-A note for current members: You do not have to wait for a public opening to create second, third, ect... characters. Once you've been accepted after creating your first character (or invited to the group) you may make characters whenever you have the points or the mood strikes you.
Please remember before requesting to join the group that you have your application finished! I've been a little relaxed about this, but with so many people joining I'll probably have to start being more strict, which I don't want to do ;^; So just read the rules, kay, guys?
A couple of things to remember
- You must have your applications in by the 31st of January 31st for this opening.
- When you've finished your application, click on the "Join Group" link. Join Requests are open, but yo

:icononionhiplz: Hi everyone!! Its me!! Amber!!
Well, this week has taken an odd turn of events very quickly.
LaughingGurl has recently informed everyone that she is going to be leaving DeviantArt for a short while for a Christmas vacation with her family.
She will also be going to Japan for a one year student exchange program in February!! How exciting is that?!
Though there are somethings that she won't be able to attend to while on vacation and while in Japan... Such as her 5000 Points Giveaway.
Though, being the insane genius that she is, she has came up with a solution for this problem. She will be leaving me in charge of her contest while she is visiting her family for Christmas.
As for the one year that she will be in Japan, she is currently preparing me to take temporary watch over the LaughingGurl Corporation. She want's to immerse herself in studies and culture and whatnot. So, even tho

A simple guide on: Commissioning an Artist.It's often not as simple as one wants it to be when both artist and client want it to be: Cost efficient, time efficient and quality efficient.A simple guide on: Commissioning an Artist.3 days ago in Personal More Like This
I've often spend my time discussing the best way to handle commissions with clients and artist friends that I came to the conclusion that clarity and understanding is key.
I will divide the guidelines I work with based on 3 commission types.
Book covers ( or illustrations)
Reading all 3 parts will give you the full scope as a lot of it applies to one another as well.
1. Reference board.
If you as a client have very specific characteristic features all set and done for your character it can be very useful for the artist if you'd make them a reference board of art and photos that portray these things.
The artist does not wish for a life story of your character ( unless specifica
Critique is a DialogueCommunication is a collaborative effort.Critique is a Dialogue2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Students and teachers, doctors and patients, the UN and member states—no matter how different the backgrounds are, no matter the gap in experience or who's leading the conversation, it's important for communication to succeed. And the only way to do that is by making sure there's always room for a dialogue.
Dialogue: two sides having a conversation together.
Based on the literature community chat we had not too long ago, critique seems to be desirable. This blog is a response to the fact that a number of people mentioned dissatisfaction with a) how much critique they're getting, and/or b) responses to critiques they're providing.
This is about critiquing people you don't know, and who didn't request a Serious Business Full-Length Critique.

You are beautiful.And you better believe it.You are beautiful.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes, things don’t happen then way that you want it to and it sucks, but don’t let one event in your life make you live your life differently. Don’t let that one thing in your life that went wrong, change the way that you see things. Don’t be sad that you are still alive, be happy an grateful that you are still alive. Everything will get better. I can promise you that it will. As long as you are trying your best, you can achieve anything - You can go far in life.
I get it, it could be one of those days, where your day starts off really badly and you keep hoping and hoping that sometime soon your way turn around for the better, but it doesn’t, right? The next time you have one of these days, remember that you have the ability to change the way your day turns out, if you put enough effort into it. You will be able to do it, just believe in yourself.
You are not worthless. Don't ever let anyone make you think
Concerns about PETAClive here. I just want everybody to know that the whole PETA issue is extremely troubling to me and there is no question of me rubber-stamping the issue without me talking to people on every side of the argument and then making up my own mind.I became involved with this project out of my love for animals.I will not put funds into the hands of those who are not the life-loving souls they claim to be.Until I am certain that I am dealing with those on the side of the angels, I am walking with a cautious stride,and ready to take on anyone who hurts the innocent,as I'm sure would all of you.Thank you for your concern for those who suffer simply because they were born into a careless world.Concerns about PETA2 years ago in Personal More Like This

My voice cracked as I tried to hold myself together.
Facing my love, was the hardest thing I had ever done….
"I acknowledged who you are… but regardless, Lizzie-"
She tried to start.
Tried to excuse herself.
But I wouldn't let her.
She did this.
Words cannot be unsaid….
"THAT'S WHO I AM! I can't change who I am…. Haven't you read my file at all??"
"That's how you can be with whoever is willing to except you being absolutely disgusting. But not with me."
Her voice was cold.
"THEN LEAVE! LEAVE, LEAVE, LEAVE, LEAVE!!! LEAVE LIKE YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO!!"
A single tear escaped my face.
I tried to hold myself.
Stop the shaking.
Show her that I don't need her…
Looked at me and said,

Why I Draw Women OftenI recently got a message, and I will slightly reword it so as not to cause profane friction, nor will I state who it came from, but it read like this: "Why is everything you post regarding a woman? I think it's very sexist when the only thing you can draw are breasts and buttocks like it's the only thing in the world."Why I Draw Women Often2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so by now, if you haven't been watching me for a good minute, you know that I really like to draw women, and I like portraying the female form, usually and often in a tasteful manner. I could hypothetically end that question there and just answer "I wasn't aware everything in my gallery was a woman or had breasts and a butt" and then post a picture or two of Rai Rivet... But I'm not going to do that. I'm going to explain my stance on drawing the female form and my adoration for it.

when people want to trace my stuff or use it as a reference, i say, go for it. if it helps you learn something, awesome!
when people want to edit something of mine and take the moment to ask me to do it, i usually say yes
we are all different, we all have our own little fetishes, and mine being bdsm, who the fuck am i to judge.
but recently i have been sent a link of one of my pictures, ally and lisa as a ponygirl one edited to be a guy....and it pissed me off.
not because the picture was edited, hell not even because whoever did it ended up putting their own website watermark to it... fuck it
what pissed me off is that the person who did it couldn't take a second to ask could he or she do it. just basic respect
cause the funny thing is, i wou
