So here goes. This is The Picture Book Project! We plan on taking these months to compile a book of pictures of you Rangers with birthday cards for Vic and send the huge old book to him for his birthday!!
The Book will have a few Rangers per page, with a little note from their Rangers about 300 words in length, the picture itself will be a picture of one of you guys/or a whole group of you guys if you have Ranger friends, holding a big Birthday Card in front for Vic that says “Happy Birthday Vic!” which you guys will custom make.

FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST LEGACY - VIC'S REACTION!!!Wow, Vic really loves us Rangers, that is a certainty. *Dies of pure joy*FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST LEGACY - VIC'S REACTION!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fullmetal Alchemist Legacy Volume 1, and Fullmetal Alchemist: Legacy -The Making Of- Art Book were presented to Vic this weekend at last, and as I promised I have his reactions recorded for you all to see.
For those of you who don't know, the DA Rangers put together a simply amazing comic book based after the events of Fullmetal Alchemist, it was all just a thought from Vic at a convention several months ago after he was asked what he would do if he were to continue the story. We created a 1st volume of the comic, which will continue until the story is complete, and a production art book, which is just filled with all the love that you guys put into the project.
Vic wanted me to personally say this to all of you, so here is his message:
"Please tell the DeviantART Rangers that I love and appreciate them. I am simply speechless."

We had a song contest way back when, and we thought we'd bring it back! We know there are a lot of musicians here at the Rangers, so we're going to give you guys the chance to write a song, and for those of you who want to, to perform it. We'll give you a long deadline for this contest so you all have time! Alright? Let's get started!
This is a Song writing contest, both for those who want to upload their written work and for those who want to sing/play their song.
You can submit 1 Entry per category! (If you would like to enter your song in the written category, and then also submit the same song performed, that is suitable.)

Secrets On How ToAlright I guess I'm gonna make another rant, and this one's been bugging me for the longest time. And I'm going to be as BLUNT as I will be and not sugar coat anything I'm about to say.Secrets On How To2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Often do I hear things like:
"what custom brushes do you use"
"how do you achieve this blur/ focus effect"
"how did you get the colors to go this way and that"
"what technique or computer program did you use"
What I rarely get asked for is:
"What did you study to be more efficient at drawing."
"What is an efficient way to study how to render certain types of materials"
"How do you practice proper lighting when painting?"
Guys I'm just gonna say it now, there's no shortcut to art. I work primarily in digital mediums now but I do have a solid foundation in traditional mediums. I didn't simply go out and buy a $400 tablet and instantly got to where I am today. I use custom brushes and special effects in my pieces, but they only take up less than 3% of the overall work. There's sti
Devious Journal EntryI just suffered shock at advice I saw being given to a convention goer of how to keep her energy levels up while at a convention...Devious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
- Hold soda in your mouth for a few seconds before swallowing it, as your mouth absorbs the sugars quicker
- Drink OJ with sugar added to it
- Honey sticks
Basically, the advice given was "SUGAR, AND LOTS OF IT!"
I don't know what people are taught about health in the USA, but clearly it's VERY different to the UK. People, PLEASE don't live on sugar at a convention! Not only is it bad for your teeth, but bad for your health, and it's NOT the best source of energy there is!
Eating regularly and healthily, especially wholemeals, will provide you with a much healthier and long-lasting source of energy. Sure, you may get a brief rush from a Red Bull, but you'll have a crash as well. I know none of us take the best care of ourselves at cons, but at least TRY to get in a decent breakfast, lunch and dinner. And drink plenty of water!!
And definitely don't ad

Trisha "Trish" Elric:
:iconFMABMH: - http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/5643/edwardsdaughterbyfmabmh.jpg
(She is the "Quick Silver Alchemist" but this plot does not establish that yet. It'll probably come in later.)
Trisha was born gifted with Alchemy but her brother was not, and for this she feels guilty. This complex of her brother's made Trisha want to compensate for it, so the two became close as a result of it. She is stubborn and has a fiery spirit. She can’t take criticism well and is easy to provoke. She tends to run into action without thinking of the consequences, but it's never out of selfishness.
Trisha is self-conscious because of Edward’s legacy and everything he accomplished and she has trouble living up to that. She's always concerned about fulfilling his expectations; Edward does not pressure her, but all the stories he told her through the years growing
