Give me a ReasonGive me a reason why I shouldn't grab the knife,Give me a Reason2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
To ease my pain, to end life's strife.
Give me a reason why I shouldn't grab the gun.
All I ask is not several, but one.
Give me a reason why I shouldn't pull the rope.
Why shouldn't I? Ask anyone. I'm a dope.
Give me a reason why I shouldn't make the kill.
This pain, this suffering, it makes me ill.
No one would miss me if I were gone.
My fight has lost, the darkness has won.
My warm summer's day has become a cold winter's night.
The spark in my eyes is no longer very bright.
So give me a reason why I shouldn't grab the knife,
To ease my pain, to end life's strife
Apophysis Image Rendering & MultithreadingThis article relates to the fractal program "Apophysis" (Apo), but may also be relevant to other image rendering programs.Apophysis Image Rendering & Multithreading7 years ago in Personal More Like This
In Apo, there is a setting in the OPTIONS menu where one can specify the number of rendering "threads" to use. This has a direct impact on the amount of rendering time an image takes to render. If set to OFF, the image will render as if it was using a single CPU. If set to 2 or 4, the image will render in much less time, because it has 2 or 4 CPU cores of which to take advantage.
People who have Intel CPUs, which have hyperthreading (such as some Pentium 4's), can set this option to 2 if they wish (DO NOT use higher than 2).
Don't know how to get an image in here, so here is the screenshot link showing this setting option. http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/46008841/?qo=1&q=by%3Azsteve+in%3Ascraps&qh=sort%3Atime
Hyperthreading (wanky marketing speak), basically means the CPU has "two threads" with which to perform its data processing (sort of like two C

Here's today's question:
"How can I approach creating abstract art?"
I believe that abstract art is most powerful when it naturally evolves in one's creative process. Many abstract artists arrive at abstraction after long periods of experimentation with other styles and approaches. While it's fine to have an eventual goal of working abstractly, don't try to force it on yourself prematurely. It's impor

Chrisravensar Artist InterviewWe recently conducted an interview with the amazing talented Artist Chrisravensar. The profile is at http://chrisravensar.deviantart.com/Chrisravensar Artist Interview10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here is the interview below - thanks to the Artist for the time in conducting and answering questions for our members.
What inspired me to take up art.
I couldn't say I can not remember a time when I wasn't drawing. As a child my sisters wanted Barbies I wanted art supplies. So I suppose I was born an artist. What kept me drawing were my interests. I drew what I loved horses and animals. And whatever had my interest at the time Swords and Fantasy Artherian legend. I have always drawn what I wanted.
What materials do you use and recommend
I am a pencil artist and draw on paper. I have done ink work and will be doing more of that soon. I also use coloured pencil and chalk pencil. What I recommend is difficult to say. Paper I buy by feel. I don't really care about a brand or manufacturer. I want acid free and something that feels right, I

New idea on a story.I watched as, Aela the Huntress carefully sheathed her bow. After a night on the hunt it was blatant she was writhing with back aches. She should have shifted to her lycan form I thought but who am I to criticize her technique.

"Are you just going to stand their with your eyes a gape or are ya gonna help me with this?" Aela cut her eyes at me, to the point I backed up.
"Er.. Yes!" I looked like a fool.
I just enlisted into Jorrvaskr a month ago, but i'm still just a welp. I can just picture Farkas screaming at me to wash the bloody kettle. Thank Akatosh i'm out of kitchen duty and onto assisting Aela on her hunts.
I gathered my composure and leaned down to throw the, Elk over my shoulder. It was a heavy load but I couldn't bare to look spineless in front of her. With the strain of this full grown hoof monster on my back, and the wobbly knees I get when Aela decided to flip her wondrous hair back I could hardly stand. H

Pain overdue, nails engrave.
Mercilessly into my untouched skin.
Somehow causing pleasureful sin.
Your lips brush soft against mine,

Tongue moving down my neck,
heart beating faster with every breath.
Salty skin tumults a fire,
you put it out with sick desires.
Brown stares into blue, you know what I crave.
Pleasure due, I give up beneath you.
Confidence DropThis is gonna be a short journal entry, but I'm just curious if others have this problem. I don't know about everyone else, but I get very disappointed when I post art and it gets 0 favs or comments. When I think I have a great piece of literature or art my confidence level is high, but then I post it and no one favs or comments. I know favorites and comments don't define anyone's art, but it sure gives a me a lot more motivation. I'm sure people will comment with "Don't mind what others think" but with all honesty, that's almost impossible to do. I know I'm not the only one.Confidence Drop1 year ago in Personal More Like This

DA BOOTS.This is going to be a very quick, very sparse general tutorial to a lot of questions I've gotten about the long fall boots for my Portal 2 Chell cosplay.DA BOOTS.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Basically they are welded steel. Eight pieces per boot to be exact. I got some pictures of the process, they're not the most helpful but if there's enough of a want for it I'll post some sort of tutorial. Though it seems a little pointless since so far all the personal messages I've gotten, the process couldn't be used by those asking. D:
I found a boot, I chopped up the boots, mainly the toe and the front part and sides. With my brother's help, together we welded a u-shaped frame for my upper calf. From this we had straight pieces going down either side of my calf (inner and outter) and then hooking around the bottom with more pieces of metal. This provided a hook around my heel that would support my weight much like a high heel shoe. Then we hammered out the shape of the 'spring' on two separate pieces of metal, one fitting inside t
When less is MoreLife has been nice and slow for me lately. Maybe the pace of life is making me look at artwork a new way. I am finding work that has more form and figure than colors lately on my favs list. Some of the work featured are examples of Minimalism at it's best. Others are work that just have a wonderful look, they are maybe only two or three colors with great framing. I hope you like the features.

You & I,
Only had one Saturday left,
I would bring us to an open field
Because there our emotions could escape freely.
And I would let you braid my hair for one last time
And I wouldn't mind how ridiculous I looked
Because that's what you like to do.
You would let me talk forever
And even sing, not caring if it hurt your ears.
In the sun I would get red
And you would get darker more,
No longer a vampire.
But for once you wouldn't let it bug you,
Because we'd be on our last Saturday.
I would cut your hair, letting the dye run out,
Leaving it curly and blonde
So that's how I would always remember it.
And you wouldn't even care, because that is how you're beautiful to me.
I would take photos,
So that even when I'm old and wrinkly,
And you're gone forever even more, I will always remember our last day.
We would both cry and laugh
And I hope that you'll let my velvet tears stain you,
So that you will have some way to remember me.
And I will be comforted by knowing
That no matter
My Story about Depression, Suicide and AnxietyI don't really know why I am writing this, or why I have the sudden urge to post this on Deviantart where everyone can see. Maybe it's because I don't know another way to express my thoughts right now. Maybe its because I've never written down my situation in words and I feel that this is the time. Maybe it's because I hope someone out there reads this and understands what I'm going through.My Story about Depression, Suicide and Anxiety10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Depression. It's a word that many people have heard of, but only a select few know what it feels like to have it inside you. Depression, for me, is compared to the feeling of knives just about to plunge into your heart. You are constantly living in fear that death will be upon you if you even move a single inch. You are stuck in place, unable to move, unable to get help. You think nobody understands.
After a while of living in this fear, you start to think. You think that maybe you'd be better off if those knives would just kill you already. And if it's really bad, you'll start to think of ways you
