I've been working on this for a week and a half straight so I've completely lost the ability to see anything wrong with it anymore. I think it's awesome, but I welcome ideas for improvement and such. Note that I completely ran out of creative juice and didn't make a nice title. I still need to do come up with something snazzy to put at the top
I'm accepting ideas or even designs if you want to contribute.
After I've heard any suggestions and figured out what to do for a title, I'm going to post it to my gallery and provide it as a poster for people to buy and put up on their wall at home, work, or where ever else someone gives them crap for watching. T

Okie dokie, as for its origin: it's a term that's used to describe a type of streetpass team from a game called Fire Emblem: Awakening, and most of the characters on this team have a skill called "Lethality" (it's a one hit KO move) blah blah

There’s something about the brilliant colors of the dying leaves of autumn that reflects the wonders and the sorrows of life. It’s as if by waking up each morning into this beautiful world of natural colors, we are being given our bittersweet reward for surviving another year on the planet. We are regaled with a brief seasonal ceremony of the turning of the leaves, nature’s gift for our eyes as a promise she will soon return after her yearly rest. And then it’s time to let winter’s grey pallor unfold over us in blankets of dark cold rain and bright brisk snows; we sleep, the autumn’s leaves having promised

F**k-ugly watermarks.I follow a lot of insanely talented artists here on DA, people whose work I look at in sheer awe and whose skill I can only dream of one day matching.F**k-ugly watermarks.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.
I want to tell you a story...About an attempt by Google to compete with a social sharing website. With it, users could share videos, status messages, conversations, etc. It was called "Google Buzz" It was launched February 9th and discontinued December 15th, 2011. Less than two years later and almost no one knows that it ever existed. If they did they'd probably me even more pissed about this Google+ shit than they are already.I want to tell you a story...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's biggest criticism was it's lack of consideration for user privacy, and that's pretty odd because Google Buzz didn't ask users for their real name to completely attempt to destroy anonymity. Google Buzz publicly disclosed a list of names of contacts that the user had most frequently emailed or chatted with. It obviously resulted in a wave of negative publicity. How does Google decide to fix this problem? "Let's not fix the privacy concerns. Let's just force our users into this."
A lot of people tend to be defending Google+. As far as I know, none of them are content creators. Maybe I ca
About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)Well, here's the scoop-About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Get used to it, because she's here to stay. And not just in the show.
We're introducing the updated version of season three's Twilight Sparkle into the comics as well.
We're asked about 5th person at our tables: "what do you think?" "Why did they do that?" "Are you gonna.." etc.
Since we work hand in hand with Hasbro, we never had any intention of NOT updating Twilight for the books as well.
And quite frankly... we are all about it!
Neither Katie Cook nor myself understand the hatred going on for having Twilight become a princess. Katie has made an outstanding point- Twilight may be the only popular character to have EARNED her crown... she worked for it, suffered for it, and it was awarded. She didn't marry into it, wasn't born into it (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, etc etc). That gives little girls a character that WORKED FOR WHAT SHE EARNED. One helluva example I think. And for Katie, with a little girl and another on the way... that's a great t

deviantART has given me the opportunity to perform two Community Volunteer positions here:
I am the Science Fiction and Space Art Community Volunteer.
I am also now the new 3 Dimensional Art Community Volunteer.
One of the duties of these positions is that I can feature artwork from these categories as Daily Deviations.
I browse through these categories daily in search of deviations to feature as Daily Deviations.
This feature is to help the artist and their work gain more exposure, and it's genre and/or medium gains more community awareness as well.
But I need your help.
Have you seen a work of art here on deviantART which you have found so impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large?
Do you know an artist of whom deserves much more exposure?
Would you like to put a smile on someones face and make their
My Progression as an Animator at DisneyA friend of mine is writing a book on animation fundamentals and asked me for a "paragraph or two" (which I can't do) on the subject of timing. I considered it and ended up writing about my progression of learning while a Disney animator in the traditional animation days. It was good therapy for me to really think this through and consider the order of things. I hope you enjoy it. "Like" or "fav" this so others will see it too.

