9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS1. UNIVERSALITY - Acrylic are probably the most versatile of paints. You can thin them with water and use as watercolor (they will remain permanent upon drying, unlike watercolor), apply them in full strength, create textures.9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. COMBINABLE - This medium is very suitable to be combined with anything you wish - watercolor, ink, pencils, oils... Free your imagination and experiment!
3. NUMEROUS SUITABLE SURFACES - Acrylics can be used on paper, canvas, wood, metal and many more surfaces (this is true, even though they don't adhere towards some surfaces as promptly as oils). This is a great advantage, when you get used to this medium, you can paint at whatever material you've got available.
4. DON'T STINK - That's right, all of you that have experienced headaches caused by oil paint might just appreciate an acrylic vacation!
5. FAST DRYING TIME - Composition doesn't seem right after you put down your first layer? This is not a problem, wait half an hour

THE NEXT THREE YEARS OF MY LIFE
I had received a job offer at Microsoft. I guess this could have been one of my first 'big time' jobs, so I was a little ecstatic. It felt like a slow build to get to this point, after numerous indie games and under the table freelance jobs, but finally it had come.
I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I

Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this.
You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.
A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing,

Kingdom Hearts Final Mix MovieHere is a little treat for all with a Keyblade wielded in their hearts. I edit together all the cutscenes of the first Kingdom Hearts. I also added the secrets, and deleted scene into the film and some music with some the fight sequence. It's not as good as the Birth By Sleep film...but that's only because most of the story are in text (not sure why he did it that way?)

Remember what I wrote in the "Stuff..." journal? We are a "learning" group, so look at what others are doing, read with an open mind any suggestions being made, and understand why your deviation did not pass "quality control". If your entry is not accepted, and there's enough time, you can always fix the problem, or start over again. Please don't go off in a huff like it's all my fault. That's very annoying.
Okay, let's get started on our new challenge!

The new challenge is call "Couples In Love", and it features rose stock by UmbraDeNoapte-Stock,YvaineGlareStock, and la-chatte-noire, and heart texture stock from Aramisdream.

I have no group news, so let's go on to our new challenge, shall we?
Our New Challenge
Spring is right around the corner, so I thought we do something different in celebration of the Vernal Equinox .
Our new challenge is called "Nesting Birds", and it features the nest stock of GRANNYSATTICSTOCK, SublimeBudd, and ItsAllStock..
The nests can be on the ground or in a tree, but it must be large and easily seen. This is the required stock and it is the most important stock, so don't make it small and hidden in the environment. Look at the original nest stock. I chose this stock to be used as is, not as a small version of itself.
In addition, you're placing a "half human-half bird creature" into the nest. In other words, the "bird" of this challenge is part human. How much bird versus how much human it takes to create the "bird" is completely up to you.
I don't have an example for you, but I think you get
'Story Book' Challenge!FIRST, IMPORTANT GROUP NEWS--PLEASE READ'Story Book' Challenge!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I've been informed that some of you are changing the level you participate under from one challenge to another. That is, you're suppose to be a level 3 according to your skills that you've shown, but you'll participate for one challenge as a level 4. Then the next challenge you'll return to level 3. The same happens between level 3 and level 2.
This is a big "no, no"! We're in levels for 2 reasons: 1) So that you are not participating with deviants who have more skills and better concepts then you do; and, 2) You're not participating with deviants who you are more skilled then and can easily out shine.
It's just not fair to keep changing your level a round according to how you feel about a particular challenge deviation. If it was that way, I would be changing my level from week to week as well. Not all of my deviations get picked as a winning image, not all of them do I feel good about, and it may be the same with you. But changing your s

I'm very proud of all of your who participated making this a successful challenge. It was fun, wasn't it!
There are a few members that I think are ready to move from level 2 and level 3. I need to see maybe one more deviation before I decide to move a couple of members up one level. So, when I contact you, and you agree with me that you're ready, let's level you up!
Before we get to the picks, let me remind you of our current challenge. All ready there are a few members who have created their entry into the "Couples In Love" challenge, and boy are they good. You can see them in our gallery under Featured and the challenge folder.
The challenge ends on February 10th, which is plenty of time to find stock and create an entry yourself. Don't wait until the last minute! You want to get your entry in as early as you can just in case there is a "problem" with your devia

Have You Guys Ever Had That FEELING?Where you're happy, but sad at the same time? You think you know what you're sad about, but you never know for sure if THAT'S the reason. And somehow, because who you are, you try to stay the confident and strong person everyone thinks you are?Have You Guys Ever Had That FEELING?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been told to be a strong person. I've done a lot of things on my own, and had many support from friends who are willing to give. I appreciate them, but sometimes, I feel like my strength could be nothing compared to theirs or others. Lately, I just feel like I want to quit or take a break. But I know I shouldn't...I feel like I'm being weak and just over thinking things like I usually do. I try to be a leader, I try to be so many things, but deep down, I'm yearning for myself to be more.
I guess I'm just missing certain things in my life. I do try hard to do what I can, but i guess...pressure just gets to me to snap at ANY given moment. I think I'm afraid that this happy and confident person I'm trying to be everyday is a facade to the tort

Character Design: An introductionCharacter Design: An introduction3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a
