Featured Artist - Bobby DriscollBest known to Disney fans as the voice of Peter Pan!
Bobby Driscoll lived a very short, rollercoaster life.
He was discovered as a natural actor in a barbershop at the very young age of five-and-a-half! And, he was the first actor to sign a long term contract with the Walt Disney animation department.
At the age of 12, he was given an Oscar for outstanding juvenile actor for his performances in So Dear to my Heart (A Disney Movie) and The Window (RKO Picture).
At about the age of 16, Bobby Driscoll played his most famous roll - Peter Pan. He acted out all the parts himself before they were animated onto film. He was also the first boy ever to play Peter Pan (traditionally, Peter Pan is played by a girl.)
Here are some production pictures for y'all!
Unfortunately, life doesn't always have a fairytale ending for us like in the magical world of Disney. ;_;
Bobby Driscoll was introduced to drugs at the age of seventeen, had several run-ins with the law, and was sentenc

Commissions - OPEN!Commissions are OPEN!Commissions - OPEN!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
This trimester at school is looking to be expensive again, so commissions are open!
This is a limited opening, I will take no more than three at a time. This is not a first come first serve basis. Send me a note with the details of your commission and I will let you know if I'm interested.
FYI: I'm getting really near to closing commissions forever.
My career in chiropractic is mounting (I'll be in clinic in less than a year), and I simply won't have time or drive to draw things for other people anymore. I will likely only do a handful more of these openings throughout the next few months, so don't wait if you want some artwork from me!
PayPal or Money Order ONLY.
I do not take point commissions.
I do not to art for free.
Prices are negotiable! These are just approximations! Prices

In the Judge's Section
What the judges were saying: The sheer amount of detail in the characters that're included here is amazing! This piece blew us back to our 90's Saturday mornings. A great looking piece all around!
What the judges were saying: The judges adored how well Wickfield mimicked the style of the Hercules movie but also put in her own flare and gorgeous costumes. A stunning artwork!
The only entry to take a young couple and age them into newly weds, and adorable designs at that! The judges could totally see this being how Eilonwy and Taran would be if they got married. Very creative and true to the style of the movie. ^.^

The Happy World of Haribo...oh...OH...OH, GOD!!!I like to take a bag of Haribo gummy sweets with me when I go to the cinema. It's cheaper than buying the over-priced rot they sell in the foyer, and thanks to the industrial waste they're quite obviously made from; it can take the length of a movie to chew through a bag of the things.The Happy World of Haribo...oh...OH...OH, GOD!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I may, however, have to rethink gnawing this brand of confection in light of an article that just popped up: http://www.buzzfeed.com/michaelrusch/haribo-gummy-bear-reviews-on-amazon-are-the-most-insane-thin
Glad I didn't take a bag of those in with me when I went to see The Hobbit.

A word of two about drawing wolf's eyes :)Hello dear Members,A word of two about drawing wolf's eyes :)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is my first journal entry for the Group, so first of all: howdy to all
I wanted to do something that could help you a little with drawing wolves. So I will begin with something I am familiar with in drawing - the eyes. Many of you are suprised when, for example, their blue-eyed wolves are declined from "Realistic Wolves" folder, so maybe a few words about natural wolf eye's colours for a warm-up
Most popular colour is yellowish-green or greenish-yellow which can look differenty in various light's conditions. Great example of that colour is Chetan from WolfPark:
Take a look at wonderful Orca, he's eyes have also rather pale, but more yellow than green shade and come to life in bright light:

Girls Collab - CLOSED! The list of remaining characters is at the very bottom of the page under "suggestions".Girls Collab - CLOSED!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
All the required characters have been turned in, so that means the final due date is one month from now on February 6th.
You can still sign up for characters, but the due date for any character is February 6th, even if you sign up a week before that day.
Also, since we only have one month left, people who've reached their max amount of charcters can do a few more if they wish. Let's say... three more if they so choose.
For this collab, we will be drawing all the Disney girls we can!
:iconattention-plz: PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE SIGNING UP! I don't want you to draw a character and not be allowed in because you missed a rule. ;_;
Any girl character can only be in the collab once. In other words, if someone has already taken her, then you can't sign up for her.
When we're done, Zimeta will put together all the individual girl
The Three problems with how we learn art: pt.3I've been thinking about how and why we learn to draw for a few years now. I started self-analazing my own drawing and character design thought process when I began writing my first art instruction book, "Creating Characters with Personality". It was harder than I thought to verbalize how I've learned and how I process drawing. This has led me to start looking back at my artistic life and how I learned art. What made me learn the most? What drove me to draw and stick with it? What led to others I knew as a child to stop drawing? I think I'm ready to present some of those thoughts here on DA and hear what you think. This is part 2 of three in a series. I'm not sure where this is leading, but step one is my establishing an online art instruction school called Taught ByA PRO (http://www.taughtbyapro.com) that will (in phase one) concenThe Three problems with how we learn art: pt.31 year ago in Personal More Like This

Advice for prospective convention organisersRecently, I was asked on Twitter for advice for a prospective convention organiser. Here are some tidbits I wish somepony had told me around a year ago, before I started BronyCon (and long before I stepped down due to my distaste for sauropodian interference). The below is adapted and expanded from my Tweets.Advice for prospective convention organisers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
 Have lots of money.
 Be prepared to lose it.
 Have a good psychotherapist.
 Invite local brony celebs as guests before you get to the stage where you can invite VAs and show staff.
 Dealing with a multibillion-dollar toy company (you know which one I mean) is like dancing with a dinosaur.
 Be prepared to spend 40 hours a week working on the convention.
 Be prepared to not see a penny for it.
 Be prepared for conventiongoers to think you're getting filthy rich anyways.
 Any ticket cost is 'too high'. (See )
 You can't please all of the ponies all of the time. No matter what decision you make, somepony will HATE it. Furthermore, many of those will
