Henri Matisse: The Colorful Birthday Boy
flower collage by amalia51
He was the leader of the “fauve” (wild beast) artists, whose style of painting made a brief but indelible impact on the art world in 1904—08 with only three exhibitions.
The “fauves” sought to elicit emotions from their art by employing bright, often dissonant colors in depicting their subjects, even where no such natural color was to be found. Emotion was desired more than descriptive accura

When Tomboys win the love interestI have been annoyed for awhile now. A majority of the films, tv shows, etc seem to have it where the Tomboy is usually overlooked by the guy she loves by a new girl that appears and is a complete girly girl or had to change into a girly girl herself. So I was wondering, does anyone know of an Anime, Film, TV Show or anything else where the Tomboy actually gets the guy she loves without having to change?When Tomboys win the love interest11 months ago in Personal More Like This

Little mirror trickSomeone recently told me how, when drawing a picture, putting it aside for a little while and then coming back later on it allowed him to see better the mistakes in it.Little mirror trick3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think it's very true !
When you draw for long on a picture, you start to somehow become used to it. Errors no longer shock you because you have become familiar with them. And the more it goes, the more comfortable things become and the more difficult it is to be critical of your own work.
So here is a quick little tips for artists, very handy
If you worked a couple hours on a drawing, try to either put it in front of a mirror if it's on paper, or to flip it if it's on photoshop ( Image / rotate canvas / flip canvas horizontal ).
It's magic ! suddenly you no longer see your drawing, but a different one. a drawing that isn't yet yours. And so your eyes can immediately become critical again, picking up errors you simply didn't see before.
It can be a little painful sometimes but it helps
The new logoWelcome to Zeviantart !The new logo2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Seriously, to develop a little bit on why I'm not a big fan of the new logo.
First, I think it severely lacks personality. I mean it could be a logo for basically anything: a new brand of revolutionary ball pens, a new web search engine, an hospital, an oil company deciding to show how environment-friendly they are etc.. There is little that evocate an art site to me. The previous logo was very recognizable and carried a strong identity with it. you could immediately catch it anywhere, the trademark of a good logo.
This one ? not really, it just doesn't sticks.
The first time I saw it appears on my Firefox tabs, my thought process went like this : " ugh this green looks ugly on that grey bar." ( yeah that was actually my first thought XD ) And then " is it a tab to download some new firefox widget ?" I was very surprised when I found out it was DA's new logo. To be fair though, it looks better when it's bigger and on the DA site
Yay NaruHina is finally canon!I wonder if in few years I'll be celebrating this same thing for sparity. I rly hope so.Yay NaruHina is finally canon!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Anwyays, I'm a tad dissapointed. For few things I didn't like of how the manga ended, and some of them are the reasons of why I'm not a big Naruhina fan that i used to be. But I only will discusse here the naruhina related, not the ones that made me get away of Naruto's fandom.
So yeah, it got canon. But I rly think Kishi should have made something else; something more. It wasn't enough. I was not asking for a kiss, but at least a more evident hint of Naruto falling for Hinata. But no, Kishi rathered to keep trolling narusakuers with silly jokes that some people took way too serious. That rly ruins it. But well, he said he sucked at writing romance, and now he's proved to be right. Yes, Kishi. You DO suck at writing romance, that's why you're not an A++ writer. xD
Whatever, I'll have to do some naruhina stuff now! Although I won't do anything related to their kids, but something more romantic, beca
I GOT MY FIRST JOB!!!Today was a marvelous reminder of God’s perfect and amazing timing. For the last year and a half, I have not had a job because of schooling. My elderly grandmother and her sister have been supporting me month to month and I constantly believed the lie that I was selfish and ungrateful. I constantly guilt-tripped myself and told myself I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t do anything right.. I was consumed by fear of making mistakes.I GOT MY FIRST JOB!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have never worked a job in my life. Yea I do informal jobs like cleaning a persons house or babysitting, but never anything in public. I am 20 years old and I have never worked! Lol!
So I began to cry out to The Lord about it last year around summer vacation. My family was harassing me and telling me I was selfish. But I heard God through the midst tell me, “don’t worry about it Alex. Don’t even search for work. I have it under control.” “But God- what about when I am done with ministry school?!! I can’t even

