Because 'pretty' is cheapI don't like my 'pretty voice'Because 'pretty' is cheap1 month ago in Personal More Like This
It's too quiet
I don't like my 'pretty face'
It doesn't stand out
I don't like my 'polite persona'
No one wants to listen to it
I don't like being a 'good girl'
Because good girls are ignored
And what is the point of being good?
When you don't do anything good?

Sito and I refuse to make this a cheap first attempt at cosplay, and that's why we decided to go all out and buy a super authentic costume.
Obviously this comes at a price, and that is why we need your help.
We have set up a donation pool to help fund this project, our goal is to reach 390$ in the next few months!
Once we reach our goal, we will definitely return the favor with a candid shot taken of me in the outfit!!
Here's how it will work:
2$ gets you a 4x6
5$ get you a 5x7
10+$ get you a 8x10
15+$ gets you a SIGNED 8x10

porn can be...art 0_0Hola gente!!porn can be...art 0_02 years ago in Personal More Like This
Siempre he pensado firmemente que el porno no podia, bajo ninguna circunstancia, ser arte, que era algo estimulante y casi necesario para una vida sexual divertida y sana, pero que era totalmente independiente del arte.
Como siempre tengo que aclarar que un desnudo artistico no es porno, porque ello implica penetracion y fluidos entre otras muchas cosas.
Siempre he estado totalmente convencida de que el porno no era arte hasta hoy. Mi novio me ha enseñado fotos de una actriz porno preciosa e impresionante llamada Stoya, una mujer de cara angelical, piel super blanca y con pechos pequeños, lo cual me ha gustado mucho, y buscando en wikipedia vi que ademas mantuvo una relacion con el genial marilyn manson, que le gusta la lectura y la ciencia ficcion, el arte y que queria ser bailarina. Ella no se parecia en nada a ninguna de las muchas actrices porno que habia visto anteriormente, siempre super operadas y en muchos casos deformes y horribles, ella era una mujer na

#SixWordStories: Monthly ShowcaseA type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.#SixWordStories: Monthly Showcase1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
In our feature articles, we will be showcasing six word stories submitted to Freestyle folder.

WHICH WACOM TABLET SHOULD I BUY?Not to sound snarky, but I thought that little article I wrote about Wacom Tablets would've alleviated some of the confusion new digital artists were having, and answer their burning questions. Unfortunately it has seemed to only caused more questions!
Many of you have asked me which model Wacom you should get versus another. An intuos medium vs large, an intuos vs a cintiq, a cintiq vs a tablet PC, etc. To answer this as truthfully as I can --- I can't honestly tell you which one is better. This is

So many of you have been sending me messages asking me why I haven't been as active on Deviant Art.
So here is a big update:
For those who don't follow me on
Since January I've been working as a product ambassador (promotional modelling) for Nissan at all the Auto Shows around Canada (No I'm not in a bikini in front of the GT-R, I'm actually quite knowledgeable about each and every vehicle from Nissan). January I was in my hometown Montreal and in Februar I was in Toronto. But March was just insane with Quebec City, Calgary, Ottawa and Vancouver all in the same month. One show left to do and that is Edmonton from the 18th to the 21st of April. So if you are from the area come pass by and say Hi!

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 Becoming2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Digital drawing. Digital painting. Same thing?Hello, dA!Digital drawing. Digital painting. Same thing?1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
As you may be aware, we are in the process of revisiting gallery descriptions and making sure that all of our submissions categories make sense and are useful to you. We also want to make sure that categories are mutually exclusive so that people don't submit their deviations to the wrong galleries/categories by mistake.
This process brought out a very interesting conversation among some members of the CV team. Specifically, we started talking about what, fundamentally, the difference between digital drawing and digital painting was. Does it depend on brush strokes? Is there some technique used on one but not the other? What sets the two apart?
. . . OR, are they essentially the same thing?
Here's what the submission guidelines currently say about digital drawing and digital painting:
Digital Drawing: Digital art drawings created using computer-aided drawing tools or digital techniques.
Digital Painting: Digita
Resizing Pixel Art : Smaller?I've had a few question on this (resizing pixel art to be smaller) on my most recent deviation and I've replied in kind to each person who has asked so far, but I thought I'd post my answer here as well for more to see.Resizing Pixel Art : Smaller?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Is it possible to shrink pixel images?
Shrinking pixels is ...well it's not really feasible x_x. It can be done, but not done very well.
When you're making pixels bigger what you're doing is essentially multiplying every pixel in to a group of 4 pixels to make a 'larger pixel' or square
So lets say the image you're resizing is just of a pixelled line that is 2px tall and 5px long. After resizing it to 200% it will be 4 px tall and 10 pixels wide. The dimensions are larger b/c each pixel the line was composed of has been duplicated to create 'squares' that are twice as big as the original individual pixels.
So you can create the illusion of 'larger' pixels, but they're really just more regular sized pixels grouped together to look like bigger ones.
When you try to shrink

We're looking for game players to come and join in our deviantART Birthday Event! In just a short while 3wyl and myself are hosting an interpretation of a British game show called Pointless. The idea of the game is that you have to guess the least popular answer to a multiple answers question. You will be awarded points accordingly, those with the most points will win - but you will have used pointless answers to get there!
We'll have pre-judged the least popular and most popular answers by asking a panel of CVs beforehand for their responses. Want an example?
Name a Film Starring Tom Cruise
Okay so Mission Impossible is a really high answer and if you said that one, you'd get lots of points. Which isn't good! If you said Rain Man - you'd possibly be getting less points. But if you said something like Endless Love or Taps, then you'd be hitting on an answer tha

PE: How to Animate in GimpHow to Animate in GimpPE: How to Animate in Gimp1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Gimp is a free photo editing software that you can download at gimp.org. You can use it for a lot of different things like photo manipulations, drawing, pixel art, etc. Today though, we will be covering the topic of animation!
Note that this tutorial will only show the basics of Gimp animation. How to make the frames, how to save it and the such. So let's get started!
Start by making the subject. I just used a random black ball, but the subject can be as simple or as complex as you want, depending on what you're making. Make sure you switch over to the layers tab.
Tip: If you do not already have the layers tab there by default, go to any of the tabs and press that little arrow that the green arrow is pointing at. After you click tab press: Add tab> Layers. After that, the layer tab like in the picture should show up.
After making t
