Thanks to all who entered!
For this contest you'll be illustrating any fantasy/mythical creature under 2 ft (0.60m) in height!
Read on for more details!
- You can make up a creature or use an actual myth as your inspiration. If you use an actual myth/legend, you'll get 7 extra points toward your voting score.
Classic literature *does NOT* count as a myth or legend. Things like Hans Christian Anderson tales, Tolkien, etc. are not myths. If it has an original author who wrote it then it's most likely not a myth. Myths and legends are stories that develop over time by word of mouth to ex

IrisIris, Most Beautiful FlowerIris2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Iris, most beautiful flower,
Symbol of life, love, and light;
Found by the brook, and the meadow,
Or lofty, on arable height.
You come in such glorious colors,
In hues, the rainbow surpass;
The chart of color portrays you,
In petal, or veins, of your class.
You bloom with the first in Winter,
With the last, in the Fall, you still show;
You steal the full beauty of Springtime,
With your fragrance and sharp color glow.
Your form and beauty of flower,
An artist's desire of full worth;
So Iris, we love you and crown you,
MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOWER ON EARTH!

Snippy: poem of doomI've a lot of time on my hands living inside the whale and such. ....So, today I wrote a poem about Captain:Snippy: poem of doom4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Oh Captain, my Captain! I say it to mock,
You're lucky as hell but to me you're a c***.
Please spare me the missions, I've no head for heights,
Balloons and big lists lead me only to blights.
Evading the probes of an alien race,
Then having to witness your > : ( angry face...
But what choice have I? I'm involved in these fights,
With Cancerous space-monsters full of red sprites,
And Lemonade weirdos and God knows what next,
Just how can you stay so serene and unvexed?
What price should I pay for your simple delights,
Be eaten by whales after soiling my whites?
I know you won't listen, but you'll come unstuck,
And one of these days you'll run right out of luck,
Your empire will fall, and your ego besides,
It's karma for sure, like the turn of the tides,
And then I will lol, sitting in my own muck,
Coz after all this I just won't

JosephI was looking back at the comments and image I did way back and I thought some more about Joseph (Patriarch Jacob's son)...Joseph8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Joseph wasn't just a pretty face. He had such a sight beyond sight, seeing things the way God did. How else could he sustain his sanity for about 40 years in an EGYPTIAN prison and before that, getting sexually harassed for YEARS by his boss' wife, and BEFORE that being sold into slavery by his own brothers. Not only that but he didn't live life on the defensive and grow bitter but made use of his time and resources wherever he was. Of course he must have had many moments of despair and anger. He was far away from his land and family (back when that was all you had) but it didn't control him at the end. He always did his best and exercised his gifts diligently. He saw things as opportunities no matter how small and mundane they were. His life story means a whole lot more to me now that I'm older. I have to figh

Tuesday Tips #2 Scanning your ArtworkWelcome to the second edition of Tuesday Tips where we at :iconrising-artists: try to make your deviant life easierTuesday Tips #2 Scanning your Artwork2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today we will be discussing how to scan and post edit your artwork.
Many times a camera won't pick up all the minuscule details in your piece, but a scanner will.
However, often times scanners come with one or two major drawbacks
-The scanning process looses a lot of color quality
-Your artwork is too big for your scanner bed.
So, lets talk about these two problems and how we can solve them.
What you need:
Photo Editing software (GIMP, PS, CS+..etc)
If your artwork is bigger than your scanner bed, never fear, solutions are here! While I figured out this trick on my own, some deviants figured it out long before I did and made AWESOME tutorials that cover every point I wanted to share with you all.
If your wondering about images that are larger then the one used in the tutorial, check out how I sca

'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 4 - ShadingSo apologies first – sorry! I know this is a week late, but I have been busy – honest'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 4 - Shading2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This week's episode will cover how to fill in your drawing outline – or at least how I will 'fill-in' my drawing outline. I was a little disappointed that not many requested the reference picture – so I guess that not many are following along, not to worry I will continue to detail the steps I have taken, and perhaps it will provide a useful reference to some people in the future. Remember these are not definitive ways to draw - just the way that I draw, I am sure it is not the 'best' the 'easiest' or the most 'professional' - it is just the way I draw
So first to basics, almost every journal, art-teacher, tutorial etc. will tell you to start at the top left hand corner of a drawing (right hand if your left handed)
The idea being that you not smudge the work as you work downwards and across the paper. However I would like to mention a couple of things, firstly even though you do this, make s

Italian Masters of Horror
Zombie by liliesformary
Giallo is Italian for yellow… and Horror
In the wake of the real life horrors meted out on Italians during World War II, brutalized by Mussolini and then by Nazi occupation and then having their country used as one great battleground chessboard between Nazis and the invading U.S. and Allied forces, there was for a long time little appetite for horror in movies. It wasn’t until 1956 that the first genuine horror film (a vampire story) was produced and released. It bombed, soundly rejected by the public. The film would be of little note

ARIES: Leader Of The Flock
Zodiac Sign Aries
The concept of Astrology or “study of the stars” has been around since the ancient world and can be traced as far back as the first dynasty of Mesopotamia.
For some, the stars are a portent of the future and help inform one of the best course of action to take based on the stars’ alignment. If born under a specific “star” or month during the year you may have certain characteristics and mannerisms that correspond to a horos

ALL DESCRIPTIONS WERE TAKEN FROM NICK'S SITE
I know this dude is the first Avatar ever, named Wan, this is just the description that the Nick site put to the image
Perhaps this nomadic rogue might tag along with our favorite team soon, but whether he's good or bad is too early to say...
This mystical creature has a lot of limbs to go around, but it looks like he'll have a much deeper role to play...
The Avatar world is filled with awesome animal hybrids, just like this one. Could he be a new sidekick?
This looks like the perfect spot to meditate on the best bending techniques!
In the Avatar world, beautiful scenery can be found at every turn.
This is the perfect spot for the Avatar to overlook the city, and make sure both Benders and non-Benders are living

Because my deviantART page is very new I thought I would encourage people to add me to their watchlist. I am giving away 400 points to a random person on my watchlist. So basically all you need to do to enter is add me to your watchlist and write a comment on this journal saying you would like to enter. Sharing this journal, favouriting it, or adding a link to this giveaway to your journal would be appreciated too.
Also, would people prefer more chances to win some points or just one person get 400 points? I could have 4 lots of 100 points, 8 lots of 50 points, or one lot of 400? I will give the points away in the way that is most popular to you guys. I will choose a winner/s at random from the comments on this journal on the 17th of October.
Have a good day everyone
p.s. If anyone ever wants advice or help on their work feel free to leave me a comment with a link to your work a
