WingsGotta share with you guys... A new feathered wing movement .gif!Wings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm never satisfied with the feather wings I make, I am CONSTANTLY tweaking and trying to improve them, honestly it's become a bit of an obsession over the past year. I spend TOO much time doing it. But the fantastic suchacat has commissioned a winged doll and gave me the go-ahead to spend a bit of extra time working on another new mechanism. I've been experimenting over the past month and finally got to the stage of actually producing a pair of wings over the past couple of days and I am SO pleased with how they're turning out!
They are manually operated, my finger is hidden at the base. They are design to be moved by the first primary or by the last secondary to minimise feather distortion. They move easily and smoothly, the feathers put themselves in place and sit nicely... They can be folded and unfolded as well as moved up and down, forwards and backwards.
The extra excellent part is that they have the pot

because what I'm going to rant about involves you
now their may be a light number of you whom it may not apply it
But, what I'm ranting about, is human beings
How fucking stupid can we get.
Second chances, they don't matter, people never change.
Let's skip the clock back, shall we?
A woman couldn't vote
A black man couldn't play football
A couple couldn't get have interracial marriages
What is it about humans,
we constantly seem to have to find the need to pick something that makes someone different from us and shun them away for it?
I'm sorry- but if you're against gays, you fit into that same sector as 'racist' and 'sexist' because let's face it. It's the same fucking problem.
I'm almost afraid to think of what we're going to hate next, now we're hating love because the couple can't biologically reproduce more offspring into our over-populating world, what will it be in a a few decades time? H

How to Draw Manga! Hands Introduction
Hands are a very important part of drawing any character, often in cartoons the hands are caricatured, but in anime and manga this is often not the case (except in chibi form). Understanding the anatomy of the hand can assist all animanga artists. Hand proportions are also important, lest the artwork suffer from tiny or huge 'yaoi hands'.
See also: Tips and Tricks: Feet
Hands are made up of segments, muscles and skin over the bones. Often block forms are used to get the basic shape as shown here:

Some very basic size proportions: middle finger length is the same distance as the tip of chin to tip of nose and is also the length of the palm. The whole hand (tip of middle finger to bottom of pal
CONTEST #2 - 'SCARY' FNAF - CLOSED - WINNERS(Treasure Hunt Next Clue: Outstanding Art)CONTEST #2 - 'SCARY' FNAF - CLOSED - WINNERS8 months ago in Personal More Like This
As usual, there's a lot of FNAF-tastic art that was submitted, and many more deserve to be featured. The top 10 winners list below is basically what's appeared on mod's top 10 lists the most frequently. We had six mods/judges submit their picks. As typical with a lot of entries, there wasn't a lot of crossover with mod's top 10 votes - so something that was #1 on a mod's list might not have appeared on another mod's top 10. (I could've let the members decide the winners through a poll, but in the past with comps for other clubs, it's been skewed since a lot of people round up their watchers to vote for them). Because there really are many entries that are fantastic, please thank everyone for their hard work by faving any entries you like: http://fivenightsatfreddys.deviantart.com/gallery/53889231/COMPETITION-Scary-OPEN

Best video resources for digital artistsLearning the theory without any practice is incredibly pointless when it comes to art. No book, no lecture and no video will ever teach you how to paint if you won't find the time for creating something yourself.Best video resources for digital artists2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
On the other hand, doing everything alone and without any instructions is the longest and hardest way of achieving anything. What's worse it doesn't guarantee you success.
Through the last couple of years I've been painting, I've learned that the best way for me to learn to paint is to copy techniques of people who know what they're doing. There's no better way doing it than watching videos with commentaries. That's why today I thought I'd share with you some great lectures, tutorials and demos I've found on youtube. Below you'll find a list of the best YT channels and samples of videos. Go and subscribe for more great vids!

Going to China!It's been almost five years since I last visited my homeland, and I'm excited and scared at the same time.Going to China!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My last visit in 2009 left me a bit traumatized but I think I'm okay now. My stepmother and half brother in China had tried to kill me with a kitchen knife. I was shaking and crying when I escaped in a taxi that night. After that event, I couldn't feel safe anymore. I changed my flight to return to the US sooner, and never wanted to go back again.
But that's in the past now. I miss my grandparents and other relatives. I miss the food, the cicadas, the unique mountainscape of Sichuan, and ever dwindling bits of the old city that's quickly being replaced by skyscrapers.
I'm looking forward to seeing how much China has changed. Though I'm not looking forward to breathing that air. Air pollution is such a constant health hazard that I had to buy hundreds of dollars worth of respirators for me and my grandparents. I will also be buying air purifiers (that's another five hundred dollars

While on a deviation page, all you have to do is scroll down and look right until you see:
Copy and paste the thumb code.
And if you want it bigger:

If that's not good enough, you can play around with the size like this.. .

Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature3 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.

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.

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'' Reaction3 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.
