Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is one of my favourite games of all time, surpassed only by Morrowind, and I've been planning for a long time to put together a feature with original artwork. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since almost all Oblivion-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
Oblivion is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2006. The central plot revolves around the efforts to thwart the fanatical cult Mythic Dawn that plans to open the gates to the demonic realm of Oblivion. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are quest lines for several guilds, and many side missions. Despite being less diversified and immersive than Morrowind, the incredible amount of quality third-party add-ons add a lot of scope and replay value to the game.

DD for some of you :)Hi!DD for some of you :)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
At first, there is a new kiriban: catch my 955 555 pageviews and send me a printscreen via note as a proof to win a feature
No feature for animal cruelty or porn, thanks for understanding.
At second, no, I did not get any DD (only one - bur many years ago buhhehehhehe )
But I have suggested many deviations for DD and I was disappointed when I got no reply and those deviations have not been accepted I think some of those artists created absolutely incredible work and they definitely deserve more attention.
Today, I will show you some of the deviations I have suggested (or plan to suggest) for DD, but which have not been noticed or accepted by admins, which made me really sad and disappointed. DA has some rules for featuring a deviation as a DD, it says that suggested artist should not have a DD yet, it should not be very famous artist and it should include some info about a subject in the descriptions. Those artists followed the rules, but their art has not

He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead
DDs: To select or not to selectHey wazaaaaaap!DDs: To select or not to select2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In my last journal I talked about my stance on Daily Deviations. In this occasion I'll tell you some of the reasons that make me choose some artworks, and the reasons that make me not choose others. Hopefully it will be interesting for some, useful for others or simply a good reading if you're really boring.
What makes me choose a deviation to be featured?
Such a simple question with such an indefinite answer, and I apologize in advance for giving such a vague response but I'll put it simple: Sometimes not even I know!
There's not a secret formula I have to determine if a piece is going to be featured or not, sometimes I really have a hard time making a decision and it really is a case-by-case situation. The deviation needs to STAND OUT, be different, have that "wow" factor. Unfortunately this is very difficult to explain. However ther

News about wolves :(Hello pals,News about wolves :(1 year ago in Personal More Like This
sorry for kiriban winner, you will be featured soon, I did not forget you I just write some sad journals and my mood is far from nice, so this is not the best time for kiriban.
By the way, there is a new one: send me a printscreen of 1 022 222 pageviews and you will win a feature (no feature for porn or animal cruelty, ok).
Well, I have news about wolves, as I have promised to keep you informed.
If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!
Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.
So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.
The ZOO repeatedly applied te

Hizaki Dress: How was made.I bet a lot of people want to know how I made my Hizaki cosplay, so here's some progress photosHizaki Dress: How was made.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I started off with the bodice. My fabric of choice for this: italian velvet (it's a upholstery fabric).
Here's the front.
And the back.
Before make and attach the sleeves, I started to make the skirt. My fabric of choice: shantung jacquard.
For the frills I used the same italian velvet.
Make some straps first.
Make the frills by hand
Testing the fit between the frills to attach them later.
Such a heavy skirt needs a crinoline to support all that weight, so I made one.
Oh my! It can stand on its own!
Time to make and attach the sleeves.
If you want to work with heavy fabrics as the velvet I used, you'll need strong and sharp scissors x_x
Details of the fabric for the sub-sleeves(?)
Painting roses, because I couldn't find the color I wanted. This reminds me "Alice in Wonderland" by Disney, when the cards are painting red the white roses xD

On Writing - Making LoveThe following tutorial is for :iconthe-bards-college: It is of a mature nature and may not be intended for everyone.On Writing - Making Love1 year ago in Personal More Like This
One of the many (well, primary really) reasons I read fanfiction is for that steamy sex scene. I scour FF for the M rated fics that will detail the primitive dance done since the beginning of time. I will usually read the "plot" while making a "let's hurry along" gesture so we can finally have our protagonists naked and in each other's arms. Sometimes I mutter, "Ain't nobody got time for that," and just skip ahead, eager to see what form forbidden love will take now.
And then it's a coin flip on whether it's enjoyable or not.
Well, more like a roll of the dice. Looking for boxcars.
Love scenes are frequently dreaded among new writers. I often compare them to combat scenes – you need at least two people grunting and sweating while thrusting at each other repeatedly. How do you do that and make it interesting?
First off, it is not required to have two charac

You can draw as few or many of my OCs as you like, and you're welcome to draw them with your own
You can re-design their clothes and hair if you feel the need.
It must be new, original work. No bases. (That's kind of my only definite rule.)

Take your art to higher lever in 4 simple steps!
For people who are serious about drawing and want to make career in art! And for me to stop getting questions on how to practice, or how do you get better
Are you stuck and don't know how to carry on making great art?
You just want to draw better?
If an answer to any of these questions is 'yes' then you might find this interesting...
Since the only thing I ever acknowledged myself good at is getting better I decided to share a couple of tricks.
I truly believe it works in every single case.
It's true. You can get out now or shut up and listen and get better.
(oh and do I need to mention that you need to draw a lot to get better?
I didn't draw a lot and still got better because I followed the steps listed below. But yeah, may not work without drawing a lot...)
Step 1. Honesty.
Be aware of your own limitations. They're usually bigger than you really think, despite what people say. I won't be talking about fals

Adventure Time ''The Lich'' ReactionUh... um... I watched "The Lich," the season four finale of Adventure Time... here's what I am capable of thinking of it. Keep in mind that the following article isn't really a review since I can't muster a proper opinion on the episode yet.Adventure Time ''The Lich'' Reaction2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
...First of all, I've gotta praise the foreshadowing of the final events of this episode throughout the last season and in the episode itself. Turns out "King Worm" wasn't an irrelevant Bizarro Episode after all. I loved the delivery throughout the episode, too; it was funny seeing "Billy" explain his plan to Finn in such a frank manner, and looking back, it was also another example of subtle foreshadowing. The scene where all the gems become attached to The Enchiridion except for LSP's supposed "gem" was hilarious as well. And, of course, special mention must go to the Princess Bubblegum sequence before Finn shows up. It's one of those jokes that just wouldn't of worked if the character's personality hadn't already been established so well.
