Everything you know is wrong.
That's the title of an old Firesign Theater album, and I think of it often as I watch my kids progress through high school. Maybe it should read, "Many of the things you are taught have been dumbed down because teachers didn't think you could handle them." Whether it's glossing over quantum physics when teaching the nature of the atom, or stating that Socrates killed himself, because getting into the whole trial thing is too complicated, examples abound.
Anyway...most people, when asked to name the primary colors, would respond "red, yellow, and blue", and, when asked to define what a primary color is, would respond with something like, "they are the colors which can be used to make all other colors". That's what many of us were taught in school at a young age, but it's only partially true. People involved in printing know that the truest pri

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

Hello - so good to be back!First of all thank you to all of my friends who have been so supportive during my exile! I've really appreciated all the kind words.Hello - so good to be back!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am back and I hope that now I can gauge my time better and keep in touch. I just uploaded 4 new carvings.
My time away from you has been productive. I have about 25 houses completed! I set a goal of 100 by the end of May! Since the size of each carving can vary greatly, 100 will be a real test of my creativity and stamina.
Checking back on DA, I've found a lot of you haven't been on site much. Hope you are all creating and enjoying the winter. Do let me know how you are.
Another questionFirst thanks to all who have commented on my never ending questions regarding the DA home page and downloads. Now my next question, how do I add a picture to my journal or anywhere else on my profile page? I tried a cut and paste of the link but the picture wasn't thereAnother question3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My previous journal entry was full of typos - not having a great day! Really appreciate all of you!

Every country on earth has wee folk in Slavic lands they are know as Leshes in Russia as Zubotchniks, in Ireland they are the Sidhe (pronounced as Shee) but no matter what their name this distinct race inhabits the world of Middle Earth. Folklore for centuries has recorded their encounters with humans. It is believed that they are fallen angels who were not good enough to be saved, nor bad enough to be lost! Their glamour a form of the Gaelic word for fairy power is great. They are able to move quickly, change shape, be a breeze that rises on a calm day, a scent of flowers where no flowers grow.
Each element of our earth is directly under the influence of a band of wee folk. The Lesidhe (pronounced Lay-Shee), govern the forests. They are most active at dawn and dusk. Though no Lesidhe has ever harmed a mortal, their pranks are nasty and usually involving trying to lose people in the deep woods! They like to mimic mockingbirds to c

Salut!!! Alors alors? Comment que ça va? X3
J'ai créé mon premier concours!!! OUAIIIIS!!!
Bon, passons aux règles...
♦ Le thème de ce concours est "Zelda, la princesse perverse" XD . Bon, je sais c'est un un thème tordue (comme moi, d'ailleurs!!!). Le but est de dessiner une Zelda perverse (logique), mais le dessin doit être très marrant, très très drôle XD . Ce qu'il faut dessiner? Bah j'sais pas, Zelda qui fouille dans les caleçons de Link, Zelda qui mate Link en soubrette, Zelda qui habille Link en fille et qui saigne du nez... et bien d'autres... A VOUS DE TROUVER DES IDÉES!!!
♦ Le dessin qui gagnera ne sera pas forcément celui avec les effets les plus beau, mais celui qui a l'idée la plus amusante!!! Mais ça ne veut pas dire pour autant qu'il faut bâcler la colorisation.
Reunite a FamilyI don't need to tell you how important families are. Whether you are the parent or the child, the worst thing that can happen is to be separated from each other. Now imagine yourself alone in the country, living with the constant fear that you may never see your loved ones again.

"At 19, being a U.S citizen--born and raised--I currently work an hourly job and share a home with three other people. At this time I'm on medical leave due to mental issues garnered from my parents' deportation. I have been recently diagnosed with PTSD and OCD--I have nightmares that one day I will wake up to the news that my parents are dead in war-torn Mexico. My mind is filled with the thoughts of what could have been, and it hurts so much. While that may not sound so severe to you, to my parents: it does."

