Do you want to win a tablet Wacom Bamboo?"
Yes, I'm having a drawing contest and first prize will be a Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch CTH 460 tablet (second hand but fine,still had guarantee in fact when I got it and used it like 2 times so..), there are also premiums, points, features, etc etc to win. If you already have a tablet but know of someone that would love it, you can enter on their behalf. The tablet will be shipped WORLDWIDE.
(quick explanation: I am visually impaired. A friend of mine gave me her tablet since she had a better one hoping I would somehow manage it even with my wonky eyes. Well I couldn't so if it interest someone..)
And now you wonder, what kind of contest?

Bitching About April Fools on DeviantartLets get a little perspective, peopleBitching About April Fools on Deviantart2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I Know that it is common knowledge that the art-world generally regards deviantart as a beckon of professionalism and respectability. To see something like this while browsing for serious prospective employees on another busy work sunday on a serious talent search site that is totally serious business guys is totally going to get you banned from the art world and loose you all the jobz you would have gotten that day! This is an outrageous prank! This is not what DA is about!
Come on guys, perspective.
If your gallery is so important to your life and career that you can not stand to have even one of your precious thumbnails momentarily obscured lest every employer decide that cats are no longer the "in" thing this year and black list you from the industry, you probably shouldn't be on DA. Yes, some people get a lot of traffic from DA, but lets be honest, this is not an appropriate site in which to host any kind of serious portfolio. Fine,

Is Invisible Children Trustworthy?Since I posted the Kony 2012 video, a lot of people have been telling me that the organization is not to be trusted with donations and is under investigation (but raising awareness is still good). I don't know how much of it is true, but it's good to at least take it into consideration.Is Invisible Children Trustworthy?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's one of the many messages that people have been telling me. Please read carefully and judge for yourself:
" I do not doubt for a second that those involved in KONY 2012 have great intentions, nor do I doubt for a second that Joseph Kony is a very evil man. But despite this, I'm strongly opposed to the KONY 2012 campaign.
KONY 2012 is the product of a group called Invisible Children, a controversial activist group and not-for-profit. They've released 11 films, most with an accompanying bracelet colour (KONY 2012 is fittingly red), all of which focus on Joseph Kony. When we buy merch from them, when we link to their video, when we put up posters linking to their website, we support the organization.
Religion destroys your humanityYeah I've been meaning to talk about this since it's been bothering me. It's amazing how so many people lose their mind when it comes to religion. Okay so if you remembered I had mentioned it on these http://supyloco.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4k06yb http://supyloco.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4k07aa http://supyloco.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4k07jm . Now that part is interesting for various reasons though it's not the most talked about nor is it the worst in the sense that it's not as defended or talked about. You know my opinion on rape and I find it disgusting that the bible is just so lenient when it comes to the rapist and instead is punishing the victim. But no this is not the point of this journal. The point of this journal is not point out the many flaws of scripture but to address the people who make excuses for it. That's the name of the journal. So one of the most interesting story of the bible is that of Abraham.

another account + My thoughts on cheatingHere's my account where I'll post ugly shit. Just letting you know, I'm not leaving this account.another account + My thoughts on cheating2 years ago in Personal More Like This
..My tender skin feels so nice against your dishsoap
I hate cheating, and dishonesty. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm NOT a freaking saint. I have lied and cheated before, and I know better now. To be completely fair though, I don't think you can go through life without cheating/lying to protect yourself. The world is NOT ideal like that. What bothers me a lot though, is when I come in after school and use my time to get help from the teacher to attempt to understand the material I don't know, and put time and effort into my studies in order to get a good grade and keep my family happy. Today in Chemistry we had a quiz, and when we were done the teacher not only gave us the answer to grade the quizzes for her at the end, but she worked them out on the board too. My neighbor who obviously made a bad grade from the beginning because she's always sleeping during cla
The most amazing webcomic, and...Hey guys! quick update on my life: I just spent a motherload of money on getting pictures and photos from this last year printed, some of which are of my nephew, to send to my grandparents who are rather out of the loop due to dial-up internet (yes, that still exists, sadly) connection and old age. XD and other than that, I'm just drawing, working, eating, sleeping.....yeah. that's about it. :3The most amazing webcomic, and...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

To All Aspiring Artists Out There........http://vimeo.com/85040589To All Aspiring Artists Out There........6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So often, I get people asking for my secrets, praying to some god to give them what I have, asking me for my Photoshop brushes, joking that I must have sold my soul to Satan, that I must be cheating somehow, asking what programs I use in hopes that there is some magic "art button."
I'm sorry but...... No.
There are no secrets. No god and no devil had anything to do with it. There are no magic Photoshop brushes. There is no magic art button. There are no magic programs that will do the work for you. You can get Poser- some of the images that come out of it are lovely and if that makes you happy, fine. But if you want to do more than play with 3D paper dolls, to make your own art, to realize the wildest imaginings of your dreams exactly how you see them....
THERE. ARE. NO. SHORTCUTS.
Do you know how I got here?
Lots of it. Maybe I have some inborn talent? I don't know. But really, it's mostly WORK. You want to get good at something? Want it more tha

I'm so proud!So, get this; I was on Tumblr the other night (as always) and I follow a blog called "ShittyDAart" or something. In short; it's dedicated to "shitty" art found here on dA. We're not talking about WTF pictures that have good art but "badly drawn" pictures. Yeah, something like that.I'm so proud!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, the blog-owner answered someone's ask where they felt the need to inform the blog-owner and their followers about something that none other than yours truly WROTE. Yep, that's right; they mentioned one of my serial killer-fics. "Mama Said", to be exact. Let's just say that, rather than getting mildly pissed off (like I would have back in the day), I just sat back and thoroughly enjoyed the complete butthurt of these people. I don't remember everything they wrote but they said something like "I wish I was kidding", which happens to be the standard line for people without enough of a sense of humor to even understand that a fic about a time-travelling serial killer wasn't supposed to be serious in any

We have seen a lot of people criticizing, parodying, lampooning and trolling Tom Preston lately and lets face it, he deserves it and it's totally awesome. However Tom Preston, as much as he likes to piss and moan about it, actually benefits greatly from the TP hate-mill. It increases his page views/revenue and probably attracts sympathetic new fans and vocal defenders in the process.
This situation is great, it's win-win. TP gets more attention, money, pity, sycophantic ass-pats and the opportunity to paint himself as the hapless victim of internet evil. While we get an abundant source of "Lulz" which go some way to subverting the very dangerous and destructive rage we experience when we read TP's unfunny shit.
Now we completely understand wanting Tom Presto
