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!4 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

Simply put, you can choose your favourite Fullmetal Alchemist characters and make them crossover with another anime, film or TV show etc. I have written a list below of media you can choose from.

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
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.

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

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.

If you could steal the brain juice from any...three Deviants, which would they be?If you could steal the brain juice from any...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love a lot of Deviant artists and it's hard to pick just three. I'm basing my choices on who make me gnash my teeth with pure envy the most.
Here are mine:
What kind of art would I make after stealing said brain juice? Very dark, gritty, super-emotive people with cuddly, soft lines. And it would be MARVELOUS. And I'd have to get back into metal-smithing only long enough to fashion a wedding ring for my pencil, because I'd be THAT in love with drawing. People wouldn't be able to pry a sketchbook out of my fingers
Now I'm going to go back to studying anatomy and sob because I still have so SO far to go.
P.S. for the love of lambs, this is meant to be fun and silly and tongue-in-cheek. I thought the marrying-my-pencil part would give it away.

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?
You know their name, not their story.

If you support LGBTQ Rights you need to stop scrolling and read this. This is not a fucking joke.
If you don’t remember Sophie M Herold, she is a German girl, who is extremely homophobic and transphobic. She has found out LGBTQ persons names, addresses, personal info etc. And set up her own database.
Her intentions with this are harmful.
She is sending out this information, your information, your best friends information, someone you love and care about. She’s sending it to hate groups, malicious people, people with bad intentions.
And if you think I’m blowing this out of proportion, people have been kicked out of homes, disowned by families and even MURDERED. Yes, murdered. Innocent people who have done nothing but love.
She has had numerous blogs and each have been removed. Tumblr staff are aware of her, and as far as I’m aware she currently doesn’t have a blog, but this d
