How did you first discover deviantART?
Well to be completely honest, i had no idea that this site even existed, until i got with husband . He told me about this website that is dedicated to artist , and I took and look and decided to join.
What was it about dA that made you want to stay?
Its addicting !! Ok well it is but the real reason why, is because of how amazing everyone is. The people i had met when i first got on da were amazing! The more and more people i meet, i feel like im growing not with only myself but with all of those around me.
Also i would have to say all the inspiration i have gotten from so many different types of art, and the biggest thing is being able to relate to people, because we all have our story !

JOURNEY, Best game i had ever playedThis got to be the most amazing game i had ever played in my entire life. Been a gamer for almost 30 years, played all type of games, including hentai games, hhahahahha. But i was not satisfied at 100%, i mean final fantasy 7, zelda, shadow of the colosus, call of duty, pacman. All games were amazing, especially Shadow of the Colossus that almost gave me a 95% satisfaction.JOURNEY, Best game i had ever played2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And i asked myself, i had seen it all, i topped the gaming genre, i wont cry again for the beauty and sadness like Shadow of the Colossus anymore.
I WAS WRONG-
I bought the collectors edition, i highly recommend it.
There were times i just sight and enjoyed the view of the landscapes, hearing the wind sound, then i noticed the loneliness, and felt bad, so each time i saw a companion i was so happy to begin a journey with them. I felt sad when a monster eats my companions, you truly care about them.
At first i was like damn there is another player go away, leave me play alone, but the more you play, the more loneline

X and Zero reported the incident of Lumine and the new generation reploids going Maverick to the high authority. This cause production of the new generation reploids bearing copy chips of old reploids DNA to be halted. However the incicent was kept classified so it won't spread fear to humans.
Axl, having no signs of recovery was admitted on the New generation reploids research facility to be investigated. Dr. Craig Sid is the main scientist to lead the investigation on Axl's current state. He introduces himself to X and Zero as the new reploid to act as the director of the Jakob elevator.
Humans growing more weary of the Mavericks, they have created a settlement from different places on earth. However, new mavericks causes havoc on the human settlements.

Surprise folks. Kid roleplays.
I've been roleplaying for years to be honest. If there is a roleplay server on my current MMORPG obsession I've always made a character on it. Sometimes I make alts on NON-RP servers just to fuck around and RP on. Sometimes it's just me and a couple friends running around doing weird shit and RPing.
And yeah. I will RP outside the MMO too. I like interactive creative writing and that's the basis of RP. It's a creative literature based pastime. Typically my RP outside my MMOs tend to be fandom-central.
Why did I bring that up? Cause it's gonna be basis of this rant.
Sure, it can apply to anything, and by god take it to apply to anything. So, you ready readers? Cause here I go.
10 Deviants Who Will Change the World10 Deviants Who Will Change the World2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I joined my school newspaper so I had to write an article about art. I chose to display the works of some of my favorite deviantARTISTS. But instead of picking junk art, like fanart and tumblr art, I decided to hunt down some deviants I've been watching who spread powerful messages through visuals or words. I also wanted to pick artists that don't show up on the front page a lot…so the undiscovered talents of this site, if you will.
This is just my rough draft so it still needs an INTRO and a CONCLUSION and then the editor has to look at it before and make changes before it gets published in the university newspaper, but tell me what you think.

I haven't been online much lately - actually, all I have done the past weeks was to upload some stock over at kuschelirmel-stock (and set up a contest - more on that below). I haven't even logged into this account since late September
So, just in case that happens again, if you need to get a hold of me, please send your note to kuschelirmel-stock as well.
Stock Use Contest
I am holding a "use my stock and win great prizes" contest over at my stock account - I would so love to see a lot of entries! It runs until January 1st and the only "theme" is that you use my stock
Some of the prizes offered are points (over 3000 points all together) and exclusive stock, for example:

Join a SOPA and PIPA debate What are SOPA and PIPA?Join a SOPA and PIPA debate3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The United States Congress is proposing two laws that address the problem of wide-scale unlicensed distribution on the Internet of motion pictures, songs, trademarked goods, and patented pharmaceuticals.
One of the proposals is called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and would direct search engines in the United States to block Internet sites outside the United States that are primarily engaged in distributing unlicensed content.Another proposal called PIPA (Protect IP Act) would block websites located in the United States as well.The Obama administration is putting a stop to these proposals. It wants the Internet companies and the content companies to get together and come up with more functional and less destructive solutions.
DisEnchantedI am still very angry at deviant art at the moment. I love the community and I will stay, but as far as having faith in people claiming to have our best interests in mind. I think we are being lied to. I still believe that hitting them where it hurts is the solution or at least a way of having them listen to us. I still fall back on the quote from a friend.DisEnchanted3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"What good is a new coat of paint if the wheels are falling off"
This is not a rant about all I deal with everyday but more to inform you of plans I am doing. They keep saying that one person can make a difference and I am willing to test that saying. Maybe I can be an example and others will follow, or at least try something. Anything is better than being a sheep. Y'all don't know me as a follower, that's just not how country boys are raised.
I have closed both of Tammie and mine stock accounts and started moving things here. I refuse to give DeviantART more money. I also created Louis-Cyphre as a place to run my dark groups.

okay, so after a swarm of questions many of which left me with my jaw on the floor... i realized something...
people are afraid of pushing a button to see what it does
okay, to backtrack first. i am self taught in photoshop, had no books had no tutorials, had a borrowed i think 7... dunno which was before cs2 when i started, i learned it by ....pressing a button and seeing what it does
i explored, i tried stuff out.
i had no teachers no schools no education on this stuff
i saw a button i pressed it.
that is how about 9 years ago when i first decided to try and apply digital coloring to early pages of ravine, i was dabbing paint on a page. i came to the point where i had to paint a waterfall. so , just for fun i tried putting scattering on the foam brush i made, a simple thing. and i was gonna see if smudge could be scattered. it had a weird side effect.

For those of you wondering what SOPA/PIPA are, take a look at this video http://fightforthefuture.org/pipa/
As a protest of #SOPA and #PIPA (The Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act) two pieces of legislation that are up for debate once again on January 18, 2012, I will be blacked out from all my websites, deviantART included. What does this mean?
"On January 18, between 8am and 8pm EST (or 13:00 and 01:00 UTC), Reddit will be blacking out their website in protest of SOPA and PROTECT IP.

:iconthesmallwonder:A reflection by thesmallwonder
While warm summer is probably my favorite season, I have a soft spot for fall. It's a colorful season full of reds, oranges, and other fiery colors. It means cuddling with blankets, wearing cute scarves, and sipping warm cups of tea.
But mostly I love fall because it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood fairy tales called, "The Leaf in the Shape of a Key" by Joan Aiken. It's about boy who rides his bike beneath trees in fall, catching all shapes and colors of leaves. The last leaf is in the shape of a key, and it opens a door in the base of a tree.
I rode my bike under a lot of trees as a kid hoping to recreate the magic, but unfortunately, it's a little less whimsical when you live in a neighborhood of pine trees.
Still, fall is a time of nostalgia for me and the photograph

in the night of june 02/03, a large crowd of protesters managed to put an end to being chased back from beşiktaş in front of inönü stadium / dolmabahçe. a hijacked crane turned the tables for a little while, pushing water cannon trucks and policemen back up dolmabahçe boulevard. the night ended by the police hitting back with full force from several sides, dispersing the protesters but unable to further penetrate the taksim area.
