Tutorial Video Feature! How to Draw Braids by Leharc--BlueHeart
Why Retro GirlyMistgod: Today there was some sad news. Debbie Reynolds, famous actress and mother of Carrie Fisher, died just a day after her daughter. I am old enough to remember very well, Debbie Reynolds!
Today I was writing a journal entry about how some people accuse me of being a pedophile, because I admire young women with retro girly fashion and braided pigtails and bows. I think that happens with younger people who don't remember what the movies were like from the 1950s and early 1960s and are not familiar with female fashion from those eras (especially in movies and TV). I grew up watching these old movies and TV shows, like westerns and classic movies. I loved the actresses and how they dressed so feminine. I loved the smarmy romance movies from back then, they were so sweet.
Melian, is a day dream character and a persona and was amalgamated from those things. It hurts me so bad when people think she is so base and crude. They don't understand. I grew up watching movies like
Artist Feature: Yelimshadow12Hello, today I would love to feature my newest buddy :iconYelimshadow12:! She is so generous and has a sweet, kind wonderful personality! We were instant friends when we met just a matter of days ago. She is a very spirited young lady with a lot of energy for creativity and art! Well, just take a look at what she has posted on DA so far, and her account is only 12 days old!!
I love the portraits she has done of me! I think she did a super-splendiferoulsy fantabulous super epic amazing job them! They are all just lovely! She really captured my personality and spirit! She captured the cheeks and eyes very well! When Mistgod looks at these, his mind goes "Melian!" which is really cool. It is a challenge for an artist to be able to do that with another person's OC, but she did a great job.
I have a watch on this artist's page, you will not be surprised, and I look forward to watching her develop her talent! So cool!

This group is a celebration of the beauty of art, hair styles and clothes fashion exhibiting ribbons, braids or bows. This would include hair braids (pigtails or pony tails too), or centuries old clothes fashions. Images can be of men or women, or even creatures and animals or pretty much anything with a braid or ribbon.
SUBMISSION GUIDLELINES AND RULES:
All art will initially be automatically accepted into the Submit Here folder. The group founder (that is I, MelianMarionette) will then move the deviation to an appropriate gallery folder. I will select what I believe to be the best for the Featured folder. If I feel a deviation does not meet the group theme or submission rules, I will simply remove it. Don't worry, there are lots of other groups and someone will accept your art with open arms.
1: Be Nice
2: Deviation submissions should clearly have braids (or pigtails, or pony tails), ribbons, bows, or centuries old fashion as a major feature or theme. This can include art of any type, hair styles, clothing.
3. Deviations not meeting the approval of the group founder and "art museum curator" (that is I, MelianMarionette) will be removed from the Submit Here folder without comment.
4. No nudity, sexually explicit, overly controversial, or distasteful art will be accepted. This is not a porn site. Mildly erotic art will be accepted. I, MelianMarionette, prude that I am, will determine what is more than mildly erotic.
5. The group founder retains the right to modify group rules at a whim. Whine and complain, it will do you no good. Mwah hah hah hah!
6. If you are frustrated with my brutal totalitarian rule of Ribbons-and-Braids, you are free to protest by leaving the group! Otherwise, stay, relax and just have fun!
