Line art, tracing and referencingI have been getting a few people asking to make Line-art out of my work or you know a trace of some artist piece so everyone can have a recolor of it.Line art, tracing and referencing2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some ask, some just go ahead and do it, I'm NOT OK with you tracing someones work line for line and posting as your own for others to recolor, its a little insulting to the artist even more so if it was a commission.
Using someones else art to make bases or adoptables, is wrong and ruins the artist's original vision. There are 100's of free bases out there and cheap ones, you shouldn't be tracing work without permission for adoptable and bases.
Its ok to trace someones art for learning purposes, but it should never be posted! its even ok to highly reference peoples work for learning purposes, but don't post it! or at lest ask the artist for permission first before doing so.
I made a chart below to show the differences, hope that clears up some confusion.

Design Contest! CLOSEDHello, everyone! >w< I have another contest for you! ^o^/Design Contest! CLOSED1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The contest is design-based, and the theme is Nature's Twins
What is 'Nature's Twins'?
It is a small series that I draw. It consists of a human and animal counterpart bearing similarity in designs/physical traits.
Here are some examples:
(These are merely examples, as mentioned below, you will be expected to design your own human/animal counterparts ^^ )
The goal is to design either a human or animal (or both, if you would like) as part of the Nature's Twins series.
For example, you can draw a person with a unique design and describe what kind of animal you had in mind in the artist's description, or vice versa. If you would like to do both the person and animal, that is more than welcomed!
Please take note that these designs are expected to be fullbody!
The deadline will be set at January 31st!

I'm sooo sorry for my absence, specially to those who had need of me. It wasn't intended to be that long, but it was necessary.I feel horribly guilty looking at the vicious numbers of my inbox, I ow thousands of apologies and far too many thank you's, I hope a superficial explanation can suffice.
It's hard to explain becausehonestlyIdontwantto but to put it in the simplest words: I was too naive handling something and I messed up. I wasn't as affected until 3 months later where I realized I was bound to spend more time with myself to understand, forgive and laugh at my mistake(s) so while going out to do that I ended up abandoning all social communities and getting them out of my daily routine…That wasn't intentional.

Okay, some people asked me about it, so to avoid problems with understanding the theme of the contest, here You have a definition of the word "personification":
Personification is an ontological metaphor in which a thing or abstraction is represented as a person.
The term "personification" may apply to:
* A description of an object as being a living person or animal as in: "The sun shone brightly down on me as if she were shining for me alone". In this example the sun is depicted as if capable of intent, and is referenced with the pronoun "she" rather than "it".
* An outstanding example of a quality or idea: "He's invisible, a walking personification of the Negative" (Ralph Ellison).
* An artistic representation of an abstract quality or idea as a person, for example the four cardi

Suggest a deviant by DEVNOTE! (Title: "Worthy Deviant(s)")
Have a friend suggest you! (You and the suggester must this journal!)

The most suggested deviants will be put into a poll. By the end, I will pick out of the remaining 4 who I think deserves the premium. I will choose them based off of if they are good to the community at large, helpful, supportive, and more. (If I find that none are, I will look at other contestants. If none are, then we have to start over.)

It was at the post-office yesterday already, but I was delivering an oilpainting to a customer so I wasn't able to pick it up... T^T
Well, today I went to see a dentist and their office is right next to the post-office, so I got two birds with one stone! (and a 321€ bill for my teeth being fixed, omfg. x_x)

This image does not represent the truth that is my desk, though; usually it's cluttered with coffee-cups, trash and things that could be better suited elsewhere but I've left them on my table for whatever reason and they take up a lot space!

Contest Announcement~I am officially announcing my first contest, i have planned this for a month and finally i can officially announce itContest Announcement~2 weeks ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The idea of this contest is simple, draw one of my OCs Crow or Fox or both if you feel inspired!
They are my original characters. They are creatures with magic but that doesn't make the very special because they live in a world where many things are magical. Also they live in a forest. The place they live in has no cities or technology, only clans of different magical creatures. They have absolutely no contact with humans either although humans do exist in this world, these creatures just stay away from them. Fox is cunning and composed, while Crow is easily manipulated and sincere. Fox is blackmailing him and keeping him under her thumb because she wants to keep him close to her and that is the only way she knows how.
here are images of them for inspiration

Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a
