Time for another contest, everyone!
You know, Vic has played some really fantastic characters who have many fantastic things happen to them. I imagine it must get pretty tiresome, no matter how much fun we have watching them. Sometimes, you need to take a break, and what better way than to curl up in the corner with a good book?
Well, it's time to make it happen.

Hey all you Rangers, time for another Contest. ^^
Some of you members who've been around for a while might remember the first contest we ever had. It was a contest to create a Logo here for the DeviantART Rangers.
You can still see the winner if you press my admin user and return to the original page, our Admin Kristy was the first ever to win a contest here at the DA Rangers.
We thought it'd be fun to re-visit that contest after the years. (Wow, now I feel old. lol) I hope you all have fun. It'd be wonderful if a lot of you Rangers contributed to this, c

- What is Pixel Art? (Pixel Art vs Oekaki Pixel) http://thepixelpalace.deviantart.com/journal/IJ-What-is-Pixel-Art-Pixel-Art-vs-Oekaki-Pixel-329915477
This Information Journal is a brief, short address to the subject stated in the title. Please make sure you make full use of the helpful journals and tutorials mentioned within the journal!
So we know what pixel art is. Great. But now how do you shade pixel art exactly? Can you just swipe your pencil tool over the image like you do with a brush tool in order to create shadows?
As we recall, real pixel art involves the careful and thoughtful placement of most, if not all, of the pixels in the image. So we need to know the correct way to add shadows and highlights to our pixel masterpieces, yes? Well here is one way to shade pixel art:
Dithering is when you pixel two or more colors in a pattern to give them a blended look. You can dither with any two colors and it will
Rat Anatomy Compilation.Rats are very fascinating little creatures. They have small hands like humans, minus the thumbs. They are intelligent and social, and each rat has a unique personality. They can also easily stand on their hind legs, making them an easy transition to an anthropomorphic form for stories and art.Rat Anatomy Compilation.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, though, they are damn difficult to draw, and there are precious few resources for those wishing to delve into their anatomical structure (certainly me included). So I will be collecting references, both photos and drawings, that I think might be helpful to someone looking to draw my charming friend Rattus norvegicus (and perhaps some of his closest family members). I will probably add to this from time to time as I find new resources, so please feel free to suggest things that you think might be useful!

