If the pallet is the same as someone elses character you are a thief!
Generic cat and dog species are totally original! [And by that I mean you draw a dog or cat, put wings on it and call it a species]
Joke are now 100% insults!
Never question anything it'll only lead to unnecessary trouble! OR Never ask questions because someone will be insulted!
If you don't pander to the fandoms no one really cares about your art!
If you're not able to draw realistically, you better have a good style or people will still not care!
If you want to be popular do the two things above this!
Tracing is totally fine!
If they're not popular, steal from them, chances are no one will notice!
Having emotions is now a form of attention whoring!
Never say anything about genders!
Got trouble? Move accounts!
DeviantART can cause stress and depression!

How I Got Started...A journal entry from a friend prompted me to think about my beginnings as a mask maker. When I started making masks about 25 years ago (wow!) it was totally on a whim. I was born drawing. My fantasy art, when I was a kid, was pretty standard stuff (dragons, unicorns, things with wings) but I always had a good sense of design and color. I'd been dabbing in leather art...doing tooling on archery bracers and things of that nature. Nothing particularly spectacular or uncommon really but it ~was~ a good thing that I concentrated on tooling and carving first because I perfected my technique in that respect long before the masks happened.How I Got Started...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Back then, NO ONE made masks out of heavy leather with detailed tooling. It just wasn't done. Masks of leather were either thick and plain or thin and swirly/curly in the Venetian style. People used molds for the thick masks, and molds press and mar carving. People used their hands shaping the thin leather, but obviously the thin leather wasn't suitabl
Addiction is a Mental IllnessOnce an addict, always an addictAddiction is a Mental Illness7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I grew up surrounded by people who threw themselves into drugs and alcohol to escape the realities of their lives, or with the hopes that their addiction might finally kill them.
Alcohol and narcotics are two of the most dangerous addictions we come in contact within our lives, and also, two of the most tempting ones to delve into.
Few can say that they haven't had a drink after a bad day, or perhaps popped a pill, smoked a spliff, to relax after stressful times. However, while many are able to have a taste and stay in control, many are not so lucky. Addictions come without real warning, what starts out as fun and recreational use can turn into severe addiction, and once you're in, it's almost impossible to find a way out.
Addictions are not to be romanticized
The romanticizing of addictions has always been incredibly common. Movies often make it look "badass", people want to be that cool edgy kid who's experienced it

You know what annoys me with Fiolee some times?Some of the fanwork...specially the comics and fanfictions. I'm not going to point out which ones but I see this a lot:You know what annoys me with Fiolee some times?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Fionna likes Gumball
-Gumball rejects her (This usually is in a very out of character way they do it, making him come off as an ass usually or "leading her on" at first)
-Fionna is sad
-Marshall comforts her because he's always LUV'D HER.
-He admits feelings
-OUT OF NO WHERE FIONNA LIKES HIM AND FORGETS GUMBALL
Or replace all the above with Flame Prince (but they're actually together and he's being a jerk).
Or all the boys fighting over Fionna and Fionna is conflicted...
Or you know what? Best way to describe this is people writing as though this is some teenage romance or a shojo manga...
Why am I ranting? Because I never do and Fionna is probably one of the few female characters now days who is a STRONG female character and people just like to shit on that with typical romance bull. I'd like to believe Fionna is a bit more complicated than that.
Yeah ok I'm ranting

Thank you all for entering.
Hey there, watchers! I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your kindness and support - it motivates me to keep creating! I thought it would be nice to do a little giveaway as a way to say thanks.
I have a number of older dragons that have been searching for a loving home. They tend to get passed over because, let's face it, they don't really measure up to my more recent work. Here they are:

I'll run this until 11:59pm Friday October 4th, Pacific time. The winner will be chosen via random number generator, and will notified by note. I will also post the result to this journal entry. The
Smoothing, Sanding, & Buffing Polymer ClaySmoothing, Sanding, and Buffing polymer clay is definately something that you don't hear a lot about in the younger polymer clay community, but it certainly does make your pieces look a lot better in the long run. If you smooth, sand, and buff your clay AND add a layer of varnish - watch out, your pieces will look as bright, beautiful and glossy as a piece of delicious candy.Smoothing, Sanding, & Buffing Polymer Clay6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Have you ever noticed that translucent clay really isn't THAT translucent? Well, if you smooth, sand, and buff it - you'll be seeing differently! It really DOES get see-through!
Give these tips a try, and although I can't guarantee that you will get it right the first time, practice makes perfect, and sometimes new techniques take a little getting used to before you find a way that works the best for you.
Smoothing your clay is what you do to your clay before you bake it. Running your fingers along the surface and smoothing out bumps and impurities can work wonders on a piece and give it a ve
Calling all Fashionistas!So, as some of you guys may have noticed, I'm drawing my own Adventure Time comic (Pfft, who am I kidding, it's probably the only reason why you guys are even watching me), where Fionna goes to school in casual clothing. And as some of you may also know, I'm not exactly very 'creative,' or 'imaginative,' or 'good at designing,' so here I am asking you guys who are able to design to draw and whip up your own outfit ideas for Fionna, Marshall Lee, FP, Gumball, Pen or any other character who's already made an appearance in my comic if you want to, and want to get your ideas expressedCalling all Fashionistas!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You can design any type of outfit. casual, formal, semi-formal, child's, business, summer, winter, etc. etc.

''I love you'' in Japanese... Taken from http://misaki-toyodome.tumblr.com/post/57277448434/lets-ask-a-japanese-person-i-love-you''I love you'' in Japanese...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
''I love you'' in Japanese - more complicated than you think.
The concept of love in Japanese is quite complex because the Japanese have always preferred understatement and nuance rather than outright declarations to convey their feelings.
1. ''Daisuki'' literally means ''I like very much'' and can be used to refer to things as well as people. And yes, you can use it for the person you are in love with as well. It's a pretty standard way of saying ''I love you/it'', but it's still seen as quite a bold statement of a person's feelings.
2. The phrase ''Aishiteru'' is very modern and is never seen in historical texts. The kanji 愛 does mean 'love' and it has existed for a long time. However, the

These kits will include everything you need to make one of the following:
Chibi Wolpertinger , chibi Jackalope or a chibi Gemstone Dragon
The kits will include instructions, (cut?) fabric pieces, and in the case of Wolpertingers and Jackalopes a plastic nose or an acrylic gem for the Gemstone Dragons.
Considering the super positive response plush kits will happen!
These will probably not be available until January or so, unless I suddenly find myself with lots of free time to create the instructions after I move in about a week and a half. These would be available in limited numbers, just so I don't spend entire weeks cutting out pieces instead of working on commissions ahah.

The Allure of a Red Dress
Maybe it’s being the color of blood that makes red such a strong color, especially when displayed in public. It is exotic–a matador’s cape, or a vampire’s, or a flamenco dancer’s skirts. Most women have their “little black dress” for evening’s out. Black tells no secrets. It’s on the occasion of the “red dress” that we suddenly wonder what’s on the someone’s mind.
The message of “red” in novels, films and music is passion barely controlled, of sexual temptation. It is a flashing warning light. Plastic surgery made John Dillinger
