MASCOT CONTEST - ALL INFOWell, here's all you need to know about the contestMASCOT CONTEST - ALL INFO3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Members have two options: to use the old mascot as reference (http://gabbyta.deviantart.com/art/Fighting-Laziness-Mascot-Entry-191564487) -for those of you who don’t know or don’t have the time to create a character – or to create your own OC from scratch. For the latter option, it’s important to highlight that the character may be a person, animal or anthro (no hentai or gore, please) and it must be created by you specifically for this group (i.e. you cannot use existing characters –like fanart- or mascots that you’ve submitted to other groups, or stuff like that.)
Submit your entry to the folder "MASCOT CONTEST." You may submit AS MANY ENTRIES AS YOU WANT but, in that case, you cannot win more than one prize (i.e. the same person cannot be in the 1st, 2nd and/or 3rd place, since that would not be fair.)
What are we looking for in the new mascot? For it to convey the group's mess

Tortall Comics Project: VOLUME 2!!!Hey everyone!Tortall Comics Project: VOLUME 2!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a loooong time Anyway we have a huge announcement to make... after messaging Tamora Pierce some weeks ago for her permission to make a SECOND Tortall Comics Project anthology book, we finally have her answer, and it's a thrilling "YES"!! This is extremely exciting, as when we made the first fan anthology, we had no idea that it would become so beloved by fans on deviantART as well as Tumblr, and elsewhere! Now that we have a bigger fanbase and reach, we'd like to ask for your help... we'd like more artists who are fans of Tammy's signing up on deviantART and contributing to the second volume! So please spread the word!
This journal entry is also to announce the change in administrator positions! I'm stepping down from the role of Director of the TCP in order to make way for the fabulous Queen-Obsessed! >v

Okay [species rant]I feel like I should just warn people about somethingOkay [species rant]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Original species can be a super fun thing to get into! The very creative ones especially, I am very fond of
Now, I personally don't give two shits if you want to take a dog, give it a theme and put things on it, and call it a closed species, I honestly don't, as long as you aren't attacking people for having similar ideas on such a basic concept, this goes for any 'raw/basic' species design. I've said something about this in the past here.
However I feel like you guys should know, you should really stray away from raw/basic species designs because lately some people are getting very irritated by them and if you have one, you will likely be judged as 'oh another person with those uncreative species' and people may even get violent. I do not want people to fight over something so silly.
As always I encourage you guys to
Challenge 4: Yellow - TOP 5Dear all friends,Challenge 4: Yellow - TOP 53 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sorry for late result but we have more entries this time, and even more amazing works .
With a lot of entries therefore it took me while to choose top 5. This time, so many good entries with great concepts. It's really hard for me to pick 5 only.
I don't pick the top 5 base on drawing skills only but also the concept of their entries. But there were more than 20 entries I want to pick as winners :C. But don't worry, we will have more challenges in future.
I think there are too many good entries, top 5 are not enough actually. We call it top 5 but actually I think there are at least top 20 or more, since this time, so so many lovely entries . How about giving out top 10 in next challenge (when we have enough point again, yes). People will get 100 points each, less points but more people who will get it. How do you think about it? Because I think actually this is not a contest, it's just a little challenge for fun and a reason to draw more, practice mo

Improving your art through ARPGs: pros and consHeya, so recently I've been thinking about this. I've been in probably more than 50 forum, ARPG and other RP type groups throughout my life. All of them to an extent I've treated like an ARPG, doing almost as many drawings as I did text posts.Improving your art through ARPGs: pros and cons3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I realised that in a way this has shaped the way I've learned and I wanted to clue you guys in on how you can possibly avoid my mistakes and use the games to your advantage.
Now, I know that plenty of you will be lackadaisical about your art: it's a minor hobby for you or you don't really have any strong desire to improve your work. You just want to relax and enjoy - that's fine. You can probably stop reading. This is for the others - those of you who love games like this but want to level up your skills at the same time. Because these games have a lot of good points but they also have some major pitfalls if you care about improvement.
It's a short list, but all of them are great reasons to stick arou

NO ME HARIAS DAÑO.....
Era un dia como cualquiera en la eskuela y ya era hora de el almuerzo. Zim, como siempre, solo vei la comida con mucha extrañesa y asquerosidad pero sin embargo tenia que aguantarse y dejar avanzar a la fila detrás de si.
Mientras tanto Dib ya estaba con Gaz en su tipica mesa alejada casi de todos almorzando su comida y viendo a Zim con todo el desprecio del mundo.
Dib: Míralo Gaz, ¡Cómo es que nadie ve que la comida humana lo hace actuar raro!
Siempre hace lo mismo y nadie lo nota ¡No entiendo!
Gaz: No podrias dejar de pensar en Zim por un segundo, siempre estas diciendo quejas muy estúpidas y no me dejas concentrarme en mi juego. No entiendo e
Rat Anatomy Compilation.Rats are very fascinating little creatures. They have small hands like humans, minus the thumbs. They are intelligent and social, and each rat has a unique personality. They can also easily stand on their hind legs, making them an easy transition to an anthropomorphic form for stories and art.Rat Anatomy Compilation.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, though, they are damn difficult to draw, and there are precious few resources for those wishing to delve into their anatomical structure (certainly me included). So I will be collecting references, both photos and drawings, that I think might be helpful to someone looking to draw my charming friend Rattus norvegicus (and perhaps some of his closest family members). I will probably add to this from time to time as I find new resources, so please feel free to suggest things that you think might be useful!

Border CSS TipsYou'll find many border css styles all around the web .. I am not adding anything new here .. just collecting some of my favourite border styles and tips together ..

Wow .. thanx for the feedback .. with ur help I'll add more tips below .. keep an eye on them XD
What's a border?
Border is what surrounds your html/css object/item, let it be a text, an empty box, or an image .. etc
What makes up a border?
Border has four properties:
Color - Width - Style - Radius
Whether you choose for your border to be visible or not, bear in mind it's made up of four parts:
Top - Bottom - Right - Left
How to use that in CSS?
The border properties have different ways to write down their values, but I always use a fixed/limited way:
color: #------; --> border color
width: --px; --> border thickness
style: solid, dashed, dotted; --> border ap

Journal updated, with my scanning technique=======Journal updated, with my scanning technique3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've got so many questions about how I scan my traditional artworks, I also wanted to try out my deviantart Sta.sh storage, so I've uploaded some scanned files and put them on this journal.
Here's my method.
: I use HP G4050 scanner
: My current working OS is Windows 7, but I always use Windows XP to scan my artworks
: I always put 2 bluish-tint transparent films under my pictures when scanning. [You can buy transparent film at stationery stores.]
: Then adjust colors with photoshop, I always set contrast to [+12] or [+14] and I always use legacy contrast.
: I also adjust sharpness sometimes.
[filter>sharpen>unsharp mask> and adjust radius to : +1 pixels.
: Remove all eraser dust using clone stamp tool and it's done.
Someone might wonder why don't I use windows 7 for scanning, why do I have to put 2 transparent films underneath, and why they have to be bluish tint, I have uploaded some sample images for you to compare.
