9 years....Man I just noticed I've been on deviant art for 9 years. Thats crazy. There was a while that I didnt post anything because it seemed to take page after page of category clarification just to post 1 piece of art. But in the last few years I really made up for it I guess. In that same amount of time I've accumulated over 100K page views. This seems pretty crazy to me, and I think more than half of those came in the last 2 years.9 years....4 years ago in Personal More Like This
If it proves anything, it's just that much easier to connect online with other artists around the world, and to present your work how you see it. Im glad Deviant art is providing this service. Im sure they all get paid well for the service, but it's taken years of refining and I think they've pretty much nailed it. Im curious to see how this continues to grow in the years to come.
Also, it proves how you can use these tools and websites to promote your work in ways never before possible. I started a sketch blog last July, and in 6-7 months it's generated over 100

It'll happen to youSpooky words from Abe SimpsonIt'll happen to you2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's safe to just assume that most people in their mid 20's right now were raised by The Simpsons
I know it's still on, but i have no idea if its still popular or if anyone still watches it..
But in my slice of time growing up in the 90's, Simps was on every single day! Several times a day!
After school, by channel flipping, i could lineup 6 episodes every night
and I did!
But I recently saw an episode again, that i loved as a kid, and scared the crap out of me as an adult
When the episode aired in 1996, i was just 10 years old, just as Bart was.. is.. permanently..?
I identified with the kids because my own parents didn't have a clue what was cool.
In 1996, i was Bart
Now i am 27, 17 years later i watched this episode again
and it all rang familiar to me for a horribly different reason!
I HAD BECOME HOMER!
Now I too find myself perpl
PET PEEVEI see a lot of artists or even non-artists that put themselves down. Constantly.PET PEEVE4 years ago in Personal More Like This
As an artist, one of the worst things you can say to me is "Wow, I could never do this! I'm gonna quit art now 8(((("
I've probably guilty of saying that exact same thing at some point! And multiple times, too! But I stopped, because what does saying that even do, really?
That is not a compliment. It makes me feel bad that my work has made you want to stop doing something. You know how I got to the point I am at now? I got past those feelings, got past my self-depreciation, and worked my ass off.
Art is not all fun and games. It can be, but it's also something that I have dedicated myself to for years. I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil- at currently 18 years old, that's a while. Not as long as other, much older, artists, but I'm still improving. We all still are. That artist you look up to? He or she is still learning. Drawing is a constant development process: it never ends. Ever.

My thoughts on Skyrim so far...Just started playing a few days ago. Here are my thoughts.My thoughts on Skyrim so far...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Warning Capslock and cussing ahoy!
There's nothing quite like a nice stroll on a cool, crisp morning with a NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
I have to work, bills to pay, walk the dogs, go shopping, and I also need to NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
Haven't eaten all day, I should probably have some NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
FYI: If you walk past a flowery bush IRL and your first instinct is "Harvest mountain flowers," you've been playing too much Skyrim.
Approximately half of Skyrim's populace used to be an adventurer just like me, but then they all took arrows to the knee . which is funny because I've taken multiple arrows to the head and that hasn't stopped me from running tits first into one adventure after another and another . And another . AND ANOTHER OMHFG THERE ARE SO MANY !@#$%^&*ing SIDE QUESTS.

Welcome to CorusTo our newest recruit,Welcome to Corus4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Good on you for choosing Corus! Seriously, it's pretty much the best region. No joke. Let me give you the run down; Corus is pretty dry and hot, but it works out in our favour, since it toughens everyone up in no time at all! And "tough" is what Corus is all about- if you're a slacker, you might want to go and sign up in one of the sissy frilly froo froo regions, since Corus will eat you up and spit you out.
So let me tell you a bit about the different places in Corus! Firstly, the biggest place here is Arcelor. That's where I'm based, and where the majority of high profile battles are held.
And don't give me any sass about how the HQ is an abandoned steel works factory, 'cause I'll smack you. This place is fantastic! We converted the whole thing into a battle academy, so anyone who is serious about taking on the league should enrol here. We got dorms, it's cool. It has huge halls for battles, and the old refineries are great obstacle courses for training.

It to me adds new feeling to the world of W.I.T.C.H. and I wanted to use some type of effect in the art submitted so I thought it would be great if some of the art entries had some characters of W.I.T.C.H. under the spell of the horn of hypnos (i.e. hypnotized forever etc, etc).
