Summer time by Kaminski83
I'm speechless...Day before my birthday was Thanksgiving, full of cooking and preparing stuff and some shoveling of snow. It turn out very good after all the hard work, and it was worth it. But I didn't get a lot of sleep before I worked 6-2pm yesterday, still tired from it and sort of just wanting to sleep all day. Instead my dad and I went to the mall so he could get me a new winter coat with a shirt, a memory foam pillow and slippers. We ate at a diner for dinner, and went home for some cake and a crazy movie called Snowpiercer (I'd recommend it. It's a Family Picture~ </sarcasm>). Nothing special or less than expected, yet I enjoyed myself very much. Regarding me and birthdays or any holiday nowadays, I don't really know what I want when it comes to gifts...I'm speechless...7 months ago in Personal More Like This

Design a Zombie CompetitionWe are working on a new project, one that is in full swing as we speak. We are creating a series of toys, well, models to be more precise. ZOMBIES! We have a set of 5 being sculpted as we speak. But we are creating 5 more, 5 designed by you. You'll be accredited for your work on the base of the model, as well as on the models' box. It's a very good way of getting something great on your portfolio and you'll get your design fully cast and sent to you to go with your portfolio.Design a Zombie Competition2 years ago in Personal More Like This
OKAY – So what's the deal, what do we want?
The image attached are the proportions we want, it's not quite CHIBBI proportions – as an example, look up the artwork for "Super puzzle Fighter" – many Street Fighter enthusiasts will know where we are going with this. Okay, so those are the proportions we want – what about the rest?
Imagine the most twisted zombie you can think of and that's what we want, but in a semi-cute fashion. Recently, in the latest episode i

Artists' Toolbox: The 50mm LensAstrikos for projecteducateArtists' Toolbox: The 50mm Lens9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The 50mm lens is a great, great lens.
It's versatile, fast and bright, and mimics the view of the human eye (on a full frame. If shot with an APC-S size sensor, it ends up being more like a 80mm). It's also light and easy to carry around. Not only that, but the f/1.8 variety is usually very cheap. The one I use was priced at around $100. Of course, there's the extremely nice f/1.4 variety, but that costs a lot more. If you need a sharp prime lens on a budget, the 50mm f/1.8 is a great deal.
Prime lenses: Prime lenses do not have a zoom range. They're often sharper than their zoom lens counterparts because they lack the extra moving glass elements that the zoom need. This allows them to capture clearer images and are usually sharper. Since prime lenses are simpler, they usually can open up pretty wide, making them faster and more useful in low light situations.

Check out this brilliant tribute to Robin Williams, painted by Yuuza!!
On the lethality of mental illness
We were saddened deeply today to hear that Robin Williams appears to have taken his own life. He was a brilliant, creative mind and a voice for humanity.
I've seen a lot of tributes to him over the past hour or so. Many people have posted clips of his work, quotes, and favorite memories. That's great; it's how we honor someone. But, somehow I feel like we're missing the point.
The point is . . . it's not fucking funny.
EDIT: I am not saying that people are making fun of Robin Williams' death. I am saying that some (not all) people are ignoring the cause of it.
Reports have it that Mr. Williams suffered from depression and possible drug/alcohol abuse. I've also read that he had bipolar disorder. Regardless, what plagued him was lethal, and it plagues so many other human beings acro

Aaaaand I wanted to wait til the 5th member of the group was revealed, buuuut after much though I am going to let her join the next competition (unless someone decides to draw her)
Here's the mission. Pick any of the main characters from my comic (Lene, Jade, Dan, Cynthia, Clarice who hasn't shown her face yet) And draw them interacting with your OC!
Can I use someone else's OC?
No, it has to be Your own. Unless it's a very popular fan made OC like fufflepuff, Button Mash etc...
Oh but I don't have an OC
Oh that's fine, you can draw one of the characters in the comic interacting with a show/background pony from MLP.
I know what you are going to say. Well... THERE'S MORE! Don't wanna draw them with a show po

OK so here with go with our 'Draw-A-Long' feature, today we will look at what materials I will use create the drawing. I have to underline that these are the tools that I will use. You may be able to get better results with different more or less pencils or a different grade paper – but these are what I will be using
Some of the materials are standard tools that should be in everyone's pencil case – others are not so – in particular the finer pencil eraser. I cannot recommend these enough, I tend to erase as much as I draw, not because of mistakes, but as a way of obtaining textures and blends – so please if you want to follow this series please try and hunt down one of these. The only other piece that may be unusual to you is the Tortillion – these are tightly rolled sticks of paper and are again an essential item to me – mine do not usually look this clean and having one side which is blackened with graphite is e

My favourite poem ever :-
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action --
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

ugh im sorry but (gender identity talk)i dont fucking care if youre a professional bullshit psychiatrist, dont ever tell someone that chooses to identify as a different gender/both/neither genders/ or whatever the fuck gender they want, that their beliefs dont exist and arent valid. You know what isnt valid? even saying that, seriously, what good does that do at all? good job, now you just hurt a person's feelings and pushed them way out of their comfort zone, when CLEARLY THEY WERE ALREADY IN AN UNCOMFORTABLE POSITION IN THE FIRST PLACE.ugh im sorry but (gender identity talk)6 months ago in Personal More Like This

Four hundred people.
I don't really know what to say anymore, I was celebrating 300 watchers not long ago and we're already at 400 now.....that kinda blows my weird, shifted mind :l
I didnt think I was gonna come this far as I joined dA a few months ago, but well, here we are!
And if you ask me, yeah, this definitely tickles my fancy!
I once again have no words to describe how happy and grateful I am. I know everyone always says that, but I really mean it.
I'll now leave a blank space so you'll have to pause for a second, during which you can imagine me melting of happiness and genuine confusion.
So yeah, now that Rabbit is trying to shape my pudding-reduced body into the pineapple it was before, I have time to thing what I could do to celebrate...
..And of course! I'm still gonna hold a raffle, like I usually do :3
So lets take care of it right away, shall we? *insert unnecessarily huge title below:*
