There was a time when childhood heroes were real life human beings people dreamed of emulating when they “grew up.” There were sports heroes, famous astronauts, war heroes, political figures, the leaders of social and humanitarian causes, etc..

Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy4 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr

How I (Finally) Got Good SkinI get lots of compliments on my skin in my photos. I got told yesterday on my latest set how nice it was. I won't ever deny it; I use photoshop to take out distracting blemishes, but for the most part, my skin is how you see it. I wanted to go into a bit more depth on how I got to this place.

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you

PHOTOMANIPULATION- What constitutes good versus poor aspects of photomanipulation for the group.</i>
As it is defined in our blog ‘Gallery Folders Explained’, a Photomanipulation is an image that consists of elements from two or more photos that have been skilfully blended together. Thus, a photo that has only been altered by the use of a filter does not qualify as photomanipulation, but as photo enhancing.
Here we are giving you a list of the technical aspects that we take into account when we review your photomanipulation submissions. We hope this will be helpful for you beginners and that, likewise, the more experienced photomanipulators will find it useful.

How to win at deviantART: ExposeddeviantART is a categories game.How to win at deviantART: Exposed4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
According to deviantART's hq, "deviantART's algorithm for Popular browse results (ie. front page) is known as Fair Exposure. The goal is to maximize the display of the most popular deviations in a variety of topics with Fair Exposure, the community is exposed to a varied cross-section of deviantART. "
What this boils down to is that certain art categories have inherent ranking advantages and others inherent ranking disadvantages on front page as a means of ensuring that a variety of works from across deviantART are visible on front page and not just that of one category. Sounds pretty good right?
Well let me say before I continue that I do not know deviantART's actual mathematical algorithm for front page ranking. However, I think that anyone who notices the composition of front pages (whether 8 hour or 24, main or by category) and the statistics of the pieces that populate those fronts pages can give you a pretty good guess.

A quiet individual, unless in court, who values intellectual conversations, and wouldn't pass one up for the world. Although not easily angered, he can be very persuasive and level headed even while infuriated. The reasoning behind this is from his court experience, to stay calm even while under pressure. Vlad can be a bit scornful towards others, but deep down he's a wonderful person to get to know, even if his motto is "guilty until proven innocent."
He's quite the perfectionist about his appearance. He has always been nothing more than his brothers shadow, becoming a prosecutor just like him, but never better in her parents eyes. But while studying abroad, his elder brother was murdered

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject

Like I said at the beginning, I know it is just a coincidence, I'm not going to be like those kids who say "they tooootally stole it from my gallery". But in the end this shows how we, the the fakemon creators, can have ideas that can, should and eventually will be implemented in the next gens!!

Omniverse takes place in an Alternate Universe !?!Ever since Omniverse first aired, I've sometimes wondered if the events in Omniverse are taking place in an ALTERNATE UNIVERSE that separates it from the last 3 installments. I mean it is possible given the following reasons why.Omniverse takes place in an Alternate Universe !?!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My first evidence is that the title of the show is called omniverse, which is an actual theory of their being more then one universe, each one having minor to major differences, which also explains why things are different in Omniverse then in the other Ben 10 shows, kinda secretly giving us the clue that OV is in a different universe. My second fact is how they pronounce Albedo's name in Omniverse, in AF/UA they pronounce his name Al-bee-do but in OV they say it as al-bay-do , the only logical way you can go from calling someones name differently is if that person had that name since birth, also Albedo never showed signs of being disturbed by the mispronunciation or points out to people that they were
