Literature Preview Images - What Can I Use?Hello, everyone!Literature Preview Images - What Can I Use?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Using a preview image for literature is something that can be a good creative addition to your piece.
However, there are some rules that go along with it.
What sort of things can I use for Preview images?
Preview images which were created using your own resources and your own efforts are most appropriate for use; you should not simply 'take' images which belong to other creative people without first getting their permission. Otherwise all preview images must abide by the deviantART terms of service as well as all other relevant policies.
Simply saving a random picture you found online without obtaining the artist or photographer's exact permission is against the rules of dA. More so than that, it is also unfair to the person who originally created the piece. Simply saying "I got this image from here" and providing a link.
If you didn't ask the person and they did not say yes, then please do not use the image. This could can put deviants in trouble as wel

Please pass this onShopping at the grocers recently, the young cashier suggested I should bring my own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment. I apologised and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days." The cashier responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations." She was right about one thing -- our generation didn't have the green thing in "Our" day. So what did we have back then ? After some reflection and soul-searching on "Our" day here's what I remembered we did have.... Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the shop. The shop sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilised and refilled, so it could use the same bottles repeatedly. So they really were recycled. But we didn't have the green thing back in our day. We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the shop andPlease pass this on4 years ago in Personal More Like This

VOICES AGAINST DISCRIMINATION #3 Suicide Awarenessdis·crim·i·na·tion: the practice of unfairly treating a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of peopleVOICES AGAINST DISCRIMINATION #3 Suicide Awareness1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I believe a good question would be why do we discriminate?
A simple answer is because we're taught to fear what strays out of social norms, reject the difference, and try to be as normal as possible in order to be accepted in society.
That's a lame answer isn't it? Sadly, most of it is very, very true.
However, here's one thing that we should realize, times changed, we're a new, rising generation, unlike our fathers and mothers. Difference is everywhere.
Voices against Discrimination is a blog series aiming to shed light on different part of our society. A window into things and people we usually fear, in hopes that we can make a difference.
By all means, these blogs are not meant to offend or disrespect anyone. These blogs have a single aim: to spread awareness.

Back when they introduced sta.sh, I didn't really use it. Because it seemed hard to get used to. I always wrote my articles in the old way.
Then I toyed with it a little and noticed that is is something really awesome!
Not to mention that the only way to make articles and journals is through Sta.sh Writer.
So I assume not so many if you know that there is a way to make thumbs big!
That is actually pretty easy. All you have to do is add big in front of a thumb code!

Depression: Symptoms, Types, Tests and TreatmentI've always liked doing research about stuff, and since I have depression I'm going to use this to research it through and through. The brain is also something that has always fascinated me. So this will make things even more interesting. ^^Depression: Symptoms, Types, Tests and Treatment3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Depression Symptoms, Types, Tests and Treatment
First of all, you need to know that there are different degrees of depression: mild, moderate and severe. To have proper treatment, you need to know and be able to distinguish these three different depressions, as they will NOT be treated the same way.
Many people have told me "change your thoughts and you change your world" or "think positively and throw all your negative thoughts away." or "if you have a positive outlook on life everything will get better on its own."
While it is true that you SHOULD have a positive outlook on life, that is unfortunately not a treatment or a cure for depression as depression is m
Popular results for Browse Something for EveryonePopular results for Browse4 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The deviantART community is incredibly deep and diverse. Every day, amazing art is produced that appeals to all tastes. Our goal in sharing and exposing the deviations in deviantART's Popular section is to showcase this depth and diversity as convincingly and fairly as we can.
DeviantART's algorithm for Popular browse results is known as Fair Exposure. The goal is to maximize the display of the most popular deviations in a variety of topics (styles/genres/art forms). Fair Exposure increases the probability that someone will see something that they personally like in Popular results. In short, with Fair Exposure, the community is exposed to a varied cross-section of deviantART. It uses an algorithm that is "fair" in nature -- meaning not biased toward any topic, yet still based on popularity.

