Kubrick's Street Factor"From 1945 to 1950, before becoming a movie director, Stanley Kubrick used to be a young lifestyle photographer working for former photography magazine Look (which shut down in 1971). Kubrick began as an apprentice. Only aged of 17, he was Look’s youngest staff photographer back then. During those five years, he developed his unique visual style. Even if the photographs were taken in late 40′s, the young director to be already succeeded in giving a visionary, timeless, enigmatic and, even sometimes, futuristic atmosphere through its lens."Kubrick's Street Factor4 years ago in Personal More Like This

What is Halloween?WHAT IS HALLOWEEN?What is Halloween?1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
~You know Halloween.
That time of year synonymous with falling leaves, autumnal colors, shorter days and longer scarier nights. Also hand in hand in trick-or-treat bag with dressing up as this years super heroes or popular princesses, hanging up some paper bats and ghosts, partaking in generally good-meaning shenanigans.
A VERY condensed and simplified primer on the true origins of holiday, beyond little kids trick or treating, follows;
It's become much more widely more known to the general public what the grandaddy of Halloween is;
Samhain. (pronounced sah-win)
The festival of Samhain was (and still is) a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. Samhain was a time used by the ancient pagans to take stock of supplies and prepare for winter. Animals were corralled and butchered, plants and grains harvested, and cleansing bonfires signified a time or harvest.
This lead to another common Halloween motif still present today; it was believed the bon

DISNEY HIGH CONTEST: Design an outfitHello little nuggets! I wrote this journal with such joy in my heart, as i am a free girl who is no longer burdened with the evils of TAFE assignments and homework and dragging myself into the city 4 days a week AS I AM NOW ON GLORIOUS SUMMER HOLIDAYS AND IM SO HAPPY I WANT TO DANCE THROUGH FIELDS AND HUG YOUNG CHILDREN BECAUSE NOW I HAVE SO MUCH LOVELY PRECIOUS FREE TIME!DISNEY HIGH CONTEST: Design an outfit3 years ago in Personal More Like This
ALSO I WANT TO HAVE A CONTEST.
The gist of it:
So, the contest is based around the disney high drawings i do and the story i write, and basically i want to give people the chance to design their own versions of a modern outfit, or outfits, for the girls. You submit your lovely design to me, and i then draw it up myself and add the picture to part of my series in the disney high folder of my gallery, with all the credit of the fabulous design going to the winners! I was mainly inspired by all the commenters who saw my disney girls and said that they pictured some of the girls dressing very differently, so i want to gi
Miniaturists, unite!I haven't met a single miniaturist in deviantART that hasn't made the same question at least once: Where do I submit my work?.Miniaturists, unite!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Whether you make dolls, furniture, clothes, props, food, scenery, buildings, trains, wargaming miniatures, models, dollhouses or many other miniatures I'm surely forgetting, at some point or another there's no appropiate gallery to submit our work. Artisan Crafts / Ceramics, Pottery & Clay / Miniatures is only appropriate if you use clay, and the next best option, Traditional Art / Sculpture doesn't make the cut most times.
As renowned artist Snowfern so eloquently stated: "as I'm moving on to different mediums, I really do wish dA had some scale dollhouse miniature section right now, I can only post my mini clay work under clay -> miniatures, so everything else is quite random, like my 1:12 books are under....bookmaking??".

Commissions open~I'm going to open commissions for pixel stuff~Commissions open~3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've wanted to open commissions for a while now ^-^;
So here are my prices... they may seem a bit high cause these do take a LOT of work
Each one has a general range of points, because depending on the character it can take extra work
NOTE: I WILL NOT DRAW HUMANS
Unless it's Phineas and Ferb, because I actually enjoy drawing in that style
Pixel Art - [examples]
1 character > 150-200 pts, depending on how complex the character
+ Extra character > 50-70 pts per character
(NOTE: They would all be done as head-shots, unless you request otherwise
also, I most likely won't shade them as it's easier on me, and it looks just as nice... or better; I'm not the best at shading xDD
They would look like the one I'm currently using <3 )
1 Icon > 30-50 pts - [example]

Jackolaterns, turnips, and stingy jackJack o lanterns.Jackolaterns, turnips, and stingy jack1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Probably the truest and most recognizable symbol for Halloween.
We all know the standard procedure; take a pumpkin, cut a cap for the top (And sometimes a hole at the bottom too) , empty the seeds, carve something seasonal on the visage, add a candle (or now-a-days and electric candle-LED light) and viola! Instant success.
It's even become something of a next level artform, with creations elaborate and three-dimensional.
Here's a little history of the Jackonlatern, courtesy of Wikipedia and several other dedicated sources.
The origin of Jack o' Lantern carving is uncertain. The carving of vegetables has been a common practice in many parts of the world, with gourds being the earliest plant species domesticated by humans c. 10,000 years ago, primarily for their carving potential.Gourds were used to carve lanterns by the Maori over 700 years ago,with the Maori word for a gourd also used to describe a lampshade. There is a common belief that the custom of carving jack-o'-

2 Nephi 28. False, Vain, and Foolish Doctrines to Avoid
Step 1. Nephi’s prophecies in 2 Nephi 28 help identify false doctrines and sinful practices that exist in our day. Identify and discuss what you believe are some modern day false doctrines and sinful practices that would parallel Nephi's teachings.
Some modern day false doctrines and sinful practices would be certain things such as drinking and eating things that we were commanded not to partake of, participating in inappropriate activities, denying the power of God and the gospel, preaching against the true gospel, glorifying Satan, preaching doctrine for wealth, popularity, and other wishes of men, pride, stealing, cheating, lying, being unchaste, leading away the c
