Where to get feedbackSadly, this group isn't a good place to get critique on your art. We honestly don't have the time to explain our reasons for the amount of submissions we get. So instead of individually responding to everyone, we're putting together a list of places on dA where you can get feedback.Where to get feedback5 years ago in Personal More Like This

My Halloween WeddingHi everyone. How are you all? Feels like forever since i last spoke to you all as I have been inactive or semi active for a good month now planning my wedding. I know a lot of you wanted to see some photos so here you are, a little insight into the life of claremanson or should that be mrsclaremanson now?My Halloween Wedding2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are a few people here on DA i would really like to thank help make my day extra special.
Vampyratekitty for helping me choose my dress and jacket, as soon as you show3ed me that dress i just had to get it, it was great, though needed to be repaired by the mother-in-law a few times as it is a heavy dress and the straps were not too supportive. Even getting into the wedding car on the morning it tore a little again making me panic for a bit but it made it through the day.

In which I say something lengthy and Doctorish......to a guy who doesn't understand why finding a planet made of diamond is amazing.In which I say something lengthy and Doctorish...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it started out with me reading this article. The first comment I see is by some dude who basically says that this is uninteresting and unimportant because a giant planet made of diamond cannot benefit our species. I reply with this stinger:
"I don't mean to insult you, but I think it's the mark of an awfully small mind to think that a planet is only valuable or interesting if it's habitable by humans, especially if said planet has some kind of distinguishing factor such as, I don't know, perhaps being made of diamond."
Another guy posts soon thereafter, telling me that I'm absolutely right and that he approves of what I said. He then says something about how this is valuable beca
I think I have a crush on some people on hereWell, I have some friends on here who I think I have a crush on, but I'm not entirely sure. I'm not gonna say their names, because I don't want them to know about it. There's one girl I have a crush on who I became friends with. She's very cool, and very sweet, and she's a great poet. She always knows what to say, and she is a very good, very sweet, and a very cute friend.I think I have a crush on some people on here2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Another girl I have a crush on, she's also really sweet. We have one thing in common as far as I know: We both like a certain couple, and she has written tons of fanfics about said couple. She's a cool girl, nice to talk to, and she knows how to make me laugh.
There are more girls on here, but I just wanted to name those two.
I hope I didn't give away any hints about who I like. If I did, sorry.
If you want to ask me, ask away. I may, however, give you some hints.
HJSometimes, I wish I could be of actual material help to my friends/the people I want to help. I wish I could do things to help people instead of just saying things like "Something will happen in the future and it will be okay" or giving them ill-thought out advice about relationships that aren't friendship or romantic. I have no idea what I could physically do. Maybe give them money if they need it, financially (this is an issue with some people I know). Or physically hang out with them somewhere if they need to be in the presence of someone nice. I just wish I had the opportunity.HJ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes, I wish I weren't aromantic. I wish that because then it would give me the possibility of waking up in the morning, thinking, "What is the point of me doing anything today?" and then remembering that there's someone else in this universe who I can be with and enjoy and love and that this person is counting on me to love them, which is no problem because I love them right back. It's probably

Devious Journal EntryI'm writing this mainly to get the previous entry out of my front page. I've given myself plenty of time to think things through and now it's time to say "Fuck it!" and move on.Devious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not to say that things are going as well as I'd like them to. I'm still living/working away from my family and friends, I've finally met someone who appreciates me, who has made wonders to my confidence and has made the past weeks more bearable and pleasant (Thanks :iconAmdirBrethil:! ^^) but unfortunately she's far away as well; my only motivation right now to go to work is the miserable paycheck I get at the end of the month which isn't even enough to pay my rent, my hair is a messy afro disaster and I'm in terrible shape for the Summer
Updates have also been short lately because I simply haven't had time to dedicate to DeviantArt. I get home from work late and I have all the house chores waiting for me. During the weekends I just want to unwind, relax and avoid anything remotely work related. I have start

Less then 24 hours to go! Don't forget if we can reach 3,600 we can bring these deliciously cute cats to hairclip form so you can wear them wherever you go!
Lets see how far we can get! It's been an amazing journey thus far!
I recently launched a kickstarter campaign to make acrylic charms of my cute cat designs!
Check it out, like it, and share it/spread the word! Every little bit counts and goes a long way!
Click on any of the images above to go to the kickstarter page!
For those who aren't familiar with kickstarter, it's a site that allows me to produce a project through donations called "pledges". I've got a long way to go still so I figured I would post here in case people were interested in getting cute acrylic cat charms and the goodies that come along with 'pledging'!
I would be really grateful for your support, whethe

How to become popular on deviantART(The following "guide" is based on my own experience, but it's not meant to be taken seriously)How to become popular on deviantART3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Alright everyone! You wanna know how to become popular on deviantART? Then follow these easy steps and you'll reach popularity in no time!
Change your usernameMake a new account
Whoops, sorry. I thought deviantART had a username-change system, but it doesn't. Looks like you'll have to start over and make a new account! Transfer your faves and the people you watch, because you need a good username if you want to be taken seriously here, and making a new account is the only option for now.
Make sure not to choose the name of an anime character and a bunch of random numbers as your username (naruto12345), choose one that's easy to remember and defines your person. Because seriously, who chooses a random word and random numbers as their username?
Step 2: Start making art
The site is called deviantART

In Bangkok, Thailand, students are being arrested for raising their hands in the air to flash Katniss’ three–finger “freedom” salute.
That’s right, the Katniss who’s the fictional heroine of the popular dystopian sci–fi “Hunger Games” movie series. The world has changed over the last few decades in a very big way, but some are apparently unaware of it or undisturbed by the stunning ramifications.

-Quality of animation: not necessarily style, but does it look like some effort was put into it.
-The music (if applicable) Is the tune catchy? Well-executed? Etc.
-Is it unique? How so?
-If it's not unique, does it have historical significance? Was it one of the first to pioneer something that later openings copied? ie: Many of the WB cartoon opening of the 90s follow a formula set by "Tiny Toon Adventures"
