PE: Decorating Your ProfileCommunity WeekPE: Decorating Your Profile2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Your profile page is the first thing people will see when they click on your name, so it's very important to leave a good impression! This article will provide some useful tips and tricks for both premium and non-premium members who want to convert their profile into their own, unique page. First off, some Do's and Don'ts of profile decoration:
Use dA's profile widgets-- there are lots of great options to chose from
Show off some art (that's what people are here for!)
Express your personality through colors, stamps, gifs, etc.
Add so many images that your profile takes forever to load
Use garish or headache-inducing colors
Make text difficult to read with dark backgrounds
While many widgets are restricted or locked for non-premium members, there are still a variety of great widgets that you can add to your profile, even without a membership.

Your name is Sollux Captor, and you're at Eridan's house, on his couch, sitting next to him, watching a movie. Well, barely watching a movie. You two are sorta huddled together, because holy fuck is it cold.
You don't really notice you're doing it, but you begin to lean your head on his shoulder. This earns a weird look from Eridan, however, you don't notice till he say something.
"Uh, Sol, what are you doin'?"
You look up to meet Eridan's face. You then see the questioning look he's giving you. And you also don't let that blush on his face go from your notice. However, even though you enjoy the blush, you begin to blush yourself and slowly move away from him.
"No, it's okay.. Just a little wweird.."

You must draw Lucia.
The theme must be either something to do with Spring or Summer.
It must have background and color, shading not required.
Aria can be included, so can Souhl, only if you know who those characters are, though.
I'd prefer it to be digital, but I'll accept traditional.
I really don't want anything in pixels.
One entry per person, and you can redo yours, just specify which one you want to enter with.
If you can, post a journal about this.
NO USING BASES. JUST NO.
You steal? You meet an early grave.
[Bullet; Blue] PLEASE LINK ALL ENTRIES TO MY PAGE OR THIS JOURNAL.

I always like realism more than cartoonish, but it doesn't mean that realism has an advantage, just putting that out there.

Crunching noise of the ground.
For a brief second I saw tiny mushrooms and flowers under me, but they quickly disintegrated into dust.
Impossible. Shock-Hallucinations. I haven't seen grass in so many years.

I felt a cold pull at my stomach. Something else was coming, re-awakened by the presence of Captain.
Something worse than the shuffling noises of the red beasts outside. The sound of falling cannonball.
Whatever that fleshy monstrosity was, it cared not for me, but it's presence here led ANNIE straight to me.
...And it came to pass on the morrow, that the goddess in the machine came upon me and she wanted vengeance.
She was online, the thermonuclear bombardment of the core databank cube had failed to shut her down.
She was still alive, after all these years.
The explosive crash-landing of the hunter machine through the old roof drew THEIR attention.
I was now between two wild beasts, out for my blood.
What was Protocol 1-1-3?
Memories of Directorate weapon codes lingered in my mind, poisoning my thought pattern.
Could it be?
...So this was to be my death.

At first - Merry Christmas everyone!
For those who don't know: I'm studying media design with focus on Games & Animation at the moment. In the past year we learned a lot of the basics, but now my class has one year to create and implement a little game!
The team is called Inky Manatee, and just before Christmas holidays we finished the creation of a comic with the basic story of our game. The comic will be released in 2015, but you can find some of the artwork on our facebook page!
Unfortunately the page is only in German, but if you're really interested in it, I'll talk to our project leader and request a English translation for future updates!
Some of the people who are part of the team and worked on the comic are here on dA as well, so if you like, check them out!

OBJECTIVE: CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND STORY BUILDING
I began working pretty heavily on LMS during the first quarter of 2009. I had now a handful of characters, a rough idea of the story, and a general scope of what I wanted the book to be. To get started, I felt every book should have a theme. Movies do, right?
Spider-Man: Great powers, great responsibility.
Batman: Be more than just a man, a symbol, and be remembered a legend.
Star Wars: The myth of a heroes destiny, and the truth that allows him to be set free.
Who was Gabriel? What type of character or archetype was he? What were his rises and

My neurons tingled, misfiring.
Was it numbing the pain of being compressed into a hexagonal cocoon that pressed tighter and tighter?
No, it was showing me what it could see and feel, what my limited human vision could not.
The aggregate virus bore into my body, feasting on my cells, borrowing me to expand itself, yet it did not take over completely.
I was here, no I was out there, I was a hundred trillion cells and they were ALL suddenly under my control.
It seems that our relationship status has been upgraded from "master controller/slave drive" to an "unlicensed symbiosis".
The Biomatrix served as my new eyes, letting me peer through my own skin, bones, flesh and organs, through my fireproof jacket, through the web of intertwining lights that bound us in a stasis field, through the thick, crystalline walls of the Arbitrator's spacecraft.
My vision intensified, expandi