Embracing the DamselI came across this little bit of interesting-ness in my internet wanderings today. Frances McDormand talks (and, interestingly, mmphs) a bit about being a feminist and being bound and gagged in 'Darkman'. What she has to say may surprise you.Embracing the Damsel3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
I've had problems recently embracing the damsel. Lots of personal circumstances make this so, but at the end of the day I think it's also due to a fundamental creative problem with writing a story just to get its female characters tied up. Which, at the end of the day, is what DiD is really all about. As I get older I find I'm looking a lot less for kicks and a lot more for substance. In short, I think this fetish which has been a constant throughout my life is on the wane. It's still here - indeed, I don't think it'll ever be gone - but I think it has become ingrained in the everyday routine.
If, like most seem to agree, your love for DiD began early in childhood - as mine did - you'l

.:KOF 20th Anniversary:. -Epic Collab-.:KOF 20th Anniversary:. -Epic Collab-1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Do you remember The King of Fighters? That game where we all spend hours and hours entertained while making matches on the arcade or consoles, throwing incredible combos, special attacks, choosing our 3-character team, etc. (even so, it could have been at the same fame that Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, also those classic games are still played around here).
Well, now the game's future its becoming obscure due to the downing that SNK Playmore had nowadays (although being sincere I liked The King of Fighters XIII "Last game on the lineup at the moment") and I don't believe that there is gonna be a 20th anniversary special of this gorgeous franchise (because lets take in account that since 2010 they haven't made any anniversary specials with their other star games like Metal Slug, Fatal Fury, Samurai Showdown) so I thought of making a great tribute to this saga and what better way to do it than in a collab?

My deviantART StoryHello Friends and Family on DA, this is a special journal on Devianart's 14th birthday and to tell you a bit of story of my side of how i came to be RedFalcon23.My deviantART Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Well it all started long long time ago, in a computer far far away (yeah, that computer is far since is now busted and sold), i was just a geeky guy doing reviews on videogames and anime, till i decided to join deviantart, but not as RedFalcon23, but as another user which right now i will not reveal that one for a future reference (wink wink). So in that account is just used to just watch other people's art and just save the pics on my hard drive folders and never fave or comment, why? Don't know really, maybe because i was shy in giving my opinion.
After awhile i was on a difficult, stressful and sad year with some troubles, so for getting those out besides videogames i decided to write stories, from action stories, sci-fi stories and the thing you know me most about, Damsel in Distress stories. At the time i only write few s

Octane vs Reality** Octane vs Reality **Octane vs Reality3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Gone are the days when my only option in Poser was to render with Firefly. Nowadays we have high-end 3rd party renderers available that offer a new level of realism that was never possible before. In this article I will discuss Octane and LuxRender.
Same Poser scene rendered in Firefly, Octane and Reality/Lux with a single HDRI image
First of all, let's see the pricing:
* Octane: $380 includes stand-alone renderer + integrated Poser plugin.
* Lux: free renderer + $60 Poser "Reality 3" plugin.
Now let's see the specs:
- 100% GPU render (extremely fast).
- Requires high-end video card with at least 1Gb memory.
- Renders inside of Poser itself.
- Preview your changes as you do them in Poser.
- 100% CPU render (slow), with option to include GPU raytracing (still slow).
- Does not require high-end video card, but high-end CPU may help compensat

Urinal Entry #4 - Allegorical Repletion"I suppose my main concern is that you have, like 100 000 000 pictures of cheerleaders being shot."Urinal Entry #4 - Allegorical Repletion4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Actually, the current stat is 220 deviations. Not all of them are cheerleaders, either. And not all of them are shot. But, I quibble and digress.
Here's my excuse: "Allegorical repletion". Type it with quotes into Google and read what Camille Paglia has to say about it in relation to Michelangelo and Da Vinci, Rossetti, et.al.
I suppose nobody else here has done any multiple variations on the same theme or used the same damn characters over and over and over.
Hope this isn't "tl;dr" for you.
A small Tale, about a kitten rescueSomething I wanted to share with you here.A small Tale, about a kitten rescue2 months ago in Personal More Like This
A couple of weeks back, I was invited to a dinner over at my folk's home out in the country.
I was gonna head out in the kicthen for a moment to get something, when I looked outside the window for just one second.
I saw something moving. A fox? No, the tail was to small. I realized then it was a small cat.
Curious as I was, I went outside, and started hearing the most heart chilling screams of panic, Ive ever heard from a cat.
I started answering the call, and went its direction in the cold darkness. I walked a bit, answering the call, and just when I turned around to look, I see it.
A small kitten, no more then 7 weeks old, running towards me in full panic, all alone in the forest at night.
I kneel down, pick him up, and he climbs into my arms, litterly clinging for his life. We take him inside, give him food, milk, warmth, the works. With my family used to cats, we had the situation under control.
I decided to spend the night at my folks hom
