Look, at the end of the day, this site provides a service. You can choose to pay for it, or you can choose to not pay for it. It works either way. If you really don't like it, not only should you not pay for it, but don't use it. No one is forcing you to.
It seems like a lot of people seem to think that being a member of this site gives them ownership of it. It doesn't. Be grateful it exists. Be happy that it is (now) profitable. For a long time it wasn't. The people who work on it deserve to make some money - they work hard.
If you don't agree with any of this, I think you're lacking in perspective. There's nothing keeping you here if you don't want to be. I think DA does a great job of listening to a vast community and trying to make changes to please it's members. It can't be incredibly dynamic and flexible to accomodate e

Depthcore XLIII - 'TIME'The Depthcore Collective is proud to release it's 43rd themed chapter exhibition, "TIME". As we near our 10th anniversary, this seems to be an appropriate subject for us as a collective to reflect upon. Ten years have passed by, and the students and teenagers who once populated the group are gone, replaced by full time freelance artists, independent small-business owners and focussed creative professionals. Finding the time (oh, the puns are endless with this theme) to create these Chapters has become increasingly difficult.Depthcore XLIII - 'TIME'4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Appreciation and some advice for beginnersI have had this journal in mind for quite a long time, thinking I will find a time to write it down after I find a job (so that I can give 'advice' as a professional ). I've been less active in the past weeks since I was on a probation in a game company and I thought I would make it this time, unfortunately today I was told I have to go back to job hunting again. Anyway I'm not gonna wait any longer since some of my fellow deviants have been asking for advice for a long time.Appreciation and some advice for beginners2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I start – my apologies if some points in this journal are not clear because of language, I am not a native English speaker.
I'm not giving these advice as a professional or an elite artist (I hope I was!), just sharing my learning experience and some personal understanding of conceptual design and arts. Please ignore or correct me if I got things wrong.
Ok. Some related information about myself – I studied computing at university, in my final year I found myself really lack of interests in programming or
BEST. MORNING. EVER.So I was on my way to college and I was just bored as fuck trying to get there in a hurry (a normal morning XD) when I look over and see these two old ladies in a car painted like the British flag. :iconsweetjesusplz: Damn...that car was beautiful :iconitsbeautifulplz: So I was like skdjflkasjfld;skjfs WANT. Well I couldn't resist my next thought. One of the old ladies had her window rolled down, so without further ado I rolled down my window, poked my head out and sang "MARUKAITE CHIKYUU! MARUKAITE CHIKYUU! MARUKAITE CHIKYUU!!---" before I could finish the old lady closest to me stuck her head out and shouted "BOKU HETALIA!!!!" :iconUS-XDplz: Oh my fucking god!!!!

Show some love for these beautiful creatures and adopt a black cat - thanks to stupid supertitions (=stupidity of people), they're people's last choice when adopting.
This is a selection from my Favourites folder - I didn't realise I've selected so many cats, especially my favourite ones - the black cats.

Taxidermy is not ArtFor those of you who are dead set on believing that Taxidermy is not art, let me make this easy for you to understand.Taxidermy is not Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
By definition, taxidermy IS an art form.
the art of preparing, stuffing, and mounting the skins of animals with lifelike effect.
early 19th century: from Greek taxis ‘arrangement’ + derma ‘skin.’
A taxidermist must be skilled in sculpting, sewing, woodworking, designing, and must be knowledgeable in animal anatomy and behavior. The 'dead animal' part is just the dirty work before the real art can begin. Every piece of art starts out ugly before it can become a masterpiece.
The listed skills are considered some sort of art form, right? Well by saying taxidermy isn't art, you're saying those skills are not considered art. Therefore by YOUR definition, 'art' does not exist in any medium, and this site should not even exist.

What A Revolting Development This IsIn light of the news that Warner Bros. is working on a third live action/animated movie starring the Looney Tunes, where the characters will be CGI this time instead of traditionally animated, I wrote a little essay detailing the events of the last two decades that landed the Looney Tunes in the rather sorry state they're in now. Figured I'd share it with my fellow artists.What A Revolting Development This Is3 years ago in Personal More Like This

How Warner Bros. Almost Killed Bugs Bunny
By Jesse J. Barboza
1940 was a busy year, to say the least. America was just clawing its way out from the Great Depression, and world war loomed on the horizon. The oppressive Axis powers were gaining force in Europe, and within one short year, the United States would be pulled into the vicious fray. The nation needed a hero, a figure who could rally the population with strength, wit, and nerve, who could give us hope as well as make us laugh during tough times. Fortunately, this figure arrived on July 27. 1940. And he happened to be

And sadly, no hand or blow in there. Boring. JKJKJK
But really, for the past months, i've been busy with job. We even had to rush a 1-minute anime trailer for 2 weeks at one point.
There were some days of depression too while I had to do job and attend some events, but everyone experiences that, so it's not a huge surprise or watevs.
And I attended 2 events for the past week:
I went to Summer Komikon and saw some of my co-workers there in person. Really awesome!
We even had the chance to play the 1-minute trailer in the projector of the convention. Heheheheheh.

And I went to Maid 2 Travel. I became a part of the event's art contest judges. It was hard to look through the artworks, considering there were many great ones.
Aside from that, it was fun (and really surprising) that I met many fans there. (I rarely meet fans IRL)

Interview with: Mike Inel Hi thereInterview with: Mike Inel2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had a little interview with MikeInel:iconmikeinel:
First of all, who is MikeInel? If you never have heard of him, or saw his artwork, you surely miss something! MikeInel is a 24 year old guy who has a big passion for art and animations. He also makes some awesome games. What I like about Mike is his style, his concepts are wonderful and so deep. You can see he puts his heart in every drawing. If you are interested he also takes commissions a lot and has livestreams very often! So you can watch him work! Isn't that amazing!?
Mike is the maker of the famous animation, about a boy and a girl, separated by a glass wall: "Draw With Me."
Recently he had an "Object Tan" Contest. An Object tan is a character made from an object. (PS3-TAN, even Chair-tan, Fridge-Tan, Wii-tan and go on, haha)
The winner got an amazing animation made my him. The result is wonderful, I really let some tears seeing this. It has an amazing impact, on me
