:iconthesmallwonder:A reflection by thesmallwonder
While warm summer is probably my favorite season, I have a soft spot for fall. It's a colorful season full of reds, oranges, and other fiery colors. It means cuddling with blankets, wearing cute scarves, and sipping warm cups of tea.
But mostly I love fall because it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood fairy tales called, "The Leaf in the Shape of a Key" by Joan Aiken. It's about boy who rides his bike beneath trees in fall, catching all shapes and colors of leaves. The last leaf is in the shape of a key, and it opens a door in the base of a tree.
I rode my bike under a lot of trees as a kid hoping to recreate the magic, but unfortunately, it's a little less whimsical when you live in a neighborhood of pine trees.
Still, fall is a time of nostalgia for me and the photograph

Now the only hurdle is being able to reach all the people that have seen Animator vs. Animation. I counted that my whole series has over 218 million views, but my social network is comparatively very small. So please share this link with your friends!
We have until August 11th at midnight! If I don't reach the goal then I won't get any funding, and Animator vs. Animation IV will NOT HAPPEN.

If you feel offended by this, this isn't anything against any sexualities, just against people who switch orientations like underwear. To get rid off misconceptions, please read the whole journal or stop reading right here.
I've seen people stereotyping deviantART members for being not straight and guess what?
They are right. Nowadays it's hard to find ANYONE on deviantART who is straight anymore.
Well, actually still many of them are, but they just pretend to be someone completely else and it makes me sick by now.
I mean when there is like every second girl I see on dA is either lesbian or bisexual!? what?!
You guys this makes no sense. I understand when some people are unsure about their sexuality and all.
And I also know that some of them actually ARE bi, gay or lesbian. or pan or transexual or whatever else is there.
I am 100% sure that not all of them are.

Last thing about thisApparently my last journal needs some clarification, since a few things were misunderstood. This is the last journal I'm writing about this.Last thing about this6 months ago in Personal More Like This
There have been enough hate already. This whole thing grew out of hand really quickly.
Plenty of people are suffering from this and this needs to stop.
I don't want to talk about Ferguson situation in itself, again, this wasn't the point since the beginning.
But I just find it ridiculous to call strangers and people you don't know "disgusting/racist/etc. and asking them to un-watch because there is a possibility that they may have a different opinion/way of thinking, when some have no idea of what is going on (Maybe because they lives in a different country?).
The sarcastic part was to mock people who come on an art site to tell everyone who don't agree with them (or don't even have an opinion yet, because they may not even have heard of it?) that they should un-watch them. People should be allowed to watch others if they just want to enjoy the ar

The Screenshot This Meme.The Truth Behind The Infinity MemeThe Screenshot This Meme.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Before i start the tall-tale of the screenshot meme, i'd like to thank
ReaveT93 and Mochine-Nyan for getting me interested at 8:30 at night to do this search. and for the links you guys got, you went really far!
Now to get down to business. with the links provided from the two above, i just started pushing the images that where similar, but then i hit the first dead-end.
At this point, no one is drawing on the meme, it's just a screen shot, which i found strange, since i thought it was a drawing meme.
So, to get over the road block of deactivation, i read the user name of the person before the one that deactivated and searched the name in DA.
I did this several times until two people deactivated and i couldn't make out the words of the the last last person who did it.
In situations like this, Google is your best friend~
I started to Google the usernames and, walla! Most of their images are there, and i could make out more names.

Male NudesMale Nudes4 years ago in Personal More Like This
There is always so much conversation about female nudes, as if men don't much factor into the conversation. In my work I photograph mainly men, but women are anything but forgotten. I work with women who are more about their wholeness than their holeness. If a woman comes to me with her butt pushed out backwards and wearing a hand bra I refer her to my heterosexual friends. If a woman comes to me with grace and overwhelming sensuality then I take pictures of her. As you can well imagine, the field is sometimes limited depending on where I'm living. Take a look at my collections - you'll see what I mean.
At the same time I have no problem finding some of the world's most beautiful men to photograph. I'm lucky. And my being gay has everything and nothing to do with it all at the same time. I don't have sex with my models. What I do have with my models, both male and female is an intimacy that comes from a deep deep trust. I sometimes joke that when peopl
How to become a photographer.A photographer need attention, patience and curiosity. We call this set the maximum state of alertness, willingness to act but with inner peace. It is a physical and mental concentration, alertness, vigilance, the ability to instantly move to action.How to become a photographer.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The problem is that the photographer has to work with the ultra-small segments of time, most often in the area of 1/200 second, and even 1/8000. It's amazing that our brains can work and respond in such time frames.
So a good shot is almost always a chain of "saw-pressed the trigger," but "analyzed the dynamics, pulled the trigger."
With experience, you can analyze not only simple motion path but such complex processes as facial expressions
This state is a core skill of any photographer, and not related to his outside shooting temperament. Nervous and noisy photographer, in the moments when it is necessary will be in the same state: calm, focus and passion. And a lazy and apathetic person can be successful not onl

I just have a "public service announcement" type thing regarding my art - and everyone's art, for that matter. No matter who it is, where they're from, or how popular they are. The message is this: IF YOU REPOST SOMEONE'S ART ANYWHERE, CREDIT IT AND DON'T EDIT IT.
I've had a LOT of people reposting my art with no credit at all, editing my pictures for icons/profile pictures/simply removing the signature, and impersonating me and claiming my characters as theirs. My main problem seems to be with Facebook, but this is not okay anywhere at any time.
I understand that a lot of people put time and work into collecting and putting together image collections. I understand that they do this because they really like the art. It can be flattering when people want to share your art with others because they like it and think it is worth being seen by others. It is not flattering, however, when people post the a

I found this on Tumblr today and just have to comment about it. NOOOO holy crap could that be any more depressing holy shit throw that mentality out before it spreads!
Listen to this instead! - I know a LOT of people, including myself are intimated to accomplish something remotely artistic if it involves something rather challenging, especially if that challenging thing is going to end up in a comic. A lot of us know how challenging it is to draw perspective and buildings and things like this, while others just seem to have a gift for understanding these things and can master them pretty easily. No one will get to know you better than your own self as you learn and grow from watching yourself accomplish each page. You must keep going.
So with that said, the only way a person can truly accomplish something is to get past the fear and doubt and self loathing. These things have to be pushed aside. The lazi
