Watchtower of the west. Llewellyn Encyclopedia tells us: The Great Western Quadrant of Water is the Watchtower that reflects images into our physical worlda region of strong creative life forces that gives rise to all living thingsbut not life itself. It is not the water we drink in the physical world. It is invisible. The Watchtower of Water is located on the astral plane and has astrological relationships with the planet Venus.

Love is like the wind, your life is spinning just like spring has sprun, yet voices lie there, and sing the saddest song. lies lies lies. are what they seem to be, and you soon find out, there will never be a you and me.
Love is like the rain, it splashes down onto the ground in a gracelful way, some might say. It sings the tune, the tune of love, yet gets in peoples way, and seems to missbehave. What does this mean? Will I ever see the rain again? Or will I just be outside, burning with the pain?
Love is like the ocean, it moves swiftly, and never backs down. It twists and turns, but never stops. And always seems to make the mark. But as it sings, it leaves its ways. And parts into one, while the other goes away.
Everything seems to fall, to the ground, soft and hard. Strangled up in my feelings, I'm so confused, so confused. I fall to the ground, on my knees. These Tears I cry, fail my Heart. Everytime I know to smile, its always fake, its always fake.
I can't choose now, its coming too close. The winds have strengthend, and the stars are falling. The whispers seem to fill the night, the waters seem full of life. Hearts are broken, children are playing. This melody, is so un-willing.
Its far away, my laughter sings. I see your face, and you've grown some wings. Over and over again, lets play this Melody. Starting from depression, over to serenity. Over and over again, Scream your Love. This way to live, is such a waste. Stop the hate, Play the Laughter, Pause the Pain, I'm going Insane.
Getting started with Krita isn't too complicated: just start it up, select a brush preset and experiment away. A better understand of the interface will really improve your workflow though. I've added various tips that so-so artists (like me...) may find useful, but ultimately everyone will find his or her ideal workflow.

My Krita tutorial series: Big thanks to Claus for converting all these to a wiki format as well. Everybody is welcome to submit improvements, updates and translations to this wiki, so it may be more up-to-date. These tutorials were done with Krita 2.5.2 ~ 2.5.3. To my knowledge, Krita 2.6 should have a mostly similar interface.

Part 2 - Layers and Editing ( Wiki version ) - Layer management: alpha locking, layer mask and erase mode, filter brushes, masks and layers, local selections, clone layers, use recommendations - Image properties and editing: basics, selections, transformation tool and deform brush,
Part 3 - Brushes

For those of you who asked, and those of you who didn't know you wanted it, here's the Development Meme template.
The PSD file contains all of the years and text boxes ready for you to edit but you can also just use the preview image if you prefer. You can add and edit as much text as you want to, no problem. You can also add or remove years as necessary - simply cut and paste to suit your needs.
For reference, here's my complete Development Meme. It's long because I am old D:
Feel free to link to your completed memes in the comments. Share your artistic journey here!
For anyone wondering, this isn't really any different to the popular Improvement Meme you may have seen. My template is simply geared towards the journey you take throughout the years rather than focusing on how you improve.
NOTE: Uploaded to the .PSD category of the Resources & Stock Images gallery because apparently you cannot add .PSDs to the Meme category. Huh.
Sooooooooo... my little brother really wanted me to make this. After much pestering, I caved and made it. This is his surprise Christmas gift I almost wrote a pattern, but got super lazy and stopped taking notes.. sorry about that! I was too exhausted with these past couple weeks of exams >_<
And here is the pattern that I finally typed out instead of studying! Bad me.
Anyway, it takes me a lot of time to figure out patterns (it's all trial and error fun..) and I'm usually pretty lazy with writing out patterns. SO.. let's not crush my motivation I would greatly appreciate the credit if this pattern is used or referenced to. Thanks! Happy crocheting

used a pattern from the book amigurumi world. altered everything except for the colors and the mane
EDIT: i know this will come off as terribly rude but i am not giving out the patterns anymore due to a number of reasons 1) the people asking for them do not even say thank you once i send it 2) my lion has yet to be added to any of their favorites 3) people are using my altered pattern to sell this little guy at the same craft shows/conventions that i go to which is just weird :/
thank you for all of your comments and your appreciation of him though if it's any consolation, the unaltered pattern can be purchased from its original creator, ana paula rimoli who is the author of "amigurumi world". please support artists and crafters monetarily so they can continue to bring us amazing items
This is an update of an older deviation of mine. I wasn't sure how well this update would be received, so I decided to submit a new deviation. The color scheme is more european compared to the original I guess. There are still things wrong with it, but I like the overall atmosphere much better. And I think the lighting is much more consistent in this version. Thanks again for your critiques!
