Smaller dA thumbnail scriptWant to get rid of the absolutely horrendous recent dA update of ugly, massive, unorganized, unprofessional thumbnails that I turned off beta to escape from but IT SOMEHOW STILL FOUND ME???Smaller dA thumbnail script2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Just install this amazing new browser script written by rotane, which not only shrinks the thumbnails back to a reasonable size, but also gets rid of the awkward light-background problem for wide deviations.
THANKS rotane!!!! Please +fave and spread it around if you like it!

Goodbye, CV ^hat!Hi everyone! I'm back to being a `senior member. Today my term as the mod of the Digital Art galleries has officially ended. It's been a great year serving as a dA Community Volunteer and I have been able to feature so many wonderful pieces as Daily Deviations. Thank you every one of you who sent me fantastic suggestions!Goodbye, CV ^hat!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Speaking of DD suggestions... the end of my term obviously signals that I am no longer accepting any. My unread inbox note count right now is 1,789, the majority of which are DD suggestions, far more than I could ever hope to feature even in 2 years... I simply got too many!! I apologize if I did not get to consider your suggestion while I was still a CV, but please let it be known that I will be doing my best in the next few weeks to reclaim my inbox, and I will forward any suggestions that I think are particularly remarkable to the new Digital Art CVs. (As of this post, MalKnox is still on, so send suggestions to her!)
Thank you again everyone.

Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)Well I keep finding myself explaining various plot points or origins every time I post a new selkie picture and corresponding vague blurb, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a central place where you can read up on the story, if you like. The idea is that I'll update the story here when I upload a new illustration, and fill in major plot points which aren't getting covered in the picture, so check back if you're interested.Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
BEFORE I START, I will answer once and for all this question: "Is this from Ondine/Secret of Roan Inish?" Not really, this story is as similar to either of those as they are to each other: they are all from the same mythology, but this series is about characters who do not exist in another selkie retelling. Here is some reading on basic selkie mythology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selkie

“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”

What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

My Kingdom for a HorseDespite Shakespeare's vitriolic literary license, even he could not quite find where the king was buried. but an archeological team in Britain today identified the skeletal remains of Richard III - who simply had scoliosis, a curvature of the spine which made him look hunchbacked. For many centuries some people were trying to find his grave and now at last it has been. the skeleton is really slashed about - consistent with the reports of numerous wounds Richard III had gotten in the battle of Bosworth, minus the feet. there are plans to rebury him as he ought to have been buried over five hundred years agoMy Kingdom for a Horse2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Few of us have been unaffected by the economic mess, and many are preparing for worse to come in 2013. In the US half the politicians are on holiday while the other half play chicken right on the edge of a fiscal cliff. Meanwhile, the UK's Prime Minister moronically grinned through a speech about how much better it's all getting. To which the rest of the UK collectively face-palmed.
I could go on, but I'm not actually trying to depress you all with the frustratingly stupid politicians, greedy bankers and crazy wars... believe it or not.

The Different Categories of Art TheftIn a particular art-theft report fiasco that my friend had to experience, I decided to clarify what it means to be an art thief. This is a hot topic it seems. Everyone's on a red alert for art thieves these days:The Different Categories of Art Theft4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
At thieves come in different forms and motivations.
An art thief is someone who posts another artist's work and gives PROBABLE CAUSE for others to potentially ASSUME that they were the -original creator- of the artwork.
There are four types of thieves that fall into this definition. Let's call them Type A ("Photobucket/Google Image") thieves, Type B ("Altering") thieves, Type C ("Trace/Copy") thieves, and the most malicious kind, Type D ("Identity Theft") thieves.
A Type A Thief (aka. "Photobucket" Thief):

The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.
