Call for Fanart! The Murder ComplexHi Divergent-Fans!Call for Fanart! The Murder Complex2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I bring you a message from Lindsay Cummings, author of the upcoming novel The Murder Complex, which will be published by Harpercollins (publisher of Divergent) and Greenwillow next year!
Lindsay is looking for fan artworks of her characters from The Murder Complex, to show to her agent and display on the future fanart page of her website! Here's what the author has to say about her novel and its protagonists:
"The book totally has the feel of Divergent and The Hunger Games.
Meadow Woodson is a 15 year old girl who has long, curly silverish hair and grey eyes. She carries a dagger, lives on a houseboat in the sea, and has a black barcode tattoo on her forehead. She also has a "fearless" tatoo on her forearm. She's usually covered in cuts and bruises, and she has little knife scars all over her arms.
Zephyr James is a 16 year old boy with
U-um....Are your moms like that too?Ok little story here~U-um....Are your moms like that too?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I went to sleep yesterday and then my mom came to turn off my alarm saying I should sleep and not wake up at 7am because it's holidays *pfff yeah tell me about it*. So she took my phone to do it, but I had changed the wallpaper.
In the past I had this one *SHUN OF COURSE*
To which she said "Ooooh! Is he drawing stars in the sky? :iconilikeitplz:"
"No Mom, he's just flying a kite."
Well....close enough if you consider what happened yesterday :iconorzplz:
She saw my new wallpaper which is this one:
And it went like this:
Me: "Yeah mom I drew it alright let me sleep" *mumbling because it was 2am lol I never really show her my drawings or admit that I drew something so yup* *no I'm not shy who said that?*
Mom: "Pretty! Is that an airplane?"
Me: *jumps up from bed* ARE YOU SERIOUS?
Mom: Yeah I think those look like tires
Me: YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS :icondurrhurrplz: *cracking up like crazy*
*took the phone and showed her the full version*

As most of you have already heard, things were patched up very nicely with China Glaze, and the new Halloween collection is now available in stores http://www.chinaglaze.com/products/index.php?coll=77
I've gotten a ton of e-mails from you guys saying you've spotted them in stores, and I'm really excited about it. Thanks again to everyone who viscously berated the company for using stolen artwork! They had no idea, of course, and the fellow who ripped me off was mysteriously never heard from again... Anyway! The black texture polish and the glow-in-the-dark are favs of mine, but if you're looking to do up your nails for Halloween, check out the new colors!
Thanks again everyone!

Prismacolor Marker ReviewHello, :iconpeachfuzz: here. If you are interested in Prismacolor markers and their uses, then this might just be worth a read. I currently own a 144-piece set, and have run dry several smaller sets in the past year and a half. For this review, keep in mind that all colors that are capitalized (i.e. Violet or Yellowed Orange) are the actual color names of the markers used in the examples. All examples used are credited to the original artist (Mostly me) in the description as well as in the link.Prismacolor Marker Review9 years ago in Personal More Like This
PRICES: As with all Prismacolor products, the markers can be quite spendy. I have seen them anywhere from $1.50 to $6.00 per marker. From personal experience, I would not advise paying much more than $2.00 per marker, especially when buying in bulk. Individual markers are always more expensive, but anything over about $2.75 a piece is unreasonable. When on the trail of good deals, surfing the net and checking out art supply sites is always a good idea. My personal favorite is DickBlick.c

How to gain more exposure on deviantART!So you think you're a pretty good artist, and have some decent pieces, but nobody to show. Or perhaps you're a learning artist who wishes to attract more attention to your pieces to get advice and criticism. Sound like you? I know it sounds like me!How to gain more exposure on deviantART!7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Many artists on deviantART wish that they could have more exposure in the art world, but I've noticed that not many of them know how to go about doing so. There are actually many options, and we shall examine them thoroughly, to hopefully get you more exposure!
First off, just so that we're all on the same page, please don't expect exposure if you have nothing in your gallery. You need to be serious and dedicated about this. Also, ALWAYS make sure that the work is your own, and not stolen from someone else. It will surely get back to the artist from which you took it from, and you will be severely penalized.
Now that we've cleared that up, we'll begin!
1. The most common way to get exposure, comments and favourites is to

I'm not Whisperwings and I can't express what all the comments and heartfelt expressions have meant so much to not only me but my husband and son as well.
Sometimes it's not until someone you love is gone that you realize what a loving, caring & helpful person they were to so many people.
Our family is very close and we know that Alicia was the upbeat heart, the one who always wanted to decorate for the holidays and kept us doing things together even as the kids got into college. She was our glue of fun! Our traditionalist; Tacos for thanksgiving..don't ask it's a long story.
Our thanks go out to all of you who let us know just what Alie has done for you. If is was her attitude about the cancer or something as simple a kind word in reply to your comments on her art. She loved when people commented on her art.
I wanted to let you all know that her book has not been forgotten. I have been going through the notes she has received ab