OBJECTIVE: SELL THIS DAMN BOOK, DANNY.
At first, Gabriel was nothing more than a character named ONE. He had no backstory, no face, nothing. I just wanted to create a character that was a badass, yet with a sense of humor.
I was inspired by such characters as Boba Fett, Wolverine, Deadpool and Clint Eastwood from The Man With No Name trilogy. I needed to create something that fit that build, however, I'll admit, it wasn't intended at first.
I uploaded him on December 8th, 2008, (which, you can find here: http://danluvisiart.deviantart.com/art/GABRIEL-107612010?q=gallery%3Adanluvisiart%2F7848546&qo=50) and he became one of the most popular characters of the series, if not, the most. Soon I started finding him on forums, websites, fashion blogs (what?), and more.
But what hit me so hard was that the majority of the comments rela

That strange place, so distant, yet so close to my heart. Buildings as tall as mountains.
Dead structures, watching with dead eyes. Empty, vast and endless honeycombs of stone and steel. Air filled with gray ashes, always fluttering from the cloudy sky.
The black vortex opens up in the sky, descending down to the city. The vortex spiral rips the city apart, bending the air itself, feasting on light, feasting on time.
There is a lonely figure standing in the street.
No matter how hard I try to make out his or her expression, I cannot. Is there no face there at all? Or perhaps there is a million human faces there, intertwined and flickering in unison, as bright as the light of ten thousand suns?
The being stares into the abyss of the vortex.
It takes another step towards it, into the horizon of nothingness, into a place where nothing can exist.
The stones of the roadway beneath its feet crumble and flutter in t

His sexy excuse for selling stolen art is:
"You can find this image on many wallpapers websites and there is no copyrights on it.
You should start with all these websites who are permitting everybody to download the image and do whatever you like with it."
Oh, la di da.
Let me just go after millions of blogs all around the world that re-post my art and write all of them to delete everything.
Because that's the most logical thing to do.
Essh, some people.
Art salesperson, Why u no respect original artists?
Image sharing sites like imgur and reddit make it super easy to spread art without ever crediting the original.
Even the deviantart DMCA takedown notice is ridiculously long now.
Deviantart, why the fuck are you making it so difficult for me to report stolen art? Is it really necessary for me to fill a freaking application with my place of residence, and click on lik
wow really?So i've recently found out that there are some artists out there who claim themselves as "professionals" yet all they do is basically taking people/customers money through art commissions and not finishing the work in months or even years, victims are mainly those who have already paid and patiently waited for that amount of time and still not receiving what they have paid for. Some artists who does this are artistically good, with relatively good amount of followers/fans, and some are popular here too (and maybe some other art sites, not just on DA)... It kinda sucks to think about it, the artist you admired for so long are the ones who does something like this. I feel sorry to those people who fell into this situation or if you've been in this situation before, i do hope you get your money back in the end. I mean, those money they've received didn't just grow from trees, people worked hard for it just to commission their fav artist(s), and yet knowing there are artists like thiswow really?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

For several months of torture, the Directorate kept me in their offices, making me file paperwork on their "test subjects", all while I kept sending applications to the "Dead Zone tourism" branch, to get away from towering cubes of the Directorate, away from cities and transmitter towers that were slowly frying my brain.
Centuries of industrial pollution were inevitably changing the biosphere of our world and the Directorate knew it better than anyone, yet they did nothing to stop it, profit had to be maximized, production had to be increased, customers had to be satisfied. Holes in the ozone layer, irreversible changes in the atmosphere, radioactive fallout, wild-life mutations, the days growing darker and the sky turning black - none of this mattered to them.
These changes must have been so gradual that no single generation was able to protest it.
Everyone was happily, playfully, and joyfully ignoring the world outside o
SNIPPY: QUESTIONABLE REALITYI definitely thought about killing Captain, especially after several pranks that were pulled on me like that time when I woke up with a bucket super-glued to my head and declared "iron man".SNIPPY: QUESTIONABLE REALITY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Or that time when Captain made a soup out of my gas mask filters because the broth needed the "Smooth flavour of Snippy" and salt wasn't available... so I had to roam the decaying shopping malls for a new pair.
Or that time when Captain pushed me into a watery abyss inside a wooden barrel to celebrate "Niagara falls day".
Have my thoughts become so compounded as to finally cause schizophrenia?
...Am I a stone throw away from becoming like Pilot, talking to pet rocks and building the Bastion of Captania out of rotting shoe boxes?
And if I were to kill Captain who would I have left?
I must have been talking out loud like those crazy hobos that lived outside the protectorate dome that communicated with radioactive rain clouds via conversations of interpretive dance, until they were consumed by a famil

I Was Not Ready For This
What did I just sign myself up for?
I had never made, drawn, written, or created a book in my life, so this was all pretty foreign to me. I had told Heavy Metal publishing I'd do it on my own dime. Reason was, this was my project.
Not that I can't cooperate or collaborate, but this time I wanted to create what I saw in my head, and not have a voice behind me telling me what to do and what not to do. Kevin Eastman, head of HM Pub, was incredibly generous in this decision and told me to lead the way, and I tried my damnest.
So I started with the obvious fundamentals. What is the story of LMS?
Now, as a whole, LMS's simple logline is incredibly simple. A man who gets framed for a crime he didn't commit, breaks out of prison and goes after those

or while elections aren't happening send them lots of letters and make phone calls.
We proved that this works by defeating SOPA. ACTA is next.
