. I don't really care what you draw, well I do but not in the way most of your fans probably do, if you made good art, you're amazing to me and can inspire me in many ways.
So anyway, let's fast forward two years, when I only

With that, you have no idea how unfathomably humbled I am at the fact that there are that many people out there who have taken an interest in my work here on deviant art as well as on the blog. Again Thank You!!
So to commemorate this occasion I've decided to give back to the community which has been good to me with my set of 1:1 scaled, ready to use RWBY Weapon Drawings of the props I've made to date.
In this download you will find a number of PDF's that you may print out and use with whatever Propmaking technique you are comfortable with, to bring into this world a Crescent Rose, Myrtenaster or Gambol shroud of your own.
So again Thank You! and I hope these will be of use and hope you out there

Greetings and ThoughtsHello! My name is Hound, and I enjoy creativity. Let me tell you about myself for a bit. I have always loved art in all of it's forms. I used to draw concept art and take photos, but now I write music and poems. I play many instruments and I am currently working on an ambient project. At the time of this entry, I am 18 and striving to become an electronics engineer. Hopefully I will design technology to keep humanity moving forward, and the minds of people always active. We will not continue to progress if we do not ask questions, never searching for the deeper meaning of things.Greetings and Thoughts4 years ago in Personal More Like This
My journal entries will be written like a personal blog into my journey, a journey to find art that truely shows humanity, life, universe, and the depictions into a persons day-to-day world.
As my first entry, I must ask myself a basic question. What is art? For me, it is the expression of our inner-self. Everything we have gone through, everything we see and hear, and everybody that we connect with. Somehow a

I've been playing this AC4 for a while and I'm loving it
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.
For AC4 I'm planing to convert Edward first than Anne Bonny
Thanks for support

Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

Lestrade looked around the office from the pictures on the walls to the desk. It bore the remain's of the man's lunch-Half-eaten sandwich, and a glass of water.
'Does he always drink water with ice?' Lestrade asked, looking at the glass which bore a few all-but-melted ice cubes.
'Yes. They've melted since then, but he likes his drink to stay cold.' She sighed. 'I wish I saw who went in...who did this...'
'Maybe they didn't have to be in the room,' Lestrade asked. He went on his phone, and asked that when the autopsy was done, they check for poison. Then he turned to the woman. 'Now,' he said, 'Maybe you wanna answer some questions, namely why you would want to kill your husband...'
How did she kill her husband?
