For a franchise that has grown from strength to strength, I personally believe that Ubisoft now have an amazing opportunity to take a bold step with Assassin’s Creed, and introduce a female lead protagonist.

Uni daze & Requests/CommissionsStarted uni about 2 weeks ago now, was a lot more hectic than I originally thought it was gonna be :/Uni daze & Requests/Commissions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anywho ~ I've started taking writing requests/commissions, the whole reason for this being to improve my writing and get some of it out there. And maybe making a couple quid in the process.
To those who have already sent me notes, don't worry I've already started them and will hopefully have them out soon.
Free requests cover fanfictions or original:
Very short stories (500 800 words)

How To Commission MeUpdate on my Commission Infos, as I thought of these points as necessary to add.How To Commission Me2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you want to commission me, no panic, you don't have to spend a huge amount of points. We can set up a certain amount, or you can decide how much you want to give me. Though I would ask for a minimum, depending on what I have to write about.
I will work on it as fast as possible. May take a little longer if I can't immediately think of something matching.
OCs are preferred, as I feel a little awkward with using characters from film or stuff. But that doesn't mean you can't request it.
In case you want a fan-fic, you most probably will have to provide me informations about the characters's personalities and general behaviour towards each other. Otherwise, I can't guarantee anything. I am horrible at anime series or anything (I barely watch any series), so please do take this in consideration when asking for fandom.
Same naturally applies

Below, I will list my suggestions for cleaning linearts, as well as adding members' suggestions as they post their comments on this journal.
All that I ask is if you make a suggestion, give me a title to give your suggestion and tell me which image-editting program the tutorial is for!
If you want to just hand your lineart to someone else to clean, be it because you don't have photoshop or anything of that kind or you just don't want to, I will also be listing people that are willing to clean your lineart for you.
If you want one of these people to clean it for you, please note them with the subject "Lineart Cleaning", and give them a link to the lineart on DA or Photobucket link. Also give them an email address where they can send the clean lineart fo

Here you can see I took GRADUAL steps to get the style I attain today.
And I will tell you how I got there.
I was mesmerized by :iconnashya: older arts, she was my up-most idol!
Here have a look:
I noticed Her way before I found charlie in 2006! she even did a brilliant tutorial!
I still love it! and i followed it step by step to accomplish her style, alas i couldn't quiet replicate it.
here: but you can see from her work, where i got my technique from, starting from dark to light and building on top.
I also noticed: :iconsayda: to me she was godly! I followed her tutorials and colored her line arts!
funnily enough entering one of her competitions i found charlie in the bunch of participants, this was way before she became a master.
OH lookie dark to light!

Promoting a friend's bookCAPTURE YOUPromoting a friend's book2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nothing much to say personally. I'm trying to keep my personal ramblings to a minimum even if DA seems to have retracted the more-problematic-than-helpful new Journal system (but it still remains when you want to edit a journal, and I'm not impressed to get a blank journal page instead, how is that editing? Tch), but it's been a top-turvy day today (well not really, just felt like it in a sense -I was in a very good mood one thing and then feeling kind of 'blah' and out-of-it the next :/).
Anyhow, I'm writing this new journal post to help promote my best friend :iconMistress-Penlopye:'s recently published book "Capture You" [Volume 1]. It's basically a gay drama and love novel adapted into an original story from her breathtaking epic and popular Ichigo x Grimmjow fanfiction "Twin Flames" [Volume 1]. If you love and followed her Bleach fanfictions and/or simply love yaoi (or more appropriately, gay novel) in general I highly recommend you to read

Bonsoir ou bonjour
J'ai le grand plaisir de vous annoncer la sortie de mon nouveau livre => Planète Senokke. C'est le 10eme tome de la saga des Mondes d'Amarande et mon 11eme livre tout confondu Inutile de vous dire à quel point je suis émue, c'est toujours un grand moment pour moi et j'ai pris beaucoup de plaisir à écrire cette histoire tragi-comique
Comme les histoires précédentes, celle-ci est disponible sur Kindle et sur Lulu. Frisettes vous y attend avec son plus beau sourire
J'en profite pour vous annoncer que j'ai pris la décision d'arrêter la saga d'Amarande à 12 volumes. Ce sera un arrêt a priori définitif mais je me réserve tout de même le droit d'y revenir plus tard si des idées intéressantes survenaient. On ne sait jamais… La saga devrait se conclure avec Planète Eleatell : what else ?!

Feature and UpdateI have finally finished the painting I have been working on and off again on for about a year, but I was an idiot and dropped my laptop messing up the screen. I won't be able to actually scan the painting to post a photo until my screen replacement arives. Hopefully, this will happen sometime within the next week. While I wait on the screen to get here, I am working on another painting that will be an art trade with my good DA friend :iconfanhir: of her original character Fanhir. After that, I have a couple of fantasy painting I am really looking forward to doing.Feature and Update5 months ago in Personal More Like This

Her incredible skills with skin textures and atmosphere are amazing! I love her OCs and the ideas behind them...especially Sol (picture above).
She is not only a very kind, helpful and warm-hearted person, she is a very creative and productive artist too! I love her "art-nouveau" inspired works!
Her style is just great! Every face she draws has a very strong expression, and her feeling for shading is outstanding!
