Internet BullyingFor many kids growing up in the 80's, if you were bullied in school you were able to "tough it out" because you knew your social interaction with said bully was isolated only to when you were in close proximity of them. When the bell range and you went home, you could dismiss the bully's taunting and physical abuse and be reminded of friends and family who supported you and kept your spirits up.Internet Bullying3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But in today's day and age of seemingly constant online connectivity, the "victims" of bullying have a harder time escaping. Once the bell rings, they're still potentially subject to be bullied via verbal assaults online, which often goes completely unnoticed by parents and friends. The worse part of this is that we're often told that because it happens "on the internet" there's no real consequences of trolling or bullying, which is far from true.
I've never accepted the excuse that just because "it happens on the internet" means it can't personally harm you in real life. Part of that is from m
Premium Content and how I feel about making moneyHalloPremium Content and how I feel about making money3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's a new feature called premium content that allows users to make file downloads available for a charge. This seems to be something with a vast range of different possibilities that range from quite nice to to quite lame. Of course we are all always against commercialization and sell-outs and everything and don't want things to change but there are some interesting options here.
Obviously everyone is going to know whether or not this is something he or she could use and how much sense it's going to make for what you do specifically but there's two points I want to adress.
I always thought it was lame when people sell stuff like brushes or psd files. This is probably just my personal opinion and many will certainly disagree for valid reasons, but I think, if you make some brushes, and you ask money for something as tiny as that, you are lame. Sorry. Actually, the point here is not that it will kill someone to pay like one buck for something tiny, it's just that it change

Stylish Pixels: the Versatility of Fractal ArtFractals have wide application in the modern world, and can be used for purposes as simple as basic screensavers or as complicated as detailed environment generation in games and movies. While fractals can be used as tools, they also can be used to create beautiful, abstract, and awe-inspiring artwork in a virtually limitless number of ways. This article will attempt to do a quick summary of fractal artwork, from basic applications of fractals in artwork, to a look at the community itself.Stylish Pixels: the Versatility of Fractal Art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Stylish Pixels: the Versatility of Fractal Art
There are three "categories" that I consider encapsulate fractal art as a whole:
- Fractals as "objects" that can be "photographed."
- Fractals as "brushes" that paint and shape various sections of the fractal.
- Fractals as "paint."

Jeff the killer x ReaderYou walk home from your friend (friends name) house and as you walk down the side walk you hear a faint scream coming from a house. You looked at said house and there was a window covered in blood, then all the sudden a man looked out the window. You looked as he was holding a knife in his hand and big eyes with no eye lids but the weirdest part was that be had a smile carved into him face. He stared outside then spotted you with his big eyes and pushes the window open. You were frozen in fear at this and you had to force yourself to run away from there. As you ran you could hear foot steps of someone else. You turned around to see the man from the window in a white hoodie and black pants. You started to try and run faster but you were slowing down from running.Jeff the killer x Reader3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
You soon relive that your in the woods and running deeper in it. You look back and don't see the man from the window, you stop and pants from exaction of running. You then feel something sharp and metal like tap your cheek

Ok, following the line of sharing with you the lyrics from the original themes of the OST, here I let you the ones from my personal favourite: Wreck-it, Wreck-it Ralph by Buckner ‘n’ Garcia, who were previously famous for writing video game-themed songs in the 1980s, like Pac-Man Fever =3
I love this song a lot since it describes the Fix-it Felix Jr. Game mechanic and backstory so well… allowing you to appreciate the characters from both points of view ^^!
Wreck-It Ralph is a giant of a man
Nine feet tall with really big hands
Living in a stump on his very own land
Until his world went crazy.
He was minding his own business on the day they came,
They showed a piece of paper saying "eminent domain".
They built an apartment building saying progress was to blame,
But he got mad, and he turned bad
Brick by brick, he's gonna take his land back!
Wreck-It Wreck-It Ralph as fast as you can!
You know you can do it with your colossa

