SO anyway let's get this thing officially rolling! YEAH! Before work pulls me into the abyss again.
We're going to be working on silhouettes!

A silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single colour, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject.
"When an object's silhouette is difficult to make out, we have a tough time keeping track of what we're seeing. It's why so many comics and drawings use the visual shorthand out outlining figures and objects. The shades and values of an object are secondary to the basic shape when it comes to recognition. As such, effectively managing silhouettes is a vital tool for visual narratives." - Aaron Diaz

30 Day Fanart ChallengeSo this dA account is supposed to be my fanart account (Although for the most part it's just been my Despicable Me fanart account) but I always meant to do some fanart for other things I like too, so I'm creating this meme. It's basically for anyone who wants to do it, but I'm going to be doing it too.30 Day Fanart Challenge2 years ago in Personal More Like This
* Draw one piece of fanart every day. Can be as simple or as complicated as you like.
*Fanart can be of anything in books, movies, video games, manga, anime, television and comic books but each day has to be dedicated to something different, not the same book, movie, video game etc.
That's it, it's pretty open.
Miralce Of Sound - Sovngarde SongFrom the mists of the mountains a deafening callMiralce Of Sound - Sovngarde Song2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bellows down over the plains
On a host of battle-worn ears it does fall
Pushing out through the thunder and rain
These men of the north they have suffered too long
The anger it swells in their veins
Of the spirited roars of lost warriors' songs
Distant echoes are all that remain
And my voice is my violence
Clear the sky's frozen tears
And no more we'll be silent
With this Sovngarde song in our ears
And we stand tall
Sons of the snow
We will not fall
Under these blows
For our hearts they are hardy
Our spirits are strong
And our voices are lifted into
This Sovngarde song
Conquer the anger and ravenous rage!
Make it a part of your power
Pummeling down let your bloodlust engage!
Under your force they will cower
Feeling the fury so pure and so bright
Breaking the bonds of surrender
Under the moon for our home we will fight
And we will die to defend her
And my voice is my violence
Clear the sky's frozen tears
And no more we'll be silent
Final Fantasy VII Loveless ACT 1-5PrologueFinal Fantasy VII Loveless ACT 1-52 years ago in Personal More Like This
When the war of the beasts brings about the world's end
The goddess descends from the sky
Wings of light and dark spread afar
She guides us to bliss, her gift everlasting
Infinite in mystery is the gift of the goddess
We seek it thus, and take it to the sky
Ripples form on the water's surface
The wandering soul knows no rest
There is no hate, only joy
For you are beloved by the goddess
Hero of the dawn, Healer of worlds
Dreams of the morrow hath the shattered soul
Pride is lost
Wings stripped away, the end is nigh
My friend, do you fly away now?
To a world that abhors you and I?
All that awaits you is a somber morrow
No matter where the winds may blow
My friend, your desire
Is the bringer of life, the gift of the goddess
Even if the morrow is barren of promises
Nothing shall forestall my return
My friend, the fates are cruel
There are no dreams, no honour remains
The arrow has left the bow of the goddess
My soul, corrupted by vengeance
my mind changes too easily...So recently I came across :iconRouletteCityOCT: And I new: 4 months worth of preperation?

Holiday Card Project 2013Holiday Card Project 20131 month ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
