The moon Dancer species is an OS
This was inspired by the movie Frozen!
"Come on Dream! Faster!" you shout to your Moon Dancer. (Bio here- http://melodymalone123.deviantart.com/art/Moon-Dancer-OS-from-HTTYD-465987176 )
You are running- no, flying away from your village that despised your dragon with all their life, so you took Dream and left.
As you fly, you see Dream start to get tired, you had been flying for four days, no stops, (when she got hungry you would throw a fish in front of her for her to catch) so you whisper to your dragon, "Land on the next uninhabited island you find that can support life."
She immediately flies down and lands on a smallish island.
You jump of and give her a large fish and bite into an apple.
Dream curls into a ball and closes her eyes, and you blow your h/c bangs out of your face.
You walk over to a nearby pond an

Your sigh echoes around the clearing your in, and the snow stops falling, but the temperature stays at a freezing level.
Dream shakes the snow off of her, covering you in the fluffy white powder.
"*Dream!" you complain, and she grins, showing her pearly whites.
"*Now, y/n... Don't act irrationally," she warns, backing away slowly when you scoop up a ball of snow.
You pull your arm back and fling the ball. It hits Dream's snout with a soft 'SPLAT'.
Dream roars playfully and scoops up a bunch of snow into her tail.
"*I really hate you sometimes," you deadpan.

"C'mon bud, faster!" I shout to Toothless.
He grunts in response and flaps his wings harder. I laugh victoriously as we pull in front of Astrid.

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

What Sherlock Holmes knows and not knowsHello,What Sherlock Holmes knows and not knows9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am currently reading the "New Annotated Sherlock Holmes" by L. Klinger* and find many of the annotations quite amusing and share-worthy... so... allow me to share some of the notes with you.
Hopefully this will be something new to you. I know it was to me and I already "pride" myself with having read the entire canon more than once. But the canon is so "large" that it is very, very easy to forget the little details. By the end of the entire collection we may have formed an image of Holmes and Watson in our heads but I am sure that we have also forgotten half of the little details that ultimately shaped that image to what it is.
And there certainly are many little details that we couldn't make sense of and have been plainly ignored. xD
So, the following I thought was very interesting, because the little details appear to cause me to change what I thought of Holmes. Please do let me know what YOU think of it!
I am pretty much just copying what is wri

Your breathing is ragged and you hear heavy footfalls from behind you, tears rush down your s/c cheeks and sweat runs down your legs.
"JUST LEAVE ME ALONE!" you scream over your shoulder, but the tall and thin hooded man ignores you and keeps up the chase.
Suddenly, you stumble over a fallen log and land heavily on your ankle, you reach to pull off your glove, but the man pins you down.
"I've waited so. Long. For. This..." he murmurs, hot breath spraying on your face.
He pulls off his hood to reveal the last person you ever wanted to see.
Dark orange hair, blue left eye and green right eye, pointed noise and horrible smile.
"Jim the Soulless," you spit, venom dripping from your words, "You sly-"
He clamps his hand over your mouth and laughs, "Shut up! Your mine, you always knew it, yet you tried to resist me, babe."
You struggle and feel your eyes burn, making you shut them and bit

The Backstory of Kozmotis Pitchiner (Pitch)Deep inside the clock, Ombric was somersaulting through time at a furious pace. The world around him flickered from day to night faster than the blink of an eye. He saw seasons pass in seconds. Centuries flew by as he drifted up and away from the Lamadary.He looked skyward as the sun and stars spiraled past him at rocket speed. Day. Night. Day. Night. Faster than could be said and in reverse. The Moon was there too, and in a flash he saw the explosion of Pitch's galleon and the last great battle of the Golden Age. But it all happened too fast. The relics fell from the Moon too quickly for him to track them.The Backstory of Kozmotis Pitchiner (Pitch)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ombric wasn't worried. He would slow down his trajectory on the return trip and take note of their whereabouts. And if his plan worked, he wouldn't need to.
He began to drift away from Earth, going deeper and deeper into the vast dazzlements of space. He was traveling so swiftly through time that comets, planets, and galaxies pivoted and sparkled around him like fireworks, but their

A wise man by the name of John Rambo once told us that we should 'Stay ballsy'. We should not let our fear overtake us, we should dive head in into obstacles and fight the demons without fear and without worries. Well I have taken that approach and incorporated it into my drawing, believe it or not I have never been confident about my artworks, even if it is something I spent 24 hours on I still have doubt whether its good enough to show or not, especially when it is for work and I know I am being judged on.. thats why it always takes so long for me to finish an art piece because I keep looking at it and try to fix stuff that probably no one would ever notic

Dream begins growling, and you sit up.
"*What's up girl?" you ask, voice tinged with worry.
Dream roars and growls out, "*Night Fury! Get down y/n!"
You gasp and dive behind a boulder just as a black dragon swoops in, with a figure on his back.
You peek out cautiously, and see a tall figure with a peg leg and brown hair, then you hear him muttering something about unseasonable snow.
He turns around and sees Dream in a defensive stance in front of your rock, he walks forward and you study his face.
He has green eyes, a handsome face and his brown hair flops around.
He reaches forwards and causes Dream to growl. You mimick her and he walks around Dream, coming closer to your hiding place.
Your breath hitches in your throat and you pull back. But you hear his peg leg coming closer.
When he gets to close for your liking, you jump up and back flip over the rock, pinning him to the ground.
His eyes widen and you growl out, "Who the hell are you!?"

