Legal Pinch on the CheekThe things I learned this week
you can not have "inspired by LOTRS" in an item you are selling on Etsy title, even if it is NOT a direct copy of anything in the movies, or Warner Brothers will send you a little legal letter. Can't have LOTRS in keywords either. Or hobbit. no idea on elf. Guess I'm just that good, huh?
Help with Resin! Color tint and type, please help!So I'm sure the whole internet by now has seen this, but this guy wonderful glowy shelve has inspired me to do something similar for a picture frame for a Hellboy poster I have. Now, I am a fairly experienced woodworking, I work in a furniture shop, so building the frame doesn't intimidate me at all. But I know NOTHING about the filler resin. I have some really knotty gnarly cedar wood I'd love to use, and have the cracks and knot hole all filled in with red resin. The resin part is what intimidating me, as there seems to be a lot of types and pigment options to choose from, and it looks like I could spend a lot of money and royally screw up. I know what I need, I need it to sand to a fine grit well. I'd like to have it a nice deep crystal like red (glow in the dark is nice, but I'm happy with just UV reactive if that is all I can get) I'm going to use an oil finish, so and to highlight the wood grain. So, anyone w
Dragon Con bust.SO, and update... :iconInkibus: and I are NOT going to Dragon Con this year. Due to an unfortunate turn of events which had both our main plans of travel and our backup plans imploding, and being hit financial, we just couldn't put a plan together in time that had us not mooching off friends, feeling safe, or a way back if things got bad for some reason..... Not even mentioning trying to transport costume or food or anything. To say were bummed out would be the understatement of the year. A it is, we're going to try again next year, and hopefully things will be more secure. SO if we're kinda scares for the next two seek, we're just avoiding the internet.

Dragons in different universes abide by different rules; some are friendly, some are clever, some are pure evil, and some are trainable.

The Procrastinator A Day In The Life
Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute" before a deadline.

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!
'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

Can advertising be art?
Don Draper seems to think so. If you’re familiar with TV’s “Mad Men” — the second half of its final season begins airing in April — you know that one of the central conceits of the show’s plot is sparked when Don, the protagonist, has his artistic integrity challenged or questioned by uninitiated, small-minded clients. With a little foresight you can ask t
So you want to do commissions?A basic guide to setting up commissions
When it comes to commissioning, there is so much that needs to be decided, arranged and thought of that it can all appear a bit daunting at first.
However: when following a couple of basic guidelines, setting up commissions really is not as hard as you think!
If you find the article informative, please it.
First things first
So you have decided you want to start doing commissions. That's great!
The first thing to do is to determine what you want to offer.
Do you want to offer drawings, or designs?
Will you be coding journal-skins for people, or will you be pixeling?
Take a look through your gallery and try to determine what you do best and what you like to do the most.
Because that will most likely be what you'll be offering.
Stick to what you're good at.
Don't promise what you can't deliver when someone is paying you for it.
Now that you've mo
PE: Decorating Your ProfileCommunity Week
Your profile page is the first thing people will see when they click on your name, so it's very important to leave a good impression! This article will provide some useful tips and tricks for both premium and non-premium members who want to convert their profile into their own, unique page. First off, some Do's and Don'ts of profile decoration:
Use dA's profile widgets-- there are lots of great options to chose from
Show off some art (that's what people are here for!)
Express your personality through colors, stamps, gifs, etc.
Add so many images that your profile takes forever to load
Use garish or headache-inducing colors
Make text difficult to read with dark backgrounds
While many widgets are restricted or locked for non-premium members, there are still a variety of great widgets that you can add to your profile, even without a membership.
