June 1, 2014: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
Greetings, everyone. I'm Isabelle the Growlithe of TheTownHall. Here is the most recent and utterly important information I can share with you...
I, Isabelle, am here to let everyone know of a very important announcement: PKMN-Crossing is retiring and will be closed off as of today (June 1, 2014) onward. This news may not be surprising to some, while to others it may provide a range of different emotions.
Though there was a summer opening planned to accept new members, the steady decline in activity since late 2013 has led the town council to believe it would be best not to open Pokette's doors again; rather, all aspects of the group will be shutting down. This includes the group's deviantArt chat rooms, member removal, and all official PKMN-Crossing submissions will be stored in my filing cabinets. I kindly request that anybody who may have

Year 2013 Retrospect and Happy New Year 2014Happy new year my little deerlings! Less 9 hours (here in Finland) until year 2014! Aren't you all excited?!Year 2013 Retrospect and Happy New Year 20142 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I promised a journal about my thoughts about the year 2013. This is mostly for yours truly but if you are curious to read a part of my life story... Gather around! Gather around! Aunt Tammy is gonna tell ya all a story! It is based on true events! And scary! Well, not scary.... It's more like a life documentary... I am still working on it... I'm aiming for an Oscar. Yeah.
SO, year 2013! Boy what a year! Where do I start? I think we need to go back all the way to the year 2012. The nightmare before Christmas eve day. I remember it clearly. Because I was crying myself to sleep. Yes, that night, I was feeling down. HARD! I dunno what triggered it but all the bad feelings just came rushing into me. I felt like I was worthless. Not sure what the heck I wanted to do with my life. (I was finishing school at the time and I had no idea what to do next.) I felt ugly...Stupid..
Self Censorship and Feeling Judged.Im sharing this around because its something I feel extremely strong about. I wont sit idly by and let good artists be strongarmed into feeling jugded, second guessing and self censoring (removing from portfolio) their own work.Self Censorship and Feeling Judged.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you feel that way, my message to you is this:
I received some really troubling PM's today. Please don't feel you need to self-censor your work if you enjoy making pinups / sexy girls. Don't remove it from your folios, and never, ever, second guess what you enjoy spending your free time making. Especially don't feel judged because you appear to not be a champion of a cause of any kind. Regardless of how prominant of an artist you are, or where you work in our industry, your free time, is YOURS. Feel free to express who you are, NOT who other people think you should be.
Your eternal friend,
Tips for Spontaneous Portrait Photography Making the Most of Portrait PhotographyTips for Spontaneous Portrait Photography5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It's that time of year - everybody who is anybody is getting their airmiles on and jetting off somewhere exotic right? Soggy weekends in Cornwall definitely count! But aside from topping up a tan or getting a healthy dose of clean air in a mountain range, what else can you achieve from a holiday?
The possibilities...artistically...are endless! And whether or not you are going abroad or staying in your home town the opportunities to create some Travel Portrait Photography can present themselves at any moment.
Besides if you aren't going anywhere this season - let the interesting people come to you!
So where do you start? You can achieve awesome portraiture with anything as simple as a digital point and shoot. But in SLR terms a 35mm camera is the best to create portraits.

The Veil of IdentityThe internet is an interesting place, with tons of exciting things to browse through everywhere. However, at the same time, it is a dangerous place since there is a bunch of uncertainty hidden behind the veil of identity.The Veil of Identity3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Despite of that, many people have shaped false images for themselves, regardless of using the masks to protect themselves or to fool others. In other words, their internet counterparts are not themselves at all in a lot of occasions. Are you one of them?
For me, I will admit that I don't disclose every single thing about myself. Those are often very personal or are something that a complete stranger should not know. Apart from that, I can say that I am basically me, regardless of being over the net or in real life.
However, I typically find it difficult to trust people over the net. Although there is a

Okay, okay no. First I model the pony up in 3DS Max. That's right, no lifting free models off the internet—we custom-model these toys to order. I export the model, and then it gets converted into code for the printer.

For example, all character bios will be redrawn and updated! Current ones are old and the info is outdated so they need an update. Plus the art is old and I never really liked the bio sheets (even though everyone else seem to love them since I see so many pokemon bios in similar style). So, that is one thing I am planning to do.
Next, some character designs will change... Now now! Nothing too dramatic! To be hone

History Repeats ItselfLast week a Connecticut action group going by the name of SouthingtonSOS held a video game burning event where local citizens were encouraged to bring various forms of violent media to be burned in a dumpster, no doubt a reaction to the recent Connecticut shooting.History Repeats Itself3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wish I could say I am surprised about this, but sadly the whole media frenzy surrounding violence in video games and movies reminds me of something that already happened once and profoundly affected the media it was accusing: Comic books.
During the early days of comic books, things occasionally got a little risqué. EC Horror comics in particular delighted in rendering extremely gruesome images and disturbing themes in their comics, which were being sold to children unbeknownst to their parents (because naive parents at the time had no reason to suspect comics might contain "inappropriate" material). However all that changed in 1954.

Anyway, there are some things I want to talk about. In recent days, I've gotten quite many questions about Random Doom and when I am gonna update it and/or if I have stopped making it. People ask this even in my group related art! Which I honestly find a bit rude....
Groups... I'll get back to them in a bit but I need to say something first... I am and I try to be very positive person. But honestly... I've been feeling quite sad... Quite sometime. I know I don't show it and honestly I don't want to bother you people with my personal issues but... I've been feeling bad these days. And this is because of this whole Random Doom vs Group art. I LOVE the groups I am in and the people I have met through them and creating art for them is really enjoyable.

Well, here are a collection of codes and tips you can use in your journal, to make it look as pretty as many other journals around deviantART.
How to add images to your journal
< img src="source URL" alt="Image Description" />
remember to remove the spaces in the code when you're using it
The source URL is the URL of the picture you want to include, and the image description will be shown if the image, for some reason, cannot be loaded. Please also don't forget the trailing />. If you forget it, problems like your text not being properly aligned might occur.
Images you wish to place in your journal must be hosted offsite, either on your own webspace, or utilizing one of the image hosting services like Photobucket.com.
If you want to add thumbs from deviantArt, you use the code : thumb#### : to your journal.
You have to replace the #### with the numbers from the deviation URL.

and now that we got it out of the way, have you remembered to smile today?
We fight, a lot. against many odds, against many people, we fight for love, life, future, dreams. Sometimes it's hard, but that's alright. It's ok to lose a battle, but it's not ok to lose your spirit. It's ok to realize that sometimes we're weak, but it's not ok to give up.
Fight! you're worth it, fight for the life you know you deserve.
there are things we wish didn't happen, things we regret we did, but those lessons shape us, the people we are today, are the result of our past
