A German Christmas treatNo new art, but a recipie for a very traditional, cheap and delicious German Christmas dessert. (Germans: Sorry, nothing new for you...). Maybe your country has an own variety of it, but this is how it's made here:A German Christmas treat1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Bratäpfel (Roast Apples)
-Large, tart apples
Pre-heat the oven to 220°C.
Cut the butter into little dice. Mix cinnamon and sugar.
Cut a lid off the apples and carve out the core, but leave the bottom intact so the stuffing won't fall out.
Starting with the cinnamon-sugar, fill the apples with butter dice, almond slivers and raisins. Add plenty of cinnamon-sugar frequently.
Put the lids back on the apples, set them in a shallow glass pan, put in oven. Witness the most delicious of all smells fill your home. After 20 - 30 minutes, the skin should split and turn slightly brown. That's the sign to take them out.
Serve hot with vanilla sauce.
Guten Appetit und fröhliche Weihnachten!

The reason I chose this song is because we are all unique. We can only be ourselves, and I know that most artist have problems with that, so I can't help but think that this will cheer up AT LEAST ONE PERSON. I'm a very optimistic person and I like to spread it around.
Here would be the general rules:
1)You only get to choose two lyric lines here http://thesketcher06.deviantart.com/journal/#/d587fjb
2) The drawing doesn't have to be literary what's in the lyrics! Use creativity(but you can illustrate what the song says if you want!)
~My dA Story~My deviantart Story~My dA Story~7 months ago in Personal More Like This
It’s odd as I thought the site was older than me o.o Happy 14th dA!
I would be on dA for three years on Dec, 23, 2014. I’m still pretty new here but dA has helped me become an improving artist and a better/ stronger individual. It all started when I was 13 I came across dA. At this time I have never joined, only browsed other people’s work ( particularly Sonic artists). It was very inspiring to see so many different Sonic artists online as I never met another Sonic artist in real life before. So I never really had anyone to really relate to on that. The reason I waited almost five years was really because I thought I wasn’t good enough to be here and I didn’t have a scanner really xD; I was always teased for the way I wrote and how I wasn’t even able to color so well in my younger years but for some reason I kept drawing anyways for the fun and stress relief of it as it kept me distracte

There was once a time when art depicting the lands west of the Appalachian Mountains as pristine wilderness awaiting exploration was censured by church and state as distracting from more important matters of the common pieties of home life. But there have always been those who need visions of grander realms for the journeys they can only dream of experiencing, but that may one day be rest stops on their great–great–grandchildren’s celestial road maps.

SPIKE updatesJust thought I'd share with you guys some updates on the progress of finishing my "SPIKE" novel.SPIKE updates2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of people have asked me how it's going, when it will be published and stuff. I really appreciate getting asked these things because it shows that people are actually interested in my writings, and that it just such a great feeling
I've got two news for you guys today though: one bad news and one good news. Let's start with the bad news.
I haven't finished writing SPIKE yet.
And I honestly don't know when it will be finished - which oddly enough brings us to the good news:
I've made a new, major decision in the SPIKE story that I think a lot of you will be happy to hear. As usual I don't want to spoil too much, but there is a part in the story where Spike and Sam are separated from each other for quite a long while. At first I was planning on only writing from Spike's point of view, like, what he's experiencing during this separation period. I figured that since he's the main cha
What The Crap Is Even Furry?I think sometimes it gets confusing when we're discussing "furry" because the word covers several different definitions and literally nobody wants to be left out of including their Doom cyberdemon fancharacter and who are you to judge, anyhow?What The Crap Is Even Furry?11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Being an english major with an interest in linguistics, I find this is simultaneously a boon--as the lack of solid definitions for any of these prevents people from being shoved out the door for failing to meet that definition . . . but at the same time, it causes an enormous amount of confusion when we're talking past each other saying two (or fourteen) entirely different things with the same word.
Furry as it is used commonly means:
1 - The furry fandom in general. What this necessarily encompasses is hard to pin down; to some people you have to actually accept yourself as part of the fandom, but it's also possible to be a big fat geek about it and clearly be in denial of whether or not you are
Merchants Mission 7Greetings, Merchants.Merchants Mission 72 years ago in Personal More Like This
A letter from me must be rather unexpected, eh wot? Perhaps even unwelcome, given the circumstances. Do not worry, I will certainly address that, but first, I wish to speak briefly of the rather jarring disappearances we just suffered.
I understand that many of you watched your loved ones vanish into thin air. I was in the presence of our own Master Foo at the time. Unfortunately, he is caught up in whatever is happening, and none of us are entirely certain why, or how this occurred. I, as I am sure the other remaining leaders of the Rogues and Rescuers will, am going to do my best to investigate this and find where they all may have gone, but we have woefully little to go on.
In light of reports that Miss PK and young Rhodes have... have been caught in this wave of disappearance, the Merchants are officially left with Malt and Sandy at the remaining head of leadership. They are both understandably shaken by this, so I am stepping forth in Miss PK's absence. Until
PE: Anthro Art TutorialsOn today's Project Educate Article on Anthro, I'll be highlighting some great tutorials on how to draw Anthro. Sense there is no right or wrong as far as drawing Anthro, because lets face it, we don't see a werewolf running around to reference from, your imagination is the limit. However, there are some simply guidelines that you can take home with you and practice to better your creativity.PE: Anthro Art Tutorials3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is probably one of the most challenging things for people to adhere to. Anatomy in itself is a little challenging but once you get it, the sky's the limit as far as drawing Anthropomorphic animals, beings and things!
So below are a few pointers!
1. The Ultimate Anthro Tutorial - This tutorial was created for all beginners and Art enthusiasts around the world. It has such detail and walks you through all the basics before getting to the next level where you feel comfortable drawing anatomy for an Anthro character.
Mum's Health: Update 27.07.2013A lot has happened in the month since Mum's diagnosis of skin cancer.Mum's Health: Update 27.07.20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
She has so far had a CT scan to check and see if the cancer has spread to any internal organs, we're staying positive that it hasn't, but we won't know til the results.
She also had her operation on the 17th to take an inch either side of the original area of cancer, plus an extra 3cm's of skin and muscle tissue which was taken for further tests and biopsies. A skin graft from the back of her arm was pulled over the gaping wound that was left open. She gets her stitches out on Monday (29th). This has resulted in mum having zero use in her left arm without causing considerable pain. But she is staying strong regardless.
I want to thank you all for the on-going support through this unthinkably tough period in time. It's something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemies, to feel utterly helpless is just unimaginable. But mum is staying strong and myself and the entire family are pulling together as best we can.

