dA Artist Raising $20k for LGBT Animated FilmdA Artist Raising $20k for LGBT Animated Film4 months ago in Interviews More Like This
New York City-based artist Alex Myung (~alexmyung) has started a Kickstarter project to raise $20,000 to create Arrival, an animated short film with a focus on the theme of coming out. Equalitopia sits down with Alex to discuss the project.
Currently, the project has raised almost $4,000 from 74 different backers, averaging out to about $52 per backer. Keep in mind that Kickstarter projects are “all or nothing,” meaning that if the project doesn’t reach its funding goal by Wednesday, February 20th, no funds will be transferred to the project.
Equalitopia: Could you tell us briefly about the storyline of Arrival?
Alex: Arrival is about a young boy growing up

[My Opinion Versus Everyone's] Please remember these are simply my opinions and are not meant to imply that you should agree or disagree nor should these prove to be offensive in any way; if I do come across displeasingly then you have my apologies beforehand, thank you.
I see a lot of comments here and there that go something like this...
"50 points?? Why would I pay 50 points for an adopt..."
"100 points? Are you sure you're not overpricing that...?!"
And I'm sure many of you have seen similar comments, now I understand that points aren't the easiest things to accumulate when you're fresh into dA or even well into your time here, as I was once a 13 year old kid who joined dA and got excited over her first 10 points ...which I kept and refused to spend because i
Step by Step : My Pixel BasicsStep by Step : My Pixel Basics3 months ago in Art Blogs & Mags More Like This
I've had people from time to time ask me how I pixel, and I've never really been sure how to explain. It hasn't been until the past few years that i've really thought too much about what I was doing beyond experimenting and learning new things. I think I've rounded out some basic guidelines I usually follow and a friend wanted some advice so I decided to attempt some sort of explanation
Below are some step by step images and commentary. Please note that there is no one right way to create a piece of art. This Step by Step is meant only to impart some understanding of how I do things . In Pixel art alone there are many many 'styles'. I encourage anyone reading to look up more than one tutorial and seek critique if trying to learn their own pixel style.
Please excuse any spelling mistakes, and take note that I use Photoshop 7.0, but the same principals sh

Some source cited from Wikipedia.org.
Project Educate: Steampunk:
Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction. It typically will feature steam powered vehicles not limited to trains, and is inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. It may also convey traces of a dystopian or post-apocalyptic environment, and often contains elements of the Wild West.
Before we called it 'Steampunk', there were elements in books and movies. The oldest precursor is the film 'Metropolis', a 1927 German expressionist science-fiction directed by Fritz Lang.
The term we now call it originated in the late 1980's, a variant of cyberpunk. It wasn't until 1995, though, that something was actually titled using it, Paul Di Filippo's Steampunk Trilogy.
For a long time,

Asexuality: destroying all prejudicesAsexuality: destroying all prejudices2 years ago in Projects More Like This
Way too many prejudices have been spread about asexuality, generally because of lack of information. This news article has been made for the sole purpose of - hopefully - eliminating them, and let everyone know what asexuality really is, and what it is not. It also aims to promote sites and links that can be useful to asexual people, to make them feel alright with themselves and part of a whole community.
What's asexuality? Asexual people are people who do not feel sexual attraction. This does not necessarily mean they are averse to sex, though: while most asexuals may prefer to not have it, some are just plain indifferent to it. Those who do choose to not have sex do not do so because of religious, moral or personal beliefs; they choose not to do it because of their lack of interest in it. But a complex matter such as asexuality could never be run out so easily, so let's precise a few, important things about asexual people and asexuality in general.
