((A Journal For All Of You.....))((As of late, I've been having a bit of an art block and until recently.... I started questioning myself as an artist. I began to wonder if anything I've ever drawn was ever good enough. If I really have improved any of my skill and mostly: if drawing was just a waste of my time and whether or not I should give it up.((A Journal For All Of You.....))3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And its in those moments, when those thoughts seem to fill my mind, when I begin to feel stressed and angry and mopey, I grab my tablet and just doodle. I doodle away to distract myself and I've found that most of the time, I always draw up Gordie. My silly little pumpkin prince. He's always smiling, always such a dork and I wondered why I always drew him. I hardly draw Lily, nor have I ever drawn Hubbard. No. It was always Gordie. And after tonight, I came to understand why. Its no question that our OC's, every single one we've ever made, is really just a small part of ourselves. And my Gordie..... I found that he's the confidence that I can never seem to obtain. I feel

Judging will commence presently, and objectively. Everyone has a fair chance of winning.Storm Kingdom Citizen Contest: Bird Edition CLOSED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Against my better judgement I am going to be holding another Citizen Contest, this time for just bird people.
Thats right, Only birds!
I made a little guide for you guys to reference right here
This isn't to say its a strict guide for body shapes. Bird people come in all shapes and sizes, so don't be afraid to surprise me. Maybe the humanoids have more feathers in other places than just their heads? Maybe they have beaks or scaly hands? Get creative with that.
Bird people: fun fact, Most of the bird species in TB's kingdoms are Corvids (if you don't know what a corvid is you should look it up there are alot of different species and augh I love them so much ;u; ). The other types of birds are raptors, Eagles,

UPDATE: Conifer Citizen ContestTHE CONTEST HAS BEEN EXTENDEDUPDATE: Conifer Citizen Contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So ever since I've uploaded the Conifer Person species info sheet and some prior to its uploading, people have wanted to make their own Conifer People. The first thing that came to mind was Contest Time~! So here we go~ The Conifer Citizen Contest! So now let's get started.
First off you all must know what a Conifer is. The conifers, division Pinophyta, also known as division Coniferophyta or Coniferae, are one of 13 or 14 division level taxa within the Kingdom Plantae. Pinophytes are gymnosperms. They are cone-bearing seed plants with vascular tissue; all extant conifers are woody plants, the great majority being trees with just a few being shrubs. Typical examples of conifers include cedars, Douglas-firs, cypresses, firs, junipers, kauri, larches, pines, hemlocks, redwoods, spruces, and yews. The division contains approximately eight families, 68 genera, and 630 living species. Although the total number of species is relatively sm

((Contest-o!))((Alright, now, for a long while I've been thinking of this. There are so many types of rejects that live in Silver Hill, I can't even design them all! So, I thought, why not hold a contest to see who can create the most unique reject?((Contest-o!))3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So! That's why you're here!
Rules + Info:
Every citizen swears an oath upon entering that they keep Silver Hill's location secret. Your OC must comply with this rule, or be very good at hiding the fact that they're actually a spy.
Your OC can be from any kingdom, but if it's from someone else's kingdom, please ask permission form the creator.
Remember, these are rejects, so there must be a reason why your OC feels rejected. Lonely? Bullied? Banished? The more creative, the better!
Now, I've seen a lot of humanoid OCs around here lately, but try not to limit yourself with that! I know I'm not one to talk, especially with Jesse, but I'm trying to lean away from that. However, this

Contest anyone?( Because :iconaskprincehoneybee: Inspired me to do one dun judge me. )Contest anyone?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So lately Ive been kind of curious to draw out some citizens to Rico's Kingdom.
Frozen Kingdom of course. Reason being that everyone keeps asking me to see his Kingdom more and the people in it.
Also Ive been kind of curious as to the creatures that may lurk around his Frozen Kingdom as well that would live under such cold climates.
So I got to thinking after :iconprincehoneybee: had made her contest, and I thought that maybe I might make my own little contest as well. She helped me think of the idea of course.
So here is pretty much the point of this contest. I want you to draw your own race or creature that can live under cold climates in the Frozen Kingdom.
You can even give them a specific job in it, like say a Frozen guard.
If your going to make castle workers though, please tell me first and what they are.
THIS IS IMPORTANT.PLEASE REMEMBER.
* Not everyone in the Frozen Kingdom is an Ice cream person ok?

Im giving one last addition day for late enteries after that its closed!
Okay for a while i have been wanting to make a species contest after the success with the Ginger Bread citizen contest i had a while back. I have been very weary of which species i will allow to be open to the public do to fear of one simple fact. MISREAD INFORMATION I really don't like it when original concepts are not kept to the description of the creator. So i have been scared to reopen because i have seen watcher make just for that sake and never use the Oc ever again. I would prefer if you at least try to develop this character to make that way it shall open door to interactions and who knows maybe i will create a huge collab in the future, or guess star u in questions. Basically if your never gonna use the Character do not make one.
Fair enough? Good UvU

Uhm... well, first of all, to those who have been the victim. I really feel sorry for you. I know it hurts, and it takes time to grow an outer shell so things like this don't hurt you, and some of you already have. That's fine, but sometimes with things like this, no matter how much they hurt, you need to look into it a little. They might be right, obviously not in the way the addressed the problem, but I think it would be a good way to find out how your OC can improve. I know they were hurtful, but you can turn what they did into something good by using it to improve yourselves.
Secondly, to those who have burned someone. I can understand how you might feel if you were hurt by an admin, but if their character did something to your's, that's nothing to get mad at the admin about. They created their character to behave that way, and i
