Apparel Collection: Monster TalkTogether, we are deviantART, an amazingly diverse community of fantastic individuals from all reaches of the globe. It’s a beautiful, creative ecosystem where the wildest voices can speak their minds and share their expressions. When designing this collection, I wanted to celebrate that diversity. When you’re at a concert, on an airplane, or sitting at a café, it's sometimes fun to look at the people moving and talking around you, each with their own unique style and outlook. Be part of the big conversation, where all voices matter and everyone can be involved.Apparel Collection: Monster Talk2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The characters in this piece spawned from a conversation I had while teaching a high school class on character illustration. The topic was making interesting-looking characters, and everyone seemed to agree that you have to make a complex contour shape in order to satisfy the goal. I countered by simply drawing a line of jelly bean shapes on the board. At first, it looked boring -- just a bunch of wonky

The street photographer as a serial killerThe street photographer a schizophrenic, scientific serial killer?The street photographer as a serial killer3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Two things made me think of this connection a documentary which covered the various types of killers: those who kill from afar (by bombs or by shooting with a hunting rifle) the closer kill, such as a pistol shot, and the close up killer who enjoy watching the victims face as he thrusts the knife in.
The best street shooters are the latter, they want to smell the perfume and see the facial expression before they shoot.
One of the many symptoms of schizophrenia is being captivated by details. Some drugs mimic this, hence the stereotype of the spaced out hippy contemplating a flower.
This is also a characteristic of the street photographer. We can be confronted by a mass of hundreds of people on a city street but we notice the small, unusual things those two are about to kiss, that homeless person is wearing an expensive watch, that tattoo mimics the dress pattern.

Pitfalls to Avoid and Tricks to Use while Naming People and Places
We've all been there. You're reading a pretty interesting piece of fantasy fiction, and a few paragraphs in you learn that the main villain's name is "Abraxas the Cruel, Lord of the Black Tower." You wince at the unoriginality, close the deviation, and move on to something more interesting. We've all been on the other side of things, too, with a detailed plot outline in hand, staring at a Word document that displays only a single line: "???? knew what he had to do--kill the president." We're sure that once we get that protagonist's name down, that perfect name, we'll be able to write the whole thing in one gush of brilliance, but all that's coming to mind are banal names like "John Everyman" or over-the-top ones like "Staff Sergeant Max Fightmaster".*

Hi! Welcome to projecteducate’s week on poetry forms. I’m here to talk about poetry in more general terms, which might help you with the rest of the week. As a great lover of poetry, it makes me incredibly sad when I see a comment on dA that says

Ken Ham- 'Stop the space program or go to Hell'On Sunday, Ken Ham, president and founder of the creationist organization Answers in Genesis (best known for debating Bill Nye), wrote a blog post calling for the end of the U.S. space program.Ken Ham- 'Stop the space program or go to Hell'2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Why? Well, according to Ham, who also runs the Creation Museum in Kentucky, there’s no point in spending money on finding extraterrestrial life for a couple of reasons: First, the search is a deliberate rebuking of God, and second because aliens are already damned to hell.
We've already peeved God by discovering that dinosaurs existed and that the Sun does not, in fact, revolve around the Earth. Now we're going to go out and discover alien species? Non-Christian alien species? Microbes on Europa that were never given the gift of salvation? No sir, we must engage our maximal level of eyes-shutting, lest we see that. We may have to use glue or staples, just so none of us are temped to peek.
The logic here, though, is just stellar. I mean it; this needs to go
On pricing your artwork and creating a career...I am going to be speaking at an "Entrepreneurship In The Arts" program later today, and I've been organizing my thoughts. One subject that is certain to come up; "how do you arrive at a fair price for your original artwork?" I have some definite ideas regarding that question.On pricing your artwork and creating a career...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was always told that the accepted model for artists and artisans, when it comes to pricing, was double your costs for materials, figure out an hourly price (double that for your retail price if you plan to have wholesale/retail differentials), add it up and there's your item price. I think this model is pure bullshit.
I was also told "charge what the market will bear!" Again, vague bullshit. What if you live in a depressed area? What if you live in a third world country? What if you're at some artist's ally at a little convention and there is a kid sitting next to you selling her character sketches for $5 each?
Here is what I think. There are so many variables when it comes to pricing original art. Yo
update New Hacker group activethank to CHRISwillar for the updated information.update New Hacker group active2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey members ; this is just a small warning - there's currently a hacker group going around on dART that steals your login info by using already hacked accounts. Simply, by use of coding, this group has changed the url path of several accounts (one of their tricks is by posting a comment on your works, claiming it has been stolen, followed by a link), so that when you go to visit their profile page, you are instead redirected to what seems to be the dART login page. But it's not! If you take a look at the url, you will see that it's in fact not a dART url at all. This what the fake login page looks like:
One of the victims is ~neomoti - she has been accused for being the hacker, but this girl is not at fault; the hacked account is no longer in their possession however she has opened another instead to start over -> XxneomotixX she explains it in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=

