but it's better than none... I'm poor, so this will be easy for me, i'll do it for the sake of the internet.
But i doubt it will pass anyway...
Since we're at it, i might as well just share this video too.
I've recently just watched it, and people been sharing this a lot.

SNIPPY: evidence"Blasted mug!"SNIPPY: evidence3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I looked at it hatefully.
"This is all your fault!"
I attempted to throw the mug at the Arbitrator, to smash it, to let go of it.
Nothing of the sort was possible.
I flailed left and right. The mug did not budge. I could not let it go, no matter how hard I tried. It was as if it were glued to me with a strange static-like substance. It rolled between my fingers and from one hand to the other, but it was as if I were made of iron and the mug were a powerful rare-earth magnetic bearing coated with oil.
Why can't I let go of the mug?!
Did the Arbitrator's reconstruction of my organs have anything to do with this?
Upon giving up to prying the mug out of my hands, I turned to the Arbitrator and spoke.
I made my case calmly and clearly, pressuring various facts that my DNA couldn't possibly be on the mug and that I looked nothing like Captain and that it might as well scan my memories for evidence or something of that sort.

I try to give out the result faster than usual since DA is having promotions for premium member subscription. That's why I try to give you the result sooner so you may use your points for it. Though it's not enough but I hope it can help some how .
With a lot of entries therefore it took me while to choose top 5. This time, so many good entries with great concepts. It's really hard for me to pick 5 only.
I don't pick the top 5 base on drawing skills only but also the concept of their entries. But there were more than 20 entries I want to pick as winners :C. But don't worry, we will have more challenges in future.
I am truly sorry for who don't make it, not because you are not good but because we only choose 5 here. As I usually said for challenge, it's not a contest, it likes a little 'push', a little motivation for you to draw (it's also a reason why the prize for top 5 is just little). If you don't make it this time but I believe you earn somet

A Word About deviantARTThe internet can be a terrible distraction when what you mean to do is get up, uncap those tubes of paint, and do your best to commit the image that's behind your eyes to some vague approximation on canvas.A Word About deviantART4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Art takes time-- time to scale your own wilderness, sometimes in the dark-- and the internet has a way of leaching every last hour from the day before you've even noticed it's gone.
Then, one day, you stumble on to dA, and there they are: your actual peers, throughout the world, all striving for the same things you've been striving for; some are offering sage advice, some are heaping abuse wherever it will land, and a few are just killing time-- but mostly, you'll find artists engaged from both the right and left sides of their brains in the full-time obsession of art.
We're told that the left side of the brain is where language and logic abide, and the right side is where imagery and intuition brew, and for artists, the trick throughout their lives will be to reconcile the
ry-SPIRIT DAYIn bringing awareness of Spirit Day (Which is now called Ry-Spirit Day due to my creative and narcissistic input), I have decided to write about when I was little and when I was bullied. I know what ya thinking, how can a girl magnet cool looking guy like me get bullied? Truth is... I was never popular and yes I used to get bullied.ry-SPIRIT DAY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thats a picture of me when I was punched by two boys. Im sure bullying happens to EVERYONE, whether you are a jock, emo, geek, gay, straight, tall, short or any other school stereotype you are ALWAYS not safe from bullying. For me personally, I was a polite kid who tries to be nice to everyone, but my kindness has sometimes gone punished, for example in primary school my school friends decided to take advantage of my purity and ignorance and shyness and bully me, mostly to make themselves feel better and for them to have something to laugh about. They would make fun of my loving family too, how I got a mum and dad, cos they are single parented so
A Brief dA WalkthroughI know you probably all have a fairly decent idea of all that you can do on dA, but you can't go wrong doing a bit of a refresher course!A Brief dA Walkthrough4 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you first log in (or when you click the "deviantART" link in the top left corner of any dA page), you get taken to the front page of dA. This is where you can search deviations, or just browse to see what's there. The "Popular" browse feature was just revamped to give fairer exposure to all popular art, not just the overall popular on dA. Use the popular browse to see what's popular in all the galleries. Don't want to look at all that? Refine the galleries to something that more suits your preference in the left-hand side bar. Want to see what's new, not just what's hot? Change your browse to "Newest" and you'll see everything that's just been submitted. Because of the way "Newest" works, it can be frustrating to browse, here are a
Deviant DiscoveryDeviant Discovery3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
WHAT IS DEVIANT DISCOVERY?
Deviant Discovery is a weekly Journal Feature that focuses specifically on Deviants that have good art, but haven't gotten much attention for it. Every week, a new Deviant will be chosen, and a few of their artworks will be show in this Journal, along with a description of the artist themselves. This weekly feature will serve as an attempt to get under-appreciated artists more attention then they already have.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It will work in a similar way to Daily Deviations - either I could select a Deviant myself, or someone could be suggested by another Deviant. Once a Deviant is chosen, we'll find their best five Deviations to be featured in the Journal. Then, we'll give a short description of the artist's work, and a small explanation of why they were chosen. The feature will remain on the front of my page for seven days [168 hours; one week], so that the Deviant can get continuous attention. Suggestions could be s

Top 10 childhood Fictional Girls LoveThis is another very naughty journal entry, so if you are under the age of 18, please leave this page right now! No, in fact turn off your computer and go out for a walk! Its good for you! Right, here goes. When I was young, before I had the courage to talk to real girls, I used to have crushes on fictional girls that appear in games and anime...... Don't judge me. Ok here's the top 10 fictional girls I used to like.Top 10 childhood Fictional Girls Love4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Number 10: Sakura from Street Fighter
I used to play this game called Capcom vs SNK on my Dreamcast and one of the character is Sakura, her cuteness and tomboyish look caught my attention. I remember there's certain moves you can do like Jump+kick or Standing+Roundhouse that allows you to view her red panties. Those were the days huh? I still don't get why I was interesting in seeing her panties back then, I should've known better that without them is the way to go.

