AsexualityAlright, considering that this worked out very well last time and I'm bored I thought that I'd talk about another facet of my personality. I don't know if I would call it unusual, because apparently about every one out of a hundred people are asexual...? Honestly, it feels like a lot less and I'll get into that. For those who don't know, I am an aromantic asexual. You can be one without the other, although I don't know how common that actually is. It seems very simple to me and a very easy concept to grasp: people who are asexual do not have a sexual attraction to people of either gender, and people who are aromantic do not desire a romantic relationship with either gender. But honestly, anyone who has gone through middle school can tell that... life without sexual goals, desires, or interests is very different. Literally every conversation I had in the seventh grade was this:Asexuality3 months ago in Personal More Like This

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

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

In a few days, May will arrive and my last weeks here will spiral down into a chaotic mess of such busy-ness. While I'm excited and glad that it's finally May, I'm also incredibly nervous of what I'll be going through between May 1st to May 13th. If you're interested on my soon to be lack of activity on here for about 2 weeks, I'll sum up the reasons for you in 3 simple stars!

Thanks to recent advancements in neurological science, we're unveiling a revolutionary new platform in artistic creation. Our device uses touch-sensitive pads built into your existing keyboard and mouse to monitor your brainwaves and transmit them directly to our site. Excited?

It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

Using HTML on deviantARTUsing HTML on deviantART4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking.
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place?
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

So you want to do commissions?A basic guide to setting up commissionsSo you want to do commissions?4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When it comes to commissioning, there is so much that needs to be decided, arranged and thought of that it can all appear a bit daunting at first.
However: when following a couple of basic guidelines, setting up commissions really is not as hard as you think!
If you find the article informative, please it.
First things first
So you have decided you want to start doing commissions. That's great!
The first thing to do is to determine what you want to offer.
Do you want to offer drawings, or designs?
Will you be coding journal-skins for people, or will you be pixeling?
Take a look through your gallery and try to determine what you do best and what you like to do the most.
Because that will most likely be what you'll be offering.
Stick to what you're good at.
Don't promise what you can't deliver when someone is paying you for it.
Now that you've mo

I'm putting almost every sword into storage and yes, planning to make more of them. I'll tell about that later on. New Elucidator is basicly sold and Kurikara is still reserved for the DA user who commissioned it, BUT if she isn't getting the money together by 31.5.2013, I will sell it for anyone who gives me the money. I have given her time 6 months to pay it. It's plenty of time and I know that money isn't growing in trees. I do know that fact too well.
One good thing is that I return into work 6.5.2013. Not into my original work station, but I hope that I could return in there too soon. Work is work and they pays me to do my job. I have been layoffed around 3 months now, but I have s

I wish I could destruct each individual model so I could fathom what makes a Helghast a Helghast. Perhaps one day when more screenshots come out (highly unlikely, it is nigh impossible to find Killzone references) I will produce some epic stuff.
So today I ask you Comrades. What ideas have you wanted to draw, but never had because something about it threw you off?
I have always wanted to draw the Hazard Troopers (hur hur wonder why) from Killzone 3.

(Yeah, that's right, I disappear for something like a month and the first thing you get from me is a fangirl rant. Typical.)
Let me explain you a thing. On tumblr, there are three main fandoms, known as SuperWhoLock. Supernatural, Doctor Who and Sherlock.
"Hiatus" is the name for the period of pure torture between seasons/series.
Now, at this very moment, all three of these fandoms are on hiatus for the same amount of time.
Hence, "The Hellatus".
When a fandom is on hiatus, some crazy shit comes out of the chaos. So three of the top and most insane fandoms? Eesh, you do not want to go there.

Thank YouSo apparently some people enjoy my work. It's just... I just don't know what to say. I mean, I write kinda lot, but I don't really show my stories to anyone because... well, they suck. I need a lot of practice but sometimes I need a bit of encouragement to do so and now people actually like what I do. I don't know if every amateur artist feels the same way, but I feel like it's worth it. It's worth spending the night with writing down the crazy things my imagination draws up. If my dream can't be fulfilled and I can't be a real writer when I "grow up", I just wish to have people around me who I can entertain with these silly things.Thank You2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Elsewhere, I've been meaning to do a short rant dealing with how I feel retrospectively having gone to art school. I've talked about having gone before, and I've given some advice about choosing a school that's right for you should you choose to go. But you know, having been out for a couple years now, there are a few glaring problems I see not just from the school I attended, but apparently from many schools nationwide. And this deals with offering students a clear path of study for the often specialized career they are looking to get into. Areas of art such as (concept) design, animation, comics/storyboarding/sequential, full-time freelance, and all-over jobs related to working in industry-level professional positions, or in a teamwork-oriented studio setting.
