Only a week left till the "Norouz" celebration in Persia.. each year we're celebrating the first of spring as the first day of our new year..
so happy Norouz to you all ..
Please List your used tools..
Many, still are not listing mediums in their comments on their work. You will be getting a link to read regarding this. We really hate declining work for such a silly thing but we can't keep asking each and every one what they used. May I remind you that we are nearly 9,000 members. You can imagine the time it takes for us admins.
Also, because the "asking" process may take too long, the works with a listed medium are being accepted faster..
So listing mediums means your artwork will get into our gallery faster than others!
We have also decided to change the Mentors Corner and critique folder a little bit.We've noticed that there are less and less submission to the critique folder. Maybe some don't realize it is there, others may notice that there are n

The Universal MandalasThe Universal Mandalas2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Mandalas are a universal symbol found in most of the world's cultures. They are often ritualistic and usually associated with spirituality. They are widely known as Hindu and Buddhist religious symbols but they can also be seen in the sand paintings of many aboriginal nations, in the layout of temples and churches, even in the stained glass rose windows of cathedrals.
While the symbolism behind the mandala is usually the unity and order of the cosmos, they can also represent the integrity of the self. During the more difficult periods of his life, Carl Jung drew a mandala every day. This helped him not only with the development of his own spirit but it also enabled him to refine his great theories of the psyche.

Below is the latest installment of my "favorite faves" -- the best, in my opinion, of works I faved recently. Some of these pieces you have no doubt seen; others you may be viewing for the first time. If you come across something you like please let the artist know -- give them some DA love in the form of faves and comments; also take a look at their galleries -- you might like their work so much you'll want to watch them!
Remember, everyone could use a little more DA love!
(Many of the works shown below are included in the galleries of two groups I recently started. Visit Ugly-Mug-Portraits http://ugly-mug-portraits.deviantart.com/ and Surreal-Landscapes http://surreal-landscapes.deviantart.com/ to view even more incredible art created by very talented DA artists in need of your support!)

A TRIBUTE TO REALISMA TRIBUTE TO REALISM2 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Why don't you just take a photo and a bunch of other stupid yet justified questions-
After years of being bothered by the same question , I have finally decided to write down my feelings and thoughts about this issue. And I think the timing is perfect considering I've somehow reached a stage of finding satisfaction in my own work; which will hopefully result in this journal being informative, interesting, maybe even educational, but above all stop people from being prejudice. If I had written it earlier it probably would have resulted in ranting and raging, at least to some degree.
I hope you will enjoy this read, but unless you think you can relate or learn more about some things, stop reading because this is going to be LONG
Let me start by asking you - what about your own work makes you feel like an artist? What makes any of us 'artists'? Many people imagine artists to be somewhat like mad scientists, but the

20 Years of Spider-Man ImprovementHey Friends--20 Years of Spider-Man Improvement3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I moved recently and things have been busy, so I won't be able to get a new comic up this week. I'm working hard on it right now though-- it's the biggest one so far-- the title of the essay is going to be: "Hug the Elephant." Please stay tuned!
In the meantime, I wanted to show you something special. I was digging through old sketchbooks while packing for the move and I found these little gems-- drawings of Spider-Man I made from age 6 onward. I've been drawing Spider-Man periodically for about 20 years!
Here's my progress!
Seeing improvement is fun, isn't it? Today I decided to draw another entry to the spiderman series:
I want to encourage you guys to revisit your work every month or so. If you are consistently making things, you'll be able to see a progression in your work, which helps you keep going.
See you next week!
A rantI've noticed this on the internet for a while, but only in the past 3 years or so has it really exploded.A rant2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why do people online feel the need to be "marginalized" or "oppressed"? There's this overwhelming current of "I'm special, I'm different than the rest, pay attention to me." This is present in fandoms, blogging, and social media in general. It's like being disadvantaged has suddenly become a thing that people want. It makes no sense to me.
For example, "bronies". Don't get me wrong, I think MLP is great, and I'm a pretty big fan. But I don't call myself a "brony". I don't wrap my identity up in the fact that I watch a cute show. I'm not "breaking societal norms" or "being oppressed by others" because I watch a damn show. It doesn't define me. I've seen bronies online talk about "coming out" to their family and friends about being a brony, and equating it to the struggles of LGBT people's "coming out". This is extremely offensive, whiny, and reeks of privilege.
Converting Sims2 and Sims3 to MMD - A rough guide.Here's short instructions on how I figured out to do this today. I knew how to get the textures but had no idea how to get the mesh, so yh.Converting Sims2 and Sims3 to MMD - A rough guide.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just got "SimPE" the sims2 package editor.
Then I opened the ".package" file downloaded from a sims2 site.
------Getting the 3D body---------
To extract the 3d body you need to use a sim2 package with a mesh file in it.
Click on the list of files that says GMDC, and on the lower left check all the parts in that box that says "Generic Rcol Editor"
Click on preview to see a small image of what it looks like.
Then click "Export" and use DirectX Exporter. Then import the x file into PMDeditor. I think you need to scale it "x10" to see it, not sure though. But yeah. Then you just need to assign the materials.
Open the package containing the textures you want.
Scroll down on the left and select "Texture Image"
