Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!March 17th is traditionally known as St. Patrick's Day, a time to celebrate the Irish, feast, and enjoy all things green. It commemorates Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Among numerous achievements, St. Patrick banished all snakes from Ireland, at least according to legend. Today, there are parades around the world to celebrate the day. And for many, St. Patrick's Day is a reminder that spring is on its way!Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

On the sky of December appears beautiful Sagittarius Constellation.
So, let's see! :icontruesmiles:
People born under the sign of Sagittarius are free of hypocrisy, kind and charming and sometimes become idols of world. They do not consider it necessary to comply with the generally accepted rules and restrictions. Natives of Sagittarius (22 November-21 December) are independent, love to travel and adventures, love to read, are very active and energetic and get public recognition of their merits.
The symbol of this sign represents the native as half man, half horse (a centaur), which says that there are two fundamental trends in his personality, one human and another animal, whose imbalance can guide them toward missionary in the service of people, primitiveness in thinking and behavior. Based on these characteristics, this zodiac sign, can be structured and split it in two types . The

It Will Burn by: sugarpoultry
Really shows the raw talent that sugarpoultry pulls from her mind. Making you feel the emotion. The pose and composition of this piece is outstanding.
The lighting and the detail are brilliant. There is no stone unturned with this piece.
sugarpoultry was a new deviant to me a year or so ago and I haven't stopped admiring her work sense. She brings a fresh coat of paint to a new canvas with how she portrays her anthro work. From her snarly werewolves to her anthro costumes she delivers such a great atmosphere and variety to her gallery. She is ready and willing to help and provide what she can for her fellow deviants.

She wiped my link and my signature on the picture http://savepic.org/3490989.jpg
She said http://savepic.org/3537057.jpg But I do not know this person. And I do not have an account on the tumbler and instagram.
She claims that she is the author of this artwork o_o And I took her permission for use of this artwork O_O It's all a lie. She is not only a thief but a liar too.
When she was asked to remove my artwork, she just made her profile private. But before that, I made a screenshot of her gallery. http://savepic.ru/4558312.jpg And I still can open stolen picture (because I still have the old opened window with her galleries before she made this private) http://instagram.com/p/Y_BL2bzepl/

Fixed the blunder in the title. Herp derp. There are 250 points up for grabs, not 200.
Less people are asking me for points now, so I think I shall hold a contest.
Favorite this journal.
Comment. Actually say something. No spam. I don't mind if it's just a "Hello!" It doesn't need to be meaningful or anything, just no "HUDFSDFHUDDUSH" comments. They will not count.
If you are not watching me at the moment, then you must watch me.
ONE ACCOUNT ONLY. Listen, I don't want you to enter mule accounts or plz accounts. That is utterly unfair.

"There are 5 things you need to know," he told the pencil, "Before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be."
"One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone's hand."
"Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you'll need it to become a better pencil."
"Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make."
"Four: The most important part of you will always be what's inside."
"And Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write."
The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart.

Thoughts on the 'Hobbit Cartoon Study'Much like the pin-up series I showcased last week, this was a little thought experiment I did during the 6 months I was absent. I was having a very hard time motivating myself to draw anything and this was something I tried to do for myself as a therapeutic exercise.Thoughts on the 'Hobbit Cartoon Study'2 years ago in Personal More Like This
One of the things that was tricky to deal with was the awkward hands. The Rankin Bass cartoon has very stylized grizzly hands which are drawn entirely counterintuitive to how I would naturally draw them. I frequently looked for specific hand gestures from the cartoon and used those to help draw them here. They presented quite a challenge.
The other challenge was to try and illustrate backgrounds that the cartoon characters would be laid into, much like real cel animation. I wanted to mimic the cartoon as best I could and that meant rendering painted backgrounds. I had some new brushes I was trying out at the time and, to be honest, the backgrounds I came up with weren't quite the watercolor/inked hybrid of the 1977 movie.

Obviously, the theme is Halloween.
But, there will be certain things that we will be looking for:
1. Great Color Palette- We want it bright and colorful!
2. If you go horror, go all the way- guts, brains, we will love to see it
3. We would love to see your dark side- want to be a bit twisted? Go for it, within reason of course
(I mean, I don't want to see decapitated babies, omg, I'd cry)
4. We want to see something original. Yeah, cannon characters and stories are great, but we want to see YOU!
5. We want to see that you had fun with it!

