A Shooting in AuroraLate last night, a lone gunman went on a killing spree in a movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado.A Shooting in Aurora3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At least 12 people were murdered, and many more were wounded; some of them are in critical condition.
If you are a spiritual person, please say a prayer for the dead, the dying, and those living touched by this tragedy.
If you are not a spiritual person, any happy thoughts or kind gestures would surely be appreciated.
Please refrain from any speculation, politicization, rumor-mongering, conclusion-jumping, finger-pointing, and other similarly inappropriate behavior for just a little while, if possible. It hasn't even been 12 hours since the tragedy took place, and that sort of unproductive demagoguery is already being handled nicely by the 24-hour news venues.
Real tragedies like this happen, all over the world, and our responsibility to our fellow man is to render aid & support, be it large or small, in times of crisis.
On the subject of Erotic art and stuffI often feel like im perhaps wasteing my talent drawing erotic art. Like yeah I enjoy it a lot. It satisfies my own pleasures, gets a lot of attention and feedback and its simply very addicting. I don't blame you lot for liking it but at the end of the day where is it all leading to? I don't really want to be known for drawing perverted pics but at the same time I feel somewhat forced to make them to get known. Like being stuck in a trap, it feels dirty in a way... like im not only cheating my way up the system but also just creating bland one dimensional images which only serve one purpose.On the subject of Erotic art and stuff3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I can tottaly understand how frustrated some of the more "serious" artists here get because art like mine gets all the attention whilst thier art however more skillful or tasteful it may be hardly gets any attention at all. IN return they look down upon it. seeing it as cheap and "not serious enough or deep enough to provoke any serious emotions" even

I am an art thief...Hey peeps!I am an art thief...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Any of you who follow my journals know how passionate I am about pursuing the seemingly endless procession of art-thieves that pop up with increasing regularity. I was recently directed to this website, I Am An Art Thief/Plagiarism Exposed: http://www.iamanartthief.com/
I'm putting this out there so those not in "the know" can educate themselves and, even more importantly, so that any of us can easily report these people when we stumble upon them. No, these aren't the art-police but, in my 20+ years of experience in dealing with these types, I've found that public exposure is the best tactic. Cockroaches HATE the light. Just be sure that if you're planning on outing someone have your evidence ready to go. This isn't a witch-hunt against people copying someone else art in an attempt to learn or for mere enjoyment. It's for people copying someone's art, claiming it as their own, and/or

Apparel Collection: ALL dAY EVERY dAY“ALL dAY EVERY dAY” represents the artist’s constant love for making art. This drive and determination is always working in the back of our minds, always noticing inspiring things, always adding notes and drawings to notebooks, and always thinking creatively. DeviantART is a wonderful, swirling artistic ecosystem with a fertile breeding ground for this never-ending creative spirit.Apparel Collection: ALL dAY EVERY dAY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently at deviantART, we tried out a small-scale collaborative program, bringing in outside artists to illustrate pieces for the seasonal clothing line. For the piece ALL dAY EVERY dAY, I’m proud to introduce Tony Van Groningen, or tonybricker here on dA. It’s always a pleasure to hand an artistic brief off to an artist and have them come back with an exciting piece that can go a few rounds in collaborative sessions to make final. Working collaboratively brings multiple viewpoints to the drawing board and adds a great deal of richness to successful pieces.

Prints Tips: Cropping and the Bleed EdgeHello, everybody! I'm renonevada. For those that don't know, one of my jobs here at deviantART HQ is as quality control for prints. I look at every print before it is purchased for the first time to make sure that it will print properly. Some of the things I look out for are copyright infringement, cropping, pixelation, and to make sure it doesn't violate other policies, such as being too pornographic.Prints Tips: Cropping and the Bleed Edge2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I plan on making a series of journals explaining how to make sure your prints will be approved when they get to me. I know that I'm excited to see the notification letting me know a print has been sold and I want to do what I can to make sure you all see it, as well.
For this journal, I want to speak about Cropping and the Bleed Edge.
This is hands down the number 1 reason why I am forced to reject a print, which in turn will cancel a sale. Because of this, I have tried to make this journal as detailed as possible.

It give me some good inspiration, So i am putting it all together so that somebody facing problem from haters or enemies and feeling depressed just like me (not now , in last month)
Here is my points
1) This is internet, anybody can Abuse anybody if they want.If you want to learn to deal with it, just look at Politicians,Film Actors etc etc.. they all are having the Abuse problem from all their haters.They dont care really, because they Realized it before us and that's why they are now Proud and became famous.
