Photoshop TutorialHey my little deerlings!Photoshop Tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Remember that photoshop tutorial I mentioned long time ago I would do?
Well! I finally decided to start doing something about it! Last night, I wrote down a list of things I would like to talk about in it and I would like to tell you what I have planned. Because this will be multiple part tutorial, I won't be doing only one, but 3 or even 4 different tutorials.
Here are what I was planning to talk about in each part.
Part 1 - Getting to know Photoshop! Tips, tools and Tricks.
In this part, I would pretty much introduce you to photoshop and the tools that I use the most. I would teach you some of the most helpful tools and their shortcuts. Some words about layers and how to use them. And maybe something about filters and adjustments.
This is obviously not that important if you are already quite familiar with photoshop but you might learn something new. The main reason though is to make you familiar with some of the tools so I don't have to explain them in

Season finaleand it's impact on my character: Citrus SqueezeSeason finale3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So the character story goes like this:
She is an earth pony that wanted nothing more than to become a Princess when she was younger. She worked hard to be nice and do the right thing no matter what, always took responsibility even when something wasn't her fault and tried to cheer people up when they seems a little down. She held the belief that if she worked hard that she could achieve anything, just like her father told her. One day she went to class on show-and-tell day and brought her makeshift wings and horn that she made herself, telling everyone in her class that she was going to be a Princess when she grew up. The class bully, Snapdragon, started laughing and pointed out that a pony could never become a Princess, a privilege only given to Alicorns, and soon the whole class was laughing at her. Classmates she thought were her friends openly mocked her from that day forward, led by Snapdragon.
She became heartbroken and gave up her
Dragon Sculpt TutorialSo I've had a bunch of people ask me for some help on sculpting these little critters so I'm putting together this little tutorial to maybe help some of you out here that need a little tip here or there ;3Dragon Sculpt Tutorial1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So first off, instead of wasting a ton of clay, I like to take a piece of aluminum foil
Size depends on what size of critter your making and then I wrap it into roughly the shape of what I'm going to work on and position it how I want it to be
Not only do you not waste extra clay, but it's important so that when you make larger pieces your sculpture is strong enough to withstand the weight while baking. Next yo

Hope you are all doing good. I am w/o my camera for at least two weeks There where too many dust speckles on the mirror from the continuos changing between my two major lenses, and it was getting annoying to always remove those in PS and boy is it expensive to have the camera cleaned

The prices will start at 50 points/ 5 € and will depend on how much I have to do with the photo.
You show me your photo and let me know what you want and I will let you know how much points / US$ or € I will take

Cesar Millan? (personal opinion on the guy)What do you guys think of Cesar Millan or 'The Dog Whisperer'?Cesar Millan? (personal opinion on the guy)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Been watching some videos and been having some debates about his methods of training (which to me, being someone how has and does train dogs, are not as bad as people think).
The controversy that he hits/punches dogs or even uses tooth collars and shock collars is just stupid to me as well. He never comes on the show saying 'we're going to use this shock collar to control your dog', if anything he tries to discourage the use of these things for control of bad behaviors, showing owners they can gain control and stop bad behavior easily, without painful tools.
The fact remains that if a dog is aggressive and ready to hurt another dog or a human NOTHING will stop it, not a shock collar, not a choke chain, not a spike/tooth collar, or even a gate/fence. So the 'tools' used mean nothing, it's about presence, making the dog realize you are not a threat but you are also not a pushover.
His methods do work when done properly and wi
CONTEST - ENDED Sky´s NewsCONTEST - ENDED3 years ago in Personal More Like This
After the old contest wasnt really liked, I thought about what would maybe be fun to you guys to draw and also enjoyable for me to look at the entrys... also for my mom interesting :3
What I want for this contest : Family picture of my pets the rat Suki and my cat Lines :]
Whats wanted : Pictures of my rat Suki and / or my cat Lines! You can draw them together in a scene, or like a family photo or as single pets just posing or such, its rather free how you draw them.
You can do :
- Traditional art
- Digital art
You shouldnt do :
- Photo manipulations (because thats kind of weird for real existing pets...)
What can give you extra "points" when I come to rate the entrys :
- If they are both on one picture
- If they look rather realistic (I dont mean hyper-realism)
- If I can see that you putted some work into it, so not just sketchy but you really thought of something nice
Things that cheer me up when I'm feeling downSometimes when I start on a commission that's just the most incredible design I throw all "business sense" out of the window, ignore all advice from my advisor, eat 90% of the costs and go all out.Things that cheer me up when I'm feeling down2 years ago in Personal More Like This
These massive commissions often take months of meticulous work and emailing to get through and it renders my time down to nothing, my bank runs dry and my blogs and sites all start to look a bit dusty from a lack of updates. That's not so bad, but when things go wrong again and again and months start rolling by without spending money on myself or my pets it really starts getting me down. I start to worry, I start getting cranky, I get nervous that the lack of updates means I'll lose all the people who are interested in my work. I see incredible artists uploading new work every week, sometimes twice a week, and I wonder how on earth they find the time to do that and lead a normal life. I see work by someone who has made their first art doll that is MILES better than anything I could ever do a

Ib 1.04!Hello everyone! You guys may not know me, since I don't post journals, but I'm ToxiicLolita and I help out in the group^^Ib 1.04!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, as the title says, there is a new and updated version of Ib!
From vgperson's tumblr:
"Over a year after the release of version 1.02 (and a little less than a year after the release of my translation), Ib has been updated to version 1.04. (1.03 was an intermediate version: 1.02 with smaller filesize, and it was only available on compilation CDs and stuff.)
I may post a complete list of changes later, but here are the big ones:
- The music is compressed, so the filesize is smaller. (About time.)
- There are new paintings and conversations to find in old areas.
- A new branch is available that leads to two new endings.
- After any good ending (read: Ib escapes), you can start the game over, keeping track of your endings and such.
- After you beat the game once and continue as mentioned above

Back from my hiatus...I know it's been quite a while (almost a year!) since I've been on dA and Tumblr but I just wanted to let you guys know I'm going to be drawing again! (: Most of you guys might be wondering what I've been up during my 'hiatus'. To be frank, I was occupied by both university and personal/family reasons. While I'm not quite ready to share personal/family situations, my first term @ uni was brutal. I was so frustrated and stressed with exams and midterms that I simply didn't have the motivation to come back. There were so many times I wished I could draw or post a reply to everyone, but I felt that I needed to wait for the right moment! (:Back from my hiatus...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