Group Icon Contest!The time is finally here. It's time for an icon contest!Group Icon Contest!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This group is in desperate need of a new icon. The icon it has is very old and I think it holds back the group from it's full potential (Considering how ugly it is. xD)
The contest will be over June 30th.
-It may be animated or not animated.
-Do not put your own character or a design in the icon owned by you or someone else that can be potentially stolen.
-Nothing that could trigger a seizure please, my goodness.
-Make the icon relevant to the group. Don't make it say 'HAMBURGERS!'. I mean, seriously. Come on. That has nothing to do with the group itself.
-Please be original. Everything in the icon has to be drawn and created by you, or else some of the prizes will have to be split.
-You may collab the icon but as I said, the prizes will be split!
-Limit is 2 entries per person.
-Group icons have to be 100x50.
There will be 3 winners. They will all be featured on the home page of this group until the time comes for

Welcome here and let me introduce you, Flipfloppery, who is a really talented artist with an amazing and interesting comic called, Awaken.
♣ Let's start simple. Please, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hey! I'm Koti Saavedra, aka Flipfloppery on the internet, I'm 27 and I'm from Chile.

❖What are Baxtgens and where do they live?
Baxs are a combination of bats, dragons, and foxes/wolves. They're normally very docile and shy creatures, however, certain individuals can be more outgoing than others. The mostly reside in very tropical and wet climates, because they enjoy keeping the very delicate skin on their wings moist to prevent cracking. There are desert and snow Baxtgens that exist, but very few have been recorded. They are carnivores and prey mostly on small prey, like birds, rodents, and fish. Baxtgens normally travel in twos or threes,

These little guys are examples of our barbary whelp.

The immature version of a barbary drake (adults coming soon), they're so named for their barbarous nature (mind your fingers). Barbaries are voracious eaters, and when full grown quite capable of tackling prey larger than itself (mind you there isn't too much larger than a full grown barbary). Hatchlings display a wide variety of colour patterns, often in outrageous combinations. These bright, distinctive pelts are thought to advertise the immature drake's venomous nature to any would-be predators. Although somewhat unpredictable in captivity, whelps imprinted at hatching can be domesticated with some measure of success.

Best video resources for digital artistsLearning the theory without any practice is incredibly pointless when it comes to art. No book, no lecture and no video will ever teach you how to paint if you won't find the time for creating something yourself.Best video resources for digital artists1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
On the other hand, doing everything alone and without any instructions is the longest and hardest way of achieving anything. What's worse it doesn't guarantee you success.
Through the last couple of years I've been painting, I've learned that the best way for me to learn to paint is to copy techniques of people who know what they're doing. There's no better way doing it than watching videos with commentaries. That's why today I thought I'd share with you some great lectures, tutorials and demos I've found on youtube. Below you'll find a list of the best YT channels and samples of videos. Go and subscribe for more great vids!

Dear beginner Artist[Another Journal? Sorry...]Dear beginner Artist1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I came to share my drawing tips :iconarmsplz: I have never taken Art Classes, and I have dropped out of highschool many times, so getting a career is out of my reach. But! I know how frustrating it can be not to know where to start... and I also hate to see more experienced artists refusing to help, just sit there and eat Watchers while sitting on their Premium Profiles ((I have done that many times, it's kind of funny actually )) . I want to do something for those who think they need a little help.
I am not looking for friendships, neither Ice Cream. I am actually doing this because I have heard of Young Artists recoloring someone else's drawing, with the excuse of "I don't know how to draw". And those who makes laugh of recolors, should know that making fun of it is lower than stealing. Don't hold back beginner artists, ok?
