THE ART OF KNOTTINGTHE ART OF KNOTTING1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
AIMS:The aim of this series of articles is to give a very brief, introductory, overview of the subject of knots. To do so I shall examine the significance and effects of knots; and their uses and techniques, which were, and continue to be, immensely important, if not critical, to human history and evolution on our planet. Naturally the main thrust of the series, in it's totality, will be threefold:
1: Relating it, (the series of articles on knotting), to this amazing project on Art History in particular, it's effects on "Art" in all senses of the term, as well as Knots as an "Art form", (not to mention various "Craft" forms!), in and of themselves.
2: Although I shall try not to be "skimpy" or too "cursory" in my inclusions, this is an "introduction" to the subject, so is not designed to be definitive at all... merely, I hope, interesting and varied enough to whet the readers appetite for the subject...

By February of 1945, thousands upon thousands of panic stricken refugees who managed to survive
the grueling exodus from the eastern regions flooded into Dresden and other towns and cities seeking
shelter and help. On the 14th and 15th of February, Dresden was incinerated. Virtually every city
that refugees were known to have flocked to, from Kiel to Swinemünde, suffered from major
catastrophic Allied bombing attacks as part of "Operation Thunderclap" and "Operation Clarion" at
the hight of their exodus.
Two Allied air raids were carried out on the old city of Königsberg on August 26/27 and August
29/30, 1944 based on "misinformation" from Churchill that it was a "a modernised heavily

Stamps; For Beginners and Beyond
I have been contemplating an article that explains and showcases the power of stamps in the dA community for some time, and it seems almost appropriate in light of recent events, to create this article now.
This article aims to cover common questions around stamps, and provide links to resources, for creating stamps. Not only does this article aim to target beginners or those that do not know about stamps, but it also aims to feature some of the most creative examples of how artists have managed to do so much with such a small canvas. This article can even provide tips and inspiration for seasoned and experienced stamp-makers, whilst encouraging the appreciation of stamps by everyone all-round.
So what are stamps?
I'm sure this is a question that many of you encountering this article are already asking. Stamps are small, pixel creations (traditionally 99x56px in size), that originate from righ

If you're freaking out about pectoral muscles and wing placement, keep reading, because I'm talking to you.
The goal of this project is to have a winged humanoid which looks as human as possible. No silly ears, no tail, no oversized pectorals. Those are the INITIAL RESTRICTIONS I placed upon myself to even get started because there are just so many options with a topic like this.
But! I still have to justify all those things and I already have. I have explanations for all your problems. EVEN THE PECTORALS THING.
My second goal is to show my viewers it's entirely possible to research and make your fantasy world and creatures AWESOME and somewhat reasonable if you put forth the effort. I want to inspire you, or at least leave you more critical of the next fantasy

Tribute to the german citiesHi dear members!Tribute to the german cities2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We added a new video permanently on the main-page of the group, because it really touched me.
It is about the downfall of the Germans and their cities in the 2. world war and the big resurrection!
You must know, no country was ever bombed so badly like Germany, the british and american bombers destroyed around 1000 historical cities, often causing a so called firestorm, even in the last weeks of the war, like in Dresden, Würzburg or Potsdam. The capital city Berlin was a collection of ruins, what the Germans built in 2000 years, was destroyed...the allied thought, Germany will become an unimportant land of farmers now, a borderland between east and west. But they were completely wrong, because they forget the character of the german folk! Hard working, disciplinated people that help each other!
And so Germany could rise from the ruins, like a phoenix from ashes and after a few decades, Germany is again the strongest economy in Europe, after two lost world wars. After e

so, sunstone volume 2 is officially announced for april
aaand this time i won't be an idiot XD
i should explain XD
last year i made a comic called death vigil. issue 1 sold relatively well.
and then i fucked up hard XD
see, i never knew that preorders regulate print runs for indie books. yeah turns out if you don't have movie money behind you you don't print that many issues because you are likely going to lose money XD
so as i didn't know about importance of preorders, i never mentioned them to fans and readers...
this reflected on the printrun of issue 2...and we underprinted.
aaand issue 2 became very hard to find and the book started tanking XD
irony was people wanted to buy it, it was just that there weren't enough printed.
i won't repeat this mistake again. i got burned hard once and that was enough XD
so , if you want to have a guaranteed copy , preorders are the only way to h

It's especially cute of you, a middle aged man, to cry and moan about me on a teenage boy's profile ( :iconspazkid1997: )....very mature, totally not-at-all-fucking-skeevy behavior.
And as usual, you don't know how to read, or you know how to read but are willing to ignore the most important points and lie about them for the sake of further crybabying. Where did I say there weren't any such thing as black supremacist groups? The very post you linked to has me saying that there are none who "pose a threat" to us white people, and that is the truth. There is no manner in which minorities are oppressing white people or making life more difficult for white people. White people remain the most privileged in both of our countries. Racism does not "go both ways" in America or Canada. It is still
