Proud to be a Woman - Happy 8th of MarchTo be honest I rewrote this about dozen times now. It started with everything what is wrong with world today, however instead I decided to celebrate being woman and woman artists. I had a lot of chats with my oldest daughter about being woman, and she does not believe me that women are being discriminated still in todays world, so I decided to focus on positive and share amazing women artists I know about in hope to encourage others in celebrating being woman. Happy International Women's Day. I am so proud to be a woman and a mother of 3 amazing girls.Proud to be a Woman - Happy 8th of March4 months ago in Personal More Like This

Sipping tea with your Muse Only by fostering a facility with the vocabulary of your artistic medium of choice, can you begin to really free yourself to be open to being creative with it.Sipping tea with your Muse1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The size of that vocabulary is another matter, and that’s about growth, improvement and development. These are important as well, and intricately linked to creativity, in parallel (more on that in a future article). But first let’s talk simply about the genesis aspect of art.
Remember when you were in high school, doodling in the margins of your notebooks? Ballpoint pen and edges of blue-lined notebooks, with half an ear listening to the lesson of the day? There was a familiarity in that setting, and ease that you moved through when you sketched these throwaway doodles. Every once in a while you’d accidentally make one that you’d really like, and you’d save that scrap of paper with notes on American History melding into the lines of a drawing of your D&D charac

Undoubtedly one of the most prolific, innovative, and exciting artists
exhibiting their work on deviantART has to be the amazing BenHeine.
In terms of sheer creativity and the true spirit of art as human expression that knows no bounds,
he is currently with few peers. His unique visual creations have been featured in newspapers, magazines
and other publications worldwide and over the last few years his works have begun to populate art galleries
and museums from Brussels and London to Turkey, Romani

Chardon School Shooting :(Today was, by far, the scariest day of my life. I woke up with that feeling...that one that was telling me it was going to be a bad day. I should have leaned on that feeling. All I can say right now is I am thankful the students that made it alive are alive. The injured that are still breathing, their life has been changed. I will keep them in my thoughts and in my prayers.Chardon School Shooting :(3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here is my story for today...maybe I shouldn't call it a story, because it isn't.
I was sitting in the high school cafeteria -like I always do- waiting for the Auburn Career Center bus to pick my friends and I up for school. Everything was completely normal.
From the hallway, I heard a loud crack. It sounded like a balloon popping, or someone squeezing a bag of chips till it explodes. I turned to my right, and saw nothing. I heard three more loud cracks, this time they were close together. When I turned to my right again, a student, who I recognized, was standing with a gun. As he pulled the trigger, I saw fire burs

I am haunted in this holiday season by the opening lines of Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, his novel about a society 250 years ago coming apart in its seemingly irreconcilable divisions. Could it be these lines define where we have come to find ourselves today?

DA's New Logo, and Leaving DA?DA’s New LogoDA's New Logo, and Leaving DA?7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Looks like crap. I don’t really have anything else to say other than it’s absolutely shitty design work. Apparently the story is that DA had a logo designing contest, but didn’t consult their lawyers till AFTER the contest began. The lawyers advised not using any of the submissions which is why we get this new ugly shitty logo that represents NOTHING about DA other than the usual blatant disregard for community input. Shame too, cuz the art from everyone else looks INFINITELY better than what DA eventually decided to go with.
I dunno if that story is true, but it sure sounds like it could be. Please feel free to correct me in the comments below if I’m wrong.
(PS: Also the Russian studio Platzkart’s logo looks HIGHLY similar to DA’s new ugly one.)

A TRIBUTE TO REALISMA TRIBUTE TO REALISM2 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Why don't you just take a photo and a bunch of other stupid yet justified questions-
After years of being bothered by the same question , I have finally decided to write down my feelings and thoughts about this issue. And I think the timing is perfect considering I've somehow reached a stage of finding satisfaction in my own work; which will hopefully result in this journal being informative, interesting, maybe even educational, but above all stop people from being prejudice. If I had written it earlier it probably would have resulted in ranting and raging, at least to some degree.
I hope you will enjoy this read, but unless you think you can relate or learn more about some things, stop reading because this is going to be LONG
Let me start by asking you - what about your own work makes you feel like an artist? What makes any of us 'artists'? Many people imagine artists to be somewhat like mad scientists, but the

Ok that sentence made no sense. But below are a few girls that I guess I can consider as my waifus... if I have to pick any. HMM this topic started when I was talking to the Rainbros (Members of my Pokemon Rainbow group) about whether I name my Pokemon after anything, and I told them I like to have a consistent theme for each game when it comes to names. For Pokemon Black and White 2 I named my Pokemon after K-pop idols, for another Pokemon game I named my Pokemon after movie stars that I liked, and one time I gave all my Pokemon food related names. I remember for my first ever Pokemon game 1000 years ago I used to give my Pokemon dirty names (As you do), popular ones include Psyf*ck, Pikapoo, SlowpokeHer, Dicklett, Butterpee... yes I was a messed up child.

1.GOTA BE A FAN BEFORE DOING FAN ART FOR SOMETHING
Yup, I have not seen One Piece or Bleach so I will not do fan art for them, Im sure they are great anime as people has told me, but I just haven't gotten around to watch it thats all. So yes for me, I gota be a fan before doing fan art for something. Otherwise it kinda takes away wat the true meaning of what fan art is right? But yes I do know some people who draws fan art of whats popular rather than what they like, I remember one time I was walking in the artist alley and saw an artist who did an artwork of a fandom that I like, so I spoke to them about the series and realised the person has not played the game or know anything about it, but just drew it because

Ash had Gary Oak, Goku had Vegeta, Naruto had Sasuke. Do you believe that having a rival can help you improve in whatever you do? I do. I remember back in High School I got lots of praises from my classmates for being the greatest at drawing, I liked to draw in my diaries and homeworks alot Which explains why my marks were soooo FREAKIN TERRIBLE!. And there was a friend (I used the term very loosely) who would always try to find ways to make people feel like crap, this time it was no exception, he figured out what I liked and stabbed that piece of pure innocent heart with a sharp poisonous knife, he told me my drawings is poo compared to this other guy our year, I have never seen that guy's artworks before so my friend went as far as to sneak into the library storage room where everyone left their bags at, opened up the guy's bag an
