HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE SYMBOL OF PEACE -2 FESTS Please be aware the times have changed slightly!HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE SYMBOL OF PEACE -2 FESTS9 months ago in Art Shows & Events More Like This
The Symbol of Peace, a short documentary that I have worked on for the last year was accepted into film festivals earlier this year including the Peace River Film Festival where it will be screening this weekend on September 23, at 2:00PM, and the MovingMedia Film Festival at Wayne State University.
Although it was a great honor for me to have the film screened at these two festivals they were two of the smaller festivals we were accepted into.
The Symbol of Peace, Directed and filmed by Zev Vel, will share the inspiring stories and dreams of the people who love the peace sign and have created their own peace signs to display on their homes and businesses.
I was recently contacted and told that my film had made it into the Woodstock Film Festival. I am so excited as the Hudson Va
Please help - URGENT, a life is on the line.~Sahtori-Kamaya is suffering from cancer, and is in need of donations to pay for her chemotherapy. She does not have long to live.Please help - URGENT, a life is on the line.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
She has made a video to explain her situation, which you can see here:
(Links on how to help and donate are located in the video description.)
She is desperate for donations, and I am sad to say that for once in my life, I can't even spare a dollar. So the best I can do for now is to pass this on.
I can't believe how little she has raised out of her goal...especially when I've watched non-life-threatening campaigns often overshoot their lofty goals.
I wish her the best of luck, and I'm hoping this spreads and she gets the support she needs, and deserves.
She's been through a lot. I don't know why life is so cruel to some.
Please pass this on.

I have become addicted to photo manipulations, following my new found addiction I started a thread in the forum asking for entries to this feature.
Not all the works were chosen, but here are my favourites from the thread. The works that were not chosen were still great, but I was going by my personal favourites ^-^
Hope you like them and please take a closer look at the artists ☺

which really really really sucks, since i wanted to start doing custom wallets and buttons and shit like that while I have the means and time :/
sooooo here's what I'm proposing, kind of a "help me... help you" type deal...only I'm not really helping you, more so you get something out of it
BUT WHO doesn't like FREE? right ...right, am i right?
So give me some topics, OC characters, ideas, reffs, fav cartoon characters ETC and I'll try and put it to something ( like a custom button or what ever)
BUT WAIT !! if you like what i do mayyybe i'll end up actually sending it to you! would you like that? I bet you would CB
Now like allllll things considered you should leave something for me to attempt to draw
Key word in all of this is "attempt" so it will possibly not look the greatest nor have a bunch of time put in to it, since this is more

Important- Point Commissions and Referral system(Now with Couple Example!)Important- Point Commissions and Referral system1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm taking a different approach on DA about commission, because I doubt I'll get commissions at all, but I doubt I'll get them even less without this system.
I want to keep busy, so I'm offering cheap prices to see where this gets me.
If you don't have points there is still an opportunity for art so please scrolls down to 'Referral system' to see how.
If you're looking just to commission me.
I take regular commissions by paypal at anytime.
Note me if you'd like to see my commissions chart.
I'm taking commissions for 80 points (this is one dollar in USD; I will accept paypal as well)
For 80 points (1$ USD) you will get a picture like this
Two characters for 160 points ($2 USD). you will get a picture like this.
I do anthros and Ferals of all kinds.
Because my prices are so cheap I ask for payment up front, but I offer the information that these probably will take me less than
Protect Your Art From Theft: How To GuideArt theft is the crime of taking the copyrighted work of an artist without permission and then using it. It doesn't matter if it's a simple case of sharing art, or a massive scandal like the Chad Love Lieberman Art4Love case. No matter how minor the case, it is always worthwhile to take simple steps to protect your art from thieves.Protect Your Art From Theft: How To Guide2 years ago in Gossip More Like This
I've recently been a victim of art theft I never thought it would happen to me, I've thought my art was never good enough to be stolen. And the thought of it happening to me is so unrealistic. We always assume bad things are never going to happen to ourselves. So that's why it was a big shock when I found out that my art had indeed been stolen. I don't want anyone else to experience this horrible feeling, so I've written a News Article to help others

