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

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.

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.

New Sonic fan comic by Darkspeeds!Time to get back into the game, it's been too long.New Sonic fan comic by Darkspeeds!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
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.

''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.

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
And now they're speaking FRENCH! XXDWoah! Thanks to Aysha for linking this to me! I love listening to my favourite characters speaking in other languages. The French version sounds so eloquent yet dramatic at the same time! I love it! XXD I especially like Tails in this, the kid who voiced him did a great job! And I'm amused at Sonic's "Woah woah woah!!" and Sonic and Tails' "Eggman. Boucle-la!" which equates to: "Eggman. SHUT YOUR TRAP!"And now they're speaking FRENCH!

I did the same thing in Cantonese. I basically had Sonic and Tails saying: "Dr. Bad Egg - Just shut up!!"
And yes I decided to call the doctor Dr. Bad Egg - Eggman in Cantonese literal translation sounds too funny after pronouncing it.

Let me begin by first apologizing to those of you who have left me notes, comments, or questions over the past few weeks. I have been absent for DA for an extended period of time due to real life priorities, and the stress doesn't look as though it is about to relent. While I will try to get back on top of my deviations and replies here, it will be slow-going and I can't promise to be around regularly.
As well as rushing to meet deadlines for my animation, I have also been organizing and setting up the LASALLE Show with my classmates, and as class representative for 2D animation I have been required to make a daily appearance at my college. The LASALLE Show doubles as a showcase to display the best works amongst the different faculties of the college, as well as being a graduation show for those of us in the 3rd year, which I am.

I Was Not Ready For This
What did I just sign myself up for?
I had never made, drawn, written, or created a book in my life, so this was all pretty foreign to me. I had told Heavy Metal publishing I'd do it on my own dime. Reason was, this was my project.
Not that I can't cooperate or collaborate, but this time I wanted to create what I saw in my head, and not have a voice behind me telling me what to do and what not to do. Kevin Eastman, head of HM Pub, was incredibly generous in this decision and told me to lead the way, and I tried my damnest.
So I started with the obvious fundamentals. What is the story of LMS?
Now, as a whole, LMS's simple logline is incredibly simple. A man who gets framed for a crime he didn't commit, breaks out of prison and goes after those
DECEMBER -SAGITTARIUSDECEMBER -SAGITTARIUS8 months ago in Personal 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
Hey Arnold reviewNow lets talk about 'Hey Arnold' and why I believe its one of the best western cartoons from the 90's. For those who do not know about the show or have never watched it, 'Hey Arnold' is about the life of a group of kids who live in a city thats very similar to Brooklyn. The main character, Arnold, is an imaginitive nine year old with a weird shaped head who lives in a boarding house with his crazy grandparents. As the show goes on, Arnold takes a backseat from the spotlight and the second protagonist Helga Pataki takes over due to her popularity (among other side characters as well).Hey Arnold review2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
On the outside, 'Hey Arnold' looks like an ordinary cartoon but what seperated it from other shows its the content and themes it explores. Its a very character driven/slice of life kind of show which gives it a sense of realism.
*Its gritty setting: Hey Arnold's setting is a city that resembles New York city, the place I was raised in. It does an incedible job in portraying the busy and intimidating atmosp
