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.

Feature: Familiar BondingThe development team has been hard at work on creating and implementing new features, and we'd like to debut one of them today called Familiar Bonding!
This system allows you to visit your attached familiars each day to increase their familiarity (heh) with you, and earn daily rewards. We feel this system will be attractive to players who love collecting familiars, but would like a little bit more of a progression style of gameplay.
Familiars have several levels of attachment to your clan, however, we would like to keep those levels a bit of a surprise, so we won't be listing them here. Visiting a familiar each day will provide you with a small sum of treasure, and if your familiar reaches a new level, they will give you an extra special gift!
Each unique familiar type can be leveled once for your clan, and their progression will be saved (meaning, if you bonded with a Hedgehog for 30 days and leveled it up, removed it, and paired it with another dragon in your clan, its bonding
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.
Now I'm getting tired of adoptables since I'm selling a lot of designs I would have otherwise used in some fashion. But I'm also 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

About training to fullfill your goals and dreams.My experience of my small lonely, personal travel up to New York City was amazing decision, I've experienced a lot being as a part of the life of grand cities in the USA- which are quite much different worlds than most major cities in Europe. Not as a tourist but I transformed myself being as a New York citizen for several days, to feel in New Yorkish people how they live. As Brooklyn-er, I spent all days wandering along the buildings of that city, sitting down and watching people and the environment riding in the train and exploring between many boroughs and neighborhoods, from overwhelming, very touristic-y, overrated and famous Manhattan to the another side of the world, filled with a lot darker atmosphere- the Bronx.
I've been in New York so many times and since I was very little, yet I've never seen the real New York. But from when I became a traveler I learned how to find the heart of the city, and so, Manhattan wasn't the real part to see and feel the New Yor
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
Anatomy booksI'm frequently asked how I learned to draw and the answer is very simple - a large part of my knowledge is self taught from books. That's why I thought it would be a good idea to share some titles I owned or came across and used them through the years. Hopefully someone will find this list useful :3
Books that are awesome:
"Anatomy for the Artist" by Sarah Simblet
"The Artist's Guide to Animal Anatomy" by Bammes Gottfried
Books that are good:
" Drawing the Head and Hands" by Andrew Loomis
"Figure Drawing for all it's Worth" also by Andrew Loomis
Books that are ok but from the time perspective I do not recommend them:
"How to Draw Heads and Portraits" by Jose M. Parramon
"Human Figure" by Jose M. Parramon
Books that are pure unrefined shit and should be burned on sight:

United States is North KoreaSo this ex pro basketball player I've never heard of goes to North Korea to visit their dear leader as a publicity stunt orchestrated by some obscure media outlet. Apparently successful, because mainstream media is stupid enough to fall for it, since I saw it on TV over dinner. Anderson Cooper is all like outraged and shit. "How can you meet with a murderer?" Death camps, human rights abuses, etc.
Well, no doubt North Korea is a humongous shit hole, but guess what? It operates on the same basic principles as the United States. Anderson mentioned a few points, and the parallels are just too obvious to miss to anyone with half a brain. But alas, they didn't have any common decency to invite somebody to troll away their "we are the good guys" and "they are the bad guys" message. Obviously, the US is way better than North Korea, but we are talking about principle, and in that respect they are no different at all.
North Korea has concentration camps where enemies of the people are he

Therioshamanism: Domestic Tomato as Plant TotemWhen I was a kid I couldn't stand raw tomatoes. I thought they were too acidic and they bit my tongue. My family, on the other hand, loved them, and every summer when they put a garden in there would be ample numbers of tomato plants, mostly beefsteak and cherry. I didn't really understand the appeal until I was older; my tastebuds had changed, and I had had a chance to try fresh garden tomatoes again. They still weren't my favorite food ever, but I gained a certain appreciation for a "wolf peach" right off the vine.
In 2006 when I moved to Seattle for a year I planted a couple of lone tomato plants in our back yard, my first attempt at gardening. I had been told they were relatively easy to grow, and the young plants were cheap and readily available. The soil in our yard was hard and somewhat depleted from neglect and too much lawn, and the plants ended up being pretty stubby. But even with my inexperienced care they grew enough to produce a few ripe fruits. By the time I moved to Por
Just a note.Dear Fellow Artists,
There will always be people who are, on some levels, whether technical or aesthetic or sheer artistic talent, may be considered "better" than you are. Maybe they've had more time to practice. Maybe they have the money for expensive supplies. Or maybe they're one of those people who can seemingly just glance at their medium and make gold. Or maybe it's some combination thereof.
First of all, practice makes better, if not perfect. Over time you may be able to see your work getting better; your best bet is to compare yourself to yourself, not other artists. I can look back through my archives here and in various hard drives and see where I've improved over the years, and no doubt I'll continue getting better. While I consider myself a professional in some media, it doesn't mean that I don't have plenty of room for growth and improvement--I'd hate to think there was nothing more to do after any point other than death!

it is a town climbed up from the sea:
