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
Beta Key Giveaway 2

Beta is a test. There will be constant revisions, things breaking and being fixed and occasional downtime. You're going to be playing a game that's a work-in-progress, and should not be consider
You don't know it, but your pet is actually a...One day, Phillip Buster had an idea. Not many people lived on the Earth yet, and his tribe relied on hunting and gathering to survive. Wolves were good at hunting, he mused. Wouldn't it be interesting to have them work for him?
He managed to get some wolves into possession and carefully put them together to have cubs. Neither Jeans nor genes were known at his time, but Phillip did know that children looked different from their parents and also exhibited different personalities. Maybe the wolves would eventually have an offspring that his tribe could use.
Genes are the blueprints of a being, how it is shaped, how it grows and in many ways even how it behaves. But these blueprints don't copy perfectly. There are small alterations, changes, and so a new animal would always be slightly different from the animals that came before. Perhaps it would have the tendency to be more playful, or it may be better at sniffing, or it may be friendlier towards other beings, such as Phillip himself.

I Was Not Ready For This
What did I just sign myself up for?
I had never made, drawn, written, or created a book in my life, so this was all pretty foreign to me. I had told Heavy Metal publishing I'd do it on my own dime. Reason was, this was my project.
Not that I can't cooperate or collaborate, but this time I wanted to create what I saw in my head, and not have a voice behind me telling me what to do and what not to do. Kevin Eastman, head of HM Pub, was incredibly generous in this decision and told me to lead the way, and I tried my damnest.
So I started with the obvious fundamentals. What is the story of LMS?
Now, as a whole, LMS's simple logline is incredibly simple. A man who gets framed for a crime he didn't commit, breaks out of prison and goes after those
Few words about art-thieves.Hi!
My dear watchers, I really appreciate your support when it comes to fight against art-thieves.
But I bet there are also many people whose thoughs can be interpretted like "why is she so hysterical about it?". Some people say, that the fact, that some photo is worth stealing, is a kind of compliment.
Ok, so let me present my point.
At first: why am I so unhappy about reposting of photos?
Because, pals, if somebody just reposts a photo without any change, it just gives totally open space to other people who would find the photos on his/her blog, taking it and posting it themselves. And because the first person did not credit the original author, they also do not credit the creator. The more people do that, the more times the photo is reposted. Always without credit. Sooner or later, it becomes a kind of "public" property and original author has almost no chance to effect this situation.
Do you know this photo? Honestly, EVERYBODY knows it. But do you know original author? Do you
Art theft is not a crime - say NO to copyrightToday, a DD was awarded to a nice acrylic painting (below left) which was painted from my photo (below right) -
Just about the only thing I don't like about is the strong cyan tint, which seems to be more associated with the photo of the painting rather than then painting itself. Overall it's definitely one of the best derivative works I've yet to see based on my photos. I really enjoyed exploring how all the little details differed between the two.
Rpriet1 did not ask for my permission, or inform me of using my photo. A DA gallery moderator just messaged to ask whether I would like the deviation removed, and the DD revoked. I think most artists who've had their work "stolen" would be outraged, but for me the answer was a very unambiguous no. This is a complicated issue, and I think that the vast majority of the readers will disagree with me at this point, so let me explain my position carefully.
The concept of intellectual property, the way it ex
