I don't get it...I don't get it - Severus - James - Harry - Lily - Jily - SnilyI don't get it...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a very long text about my opinion relating to Snily, Jily, Snape, Lily, James and Harry. I'm from Germany, so English is not my first language and I'am aware that I make mistakes. If you are a person who is easily offended by wrong grammar or typos there is a little red x in the right upper corner. The same counts for all who are easily offended by another opinion as their own and like to start flaming or trolling. - END OF WARNING
Seriously what is going on with some Snily fans?
This is the question I'm asking myself every time when I read sentences like: Oooohhhh they were so cute together" or They shared true love" or for a last example: They were so perfect for each other."
Maybe I only got a censored version of the Harry Potter books (and yes I have the last one in English, too), but I personally haven't found at least one word about Lily loving Severus o.O

I mean you are going to die! Think about it! One day, you are not going to be here, and others will. Things will keep happening but you will be dead. It's a weird thought. Some people hate the idea of death. I have done for ages and ages. But recently I have realised, I'm going to die so what's the point of worrying about it? I mean I have more important things to worry about like exams and homework and the fact that I literally live on the internet. But then again what's the point in worrying about those pointless things...I'm going to end up dying one day. YOU SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING?!? You worry about something, you're going to die so don't bother. You worry about dying, there are other things to do first. Problem solved. However I do want to achieve a few things in my life and i promise i shall:
1. Be happy and have fun (cause...why the hell not?)
2. Do something that actually helps people and makes a difference (somehow....)
3. STALK, FANGIRL AND THIEFSHIP! (ha. ha.
it's all about work!Every day i hear how talented I am - I think this is a incorrect. I think that talent is confused with work. I do believe there is talent in every artist, but it is only 5%- you see when we were younger we all drew the same. As we got older, many people stopped trying to draw due to comments, lack of interest or what ever other reason they put there. The others that continued, like all things learned that it is 95% work, frustration, tears, anger, determination, persistence, practice, practice, practice, & more practice that allows them to create the artwork you see. Many people just grade the artist on the end result, in reality they missed the struggle and battle that truly defines the piece created. I enjoy the 5% talent I see around me yet I respect the 95% dedication that these great artist put out that makes their works fantastic. I believe anyone can learn to draw- they just have to want it bad enough. and that means that they are willing to show us by putting the effort in to iit's all about work!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
10 Inspiring Quotes about Art1. As an artist your first loyalty is to your art. Unless this is the case, you're going to be a second-rate artist. "10 Inspiring Quotes about Art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
- Margaret Atwood
2. You must master fundamentals, but you can never do so by watching another man paint."
- Andrew Loomis, Figure Drawing for All it's Worth
3. The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely."
- Oscar Wilde
4. The practice of art is not to make a living, It is to make your soul grow."

- Austin Kleon, Steal Like an Artist
6. Only you can give the world your unique viewpoint."
- Neil Gaiman
7. Allow yourself to feel good about your work. Otherwise there is no point to doing it. If you never feel good about it, then you are just torturing yourself and then it is not worth it."

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Is Paul’s final scream the sound of his soul being released?
Can he have an existence outside of his corporeal being, outside “nothingness?”
Or is this spectral plane the only reality to the trusted – the only viewing platform offering a truly objective view?

Dante's Inferno, What's the Worst that Can Happen?Dante's Inferno, What's the Worst that Can Happen?2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Oct 17, 2012 by techgnotic
Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"

5 Great Podcasts for Artists and IllustratorsFor about two years I have been a big fan of listening to art podcasts while doing my artwork. In that time I have listened my way through many, many hours of illustrators sharing advice and experiences. There are some really informative gems out there and there are some more laid back, but still entertaining podcasts. All of them have one thing in common - they are for artists by artists. If you are an art student who is looking for a glipse into what working as an illustrator is actually like I would even more so recommend that you try out some of these links and give it a listen, you will learn a lot.5 Great Podcasts for Artists and Illustrators2 years ago in Personal More Like This

A smile is infectiousA smile is infectiousA smile is infectious1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You catch it like the flu.
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.
I passed around a corner
and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realised,
I'd passed it onto him.
I thought about that smile,
then realised its worth.
A single smile like mine
could travel 'round the earth.
So if you feel a smile begin,
don't leave it undetected.
Lets start an epidemic quick!
and get the world infected.

So many exciting things happening soon! We are getting close to being done working on the house we are fixing up, and we are hoping to be able to get everything ready to move in in the next couple months
Also Naomi is almost 11 months old now, and she is toddling around and jabbering about everything and she is so cute!
Then, on the art side of things, my visual art is slowly but surely improving, I'm dabbling in photoshop a bit with 5kypainter and Pappaprime's help.
Also HCS is getting stuff ready to perhaps commission several short stories from me, at a very very nice price. So that is exciting
Otherwise, happy new year everyone! I revamped my profile and journal. And I'm planning on having a nice feature from now on in my journal. This journal's theme is going to be "green" because it is my favorite color All the deviations below have less than 200 favs! So go give them some attention!

Hello to all!
I'm seeing great commotion around the last news, the ability to change our username.
I'm staying Egil21 and have no intent to change it, but I do understand that many people don't think much about it when they join and the fact is, after some years on dA, growing, maturing, improving their art, that name doesn't make sense any more, specially when you are called ~NarutoLoverForever and trying to sell street photography (this is just an example, it's not real, though I checked and there is an account with this name ).
As this ability is only available to Premium Members, I'm going to give 10 Premium Memberships (1month subs) to dA members who are not subscribed. Of course, I'm only giving to the ones who are my watchers or TheFavouriteShowcase's members/watchers.
Also, as I'm reaching the 100.000 Pageviews, I'll give 1 month sub or the correspondent points to the deviants who catch the 99.99
