SkyDoesMinecraft X Reader (Minecraft One Shot)No Ordinary CustomerSkyDoesMinecraft X Reader (Minecraft One Shot)9 months ago in Personal More Like This
You woke up and got ready for your job. You worked at a sushi restaurant. You ate breakfast and said goodbye to your roommate.
You soon arrived at your job. You put on your apron. The first table you went to had a guy, maybe 20 years old, awaiting service. When you got a closer look of his face, you noticed it was SkyDoesMinecraft! You fangirled on the inside, then you went over to his table.
“Hello, welcome to Hatsuhana Park. May I take your order?” You asked him.
“May I have the Philadelphia rolls and maybe your number” You blushed at his words and nodded. You quickly left to go get his order.
You placed his plate in front of him and started leaving. He grabbed your hand,
“Hey. Don’t you remember? I asked for your number” He told you, hope filled his voice. You blushed and wrote down your number and your name and handed him the paper.
You went home, still inner fangirling about what happe

 World of HetherevWelcome! Do you have an original character, and do you enjoy drawing them in new and unusual places, with the characters of others? Then Hetherev is the place for you! This world is a crazy mixture of people and creatures created by other artists. Hetherev provides a few places your character can arrive in (with pretty general descriptions you can build on). It also provides written challenges or tasks you can use to help you decide what your character does or who/what it interacts with. This is a pretty flexible group! The purpose of Hetherev is to have fun. World of Hetherev4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The idea is that your character can be leading their normal life, trip over an inter-dimensional hole and Hetherev is where they end up. With no idea how they got there, how they're going to get home, or why they suddenly can't remember where they came from. One thing is for certain, you can only get to Hetherev by accident, and there's no exit in sight! No one knows exactly where or at what point it's boundaries begin or end. It
Your Fate, My Destiny.. Inuyasha X Reader X Koga"Naraku! Stop hiding come out and fight!" InuYasha was furious. What he had done to you was unforgivable.Your Fate, My Destiny.. Inuyasha X Reader X Koga2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"So InuYasha you have found me." Naraku chuckled. His form soon changed back to normal. "Well I see your almost "mate" here was enjoying herself. With me trying to take her away from you." He smirked.
"This can't be good." InuYasha muttered. '______ try to keep in touch with the mind talk.'
'Ok I will try.'
Naraku spewed miasma and your cut must have got some of the miasma in it so you screamed and fell with one hand on your ankle. InuYasha knew if he didn't do something the miasma would enter your blood stream and it couldn't be stopped.
"Naraku here I come!" InuYasha was furiously screaming and said, "WIND SCAR!" The yellow light purged from his sword and out onto Naraku's hand cutting it off, leaving the rest of his body scattered as well. But his hand soon revealed where the Sacred Jewel is nested. You thought 'If only I could purify it he would die'.

WANT YOUR SHORT STORY INTO A COMIC FOR FREE!- lately I've been trying to come up with some short stories but they tend to become very long. so as a casual and slow pace project i want to draw out a deviants short story into a comic.WANT YOUR SHORT STORY INTO A COMIC FOR FREE!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
- again this is a side project so it will take as long as i see fit and i may even cancel it and decide to only do covers for stories and literature.
- the project will be completed on my own time and pace. details on how characters,setting, atmosphere wants to look should be listed, and also examples of your vision
- i want the story to be in a simple setting like a classroom not anything like star wars, robots, or ships.
- i am a fan of yaoi so i can do a story of that nature but no NSFW. also a fan of Furries but not so good on drawing the characters yet.
- you can pay me in points if you wish but its not mandatory.
- if the story is not to my liking or to long i may reconsidering drawing it out. also something that could fit into 20 pages ( i'm flexible )
if there's any other questions just

