Mankind Goes to MarsMankind Goes to Mars5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I feel entirely like I am in a dream, or like I have just finished a science-fiction novel
and have been daydreaming ever since. But no... this is the real deal.
I have always wondered when the human race would even consider planting
a foot or two on Mars' surface, but it seems closer than ever, and the "possible" mission
seems like a hoax or a part of a good book. Science fiction is once again
becoming science fact.
You only need to search Google to find article after article on the subject.
Apart from any concerns I have (and there are plenty) I am nearly jumping
on and off the walls in excitement that this "fictional" idea is finally bringing itself
to life. I would have never guessed any manned Mars mission
and permanent settlement there
could have happened so early. My only hope is that if it happens, it's a success. However,
I am also not looking to this project in complete optimism. I won't cover
them right now, but t

Sc-Fi WebcomicsHello sci-fi-future fanatics (and moderates)!Sc-Fi Webcomics1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Show of hands, who of us reads webcomics, especially science fiction ones? Yes, that is what I thought
I thought we would start a list of webcomics we read that are science fiction in genre. The list will be short at first, but as it grows, I will try and break it down into subgenres! So start posting away in the comments links to your selection of sci-fi webcomics. Include a brief summary of what it is about and try to categorize it in a sub-genre. For ideas of what subgenres it might fall under, check out this neat list.
If you have any questions on what counts, feel free to message your admins with questions: :iconnotagoddess: :iconcreativelycliche: :iconmycrimsonheart:

Using HTML on deviantARTUsing HTML on deviantART4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking.
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place?
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

We see some wonderful art come through this group, and so every month we feature some of the work that we, your admins, think is especially worthy of your attention. We will post a feature journal like this one every month to showcase this group's artistic talent. Selected works will be given further recognition by being placed in the Featured folder.
Here are our picks for September:

Star Trek Book Review (Need Help Finding More!)Okay, two big things--one rather unrelated announcement, I convinced my mother that we should get a PlayStation (since it will double as a Blu-Ray player for her too)!! Now I'll finally get to play Journey and some other games like that! Secondly, the main subject of this journal--I finally finished reading the Star Trek novel I got earlier this year, "Foul Deeds Will Rise" by Greg Cox. I loved it!! Now I'm really wishing there were more like it that I could buy and read! However, I'm a little (*cough*ormaybealot*cough*) picky about subject matter, and that's one of the reasons I really enjoyed this book--it fit most all of my "requirements." If any of my friends, followers, or just any fellow Trekkies who find this journal, would happen to know of any other Star Trek novels that fit the paremeters of what I'm about to say, I'd really really appreciate you telling me in some comments here!

Devious Journal Entryas much as I still agree with my last journal, I got tired of it sitting on the front page. So anyways, I'm still working on stuff--which, I know, I know. I'm still at my usual slow pace even though this should be 'so much faster'... Which it is, I'm just working on something a little bigger right now, should be out by the end of November at the absolute worst. In other news, college is... well. Suffice to say it is an extremely extroverted place for someone who is so extremely introverted, like myself. Studio takes up far more of my time than I would like (most of you probably don't know I'm a design major); even though this weekend is at a lull, we're still juggling about 3-4 projects as we approach finals. Oddly enough, I'm debating changing my major to sociology, of all things. Hopefully everything's going well for you all!~Devious Journal Entry9 months ago in Personal More Like This

Listen to music, air-drum (SO cool ), draw, read, write, read my writing (sometimes a challenge , but I've been complimented on my handwriting being unique before), space out on the computer, and waste (well, I really wouldn't call it WASTING) time on DA doing very little to a lot.

Projects Feature applicationsSince I'm currently at a lack of time this week (and maybe next week too) I figured that this weeks project feature will be more of a chance for you guys to help me out and prepare some features for the future. Since I can't go through every single project.Projects Feature applications1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So what will you do? Well I took inspiration from our founder for this. If you want your project featured just will in this in a comment:
Artwork: (then post 3 or more links, or thumbnails if you have premium, of some of your best artwork)
This should make it a lot easier for all admins to make feature journals in the future. And if you have already been featured? No worry, you can fill in this anyway as a promotion for your project. ;D
I will also take the chance to gather opinions about these features. Would you guys like us to do them more often or maybe update them less often? Maybe you have suggestions to something that could be added to them? All forms of opinions and suggestions are welcome.

And by then, I'll probably have completed more extra art to go into the book as well. ^_^
