2012 Summer Dragon Olympics EventUpdate:Hello everyone. =General-EbonRose here. I want to apologize for the long lapse in judging and prize giving on this event, but lets get this wrapped up, late or not.2012 Summer Dragon Olympics Event1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This year DragonArtists will played host to the very first Summer Dragon Olympic games!This was a short-term themed event that took place during the 2012 London Olympics, and could have used some better advertising.
The rules for the event were:
Draw your dragon character(s) participating in Summer Games events.
Get creative! Dragons are not inhibited by the physical limitations of man!
Join the water dragons for synchronized swimming, or have your winged characters participate in a flying meter race or obstacle course. Watch the flexible Eastern dragons wow the crowd with their graceful gymnastics! It's up to you!
Don't miss out!The Dragon Olympics is an event that can only be held every two years, alternating between Summer and Winter games. So participation is only for a limited time.
THE WAR IS OVERSkrekrill Wins Epic Battle of Beaks and TalonsTHE WAR IS OVER2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Grandesque and Twistoult Still Reeling from Shock
The dust and the feathers have settled, leaving Maud and Skrekrill victorious. Within days of Grandesque's defeat, Skrekrill Nachtbrag moved into the contested lands, marking new borders and bringing the region under Queen Maud's banner. The Skrekrill gryphs are already growing fat and happy with the acquisition of these lovely new hunting grounds, while the gryphs of Grandesque are looking--or at least feeling--a little lean.
Though Twistoult tried to remain neutral, their neutrality has cost them dearly. Afraid of further Skrekrill incursion, Queen Titania has stationed troops along the Skrekrill and Twistoult borders, and sent soldiers into Twistoult itself to establish a permanent base facing the new Skrekrill territory. Queen Tulkiina had little say in the matter; her gryphons proved to be no match for Skrekrill, nor were they a match for Titania's "
>PremiseThe city of Phaeton was a near-utopia. The people lived out their lives with an established sense of normalcy, safe and secure in the mundane. The government watched over the city with a level head, with crime being kept to a minimum and, for the most part, effectively neutralized with nothing out of place. Science and the arts flourished, and the technology improved as time went on because of this. Eventually, Phaeton had become the most advanced city on the planet. Yes, life in Phaeton was good. Nothing could ruin what its people had helped build it into.>Premise2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Then The Switch happened.
No one saw it coming; but how could have anyone? There was no way to even imagine, let alone be prepared for what happened- and as a result, a large percentage of Phaeton's people were lost.
The significantly smaller population, left reeling, found themselves in a bizzare- almost surreal- world; above their heads loomed what had once been the ground, and below lay an endless expanse of sky. It was as if gra

just a wee ventwarning: un-planed, uncensored, unlegible tangent of rantingjust a wee vent9 months ago in Personal More Like This
ok, so I haven't done one of these in a long time. i do remember a time when I could vent and just by venting feel better. because writing to 'no one' always seems easier and if all of DA sees then what ever. only my closest and dearest will understand fully.
when I say ' you' I mean it to encompass a feeling directed at the way a person made me feel, this is not calling anyone out.
Zu is depressed; has been for a long time. why? I'm in pain, I live with chronic pain and very VERY few people know what it's like to be in pain every. single. day.
and those of us that do also know that you come to a point where you just stop mentioning it. because you get so sick of hearing yourself complain and wonder what your dear ones must think when they come to the point they stop asking ' how are you?' because you're never ' good' or you're just so very bad at lying about being 'good' or 'alright'.
I have good days and I

