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!2 years 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:
'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'8 months 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

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
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
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 - Rant10 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
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 Do9 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
The ALS Challenge.Does it make sense that the ALS challenge consists of taking a bucket of fresh clean water with a bag of ice in it, and dunking it over your head? Imagine... all that water could of been given to the kids in Africa who needs it. Or any other person in desperate need.The ALS Challenge.7 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
It's great knowing that people are part taking in a ALS challenge, but I don't think that pouring water with a bag of ice in the bucket over your head is necessary. I get what the challenge is about. Maybe for the challenge, a complete change of a challenge, is to help every person out in need, "passing it down" pretty much. The challenge should of been "in part of the ALS challenge, I'll be donation a case of fresh spring water to people in need, and also donate 50.00-100.00$ to help scientists find a cure to help those who are diagnose with ALS. We shall all do this and spread word around." Instead of helping one, your helping both. Than to waste such pure water on your body to get the word out. At first the challenge wa

2. Amazon river dolphins have stiff hairs on their beaks. They are a sensory organ which the dolphin uses to sense prey such as piranhas and other fish, along with crabs, turtles, catfish, and shrimp in the muddy river bottoms.
3. The Amazon river dolphin is able to move its neck. This is unlike other dolphin species that have a fused vertebrae, and therefore very limited movement of their neck area. The Amazon river dolphin is able to look side to side and up and down.
4. Most kinds of dolphins live in large family units, or pods. Amazon river dolphins are different - they usually live alone for most of thei

I should put this up to clarify things a lil' bit.
I. Don't. Hate. Orca's. I really don't mind them, and I think they're quite OK. I personally don't like the drama that surrounds it. Before you go saying: It's not drama it's awareness! Yes, I can understand that but after a while seeing the same thing brought up over and over again is a bit tiring to see. Do I think raising awareness is a bad thing? NO! Do I think people take it a little far when it comes to raising awareness? YES. Does that make it wrong I feel like that? No. People can Have Their own opinion about things? OF COURSE.
If You want to raise awareness then great! But people are allowed to have open views on it and opinions not everyone is going to get along and agree on things.

"Finally, a excuse to drink battery acid!" Careen squealed in relief as she let the acid slip down her throat, earning her a shake from the head from Silver Blade, as Careen caught action of this.
"What?" Careen questioned, turning in her chair to look over at the femme as Silver chuckled.
"You drink that like it's energon, but it will eventually burn a hole right through your tank's." Silverblade warned, as she was answered with a 'I-don't-care' look from Careen.
"Ya'know... I really want to thank everyone out there. Ya'know, my best friend's... my enemies... my best friend's who act like my enemies," Careen seemed to turn off into a daze.
"... Yeah, that does sound like a real nice relationship you got going." Silver rolled her optics sarcastically.
"Shut it, sure a few of them wanted to decapitate me, burn me, throw me off the Nemesis-"
"And yet you keep coming back like a organic dog with a Frisbee." Silver blade finished.
