Thrones + Important EditI recieved a phone call earlier this week from my eye Dr.. My surgery has been postponed. The surgeon had a family emergency and could not be here this week. I waited to tell everyone in case they called to reschedual, but no one has called. It should be later this month. I'm hoping. It's disappointing, but I do understand. I'll let you know when I have a new date.Thrones + Important Edit3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Uncomfortable places to sit
Tonight the new season of Game of Thrones starts. I am so excited. I read the books as they were originally released and the series has remained as true as possible to the books. This is the basis of my themed feature today. My twisted, evil mind would love to live in that world. I've always lived in a fantasy world. I hate it when I have to come back to reality.
Love the April Fools fun this year. dA has outdone itself. I will include as many cats as p

You would need to draw character(s) in the setting of Fireflies. The character(s) can be your OC or any anime/manga character. Your aim will be to depict the mood/ the environment and the expression that goes with the setting.Fireflies are portrayed so beautifully and mysteriously in anime or other media, I find them interesting and wanted to see more drawings inspired on this theme.So I would look forward to your art

Animal April Challenge!EDIT: CHALLENGE STARTS TODAY!Animal April Challenge!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Post finished works in the comments and it will be posted in this journal
With the success of the December and February challenges, and being able to see the progress of the artists who contributed, it was definitely an incredible experience. So again I will be going to be doing another challenge, this time with the help of other artists. This months theme is Animals! I love drawing animals but because of commissions i dont get to draw them often!
The way it works is there will be a photo designated for every other day. There is a two hour time limit with each piece, and my advice would be to use all of this time wisely. There will be two critiquing sessions one around the 15th, and the other at the end of the month so using all the time allotted would be to your benefit.
Only rule: NO TRACING!!!! We will tear you a new one in the critique so DONT DO IT!! We had a couple in the last challenge and it was very very disappo

Shiloh stopped for a moment, pausing in front of an especially old tombstone. He knelt and ran his hand along its face, feeling the indents of the words.
Matthew Jonathan Mayland

Loving son, caring friend.
"Shiloh, what's the matter?" asked Emmy.
He didn't answer. He just crouched, his fingers freezing to the stone, his breath rising in clouds from his parted lips.
"I'm scared," he said finally.
"Why are you scared?"
He shook his head. "All these people here, all these people under us, they were once alive, right? They breathed. They smiled. They cried and sometimes the wanted to die. But they all had their own lives and stories and problems, and we don't know any of them. We don't know anything at all." He bowed his head slightly. "The kid underneath this grave, he was my age when he died. He was seventeen. He had a mum and a dad and a family

the good don't stayI blinked, shifted and cringed. My body was sore, my mind was cloudy and everything throbbed, especially my feet. I blinked a few more times. Goodness, my eyelids were heavy and my wrists itched—how scratchy the blanket upon my chest was!

"It looks like we have a survivor. How are you feeling?"
Turning my head, I saw a white coat, and as my eyes drifted up, there was a stethoscope, assorted pens stuffed inside a pocket, a clean-shaven chin and grey eyes. I opened my mouth, but closed it again, because my tongue was dry and I really didn't feel like talking to anyone. Honestly, I was awful at dying. Everything was trying to do me in, even myself, but I just wouldn't.
And then shame filled me when what I had done truly sunk in:
I could have died.
I wiggled my fingers—I was alive.
"How am I feeling?" I rasped as my old temper was aroused by the absurdity of the doctor's question. "I feel fine. Absolutely goddamn dandy. N

When school ended I thankfully accepted a ride home in Emil's new Plymouth, and while it made me feel terribly selfish, I just couldn't bring myself to wait around for Saul, because his first hour teacher had given him an after-school detention for that morning's tardy. Thankfully, my best friend was of the accepting, generally easygoing variety, and he didn't seem all too perturbed by my decision when I informed him at lunch.
"And I'll have you know that I wouldn't have waited for you either," he told me matter-of-factly.
"That's bosh, Saul," I told him. "In fact, you owe me at least one wait. Remember that day last year when I waited by the bleachers to walk with you to town? In fact, I waited fifteen goddamn minutes for you to finish snogging Pia Grünwald-"
"Hey, hey—she wanted a little kiss so I gave her one! Didn't want to hurt her feelings-"
"You really are a gentleman, Saul. Taking one for the team, were you?" said Erich,
The Alternative Limb ProjectThe Alternative Limb Project by Sophie de Oliveira Barata is a project focused on creating highly realistic and unique prosthetic limbs for amputees. These limbs are designed to stand out, to draw attention to something many people are afraid to look at. The prosthetic are carefully designed by Sophie, a long time artist and special effects artist, to reflect the personalty and hobbies of the wearer. The goal of the whole project is to draw positive attention to something that is normally viewed in a negative light. While the pieces aren't necessarily meant for everyday wear, they function more like an expensive dress or a piece of jewelry that you would wear on a special occasion.The Alternative Limb Project2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

It's 1961, and to support herself and prepare for nursing school the subsequent fall, eighteen-year-old Holly Halliburton becomes a member of a very peculiar agency. They are called "The League of Bedside Sympathizers", or at least that is their official title, though nobody seems to know what it means nor where it originated. Her job? To provide solace and smooth the transition between life and death for hospital patients who have no living or reachable kin. Having successfully undergone four separate "transitions", serious, soft-spoken Holly feels as though she is prepared for anything the agency throws her way. That is, until she is thrust to the bedside of Simon Dalaigh, a melancholy, spirited and blunt young man dying from acute Cystic Fibrosis of the lungs. Their unusual circumstances eventually throw them together int

***Before I begin, I should say this is my third giveaway. This is truly a monthly thing. If, in fact, you HAVE entered before and know the rules, you can skip down to ‘Ready, Set…. Go?’ in bolded type. If you don’t know the rules… Well you should read them. If you don’t follow the rules you won’t get any points (Just remember that I’ve changed it though. 100+ people enter and this goes up to an 800 point giveaway)***

Points SystemEvery Unique picture that you create will give you points.Points System2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When copying and pasting the same picture, for instance for expression memes you will only receive half points. if you draw each face individually you will receive full points. The point of the point system is to award every unique picture.
If you feature any other characters in your picture, you will have a multiplier. So for instance you draw a full bodied picture of your OC and Moxi with a background, you gain 200x2=400 points.
If you draw a picture and it includes people who are not in the academy (aka: they have no character sheet) then you will not be awarded points for them.
Points for backgrounds on certain pictures (Flats & Shaded) will be given points relevant to the amount of complexity in the background. The lower range of points are for super simplistic patterned backgrounds that match the scene while the very high range of the points will be given to backgrounds with multiple interacting elements and w