Top 10 favorite animated ladies - 1!1) Harley Quinn (Harleen Quinzel): from Batman the Animated series voiced by Arleen Sorkin.Top 10 favorite animated ladies - 1!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'm having a BAD DAY! I'm sick of people trying to shoot me, run me over or blow me up!
So we have arrived at the end of my list, and the number one spot is occupied by no other than the flawless Harley Quinn. This character was so likable, so dynamic that she stepped up from being a throw away side character to one of Batman's most popular and memorable villainesses. Harley got her start in the Batman animated series but she was such a big hit that DC considered her canon in the comic verse and she was used in multiple spin offs as well. While there are many versions of this character (and many voice actresses), my favorite has always been the original.
To those who do not know who Harley Quinn is or are unfamiliar with the Batman universe, I shall enlighten you. Harley Quinn is the Joker's side kick and girlfriend. She is insane and completely obsessed with him even though she'

How this is gonna work is each episode will contain stories that span from 5-10 pages. It will be based off from a combination of the TV show, video game and self initiatives (i.e. my own ideas). :iconhappyaggro: has just finished revising my original script to episode one and I was really impressed with her editing. Just 10 minutes and I got suggestions that already improved some of the dialogue I've used on each page - brilliant.
I would like to keep this as an ongoing series and until we find out more about the TV show and video game I can get a better idea of what's legit and can be used in the comic to stay true to the series, whilst at the same time, try to come up with new content too.
I also have ideas of Sonic and co. having bigger and proper adventures that could potentially span to a three episodic structure. Better not jump the gun and stick with the debut episode.

The Disney Vault - Elsa analysisThe cold never bothered me anyway...The Disney Vault - Elsa analysis1 year ago in Personal More Like This
At last we have reached the final Disney Princess released so far: Elsa! (from Frozen)
Like I mentioned in Anna's post, I'm not going to discuss too much about Frozen's production since there is an overwhelming amount of info. However in Elsa's case, I will go in a bit more detail since she is without a doubt the star of the film.
Elsa is based on two characters from the original Snow Queen tale; she is based on the Snow Queen (duh), and Kai. Therefore she's the first Disney Princess who is based on a villain AND a male character from the source material. The Snow Queen's role in the original fairytale was her desire for companionship so she freezes the heart of a boy named Kai and kidnaps him to her castle. She is more neutral than evil and in many ways she is the personification of winter. Disney found the original tale too difficult to adapt because the Snow Queen was a difficult character to portray on the big screen (th

''I could load the data of every opponent I fight and take them apart one by one,
but whats the point after its all over?''
So here we go, first anime character on the list.
If you google search Renamon you will probably get a lot of furry porn concerning this character. She's a furry icon in a way but I had no idea until I searched her up in deviantart. Anyhow, lets get to Renamon and my experiences concerning the Digimon fanbase.
As a kid I watched the first three seasons of Digimon from begining to end. I never missed an episode, it was what the Pokemon anime SHOULD'VE been. My favorite season was the third one due to its dark nature and complex storyline. I highly recommend this series HOWEVER do not watch the English dub. I used to watch the Latin american Spanish dub which is extremely similar to the Japanese version so I just assumed the English version will be similar but...no. Its really dumbed down, most of the vo
Top ten WORST Disney Sequels: 8!8) Pocahontas II: Journey to a new worldTop ten WORST Disney Sequels: 8!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once upon a time there was an animation company named Disney, that made our childhoods awesome. They reached their peak when their animated film 'Beauty and the Beast' became the first animated feature nominated for Best Picture in the Academy awards, and just when their luck couldn't be better they released 'The Lion King' which became one of the highest grossing animated pictures of all time. During this streak of awesome movies, Disney became overly ambitious and desired yet another Best Picture Oscar. Instead of perfecting the formula they were best at (fairy tales) they decided that they needed to be extra pretentious to snag that Best Picture Award, thus 'Pocahontas' was born. Now how can a company who is known to adapt fairytales going to adapt a real life story? By making it extremely historically inaccurate of course! Audiences were bored, critics were unimpressed and Pocahontas was shunned as the black sheep of the Disney Reness

Regarding my views on the LGBT communitySo Lately It has come to my attention that there has been some confusion regarding my views on gay rights and the LGBT community. I would like to take the time to type up another journal to clear some things up.Regarding my views on the LGBT community1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am a supporter of the LGBT community, I am a supporter of Gay Rights. I am in no way homophobic, or any variation of the sort.
Some of you may be wondering why i am posting this, it is regarding a mistake that i had made a couple of years ago.
About 4 years ago, i posted a really nasty shout it out, which is in point the central cause of the confusion. It was followed by a journal explaining my views and how i felt at the time, and I had stated that i had considered myself homophobic, as well as making a couple of extremely inappropriate racial comments and opinions.
With a heavy heart, i strongly regret everything that i said, and everything that i did involving that stupid submission that i posted. I was young, and di
