Great Option: Copyright Free ImagesDid you know that there are tons of wonderful copyright free photos? They are called 'public domain images'. It takes a bit more to find the right one for your design (and the resolution is varied although not worse than a lot of DA stocks ), but hey, you don't have to worry about begging for model releases, waiting for permissions and so on! On the long run I bet you even save some time.Great Option: Copyright Free Images2 years ago in Personal More Like This

How to make your very own Helix Fossil PillowThese are INSTRUCTIONS on how to make a Helix Fossil Pillow like the one below. It is not a tutorial and I do not have pictures of the process because I didn't think of it when I was making it, and I'm not going to make another. You will need some previous knowledge of sewing to follow these instructions. I am absolutely not going to teach people to sew - there are lots of resources on the internet if that's what you want. I might add a doodled example pattern later, but that's pretty much all the help you'll get!How to make your very own Helix Fossil Pillow1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Plush kits are a go!edit: link to the original poll http://magnastorm.deviantart.com/journal/poll/4064436/ or here's a quick rundown;Plush kits are a go!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
These kits will include everything you need to make one of the following:
Chibi Wolpertinger , chibi Jackalope or a chibi Gemstone Dragon
The kits will include instructions, (cut?) fabric pieces, and in the case of Wolpertingers and Jackalopes a plastic nose or an acrylic gem for the Gemstone Dragons.
Considering the super positive response plush kits will happen!
These will probably not be available until January or so, unless I suddenly find myself with lots of free time to create the instructions after I move in about a week and a half. These would be available in limited numbers, just so I don't spend entire weeks cutting out pieces instead of working on commissions ahah. I'm thinking about limiting them to a certain number per two w
Redesign Hera's Believix Contest! EXTENDED! CLOSEDEdit: Will be announcing winners soon.Redesign Hera's Believix Contest! EXTENDED! CLOSED1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, it is I and I have decided to create a contest once again! I had a lot of fun with the previous contest and thought I should do another one. This contest will be a DESIGN CONTEST for Hera.
Basically, I hate the design. I've been thinking about it, and I don't like it anymore. So, I wanted to see what you guys can come up with!
Here is what you can do:
I want you to design a new outfit for Hera. You have to be aware that Hera is not a girly girl! She doesn't like wearing dresses or skirts! If she has short/pants underneath a skirt or something, that is acceptable.
You don't need to design wings to go with this! I really like her wings.
If you are feeling excited and are brimming full of ideas, you can design a Sophix and/or Lovix for her aswell.
The design can be coloured or non-coloured ( I prefer colour) on a mannequin or a full scale finished piece. Please Full-b

SenshiStock USB Drive 2.0! PREORDERS OPEN!April 15, 2014 UPDATE: USB 2.0 Preorders ARE OPEN:SenshiStock USB Drive 2.0! PREORDERS OPEN!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As a reminder, this will be a PREORDER. The drives will ship in May. Stay tuned on Thursday for the preorder link!
The SenshiStock USB drives have all the stock from Shoots 1-26 in them. It's about 3000 files, 4GB of stock and it's a quick way to have a huge selection of reference images on the go.
Since the release of the USB, people have asked about how to get the stock that was shot after Shoot 26. Much of the post-Shoot 26 stock is being sold through advance download packs on SenshiStock.com. They rotate every 6 weeks and once a pack comes down, it's gone until it starts getting posted to the DA gallery.
However, there's still a LOT of stock that isn't going into those packs for various reasons. That other stock is stuck in limbo, waiting for its turn

Are you ready?
...are you sure?
Well, It's finally here....
Hi everybody, SepticSkeptik here with my newest, super-sized contest. Now, I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm going on vacation, so this contest will be 2 weeks long, rather than my usual weekly contests. There's still going to be a loose theme, but it's just going to last twice as long. So, without further fucking around ...
This contest's loose-theme is music.
So this will be a bit different than usual. You can use a drumset, a xylophone, note symbols, real cymbals, lyrics, spoons, make a picture of an artist, etc., whatever associates with music. I'm just trying to stretch the boundries of the loose-theme a bit; make it a bit broader. So you could still make a kick ass picture of a blood-thirsty pinecone, devouring a squirrel, and have a tiny guitar by your name, i
OCs in Dash Academy and News!First of all, happy new year!OCs in Dash Academy and News!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's an info-packed update:
You may have noticed that the linework in the last two comic updates (part 5 and 6) looks a lot smoother. That's because I've switched over to Paint Tool SAI, an amazing program with tablet pressure sensitivity and stabilizers that actually work.
Here's the really sweet part: I purchased it with the donations you've been sending. Thank you! Your donations are helping to improve the quality of the comic. I'm trying to scrape together $170 to upgrade my old copy of Photoshop CS2 (which is a nightmare to run on Windows 7 64 bit) to CS5, which will greatly hasten the process of making panels, gradients, and ovals for speech bubbles. If you'd like to help, here is your chance!
I've been getting questions about how I pick OCs for background ponies.

Welcome back to my page after being inactive for so long. I was beginning to wonder now that I think about it if you had forgotten me. 'Cause I kinda forgot about you. Sorry.
Look, and I'm sorry to have to tell you this, I actually don't come on deviantart just because of you... as you do for me obviously. I know, I know... if only I would write back to your comments and take the flirtatious bait. I guess I'm just not that into you.
I come here to supply an art resource to hobby and serious artists. Unfortunately, your gallery of pathetic attempts of "art" (and I use the word loosely) - or none at all - really doesn't classify you as that group of people.
I understand. I really do. You feel such an emptiness in your life that you feel the need to comment on a strangers photos things like:
You're such a fat cow.
I love your toes.
You're ugly as sin.
Can you hog-tie yourself in a maids outfit and put an apple in your mouth?

>>What would you do if you get the chance to be someone important. Someone who protect where nobody should go through. A portal which need a guardian. A guardian with strong power, courage and wisdom. Everything can be learned but would you do it?
Remember! You will loose your power as soon as you accepted the challenge. You will start from zero. You have to learn everything again in the guardian school where you can find friends and as well enemies. Everyone wants to be a guardian and there aren't portals for everyone. Will you start to change your destiny?<<

this was your doing and you have my sincere thanks.
i did not expect this. sunstone was never supposed to be a moneymaker project and will continue to be a free webcomic to it's very end. but your support meant a lot
last year was tough...
you noticed that my output was significantly lower...well... in the number of strips, but taking into consideration the much longer strips of chapter 4, difference is not that drastic.
there was a reason for this. i kept alluding to a family health crisis. i prefer to keep these things to myself
but now that this is behind us, i can say what made a mess of the year
my mom was diagnosed with a severe heart condition. day before book 1 came out she was admitted to hospital to have stents implanted and the procedure was a success.
last year i was operating under a constant prepare for the worst case scenario kind of pressure.

so, 2014 was both amazing and crappy. those who were paying attention noticed a recurring theme of me mentioning a family health issue that made me focus on paid work in 2014
i don't like sharing details about this so i will leave it at this.
this has improved. it is not resolved but there is optimism.
which is good for sunstone as i can focus on this more !
so as things are looking right now, chapters 5 and 6 will be done this year with some bonus stuff. in a week or so i will post the final strip of chapter 4 in which we finish destroying what was built on poor unstable foundation. and then...
chapter 5. in which a month and three weeks after their first encounter you get to see the moment
after that we will take a step back into the past as for the story to progress, you will need to understand alan....and to do that we will show his time in college with ally, their fallout and reuniting, his t