I'm alive! Kind of! A little bit!YOOOOOOOOO so it has been a long ass time since i'e uploaded anything.I'm alive! Kind of! A little bit!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
The two biggest reasons being, I'm in a bit of an art slump (everthing I draw is trash) and the other being that I'm working alot. But my hours should go down because christmas is over. So hopefully more drawing will occur....and hopefully they will be good drawings. Also my computer is being super lame and we got a new printer/scanner i dont know how to work it as well....that was a third excuse. I lied. There are three weenie excuses I have for not uploading more.
So ANYWAY i thought i'd throw in some of my instagram shots of sketches and shitty doodles. If you aren't following me there, you totally should, because even though you have to put up with my constant selfies and pictures of my cat, I do post more art stuff up there because its so quick. username is conniedyer1

The real story behind devART :t::h::e: :f::a::i::r::y: :t::a::l::e:The real story behind devART11 years ago in Personal More Like This
The story of deviantART, as most know it, goes like this. Once upon a time the yellow alien :jark: and a pug were sitting around thinking, hey it would be great to create a massive online art community wouldn't it? And then the yellow alien went off and wrote thousands of lines of alien code, and the pug ran around telling all his friends about this great new art site they had to check out. And when the alien was done coding, he told all his alien friends to come too! Once they'd all arrived, this heavenly new community came about and we all lived happily ever after. Until people started "first posting" and what not. But that's another story.
But not quite.
Actually, there was a lot more to it that couldn't be discussed until now. Like the fact that there were always three deviantART co-founders, not two. That deviantART was wholly owned by DMusic Network, LLC, and then Lynx Technology Group,
Big NewsBut not good news i'm afraid. Long story short...I have cancer.Big News9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Short story long...you guys remember the mystery liver spot they found back in April? The one that was just sitting there and so they said 'it's probably fine, we'll just let it be'...? Yeah, it got bigger. And now looks like cancer. Woot, lol.
On the 19th I was in serious pain and had to call in sick to work to go to the emergency room. A CT scan showed them a bunch of fluid build up in my abdomen, which is why i was hurting so badly. So they checked me into the hospital, did some more scans, and drained about 2 liters of fluid from my insides... Friday the doc came in and said she looked at my scans and it looked like cancer. And they were gonna transfer me up to the fancy hospital in Denver for more tests and such. So I got to go home, shower, pack some stuff of my own, and then we drove up to Denver in the snow.
It's a lovely hospital up there, I had my own room and such, everyone was really nice and was really happy t
My LegacyCancer is such a scary word…but I’m okay. I’m at peace with this. I do wish I had a little more time… But really I’ve discovered that with the last weeks of my life, I only have a few goals.

Of course that’s easier said than done, especially since I can’t just come and meet every single one of you and give you all giant hugs! It’s really hard to wrap up everything I’m feeling and send it to you all so that I can try and make your lives a little brighter, lol. But, there’s a solution!

My dA story[Wow, it's been ages since I wrote a journal, so I thought this little bandwagon would be the perfect opportunity to do that.]My dA story1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I joined dA in 2006. I was 16, a sophomore in high school.
A friend of mine suggested it offhand, and I had been posting my first ventures into digital art on forums for a private server of Ragnorok Online, so I thought to myself "why not! Let's see what this is all about."
I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but the moment I first started posting, I could feel something change. Having people interested in your art and stories was so motivating; it was unlike anything I had ever had in person with family or friends. Up until I joined, I'd never really taken my art seriously.
I was on here for a year before I started concepting SalaDays, a slapstick story about supernatural teens in school. A lot of people showed interest, so I started up a webcomic (and even opened up

Expiration DateMine is drawing near. As an update from the last journal...the results of the biopsy ad various scans and such showed that I have Stage 4 Liver Cancer. It's spread outside of the liver and throughout my abdomen in the form of what's basically a ton of little polyps. There's no way to get rid of it, and no cure for it...Expiration Date8 months ago in Personal More Like This
And if the 6-9 month average of living wasn't bad enough, there's other complications that keep happening which is only making it shorter and shorter. The cancer is spreading so quickly, and there's just nothing they seem to be able to do.
I honestly I have no idea how long I have left. This morning I figured I had at least 6 months, especially with the surgery they were going to do that would fix some major issues. But the surgery failed and suddenly I could be looking at three weeks or months or what, there's just no way to know.
I'm just so tired of this...I'm tired of wondering why it's happening to me. I'm tired of wondering what I did to deserve this... I'm tired
