The results of Draw Tom Ripley contest
It has been 4 and a half months since I started holding my first contest Draw Tom Ripley Contest which is a long journey full of new experiences. The origin is just an idea to cope with many deviants who kept asking me for points since I won 5,000 points from Plan Gone Wrong Contest last year. I told them to draw me Tom Ripley first and I'd give them some points in return. After I had got 2 pieces, I started to think "why not make it as a contest? It's gonna be fun."

Birds are fascinating creatures. Many of them possess incredible abilities. For example, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds migrate 500 miles non-stop with their tiny wings, and Chickadees are able to remember exactly where they stashed their seeds in up to a hundred hiding places for a month!
Several species are in decline and are at risk of extinction due to habitat loss, pollution and other reasons. See what you can do to help here: http://www.birds.cornell.edu/AllAboutBirds/conservation

Silver Soldering ToolsArtist's ToolboxSilver Soldering Tools1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Silver soldering is one of many different types of soldering, and is a commonly used technique in jewelry-making. There are many different tools that can be used for silver soldering - I will go over the basic tools that I use in my soldering endeavors, but there are certainly a lot more than I will be able to cover in this article!
The first and most obvious "tool" in silver soldering is the solder itself. Silver solder is just that - it is silver alloys that are specifically created to melt at certain temperatures in order to be perfect for varying soldering jobs. The silver solder that I use comes in sheets & is cut into small chips in order to be used. There are different 'levels,' if you will, of solder - most commonly called Hard, Medium, Easy (and I sometimes use Extra Easy).
The difference between the 'levels' is the temperature at which they each melt. Hard solder melts at the hottest temperature, and Extra Easy at th
Quick updateHey DA,Quick update3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I finished the first page of my comic last weekend, but I'm going to hold off on
uploading it until I got five more pages done.
The first page is a little bit too vague by itself.
Right now I'm animating the new Eddsworld episode.
Again, so sorry for the slow process. It's coming along nicely now that I'm out
of that depressive mood that I've been having. (Sparing you the details)
I think Tom wants to show the first (two?) scenes at MCM next week,
but I am not entirely sure about it. So keep checking the Eddsworld twitter.
Besides all of that, I am thinking of animating some parodies for a YouTube channel of my own.
Apparently a lot of people get started this way, so I am going to give that a shot.
I know a lot of people that hate that kind of junk, so I apologize in advance, lol.
I won't give this priority over the comic, since that is something I really want to do.
Also.. Any suggestion for a channel name?
The ' PaulToons ' account that I have been banned ever since I uploade

I was going to animate something with my own set of characters,

A guide to DeviantArt popularityAlright. I've actually planned on this article for weeks now. A little too long maybe. But now I feel I can't let it sit in a folder on my computer unfinished and take up space. It has to come out, especially after having read an article about something similar, but written in such an arrogant manner.A guide to DeviantArt popularity7 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So many people come to this community. Some just to browse, and most come here to have a place to display their artwork and get feedback. Many want to be "popular". But honestly, what does that mean? Lots of attention, favorites, watchers, and what everyone seems to want and think their art deserves, a Daily Deviation feature? Some go as far as to attack and belittle other artists for having more pageviews than them, or getting more comments. Is that what the word "popularity" means? I think that word is misunderstood and misused.
Here are a few simple suggestions/steps that will help you become a better fellow deviant, get more attention and increase your popularity:
American Internet Censorship BillA lot of people want me to talk about this to help bring awareness to what's going on. Apparently there's a potential bill that's going to be voted on in the Senate that would allow companies to "blacklist" websites in America if content is found to be stolen or pirated.American Internet Censorship Bill4 years ago in Personal More Like This
From what I understand it's pretty broad in it's definition (which is never a good sign for success) and under the new bill if a company simply filed a report, even if there's no evidence or proof, the offending website would be blocked by internet service providers by law. This is a grossly oversimplified explanation, of course, and you can read more about it here: http://americancensorship.org/
This has a lot of people really scared that their favorite websites, such as DA or YouTube, might get blocked.
Honestly I don't have any faith that this bill will pass. And even if it did, the moment it gets brought up before the supreme court it'll be decided that it's against the first amendment on free speech and be disband

why people hate the hetalia fandom - rantThis one is pretty long.why people hate the hetalia fandom - rant5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the past months, the Hetalia fandom (which I was never much involved in in the first place) has grown considerably. Sometimes this is good; it's always nice to have more people share your interests. And I am by no means a kind of person who starts to hate something once it's popular. I still love Hetalia, whether or not people agree with me, but even I, as someone who supports the...whatever you'd call it...am starting to get sick and tired of the fandom. No wonder people hate Hetalia, when they see the kind of moronic behaviour I keep seeing around the internet. When it gets to the point that a hardcore fan such as myself is shaking her head in disgust, people need to shape up, Jesus. As someone who likes Hetalia, I really don't want people seeing my page and going "Ew, it's one of them", and then writing me off completely as a moron.
Also I'd like to stop right here and say I am not calling out anyone I know personally or anyone here, I

a few years ago, someone from real life asked me what deviantART was; i responded with, "home." and it was. it was the warmest home i had because i met beautiful, wonderful people who made the ugly i felt becoming me, less ugly. beautiful people who have now ripped me into absolutely miserable pieces and have had no problem leaving me behind unanimously.
but the souls i met here, the souls who somehow connected with my words, saw what i didn't even see in it and found it beautiful enough to remember, i cannot tell you how much i love you all for it. i have a folder of all the comments i ever received in the past and it makes me outright happy to know that even in a little, seemingly trivial moment, i made a difference in someone's life. it sounds cliche as hell but i don't care because it means beyond much to me.

Disney Did Not LieDisney, DreamWorks, Pixar. They all spoke of people following their dreams. And those people made it. They had to go through trial after trial, until it seemed they hit a dead end. And of course, they could have failed. Most of them were idiots. Or lucky. Or both.Disney Did Not Lie4 years ago in Personal More Like This
But they were determined. They didn't ask for happiness. And more importantly, they didn't ask for someone else's happiness in exchange for their own. They welcomed the pain, they enjoyed it.
Because it meant that they were close. The pain was terrible, of course it was. Pain hurts. They didn't give up. That's what Disney was trying to teach us. Don't EVER give up. Even when that seems like the only option. Embrace the pain, and you will find peace. Embrace the pain, and you will find happiness.
After all, men do not fail, they simply give up trying.
And I promise that I will never fail.
Remembrance DayIn Flanders fields, the poppies blowRemembrance Day4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; wait and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead, short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields!
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands, we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
- Lieutenant Colonel John Alexander McCrae (Canadian, 1872 - 1918).
November 11 is an important day for us to remember not only those who have died to protect us, but also those who still fight for peace in our name.
I can never read or hear that beautiful poem without it bringing tears to my eyes. My family is not a military one but this day is unbelievably close to my heart.
Let us never diminish the great sacrifices of those brave men and women.
