Welcome! + About the SkydogsHello and Welcome!Welcome! + About the Skydogs3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is Skydog-Central, and I'm the founder, Drodengera! I kindly invite you to join our group and become a part of our family. We hope to have many supporters in the future so that the Skydogs can fly higher!
And now, for the long awaited (for me at least) information journal has arrived! This journal will contain everything you currently need to know about the Skydogs! Some things have been altered since the Skydog Profile was uploaded, so please, for updated information check the journal section frequently. Let's get to it then, shall we?
Who are the Skydogs?
Skydogs are a futuristic race that originate in the Grand Canyon. Since the area was quite desolated, with little food and resources, the only option is to venture down into the canyon, where the river makes it possible for small rodents and shrubs to grow.
Skydogs, being an advanced futuristic civilization realized that they must teach themselves how to fly. They

You're Not Just a WriterYou're not just a writer. You may know it or you may not, but you're also a psychologist, a sociologist, and an anthropologist. Good writing captures humanity on a page and resonates with the reader, whether you want to fill their head with sad truths until they cry them out, or play with a reader's expectations until you've tickled their brains so hard their stomachs can feel it and they burst out laughing.You're Not Just a Writer2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Studying these things is awesome whether you want to make a profound statement about humanity, or just entertain people (or both at the same time). They can up your arsenal in your idea-pool to draw from, too. What makes a comedian funny is making witty observations that ring true to life--the audience won't find a joke funny if they can't relate to the situation in it.
I'm not saying you should necessarily go to college for these fields and study them really in depth. Knowing the names for each different type of brain cell isn't really what I'm talking about.

Tips & tricks for better arting Decided to edit and update this for my new watchers, hopefully this will inspire you guys somewhat <3Tips & tricks for better arting3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is something I've wanted to do for a while... just a compilation of everything I've learned in the past year that I've been arting. Dunno if it'll help anyone else, but here's some organized rambling for you.
Finding Inspiration and Resources
This is a huge thing that so many artists struggle with. Inspiration comes and goes all the time and it can be so frustrating when you feel like you have all these ideas in your head, but you can't get them out. It may be because you don't think you're a good enough artist to pull your vision out of your mind and share it with everyone else. Or maybe you're just so stressed by life things that you've artblocked yourself. If you're feeling down about your artistic ability, keep in mind that everyone starts somewhere. YOU CAN'T GIVE UP! I remember a while back, I was doing some studying on Terryl Whitlatch's
Inspirational Journal: Why to Keep TryingThis is sort of a response to a few events that happened around dA lately. I'm not singling anyone out, I'm just expressing my thoughts and hopefully putting some positive energy back into the community.Inspirational Journal: Why to Keep Trying3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here it is. Popularity is a big issue in the art world, as is expected. When you're popular, you get more people knowing who you are, and when more people know who you are, you have a better chance to sell your work and for higher prices. Simply because your name is well known for that thing you do.
I notice alot of people out there right now racing to be the first to do something, to claim that little slice of originality to put their name on. And once that "first" has been taken...alot of artists are seeming to just drop off, back down, and say "well if I can't be first, then why bother trying? I'll never be well known as a runner up." This is just..plain wrong. The person to do something first, (whether it be creating an idea or design, or becoming liked/noticed out of a group of

Line art, tracing and referencingI have been getting a few people asking to make Line-art out of my work or you know a trace of some artist piece so everyone can have a recolor of it.Line art, tracing and referencing1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Some ask, some just go ahead and do it, I'm NOT OK with you tracing someones work line for line and posting as your own for others to recolor, its a little insulting to the artist even more so if it was a commission.
Using someones else art to make bases or adoptables, is wrong and ruins the artist's original vision. There are 100's of free bases out there and cheap ones, you shouldn't be tracing work without permission for adoptable and bases.
Its ok to trace someones art for learning purposes, but it should never be posted! its even ok to highly reference peoples work for learning purposes, but don't post it! or at lest ask the artist for permission first before doing so.
I made a chart below to show the differences, hope that clears up some confusion.
Imposters on Social Networking. IMPORTANT.I was informed yesterday of a user using my name and likeness on Facebook. Not only me but Deni also.Imposters on Social Networking. IMPORTANT.4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I will make things clear now. I DO have two Facebook accounts, one is private for Family and Work colleagues.
The other is for my YouTube Content. I do not, I repeat, NOT have a Facebook account connected with my art or affiliated with my art in any way, shape or form. (But I think I should make an official page in light of the current situation)
I will not link the page in question in this journal because I don't want people to start causing crap with these users.
I did try to confront them about it, but I was immediately blocked so now I can't even report the pages.
Not only this but there are an increasing number of people taking mine and Deni's artwork and posting it on stupid 'Roleplay' pages also on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We have strict disclaimers on our pages that state.