My DeviantArt StoryI first saw DeviantArt in late 2006 while searching for fan art, bu I didn't join until 2007. I saw this as a great source of fan art and other reference material, but it wasn't until I really wanted to showcase things beyond fantasy (as I was on Elfwood Art at the time) that I really decided to try this site out. For over a year I posted random things before I released my first comic, NaruHina Chronicles as a practice comic to both increase my skills, and get feedback, before it took off really well, and gave me a small following that continues up to today, and has thanks to my watchers, given me confidence in my art, and helped me move towards more Original stuff, away from fan art and fan fiction.My DeviantArt Story6 months ago in Personal More Like This

I've been "dabbling" in art for oh man....Pretty darn near 20 years. (I'm old....) Way back in the day when there used to be such things as Gaming Magazines like Nintendo Power (anyone? Anyone else remember those? ) my brother would order them through the school magazine and book drives. (see...old!) and I would go through and marvel at the game art. Back then, it was 90% traditional art. I would go through these books and copy these fantastic characters and scenes. And yes, I would actually trace. *GASP!!* They even had a fanart section where you could send in stuff. Its there I first found a man by the name of Ryan Kinnard and I looked forward to his newest arts in Playstation Magazine.
It wasn't until around 1994ish that I discover Sailor Moon and anime.&

Nature’s “Show Fish”
Koi are those “giant goldfish” you see in fancy little ponds outside stylish people’s homes. Only, though both are varieties of carp, koi and goldfish are only distant relatives. Koi are bred for beauty, exhibiting a wide variety of colorations in distinct patterns and “scalations.” They are “ornamental” rather than edible fish. They are living abstract artworks in motion, endlessly gliding in and out of new compositions for their watery “canvas.”

What The Crap Is Even Furry?I think sometimes it gets confusing when we're discussing "furry" because the word covers several different definitions and literally nobody wants to be left out of including their Doom cyberdemon fancharacter and who are you to judge, anyhow?What The Crap Is Even Furry?10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Being an english major with an interest in linguistics, I find this is simultaneously a boon--as the lack of solid definitions for any of these prevents people from being shoved out the door for failing to meet that definition . . . but at the same time, it causes an enormous amount of confusion when we're talking past each other saying two (or fourteen) entirely different things with the same word.
Furry as it is used commonly means:
1 - The furry fandom in general. What this necessarily encompasses is hard to pin down; to some people you have to actually accept yourself as part of the fandom, but it's also possible to be a big fat geek about it and clearly be in denial of whether or not you are
Tomboy Stories Pt 2: Its the Lovers' TurnOk now let’s wash out this terrible movie with something more uplifting for the group.Tomboy Stories Pt 2: Its the Lovers' Turn2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Awhile ago members will recall that I did a journal where I asked for the tomboys of this group to summit stories as why they are tomboys or why they enjoy being tomboys. So this journal I want to hear from the other half of the group, the Lovers of Tomboys.
Yes I want to hear from these members what it is about the awesomeness of tomboys that you love about them most.
I think I will start.
When it comes to tomboys I cannot help but love their passion. Anytime a tomboy is one of the characters in the series I always find them the most interesting. Where characters are always so bland when a tomboy is introduced they always bring more energy and life to the series.
Case and point with Toph. I have to admit I barely had an interest in the series by the end of the first seasoned, as let’s face it we have an overly motherly figure, a guy that only cracks jokes, and a guy without a spine who i

Something else I feel that I need to mention in order to contextualize my journal better is that, I did not intend for the list to contain every exhaustive permutation of subcategories for anything I mentioned. Point 4 by itself (common furry style) contains all sorts of variations on anatomy etc--the thing is, with each definition, what it means is that when someone says "furry" they don't MEAN to drill down to an exact picture in their head (This is not the Furry Code after all).
But, nonetheless they usually mean something when they use the word, especially when they use it to exclude other things. Let me give a few examples. (These are all paraphrases of things I've read on the internet at one point or another)
