Vinnie Vienna Needs You!Okay, so I am making a online web series called "Vinnie Vienna" and I need Writers, people who like to draw (Beginners or Pros) and storyboard artists! I am not looking for professionals, just people who are interested in helping out, and possibly making a name for themselves! So please don't be so modest! Any drawing style is accepted, because we can make it work!Vinnie Vienna Needs You!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There really isn't a clear premise yet, so I'm looking to work with you, the great people of Deviantart to come up with some great ideas for the story of the series!
Vinnie the Vienna:
Vinnie is a vienna sausage, who is well mannered, but when it's time to get tough he's ready to take action.
Vanessa the Pork is a girl who works at a doughnut shop, and likes to eat doughnuts.
Chester the Pork is a guy who sometimes gets nervous but is very smart and comes up with great schemes.
They live in the city of Porkton:

Edit: Requesting time is over once the livestream is over, I only took requests while I was online and livestreaming.
Livestream Link-> http://www.livestream.com/wombatart The livestream is over, but you can still view the video!
It's that time again! What time is it? ADVEEEEN-NOWAIT. FREE REQUESTS TIME! : D I had so much fun last time, that I finally have another off day and wanna do it again.
I will be doing free requests of canine characters(dogs, wolves, etc.), as I can draw them faster than other creatures. Sorry, no anthros neither. D: They take lots more attention and I wanna make your characters look decent. <3 To request, simply post a link to your charcter's ref sheet, bio, image, etc. Do not post requests on this journal, as I'll only listen to peeps in the livestream chat and won't be checking back here. Only one canine per person.
I will take a max of 3-4 requests at a time, but we'll see how much I can handle for now. :3
'mai origunal speecies -- donut steel'Alright... so I've been seeing some stuff around here and Tumblr talking about original species and adoptables.'mai origunal speecies -- donut steel'1 week ago in Personal More Like This
From the title it would appear as if I'm being patronizing, and maybe in some way I am... Perhaps it's because after all the years of trying to stop people from stealing my 'ideas' I've come to understand something about all of this.
Maybe... I just think all this screaming, hooting, and hollering about 'she stole my bread-wolves!' or 'he stole my flaming hyena idea!!!' is just... ugh.
While I'm all for the concept of inventing a species and wanting to keep tabs on it, there is a limit as to how far your 'tabs' can go.
For instance -- If you're 'original species' is a genetically enhanced wolf of sorts (if it's looks like a neon wolf more or less) it's not that original. If it looks anything like a wolf, it's not that original.
Saying 'this is an original species; don't use!' and it's just a wolf with a long ta

From Spirit style to your own styleFrom Spirit style to your own style. Why I choose Spirit is because most people on here that draw cartoony horses started out by drawing him. He is an idol to many and unfortunately to many as "correct" anatomy for a horse.From Spirit style to your own style6 years ago in Personal More Like This
This journal is for those trying to learn their own style and trying to pull themselves out from the style seen in the movie Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. These are the basic steps that I went through to crawl out from the Spirity world XD.
As I said in my other journal Horse Drawing Quirks. You would need to start referencing real horses or photography. There is nothing wrong with this and it is very important to use reference. Even though I say I hardly copy any poses like I used to and pretty much attempt to draw from memory. From time to time I always go back to looking over a real horse's anatomy and seeing what my art is overlooking. I didn't get the way I am from studying absolutely nothing. It's impossible. It's like drawing zebra when you do

People wanting art for free - RantIt’s rant time again. Yay. I know I’ve talked about this topic in the past already but it’s still current for many artists, and I’d like to go into it a little further. That question which pretty much every artist knows only too well.People wanting art for free - Rant3 months ago in Personal More Like This
“Can you draw something for me? But I don’t have money.”
No matter how obvious you make it that you’re a professional artist, how eye-catching the commission pricelist on your user page is or how many “I don’t do requests / art-trades”-stamps you plaster all over your journal, people either don’t notice or simply don’t care. And their ways to persuade you to give them what they want get more creative and bold.
Classic approach :
A few sentences of praise and how much they adore your artwork and how much they’d love to have a picture from you. Sometimes they also mention that they don’t have money, which means they are aware of the
D-Day Anniversary"Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!D-Day Anniversary3 months ago in Personal More Like This
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.
Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely.
But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons an

Art block over (finally). I need more practice drawing orcas, my method hasn't changed for yeeeears. So feel free to request an orca. I prefer realistic designs if you're requesting an OC. Real orcas are also welcome, wild or captive. They will likely have transparent backgrounds. A background can be added for a small amount of points. Any takers?

