There were days when you just want to tear a door right off its hinges. This. Was. One of those days.
Next to me, a woman snoring obnoxiously as if she swallowed a rusty chainsaw for breakfast. Her pungent perfume was sprayed heavily to mask the smell of a baby’s throw up.The blend of flowery perfume and unchanged diaper violated my nostrils until my head pounded as if a Quinceañera party with bad Skrillex songs were blasting inside my head. Inside her arms, nestled a baby around 9 months old, sleeping soundly. The air flight regulations demanded any traveling children to be put to sleep under oral anesthesia. I hate kids.
Anyways, the lights in the small air craft were off. I’m heading to Milky Beach, some place on “Arth”. Why? I don’t know, my doctor told me I have three months left to live, I might die at any given moment. Brain tumor. Cliche, I know. It is what it is.
Occasionally, I’d see things that weren’t there.

The Professional's Path (part 2)With this online art community, we have a unique opportunity to connect with our kindred. We must avail ourselves of this experience, for it may never come again.The Professional's Path (part 2)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In answering a friend over on facebook, I said the following, and perhaps it may also prove useful to some here...
"It's seldom a good idea to aspire to be a professional artist solely for financial gain. Creativity just doesn't work that way (in most cases). Just as on the amateur level, an artist must truly love creating art. Any profit should always be but a fringe benefit. Even in putting up with corporate meddling and other nonsense, the professional artist should seek to imbue every project with something of him or herself in order to maintain balance, and to keep the enjoyable flow of creativity active. This doesn't mean that there should not be a concern for proper compensation. However, compensation should never be the primary motivation (unless you
got an email from Penguin Publishers!...and I just gave them information about the book. Guys, this whole publication dream might actually come true! Thank you so, so much to all of you who have stuck with me from the beginning, and to all of you who have just started following me. I love and adore every single one of you and will make sure you each get a copy of Paper Stars if it gets published, because you're the reason I've made it this far. I can't even begin to explain how much support you all have given me when I've felt useless or untalented or insignificant: you, my watchers, my friends, have been with me and believed in me even when I'm at my lowest, and I cannot put to words the extent of my gratitude. From commenting on every single one of my pieces to simply clicking the "watch" or "favorite" button, you have given me the confidence and drive to pursue my dreams despite my anxiety and fear, and I could never ask for anything more wonderful.

Escape! ContestNew year, a new contest!Escape! Contest4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This one has two parts. There is a stock category, and an art category. They will both be judged separately, so you can enter both the stock half, and the art half if you wish, with a maximum of three entries per person into each category.
What is the theme I hear you ask? We are looking for stock and art based on the word "escape". You can interpret this in any way you like, but the escape must be apparent in your work.
For art, you may be showing an escape from prison, from your own mind, from a cleverly concealed trap. Whatever you like I'm just throwing ideas out there. For the stock half, again, you might find yourself trapped in a box or running from aliens, whatever you like. You can be as dynamic and expressive as you like. (I will give you a tip for those of you who are first trying your hand at stock and wish to do an action shot. Get someone behind the camera. And get a good camera, if you don't own one, borrow one!)
Get the idea? Great! Now we move

So journals- you can write what you want in them right?
Well, I'm really sick of cyber bullying around here. If you haven't seen it around deviantART, you're lucky because it breaks my heart. It's so ridiculous. I've seen a lot of it around the anime/manga community lately.
I am not going to name any users here.
But seriously. You guys need to stop. I'm sure you know who I am trying to direct if you've seen it around. Anyway--
Dear cyber bullies,
It's NOT right to send notes to people saying:
-Go die because they're heavily influenced by someone's art
-You want a commission, give them references, etc, then when the artist notes you back, telling them their art is shit
It's NOT right to:
-write hate comments on someone's page
-make a new account several times after being blocked just to harass someone
fur is worn by beautiful animals and ugly peopleJournalfur is worn by beautiful animals and ugly people3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I like how someone can buy a fur and just because the animal died of natural causes, or was roadkill, that makes it okay?
This was once a living creature... does it not deserve the same respect as any other? Do we have to put their remains on display or wear them? This creature had a living heart, a soul, and had it's own personal spirit energy.
What would anyone think to the remains of a dead human hanging on a wall? What about a human headdress or the remains of a human hand made into a keychain? Gross, right? So why is the attitude different to animals?
And what the hell is this picture doing on an art site anyway??
i feel like saying to the artist "when you get run over by a car, may i rip off your skin and nail it to my wall?"

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.

What Song Are You Into This Week? Mk. IXHey there music lovers! It's that time again! Time for another music share! Because I'm taking a trip out of the country this weekend and I want some new music for the plane ride! XDWhat Song Are You Into This Week? Mk. IX1 month ago in Personal More Like This
You know the rules! And if you don't, here they are for you!
1. I'm not asking for your "favorite song ever" exactly, just for that song that's been stuck in your head lately. Or that song you can't seem to take off repeat. You know the kind! Just something that you've enjoyed listening too lately.
2. It doesn't have to be a new song. It could be an old song you've rediscovered recently, or one you'd never heard before. Or whatever.
3. Please post a link to your song so we can all enjoy it!
4. Please refrain from posting songs with excess profanity or cursing.
5. Please, try to keep it to two songs per person. I try hard to listen to everyone's songs, but it's difficult when people post five or six or fifteen songs. XD
6. Most importantly- Have fun! And let's all have a good time sharing music!

The Tree as Beautiful MachineThe Tree as Beautiful Machine3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
While searching DeviantArt for images for the Earth Day article, I became intrigued with how trees have become not only such a central focus of our current environmental concerns, but also how they play such a central role in our art, whether as background or actual subject matter. There are so many Enchanted Forests on DeviantArt that it made me wonder if trees, so mundane and taken for granted yet at the same time so vital to life on earth and so steeped in myth, have always been the revered subjects of the world’s artists.

Introduction to Polymer ClayPolymer clay is a modeling compound consisting mainly of polymer polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and plasticizes to make it pliable.

We are going to do lots and lots of awesome things.
(I have told her, since that her flight is late getting in, I'm meeting up with an old mate from college and we're going to the pub, so if I ain't at the airport when she arrives jumping up and down on the spot with a silly sign, then I'm still with a pint, in the pub and there will be no hope for her )
In other news. The freezer door was not shut properly. Looks like I'm going to have to "save" an entire tub of mint choc chip ice cream for pudding. The hardships of a modern world!

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined

Know your Basics - PerspectivePerspective comes in different forms, the most obvious & basic of which is the use of the word in relation to the appearance of relative orientation in a three dimensional space. At first, it may seem irrelevant to photomanipulators, (because, hey, the photographs already are perspectively sound,) but putting more than one photograph in context requires that you learn to see what makes sense and what doesn't.Know your Basics - Perspective4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Technical Stuff
Perspective (from Latin perspicere, to see through) in the graphic arts, such as drawing, is an approximate representation, on a flat surface (such as paper), of an image as it is seen by the eye. The two most characteristic features of perspective are that objects are drawn:
Smaller as their distance from the observer increasesForeshortened: the size of an object's dimensions along the line of
sight are relatively shorter than dimensions acro
