Fake itOne of the best pieces of advice I've ever received has been "fake it till ya make it." I took it to heart.Fake it3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I thought I was a good artist before I was. I acted like a professional before I was. I put out my first instructional video before I started working professionally. I was working professionally when I didn't know what I was doing. I acted like an extrovert when I was an introvert. I acted like a businessperson when I hadn't made a dime. I acted like a marketer when I hadn't sold anything.

“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”
— Ray Bradbury
So spoke the recently departed Ray Bradbury, a seminal (possibly the seminal) American fantasy & science fiction writer. Today, aspiring sci-fi and fantasy writers study his novels and short stories as their core ed

CONCEPT OF: Guild WarsWelcome to our periodic spotlight feature where we take a look at the concept art and design of a game or film. The intent here is to get the creative juices flowing, remind people what's out there and what's being done, and to not lose sight of the quality of professional work. We can also discuss what works and maybe what doesn't, what you dig, or what you DONT dig.CONCEPT OF: Guild Wars6 years ago in Personal More Like This

Should Today's Technologies Inspire?
We got to interview a visionary futurist with an eye on technology about what would inspire today's comic book writers to create our next superheroes with knowledge of real technological and scientific advancement.
You never know when it’s going to happen – that otherwise quotidian moment when you suddenly realize your entire thought process has just been tripped up and cast down a cerebral rabbit-hole destination unknown. Little did I know that what began as a typically pleasurable lunch with spyed and makepictures during the San Diego Comic-Con last year would morph into a mind-expanding mental wormhole voyage to the future courtesy of another guest at our table, JordanGreenhall, known to me only as the co-founder
Voices needed! Taking any!I have a few crowd scenes in the comic dub for the *cough* now ancient work that is Always Will Be.Voices needed! Taking any!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am doing this crowd scene: [actually i already made it i just need voices for the crowd effect X3]
they can be from your own personal ramblings to anything. i will most likely reverse all of the voices i use so they cannot be distinguishable anyway since this is an alien crowd.
i will not use ALL of the voices i receive. the ones i will use are the ones that sound the most natural and have good microphone quality!
IMPORTANT: please leave your deviantart username in the email, otherwise i cannot credit you for your voice and i will not be able to use it. it is also important that you record them in an MP3 or WAV format. video files like AVI, WMV or MP4 will not be accepted.
ALSO IMPORTANT: No profanity, crass/crude language or harsh words/phrases like "SHUT UP!" Also please refrain from using God's name in vain. :]

History of Children's Literature to the 1900's:iconarthistoryproject: :iconcrliterature:History of Children's Literature to the 1900's3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
This is a history of the development of children's literature. Some of the more philosophical points were touched upon by ThornyEnglishRose in her article "Children's Literature, Morality + Changing Ideals." For this article, I'm going to focus on the major historical events in the world of children's literature up to the turn of the 20th century. I can't possibly touch on this genre's rich history, so I encourage you to read more on the subject if the subject interests you.
Prior to the mid-18th century, children’s literature did not exist. While there were many stories popular amongst children, such as Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, they were written for an adult audience. Around this time, John Locke popularized the idea of each child’s brain as tabula
The genius of Miyazaki - Art HistoryIf you haven't heard his name, you must have heard about at least one of his creations. So, who's Miyazaki? It's easier to say who he's not.The genius of Miyazaki - Art History3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hayao Miyazaki was born on the 5th of January 1941 in Bunkyo, Tokyo, as a second of four sons. His father was a director in young Miyazaki's uncle's factory producing rudders for fighter planes - this is where Hayao became highly interested in aviation, which often appears in his films.
When Miyazaki was a little kid, his mother suffered from Pott's disease (sort of tuberculosis) and spent a few years in a hospital. Some says that a very similiar motif appearing in "Tonari no Totoro" ("My neighbour Totoro") was strongly inspired by that part of his life. Also, during his childhood, Miyazaki had to change his place of residence and switch schools several times, which influenced his films a lot, too.

Still, I totally missed the fact that about 2 or 3 weeks ago was my 10-year anniversary here on DeviantART. I joined on April 17th, 2003. My first two ventures into posting art online was on a forum (still around!) called AAW, (Akemi's Anime World,) as well as Elfwood. (Elfwood---hahahahahahaha. Oh those were the days... that make me weep.) I also posted on the Baka-Neko forums. A user there named Mathias (now CaseyLaLonde) talked me into posting on this crazy new site called DA. So I went with him. I chose the name fox-orian based on an old character of mine when I was a kid, but this particular spelling, (yes, the "a" in orian is a misspelling of "orion,") with the dash in the middle was the first appearance of this name and it kinda stuck since it was so unique. (Powerful in google searches!)
