Tips to Writing a Proper CharacterHello, it's your co-founder speaking! Right now, it's not a problem, but later on when the group gets bigger, this needs to be fixed. So I have officially written a how-to guide on making a great original fan character! Just follow these steps, and you're on your way to having some awesome OCs!Tips to Writing a Proper Character2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is always the hardest step in creating your character. It may seem time consuming and boring, but trust me, it'll help. Things to research include:
What do the characters in the universe look like?
Since this is the Marvel universe, you are limited to what normal humans look like. For example; Caucasians will most likely have blonde hair and blue eyes, African-Americans will have dark skin and most likely black hair, Asians will most likely have black hair and smaller eyes, etc. Also, take into account the most common features of each race. You wouldn't expect an African-American to have a long nose and small eyes, now would you? You don't see Lati
Some amazing people who deserve more watchers!Okay, so I'm a part of the group called The-Youngest-Artists , and every now and then when I check my Deviant Watch I look through the new stuff that was added to the group. So, today I also felt like looking at the pages of some of the artists featured there whose artwork stood out to me in particular (not saying that the rest of you aren't just as good), and I was amazed that they didn't have more page views or watches, so I decided that I might as well tell some more people about themSome amazing people who deserve more watchers!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
There are, of course, multiple other artists out there who also deserve to have more people looking at their art, and if you know of any I would like to check them out!
Click the pictures for the full image (I shrunk them so that you would be able to see all of the artists' names easily), and don't forget to check out more of their art or give them a watch! They deserve the views

OC SubmissionsWe've added a folder to the gallery called OC submissions. This is where the form below goes. Finally we've managed to put together a form for those who wish to submit their OCs to our group. You can still submit art of your OC(s) to their respective folders, but it is recommended you fill out the following form eventually for ease of critique. This form maps out everything so we, the admins, can critique every aspect of your character.OC Submissions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please bold the headings with this code (without the spaces): < b >< / b>. This makes your character submission neat and easy to look and read through. Make it easier on the admins!
If you do not wish to code the submission form yourself, I've made a pastebin where you can just copy the raw paste data here: http://pastebin.com/HjurQFXs
Even if your OC has a separate character/info sheet, you must fill this out. You can submit both to the group, but this one must be done and goes in the OC Submissions folder.
WomanAw i know i have promised so many times to make this journal but the truth is, it is not possible to say everything about women in just one journal or to feature all the artworks i would want .Woman10 months ago in Personal More Like This
So this is the 1st part of
Traditional B&W Female Portraits.
Never judge a woman by the way you think ,
and never compare her with the women you used to have around you.
She may be the angel you dreamed once, or maybe the devil you never have seen before.
I won't talk about the second type of women, because simply , don't be around them !
So simple !
If you respect yourself , your female nature, your dignity then never accept anything less than what you deserve.
Every woman deserves to have a special man in her life, to treat her like a princess , because he will always be the one and only king of her heart.
Are there such men in this world ? That treat to their woman like a princess ? That makes all her dreams come true ?
Well , i think we stop belie

J. Paul Getty - The Liberation of Masterpieces as Open Content
The J. Paul Getty Museum has initiated an Open Content Program to share, freely and without restriction, as many of the Getty’s digital resources as possible.
A first sharing of 4,600 high-resolution images of the Museum’s collection, including many masterworks, has just been made available and all are free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose.
In a brilliant stroke, the Getty Museum has liberated one of the top collections of art in the world not just for access but for use. The museum is literally “beaming up” the great works in its collection as living resources within the arts themselves, for study, for sheer per

There is only about 10 days to get the entries in.. and I still haven't gotten a loooootttt of those entries. I sent around reminders but if I don't get them in, it's your fault LOL cos I did remind you all.
Hopefully you all had fun designing, those of you have done so. I can't wait to start judging, it's going to be a massive task because I literally love all of them. <3
Anyway, get those entries in!
Hey guys! I haven't updated in awhile. I hope you are all getting your entries done and dusted. There is only a little over 2 weeks left in the competition.
Just to clarify, the competitions results will not be released on the 31st. This is when I stop accepting entries. I may make exceptions if it's only a couple of deviants but if not, then that's the cut off. I will give myself between 1-2 weeks to judge depending on whether or not I have enough cash to spare. It doesn't really amount to a lot, but I would like to attempt to have it t

Drew is getting lonely And we're getting another dog IRL! ^^ ... But I don't know how to design him D:
So that's where you come in
For fabulous prizes, you just design a character, in any common species (it doesn't have to be a dog, it can be... anything but a cat. Though it can be a dog or wolf if you'd like!) It's all about the design. Be as creative as you'd like! :3
Also, if you want to donate prices for the contest (could be anything from points to a chibi commission, etc.), send me a note! I would really appreciate it!
You must be my watcher to participate in this contest.
The charrie must be designed by you, though you can use bases if you'd like (but it would be nice if you drew it yourself)

Pro-Bending in Real LifeI've come up with a system of faking a game or two of real-life pro-bending.Pro-Bending in Real Life2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Earthbenders have a limited number of green Frisbees they can throw at the other team. Maybe somewhere around 25. But they can throw the Frisbees back that were thrown at them as well. Waterbenders are given ultra powerful water guns that they must refill without getting hit from time to time. Firebenders was the real challenge here, but I've come up with a solution. A butt load of red and orange koosh balls! (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_kVBIKsx0ZqQ/SvHLfk-QS0I/AAAAAAAABIc/Eeijvn9tjCc/s400/Orange_Koosh_Ball.JPG)
Now, because none of these things are powerful enough to actually knock someone out of the ring, there's instead a time limit. By the end of that time limit, two refs will tally up just who got hit and how many time. Whichever team suffered the most hits loses.

Borderline Personality DisorderPeople with BPD often have an unstable sense of who they are. That is, their self-image or sense of self often rapidly changes. They typically view themselves as evil or bad, and sometimes they may feel as if they don't exist at all. This unstable self-image can lead to frequent changes in jobs, friendships, goals, values and gender identity.Borderline Personality Disorder3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Relationships are usually in turmoil. People with BPD often experience a love-hate relationship with others. They may idealize someone one moment and then abruptly and dramatically shift to fury and hate over perceived slights or even misunderstandings. This is because people with the disorder have difficulty accepting gray areas things are either black or white. For instance, in the eyes of a person with BPD, someone is either good or evil. And that same person may be good one day and evil the next.
In addition, people with BPD often engage in impulsive and risky behavior. This behavior often winds up hurting them, whether emotionally, fin

How To Not Be a Jerk...on the internet. Gonna keep this simple and to the point.How To Not Be a Jerk2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Do not call someone names or speak ill of them to others. If they did something wrong and you want to do something about it, talk to them privately.
If that doesn't work, just ignore them.
Guess what? Blocking works. Block someone if they're upsetting you and you aren't able to handle it.
If you find someone who has 'bad art' in your standards, don't comment on their art/page/journal about how bad their art is. Instead, click off their page.
If the 'bad' artist is asking for feedback, make sure it's constructive. If you mention that their anatomy is bad, explain how they can fix it. Try to mention something that they're doing good at as well. Be positive.
Do not talk shit about someone behind their back, no matter how bad your day was, or whatever other bullshit excuse you have. There's always a chance they could find your shit comment if you'
