Reposting art on Tumblr and other sitesLike most tumblr artists, I have a huge issue with reposting art. Reposting, if you don’t already know, means just uploading the image from your own dash and making it into a new post, making your blog the source of the post. This is not acceptable in any way! Just recently I’ve had so many instances where people just take my art in general or WYDPAW (Walking your dog in a post-apocalyptic world) images and repost them.Reposting art on Tumblr and other sites2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Why is this harmful? It’s because you are directly impacting the traffic the owner of said content, and I am especially upset in the case of WYDPAW because I want all the sources to direct back to the actual graphic novel so people can follow! Like most creators of online comics or graphic novels, I put a lot of effort into this thing I’m working on and want it to have as much exposure as possible through my own original source. It doesn’t make it any more justified or legal if you add credit in the tags or
Depthcore XLIII - "TIME"The Depthcore Collective is proud to release it's 43rd themed chapter exhibition, "TIME". As we near our 10th anniversary, this seems to be an appropriate subject for us as a collective to reflect upon. Ten years have passed by, and the students and teenagers who once populated the group are gone, replaced by full time freelance artists, independent small-business owners and focussed creative professionals. Finding the time (oh, the puns are endless with this theme) to create these Chapters has become increasingly difficult.Depthcore XLIII - "TIME"3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Look, at the end of the day, this site provides a service. You can choose to pay for it, or you can choose to not pay for it. It works either way. If you really don't like it, not only should you not pay for it, but don't use it. No one is forcing you to.
It seems like a lot of people seem to think that being a member of this site gives them ownership of it. It doesn't. Be grateful it exists. Be happy that it is (now) profitable. For a long time it wasn't. The people who work on it deserve to make some money - they work hard.
If you don't agree with any of this, I think you're lacking in perspective. There's nothing keeping you here if you don't want to be. I think DA does a great job of listening to a vast community and trying to make changes to please it's members. It can't be incredibly dynamic and flexible to accomodate e

Cosplay : You Aren't AloneSometimes, life gets in the way and cosplay ends up on the backburner.Cosplay : You Aren't Alone3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Then along comes an idea or two that REALLY kickstarts the cosplay inspiration once again!
I've been so busy of late that, for the past few months, cosplay just didn't appeal to me at all... until recently. With our Left 4 Dead group coming up, as well as more X-Men costumes for One-Sky-One-Destiny and I to make, my drive for cosplay has taken a HUGE upturn! Hell, Jenn and I were sat in my garden in semi-darkness last night as I spray-painted guns and sanded down chainsaw parts XD
I love it when that drive comes back. I feel like I can do anything. HURR.
I love that feeling. Not once has it bothered me that most of my peers are out drinking while I'm sewing or gaming. When I was a teen, I was... something of a rebel, and was very much the stereotype of my age group in regards to going out and getting wasted at every opportunity. When I got into cosplay and stopped all that, I think it came as something o

A Mystical and Magical FeatureContinuing to show my appreciation for the talented deviants here, I took my favorites from my Mystical and Magical collection to compose this illustrious art feature for all to see. The fantasy genre has long been a lucrative outlet for budding artists to show off their imaginative talents. DeviantArt is no exception to this, as the majority of creative artwork here is dedicated to personalized dreams, fantasy worlds, custom made creatures, rogue bards, lone warriors, dragons, Elves, Angels, Demons, Tolkien/Rowling/Martin/etc fanart and every thing in between. I myself have worked around this idiom from time to time, treasuring the power of fantasy in the only ways we know how: Reading, writing and creating our own worlds.A Mystical and Magical Feature1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Medium - Tilt-shift effect on Photoshop.Hello, I'm back with tutorials, and for the first time it's about edition on Photoshop. The objective will be making a miniature looking picture (tilt-shift). I'd say the perfect photos for this effect are those taken from heights, like on top of a building or on top of a mountain or something similar. Nevertheless, you can experiment with other kids of pictures and then tell me or show me the results. I'm always interested on knowing more.Medium - Tilt-shift effect on Photoshop.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For this tutorial, I've chosen an archive photo from Paris, taken on top of the Arc de Triomphe, and showing La Défense in the background:
And after some basic edition on Lightroom 3.4 I get this:
I'll explain now how ot get the tilt-shift edition step by step:
1st - We open the picture on Photoshop, and we turn on the "fast mask" by clicking here:
2nd - With pencils at 2500 and strenght at 0%, we paint the area that we want to look unfocused to make the tilt-shift.
3rd - We turn off the fast mask mode, and deselect and invert the selection:

My deviantART StoryHello my friends,My deviantART Story6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I am too late as usual, but I still want to take the opportunity to jump on the bandwagon and congratulate deviantART on its 14th birthday!
8 out of 14 years I have been here myself and it is save to say that dA is one of the main reasons I turned into an art addict 8 years ago. It has been an inspiring trip with plenty of new trends over the years, good and bad, but also sometimes infuriating because of the regular dArama coming up every now and then. But all of this just made it all the more interesting - even today dA is the only website that I still update regularly.
In this journal I would like to share a few mementos of my own story and the artists that inspired me the most during that time.
This is the very first piece I submitted to my deviantART gallery:
Obviously I didn't know the first thing about proper stock crediting or stock policies in general back then (something that is valued a lot on this site and maybe even th

In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al

She's produced fashion editorials for magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, Elle, and L'Officiel, and her amazingly beautiful photography deviations rank as some of the most viewed pieces on deviantART.

Too SoonIn one of my recent comics I casually mentioned the shooting at The Dark Knight Rises premiere in Colorado. The comic wasn't about the shooting, nor was it making light of the shooting. However, some people weren't able to see past that and felt it was offensive and in poor taste.Too Soon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am really sorry that my comic offended anyone. It was never meant to trivialize the deaths of the victims of that event, nor was it trying to make fun of them. I was never suggesting or inferring that you should ignore the tragic event, nor trying to be dismissive of the event. I wasn't saying you shouldn't feel empathy, or even sadness over the event. And I especially wasn't trying to paint myself as being uncaring towards the victims.
If you'd like to help the victims through this terrible event, please check out this http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/20/aurora-theater-colorado-shooting_n_1690093.html?utm_hp_ref=impact here. You can help by donating to The Colorado American Red Cross chapters, donate

Friendly Fire“I'm only waiting for death to come.” That’s what my grandmother said to me after she turned 90 last summer. It broke my heart and I said to myself: “I'm never going to start another fight with her again.” Then I began to look back on my life and I wondered why our relationship never was any closer. Ever since I've been a teenager I’m taking friendly fire from her. That's how I feel. She didn't like my friends, she didn't like my haircut, she didn't like what I was wearing, she didn’t like my music, she didn’t like my skateboard. For all my life I have been holding a shield on my left arm so she cannot hurt me with her words. The bullets hitting the metal have been a constant noise of my life. But I couldn't conform to her values. She hated homosexuals and she was against anyone who didn't believe in her god. I sacrificed our relationship in order to become a decent human being. At least that’s what I thought. But of course that isFriendly Fire1 year ago in Personal More Like This
