Some considerations + FeatureHi my friends! I have some things to say..Some considerations + Feature3 years ago in Personal More Like This
*** FRIENDS ***
I want to thank you all for your support. I was overwhelmed with your comments on my first painting. I am really happy you liked and gave me suggestions to get better.
I also want to thank you for supporting my latest stuff. I would like to have one style and I think i found my own. But on the other side I don't want to be boring. That's why I tried something different. I suggest you all to try because it's an amazing experience and you can learn new fresh techniques. You all know Photoshop is a big big world!
*** FRIENDS? ***
I noticed that there are a lot people that I consider 'friends' that don't comment or fave my works anymore. I know that not all of you are on dA the whole week but since I see you posting arts I imagine you're there!
This doesn't mean I want your faves but of course I would like your support. If you don't like my things you can say and help me to get bet

But what about works as equally amazing, but with little faves?? Where is their feature??
Give them some love everyone!! They deserve it! Enjoy

Quest Of The Manwhore lyricsGaze into my chocolate eyesQuest Of The Manwhore lyrics4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let my music sterilise
Give to me your hard earned coin
I'll share with you my tortured groin
what you're feeling is not weird
you want to burrow in my beard
Gaze upon my chiselled abs
I no longer have the crabs
my rhymes will grab you by the throat
and ride you like a sturdy goat
I will drown you in my scent
with or without your consent
I am a whore of some renown
Your buttocks are my hunting ground
I am a manwhore without peer
Absorbing sex from the atmosphere
Woah woah woah woah wowoah woah
woah woah wowoah woooaaahhh
Wowowoah wowowoaah wowowowowowoooaahh
Pressure building like a cyst
I want to share with you love's fist
I'll lick your feet,I'll wear a collar
I'd do anything for a dollar
I will fit you like a glove
More precious than a father's love
Not that I would really know...*hmph*
I like my women rich and young
the kiss of yogurt on my tongue
I wield a fleshy latin sword

To enter, post your artwork here in the comments. Try and keep them as close to portrait format as opposed to square or landscape; around 20cm width x 30cm height.

VOICES AGAINST DISCRIMINATION #3 Suicide Awarenessdis·crim·i·na·tion: the practice of unfairly treating a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of peopleVOICES AGAINST DISCRIMINATION #3 Suicide Awareness8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I believe a good question would be why do we discriminate?
A simple answer is because we're taught to fear what strays out of social norms, reject the difference, and try to be as normal as possible in order to be accepted in society.
That's a lame answer isn't it? Sadly, most of it is very, very true.
However, here's one thing that we should realize, times changed, we're a new, rising generation, unlike our fathers and mothers. Difference is everywhere.
Voices against Discrimination is a blog series aiming to shed light on different part of our society. A window into things and people we usually fear, in hopes that we can make a difference.
By all means, these blogs are not meant to offend or disrespect anyone. These blogs have a single aim: to spread awareness.

My first blog entry! (also, sweetening the prize!)Hey everyone! Greenshadow622 here! I hope you all treat me kindly! (or else... -.-)My first blog entry! (also, sweetening the prize!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm just making this little update because, personally, I thought the prizes for our object-tan contest could use a little pick-me-up. So I decided (after chatting it over with fledge) that I'm gonna chip in a few bonus prizes from my own wallet!
So, like before, the top 3 drawings will have their object-tans redrawn by :iconMikeinel:
But now this is where things get better. I've decided that #1 is gonna win 1000 points, and #2 and #3 get 500 each.
Otherwise, everything remains as it was before! I hope you're all grateful for this, because points aren't cheap, and I'm broke.
So, everyone, take care, and keep sending us your object-tans! We've had some pretty impressive entries up to now, and we hope to see more in the coming month!
Autism Awareness Month!Hi peeps!Autism Awareness Month!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, welcome to April. Sorry if I got you with my Kirbian prank, it was last minute.
Anyways, what isn't a prank is Autism Awareness. Autism manifests itself in many ways in many people, and it still isn't understood as well as it should be. Sometimes living life with Autism is difficult, but I've been able to manage. I've also been trying to be a little more open about it, because it's a very important subject to me.
(If you want the tl;dr version, sorry ^^)
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disorder characterized by a lack of social empathy and repetitive behaviors, as well as sensitivity to the senses. It ranges in severity, from not noticeable to completely obvious, and it affects every individual with it differently. Some more common traits are obsessions, vocal or physical stimming (like humming or twiddling thumbs, perhaps rocking back and forth), and "being off in their own little world."
I'm an extremely mild case. Trust me.

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem
Autism Awareness Month!Hello everyone!Autism Awareness Month!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Today I wanted to bring up a rather important subject, and it's that April is Autism Awareness month!
Why is it important to me?
If you haven't figured it out yet, I have Asperger's, which is a mild form of autism.
No, this doesn't mean I'm a diseased vegetable that somehow has the ability to type coherent sentences, it just means that my brain works a little differently than what is typically seen in a human. The end result is an impairment in social interaction, along with quite a few other symptoms (such as hypersensitive senses).
Another reason why I am bring this up is because there is a group out there.
You may or may not have heard of them: Autism Speaks.
A dedicated group of volunteers, parents with children of autism, and medical experts all working toward one common goal: a cure.
Autism Speaks is a horrible, misrepresentative group of people who cause people like me more harm than good.

Excited!!I just got a samsung galaxy note 10.1. I am so happy!! I used to have one but sadly had to get rid of it for financial reasons before. Now I am totally greatful for craigslist! Excellent deals on there.Excited!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love the tablet because it gives me a way to practice digital art and editing at homenor on the go. I have different pencil and medium options right at my finger tips. I am also pretty hyped about the idea of being able to draw anywhere and not have a large amount of materials to carry around.
Mind, I still will be using pencil and paper, as I feel it is always good to practice in as many ways as possible, but this way I have options!
Can't wait to see what I can cook up on the tab!
