The erasure of human history.Let me tell you a little bit about the House of Wisdom.The erasure of human history.2 months ago in Personal More Like This
It was founded in the 8th century, eventually becoming based in Baghdad, and was a major intellectual centre during the Islamic Golden Age. Scholars there made it their business to collect as much information as they could, from all corners of the known world. They would collect books and texts and return them home for translation. It made the people of the Islamic world among the most culturally advanced on the planet.
They constructed astronomical observatories, they forwarded the science of medicine, mathematics, chemistry, zoology, geography and cartography. They drew upon the work of both those who had come before, and their contemporaries, and then advanced it. Many inventions from the Islamic Golden Age have had a legacy that lasts up until this very day:
So, what happened? If the House of Wisdom was such a fountain of knowledge a

Tracing gets you nowhere.I remember when I was a kid, I'd record Saturday morning cartoons, play them back, pause the image, put a piece of paper over the screen and trace my favourite characters.Tracing gets you nowhere.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now this was really hard in the VHS era, because a paused image on a VHS is usually either broken up or shakes so much that you’ll have some kind of fit if you look at it too long, it depended on how cheap and sh*tty your machine was.
But I worked really hard at it, man. I spent ages getting the linework just right, I was so careful, and when I peeled the page from the static cling of the bulbous, cathode ray tube screen, the character looked exactly right on the page. And you wanna know what I took away from that endeavour? What all that effort taught me?
Jack f**king sh*t.
You don’t pick up or develop any skills by tracing. You don’t devise and perfect your own methods by tracing. You do not progress as an artist by tracing. All you get is a loss of credibility, especially in this day and age, bec

i know what some of you may think here, "well, my skill level isn't going to win me anything here"
my friend, that is not the case in this event. ALL entries will be have the same amount of chance, the final winner is not based on how well the drawing or writing is done. the winner will be RANDOM. you are asked to do your best because you owe it to yourself for a good piece of work. The final piece will remain your own property, im just trying to get some activities going here. XD
you need to do one of the following to quality as an entry.
1. a drawing of a lamia in any media (traditional, digital, photo-manip, also welcome)
2. a short story involving a lamia. preferably no longer than 1 page.
there are a few versions of the lamia monster, what i am looking for is the one that is top half human, and lower half snake. now most of these are portrayed as female, but if you are up to it, feel free to make a male one.
also regarding the hair, you are free to make it snake hair or norma

My lovely watchers : Part VIIhello everyone!My lovely watchers : Part VII2 years ago in Personal More Like This
is it kind of silly I couldn't wait for the new year to begin so I could make this seventh installment of this journal series?
but really: my art had been on a bit of a hiatus (due to architorture school) and it is very personal to me; it often feels like parts of my soul skinned and strung out for any vultures to potentially pick at. and I felt quite a lot rusty trying to get back into photography and drawing and everything this past year. so the fact that you guys have shown these pieces of me love I couldn't fathom is......
I want us all to frolic happily in sunny fields (with vitamin-D-rich rays that are joyously cancer-free) and have hugs and ice cream and fun and make dark, creepy, happy art together!!
but I haven't figured out how to achieve this yet, so I hope you will enjoy this feature of the lovely people who had a stroke of insanity and decided to follow my gallery this past year. it was such an awesome journey through you

Vor dem Tor
Vom Eise befreit sind Strom und Bäche Durch des Frühlings holden, belebenden Blick,
Im Tale grünet Hoffnungsglück;
Der alte Winter, in seiner Schwäche, Zog sich in rauhe Berge zurück.
Von dort her sendet er, fliehend, nur Ohnmächtige Schauer körnigen Eises
In Streifen über die grünende Flur.
Aber die Sonne duldet kein Weißes, Überall regt sich Bildung und Streben,
Alles will sie mit Farben beleben;
Doch an Blumen fehlts im Revier, Sie nimmt geputzte Menschen dafür.

Photography Quotes"To photograph people is to violate them, by seeing them as they never see themselves, by having knowledge of them that they can never have; it turns people into objects that can be symbolically possessed."Photography Quotes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
― Susan Sontag, On Photography
"I would never understand photography, the sneaky, murderous taxidermy of it. "
― Lorrie Moore, Anagrams
"There is in fact something obscene and sinister about photography, a desire to imprison, to incorporate, a sexual intensity of pursuit."
― William S. Burroughs
"When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence."
― Ansel Adams
"You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved."
― Ansel Adams
"All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person's (or thing's) mortality,

When in the springtime of the year
When the trees are crowned with leaves
When the ash and oak, and the birch and yew
Are dressed in ribbons fair
When owls call the breathless moon
In the blue veil of the night
The shadows of the trees appear
Amidst the lantern light
We've been rambling all the night
And some time of this day
Now returning back again
We bring a garland gay
Who will go down to those shady groves
And summon the shadows there
And tie a ribbon on those sheltering arms
In the springtime of the year

Magazyny Pulp i Weird Fiction wypromowały na przestrzeni lat wiele słynnych kobiecych bohaterek, bezkompromisowych heroin, których niezwykłe przygody opisywano w książkach i pokazywano na kartach znakomitych komiksów. „Coś na Progu", jedyny magazyn Weird Fiction w Polsce także chce wykreować postać prawdziwej heroiny, której przygody będą elektryzowały zarówno miłośników literatury jak i dobrego komiksu. Projekt Tequila jest próbą realizacji tych zamierzeń.
Dlaczego chcemy się tym zająć teraz? No cóż – pracujemy nad Tequilą już od dawna, a chcemy ją przedstawić światu właśnie teraz z kilku powodów. Po pierwsze wiecie już mniej więcej na co nas stać i jak realizujemy nasze projekty. Po drugie, Wydawni

What is art?There's a lot of deviations on the front page that I check out just so I can read the comments.What is art?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of users seem to think they can define what is art and what isn't, and this never fails to infuriate me.
Have these people ever been to any art galleries? A lot of popular modern art looks like it's been drawn by 5 year olds in 5 minutes, while classical art all looks exactly the same. Maybe they should go visit some museums and start shouting "not art, herp derp" until they get thrown out.
If stuff you don't like makes the front page, it means there's an audience for that sort of stuff, in which case you should be blaming DeviantArt's user base rather than insulting the artists. Funnily enough, unoriginal Pokemon and Pony crap doesn't get as much hate as a lot of nude stuff. I wonder why. (*coughpersonalinsecuritiescough*)
Wikipedia's definition of art is: "Art is the product or process of deliberately arranging items (often with symbolic significance) in a way that influences and aff
