BABY LIONS - photos! But I am ill now :(Hi people!BABY LIONS - photos! But I am ill now :(3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yesterday I went to ZOO Olomouc with my great friend amrodel - she has never been to this ZOO and because it is one of my the most favorite animal facilities, I really wanted to show her! And because amrodel is a lion lover and because baby lions were born in Olomouc, we could not have a better opportunity to meet! It is always a pleasure to see :devamrodel and we really had fun. It was fantastic to watch whole lion family - father imon was so desperate, because his babies wanted to play with his tail! He really seemed very unhappy about it. But we had fun.
Thank you for great meeting and for a great present (amrodel gave me a printed version of her famous and beautiful photo of my beloved wolf Lobo), friend
In the ZOO, I saw also something which took my breath away - I will show you later!
But after I got back, I got some leight gastric problems. I had them also today, but it was very far from anything serious. But during this eve

The #165 XNALara/XPS release
4 years ago 20. Feb. 2009, XNALara version 1.0 was born,
developed by :icondusanpavlicek:, the original creator of XNALara.
Now, 164 versions later http://xnalara.home-forum.com/t170-xnalara-xna-posing-studio-latest-version , XNALara/XPS 10.9.5 will support Speech Bubbles
I know it would be a lot of work, with a new menu needed, etc - so I don't hold my breath ! But it would beat having to save each image and load them into a tool like Photoshop or Movie-maker to add the subtitles...
... We love a XPS that would give more support to story-tellers. You too? ...
Today as a birthday gift for the community.

CONTEST TIME!!! Design me a wolf! Update! Hello everyone, I've gotten in a good amount of entries so far! Please keep them up!!!CONTEST TIME!!! Design me a wolf!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you may know, I am in the process of creating a comic called King Of The Currupaw http://sedillio.deviantart.com/art/King-Of-The-Currumpaw-Cover-334525655 It's about the real life tale of a legendary wolf named Lobo, who is the reason that Americans have created wildlife and nature conversations that we still have today! He really was amazing and his story has been told throughout the decades. There have been movies and other comics of his story, but none are really from his perspective so I thought it's be an interesting project to work on for my favorite wolf hero!
Lobo was the alpha of a incredible wolf pack that terrorized settlers and farmers of the old American west for quite sometime! The pack outsmarted even the most seasoned trappers and were know to slaughter fields of livestock in a single night. I could have created every one of hi

art tips? I get asked a lot to make tutorials, to teach people this or that when it comes to art, or a certain thing I like to draw.art tips?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not a teacher, or an expert guys. I am just some random chick who likes to draw a lot and who practices drawing a lot. I don't think I would be very good at teaching or explaining. I cannot give out information like a teacher would. On paws or anatomy. I am no expert. However, I do give advice though, and my advice is usually the same.
If you want to draw a certain animal, research the animal. Watch documentaries, look up anatomy sketches, and photographs that inspire you. Even inspiring art, something that puts you in the mindset and gives you understanding of the animal. Research the animal inside and out to get the full understanding of it's anatomy, movements, attitude, weight, expressions, body language, markings, proportions, everything. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Learn it all. And then sketch and sketch an

Your Dream MapMy friend has dragged me out for coffee meeting and inspired me with very creative, motivating idea- to create your Inner Map of Dreams, which was based from the coaching workshops.Your Dream Map1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This is a part of your inner self training, organizing what is going on in your mind and a little step with your "Personal Legend" pathway. After doing that small excerise, I've felt so pleasant in myself like floating in clouds despite of my grumpy mood, by imagining that I already did what I dreamt for. After all, it's really fun to do :]
What you have to do is to collect pictures (anything, from magazines, photography or even artwork; you can cut out from magazines or print them out) that represent your thoughts, passions and what you want dream to do/or to be.
Find your life inspirations.
Cut them out and glue everything on your piece of paper. That paper sheet is your MAP and you'd have to fill your map with your "dreams". Those cutout pieces are parts of your dreams, i.e. pict
More Critical Thoughts on Art School + Career PathHey everyone, thanks for the info on San Francisco for those who live in / near there. It's a big thing for me to still be thinking about, so I'll definitely be coming in for a visit before I make any final decisions.More Critical Thoughts on Art School + Career Path3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Elsewhere, I've been meaning to do a short rant dealing with how I feel retrospectively having gone to art school. I've talked about having gone before, and I've given some advice about choosing a school that's right for you should you choose to go. But you know, having been out for a couple years now, there are a few glaring problems I see not just from the school I attended, but apparently from many schools nationwide. And this deals with offering students a clear path of study for the often specialized career they are looking to get into. Areas of art such as (concept) design, animation, comics/storyboarding/sequential, full-time freelance, and all-over jobs related to working in industry-level professional positions, or in a teamwork-oriented studio setting.

