RIP Bob HoskinsVeteran actor Bob Hoskins has died: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-27224995RIP Bob Hoskins1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The man played a whole range of characters, from Smee (Hook) to Khrushchev (Enemy at the Gates) but he'll probably be remembered (and envied by those of us with a looser grip on reality) for his role as Eddie Valiant, the LA gumshoe from Who Framed Roger Rabbit whom the badly-drawn Jessica bounced off, slunk around and serenaded.
For that, I think we'll all forgive him for Mario Bros.
Don't hit people. How hard can it be?The BBC has decided to drop Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear, following some sort of altercation between him and a producer over food being served at the end of a days shooting.Don't hit people. How hard can it be?1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Very little information has actually been released about the incident. It’s only ever been referred to as a “fracas” in the media and “a bit of a dust-up” by Clarkson’s co presenter James May.
I’m a huge fan of the show and Clarkson’s style of presenting, but if he punched a member of the crew because his food wasn’t hot then axing him is the right decision. There’s a huge difference between an unbroadcast, antiquated, school-yard rhyme (one of Clarkson’s previous “offences”) and physical violence.
Will Top Gear be the same without him? No it won’t. Will Top Gear survive his departure? Yes it will.

How to Get a Stolen Image Removed from a WebsiteThere's this wonderful thing called the DMCA - the Digital Millennium Copyright Act - which requires websites to remove content that is stolen intellectual property. This includes photos, sketches, written documents, and many other forms of digital media. Nearly all websites which host media content will have a DMCA takedown report form so you can report stolen images electronically.How to Get a Stolen Image Removed from a Website1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Most recently, a lot of folks in the Taxidermy community here have had issues with an Anti-Fur group on Facebook stealing their images illegally to use for their own bullshit agenda. Here is the form you need to have the image taken down: https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/208282075858952
There are two options you can click to report. If you want a photo removed, you will need to click the bubble for "copyright", then "continue with copyright report".

Brad and I are so proud and can't wait to start a new chapter of our lives. I'm sorry for the delay on the news. I've just had so many things on my mind after giving birth and we've been super busy! The whole family has been calling and wishing us well and congratulating us, which was very sweet
I must say, though, I can't thank everyone enough for their support. You've all been so kind and I want everyone to know how much I appreciate it! Thank you so much!
I still can't believe I'm a mother. I'm just so happy! Brad is thrilled to be a father and everything turned out perfect!
~ To my beautiful baby girls, Brad and I love you so much and we are so proud to have you as our daughters. Brad and I look forward to teaching you everything we know, and to also help and guide you two throughout life so that you both become successful. We will always be there for you. Katri

1. Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?
Hello! My name is Šárka, pronnounced Sharkah. I’m a 20 years old student of biology at Charles university in Prague. I come from the south of Czech Republic (the country with beer) , from beautiful South Moravia (the region of wine). I have a tarantula called Ungoliant and I love everything related to J.R.R.Tolkien.
2. When did you read Tolkien's books for the first time, and what impression did they leave in you?
When I was 10, I found an interesting book in a
Stop humanizing wolves...[please]Just so this is clear: This has nothing to do with the term 'anthro' or 'anthropomorphism'. This is an article talking about REAL wolves, not fantastical depictions of them or even characters. By 'humanize' I mean the actual definition of it -- "make (something) more humane or civilized." -- "give (something) a human character."Stop humanizing wolves...[please]2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Alright, now before I get started I'd just like to say a few things so that people won't jump down my ass and call me some kind of asshole that hates wolves or thinks they should all die. I love wolves. They're beautiful, intelligent, and amazing creatures. They're part of the Earth's ecosystem and they belong in the wild where they are.

Change your usernameMake a new account
Whoops, sorry. I thought deviantART had a username-change system, but it doesn't. Looks like you'll have to start over and make a new account! Transfer your faves and the people you watch, because you need a good username if you want to be taken seriously here, and making a new account is the only option for now.
Make sure not to choose the name of an anime character and a bunch of random numbers as your username (naruto12345), choose one that's easy to remember and defines your person. Because seriously, who chooses a random word and random numbers as their username?

