Types of alterWe made this list for our blog a while back to explain the types of alters to anyone who read it... mainly so that they would find working out who was who and why easier.Types of alter5 years ago in Personal More Like This
So this is how we categorise alters, but others may have different ways of doing so.
Presenters: These used to be called "the ones who don't know anything" aka the "clueless wonders".
The presenters lived daily life: went to school, graduated from college, worked, etc. They sometimes find it hard to relate to the others as they have no/little memory or experiance of the traumas, but they are just as important as the other ones as they make sure that the day to day things are done, from housework to simple things like washing and eating
Protectors: These the main parts that have helped keep a person safe from perpetrators, and make very loyal friends once their anger/pain/ilnesses/self-hatred/guilt/issues have been worked on.
* Physical protectors: Their main attitude seems to be: "Don't mess with me unless you want a

Additionally, the following comment was provided:
A member of staff has reviewed this deviation and has determined that the theme itself, or one or more details present in the scene, has made the work unacceptable for submission here.
As such this deviation has been removed in accordance with our policies and should not be resubmitted."
"Explicit Pornography"?! Aw, jeez, guys. You must have the worst collection of porn on the planet to think that was explicit.
A 90s Rochelle Swanson outing was more explicit that that pic, and that stuff got aired, uncut, on terrestrial UK TV (god bless you Channel 5, you made the young Jack jolly).
I believe that, for something to be labelled "explicit", SOMETHING must be visibly going in SOMEWHERE. Such was not the case in the offending image,
5 Career Killers“Whatever happened to that guy? The guy that drew that thing?5 Career Killers5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Comic careers are like any other career in entertainment: if you don't stay relevant and adapt to a trend, you'll eventually peak and then bottom out. But there are more things that can help end a career. Here's a list of 5 that I've been thinking about lately.
1. SOCIAL MEDIA TAKE-DOWN
The creator does something that somehow goes viral, turning his (or her) readers against him. Bad behavior at a convention, sexual harassment online, or a semi-racist Tweet made worse by bumbling attempts to correct it. Or maybe the creator gets blamed for something innocent: innocent comments taken out of context, or involvement in a controversial project that he had no say over. Whatever the case, “social media take-downs” can harm careers, leaving a permanent black mark on your career.
I imagine this one is the most common: no matter how hard you work—and no matter how much a

Well, here's your chance, because it's the grand prize in this contest.
As it is a physical object, the winner will need to be okay with giving out a mailing address.
Now, because literature is woefully under-appreciated, this is going to be a writing contest. Yes, you heard me, writing.
What I want to see is a story with that dreamcatcher in it. I don't care what genre you go for or how long or short the story is, but the dreamcatcher must be present in the story somewhere, somehow; anything from a brief mention to the crux of the entire plot.

Hotel Haven: A Final Entry [Results][11-12-11]Hotel Haven: A Final Entry [Results]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Good evening, dear guests.
Where to begin? It was so long ago when we all took a leap of faith and you threw yourselves willingly into the abyss of our lovely “Haven“. Wasn’t it so blissful when you first arrived? Blissful before we shattered it into such horrors. It was such a fantastic and intriguing transformation as we observed you all struggle to survive. You came to us as civilized people and when we helped you to break it down, what did you have? Well, that answer varies from person to person. What was fun though was to watch what you all did, to see you endure your struggles, to concur and fall.
In the end only one stands though. Although one did not fully finish, please understand that they had much bigger priorities and important situations going on and this is completely understandable and fine. With that being said, we present the winner of Hotel Haven OCT:

Starting a Webcomic - Four Words You Need to Know"Just fucking do it"Starting a Webcomic - Four Words You Need to Know2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wanna preface this by saying that this is all opinion and observation, formed from my own experiences and perspective. In fact, I think it needs to be said that I create webcomics in a bit of a vacuum...
The other day I was talking with a graphic designer friend, and he mentioned how now and then he'd get together with other graphic designers just to hang out and share stories. He also mentioned that I don't have that with fellow web-comic artists or with other freelance illustrators. At the time he said this I sort of shrugged it off, but it's true and it's a bigger deal than I first thought. Sure, I have plenty of friends that have entered comic tournaments, or with aspirations of being webcomic creators, but few to none that really produce them. At the least, none I feel I can hang out with, online or off, and go "haha yeah fans amirite?" or "oh shit _____ linked to you?! sweet!". Most importantly, webcomics can be a work-intensive unrewarding hobby at times.