My Progression As A Disney Animator
by Tom Bancroft
Walt Disney is quoted as saying that it takes 10 years to make a great animator.
When I was first coming out of California Institute of the Arts and joining a Disney internship in 1988, hearing that quote was devastating. 10 years? That's FOREVER! I wanted to be a full-fledged Disney animator in TWO years! I rationalized that that was a way of thinking from the 40s and today, we move at a quicker pace, so-

Is it better to possess a thing of beauty, or to experience the ultimate consummation of oneness with that beautiful thing by actually consuming it... and being left only with the memory of its beauty? Leave it up to our deviantARTists to think of a way to have it both ways – but left over as a feast for the eyes, preserved eternally on the digital planes of deviantART.

Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!

Quit getting mad at Rule 34Ok, so I`ve seen a lot of people getting mad at certain porn artists and writing comments like "Fuk u i didnt wanted 2 see this u ruined this show for me" even though the artists did put the Mature Content filter (and usually even censor it). WHY. THE FUCK. DO YOU CLICK IT THEN? It`s not the artist`s fault you saw it. It`s your own fault. Warnings are there for a reason you know. Why do you still click it since you don`t want to see it? God, I swear some people have no brain.Quit getting mad at Rule 343 years ago in Personal More Like This
I understand that it`s annoying to some people when they see Rule 34 stuff in their messages all the time, but can`t you just ignore them? No one is forcing you to look if you don`t like.
Even if you see it by accident, you shouldn`t get mad and insult the artist just because you don`t like what they draw. I mean, I do enjoy r34 when it comes to certain things, but there are also other things that I just can`t stand. Like once I`ve seen a MordeTwi r34. It was awful. Do you think I enjoy seeing a bird fucking a pon

Dear Mitt Romney,I'm so very sorry you oppose adoption of children by gay couples. I'm sorry you think that 'It's not right on paper. It's not right in fact.'Dear Mitt Romney,3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, let me give you a couple of facts, Mr. Romney:
In the United States alone, approximately two million children are raised by LGBT parents, and as of 2009, over 20,000 same-sex couples are raising 30,000 adopted children.
Multiple studies in the medical, social, and psychological welfare communities have proven that children raised by LGBT parents are just as likely to be well adjusted as those raised by heterosexual parents. Meaning any worries that a poor little girl won't be able to tell one of her fathers about her menstruation, or that a boy won't be able to confide or bond with one of his mothers normally are pointless. Children confide in parents they trust, and when raised by LGBT parents, they will have the same trust with them as they would with heterosexual parents.
And if I am correct, Mr. Romney, you are against abortion. You pro

Mickey Mouse/Spider Mouse
One day while visiting von Drake's House of Science in Tomorrowland, Mickey Mouse was bitten by a radioactive spider that gave him incredible speed, strength, and flexibility along with a early warning system called "spider sense". And after learning the hard way about power and responsibility, Mickey dons a pair of web shooters and a costume and becomes the Spider Mouse. But even Mickey can't handle seventy-four super villains on his own. That's when he created the Avengers, with some help from Goofy and Wade.
After seeing his work in Imagineering, a group of rejected Hydraist trolls from the Wasteland kidnap Goofy and nearly kill him. They allow Yibson, a Gremlin, to replace his heart

and then this...
If you have the guts I didn't, to watch the whole video,
then even if you stopped halfway, you'll see the eyes of a raccoon dog, skinned alive, stare into the camera, while clinging to its hopeless life.
For clarification, I am not in anyway a supporter nor am I affiliated with PETA.
So if PETA is another concern and problem, then it's just another one we'll have to fix.
And yes, this specific one is staged, but my point isn't that this is how people skin animals, it's that these animals are dying REGARDLESS of the cause and reason behind it.
