How to Become Popular
How to become Popular on DeviantArt
-Find an already popular artist whose style you like and is easily identifiable within the deviantArt community.
-Copy their style to the best of your ability. If you are accused of tracing/copying, deny it and come up with a lame excuse. If it persists, delete your account and create a new account. Repeat from step 1.
-AND/OR cling to a popular artist and draw their characters as often as possible. Make sure they notice your artwork by spamming their profile with links to them.
-You may also draw nothing but fanart from popular animes. The weeaboos will eat these up like candy.
-If you're not "good" at drawing, use bases. Be sure to hide it as much as possible and never credit the original creator of the base.
-Post as often as possible, even if it reduces the overall quality of your work.
-Submit your masterpieces to as many groups as you can. It doesn't matter if it belongs in the group or not.
-Pretend to be best buds with a popular artist

30 Day Character Meme.30 DAYS OF CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!30 Day Character Meme.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's a simple meme. You answer one question every day for thirty days, and by the end of it, you hopefully learn even more about your character and become a better roleplayer because of it! Trying it because I love getting to know my character.
Here's the list.
1.) Describe your character's relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?
2.) What are your characters most prominent physical features?
3.) Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don't have any, is there a reason?
4.) How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?
5.) What's your character's ranking on the Kinsey Scale?
6.) Describe your character's happiest memory.
7.) Is there one event or happening your character would like to erase from their past? Why?
8.) Day of Favorites! What's your character's favorite ice cream flavor? Color?

Meet Wan, the first AvatarFans of The Walking Dead and Legend of Korra rejoice: Steven Yeun, known to fans of the AMC horror show as Glenn, will be joining the voice cast of the Nickelodeon animated series as Wan, the very first Avatar in existence. Yeun’s character will appear in two episodes titled “Beginnings 1 & 2″ during the second season — aka Book 2: Spirits — debuting later this year.Meet Wan, the first Avatar2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The sequel to the beloved Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra debuted last April to 4.5 million viewers, and quickly became the highest-rated show on Nickelodeon. Both series are set in a fictional world where people called “benders” have special abilities that allow them to control one of the four elements (water, earth, air, and fire), but only one person — the Avatar — can control all four and bring balance to the world.
Wan’s story will take place ten thousand years before Korra’s time, and follow the teenage explorer and skilled bender as he tri

[OC CONTEST] Together Whichever Weather! (ENDED)Update: This contest has ended. I'll be updating to let you know who has won etc. asap.[OC CONTEST] Together Whichever Weather! (ENDED)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm hosting a BIG oc-contest! 8000 points+more than 20 art prizes to be given away - anyone can join!
The seasons are changing, and with it comes all sorts of friendly and ferocious weather, it can be beautiful or frightful, but always unpredictable. It's probably the most common basis for conversation globally - but that's because it affects our lives like nothing else. So that's the simple yet huge theme for this contest: Weather.
Which weather is completely and utterly up to you - it can be happy sunny beach-weather, put-on-your-boots-rainy-weather or a raging winter-blizzard. Or maybe some sort of weather phenomenon you find interesting, like the mysterious aurora borealis, fantabulous double-rainbows, golfball-size hail, devastating tornados, intense lightning-storms, whatever grabs your attention (and the judges')! Whatever you do, challenge yours

FIRST of all -- This is not a rant or even a vent. It's just a journal, just thoughts and opinions.
I think mostly regarding art theft and where, on a personal note, I stand on the subject is what I'm most thinking on lately. I've read quite a few journals and talked to a few friends about what has been happening to them, not to mention my own issues with it as of late.
To me taking something that isn't yours and claiming it without even asking is stealing. That's how I was raised and how I still view it. This notion of "They think your work is so good they take it to use, it's a form of flattery!" -- that's like saying someone stealing my car is a flattering gesture. Stealing someone's stuff isn't a form of flattery, it's actually quite the opposite.

This one is never well written... Just because other people do it doesn't make it okay. If it's against the rules I will report it. I don't care who you are or who else is doing it. If you give me examples I'll report them to. After all, if crazy people started shooting other people in the face would you start doing it too? Apparently koaumae5918 has seen "Well everyone steals! We're stealing the alphabet!" I've seen this one as well...No. No it doesn't work that way stupid.

In a year and a half I've gone from zero to over 10,000 watchers. Sounds totally crazy, even to me. (Though I'm super appreciative!)

Think With Your Brain, Not Your Gonads.I recently had a short-lived discussion with a pro-choicer on here (and don't get me wrong, I know not all pro-choicers are like this girl), but I will admit that it has been a long time since I came across such blatant obsession with sex and complete disregard for birth control or human life. In short, she admits that the human in question is a baby/child/person, and yet she places sexual pleasure and animals above it.Think With Your Brain, Not Your Gonads.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
These are her own words:
"You didn't listen to a word I just said, did you? If my "personal vendetta" was rooted in hatred, I'd be on your side, right up there with all the other people advocating that the mother must be forced into having a baby unless she is raped or her life is at stake. That's not fair. There are OTHER SITUATIONS IN WHICH THE MOTHER IS AT RISK IN OTHER WAYS. But pro-lifers disregard all the other situations and assume things are just black and white. They do not think about the mother's biographical life that she has already been living, with all
God in the Old TestamentMany non-Christians take issue with God's actions in the Old Testament. But I've noticed a pattern in their arguments. They say "God killed those people so He's evil" and say nothing else about the incident. This leads me to believe they don't know the context of what they're upset about, nor have they done the research to see the pattern of God's actions. Below, I have broken down 5 instances of God's judgment.God in the Old Testament3 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
1. The Global Flood
a. The world was full of evil people, sin, and corruption. (Gen. 6:5), (Gen. 6:1-2)
b. God warns that He will flood the world to destroy the evil (Gen. 6:13)
c. Noah preached to the people of the world for about 100 years to repent from their evil, warning them what was to come (2 Peter 2:5)
d. Only Noah's family remained loyal to God, so God's forewarned judgment falls (Gen. 7:17)
e. Conclusion: God used His messenger Noah to warn a corrupt culture to repent but they didn't even after 100 years. And we find God's mercy being displayed on the one fami

The First Amendment - Freedom of SpeechThe first Amendment of the United States constitution is first because it is the most important. It grants us the right to free speech, which is generally important to stopping oppressive regimes (and is often the first one that an oppressive regime will try to attack). Worded exactly as it is in the constitutionThe First Amendment - Freedom of Speech2 months ago in Personal More Like This
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."
That's more or less it. Let's talk about what it actually means, or is "supposed" to mean. Most of the amendments of the United States constitution were written in a way to be interpreted to any time, sometimes ones that the people who wrote them can't possibly imagine. And you shouldn't be surprised when people interpret them in... less than ethical ways. The fourteenth amendment was made after the
