HOLY FUCKITY FUCK FUCK.You know how this morning I made a journal about how Dala posted my music video on their Facebook page and their Manager emailed me and said I did a great job?HOLY FUCKITY FUCK FUCK.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
GUESS WHAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED.
The manager is my mom's friend's brother (as I explained) and they were emailing back and fourth about it and she just called to tell me that he decided he WANTS ME TO DIRECT DALA'S ACTUAL NEXT MUSIC VIDEO NEXT JUNE.
WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
OH MY FUCKING GOD.
I LOVE THE WORLD.
WHAT IS EVEN GOING ON.
He's talking to Dala about it right now.
We'll see how things pan out, but even just the POSSIBILITY of it happening is enough to make my freaking life.
And also, ALSO - I have learned now that he's a music professor at a Humber college, and if I apply there for their film program (which I hear is petty good), he can get me in really easily. (It's not where I want to go, but if I don't get into the program I want at York

Men"Men don't write things!Men3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Men kill wild boar and the blood splatter spells out what they want to say!
Men don't even own computers!
They live in lavishly decorated caves and eat raw meat while smoking cigars and playing guitars and are constantly walking away from explosions without looking back.
Real men work out by strangling nazis and saving orphans, kittens and women from various threats.
They also all fly jets in their spare time and go skydiving without a parachute, surviving the fall every time by punching death in the face, thus coming away unharmed.
Men never speak.
They communicate purely through fist fights."
Was talking to a friend about what a man is.
Sometimes I laugh at my own jokes.
This was one of those times.
Thought I'd share.

Manga/Anime Digital Gallery FeatureWelcome to Digital Manga/Anime! This is an article that will be highlighting each section of the digital art subcategory within Manga/Anime with a little about each category and then some wonderful features for you to enjoy!Manga/Anime Digital Gallery Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Firstly, what is “digital art”? It is artwork created via the use of digital media such as on a computer with a tablet or mouse. There are 6 digital art subcategories within the Manga/Anime gallery:
Digital M/A: DrawingsDigital M/A: PaintingsDigital M/A: OekakiDigital M/A: Manga Digital M/A: Vector Digital M/A: 3D
Manga/Anime > Digital Media > Drawings
So, what is the ‘Drawings’ category all about? Digital drawings are, basically, drawings that have been done with digital media (i.e., on a computer). The variety within the category is huge, simply because there are so many ways to draw and/or colour digitally and it is the most popular of the
It's All About Presentation (Mostly)As more and more people start taking pictures of their nether regions on their iphones or posing myspace style in front of their HTC's - the competitive world of getting a Daily Deviation gets just that much harder... I kid. But... daily, I am bombarded with awesome suggestions (which I love) and I'm not complaining about. But there has to be a criteria of sorts, that sets an image above the rest. Here are a few things I look for that you might not have noticed before... The first thing I look at when I stumble across an image or view a suggestion from somebody, is how the artist has presented their work to the deviantART Community.It's All About Presentation (Mostly)2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Your image isn't everything. Not anymore. In the past I have given Daily Deviations to pieces with titles that are a combination of random letters and numbers, or that are very obviously still the source file title - or that tends to be just a keyboard mash-up. Everyday CVs are sent many many notes suggesting pieces o
Who Cares About the Literature Community?A few days ago we had a chat to discuss community issues and solutions (see the original journal for details). Huge thanks to everyone who came and raised awesome points!Who Cares About the Literature Community?2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
It took 45 minutes for the volume of talk to max out Sta.sh Writer's character limit and this chat went for two more hours, so I'm just going to summarize the key discussion points, starting with big actionables for CRLiterature and for the community.
I've put the chat stuff lower down as it's denser: the outside bullet is the issue, and the inside bullet is possible solutions (not necessarily in order, each point is really a response to the original issue). There is a lot to think about in there, but feel free to pick and choose the issues you care most about.
Sorry for leaving a lot of stuff out, but I hope you guys are too busy figuring out how best to act on what we discussed to pay too much attention
Parts of "Brave" I worked onMany people have asked what parts of the film "Brave" I worked on so I figured it might be best just to post a journal entry about it. Warning... if you have not seen the film there might be some spoilers in this.Parts of "Brave" I worked on3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My role on the film was "Master Lighting Artist" but my general role is "LIghting Technical Director". Don't let the word "director" confuse you. I am not the head of lighting, it's just a term for every Lighting Artist that means our job tends to be technical and most of the "directing" I'm doing is kicking computers to get them to do what I want. For those who do not know what "lighting" means on a 3D animated film let me give a quick description. Pixar movies are not hand drawn like traditional animation. They more closely resemble stop motion film where a physical 3 dimensional puppet is made, a set is built, real lights are put in place and then an animator moves the puppet slightly then takes a picture, moves it again and takes another picture, until you have a whole "s
(Updated)DD suggestion guidelines!Hello all(Updated)DD suggestion guidelines!3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Firstly, I would like to say I am truly grateful for every DD suggestion I receive. It makes me feel reassured that the pieces featured are community decisions, not just my own subjective thoughts and findings. There are millions of writings out there and I can’t see every single one. I rely on good spots of others in hope of continuing to share a variety of good quality and unique literature. Thank you to those who suggest and those who continue to make the time to share their findings.
I prefer 1 DD suggestion per note.
Please always try to tell me why you are suggesting this piece. A bit of enthusiasm from the suggester can help make me feel enthused about the piece too. Plus it helps add a description to the DD

