RIP Bob HoskinsVeteran actor Bob Hoskins has died: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-27224995RIP Bob Hoskins8 months 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.

A line that is all I can hear when I look at the recently released photo of Ben Afflicted as he will be seen in Superman 2: The Quest for More Money.
I'm not gonna refer to him as "Batman" when discussing that movie. He's Ben Affleck. It's Superman Vs Ben Affleck, now.
(Edit: My problem isn't the costume. The costume is ace. It's the person wearing it.)
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".
On the next page, click "I found content which I believe violates my copyright".

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]1 year ago in Personal More Like This

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.

Alright everyone! You wanna know how to become popular on deviantART? Then follow these easy steps and you'll reach popularity in no time!
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?
Step 2: Start making art

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.

Remember this: The Nazis started by burning books, ACTA/PIPA/SOPA started by burning websites. Megaupload was the first, it will not be the last. When the masses no logner have information, they will be easy prey for the politicians to mould and shape to their will.
Wikipedia has so much copyrighted but not authorized material that its, by my estimate, 15 million web pages will become victims of ACTA in short order if laws supporting the ACTA treaty, signed secretly on October 1, 2011, are passed. That is equal to the number of Holocaust deaths of all groups, not just Jews. It is a bastion of modern knowledge, and let's face it, knowledge is power, they take our knowledge away, they take our power away, where does our power go? To them, of course. Websites may not be equal to human lives, but to us, they are negligible compared to l

In case you were wondering what the deal is with why certain cases of 'theft' aren't taken seriously. Pretty much sums it all up with evidence.
Also, most of us know that realitysquared isn't exactly on everyone's 'top 10' list of admins on the internet... Most of the people who have dealt with that particular admin seem to always get the short end of the stick in most cases. Even I am not too fond of them... Just sayin'.
The short story: The reason why 90% of the reports for theft aren't really fixed is because apparently "alterations, edits, traces, and references are becoming regarded as acceptable by dA" -- meaning if someone does any of these things your report will probably be partially ignored if not completely.
Your best bet would be to contact the person directly through a note and ask them to rem

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!

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

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.

Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature2 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.
