♥ Thank You! ♥
I'm not that great with words, but I'm going to try my best to figure out how to express just how much this means to me (If you don't like all this emotional stuff, feel free to skip right to the free stuff!) I remember the days when I first started dA, posting the occasional base doll and feeling lucky when I got just one fav. Now here I am, two years later, with 600 watchers and some of my idols from the very beginning loving my art. /)////(\
As I'm sure I've mentioned in past thank you posts, I sincerely owe all of this to my watchers. I only joined because my friends told me to, I started off with no intentions of actually working on or improving my art skill. It was you who pushed me to try harder, to try new things, and do more for the dA community than I ever imagined. I would have never thought coming into this site that I'd get as

I thought of this contest because it would be interesting what you guys would come up with!
This contest is not about how good the drawings are. You win with the best design and detail you put in this!
My favorite design(s) will win 1st place and will be the official human design(s) for Rosaline!
Rosaline's reference sheet:
Something to know about her:
Rosaline is a classy gal who likes to wear dresses and skirts.
Her favorite colors are purple and pink!
You can ask if there's more you'd like to know!
What you have to do:
- Draw her as a human the way you think she would look the best!
- Make sure you have the traits that make her recognizable:
Pink hair, purple eyes and pink eye shadow. I also see her as a Caucasian.
- Make her a great outfit or two... or three!
- You can draw her in her "def
'Needs Improvement' Folders- How to Deal with themIn light of recent events where a friend of mine was suspended for having such a folder, I decided to observe those who had been affected and determined that a logical and calm way to deal with these needs to be made.'Needs Improvement' Folders- How to Deal with them3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"So, Typh," you may ask, "what are 'Needs Improvement' folders, anyway?" Why, my dear readers, they're simply a Favourites folder that some people will dump art in if they deem that the piece 'needs improvement'. Usually, (and I just yanked these from the Newest section on the main page, so I'm not specifically targeting anyone) submissions like
will be put in these folders, leaving the uploader confused and most likely frustrated. Honestly, and this is my opinion, I think that all art should be dumped in such a folder. Anyway, the target of these folders will definitely want some answers. While I think that going after pictures such as the ones above specifically is a bit biased, the folder maker has an unspoken point

"Get a life."
This one would only work if you were trying to insult a dead person. May work on zombies and emo kids.
"Yeah, you keep thinking that."
This will work on zombies. It makes them feel like shit so it could count as a blow. They have no brains. This is why they want yours.
"Learn to spell."
This is good for when you are confronting a really bad wizard or when you have nothing better to say. I reccomend it in moderation.
"You're just a hater."
It's always valid. Always. Everyone hates somethin

What it means: A feeling of longing associated with displacement, but not necessarily displacement from one’s original home. An intense yearning to be somewhere you are not. Hiraeth also expresses a sort of ache or longing for something of the past, somewhat similar to the notion of "golden" or "good old days," but with more ancient connotations.
Why it needs to be a thing in English: I speak as someone from a country

With great access comes the great responsibility of discernment.

As we traverse the final phases of maximum raw information accumulation, potentially equipping us for jacking in to the promise of the Singularity, the contents of many lifetimes’ worth of knowledge, art, education, and history are now at our fingertips. More and more Universities, libraries and arts institutions have swung open their digital doors and granted access to their lectures, courses and curricula free of charge to anyone in the world with a connection to the web. Access to education is fundamentally shifting our society towards an unmappable
One Reason....... why I try not to comment about people's weight.One Reason...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I used to attend a particular conference on an annual basis, and so I got to (casually) know the other "regulars" who also used to be there. Every year, more or less, I'd see the same group of people at the speakers' dinner, and we could catch up on the usual "what are you up to these days?" kind of stuff. One of the guys I used to see fairly often was a tall heavy-set fellow (some might call him "fat" or "obese") he'd always been tall, bearded, and big, to me. But one year, he showed up and he had lost a lot of weight. It took me a second to recognize him, and I said, "Hey, Rich! You look great! You've lost a lot of weight!" and he looked at me and deadpanned, "Yeah, pancreatic cancer will do that."
Do I need to belabor the point? I will. First off, I set myself up for a massive head-fuck, by making assumptions about what was going on in someone else's life, and - even though I was being friendly about it - I was horribly wro

My name is Charles Snippy. I am probably the last sane human being left on earth. I know not whether you will understand this message. I know not whether you'll even be able to decode the ones and zeros on these data cards. I know not whether my voice will even reach anyone.
I know not, whether the microscopic drives will last long enough and whether the plastic and metal which composes them will not disintegrate into dust as centuries pass or whether the titanium shell encasing them will remain in place or be consumed by the ever-changing landscape, lost forever.
And yet I still have hope that someone will find the story of my life, long past and learns something of use from it.
If you are still human, then this will be a story about the collapse of civilization of your forefathers through greed and arrogance.
If you are some other species entirely, then it is a story about how our human race was extin

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

"Emperor! They have taken Blackwood." said a messenger panting as if he had run all the way from Blackwood to the Imperial City. "Then war is upon us. Ready the men." proclaimed Titus Mede III, current Emperor of Tamriel. The Empire now only consisted of Cyrodiil and High Rock. "And see if Ulfric Stormcloak will answer our call for aid." Two days later in Windhelm Ulfric, High King of Skyrim called an important meeting on whether or not his Stormcloak army would join the war. In attendance were Delphine and Esbern leaders of the now restored Blades, the other eight Jarls of Skyrim, Aela the Huntress representing the Companions, Karliah representing the small but powerful Nightingales and Dovahkiin, the Dragonborn who rid Tamriel of Dragons.
