The Allure of a Red Dress
Maybe it’s being the color of blood that makes red such a strong color, especially when displayed in public. It is exotic–a matador’s cape, or a vampire’s, or a flamenco dancer’s skirts. Most women have their “little black dress” for evening’s out. Black tells no secrets. It’s on the occasion of the “red dress” that we suddenly wonder what’s on the someone’s mind.
The message of “red” in novels, films and music is passion barely controlled, of sexual temptation. It is a flashing warning light. Plastic surgery made John Dillinger
A defense for Princess CelestiaNOTE: This is not intended to attack anyone. Please refrain from flaming other people for having different opinions.A defense for Princess Celestia3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my vision, Princess Celestia is apparently the most hated/disliked/disregarded pony character among the good guys in MLP:FIM. And she also receives a mass amount of false characterization and crude joking from the community.
I find it very difficult to search for her on YouTube, Deviantart, EQD, Google images, ponibooru, without stumbling upon several videos/deviations of Celestia being trollish, tyrannical, cruel, sexual deviant or just an all-out depraved monster. Of all the cartoon characters i've seen so far, i've never seen one being so fanonically butchered as Celestia is.
Here are some arguments that gave origin to all the "Celestia abuse"
She sent Luna to the moon
Now i think i understand why people are so strongly focused on this argument; specially because they think it was too much of a "cruel" fate
Stranger in New New YorkSo, you might know I'm working with my Futurama fanfiction - Stranger in New New York It's a pretty large story and it's in Russian, I'm not able to translate it unfortunately.Stranger in New New York2 years ago in Personal More Like This
BUT, I'm keep drawing illustrations for this story (and not only me!), so I decided to write very short retelling of main plot to people understand what the hell is going on on my drawings.
Retelling divided by chapters, so:
Chapter 1 (Cinema) Full chapter here >> http://ficbook.net/readfic/238436/684304#part_content
Around the year 3018. Fry and Leela are happily married and lives with their five years old daughter ALice in the New-New- York in their apartment, on the twentieth floor of the old hight building. Fry allowed Alice to watch late night scary movie with him, and Leela was pretty angry about that. Alice convinces that she's not scared at all, promises to Leela that she won't be scared at night and won't come to parents' bedroom.

WATERMARK EVERYTHING!This journal of interest is in consideration of the recent massive art theft by art4love, as quite a few chaps have suggested that "watermarking everything solves all your problems".WATERMARK EVERYTHING!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will answer you my delicious opinion: NO. Watermarks are butt-ugly. Hidden signatures are beautiful.
Even if Art4Love managed to sell anything of mine, the paintings still have my name right on them, hidden between buildings, in the cracks, or as signs.
And to add here's a very inspiring comment by user "pppanties" from Reddit:
WHY IS EVERYBODY RECOMMENDING HIDEOUS WATERMARKS AND DOWN SCALING?
That's like telling us to build shorter skyscrapers after 911 or letting a bully keep you at home.
Art is for display. It's a performance. A piece kept under wraps and delivered at less than optimal is a disservice to both the artist and the audience. If an artist only intends it to be a preview, to be sold or presented under a different venue, fine. But many artists, especially internet artists, only want t

Not because of copyright. I understand that when you post something on the internet, you're posting it for everyone to look at, and it's going to get shared around. But the comped-up piece of shit you see above (minus my commentary) is all over the internet - it's far more widely distributed than my original version. Back when I used to read my messages here and on Fetlife, I had 12-20 messages per day about stuff like this. Mostly it was people trying to be helpful and telling me "HEY! Look over here, there's another person who smeared shit all over your art!" And it used to take me an hour every morning to cut and paste URLs into DMCA requests to get this kind of crap taken down.
But that's really only the tip of the emotional iceberg for me. About 1 in 10 times that I post a DMCA I'd get a message from the perso
the endimagine yourself in a forest of thistles...the end2 years ago in Personal More Like This
you've chosen this unnatural path some years ago...
it looked like a straight, smooth way,
the easy way.
the way almost everybody appeared to prefere.
not really fascinating
but is seemed wise to go along instead of
crossing the wilderness or standing still.
the first few meters you've left behinde were
easy. you went up, you went down, you made
rests... and while you sat there you cought a glimpse
at the scenery.
this was the moment where you felt that
incredible longing again, you've felt before ...
the longing that has gone away due to the rythmic
steps of your monotone journey...
you sat there ... just an instant before you started
to walk again. shaking your head, to get it out.
but you can't shake your heart. can you?
the further you went, the more you felt that
the road started to sprout thistles...
just a few in the beginning... but more and more
the further you went...
numb from your longing, you tumbled through that path.
bad news everyone, futurama cancelled once again..really bad news everyone, comedy central decided not to renew futurama for new episodes in 2014 and beyond, and that means that for the 3rd time, the series will end. the last episodes (for now i hope) will air since june 19, 2013, and the final episode will air on september 4, 2013.bad news everyone, futurama cancelled once again..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
comedy central gave futurama new life since the dvd movies, but in the last season, the viewers and discs sales where not enough. according to ericrogers, futurama head writer, it is well known that futurama is very expensive to produce.. so that pulled the plug.
david x cohen and matt groening are waiting to see if any other network or alternative can keep the series alive (fans are talking even of kickstarter or internet broadcast). any idea is welcome, but we will have to wait a while in my opinion.
meanwhile, there's a lot we can do to keep the series strong this 2013 and beyond:

