DEEP THOUGHTS OF AN INSOMNIACSo, as I am getting no inspiration to write, I've been looking up AMVs instead! WHOOP!DEEP THOUGHTS OF AN INSOMNIAC4 months ago in Personal More Like This

As much as I love writing fanfiction and playing around with characters and all that good stuff, let's not forget the true nature of "Attack on Titan."
With all headcanons, theories, and ships aside, what's this all about really?
True, it's got them supernatural beasts in it. But, it perfectly describes the nature of WAR. The grueling, bloody deaths. The soldiers left behind, who watched their comrades die, wishing so much that it was them instead, that they could die along side them. The families waiting behind, wondering if their loved ones
How To Write Good SexSo, this was a journal request by a friend that wishes to remain anonymous, but nonetheless I will do it.How To Write Good Sex8 months ago in Personal More Like This
We've all read them, the poorly written "He shoved his 15 inch dick into her tight pussy" sort of lemons/smut/nsfw writing. What gives me any right to speak about sex? Let's just say, I've gotten some in life experience to help me out with my writing. You can't use porn necessarily as a good reference because trust me, when you have sex for a living you acquire more skill then the average person. Sex and porn are two completely separate fields.
First things first, blatant heterosexual sex facts:
It's sweaty, there are noises of skin on skin contact, and it's almost always a little awkward.There is little to no kissing if there aren't romantic feeling between you and your partner.Sorry to burst your bubble, but most dirty talk happens before or during foreplay, not during the actual intercourse.Depending on how fast/sloppy he's going, it'll probably fall out a few times, just
More HeadcanonsI really love thinking of new headcanons, and decided to make a list of some.More Headcanons7 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Whenever Christa doesn't like someone she secretly plans a deliberate murder in her head, but still acts nice to them.
2. When Sasha and Connie tell dark, disturbing, and gory stories Ymir tries to act tough but in reality is secretly screaming. And Christa can sit through it with a straight face, even at the darkest parts. She secretly like those parts the best.
3. The guys once convinced Armin to sneak into the girl's room, and he did, with some of the girls thinking he was one of them.
4. When Jean laughs really hard it sounds like a horse neighing.
5. When Christa giggles she secretly wants to murder everything.
6. Levi loves Christmas time because he can show off his limited edition holiday hand sanitizers to Erwin.
7. Erwin was socially awkward when he was a kid and was made fun of.
8. Mikasa has a body pillow of Eren.
9. Eren is super oblivious when it comes to love. Like, he could literally get hit
How my sister got converted to ChristianityDisclaimer: This is not to be offensive to any religions. I think it's just a hilarious story that might give yall a good laugh.How my sister got converted to Christianity6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So when my sister was 16, she was working in a hospital doing research. One day she saw the church in the hospital and went a little closer cuz she liked the architecture. When she peeked inside, the pastor came up behind her and asked if she wanted to come to prayer. And so my sister was trying to be polite and didn't wanna say no straight up and instead asked, "what time is it?"
And then he asks her about what her religion is and she says "im hindu" and then he proceeds to tell her why christianity is better than hinduism and why she's "lost." So as he's giving my sister this lecture, all of a sudden he grabs my sister's hand and asks if she wants to say a prayer with him. And out of politeness once again, my sister says, "okay."
And then it's like a friggin 5 minute long prayer, and at the end, the prayer goes something like, "I accept Jesus Christ a
Know your Basics - Colour Theory (the manip way)Most of us have heard about Colour Theory - be it in school or on dA or as a term thrown about by someone somewhere. But what exactly is it? And how do you use it? This is what this article is striving to explain especially in regards to photomanipulation.Know your Basics - Colour Theory (the manip way)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Technical Part
Thankfully, there's tons of reading material about colour theory. Starting with the wikipedia article on the subject (which seems rather dry and boring to be honest) and ranging to tutorials written by deviants for their fellow artists. Those are the ones I'd like to recommend to you to get started in colour theory:
Still too dry and technical?
Okay, let me put it this way: the use of colours in your artwork can determine its mood and atmosphere. If you do it well, it can draw in the viewer and make them see what you want them to see by putting emphasis on certain parts. Colour theory gives you a way to know in

Can someone explain "renders" to me?I've been bumping into this more an more so I decided to share my RAEG.Can someone explain "renders" to me?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So there is this group of people on dA who take some already existing art and cut out the backgrounds. That's all. They find some artwork, usually anime fanart, cut the background out, add their own watermark and BAM post it to their galleries as a free to use stocks without the permission of the original authors.
What's most infuriating there is almost always a disclaimer such as this one :
Oi, dumbfucks! Yes I'm talking to you. Why should anyone credit you for something that you did not create. You've contributed nothing. You've cut the background out, something that in most cases, can be done basically automatically by a computer program with a little to no human assistance.
The whole dA's category for stock renders is flooded with this shit --> http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/stockart/3drenders/
I'm sorry but I was under the impression that a render is a 2d image generated from a 3d
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 - Perspective3 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

Anatomy booksI'm frequently asked how I learned to draw and the answer is very simple - a large part of my knowledge is self taught from books. That's why I thought it would be a good idea to share some titles I owned or came across and used them through the years. Hopefully someone will find this list useful :3Anatomy books2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Books that are awesome:
"Anatomy for the Artist" by Sarah Simblet
"The Artist's Guide to Animal Anatomy" by Bammes Gottfried
Books that are good:
" Drawing the Head and Hands" by Andrew Loomis
"Figure Drawing for all it's Worth" also by Andrew Loomis
Books that are ok but from the time perspective I do not recommend them:
"How to Draw Heads and Portraits" by Jose M. Parramon
"Human Figure" by Jose M. Parramon
Books that are pure unrefined shit and should be burned on sight:
Anything from Christopher Hart
