Posting online is like dancing in a busy streetBefore you share anything online; be it art, photograph, or commentary, you should sit there and just envision this scenario:Posting online is like dancing in a busy street3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"EVERY PERSON ON THE INTERNET EVER IS GOING TO SEE THIS."
And really picture what people who don't know you, and don't care to know you, would say.
Then prepare yourself for it.
Because as terribly unlikely as that particular scenario is; your DA profile, journal, and gallery are still not your private little getaway of the internet for you and your buddies.
And you never know when something you did or said will be featured somewhere with a much bigger (and louder. and meaner.) audience than you're used to.
Developing Artists FAQHey everyone, just wanted to make a new journal about some stuff that's goin on in my head, and to those who care feel free to read.Developing Artists FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I've just graduated with a BA in the Arts (WOW SOOOOO HARDCORE) in late April. Aside from handling small freelance and commission stuff between my spare time, I also started working full time at a local mobile game studio as a concept artist and animator.
Now thinking back on my journey so far, I've met a lot of obstacles and obviously overcame many of them, and the ones I didn't overcome I keep on trying. For the longest time, while being in this online art community filled with countless talents of various degrees, I have sought knowledge amongst the community here, and in turn people have also came asking for knowledge in return. While I specialize in the entertainment industry as a visual production and sometimes pre-production artist, there have been many learning curves that I had to tackle by myself, because lets face it, if school wa

We give them everything. We give them their identities, attitude, genetics, hobbies, wardrobes, relationships, surroundings--the whole works. But what do they give us in return?
Most people may say their characters give them back a sense of accomplishment. Something to do. Entertainment.
While my little darlings give me that, they give me so much more.
They give me ALL SORTS OF PRETTY FEELINGS and disgusting feelings I guess. They make me cry and they make me smile. I particularly listen to the way people freak out over characters in television shows on here and on tumblr mostly on tumblr and while I am no stranger to those sort of feelings, I feel that way about my characters, too! What's that, I hear? Reflections on Doctor Who or Supernatural or the Avengers that go something like MY FEELINGS OH GOD MY LIFE IS RUINED NO PRECIOUS BABBUS OH GOD I WILL NEVER MOVE FROM THIS FETAL POSITION IN THE CORNER OF MY

Collection: MasksCollection: Masks3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Halloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi

Why people need to stop...... whining about female warrior and super heroine character designs.Why people need to stop...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Answer: In short, because they sound like whiny wannabe-feminist with major complexes and no knowledge of how art in a professional level works.
So a bit of background story, as some of you know, I was mostly oriented to fine arts, this has been changing progressively with time, and now, I'm more focused to character design and marketable illustrations. This has led me to a lot of research and self instruction via internet. But with the good, comes the bad. I wanted to write this entry for a while, because thanks to lack of experience I used to agree with criticizing the industry standards when it comes to representation of female characters, huge boobs, skinny frame, bikini armor stereotype.
And then, I stumbled upon the famous eschergirls tumblr account. http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/

Entering the livingroom, you spotted Gamzee sitting on the sofa. He appeared to be asleep, his elbow sitting on the arm of the couch, his chin resting in the palm of his grey hand. Walking towards his pants leg, you crawled up the pokidotted fabric. You now sat in his lap, looking up. The male troll hasn't moved, crawling up his shirt til you rested on his shoulder. Moving forward a little, you stood on part of his shoulder and part of his leaning neck. Reaching forward, you poked Gamzee's nose. He shook his head and mumbled something, you giggled. Poking his nose once more, no reaction. Touching his nose once more, the sudden movement caused you to fall. You made a screeing noise as Gamzee slapped himself in the face, making him to fully wake up. You landed in his lap, Gamzee strectes than looks down at you. Your little heart raced from the fall, you were scared, you wouldn't move. Small (Tear Color)

OPERATION: SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS!As you may have heard, the CW11 is gonna cancel the block Vortexx, to make way for live-action family content. What some of you may not be aware of is that this will mark the end of Saturday morning cartoons on basic broadcast television for the first time in DECADES! Sure, a lot of the shows through the years were poorly done, but a lot of them I also really enjoyed and they contribute to a huge part of my childhood memories. With the block being canceled, and with the news that The Hub Network is changing from a channel into only a 6-hour block in the middle of the day, animation on TV is undergoing yet another severe loss of exposure to the country.OPERATION: SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS!4 months ago in Personal More Like This

Contest : Becky the pirate mermaidContest : Becky the pirate mermaid2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The fifth Felarya contest opens now !
This time it is for writers ^_^
The theme : Becky the pirate mermaid.
It's directly inspired by this picture
Yes, it's a little crazy concept but I thought there were actually a good amount of elements that could make for an interesting and original story
So write a story about Becky and her crew ^^
Becky sees herself as a full member of the crew : She shares their life, she laugh and drink with them, she has her word when decisions are taken, she protect them and take part in combat, but she is like a blank sheet of paper at this stage. You will have complete free rein to imagine her personality, behavior, quirks and back-story and basically turn her into a full-fledged character.
There are several aspects you can chose to play on :
her relation with the rest of the crew, the personality and role of the various pirates, how that stra

Preventing Injuries for Artists (and people who work with computers)
Hello there my fellow deviants, time for a new update. It’s a long entry, so go grab a snack and sit tight with a good posture, because there's a lot to learn here - even some anatomy.
I just read about Loish’s injury on her blog, and it’s truly saddening to see a fellow artist struggling with a physical limitation that affects their workflow.
Loish is absolutely right, the body has its limits and we ought to be careful before it’s too late.
Tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, aren’t stranger terms to me, many artists and people who work with computers for many hours, tend to deal with the same conditions, some let it advance to the stage where the only treatment is surgery, which can potentially reduce mobility and destroy an illustrator’s career.
Why I Draw Women OftenI recently got a message, and I will slightly reword it so as not to cause profane friction, nor will I state who it came from, but it read like this: "Why is everything you post regarding a woman? I think it's very sexist when the only thing you can draw are breasts and buttocks like it's the only thing in the world."Why I Draw Women Often2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so by now, if you haven't been watching me for a good minute, you know that I really like to draw women, and I like portraying the female form, usually and often in a tasteful manner. I could hypothetically end that question there and just answer "I wasn't aware everything in my gallery was a woman or had breasts and a butt" and then post a picture or two of Rai Rivet... But I'm not going to do that. I'm going to explain my stance on drawing the female form and my adoration for it.

* Even before his birth, the future leader of North Korea was triggering miracles. Official biographers say his birth in a cabin on the slopes of Baekdu Mountain in February 1942 was foretold by a swallow and heralded by a double rainbow. When he was born, a new star appeared in the night sky.
* The first time he picked up a golf club, in 1994, Kim reportedly shot a 38-under par round on North Korea's only golf course, including 11 holes-in-one. He then decided to retire from the sport for ever.
* Kim has the ability to alter the weather simply through the power of thought.
* The fledgling leader was a genius as an infant, with official North Korean biographies stating that he had learned to walk at just 3 weeks and was talking at 8 weeks.
* As a junior high school pupil in Pyongyang, he corrected and chasti
