Hello beautiful crafters. It's time to get out your cameras, your crafty tools and get ready for another Artisan Craft Challenge!
The poll was a close one, but "Prehistory" pipped them all at the post to snatch a modern day victory.
Since this question has been asked already I'll clarify here for everyone: the definition of Prehistory is up to you and how you interpret it. Let your imagination flow and show us what prehistory means to you.
But how do I enter, you ask?
I'm glad you asked. Here's the official challenge rules:

Contest folder closed! Thank you for all the entries!
Judging now in progress. We will try to finish everything up in the next few days.

Fancy banner, eh?! Haha, welcome to the first contest of FancyCrafts! I, FrozenNote, will be your host!

So basically, this contest is about you learning a new craft. You, the entrant, should make something with a technique and medium you haven't tried before.
Vizkopa's Writing TipsHi everyone!Vizkopa's Writing Tips1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you may know, I’m in my final year of a Creative Writing degree and while I still have a long way to go in terms of my writing skills, I’ve picked up some very useful tips from my tutors over the last few years (and bear in mind, some of these tutors are published writers, so their advice is sound!). These tips have really helped me to improve my writing and I would like to share just a few of them with you all Included in this journal are some points about writing in general, as well as ones that are a little more specific to fan fiction. A lot of them might seem really simple and obvious to some, but they are so very important and I hope everyone can take at least something away from this, and that you continue to be inspired to write and hone your skills
Now I have formatting as number one because so matter how good of a writer you are, no matter how beautiful your prose is, it needs to be readable! A lot of

Some people didn't vote (but read the note) so I replace them by another vote for each of them (logical, since the participants can't vote for themselves, it's not fair if some people didn't vote ha ha). It's for that that it took some time ^^

Queen Elsa Frozen by UchihaSayaka
There’s a chill in the air as we travel to the kingdom of Arendelle for a Frozen cosplay treat.
Frozen was Disney’s tremendously successful third attempt at adapting the grimm Hans Christian Anderson tale The Snow Queen. As early as 1943, Walt Disney saw the potential in this the longest and most highly acclaimed of Andersen’s stories, but it to

Tokyo bluesEXTREME STREET PHOTOGRAPHY - VTokyo blues2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Are there places were street photography is impossible? Are there countries easier than others, or harder than others? How is it street shooting like in exotic places, or places you never visited, places that are completely different from what you are used to? I asked a few street photographers around the world to share with us their experiences.

Japan is a fascinating country with an unusual mix of the traditional and modern. It's a magical place filled with anime, cosplayers, samurai, sushi, and all the strangest things imaginable. Wrong! Well, not really, but this is just the cliché, outer covering. When newcomers just scratch the surface of this country, this cliché is all they find. But, in reality, Japan is a place like any other: full of human beings who have normal lives with all their little dr

In the new arc, I want to draw a place like a "palace of ice." It will be colored white, with blues and silvers as well.
Kubo-sensei confesses! The Arrancar are also in his plans!!
Q: In the new arc, the shinigami will of course be represented, but will other characters from the past also appear?
Kubo: Yes, if the arrancar appear, I think they will stand with the shinigami.
Q: Will there be characters that appear in the role of a friend?
Kubo: Ulquiorra has already turned into ash. Grimmjow might become a friend. Also, what about Harribel, who is still alive? But, I wonder how I'd bring them out of Hueco Mundo. I think Harribel would not leave Hueco Mundo.
Q: Was the idea of arrancars becoming friend
Let's feature some OCs! (closed)1. For each person (10 peoples) who comments on this journal, I will choose and feature one of their characters. I'll also tell you what I like about them.Let's feature some OCs! (closed)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. If you comment, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (or original journalist) in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!
3. Added by me, because I can control my fuckin' account . It's not necessary to follow the 2nd rule, but it would be nice of you.
I took from :iconSaturnBud:
*1.:iconsaturnbud: Bright Star. So much cuteness and joyfulness mixed in a single character! Maybe it's just me, but I can imagine Bright Star going through an epic journey! Can you?
2.:iconlerioi: Pyrea. This dude does look tough! And I love his design and powers! Well done!
2014 Yaya Han Calendar - it's here!I thought now would be a good time to make the calendar available to the public since they were shipped out to me yesterday! After the successful trial run of last year's calendar, I wanted to make an even better cosplay calendar for 2014!2014 Yaya Han Calendar - it's here!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To summarize: The 2014 Limited Edition Yaya Han Calendar features 12 months of new cosplay images printed on glossy 11x17 paper, which flips open to a 11x24 calendar. Out of the 12 monthly images, only 2 have been released before, all others are brand new and shot exclusively for the calendar. None of the images will be available as a print or poster, you will only be able to see them in the calendar.
FREE shipping within USA and Canada, $10 shipping everywhere else! It is again $24.99, just like last year, and will be signed and personalized by me! I'll post some teaser pics soon but you get a great idea of the calendar's look from the cover and back cover alre
