Days of Doodles
Mindful Meditation of Daily Drawing
Foreword by techgnotic
Gabriel Picolo is a graphic design student in Brazil who has provided at least two people—me and himself—a most compelling reason for getting out of bed every morning in 2014. He calls it the 365 Days of Doodles Project, for which he creates, each day, one of his wildly imaginative pencil sketch and ink drawings (quite a bit more elevated than a “doodle”—more like a free-flowing meditation).
A Killjoy Christmas PoemA Killjoy Christmas Poem2 years ago in Personal More Like This
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and in the first Zone,
A little red Killjoy was headed for home.
His sled was a Trans Am with sand-crusted tires,
And a sleek gleaming hood with a spindly spider.
The windows were down, and the radio blared,
And a chill winter wind whipped the frost through his hair.
The Trans slightly swerved on the ice-covered road,
Leaving slushy brown tracks in the powdery snow.
In the trunk of the car sat a small leather bag,
Covered in stitches, old patches, and tags.
Heavy lumps shifted beneath the worn leather,
Clanking and chilling in the icy cold weather.
Inside the dark kitchen, with a rusty steel grill,
Kobra curled up on a mattress to ward off the chill.
With a glowing orange heater that hummed on the floor,
And a heavy blue blanket that warmed him to the core.
Ghoul was sprawled out in the cramped storage room,
Squeezed in with the buckets, the towels, and brooms.
His mouth hung wide open, and he let out a snore,

Some cosplayers are fat.Get over it.Some cosplayers are fat.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
people cannot help their weight,why should you care how over weight they are? if i hear one more person talk bad about someone i know just because they are heavy,fat,chunky,chubby,fluffy,pudgy or any other word for overweight you can fit here,i'm going to remind you how cosplay is about fun,its not about size,size does NOT equate beauty.and that no one is perfect and none of us ever will be.
so if you are so offended by someone cosplaying something just because of how they look,don't look at them.you'd miss out on a lot of awesome cosplay though.and it is a shame that any of that crap matters to people in the first place.so fat,skinny,ugly,pretty,plain,doesnt matter,cosplay to have a good time not the labels people put on you,or that you put on others.
i see these assholes all the time,cosplay is a HOBBY its for FUN.it doesn't matter what any of us look like to quote aldeld "you are all just nerds in costumes in the end."
Why I Write So I've been seeing a lot of poetry floating around about why people write. I thought, well, I might as well do one as well But I don't want to make an actual deviation out of it because this isn't actually going to be a poem. I don't think.Why I Write3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been through some stuff in my life, it's not as extreme as some have it, but it is there. There's been lots of pain, sadness, confusion, rage, teenage angst (I had to add it), unrequited love (or just half assed crushes that never got anywhere), blood, sweat, and tears, etc... Either way, the point is that I've been through more than I can say for a lot of my fellow peers (at school, mind you. It seems everyone on deviantArt has some sob story one way or another). I wouldn't say I write to convey my feelings, opinions, thoughts, and emotions, though that is a huge part of why I do.
I'd say I write to find. I write because I want to find others who feel what I feel, who think what I think, who experience what I

Amigurumi- Working Without a PatternAmigurumiAmigurumi- Working Without a Pattern2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Working Without a Pattern
Hi everyone! I'm TheSmall-Stuff and what I love is to make amigurumi, but I'm never patient enough to use a pattern. Because of this, I've found and developed a bunch of techniques that I use while designing the dolls that I make! What I'm going to try to do is explain my thought process in making a doll, and share some of the techniques that I use to form the shapes and the details in a character. Sorry it's long, but I tried to use lots of pictures. I hope this helps! Lets start
Shapes are key!
When you go to make a doll, you need to pick it apart in your head and see all of the shapes that make the character. Sometimes it's easier to draw out a diagram of all of the pieces that go into the doll, to get a good idea of how it fits together. While you're planning, it's good to be thinking "How do I make this?" while you choose shapes. However

The FAQlest i forget.The FAQ6 years ago in Personal More Like This
for the COMPREHENSIVE stuff, head on over to my blog at http://snowfern.com, check out the links in the sidebar, or plow through my wordy posts for links, tips and general ramblings.
i will no longer entertain questions related to how i make/where to buy stuff as 1) i'm more interested in making than teaching 2) it's faster for both of us if you'd just read or google for it 3) i'm not a fan of tautology. oh, and i'm a grumpy old lady XD
if it's not stated in the blog, it means i consider it either common knowledge (which you can find easily with the help of google or a quick browse at the bookstore/library) or that i just don't feel like writing about it (due to either complications, or lack of confidence, or just...don't want to). I think the most important lesson a person can learn, is learning how to learn yanno, learning how to fish vs given a fish, yada yada yada...
but, for those with a shorter attention span (me inclusive, don't get all insulted ok? XD)
Comments and Commenting We all know that getting the exposure you want for your work is a tough endeavour here on dA. Despite the wonders of the site, the simple fact of the matter is that comments are hard to come by these days.Comments and Commenting2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
There may be many reasons for this - lack of time on the part of many browsers, lack of interest, or simply: not knowing what to say. We've all been there at one point (some of us more than others), and it presented the question - "what is it that writers want out of a comment?"
The only way to find the answer to this question was to set up a poll - which received an amazing response from the lit community, and with your help, this editorial will highlight some points that will aid in leaving some insightful and appreciated comments.
First and foremost - Read.

Breaking in to Lit!IntroductionBreaking in to Lit!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Literature has long been considered one of the closest knit communities on deviantART. As a result, some people find it difficult to "break in" to the Lit crowd. There are rumors of elitism, difficulty in getting exposure, and lack-luster appreciation for the incredible work that goes into writing a good piece of prose or a well structured poem.
If you look at a painting you can see amazing detail, great use of color, and the importance of the subject immediately. You know it came from the artist's imagination and that he or she had to spend hours translating that to a canvas. The tangibility of the work is right in front of you. With writing, it is not quite the same. The effort the author puts into the work can only be appreciated if readers put in their own effort to read the work. The gratification is not instant, which is one reason the lit community is so close knit.
Those who do have large followings often also comment and read quite a lot of work h
