This History of Ash FoxHow Ash came to be, well she has went through many changes, ever since I found out about fursonas I tried to make one that I could stick to, But since I was still trying to find my self in RL, nothing really stuck.
the first ones I remember is My orange stitch like sona
Then me and my friends went through a phase where we wanted to be known by a color XD I got green so my sona then changed to green
Since I was a big fan of Danny phantom, the green form I think was her ghost form, and the brown was her normal its been so long i'm not 100% sure X'D
After my phase with Stitch ended my love for Pokemon came back and I got a pokemon sona, even joined a pokemon team lol.
and with the blue Pikachu sona came a blue a wolf/fox sona

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
Rivals and IdolsRivals and Idols5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I personally feel that you should see people you admire/idols as a level you should strive to achieve or surpass, not think of them as gods you can never hope of ever being like.
That will only make you depressed and not strive to be great, we all have Potential as long as we have a passion for what we do.
I suggest taking a look at a person you admire the work of, an setting your self a goal to achieve that level! Make them a Rival in your mind, think of them as a person that started out just like you, but are a wee bit ahead of the game, you may have a little farther to travel on your journey of becoming better or surpassing them.
But never give up keep up that burning passion.

Copyright Abuse part 2Yes, style is an important part of being a Professional artist, But if you look around here on DA this isn't a very professional place.Copyright Abuse part 25 months ago in Personal More Like This
Style comes from being inspired by others, sure some comes from nature and things around us but allot comes from things we enjoy in others work.
Sometimes peoples styles will end up looking similar or the same, based on what they enjoy, dose that make them a bad artist? No! they are still doing their own thing. Besides style never stays 100% the same, its always growing and changing.
If someone is interested in trying your "style", its because they like your work, copying a style is how we developed our own over time.
DA is mostly filled with Hobbies, kids, and freelancers. These people don't really have to worry about having a original style, because they are not pros and allot of commissioners like generic anyway.

New info about the new animal planet.
After a 9% drop in prime time viewing in 2007, Animal Planet underwent a makeover to increase viewership. Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manage of Animal Planet Media said,
"We feel a little too human, a little too soft, a little too all-family and not powerful enough. We're being more aggressive and tapping into the instinctual nature of compelling animal content.
The channel wanted to replace its paternalistic and preachy image with a more entertaining and edgier one beginning February 3, 2008 and debuted eight new series and specials. R

The most I can do it, is red-line anatomy and give you critiques, On what I personally think is right. You might have a different view since art is what you make of it, we are all open to our own interpretation but no one is 100% right.
If you really want to become a good artist, you need passion to do so, a drive to become better, study hard and hone your skills, if you don't have that, then you can never become better.
No fancy tablet, program, or expensive equipment can make you a better artist, it can help it look a little nicer yes, but the skills to make it, is all on your trail and error from experience.
IF you really want to learn how to draw, get inspired forget about fail, just enjoy it have fun with your art, Art shouldn't be work to you, it should be pure entertainment.

What is real music?“MCR saved my life, and their music is so meaningful, unlike other music today like rap and country.”What is real music?8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Let me tell you, friends, there is not a more ignorant statement to make you look foolish and naïve when it comes to music. Whenever I see a fellow MCR fan state something like the above, I can only roll my eyes and scoff at the stupidity of such an idea. As they say, there is much more than meets the eye. If you simply graze the surface of a music genre and consider everything else to be more of the same, you miss the greater picture deduced on the tip of a proverbial iceberg.
It surprises me that some MCR fans feel so fanatically about other music genres outside of the MCR music-relation world, considering they have been given this treatment by the general public as well. “My Chemical Romance leads a death cult”, “My Chemical Romance fans are all emo kids who cut themselves”, “My Chemical Romance plans mass suicide pact after death

Some advice on tweeting the MCR guysAfter everything Gerard’s been through on Twitter recently, I figured it was time to list some guidelines for tweeting the guys. I hope I don’t sound controlling or condescending, but a lot of fans seem to honestly not understand why certain things are offensive, and there are a lot of misconceptions like “oh, he’ll never see it anyway.” Hopefully, this guide will help us show the guys respect.Some advice on tweeting the MCR guys3 months ago in Personal More Like This

First and foremost, always assume that he’ll see your tweet. A lot of fans send the guys rude jokes to impress their friends, or take their anger and frustration out on them, because they don’t think they’ll ever see it anyway. But we know that Gerard, Mikey, and Frank see nasty tweets, because they’ve responded to a few, and they must s

Random angry/drama-spewing comments from TL;DR-ers are unwarranted and unwelcome. Thank you for understanding!Standing up against price complaints1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I just had a new complaint about my prices for my Pay to use deviations... I've had a few of these in the past (for both commissions and pay-to-use deviations) and I try to handle them the same way.
1.) calm any frustration
2.) collect my thoughts
3.) and write my explanation for my own actions.
(I seriously have to explain my own actions and decisions that I have chosen for the permissions and pricing of my own creations? Really??)
I know that most people that complain aren't intending to be rude... but they end up looking that way to artists. (Especially to artists that are trying to make some extra $ to support their passions as well as their food, their rent/mortgage, car loans and other bills.) Art isn't just fun

Firstly, thank you to all my watchers, followers, and fans. I rarely say 'fans' because to me one would have to be famous to have fans but it seems more or less over the last couple months (or years even) I've become somewhat infamous for all the wrong reasons. More so when it comes to my small circle of friends.
You see, I don't get on easily with others, not online or in real life. More so in real life, mostly out of fear I suppose... But that's neither here nor there. Back on track.
What I'm trying to say is just thank you, for putting up with the crap I've pulled, the misery I've brought on through countless grueling journals about how crap my life is, this, that, and the next thing.

never something to be ashamed of.
never something to be used as an excuse for behavior they know better than to do.
never something to make one feel they are above another, nor below them.
never something people should pretend to have to feel part of a minority.
never something that should have become a fad to play with.

never something that should be used as insults or slurs.
never something to distance one from those they care for.