A small rant about other rants^This title fails :')A small rant about other rants10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've been stuck with this in my head for some time.
I know there are a LOT of underappreciated artists here on DA. Lots of amazing and inspirational artists have less than 3 comments on their pieces of art and have worked very long and hard to archieve that quality and anatomy.
Now, some people think it's nice to complain about this by writing nasty stuff about popular artists.
I've seen some really hurtful comments about this on tumblr. (and here)
I have nothing against ranting about artists who deserve more attention, but please feature them or something, at least do something for them.
A popular arguement against those 'popular' artists is this; 'their anatomy suck.' Yep, maybe they're not the best at anatomy, but people are allowed to draw what they want and how they want to do it. Besides, to be a good artists, you don't have to be great at anatomy (in my opinion). I personally think that the most important thing is to express something, a feeli
Feature: Dominance SystemFlight Rising is happy to debut a feature we have been working on behind the scenes for awhile: Flight Dominance! The Flight Dominance system is a way for the various elemental flights to compete against one another for weekly rewards.Feature: Dominance System1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Competing is simple: exalt dragons from your lair to send them to the front lines.
Exalted dragons contribute to your flight's army, and the flight with the most exaltations each Saturday will receive a week's worth of special benefits. These benefits are:
- An extra 250 treasure per day
- A 10% discount on all Marketplace merchandise (treasure shops only)
- A +1 boost to every stat of each of your dragons
You can track your flight's ranking live from the Flight Dominance page, which updates each page refresh. The left-side ladder displays how your flight is doing in the race for next week's tally. The right side image indicates which flight is holding dominance for the current week.
My Artist Advice for 2013I'm not an authority on anything and this is advice that most of you will probably have heard somewhere else but just in case some of you don't here it is.My Artist Advice for 20131 year ago in Personal More Like This
Don't make excuses. Draw. This goes with drawing, writing, playing music, whatever. You have to do it if it's what you want to do and it's the only way you're going to get better. If you're inexperienced, drawing gains you that experience. If you don't like where your quality level is, it's just going to stay there unless you keep practicing. Obvious right? Well not for everybody.
Don't apologize for your art. Quit shooting yourself in the foot. If you're showing it to friends or professors or professionals you have to let your art speak for itself. The moment you start saying "I'm sorry, this is old." or "this is shitty, sorry I didn't have time to finish this." then you're just undercutting yourself. If someone tells me that before showing me their art I kinda don't feel like looking at it. &

But I put it up anyway because I enjoy keeping a public record.
Later I look at it again and realize it's not terrible, and maybe even pretty damn good. And then I'm very thankful I didn't toss my "mistake" into the bin. I'm thankful I put it up so I could get feedback and thoughts. I'm thankful I said to myself "let even your mistakes be known". Because the "mistake" might not be as bad as you think. And every mistake is a learning opportunity.
World Wide Adoration Day!Adoration day? Err whats that?World Wide Adoration Day!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Why its the brand new awesome holiday I made up to celebrate, being good to each other and ourselves. No need for presents, no need for uncomfortable outfits (silly hats are optional).
Tomorrow, December 6th, 2012 will be the first annual Adoration Day.
Tomorrow, is a day to put aside anger, contempt and bad attitudes and just be nice. Not only to others around you, but to yourself. Spread a little love around the DA community and wish people a Happy Adoration Day and leave a nice comment on their page.
Far too often I'm seeing people belittle others, make snide comments on pages, post tediously long journals about so and so doing something to someone else. So for just one day be positive. Relax, and try not to let the world keep you down. When you feel down, when you feel you need to put down someone else, or even yourself. Just remember, everyone, behind the keyboard, and in your life, are human beings. They all have bad days, they all beat themselve

Can You Really See the Other Side?This aimless journal draws no conclusions. It provides no solution. I'm not sure one exists unless I gain magical psychic powers. It acts more of a sounding board of concerns about how story-tellers challenge themselves when coming at perspectives other than their own. You're told to "write what you know" growing up, but how better to know than to write?Can You Really See the Other Side?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's one of those sticky situations that I hope to address as a story-teller, and one I agonize over since the LAST thing I want to do is perpetuate ideas about other cultures that are simply not true.
What do you do when you're writing for a character not of your own "ethnicity" (if I can claim a particular ethnicity, being a mutt myself), but also with a distinctly different cultural experience than your own? Is it possible to write a person as an individual first and ignore the challenges they face as a minority? Can research ever possibly fill that gap in knowledge?
These kinds of questions pop up in my mind every time I
