Lyrics (for those who can't understand what I'm saying):
Time is gonna take my mind
and carry it far away where I can fly
The depth of life will dim my temptation to live for you
If I were to be alone silence would rock my tears
'cause it's all about love and I know better
How life is a waving feather
So I put my arms around you around you
And I know that I'll be leaving soon
My eyes are on you, they're on you And you see that I can't stop shaking
No, I won't step back
But I'll look down to hide from your eyes
'Cause what I feel is so sweet
And I'm scared that even my own breath
Could burst as if it were a bu

Culpeo babbles: German Stereotypes(How to make your movie villain more badass?Culpeo babbles: German Stereotypes1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Easy. Make him German. 8D)
You probably know this situation: You need to do serious stuff, work on very important things, or simply get your shit done. Then you turn on the scourge for mankind a.k.a the Internet because you're a master of procrastination and want to look up something. Just for a moment.
After reading a Wikipedia article about sharks, two hours later you end up with a site about how to build bombs. Or watching cute animal videos. Most likely both.
With me, it were neither sneezing pandas nor bombs but Disney songs on Youtube. From time to time i just feel the urge to cherish some good old childhood nostalgia again and what would be better for that than watching openings of the old tv-shows you loved or the ever popular songs from Disney, Dreamworks and friends? Disney songs in particular are perfect for that.
After a while and because i mostly see the links on the right, i continue with Disney songs sung in other languages fo

About leaving dAYou know what I'm wondering about?About leaving dA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Lately I see a lot of people leaving Scratch that, I see people "leave dA" all the time.
And then they say they are gonna move to FurAffinity/Anipan/Nabyn/ whatever the heck else there is. Because dA isn't fun, there's too much drama, they hate the people, their art doesn't get enough attention, they miss "the old dA".
- if everyone is going to move onto other sites like that, doesn't that mean that sooner or later the very same drama will come back on another site somehow? Most of the people that left or want to leave have contributed to some kind of drama at some point. Running away isn't going to help.
- dA isn't fun? Possibly, but I've seen other people come back to dA because on other sites, there isn't just that much to look at/to do. dA has way more users (thus more activity) than most sites, so you might get bored on other sites more often (which is why I'm inactive on FurAffinity).
Besides, lots of the people who are leaving are also peop
Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOSHi!Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I went to my beloved ZOO Olomouc to photograph animals yesterday - I needed a break from the thesis writing.
I spent hour or maybe more with my favourite wolf subspecies - Iberian wolves. They were very active and even aggresive, snapping their jaws and snarrling a lot. One of them tried to catch a crazy rodent. It was fun and I got many photos for you
But the bad news - fennec fox got a new light in their enclosure. It is a red light and it TOTALLY does not allow you to photograph, because the specific light ruins the texture of the animal's fur and there is no chance to get any photo I am sad about it, I loved this place for fennec photography now it has been lost... in ZOO Dvur Kralove, they put those foxes into very dark indoor exhibit, so this place is also lost and in Prague, you never see them... Hm... I am a bit sad about it, I would miss those little guys
I also definitely need a new lens. My current one had troubles to focuse yesterday and I could not take a s
Tips & tricks for better arting Decided to edit and update this for my new watchers, hopefully this will inspire you guys somewhat <3Tips & tricks for better arting3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is something I've wanted to do for a while... just a compilation of everything I've learned in the past year that I've been arting. Dunno if it'll help anyone else, but here's some organized rambling for you.
Finding Inspiration and Resources
This is a huge thing that so many artists struggle with. Inspiration comes and goes all the time and it can be so frustrating when you feel like you have all these ideas in your head, but you can't get them out. It may be because you don't think you're a good enough artist to pull your vision out of your mind and share it with everyone else. Or maybe you're just so stressed by life things that you've artblocked yourself. If you're feeling down about your artistic ability, keep in mind that everyone starts somewhere. YOU CAN'T GIVE UP! I remember a while back, I was doing some studying on Terryl Whitlatch's
Macabre OC ContestAfter some debating, I have results!Macabre OC Contest3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
First Place: $30 USD or the equivalent in dA points
Awarded because it is incredibly, incredibly creepy to look at... I actually can't look at the picture for more than a couple of seconds before I always want to navigate away.
Second Place: $20 USD or the equivalent in dA points
The design of this creature is so cool, while also being really appealing to look at! I like that he lacks legs.
Third Place: $10 USD or the equivalent in dA points
This is super eerie and interesting to look at at the same time, one of the few that lacked a definitive human form. Worm-like creatures are always very interesting.
Some special mentions, other entries I debated against these that I also adored (they will be given a $5 or 400 DA Point honorary prize):

Autumn / Fall Contest! - MORE PRIZES ADDED!Hey Plushkateers!Autumn / Fall Contest! - MORE PRIZES ADDED!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, an apology for the former contest.
My honest opinion on the idea was that it would be a good opportunity to help someone out and beneficial to the winning plushie maker. You have argued that this is not the case and I am sorry, I only want my group to be happy. So two hours ago I made a poll for the NEW Oct/Nov contest.
So, the NEW contest will be Autumn / Fall themed. Plush something that YOU feel describes Autumn / Fall. It could be an animal, it could contain certain autumnal colours, it could be a plushie dressed in a raincoat and boots, it is up to you!
Wanna enter a plush, that's already in the group gallery? Click me!
Only those that fit the theme will be accepted.
You may use previously made plushies, you don't have to make one especially for this contest, but you may NOT enter with professional/store bought plushies, or anything that other people have made.
Blue's designOkay, so I took some design ideas and stuff, and am more happy with how Blue looks now.Blue's design2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ignore the back leg mark that goes up to the ankle, I am not keeping that and forgot to erase it before uploading.
I would update the latest submission, but DA refuses to let me, so oh well.
You'll see it here I guess. XD
I am not looking for any more ideas or opinions to better the design.
From here on it'll just be what I personaly think looks and/or works best for Blue. ^^
So, note, she may still change in the next few days, and I am still not calling this her official design, but for now, this is how she is staying.
Even once I decide her official design, it is still subject to change, since once I change a design I go with it for a few weeks/months till I decide if it's all going to stay or not.

Devious Journal EntryJust a little note...Devious Journal Entry10 months ago in Personal More Like This
When you see an artist you like and you are trying to figure his work out... the question that gets asked a lot is" How did you do it?"
What software did you use to make this effect?
What is your technique?
These are questions that won't get you anywhere. It's like asking for the fish.
A question you should probably ask is WHY did you do this?.. WHAT were you thinking?
When you ask this question, you are thinking about the principles of fishing, and not just about catching A fish.
If you wonder why, then you won't be stuck with the HOW.. you will most probably create your own "HOW", your own method of putting your WHY into existence..and this is what will really make you unique.
Once again.. this is just my take on things.

Last Week's Writing Prompt
You're Not Just a WriterYou're not just a writer. You may know it or you may not, but you're also a psychologist, a sociologist, and an anthropologist. Good writing captures humanity on a page and resonates with the reader, whether you want to fill their head with sad truths until they cry them out, or play with a reader's expectations until you've tickled their brains so hard their stomachs can feel it and they burst out laughing.You're Not Just a Writer2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Studying these things is awesome whether you want to make a profound statement about humanity, or just entertain people (or both at the same time). They can up your arsenal in your idea-pool to draw from, too. What makes a comedian funny is making witty observations that ring true to life--the audience won't find a joke funny if they can't relate to the situation in it.
I'm not saying you should necessarily go to college for these fields and study them really in depth. Knowing the names for each different type of brain cell isn't really what I'm talking about.
What makes writing go
