Why we fall. - Edited with full postWhy we fall. - Edited with full post9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Art by Allison Smith.
"Why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up."
One of my favorite lines from Batman Begins. However, there are moments where it's rather difficult to get back up, and sometimes we require that one special kick in the ass.
From each tumble, we learn a valuable lesson. A year or so ago, I had hit a personal wall that was proving too difficult to force through. Art, which is usually front and center, took a back sea--and while we've all had art blocks--that wasn't the only issue.
It began with my roommate of two years, whom had decided it was time to move else where. With such a sudden interruption, I had to find a new home and in less than 30 days.
Having also been through a bleak breakup months prior, and finding myself with no pending freelance work and

What do I offer?
1.) Chibi commissions
2.) Cuties commissions
Hello! I have decided to finally open up commissions here! As of now, I offer only commission options for my chibi styles and my cuties. Why? Simply, these are the only styles I have time for. My larger drawings take days or weeks at a time due to my work and responsibilities to college. (Plus I really love drawing these two styles for fun!) Down below I will go over prices, examples and descriptions of each option.
Hello all! so my trial run of commissions went brilliantly! Basically, I was seeing if there was any interest in them at all. Now that it was successful, I have now set my official prices. These new prices are based on how long each drawing takes me plus it is now in USD or points for full colored chibis but it is your choice for what type of payment. ~enjoy!

Attack of the Titans - Fall ContestIiiiiiiiit's showtime! Open to everyone; and those without a Cavitto, don't worry, we've got you covered!Attack of the Titans - Fall Contest2 weeks ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Our theme is Attack of the Titans (which might be somewhat based on the Disney film 'Hercules') and our Titans are physical manifestations of the four elements Earth/Rocks, Water/Ice, Air/Wind and Fire/Lava. They are all set to attack to Olympus in hopes to overthrow Zeus - it is up to your Cavittos to react to this! Is your Cavitto on the exalted path and ready to fight to stop the Titans? Or is your Cavitto dishonored and eager to see Zeus fall? Let the mayhem begin!
We'd love to see Titans in your entries, but please be creative about them and don't copy the Disney ones
Only Cavitto horses may participate in this contest; no other breeds are permissable in any entries
All entries will be judged on effort against your own gallery
Using your Cavitto's power(s) is encouraged but not a re

The more one is denied something, the more one desires it.
The more oppressive the strictures circumscribing one’s life, the more delirious become that person’s dreams. The more prohibitions and sacrifices one accepts as a life’s duty, the more ingenious must become the approved “escapes.

In Bangkok, Thailand, students are being arrested for raising their hands in the air to flash Katniss’ three–finger “freedom” salute.
That’s right, the Katniss who’s the fictional heroine of the popular dystopian sci–fi “Hunger Games” movie series. The world has changed over the last few decades in a very big way, but some are apparently unaware of it or undisturbed by the stunning ramifications.

I don't care if you think this day is the same as the other days or even shittier than the other days but for me, this day has always been special, single or taken
If you're not exactly today taken, then don't whine you at least got awesome friends to be your Valentine! Not only today but everyday, love is equal among friends so saying "I love you" for your friend is actually rather sweet and good way to let them know how important they're for you and such~
But anyway, I shall not talk more about that
Everyone got different opinions and there was mine~

The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right .. ofcourse. *wink *wink )

The Procrastinator A Day In The Life
Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute" before a deadline.

There is a reason to speak about one wolf rather than a wolf population or at least a pack: Romeo was a famous wolf: an approachable and, at the same time, wild and free wolf.Romeo: The Lone Wolf of Juneau5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Who was Romeo
Romeo was a black wolf living in the Mendenhall Valley http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mendenhall_Valley, near Juneau (AK), known for his interactions with dogs and people. He was an Alexander Archipelago Wolf (Canis lupus ligoni) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Archipelago_Wolf who lived around Mendenhall Glacier http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mendenhall_Glacier between 2000 and 2009.
Romeo was a member of a pack of 13 culled by the Fish & Game Department. Only two wolves survived, Romeo and a female. There was the hope for a new pack in Mendenhall Valley, and the female was pregnant of four... unfortunately was hit and killed by a car. The female, named Juliet, was stuffed and mounted in the glacier's visi

All notes/comments have been sent out regarding your giftees.
I'm not sure if they send in note form or as replies to your original messages but you should have all received info about them. Please let me know if you haven't!
Due to an overwhelming number of people participating this year, the matching is taking a bit longer than expected. Please be patient, I will post a journal entry as soon as all of the giftee information is sent out.
I've thought about this and I'm changing the rules a bit due to shipping times being drastically longer around the holidays. Basically, you should plan to have it finished by the 25th, and if you're shipping within the US then you should ship it by the end of December. If you're shipping overseas, then you can ship by the end of January. That way it's after the rush and there's less of

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? It seems to be 9 years!
2. What does your username mean? Long time ago there was a tv-show Stargate GS1 and there also was a character named Apophis. Back then it sounded kind a cool
3. Describe yourself in three words. Lazy, hard-working ( at the same time? ), fair!
4. Are you left or right handed? Right.
5. What was your first deviation? Something that is deleted long ago I think, probably some sort of game screenshot over-coloring. I liked to make them look next-gen haha.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create? Digital semi-realistic illustration.
