New deviantART Thumbnails - Thumb GridHello again, everyone!New deviantART Thumbnails - Thumb Grid3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Back in April we launched the new deviantART thumbnails to beta. Over the last few months we've received a great deal of feedback from the community on them. We're always working to ensure that we put out products that are best for our community, and so today we'd like to announce some new options being added to these thumbnails to give you the best browsing experience.
Very quickly, we'd like to recap what the New Thumbnails are, and the feedback we've received on them. We made the decision to change our thumbnails based on a multitude of factors. While the smaller thumbnails did their job, there's always a great deal of room for improvement as we move toward the future and look for better ways to present your art to the deviantART community, and the world.
To further this, we increased the size of the t

I was just all... "HECK YES!! FROST IS GONNA BE IN MY TOWN, AWWWWWYEEEEEEAAAAHH."
For those who haven't seen already, I am back in school. What does this mean? Well, it means that Everlasting Snow chapters are probably going to be slow in coming. I'm predicting that that won't happen and I'll still get one or two out a day because I'm a master procrastinator. That, and we're so close to the end of the fiction, so it's kind of that "you're in the home stretch" kind of feeling.
Aah, yeah. That's right. It's ending. Coming to a close. I know, I know, it's sad for me too. If it weren't for the workload that I already have from school, I wouldn't know what to do after it's over. I know that I'm really going to miss it though...all the comments and stuffs. BUT IT'S NOT OVER YET, SO WHAT AM I SAYING.
No, I'm not planning on doing a sequel. I'll probably write another story once school is out,

Gentle SnowfallAll right. Awesome story time.Gentle Snowfall3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been incredibly windy for the past couple of days (it doesn't ever snow, though ). While I was visiting my old house, I took my dog out for a walk up the hill to do his business. It was nighttime. First off, I nearly tripped and fell over what sounded and felt like a long thin tree branch. I looked back and saw nothing. Continuing onward, the wind was blowing pretty hard. It was brisk and exceptionally cold. I began to talk to Jack, knowing that he was behind all of this (as I usually do when a sudden cold wind blows or something along those lines...yeah, I talk to Jack a lot x3). The moment I uttered, "Jack Frost, it's you there, isn't it?" the wind blew so hard that I almost fell over. My dog perked his ears up, but soon went back to doing his own thing. I continued talking to Jack. Then, out of nowhere, my dog starts staring at something up the hill. He's not one to bark unless he knows it's someone/thing dangerous or threatening. Curious but ex

Why, you ask?
Because the official dA Twitter featured my fanfic!
That's right, they tweeted about Everlasting Snow, the 50th chapter!
Here's a direct link to the tweet: https://twitter.com/dA_fanart/status/299357197333327874
Just thought I'd share that with all of you. I'm freaking out, personally. I don't mean to be braggy or mean or anything. I'm just so honored. I'm seriously sitting here crying happy tears. Never in my wildest dreams...
And you know what? It's all of YOU that made this possible. I bow to you. Thank you so much for reading and all that you do. I write for the sake of writing, to perhaps add to the world of literature and to make something that people will enjoy, and it seems as though I have been successful thus far. And I have you to thank. So, once again, thank you. I LOVE YOU. :iconletmehugyouplz:

First off, the fans:
This sums up just about all my thoughts on the fans.
You insane fans need to calm the hell down. All you guys are going to earn yourselves is trolls.

You are not helping.

I'm doing pretty awesome. Wow, it's been a while since I've journal-ed. You can blame school and being overworked for that. But school's out now! YAY! Well, pretty much out. I have no more classes, but I still have to plug through finals. I'll be done by next Wednesday though, and I don't really count finals as being school, so...YAY!! School's out = more drawing and writing and stuffs. And something else, I hope...a return of a dearly loved one... *aherm* But anyway!!

