Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-ConNo matter how tired your feet are by what is actually Day 5 of Comic-Con, counting Preview Night, no matter how exhausted your body and empty your wallet, there's always a bit of sadness in the air when the last few hours of Comic-Con wind down.Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-Con2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
In the deviantART booth, we witnessed something a little magical when the voice came over the loudspeaker to announce that Comic-Con was closed at 5:00 pm sharp, the remaining straggling attendees and exhibitors packing up stopped what they were doing and burst into applause. It was a mixture of relief, pride, and fulfillment of a successful convention.
Someone yelled, "See you in 365 days!" and there was a true moment of community with everyone in earshot. Sure, it's a sad sentiment, but it gives us all something to look forward to, and the months ahead will be filled with the happy memories of all we accomplished over the past week. Friends met that stop by every year, new friends, new properties to become fans of, new comic books to read and

Il Codice del Volo - Leonardo da VinciSenza dubbio tra la verità e la bugia c'è la stessa differenza che tra la luce e le tenebre. La verità ha in sé tanta eccellenza che si eleva senza confronti sopra le materie più umili e basse, superando le incertezze e le bugie dei grandi e altissimi discorsi; perché nella nostra mente, anche se la bugia fa parte della natura umana, non rimane che la verità delle cose che è di grande nutrimento tanto per gli intelletti fini quanto per le menti erranti.Il Codice del Volo - Leonardo da Vinci3 years ago in Personal More Like This
La bugia è così disprezzabile che anche se dicesse grandi cose di Dio, getterebbe discredito sulla sua natura divina; mentre la verità è così eccellente che nel caso lodasse cose minime, le renderebbe nobili.
Ma a te che vivi di sogni, ti piacciono di più le ragioni fallaci e gli imbrogli del parlare di cose grandi e incerte, rispetto alle cose certe e della natura, ma non così elevate?
Win8 and VS 11So i got back some feedback from my last journal. A lot of it. So let me go on record here...Win8 and VS 113 years ago in Personal More Like This
1 > I am "that guy" that hates something in initially, but after using a product for a week or two, grows to like it. Call me an Old Fart that hates Change.
2 > The whole "WinRT in Win8 only" was what i had read prior to the Dev.Preview coming out, and once i read that, i stopped looking for more info.
3 > from all the screencaps that i have seen (a few, not alot) has whatever app being developed as a fullscreen metro app. This i hate.
4 > If you need large typography, increase the DPI in control panel, dont write a new OS that forces it on people.
So thats about it. Ends up I was wrong about a few things, but, you know, To Err Is Human....
As I said above, I may love it a week after using it, or now... who knows. I DO know i am tired of all of the "Metro Concepts" that non-programmers are making.

Before we get into the thick of things, we didn’t have a photo of our huge plasma screens hanging from the convention ceiling to share in our Day 1 recap, so we vowed to get that to you today! The 11 foot wide screens stream amazing works of art from Artists' Alley participants to the whole convention floor!
In Comic-Cons past, the foot traffic In Artists’ Alley got busier and busier as the week progressed, and this year is no exception. There’s something magical about speaking one-on-one with a deviant, learning their experiences, hearing how they started as an artist, and how far they’ve come. It’s an emotional connection to make with someone who was practically a stranger a few moments ago -- and then you realize you’re not really strangers when you
Celebrate deviantART's 13th Birthday!Celebrate deviantART's 13th Birthday!2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.
New deviantART ThumbnailsIn the weekly Site Updates, we've been telling you all about the changes that have been launched to deviantART, getting your feedback, and reporting all the bugs that have been fixed.New deviantART Thumbnails3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
This change is a little different, since it involves a feature that has been in place for a long time. We think it deserves an announcement of its own, ahead of time.
The current deviantART thumbnails (the smaller versions of deviations) have served the community well for years; however, there's always room for improvement.
Some of the problems with existing thumbnails are: they leave a lot of blank space around them, there isn't a lot of room for text for literature deviations, and the thumbnails don't present very tall/wide images well.
The New Thumbnails
Now, we've created a new style of thumbnail, which hopes to solve a lot of these problems.
We've made all thumbnails bigger!We're showing them in tidier row

:iconthesmallwonder:A reflection by thesmallwonder
While warm summer is probably my favorite season, I have a soft spot for fall. It's a colorful season full of reds, oranges, and other fiery colors. It means cuddling with blankets, wearing cute scarves, and sipping warm cups of tea.
But mostly I love fall because it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood fairy tales called, "The Leaf in the Shape of a Key" by Joan Aiken. It's about boy who rides his bike beneath trees in fall, catching all shapes and colors of leaves. The last leaf is in the shape of a key, and it opens a door in the base of a tree.
I rode my bike under a lot of trees as a kid hoping to recreate the magic, but unfortunately, it's a little less whimsical when you live in a neighborhood of pine trees.
Still, fall is a time of nostalgia for me and the photograph

How correctly install GDIPPHi, i receive a lot of messages by people who want install GDIPP( cause GDI++ is crappy!!), so here is the good way:How correctly install GDIPP4 years ago in Personal More Like This
➊ Install GDIPP 0.7.6 in Registry( not in services, you will see it during the installation) , download: http://code.google.com/p/gdipp/downloads/list
➋ Copy the 2dll's in "C:\Program Files\gdipp" to "C:\Windows\system32"( for 64 users: 4 dll's: "sytem32"( for 64 bit dll's)+"syswow64"( for 32 bit dll's) ), like: http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/423903436372Capture.png
➌ Restart( done)
Edit ( 12 oct 2012):
Now, i use 0.9.1 version, it works better and no replacement of dll needed ( only install it and go..!), if you use Firefox or other: uncheck "material acceleration..." in Firefox ( or other) options!!
If some characters look a little craps in some applications: make an exeption in "C:\Program Files (x86)\gdipp\gdipp_setting.xml" with your notepad.

Many of you have been in this community for a long time, but whether you’ve just joined or you’ve been a member since day one, this is your first impression of the new DeviantArt.
Change is not something that we take lightly, because it affects our collective identity. It was important for us to define who we are and what we’re made of at our core before we changed anything. We all have our own understanding of what that means, but the process of getting that core story down on paper took almost a year.
The result is “Bleed and Breed Art.” This is our center of gravity and our reason for getting out of bed in the morning.
It is the guide and the justification for everything, including our business partnerships, the development of the new app and the design of our new ident
Mebbe an Update D:I was sneaking around in my dorm this morning and thought that maybe I should just maybe after all of these exams this week go out on campus and take pictures and start updating again. I don't have much to give and I don't have super oodles of free time right now, but I'm going to work on saving the money up, getting an external harddrive, and getting Photoshop on this computer so I can start 'shopping in my down time. I miss it. Until then, I can certainly upload my Facebook cover photos and crap.Mebbe an Update D:3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I miss my friends here on dA and want to become more active again. I want to start drawing and doing traditional coloring rather than just living in Photoshop forever. I really miss my photography.
I'll write more later. I have a dentist appointment to get to.
