Life is ..Life is …
Life is the space between your ears,
Life is the song that no one hears,
Life is the place that only you know,
Life is the grass growing through snow,
Life is the touch of a lover's hand,
Life is a castle melting in sand,
Life is the laugh that's stuck in your throat
Life is a poem that god wrote
Life is the shiver on a warm night,
Life is like death, only not quite.
Interview with :devpreethi524:preethi524 is a young artist from India, who creates stunning pieces of art with pencils. Not by using them to draw, but making the pencils themselves the focus of her art. But see for yourself....Interview with :devpreethi524:1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hello preethi524, could you tell us a bit about yourself, please? Where did the idea of pencil carving come from?
Before I start, I would like to extend my sincerest thanks and appreciation to :iconArtisanCraft: and :icondigikijo: for giving me this wonderful opportunity..!! I feel truly privileged to be placed among the chosen ones for the interview, if you may say so
Getting back to the question,

The thing is: There are far too few stories where the reader and the country in question already have a relationship. And, when they do, the emotional bonding and everyday life almost never takes place.
And, as a matter of fact, every couple has its quirks and problems every now and them. It's not always an easy thing to maintain the couple as a couple, and you can pretty much dream of strangling the very same person you would gladly walk down the aisle with (sometimes, the wishes are simultaneous, but let's not enter that discussion, alright? ). Yeah, it's possible, believe in me.
My challenge is: show me a piece of a relationship. Make me believe that the love you're writing about is real, that the routine is believable, to the point where the both have an aura of their own (Have you ever noticed that old couples have that? Sometimes,
The Misunderstandings CONTEST!!!That's right, I'm having another contest! I've wanted to have one for a while, but I never knew what theme to make it. Now, I have the perfect idea!The Misunderstandings CONTEST!!!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Theme: Basically, I want you guys to write a countryxreader insert where a misunderstanding plays a big part! For example, England may want to date the reader, but thinks she already has a boyfriend, when she doesn't. Maybe Germany hears something the reader says over the phone and thinks she's cheating on him, when in reality, she isn't. Here's an exampea from a story of mine where there is a misunderstanding- http://roro0098.deviantart.com/art/NorwayxShy-Reader-REQUEST-391793942?q=gallery%3Aroro0098%2F44305070&qo=16
The story can go anywhere you want it to, maybe with the misunderstanding being solved, or having it be the cause of big problems for the reader that get out of hand. I'd like there to be as much detail as you can have! There can be as much romance, fluff, angst, and sadness as you want! Also, when you are ent
Nordic Countries CONTEST!I've been thinking about starting a contest for awhile, so I decided to start one today.Nordic Countries CONTEST!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
This will be an easy contest, well....easy in my opinion. Lately, I've fallen in love with the Nordic countries, but there aren't too many countryxreader stories about them. So that is why I started this contest.
Just a few rules:
1. The story must be a countryxreader, with the country being one of the five Nordic countries (Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Finland)
2. You can include any country you want, but the main country or countries must be the Nordics.
3. The story can be a countryxreaderxcountry story, but one of those countries must be a Nordic.
4. I will take lemons, but they must have a mature content warning. If they do not have a warning, they'll be disqualified.
5. A happy or good ending is preferred, but not required.
First Place- Three countryxreader fanfics written by :iconroro0098:, or a series with three to six chapters,

Alright, guys, this time I think I want to do something slightly different.
So: A contest! :iconherolaplz:
Well, the thing is: I am in love with songs in general, and so being, I love songfics, or stories that somehow have music in them.
That's the challenge. You'll say to me you want to participate, and I'll send you a song. You can put it as the background (the characters are listening, someone mentions it, used as a quote on the beginning of the story - but it has to make sense with the overall plot, or even a verse can be used as a line) or make a songfic. Anyway you prefer to do it, however the song must appear on your story.
The prizes (If you want to donate a prize, I'd be very happy to accept it. ):
3 reader inserts request, or a series, up to five chapters, at most, written by me. I don't do lemons, though, a

------Well, I got lazy and most of it was bought and altered. The pants were just a cheap pair from DEB that I cut and hemmed, the Tank top came from Wal-mart and got the same treatment as the pants, and the net shirt was from Hot Topic, and I cut off the sleeves. As for the socks, they are knee-socks....I just cut off some in the front and the heels. since my socks were kinda thin, I have 2 layers of them, and they are sewn together were they were cut.

When I first saw this, I immediately thought about how much turmoil you can go through in a relationship and the amount of passion you must have to endure through rough times. The impact was really strong for me.

I love this pose of two lovers being intimately close. The expression and passion are strong in the top character's eyes and the one on the bottom has such a reassuring embrace.

Payments must be done VIA PAYPAL only! you must get a credit card and being signed up to the paypal website.
Pay me before I start drawing.
Im specialized in doujinshi x"DDD
The price doesnt change if it's a full-body, a head shot or other shots. All that matters is the coloring style.
Commissions are my hobby, this means that often there could be delays for the delivery of the finished work, but in any case I will always advice you before you pay me and inform you approximately how long it's gonna take me to finish Then you decide if you're gonna agree or not.
If you commission me, then it means you chose me for my STYLE. I can try to change my style a bit for you, but only until a certain point. Also consider my style might change a bit during the years, so try to refer always to the most recent works.

Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.
