My views on race, ethnicity and history
So, the correct lablel would be a white supremacist. While "white supremacy" is often associated with being an insane racist yelling "kill all the niggers, all the j00s", it's not exactly about that. Killing niggers and jews and whoever else is like the cherry on top of the whole idea, a last resort if you will.
No, when I'm saying that I'm a white supremacist, I mean a very specific thing - the reality of the modern world. This reality is the following: caucasian civilization owns and runs this shit. We're everywhere. Our white european technology, religion, methodology, philosophy and science outlasted and outdone everything else. We are the leaders and the cement. In the turmoils of the last 2 millenia we came on top and made everyone else f
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.
Parasitic dependance or BEST FRENS FOREVURRLately I've been thinking about how incomplete many people are. About a trail of wrecked expectations I leave behind to my own general indifference about the matter.Parasitic dependance or BEST FRENS FOREVURR1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'd like to share some of my observations with you, my watchers.
You see, I'm an extrovert. I'm social, I'm talkative, I quickly involve myself with other people – I like that, really. I don't expect much from people, and feel that general communication is a pleasant way to fill in time between productive things – and I hope people don't expect much from me either in such situations.
But I've learned maybe a bit late in my life, that many people mistake my extroversion and sociality for openness and friendliness. They often think that they are my friends, when I think of them as of aquaintances at best. And thus, they start to project this "friendship" where it doesn't exist. They mistake my altruism for friendliness. They mistake my desire to communicate for something bigger.
And at a point, they get confronted with the f

Why people need to stop...... whining about female warrior and super heroine character designs.Why people need to stop...2 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/

You played in the woods, the leaves falling from the trees. You giggled and laughed as you tossed your ball around. The stripped colored ball, rolled away from you. You followed it, but stopped when your ball stopped by a man's feet. The faceless man picked it up, you smiled as he tossed it back to you. Catching it in your small hands, you ran up to the well dressed man. Lifting the ball up to him, taking it into his own hand, the other rubbed your hair. You giggled, he turned you around, pushing you to walk forward. You turn around to face him, you were only a couple of feet away. Slenderman bounces the ball to you, catching it once more, you throw back to him. You two played with the ball for a while til he looked off to the side, you held the ball in your arms. Slenderman started to walk away, you followed. But he stopped you, letting you know to stay here. Than he left. Your frown didn't stay long, you smiled once more. Dropping the

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.
40k community and critisimYa know, I'm fed up with it.40k community and critisim2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I post an artwork on a fucking WEBSITE DEDICATED TO ART, I expect some fucking artistic critique, some discussion about technique, tips for improvement, all that fancy art jazz. Even when it's fandom-related, and natural to talk about those points, I sort of expect people to respect the artist.
But noooo... The dA 40k community gets more atrocious during the day and I feel more and more ashamed to be a part of it.
Becuase like, 50% of feedback that I get on my 40k art isn't about the artwork, or the characters there, no, it's fucking stupid X FACTION IS COOLER, FUCK YEAH X FACTION! MY FAVE FACTION BEATS UR STUPID FACTION N CHARACTERS! (ADD SOME STUPID OUTCRY FROM THE LORE BELONGING TO X FACTION). I get stupid notes and messages like DRAW MORE X, and shit.

The Leviathan and the Death of HopeWarning: contains spoilers concerning the Leviathan DLC, Mass Effect 3 and my notions about what good writing is. Duh.The Leviathan and the Death of Hope2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are moments when I wish I could just turn off my writer's sense at a whim and "just go with it". Ignore that a story in a game, or a movie, or a book, or a TV show is flawed in my opinion, just to enjoy the views, get an adrenaline rush from all the flashing colors and have fun. And truth be told - it usually works that way... Just not for the universes I tend to care about. If you got me invested in your franchise, I will expect you to deliver the goods. 'Tis how the cookie crumbles.
Which brings me to the Leviathan DLC. I've seen a lot of positive reviews and emotions towards it popping up all over the internet before I was even able to check it out myself. My hopes were high, and, initially, I loved it. It had a sense of exploration Mass Effect 3 was seriously lacking and the TGES Mining Base really reminded me of Noveria... It was spot on.

-Make songs about VERY SPECIFIC CHARACTERS (you try to make something about Lyra or whatever? GTFO basically)

Five Tips to Starting FreelancingSo, you're tired of being unemployed. You've been stuck at home for the umpteenth month in a row, a new season of The Legend of Korra is still a year off, and your government support checks (should you be lucky to still be getting them) won't even come close to affording you a bus ticket to Everfree Northwest. Your evaluation of life is the same dissertation of tedium and monotony as Helen Keller's review of Chinese Democracy.Five Tips to Starting Freelancing2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You know, pretty much on par with every other review of Chinese Democracy.
But know what? If you can't find a job, you'll make a job! Screw finding work, and screw the employers who keep dismissing your applications for being "over qualified" like that Bachelors of Science in Graphic Design is as detrimental to your character as being a registered felon. Screw them and that stupid help wanted sign at Quiznos. Now you're freelancing, baby.

Blue LavaI have discovered something awesome. Something squishy Nel should do.Blue Lava6 months ago in Personal More Like This
You are looking at blue lava! That is not a recolor, it's not a trick, it's real blue lava. There is a volcano in Indonesia that is a sulfur mine for the island. And when it erupts, because there's so much sulfur on the volcano, the lava turns blue.
Sulfur as many of you new to chemistry may have learned, is a yellow mineral, but when you light it on fire, it burns with a blue flame. So that is why this is happening. It also creates a toxic gas that is highly poisonous to humans.
So now that blue lava does in fact exist, guess what I gotta have Neltharion do! He's gotta spit blue lava now! I have to draw him like this. Have him like down huge cakes of sulfur and then...blech...blue lava! And best yet, it would be an excellent breath weapon

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
Robin's Pants PSAAs you might know, my comic's protagonist is fairly androgynous--Professor Birch asks "are you a boy or a girl?" because he literally can't tell. (He then labels Robin a 'borl' and moves on without ever getting a real answer.) Unfortunately, Robin's ambiguous appearance has caused a lot of ignorant, bigoted attitudes to come crawling out of the woodwork. Please be warned that from now on, I will call you out if I find you leaving cissexist or transphobic comments or jokes on my comic. This really isn't a big deal... I'm not going to start publicly shaming anyone, I will just start pointing out any problematic comments that pop up instead of letting them 'slide'.Robin's Pants PSA8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Irn Bru is made from girders, the Scots claim. And I believe them.
The alarmingly coloured liquid is “Scotland’s other national drink” after the obvious Whiskey. It’s been produced since 1901 and is now illegal in Canada because it contains Ponceau 4R, a food colourant that is considered a carcinogenic be some food standard agencies around the world. One which may cause a reaction in those allergic to aspirin and intensify the effects of asthma. Even the USA, who are generally happy to eat anything, insisted the formula be altered before sale within its borders, and even then it can only be purchased in 500ml bottles out of the fear that any greater intake will result in someone dissolving.
“Irn Bru” is the phonetically written pronunciation of “Iron Brew”, as said with the collective speech impediment that is the Scottish accent (the result of collapsed nasal passages due to centuries of
