Naruto chapter 577-78 OKOKWATWATWATFirst and foremost, IAMSOFUCKINGSORRY I'm been super busy, I'm moving out from this apartment and I'm going insane. I read all your comments and I will answer all of them soon (some of them are absolutely awesome and deserve a million rants) but I just have to update.Naruto chapter 577-78 OKOKWATWATWAT3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Get a hold of that flying panties if you still have them on. Mine? I lost them centuries ago.
I absolutely love, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the Uchiha interaction so far. Honestly, every week I've been laughing my ass off. I've been rolling in the deep sea of my tears as they stream down my smiling face and join my wet pants.
I actually felt an orgasm when I read this. DAT ANGRY FACE!ITACHI is just too fucking fabulous. He spits shit to Sauce but as soon as Kabuto says something along the lines of using his little brah as a reward... he goes fucking berserk on that bastard and he actually GROWLS.
ITACHI ACTUALLY GGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR'D!!!! NK
Chapter 576Well, are you all expecting my rant of rage and my stick ready to put it up Kishimoto's ass?Chapter 5763 years ago in Personal More Like This
Honestly I am blank. I am not precisely mad at Itachi but I'm not happy with him either. Sasuke acted just like he was supposed to, he really did pour his heart out and he desperately tried to get answers, we even got a visual depiction of this with him tailing his brah.
But Itachi? I don't know... at first I was pretty angry at him for being such an asshole, such a douchebag to Sauce but thinking it thoroughly and re-reading the chapter I am now wondering... isn't he repeating the same pattern from years ago? He is telling Sauce things to somehow hurt him, with the intention (I presume) to make him feel disappointed and a little less enthusiastic about his revenge.
In the first panel, when he is jumping and Sauce is looking at him from the ground we can see that Itachi is scared (maybe?). He is certainly hesitating and believe me when I say that little panels with seemingly insignific
Haunted - contest #3This contest has ended. The winners announement can be found here.Haunted - contest #33 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
From Shakespeare, through Stocker, Poe, Lovecraft, Murnau, Wiene, Tolkien... et ceatera, et ceatera... You may find this motif in many great pieces. It doesn't actually have to mean ghosts around - somnambulism presented in Cabinet of Doctor Caligari looks haunted despite the lack of spirits. On the other hand, there are few places scarier than the Dead Marshes described in the Lord of The Rings. Or the Eel Marsh estate from the recent movie. You surely have heard some local legends and tales, talking about unhappy brides and maidens wandering around a long time after their death or about a highwayman as from one of Loreena McKennitt's ballads.
In this contest, you're supposed to refer to one of such haunted pieces. It should be inspired by or refering to a legend, a novel, a movie, an existing (or not existing any more) place, even a song lyrics. Illustrating!

How to survive zombieapocalypse in 5 easy stepsCGHUB is no more. I guess most of you aren't bother but some people take it way too serious. Here are a few simple rules I follow over the years to keep my mind safe:How to survive zombieapocalypse in 5 easy steps8 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Save all the stuff you like. Now. Put it on your hard drive, burn on CD, print it out... whatever... just don't expect you'll see it online for the rest of your life. Pinterest, Evernote, Dropbox yada yada are nice but you don't own them. Use them but have a safe local vault too.
When I see cool picture I save it right away - 'right click, save as' habit goes on autopilot. I've got only 236 favourites on dA but my local dA storage has over 12,000+ images (chances are I've got your scribbles too ).
2. Organize. It's a quintessential, super important skill. Doesn't matter if you're student or busness owner. Say if you dump all your images into one folder, good luck with finding specific image later. I build a simple folder system to sort out my stuff. When I paint armor I just scan the armor refs (F

http://fav.me/d534voe Updated journal on the contest. Midnight tonight pacific coast time, start wrapping them up if you want in.
I joined Deviant Art I few years back bright eyed and hopeful. I tried to show case some talent I felt I had and over a period gained a handful of friends. Like most folks in the last several years the hard times came and with that I slowly faded away from this friendly art community. With some help from friends we reopen DreamOrchid's doors with a new website (www.dreamorchid.com), official DreamOrchid face book page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/DreamOrchid/189645937780364), and even a twitter account. Please feel free to like us if you wish. With all this said I'm back with a bang. I decided since I hit 20k views and with the renewal of a subscription to throw a contest.

In the Tutorial Treasury, you will find tutorials geared towards Photomanipulators and some that will deal with a broader subjects, such as lighting, colour etc. The tutorials will be from dA as well as from all over the web and in each episode, there will be 3 to 6 tutorials for your reading pleasure (any more than that I guess no one will have time to read anyway). If you find any good ones, shoot me a note so I can include them in the next installment!

Late Lesson LearnedWhile doing research for the new SYAC, I actually stumbled upon something truthful on TVtropes.org. Usually I take everything from that site with a grain of salt, but this one bit actually was surprisingly honest and truthful about webcomics:Late Lesson Learned2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Webcomics work on a very different set of standards than other fiction. Almost all webcomic authors are working pretty much entirely alone as they both draw and script their comics and most do not plan any further along than to the end of their current story sometimes not even that far.
Many of them try to adhere to a schedule they aren't really capable of meeting, resulting in them rushing to meet their deadline and making mistakes that should be avoidable. So many of the good 10% lack qualities standard in traditionally professional works. This can be because of the lack of editorial input as well as the lack of lead time. Not all webcomics suffer from this, though, and even the ones that do can still be interesting. Arguably, some str
Manip Challenges #001If you've been on dA for a while, you may remember the manip challenges I used to run. The original manip challenges were chat based 2 hour challenges, but as I don't have that kind of time any more (the event would be all day long, with 3 to 5 challenges in succession), I decided to adapt them to be two weeks long and not in a chatroom instead.Manip Challenges #0013 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

RANDOM SCI-FI - FEATURE #6Hello guys,RANDOM SCI-FI - FEATURE #61 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Today is a special day for me as I have finished to install my expo that will start on next Tuesday in my city near Paris, France. Big pressure, big event for me, one month cover period and 33 pieces printed. It cost my right arm in printing I would say but I think it's really worth the shot. That's the reason why today I feature pieces a bit randomly for lack of time even if I rather like to theme my feature.
Though some great artworks around, enjoy them, favs them and show thoses artists the love they deserve.

just talk,I want to discuss a thing, it is about the price..just talk,2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I believe that most of friends here almost have had met the same situation,
clients need you to provide the work price. I am not sure is it suit to talk
about this topic here or not, but I really want to talk.
Remember long time ago, when I graduated from university, a game company
asked me the freelance price to draw a poster. I gave them lower price than
the market. Of course, I got this freelance work. After I finished this project,
I was told off by my friend who work freelance and famous in the art territory,
seems to I destroyed the average price.
That was my thought:
[well, I just graduated from school and not famous at all, I can't ask for more
higher price.] Actually THAT IS TOTALLY WRONG.
Why I said that because recently I received a freelance chance to draw the
novel cover in my country, (A big publish company)They gave me the price
same as 10 years ago that I graduated from school, very low payment.
They said: I believe tha