What is this `Simpsons Evolution`???As many of you followers have been seeing has been a rag-tag collection of sketches and frenetic colorings, but what haven't been treated to is the story behind the Simpson family, 24 years beyond the current canon...so, for the first time, this is what goes on in this worldly spinoff that connects all this "art" together.What is this `Simpsons Evolution`???7 months ago in Personal More Like This
First and foremost, the tone of this spin off is NOTHING like the past 20 seasons of the Simpsons--if the tone was to be compared to the current show, the tone would feel like something out of the first two seasons: A bit brooding, gritty and semi-realistic. (Now, if you're thinking those are the worst two seasons because they're the most boring, please quit reading right now.) In 'Simpsons Evolution', the tone of the series isn't based on random, attempted gags, contrived guest stars or Homer being hurt over and over. Here, the tone is a dark w/cynical humor that's based on the characters and how they relate to the world and each other.

She's anorexic? You'd be too, if everyone called you fat everyday.
She's a whore? She made one mistake that cost her, her reputation.
She's a show off? Her parents abuse her, & she's never heard a praise.
She's loud? She's invisible at home, & she wants to be heard.
She's quiet? She's afraid to speak, because she's afraid to get made fun of.
She's fat? She eats, because she misses her dead brother.
She's a geek? She wants to get into college, so she can support her poverty ridden family.
She doesn't wear Abercrombie? Her parents have been out of work for months, clothes aren't her top priority if she can't ever afford food.
She's ugly? Tell me, what is the definition of beauty? Who are you to judge them?

Korra: Making of a Legend on NicktoonsI would like to point out this new information to all of you find people:Korra: Making of a Legend on Nicktoons3 years ago in Personal More Like This
“After the finale, The Legend of Korra fans can learn more about the mythology and creation of this franchise by tuning into the "Nicktoons" “Korra: Making of a Legend” special event from July 9 – July 20 during which all twelve episodes from Season 1, Book 1 will air weekdays at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT). Each “creators cut” episode offers insight into the creation of the stunning imagery, mythology and storyline where series creators and executive producers, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, provide commentary.”
Sounds great! But if you don’t have Nicktoons it will be posted up in a journal when someone record it and put it online; that way people who don’t have Nicktoons and or live outside the U.S can watch it too.

I want you to think for second, if you were in an accident or found out your parents had a diseases that left them 6 week to live, what would you do about it?
Would you help them? What if it's your brother or sister that needs help? Would you help them? What if it's your next door neighbour? What if it's someone from a different part of the country? What if it's someone on the other side of the world?
But here is the real question. "If you could receive the help, then why can't you give it?"
Every minute of the day someone somewhere needs blood, everyone need blood sometime in their life, maybe they were In a accident or trying to get through a very risky and difficult operation or even giving birth. They are counting on you to make sure the blood is there when it is needed. Please don't wait for someone else to do this. You are needed.
Only 4% of the eligible population are giving blood, not everyone can give blood, you need to be heal
New Username Symbols: The JourneyA New Road to TravelNew Username Symbols: The Journey1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When I was first approached with the project to redesign and replace our user symbols I was naturally quite shocked. For those of us who've been part of deviantART for a long while, changing the username symbols seemed like changing the colour of the sky, or asking everyone to suddenly start walking backwards, right? It seemed like such a fundamental part of what deviantART is that it was hard to take on board. But then really, when you think about it, the old symbols were meaningless at face value. And that, my dear friends, is exactly why we set about looking at rethinking them.
Think about when you first found and joined deviantART. Did any of the symbols make sense? Did you stop and think "what is this ~ before my name and why is it there?" Maybe, but possibly you're probably like me and just kinda accepted it because that's the reality presented to you. After a while, though, you'd have seen the * and maybe even a ` or ^ an
