FX School of Hard Knocks: Intro to the world of Propmaking.
OK a lot of nice people have written to me saying they want to learn how to do what I do and was wondering if I can share some secrets over NOTEs.
I don't want to seem like I'm blowing off you guys who are noobs to the Prop making but there are a few things you need to know before you waste money and time to find out this is not what you had in mind. So this is me giving you a basic picture of what it is like - in words.
First thing you guys need to know is "Prop Making" deals with making REAL LIFE PHYSICAL PROPS THAT ARE MADE WITH CHEMICALS AND A LOT OF MONEY COSTING MATERIALS THAT COULD BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH. We make Real Things that can be seen and touched. We are not making drawings or concept art or some imaginary thing. So anything that is physical will need a lot of production time, creative skill, mental energy and a Whole Lotta materials!
Materials cost money:

LiesThe feeling of pain, and of sorrowLies5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The rush of thought
Not knowing what is to come
Can I take all this pain?
Everything is taken away from me
Something takes a part of me
I have no release
How many times have I felt diseased?
I feel my heart blacken
I trusted you, but you broke me down
You turned me inside out
Someday you will get what you deserve
I'm waiting for you, silently, just watch
While you stand there, uneasy
I will take you, and punish you

What do you think of love?
Joker: It's effed up. [pause] Oh, but you were serious, weren't you? Hell, why wouldn't you be serious? I can never tell when you're joking, Commander. Maybe if you lightened up a bit more then I wouldn't have all of this confusion… [sigh]
Aren't you going to answer?
Gah, fine. Love is… different for everybody. Me? I love ships, I love the way they move, I love the sense of control I have when I'm busting this baby from one move to the next. It's like something you can't walk away from. You love your job, right?
I wouldn't exactly say I love being the chess piece standing against the Reapers…
Yeah, but you love being who you are, right? If you didn't love being who you were, then you'd be sane and walk away or be as stupid and ignorant as thos

His smile is known among children.
His tears to the ones full grown.
His cascabels ring like church bells,
The cards he plays are unknown.
For who wouldn't know the playful grin,
The satin shoes, tips knife thin?
With swiftness of a floating swan,
Making the night so beautifully long.
But do go ahead, hah, take a look.
Read the blank page of an empty book.
Listen to hidden dread in cries,
Deep behind those playful eyes.
For what remains without desire?
Without a wish, without a prayer?
No questions needn't to be asked
For an elegant gloved hand travels,
The mystery of his features masked
Under the gloved touch unravels.
Dying at your hands,
He bet it all on you.
It seems that you were bluffing,
Like he knew you'd do.
His strings were cut,
Every limb loose in crimp
What is he now,
But a puppet gone limp?

It makes the illusion that I am insane.
It creates people when they dont exist,
It creates storms, and darkness and mists.
It fills me with anger real deep inside,
It makes me search for a place to hide.
It creates voices trapped in my head,
Telling me things like, "you're better off dead!"
It makes me scream throughout the night,
It takes away happiness, joy and my light.
I claw at my head to try and break free,
I try to run far, away from me.
My doctor told me I need medication,
But the tablets he gave me eats my magination.
I want to be normal, I really do,
But I don't what the doc says just cant be true.
My mind tells me it's poison, and says run away,
I can't trust the doctor, or anyone this way.
My mind says they're evil, they're out to get me,
They all try to stop me from being free!
I can't trust this world, I can't trust anyone!
I can only trust me, the knife and the gun.
These are my friends, Im not insane!

"Hikari!" Maya yelled happily, getting up, running over to her, and hugging the hazel eyed girl. She wasn't really caring that her hands were covered in chocolate from the brownies she had been eating; the pan almost empty between the two other girls sitting on the floor.
Hikari laughed softly, watching Finn land on the floor laughing to himself at the sight. Hikari looked at Maya saying, "Hey Maya, um you got chocolate all over your hands."
Maya blushed looking at her hand, and licking the chocolate from them happily with a giggle saying, "Oops sorry Hikari...."
"No problem," Hikari said, going over, sitting at the third pillow on the floor, smiling at Renee and Kathy, "Hello again you two."
"Hello Hikari," Renee said with a smile toward her.
"Finally you got here," Kathy said, rolling her green eyes, looking at Hikari, then raised an eyebrow, her blond hair cascading over her shoulders, "Where's your cloths, Hikari?"

You may not think so.. Many people don't, but what makes you special is that you're you, and you better not let anyone change you. Ever. Everyone is beautiful in their own way. You might express yourself completely different than others or you might appear ordinary butbut your personality will definitely stand out.. If you let yourself stand out(: accept who you are, and you'll feel better about yourself. That's hard to do? Well, everyone's been there at some point in their lives but go. Yes, get up and go. Go find a mirror. Look into it. I'm serious. Spend a few minutes.. Look at your eyes(: what do you like about them? The color.. The shape? Your long, amazing eyelashes? There has to be something you like! Now, look at the rest of your body. Does society judge you for your exterior? If so, I have three magical words that I want you to say anytime someone gets you down.. Or when you're feeling self conscious and unhappy about yourself.

~rankirubai asks "In what ways has Shaun helped your art and creativity improve? What kinds of insights on art, character design, storytelling, etc has he given you?"
Before I met Shaun (`endling) I was pretty much on my own when it came to art, looking things up and reading tutorials etc. It's been really hard sometimes.
Nowadays, he's the person I talk to all the time, discussing art and stories and games and such. it's really important to me to have another opinion on my work, especially from someone

How to start doin commissionsHow to start doin commissions8 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Edit: This tutorial covers aspects related only to your Deviantart gallery and Deviantart Journal. It has nothing to do with the Deviantart's newly implemented points commission system. You can take commissions without using that points system on Deviantart as long as you have paypal.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO START
When you have enough watchers and people interested in your art.
When you have a closely-bounded community around your work/gallery
How many is enough I can't say for sure, because it depends on the community around you and your work. Some artists can live on one patron, others need to live on millions of them.
For DA, I would say typically around 20,000-40,000 pageviews, at least 40-50 watchers on your DA is best before you start considering taking commissions, (because out of that 40-50, you may have 1 person willing to pay, a safer bet is 100 people.) however, if your gallery has explosiv

When I was about seven years old, I wrote my first story—a short “book” about an island completely inhabited by velociraptors, and a hero who could have been Dr. Grant's (my childhood hero) twin. While I didn't know it, my first work was loosely a fan-fiction of Jurassic Park. Most of us, perhaps all, become writers because at some point of our life we fell deeply in love with a story. Today, I'm going to talk about how we can make fan-stories serve us as best as possible. Please note that while fan-fiction is included in this segment, I will be using the term “fan-writing” to also include original stories with original characters that closel

No you don't, you attention seeker.
You're just an average teenager with the perfect life
Desperately looking for sympathy."
Stop crying, you coward.
You're just a childish "scaredy-cat".
Blaming your problems on a mental disorder
That doesn't even exist."
"So you're schizophrenic?
Grow the hell up, and stop acting like a child
You're too old for imaginary friends
You callow, juvenile, little twit."
But if we're attention seekers,
Why do we try so hard to hide our feelings from the world?
Why do we isolate ourselves in our rooms,
Desperately hiding the cuts on our wrists
Trying our best to live a normal life?
And if we're simply "scaredy-cats",
Why is our fear so vividly intense?
Unlike simple fear, our anxiety will stick with us forever
A severe long-lasting feeling of powerful panic.
A feeling from which we'll never be free.
Suddenly we're childish for having a mental disorder?
Schizophrenia is not something we can control.