Health and other stuffHello mah deerlings! Seeing any sights of spring in your fur? Hehe.Health and other stuff1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So Tammy here, just wanting to post a journal and talk how things are going.
First I'd like to talk about my health. You may remember that about two months ago I posted a journal and told you I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I've been eating the medicine now two months and I went to take the laboratory tests again a few days ago. I got some of the results already and I am happy to tell that my results are way better now! My hormone levels are not perfect yet but I already feel good and thinking that I should be feeling even better makes me excited! I'll still wait for a call from my other doctor but I think I we will agree that I'll start eating one full pill per day.
So yeah! I am feeling great! I started taking the medicine and also extra iron to raise my defence iron levels and I feel a lot more vivacious now! Normally I used to sleep till noon on weekends but now I have no problems waking up on 8 or 9 am!

novel updatesI've been asked quite some times recently how my novel is going I appreciate it when people ask me that, but since it would take a lot of time to give long replies to all those comments, I'll post some updates in this journal entry instead. ^_^novel updates3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've recently written two new chapters of "SPIKE". I'm writing the end part of the novel now, so those chapters are very close to the end of the novel.
There's the opening part, which are the chapters that I've posted here in my gallery, then there's the mid part that I have planned out and worked on, but not actually written any chapters on. And then there's the end part, which starts where the mid part ends and goes all the way to the final chapter. The end part, to me, is the most interesting part, so that's why I'm writing that first I will make the mid part very interesting too, of course, but I just enjoy writing the end part the most.
I don't know if this next thing I'll say is a spoiler or not, since some of you might know already,

Favourite artistsI could do a poll about this but I feel like when I did I just got people posting a whole bunch of icons and not much explanationFavourite artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Who are your favourite artists? (Either here on dA or outside this site/the internet)
What do they do that inspired(s) you to watch them?
Post as many as you can but could you also explain as to why they are your favourite?
Do you feel they are a reason you continue to work harder at your chosen craft?
I'm not trying to be nosy really, just curious. It's easy to post a bunch of icons of people who may have done something you've liked but I'm looking for the artists who are your ultimate favourites.
The ones whose artwork/works inspire you, help you, give you feels, and excite you when their work shows up in your inbox.
Take all the time you need on this lol no rush to answer.

My Christmas TraditionIt's that time of year againMy Christmas Tradition5 months ago in Personal More Like This
And as always it's my tradition to share my Christmas poem I made many moons ago.
"T'was the night before Christmas
And all through the house
Everyone felt shitty
Even the mouse...
With Mum at the Whorehouse
And Dad smoking grass
I'd just settled down
For a nice piece of ass
When all of a sudden
I heard such a clatter
I sprang from my hoe
To see what was the matter
When out on the lawn
I saw a huge prick
I knew instantly
It must be Saint Nick
He came down the Chimney
Like a Bat out of hell
I knew right away
The fucker had fell
He filled all our stockings
With pretzels and Beer
And a big rubber Dick
For my brother, The Queer.
He rose up the Chimney
With a thunderous fart
Blew the Chimney apart!
He cursed and he swore
As he flew out of sight
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!"
Merry Christmas, guys!

You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.
A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up."
Your dad runs to your room. He looks at yo

Just wondering...I don't want to sound like 'that guy' but...Just wondering...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Since when is mis-gendering someone an insult?
I mean honestly.
So what if someone accidentally calls you a male or female pronoun if you're the opposite. Unless they do it on purpose I don't see a point in getting all pissed off about it.
Save yourself the grief and just deal with it. You're on the internet and chances are 99% of the time people commenting or talking to you/about you won't know you're gender unless you tell them.
Nowadays it seems gender roles are taken SO seriously that it's like criminal if you make a mistake about it. You get your head snapped off at the neck or an army of angry people plaguing you calling you a homophobic dick or some other random gender-hating label.
To be honest I don't care if you call me he, she, him, her, his, hers, lamp, llama, shark, pinto bean, or whatever.
My gender is NOT that important. It's what I am, not who I am and to be honest I

I've never actually had a fursona that is "me" that I like. Sure I have Gordon but he's more of a mascot orsm. I never get pleased with what I design myself, and I tend to want my fursona to be different animals all the time. I can't decideeeeee.

If I end up not wanting any of the designs, I'll still crown a winner (prize might be lower tho).
