Noah's Bookman"What if, instead of being sent to record the secret war with the Order, Lavi was sent to the Noah? Would Lavi stay neutral or lose himself to the Noah as he did to the Order?Noah's Bookman5 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is his record."
Originally it was planned to be a one-shot but I guess I got carried away. It parallels the original manga. The chapters were initially written out of order, so sometimes the flow is a little awkward (and the early writing really sucked). If it gets confusing, check out my FF.net story. It's been revised and properly ordered so it flows better.

How to feel good about your ArtWe've all had those moments as an artist where we just can't seem to like what we're doing, where nothing seems sufficient and everybody else seems to draw so much better than ourselves.There's a few simple things you can do to avoid feeling like that or that you can remind yourself of should you already be right in the middle of this mess.How to feel good about your Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Draw for yourself, not an audience!
The first and probably most important point, especially for any artist on here who in one way or the other seeks feedback and recognition from their fellow deviants. You should never forget that your art is after all YOUR art, so it should be a means to express yourself, relax yourself, be proud of yourself etc and not anyone else. Never let yourself be pressured to do anything you don't want simply because your watchers might demand it or do anything for the sole purpose of getting more attention. It might make you happy in the beginning but loosing track
@YukoRabbitJapanese artist YukoRabbit's beautiful artwork is both passionate and incredibly detailed. With strong lines, forced perspective, and captivating characters, it's hard not to look twice at each of her digital paintings. She's able to draw you into the intricate lives of her attractive adolescent muses with her intriguing concepts. With a strong sense of movement, her work seems to dance around the page entangling both the viewer and the subject.@YukoRabbit10 months ago in Art Features More Like This

I am too untalented to make prints / artbook / adopts / comic / etc.Actually, the best time to do something you're bad at is when you're bad at it! Everyone starts playing piano when they're young and suck shit, but by the time they are older, they can play beautifully! You don't want to be that 30 yr old who doesn't know how to but wants to play the piano because he was too scared to make gross music in the beginning. This is the BEST time to start making a comic (for example) because it will help you improve in that area that you will need to be better at! How can you be better at making comics in 5 years if you never tried to learn formatting, text, thumbnails, character development / whatever you need? You will be in the same place you are 5 years from now

Comics Are ArtComic-Con Journey to the Heart of The New Summer VacationComics Are Art2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Americans have a long summer vacation tradition of visiting the foreign capitals of the world and being sure to spend at least one day in each nation’s most iconic art museum. In Paris, we visit the Louvre. In Madrid, the Prado. In Rome, the Borghese. We feel far more comfortable in identifying the different peoples of our planet through examples of their greatest art works than we do about identifying ourselves as being represented by any one iconic “American” art museum or artist. Maybe the country is just too big for one musuem and so it has always fallen to our pop arts to carry the true visual narrative of what’s going on in the hearts and minds of the masses.

Okay, do you guys know what this means?
Here's the first paragraph of fifty shades of grey.
"I scowl with frustration at myself in the mirror. Damn my hair – it just won't behave, and damn Katherine Kavanagh for being ill and subjecting me to this ordeal. I should be studying for my final exams, which are next week, yet here I am trying to brush my hair into submission. I must not sleep with it wet. I must not sleep with it wet. Reciting this mantra several times, I attempt, once more, to bring it under control with the brush. I roll my eyes in exasperation and gaze at the pale, brown-haired girl with blue eyes too big for her face staring back at me, and give up. My only option is to restrain my wayward hair in a ponytail and hope that I look se

First, I did a lot of research for referrence photos and ways other Lavi cosplayers made their hammers. It really helps me to look at what other cosplayers use, so if I see something I like I can use it and if I see something I don't like I stay far far away from it
