HADRON COLLIDER: New Color Discovered
A funny thing happened at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland.
The world’s most powerful particle accelerator was engineered to prove or disprove the existence of the Higgs boson – the so-called “God particle” that could unlock the secrets of several major conundrums of modern physics. But along the way, whilst smashing atoms together in their collider, the scientists have come up with somethin

Another letter to my watchers: Active watcher?Hey guys!Another letter to my watchers: Active watcher?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I feel like it's been far too long since I wrote an actual letter to you guys! I've gotten so many more watchers since then, as well!
For all you new watchers,
and for the one's who've stayed by me as well,
I really like making sure you guys realize how much I care about you.
I know a lot of artists refer to their watchers as a whole, but I like to think of you guys individually.
And wow are there a LOT of you!
1,445. . . Never did I DREAM of getting to even 1000 watchers. . . You guys this is amazing, and I've been blessed to have you guys take every step of the way with me!
I have a really big passion for deviantArt, and I have even a bigger passion for each and every one of my watchers. You guys are amazing and beautiful and if I could I'd talk to each and every one of you every day!
Lately school's been dragging my social life more and more down the drain, and it's only the second week of school! I try and will answer to each comment, and thank each new watcher... Just gi
The Fear of Arting?EDIT: 11/2/2014 - I had a rather bad emotional day today and was reading though my old journal entries... I think it helped remind me of some things I forgot.. maybe it can help you also?The Fear of Arting?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Original Post -
I do not like to discus some things here, for people see it as drama, but I feel, after listening to many of my watchers and even watchers of my friends, that this should be discussed. It is a decent length, sorry. If you are too lazy to read it, well that's your fault for missing out. Not mine.
So I guess it is more a fear of a reaction. As a child, one doesn't really have a fear of drawing. One doesn't worry about it. It is just there, you draw because it's super fun and you are proud to show people. However as you grow up you realize people judge you for it, or like my family, aren't initially supportive.
This is where the first round of artists lose to fear, or rather a large majority. You are told you can't be an artist, it isn't
I want...I want to make you feel confident about yourself. I want you to love yourself the way I love you. I want to be what you need, and I want you to be proud of me. I want my fingers to find a permanent place between yours. I want to figure you out; learn every inch of you. I want to know your past, present, and future. I want to make a difference in your life, the way you've made a difference in mine. Mostly, I want to tell you all this in person. I want fall asleep next to you. I want you to feel comfortable around me. I want you to feel like I'm your new home. I want to be yours and I want you to be mine.I want...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Use your art to help spread awareness for this Vulnerable Species
The Polar Bear, the ice bear, an apex predator of the north arctic circle. The largest of all bear species, this bear is a mighty carnivore. But as the ice the bears so desperately depend on melts at an alarming rate, disaster spells out in the murky water. Rising temperatures cause ice to melt, diminishing the bear's home and chances at catching prey. When the ice melts completely, polar bears will meet extinction below the freezing waters. Their population number ranges between 25,000-20,000 distributed among the nineteen subspecies.
What is International Polar Bear Day?
International Polar Bear Day(IPBD) is day to celebrate and spread awareness for the Arctic's Polar Bear
Our goal is to fill DeviantArt with Polar Bear themed art on February 27th
Important Notice For the Art CommunityHey guys! I don't usually push causes and things on people, but I thought this was important enough to share with you all, as it is something that effects the art community as a whole. The UK government recently pushed legislation through parliament that essentially legalizes art theft from the internet.Important Notice For the Art Community2 years ago in Personal More Like This
:iconseasonaldragon1: has brought this issue to my attention. Here is an excerpt from a note she wrote to me:
"I was wondering if you could help raise awareness.
The UK government has passed new legislation making it legal for images to basically be taken off the internet and be resold and reused without recognition or payment of the original artist.
There is a government e-petition against this, and I would be extremely grateful if you could raise awareness of this amongst your watchers in the UK.
The situation is explained better on the petition page.

'I Can't Draw'"....I'm afraid other kids are gonna make fun of my drawing because I'm not good at it."'I Can't Draw'4 years ago in Personal More Like This
....said a fourth grade student to me last week at an Elementary school during my character design lesson. The little boy's comment to me about how worried he was about not being able to accurately represent what he wanted to on paper made me stop and think about something our society sort of imposes on our artists.
Since when did skill in drawing = how good of an artist you are?
I'd like to know.
Of course, we all know drawing is a fundamental skill in which every "artist" is expected to understand the Elements and Principles of Art and Design with because these elements and principles translate to ALL forms of visual art.
LETS STEP BACK AND THINK.........
Think of Art Mediums like Musical Instruments.
Think of Drawing as the Piano.
It's the instrument that most people develop an understanding of Music Theory to begin with.
But what if you picked up a guitar first instead of a piano-- and y

I'll tell you a tale I know nothing about;
The Admission is free, so pay at the door,
Now pull up a chair and sit on the floor.
One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight;
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot each other.
A blind man came to watch fair play,
A mute man came to shout "Horray!"
A deaf policeman heard the noise and
Came and killed those two dead boys.
He lived on the corner in the middle of the block,
In a two-story house on a vacant lot;
A man with no legs came walking by,
and kicked the lawman in his thigh.
He crashed through a wall without making a sound,
into a dry creek bed and suddenly drowned;
The long black hearse came to cart him away,
But he ran for his life and is still gone today.
I watched from the corner of the big round table,
The only eyewitness to facts of my fable;
But if you doubt my lies are true,
Just ask the blind man, he saw it too.
I don't know

Twin Peaks Delayed

The REAL Difference between Anthro and FurryA common topic among the anthro community (and heck, DeviantArt at large) is the classification of what is anthro, what is furry, and what isn't. Heck, even well-established artists have a hard time explaining it, and to quote Scott Kurtz of PvP: "Cartoon animals don't have boobs!"The REAL Difference between Anthro and Furry8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
An often-offered definition of the difference between Anthro and Furry is that Furry is a sexualized form of Anthro, whereas Anthro is simply drawing animals acting like humans and sipping tea; ergo, Anthro is the 'true' art and standard of civilization, while Furry is its mentally retarded drooly cousin, mostly consisting of cub porn and recolored Sonic OC's.
This is the most widely accepted definition between Furry and Anthro. It's also dead wrong.
To help demonstrate this, I've made up a simple graph to make it clear what 'Anthro' is and what Furry isn't:
A brief explanation of the relevant bits so I'm not just repeating what's already written on the chart's deviation page:

It is common curtousy to not question someone you don't really know. Right?
You're walking down the street and see a gentleman in a wheelchair with cuts and scars all over.
Typical initial reaction: Oh, that person has been through something to make him that way. Try not to stare and continue about your business.
You wouldn't run up to that stranger and ask in their face, "HEY MAN. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU? WHAT ARE ALL THOSE MARKS ON YOUR SKIN? WHY ARE YOU MISSING A LEG? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR ARM? WHY ARE YOU SO WEIRD LOOKING?"
Why would you do it on the internet...?

Diversity of Women's BodiesDiversity of Women's Bodies1 year ago in Personal More Like This
From Howard Schatz's 2002 book, Athlete
Why it's embarrassing for comic book illustrators to only look to Sports Illustrated for references for female characters.
There is far more body diversity in the athletic world and characters should reflect that. Wonder Woman should be BUFF...and uh..that's all the female characters in comics I really know or care about....*cough*
I want to find the male version (I know there is one) of this because the message is equally true. While male characters tend to have more body variety; there still is that default buff man Conan model. My personal disgruntlement is when it shows up on batman who is suppose to be dexterous and not as buff as Superman.
