EDIT: I added the project MOVE header ^-^ 12/18/12~ This was written a while before that though but it falls under the category
I'm writing this partially because of a situation I'm in right now with an artist who I will keep anonymous... and partially because I've wanted to get this out for months now.. And I assure you I probably will not sound like the same person you've known as 'Capu' for my 10 months here now..

Chinese Zodiac OTP- Mini Contest + Silly StuffOVER. Results: http://capukat.deviantart.com/journal/poll/3225621/Chinese Zodiac OTP- Mini Contest + Silly Stuff2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I was always fascinated by the Chinese Zodiac and recently I just decided to google mine
Year of the Ox
I'm a Fire Ox, probably explains my obsession with fire, eh?
/I prefer Cow, cow's are cute, yes/
Well I'm looking at all the stuff that applies then I get to the OTP section where they list my "best match" I'm like okay *reads*
So apparently cows are matched with:
Rats, Snakes, Roosters
And I thought INTERESTING, what would this look like in real life, LITERALLY?
So how about it? :3
Just a short little contest, ends 10/19/12 (next friday), Just enter your pair of animals! :3
It can be your zodiac animal and another, or anything you'd like!
The funniest and best entries win! :'D

My first fluffyfamilymember e-ver!
Here's my baby, Pippin <3
I'd just made him a Shrinky Dink dog tag which I (totes ingeniusly pff totes) designed to fit The Lord of the Rings in colors and font (haha heck yea!)
I'll post some Shrinky Dink stuff later!
Hehe, he's a lovely anatomy reference too *facepalms* xD
He's not named after Pippin (Peregrin Took), per se, but haha since he shares the name --I figured why not xD?(I'm kind of an Lotr fanatic.
Anyway! �He's sleeping at my feet as I'm typing this :3 (precious baby)
SO the story!
So yesterday was when we picked him up :D after a 90 minute drive. He's around 3 months old but no one's sure because his mother was a stray.
He's around 13 pounds (in my attempts to weigh him --had to put him on a box on the scale, lol), and a foot-ish tall (haven't measured him). It's estimated he'll be anywhere from 20-30 p
Character Design Contest 600+ points prizeHey well... i wanna hold a contest for a new main oc. I want to find one that i truely love ^^Character Design Contest 600+ points prize2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So well like i said before this is a character design contest.
i'd like it to be a mix of animals not just one. something thats cute too
For the design, dont make it too complex, but not too simple either.
Foxes, cats, dogs (border collies <3) Birds, Snakes
Bright Blues, purples, greens.
Browns and a lot of em ~, dark greys
Mice ears & tails
I dont really dislike that many things...
Be creative <3
Ugh i hate rules and i bet everyone else does too, these rules are simple
- Dont steal anything, that means design, lineart (Yes, that means make your own), ideas from others. (If i design looks way too similar too another one, i may disqualify the one that came after)
I Dont care if the lines look horrible, im looking at the design, not the lines.
Hey guys! I was thinking of making... How-to'sI frequently get asked for advice or 'how to' do things like start commissions, or a new account/pseudonym, or even art tutorials?Hey guys! I was thinking of making... How-to's2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Haha as for the art I'll hold that off for two main reasons,
1. I Just don't feel I'm up to the right caliber, if you will, to teach anything about shading and all that x3
2. Exactly the point above, I wouldn't want to give bad tips where there could be better; I still really don't like the way I shade for the most part!
There's only one thing I feel like I can do well out of everything else, and it has got to be designing haha :D
And since I'm not sure if I have time for a tutorial, as requested among the course of the last year haha x___X I might do those skype/livestream class sessions again? I've been getting quite a few requests for them.. I was thinking of just like a group call or livestream for an hour or so, for $3 per lesson/tutorial thing?
I'll give details on that later on if there's real interest, because it'll probably be easier

IMPROMPTU CONTEST TIME YAY
I decided I need a nice and big official "banner" type thing for the group’s front page, to go where the gorgeous pixel done by pandalecko currently resides.
- The image has to feature Mari (and Mari alone), the group’s official mascot. His ref:
- The image should also preferably feature the text „Club MTT“ on it. Variations like "Welcome to Club MTT" and such are welcome.
- The image should be about 800 px wide, or easily resizeable to that size. The image should be wider than it is tall, or of equal width and height at most.
- I think a backgroundless image would work best, but do whatever ya want, really.
- Submit your entries to the „Banner Contest Entries“ folder in ClubMTT
- You can indeed enter with more than one image.

ICON CONTEST EDITEdit: Have some more points now to give away, and seeing so many entries, im adding two new cathegories you can win in.ICON CONTEST EDIT2 years ago in Personal More Like This
8D I love icons, I love them so much *squirlms* So why not do a icon contest for them icon/pixel artists out there!
No bases allowed sorry. It has to be entierly your work.
Crisp pixel lines have a higher chance of winning.
You can do with or without background, that is up to you.
Choose one of my animal characters for the contest http://griffsnuff.deviantart.com/gallery/24055808
(snuffen and jonston has their own folders)
You can enter as many times as you want.
I will judge four diffrent parts, animated and non animated, Headshots and group icons. ( All these still needs to be 50x50, so if you are doing a group icon, all characters needs to be inside that spot, or it will count as seperate icons.

fernex are a race of earth born creatures with mammalian properties, with a splash of reptilian in there somewhere, and are a very modernized group of individuals that evolved its way up the food chain somewhere near 2480. their intelligence rivals with that of a dolphin but does not grant them the ability to speak all too well, as their vocal cords are not set the same way as a humans. please proceed to read the following;
they have a very lithe yet compact skinny build with about as much muscle mass as a professional runner
the necks vary in length and curvature depending upon the genetics of each individual but usually arent very long or windy and are normally stocky. the neck also has a stiff mane that starts near the nose and runs down the spine to the shoulders. the hair is usually often dyed with bright pigments and can be styled to rival the looks of modern hair cuts. the hair is always white to match the body w
Since everyone else is doing it (wannabe rant)Since is seems quite a few people are getting this out there I figured I'd throw this up here as well. I don't intend for this to be a rant or anything.

So... kind of a FAQ and kind of not.
Firstly: Please stop saying things like "All you popular artists are the same" or "I'm not popular enough to be your friend".
It's fucking annoying because not only does it sound like a pity trip it makes me feel bad for somehow gaining some stupid numbers. I don't know about you but I don't base who I like and who I don't on how popular they are. My 'recognition' on dA does nothing for me in the real world so it's not like I've magically gained celebrity status.
The reason I don't make a lot of friends is because I have issues with people and being used by them. It's nothing personal again
