The ginger thought it would be pretty funny to set Pennsylvania up on a date with the thorn in his side, New York. He sent the fake text to Penn that same day, as if it was Delaware. Boy is he going to get the shock of his life.
Penn arrives at the disclosed location, his face beaming with joy as he holds a bouquet of flowers in one hand, and a box of tastykakes in the other. Of course they are butterscotch krimpets, the kind he knows his dear friend loves. Upon arr

Do-it-Yourself Photography StudioPhotography equipment is expensive, I think everyone knows that. Basically with any bit of equipment you could usually buy a good point-and-shoot camera. And same goes with the studio gear. If you're planning to make a home studio with "official" gear you could easily end up spending several thousand dollars. But on the other hand, you can easily get started with far less expensive setup if you're willing to use gear that is not meant for photography.Do-it-Yourself Photography Studio7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This article gives you few examples what you could actually use as studio gear, how to use them, and if necessary, how to build them. I will share you my experiences on how different things have worked for me. These aren't only options, just some examples. With some creativity you can probably think of better gear for some specific jobsm than I have. Just remember one princible: there are no style points given for the setups. If it's outside the frame, it doesn't matter how DiY it looks as long as it gets the job done.
Some things we should talk aboutThis journal is here to highlight, debug and bust some myths for you all of stuff that goes on ALL the time, and is in part spurred by some recent events that leave me somewhat baffled and perplexed over some of the behavior we've been recently seeing across the DA communities, particularly Stock & Resources, and Photomanip since we work so closely together (and its apparently time I wrote a new wall of text to you all.)Some things we should talk about5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Every community has them. Those constant "issues" that make people angry and frustrated. Sometimes they can be easily solved with a little effort, and other times something just snaps and causes reactions that are far and away over the top. Here are some of our top faves.

Hope these couple weeks before the holidays kick in are treating you all well! All of us in college know just how hectic finals week is...hang in there!
I thought that in light of the season, we talk about some American Christmas culture during the Civil War (including how the ladies and soldiers celebrated in a time of warfare).
Also, I encourage holiday themed Civil War art at this time! But, no pressure! Let's celebrate!

Robert shot an action-packed short film called Two Scoops, starring twins Lola and Lucia who operate an ice cream truck by day and happen to also be monster-slayers. Fans contributed to the project by submitting films, Tweeting their ideas for super-weapons, creating the fiercest monsters, and sending in their photos to appear on Missing Person posters.
We're excited to announce that the collaboration is now complete! You can see the finished film right here, along with the best contributions from fans, and documentary footage to tell the story of the project.

Today marks Chicago's Demisemiseptcentennial, so forgive me if I completely dorky about this xD
So yeah 175 years sounds pretty old but it amazes me just how far Chicago has gotten in just a short amount of time. Every other world class city is much, much older and Chicago can be considered the youngest of the world's great cities. So yeah, it's more celebrating it's youth than it is it's age.
So if you guys are rolling your eyes at this, you can ignore this xD

Begging For CommissionsBegging For Commissions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
~ ♥ ~
Frankly I find it exceedingly sad that this far into my artwork life on deviantART I've got to make a journal about people begging me for commissions work. This is not a beef at everyone; plenty of people on here actually have manners and the sense enough to understand that when I state my commissions are closed they are actually closed and I'm not being bloody minded! When I send out a note replying to a commissions request I am being extremely honest with the amount of workload I have going on in real life; I have three jobs people, I work so damn hard all the time and believe me, with that workload comes a lot of stress. I won't beat the cow to death with this, all I am asking is that people be realistic with what they ask of me. I can't "do just one" commission on top of a workload of 20+ gifts and prizes for the competitions I placed before Christmas. It just will not happen. So as op

Good Morning from the (snowy) UK!
Just a mini update of where I'm at really (:
Book cover was designed, designed, designed and re-designed (just for good measure!) and we're finally at a point where the author likes it, it's going to the print house and will be published and on the shelves by the middle of the year!

The First of (Many?) Civil War StoriesI just wanted to get rid of that old journal entry really...The First of (Many?) Civil War Stories3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I thought that I'd give all my watchers interested in the Civil War a little story that I found funny/lovely while reading Stephen W Sears' 'Chancellorsville' the other day.
One time in early 1863, after the Battle of Fredericksburg when the Confederacy were still in their winter camps, there was a huge snowfall which a lot of regiments from the deep states of the South weren't used to. During this cold period, I think it was a South Carolina regiment formed into proper battle formation and marched to a nearby Louisiana regiment's camp. And, after forming the appropriate battle lines and so on and forth, they proceeded to have a large snowball fight. Officers were on horses and charging about and apparently, General Lee got hit by a flying snowball at one of these particular fights.
That just made my day.
So I don't really know what that says about me!

anyways, I have noticed so many people trying to the best. Trying to get those most views, favs, and DD's (dont get me wrong, DD's are awesome!) but I sometimes feel some have lost the reason why we are here.... Why are we here, you ask? For the art and love of it! We are here for friends and help too! I find it crazy and sad that some are just here to get popular and make the best art.... I know there are TONS of us who are not like this and I love you all! We just need to keep it in our heads that because we love art, we are here creating masterpieces everyday and loving every bit of it! Who gives a fuck about it being perfect and having more favs! I sure don't! As long as you like it, that is all that matters! Critiques are an awesome thing, but they need to be done right!

Anyway, until I do, anything you want to see? Not doing a certain number of request spaces, just ask me to draw something so I've got things to do. Please. Seriously, I need some stuff to do between homework and resume building. So yeah, fire away.
This is very random butWhy do people make one OC for Native Americans?This is very random but3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I ask this because I was looking at a lot of state OCs yesterday and a lot of them said that they were related to Native America. Or their mother or cousin was Native America.
People do realize there is like 500+ native tribes in America. And in North America, there are over a thousand.
So...it doesn't make sense to make ONE Native America OC. I also find that to be very ignorant and offensive.
Anyway, g2g visiting my Great Grandma.
Boy does time fly.Hello everyone! I've been so inactive lately I thought it was time for a catch-up journal! It's nearing springtime now and I've already been accepted into a few colleges. I'm really relieved about that. I got into Maryland Institute College of Art, which is one of my top schools, and Minneapolis College of Art and Design which was really last on the list but it's good to have as backup. I have yet to hear from the others. Even though MICA's been my dream school since I was 12, and it's the most convenient option for me, I still can't decide. I'll have to see if I get accepted into Pratt or not.Boy does time fly.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
