UPDATE: Fairy Tale ContestAlright, as I have multiple people telling me the current contest is too hard (which, really people, Miss Universe would be harder considering you had to draw the same person in 7 different outfits), I'm going to say this, THIS CONTEST THEME WAS NOT MY IDEA. I was asked by a member, to do a contest where the theme would include group senshi, but as this person hasn't even submitted a proper entry to this contest, it was disqualified, and I'm tired of people not wanting to do this contest, SO, guess what? this contest is being COMPLETELY reformed. In this Journal. Right now. and yes I changed the theme for all of you, but the next fairy tale contest will be princess/prince themeUPDATE: Fairy Tale Contest3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I'm not sure if I will be drawing everything or not. You may receive something from me, but also you might not.
I will be probably using your references when I'll be bored/need to practise/need to make some examples of my work/just like your character and want to draw it in any ways.
You might receive something simple, BUT you can also get something more complicated - it depends on my mood.

What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)Okay, due to some flaming I've received because I brought art plagiarism to the attention of an art plagiarist... I've realized that there is more than a good number of people who don't know what art plagiarism really is--so, I've written an informative journal for you all. It's broken down into several easy to understand sections.What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)6 years ago in Personal More Like This

Wire whisk or fork
Medium sized saucepan
Medium sized bowl
1 cup measure
1 teaspoon measure
Ice-cream maker or ice-pop molds or a cooler of liquid nitrogen (optional)
1 heart (optional get it)
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
blue food colouring (optional)
1.Re-arrange the letters of your name and add an X somewhere.
2.Crack 2 eggs into the bowl and whisk well for a few minutes. A wire whisk works best but a fork can do in a pinch.
3.Add the cup of sugar into the eggs and continue to whisk well until creamy.
4.Heat the milk in the saucepan over medium heat until warmish hot while constantly stirring with the wooden spoon (do not use a metal spoon it will scratch your pot and make the milk burn easier). The milk should be right before boiling, but do not let it boil, just bubble slightly. Do not heat too fast or the milk will curdle. Whole milk works best and

- An entire waking day is not long enough. Humans should evolve to sleep less.
- Someone will always draw worse than you.
- Someone will always draw better than you.
- Community projects like this bring out the best in artists and help them to grow.
- Newbie/Beginner artists are worth no less than naturally talented artists.
I used to be a grandiose asshole. I judged, I looked down upon others that had simple things wrong--incorrect anatomy in a place or two, incorrect coloration, oversaturated color, undersaturated color, clashing colors, and a myriad of other things.
I suppose this was from my environment. When I used to be a part of the Megaman community, my art was frequently judged as poor because of stupid, nitpicky things. "Zero's forehead jewel is too small". "X's shoulders are too broad". And of course the worst, vague responses like "His helmet looks off".

Seriously, Microsoft?Right folks.Seriously, Microsoft?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just looked up the stuff on X-Box One (the new X-box system) and already I can tell you it's looking like it's going to lose out to PS4 (assuming Sony is smart and doesn't do the exact same thing). Reason being? X-Box might be using a 'Used Game fee' system - that is, any used game you play maybe subject to a fee once you play it on your system (that way the money-greedy bastards can wring you dry)
Now, I can understand the need for money - a business can't keep going without it - but we're talking about MICROSOFT here, one of the top, most valuable and wealthy businesses in the world (probably was *THE* top once, before Walmart took that spot... dunno who it is now). Used games, while maybe occasionally purchased by the cheap, are also purchased by those who simply cannot afford the newer games. Me? I can't typically afford to spend $60 for a new game. Every once in a while, when I've saved up enough money for a period of months, I have room to spoil myself for a ga

Tetsuo Shima (Villain Spotlight)Neo Tokyo is buzzing. The lights and sounds of the city hide the truth of the past, and the possible rubble of a collapsed future on the horizon. Gangs run rampant throughout the city, and a cataclysmic event is still being felt, even though it happened so long ago. Neo Tokyo stands as a testament to what people can achieve and recover from after everything is taken away or destroyed. Massive buildings dot the skyline, and give the view of stability and tranquility. It is amazingly beautiful, and gives hope to a new and prosperous future. It’s almost euphoric just looking at them. It’s a shame we are going to have to tear it all down.Tetsuo Shima (Villain Spotlight)1 year ago in Personal More Like This

What Are We Talking About?
Hello and thanks for reading my journal about closed species. I spent two years studying and observing the community to write this; it's an article about what this weird system is about. I only know what I've watched as I've never tried it before, but I was interested in writing about the topic because I noticed a running theme with this kind of art: artists are bullied over ideas they conceive because other artists believe they control their characters in ridiculous ways. This was written to help artists to understand their rights when creating species, putting them online, and exchanging money for

However, I did started read what :iconsorasfuturewife: recommended (since I saw her art for it) called HIGH SCHOOL DEBUT. It's a funny high-school romantic comedy shojo manga, and encouraged to recommend it to any manga readers out there (they sure make a cute couple).

Today, I have started drawing Mulan since I was watching some Disney animated show that featured her in a cameo (that's SOFIA THE FIRST). The first one I've drew was when she was in her uniform and had that big golden sword by her side. It turned out pretty good, and continued to drew a little more of her.

But because my world will become a darker place when you have gone.

Your light burns brighter than a million suns, and you have
Become a star who walks amongst the earth.
To a most beloved friend,
I wish just once more that I could laugh with you and cry with you
And hear your voice inside my life.
To a most beloved friend,
Time does not give us enough, or perhaps it gives us too much
That we grow close and have the time to care
But know this, my most beloved friend,
I have no regrets for our most beloved friendship.
If time could be repeated I would change nothing.

I will see you again someday and I look forward to it.
Together amongst the stars we will all shine so brilliantly forever
Yes, you, my most beloved friend.

Authentic CitizenshipOnce Again, The Room Fell Away. The prodigious artistic and cultural exchange that we have all committed ourselves to building, to participating in and to sharing with each other every day at deviantART often occurs in RL on the decks of HQ as well. One of the best aspects of being in my position here at deviantART is the privilege to curate salons with artists of every medium and success level imaginable, art appreciators, writers, and educators from all points of light within the deviantART community inviting them to make the trek to HQ for what always manifests as an inspiring, thoughtful, educative, and enlightening dialogue. But sometimes, sometimes, things rise to a whole other level.

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject

Still others treat them as a special way to bring attention to great art that exemplifies works being done by a particular gallery or community.PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Perhaps because there are so many different ways of conceptualizing DDs, there are also many myths and misconceptions. I would like to address some of those myths by responding to the ones most frequently heard. Please note that these opinions are mine and reflect my experiences with the photomanipulation community, but perhaps they will be informative nevertheless.
Myth 1: DDs should always be perfect.
To many of us, the ideal Daily Deviation goes to an artist with amazing talent whose work draws you in and makes you think, "Wow, everyone needs to see this!" A DD should move you, inspire you, and provoke you to think, b
