The colours live between black and white,
In a land that we know best by sight.
But knowing best isnt everything,
For colours dance and colours sing.
And colours laugh and colours cry,
Turn off the light and colours die.
And they make you feel every feeling there is

because your boss is a jerk or because you wanted to dedicate your time to something you're truly passionate about? That's the inspiration behind our newest project.
DeviantART has teamed up with a stellar production crew, some very talented actors, and some awesome deviants to create a series of short videos that we all wish could happen IRL. Watch above as our overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated employees quit work and show their bosses who they really are!
Not long ago, deviantWEAR reached out to the community asking deviants to create images for a new deviantART video.

I will be doing less commission this year, and it's recently closed.
I won't be quitting drawing though. It's just hard to organize the commission time as I am working now.
So, art-trade would be a nice idea. I don't know when I'll be free to do that, therefore, I'll just leave this journal open for anyone interested to sign up, and I'll be contacting you back when I'm free and interested to do trade with you.
*** DO NOT SEND ME NOTES. Please reply on this journal only.
*** I CAN'T choose everyone. As I said, I'll be contacting you back ONLY when I'm free and interested. If I never contact you back, that doesn't mean your art is bad, but choosing someone to do art-trade with is a tough choice. There might be 10 trader out there but I'm only free to trade with one or so.
*** I CAN'T contact you back right away. It might be
6th AnniversaryCyril U. Winter,6th Anniversary2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I met you today 7 years ago and it was love at first sight; married you on the same day 6 years ago and have never once regretted it because I'm still just as in love. If anything, I love you now more than I ever have before and that is a source of great comfort in my life.
You keep me stable and grounded and are my shelter in the worst of times. I need you in my life but more than that, I WANT you in my life because you make everything complete. You really are the sun and the moon in my sky, cliches be damned.
Thank you for tolerating my crazy, curing my sad and always being there when I need you the most. I look forward to growing old with you and having a million cat children and an unpredictable life full of adventure.
So, bravely into the future we go skipping and holding hands all the way.
Happy 6th anniversary.

Wing and Ever After HighOK first many Monster High fans would have most likely heard of the new spin off called 'Ever After High'. Well remember the Monster High school story and the upcoming princess school story :iconbubblemomoko15: is doing and the idea my friend :iconromance-bunny: is doing with her school choice I thought it would be fun to have Wing go to Ever After High. Why: The fact that some of the characters appear to be characters who will try to change their fate. Anyways there's not much details now since there's only three vidoes up for the series but here's what I have so far.Wing and Ever After High3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Hello hello all my lovelies!
Pixiv fantasia 7's teaser picture/information just got uploaded today by arohaJ, so to calm down myself I'm writing up this journal to promote and link some useful translation/resources for the ones who wants to join, but language barrier is holding them back!
*note* You NEED a pixiv account to join, also works uploaded to sites outside pixiv won't be counted in the "project".
Okay, so you might be wondering "What is this...pixiv fantasia thing?"
-Pixiv Fantasia is a user-run fantasy-themed project organised on pixiv that happens yearly. The project is usually shortened to PixFan in the fanmade English translations since the Japanese shortened name is ピクファン (pikufan).

Know your Basics - PerspectivePerspective comes in different forms, the most obvious & basic of which is the use of the word in relation to the appearance of relative orientation in a three dimensional space. At first, it may seem irrelevant to photomanipulators, (because, hey, the photographs already are perspectively sound,) but putting more than one photograph in context requires that you learn to see what makes sense and what doesn't.Know your Basics - Perspective4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Technical Stuff
Perspective (from Latin perspicere, to see through) in the graphic arts, such as drawing, is an approximate representation, on a flat surface (such as paper), of an image as it is seen by the eye. The two most characteristic features of perspective are that objects are drawn:
Smaller as their distance from the observer increasesForeshortened: the size of an object's dimensions along the line of
sight are relatively shorter than dimensions acro

Something a little different...I'd like to break from my usual jokes and shenanigans for a moment to talk about something that has really been hurting me lately.Something a little different...5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you may have heard or read about the recent string of suicides of gay Americans. Young people are killing themselves because of the verbal and physical abuse of others, just because of their sexual orientation. Why is this issue hitting so close to home for me, you ask?
Because, as a Christian, I feel like many people in my own religion have been judging others when it isn't even their place to do so.
There are many good, genuinely spiritual people out there, don't get me wrong. However, most of what we see in the media today, unfortunately, is those who lash out "in the name of God," trying to tell people they'll burn in hell for this and that, using fear to try and change others, all while completely misinterpreting what our own religion is all about.
The God I know loves everyone, without exception.
Yet I feel there are many Christians out there
