The Inevitability of IndividualityI've been working on this for quite a while and I really hope you guys enjoy the result. I was looking through my favourites and it struck me how images with a similar composition can look so different, particularly of people. The phrase "The inevitability of individuality" came to me, and thus this project was born. Now, posting it, it feels like a piece of artwork in itself but sadly all the images belong to other people (click through and fave!). In any case the point of this art piece is to remind us all that no matter what we do we are uniquely ourselves. There's no point, and no need, to try and be someone else. You're perfect as you are.The Inevitability of Individuality1 year ago in Art Features More Like This

Does Morality Have a Place in the Modern World?Many would answer: Well, that depends. The common view of what morality means might differ from person to person. This begs the question then: What exactly is morality? One dictionary definition is this: "A system of ideas of right and wrong conduct."* That is an admittedly broad definition of morality. Perhaps then, the larger question might be this: Who gets to set the standards as to "right and wrong conduct?" First, let's examine one aspect of morality - sexual morality. The world we live in is changing rapidly as to sexual mores. Do you have doubts about this? Please question your grandparents or some other trusted senior, ask them if they feel societal views on sexuality have changed dramatically from the time they were in school. You might be surprised by the answer. Not too many decades ago, the idea of living together without being married was frowned upon by society and was labeled as "living in sin."

It's September, which means another school year has begun. The break of the summer has finally settled and all the kids, equipped with their little rucksacks, are ready for education!
For young children, school is about learning and exploring those basic skills we now take for granted as we get older. We learn them through a variety of lessons, and reading is essentially one of those. Do you remember those stories you read when you were in Primary or Elementary school?
Did you ever read Magic School Bus? The series, by Joanna Cole, featured a class of children and their eccentric teacher Ms Frizzle travelling on a bus to the most exotic of locations to understand how things worked- from inside the human body, to a water system and even outer space. The
Anorexia Nervosa“Anorexia isn't about being fat, it's about having fat.” ― Caroline Kettlewell, Skin GameAnorexia Nervosa1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anorexia nervosa has the highest rate of mortality of any psychological disorder.
The literal meaning of the word “anorexia” is the lack of appetite. However, people with the eating disorder anorexia nervosa do not, in fact, lose their appetite at all. Anorexia nervosa is most closely characterized by a person’s extreme reduction of food intake—starving themselves to become thin. Not only is this a serious health condition, but it’s a severe psychiatric disorder as well. Those who have been diagnosed with anorexia nervosa have an irrational fear of gaining weight and an unhealthy obsession with having a thin body. People affected by this disorde

Can Furries GET anymore stupid?And I thought China Kitty was the really stupid autistic furry on FA...Can Furries GET anymore stupid?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok, so apparently I just found out that at a NJ Fundraiser that some furries on FA had, 2 retarded dumbasses though it would be a good idea to have sex in fursuits on top of a car- in public- so EVERYONE can see. At first i was like..."What? This has to be a joke made up on /b/" then I do some research and see on a tumblr picture, it was true:
See there are 2 kinds of people.
Smart people who keep whatever creepy or non creepy fetishes they have to themselves and go about their lives like normal people
Then there are those who think the WORLD should know what they do and love for a living like those 2 idiots did and can actually cost many people their jobs. Not only was the fundraiser cancelled, but they will be no more-ever from them.
I feel really sorry for those participants who were really trying to help raise money (for I think Ambulances they said

Elan World (epic poem to be made into a novel)Of all the works I've posted on dA, Elan World is the one I favor the most. The eight-part epic has now been revised for better word choice and improved rhythm. Soon I will begin writing a middle grade novel based on the poem. When complete, I will begin the arduous task of submitting my novel to publishing houses for consideration (sigh). For some, long poems and stories are hard to follow. Therefore, I am posting the entire poem here in one journal so that any who wish to can fave it and read it at their leisure.Elan World (epic poem to be made into a novel)7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Like many epic stories, Elan World has some surprise twists. Look for them and see if you can figure out what is really happening, and why. I hope all who read Elan World in its entirety will come to love it as I do.
As always, thanks for support.

User Friendly Journal Skin Coding
I've been making journal skins on DeviantART since 2010, I'd dabbled in CSS before, but never for other people. I know what my codes are and how to use them to their full potential and often, just code on the fly when I want something to do something. But making free and commission skins here showed me that I needed to make them as easy to use as they are pretty. And really, who wants to type in a lot of extra HTML when they go to write a journal? It is easy enough to access the artist's comments.
But even then, copy & paste, memorize that.... It can be a lot to deal with if you do not know CSS and HTML. Which is the reason most people get someone else's skin design in the firs
FAN ART CONTEST - more prizes and first entries!The contestFAN ART CONTEST - more prizes and first entries!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Winter has always been a season which people either love or hate. No matter where we live we always have some strong emotions connected with it and a lot of them revolve around... snow!
Some love it, some hate it; some play with it creating snowmen, others do everything to get rid of it; some see it all year long and some can only dream about it.
Because of how many different emotions we connect with snow and how many uses it has it's a perfect theme for the promised fan art contest!
Your task is to create a fan art or fan fiction that will present your favourite character(s) interacting with snow.
Every entry should revolve around the "snow" theme. The more original you are, the better!
The work must be a Fan Art / Fan Fiction and it should be submitted into the Fan Art
Helpful Habits for CommissionersA lot of people have been asking me to write up something on the topic of taking and pricing commissions like I did with conventions, so here you go!Helpful Habits for Commissioners11 months ago in Personal More Like This
So what is a commission? If you didn't already know, a commission in way I will be discussing is when a person pay for an artist to draw them something. Neato, right? Money for art, couldn't be better.
Well there are a few catches to this art thing professionally and non-professionally; especially on an amateur level. First off, you wont get paid nearly what you should be getting paid...so if your motivation is money... you should pick a different field of interest. Second, you need to build your people skills. Third money management is key. Fourth, time management or cry in a corner.
Let's discuss the first point, not getting paid enough! Illustrators and professional artists in the industry are currently getting paid the same rates as they were 50 years ago... the exact same. Inflation has not touched the art field so we are making less