TIPS AND ADVICEOver the last few weeks I’ve been getting lots of requests for tips and advice. So I thought instead of answering each one I will give an overall guide to what I’ve learnt over the last year using graphite. And some of the things I’m going to say may sound very obvious but I’m trying to cater for artists of all levels so just ignore the bits you already know (I apologise for how long this is).TIPS AND ADVICE1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But before I go on I must point out though, that I am no expert and this is just what I’ve found works for me so may not work for everyone. And I have only really started getting used to using graphite pencils recently, as I had not drawn for 11 years until September 2012. And so I am still learning myself and have only found out what works for me from allot of practising and trial and error. Also I am not going to go into doing skin textures as I’m still learning what works and it’s far too complicated to describe on here.

FrozenIf this movie could have a tagline, it would be "Fuck Winter."Frozen1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Except not, because this is a Disney film. Despite being gnawed up and spat out by committee very obviously, Frozen manages to hold its own and become a very solid film overall despite its numerous obvious flaws.
Anyone who does a little digging knows how much a Disney film changes from it's first idea to the final product. Frozen is based off of a fairy tale called The Snow Queen and the original concept art had it much darker and probably a few shades more intelligent than what it turned into later. It sacrificed quite a bit of the story and the plot is very bare bones, much to the chagrin of literature lovers everywhere. It's also very rushed and several things that should have been key elements (the magic trolls, the bad guy) seem like they were included last minute for no real reason and the plot could have advanced without them, or with simpler contrivances in their place. Some of the characters seem to exist only for

Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is one of my favourite games of all time, surpassed only by Morrowind, and I've been planning for a long time to put together a feature with original artwork. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since almost all Oblivion-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
Oblivion is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2006. The central plot revolves around the efforts to thwart the fanatical cult Mythic Dawn that plans to open the gates to the demonic realm of Oblivion. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are quest lines for several guilds, and many side missions. Despite being less diversified and immersive than Morrowind, the incredible amount of quality third-party add-ons add a lot of scope and replay value to the game.

I think December is my favorite month. The stores are full of wonderful things. I've been exploring the city and seeing what I can find. My only complaint so far, is that it's not designed for people who don't drive. I did buy myself a Christmas present. The neatest microwave I've ever seen. http://www.meijer.com/s/nostalgia-electrics-rmo400-retro-series-9-cu-ft-800w-microwave-oven/_/R-201699 It matches my toaster. It sure brightenes up my kitchen.
I have been a bit disappointed this year. There are a lot of Christmas movies on tv, but rarely do I find any of the classics. I hope they start showing them as we get closer to Christmas. I miss watching Santa Claus Conquers The Martains and the 1951 version of Scrooge.

While searching DeviantArt for images for the Earth Day article, I became intrigued with how trees have become not only such a central focus of our current environmental concerns, but also how they play such a central role in our art, whether as background or actual subject matter. There are so many Enchanted Forests on DeviantArt that it made me wonder if trees, so mundane and taken for granted yet at the same time so vital to life on earth and so steeped in myth, have always been the revered subjects of the world’s artists.

Hello Traditional Artists
Today was the last day of my commission contest. I'm very thankful to all who have participated for their kindness and good will. I have chosen 3 works to buy as it was my primal intention and soon I'll be contacting the authors so we can agree on the terms of purchase.
I was contacted to extend the contest period, but as you can easily understand, this is not a regular contest: I think that any of you, traditional artists reading this, who have the will to produce a piece accordingly the rules below can contact me any time to show me a WIP or a finished work. If I like the piece, I'll buy it
Also below (scroll down to the end of the article) you can find my favourite works, wonderful pieces, just like I was looking for.
For now I'll remove the references I don't want any more but I'll keep the others available until the end of January 2013, so you are welcome to use them as I'm still commissioning you!
Thank you to all