The diadem was moulded over a white domino mask to begin with in layers about 1/16-1/8th inch thick. Each layer was smoothed while still wet and let to cure. The base was then cut with an Exacto knife off of the plastic mask, the epoxy fused with the plastic of the mask so it was then one piece.
Each layer was then sanded with a coarse grit emery cloth or a medium grit sand paper depending on the need. As it was built up the details and shapes were more defined and due to the texture of the clay a lot of the details were sanded and scraped with ceramic tools and various Exacto and straight razor blades. Toward the end the details were being built up in quarter to pea sized bits of the clay. Once cured it was all scrapped down, basically a tedious carving to make sure everything was as symmetrical as I
So apparently Benedict and Martin know..."Watson's right. Nobody cares what he says the internet has already decided. In fact, from the minute Sherlock appeared, the instant audience conclusion was that Holmes and Watson were lovers. Cumberbatch and Freeman have been dealing with the fallout ever since, in part with good humour, in part with mild exasperation. "Much as Sherlock adores John, and he's fond of him, there's no love, there's nothing sexual all the jokes aside," Cumberbatch says. "The problem is, they [the jokes in the script] fuel the fantasy of the few into flames for the many. People presume that's what it is, but it's not."So apparently Benedict and Martin know...3 years ago in Personal More Like This

As you fly away from the village you feel tears rush down your s/c cheeks.
When you're far enough away, you let out a loud angered scream.
"WHY DID I LET THEM IN!? WHY DID I FALL FOR IT!?"
You fly onto a ledge and collapse, letting out sobbing wails and curling into a small ball.
A loud roar comes from behind you, and you look over to see a Deadly Nadder growling.
"*Who are you? What are you doing here? Why have you got wings!?" it spits angrily.
You stand up and scream back, "*SHUT YOUR TRAP! I AM Y/N, I AM CRYING, AND I HAVE WINGS BECAUSE I'M A MONSTER!!!"
It backs away and after you give a warning growl it flies away.
You sigh and begin singing quietly. (I made up the song! There is no link for the tune, so you can make it up, but steal the lyrics, I will find and kill you.)
On the mountains cold,
Is a dark secret,
Waiting for the fold...

Copying is NOT stealing......as long as you are fair and credit the original artist!!Copying is NOT stealing...2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Every artist once was a beginner, never forget it!
And most artists started with copying: from their favorite Mangakas or artists.
I think copying is one of the best ways to learn and to get a feeling for a certain style, because you observe and you reproduce it.
I recently saw someone who copies drawings from other dA artists. Copying itself not stealing. It's not the same like downloading and re-submitting under their names. No, it's drawn by them.
But when I told that person to credit the original artist, he or she just hid my comment.
That's coward, really. There's nothing wrong about copying, but it's wrong to deny it and to claim it as your own work. Then it's plagiarism and that's stealing! And even worse: making profit with it!
I think if you want to learn by copying, do it in your sketchbooks privately. But if you want to upload it, ask the original artists before if possible and credit them and link to the orig
How to feel good about your ArtWe've all had those moments as an artist where we just can't seem to like what we're doing, where nothing seems sufficient and everybody else seems to draw so much better than ourselves.There's a few simple things you can do to avoid feeling like that or that you can remind yourself of should you already be right in the middle of this mess.How to feel good about your Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Draw for yourself, not an audience!
The first and probably most important point, especially for any artist on here who in one way or the other seeks feedback and recognition from their fellow deviants. You should never forget that your art is after all YOUR art, so it should be a means to express yourself, relax yourself, be proud of yourself etc and not anyone else. Never let yourself be pressured to do anything you don't want simply because your watchers might demand it or do anything for the sole purpose of getting more attention. It might make you happy in the beginning but loosing track

He's cussing like a wild idiot and kicking crazily as we drag him away. We prop him up in a corner and hail a taxi.
Everyone leaves except me. I run back over to George. The first time I saw him hurt in the hospital, his eyes were open and I knew he was okay. I mean, not fully, but I mean George was still George.
But now, the life is drained from his face. But you barely notice it behind all the blood gushing from his face. I don't even think I can describe it without breaking down.
Some kind fellow comes up to me.
"You want me to call an ambulance or cab or something?" He asks. I think it over a bit.
"Cab." I reply. The kind fellow gets one for me and helps me get George in the car. I thank the man and tell the cab driver where to go
