America’s Museum, the Smithsonian Institution, Just a short walk from the White House, has had its up’s and down’s over the years since opening in 1846.
The Smithsonian’s Washington complex of nineteen museums, nine research centers, and a zoo, has been enjoying a recent renaissance of reorganization and a welcome if belated introduction into the digital age.

Regarding the Boston Marathon BombingI've tried to write this journal a few times, but I am having trouble finding words.Regarding the Boston Marathon Bombing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I live in Massachusetts, so Boston is "my home" when I travel and the city that I most strongly associate with myself. I'm mad. I don't know how to feel about things like this other than to be mad. In an age of immediate and 24 news, it's hard to not know who or why, and endlessly frustrating to watch people fight and blame without any factual information.
I do love the quote from Fred Rogers that has been going around. But I also think about the words of people like George Carlin. Is this just how we live now? I feel like people my age, who were teens during 9/11, live our lives just assuming that any and every day there's a chance we could be violently and senselessly killed by a random act of violence. Does that mean that the people who do these things have succeeded?

Bonding with Animals, March 2013The Human-Animal Bond Group:Bonding with Animals, March 20133 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Featuring the real or imaginary bonds that exist between people and animals.
It has been awhile since I've featured anything from this group. Life has been busy between work, nearing the end my degree, searching for a masters program and/or career, and striving to be the best I can be. The cost has been my artistic side - temporarily neglected however necessary. I've actually been cursed with too many interests in life, making it nearly impossible to spread myself thin and achieve everything that I love. While my creativity awaits in the shadows, it knows I will return to it. However sad, it must be put on hold. And though I sometimes think I should not be on deviantART because it really grabs my attention and time, I like to make an appearance now and again because it is an inspiring place to be, filled with talent and great people. I cannot wait until the chaos weake
Winter Alliance Contest! Greetings, fair Allies! It is my pleasure to announce the Winter Alliance Contest!Winter Alliance Contest!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I thought I would try to do something about that. And so the Alliance was born!
Because I, your founder, have a deep and abiding love for the seasons, this group will now host seasonal contests, and as the Autumn Contest is now over, it is time for Winter to reig

Goals and Features How have you guys been? I can't promise I'll be very talkative because I admit I really suck at writing these..Goals and Features2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So.. I've been trying to really challenge myself. I really want to get better with my work. It's sort of frustrating when you're never quite sure if you are improving or how to better fix the problems you already know you have. I've been rather frustrated with my progress to be honest. I keep looking at my art wondering how to fix various parts.. I know I am getting better, I can go back through my gallery and do the cringe-fest towards the back.. I still sort of feel like it's slow going. Currently, my biggest problems are blending and light sources. I'm pretty sure that I could fix all those issues if I wouldn't try to speed through a piece.. I average about 2 hours per artwork and I am pretty sure that's me being too fast... At the same time when I do sit down and try to take the time it ends in even more frustration. When I

Edit 2: (Date extension until June 15th.)
So I did this contest last year and it was so successful that I just had to do it again. Though I have bumped the winning prize up a bit to $40 this time or 3,200 . and I understand that people usually have time frame issues, so that is why this contest will not end until June 15th.
What you have to do
Just like last year all you simply need to draw one or more of my OCs and submit it here on DA, unless breaks DA rules, then you must submit it somewhere else and send me the link or just send me the file via note. I will be making a little list below here with a reference image and a description of each of the characters below.

Lineart, Light, and Planning AheadJust a quickie today because I saw something that made me smile!Lineart, Light, and Planning Ahead4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love it when artists post the lineart and then the finished piece. In the case of this drawing, the lines are charming and well-executed, but don't particularly give the impression of a finished piece. They are clearly one part of a considered process.
A lot of the time, lines are used as a description of exclusively form and the things that can be conveyed that way, composition, expression, etc. Then, when we color, we begin to consider things like mood and lighting. I've been thinking a lot about how to describe light with line while working on the recent ink drawings, and so I had a particular "squee" moment when I noticed this lovely spot of consideration in Hughes' drawing-
Look at the color version at the shadow behind Selina- the shape of it, and compare it to the line version. Despite there being very little detai
