The gift givers and traders journal!WHAT is this again? Well, you must know those times when you have a lot of (drawing) work to do but you want a break and you just want to draw something for yourself? You draw your own characters but you seem to get stuck with them? You want to draw something else!The gift givers and traders journal!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Well now there is this journal! (if it works... haha!) But what is it???
You want to draw something else, maybe you like to try and draw someone else's character (like when you draw a gift or trade) but you don't want to make to much of it, you just feel like drawing RIGHT NAOW and you don't necessarily need something in return.
In a comment on this journal post a link to a drawing of a character of yours that you like to offer to other people to draw. I will post a thumb in this journal of that drawing and when someone gets bored he/she can pick a character/drawing from this journal and draw it. I hope that, when this works this journal will be full of thumbnails of drawings that anyone can pick

Picks the nicest people and eats them.
Yeah, it eats them.
And there they are, swallowed by something so
massive, and so tempting.
They try to fight it, they cry,
they yell, they cut, they change.
That's because it doesn't leave.
You can fight, but it won't leave.
You can get better, or worse, but
it'll always be there. Reminding you of who
you were, who you are, and who you're
going to be.
And it'll never let you understand, or
win any battles, or see the light.
Because it's evil, and
it consumed you, remember?
And then someone comes along.
Someone just like you, but better.
And they slash a huge hole in the darkness.
And you can finally see, and you've been
And you're floating up, waiting for the air you've
wanted for so long, and then you stop.
In the middle, between the darkness and the light.
You can see both with your very eyes, and
you don't know what's happening.
So you simply let it happen.
And then you drown.
iMAME FTW !!!!So the other day Christmas arrived early for a lot of retro gamers - and this is sort of a big deal cuz you see this magical app called iMAME showed up , mysteriously approved on the app store !iMAME FTW !!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So What is it ? First of M.A.M.E stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator .
U See - Back in the days when some of the best video games cost .25 cents to play at your local convenience store or arcade/pool hall, theyve become extinct and taboo. Around the late 90's These games were then CLONED and EMULATED to be played on your PC/MAC ! a la MAME ! Basically allowing you to play those arcade classics on your home computer They're actually emulated really well that you can even see the ' insert coin ' flashing on the screen ! Mame has been around for many many years and just recently--- its been ported to iOS devices like your iPHONE .. iPAD iTOUCH ! Best thing about this is you don't even need to jailbreak your iPhone ( which i am tot

art theft spread aroundhttp://vk.com/art.ideasart theft spread around3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I guess some of you might have already seen this in `loish 's journal, but I think we should spread this around.
Basically, this community is using a BUNCH of artists' works (my has already been taken down, since I've asked and linked to it), but from those I've recognized the community still uses `loish, *andrahilde , *Apofiss, *boomerr and a whole lot of other DA artists' drawings for their purposes, without A SINGLE CREDIT.
They even make (made) magnets for selling using the works.
More of that, as I've been trying to contact the admins of this group, and I've been told that "Oh, don't worry, nobody was making millions using your work" and "Don't worry, there were only a few magnet sells and the community doesn't do it anymore blah blah". As I tried to make them understand they have NO RIGHTS for using other deviants' works whatever the hell they want without giving the original artist credit I got told that " I do never erase the artist
Authentic CitizenshipOnce Again, The Room Fell Away. The prodigious artistic and cultural exchange that we have all committed ourselves to building, to participating in and to sharing with each other every day at deviantART often occurs in RL on the decks of HQ as well. One of the best aspects of being in my position here at deviantART is the privilege to curate salons with artists of every medium and success level imaginable, art appreciators, writers, and educators from all points of light within the deviantART community inviting them to make the trek to HQ for what always manifests as an inspiring, thoughtful, educative, and enlightening dialogue. But sometimes, sometimes, things rise to a whole other level. You suddenly find yourself magically reaching that special deviantART "destination" that is a connection point of art, life, community and communication that has no specific Office # designation.

How to : Find Art ThievesPlease this journal, so that a lot of people can read it.How to : Find Art Thieves4 months ago in Photography More Like This
I noticed that a lot of people don't know how to search for their photos on the internet, so here is a short tutorial. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about art thieves, but i still think it is important to look out for them.
1. visit Google.com
2. Go to the page of the photo you want to search and click "show image"
3. Copy the Link and paste it into google.
4. This page should open, click "search by image".
5. Now you can browse trough the results.
6. The less results the happier you should be.
EDIT : You can also use websites like : tineye.com and iqdb.com
This was pointed out to me by some people, personally i have no experience with them, but i am sure that they work too.

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
