McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!Today is an incredibly exciting day!!!McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I feel incredibly lucky that on my birthday, I can finally reveal a long-awaited dream come true with all of you.
McCall's Patterns reached out to me last year to see if I would like to design some patterns for them. (Still reeling over this sentence, btw.) I had a meeting and lovely tour of their offices, and then got to work. My ideas were overflowing, but I knew exactly which patterns I wanted to design first...
We're proud to present "Yaya Han's Ultimate Bodysuit Pattern" as the first finished collaboration between McCall's Patterns and me.
It's a pattern we are sorely missing in the cosplay world - I know from having to alter and draft my own bodysuit patterns for many years. This patterns will make it easy for cosplayers (and everyone else) to tailor a bodysuit that will fit them like a glove, and use it as a base for thousands of costume ide
Bitching About April Fools on DeviantartLets get a little perspective, peopleBitching About April Fools on Deviantart4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I Know that it is common knowledge that the art-world generally regards deviantart as a beckon of professionalism and respectability. To see something like this while browsing for serious prospective employees on another busy work sunday on a serious talent search site that is totally serious business guys is totally going to get you banned from the art world and loose you all the jobz you would have gotten that day! This is an outrageous prank! This is not what DA is about!
Come on guys, perspective.
If your gallery is so important to your life and career that you can not stand to have even one of your precious thumbnails momentarily obscured lest every employer decide that cats are no longer the "in" thing this year and black list you from the industry, you probably shouldn't be on DA. Yes, some people get a lot of traffic from DA, but lets be honest, this is not an appropriate site in which to host any kind of serious portfolio. Fine,
The best link on the internetI should strongly warn you to beware of clicking on the link that I have included further down in this post. Do not, my friends and watchers, click on it while you are at work. Do not watch it in a public place with the volume turned to 11. (Or do, if you are so bold and infect those around you.) The link will direct you to the best web page on the entire internet. Every page that you visit hereafter will be only a wispy shadow of the greatness that you may have thought it was prior to viewing the page beyond this link. So, choose wisely before you click. Do you want your browsing, nay! your life, to carry on as it has. Or do you want to GO *THERE*. You will never come back from THERE if you do.The best link on the internet3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Poe's Death List:icontechgnotic:Poe's Death List4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Foreword by techgnotic
Fri Oct 21, 2011, 8:23 PM
As Halloween approaches, what better way to celebrate the season when the spectral
boundaries of the Kingdom of the Spirits of the Dead touch briefly with the mystical
edges of the Domain of We the Living than to invoke the battered and hellishly bedeviled
soul of Edgar Allan Poe to guide us in communication between (his) ghostly and (our)
ghastly planes of existence.
Poe invented the “detective” story and was an early father of “sci-fi”, and he was also an
extraordinary poet, but he is best known for his Gothic tales of mystery and abject horror –
nearly all of them anchored in the apprehension of an impending cruel and unnatural death.

Purging this account was more exhilarating than I expected. Mainly because it reminds me of how badly I played and broke the game known as deviantART. Really though.
Let's look at the interesting fact that I've been on the front page more times than I can count on my hands and toes and I've received 3 daily deviations as well as seniority. All for the price of being a major dick who picks just the opportune moments to pretend to have a heart [which I don't, by the way. Not for a crowd of posers looking to reap the benefits of being a follower].
Admittedly, you're all not like that--in fact a good many of you are great people trying to improve yourselves as artists. But then there are those morons who do nothing but follow. Followers who enjoy sitting there and vacantly hoping someone notices you. They won't. Unless you're amazing beyond comprehension--but most of you aren't. Sorry, it's true.

How Malware Works Via Banner Ads
As many deviants know, deviantART has been working hard to combat malicious banner ads that infiltrate
our advertising network, and we've previously addressed this issue in

In our ongoing effort to keep the deviantART community safe, we wanted to share the following
video that explains how malicious ads inundate the Web.

Patreon and being an artistHello dear dA-friends,Patreon and being an artist7 months ago in Personal More Like This
some of my friends asked me if I wanted to do a patreon campaign to get my supporters the chance to support my art. I must say, I am not sure at all about that. Sure, it would be nice, to be able to be as creative as I would like to be, book models or locations that I would love to work with or invest more in hardware. But here comes the but: I am not sure how I feel about the whole patreon concept. The idea just feels strange.
What do you think? Would you support an artist that you like? Or how would you as artist feel like if you had people supporting you financially?
I've always that I wouldn't want photography to be my job because I wouldn't want to change my art to make money and I still think that way. That is why I have another "dayjob" while photography remains my passion. But I must admit that the idea of being able to spend more money on the creation of my art is very tempting ...
So these were my thoughts... what are your's?
Have a nice evening

Somehow, this silly page has hit 9 million views!
Just to be absolutely clear, I do not think the views make me any better than anyone else. I mean, I'm sure some of those are from people who don't even like me. But I guess my point is that it's crazy to imagine that this page has been opened up that many times, and I can't help wondering where all these hits have come from. And I just feel so grateful that a select few people in those millions have come to be irreplaceable friends to me.
It's been a wild ride with all of you guys through all this time. To me this isn't just a page where I simply showcase my artwork or the cosplay photos my friends and I come up with. This site has opened up so many opportunities for me, and has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people I've met in my life.
It's been a journey, and my interactions with the people here have taught me more than I can express.

This set has seventy cards(read: Cloud will be sold separately) in the deck that includes Smash Bros characters that have been playable at some point in time, plus a couple boss characters, ... and Viridi because of her inclusion in Palutena's Guidance scenes haha.
I decided on making a physical copy of this deck with tarot-sized cards. I'm only making about one-hundred of these decks, and then moving onto my follow-up project, the Minor Arcana which will be a fifty-six card deck.
The card dimension are, 70mm x 121mm or 2.75" x 4.75". They will be printed in 300 dpi on 300gsm premium card stock, in a custom tuck box which you can see in my gallery and probably a little booklet.

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming4 years ago in Personal More Like This

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility.
