This girl made a huge fucking mistake. SO what? Humans make mistakes and sometimes they can be huge.
HUMANS MAKE MISTAKES
This poor girl had her whole life ruined because of jerks and assholes who couldn't move on of the fact. She made a mistake, so fucking what? Move on, idiots.
You never recieved the shit end of the deal, have you, bullies?
Try to see the world as if you were the one being bullied, harrassed, stalked.
This world is terrible now. We got the swagfags, and yolo idiots. The trolls, the 'kill yourselves" kids, creatures of death.
We can't just live in a world where people are humane to each other.
Why can't when someone is down, why can't someone just help them up?
Why must you laugh at the ones who are down?
The ones who struggle
The ones who starve
The ones who suffer
The ones who aren't as smart as someone else

Un-ghosted Lucien Lachance in Skyrim ScreenshotsA while back I encountered the bug where the Spectral Assassin is missing the ghost effect when you summon him. I thought I'd take some screenshots so that everyone can have a better look at what Lucien looks like in Skyrim.Un-ghosted Lucien Lachance in Skyrim Screenshots3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I didn't spend too much time trying to capture cool poses or get great shots. But maybe later when I'm feeling more creative I can take some nicer screenshots. Anyway, click on them to get the full size.
Just for fun, I tried removing Lucien's hood using the console.

Dath and Natalie
Two free spirited, adventurous thieves, who just trust each other that much to know: neither of them will stab one another in the back for the pickings.
*Dath: A silent, but determined man with bad manners. Looks like he's calm and level-headed, no one thinks how easily he gets angry.
*Natalie: Good-temepred, optimistic woman -she smiles and laughs a lot. She loves chatting and speaks much in monologs -fraying Dath's nerves. Her acting is great, enjoys manipulating others.

On Photographing Robots in PublicSo apparently, the question on people's minds is: "When you take pictures of Transformers in public, how do people react??"On Photographing Robots in Public2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I cannot believe how many times I've been asked this question recently. I didn't realize this was such a hot topic, seriously. At first I tried answering people individually, but that got to be a bit of typing, so I thought I'd just put this journal together. So, by popular request, I give you people's reactions to me taking pictures of robots in public, whee!
1. People ignore me. Seriously, this is what happens about 95% of the time. People just act like I don't exist.
2. People look at me sideways. Honestly? I think most of these people are just curious about what I'm doing, but are too shy to ask.
3. People look freaked out, or even upset. This happens less often, but it does happen. I think people are just afraid of what they don't understand, and it ruffles their feathers that some weird girl is snapping pix of robots in the middle of

~~The Royalty Contest~~
It's fast-approaching Christmas, which is a time that a lot of people enjoy. In the spirit of things, we wanted to run a Christmas contest, but, by scanning over DeviantArt and other groups, we saw that, naturally, a lot of other groups had the same idea. We don't much fancy running a contest that's almost identical to other contests on DA – a simple Christmas-themed pony contest is something that you can take part in elsewhere. We also realised that, if we did do yet another Christmas pony contest, we'd likely see a lot of people submitting a single contest entry to several similarly-themed contests. It would be the natural thing to do, and so we wouldn't necessarily blame anyone if t
PE Daily Deviations - So you want to suggest DDs?You're browsing deviantART or are simply checking your message centre and find a wonderful art piece. You want to suggest it as a Daily Deviation because you believe it truly deserves to be seen by the community as a whole. But how to properly suggest a DD? This article will explain the process.PE Daily Deviations - So you want to suggest DDs?2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Things to check before sending a suggestion:
The first thing you need to check is if the artist has been given a Daily Deviation in the past 6 months. Volunteers cannot feature anyone who's had a DD in that period of time with no exceptions, as this has been hard-coded into deviantART's system.
"But how do I check an artist's Daily Deviations?" you may ask. Simply go to their gallery, click browse and scroll down. If they have any DDs, you'll be able to find a link to them at the bottom of the page. Alternatively, you can add "/dds" after their profile url and click enter on your browser's address bar.

I'd just like to mention publicly, that I, as well as artists in general, are not art vending machines.
You don't type suggestions in, and then have a slot where artwork comes out for free .
Important to Note: I am not addressing any individual in particular. If you think this is about *you* specifically ( whoever you are)- don't. This about the private notes I get, with alarming volume, where people feel they can simply request artwork from me for free. I get a *lot* of these. Which prompted me to post something about it. I usually just ignore them, or, if I feel particularly polite that day, I send them a note back saying I don't do requests.
But they never stop o_O. And it's not that I mind suggestions in comments under artwork, such as: "Oh, I hope one day you will paint _________." or, "

I'm pretty sure this is going to be a rant (not that I have ever posted those before ) but bear with me because I just... I got to say something about this subject.
"You have a lot of talent and you waste it on drawing stupid dogs!"
"Don't you understand that series is for CHILDREN? You're too old!"
"If you want people to take your work seriously, stop drawing stupid animals!"
"All you draw is cats. Can't you draw anything else? I'm so done with your unoriginal bullshit art."
"Wolves, wolves, wolves. All you ever draw is wolves! BORING!"
"Are we ever going to see anything but shitty cartoon dogs from you?"
I'm sure all of us at some point in our artistic lives have dealt with someone who decided it was a good idea to rag on your choice of artwork subject matter. If not yet, you will... trust me. We ALL go through it.
It's hard enough to deal with it from strangers but it's another thing when it comes from people you know. Family, friends,

I always love original characters, original stories, admire other artist's creativity and originality, and I always wanted to create some fanart about their stories. As I don't have too much time, near the university, and my other things, and the 2012 is here, I had an idea, that I will do a project. Project, that I can show, how many artists and original stories, characters are here, in DeviantArt. As my english is bad, sorry, but I will try to show and write why am I love them and their works, and maybe you will discover them too
I will upload sketch fanart about artists' original characters day by day in 2012 (If my personal life, or my computer/intertnet not encumber this x"D)
