PE - All From One BaseA little under a week before Dolling Week began, mariiiis-dolls sent me a note with an amazing idea...PE - All From One Base3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
"Many people don't think dolling is very difficult, because we use premade bases and therefore don't put much effort into our dolls....But we do.
How about choosing (or creating, even though it's very spontaneous) a base, and a few dollers with diverse styles who should use the same base? Everyone would doll in their own unique style, to show that bases are more an inspiration, a point to start or a kind of 'collab' with the base maker, rather than a crutch? Maybe even a small description about the techniques the dollers use, technical details (like colors, time spent and so on). Dolling can be much more than using the base because 'we're lazy' - we use bases because we want to work with different styles, and combine styles of our own with styles of the base maker to create unique work."

ReBoot Returns!!!!VANCOUVER, BC (September 30, 2013) – A renowned global animation brand is about to be re-booted. Reflecting the company’s commitment to the production of animated programming for television, Rainmaker Entertainment Inc. has named its television division Mainframe Entertainment.ReBoot Returns!!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In conjunction with the re-birth of Mainframe Entertainment, a name celebrated for its pioneering achievements in computer-animated television, the company has unveiled the first two series in development: an all-new version of the popular ReBoot franchise and Tiger’s Apprentice, a CGI animated series based on the trilogy of young adult novels written by award-winning author Laurence Yep.
The reimagining of the venerable ReBoot series comes just in time for its 20th anniversary. Making its debut on television screens in 1994, ReBoot was centered on the world of Mainframe, where a guardian program sprite and his friends defended the system from superviruses bent on creating havoc and

We're looking for game players to come and join in our deviantART Birthday Event! In just a short while 3wyl and myself are hosting an interpretation of a British game show called Pointless. The idea of the game is that you have to guess the least popular answer to a multiple answers question. You will be awarded points accordingly, those with the most points will win - but you will have used pointless answers to get there!
We'll have pre-judged the least popular and most popular answers by asking a panel of CVs beforehand for their responses. Want an example?
Name a Film Starring Tom Cruise
Okay so Mission Impossible is a really high answer and if you said that one, you'd get lots of points. Which isn't good! If you said Rain Man - you'd possibly be getting less points. But if you said something like Endless Love or Taps, then you'd be hitting on an answer tha

My DeviantArt StoryThe greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.My DeviantArt Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
December 25th, 2006. I was sixteen. Everyone wore masks, they didn't like having to stare at the monster beneath whenever they looked in the mirror. Most of my time was spent writing and learning how to operate my dad's Minolta x700. Digital art slowly took over traditional mediums. I was never really one for socializing, so there were many nights spent with Dr. Pepper and pumpkin seeds while I designed the night away.
The art in this gallery is a mix of favorites and imagery similar to the content of the paragraphs.
These artists deserve some recognition - go leave them a comment!

Leather FeathersWell, I didn't expect quite a huge (and positive!) reaction to my leather feathers, but since I've been getting a lot of requests for commissions and pricing, I figured I would put a journal here with details.Leather Feathers4 years ago in Personal More Like This
SIZES AND PROPORTIONS:
So far I've made these in two sizes - 4 1/2 inches and 7 inches. You can see examples of these feathers to scale here:
4 1/2-inch feather: http://www.falconmoon.com/masks/barnowlfeather_size.jpg
7-inch feather: http://www.falconmoon.com/masks/redtailfeather_size.jpg
I've also made a wide range of feathers, ranging from 2.5" to 7". You can see examples of some of these feathers here:
2.5 to 4 1/2 inch feathers are better suited for pendants, unless you want a huge feather around your neck. I know some people love big pendants! These also aren't JUST meant to be pendants - they're designed for anything - hair decorations, hanging from bags, from walls, inside cars, or if you hav

Okay! I'm ready to announce the winners.
First off, thank you ALL, so much, for your participation. I regret that I was not able to find the time to bring more of your inspirations to life as I desired. I will hopefully, in the coming months, find some opportunities to make more of them... however this time it's just the seven. Not terrible for a month, though, I guess. XD
Oh, and so sorry that I haven't responded to comments much lately. @_@
Inspired by :iconValhallia:
This one. Forgive the terribad photo, but, OMG, total buzz when I was making it, that buzz that fuels the innovation of a really new concept to me, with just a technique or two that I had before. Usually my necklaces look really quite different, to me at least. The colours were also a departure for me; it's unlikely I would have thought to use them wi
Some thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.I commission art a lot. I've commissioned from many different artists all over the world. And after several years here are a few on my own personal thoughts on commissionsSome thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. List you prices.
- Whether its flat rates or by the hour, artists that commissions should list their rates. Most the time the old saying "If you have to ask, it probably costs to much." really comes into play here. I'm so much more likely to commission someone where I can gauge my budget. I myself am a single income family of five. That means I have a budget. A budget means I shop around. So that means when I am comparing artists if I know what I can spend with one and not the other, I'm more likely to go with the one I know I can budget.
2. List your customers.
- It is so much easier for a person to know where they stand when you have them listed.
2½. Update your customers.
- Most artists have an idea how long something is going to take. Now it's understandable that the idea isn't always acc

WIN 75 POINTS. The Great Character ChallengeHey guys!WIN 75 POINTS. The Great Character Challenge3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I really want a great character that I can start using in artwork that will be somewhat of a mascot for my account. And I need your help...
75 Points Goes to the Best Design!
Create a character. Breed/Creature/Species, name, colors... those are the main things I want you to include. Nothing else is required!
If you win, I give you 75 for your design, meaning that I am buying it off of you, and therefore the design and character belongs to me. The character may show up in a bunch of artwork that may even be for sale! You could be helping to create a character that someone else will hang on a wall or put on their phone!
Deadline is the 20th of October.
Please make sure your design is unique! (and no human characters! And try to stay away from horses, too!)
I reserve the right to make any changes to the winning design. You still get the points, but I can change the name, colors, etc. Win-win situation, eh?!

About the Accusation.So I woke up this morning, and found my DA page rather bombarded with accusing comments by a user named AetasSerenus.About the Accusation.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I've blocked him and deleted most of his comments since he basically wrote the same thing everywhere he could find in my page(what an annoying business it was to find all of them like tracking down cockroaches in your room). I've always simply ignored such a user, but this time I thought it was necessary to rebut what he said as I am quite offended.
Well, he argues that I'm a fraud,
that I somehow get the photograph from the Internet and tinker it with Photoshop and post it on DA as if I have painted it myself.
The 'evidence' he offers is even less creative.
1) He argues that the exif data(the data that was automatically stored with the image) states that Photoshop CS5 is used
- well, isn't this obvious? I use Photoshop for all my images. Photoshop is used to adjust the size and correct the colours of the image, after I've taken the photo of my work, so that the i

International Tiger Day + FeatureYesterday was International Tiger Day: an annual day of both celebration of the beauty of, and awareness of the plight of, tigers. Tiger populations around the globe have plummeted due to hunting, habitat loss and climate shifts. 100 years ago there were more than 100,000 tigers left in the wild. Today their numbers sit at a meagre 3,200. Three subspecies of tiger have already gone extinct. The remaining 6 subspecies are either endangered or critically endangered. In a decade, they may all be completely extinct from the wild. They've lost over 90% of their habitat, and the shifting climate is threatening to remove what little we've left them. If we don't mitigate the impacts of climate change now, the Sundarbans (their largest remaining stronghold) will be under water in 50 years. It's not a problem for our granchildren: many of us will live to see this.International Tiger Day + Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In order to save them, we need to mitigate their impacts on their environment and that of the rest of the ecosystem. We need to work
