Dice Dragon Facebook Giveaway!Hey guys! Been a while since I last posted. Life has been rather busy with the baby, so I've not sculpted much since the last sale. It will take a bit for me to get enough for another etsy sale... I'm guessing I'll have them more like once a month from now on, if I manage my time really well. I like to have close to 20 or so items for the sales, and I'm not really close to that at all yetDice Dragon Facebook Giveaway!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway! To the real point of this journal! I'm having a facebook giveaway to celebrate 10K watchers! Which is kind of funny because I surpassed that long ago here, unbeknownst to me for a quite some time. Holy crap there are a lot of you watching me! Over 25,000 now! That's...somewhat scary and neat and humbling all at once O_o
I wanted all my watchers here to have a chance at the facebook giveaway, so just head on over to my page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dragons-Beasties/171793226181832?ref=hl for the details. I AM limiting it to facebook directly, just easier to keep track of all the entr
Pattern Update!I am happy to share with you the results of my labors! Here is my latest mare pattern update, which is the biggest overhaul of my regular pattern that I've made in a while. I hope everyone likes the changes....they might not be as obvious to others as to me...unfortunately I didn't have a pony body using my previous pattern to take pictures next to for comparison.Pattern Update!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had spare Mango on hand so I made an AJ body! I'll probably finish it sometime and auction her. It turned out pretty much how I wanted - there are a few minor tweaks I want to make to the butt, but that's about it.
Let me know what you think!
5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Traditional and Digital art are both completely different mediums, able to create the same product. It is possible to paint a beautiful, watercolor-like painting digitally, as well as achieve the cleanliness and color options of a digital piece traditionally. Therefore, using one or the other to express ourselves creatively is, just like many things in life, just an option. People may have personal, sometimes even illogical reasons for using one or the other and that's fine. Today, however, I'm a cheerleader for the "traditional side", and I offer you 5 reasons to do it traditionally!
1. Oh the wonderful smell of art supplies > I'm not talking about the toxic smell that come painting techniques require, of course. Rather about the feeling you get when entering a huge art supply store, touching all those brand new pencils and tubes

NEW CONTEST! UPDATE: PLEASE READ!UPDATE 5/20/13: Deadline extended to JUNE 15TH 2013!NEW CONTEST! UPDATE: PLEASE READ!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And so, I have finally devised another contest! Due to popular demand, the theme will be "Helping Hand"! It's true that there are many things we can't do on our own, but it's so much easier and better when you have someone or many others to help you out! Take Hurricane Sandy for instance, homes were destroyed and lives were devastated. But, despite of the widespread destruction and devastation, everyone from all sides of the country pitched in and help the victims not only rebuild their homes, but restore happiness and harmony! So, with that being said, let me go over the contest's rules and info.
Contest Theme: Helping Hand
What to do: Draw/paint a scene where two or more people are helping one another. It doesn't have to be about the example above, but it could be something simple like, helping to bake a cake, or saving a kitty f

Design me a new dog character contest ($40 prize)Hey all! I have very few characters and I'm looking for more, so I thought I would run a little contest to see if I could rustle up a few creative designs from people! I'm not looking for anything super specific but I do have a couple of general guidelines.Design me a new dog character contest ($40 prize)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Must be a new design, on original lines.
-The ref must contain a full body shot and a headshot at minimum; if design is non-symmetrical, you need to showcase both sides.
-There will be one first prize of $40.
-If I like more than one design, I may award a second and/or third prize OR I might just buy the character outright from the designer.
-Designs that don't win are fully resellable.
-I reserve the right to end this contest with no winner if I don't particularly fancy any of the designs offered.
-If you need an extension, feel free to ask; I'll most likely say yes!
-Ends on June 25th as of right now.

Thank you Angels (Official Thank you from us)Waaah finally had finished some of my tasks and now had time to sit in the computer and open the net. A lot has happened and I am just so happy to tell all of you that my mom survived the surgery, we finally had paid the hospital bills, and mom is now home with us. Just some more tests about the cysts that were removed from her just to double check if its cancerous (though initial tests said its not) and mom is on full recovery! Still check ups from the doctors, the medicines and the vitamins and mom is gonna be okay. We will try our best to patch things up to ensure that all goes well.Thank you Angels (Official Thank you from us)2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Mary-Sue vs. Art ThieveryIf you've ever read my Mary-Sue guides (http://hatedlove6.deviantart.com/art/Mary-Sues-Part-1-185285110 and http://hatedlove6.deviantart.com/art/Mary-Sues-Part-2-204642883), then you know how I define them: "overly-underdeveloped characters who don't give off any feeling of three-dimensional depth or believability to the audience, who doesn't change in any way throughout the story, and somehow has a major influence over the other characters without doing much, or doing something that would be impossible for the character or the universe, time-period, or species."Mary-Sue vs. Art Thievery4 years ago in Personal More Like This
To me, Mary-Sues don't depend on cliches or certain physical traits, or even have to be good-looking. They are also not part in tracing or art thievery!
As a member of the :iconanti-sue-and-stu: group, I have received messages of submissions made by people, and frankly, I don't think they have any relevance to the group, and it just looks like bullying. I'll say it again, just because someone
