One Reason....... why I try not to comment about people's weight.One Reason...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I used to attend a particular conference on an annual basis, and so I got to (casually) know the other "regulars" who also used to be there. Every year, more or less, I'd see the same group of people at the speakers' dinner, and we could catch up on the usual "what are you up to these days?" kind of stuff. One of the guys I used to see fairly often was a tall heavy-set fellow (some might call him "fat" or "obese") he'd always been tall, bearded, and big, to me. But one year, he showed up and he had lost a lot of weight. It took me a second to recognize him, and I said, "Hey, Rich! You look great! You've lost a lot of weight!" and he looked at me and deadpanned, "Yeah, pancreatic cancer will do that."
Do I need to belabor the point? I will. First off, I set myself up for a massive head-fuck, by making assumptions about what was going on in someone else's life, and - even though I was being friendly about it - I was horribly wro
First Day of SummerThe Eve of Midsummer was a lovely celebration, with ginger toast, and country style ribs, and a very nice bottle of Golden Monkey.First Day of Summer9 months ago in Personal More Like This
The fireflies were all out in their splendor and the garden, trees and night were sparkling with their faery lights. We now move into the season of plenty. No matter who you are, I hope you will look around and share your bounty, be it art, be it food, be it a word or a hand, to all those who are still in the winter of their own journey and help bring them a bit of the summer warmth and light into their lives. Enjoy what the spirits have given, but be not so blinded by the summer sun that you do not see the others that need your thoughtfulness.
And check out my stock sister, :iconiardacil-stock:
She has really amazing stock (you should check out her art site too, she's an amazing photo manipulator).
As a first note, DO NOT post any of my pictures on facebook, myspace, twitter, or any other similar sites in their original (unedited) form, ever.
1. You MUST inform me of when you have used my stock. I like seeing what everyone has made! You do not need to ask to use it beforehand, but you do NEED to tell me afterward.
2. Cite this site (http://sitara-leotastock.deviantart.com/), or the particular picture you used, in the description of your picture.
3. No using models for anything sexually inappropriate or mature.
4. Do not portray any of the models as something excessively monstrous, demonic, gory, gruesome, etc. Macabre and horror themes are allowed and appreciated, but as stated before, not if they are excessively grue

Need references?Although drawing and painting "from life" is way much more effective and efficient than drawing from photos (I'll be writting a separate journal about this soon, no worries), you simply can't have a person to model for you every time you want to create something. And there are situations when you don't exactly know how to place that bloody hand or if the foot is drawn correctly. Similiar issues can happen with architecture, perspective... with everything you draw. Then, when you look for help, you may stumble upon Stock gallery and you find awesome things. Remember about crediting the used stock directly!Need references?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

But first, a word from our sponsor. After all, have to keep the dragon fed, and the fires burning if the dwarves, and elves and faery folk are to craft and create the work you use. http://amzn.com/w/2ACWOZEGVO8S
It is, and probably always will be a problem with those that choose to try and use the work of the stock artists, to feed their own rather twisted appetites, but we cannot let those affect how we see our own work and how we choose to work with the community we have here, both of stock artists, and models, as well as the artists that we interact with. The balance is that there is much more light, appreciation and support than there are the psychotic and the deranged. As long as we support each other, look out for each other, and care about the quality and the work that we do, then we will remain and grow even more so, a strong and cohesive community of resources for all the arts, and visions out there.
Objection !I was watching a Chinese stream the other day and then the player loaded a game I didn't know but that I thought looked pretty cool ^^Objection !9 months ago in Personal More Like This
It was all in Chinese but even without understanding a thing, I liked the old school graphics and how the characters were animated and the musics. Then the scene switched to a court room where I saw a certain defense attorney with Spiky black hair and a blue suit and that's when I realized I was actually watching a Phoenix Wright game
Everybody has heard of or seen Phoenix Wright in his classic finger pointing pose but I never really had the chance to check the games until now ( yeah I know I'm late XD )
Just watching how the game flowed, the rhythm, the back and forth between characters, made me curious even if I didn't understood a word of course and so I started to watch an actual let's play of the serie.
At first I was just curious but then I realized the game is actually very captivating !
It's unique with great dialogs, witty hu

The annoyed VivianThe annoyed Vivian1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well some of you guessed right, that's because her month in the calendar was January with a late release date. Vivian being Vivian she didn't appreciated having less screen time
And because it's not healthy to have a giant naga staying annoyed at you, I am going to draw a couple pictures as a tribute to her XD
I am not totally sure what they will be about but yeah, you can expect more of Vivian soon. A sort of Vivian month if you will :3
If you have ideas or things you'd like to see, please don't hesitate to share them !
Also those last few weeks I was in the middle of a very busy time professionally that left me with almost no time to draw for Felarya
Well it has ended now and I'll be coming back to a more normal rhythm :3
So stay tunned ^_^
My deviantART StoryHappy Birthday dA!!My deviantART Story7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have been on DevianArt for 10 years collectively! And I must say it's been quite a ride!
I have over 600+ deviations already between my old and new accounts and dang!
When I first joined dA, I only uploaded traditional arts over from my old sketchbook and I was surpised that I got pageviews and favorites for those.
Since then I started making more drawings, but this time with the mouse!
Dern shure with a mouse!
I got better, and better, and eventually purchased myself a (cheapbutt) tablet!

And other things to be done. What with the late season changes, the garden, and the vegetables therein all need tending, yet even so we are slated for a night down into the mid 30's F, which means all the house plants must be brought in as they do not do well with temperatures under 50 F.Took me a while10 months ago in Personal More Like This
There is a lot of stock waiting to be submitted. But time and my eye sight are being a bit of a bother. We are however working our way to getting some help in place, where some of the associate folks can help with some of the work. One of the items I am looking into seriously is doing packs of images rather than individual ones, which should help a bit with some of the clutter, BUT, that means making the preview collages, text files with the rules, and other preparation work that has to be done before submitting the packs.

May the seasons bless you with their bounty,
May the Spirits guard you on your journey,
May you find yourself stopping often to experience the land,
May you find the road before you a challenge, but one of joy,
May you grow and prosper in your own season,
May you find the naked pure fires in your spirit,
May the fires of your heart glow through your eyes,
May all you touch find the healing and the joy of your own passions.
For those of you in southern climes, I wish you the greatest of winter solstice celebrations too.
