Discussion - Giant Humans in the MediaOkay, you guys. This has been on my mind for quite a long time...Discussion - Giant Humans in the Media2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why aren't there any more pieces of media about giant humans or humanoids?
What has happened to the collective medium that it has cast away giant humans as a plot point? Have they "grown out of it", or are they simply shunning it for whatever reasons?
I can offer up a few arguments, as well as plenty of counterarguments.
1. "Giant human stories are stupid and corny/cheesy!"
Back in an era fearful of nuclear radiation, not knowing its effects on the human race and other creatures, many movies studios were keen on making a quick buck on exploiting this fear, usually through the idea of gigantifying creatures due to such exotic rays. One such radiation-based growth was "The Amazing Colossal Man", A.K.A. Glenn Manning, a human exposed to plutonium radiation that ends up growing to gigantic heights, with his heart and sanity unable to catch up. Other giant human stories of this era were "Attack of the 50 Foot Wo

TIPS AND ADVICEOver the last few weeks I’ve been getting lots of requests for tips and advice. So I thought instead of answering each one I will give an overall guide to what I’ve learnt over the last year using graphite. And some of the things I’m going to say may sound very obvious but I’m trying to cater for artists of all levels so just ignore the bits you already know (I apologise for how long this is).TIPS AND ADVICE1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But before I go on I must point out though, that I am no expert and this is just what I’ve found works for me so may not work for everyone. And I have only really started getting used to using graphite pencils recently, as I had not drawn for 11 years until September 2012. And so I am still learning myself and have only found out what works for me from allot of practising and trial and error. Also I am not going to go into doing skin textures as I’m still learning what works and it’s far too complicated to describe on here.

It doesn't feel that long - but in a few more years I'll have been on this site for half my life. Sheesh!
I've improved so much having an audience to show work to, even if the point of the work wasn't an audience - just having a platform from which I could do anything at all has been really amazing for me over the years.
And then... PMD-e... which has been a really tremendous learning experience for me (and others!), in so many ways. I don't want to turn this journal sappy or anything, but I've been lucky to have met so many people and have gotten the chance to help create a community with its ups and downs.
And... speaking of such...
I'll be making a journal later about the state of PMD-e right now - I know the updates have been sporadic, and this has been for a few reasons. I've been thinking about how to word things for a few days now, and I don't think I've quite gotten it yet.
Anyway, for those of you who've been around since

If you know of any Deviants that violate the rules, report them, and if necessary, send the info Kira-of-deviantART's way. I've seen them on every spammer account I've seen so far, even the ones that joined the very same day [it's not hard to catch spammers after they've spammed]. They've done a very good job at keeping dA as spam-free as possible, so if a Deviant needs banning, inform Kira-of-deviantART. They'll make short work of rule breakers.
I've gotten quite a few people banned lately.

Love For deviantARTLove For deviantART2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you, deviantART.
For three years, I have been a Deviant,
And none of those three years were wasted here.
And in those three years,
I've met an unimaginable amount of fantastic people,
I've received great amounts of commentary and criticism on my Deviations,
I've found new art styles I'd never thought I'd be any good at,
And much, much more.
I've come to know this site as many things.
But never bad.
Because thanks to this site, I've gotten where I am now.
And it's not just the best website I've ever come to join,
It's also the best community I've ever had the pleasure of becoming a part of.
So thank you, deviantART,
For making me proud to call myself a Deviant.

Response To The
"Grow the Fuck Up" Manifesto
I: the creative, intelligent, self-confident, and eclectic,
...am tired of people using the word "we" as if they knowingly speak for the majority.
Now, reading the GFU Manifesto, I won't say that I entirely disagree. I agree that "part of living in the real world is going to be offensive. And, when we are offended, we are brave enough when sufficiently offended, to peacefully and courteously confront that which offends us and try to resolve it on our own; it is our responsibility as human beings to do so."
However, part of our responsibility as human beings is to accept responsibility for wrongdoings. In this case, that would be submitting works to a website that violate the rules that you agreed to abide by whe

I have a hat! Im now a Fan art Community VolunteerHiya Ryceballs. If you look at my name today you may notice somthing is a bit different, hmm? Notice anything different? No I didn't lose weight, ok you may notice that the * sign is now replaced by a ^ sign. Ok what does that mean? It means I'm now officially a Community Volunteer of Deviantart! In particular the Fan Art section. Ok so what does THAT mean? It means I'll be one of the guys who features Daily Deviation of amazing artworks. And yes I will be writing my DD guideline later in the day, I've only been a Volunteer for half a day and I didn't even announce it until now, but somehow people are already sending me Daily Deviation suggestions. Well I gota say I have already made my first DD feature... that mysterious person will receive the news tomorrow hehe. I will also be helping out in the community a bit more now in whatever they need.

Stolen WorkUPDATE:Stolen Work2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you for all the messages, and I hope some of you may have recognised some of the other stolen work in her gallery.
I only had time to report one deviation this morning and when I came to report the others this evening, her gallery seemed to be empty, so I assumed all the work had been removed, until I read some of the messages below. I didn't realise you could hide your gallery like that!
I have now reported all 7 deviations....wouldn't it be nice if dA thought of allowing you to do this on one form, if all the work is in one gallery, rather than filling in so many separate forms!
I did send the girl a note this morning, to give her the chance to explain, in case it was some sort of mistake, but had no reply, she just hid her gallery.
Hopefully dA will do something about this!