Critique of Fractal ArtCritique of Fractal ArtCritique of Fractal Art5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The first step is to define what is critique after all. Lets quote Wikipedia (an old version of the article, though):
Critique is a method of disciplined, systematic analysis of a written or oral discourse. Critique is commonly understood as fault finding and negative judgement, but it can also involve merit recognition, and in the philosophical tradition it also means a methodical practice of doubt.
Critique is an accepted and established process of orderly scholarly and public debate. In the fine arts and the humanities, and especially in writing, critique is influenced by the scientific method of analysis. Critique is based upon an informed opinion, and never upon personal opinion. Informed opinion is accepted as being technical knowledge, personal or professional experience, or specified training.
So what does that means?
First, critiques are commonly negative. You are not supposed to point out positive aspects of the work when writing a cri

GOOD NEWS FOR ANYONE WHO WANTED TO SUBMIT THEIR CHARACTER TO BE PART IN THE FINALE CAMEOS!
We sadly lost a few fans of the comic due to the fact they deactivated their accounts in the past few months, while it is tragic, we cannot have people's characters in here who no longer exist on this site. We will have a memorial for them of course, but we will need newer characters and new people! : )
So I am reopening the Finale Cameos again to anyone who wants to submit their character to one of the biggest comic character cameos out there!
We also want to make the cameos more selective now that the main goal has been reached... Meaning we will accept characters that we consider original and are not recolors or re clothed characters. DO NOT WORRY IF YOU SUBMITTED A CHARACTER LIKE THAT IN THE CAMEOS, THEY WILL NOT BE REMOVED! PROMISE!
If we like your character, you, and how you pre

can you please introduce yourself?
I've been around on deviantArt for about 7 years now. My name is Stan and I'm an avid learner and artist. I freelance as a graphic designer and artist and have had the privilege of working on some very cool projects that use my fractal artwork.
What is the first thing that makes you attracted to Fractal Art?
I love the depth of fractals. The unlimited potential really appeals to me. You could take one formula, study it, explore it for years, and still not see absolutely everything there is to see. With all the variables available fractals are a constant discovery.
Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean MindWelcome to the first 30 day challenge! This month’s challenge is:Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean Mind3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Clean Media, Clean Mind
You’ve heard “you are what you eat” and it applies to more than just food. So the challenge is to clean up what sites you visit, videos you watch, and music you listen to. After the month is over, tell us via picture or journal how changing what you consume, has changed how you think, speak, and act. Things to cut out of your media diet: sex, drugs, drinking, swearing, occult, and violence.
These challenges will be harder for some than others, so I’ve included three levels of commitment.
Level 1: baby steps
Cut out media that is blatantly sinful. I’m talking porn, violent movies, songs that swear every other word, etc. If it’s too hard to hold off for 30 days, consider how that itself is a problem. Are you making media an idol? Talk to a trust friend about it or a fellow group member. Also consider listening to a positive radio station:

After some time of discussion, we finally decided to hold monthly challenges in our group, starting from today.
The rules are really simple: at the beginning of each month, we will be giving you a theme for which you have to create a fractal artwork to be submitted in a dedicated folder of our gallery. Some days before the end of the month, the gallery will be closed, so that the judges will be able to go through the creations and decide the winner of the challenge. Really simple!
On the 19th of February 2015, according to the Chinese Tradition, the Year of the Goat has started. To continue the celebration, we invite you to create a fractal based on this theme! Take your fantasy beyond the limits and represent this event through your art.

Adopt! :DWillow had to go to the vet today for her rabies shot. She doesn't feel too good and has basically been hiding out all day. This is the first time I have seen her since I got home and she is now laying against me while I watch tv. I rescued her from a shelter 1 year ago as of Sep. 9th. She was only 3 pounds for an adult cat and the ugliest little thing. I am happy to report that she is now 7 pounds and beautiful as can be. It goes to show what a little love can do.Adopt! :D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first photo is of the picture I found of her on petfinder the day before I went to see her in the shelter. Within 10 minutes of being with her, I adopted her on the spot and a few hours later she was home with me.
So glad I have her in my life.
If you are considering a pet, please think about all the adult cats and dogs that still need homes in your local shelter! They need love too!
