So I've noticed that so many people are having such a rough time. Just being upset or going through some upsetting things, or just being down in general. And it really honestly upsets me alot: especially since I'm referring to alot of my close or not so close, friends.
I wish that there was a way for me to console or help every single one of you, because I care so much; and you and honestly nobody deserves to have negative feels.
Why am I writing all this?
Because I love you. All of you.
To be honest, I see most people as friends unless they give me reason to not.
B-but, if anyone needs an ear to listen; or in this case, eyes to read. Feel free to rant all you like here, or you could jsut comment or note me. I'm a pretty good listener. ;7;
Complete Pyramid Head Helmet TutorialIntroductionComplete Pyramid Head Helmet Tutorial8 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay everyone, here is the long awaited Pyramid Head Helmet Tutorial! Unfortunately, I do not have step by step pictures, nor do I have measurements of the actual frame or the foam-board panels, just the finished product. Also, I did not sketch out blueprints when I made the helmet, but I used pictures as references. I'll describe later how I did that. As a matter of fact, that might be more helpful to you than the actual measurements themselves. But anyways, lets get started. Use the following links as reference throughout the tutorial:

In desperate need of help *Update*Previous journal:http://klydekiss.deviantart.com/#/d57v436In desperate need of help *Update*3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you can recall I pleaded for help recently due to my horrid financial situation and I'm here to update my status for all who were concerned.
I will start with the bad news:
-I am still in the same situation and sadly I was forced to drop out of school. I absolutely tried the best I could. I've emailed staff for help, I've been in the financial office almost daily but nothing helped.
After speaking with my financial adviser, she told me to get away from my school. She said the school over charged students and was meant only for the rich, she was right. I guess I figured I deserved a higher education.
I'm not ready to downgrade though. I am giving it my all to transfer to Parsons NewSchool. Parsons is more expensive however, due to it being a non profit school, I will receive more aid. I am also eligible for a 2 year scholarship for my junior and senior year which would be
Kotobuki Shiro, MUST SEE VIDEO for visual artists!Kotobuki ShiroKotobuki Shiro, MUST SEE VIDEO for visual artists!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you may of heard me mention a really inspirational video about the artist behind the concept/promo art for the game series "Rumble Roses", well I finally found the video again!
Please watch the video here! It is in japanese, but the story and the video really transcends language barrier. It shows how he draws from beginning to end.
Why is it so inspirational? Well because Kotobuki Shiro happens to be quadraplegic, meaning his arms and legs are paralyzed -- He draws completely with his mouth, and works digitally as well. He was in a bicycle accident that put him in the hospital. While in rehabilitation he used art as a way to recover, and look where he is now!
It just really goes to remind us that anyone can draw with dedication and practice, you are not limited by some "talent", if you work hard and work often, you will get where you want to be.

Important AnnouncementPlease read this and reply carefully. The fate of this group depends on it.Important Announcement4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to give some background on the Three Rules that have made up this group since it started. I started this group after I had been on Deviant Art for a few years. I had seen many groups at that time so I decided to start my own but couldn’t think of what to do it on since there were so many. That is when I realized that there were no groups dedicated to lovely tomboys. Oh sure there were groups dedicated to specific tomboys but never tomboys in general. And I have always loved tomboys as long as I can remember.
I could never stand those girly girls that always needed someone else to save them, only cared about how they look, and were more interested in what was considered fashion. I loved the girls that didn’t mind getting their hands dirty, was right there with you when you needed them, and could always rely on them.
With it in mind to create a group to show off lovely tomboys I also had

That was all you heard though the mouths of people being dragged away from their homes and families. You, however, had accompanied the crowds. You were Jewish, and you were one of those crying people.
As you were dragged and thrown into the bus, you realized where you were going: The concentration camp!
You could see the dark, gloomy texture of the big building settling in front of you. Your (e/c) eyes widened as its figure got into view. You then walked out of the bus, and into the camp. Awaiting of what might happen next....
You saw many Nazis, obviously, they glared at all the passengers, but one Nazi stood there, staring at your face. That particular person was Ludwig. Ludwig Beilschmidt. You were given a room, not very roomy at all. The walls were grey and chipped paint was peeled off of the frames. And it was severely cold as well.
You were partnered with 3 families, so it was very cramped. And worst of all, no indoor toilet. So, you sat there,

" DO NOT URINATE IN THE ELEVATOR
- Urinate before leaving home.
- If you're coming back home, please kindly wait just a few more seconds until you are out, it will not take so long.

The best of all is that note clearly indicates who this was written TO because of the language our president used on it, so we all can know who did it, since only one of our neighborings speaks that dialect
The point is (in my opinion): Does an elevator really take that long that you can't wait a LITTLE bit more??? :iconwhywouldyoudothatplz: lol it seems some people get exasperated so easy. Dunno why but I totally imagine our president also putting chairs for the

To you that thinks its acceptable to take a picture off the Internet, any picture you find, and feel its yours, do me a favor. Take your keyboard and hit yourself with it till you don't feel it's ok any more. It's NOT ok. It's like me taking a sculpture or something you made and claiming its mine. Wouldn't feel good, would it?

One day, humon was surfing the internet.
She was just looking at her favorite pages when all of a sudden a new tab opened up.
She was confused, since she didn't click on any link whatsoever. The tab didn't show anything, just a white screen. When she tried to close the tab, nothing happened. She kept pressing the X to close it, but instead the tab turned to full size. Suddenly, the white screen of the tab turned completely black.
It wasn't only the tab screen that turned black, all the button and everything else on her screen did the same.
Even her mouse disappeared off the screen.
After a little while, she decided to turn her computer off because she simply thought it was broken.
This was a fatal mistake.
Out of nowhere, a full screen picture of :iconcaptainfanclub: appeared on the black screen.

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem
