Oswald the Lucky Rabbit ears coming to DisneylandOne of the hottest giveaways at E3 and the San Diego Comic-Con this year were Oswald the Lucky Rabbit ear hats, available in limited quantities for a limited time, leaving Disney fans around the world jealous of those who managed to snag a pair or two. Fortunately today, after much fan demand, Disney has finally announced that the Oswald ears are indeed headed to the theme parks.Oswald the Lucky Rabbit ears coming to Disneyland2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A Disney Parks version of the previous hats, which were given out in promotion of the upcoming “Epic Mickey 2″ video game, will be hitting store shelves at Walt Disney World and Disneyland in “late October/early November.” They’ll have a different logo than the promotional versions, minus the “Epic Mickey” design, instead featuring text reading “Oswald the Lucky Rabbit” in a traditional Disney style.

Check out these Monstersonas!
I tried to feature them all, but I didn't tell everyone to comment here with submissions, so it's possible I missed some

So my art's been stolen and sold again.../update/update: So....I contacted my relatives and my uncle is in the police force..he told me that unless I registered a copyright with the picture that was stolen before it was stolen, I would have a case in court. or else there would be nothing i could do and I would lose for sure if i tried to take it to court hahaha.....plus he said that this happens everywhere in China and if I didn't register a copyright to it in China, Chinese courts basically consider it public property and anyone would be able to use it....So my art's been stolen and sold again.../update/2 years ago in Personal More Like This

PART_2 ! General
So... this is the first part in featuring some extremely useful tutorials which can be found on DA (and some from off-site as well). This one isn't limited on digital art only, but the rest will be. I wanted to post everything in one journal, but theres 200 thumbnail limit, sooo yeah I decided to divide everything in following categories: sketching/referencing/anatomy etc, General, blending, steps, color, perspective/Composition/value, Walkthrough, nose, hair, skin, photoshop/wacom, brushes, eyes, lips, textures, ears, fabric/clothes, environment, misc (how to paint water, fire, rocks, rain, clouds, pearls etc. ). This one is about Sketching/referencing/anatomy etc.. In every journal I will also include some interesting videos that I think you should check out And, if you know about some tutorials that can be helpful to other artists, note me, thank you :heart

Don't forget to look backMany people say that looking back is a bad thing to do, because it makes you dwell on the past and is getting you nowhere.Don't forget to look back11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I beg to differ! Because I think it doesn't hurt to look back on what you already achieved, every once in a while.
In contrary; it can be a great motivation.
I came to DeviantArt, almost 7 years ago, with close to no expectations.
To provide you a bit of a background; As a kid, I used to show my drawings to all the people around me (to the level of sheer annoyance). And in the early years of the internet, I posted my writings and drawings on several Dutch forums, where I got quite the feedback on it. But as social media gradually took over the internet, and the small forums I used to reside on died a slow death, I realized the stage of getting feedback there would soon be over for me.
DeviantArt was in that sense the next place to move to. A community that wasn't killed by the influence of social media. But it was a hard place to move to.

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I was going to tell you all about Ohio and all the bad things that happened, but I swear to god I can't remember a damn thing! This is the first time I've repressed something! Should I be worried?
Okay, so we had to take a bus up to Ohio. 12 hour bus ride. I wrote half of the next chapter of Fever on the way up, and I finish it last night on the way back. On the ride up, the bus broke down TWICE! And THEN we got hit by a tornado! And when we finally got there, the power was out at the hotel!!! Then the next day the bus had a flat tire so we had to pile into a van a quarter the size of the bus. Some other bad stuff happened like the grandma of one of the girls falling and busting her head open on the sidewalk. But good news, I got new earrings and headphones. But then on the third day we were there, I was walking with my headphones around my neck and some guy was walking the other way with a tripod sticking out of his backpack, and it snagged my headphones

What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?