But Is It Art?
Perhaps the eternally unanswerable question. But definitely something to chew on... When I first saw it, I was instantly captivated.
At first thought, what a brilliant example of modern pointillism! Has some unknown artist taken up the long abandoned banner of Georges Seurat and presented us with a new manifesto championing art as points of light illuminating our waking dreams?!

OK, I see now it’s not a painting at all, so my pointillism exuberance is dashed. It’s more likely one of those photo collages with thousands of small imag
The Literature Community ExperimentThis is a typical example of a BeccaJS shower pondering! The idea of this is to try and bring together as many people as possible all in one journal, but not for the sake of making a big number, but to encourage interaction and share useful tidbits. We often say the "literature community" has drifted apart over the past few years and this is just one attempt to try get people to come back together. It's a little hippy, perhaps a far-fetched idea, which is why I am calling it an "experiment". This could be successful and could be a complete fail- only you guys and your efforts can decide its fate!The Literature Community Experiment2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Wow! The response for this has been HUGE!!! Thank you so much all of you who have participated! Don't forget to add CRLiterature to your watch as well as replying to all these wonderful comments!

The Echo chamber dilemmaThe promise of the Internet was that unlimited information and experiences would draw us together. But instead it seems to have driven us apart.The Echo chamber dilemma2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For years I've observed this behavior but haven't been able to vocalize it correctly. Originally I called the behavior of collective opinions as "the hive mentality" of the Internet. But that wasn't exactly right and I often got called out on it. The most prominent example was when I made a comic about a guy disagreeing with opinions and being shouted at till he remained quiet, eventually fading into the background with everyone else. The consensus of that comic was that if you disagree with someone you aren't bullied into not speaking, but instead are free to go someplace else where people who do agree with you exist. And you know what? That wasn't what i was trying to convey, but is sadly true. The Internet is not a hive mind. It's many tiny pocket echo chambers of mutual agreements.
And this is becoming a growing problem, I think, because n
Inspiring Deviants: LiteratureEveryday, I have the opportunity to meet so many wonderful deviants who continue to inspire me. In the eight years I have shared my writing here, I have had the privilege to meet others who value my passion for Literature and beyond – and have gained so much. From many here I have learned the power of stirring inspiration, delving into our creative passions, and connections in love and friendship. I wanted to spotlight just a few artistic souls who have made a distinctive impact in my life – and to express my deepest gratitude towards them all for making a difference within our Literature community.Inspiring Deviants: Literature2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This

Hello guys! This is iDJPanda on the topic of "Commissions"! Bear with me though. I've never given a commission in my life but I know how people portray their commissions to get them! I hope this article may be of some help to you guys.
Setting up commissions can be hard and making it appealing to customers even harder but there are a few things you can do to any passerby make a double take to see what you are producing! (This is going over how to write a commission journal but can also tie into the widget as well! )
One of the most important steps in this process is providing examples
If you're like me, you LOVE examples. And you ask, "Why are examples so important?"
Providing example works of what you are commissioning leaves the commissioner an idea of what kind of style and quality of artwork they will receiving. It's basically the sampler of the main dish. You don't want to provide "na
Identifying a Possible DDWith so much variety out there, it can be difficult to know what makes a piece good enough to receive a Daily Deviation (DD).Identifying a Possible DD2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We've put our heads together with the Literature Community Volunteers (Lit CVs), to come up with some advice on what makes a DD stand out. This isn't a definitive list, nor does it guarantee that your suggestions will actually get featured, but it should help you better understand what sets DDs apart from the rest.
Emotional Reaction and Wider Appeal
Possibly the most defining feature of all successful DDs is how they connect to the reader. Reading is often a personal and intimate activity, thus the emotional connection between the reader and literature varies. At some point though, we all form a connection with what we read. In the words of Nichrysalis:
"Writing should resonate on an emotional level, as art does, whether it entertains, saddens, or shocks. If a piece resonates with me, and I