Sometimes, things don’t happen then way that you want it to and it sucks, but don’t let one event in your life make you live your life differently. Don’t let that one thing in your life that went wrong, change the way that you see things. Don’t be sad that you are still alive, be happy an grateful that you are still alive. Everything will get better. I can promise you that it will. As long as you are trying your best, you can achieve anything - You can go far in life.
I get it, it could be one of those days, where your day starts off really badly and you keep hoping and hoping that sometime soon your way turn around for the better, but it doesn’t, right? The next time you have one of these days, remember that you have the ability to change the way your day turns out, if you put enough effort into it. You will be able to do it, just believe in yourself.
You are not worthless. Don't ever let anyone make you think
BullyingOkay so in my gallery there is a picture about being bullied. Guys don't be afraid to talk to your parents about it. Trust me. I know. Just earlier today I finally had the last straw. I finally broke. Someone who hates me for no reason other than to be a bully told me she found my "Diary" which I don't even own a diary, never have never will, at her friend Shata's house (which I was only there once a year ago and I didn't take anything with me) and she claimed that inside of it, it had details about me drowning two little kids. It had my name and phone number inside of it.Bullying2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay guys, shes been bullying me for a while, and I've been dealing with it and not telling my mom.

Day of SilenceHello everyone!Day of Silence2 years ago in Personal More Like This
April 20th is the annual Day of Silence. The Day of Silence is when everyone goes quiet for a day to observe the silence forced upon those of the LGBT community. Those who chose to go silent on this day are screaming out louder than any protests. We are bringing attention to those who have and continued to suffer, and we are showing them that we support them. You don't have to be part of the LGBT community to support them. They are people too, and they deserve their rights. Let's band together and fight for those rights on the 20th of April by enacting the most powerful form of protest - withholding our voices from the community.
For every single person you know that is gay, a lesbian, transgender, bisexual - speak up. For every single child you have or could have that is or may be gay, a lesbian, transgender, bisexual - speak up. For every single person you do not know that is gay, a lesbian, transgender, bisexual - speak up.
Speak up by spending a day in their shoes.

Sympathy For the Devil...Well, not exactly.Sympathy For the Devil2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Due to some recently good journals written by others, I decided to write an entry myself. And yes, it is about bullying, but a bit different.
When a lot of people who have not gone through it think of a bully, it's normally just the mean girl, or the bug guy who comes to take your lunch money. For people who have gone through it, it brings to mind an image of an angry, cruel (maybe a bit stupid) person. Both of these views could be right or wrong, depending on the situation, but there is a popular, and saddening new trend that I've seen: victims.
I thought about this when looking back two years ago. From the start of school, I knew this girl, let's call her Anna. We were in the same homeroom, and had lockers right next to each other. She seemed nice at first, so I tried to make a friend. I've always been bad at this, granted. Then when I tried, she started yelling, saying I was dirty, had bad clothes, and bad hair, and things like tha
Quitting the AddictionIt seems like people nowadays are addicted to sadness. We all want a reason to feel loved. It also seems that we can't help but feel sadness, loneliness, hatred, pain, and other emotions we really dont enjoy. or do we? i think the sadness we feel starts off true, but eventually, we fall into it, and it becomes part of us. it's no longer weather, but our climate. and the sad part is that we allow it to happen. no matter how much we say we hate it, we get to a point where there is no other emotion we can feel, or rather, we WANT to feel. i think we start to despise happiness, rather than appreciate it.Quitting the Addiction2 years ago in Personal More Like This
