How to design a Witherling...>> Designing Witherlings
I want the project to be open to contributions and I welcome your creativity, so please feel free to create your own concepts! Here are some limitations:
• All Witherling designs are "non-profit" not to be sold or traded for money or points.
• The Witherlings project is a creature design project not a character design project, which means that you are designing a model of a type of Witherling not an individual "Original Character" Witherling. Please talk to me if this does not make sense.
• You may not create or distribute "Adoptable" Witherling designs, either for free or payment. That is not the nature of this project.
• If you upload a Witherling design to your DeviantArt gallery (or elsewhere) please link back to my profile: http://coyotemange.deviantart.c
If you don't accept criticism, you won't improveThis statement is, to be blunt, incredibly stupid. I see it repeated around DevianART and, as bad as it is hearing it from the general public, I have to laugh uproarously when I see it coming from an artist. I usually try to be more diplomatic, but sometimes my inner Snape just can't be contained.
Here is the reality of the situation. A person who is building a set of skills can improve without feedback of any kind. Through trial and error, a human being can identify their own mistakes and, with honest work, rectify those mistakes. To say that this is not possible is so counter to reality as to be absurd. I could give thousands of examples but I'll just say this: if it were not for an individual's ability to invent skills from within themselves we would have absolutely no skills to pass on to other people.
Is this a good reason to reject any kind of negative criticism or criticism in general? Does this mean that criticism is useless? Absolutely not. This

Greetings. My name is Arthur. I know almost everything there is to know about this group. Ask me anything and I will have an answer... unlike my twin birdbrain.
HI! I’m Quinton. I uh... well, I don’t know a lot of things so I ask
About My FeonixesTo clarify now, these are my little critters (some of these examples are owned by other people)
In the past I've sold 'adoptables' of these guys. I created designs and color patterns ect and sold them. I've also done custom Feonixes where people have some freedom on what they want their design to look like.
I'm kinda tired of quietly defending my ideas. The whole feather thing went wild recently and I no longer feel like I can hold the idea too strongly anymore. The craze has even got me confused with thinking someone drew a Feonix and it was their own 'species.' I will still try to come up with unique ways to incorporate them onto my manxed critters in any case.
I am going to be doing what I'm doing so if there are people out there that want one of my critters, they can. But please be respectful of a few guidelines. Feonixes are not 'sparkledogs' or hav
Arc 1 SummaryHello again, everyone! It seems that Callahan can’t seem to leave well enough alone, and has bugged me to compile a list of the more important goings-ons that each of the three guilds here in Tao have been up to since the past year or so. I was hoping it wouldn’t be too much, but it looks like I was wrong... In fact, it looks like all the guilds here have managed to accomplish a great deal since the beginning, much to my dismay. You guys have no idea how cluttered Callahan’s office is, he doesn’t organize anything! He told me to do it myself if it bothered me so much, but he’s not getting free labor out of me. Well, additional free labor, I guess, as I’m not really... being paid to do this. Not with money, anyway; he says that the opportunity to “pore over and absorb such a rich and vibrant history following the creation of the three guilds should be more than enough payment”. He’s full of it, but I can’t complain.

Winter Alliance Contest! Greetings, fair Allies! It is my pleasure to announce the Winter Alliance Contest!
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I thought I would try to do something about that. And so the Alliance was born!
Because I, your founder, have a deep and abiding love for the seasons, this group will now host seasonal contests, and as the Autumn Contest is now over, it is time for Winter to reig
16,000 Points or 200.00 dollars (FANTASY CONTEST)Realm-of-Fantasy is helping promote this contest, though we are not hosting it.
This contest is being held by:
Full blog and details found here: http://dreamorchid78.deviantart.com/journal/Back-with-a-bang-and-CONTEST-303007033
Remember deadline is July 18th so almost one month away.
The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature. A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character. You can do either evil or good. Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone). Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game.
I Will Not Sell OutI will not draw pokemon just because I want to milk favorites.
I will not upload every fucking thing I do just because I want to milk pageviews.
I will not change my DeviantART name just to prove my worth to myself.
I will not leave DeviantART just to get watchers on another blog or site, and then come back claiming DA is forgiven.
If I ever leave, I will not do it because I'm ashamed of the DeviantART community, not including those who actually love art. I will do it because I want or need to leave.
I will not categorize my art into a separate category just to get on the front page.
I won't take trades just to make other people happy.
I will not open up commissions just so people can pay me way less than what my art is worth.
I will draw what I want, upload what I want, comment on what I want, and stay on DeviantART as long as I want. Because it is what I want to do, NOT what the community wants me to do.
HomesickI am the river's son,
my arteries flowing turquoise
and turning to rapids
rushing around my frame,
filling me with this sense
of buoyancy, minnows
tickling my sternum.
I am the river's son.
My palms caress each
silty shoreline, every
battered bank and bend,
and these places I know
so well become me
as my fingerprint,
even the bridge above me
inflamed by the afternoon
sun-glow, burning rusty and
the steel blue sky.
I am the river's son;
I bring my home along
like hermit crab,
where I step
I pull water from the earth.
Keep in Touch!
Lilyas has dedicated herself to making our community a brighter place with her vibrant artwork and infectious enthusiasm for interacting with others in our community. It has certainly paid off, as many deviants flock to her page on a daily basis to let her know how much of an inspiration she is. We absolutely agree, and couldn't let all that hard work go without recognition, so it's with great pride that we bestow the Deviousness Award for March 2014, to ... Read More
