Friends FeatureA new week ends..Do you have the feeling time runs, too? On monday my parents will be back and I will have to destroy the chaos of my house. It's worser than ever, because I had the chance to make chaos all over the house So I need a army of house elfs here. But to be honest I miss my dog, even when sharing your home with a dog means that your house will be full of hair (not only places he was, but also in the dishwasher, in your whole wardrobe and sometimes on your plate), you will make the tv advertising quiet, because your dog hates the coca cola spot, and you will also have very red cheeks, because you get the best canidate for wolfskin outdoor ware.Friends Feature3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Reverse Nice Guy SyndromeI'm just going to dub it "Reverse Nice Guy Syndrome" for now because I don't know if there's a proper title for it, but I've noticed that there's a peculiar little bug that hits various people (although certainly not limited to "guys") that causes them to genuinely believe other people (or certain individuals) "owe" them attraction. In short, it's basically like "Nice Guy" syndrome in that it involves a feeling of self-entitlement, but in this case it can sometimes be a somewhat backwards attempt at empowerment in that the "syndrome" causes people to believe that if another person does not feel attracted to them, physically or otherwise, it is automatically the other person's fault entirely, and they are labelled as "shallow" (or an asshole, jerk, bitch, haughty, etc.) simply because they do not have an attraction to or possess a desire to sleep with the "deserving" individual. Like the "Nice Guy," the person always feels like they are the victim in the situation, and in many cases isReverse Nice Guy Syndrome3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Win 50 Dollars in the new GA-HQ Art Contest!Win 50 Dollars in the new GA-HQ Art Contest!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Screenshot like self drawn illustrations like the ones above are the topic of this new Game-Art-HQ art contest
Due to other projects like Link's Blacklist being ongoing now and artists being working on it or the Final Fantasy tribute, this contest starts right now and endures till sunday the 3rd November
Recreating a screenshot with the own artstyle as seen in the megaman fanarts by Pertheseus above is something complicated and needs time and creativity, i guess that not only the results can be some great looking and unusual illustrations of video games, but also be a true challenge for participating artists.
rules: 1 entry per artist, no strong violence, no nudity, no fetish stuff, its up to you what kind of a screenshot you use as reference and also which game is totally your choice.
Anything from Pong to a modern or even upcoming game can be used. Only exceptions are scenes from a cutscene or movie. The art has to be new and mad

How to Become Popular on DeviantartSince I joined on deviantart I have been fascinated by many works.. Really nice works which have a lot of favourites and others which havent. I questioned myself why it could happen? Why works so wonderful and people so talented can be unknown in this community?How to Become Popular on Deviantart6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So, I decided to write this article.
For it, I sent this three questions for some pop artists:
- What's the secret to become popular?
- Why do some people become popular so fast, doing ordinary art, and others which do amazing art cant be popular?
- Is there any trick to become popular? Like watching a lot of people, faving everything you can, posting a lot of journals or promoting contests?
Some of them answered me so kindly and fast, others answered me in a way kinda rude and others didnt answer..
By now, I have some ideas, some quotes and I want to show you all information I got about it.
So, lets start:
First, I must say there are several ways to become popular. To make this article, I did a
Six Hours and CountingThis morning (or afternoon, depending on where you currently are), Skullgirls will officially be released on PC. Those of you who have preordered will be able to begin downloading -- but may I recommend you don't all do so at once, just to keep your local server nodes from going sluggish? (I remember buying a game on release date over Steam; the download was ridiculously slow due to the high level of demand; I think the only way I could get around it was by temporarily switching to a server in Iceland, or some other less populous country.)Six Hours and Counting2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Ninja Turtles by lukekeith
The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin

Need for ToleranceFrom Reddit:Need for Tolerance4 years ago in Personal More Like This
(This is pretty obvious so I didn't think I need to point it out but it seems that some people need to hear it: No, I don't think all religious people are like this. Yes, I do know these are extreme cases. But the point is that these are all recent events and we shouldn't live in a world where this kind of intolerance still exists. I've lost count the number of times that I've been harassed by Christians so the next time you see someone picking on gay people, saying atheists should be killed, don't be a bystander and just let it happen. Speak up. Stop a crime before it happens.)

Coming OutIt's true, I am Chinese and I was born this way.Coming Out3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At a young age I began to notice this difference. I was attracted to neither boys nor girls. In middle school, I liked math, and in college, I did my homework all night long.
Being Chinese is not a choice, it is genetic. There are risks to being Chinese because society cannot accept the union between a human and a textbook. I have Chinese friends who didn't need sex because they could foreplay instruments and get screwed by O Chem instead. Now, they don't have a social life and are shunned by others.
But fear not, life will get better. I grew up as a Chinese and I am proud of it (just look at my tumblr user name Maid-en-China ). There is the LGBTC (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Chinese) community to help you be comfortable with your Chinese orientation.
1,338,299,512 people came out as Chinese. You are not alone.

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem

Cyber-BullyingJust wanted to spread a little awareness on cyber-bullying, in light of recent events.Cyber-Bullying1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Recently, a friend of :iconNekohybrid: lost someone because of a cyber-bully, which led to suicide, so I think its a little relevant.
From my own experience, I would say cyber-bullying can be more dangerous than bullies in real life.
For a "physical" bully (someone who you actually meet, probably on a daily basis), it could mean harm on a physical, even mental level. Violence, insults are usually hurled, and it will be a strain on anybody. However, resolving the issue can be relatively simple; either remove the bully from your vicinity, or you remove yourself from his. Give it a few weeks of isolation, and chances are, that bully will be nothing but a bad memory.
But what if that bully can't be removed? Nor can you remove yourself? What if you are stuck in the same house as he/she is, along with his posse of friends who would love nothing more than to join in? Worse, people with absolutely no connect
