What's this for, then?

In period dramas, do you think it is important for actors who play well-known historical figures to resemble them in terms of appearance (or at least thanks to make-up)?

All My Merry CharactersI have put up a special page on my Tumblr, where I have collected all of my 86 (yup, 86 and counting!) OCs from the Elder Scrolls and Dragon Age universes, listing their names, races (for Elder Scrolls, as in Dragon Age the race is apparent if you look at the protag's last name), pronouns, a couple of very basic facts, and love interests.
I also have Anon back on, so if you aren't on Tumblr, you can still drop by in my Ask box and say hi! :D
A Group to ConsiderI have shared some of my thoughts on my characters and fan fiction in a neat little interview in group called Thedas in Love:

It caters to fan artists and writers who specialize on romantic and platonic relationships in the Dragon Age universe. They have collected a lot of interesting artwork, but the group is currently woefully understaffed (and the admin would rather not set submissions to getting accepted automatically because sometimes people post art that does not match the group's theme), so if you have matching interests and have enough time to help keep it afloat, I am sure the group would welcome your input!

Heads UpBumping this because the subject below has come up again.
I just wanted to sneak in an explanation that if I suddenly vanish off this site (or any other online platform you may find me at, like ESO), this will mean that I have been cut off from the Internet, or a certain portion of it, anyway. I know I said that before (I was afraid my parents would forbid me to use social media if I didn't get into post-grad school, which I ultimately did), but now my concern is due to external circumstances that are way, waaaaay beyond my control. As of now, I am trying my best to enjoy myself online while I still have a chance! :squee: And I am profoundly thankful to have met so many amazing people via the Internet! :D
While I still can, I would also like to copy the announcement I made on my Tumblr:
I know many of my American friends and followers are currently very upset over the election results. And the fact that I will continue
My blogsI am pretty new to this blogging thing, so they are probably gonna stay empty half the time... But here are the linkies just in case!

Why don't I always respond to comments?

I can't stress it enoughI have checked my inbox, and realized that some of the comments there are over two months old. This makes me tremendously guilty, and while I've made journals and polls about the matter, I was recently given to understand that some commenters are far from forgiving when an artist is lingering with a reply.
Please, please, please, I beg of you: understand this.
I read, and appreciate, and love every comment. The fact that I take a while to reply, or sometimes forget to reply, does not mean that I am arrogant or negligent. It means that I am too busy, or maybe too tired to find the right words.
Much as I enjoy contributing to this community, I also have some off-line obligations, such as studying (I only just recently got my Master's Degree in linguistics, and I might give a shot to post-grad education) and working as a translator and occasional English tutor to support my family. Our relationship is far from smooth, but we are all working to improve it. Plus, few as they are, I have a c

And why do I respond to comments in a certain way?

Dear people of the world!I have recently noted a somewhat exasperating trend in my replies to comments. They usually go along the lines of '.... and I hope you like the drawing/comic/story!'. I know this may seem nagging and annoying to some - but the reason I share the stuff I come up with on this website is to hear what other people think about it. I am always striving to improve my skills, and hearing feedback is important to me! Plus, I always gets stupidly excited when I come up with a concept or plotline, and I hope in my heart of hearts that it will resonate within the viewers' souls.
So, while I appreciate you staying in my gallery long enough to share the stories about how you levelled up your video game character, or how excited you are to be the first to comment, or which song you are listening to right now, or how to get to your favourite pancake restaurant (that actually happened), or what you think of your pubic hair (that also happened), eventually I AM going to be a kill-joy and ask this

Please check out these journals if you wanna support my amazing friends!

Important Note!My good friend :iconblueoakrogue: is opening commissions!

If you have funds to spare, be sure to check out her awesome work! Here are some of the lovely commissions and gift art :iconblueoakrogue: made for me before:

As you can see, her art is characterized by a thorough approach to detail, and a unique, recognizable style that is perfect for illustrating fantasy. As a client, I was never disappointed with my commissions, and I have always felt overwhelmingly flattered to receive gift art from such a wonderful artist!
The same, I believe,  can be said of others here on DA, too!
Here are the commissions :iconblueoakrogue: did for them:

If you are interested in receiving an artwork or ha
Blessed are the readers, champions of the artI am happy to announce that a good buddy of mine, :iconarlesienne:, has finally decided to share her lovely Dragon Age stories with the public on DeviantArt! I spent quite a good deal of time convincing her writing's quality merits it being distributed further than among the closest circle of friends, and it will be amazing if she gets the exposure she deserves!
Here's the first story she's posted! If you can spare a moment, be sure to drop by and give it a peek!
Wanna support a lovely artist?I really love the great, spectacularly detailed, and colourful Elder Scrolls fan art produced by :iconfrozenmudcrab:
Here are some of my favourite pieces in their gallery:

(Fun fact: Thanks to their wonderful artwork, I am now seriously considering shipping my Skyrim OC Many-Scars with Uthgerd the Unbroken!)
They haven't been so active on DA, lately, however (which made me rather sad), so the other day I've decided to drop by and see how things were going. And as it turns out, :iconfrozenmudcrab: has got commissions open!

If you have money to spare, here's another lovely artist to add to your list of potential commission artists to consider! :D
Sweet Commissions!Hello again y'all!
My awesome friend :iconmutantenfisch: has commissions open until May!

He has an amazing drawing style, and his prices are quite reasonable. Plus, he is open to shipping originals to you, which is extra-awesome!
I can't think of what I might have like commissioned for myself (yet?), thus so far I am giving a signal boost.
