7 Days Drawing Challenge (preview)First of all thank you very much for all of those who are willing to take part in this challenge! We'll start this Wednesday (18th June). Be sure you won't miss it!7 Days Drawing Challenge (preview)1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What's a 7 Days Drawing Challenge?
The challenge is drawing 7 different things based on 7 themes I will give you guys. A drawing a day. I know it may sound a bit tiring but the objective is to keep yourself inspired during 7 days in a row. The more you draw, the more you'll feel like drawing!
What about the Rules?
The only rule is that you have to draw (and submit) something each day! It doesn't matter the media nor the art style. That means it can be traditional or digital. The style may be realistic, manga/anime, cartoon, etc. It may be a Black&White artwork but it has to be a final piece. Oh! Don't forget to mention me with "Picolo-kun" so it will pop up into my messages and I'll be able to see the artwork!
I'm not one of these wealthy guys on dA so I'll tr

care for a KattWould you like to have a Vattukatt shipped to you in a box?care for a Katt9 months ago in Personal More Like This
For a ridiculously huge amount of gold this is now possible.
The Katt will be carefully packed and safely delivered to your doorstep. The box can be used to create a house for it to sleep in.
The Katt is a shy, sensitive creature that comes out at night to hunt.
It originates from the deep, dark forests up north where it lived in secret far away from humanity, and is the only now existing individual of this rare breed.
It's generally friendly unless it feels threatened and often goes well together with other animals. But it is important to always approach the Katt with caution, as it's easily startled and prone to flee.
The Katt has many special needs. Only an experienced owner will be able to care for it properly.
To earn its trust and keep its level of happiness high a few things are needed, such as

Color Inspiration - RedHello again!Color Inspiration - Red6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This is the first of a 7 part journal about colors. I'll take the opportunity of the 7 Days Color Challenge to share some material I've been gathering recently.
Hope you find this interesting for either the challenge or future projects. ^_^
Red has more personal associations than any other color. Recognized as a stimulant, red is inherently exciting. Red draws attention, so a keen use of red as an accent can immediately focus attention on a particular element. (shout out to extroverted people, that's your color (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*)
Red is particularly interesting because it's on both ends of the emotional spectrum. On one end there's passion and love and on the other there's danger, fear and anger. I'm wondering which of these emotions you most associate with the color red. ^^
It's the first color bab

SnK Character QuizThis has been circulating around tumblr for a few days, but I'd like to draw your attention to the Shingeki no Kyojin Character Quiz on April's issue of Pash! ...A Japanese magazine on anime. Go nuts with it, have fun, and see what you get. I got Erwin Smith, which I was surprised to discover at first, but then I realized that it was actually quite fitting. (Excellent charisma. Hehehehehe... You can all call me Commander Cherrypai now. 8D )SnK Character Quiz2 years ago in Personal More Like This
However, I find that most interesting part of this quiz are the character descriptions. They are very concise yet on point, and I can see them being extremely helpful for serious fic-writers with regards to keeping characters...well, in character. That being said, I was really, REALLY happy when I read Jean's description in the quiz results. Here's why.

How to draw during 365 daysHow to draw during 365 days11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?
March Update and Feature~Critique FolderMarch Update and Feature~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Critique Folder journal will go live shortly after this one. Anyone that submits their work to that journal will have their work displayed in the Critique Journal for some time so that group members can offer input. So keep an eye out for that!
I'm a bit too busy with my degree and business to do be the only one doing submitted critiques so that system is changing. If you need a critique, please submit your query to the group via that folder like usual and a journal will be updated weekly so that group members can help with critiquing. Hoping this new system allows for more varied input. (:

As some of you know, or have heard from me--my father has cancer. ( Mesothelioma, lung cancer )
And he is schedualed for surgery at 11am Monday morning to remove his left lung and the pleura around his heart.
This is a pretty serious surgery and he will be on a ventilator possibly from 7 to 14 days depending on his condition.
( but lets hope he heals much faster then that! )
So, I'm here asking--whatever your religion is, please pray for him and my family or at least keep us in your thoughts!
The power of positive thinking goes a long way! I wont be around for however long this takes,
but I will try to keep this journal updated in case anyone is interested in his condition!

Calbuco Volcano Erupts
The Calbuco Volcano in Chile erupted for the first time in 42 years. Around 4,000 people were evacuated from a 12-mile area around the volcano, and so far no casualties have been reported. This amazing time-lapse captures the force of nature as this fiery mountain — considered the third most dangerous in Chile, a country with over 90 active volcanoes — rains fire and ash on the world below.
So the Joke Chapter of Lady Luck...So as most of you are aware, for April Fool's Day I posted a fake version of chapter ten. This chapter was purposely written to cover as many creepypasta reader insert pet peeves as possible in a single chapter. I also made sure to feature a lot of errors. To my joy, many fans expressed disbelief and then relief that this was just a prank. You see, while this was largely a prank, it's also a bit educational because it's basically how NOT to write a creepypasta reader insert.So the Joke Chapter of Lady Luck...8 months ago in Personal More Like This
So now that April Fool's Day is over, I'm going to list off every single thing I did wrong in there! (Note: not all of these are technical errors, but are cliches which are overdone, widely off-putting and/or tend to have poor execution.)
Sudden appearance of another character. This is more a personal pet peeve than anything, but suddenly featuring another character with no logical reason other than "drama" is a big no-no. Seriously, it's a really fast way to turn off readers. Moreover, I introduced Jeff in
