In defense of headdresses.Alright. I've seen (and responded to) the recent rant by :iconCabinetCuriosities: regarding headdresses (among other things, most of which I agreed with, some of which I didn't, but none of which struck me as disrespectful), and I saw the harassment that another user got over her rare pelt that she was going to headdress, and I've seen other people snark about headdresses for various reasons. And I'd like to make a few points.In defense of headdresses.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, it's none of anyone's business what a person does with a hide they have, whether that's make it into a headdress or a soft mount or a blanket or a wall hanger or something for their cat to sleep on. Traditional taxidermy is not inherently more respectful to the animal than headdressing. They can be respectful for different reasons, but ultimately it comes down to the individual person and their approach. And since not a single one of you is sitting here in my living room, watching my work, and none of you are in my head any further than my writing l

Fill In The Gaps ContestThe Premise:Fill In The Gaps Contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a create a character contest. I will be posting a list of characters that have not yet been drawn, and I am interested in portraying, in this journal. You will take ONE of these characters, design them, and submit them. I will pick three winners, and those characters will be considered the official design of those characters as far as The Future Of Our Past comics are concerned.
Please note, once the design and character is submitted, if picked, it will be under my creative property, with credit going to you if/when I use it in the comic at any point in time. Meaning, you will hold no creative license over the character anymore, but will receive credit and publicity by having it in my comic, as my comic does get a lot of views. So do not submit a character if you have issues with that character becoming mine.
Word to the wise, the more realistic their appearance, taking into account

I'm usually not posting personal stuff on dA anymore (see my Twitter for daily life babble), but there's something major I want to share with all of you.
Those following me for a bit longer might still remember that I was working towards my doctorate during the recent 2-3 years. Well, I'm done! I achieved my Ph.D. with A-grades and was awarded with MAGNA CUM LAUDE (latin for 'with great praise').
That means I'm now officially a doctor (not in medicine, if you might wonder)! How amazing is that?
Thank you everyone who followed me during the years! We somehow made it there together - so please fell hugged! Thank you for your support!!

9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!1. - Ink can be used for drawing, writing or painting, anything you chose! You can use it with a brush, cartridge pens or drawing nibs, even a goose-quill will do!9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. - Ink can be water-soluble or, unlike watercolor, waterproof. Once dried out, it stays where you left it, it doesn't run away from you!
3. - Ink can be watered down and used as washes, just like watercolor, but it can be used at full strength, achieving more consistent results!
4. - Ink, when dried on paper, results in a very appealing velvety surface.
5. - Ink is in many cases a lot cheaper than watercolor, even school quality (very cheap) inks bring lovely and very satisfactory results.
6. - Inks are colorful! Forget the black ink, you will be able to buy whole variety of colored inks. Also, you can mix them together to create many more colors & hues!
7. - White ink is a perfect assistant in many other techniques, use it to create highlights and special effects!
8. - Ink

Should you become a professional artist?Hey everyone!Should you become a professional artist?5 months ago in Personal More Like This
A little while ago I was given a list of questions about my experiences as a professional illustrator, along with a few other deviantART members who have taken up art as their career. Now the answers have been put together in a neat overview and I thought it was a very interesting read!
If you're interested in becoming a professional yourself, or if you already are one and would like to read about the experiences of others, go and have a look . One thing I'm particularly happy about is how this demonstrates that the stereotypical "starving artist" is just that - a silly stereotype.

Apparel Collection: SoundwavesIt feels really good to be surrounded on all sides by music, feeling it pump through you like an electric pulse! This design would be the perfect complement to a carefree night of dancing with friends under the stars or boogying down alone in front of a mirror using the build-in headphones.Apparel Collection: Soundwaves2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This illustration was inspired by my love for music and science together. Sound waves are pretty amazing in the way they move ever forward, undulating up and down outwardly from their source. I love the way scientific textbooks illustrate natural phenomenon, because, of course, my artistic mind wants to SEE everything, even things that can’t be seen by the naked eye without special tools. Scientific subject matters are a fun challenge to many artists as they dive into the shapes of nature and physics and apply to them their own styles and techniques.
Like many pieces of art, it can sometimes take the simplest concept to inspire a whole thought process to be expressed on a canvas.

:iconthesmallwonder: Some thoughts from Katie (thesmallwonder)
“See a penny pick it up, all the day you’ll have good luck!”
It doesn’t matter that I’m not a little kid, I still pick up pennies for luck when I see them. Though they have to be heads-up, of course. I also refuse to walk under ladders, I don’t open umbrellas indoors, and I try my best to avoid cracks in the sidewalk. It might be silly superstition, or maybe there’s something more to it.
What ever you believe, cultures and countries around the world and throughout time have decided that different symbols, animals, and events represent good luck.
Check out some of our favorite signs of good luck below!
I want to hear from you!
How did these symbols get their meaning?
Do you believe in good luck and bad luck?
GIVEAWAY! Win things~ ONE DAY LEFT!I didn't want to make a new journal to announce this and bump the giveaway off my page, but!GIVEAWAY! Win things~ ONE DAY LEFT!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just wanted to make a quick announcement! The USPS (what I use to send all packages) recently raised the price of United States first class parcels as well as Delivery Confirmation. To reflect this change, I unfortunately have the raise the price of United States shipping from $2.80 to $3.00. I hope you all understand this change! I do everything I can to keep shipping costs low, but this particular change is out of my control. International price will stay the same at $3.50 per package, as it doesn't come with delivery confirmation and is unaffected by this change.
Thank you for your understanding! ♥ Shipping costs will change on the website and Etsy, so there's nothing you as the buyer need to do, except shake your fist at your local post office. ;D
^^^ just to clarify, this has nothing to do with the giveaway. winner doesn't pay shipping costs--this applies just to normal o
