NEW DEADLINE BADASS EATING And DRINKING Contest!NEW DEADLINE: 05-04/2015 "day-month/year"NEW DEADLINE BADASS EATING And DRINKING Contest!8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Giving everyone a few more days to get a chance to finish their artworks!
Hello artists who love Badasses! :iconbadassplz:
We've got a new contest for you!
BADASS EATING AND DRINKING!
The important thing is that it's about badasses consuming food or drink in a suitably awesome way.
This contest is open to original characters and fan works alike.
There's a lot of ways to do this. Possible ingredients include...
-Food or drink that is badass in nature. Fearsome beasts that tried to eat you first, or alcoholic drinks powerful enough to melt your bones.
-A badass character consuming the food or drink. Boozing it up while standing on top of defeated foes, drinking a flaming drink. shoving an entire roast boar down his mouth.
-A badass forcing a non
InterceptedOn the outskirts of the Drake Empire, their radar would present 4 foreign, unidentified bodies, which upon jumping in the said system, headed towards a planet within drake territory. Just after them, 3 other signals appeared on the radars - these ones just "warping in" instead of the more conventional FTL drive, and catching up to them in a rather big ease. The 4 ships, bandits and pirates, had assaulted the neutral halcyon scout ships and injured a halcyon - turning the squadron of rather harmless seeming ships into a hateful, murderous force.Intercepted1 year ago in Personal More Like This
They gave chase - the 4 ships having tears in their hulls, burning, and sending mayday signals, denouncing themselves as pirates and bandits, and requesting to be taken prisoners - a move which usually would be taken if the pirates expected to be annihilated.
The 3 halcyon ships, smaller, had some battle scars, but didn't seem to take much impacts beyond that - this could be taken as many possible ideas of how it occurred, but at the end o
Garrus Hate New DA Layout - User Menu Fix AddedAs you have seen DA in their infinite wisdom have (yet again) not been listening to the members and gone off and changed the very thing that was working, convenient and familiar. What bugs me the most is the personal menu which they have shoveled to the far top of the screen, out of sight.Garrus Hate New DA Layout - User Menu Fix Added11 months ago in Personal More Like This
A vast majority of the DA users spend most of their time in that menu. Checking personal messages and notifications. They don't spend it on the front page. So why the hell would DA push the main feature into a corner of the interface? Everyone reads from left to right for crying out loud. The general though behind this seems to be!
"Here's something that don't need to be changed, so we need to change it for no other reason than to annoy"
Months of design and work DA says. But not once did they stop to ask the members if this was a good idea. And the response have been massively negative. Get a grip DA. Making decisions that goes contra to any logical t

I’m sure you’ve had a good telling off by your teachers for using colloquial language inappropriately in your writing. I’ve had essays returned with the word “too informal” scrawled along the margin or a big red exclamation mark next to a certain word, who hasn’t? What just me? Oh right… my bad!
So WHY would we use colloquial language in our writing, after years of tackling the angry red pen?
I know we’re not supposed to judge a book by its over – or a person by their accent – but it happens. You can tell us a lot about a character by the kind of language they use. Are they all gangsta, dropping hooded verbs
Desenhe meu OC!“Desenhe meu OC!” é um evento organizado pelo Artistas Brasil que serve de incentivo aos membros de divulgarem seus desenhos, OCs e de se comunicarem. Os membros vão poder encontrar OCs de outros membros e desenharem, sendo que a pessoa que tiver seu OC desenhado também fará um desenho de um OC da outra pessoa.

O que são OCS? Original Caracter é um personagem original feito pela pessoa, ou seja, não é um fanart. Existem half-OCs que são aqueles personagens originais feitos dentro de um universo já existente. Por exemplo: Pegar um Pikachu e dar características próprias para ele, personalidade e aparência. É um OC, mas é de um universo que já existe, Pokémon. OCs realmente originais não fazem parte de um universo pré-existente, a menos que esse universo seja o
What Nintendo means to me, RIP Satoru IwataI was deeply saddened when news of Satoru Iwata's passing came to light. I cried for a long time last night reading all the tributes and sad messages from fellow gamers. I didn't really expect to be hit so hard but the more I thought about what he's done for Nintendo the more it made me realise how important Nintendo was to my wellbeing and life growing up.What Nintendo means to me, RIP Satoru Iwata2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm 22 years old and I was first introduced to video games when I was 6. My first ever game was Pokemon Red on the Gameboy Colour, I watched my dad play through the game first before he gave it to me to play and those memories are very precious to me.
Since then I remember the many joyous Christmas times being a child gamer.
I was overjoyed when I got Pokemon Gold (which I was given Pokemon Silver first but I traded with my twin brother because we prefered the look of the Pokemon on the front of the box) and another Christmas where my dad bought a Gameboy Advance SP bundle pack with Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. It was the last P

Get your Art some Attention on deviantARTFive basic tips to get your Art some Attention, Appreciation & Audience on deviantARTGet your Art some Attention on deviantART4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here's some tips that may not get you a consistent spot on the front page right away, but that will definitely help getting some watchers and friends, whether you already have some, or not.
First, let me make clear that this is only about 'good' attention – if you just want, say, a certain pageview count, there are probably better ways. This article is for those who would like some people to take them serious as an artist and to actively watch them.
Also note that you needn't follow all of the tips below, but it's recommendable to follow at least 3 of them. Just one or two will not usually get you very far.
So here we go! :iconeagerpee:
Submit art regularly.
Try to find a balance between quality and quantity. Personally I think it's best to submit one or a couple of dev

And I know it may not be seen as having any place on this site but seeing as how someone has inquired advice (gods know why someone would ask me), I figured this is as good a place to address it as any other. Also, you don’t have to read if you don’t want to. I decided to make a post seeing that the person wants to remain anonymous and that I will respect their wishes. I also want to help others like us.

Abuse is abuse.
There is no gray area, no exceptions. Mental or physical. Both are hazardous to an individual and even mass health. You are a beautiful individual who deserves to be treated as one. Never let someone tell you otherwise. I know it might seem like I am another distant person who has no idea what I’m talking about, but trust me, I do.

PE: How to Make a Large EmoticonHow to Make a Large EmoticonPE: How to Make a Large Emoticon3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have been asked many times how I make my big emoticons. How I shade it, dither it, etc, so I am going to make a step by step tutorial on how I make large emoticons. Even if you already know how to, you might find something useful in this. Be aware that I am using photoshop elements 3.0, so this technique can be preformed in almost any program that has layers and custom pencil brush sizes and or a hollow and filled circle tool. If your program doesn't have layers or adjustable circles of any kind (whether it be the pencil tool or the circle tool), you should be able to get around it somehow, but if you can't figure it out, I would recommend gimp. It works on Macs, Windows, or Linux computers. You can get a free download at gimp.org.
Start by making a hollow circle. The color of it should be a really dark shade of the color you want the emote to be. I'm making a blue emote, so

I've often spend my time discussing the best way to handle commissions with clients and artist friends that I came to the conclusion that clarity and understanding is key.
I will divide the guidelines I work with based on 3 commission types.
Book covers ( or illustrations)
Reading all 3 parts will give you the full scope as a lot of it applies to one another as well.
1. Reference board.
If you as a client have very specific characteristic features all set and done for your character it can be very useful for the artist if you'd make them a reference board of art and photos that portray these things.
