Hello, vanilleass here for some updates! As you may have noticed, the group is ungoing some changes! I'm currently working on the front page while Spashai is working the backgrounds for the Gallery. Other than that, I'll also be making a new journal skin for the group and removing some journal entries. The VIP Membership program will be stopped as it is barely used so anyone who still has a running membership will be given 1000 ED. The Trading /Offers/Breeding journal will be separated into three parts soon to better organize each part. Since it does get confusing. shadowthecat971 has been working on coming up with new Challenges for everyone to earn more ED! ^^ Lastly, I'll be removing the Project Unknown Event Journals as we dont need them anymore.
Onto events, this year we'll be holding two Halloween events (since I LOVE Halloween). One event will be a pet designing event where one has to design a

Thomas and John Knoll: the brothers behind the magic
Back in 1987, Thomas Knoll was working on his Ph.D. thesis as part of his studies on image processing at the University of Michigan. He had bought a new Apple Mac Plus to help with the thesis, but was frustrated by the fact the computer wouldn't display greyscale images on the monochrome monitor. This issue wouldn't stop him and so he decided to write his own code in order to be able to see the images in his new computer.
His brother John was coincidentally working for ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) on image processing at the time and discovered Thomas' code during a holiday visit. Clearly impressed by his brother's achievements, both began collaborating on a bigger applic
Let me love you.Today I talked with a woman who's daughter I knew since we were kids. This girl was always introverted, really shy. And half the time I figured people didn't even notice she was there. But I noticed. We became this awkward sort of 'friends' our sophomore year of high school all the way up to graduation.Let me love you.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Her mother told me today that she is still backwards and pretty awkward around people but she's getting better. I assured her that I tried to bring her daughter out of her shell, and she smiled and said to me, "Oh I know—she talked about you everyday after school. Kayla did this, Kayla said that. Kayla brought me into this prank…"
( Sidenote: We taped printed out pictures of kittens all over our history teachers classroom.)
I always figured she thought I was annoying and merely put up with me.
But now, all I can think is, "Wow—someone thought I was awesome enough to tell the closest people to them about. MEEEEE."

i have always been a huge fan of art books. in fact i would say that 99 percent of my bookshelves are filled with art books ranging from animation to fashion design and everything visual in between. it was partly why i am so excited to have produced my own book, Walking Your Octopus. one of my goals with this project was to create an art book that was also an art object and this vision guided every aspect of the book's production. as we all know ebooks are becoming more and more popular and i struggled with how my book which was a celebration of all things analog might fit into the digital space. fortunately my very creative friend eric, had the solution...Aereoscope.

looking back to about a year ago i had doodled a very rough sketch in my sketch book of a girl walking an octopus. and when i say rough i mean rough. the sketch itself was nothing more than a study of contrasting silhouettes. i was drawn to the play between a very rigid character and a squiggly one.
i had forgotten about that sketch until i heard about a steampunk t-shirt design for www.welovefine.com. i thought that this design might have a chance so i went ahead and finished it off. well it got alot of attention and i am happy to say that it won the competition. the shirt started to sell

REMEMBER THAT city or local ordinances still prevail over all these laws. If the city or county in which you live prohibits the possession of such an animal where you live, you would be in violation of local ordinances. To find out the laws in each city and county, you would need to check with each entity individually.
UK-England, Scotland, etc:
you do not require a permit or any other paper work as they are not on the DWAL list.
as for paperwork there is none which is a bonus to living in the UK plus you can move anywhere you want in the UK and you can take your furry friend with you.

Cephius Information (Original Species)Basic information about the Cephius Original Species:Cephius Information (Original Species)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
● Cephius is a closed species
● Adopted characters may be used for personal, roleplay, and original stories purposes
● You are free to modify the designs of the characters you own
● You are by no means obliged to follow the information listed (you are free to adapt the information / story to your own liking)
The most prominent features of a Cephius are its single or double halos, usually located around their ears, and cross-shaped patterns on their ears and/or skin. The colour of the halo(s) and cross patterns differ from individual to individual, and occasionally a Cephius may be an exception who lacks one of these traits. Many of them exibit the dominant white pupil phenotype. During development, Cephius are encased inside a wing-shaped womb. The wings are shed off after birth, and remnant wing scars remain on their backs.

Astrophotography- Some Of Your Questions AnsweredI have got to a point on this site that I am literally being inundated with questions about how I do some of my photos. I simply do not have time to answer them all in full individually anymore. It is seriously restricting the free time that I have to pursue this hobby and take those pictures that have become so popular (both on here and elsewhere). So for my well being and hopefully to the benefit of those who ask me so many questions, I am doing this write up.Astrophotography- Some Of Your Questions Answered3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I get into some questions though, I want to make a few things clear. I have spent a lot of time and money on trying to learn as much as I can to better myself with this style of photography. I love all forms of astrophotography and I really think I have found my niche. I hope to one day soon start making back a bit of that money I have spent. So I am not going to just reveal everything I have worked so hard to learn. What I am going t

Over the years I’ve had a pretty straightforward view on gun control. Guns are dangerous and need to be restricted and made more inaccessible to prevent future acts of gun violence. I’ve never genuinely believed in the idea of banning all guns because I do think people DO need to have ways to protect themselves.
However, I’ve recently been thinking more about a different aspect to the gun control debate and it’s broader implications to other troublesome politically charged areas of our (United States) cult
They aren't better than you.I don't soapbox often, but I feel the need to say something to all my fellow artists... because I've had to struggle with this, and I know many (if not all) of you do, too.They aren't better than you.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Being on a site like this, with so much collaboration and so many artists of different styles and skills, can be both great and terrible for artists. Like myself, you probably have artists that you follow because they inspire you, because you 'wish you could draw as well as them'. It's impossible to draw without inspiration from something, and it's very hard to improve if you don't have examples for you to learn new techniques and ways to approach art.
But as easy as it is to find inspiration here, it's even easier to find discouragement.
I'm not surprised artists are statistically some of the most depressed people, for several reasons. The first is that, especially for those who do art for money, we have the issue of having so much stress placed on us because everything we do is going to be scrutinized and evaluate

Back to Basics Photography - Understanding RawdSLR cameras and most bridge cameras have the option to shoot in raw, but what exactly is it and what are the benefits? Let me attempt to explain.Back to Basics Photography - Understanding Raw2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A camera raw file contains all the data that is captured when the shutter button is pressed whereas a JPEG is compressed and a lot of the data is lost. They are often called digital negatives as they serve the same purpose as the negatives in film photography; they are not ready to be used as the final image, but hold all the information and data needed to produce one. This all means that you are left with a higher image quality which also allows you to have more control and manipulate more parameters than a JPEG. All of the metadata is also still in tact, meaning that the original state can always be referred back to if needed.
So, surely you want to see the difference, right? Well you're in luck.

Fuck 911I remember watching the events of September 11 unfold live, and being very upset and disturbed by them.

Today, I saw the following image shared on Facebook by a friend, and it inspired me to write this post.
It's always important to see the big picture, and not miss the forest for the trees. Since 911 roughly, 100,000,000 people have died from hunger, which is a total of 30,000 911's in the last 11 years or over seven 911's per day. You tell me what is worse one: 911 in 11 years, or seven of them EVERY DAY.
But it's so mundane, and boring - right? Who cares about dirty little children dying in dirty little countries you can't even locate on the map. Almost nobody. This is not a rhetorical question, or speculation - it's a statement of fact. You don't really care, and I
