Merry Christmas and a Happy New YearHello fellow friends, watchers and everyone else who stumbles upon this...Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today is the 4th Advent, in not even 6 (for some people 7) days is Christmas Eve. Because I won't be at home from Christmas until the 29th or even 30th of December I decided to put up a nice Feature of Christmas Art. Today I had my Mum, her boyfriend and his father over for dinner. We had fried trout filets, boiled potatoes and cucumber sald and a nice apple-vanilla-cinnamon junket as Dessert. I wanted to do something for them - they always support me so much and the father of my mum's boyfriend invites us for dinner so often and he just won't let me pay when we go to a restaurant. So yeah - this is the only chance I have to invite all of them for dinner...and it was so nice even though a lot of work - I guess I will do it again I think somewhere around next year - maybe in April before Easter Sunday or something like that...maybe earlier..I don't know yet ^^ I'm

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming3 years ago in Personal More Like This

"Heil Hitler!" A dozen or so male voices pierced the before quiet room. You watched as they stood their red emblem clad arm out in salute. All around you where women, dressed fancy with their gloves and silk gowns. Of course you weren't much different. In fact you were almost the same.
You had a long, fitting red dress on, with white gloves and your hair was done beautifully by your head maid.
Currently you were at a party for higher ranking Nazi's. Most of them knew the Führer. Including your own boyfriend, Gilbert Beilschmidt.
Gilbert was a very handsome man, with pale features. Pale skin, pale hair but crimson eyes that made you have chills down your spine whenever you looked at them.
He was a wonderful person, maybe his ego was too high sometimes but he was very caring and fun. But lately, well, he'd changed. Ever since that start of the war, he had grown colder.
"Heil Hitler!" The women repeated joyously. You muttered it a little half hea
A Note For The Hetalia HatersA Sidenote:A Note For The Hetalia Haters10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I just read a ton of Hetalia hate. First off, calling us Hetafags is extremely immature and offensive. Two, Hetalia isn't so much racist as stereotypical. The definition of racist is as follows-
1. the belief that races have distinctive cultural characteristics determined by hereditary factors and that this endows some races with an intrinsic superiority over others
Yes, Hetalia may showcase countries as having distinct traits based on physical and hereditary factors, but does it make it seem that Japan is superior to America? OR Germany is superior to France? No. It shows the good AND the bad in these countries. If you're going to go hate on Hetalia for being "racist", then I suggest you walk up to the White House every single time you see a news article about another country and speak to Obama about it. There has never been a time where we have not all made fun of someone else or been a bit stereotypical. I respect everyone's opinion, I just think calling it

New Generation: Carter Carter - Carter was born in Goldenrod city, and was raised by his extended family, as his parents were traveling abroad, studying legendary pokemon. Carter's home was a dare care center, and was around pokemon all the time. One day, a female feraligator gave birth, leaving behind an egg. The Trainer was to preoccupied with training for the Pokemon league, and didn't take the egg, leaving it with Carter's family. Carter took care of the egg. After a few months, it hatched, and out came a small Totodile, which he named Sid. Carter and the totodile were inseparable, as they always went on adventures together. As Carter grew and matured, so did Sid, his personality evolving from cute and harmless into a bit of a pervert, with amazing skills of thievery. Despite all of Carter's efforts, Sid wouldn't evolve, perhaps out of stubbornness, or maybe because girls wouldn't hold him if he was a feraligator. When the time came for Carter to go on his adventure, Sid was tNew Generation: Carter4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Committed Canvas:icontechgnotic:The Committed Canvas4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tattooing has existed since the very beginnings of Neolithic human expression and has since those ancient beginnings continued to be a reliable flash indicator of personality type. There are those people who get tattoos and there those people who simply do not. Even though the social opprobrium for getting inked has greatly disappeared in recent years, and even though skin art has become almost boringly de rigueur amongst rock guitarists and other entertainers, there is still one element that separates the tattooed from the non-tattooed in terms of artistic appreciation: commitment.
Tattoos may be the first “interactive” art form. The art lover doesn’t just buy an artist’s artwork – he or she becomes one with artwork, he or she commits to becoming a living canvas for the artwork, he or she, by choosing the tattoo to be borne forever, shares authorship with the tattoo artist of the artwork.

Hey, everyone! I’m Eric Proctor (TsaoShin) and I’m a US based digital painter. My work is a mix of fantasy, fun, and the stuff I think is cool. My background in oil painting influences my style and I like to keep my colors outrageous. I’ve been on deviantART for 10 years and my artistic growth has been shaped greatly by this community. I am continuously inspired by the amazing work that people submit here and I’m motivated by the love and comments left by people who appreciate it. Thank you for all of your support!

Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous ExamplesJust for fun I thought I'd do a rundown of the most common forms of humor, their definitions, and examples. This is not a complete list by any means, but they are a list of many forms of humor and literature discourse which often get confused of mixed up.Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous Examples1 year ago in Personal More Like This
An imitative work created to mock, comment on or trivialize an original work, its subject, author, style, or some other target, by means of satiric or ironic imitation.
Example: The movie "Airplane" is a parody of 1970's disaster movies. Many of Weird Al's music videos are parodies of other more famous music videos.
A work of visual art, literature, or music that imitates the style or character of the work of one or more other artists. Unlike parody, pastiche celebrates, rather than mocks, the work it imitates.
Example: The movie "Super 8" is a pastiche of 1980's adventure films, specifically imitating the style of Stephen Spielberg's early career,

Reposting our art can get you a free keyI get a lot of people asking if it's ok to repost our stuff on sites like Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, and other social media sites.Reposting our art can get you a free key1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Not only is it ok if you repost our work, but it's very, very much appreciated. Obviously so long as you credit us, please (linking to our shop is much appreciated). It basically draws more people to us, so we really really love when people do this.
A few weeks ago we had someone on here repost some of our keys on Tumblr. It got a lot of attention and drew a lot of people to our shop. I finally tracked down who it was and gave them a free key (thank you again, FrozenNote ). Then I thought, I wonder how many other people are reposting our stuff. I see it a lot of places (and I would say 95% of the time they credit us) but it's hard to find who posts them.
So, I wanted to put it out there that if anyone ever reposts our stuff and links to our shop and their post gets a lot of attention (let's say 1,000 likes on Facebook or 1,000 notes on Tumblr)
How to Write a Proper CritiqueIts my personal opinion that deviantART has a pretty good critique system, but what good is a wonderful critique system if you dont know how to write a proper critique? Most of the critiques Ive seen around here have been pretty good, but heres a guide that I came up with just in case you need a little help. =]How to Write a Proper Critique5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Dont forget to take this article with a grain of salt.
The DosUseful informationWhat the artist has done rightWhat the artist has done wrongHow to improve
A critique should be useful.
A critique should provide useful feedback on the piece thats being critiqued. It should include what the artist has done right, what the artist has done wrong, and most importantly, how to improve.
Tell the artist what theyve done right.
Its important to let the artist know what theyre doing right not only because its useful knowing that, but because its encouraging. You never want to have your critique sound too
