New Challenge!GROUP NEWSNew Challenge!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
It's time to start our new challenge! This should be fun and I hope many of you have the time to participate. You'll have a lot of leeway, so don't be left out.
Now go and challenge yourself!
Our New Challenge
Our new challenge is called "Long Lovely Ladies" and it features the stock of delainestock, jlior, FairieGoodMother, magikstock, and TearzStock.
The #1 theme from the recent poll was fantasy, so this will be a fantasy theme challenge.
Please do not make a surreal or conceptual image. They are different from fantasy:
Fantasy is full of wonder or strange fancies. It is whimsical, full of magic, and more like a day dream.
This is a "scene" challenge. If you do not know the difference between a "scene" and a "design", please read the walk through here:

Nazmei Breeds List- One of the basic rules of this breed is that they only appear in certain breeds, older than 200 years and usually very sturdy and capable to thrive on their own, breeds that haven't been overly meddled with by humans.Nazmei Breeds List3 years ago in Personal More Like This
- No Thoroughbreds, no Quarter Horses, no American Paints and modern warmbloods. (other breeds that have been suggested but don't fit the grid: Connemara, Nokota, Gypsy Vanner, Georgian Grande, Clydesdale, Paso Fino).
- Crosses are possible to create a winged warmblood, but it would be a normal life span Nazmei aka SpNazmei. Read FAQ for more info
- Make sure you read about a breed before you suggest to be added. Suggestions for adding breeds that don't fit the grid (ex. less than 200 years old, to much human meddling) will be ignored from now on
- What is considered to be too much human meddling, is when they try to overly mold a breed and add all sorts blood into it to "improve it". To this you can add loads of inbreeding and kee

4. First ride.
5. Final: Discipline training.
While we only require five images, there is so much more that you can do to train your horse! If you want to go that extra mile, here are five more images that we would love to see!

Another Advice Journal: On CriticismI was taught, and have also learned through experience, that it is very important to take both compliments and criticism if you want to improve upon your skills as well as your business (should you have one).Another Advice Journal: On Criticism2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now compliments are always nice to receive. They bolster our confidence, they let us know that we're doing something that is pleasing to someone else out there other than ourselves. They're the fuzzy-feel-good stuff that keeps us going. Easy to accept, easy to build upon.
Criticism is equally as important. It's the yin to the yang and should not overpower our focus, but nor should we ignore it. Criticism let's us know that there are people out there that don't like what we're doing for some reason, and we may not agree with their point of view! But if you step back for a second, and just try to look at it through their eyes, and even just try to make the changes that the critic would like to see, you might discover a better way to do
Disaster in ZOO Prague - deliver Woxys projectHi pals.Disaster in ZOO Prague - deliver Woxys project2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am really sad to write this.
The Czech republic was hit by floods again. The event made the headlines of world press / news agentures.
Unfortunately, the flood damaged also ZOO Prague.
You know, ZOO Prague was hit by very serious flood in 2002. It totally destroyed the low part of the complex - although the ZOO was in touch with the responsible authorities, they were given a wrong estimation of the highest level of Vltava river. As a result, the ZOO staff did not have enough time to evacuate all the animals. Although the keepers often risked their lives (f.e. when the ZOO was already flooded, they used boats to transport the anesthetized gorillas, potentionally very dangerous animals, to safety), more than 100 animals died. It included a hippo, a lion, a young male gorilla, an elephant.... It was a terrible distaster and I already wrote a special journal about it: http://woxys.deviantart.com/art/Sad-memory-FLOODS-in-ZOO-Prague-Videos-234648958. The symbol of the flood in 200

Shekinah Valley Apassionata WINNERS-Judges Choice!Well trying to pick a judges choice reeeally sucks. And it's funny because the top top 3 of my favorites are all in the stunt category!! Go figure! Besides the obvious awesomeness of noblestallion's and abosz007 I think that Shotechi's work Circle of Fire is an amazing piece of artwork. To take on fire in color pencil takes guts and the lighting in this image is stunning, I love the "swoosh" of the lights and shadows. She didn't scrimp on details, even down to the textures in the dirt. So, though there were many amazing pieces in this contest, I have to say that my personal favorite is:Shekinah Valley Apassionata WINNERS-Judges Choice!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The website should have a "contact us" page, where you can find email addresses, contact forms, and they might also have a copyright policy page. Find out their email and how to contact them. You can also use http://www.whois.sc/ to search for the registered owner of the webpage, sometimes.