'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,
After all his favorite art

Before anything, just allow me to tell just how much I have adored and cherished the love, kindness, support and friendship I have gained from all of you who cared to view what I'd drawn.
Doing these silly (And usually illogical/disturbing) comic-strips and images has literally been one of the highlights in my life, as cheesy and cliché as that may sound, I swear, it's absolutely true. Ever since way back when I started with my couple of watchers right up to this moment with over 19'000 watchers, breaking the 1'000'000 pageview milestone and having amassed over 10'000'000 hits, logging into this account and seeing many, many supportive remarks and friendly comments, watching the favourites rise steadfastly on each deviation, seeing others willing to try improve their own, or return, to drawing (Despite the fact that I still do not wish to be titled as a

'Cloud rhapsody' by anndr
Since I believe the efforts of semi-realism artists are not sufficiently appreciated, because there are so many fantastic illustrations in this style that does not have the right visibility on here, I decided to create an article to advertise these artists that are, for me, the 'new faces' of this fashionable and yet so difficult art style.
First of all, Semi-realism is a drawing style derived from mangas but more complex in terms of style. Indeed, if we want to be more precise, it is the missing link between mangas and digital art. No giant eyes but neither skin blemishes.
I would really appreciate if dA could add a category for this particular art style but I can easily admit the boundaries to define this style are very labile.
Well, after this brief introduction, I'm featuring some samples of this style from real
Frequently Asked QuestionsCOPYRIGHT NOTICEFrequently Asked Questions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We figured we'd go ahead and make this journal to help cover any previous asked (or potentially asked in the future) questions to better help people out with using/understanding our account. This may be updated periodically to include more questions/information.
What is this account, exactly?
This account offers free-to-use (obviously abiding by our terms) stock. People can use it as references for their artwork or in photomanipulation. It's just us contributing to the stock providers on Deviantart.
You keep saying "we/our/us", why?
There are actually two of us running this account. One is the main model which you see in the gallery and the other is the photographer (which you may see parts of in the gallery, haha).
Who am I talking to then?
99.999% of the time you will be talking to the photographer. If the model replies to comments, I usually
Ben WolstenholmeTwice I have seen this, in maybe 30 years - somebody improving at such speed it belies belief.Ben Wolstenholme2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first time was Chris Weston, a year my junior. I landed a job as assistant to the late and very great Don Lawrence when I was 17, just edging out Chris. A year later Chris replaced me, and a year after that he was working for 2000ad. Today he's one of the finest comic strip artists in the business, as well as the best storyboard artist I have ever seen.
The second time was Ben Wolstenholme.
Don't get me wrong, Ben already had chops. He is an incredibly talented guy - and way too good looking for my liking too. He formed Moving Brands (a progressive, distinguished and award-winning branding agency) right out of college. He and I were both art scholars at the same school - he seven years my junior and following in my footsteps. He used to come round for drawing tips, and I'd draw him a Batman, or Judge Dredd, then get rid of him with a ruffle of the hair and head off down the pub.

It seems I'm lost. I can't seem to find the Forest in the trees. With such a bright light extinguished, it seems that the world is a much more dull place to be. The pointless call to "Please come back" echoes in the chasm that cannot summon back such a beautiful soul from the expansion that they were destined to become. DeviantArt won't be the same without you, and it seems that the world has been overcome with an overwhelming emptiness for those of us who had the privilege of basking in your radiance while you were here.
The beautiful, unique, inspiring creations reflect their creator, and will live on eternally as a constant reminder for generations to come of the spark that burned so brightly, and left such an impact on so many.

Hi everyone. This is my journal made especially for others. This is where I will advertise for other deviants or people in need of help. This entry will be updated with new things added, and it will be added newest first, the oldest ones are further down. When it gets really cluttered, I will eventually have to clean it up. I see people needing help or wanting to help others every day. And because others have helped me in the past when I was going through some difficult times, I really want to pay it forward and help people who need it. I don't have a lot of money, so the best way I can help is by getting the word out to others. Please, if you have a moment, just read this journal and see i
