There has always been this obsession with the others we share this planet with.
We communicate with them on certain basic levels and yet they inhabit a plane so different from ours: savage, instinctive, a life of sheer survival. At the same time they can do things beyond human abilities: fly through the skies, swim the oceans, apply t

I've been playing Alien: Isolation for the last few weeks and it is scary as hell.
Alien Isolation Q&A with bradwright
Brad Wright, longtime deviant in the dA community, steps into the shoes (space boots) of Giger and Moebius as a concept designer for the Alien Isolation videogame. The game reportedly marks a return to the terror of the original “Alien” film in which scaring the audience to death was the goal, rather than the uncorking escalating levels of defensive firepower that defined the sequels.

Your head-swapping chart (DoA5U)As some of you might know, I actually have the game files and can port just about anything(including stages) from DoA5U. But, I don't have the time and patience like VeiradA to rename bones which is why I don't release XNALARA/XPS stuff. But for those that are interested in doing simple costume swaps here's what you need to know.Your head-swapping chart (DoA5U)8 months ago in Personal More Like This
NOTE: The nude mods use Kasumi's body as far as I know. Because her base body(No Costume) is actually in the game files or you could use Alpha's body. I actually don't know for sure, but what you need to know is that only Kasumi and Helena's full unclothed bodies are actually in the game files, the rest are retrofitted to those bodies.
Assuming the porter did NOT change the scale of the mesh
Could be swapped(head and body match perfectly):
1.) Mila, Hitomi, Kokoro and Pai Chan. (S)
2.) Kasumi and Ayane. (M)
3.) Helena, Tina and Rachel. (Lisa has an ever slightly wider neck) (L)
4.) Christie and Sarah. (T)

A PSA on artistic studiesOkay guys, I feel like I've had to say this a million times already so let me just compile my thoughts here in this journal, one last time.A PSA on artistic studies1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My studies have been getting a lot of attention recently, and I appreciate all the nice comments, but... I'm not going to pretend like I'm some kind of authority on art. Lots of people have asked if they can use my studies as reference-- you're welcome to use my stuff, but I would highly recommend you study from life instead.
I can not overstate how much better it is to study directly from real life, whether it's from photos or a live model sitting in front of you. An artist will make mistakes, and if you look to their studies as a guide for your own artistic development, you risk making those same mistakes-- that won't be an issue if you work directly from the source material, i.e., reality.
I've had numerous people request that I do a study in a particular style of clothing that they're trying to learn. This doesn't make any se
Stay awayI would caution you all to stay away from this group http://characterrealism.deviantart.com/Stay away1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Im not sure what they are doing but they are telling artists to change their works if they want in the groups.
I love all artists no matter their level, If someone wants help or want to learn to draw thats fine, But I find it disrespectful to tell people to change their work. With the levels of art the this group allows, and the art of the people allowing the art, I find it a joke what they are doing. I would stay away from this group.
It's supposed to be realistic original characters..but Its not. It whatever they want and how they want.
Never change your art to fit into a group or be accepted, Its dumb, be yourself and do what you do no matter what.

Health tips for artistsI just wanted to write down some little reminders. You may find this article a touch twee, but trust me, they're all useful.Health tips for artists4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Blood circulation is good for you.
Try to move a little around. If you're starting to work, work from home, or are just not a sports guy, you'll notice things like back aches or shoulder pains. Sitting in a chair eight hours a day is bad enough, but I'm assuming you're doing art for the love of it, and will continue to sit and create after work. You don't have to run a marathon every day, but stand up and move yourself every once in a while. If you say you don't have the time, think about how much those pesky back aches distract you from working.
Your eyes are very important.
If you're not already wearing glasses, chances are you might need them when your workspace is set up badly. Drink enough. Your eyes are mostly water, and need lots of replacement. Three litres a day are a rule of thumb for drinking - you'll notice the differ

The Shape of Things to ComeYou want change on DeviantArt. Everyone here has something they would change. We do listen and, yes, we can’t get everything done. Still, as a community, with any change we change together because we are all here together.The Shape of Things to Come4 months ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
We found major talent to join the DeviantArt team this year to help us assume responsibility for major change and deliver on it. In return, we will be calling on the whole community to exercise its responsibility of continuing to shape DeviantArt into the place where the global undercurrent of creativity feeds the future of popular culture.
DeviantArt is as binary as it is digital in its platform. We serve equally those who produce art as those who need to see art and engage with it. Creating the undercurrent is a function of tools as much as it is a function of community activity. Getting these two to work in unison has always been the secret sauce of DeviantArt – and every recipe for the sauce begins

But almost always I see copyright infringement from arts of my friends, and I will now explain with a step by step how you will remove YOUR work from other profiles. I explained that to some Deviantart members before, who had their art stolen, and all they did, works 100%!
You must follow this instruction correctly, ok?

New Username SymbolsAs part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.New Username Symbols1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

Acts of Creation Part 1CREATED BY…?Acts of Creation Part 14 years ago in Personal More Like This
Two words that define so much in a persons head, not so much about who did/does what but, about who created the whole character, the concept, the supporting cast…
Picture this (in an awesome Rod Sterling voice); a talented artist sits alone in his studio wanting to be appreciated for his ideas as well as his artistic talents. On his drawing board sits a rendering of a superhero. This character is dark and brooding, like any good piece of art it speaks volumes. We can see he is angry, that he prefers to serve his form of justice at night and violently. The poor state of his costume shows that he has either had a bad night or that he lacks the wealth of a Bruce Wayne. Along the bottom is written "THE MIDNIGHT FREAK".
Ding – dong. The doorbell rings and his friend turns up with whom he is going to see a movie, this friend is a writer.
So the writer sees the drawing and thinks it is amazing, what's more it inspires him to come up with ideas that the artist didn't. Now the arti

In a nutshell, a Fan Hater is someone in a Hatedom, who hates not only the work, but also the fans of that work." -TVTropes, Fan Hater article.
I hate this mentality. It's rude, time wasting (not in a good way, either), wasteful, stupid, needlessly judgmental, close-minded, and insane.
1. It is none of your business what works of fiction someone else likes.
2. They are not stupid for liking something that you, personally, hate. Everyone has their reasons for liking or disliking something, and you just have to deal with it as long as they're also minding their own business.
3. Personal taste is fiction IS NOT and WILL NEVER be a measuring stick for intelligence or common sense. Sure, I might think that James Cameron's Avatar is a preachy, expensive Dances With Wolves knock-off with a nonsensical videogame-like setting and bullshit philosophy, but those are just my personal feelin
