Contest Starts: Now! X3
Contest will end: 10/15/13
Yup She can go SSJ as well, (I havent drawn any of her other than the image above though)
You may view my gallery for more idea's on Ciel if you like. Even As a kid!
You can also draw her with canon characters from the show if you like =3
Stubborn,playful,flirty,laid back, loves fighting,loyal,dependable
Any drawing type or style is accepted, be it traditional, or digital. I'd prefer colored images unless you do good detailed shading with Black and white. Also if the images of her could be half to full body, I feel it takes away from her by doing only bust and head shots.
When you post the image, please post the ownership of Ciel's character to me =3 And dont steal other artists idea's or work, Its just not nice. I post a link to the sites and images I use as Ref. So those kinds of things are fi

I Got A DailyMotion Account!What with YouTubes new policies dragging its own website into the dust, it's good to have insurance. So in the event that my YouTube becomes completely uninhabitable, here's a link to my new DailyMotion profile. Now don't worry. I don't plan on leaving YouTube. But if these policies start getting so out of hand that I have no choice in the future, my DailyMotion will be the place to go next. Well, beside the new website coming soon. There's not much on there yet, but I'm uploading some of my newest content on there to get it started. So just sit tight and relax as I work on the new WHOOKOS, A.E.

Eu não sou a melhor pessoa para passar dicas à alguém. Na verdade, eu nem me considero suficientemente capaz de dar algum ensinamento. Mas eu sempre fui muito curiosa e interessada com o mundo da pintura digital, ficando horas e horas e horas assistindo vídeos de 2 horas de duração no Youtube, livestreams intermináveis, a fim de aprender. Apesar da necessidade de se ter uma paciência (de ouro), foi o que mais me ajudou a aprender e a desenvolver os meus conhecimentos. Criando esse hábito, acabei conhecendo e desenvolvendo as técnicas que apresento hoje nos meus trabalhos. Provavelmente como muitos de vocês que agora me leem, cheguei a pedir a ajuda de muuitos artistas que eu admirava, e alguns até me ajudaram como podiam, mas a maioria simplesmente não se importa com o quanto

So according to the poll most people said they'd like the idea of creating a school-like group. Some of them wanted it to be a serious, well organized group and that is what me and my friends decided to do.

Where the idea came from:
In the past I was teaching teens and children in Poland to draw. But it was different, traditional and I didn't use tutorials to teach (just fist :iconimveryhappyplz:. Then I went where they paid me more, to the journals, publishing houses etc. And guess what. I ended up on DA doing commissions and I always felt very comfortable here, that comfortable that I decided to share my knownledge in some teaching groups. But sadly non of them was the group I was looking for:

We have only known each other for 6 weeks, and I have already come to kind of adore you. But there are certain things I've yet to understand.
You don't seem to respect any boundaries. I know you're a baby and all, but how many times will you run out into the living room, amongst company, chewing on my underwear? How do you even get my underwear? Why is it so fascinating to you? D: :iconstunplz:
I tried to follow what the other dog owners said to train you to sleep in your little crate. But you screamed and carried on like I was sawing your leg off, all night. This is an apartment building, and I have neighbours to think about, and I think you know that. I even tried to sleep on the floor in front of your crate, where you could easily see me, but that ONE barrier (the door on your crate), seemed to drive you mental. Like that thin piece of plastic was a stone wall 4 metres thick . Or like the Wall in Game of Thrones. :ico

Poetic Terms and TechniquesPoetic terms and techniquesPoetic Terms and Techniques1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
This article aims to give you a brief introduction to some poetic terms with which you can bemuse your friends and nonplus your enemies. Try and sling some of these terms into a casual conversation and watch the ensuing confusion.
If you don't want to confuse people, you could use these terms to discuss poetry like a badass
while smoking unfiltered cigarettes in a French cafe, when critiquing, or to give your own poetry a bit of a vajazzle.
These terms are arranged vaguely into alphabetical order for your convenience. Some of them will be covered in more detail in other articles throughout the week.
Alliteration (see also Sibilance)
Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds, often used for a specific effect in poetry.

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way, no rigid process you must adhere to, no shoulds or shouldn'ts except those you designate for yourself. This is one of the fun parts of being an artist, really - have a heady good time with it.
Dreamtalia Trivia! [Update]Like I stated on my string of screenshots if ya'll saw them, since we're on hiatus we dont have a monthly sneak peak into the games current look. So instead I decided to do another thing once a month! Trivia! Little fun facts about the behind the scenes of the game and its origins. I'll be updating once every month! Let's get this going!Dreamtalia Trivia! [Update]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Fun Fact #1:
Shadow Italy was originally not part of the game.
As in the form of Shadow Italy, the Fauchereve was still very much there, just the thought of a creepy shadow italy wasn't part of the original process. The Fauchereve was not planned to be really sighted until chapter 8 when he appeared as Sweden. It's that reason why Shadow Italy wasn't featured on the title card, it was made before his conception. However one day, Kyo had a odd daydream of Germany having a foreshadowing vision about a really disturbing Italy in order to make him check on Italy to see he was in a coma, Piano digged the idea so Kyo brought up Italy's sprite s

-Fui a una escuela en el extranjero de dibujo
-Maestros legendarios me han enseñado todo lo que saben.
-Soy el niño elegido del dibujo por capricho de los dioses, por eso se dibujar.

How to use, how to change and edit brushes, how to colour, how to ink, how to smooth ink. How to get the copic markers, and symmetry and whatever else. The how to. How to open and arrange windows as well. First all the functions and where everything is, then drawing.
Open. Grab the top of your tool bars and arrange to something cosy. Marker in red is where to click and drag your tool panels. Grabbing the outter edges of most of the tool pannels will move it about.
The tools marked in red, the white and black puck. When you click and hold then drag in/out or up/down on the white puck it will change the size of your brush, if enabled in preferences it can also change your brush opacity. I have this disabled because it annoys me sometimes but it can be extremely helpful. The black puck, will change the colour you are using if you click hold and drag, up, down, left or right. If you click and release just once a colour wheel will
