Dimensions Wanderers Contest!
That there is more than one world we are living in. And naturally it`s possible to wander between dimensions to pick one that you like the most! Isn`t that sweet? I know, it is.
It`s usually really boring to travel all alone. So what do we do? We take our friends, beloved, relatives (any of those) with us! This way experience goes differently. Better or worse... Depens, really.
I know, that you and me have pretty much business in this world. So why not to send our characters into the joyous journey to the other world?
Written or drawn piece, featuring both your character and mine in the setting other than their own.
4 Tips for When You Commission Others[a needed reminder]4 Tips for When You Commission Others2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was just thinking of this for no real reason earlier and thought I'd share because I've come into contact with all four of these things with the many commissions I've drawn. x'D
And who knows, most of this is common sense but perhaps some of you have never thought of things this way before. ;D;
I just know that most people drawing commissions for you will definitely appreciate it or enjoy drawing your commission more if you do these things.
o1. Be CLEAR and DIRECT with what you want drawn.
-Make the artist feel like they are drawing a character instead of just some item. You don't have to type out their life story, but it's always nice to have a small bit of information about the character to reference to so that a bit of personality or inspiration for posing/expression can be represented.
-So, something like "These two characters. She is really shy and modest and he is really apathetic." is a lot more helpful than "I want these t

THERE'S A TWIST TO THIS ONE! I AM ONLY DOING DESSERTS I WANT TO, NOT FIRST COME FIRST SERVE!
My Dessert 0C customs cost $10 or 900 points if you'd
like to buy one you must have a paypal, I will only be accepting points for 1 slot!
So if you can only pay in points, you should pick an interesting dessert!
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS:
-explain the dessert you want
-give me a few colors you would like (although i may not use them, they might help me)
-link me to photographs of the desserts you are talking about!
-also be sure to tell me baby girl or baby boy!

(if there is something you can't find from there, but would like to know, just ask).
All my wigs are from eBay. There is not anymore the ones left which I used for Rose, Dave, Porrim and Kanaya. My Karkat is this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/Reborn-Takeshi-Yamamoto-cosplay-wig-/250987686298?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a7008299a . Lapirin owns Roxy's so I do not know the seller, but I know that it's from eBay too.
All my t-shirt's prints (Alpha!Dave, Dark!Rose, Default!Rose, Karkat, Roxy, Kanaya) are made with T-shirt transfer paper. Basically it works this way: first you make the print with computer, then print it (to transfer paper), cut the print from the paper and iron it to your t-shirt. Easy as it can be.
Godtier!Rose is slightly different since I wanted the print to be a golden one, not a yellow. I made a

todayis one of the gawdamn happiest days of my life.today3 years ago in Personal More Like This
it's a challenge. it's a challenge to be happy, to seek out happiness and to hold within you.
it's a challenge because so many people can give you attitude, can give you hateful looks.
so many people can yell at you, tell you you're crap or something.
There are people who just won't like you.
And that's ok. That's ok. There are reasons behind those actions, most of which i'll never know.
But the one thing i do know is that you can't let other people take that away from you.
People can rain on your parade but the hardest part and one of the most challenging things to do is to look into yourself and find a reason to smile.
It sounds like such simple advice that's been quoted down many times in history..
But the pathways to it.. the pathways that people take in order to reach a CONCLUSION, a REALIZATION are so vast and different.
Today i was myself. But i was more than myself. Alot of times, you have to fight to be happy, and alot

So I was just stopped by a cop....I wasn't driving. I was walking. He drives up, rolls down the window, and says something I don't quite hear. I say hello. He repeats it. "How old are you?"So I was just stopped by a cop....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm in shock. I ask, "How OLD am I?"
"I'm 29!!" (I'm sure I sounded incredulous.)
I say, "I have my license if you want to see it." He wants to see it so I give it to him. He looks and hands it back.
He thought I was a highschool truant.
The moral of the story is that I should stop wearing clothing a teenager might wear because as I continue to get older and not to age it will become more and more unbelievable that I am as old as I say I am and I don't look forward to being driven in the back of a police car to the nearest high school, in tears BECAUSE I HAVE ALREADY DONE MY TIME!

YOU CAN USE A BASE. XD
I realized that I never explicitly said this, so I'm saying it now.
You can use ANY base as long as you credit the base maker.
This competition's winner will be judged by DESIGN skill, not ART skill.
Therefore, bases and totally cool. B)
Take note that I may make changes to the winning design, and I am effectively buying your design off of you with the prizes I'm offering.
This means that I will credit you for the original design the first time I draw it, but I will not be crediting you EVERY time I draw it. 'Cos that's a bother... ||D
Okay guys, soooo
