Thanks everyone who participated~
This contest's theme is: POKEMON!
Do not include humans of any sort. The subject are Pokemon, not trainers or other humans in the Pokemon universe.
(Note: No humans means no humans of any sort. Examples: Pokemon who are canonically humanoid like most fighting types are fine, but no humans dressing as pokemon or pokemon turned into humans or any other sort of hybrid. This also means that trainers can only be referenced in a story if your entry is a written story. DO NOT HAVE ANY HUMANS AS A CENTRAL ROLE. ONLY HAVE THEM MENTIONED IF YOU NEED TO.)

As of now, my brain is too fried to write up a proper journal entry about our volcano GARventure, and one of my usual event reports (as you can see on the right side of my journal) about Cosplay Mania, but I'd like to take this chance to share a part of our lecture of sorts at the Cosmania cosplay workshop last Sunday.
China snowpeachdrop, Kat moonlightflight, El rosiael and I were invited to talk about general cosplay planning, like fabric selection, wig styling, cosplay makeup and photography. My friends might post the other parts, but for now here is our silly guide about posing for cosplay photos, and convention etiquette. The actual presentation was actually longer, and with lots more examples, but here is a condensed rundown of what we talked about, fo

This is PayPal and points commissions. I accept both. The points price is little higher because DA charge me for fee when I convert the points to money.
I will start the commission after I get paid.
Please be patient with the commission. I'll start it right after I get paid. But remember, There might be someone who was before you.
Time spent on each commission is very varies if you ask for different details and if I have other things to do.
For each extra character, that would be half of the price more(for example: your order cost you $6 with one chibi, 2 chib
Taxidermy is not ArtFor those of you who are dead set on believing that Taxidermy is not art, let me make this easy for you to understand.Taxidermy is not Art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
By definition, taxidermy IS an art form.
the art of preparing, stuffing, and mounting the skins of animals with lifelike effect.
early 19th century: from Greek taxis ‘arrangement’ + derma ‘skin.’
A taxidermist must be skilled in sculpting, sewing, woodworking, designing, and must be knowledgeable in animal anatomy and behavior. The 'dead animal' part is just the dirty work before the real art can begin. Every piece of art starts out ugly before it can become a masterpiece.
The listed skills are considered some sort of art form, right? Well by saying taxidermy isn't art, you're saying those skills are not considered art. Therefore by YOUR definition, 'art' does not exist in any medium, and this site should not even exist.
dA Taxidermy Community is in the shitter. Why?I'm finally going to rant about thisdA Taxidermy Community is in the shitter. Why?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There has recently been a new wave of people who think taxidermy is all about soft mounting, and otherwise have no goddamn idea about it. Yeah yeah, I know a bunch of you do soft mounting because you enjoy it, but before you hop on my ass hear me out. First, :iconHellBoundPromises: warned me a shitstorm was imminent. She told me a certain rather popular person had come to Deviantart wanting to try taxidermy. This person brought with them a bunch of fans who waited eagerly for his/her work. But now instead of having people who are eager to learn from the vets on here, and other proper sources like taxi.net, these people have turned what we love into a fucking joke and made dA even less serious than it was before.

Working with Archie, etcHey all,Working with Archie, etc6 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get lots of questions, or I should say I get the same question a lot, about how to get in with Archie comics and what its like to work with them. I can't answer this question every time I get it, so I've cut and pasted my answers from bumbleking.com and now anyone who can stand to read through all of the stuff below can find out as much as I can remember or am willing to try and relay about how I got into comics. Let me give you the short version here first:
1. If you want to do comics, then PRACTICE DRAWING EVERYTHING, DO NOT STICK WITH JUST PINUPS AND DO SEQUENTIAL PAGES!!!! I cannot overemphasize that.
2. Do your own self published comics and try to sell them at conventions and on the internet. YOU MUST have some kind of internet outlet to show your work. But that's why we're all here.
3. My position as a freelancer with Archie Comics is a rare case of steady work in the comics industry. DO NOT plan to make a fortune doing comics and DO NOT plan to even make a living doin

Hello everyone, I got a new project for myself.
To draw all those unused kitties (or at least how many I can tolerate...)
I was inspired by all those awesome cats that have ceased to be drawn after their owner has lost interest. But I want those cats to be known again, to be in the spotlight.
So if anyone can tell me about any unused kitties, I would be grateful c:
Please send me a reference too~
To avoid confusion I mean cats with no ref or that haven't been drawn in over 5 months.
Please alert me if any of these cats ARE used regularly.

I will have to completely reorganise my breakfast schedule because of some overzealous admin. Usually I wake up, prepare nomnoms, settle in front of the computer and search for some morning drama. butthurtbrigade was one of my favourite places to acquire my morning dose of concentrated baawws. Now when it is gone I will be forced to actively search for the dramas elsewhere and I don't like that.
My breakfast should look like this:

INTRO TO CROCHETINTRO TO CROCHETINTRO TO CROCHET1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Materials you need, techniques to hold and use the crochet hook and main stitches you must know, all in one article for you to start crocheting right now!
Why crochet is that easy?
Unlike knitting, crochet uses just one tool (a single hook) rather than two (a pair of needles) and you work one yarn loop at a time; these two factors are enough to make it less complicated.
Do you want another reason to choose crochet?
Well, another advantage is that it’s easier to drop your project and pick it up again without losing your work; The stitches won’t slide off just like with the needles, therefore there’s no chance of a line of stitches unraveling before your eyes!
Crochet projects develop more quickly (this is ideal for beginners and impatient people)
What do you need to start?
You won't need many materials to get started. The basics you'll need consist of a croch
