This is a short segment in my life that I haven't really talked about before, (mostly out of shame). So after graduating from Graphic Design school, my dearest mother really wanted to push me to study somthing else to 'expand my worldly knowledge', she started asking if just having a Graphic Design background is enough, whether I have enough skills to survive in the real world. She kept talking and talking, so in order to shut her up, I told her I could study web design because internet is the future and I have no knowledge of coding. She liked the idea. GOOD, Now leave me alone, I will study Web Design and become good at it, maybe I have a hidden talent with coding, maybe I am The One. Big mistake. :T (There has been wayyyy too many times when I would choose to listen to my mother's advice instead of following my own instinct, and in turn costing me lots of problems in the end. The most recent one costing me a whole gr

Contest for the Fakemon-Group!
Idea for the contest - Create three fakemon starters based on the descriptions I give for them.
*Water Stater - Has to be a fakemon based on an animal you can adopt from the pet store
*Fire Starter - Has to be a fakemon that would hop to move instead of walk
*Grass Starter - Has to be a fakemon based on a flower
You are only required to draw the first stage of the fakemon starters (fire, water and grass), but you may draw the other evolutions for fun if you wish. (There could be extra prizes too if you do.)
You can only submit one set of fakemon starters (Fire, w

If you want to participate make sure you:
- Use the blank I've uploaded in my stas'h (make sure you download it, yo can add a background, do it transparent or keep it white but don't erase the black border): http://sta.sh/022ctnah8dp4
- You have to check which pokémon are taken or free to draw in th list down below the blank, and then tell me which one will you choose in a note (make sure you tell me, if not I don't know who's participating in the collab).
-Once you finish the work, give me in a note the link to it (you can upload it in your gallery, but I think it will be better if you save it in stash's and upload it when the final collab is finished and uploaded to my account).
I will put a deadline when all pokémons are taken (pay attention to my shoutbox), you can check the progress of the final collab in m

Ok guys, it's been a while since I did one of these so let's have another Fakemon contest. With the arrival of Pokemon X and Y, a lot of people have caught or at least seen some of the new fairy types and that's what this contest will be based on. I have seen a lot of fairy type fakemon appearing with various degrees of success from my point of view; there have been some great ones and some have just slapped the type on without really understanding much about the type's classification. Although there are some official designs that still elude me as t

Designs for Fakemons 75% DoneSo I have sketched all the ones I have written down, I am currently in the process of adding basic colours which is all I can do at this point in time. I have done quite a few designs but I feel some may be a little repetitive which is a shame (I think it's all this hype with Syleveon) So don't be surprised if your winged designs are similar I know its been 3 weeks but I wasn't ready for all of the comments I'm relativily new to dA and am still learning, so thanks for being incredibly patient with me and in the future everything will be done on time -PerpleXDesigns for Fakemons 75% Done2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Artistic contest! -FINISHED- Inspired by my new fakemon based on the work of Alphonse Mucha, Gluuumi and I, jamieyuki , have decided to hold a contest so we get to see some more art related fakemon!Artistic contest! -FINISHED-7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Ok here's the concept:
You must create a fakemon based around a famous painter/artist or his/her work. It can be inspired by his/her most well known piece or by their overall style. You can make just one fakemon or evolutions. It has to be original and created for this competition. You can do it digitally or traditionally but we'd prefer it was coloured (unless it's supposed to be black and white!). It can be a legendary, a single line... whatever you want. Fake types like light or sound are also allowed. Also, keep calm, contests are for fun! And please, you must write a journal spreading the word.
The deadline is August 1st!
Me and Jamieyuki will decide the top 3 and those 3 will get a fakemon of theirs drawn by both of us. So that's 2 drawings per winner~
Ok here are some artists to

CONTEST RESULTS: FAIRY NUFF!Hey guys,CONTEST RESULTS: FAIRY NUFF!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly, thank you all so much for the amazing response to my contest, I'm pleased and honored that so many of you took the time to enter and I hope you all had fun. Also, sorry for what seems like disappearing contest entries on my list - sometimes my journals don't update properly, especially if I have several journal tabs open but I always save my entries in a folder for judging when I get given a link, so none will be missed.
This has been a really difficult decision.
I can say in all honesty that every entry I recieved was along the lines of what I was looking for in one form or another; I'd love to give you all a prize, but unfortunately I can't. I would also like to take more time to judge, but if I do, I could be here until the middle of next year still deciding :iconohgodwhyplz:
Firstly, let me describe what I was looking for and how I was judging (and a little insight into my personal design thoughts):

