PuzzlesMany people use the analogy... "each person is a puzzle piece, and we all fit together. We just need to find the right match." or something along those lines. I thought about it today and realized that I disagree with that.Puzzles3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would describe myself as an entire puzzle. I am composed of hundreds of pieces. I think we all are.
When you love somebody, you give them the whole box of pieces. They can put you together or take you apart. They can take a few pieces with them and never return. And when that happens, you're just an incomplete puzzle. You walk around, and the spaces are visible. But you know what? Even an incomplete puzzle is beautiful. You have a special quality. You have character. Depth. Mystery. A special kind of person will always look at an incomplete puzzle and fill in the spaces.
Myself? I'm an unopened box of puzzle pieces. Perhaps I'm happy this way. Yet I can't help but wonder if somebody would try to put me together, and see the big picture.

! DESIGN ME A FURSONA CONTEST ! - edit -hi um. this contest is on hold right now so please don't do your entries just yet!! DESIGN ME A FURSONA CONTEST ! - edit -2 years ago in Personal More Like This
edit: i'm PRETTY SURE I WANT A HYENA FURSONA. i think i've decided on that.
I've never actually had a fursona that is "me" that I like. Sure I have Gordon but he's more of a mascot orsm. I never get pleased with what I design myself, and I tend to want my fursona to be different animals all the time. I can't decideeeeee.
So i thought i'd do this contest lol.
If I end up not wanting any of the designs, I'll still crown a winner (prize might be lower tho).
OK LETS START
remember to read everything
it can get long heh
THINGS I LIKE AND STUFF:
- UNIQUE DESIGNS. easily recognizable and simple-ish.
idk what species I want or anything. i'd suggest you pick one of the animals listed below here that remind you the most of me (you can pick a animal that isnt listed here, but please ask me if i like that animal before you do).
species I like: leopard, pant
why my dad is the bestok so I had to share this with you because it cracked me up so bad.why my dad is the best2 years ago in Personal More Like This
back story: my dad has been in Afghanistan for 6 months and he just came home for Christmas. We picked him up at the airport today
He got out from the uniform and had changed into normal clothes when he got home. And being in Afghanistan he has to grow a beard, for undercover purposes and such. And the beard he has grown in pretty much the same as Tony Stark. So my dad pretty much looks like the baby of Tony Stark and Hawkeye. keep that in mind.
So he gets out of the bathroom all changed, and he had fucking went out and bought; the Black Sabbath shirt that Tony wears in The Avengers.
Imagine how much I fangirled all over the floor. My dad loves superhero movies, especially marvel. My mom thought we were crazy, but I'm now here in my captain america shirt with my dad and his iron man shirt. we're the biggest fangirls
On a uniform there's Velcro on the arms and chest for badges and such. And before I go on,

NOTE: THIS CONTEST IS NO LONGER OPEN FOR ENTRIES!
THE WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED 27TH OF MAY.
What you'll do, is simple.
Include my fursona Pan and one of your own characters in a piece of art.
To make it more interesting; you have to make them into some kind of stereotype! This can be anything at all really, for example; vikings, English gentlemen, Ethiopians, astronauts, politicians, Romans, ponies, wolfaboos, ANYTHING!
The term is really rather loose, so basically: Draw them dressing up as something!

JoshDae Contest and Raffle!Here is it- finally! A contest dedicated to none other than Joshwa Kesch and Damien Parker.JoshDae Contest and Raffle!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This contest, though, will be like none other that I've had in the past. This time there will be USD and MAILED ITEMS as prizes! (as well as points, artwork, etc)
YES. Since Damien and Joshwa have become so popular in comparison to my other OCs, I figure that a contest specifically for them should be big and exciting.
So first of all, here is what you'll have to do!
Draw or Write (or anything else) about Damien and/or Joshwa.
That's seriously all I have to do for all of these prizes?"
YES. That is all you have to do LOL it's easy as fuck just join.

» You can draw Joshwa by himself.
» You can draw them both together.
It's YOUR choice! The only rule is that at least ONE of them is present!

I loved the touches of red here. I would imagine him lurking around at night, then leaping and all you see is that little bit of red! He looks very sneaky and I love it. The darker colors make him perfect for this theme!
2. aeimadaieus with
Oh man... The red/black/purple flows so well here. And I love the markings, especially the back of the ears. I think it was a bit too light to fit the theme best though! Either way, this design is great and I love it. <3
3. Vosska with http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/9636/chevylines2.png (imageshack link gfdfg)
I love the colors and I love how the markings flow. The use of red here is faaaantastic and I lovelove the weapon! It just didn't seem "dark" enough, and I wasn't a huge fan of the back marking. Either way though, this one is GORGEOUS.

I have a cute story about Riley the foxWho remembers Riley?I have a cute story about Riley the fox2 years ago in Personal More Like This
He had a family last summer, and since then he hasn't visited for a long long time :c (hence the lack of photos) But I've been seeing him out my window a lot with a mate and some babies QuQ awww. (I can tell it's him because he has a notch in his ear and muzzle scars)
but anyway, in summer I gave him a DeviantART stress ball xD and he used to play fetch with it, and he'd carry it off to his den. And today my mum found it all chewed up the top of my road! QuQ So he's been carrying it around ever since.

There is so many of the entries which deserves something, so I guess im going to work in some more points I use all my points for contest winners anyway xD <3 SO ILL open some slots of commissions I usually dont take points for. They will be slightly cheaper than what they are worth in money (Look at it as a sale for this contest I guess xD )
If you have that amount in points and arent able to pay real money, I guess its a good oppertunity to be able to snag a slot. One slot per person please!

On December 25th, CHRISTMAS, I will announce who has won the art!
So, let's recap. You simply feature me in a journal to tell me to check me out, watch me, AND link this journal etc! Because I need it like hell, and I'll put you down as a number! I will put the numbers into a random number generator and whoever's number of their slot wins you get the art!

I can hardly believe it. Is that even normal?!
OK. I forgot to tell you guys about some important things that have been happening, so here comes my year of 2012 in a nutshell!
I finally convinced my parents, after a whole life of discussion and fights, to let me into ART SCHOOL!:iconexcitedlaplz:
But they said it would come with a price! I would have to work for one year before that (in an office that is, nothing to do with art).
So I got a temporary job with a few contacts, and it was all pretty much what I expected from it: pretty much narrow-minded! Everyone there was 40+, and it was awkward to be the only teenager, besides some other trainers.
I didn't see anyone my age the whole year o.O I even forgot what they look like no, I don't have any friends :c
BUT! During August, I attended to the first short-duration art course of my whole life!!! My teacher was the
