Apparel Collection: Deviant CursiveToday, I'm thrilled to tell you about Cursive. This design was a definitely trying, but it worked out well in the end. Plus, I had fun in the process and want to share with you this little art tip. Move your whole body as you draw for fluid strokes and dynamic lines. It really works and I had fun practicing that technique during this piece.Apparel Collection: Deviant Cursive2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes the simplest pieces take the most time to perfect. It's one thing to draw a word all crazy and let the color scheme carry it visually, but to write words in an elegant form can be difficult to perfect. You'll see throughout the story of this piece many iterations the piece went through. I think I wrote this out over 100 times before I felt that it had the right essence.
The concept started in pencil, using many variations of letter forms and fonts to see if one of them would catch my attention. Script styles quickly caught my eye, but I was not sold on which medium to use. So I explored many.
I went through page after page of co

Chapter 1: A Rude Awakening
"Oi. OI, WAKE UP! Get yer tail inta gear. Don’t’cha remember today’s the day they’re announcin’ who made the cut to be an explorer?"
You open your eyes only to see a dark figure looming over you. It's definitely not the most pleasant morning welcome you've had, but you get out of bed nonetheless.
"Now that’s more like it! Ah, I remember the day ye was just a brand new student at the trainin’ school. Brings tears to me eyes to see yer finally gettin’ yourself out there explorin’, goin’ on adventures and stuff like that. Not that I’d cry for someone like yerself, of course."
As Blueberry rambles on about the good old days, you try and remember that dream you had last night. Something about Deia? You’ve never heard of it before. You decide to ask her if she knows anyth

Something to Think AboutAlright, this has been on my mind for a little while and I would love to get more ideas on it. You might need to look at a map of Amestris for this, so I suggest opening another tab and finding a picture to reference. (Unless you're already familiar with FMAB geography.)Something to Think About2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Remember when Ed met Ling for the first time? Ling mentioned that he'd JUST crossed the desert. However, the two of them met in the town of Rush Valley, which is to the southern part of Amestris. When you look at a map, it's pretty obvious that the desert occupies the Eastern border...
So how about this. Everyone post a comment saying how you think Ling made it across to Rush Valley! (Especially with no money!) Make up some sort of story to fill in the gap of Ling's travels. Maybe he was a stowaway on a train? Or maybe he use that Xingese charm to seduce some young lady to give him a ride. Either way, make up a story!

It's already that time of year again, isn't it? The Festival of Fear... Why do you suppose they call it that? Is the Phantom truly something to be feared? How many are there that have been harmed by Philone himself? I can assure you, there are none.
Here Explorer, have you ever been told the legend of the Phantom Philone? Most who live in Mana know he exists, but little of them know anything of who he was, and why he is here. I am one of the few who can tell you of him, if you would care to listen. Oh don't be so shy, I have time to spare! All of my customers are much too frightened out of their fur to even bother stopping by at this hour. Honestly, sometimes I have to wonder why I even bother to keep open this late. Hmph!
Now then, Phantom Philone's story begins many moons ago, long before Mana's Explorer Guild was established. The village wasn't much then - it was much smaller than the Mana Village you know today. Dur

Hey there, newbie! It's been ages since I've seen you around here. Guess you've been busy, what with being an Explorer and all now, huh? Still, you should drop by the forge more often, you know. The only visitor I've gotten in the last week is Latte, and listening to her talk about clothes isn't really exciting. Oh, u-um... please don't tell her I said that!
How am I? Well, I'm glad you asked! See, I've been doing some serious thinking for the last week or two, and frankly, the guys up at the town hall seem pretty stressed out. So, I thought I'd give them a little surprise. It's almost time for Thanksgiving, and we can't be having all that negativity all around here. We should be celebrating! You with me?
I'm glad somebody agrees! Well since you do, I guess there's no harm in showing you what I've built for them. Quick, come around to the back. This way!

Japanese 101Konnichiwa Minna san! Watashi wa baka desu! Watashi no shumi wa e wo kaku koto desu! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu! （＾Ｏ＾☆♪Japanese 1012 years ago in Personal More Like This
So okay some of you got jellin of my fine japanese language desu ne.
I thought of why not teach my lovely watchers speak japanese?
Okay let's start with the simple one. If you want your sentence to sound like japanese you need to put 'desu' at the end of each sentences. Now before we start using 'desu' let me tell you first what it means. It would be stupid if you're using the word that you don't know right? Okay the word 'desu' comes from the latin word 'Canius Femina' meaning bitch. For example I love you desu (I love you bitch).. Tehehe kidding aside. Okay the meaning of 'desu' is really hard to explain but basically it's a polite modifier or it can also mean " It is ", "Those are" , or "I am." or whatever.
Now that you know the word desu let's use it in a sentence.
Fuck you desu. V(=^･ω･^= )v

All you have to do is send me a note with the screenshot of the pageviews at 10,000 and the first person to send it in gets 50 and a simple portrait drawing of a character they want(there will be conditions of course).

When recently asked how his political candidate would explain certain positions taken during the
nomination process with contrary positions to be taken during the general election, the campaign chief
replied that stated political positions were “like an Etch A Sketch,”—meaning they could simply be
flipped over, erased and begun over from scratch.
Were it that adult life were as simple as a happy Etch A Sketch memory from childhood.
(The campaign chief took heavy heat for his flippant, if truthful, statement.) The incident made
me wonder how many of us had early experiences as “sketch artists” with that incredible red toy that
has become almost standard issue for so many children still to this day.
