Games of court and crown
Setting (A very quick introduction to the land and story) :
My story takes place in the country of Dendroa, the land of Storms (part of the world of Derkomai I created) during the period when Aelys was part of the Keeshir Guard, from the moment she was found after the wreckage to the one when she will have to flee to Drechenval, scapegoated with the murder of the king.
Dendroa is a monarchy with harsh laws. Slavery is forbidden but every citizen has to contribute to the well being of the country, both by taxes and public works when requested (the nature of the task is adapted to the capacities of every one).
The pantheon is composed of several deities, the main bei

Necks for anatomy practiceI need to see loads of examples before I can get something. So here's loads of necks doing the weird necky things that necks do.Necks for anatomy practice3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To get what's going on with the tangle of muscles and tendons catch necks in action. Watch people in cafes. Pause TV. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer has particularly good lighting for drawing.) Then check out how cartoonists simplify the confusion. Maybe even check out some anatomy to see what's going on beneath the skin. Each gives you a different piece of the puzzle.
Organized by where the head is relative to the shoulders, then by where the camera is. So each group should have the same muscles and tendons bulging out. (If you post drawings from any stock here, do check the stock artist's rules.) NOTE: Images marked with ⬅ are NOT stock. Use them for practice, but don't post. (There's only one image marked since there's so much great stock.)
If you stumble across good neck stock, especially with good shadows, I'd l
I Sent Dreamworks a plushy, and they called me!I Sent Dreamworks a plushy, and they called me!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm sure many of you don't know the story of what I've been up to, so I'm going to summarize a very long story for you.
Back in April 2012, I posted an image of me holding my original HTTYD movie ticket, and had a long story of how the movie changed me. A friend by the name of Jeffrettalyn suggested I send the letter to Dreamworks, to hear what they have to say.
I was in my last semester of school at the time, and around the same time, a friend of mine suggested I make a plush and send it to Dreamworks. After spending some time thinking and questioning others about it, I decided to go forward with it when I could, and send both together.
I believe it was September 18th when I finally started working on it, and I didn't finish it until late February! After pouring in more time into this Toothless plush than any other before, I hesitated to send it away, for I had grown quite attached to it. I talked with many people, and tried to get as much support as possible. 5 Weeks
RESULTSENGLISHRESULTS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, I want to thank every artists for their splendid entries.
I love all of them. The technic or skill is not always here, but every picture have an “aura”, I am feeling something with all pictures. I can imagine a story for each and this is wonderful.
I would like to give a price for every artists because for me all of you earn a price. But a contest is a contest (and I have not unlimited money… unfortunately).
Before give results you will to know we have difficulties to vote. There was no unanimity or results handily.
That was really short and hard. 9 jury and each person count for one.
Tout d’abord, je tiens à remercier tous les artistes pour les entrées magnifiques.
Elles sont toutes superbes, même si la technique n’est pas toujours présente, chaque entrée possède son « aura », je n’ai pas la sensation de voir juste un dessin, mais de vivre une s

EDIT V: I will be announcing winners sometime in the next few days. Prizes will be distributed sometime mid to late next week. I only get paid every other week, and I am out of cash, but prizes will be coming! So do not fret! Thank you so much for being patient, all! <3
Edit IV: Contest has ended, judging will take a couple of days due to my schedule (I work full time, and I really need to take some time out and look over each entry. I know there isn't very many entries. But I also need my other judge's help with it, so bare with me guys!)
Contest will be ending February 2nd!
Small prizes will be given out. Not REALLY small prizes, but enough to hopefully satisfy.
I am sorry but I am going to have to wait till next summer to hold a serious contest.
Unless for some strange reason everyone posts their entry before February 2nd then the prizes below will stay the same xD
Anywho. Please do not fret, those who have entered something
I have won with the thief! Finally! After many unpleasant situations, sleepless nights, so many nerves ... ! Remember how I wrote that someone stole my works? http://lady2.deviantart.com/journal/Art-Thief-330802073I have won with the thief!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It turned out that the persons responsible for the comprehensive regulation admitted that this theft is the same theft as any other ... Thank God!
I owe a lot to the new lawyer and my good friend - which strongly support me all the time.
It ended up that my work will be completely withdrawn from sale. A man who distributed them was obliged to pay me compensation.
So I'm very happy.
It's not just about me. It's about every artist - that can meet such a situation. You can not impersonate someone and reap the benefits of hard work ...
I hope that those of you who will have a similar problem will not give up!

Does Intelligence Play a Role In Creativity?Today I'd like to share a highly insightful article by Tanner Christensen from creativesomething.net entitled "The Relationship Between Creativity and Intelligence." Here's some of what he has to say:Does Intelligence Play a Role In Creativity?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Intelligence is classically defined as "the ability to acquire and utilize knowledge."
Creativity is the ability to come up with new ideas through a mental process of connecting existing concepts. The ideas don't have to be revolutionary (which is a common misconception many people have about creative thinking), they just have to be new for the thinker.
Intelligence certainly plays a part in creative thinking, but not how you might expect. ... Intelligence only gets you so far when it comes to creativity. To be creative is to pull existing knowledge into a new situation and quickly sort through potenti

Yamcha the Scar-faced bandit LYRICS(Sung to the tune of Rudolph the red nosed reindeer):Yamcha the Scar-faced bandit LYRICS4 years ago in Personal More Like This
You know Goku and Gohan and Chiaotzu and Tien
Vegeta and Nappa Piccolo and Krillin
But do you recall?
The most useless fighter of all....
Yamcha the Scar-faced Bandit
Always beaten by his foes
And if you saw this guy fight
You would even say he blows
All of the other fighters..
Usually laugh and call him weak
That is because poor Yamcha
Knows nothing but defeat!!
On one weary battle day..
Yamcha came to play..
And just when he made a stand..
Oh look! There's a Saibaman!*KABOOM*
Then all the fighters shunned him..
And continued on their fight
Yamcha the Scar-faced Bandit
It is time to say goodnight!
