dear dA: age is irrelevantthis recent deviantart poll "At what age does an artist have the most artistic freedom?" is a condescending and narrow-minded question.dear dA: age is irrelevant4 years ago in Personal More Like This
often i see people have opinions about age and how it relates to art. some say that they are too young or too old to do one thing or the other.
well, i have not been on this planet very long, i can't speak for everyone and everyone's circumstances are different. but i will say this.
you are alive. and since you are, there is nothing that can stop you from your freedom to express yourself through art or anything that you have a passion for - especially your age.
don't let anyone's preconceived notions about your social status stop you from doing something that is so much bigger.
a blank canvas doesn't care how old you are, where you came from or what inspires you. you will always be able to fill it with what inspires you no matter what.
How Toph's bloated blob is madeHello watchers <3 You gave me the signs so here I am with this (simple?) guide in how Toph's hair was done.How Toph's bloated blob is made4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Can I also say something unrelated.. I think dA should really upgrade this journal thing with an easy image uploader function? so I don't have to upload in another database and imgsrc every photo in here. After all, having pictures in a journal is one of the few attractions and entitlement to a paid subscriber besides a customize journal, right?
Ok that aside D:
I used many unorthodox ways to do my costumes so hmm.. please don't laugh orz ...
So i bought a straw bowler hat from Daiso (for only SG$2), and then wrapped strips of paper around it until is all covered, like a half sphere but fuglier. Please use black coloured paper. And of course, please buy a hat accordingly to your head proportion. Don't repeat the mistake of making it too big like mine =_=
This is how the underside looks like. I arrowed a wire-comb there because it is how I secured this blob to the main wig late
Have a mac? Want SAI?Look no further.Have a mac? Want SAI?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Mac came out with a new application called Inkling this year, I JUST found out about it. There's a free version of it called Inkling Light. The only downside I'm seeing thus far is you can only have 3 layers. BUT if you end up liking the lite version it's ONLY ten bucks for the full version where you can have as many layers and crap as you want.
It seems to be Apple's solution for Mac users who have been requesting SAI to be able to work for Macs. Which, of course, it won't truly without bootcamp and parallels because SAI's tablet pressure system is separate and doesn't work with mac systems. yadda yadda can't word that properl-y Not that big of a techy.
Either way this seems a great solution, and 10 bucks verses 65 dollars? (which is SAI's price) and I don't feel like doing a shit ton of illegal downloading and taking up a crap ton of my laptops space by using bootcamp and parallels and what not.
Thought I'd share this AWESOME news.

The LADY’s Summer Kuroshitsuji Plushie Giveaway*****NOW IS OFFICIALLY CLOSED!! WINNERS ANNOUNCED SOON*****The LADY’s Summer Kuroshitsuji Plushie Giveaway3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
You read right. I'm hosting a Kuroshitsuji Plushie Giveaway.
Since it's summertime, and a great time for a contest of sorts, I'm going to be giving away FOUR custom made mini plushies of any character from the Kuroshitsuji series, open to all fans.
All you have to do to enter is comment in this journal (you can fav if you want ) and tell me who your favorite character is, and why. Once the contest closes, I'll randomly pick four people (drawn from a list I'll print out once everyone's had the chance to comment), and they'll get to have a plushie of the character they named, in whatever outfit they choose.
Simple as that. Four fellow fans will get to have a Kuroshitsuji plushie, like the many I've already made:

The Avengers - ReviewHonestly I don't have much to say other than it's just really awesome. You don't need to have seen Captain America, Iron Man 1 and 2, The Hulk, or Thor to understand what's going on, but it most certainly does help.The Avengers - Review3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Avengers is probably one of the most epic movies I have seen since the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Harry Potter. It's up there. It's not perfect, and some moments seem to drag on a bit (mostly around the middle), but every key moment is accentuated properly, every line delivered in such a way that you don't miss out on what's going on, every action scene composed in a way you aren't confused, and overall the whole thing is just a joy to watch.
What's really fun about this movie is that they don't hold back. Ever. Everything you want to see in a movie about the Avengers is pretty much up on this screen. You wanna see Thor and Iron Man duke it out? You got it! You wanna see an army of aliens attacking a city? Got it. You wanna see Tony Stark deliver hilarious banter aga
Permissions and PricksI tend to think of myself as a nice guy. Most of the time, if someone asks if they can use Croc, I generally give them permission, as long as they credit me as being the owner of Chaos Croc. I'm not too picky on things like that, except when/if the subject matter is something I'm not comfortable with.Permissions and Pricks3 months ago in Personal More Like This
That being said, I've heard of people taking some of the concepts I've come up with, and commissioning others to draw them. Concepts like the various Eggman outfits I designed, or alternate takes on official characters. I realize that I don't own the rights to anything Sonic related, but I'd still like to be credited to designing them. And, hell, at least let me know you're doing it, so I can see it for myself!
As for the second topic, lately I've been having...issues...with certain people. Obviously, I won't name names here, since I want to keep a semi-professional attitude. However, I will touch on two things here.
One: commission notes. When I do a commission stream, the process goes a

I don't want people to stop drawing. Anyone, no matter how doofy or weird.
Bad art is still art, and I love bad art.
I don't hate ANY of the art I redraw or fav. All of it brings a smile to my face and it's always a sadness when it gets deleted due to flooding.
I don't redraw things to "make a statement" or "stick it" to someone, I do it because it's funny to me. And sometimes it's funny to me to redraw something by an obvious bait account or something "not that bad".
None of my work is malicious, it was all done with a light heart.
Woofs are for shits and giggles, a woof is not a weapon.
Bad art doesn't lower DA's quality, NON-art lowers its quality. Screenshots, traced bases, demotivationals, photobucket dumps, these are anti-art. Nothing new was created, only submitted. In the case of traced bases; de-created and submitted.
So please settle down a bit when you

At deviantART, we have spent the past 11 years building a place where artists can share and discuss their work and get inspired by the work of their contemporaries. A noble cause, for certain, but we would like to be so much more to our beloved community of brilliant creatives. Starting today, deviantART will also be a means of inspiration in an entirely new way with financial support for art.
On 3 month cycles, deviantART will accept applications from artists seeking to fund art-related projects. A panel called the Creative Grants Board will pick those projects that they believe will benefit particularly from a Grant and give those artists the support they need to make it happen. The lucky few who are chosen to receive Grants will also be given a beautiful accolade on their deviantART Profile Page to celebrate their succes

Children are innocent. Don't subject them to your transphobia or hatred. Let the adults shoulder that if you really have to throw your faeces at someone.
All I can think of is how hurt these poor little girl scouts must be. They already deal with enough, being born in the wrong body. Now you're telling them that they're bad people for something that they can't help? I'll tell you what. I wouldn't feel safe sending my daughter into a girl scout troop with a bunch of hateful Bible thumpers. I'd much rather send my daughter in with a troop that offers positive messages of un-conditional love and acceptance for mankind.
Keep in mind that the same group is trying to boycott the Girl Scouts

If you're interested in competing to have your icon be the next icon for this group, please leave your entry here!
Bonus points for having Micle (Grand Kec) and one of the yellow-eyed Zoroark from the current story... unless you have a better creative vision, of course! Animated is preferred. You can make neat little small animations with Photoshop, or even put images into Flash to make them. A good tip is to make art 3-4x larger than it will be in the icon, but don't get too detail heavy. Constantly zoom out to make sure it looks good.
Only requisite is using the logo from the doujin and current avatar: http://purplekecleon.deviantart.com/art/PMD-e-Doujin-2-318457750

strange day..Me and the rest of the people in my group were assigned an already skinned cat (dead obviously). After we took the poor thing out from its plastic bag, we named it Gary. Before we could start dissecting the dead kitty, the fire alarm went off. We had our lab gear on so we pretty much stood there like dumbasses, asking each one another if we should change or not. The teacher just told us to go outside and line up in our designated spot were we always go to when there's a fire-alarm.strange day..3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So the whole class stood outside the courtyard, dressed in this mad scientist get up. People were looking at us weird and asked us what we were doing in class. When we told them, they flipped out. So yeah, while we were waiting outside for the whole fire drill to end, we all screwed around in the courtyard like a bunch of jerks. Most of the guys were chasing other people around with their greasy gloves (we were draining cat juice earlier). The teachers got pissed but they didn't want to interfere, I'm guessi