The Fractal Universe:icontechgnotic:The Fractal Universe2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Is a photograph only a record, something created by a machine? Can photography ever truly be considered art? That question seems quaint and laughable these days, but if you do a little research you will find that once upon a time it was a raging debate. Thankfully a consensus has been reached that the agency of the photographer – his or her eye and critical mind – choosing the subject and manipulating the machine (the camera that is the art instrument) is what establishes photographs as potential works of art when created by an artist-photographer. Pretty basic common sense, huh? So why then is there now a debate as to whether FRACTAL ART is truly art – or just something produced by poking patterns into a computer? Isn't it just really random e-graffiti, a fibonacci button mash?
Here we go again… Hopefully it won’t take nearly a century again before fractal art is recog
Microsoft Employees Disrupt Wii U Best Buy EventsRemember how Nintendo was showcasing some of their E3 games at participating Best Buy stores around the country? Well, apparently Microsoft employees have been hired to go to these events and preach about the Xbox One and make comments like "why would you buy a outdated Wii U when the Xbox One is right around the corner?"Microsoft Employees Disrupt Wii U Best Buy Events4 days ago in Personal More Like This
However, the employees aren't getting what they hoped for. Most customers just start bashing the Xbox One in response. Seriously, Microsoft, the people attending these Best Buy Wii U events are people who are intimately familiar with the crap you pulled at E3. They ain't takin' your shit.
At first I thought this might just be a case of one really loyal Microsoft employee taking matters into his own hands (especially since the original source was /v/), but reports have come in from numerous Best Buy's around the country that indicate many Microsoft employees have ambushed the demo lines trying to persuade people to switch to the Xbox One.

Ratome: and there were two lizards for sale
Ratome: and I looked at the larger one, and someone directed me to the little baby one
Ratome: so I held it, and it was so spunky
Ratome: immediately it darted into my sleeve and started running around on me
Ratome: and it tickled
Ratome: and so when we went home
Ratome: I found out that the lizard stowed away in my pocket
Ratome: and when I found it, it was almost dead
Ratome: and I was terrified, because it was almost dead!
Ratome: but I took it outside in the sun
Ratome: and it bounced back and smiled at me
Ratome: then darted into my sleeve and started tickling me again

The way I see it, if you're reading this, either you have a story you're working on or you're desperately trying to come up with one. Maybe it isn't coming together quite like you pictured it? Maybe there's too much to work with, or you have too many options to choose from? Maybe you're like many people and can't seem to come up with a good satisfying story no matter how hard you try!
Chances are, YOU ARE THINKING TOO HARD. Sure everyone wants to be the person who writes things like 'Inception' that are super complex and insightful and fun to watch/read/enjoy, but the point is that, when you boil a plotline down to it's basic elements, you should be able to summarize it in ten words or less.

That's right, I am open for Pokemon-commissions now. I decided not only to draw your favourite Pokemon, but also to feature one of your pictures in the description, which will be viewed by thousands of people! I wont take too many commissions by now (about 3 or so), so better get your offer now!
There are two possible commission-types:
You tell me, which Pokemon I should create a Pokedex-entry for and you can also tell me, if I should include some specific information or features etc. The price is set to 120-170 USD (depending on complexity), as these kinds of pictures cost me a lot lot of time and work! If you want me to include other Pokemon in the background (like other evolutions or other little Pokemon) it will add to the price.

Posting online is like dancing in a busy streetBefore you share anything online; be it art, photograph, or commentary, you should sit there and just envision this scenario:Posting online is like dancing in a busy street2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"EVERY PERSON ON THE INTERNET EVER IS GOING TO SEE THIS."
And really picture what people who don't know you, and don't care to know you, would say.
Then prepare yourself for it.
Because as terribly unlikely as that particular scenario is; your DA profile, journal, and gallery are still not your private little getaway of the internet for you and your buddies.
And you never know when something you did or said will be featured somewhere with a much bigger (and louder. and meaner.) audience than you're used to.
