Mythical Creatures Semi-Finalists!We challenged everyone to come up with a mythical creature design featuring fantastical beasts renowned in folklore and myth. You gave us thousands of awesome designs with unicorns, dragons, monsters, and more, which were then voted on by the deviantART community. The results are epic -- even legendary! We've calculated the votes and now we're ready to present the 100 most-voted-for designs! From these designs our judges damphyr, IreneAdler76, and renonevada will narrow it down and pick the two Finalists. Each Finalist will be awarded $1,500 cash and receive 20 T-Shirts with their design printed on them to give away to friends and family. Plus, both T-Shirts will be available for purchase in the deviantART T-Shirts & Gear Shop.Mythical Creatures Semi-Finalists!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The FX Channel has just concluded the highly successful third season of its American Horror Story series.
Each season has featured its own stand-alone storyline, insuring against series stagnation and creating a story competition as the ever-ravenous horror audience eagerly awaits each season’s next outrageous attempt to top the last. Coven, the third entry in the series, a witchcraft genre entry, has not disappointed. Its star, Jessica Lange, was nominated for a Golden Globe. Critical reception, despite the considerable gory fx (envelope-pushing for net
Alice X. Z. - Living Rainbow Taking FlightThe vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable. The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.Alice X. Z. - Living Rainbow Taking Flight2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

Using My Shit.....When creating work and putting out on the Internet there is a certain "cost of doing buisness" that I feel should be assumed: People will steal your shit.Using My Shit.....5 years ago in Personal More Like This
For the purpose of this entry, I'll define what stealing is: taking or using something that does not belong to you or without asking and getting permission to use it.
I also take for granted that there is some karmic justice/balance that I did some discretionary offense in my youth that I'm now paying the price for. No sweat, no worries. But I do wonder from time to time that people mistake my indifference as weakness.
If I wanted to I could really make someone's life a legal hell. I have resources at my disposal that if people think I'm bluffing when I call them on stealing they would be sorely mistaken. My wife is an Attorney and I worked as a Paralegal for 7 years at several DC law firms and know several lawyers that work specifically in Intellectual Property law who look at infringement cases as sport, espec

Some of these are kind of unoriginal...
Thanks goes to my sister :iconAmericaismyhero: for helping me come up with ideas
Italy-Squire (that way, they would match like they did last year)
Japan- Black cat
America- Captain America (due to the Avengers Movie coming out earlier this year, it makes a lot of sense)
England- Mad Hatter (NOT the Johnny Depp one or like Ukraine's from last year, more like the original one from the book)
France- Erik from Phantom of the Opera
Russia- MALE ballet dancer (people would be too intimidated to laugh)
China- *censored due to copyright issues*
Prussia- Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas
Romano- member of the Italian Mafia
Austria- Victor from Corpse Bride
Hungary- Emily from Corpse Bride
Spain- The Tomato Box Fairy (I imagine he would have heard about it from Romano who was told by Italy)
Poland- Aurora from Sleeping
Disney Songtalia ContestSo, partly in honor of passing 1,000 views and partly because I've been sitting on this idea for a while and I really want to use it…I'm hosting a contest! And, as the title implies, it's all about combining Disney songs and Hetalia! Essentially I want you to take a Disney song and either use it for inspiration or put it into a fan art or fan fiction.Disney Songtalia Contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- You must choose a song from a Disney movie. It must have words and I would prefer it to be sung by a character, though I will take art/stories based on songs like 'The Circle of Life' from the Lion King.
- Your entry must feature at least one Hetalia character.
- It can be any kind of fan art/ fan fiction that you like. I'm not picky. I'll take romance, angst, humor, drama, etc; yaoi pairings, straight pairings, no pairings, OCs, and reader-inserts, etc; one shots, series, comics, portraits, etc. Essentially it just has to fall into the category of fan art/fiction.
- Because I don't want to have a bunch of entri
