Happy new year!It's a little late post here, but here's a sketch I did for new years (: Thank you guys for your support through 2014!Happy new year!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've had a rough year, especially in the first half. Life is not the same this year, and for someone who has been used to being able to dedicate 100% of her time to work and nothing else, challenging family relationship strains and adapting to life with a girlfriend was difficult--even if it was a good change and great learning experience. I'm not nearly as prolific as before, and sometimes I even find it difficult to be as creative as before, because I can no longer afford to think about my work as much. In contrast, I learned a lot more about taking care of others and myself, even if what I learned was how little I know about taking care of others and myself. Instead of contemplating my story and characters, I thought more about how hard it is to be kind and understanding. I tried really hard to make myself be more compassionate; my aloof nature made it so that very

Carciphona volume 1 sold out not long ago, and I’ve finally restocked those this week!Shipping prices lowered as promised in the past month!
I’ve been working on figuring out a new shipping company last month, and I am ready (I think LOL MAYBE) to switch over! Shipping has always been the bane of my shop because I’m in Canada. I’ve got tons of questions about it in the past year that range from confused to outraged. But it’s in my best interest to find ways to lower shipping prices, because while some people are in such disbelief that Canadian shipping can be that bad (it can) might even think that I bloat shipping prices to make more money, high shipping costs actually makes me lose business because SURPRISE, no one wants to buy overpriced things.
The new company ships through USPS which means I can lower shipping prices to USA by as much as 70%

Elon Musk might be the most prolific inventor and entrepreneur since Thomas Edison — that’s a somewhat ironic comparison for a man who named his company after Edison’s greatest rival, but there’s some truth to it. Musk has something of a deranged genius persona. He’s known for investing in risky companies like the priv

Pour this mixture into the pie crust, and refrigerate until the jell-o is set.

New Username SymbolsAs part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.New Username Symbols2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

This was a drawing challenge from :iconSenshiStock: and :iconmostlyguystock:!
Hands and feet are pretty hard to draw. Lots of artists struggle with them! Even when other things come naturally, hands and feet can still be quite a problem. The best way to get better at drawing hands and feet is to study them!
The Challenge: Sketch or draw 50 feet AND 50 hands from reference photos or life.
Deadline: The deadline has passed for this challenge, but you can still participate and make yourself a better artist!
You can post them as one giant post, in groups, one at a time, however you want! But please make a FOLDER in your gallery and put them all in there then send me a link to the folder. (If you do one submission with ALL of them at once, then you don't need the folder.)
HOW TO QUALIFY: In order to make this a little easier for myself, please number yo

Wow, this group has been growing fast. Thank you for joining, y’al! We try to invite as many of you as possible to create a nice group filled with talent.
To select even more outstanding work from all of you, we closed the Featured folder. Here is why. Many of you submit to the folder, even more than one deviation at a time. We just don’t want to decline your great work, even though it’s more than worthy to join our other folders. We truly want to feature the most amazing work. We want to make It a prestige to featured, so this is how we’ll do it:
We closed the Featured folder, but we will select the deviations that we deem worthy by hand. We will look at every single deviation that’s submitted, and we decide on that. We will post a journal with the photos that got into the featured folder on the group page every Sunday or Monday.
Here are the photos have been selected so far.

OC cosplayA little bla about OCsOC cosplay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want to dedicate this entry to my OC (own character) who I mentioned in previous journal entries. <3 Before I started cosplaying I used to draw and write many own stories. One character that I created when I was around 11 or 12 remained in my head (and heart) ever since. Her name is Love Princess - which is a pretty ridiculous, childish name, I admit. XD But hey, as I said, I was 12. And she's a magical girl, so don't laugh! XP (Her non-magical girl name is Anshie Shinohara by the way. ;D So now you know, where I got my nickname from.)
The story of Love Princess is about the "dark side" of a magical girl life. She's a girl who seems to have everything: Looks, money, supernatural power... but actually she has nothing: No friends, no free time, no good grades at school... Just the constant fear to get killed by demons. ^^" And as if that wouldn't be enough, she even falls in love with her biggest enemy. Her pink outfit and cute name are actually just a contras

What kind of photos magazine need

After that I will ask you for the big resolution photos (best is not smaller than 2574x3875 , small photos is bad for printing as you know.) So, please dont send photos that you dont have in a big resolution.

But people's recent comments make me want to keep it.
What do you guys think? any ideas?
Or perhaps my works are just dull...
I dislike my weeaboo username and disorganized gallery. I kind of want to move accounts but I have so much crap Id have no where to start....
It was one of the reasons I started a website (several times) though I am much too lazy and not proficient enough in css to keep it up...
I dont know. Im just lazy in general, and it shows. everything around me used to be so lively, but perhaps its just me.
I dont know. Would you guys mind if I submitted sketches/wip dumps? Maybe I just need to be more active, even if the quality isnt what I want it to be. I just have to ride this out until I can get going on the projects that I want....

Spines and Backbones
“Backbone” as a metaphor has always evoked determination, strength of character, toughness of spirit.
It is also an indicator of alignment, of being on the right track, of having everything in life in functioning order. “Breaking” one’s back means utter devastation, paralysis, losing everything. Being “spineless” is perhaps the worst insult any man would care to ever hear about himself. And then there’s the
On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

Skeletons simultaneously attract and repulse us, much like the contemplation of our one day inevitable deaths.
We would like to as much as possible shut out thoughts of our mortality, even though it is the one thing all human beings have common — the price of being alive is to know we will one day die. Skeletons are always there to remind us of this one grim universally equalizing reality, an iron
