Of Getting An Art Major
A heated argument broke out in my house this afternoon.
I live in a rental situation, renting a large room (with my own bathroom and workspace, real nice setup) in a Filipino household. Love my landlord, get along great with the other housemates, but to emphasize the 'Filipino' aspect of the living situation, there's a lot of family taking residence here. And with family, with teenage offspring, with high standards and expectations from the older immigrant generation speaking upon the younger American-born kin, tension is inevitable.
The daughter of one of the housemates is loo

BBA Preview Pages ReleaseHeya!BBA Preview Pages Release5 months ago in Personal More Like This
First off I want to thank everyone profusely for posting so many supportive words regarding Anya. I fell off the horse and didn't work for a few weeks there, but I'm doing a lot better and to be honest it's due in large part to the outpouring of kindness you gave me during that time. I miss her every day.
So, what I want to talk about now is that I put up page 1 (also a title page) of the BBA preview scene!
We will be posting pages every other monday.
:iconfablepaint: and I opened a Patreon page if anyone would like to support the comic work http://www.patreon.com/blackbloodalliance
Once the preview scene is finished you might notice some downtime as we may take a few weeks to build up a buffer of pages for the main story arc. I got a little behind my desired schedule after Anya but I am still are shooting for early 2015 to post the beginning of the story. January would be ideal, but I dont want to promise until i can be absolutely sure it's doable. Im not 100% full time on

I won't draw it anymore, I guess I just ended up getting bored of it. And many other people seems to really like it so I thought I should just sell it to someone else. And I really need to raise some money for a new computer ;n; mine is really old and slow and could just break at any time.
With the character you will also have the right to use the stuff I commissioned from other peoples + gifts I received of this character!(I won't need it anymore anyway)
.:Gift Kawiko:. by MiruThunderCat
I can't really choose or decide a price...
So I will simply leave it to the best offer after a few days. if I get any decent offer.
Please, keep in mind that it's still a bit hard for me to be selling my character and I probably won't

New Username SymbolsAs part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.New Username Symbols1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

What Ruins A Painting?
(or makes it better)
We all had those kind of paintings at some point, looking at which we felt something is not right – something is not right – But could not find it. What went wrong? We have put every finest details and all our patience in it. Then?
Art has its own science. Science that makes a successful art – something that comes out exactly you thought of and leaves the same impact on your audience. That science is known as composition in art and music. Where your eyes will go at first, how you will draw attention, how much attention you will draw – these are not luck, but pure science. A well thought designed piece is always successful. So mastering the brushes are not enough, we have to learn about the basics that make a successful art!
Hence, today, we will talk about the 'bad' elements which are solemnly responsible for rui

A rescue dogA few days ago, when I was at open field work in another city 200km away from Warsaw, working as off-road/trail photographer as usually- I got a call about a husky dog in desperate need that is located in MY area. Fully starved dog (just bones), having severe skin issues, bleeding and leaking mold off from skin and fur is falling off found on streets laying down- and needs immediate health attention. I'm not anymore active volunteer in my animal rescue foundation due to life changes, but my instincts of rescuing animals came back. I've responded to the animal foundation and took responsibility of picking up and transporting a husky in need.A rescue dog8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I had to cut off from work, and ummm the issue was… I went there with my co-worker whith his car. Everything sounded perfect, that dog was in need to be transported to Warsaw by today which is good for me cause after work we are driving back to Warsaw.
Buuuut the problem was… A nice, shiny BMW car.

Long-winded health updateSo it's been just over a week since I've had this surgery, and I've had a couple people asking why I mentioned having a big incision on my chest (I mentioned it in passing in my previous update). I think I sorta forgot no one would know much about that. I purposely didn't go into full details before the surgery in favor of not worrying people. I didn't want people to be scared for me and express doom and gloom, because I needed to be optimistic myself. But since it's after the fact, I suppose it's okay to be a bit more open.Long-winded health update2 days ago in Personal More Like This
What you probably do know is that after having had testicular cancer taken out last October, this was a precautionary surgery where they would take the other testicle out (this one didn't have cancer, but due to the kind I had in October, it was at high risk of getting it). This time around, they also removed all of the lymph nodes around my kidneys (although I misheard and thought they said around the heart at first, so it's pr
Diccionario argento (Argentilupis) IIHooola (?Diccionario argento (Argentilupis) II2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Segunda parte ^^ :NoMeDigas:
Primero que nada, quiero aclarar el "che", porque todo el mundo lo usa mal. Casi siempre lo ponen al final y noo, NO VA AL FINAL. Es como un "Hey", es un intento de llamar la atención de a quien le estás hablando. A lo sumo, si lo ponen al final, es como una queja, como un "Ufaa, che! Yo quería dulce de leche T-T" Eso. Escríbanlo bien, mierdass!
Otra aclaración: En Chile se dice "mina" y "mino", en Argentina no existe "mino". Es más, me suena rarísimo. Se puede decir chabon, pibe, flaco y etcétera. Una variación de "mina" es "minón", osea, cuando la mina está muuuy buena.
-Paja: Fiaca o masturbarse. Cuando se usa la segunda definición, en general se dice en frases como "hacerme una paja" o "me hice una paja". En los chabones es muy común la frase "me clavé una" refiriéndose a "hacerse una paja".
-Garchar: Tener relaciones sexuales o coito. En resumen, forma vulgar de decir "hacer el amor"
-Coger: Lo mismo que lo anterior pero más usado.
About My FeonixesTo clarify now, these are my little critters (some of these examples are owned by other people)About My Feonixes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the past I've sold 'adoptables' of these guys. I created designs and color patterns ect and sold them. I've also done custom Feonixes where people have some freedom on what they want their design to look like.
I am going to be doing what I'm doing so if there are people out there that want one of my critters, they can. But please be respectful of a few guidelines. Feonixes are not 'sparkledogs' or have some chunk of hair on their heads and I'd like it to stay this way.
What does this mean? Feonixes are an open species. This means you can create one, put it in your story, draw it once and never draw it again, ectect. The only thing I ask you to do after you create one is to credit me in some fashion.
Please do not make adoptables, variat

ClarificationBecause people keep asking about the lack of Jim x Dolphy art and my obsession with „Rise of the Guardians“ I guess I have to clarify something ( although I'm pretty fed up with having to justify myself ).Clarification2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I still adore “Treasure Planet” and Jim, but after being a fan for almost 12 years and hundreds of pictures my inspiration has gone on vacation.
In 2012 I suffered from a really bad depression. I felt alone and miserable and wanted to force myself to finally grow up and stop obsessing over animated movies and buying merchandise like a maniac. I knew that’s what made me happy but for some reason thought I had to change because I was getting older and had to act more according to my age. I cried a lot and well, felt like crap. And then I went to the cinema with a friend to watch RotG. And immediately noticed this movie was doing me good. I had the urge to watch it again and again and every time I did it made me happy. I started drawing fanart and reading f
