A book I finished a few months ago had been going through the
editing 'wringer' so to say. Once I finish with my current read
through I think I will be calling it finished, as I have edited it
The book is simple. It is a love story -not a romance- and it is
more of a novella. Not really long enough to call novel, not short
enough to call a short story.
Anyway, I've been thinking I would submit it to DA and start
distributing it for free. I wrote it with the intention of releasing it

the "tired of divas" rant.I'm fucking tired of sex symbols, of these divas, these women who have the "sexual predator" look. These women never smile and when they do they do it awkwardly, making themselves ugly (or uglier) in the process, since they have been told "it doesn't look good" on them. These fake women jump out at me from all over the place. Their image assault me from simple fashion catalogs, stock images, news sites, commercials, printed ads, the street.the "tired of divas" rant.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You can always see them in every picture, with their eyebrows in a V shape, with their puckered lips which the connaisseurs have already named "duck lips" and with their infamous "either you move towards me or i jump on you" look.
What is it with women and the need to reaffirm oneself through appearing to be sexy? Are you trying to leave your mark on the world through that kind of images? You think there's not enough fap material out there? Are you that naive to think that you will *BECOME* your idol if you masquerade as her? C

mobbing a bullyI felt the need to express my opinion on the matter.mobbing a bully2 years ago in Personal More Like This
ONCE UPON A TIME IN A FAR FAR AWAY LAND some artist says mean words in public. People feel like it's okay to mob the artist for this, to be mean to the artist for being mean, and some feel some kind of weird need for whatever reason to remove the artist from their watchlist and de-fave all of his works, and of course to go to their page and tell their hypocritical opinion about them even though they don't know the artist in person. Team Bullied forms. And then Team Bullied talks about how the newly formed Team Artist are monsters who can't empathize, who should be all shot for defending the meanie, the bully. And then Team Artist pulls up a wall around the artist, completely forgetting about that the artist is not innocent and probably needs advice or even a psychologist, or some kind of contact with a helpful human being, and then Team Chaos checks in to troll some to keep the flame burning.
And then POOF, people forget about the wh
Why I disappeared from dASimply put, I do not agree with the direction this site has been heading. I do pop on here occasionally to show my stuff and other tomfoolery, but for the most part I've grown distant from deviantART. That's not to say that I think this site is "bad" or anything, but it has become clear to me that the priorities of the site are not in line with what I am looking for in a community.Why I disappeared from dA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
One example? The dA T-shirt design contest. This is an example of speculative work. These "calls for entries" offer absolutely no benefit whatsoever to the entrants who aren't selected as finalists. And as I look this over, I realize that many of these contests run by deviantART are just that - speculative work. Companies get to pick and choose from the hard work done by hundreds if not thousands of artists and designers, and best of all, they don't have to pay anyone whose work they don't select.
My first few months in the world of a creative professional have been treacherous. Between spec work and unpaid
Recently...Recently, I'm trying to find some new challenges, techniques and concepts. I try to be better and better so I draw a lot. I'm looking for things which inspire me. It can be music, movies, books, legendst, animals, people, nature... everything. I hope that such sort of practise help me to became better artist. Drawing makes me happy and I have never been bored of it. My ideas come to my mind before I start drawing so I try to sketch them so that I can come back to them later. Yeah, I have a lot of fun with it. I create my world and I could show to other people and come back to fleeting thoughts which I stopped on paper.

ProgressArtistic slumps, and slumps in general, are a unpleasant part of life that many of us have had to endure. I think the impact of a slump depends upon how we handle it. As a few of you are aware, I have been in a slump since the 2012 holidays. To help relieve the effect of the slump I finally remembered advice I have given to and received from others:Progress10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Go to a museum/gallery/website and look at other art.
Clean your workspace for art making.
Make random marks, doodles, sketches. Just do. Making art for just the sake of making it can pull one out of a creative slump.
Surround one self with other creative people.
Do not over think art making.
Change your scenery (this could go along with cleaning one's workspace).
Take a journey. You do not have to go far. A journey could take take place near where you live.
I cannot remember all the suggestions so feel free to add to the list.
Though I have been in a slump, it does not mean I can stop work. I have agreed to paint a wolf statue (Howl for UW

Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... ~scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr
