My Iron Artist thread (ALL SLOTS FILLED!)You heard me right, everyone. This is not a joke, this is not a drill. 100 unique requests. 100 unique submissions. I am going to attempt the Iron Artist Challenge.My Iron Artist thread (ALL SLOTS FILLED!)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've found that I'm not as experienced as I want to be, nor am I drawing things with as much diversity as I would like. This is my boot camp. This is my proof to myself that I am truly serious about being an artist. And you all get to be on the ground floor.
HERE ARE THE GROUND RULES:
-The first rule is that I'm drawing 100 unique requests. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO MAKE MORE THAN ONE REQUEST UNLESS THE UNLIKELY EVENT OCCURS THAT ALL SLOTS AREN'T FILLED. (And let's face it, people like free stuff! ) You are allowed to CHANGE your request up until I begin to work on the request (I will have a separate journal saying my status).
-I AM NOT GIVING MYSELF A TIMEFRAME ON THIS. I don't know how quickly I can do this, so I'm not going to say when your drawing might or might not be finished.
-FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. Easy enough to
Pokemon 3900 VS Contest. 2500 Point Grand Prize.So it has been EVAR since I held a contest in honor of my beloved Pokemon 3900 idea. In the past I designed them in a way that introduced a new character to the story, complete with stats, background story and a personal revision. This contest will be slightly different, but just as fun.Pokemon 3900 VS Contest. 2500 Point Grand Prize.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So the point of this contest is to draw two or more characters fighting or having fought and lost to the other character or characters. You will have the choice of drawing two or more Pokemon 3900 characters fighting or one or more P39U OCs and one of your very own OCs fighting. So for example, Maxton VS one of your OCs is totally cool. Maxton and Karlo VS one or two of your OCs is twice as cool!!!!
DUE BY JULY 4th (extensions may occur)
Can NOT use bases.
Must be colored or shaded.
Can be 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, 2 vs 1 or 3 vs 1. That is a maximum of 4 characters.
Half of the characters used must be Pokemon 3900 characters.
: Bonus Points: (Will be applied to entries that follow these special r

Smoothing, Sanding, & Buffing Polymer ClaySmoothing, Sanding, and Buffing polymer clay is definately something that you don't hear a lot about in the younger polymer clay community, but it certainly does make your pieces look a lot better in the long run. If you smooth, sand, and buff your clay AND add a layer of varnish - watch out, your pieces will look as bright, beautiful and glossy as a piece of delicious candy.Smoothing, Sanding, & Buffing Polymer Clay6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Have you ever noticed that translucent clay really isn't THAT translucent? Well, if you smooth, sand, and buff it - you'll be seeing differently! It really DOES get see-through!
Give these tips a try, and although I can't guarantee that you will get it right the first time, practice makes perfect, and sometimes new techniques take a little getting used to before you find a way that works the best for you.
Smoothing your clay is what you do to your clay before you bake it. Running your fingers along the surface and smoothing out bumps and impurities can work wonders on a piece and give it a ve

Zaru here! Your resident bookworm and source for all odd jobs and classified ads! No need to pass notes in class and get caught; simply take your note, place it in the cover of your library book, and, once you check the book back in, I’ll read the note and send it to the appropriate people!
We got some good ones this week, and some boring ones.
Someone wants you to shove Matt into a locker. I know who it is, seeing as I saw them check their book in, but I think they’d prefer to stay anonymous. They’ll give you 10 Pokedollars for doing this, but I think 10 is far too much for such a simple task. It’s their money, though, I guess. He’s usually hanging around with his little sister Maple, but I don’t think she’ll make an effort to stop you. Don’t get caught by any of the teachers, or even worse, Sorbet!

Love your Bodyim serious manLove your Body2 years ago in Personal More Like This
im tired of having to feel like im put down because of my weight
and you know what?
im not even that bad, why should i even be worried about how i weigh
im just really sick of seeing stupid weight losing infomercials all the time
when i was younger, there wasnt a weight loss commercial in sight
i remember i got terribly depressed because of my weight, and those infomercials made things worse
then like this one day, when i finally met ticytocs and got to see her on webcam
she thought i was amazing in every way, that day she washed all my insecurities away, it just made me learn that no matter what my weight is, ill always be loved
no matter how much your weigh..or age for that matter
i will still love you ok?
you are beautiful/handsome just the way you are
and dont let people tell you otherwise
i know that may be hard to do, but seriously, the people that put you down are just challenges in a video game if i had to make a comparison example out of it

How long have you been sculpting?
I picked up some polymer clay and made my very first dragon in late 1998. *cringe* You can see some other hideously old dragons in my Scraps - it look a lot of practice to get to where I am today. Of course, I haven't been sculpting continuously in all that time. I took multi-year breaks in there, and it's only within the past year or so that I've really taken an interest in improving my craft. You know what they say - practice makes perfect! And while I'm far from perfect, the practicing does help.
What are your sculptures made of?
I use oven-bake polymer clay - it's colored clay that you can sculpt and then bake

I've compiled some questions and answers, and I apologize for the bluntness ahead of time.
The following are actual questions I've recieved in notes and comments, some reworded for sake of identity:
Is it for sale?
-The most commonly asked question, and no matter how many times I respond and type it into the description, NO. I'm sorry, my plushes are never for sale. I spend an ungodly amount of free time on them aside from what I do normally such as school and my normal artwork, I don't make these with the intention to sell. I put my time into them to enjoy them myself. Yeah sure, call me selfish, but DA isn't strictly a website for commissions. I put these up to show, not to advertise.

2) OCs are completely fine as long as the prompt is followed.
3) Mark ratings accordingly, please. I really shouldn't have to explain this
