Podcast, and Pin-Up Art: A RantI did a podcast with :iconKanish:! Please excuse my muffling microphone, my audio equipment is terrible... -_-Podcast, and Pin-Up Art: A Rant3 months ago in Personal More Like This
We talked about a bunch of stuff, from dinosaurs, concept art, design, movies, my thought process on art in general.
The last segment is about me and pin-up art, drawing women, and what that means for me as an artist. I wasn't particularly articulate but I think I was being honest about why I do it. I've had time to mull over it and talk with other artists, because I think it's an interesting impulse that people have to make pin-up art. For me it starts as a simple endeavor; I'm a horny, heterosexual male, and I find women aesthetically pleasing and incredibly hard to draw. I'm not going to pretend that isn't part of it. Is that the reason why I make pin-up art? I don't think so, because those are universal truths that everyone knows and is familiar with. There's plenty of horny males that don't draw pin-u

--Also, you may notice that some of the contests listed below do not have poetry or prose specified. This is because the contest allows both or I have not been able to determine if they want one or the other specifically.
Let's get this boat rolling with updates again! Remember to send me a contest that is Literature specific if you know of one not listed from Deviantart.
Are you finding it difficult to be inspired? Are you tired of the mundane routine? Are you looking for a fun, new way to write creatively?
We would like to begin listing Literature-specific contests for your leisure to look through. A contest is a great way to start a new form or writing, think about a theme a different way, or even just to try something unusual to your daily routine. We hope this list is a help to all who look forward to discovering contests and embarking on a fresh path.

10 Years of ControversyOver the past couple days I’ve had a number of people write me comments basically saying “You’re becoming too preachy, you’ve lost a fan.” And outside the silliness of publicly mic-dropping like that, it got me wondering... what?10 Years of Controversy4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Ya see, It’s always surprises me when someone says that I’m becoming too preachy, when in fact I’ve been preachy from the beginning. Don’t believe me? Take a look below!
This is not a complete list by any stretch of the imagination, but these are essentially THE MOST controversial comics and illustrations I’ve ever done in the past 10 years.

Sucker PunchedThis is a LONG one so settle in!Sucker Punched10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve been re-watching Sucker Punch a lot lately and have been humorously admiring how misunderstood it is. It’s almost comical how a movie that comes right out and says “I am about the negative connotations surrounding the constant sexual abuse and objectification that women endure,” gets reviewed and dismissed as “just another pandering male geek fantasy of objectified sexualized women.”
I could write a book on the various subtle metaphors and messages Sucker Punch visualizes, but I don’t wanna bore you all. But to demonstrate what I mean let’s just dissect a small piece of it.
Before we begin we need to understand two things. First, Director Zach Snyder made the film with the express intent of it being a feminist critique on geek culture. If you don’t believe me, hear it from his own words: http://www.filmschoolrejects.com/features/interview-zack-snyder-on-the-sexuality-and-world
Obsessive Character DisorderI'm not exactly sure why there appears to be such a warzone where characters are concerned. Maybe it's just because I don't swim in the soup of fandom or fanfiction (and in a roleplay sense, have only returned recently), but I guess I just find the whole thing entirely baffling. Roleplay and fanfiction become these massive tiers of Serious Business that are destructive to the creative process. They stagnate and shame while simultaneously churning out high emotion, all the while distracting anyone who wants to learn from shit that will actually be useful to them if they want to write.Obsessive Character Disorder2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I feel the need to give a disclaimer that A) I think fandoms can be incredibly stupid even at their best, B) fanfiction that is "not horribly written" is usually being labeled as such by people who don't and can't know better because their point of reference and experiences are so lacking, and C) even as a writer, I don't understand how character becomes such Serious Business.

New Groups Affiliates feature launched! Ask, and you shall receive!New Groups Affiliates feature launched!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
DeviantART's Groups platform has been officially launched and out the door for just under a month. In that time, we've seen the creation of 31,000 groups, with over 1.2 million deviants participating. Looking ahead, we're eager to develop and release the Groups enhancements deviants want most -- the enhancements you tell us will have the most impact on your Groups experience and the Groups ecosystem.
With that in mind, we're happy to launch something that's been very high on the list of requests -- the official Groups Affiliates feature!
It's easy to get started!
1. Navigate to your group
(Keep in mind that, by default, only Founders and Co-Founders have the privilege to send affiliation requests.)

I opened a new DarkArt Collection - a group, where I want to gather deviant's DarkArt -, for creating a showroom, for bringing together an assenblage of your best dark works, so that everybody can get inspired and pick up some favs for making a feature.
Submissions are not possible, (I hate this procedure of accepting and declining), I will ask you, I will invite your works and it would be nice if you take part in this project.

Publishing ScamsCopied and pasted from my blog since deviantART's been having this problem for a while now. I had meant to post something on this matter back in October since it was when I noticed more and more "publishers" like this popping up on the site, but never got around to it. Of course, with all of these unprofessional publishers coming out of the woodwork again recently, I thought I'd share what I shared on my blog here.Publishing Scams1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
What is a scam publisher?
Essentially, a scam publisher is a press that cheats authors into believing that they are getting traditionally published by their rules and guidelines. However, if you read the fine print, you'll see that "traditionally" publishing you is not at all what's happening. This can range from promising royalties which never come, making you pay a fee to be published, or even stem from lack of professionalism. While the term "scam" usually means forcing you to pay, there are many other

Speedpaint ChallengeNO UPDATES UNTIL 13th OF AUGUST!Speedpaint Challenge2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As there is no actual speed paint challenges from Sparkyyy at the moment, I still feel the last challenges really pushed me forward and I want to keep on it. So Angelique, Egbu and RockOnGuy had this idea to have a few images we choose to do for the month.
You can do them in any order and when ever you can get a study done. Same rules apply, 2hr time limit, no tracing, no color picking. The images you chose should be feasible to do within the 2hr time limit.
We focus on Portraits this month.
Anyone can join in and practice, just add a comment or send a note of your work! ^^
As we are doing this to get better it would be nice of the participating artists to also look out for their fellows pictures and give helpful comments. Please be constructive and motivating - but most important - comment!