POKEMON STRIKES BACK MONTHYo what's up guys. Its me Super Saiyan Senpai Sweet and Sour Pork with Ryce again. Disney Month is over and done with, and now we are onto a new month theme! To celebrate my addiction to Pokemon, I have decided to do yet another Pokemon month! Can you believe its been 2 years since the first Pokemon month? LONG TIME! But this time I am doing things a little bit different, I am gonna focus on the characters of the games, in their RPG chibi version. You will see, it would be really cute! And yes I will just submit my Pokemon stuff to the Pokemon Month folder in the gallery. Ummm what else? Nope thats about it! I will begin the month with a gift for my biggest fan (She calls herself that, I call her a friend ok?). Thank you for the support! I will continue to work hard to entertain.POKEMON STRIKES BACK MONTH3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Continue? 10...9...8...Ever heard of the saying 'life is a game'? I think there's more wisdom and truth to that statement than what it implies. Like the beginning of most games, you start of with minimal information of your story, you have basic skills and experience and you're given a handful of 'extra lives'. Similar to RPG's your story is shaped through your decisions during the game, will you choose to be the warrior or mage? Hero or villian? How will gain your EXP and how you improve your character's skills?Continue? 10...9...8...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As we journey through our RPG, we gain levels and with it, our character grows. Becoming stronger, more intelligent, more able. And bit by bit, we find out a little more about who we are, our story and our purpose.
Like any game, we also have to face our rivals, our 'bosses'. They don't need to take the form of a person per se, your boss can be anything, a phobia, obstacle, challenge. Sometimes we lose against our bosses and expend an extra life to have another shot at our story. What did we do wron
ZERO!! It's At ZERO!!So an amazing thing happened this evening!!ZERO!! It's At ZERO!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was on deviantART just about the ENTIRE day. I was responding to my overload of messages that I seem to have a constant ever flowing mass of. (Sorry for not posting anything for a while though, I've had so many papers due.) And then suddenly, the messages in my inbox slowly began to decimate. I refreshed the page and finally!! I got down to the DOUBLE DIGITS!! So I kept on going, responding to messages, leaving others, deleting activity messages, looking at group messages and updates, and then I refreshed again. I WAS IN THE SINGLE DIGITS!! Down to my last few messages, I replied and commented and read journals. Then I refreshed.
And to mine eyes lighted by the glow of my laptop screen, I saw it. ZERO MESSAGES. *le gasp*
I hadn't seen such a thing in a long time. I almost forgot it existed. But there is was: ZERO. That little "0" at the top of my screen. It was so... strange, out-of-place, and an oddity in my life on dA. But it was there.
''Sequential Art'' CompetitionMy webcomic, Sequential Art, is 10 years old. I started it back in June 2005.''Sequential Art'' Competition6 months ago in Personal More Like This
As a little celebration, I thought I’d run a contest (something I’d actually been meaning to do for a while).
It’s fairly straightforward. There will be two top prizes, each awarded to the best of the following: The best image (best art wins. Simple) and the funniest image (Art quality isn’t as important as the idea behind it).
To be in with a chance of winning, all you need do is draw something related to the Sequential Art webcomic. It could be a single character, multiple characters, your own strip, anything. Draw it and post a link to it in the comments section of this journal.
First prize for each of the two categories is:
A copy of Sequential Art Volume 4
A print of the 10 year image (seen below)
A free commission (colour. Single character)
There will also be 10 runners up (total), each of whom will
Cyanide and Happiness ShowOur animated show has been waiting to be made a long time. After the 3 year bout with television networks, we've chosen to make content straight to you, the attractive viewer (that's you) (unless you're not reading this)Cyanide and Happiness Show3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a big god damn deal to us, and I hope you guys want to see the final product as badly as we want to make it. Seriously, we have years of animation we've been wanting to throw out for you to ocularly digest, and we would rather give straight to your face instead of going through TV where it will get COVERED in preservatives and insecticides.
My analogy has wandered from me, but please check out our kickstarter and what could potentially be the best thing ever to happen to mankind. Potentially.
MLP Resource: Pony Plushie Shopping ListHi everyone! As the winner of my poll, I've decided to make a journal consisting of a plushie shopping list!MLP Resource: Pony Plushie Shopping List3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I've tried to include the average prices for everything, but keep in mind that prices will vary, especially with fabric because it depends on how many yards you get! But I've tried to give you just a general idea...
Also, you'll notice that there are multiple sections for putting the eyes and cutie marks on the pony. You only need to choose one section (hand embroidery, machine embroidery, or applique) depending on your personal preference.
Rotary Cutter $11.00
Cutting Mat $13.00
Sewing Machine $100.00
Fabric Markers (assorted color pack) $6.50
Hand Sewing Needles $2.00
Note: I like to have an assortment of fabric marker colors because I use different color fabric, and some markers don't show up on particular fabric colors. My general rule is, use the lightest fab
Explanation [Edit]I guess I owe you guys an explanation.Explanation [Edit]4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm talking about the 'FAITH: If there was a possibility for FAITH to get printed as a fancomic [with permission of Nintendo ONLY, of course]...'-Poll. I'm trying my best to explain it with my worse English. I won't be mad if you won't understand me completely. I'm sorry for this.
It's true I'm thinking of making a fancomic out of FAITH and a friend of me and I are working on the "copyright" already. Many people asked me how I'll be able to come to the "copyright". Of course, it is not possible to get the whole and true "copyright", but that isn't necessary. All I need is an agreement, better said, an official permission of Nintendo to print the comic officially.
How does that work and how can this become possible?
I'm able to get the permission when I agree to put advertisment for different Nintendo-products (video-ga

Just few days ago I announced the voice acting casting and now, when it's over, I must say, I'M OVERWHELMED with the amount of help and submissions to the animation project! ;A; Overall, I've got over 250 submissions that I'm still checking out (so I'm sorry If I my replies are a little delayed..But I'm just a person, not a company X'D). Regarding to the fact that I've got so many submissions and the choice of the actors is constantly getting harder for me (some of them were so great I've been nearly spasming due to the excitement), I've decided that I'll announce the cast on Monday 21th Thank You once again for all Your concern and interest in the casting and project overall, I promise to submit more works in progress from the project as soon as we have something new

Random facts and words of wisdomThe following are random facts and words of wisdom that I have come across or have been told to me at some point. Some of them are interesting but are just random things I'm sharing because.Random facts and words of wisdom2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1.) An Orange is actually a type of berry not a fruit like how an apple is.
2.) Ants can survive underwater for 14 days.
3.) Dolphins can have the intelligence of a human 6 year old.
4.) Starving yourself can cause you to gain weight.
5.) You are more susceptible to an ear infection if you have a respiratory infection.
6.) You don't need milk to survive, humans are the only creature on the planet that drinks milk after infancy. Dark green, leafy vegetables render 4X more calcium then milk.
7.) The rays of the sun give you Vitamin D and also improve your mood.
8.) It has been proven that students who take an art class of some kind (band, choir, art, drama, etc.) have higher thinking ability then students who don't.
9.) If you have to ask yourself if it's a good idea, it's a bad idea.
The 14 mindsets of NebulaHello everyone, today I am going to go a little in-depth about the characters belonging to my model set named Code:NEBULA. I'm going to explain to you in order the reasoning behind these interesting cyber characters, how they came to be, and how they pertain to myself AnimeNebula003.The 14 mindsets of Nebula2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To all of you they are just characters or models but in all actuality they all represent a different side of me. No I do not have slit personalities though I'm sure some of you would have loved that one, they are mindsets that I gave a form. For anyone who has ever held a conversation with me chances will be that after reading this article you will be able to recall when I've had an attitude like these characters and maybe this will also help you to know me a bit better. These will be given to you in chronological order to when they were actually made.
Enjoy the ride and see if you can relate to any of them.
