Valentines coming up...
That was really nice! And I'm also a talking fox..Well it's still January, but I'm well into one comic at least and that's more than I could have hoped for this year. I hope I can be this productive all year *fingers crossed*. I just really wanted to thank you all for your comments and support for the Moff and Flickerlee comic so far. I always love reading your feedback, and the emotional investment in it is the drive I need to keep going with this comic and other stories I have planned. I hope I can juggle them all! A massive thank you too, to jcroxas for the DD! That was really kind! Thank you all Eeehehe, had to post these too... So cute!Also, while I'm here I just wanted to post this animation from mon amigo :iconbubblegumrobot:. It was so fun to see this unfold. All of us in the house provided voice acting, Mikey (Wolf) also did the sound and Luke (Ostrich) made it all move beautifully. Just wanted to share his hard work with you after watching the whole process happe
It's over when I say it's over.Hello! I'm back. You may have already come to that conclusion when I posted page 13 of Moff and Flame on friday and subsequently stabbed a majority of you in the feels and bathed in your tears and sobs of "NUUUUUUUUUUU!!" and "WHHY!!?" and (my favourite) "YOU F**K!".For that I hollowly apologise, because, like the nature of the comic, the pain was unavoidable, but there is still more to come. I'm still in the process of torturing myself, my characters and most of you. There were a few comments where people assumed this was the last page in the story and I just want to assure you it's not, don't worry, I'll let you know with a big THE END at the end of it. Sorry in advance, but thank you all for for your comments and your emotions and numerous icons of crying. They make this worthwhile. I had a lovely time in the Pyrenees last week! I've been so busy since I've been back though, but the good type of busy. Hopefully if all goes well I'll have another page to you by this evening.
Moth and the Flame page 9...Will be up on my twitter in a few hours You can follow me to be up to date StressedJenny https://twitter.com/StressedJennyGotta get busy. So many things to finish this weekend. All play and no work makes Jenny stressed... eventually. Not at the time. I love play. Grr for consequences!!

Illumination: The Art of BlendingHello everyone!At TheArtOfManipulation, we have a monthly learning challenge in which we focus on a technique, share information regarding that technique, and then challenge our members to use what they've learned to create a new work. We also interview various artist to get tips and tricks on the chosen technique.Although the challenge has ended, I'm hoping you'll find that the information and interviews we put together to be useful!~IvyThe Art of BlendingWhat exactly do we mean by "blending"? Well, the most basic answer to this question is that blending is when you combine two or more photos into a new work and tinker with various settings/techniques to create one cohesive, flowing image. As always, this is easier said than done.Take one stock photoused by two artists Beginner ScatteredAshe

Artists Toolbox: Culinary Art ToolsArtists Toolbox: Culinary Art ToolsTo find out more about this educational series, check out the Artists Toolbox Schedule over at projecteducate.The hardest part of any craft is getting the right tools. You've gotta learn the language of the trade, and that means getting yourself familiar with what's needed where. Culinary arts in particular can be so overwhelming. Most sugar craft books will tell you you need a long list of expensive equipment they'll use to make one type of adornment never to be used again. This can suck a lot of beginners in to spending a fortune on equipment that's not essential. And cake decorating equipment is exorbitantly expensive. I can go buy some lustre dust and a couple of cutters required for one type of flower and kiss $100 goodbye, so knowing when to spend and when not to spend can save you a lot of pain.I've been building up my

TentaclesDo you know what's awesome? Tentacles!They can be cute, they can be intimidating. They can be colourful, or muted. They can appear fierce and strong, or swirl in delicate, graceful lines.These muscular structures are best known as those attached jellyfish, but they're found in a massive array of invertebrates, some mammals & amphibians, and even in plants! We always associate them as having suckers, but some species come equipped with all sorts of interesting structures. Some tentacles have eyes at the end of them (snails) others have teeth (giant squid). Some can release venom (jellyfish) and others are lined with sharp swivelling hooks (colossal squid).But where they are best known is the one place they are most often misnamed: the octopus. The 8 limbs on the octopus are actually arms, not tentacles. Tentacles are actually much longer than arms, and only have suckers on the very tips rather than scaling the whole length of them. But tentacles jus