Water Starter Contest (prizes) :DHello all!!! (here is an example made by FrozenFeather)Water Starter Contest (prizes) :D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am really exited to start my new contest. This time I think you will have fun creating you'r entry! Basically since I started my fakemon creating I have had fun creating many different water starters. Back in 2011 I created Mooqua, my Moose water starter. This is quite funny because my current and permanent fire starter is called Moochar! Then came my Hippo starter (which for the life of me I can't remember its name) and most recently my Seal fakemon Glaceal!
Even though I am very proud of Glaceal, I am not sure he is the one(as I call it)! That is why I cant you to make me a water starter, but staying true to my roots it must be either a Hippo, Moose or Seal. So to win 200 here are the rules:
* The fakemon has to be based on either a: SEAL, HIPPO or MOOSE.
* The design has to stand on onl
XY - My ImpressionsSorry tl;dr to follow;XY - My Impressions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Overall, XY are a piece of art. I love the leap to the new graphics and I'm glad they haven't completely gotten rid of the pixel art - the PSS icons in particular are a nice touch. As part of a long running series much like Mario or Sonic, the leap to full 3D was a scary prospect to fans for a while but they've done a fantastic job and set a stellar example for other series to follow.
I commend the story, the graphics, the music, the multiplayer connectivity. For the first time ever you are able to view if your friends are online without having to go into a union room, and trade or battle at the click of a button! This alone has been a massive high-point for these games. More than ever I'm seeing my friends battling it out in real time whilst going on my adventure - it really makes you feel connected to something larger than yourself.
Whilst I absolutely love the new trainer art, after a while it begins to feel that the battles are slightly disconnected to the ga

Yeah my social life is a little weird.
The journal yesterday was out to somebody who I go to school with that I have mutual feelings about.
Yeeeeah I don't know
I just want to be friends with him really. He's just been really nice to me a lot and takes into consideration that I am a person unlike a lot of other people I go to school with.
A lot of people seem to think of me as less of a person and like my opinion doesn't matter but he does and that's why I really wish I had the courage to thank him.
Relationships are hard.
I really care about a lot of different people but I don't know how they feel about me.
So yeah here lemme vent out a little so I can get this off my chest. I really like having the ability to vent out to you guys like this because you all give me positive feedback and make me feel better because you

I'm flying to Germany tomorrow (Sunday 8.12) and am staying there one whole month.
This means I won't be online as much and I won't have the time to draw as much whilst I'm there.
But I am taking my tablet with me and there'll be times where I'm going to get on to draw and check DA,
so I might upload a couple of things during this month. Especially I look forward to finishing my commissions, sorry for making you wait!

-Hungry birds- Fakemon contestHello and welcome to my "Hungry Birds" Fakemon Contest ! and excuse me for the horrible pun -x--Hungry birds- Fakemon contest1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, this contest is not a normal contest. Why ? Because everybody will get a different theme.
For this contest, you'll have to draw a bird Fakemon with theme of food.
But the theme "food" is a bit vague, that's why everybody will have a different theme.
So, the rules are :
- Tell me you're entering in the comments and chose your level difficult (easy, normal or HARDCORE OF THE DEATH difficult)
- I give you the "theme" for your entry
- You have to do a journal about the contest blah blah blah, you already know all that
- It's a plus if you add a dex entry with your fakemon
- You can enter as many entry as you want, but with the same theme
EDIT : - You can draw till 1-4 Fakemon line (with Mega-evolution)
1st place :
80 (+15 if normal, +20 if difficult)
+ a full body coloured dynamic drawing (active character) and a llama from :dev2r

Now I already did a previous journal (My opinions on referencing, copying, and fans)
if you wish to know a little bit of my thoughts on that...
But I just don't get it.
When people pose and steal to troll, that's one thing. They're just being immature and bored more or less among other possible reasons.
But when people pose and steal identities and work to gain popularity, make friends, or get a name...
Have you no shame.....?
And what then, you make friends, and sooner or later maybe you guys become besties and you'll have to tell them who you really are (and aren't) if you truly consider them a friend. What then? Maybe some are still kind and forgiving enough to let it slide, but how many would still respect you for lying about yourself just so peo
