In response to this, Anonymous launched their biggest attack ever against organizations like the MPAA, RIAA etc and took down their websites.
Since the SOPA protest was received extremely well, it'll be exciting to see what other political moves the internet can make in future.
The fascists won't be able to beat down protesters on the internet like they did with Occupy Wall Street.

To Battle The Horde
“What do we die for, if not family, friends and freedom? We have fled from a crude reality, yet fate and war chase us, shake us like winter winds bully a wooden house. So let us fight evil with bravery, oblivion with willpower, doom to our very last breath: we have risen together, and together we fall. Where but here, at the last outpost of our kingdom, can we defeat the horde?”

First of all, I wanted to remember you that I selected the winning works for the representation of a CONTRAST between a character and his environment, not for your skills to draw or photomanipulate. So, please, don't feel offended if your beautiful work hadn't be choosen . I tried to select the more creative works in my mind.
I would also tell you that I'm really happy with all these beautiful creations you did ! Many thanks for your participations, I hope you'll try to participate to the next contest .

Certainly the most creative work I've seen for this contest. Two "humanized" stars discovering a luminous town in the night. Excellent idea of contrast, really ! Congratulations f
A big black hole called: Procrastination.Procrastination is an infinite cycle that becomes bigger and bigger the longer it's there and the time wasted being sucked into it is a dark matter of nothing.A big black hole called: Procrastination.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
hahah I figured this was the most dramatic way to put it, but yeah, it's real and it sucks.
For those who don't know what it means: Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute" before the deadline.
We all suffer from procrastination. It is pretty innocent when you have it with household chores or packing your suitcase before you go on a holiday.
But it becomes a serious problem when you do it with the important things in your life. I take it you're an artist if you're reading this and the biggest aim of being an artist is to be an even better one.
As shown in previous journals there are many

Avoid getting ripped off by a client.As a freelancer most of your business takes place online, which makes it really easyAvoid getting ripped off by a client.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
for people to rip you off. How many times have we seen the following scenario's:
1- Someone offers a descent payment for your artwork but wants you to do an art-test first.
after the art-test you're being told you're not good enough. Later you find out that other people
got to do different art-test topics and also weren't good enough. The client clearly ripped people off to get free artwork.
2- Someone offers good money for your artwork. The sketch gets approved so you continue working. Right when it's done the total image suddenly becomes a great disappointment and the client ends up not paying you.
These were just 2 examples of situations that happen a lot to freelancers. There are many more like it.
How to detect if a client is a bit fishy...
Does their email address look professional? Some legit people may use their Gmail address, with their real name or nickname, those are questionabl
Haunted - contest #3This contest has ended. The winners announement can be found here.Haunted - contest #33 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
From Shakespeare, through Stocker, Poe, Lovecraft, Murnau, Wiene, Tolkien... et ceatera, et ceatera... You may find this motif in many great pieces. It doesn't actually have to mean ghosts around - somnambulism presented in Cabinet of Doctor Caligari looks haunted despite the lack of spirits. On the other hand, there are few places scarier than the Dead Marshes described in the Lord of The Rings. Or the Eel Marsh estate from the recent movie. You surely have heard some local legends and tales, talking about unhappy brides and maidens wandering around a long time after their death or about a highwayman as from one of Loreena McKennitt's ballads.
In this contest, you're supposed to refer to one of such haunted pieces. It should be inspired by or refering to a legend, a novel, a movie, an existing (or not existing any more) place, even a song lyrics. Illustrating!

There are going to be three options in this contest. A Digital/Traditional option, a Literature, and a photography option. But there will be only ONE winner overall the options. I just wanted to provide a few categories for those who are not strong in digital art and who perhaps wanted the choice of writing instead of drawing. Basically you can choose whichever section you want. And if you want to make a digital art piece and enter a poem / short story you can. All in all the sections are for you to choose from.

How to survive zombieapocalypse in 5 easy stepsCGHUB is no more. I guess most of you aren't bother but some people take it way too serious. Here are a few simple rules I follow over the years to keep my mind safe:How to survive zombieapocalypse in 5 easy steps1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. Save all the stuff you like. Now. Put it on your hard drive, burn on CD, print it out... whatever... just don't expect you'll see it online for the rest of your life. Pinterest, Evernote, Dropbox yada yada are nice but you don't own them. Use them but have a safe local vault too.
When I see cool picture I save it right away - 'right click, save as' habit goes on autopilot. I've got only 236 favourites on dA but my local dA storage has over 12,000+ images (chances are I've got your scribbles too ).
2. Organize. It's a quintessential, super important skill. Doesn't matter if you're student or busness owner. Say if you dump all your images into one folder, good luck with finding specific image later. I build a simple folder system to sort out my stuff. When I paint armor I just scan the armor refs (F

Topic 1: Am I on the right track to becoming a better artist?
Does your work from today, look closer to your initial goal than your work from last week? (this needs to be both in skill and idea.)
Good skills: Honing your technique, training you muscle memory, being more knowledgeable about your tools and art rules. With art rules I mean: Perspective, form, light, texture, composition.
Good ideas: Storytelling, characteristics, charm, emotion and design. Not just making things look polished but also convey something more, something that brings it to life and speaks to pe