Pardon my language but -- what the Hell is wrong with the dA admins?
I mean really?
I get it, I really do. You're busy, you don't really want to do your job, and you've been taught to have the least possible concern for other people as you can as to avoid branding this website with a 'bad reputation'.
This place is supposedly all flowers, rainbows, and happy people frolicking away in eternal bliss sharing art, and being merry.
Meanwhile the truth is this place is the biggest joke on the internet. It's filled and continually filling up with so many sockpuppet troll accounts, cyber bullies, and spammers with such rapidity it puts Myspace or any other social media site to shame.

DAMNIT SNOWDRIFT - CATALYST, HELP!Snowdrift slowly slid back off the console, still in recharge beside Careen as Protostorm walked in and blinked at the sight.DAMNIT SNOWDRIFT - CATALYST, HELP!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Snowdrift brushed past a few controls on the console as random codes were entered, causing Protostorm to sigh and waltz over and loom over the pink and purple femmes. Careen was diffently not going to wake up anytime soon as Snowdrift slowly awoke.
"Ahem..." Protostorm cleared her throat as Snowdrift yawned.
"Ohhia." She smiled and shifted, sleepily.
"Get up," Protostorm asked with a low tone, earning her a scoff from Snowdrift as she begun to move but fell onto Protostorm, as Careen fell on Snowdrift, pinning Proto and Snow to the ground.
"SOMEONE PLEASE SLAP CAREEN AWAKE!" Protostorm snarled, clearly un-amused.
Snowdrift reached behind her to try and slap Careen but couldn't as Protostorm continued to struggle, as Careen's weight was heavier than hers and Snowdrifts combined, considering her heavy armour.
Suddenly Snowdrift's panels touched Protostorms, m
My photography course at HogwartsUuuugh you guys, my sleep has been so terrible. I woke up out of a pretty entertaining dream, though.My photography course at Hogwarts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was taking a photography class at Hogwarts and Snape was our teacher. I think Ron and Harry might also have been in our class but I never did see them. Our assignment at the time was to get ten outstanding photographs of animals in their natural habitat and he told us we had to roll up our pant-legs and go wading in a swamp full of alligators and poisonous snakes if we hoped to get any good ones. He meant this literally. This was our assignment. (Oh, Snape! )
So I actually did it; I took off my shoes and wandered into the bog, dodging snakes and snapping away. I took so long about it that I missed the start of critique and I sort of ran into Snape with some of my classmates on a bridge while I was headed back to the castle. He was reviewing their photos (and grading ruthlessly, as he does). He saw me and said, "What are you doing? You knew we had critique."
I answered, "Yeah, I kn

It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
Why I Do What I DoLately, I've been getting a few comments and notes from people accusing me of riding the Blackfish train and trying to get fame and make money off it with my anti-captivity art.Why I Do What I Do2 months ago in Personal More Like This
This couldn't be further from the truth and I want to clear it up here, so people understand why it is I do what it is I do while I've been off lately due to several recent hospital visits.
(I'm not fine, but I'll live)
As recent as 2010, I was a SeaWorld supporter. I didn't think it was a bad place, and hey. It allowed me to see and interact with orcas. The place I visited multiple times... I visited San Diego twice, Orlando about... somewhere between eight to ten times and Marineland Canada twice between 2007 and 2010.
That's a lot of visits in a three year span, when you consider I had to go all the way from New Zealand to their locations to get there.
Anyway, in 2010, I visited Orlando literally days after Taima's death. That fact made me a little uneasy about it, but it was the attack I witnessed on Kalina
