“What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
This week I spied an awesome topic in georgewjohnson's journal and knew instantly that it was what I would talk about for edition twenty eight. "Underground train system bosses are set to ban all photos under new proposals that have angered photographers.." You can read the full article for yourself here but I would love to get some discussion going amongst us all as to whether or not the proposed ban would effect you. I'm personally quite pleased that the latest articles report a U-turn in the proposals so it doesn't look

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May
End Date: Monday

Architecture Photography: Introduction
Welcome to the projecteducate Architecture Photography Week!
Boy oh boy! I've been preparing this for a few weeks now so I gathered quite a few articles for you guys! To begin with, I will introduce you to the Architecture Photography Gallery on deviantART with all its sub-categories. Then we'll move on to the basics in Architecture Photography in order to help you take successful photographs. We will also see some of the trends around the Gallery with inspiring examples, just to give you a taste of what you can do and encourage you to give it a try as well!
Along with all these articles, I've also prepared interviews with remarkable architecture photographers within the community, but also outside deviantART! I hope you'll enjoy to get to know these people better.
There is an Architecture Photography Critique Event plan
Site Update: Staff Retreat, .Art, deviantMEETsIn this week's Site Update, we don't have any publicly visible changes, as our Devious Technology (dT), Product, and Product Marketing teams are all still at a staff retreat!Site Update: Staff Retreat, .Art, deviantMEETs2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
At the beginning of the week, the dT team worked on improving our internal development tools to increase efficiency. Then, on Wednesday, we let any staff members at the retreat pitch fun and exciting ideas for deviantART features that could be built in two days. After each feature idea was pitched, everyone from dT chose which projects they'd like to work on. Throughout the year, engineers primarily work on projects that are assigned to them, so sometimes it's important to turn the tables and let them choose projects in which they're most passionate and excited about.
The purpose of these two-day "hackathons" is to build and demonstrate a proofs of con

What is a Kiriban and how to take a screenshotI've noticed several people are unsure of what a Kiriban is, so, I'm here to explain.What is a Kiriban and how to take a screenshot5 years ago in Personal More Like This
A Kiriban, in regards to DA, is basically a set number of page views that you're trying to reach. A "milestone" if you will.
My Kiriban is set at 55,555 which means, if you are page viewer 55,555 then take a screen shot of your page, upload the image somewhere (DA, photobucket..etc..) and send me the link.
Not sure how to take a screenshot?
http://take-a-screenshot.org/ This is one of the most helpful and easy to understand sites that explains how to do it.
What do you get if you win?
Generally the winner/s get to pick a character that I have cosplayed along with a theme or idea for the picture. Vague ideas are okay, specific is better. Either way, I'll do the picture and put your name somewhere on it.
In example: http://koicosplay.deviantart.com/art/50000-Kiriban-SasukeDreamer13-107639415 That's a Kiriban prize I did for a Koi Cosplay Kiriban winner.

A steady breeze flowed throughout the quiet town of Haddonfield, Illinois. It was a cool fall night, just like any other fall night in Haddonfield. Though this night there was something different... something evil..
Her heart was beating so fast it might burst out of her chest, her feet flew through the air as she raced to her house in a mad dash. Everything was going by in a blur around Veronica Strode as she raced on, her feet propelling her forwards like a torpedo.
The night was dark and eerie. The silence was even more unnerving.
Her shoes thudded loudly on the steps as she zoomed up to the front door.Jerking it open frantically she rushed inside and slammed it shut.Panting, she slumped against the wooden frame

What the Judge's Were Saying: We really loved the designs and the story sounded intriguing! It seems like a great off-beat story for Disney to do with charming characters everyone is sure to fall in love with. Congratulations on first place!
What the judges were saying: We adored the idea of Laura and her cow, an historical story of a girl dragging her delightful cow across the country in a quest for peace. Absolutely wonderful idea! We'd LOVE to see it on the big screen - great material!

[Click the image to be taken to the Kickstarter page!]
To quickly recap, I recently launched a Kickstarter project to fund the printing of the first Pon&Zi art book. We have reached and exceeded the original funding goal of $10,000, and I am now certain to be able to get the book printed! If you haven't been to my Kickstarter page to see what's been happening, please take a look by clicking the graphic above. To thank people for preordering the art book, I've created a list of rewards that are exclusively available through my project, so now may be the only chance to get original Pon&Zi watercolor illustrations, hand-painted resin figures, special edition prints and to get your art book signed. <3
Now that I've got more than enough to get the book printed and especially since there are still three weeks before my project deadline, people have begun to ask what I'll do with the extra money. So I've created a stre

In the first season of Friendship is Magic, an animation mistake rendered a background pony with "derpy" eyes. The producers thought it was cute and left it in, occasionally sticking the pony in various scenes. While many people liked calling her Ditzy Doo (based on a remark made in Winter Round Up), the general internet population started calling her Derpy Hooves. Derpy became such a huge phenomenon online that the producers decided to include her in more episodes for Season 2. In Season 2 she started appearing more up close and doing strange things in the backgrounds, making for a fun game of "where's waldo" for the fans. The capper to all this was when Derpy got a speaking role in an episode and was referred to AS Derpy by Rainbow

Binary Bard or Mordred's Story... whatever XDCrap-tastic spelling mistakes in hereBinary Bard or Mordred's Story... whatever XD1 year ago in Personal More Like This
WARNING SWEAR WORDS!
Mordred was born to a wealthy family.
His dad knew mechanics and showed his son them when he was a baby (...). Mordred even had a mechanical rattle (I WANT ONE!). Mordred at the age of 3 knew how to fix certain things. He at school was very bright... most of the time, once he got a spoon up his nose and don't ask me how that happened.
Then things started to go downhill...
At the age of 5 Mordred lost his mother to famine, since they were turned to peasants (not the bird you dumbo head!). His father soon became old, drunk and less caring. Mordred soon found his hide-out to hide in whenever his father got into a drunken fight with the doors or whatever else.
Also Mordred was becoming a loner... and suffered minor depression at the age of 15.
His father died when he was age 20. He was buried in a un-marked grave. Mordred went to find it as he never told him something. Then he saw the very young princes

A month ago or so I posted a fake screenshot of Twilight in a visual novel (VN) -like setting. Well, guess what: it may not be so fake anymore.
After the pic made its way to reddit, a couple of people decided that it'd be cool if the game actually existed. So some guys got talking, and I was contacted through dA, and now we've got a bunch of people working together to make the MLP:FiM visual novel a reality.
The game's pre-production name is Love is Magic Starswirl Academy. It will be written with the Ren'Py engine, and it will feature humanized versions of the mane 6 as well as a few of the prominent BG ponies. Each of the mane 6 will have their respective route, and the player will need to decide which one to play, and how to play it. I don't want to leak
