Once upon a time, there was a land of vast riches and resources. All kinds of life forms inhabited it. Time passed and one species evolved enough to rule over any other – humans. Not only they learned to communicate, cooperate and survive; they also gained something curious - a soul.
For a while they believed that only they have something as precious, so they killed other life forms without remorse for their convenience, as they believed them to be inferior. But they were wrong. As soul was just a lump of life energy bound with consciousness - bound so strongly it can't return to earth without proper cleansing. But humans didn't know that. Life energy was drained from the lands and life started to die out, and so did humans.
One day a man appeared out of nowhere and taught humans about souls. He proposed a contract to them, promising to return life on earth. And the contrac

You Can Use Stamps Without Premium Membership! :DI found out on this ->You Can Use Stamps Without Premium Membership! :D4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's awesome! I'm so happy that I can actually use stamps now. I put the stamp on my profile so other Non-Premium Members can know they can use them. ^^
I can't believe that I only found out today. XD Aw, well. I'm happy I found it any way.
Anyways, How To Do It:
Click on this stamp:
Now you should be at the deviation page. Scroll down until you find "Details" (Underneath the "Featured In Groups")
You can now see there is "Link" and "Thumb". Copy "Thumb" and paste it somewhere on your profile. It should look like this but without the spaces : thumb278505973 :
Now you have a stamp!
You can do this on any stamp you want, for example: Proud Tadase Fan by snovieanime210

"Cat es una joven con ciertas peculiaridades que la sociedad no comprende, pero una noche alguien rompe la relativa armonía en la que vivía apartada del resto del mundo. Un extraño irrumpe violentamente en su vida, desgarrando el frágil velo que la escondía de una sociedad que la odia. Su vida no volverá a ser la misma."
Hace mucho tiempo ya dije que subiría una "sinopsis" (Si es que a eso se le puede llamar así XD) de mi comic Cat Eyes! Bien, ¡Ahí esta! Aunque dentro de poco, casi medio mes, salga el segundo capitulo en el tomo nº7 del fanzine Project 81, en el que esta vez la protagonista no sera nuestra chica pelirroja de orejas gatunas, si no Ravenous, el grandullón de maneras salvajes y músculos para quitar el hipo (aunque yo y la anatomía masculina aun nos estamos viendo las caras, poco a poco XD)

Since human beings harnessed the secret of fire the natural world has been seen by many
only in terms of how best it can be exploited of its abundant riches. It’s amazing now to
look upon the desert sands of the Arab lands and know that this place, the cradle of earliest
civilization, was once known as “The Fertile Crescent.” All Europe was once one great forest –
until all those trees were needed to create the naval armadas of dueling empires. Only the
Earth’s natural forces, like earthquakes, have been more destructive and wasteful than humanity.
“The Romantics” were a movement of poets, painters, philosophers and others who launched
the first Great Dissent against the idea of our Earth as being only a resource to be used up.

The basics of artistic photography.When you're just starting out in photography and have made the leap from snapping pictures of pretty things to intentionally creating artistic photographs, it can be difficult to know where to go next. Sure, there are lots of beautiful photographs out there that catch your eye but when you haven't had the experience (or spent lots of time learning the theory) to know exactly what makes those photographs beautiful it can be hard to progress by trial and error alone.The basics of artistic photography.8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
While there's no quick and easy secret to taking 'good' photographs, and there's a whole world of experimentation and education out there waiting for you to jump into, there are some aspects of artistic photography that you'll want to think about every time you pick up your camera. The techniques and camera functions detailed in this article can be used by anyone with a camera, whether that camera is a top of the range SLR or a compact digicam.

Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier.

Sé por aquí la gente sensata recomienda libros y películas, y hace críticas de ellos. Libros y películas de otra gente. Gente que se lo merece. Por eso pido perdón por este momento de "teletienda" personal
Llevo un tiempecito ya (años, muchos años) con una novela titulada "Lirio de Sangre", quizás a alguien le suene porque soy bastante pesadita con ella. El primer tomo lo terminé hará un año justito y, tras corregirlo intensivamente y mandarlo a un porrón y medio de editoriales, la mayoría no me han hecho caso y unas pocas me han dado el "no" (ya sea por considerarlo demasiado largo o por un seco e impersonal "no es lo que buscamos"). El caso es que, visto lo visto, me he envalentonado y voy a autoeditarlo.

The Capture vs. The Pose
portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

Things have changed a bit since my last entry.
Even though certain parts of my life are still a mess and sometimes I feel like thinking about it all hurts me too much I can say I found a way to be happy now.
Love found me, and life found me back, there's no real other way to explain it.
I can admit that I had been running from love for a long time, too many things going on in my life, too many things I had to cope with and had to try and get over and it took me by surprise that somebody managed to break through my shell and make me happy. So yay for that
My vow for this year was 'be happy with the little things' and I've managed to do that better than ever.
I enjoy doing my work, I'm around wonderful little children in my free time and am baking a lot for them. People have seen and noticed my sugar creations and have started requesting me to make them some.

It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.

Chasm Crossing Update#8As the story progresses, the production of Chasm Crossing is starting to overlap itself. In good news, I am able to work on CC as my senior thesis. The bad news is that since I have people and teachers looking at it, some things had to be rewritten and redone. I don't necessarily hate this process because in my opinion, it's only helping in making the story better, but it's the fact that I have bogged down to a grinding halt.Chasm Crossing Update#81 year ago in Personal More Like This
I feel bad for my VAs as they endure this process of redoing lines or scenes that have changed. I was in hopes avoiding that by having script reviewers, but there were things that were shaky in storyboard format. So I'm slightly back at the drawing board, revamping scenes and increasingly making part 1 better.
Another bit of bad news that some will love and hate. The release date of CC has an official release time. BUUUUUUUUUUTTTTTT.... that will be in the Spring of 2015. I cannot put my film up on youtube before the screening of it at my school. That'll be the fi

The Truth. I really want you guys to read this.Okay. I just want to start off by saying that I haven't been there for you guys. I really haven't. And in the past year, this group has grown for 700 members to over 1400+. That's a huge number. I'm not going to make excuses and say this and that and just give you guys a bunch of bullshit, because that's what I've been giving you. The truth is I haven't really made time for deviantART. I forgot about it, if you will. And that's not how it should be when I have a group this big. This group needs to be managed and make sure that only art pertaining to this subject and this subject only enters the group. And I know a lot of people left because that wasn't happening and posts containing spoilers were being submitted. So basically. I think I'm going to move on from this. I need someone else to be a new leader. So I would like people to comment down below with suggestions (yes, you can suggest yourself if you're good enough) for the new leader of this group.
