My Favorite Carroll Shelby StatementsIt's time to push some of Carroll Shelby's words of wisdom out there into DA-land. Agree with him or not, he's a down-home, interesting guy. Without further ado:My Favorite Carroll Shelby Statements2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't think I'm a celebrity. I'm just a guy from east Texas who loves cars and airplanes.
If you don't go do what you wanna do, you're just bullshitting yourself.
Winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1959 was probably the highlight of my career as a driver.
My last race? That was in 1960, in Los Angeles. Since 1959, I'd been having to drive with nitroglycerin under my tongue for my heart condition, which slows you up tremendously for a lap or two. And I just thought, Hey, this is kinda stupid. I never thought I was endangering the other guys or I might have a heart attack and die. It just slowed me up. I saw this prohibiting me from driving at my maximum. And I'd always wanted to build my own cars. So about halfway through the race, I just decided, Hey...
I don't design cars. I'm not a designer. I know what I desire to be buil

what i'd like to do is "host" a big ol' collab picture that includes a lot of artists. this will give artists exposure to others and vice versa, from their point of view. also, it is fun!!
what i am planning to do is make a template sheet and paste pictures you guys send to me onto it, hence me acting as a "host". to give you some ideas, i'll start to explain what i would like to do. this will be a large picture that looks like a "select your fighter" screen, like this:
that is the basic idea, but i would like to add a few things. first off, there will be enough space for you to show more than your character's head. let's say...

under that, i will add your character's name

7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better ArtistPractice, practice, practice. Gah.7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better Artist2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.
Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.
Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!
Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons.

It was nearing time for the new term to begin, and as always, Glitch wanted to change his outfit...
After all, that one got a little wrecked in the tournament. Oops.
And why not? He would be earning his degree in Elementalism the next term, and who wouldn't want to look absolutely STUNNING for graduation? Surely not him, as looking into obtaining interesting clothing for graduation was a high priority.
This is a drawing contest where you design a new outfit for Glitch, the elementalism student teacher of :iconotherworlde:! He tends to change his outfit often and he's looking for a couple new ones to add to his closet. Therefore, your task -- if you choose to accept it -- is to design a new outfit for Glitch to proudly wear in the next term, when he plans to earn his academy degree.

You may also know that from the second generation on, I've been drawing them quite inebriated :icondrunkplz: This leads them to be crude, messy, and instead of acting as standalone pokemon comics they become insights into the mind of a drunk artist.

Batman Victims and The ChurchThis may hurt some feelings. If you disagree, fine. You aren't disagreeing with me. You'll be disagreeing with a collection of books written thousands of years ago.Batman Victims and The Church2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Part of God's Plan," the churches say - The Church lie. The BIBLE NEVER says that in order to acquire a new angelic servant, he will use a material source on Earth to end their life. It NEVER says that.
Now to give you an idea of just how screwed up these Church teachings are, I'll give you a bit of information about God's power.
According to the Bible, in the year 732 B.C.E. a Destroyer Angel from heaven killed 185,000 soldiers of the Assyrian army. In ONE night.
(this is WITHOUT the use of a Nuclear bomb)
That angel was part of only one Myriad (10,000 x 10,000) of Angels. The total of a Myriad, by the way is 100,000,000.
Why does that matter? Because if each of those Destroyer Angels had the ability

Making a selection, and then narrowing the top 5 entries down to three really pulled at my heartstrings and my co-judge and friend wolfie1998 felt exactly the same about it. Each participant sent in an amazing entry that a lot of time and effort has been put into so in order to even make a selection we had to be very strict and look at every little detail. (I hate being a nitpicking critique lol). We judged each person on the followin qualities:
Does it fit the theme Animals/creatures
The winning crafts have to be related to the theme somehow. Sound logical enough, right?
If there's anything I love about being creative , it's the endless possibilities and different styles that one can create. Not one entry will look the same. I've given the contestants of this contes

Please be aware that I can't teach anyone how to make patterns. I'm just putting together a few tips and tricks that will hopefully help someone.Tutorial: How to machine stitch heads onto bodies6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Sew your plush's body together, leaving the entire back open.
Sew your plush's head together, also leaving the back open.
Match the head to the body and pin. When making your pattern, make sure the circumference of the opening at the bottom of the head is equal to the circumference of the neck opening of the plush body.
Sew a straight line from one end to the other.
The plush's head is now attached!
You should now have a plush with the entire back open! All you have to do now is finish it!

ObituaryAn Obituary printed in the London TimesObituary2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
- Why the early bird gets the worm;
- Life isn't always fair;
- And maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).
His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place: Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents atta

I will give you a piece of script from "Uru's Reign", The very ending of Chapter 4 to be specific, and you will make a comic page out of it. The winning entry will be uploaded to my gallery as a legit page of Uru's Reign, will all credit going to you, the artist.
I will not tell you anything about what happens before this point, as I don't want to spoil anything. This will give you an interesting challenge, as the page starts off in the middle of a heated conversation. I think a challenge is good. But I will give you the setting. The Pride Lands, not at Pride Rock, close to the border. Time of day, sunset. It is the end of Chapter 4, the chapter we are currently on, so the characters should appear in their TEEN design, not cub, not adult. Feel fre

The State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYACAbout SYACThe State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYAC3 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of the reasons I focus so much attention on Marvel and DC is because they’re big companies who should know better. They are made up by hundreds of people all chipping in little bits here and there, and for that there is no excuse for bad artwork, bad writing, or bad material in general. They are, to an extent, a bit of a cheap shot, but everyone can learn from their mistakes and I can offer my opinions about them and what I personally would do differently. And if you’re paying money for their products, I think you deserve good content in return, no?
SYAC is, at it’s core, about how comic artists and the comic industry works and poking fun at the various things they get wrong... and sadly that includes a lot of really hot button topics like Women’s Rights, Sexism, Racism, Homophobia, etc. Comics are no longer their own sheltered little thing... they’ve been THRUST into the mainstream audience and all of these problems we or
