That's when you run into it.
A black monolithic square box that almost takes up all your monitor space when you look at it. It's huge, unappealing, artistic only to a hardcore Andy Warhol, and it has a message it want to share with you. A "cry" for help that screams like a teenager who watches too much angsty anime and listens to too much Linkin Park and Evanescence. You wonder who the hell made this ugly travesty and how it got to the TOP of the most popular in the last eight hours category.
You click to the artist's gallery: THEY'RE EVERYWHERE, And all of them have immense amounts of views and likes. Comments are not allowed on any of them. Those who speak their mind and dislike this account are blocked.

Almost DDs: Volume 6I suggest DDs.Almost DDs: Volume 63 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It's a tricky business. You have to find a piece you're passionate about. You have to make a case that's convincing, but not begging or posh-sounding. I have had a few bursts of luck- 4 accepted suggestions, but the good bulk of my suggestions don't make it.
I realize that the GM have to make some tough choices. But I want to give my suggestions another chance, in case it was something on my end that was why they declined them.
And I still felt they deserved a feature.
As a note, a few pieces this time are not eligible for DDs because the artist received a DD on a different piece after I suggested it.They'll have *s. Some of these pieces are also pending suggestions, but if a GM sees multiple suggestions of the same piece, I think it ups the chances!
So, without further ado, the Almost DDs, Volume 6!Please show these artists some love, and if you really love a piece, suggest it as a DD!

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

FYI i learn more from watching things so most of these are gonna be video tutorials, artists talking while painting and timelapse paintings, since i prefer analyzing peoples workflow and try it out than straight tutorials that tell you what to do (not there's anything wrong with it though )

5 Career Killers“Whatever happened to that guy? The guy that drew that thing?5 Career Killers5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Comic careers are like any other career in entertainment: if you don't stay relevant and adapt to a trend, you'll eventually peak and then bottom out. But there are more things that can help end a career. Here's a list of 5 that I've been thinking about lately.
1. SOCIAL MEDIA TAKE-DOWN
The creator does something that somehow goes viral, turning his (or her) readers against him. Bad behavior at a convention, sexual harassment online, or a semi-racist Tweet made worse by bumbling attempts to correct it. Or maybe the creator gets blamed for something innocent: innocent comments taken out of context, or involvement in a controversial project that he had no say over. Whatever the case, “social media take-downs” can harm careers, leaving a permanent black mark on your career.
I imagine this one is the most common: no matter how hard you work—and no matter how much a

Neo-Victorian Steam-powered Fantasy: SteampunkWelcome to the land that never was in an era that had never been looking forward to the future that never came.Neo-Victorian Steam-powered Fantasy: Steampunk1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome, to steampunk.
1. What is steampunk?
Steampunk is a retro-active subgenre of science fiction that incorporates elements of historical fiction, adventure, horror, speculative fiction, fantasy and alternative history. It exists as a hybrid genre that focuses on a re-imagining of the Industrial revolution when men and women create analog machines to achieve the fullest of human potential. Usually set in Victorian England during the mid- to late-1800’s or the American “Wild West” era, this genre incorporate the spirit of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells in their setting and general mood as well as the new-found relationship between man and his machine.
Steampunk has since become an aesthetic movement, sparking off subcultures that focus on visual art, comics, music, clothing, accessories and “custom mods” where modern-day m

A lot of people want to learn to draw and paint better but they just don't know where to start. You don't need an expensive art course to learn and progress, sometimes the answers are not far away. On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them. When you know what you want to improve, searching for a good tip gets even easier.

My MALE cat has adopted kittens?! o-OIts so strange! And yet so endearing. Skittles, my sweet and precious cat who I love like my own son, is acting like such a father to four kittens.My MALE cat has adopted kittens?! o-O2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you know, a neighborhood female named Twilight had kittens awhile back. When they were first born skittles seemed interested, but didn't do much. He would, however, stay around like he was on guard duty. He was protective, let Twilight on his territory, and seemed oddly...concerned. I had never heard of a male taking care of another cat's kittens.
They cannot possibly be Skittles kittens, he was fixed, although he is an outside cat. At least we were TOLD he was fixed since we got him from a shelter.
As the kittens got older and big enough, the mother has started hissing, driving them away and letting them know its time to move on. So they moved into our yard. But now...Skittles is still protecting them. o-o To the point of chasing the MOTHER off so that the kittens can come out! She keeps hissing and batting at them, but he's alw

8 Lies Told by Climate Change Deniers Debunked by Real Climate Scientists
With the news that the west Antarctic ice sheet is not only melting, but that melting is unstoppable, the climate change deniers are out in full force on the forums and the comment threads, wheeling out tired lie after tired lie, and are bellowing louder and slowing progress even more in the halls of legislation. While these deniers have a number of fall back lies, there seems to be eight perennial lies that keep cropping up.
