AWJTK comic - Bursztyn's name issuesSooooo...AWJTK comic - Bursztyn's name issues1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As I noticed, massive tons of people have problems with spelling/remembering Bursztyn's name.
Actually I had a hard choice to make before starting my AWJTK comic.
As you may already know, I'm from Poland. I created Puc and Bursztyn, when I was, like, 5 years old and didn't even know a single word from english
While Puc doesn't mean anything, Bursztyn is a polish word. It's not even actually a name, at least not for humans. Some people use dat word for naming their pets, but it is used very rarely.
"Bursztyn" means just "amber", as the gemstone amber - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amber
In the past I DID translate his name, calling him Amber, but then all the people thought he was a girl, while actually he is a boy. Amber is a girl name, we all know it.
So that's why I decided to leave it in it's oryginal language.
I know it's pretty hard to spell and to remember

What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)Okay, due to some flaming I've received because I brought art plagiarism to the attention of an art plagiarist... I've realized that there is more than a good number of people who don't know what art plagiarism really is--so, I've written an informative journal for you all. It's broken down into several easy to understand sections.What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)6 years ago in Personal More Like This
http://snapesgirl34.deviantart.com/art/The-Ultimate-Tutorial-2-0-46849943 You might also get a good tl;dr out of reading this amazing tutorial. Hopefully, if my journal's not enough to understand the meaning of art plagiarism, then the tutorial will be (or vice versa, maybe my journal will help you understand the tutorial more).
What Is Art Theft?
What Is Tracing?
What Is Art Paraphrasing?
Why Can't I Use Other People's Art as "Reference" to Make My Own Art?
How Can I Avoid Being Called on Art Plagiarism?
If you have any questions after reading this journal, or would like to debate with me,

Hello Deviants, Welcome to week 14 of deviant365!
Last week, we asked you guys to design your own dream garden either by writing about it, or drawing. I'm happy to announce that the two lucky deviants are Abstractioncat and DecepticonFlamewar! Who have won themselves 200 apiece plus a feature on the deviant365 homepage.
Sonia has originally been a member of deviantART for 2 years including other accounts, but is well integrated within the community and always producing very interesting and unique works. Take the entry from last weeks task, she has literally designed the garden of her dreams in a very surreal world, very dreamlike to compliment most of her work.

Today I learned that asking someone to please stop complaining and whining on my page is the same as hate mail. xD Kids making new meanings for stuff never gets old. And apparently it gives you a low maturity level aswell. D8 what am I missing here?
Remember people dont tell others how to behave, it makes you immature and a hater. I knew I shouldnt trust my parents and teatchers, they are so immature and old compared to me so they cant go tell people how to behave.

Before we get into the thick of things, we didn’t have a photo of our huge plasma screens hanging from the convention ceiling to share in our Day 1 recap, so we vowed to get that to you today! The 11 foot wide screens stream amazing works of art from Artists' Alley participants to the whole convention floor!
In Comic-Cons past, the foot traffic In Artists’ Alley got busier and busier as the week progressed, and this year is no exception. There’s something magical about speaking one-on-one with a deviant, learning their experiences, hearing how they started as an artist, and how far they’ve come. It’s an emotional connection to make with someone who was practically a stranger a few moments ago -- and then you realize you’re not really strangers when you

The Holiday Card Project returned in 2013, and it was a total hit! We received over 5,000 cards from 2,000 deviants in more than 60 different countries! A ton of deviants reached out to us, interested in helping to distribute cards to their local hospitals! With these volunteers' help, we distributed cards to 22 hospitals in the US and abroad!
The majority of the hospitals we worked with distributed the cards themselves, either through their own volunteers or by placing cards on the food trays of patients. We received letters of thanks from some hospitals, and a few even shared our cards on their Facebook pages! One thing all of the hospitals and patients had in common: they loved your cards!
One of our biggest surprises this year came from Bank of America! A deviant who works there got word of our project and told some people around the cor

IdolizationIdolization is a strange and dangerous thing.Idolization1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.
That it will inspire you in some way. And that you'll be able to do the same.
Unconsciously, we all build images of our idol.
It's human nature, I guess. We fill in all the blanks. The things that we don't know from this person.
Because an idol isn't a person anymore at that point. It has become an ico
