CopycatsIt's true - no one in this world can be 100% original and there is nothing wrong with being inspired. But when someone attempts to make a duplicate of your image in your style using your art as a raw template/blueprint, that's what I call copying.Copycats1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you decide to copy someone else's work, the least you can do is credit or put your own ideas into it. Don't use or attempt to duplicate their layout. Don't make a blueprint out of their art and use it for your own. There is a big difference between inspiration and copying! Have some pride in yourself! Don't copy others for the sake of your PRIDE. If you get heavily inspired, don't leave out the credits. If you want to become an artist or fulfill it as a serious hobby, act like an artist with individuality. Try to be unique, find your own style, and stop using others for your own benefit. Even if you do copy, don't think that the original creator of the idea may never find yo

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,

The New Street Photographer's ManifestoFebruary 7, 2013/by techgnoticThe New Street Photographer's Manifesto2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Street photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson called it the “decisive moment”— the captured instant when all the photograph’s elements come together to tell a story in a way a text narrative of thousands of words could never begin to. It is what hooks people, both practitioners and advocate-devotees, on the art form. It is uniquely completely immersive in life— step out into the streets— in which the moment of artistic epiphany can never be guessed at until it suddenly happens. When it is properly mastered, it is as pure as the dawn of each new day, as true as the living organism of a teeming street scene catching a breath as one.

orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe
that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over. You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time. A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, run

Why Shadow sucks... (an opinion piece)Before you fangirls and fanboys get your panties all up in a bunch, I do not hate Shadow, and I'm not here to bash on him. This is me expressing my opinion on Shadow as a character over the years.Why Shadow sucks... (an opinion piece)4 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I was having a discussion with a friend about Sonic characters and story, and how they've changed over the years. We talked about Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2, which in my opinion aside from horrid dialog and some painfully flat characters, had the some of the strongest and compelling stories in the entire franchise. As much as I use to love Shadow... I think Shadow sucks. But he didn't always suck. When he was introduced, no one was really sure what to make of him. But if you think of Shadow now, what is he like? People say dark, angst, emo, or arguably bad-ass... He is the darker, edgier version of Sonic... but that's not what he WAS. In fact, in Sonic Adventure 2... he was probably THE best character in the game. Why? Because he was the most developed. He had a motive, a r
