Here's how to use it: After you've sharpened your pencil as much as you can in the "twister" sharpener, you take the pencil and lay the pointed tip on its side on the sandpaper pad. Using slow, gentle strokes, you then sharpen the lead's point even further than the hand-held sharpener can. You can get a sandpaper pad at any good art or drafting supply store, or you can simply use a sheet of fine sandpaper (but not too fine!) from the local hardware store. The sandpaper pad is more convenient to use as its sheets are already cut down into a portable shape, but the stuff from the hardware store might be cheaper if money's a problem. You'll just have to cut the hardware sandpaper down into small sheets yourself, though.
    Hope this helps!
    Thanks for the tip. I'm sure we've got some sandpaper around here and I'll give it a try. I have been pretty lucky today as the tips haven't been giving me any trouble (knocks on wood) and hope I can keep it up... But i will still try what you suggested.
    You're welcome! Glad to help!

    Adrenna Lynn/Rush

    So I picked up a copy of "Death Proof" on DVD, and it got me inspired and combined with a post-series fic idea I had wherein Adrenna Lynn returns after a long absence from Kim & Ron's lives...but I figured in the last couple of years, she's become a little bit harder, a little bit meaner, and a little bit more cold blooded in her craziness...

    ...oh, and she doesn't fake the stuntwork anymore.

    So taking all this into account, I came up with this...



    And then tweaked it a little further into this...



    Whatcha think?

    Nice!

    I've only seen commercial clips for "DeathProof," but it looks like the kind of movie that Tarantino just had a lot of fun with.

    The "promo" poster looks the best of the two; the glowing outline softens the line mistakes we all make.

    I'll be sure to check this one out. I like the title - short, snappy, direct, tantalizing. I prefer to do the same thing, demonstrated in the titles of "Drive" and "The After."

    Cloud, that last drawing of yours was just great! You've really captured the KP "style!" Kim and Ron look like they do in the series - really great likenesses there! You're improving with practice, and it shows in every sketch you do! Keep up the good work, my friend!

    Thanks... I know I put lot of OT into getting these done as soon as possible... I am going to take a break though. I think I got a little burnt out and I've got alot of other things going on so it is for the best. When things settle back down I go right back to it.

    The following is a scene from the first chapter of "The Hyde Factor."

    So, for those who don't know, I work at Walt Disney World. And every year, they hold the Cast Create-A-Pin contest. Cast members from all over Disney World can submit their ideas for pin designs. The Pin Trading team pick five winners and those winners see their artwork turned into limited edition (and I do mean limited: only 500 of each winning design) cast member exclusive pins.

    My entry for last year, "Villainous Vacation" can be found here:

    http://shallow15.deviantart.com/art/...ation-48967906

    But it didn't win (And no, it had nothing to do with the quality of the picture, since all the winning entries get redrawn by the professional artists at Disney Design Group before they're turned into pins)

    After seeing the sheer shmaltz factor involved in the winning pins from that year (All of them were a basic variant on "Cast Members Make the Magic"), I decided to try again with that particular theme in mind, and, once again, I did not win. So, I present to you my 2008 Cast Create-A-Pin Contest Entry...

    Hi gang.

    This is good that we have a forum where we can showcase our completed and ongoing fiction and artworks. It gives us all a chance to sample the genius of the group beyond just forum posts and without having to open a separate site.

    As my 2 cents, I want to try something - a "trailer poster" I guess, of an upcoming fanfic I'm working on. Let's see if I get this right...