Interview with :iconM-Delcambre:M-Delcambre
A bit about your background. Before drawing Concept Art, have you ever studied any other form of art? Traditional Art? Fine Art? Illustration? Did you ever study at an Art School or University?
In fact I am a student I still have 2 years, I am currently in game art in new3dge (school video games on paris). But I accept freelance jobs online. short missions in general.
I'm a professional degree in visual communication before entering the higher education. I have study the traditional designs for 1 full year in prep school. (
although I draw since childhood)
What would you consider the fundamentals of Concept art as a whole?
The traditional drawing, understanding of building an image, the basics of perspective and anatomy but not only .. Knowing a maxim

Duncan solo en el bosque, lo había encontrado un hombre llamado" Kurama" y su hija pequeña "Luna " , .Kurama lo vio débil y hambriento que decidió llevarlo a su pueblo , Rosemary ., junto a su hija, .Kurama lo crió como si fuera su hijo , le tomo mucho afecto .
con respecto a su relación con Luna , se peleaban mucho , como perro y gato XD, ella no le agradaba ya que el era muy sucio, bruto e, inmaduro , etc . y a Duncan no le importaba , pero no le gustaba que ella lo mandara, .
un día Kurama los mando a cojer unos frutos un poco lejos del pueblo , para mejorar un poco la relación, en ese momento , Luna trato de confesarle lo que sentía por Duncan ( ya había pasado un tiempo , de tantas peleas , ella le termino gustando)
pero Duncan, de lo inmaduro que es, no entendió lo que ella trato de decir y se puso a jugar con un ratón que había encontrado,

What is realism?
Realistic art is art that captures so much detail, it looks almost real/photographic. Fantasy art can also be realism if it the level of shading/tones/ details create a photographic appearance. Realistic art is quite mind blowing. In realism, there are is no lineart. Usually, there is a giant range of tones and colors that breathe together. If it is monochrome, the tones are equally as varied, but greyscale instead.
Take a look at some breath taking pieces of art:

Christmas Wish List and Random Gift Art GiveawayUpdate: There's still time to leave a character ref if you want to try for gift art!Christmas Wish List and Random Gift Art Giveaway10 months ago in Personal More Like This
DA is so barren of Christmas Wish Lists this year D: I miss browsing them.
This journal is in two parts. The first part is my personal Christmas Wish List, which is dependent entirely on the generosity of passers by. Granting a wish does not instigate any kind of trade between us. My way of giving back will be through the random gift art giveaway that I'll be talking about in the second half of the journal.
Just a reminder, for my wish list I can give nothing in return. If you offer to send me something please understand that I will not be mailing anything back or drawing art for you. The gift art will be decided by personal preference and a random number generator. I will be doing the gift art giveaway regardless of whether or not any of my wishes are granted.

100 Design Theme ListFinished this up over my vacation, and now it's going live after much rearranging and editing of the official list.100 Design Theme List3 years ago in Personal More Like This
100 design themes.
Words consist of adjectives that describe both physical and personality traits, others are color combinations, and a few are simple open ended names/titles. For each of these, the challenge is to design a character, creature, race, costume design, or whatever else strikes your fancy. Work in order, pick and choose, the idea is to have fun and expand your creature design work.

Looking for new artistsI'm diving back into studies and plan to scope out some real deal artists to 'shadow' in order to become a better artist. So if you guys know of any super good ones, chuck 'em at me.Looking for new artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I do have some idea of what I'm looking for. I want to avoid people on DeviantART, same-style concept artists, or pretty much anyone working in the entertainment industry. Current artists are alright so long as they don't fall into these categories. ( I had a classmate who pointed out a bunch of good ones but I lost the list. DAMN!)
Ye olde timey artists are good. Right now I'm looking at William-Adolphe Bouguereau. Anything Romantic period or Hudson River School is super amazing. Also La Tour and Vermeer. And Rembrandt.
Buuuut those are all painters (plus some etching) and I'd love to be pointed in the direction of someone more recent whose focus is in drawing. Or whatever. Just whatever you've come across that looks good (think art museum caliber). Doesn't have to be realistic rendering with cla

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
