You require the following ingredients:

KINGDOM OF DAWN: CHAPTER 1Chap. 1: To Find A DragonKINGDOM OF DAWN: CHAPTER 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sehtmeht scratched his neck as his ears went flat against his head. His black robe flowed from behind him as he paced his tower floor. So many leads and all of them were dead ends. He needed to find them, and he needed to find them soon.
Umbra, his assistant, was laying down watching her master worry himself to a massive wreck. She lowered her head onto her paws and tucked her wings in close as she gave a sigh.
This was not the first time Sehtmeht tore himself apart over a legend, but this so-called legend was based more in fact than a fairy tale told to hatch-lings. This legend was centered on two very real dragons that disappeared after defeating a mighty enemy… and her master was close to finding one of them.
Sehtmeht stopped pacing and was now hovering over a table with various books, scrolls, and maps, his ears still flat against his head. Umbra walked over to him, her black body reflecting the glow from the light crystal that illuminated the room.

Comme on me l'a demandé plusieurs fois, je repousse d'une semaine la fin du concours. Mais ce sera la seule fois ! Alors profitez-en ^^ Vous avez jusqu'au 21/02 pour m'envoyer vos dessins !
Comme certains le savent peut-être, ma page facebook vient de passer les 1 000 fans. Pour fêter ça dignement, une loterie a été organisé sur cette dernière, et je tenais aussi à faire quelque chose sur Deviantart pour l'occasion. Cette fois, pas de loterie mais un concours de dessin ! Je crois qu'il est de notoriété publique que je suis une grande fan de Détective Conan, et j'aimerais profiter de ce concours pour faire connaître un peu mieux ce manga et pourquoi pas donner l'envie à certains de le lire !

I'm organising a drawing contest around the characters of my own book « The last wish ». To participate, you have to show a drawing, digital or traditional, in colors (Black&White drawings will be refused). You can make a chibi, a half-body, a portrait, the only rule is that it should be colored.
The theme is Lolly and sweets.
(The texture of her dress is here : https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=612635238747323&set=a.448755061802009.110509.448712225139626&type=1&theater )
Lolly was originally a doll, but took life when a special stone was put at the back of her neck. She doesn't share all our senses, so she's not able to taste the flavour of anything, which explains why she can't possibly know the flavour

Step by Step : My Pixel BasicsStep by Step : My Pixel Basics2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I've had people from time to time ask me how I pixel, and I've never really been sure how to explain. It hasn't been until the past few years that i've really thought too much about what I was doing beyond experimenting and learning new things. I think I've rounded out some basic guidelines I usually follow and a friend wanted some advice so I decided to attempt some sort of explanation
Below are some step by step images and commentary. Please note that there is no one right way to create a piece of art. This Step by Step is meant only to impart some understanding of how I do things . In Pixel art alone there are many many 'styles'. I encourage anyone reading to look up more than one tutorial and seek critique if trying to learn their own pixel style.
Please excuse any spelling mistakes, and take note that I use Photoshop 7.0, but the same principals sh
