CatCatalogue Contest:iconyarnballcat5ns::iconyarnballcat4end::iconyarnballcat3add2::iconyarnballcat2add::iconyarnballcat1start:CatCatalogue Contest3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Do you find, whenever you're ill or feel down, cats will always come and sit on your knee or curl up next to you? If you're looking sad they'll give you a friendly trill. And of course, whenever they bring you a dead mouse they're saying they love you. But you're not going to say thank you back in that way. They can settle for a tummy rub.
So the contest this time is Cats and Love. :iconlovecatplz:
So photos that show the love from your cats, they can be curled up with another cat and look adorable, or maybe they're bringing a huge smile to a child or an elderly person. It can be anything.
Submit your photos in this special folder here. http://catcatalogue.deviantart.com/gallery/42425136
Competition starts : 5th March 2013
Competition ends : 30th March 2013
Good luck to all entrants

Character Question TagTagged by :icondustsketches:Character Question Tag11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Usually I dont do tags but this seems to be some SoC bandwagon at the moment so... why not xDD *choses my 3 most active OCs*
Choose your OC's:
Do you want a hug?
Sandro: Sure~ Why not?
Alex: You are a general, shouldn't you be afraid they thrust a knife in your back during a hug? So, no, no hug for me...
Keel: ...Okay, now I don't want a hug anymore...
Are you a virgin?
Sandro: Uh... w-well... no...
Keel: Can't we go on to a -less- awful and private question!?
Do you have any kids?
Sandro: No and I don't think I ever will have any...
:bulletgreen: Alex: I used to have a daughter, but she died 7 years ago... I hope I will have kids one day again though.
:bulletyellow: Keel: I don't think I would make a good fat

April Contest:iconyarnballcat5ns::iconyarnballcat4end::iconyarnballcat3add2::iconyarnballcat2add::iconyarnballcat1start:April Contest4 months ago in Contests More Like This
Cats sleep almost twenty hours a day, the rest of the time they howl for food, hunt and claw your wallpaper - well that's what Arran and Skye do. But most of the time, these little angels are curled up somewhere looking absolutely adorable.
So the theme of this contest is "Cute and Comfy Places to Catnap'
We want you to take the best photo of your cat/s sleeping, it can be a strange sleeping place like the bath, which Arran took a liking too. Or it can be on a silk dressing gown which Skye loved and Mum didn't - when she saw the claw marks.
So it's up to you.
Submit your entries here into this special contest folder.
The folder is called Catnap Contest
Character Design Work Shop CDWS: DAY 3I think I have enough candidate for the next poll, thank you for the inputs. I had plans for 2 polls but because this decision bring a big turn in the design I'm going to stick with just one for today.Character Design Work Shop CDWS: DAY 31 year ago in Personal More Like This
Not all idea is included with this poll but I consider all the ideas useful and felt some of them would be an candidate for the future poll. (As some options would cause a conflict with other choices...)
The objective of this poll is to decide the background of the character which mostly affect the costume. It's not a decision to define the exact location but to aid the feeling and atmosphere in which character comes from. I've also avoid using names that can indicated specific race, culture, location, etc...
General Feeling and background of the character:
- Middle East
- Tribal (Tribes to nomadic life style)
- Society (People residing in cities, towns and villages)
- North European
- Lost Civilization (Ancient culture that existed and gone)
It would be
Character Design Work Shop CDWS: DAY 2Now we have the result, so I've decided to close the poll and here's the overview.Character Design Work Shop CDWS: DAY 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
Age Preference: 20's
Character Direction: Neo Fantasy
General Personality: Neutral
(TLDR folks can SKIP this part and go down to OBJECTIVE OF THIS JOURNAL)
Because for the Neo Fantasy vote, I think it's good to prioritize the costume aspect of the design and then shift to the body feature. I believe the result opened up further options compared to the others. If we had different result, I would have built a poll for let's say, occupation which was an alternative route of decision making. At least we know we're going to be working on a female costume for the 20's, so we can leave that aside for now...
I had several means to taking general personality poll, it was mostly for the visual purpose. If the decision was evil my visual approach would have been some what simpler to establish, Dark tone, slick feature, perhaps a body type for agility, it's cliche but the

NOTE OF REQUEST: I would like to ask politely for those who isn't participating to disable poll and journal notification if isn't too much of a burden. This is to prevent workshop related messages overflow your dA notification.
Thanks to everyone, I think I have enough people to run the show. Honestly it's more than I expected, so let's begin the workshop. For the starter I came up with 4 poll options. At this point we like to avoid any definite decision to prevent ideas locking into specific direction. Since it the first workshop, I like to stay within my comfort zone, rather than going over my head. (Which means we'll be doing a human character design and not creature or something else.)
I added few notes about the poll options to clear things out.
This actually is a 'definite' decision that can potentially loose interest of those who voted for the opposite result. In which case I'm consi
REAL CREATIVISM LOGA lot of people ask me what do i think when im drawing, whats your creative process, and what are the magical fairies you are thinking while you draw, about life, beauty and wisdom of the world. You will be surprised how thats not what i think while i draw and how this process repeats all the time while i draw.REAL CREATIVISM LOG1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The purpose of this journal its to let people know how we are all filled with doubts agony and stupid funny things while we draw. So you wont feel you are doing something wrong.
Will be cool if this became a spam, and people started to share in their journals the same way i did while you are at work.
Okay, lets star, first the setting, if you had seen the tv show 24, picture that way while im drawing, with several cameras on my sides, this will make the reading more funny, if you havent seen the show picture this sound each time you read time passes, while im drawing.