I've been suffering from severe pains for a while now, but it's only happened once or twice a month, maybe. Now all of a sudden, it's happening three or four

I haven't been logged on here in nearly a year. Whoops! I promised I would be back and do more awesome stuff, but I'm afraid those promises will have to fall short. So much has happened in the past almost-year that I won't be able to tell you without writing a book, so I'll do my best to sum it all up in a few sentences that probably won't give enough detail. Oh well!

PE: Painting With A Limited Colour PaletteDigital ArtPE: Painting With A Limited Colour Palette7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Nowadays, digital art programmes give us an overwhelming amount of colours to choose from, which makes it tempting to go overboard.
Painting with a limited colour palette challenges you to think outside the box and find new, creative uses for colours. This article aims to help you with that, including tips on how to create a limited colour palette, how to approach painting with it, and an art feature.
About creating a colour palette:
In order to paint with a limited colour palette, you will first have to create said palette.
Here a few pointers for creating your own palette:
You can choose as little as two colours, but since we're talking about limited palettes, you should choose no more than five to start out with.There's a few simple tricks to ensure you get an unified colour palette, but that doesn't mean you absolutely have to use them. Your colours can be as crazy as you want. Knock yourself out.Having a mood in mind for your work will help you with pi

Ry talks about... SpiritDo you believe in G-G-G-Ghosttssss!!!? When you are in your room at night and a shadow walks pasts your window... when at the corner of your eyes you spot a dark shadow in the far end of the hallway... BOOO! Next time when you see these 'spirits' think about what you saw and use your logical mind instead of the creative one. Thats right I am telling you to turn off your creative imaginative gear for a sec and be a little bit less unrealistic. I do NOT believe the spirits people see are really spirits, my parents are really scared of ghosts and in fact most of my relatives do too and they tell me stories as well, as a kid I used to get freaked out heaps by these stories (Thanks folks!) and used to be afraid of the dark.. I once accidentally touched an electrified cord in the dark and thought a ghost hit my hand. Sometimes I would hold my pee in for hours at night just so that I didn't have to walk down the dark scary hallway for the toilet. But sometimes I would brave up because I was tRy talks about...

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

a student that is so good people keep thinking him and i are the same person, which has been causing some epic hilarity, but thats besides the point
so we got this idea we should mess with people and i should try and draw some of his characters, a fanart of the sorts, and even do the whole linework thing he does
and then i realised something dreadfull
PAINTING HAS KILLED MY DRAWING SKILLS!!!!
by this i mean i have zero patience for linework. its just alien to me. all the time i was trying in my head i was screaming: 2 NO DAMN YOU, PUT SOME LAYERS OF COLOR!!!!
i used to draw alot in th eold days, but now, that skill has eroded.
and im not talking about traditional shaded drawing, shaded is easy, i mean pure line drawing
i have trained my mind to think in volumes shadows and colors to the point where line just kind of died out

So I'm getting better. My sinuses are killing me but I have so many chapters up in this head of mine that are practically spilling out onto the page, so something tells me I'm going to be having a power publishing session today. Plus, school starts on Monday for me, so I kinda want to get a bunch of chapters out before I have a big slow-down because of school (boo).
And now onto the tag! I'm doing it because the questions are awesome and it seems like so much fun. xD
The only difference is that I'm not going to tag other people. I'll still write questions for anyone to answer if they feel like answering it. x3
1. You must post these rules.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you, and create new questions for the people you tag to answer.
3. You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal
4. Go to their pages and tell them you have tagged her/him.

Of course I understand there may be people who freak out just by seeing the word so I have taken the effort of censoring it, but if you still faint by the sight of the censored word then I highly suggest you leave the page And browse through my pretty artworks in the gallery instead. OK? All easily sensitive people left the room? Kids into bed? Good good. So right, I don't use the F word much as I don't see the vulgarness in it, to me it feels like an everyday word that shouldn't be used because some people may not like it, its just one of those things you know? Same goes to words like 'dwarfs' 'eskimos' 'black' 'bitch (As in calling a female dog)', like these words falls into the grey area and they ain't very safe to use, so some people don't use it including me, I don't throw these words around much because i
