Core MembershipI don't feel myself comfortable asking for stuff but if someone has enough points to spare me at least an one month Core membership for me, I'd be forever grateful for you, since I need it.
Why, you ask ? I just want to change my username since it doesn't fit my current personality and life style, and I like "Cheshire Guy" better.
Not to mention that..."silly" typo which probably made a lot of people cringe in agony. Specially for a "Student Writer" like me.
So, if you're feeling generous or know someone who has a lot of points, mind sparing me a core membership ?
I'm sorry if I'm being inconvenient.
Hellow againHeeeeey, fellas. It's been a while, right ?
Not really, heh. Only two weeks and some days out. Why ?
My 5+ years Power Supply of my PC died a slow and eminent death. As of August 19th, it passed away. Rest in peace.
Due to the tight budget of my family, I could only repair it on last Saturday, September 9th, getting it back in my birthday. I've took the opportunity to not only replace the dead power supply but to add two things:
- One more 4GB memory stick, upgrading my memory to 8GB;
- One brand new 1TB HD from Seagate with Windows 7 Ultimate installed in it (because Windows 10 still have a load of issues), which I'll use for gaming, Gaia, deviantART and other entertainment purposes.
The 500GB HD that I have will stay with Linux Mint MATE installed in it.
Since I wiped clean the latter, I had to start my new desktop from scratch.
However, it took me two days to do so due to the loads of backups I have. I've re-installing mostly of my stuff that I needed to create a "gaming station" an
HellowOnce again I've neglected my dA page, heh.
Sorry by this, it's that Gaia Online has been "stealing" the time I had here, and since I'm not a "pro" artist or something else, I stayed there longer than I should, meeting some wonderful people there on my back from hiatus.
Not that's there's equally wonderful people I met here, mind you, it's that I've been also reuniting some "gold" (Gaia currency's) to keep up with the botched economy there. It's a social network nonetheless like Twitter, Facebook or even Instagram but with some more stuff added, if you know what I'm saying.
Anyway, I hope I can manage to post some scans of my exercises I did and I've been doing of the drawing tutorial I've been following.
Once again I'm sorry for my sudden inactivity. I'll do my best to swing between here and Gaia.
Have a nice week, folks, and take care.
I drew a thing...Here it is, a "BBW" version of my alien fan character Citrine (NSFW):
And the best of all:
- No tracing, no base usage and no other tools used.
- Using only a reference from a fellow BBW lover who you can compare with - Tae - by Shub-Yoggoth
- Using only the exercises from Monika's Stage One of "How to Learn to Draw" tutorials - How to Learn to Draw: Stage One, Manual Skills
The exercises used in the drawing were:
- Exercise 3 - Lines
- Exercise 5 - Hatching
- Exercise 6 - Fill Closed Areas
- Exercise 7 - Master Pressu
Busy daysPhew. This has been quite a week splitting myself between:
- Writing my drafts to my "The Legend of The Walking Warrior" book and find inspiration to write it;
- Gaia Online;
- Learning how to draw (I almost have no time for this one);
- And now "working" for bitcoins.
Hopefully I'll manage to organize this in the next days. And what about you, folks ? Have you're having or had having a busy week ?
Looking for Commission - Paypal or Points (Closed)EDIT: Thanks for all those who commented. I already found myself an artist: :iconalovelylynx:.
Have a nice end of week, everyone.
I'm looking for an artist who can draw my homossexual couple of OCs Peewon and Winston a.k.a. "Pee & Wi, Detectives for Hire", who are two characters from one of my upcoming stories. One is a short sized anthro fox and the other is a dragon kemonomimi (humanoid beings who have animal ears, tails and even horns) shapeshifter. Originally, they were meant to be a small homage to "Sam & Max: Freelance Police", becoming original characters with their own personalities later on.