Tutorials and techniquesQuite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.Tutorials and techniques4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.
How I (Finally) Got Good SkinI get lots of compliments on my skin in my photos. I got told yesterday on my latest set how nice it was. I won't ever deny it; I use photoshop to take out distracting blemishes, but for the most part, my skin is how you see it. I wanted to go into a bit more depth on how I got to this place. This journal may get a bit gross at times, just sayin'How I (Finally) Got Good Skin3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you

As an artist, your job is to immerse your viewers into a world that you have built and guide them safely through it. Artists have much in common with storytellers. Storytellers have several tricks that they use to keep their readers coming back for more. Like storytellers, artists can use similar tricks to help them produce more compelling artwork. In this article, we will explain 5 fundamental skills that every artist should master. Let's take a look!
The most important aspect of art to me personally is the composition. It sets the stage for everything else. This is your way to guide and lead the viewer to make them feel as if they are actually in your picture. If this part of the process is not created and controlled properly, everything else can and probably will fal

Species: Lava demon
Birth place: Vesuvius
Sex: Male but has organs that makes it possible for him to give birth
Eyes: Steel gray
Hair: Light gray & aubergine
Weight: 75kilos, without tail: 65kilos
Abilities: Because Wurzas race are born and live in the lava flow that's inside the earth they're almost indestructible. Wurza can also teleport at will.
Imperfections: Unlike his brethren Wurza is oddly colored, has scale like skin, numerous spikes and his mouth is wide like a snakes, but he has sewn it partly shut to appear more normal.
All and all he is not considered beautiful among his kin and so is shunned, ridiculed and abused by others of his kin. Wurza had to endure truck loads of mental abuse and humiliation but he can't be physically hurt because when the pain reseptors pick up pain and that information is send up to his brain, the brain confuses that signal to be pleasure and so if someone would hit Wurza right across the face the pleasure could

There is a special dA offer that expires on 26th December. If you give one premium membership as a gift, dA gifts a premium membership of the same value to you.
So I decided to make one of my watchers happy, and they can make their friend happy too.
I decided to give one lucky deviant a 3 month premium membership in the points equivalent.
I won't give you a premium membership directly, 'cos that would mean I would get one from dA myself.

So, that means two premium memberships, for you and your friend (:

With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren’t sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how do you respond?

My Two cents on Portfolio ReviewsYou know, I see quite a bit of portfolio on a regular basis, and even more so when I go to comic con and CTN.My Two cents on Portfolio Reviews2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time around was the same thing, I saw quite a few portfolios. Some good ones and some that miss the mark.
There were a few in particular that caught my eye.. a few extremely good ones, and a few that just didn't work, and I wanted to try and share my opinions about portfolios in general.
This is just my point of view, based on MY experience and definitely not a definitely law, rule, or "must do". Just what I noticed in many student's and young professional's portfolios.
The first thing that strikes me is how similar portfolios can be from one student to another..I can almost always tell when one student is from Art Center, San Jose State, Otis, Sheridan or any other major school. It's a good thing and a bad thing. Mainly a bad thing though
Just a few personal thoughts on portfolios since I just came back from comic con and saw a ton over there.

Mabel was supposed to kidnap Gideon so she, Dipper and her great uncle could see if Gideon knew where the books were. Mabel lured Gideon by a "boating night" Gideon was suspicious, but he came anyway because Mabel offered him that they would talk about a peace treaty.
Gideon went to the river when he saw Mabel on the boat, she wore her usual suit and headband with an amulet, but she had on a life jacket.
Gideon had on his light blue T-shirt with a navy blue vest, and his lucky pine tree hat. Gideon adjusted his life jacket and went on the boat. "So, are we here to talk or are we here to listen to the crickets chirping?" Mabel asked, rudely with her lime-green eyes glowing.
"Remember, we are only going to talk about the peace treaty, I do not want you, your brother or your friend, that merman dude to danger me or my cousin, Pacifica" Gideon said, Mabel laughed and said "don't worry, they will not be in this..."
Then Mabel was reaching for her l