Sorry but Medakas box its out of the list, chapter 2 was really boring to me, didnt got the gainax feeling i love, so i skipt it.
Also Nyarlko didnt made the cut either, i just couldnt stand the intro, i just wanted to kill myself, because when you became older you cant stand weird voices, anime was good solid, nice animation, really really moe, but feels strange of a 30 year old man, watching a naked kid tha looks like 14 taking a bath, i recoomend this anime for young a people new to anime. Seems to be a bit funny, but i just cant stand the voices sorry.
Ginga e kickoff, looks also good but aimed for kids, the story looking interesting, but after watching many soccer animes i will pass this one too.
Eureka seven Ao, also looks really good, solid animation and music, but im a macross forever type of dude. So i will skip this one too, first c

PE: Scanning And Photographing A/M WorksIntroductionPE: Scanning And Photographing A/M Works1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
A traditional artist faces a great challenge after finishing an artwork. How do they get it on their computer to upload and show the world?
There are two main options: Scan or Photograph. Both of these come with a horde of challenges and this article is to offer a starting point for the artist to experiment and find the best solution for their art.
There are a number of type of scanners, the most common domestic peripheral being the flat bed scanner. This article focuses on using a flat bed scanner and not a wand or other type of scanner.
First things, the scanning bed must be as clean as possible, clear off dust and pet hairs before attempting to use and make sure the scanner is on a stable surface for scanning. Some scanners will be sensitive to direct sunlight being on the outside, if you find that your artworks get a strange bright spot, do check that section of your scanner isn't being exposed to direct light.
Introducing #dALinkSystemHello!Introducing #dALinkSystem4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'd like to introduce you to a fantastic group and tell you all about it!
dALinkSystem is a Group dedicated to increasing artists exposure, by helping others and themselves through a simple and effective "Linking" system.
"Link another artists submission in your artist's comment box. It helps everyone's exposure and finds undiscovered art."
The Link System was originated by TheFulkrum and myself (Echostar08), in May of 2009. What began with a few "Linkers" has grown into a large "Linkers Community" of caring deviants, who utilize The Link System to help increase their exposure, while helping others.
Linking can be done in as little as 5 minutes. It's simple to do and takes only a little extra time when you're submitting a deviation. The little bit of extra time you spend to personally choose and feature someone else's art in your artist's comment box (or in your deviation description), is ve
I have an idea DA!!!I know you are looking for super useful things to add to DeviantArt! Please consider this! It would make life significantly easier for people with or without subs!I have an idea DA!!!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Somewhere on the top bar of the profile page, make an optional add on a Commission button!
If you choose to display this you can set it to either "Commissions Available" "Commissions Closed" or "Not taking commissions" for example.
If one of the former two, the button is a link to url of users choice, be it a journal entry or webpage, with their commission info.
Can you see how brilliant this would be? Visitors would know straight away if they had a shot at commissioning the artist rather than having to ask, and non-sub members can show this info without needing a custom box or having to copy and paste the same info in all their journal entries. C'mon DA, you know you love it! I don't need any credit!
As a side note, the button should be color coded! So if the button says "Commissions Available", it will be in say, a friendl

To enter the project all you need to do is a sketch of an illustration you'd like me to do.
It can be about anything: your characters, my characters, someone else's characters, your sister, your dog, a robot, your sister's robot. Anything.
It may contain all the elements you want, it can be whatever you like, just, it hasn't to be a finished drawing: it has to be a rough, a preliminary sketch.

Adding Journals to your Featured GalleryCommunity WeekAdding Journals to your Featured Gallery1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Your featured gallery is the first page that your gallery visitors will see. Most of the time, we tend to display our very best pieces of work there. However, the featured gallery can also be used to showcase some journal entries that you want viewers to see immediately. These may be important announcements, advertisements, etc. It would be great to know this neat little trick of how to make journals show on your featured gallery.
To make sure that we're on the same page (excuse the pun!), this is what the Featured Gallery looks like:
Let's get started!
Step 1: Locate Your Journal
To locate your journal, type the title of the journal on the search bar and click on "Search Art." In this example, I will look for one of my projecteducate entries. Be reminded that you don't have to type the full title, some keywords would do.
Gaining Exposure To ArtGaining Exposure For Your Own Art:Gaining Exposure To Art4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Being active on the site is probably the best and most effective way to get yourself and your art seen. Leaving thoughtful comments on others art will often result in them coming to your page to find out more about you and see your art. Being involved and making friends will promt people to focus on you and your art giving you a bit more exposure. Leaving critiques, helping to moderate groups, posting in the forums, or simply chatting it up in the chatrooms. These can all be beneficial in getting you more exposure. Below I'd like to outline some of the wonderful ways, I believe, you can gain extra exposure to your art.
Joining groups which are relevant to your interests and the art which you make can be very helpful in getting your art out there and seen by like minded individuals. The introduction of groups by dA has made it very e
