Rat Anatomy Compilation.Rats are very fascinating little creatures. They have small hands like humans, minus the thumbs. They are intelligent and social, and each rat has a unique personality. They can also easily stand on their hind legs, making them an easy transition to an anthropomorphic form for stories and art.Rat Anatomy Compilation.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, though, they are damn difficult to draw, and there are precious few resources for those wishing to delve into their anatomical structure (certainly me included). So I will be collecting references, both photos and drawings, that I think might be helpful to someone looking to draw my charming friend Rattus norvegicus (and perhaps some of his closest family members). I will probably add to this from time to time as I find new resources, so please feel free to suggest things that you think might be useful!

The Textures Feature Vol. IIHi everyone!The Textures Feature Vol. II1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, thank you for over 500 watchers! Can't really imagine that there's so many people who like what I do - but I am more than thankful for that. Also, thanks to the people who made donations in order to support my work here. When I opened that donation pool, I didn't think that there would be donations any time soon. But you surprised me and I don't really know how you thank you for that. Well, except saying thank you! It's a huge motivation for me to carry on with what I do. Now I hope this journal will be a small motivation for the artists featured here, too. Hope you will continue making amazing art!

I. Shinobi = Emotionless tools.
II. How one can become stronger by protecting the ones important for them.
Now let's take them one by one.
I. Shinobi = emotionless tools.
A tool called Shinobi.
As Kakashi and Zabuza start fighting throughout these two fighting, Kishi introduces to us the concept of the what a true Shinobi meant at that time, as I stated before, as Zabuza said that he gained a high quality tool for himself, a fighting machine known as a Shinobi who doesn't have a heart nor fear of death. Furthermore Kishi explaines how one, in order to become that perfect tool, has to erase its humanity like Zabuza has done with Haku by training him from his early ages.
While Kakashi and Zabuza fight, he orders Sakura to stay and protect Tazuna because this fight is seri

The Team goes into the forest, as we all know a very dangerous one, that's why it was called the Forest of Death. As we all know there are at the beginning some incidents at the beggining as Naruto got caught by another ninja and then comes the battle with Orochimaru.
You'll say that Sakura was useless though I disagree with you. Yes, she did not fought like Naruto or Sasuke did, but in that battle she served more of a trigger for Sasuke to fight Orochimaru and did the best she could. Remember that at that time, Sakura served as the brains of the team, which is highly contradictory with useless. As far as I know, useless means having no beneficial use. Well, Sakura proven herself to be beneficial in the missions, even though her actions were smaller in power-scale compared with her team-mate

Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!Why don't I get enough freelance work? Are my prices too high? I see these types of questions on Deviant Art a lot. Whether you are just starting out or you have been freelancing for a while, there is a good chance that you can improve your workload and income by applying a little bit of self confidence and assertiveness.Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Don't wait for work to find you. Go find work. Read job ads. Find jobs that suit your skills. Also adapt your skills to match the jobs you find... That's very important. If you can provide a style or service that other artists can't match, that gives you an advantage. Make a list of freelancing sites and other sites with job advertisements. You can find some of them here: http://friendlyhand.deviantart.com/journal/#/d52v4i3 Keep track of which sites provide the BEST job leads for you and visit them regularly. Be prompt when applying for jobs. Some clients will take days to pick an artist but other clients will choose from the first few applicants.
hidden by commenter BS!Noreally I don't like to be very open or opinionated when it comes to issues with DA. But I have just taken notice to something that seriously should not even be an issue! Apparently now other people can edit and hide their own comments they make on YOUR page. So let's say your trying to report someone for harassment, they can basically hide their comments to you and there is no evidence to prove they were harassing you. So therefore they can keep doing it over and over but because they can hide their own comments on your page now they can't get introuble! How messed up is that ! That is basically giving people the "OK" to do these sort of things. And because the Staff does not accept screen shots as proper evidence there is no way you can prove you are being harassed by others!hidden by commenter BS!8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Stock rulesOkay, time for some rules.Stock rules5 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may use my stock for your artwork under the following conditions:
You link to my stock in your description.
You comment on the stock pictures you used and insert a link to your work. (I really wanna see it!)
Commercial use is generally no problem, but needs my express permission
Use outside of dA is also no problem, but needs my express permission, too. (I'm picky, aren't I?)
If you want to offer a print using my stock, you need - guess what - my express permission.
You don't have to fav the stock in question, but it would be nice.
If you have any further questions, just ask. I will answer. Promise!
I don't allow nude art, or art with political content. In other words, I do not lend my pictures to Nazis,
perverts or any other kind of extremist. If your gallery and/or favorites are full of tits, swastikas or other crap like

Fantastic Stock And Where To Find it - Feature 31Happy Valentines DayFantastic Stock And Where To Find it - Feature 311 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artists
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

Standing up against price complaintsDisclaimer: if you aren't going to read this journal completely to understand the concepts I'm bringing up, do not bother to comment. Random angry/drama-spewing comments from TL;DR-ers are unwarranted and unwelcome. Thank you for understanding!Standing up against price complaints2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just had a new complaint about my prices for my Pay to use deviations... I've had a few of these in the past (for both commissions and pay-to-use deviations) and I try to handle them the same way.
1.) calm any frustration
2.) collect my thoughts
3.) and write my explanation for my own actions.
(I seriously have to explain my own actions and decisions that I have chosen for the permissions and pricing of my own creations? Really??)
I know that most people that complain aren't intending to be rude... but they end up looking that way to artists. (Especially to artists that are trying to make some extra $ to support their passions as well as their food, their rent/mortgage, car loans and other bills.) Art isn't just fun

Border CSS TipsYou'll find many border css styles all around the web .. I am not adding anything new here .. just collecting some of my favourite border styles and tips together .. Also I want our students in eCSSercise to check on this blog .. hope u'll find them usefulBorder CSS Tips3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Wow .. thanx for the feedback .. with ur help I'll add more tips below .. keep an eye on them XD
What's a border?
Border is what surrounds your html/css object/item, let it be a text, an empty box, or an image .. etc
What makes up a border?
Border has four properties:
Color - Width - Style - Radius
Whether you choose for your border to be visible or not, bear in mind it's made up of four parts:
Top - Bottom - Right - Left
How to use that in CSS?
The border properties have different ways to write down their values, but I always use a fixed/limited way:
color: #------; --> border color
width: --px; --> border thickness
style: solid, dashed, dotted; --> border ap