I'm looking for:
- A cheap commission, which can be both in Paypal (USD) or even ;
- A Half or Full Body Commission;
- A picture of both of them together, with Winston (the kemono) hugging Peewon (the fox) like a plush toy, like in the examples below:
How to Make Critique Work For You
Don't Take It Personally: How to Make Critique Work for You - Full article by Monika Zagrobelna
Recently, I've been reading some articles, and between then, I found the one in the link above, which was among another equally inspiring article which encouraged me to learn to draw.
Yeah, I finally took courage and decided to do it, however, I'm still in that one stage of preparing myself emotionally to such "quest", since I'm one of those "emotionally scarred" people who have their feelings walking on a wheelchair after being "crippled" by the ones you were supposed to "trust". Not a pretty image to imagine, I suppose.
All in all, I believe some people's "prayers" have been answered. And no, don't expect me to pos
Thank you all for 20k views!I'd like to thank all those who gave my page such notoriety:
- My watchers;
- My friends here in dA;
- Those who follow my works;
- Those that ended on my dA page due to sheer curiosity;
- Those that ended on my dA page to know "who the fang" is this "courage-and-feith" guy;
- Those that ended on my dA page because of the unintentional typo at my dA username, which was meant to be "faith" (I still wish to change my username to be the same as my Twitter name but since I'm broke there's no way to do so);
- Those that ended on my dA page through the "Random Deviant" feature;
- Those that ended on my dA page through my Twitter account (@TheChesireGuy) and/or my other pages around the web;
- Those that ended on my dA page because of my random works at GIMP and/or stories;
- And everybody else.
Once again, thank you all, and as you may have noticed, my activity had a slight increase those days, so, who knows, I may/may not submit some of my work in the next months. Have a nice day.
UpdatesJust passing to tell about some stuff I've been doing:
The time that I passed in the hospital has made me realize that I should work more in my stories and fanfictions that I've been writing, you know. Since I also don't play MMORPGs anymore, it will be more easier to me to work on them. I've been even thinking of "reviving" my "dead" Fanfiction.Net account.After my PC went to maintenance, I finally got ahold of Windows 7 Pro SP1 which he installed in my PC (R.I.P. Windows XP SP3). Now I know why people don't want to "degrade" any time soon. Who knows, maybe I'll be around adding some more nice art in my favorites and gallery.
Anyway, have a nice end of week everyone.
'Plagiarism' and 'Tracing' casesHi everyone.
First of all, I need to say I NEVER trace photos or other people's works. That's too much.
Second: all the cases is not intended to pass for original work. It's strange to think that if you find something on the internet you can steal it, pass it as your own and nobody ever find original one.
I'm still learning, and sometimes when I like character, overall style, composition etc I want to know why I liked it. So maybe there is where the problem starts - I start to copy (or imitate) it to understand what's so good in it. In the end it's more like a redraw, or a 'tribute'.
My thoughts was that draw tributes means to express my love to the artist and to learn from him. Yes, mistake was in not giving a proper credit, and now I understand.
My biggest mistake was to don't have an ability to understand that it doesn't clear about originality of the pieces, about tributing, to think that is something obvious.
And I'm really sorry for that. I
A guide on how to make your first fursona!Alot of people have trouble making a fursona! So I decided I might as well help!
Although its called a 'fursona' you can have any sort of organism as your fursona! Ranging from a ant to a dragon, and even hybrids!
First thing you gotta do is pick a animal! I recommend picking a animal that matches your personality, here is just some examples:
bubbly, always happy - toy breed dog, panda or bird
shy and sweet - any animal that is a pet, and sloth
Nice unless threatened; very loyal - bear, bee, wolf, cat, and guard dog.
Jokester- fox, pug or ape/monkey.
Always angry - chimp, Tasmanian devil, cat and badger.
Feel free to pick ones that are not on the list!
Next thing is the most important; design! First pick out some colors, maybe your favorites or colors that represent you! Try to avoid a plain fursona, there might be a fursona that already looks like yours! Don't make it too flashy however!
If you put rainbow(s) on your fursona, only make a maximum of 3 parts rainbow, avoid using a all r
