WARNING, LONG JOURNAL
To tell you the truth, This journal entry should not have been here in the first place. but because of the fact that some Muslim brothers and sisters may not always know how to react in a way that reflect their true intentions or aim, I feel the necessity to write something about this issue and express my personal opinion about it.
From time to time, we hear about some people making sick cartoons depicting a corrupted doodle of the last prophet of the God, Mohammed -peace and blessings be upon him-. sometimes we also hear of some movies made for the sole purpose to vilify Islam and insult the prophet. I am not going to discuss whether these people have right to express themselves in such a way or not. the subject was covered countless times and it is pointless to repeat. what I want to talk about is the Muslim reaction and how it should be.
Usually, when we hear of such things (movie, cartoon, book...) we hear of the rea
Anti-Islamic websitesAssalaamu alaikum [Peace be to you],Anti-Islamic websites2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For Muslim brothers and sisters,
A questioner asked: "People are emailing me websites that attack Islam. They say... that we should send this out to everyone and tell them about it. But is this a good idea to send these sites to everyone? What about the non-Muslims? Should we tell them to be careful too? What should be done? Can we visit them at all? Should we warn others?"
One of the downsides of the internet is that it has given our critics and enemies an opportunity to publicly defame the religion of Islam. I guess this is the price of having freedom of speech. Sometimes you have to read and hear things which are just plain detestable.
The fact of the matter is that its enemies have defamed Islam from the very beginning and this is not about to change anytime soon. What's more, since Muslims are in a very weak position these days, the amount of anti-Islamic propaganda is on the rise from many quarters. I am sure we have all encountered numerous w
Section 66 Contest__________Official Section 66 Contest Information__________Section 66 Contest2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Contest Theme: Section 66
The theme of this contest is Section 66 and the members within it. All pictures have to feature at least one of these individuals, although the choice of which is completely up to the artist. The activity, pose, and situation that the artist depicts the character(s) in is completely up to them. (Rules can be found lower in this journal as to what grading specifications the entries will be judged by.)
What you'll see below is information regarding Section 66 and the Bloodline members, both in written form and in picture references. Each character picture has personality and history information in the artist's comments that you can use to better understand the subject. Please be sure to read everything that you can in order to have the best grip on the character that you choose.
Thank You!Thank you guys so much for the deviousness award! But it's really not just this award, thank you all for the support through out the years.Thank You!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I can honestly say that I grew up with this community and everyone here has taught me so much, and not just about art, but also on how to be a person. When I first got this account at the age of 12, I could have never imagined how much it has shaped my life and career. It sounds cliche but I probably wouldn't have became an artist if it hadn't been for everyone here on deviantART. Through all of the ups and downs in life, the community has always been the support and inspiration that kept me going.
I hope to give back as much as everyone has given me. I will continue to create more comics, tutorials and art in the future. I will never stop, and I have you all to thank for that.
So truly, thank you!

Alright, we are in an Art community here where people express themselves through Art.
well, that's great.
we have people of different faiths and religions here in a great community.
From time to time, there are some people who, through ignorance or hate, produce something to insult Islam or represent Islam in an offensive manner that has no truth. some people try to make a bad representation of the last prophet of Islam -peace and blessings be upon him- hoping it would offend Muslims. these people believe that this is their right of free expression. well, not all people would agree about it, but this is not the issue I want to talk about.
Now it's a fact there is a bunch of people trying to spread a corrupted image of Islam. these people All have crappy art style. if I had a chimp, I am pretty sure he would draw better. but this is also not the issue.
Now these people believe that Islam is against freedom
Promote yourself!Hi,Promote yourself!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
since we're a fairly large group, we often get notes asking us to promote things, and also comments to our front page advertising something.
Sending notes is great for contests that you want to have promoted in this group, and I'll try to put them into blogs whenever I have the time.
If you don't want to wait for that or want to promote something else, please don't write it on our front page, that's spam. Instead, you can post below this blog and other members can find your comments here.
I will make blogs with your advertisements in them, so that they will be seen by as many people as possible.
Everyone gets to be featured once, and for one thing only. If you don't make yourself clear, I'll just choose one thing.
If you want to make multiple comments, please reply to your first comment. That way, it will be seen by everyone who looks at your first comment, which is linked in the blog.
I won't feature you twice, because right now there's a high demand and I think

Together with some others we could name a lot more.
How about you? anything like this ever happened to you?
Things you shouldn't say to an artist.
1 Can you do the artwork for this job for free? It will be a good promotional piece for you. Get you some word to mouth advertising.
2 Mom Look! That painting is just like that picture you downloaded from the internet and got framed for the living room.
3 Wow. You charge THAT much? You make it look so easy.
4 If you don't make it so detailed... Just scribble something down... Can I get it cheaper?
5 If you use that piece you already got and change it a little, can I get it cheaper? You already have done most of it.
6 I can use a Photoshop filter to do that exact same thing.
7 You are lucky... you don't have to work, you just have to sit and paint all day.

Nayzak! come to my rescue!Assalaamu alaikum[peace be to you],Nayzak! come to my rescue!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
For most of you, this journal is unimportant. it's just me talking about some notes I received. so you can just skip it.
I'm making this journal because I got a really big number of these cases.
it goes like this:
person A (a Muslim) starts a discussion with person B (Islam hater).
then when the discussion reaches a level where A seems to be blocked or can't provide strong arguments or is faced with insults and strong language, A comes to me and asks me to intervene in order to "convince" B.
My usual reply to this specific kind of requests is to decline and refuse to help. simply because I believe this is wrong for the following reasons:
1- if you don't have enough knowledge to engage in a debate, you shouldn't. you risk giving wrong facts and false information about the subject.
2- it's not a good habit to start things that you can't finish. if you always count on others to help you, you'll never learn enou

Anyway, I'm one of the new admins here-I'm so super excited to be here, and be able to help this wonderful group. Today I'm just going to make a little blog about how to deal with criticism. Especially as artists, we all get it. So, I'll try and help. ♥How to deal with criticism?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Listen up. Figure out whether the criticism is constructive or simply rude. If criticism could be helpful, lend all ears and try to learn from it instead of getting defensive.
2. Respond calmly. Be respectful no matter what, and thank someone if the feedback is useful. If the critique is uncalled for (that story you wrote was crap!), kill 'em with kindness. A simple smile makes you the bigger person.
3. Don’t take it personally. Try to remove yourself from the situation and focus on what’s being critiqued.
4. Keep on keepin' on. Remember that the criticism represents just one person’s point of view. Know what your strengths are a

Hopefully I don't sound like too much of an idiot >_> The time lapse is of the painting that I continued to work on (through livestream). It's in HD so the quality is quite nice. The tutorial doesn't go through to the end of the painting. It just covers the way I paint, if you want to watch more of it, the rest of the painting is available to watch on demand through my Livestream channel.
