OC Interaction Con! *DONE*The contest is done and I will be deciding the winners sometime this weekend. Thank you ALL who participated. I will put you all in a raffle and have Brai draw a name. Whoever is picked gets a Full body, Cell shaded picture of ONE character. ^^ i'm sorry..I just like raffles. ;w; HOWEVER you must provide me with a fullbody drawing (I draw what I SEE) and must have the flat colors provided..even if they are just little circles off to the side and are labeled.OC Interaction Con! *DONE*1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am a bit disappointed with how this contest turned out. I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE the pictures that I did get, though! But as I was deleting people from the list..I counted almost 15 and the 10 who told me in notes. So that's 25 people who didn't take part due to being busy (OMG..I am so sorry.. ;n; ) or just didn't feel like it. I was hoping since it involved your own OCs it would give more incentive, but I guess I was wrong. This was also judging whether or not I should host any upcoming contests. Anyway, I LOVE the pictures you
Some thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.I commission art a lot. I've commissioned from many different artists all over the world. And after several years here are a few on my own personal thoughts on commissionsSome thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. List you prices.
- Whether its flat rates or by the hour, artists that commissions should list their rates. Most the time the old saying "If you have to ask, it probably costs to much." really comes into play here. I'm so much more likely to commission someone where I can gauge my budget. I myself am a single income family of five. That means I have a budget. A budget means I shop around. So that means when I am comparing artists if I know what I can spend with one and not the other, I'm more likely to go with the one I know I can budget.
2. List your customers.
- It is so much easier for a person to know where they stand when you have them listed.
2½. Update your customers.
- Most artists have an idea how long something is going to take. Now it's understandable that the idea isn't always acc

Manga Studio BasicsSo I've been asked what software I use to make my creator owned comic: Shadows of Oblivion. The short answer is Manga Studio EX. (the long answer is a lecture on how software doesn't make comics any more than a paintbrush makes a painting.... but I'll save you the speech.)Manga Studio Basics2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Manga Studio is a great piece of drawing software that takes into account everything a comic artist would need. Rulers, pens, pencils, markers, and brushes of all shapes and sizes. Nearly everything you'd need in traditional media to create comics is here in its virtual for you. Even my personal favorite, Blue lines! But some of you who may use photoshop may get confused. Some of the tools are similar, but not the same, it's a different interface by a different company, so things will be different.
So I thought for today's tutorial tuesday I'd show you two of the tools I us

Drawing lessonsAnytime someone asks me for resources and lessons on drawing well I always tell them to learn the fundamentals and draw from real life. Few people take me at my word and go looking for that.Drawing lessons3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well Dan Norton, :icondingo107: , the guy who brought us the new Thundercats gave us DA users an AWESOME chance to look at how the fundamentals work using DA's Muro App (which I gotta say is brilliant).
So take a look at this and you'll get a great jumping off point on how to draw well and draw properly.
Wanna kill yourself?Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this. You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time. A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up." Your dad runs to your room. He looks at yoWanna kill yourself?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
No Excuses: I have artist's/Writer's blockFirst of all... What the crap is artist or writer's block? I mean, I understand what it is, but how do you get it? How do you run out of things to say, or draw?No Excuses: I have artist's/Writer's block2 years ago in Personal More Like This
From now on, I'm going to refer to this as artist's block as most of the excuses I hear are about art. But they apply to writer's block as well. (i just don't want to keep writing "Artists or writer's block")
So let me get this straight you want to draw something, but you don't know what to draw, so you're going to just draw nothing.... That makes no sense. It's like saying "I'm really hungry, but i don't know what I want to eat, so I'm just not going to eat anything." That doesn't happen. What happens is you say "I'm really hungry, I don't know what I want to eat, so I'll eat anything I can find." And that's how you have to approach your drawing.
If you want to draw, but you don't know what you want to draw, then draw ANYTHING. It doesn't matter what, just anything you can find. I know exactly what your thinking right n

Hey guys! I've been seeing a lot of point giveaways on deviantART, and so I thought I might do my own. This is apart of my 'Giving Back' campaign that I am trying to launch on my profile.
Anyway, I love deviantART's point system for a number of reasons.
One of my favorite aspects of this system is that it encourages young artists to become entrepreneurs. Younger artists who may not be able to set up a paypal account or deal with other forms of online payment just yet, can take safety in the dA points system. They can learn how to price their work, deal with clients, a

That's being a troll, if you're just gonna post negative stuff.Amy Rose Love Poem3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let it be heard on this faithful day...
That I cast my shame away-
In this moment, this final hour-
I announce my love to my one and only flower-
A ray like no other rests over pine eyes,
To hide my infatuation with sour lies,
In truth I'm nothing but a fool-
For not letting the idea or your heart set to rule.
You are truly my rose-
With your beauty I can't oppose.
Sonic is not your man-
He cannot treat you like I can.
He's not the one to kiss-
For it's your lips I would miss.
If you stay with me-
You will be happy as can be.
If you read this, I will be smiling with glee-
I love you, that is something you will see.
Twilight video + upholstery foam in Pinkie reviewFirst off, I finally finished editing one of the livestream videos! You can watch Winter Wrap Up Twilight being made(in fast motion) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYWHxudsAN8Twilight video + upholstery foam in Pinkie review2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, a giant Pinkie update!
Some people had suggested that I use foam in Pinkie for various reason, and I decided it would be worth a try. Here are my thoughts and results!
I used upholstery foam(or foam cushioning as some might know it) because it's thick, regains its shape even if it's crushed, and it's available at Wal Mart in large quantities ahah.
First off it was more expensive than I expected, but still not horrendously expensive. I bought a 48"x72" piece for $65. This is enough for one and a half ponie. Second, I really underestimated its weight. This stuff is HEAVY. I was hoping to reduce Pinkie's weight by using this foam, but that didn't happen.
Fitting it in the plush:
I measured and cut large strips of the foam and rolled them up so they would fit through the body. I didn't roll them supe