Points Commissions DetailsAsk me if I'm available for commissions via note or comment.Points Commissions Details4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I do points commissions! Send me a note if you want one and we'll discuss the details. More info on pricing/examples are listed below. All prices are negotiable. Scroll down to see my policy/guarantee. * I use points to buy my DA subby, give away points/buy subbies for friends, donate points in contests, and am pretty all around generous.
All commissions must be paid for after the sketch stage is approved (if the commissioner asks to see the sketch, otherwise commissions must be paid for in advance). If the commission IS for a sketch, it must be paid for in advance.

How does it work?
If you are familiar with the horse personality randomizer that Dane made together with some other DA'ers, then it's kinda in the same direction. You will see a couple of lists that together will make a guideline to draw something. Some combination absolutely do not make sense, but just click the random button again to make a better option.

Keeping him inside now would not work... yet. But one thing after the other. He now has to learn how to trust me again and I promise to do my very best.

I am someone who might be called a "cineaste" - because it's true. I friggin' LOVE movies. I love watching them, collecting them, doing research, listening to audio commentaries and learning about the backgrounds. And i always had a soft spot for animated motion pictures. Still do. Disney is awesome, so is Dreamworks and the not so wellknown ones.
Lately i went through my DVD-Collection once more and...i just realised again how MUCH i despise the awful covers that go along with most of the animated movie DVD releases. Especially when i recall the original theatrical posters - which are all (design wise) of sheer BRILLIANCE, full of power and emotion and actually dignify the movie's content. Not to be compared with the cheap DVD covers. Little comparison for you to see what i mean - because i felt like doing one.

Joan of Arc
Joan of Arc (1412—1431) is the ultimate iconic rebellious teenager. In nineteen years she lived a fuller and more exciting life, effecting the future histories of the two most powerful nations on Earth, than most can even dream of, and then died a martyr’s death for her cause and beliefs, for which she was declared a saint 500 years later. Her story has been told in many novels, movies and comic books. She was the girl who God gave a mission to drive the occupying English out of northern France. So fervid was her demand for action that she was made an advisor to the French high command and led them to victory after victory in the cause of F

What do we need to shoot a Street picture?
1. A camera
Whatever kind of a camera is good. Either it is a ridiculously expensive rangefinder or an unbelievably cheap point and shoot compact. Either it shoots digital or it shoots film. Either it weighs a ton or it weighs few grams. ANY camera is fine as long as you have it with you.
2. A public place
This can be out in the streets or at the beach or inside a hotel's lounge or in a diner place or inside a supermarket or a mall or a school or whatever PUBLIC place. This public place must be visible in our picture. And things must be happening in this public place.
Exactly, people! We need people in candid situations. Definition of "candid" from Merriam-Webster's online dictionary: "subjects acting naturally or spontaneously without being posed" Definition of "candid" from Wikipedia: Candid photography is best described as un-

Over night I have gotten really sweet notes by nice people here who offered help with the allergy thing.... thank you very much! You know who you are and I really apprecuiate your thoughts and ideas.
Unfortunately I got even more notes telling me to keep the cat, not understanding what this is all about. So I am telling you know:
I have several allergies against several things already, be it fur of guinea pigs, pollen, antibiotics or food or even dust. Those are just a few examples of many.... believe me, many allergies. Being stung by a wasp or even eating a fresh apple will kill me within minutes. I am on antihistamine pills pretty much all of the year, so my symptoms are reduced... but they are never fully gone.
I have this since I am a small child. There have been times I could not leave the house in spring, because I had bad bad asthma because of the pollen and believe me, this is hard for a child, when your friends may play outside in the s
