Development and Experience: ConformityThis got looooong... but being something important to me, I feel you guys should take some time and read it, I wrote it out for you.Development and Experience: Conformity4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So go ahead, help me entertain the delusion that I'm significant.
So this is an issue I understand many of you struggle with, and that is discouragement. It comes from many sources, a lot of them external, but the strongest source comes from within.
As young artists the worst thing I can advise you to do would be to lock yourself into a mode of working. I've expressed this in an earlier journal about 'Sugi-Style' and how defining yourself by a style not only limits how others see you, but how you see yourself. There is SOOOO much out there, yes even beyond Anime, and I find it disturbing to see how young many of you are and how much pressure your place upon yourselves to mimic the style of someone else. As a one whose experimented with many 'styles' I can say it's an incredible practice if you want to be diverse.

Crafting CONTEST: And the winners are..... 21-05Sorry it took a while guys but this was possibly the hardest choice i've had to make as a judge EVER! (and kinda wrote an announcement before but DA ate it -_-')Crafting CONTEST: And the winners are..... 21-052 years ago in Personal More Like This
Making a selection, and then narrowing the top 5 entries down to three really pulled at my heartstrings and my co-judge and friend wolfie1998 felt exactly the same about it. Each participant sent in an amazing entry that a lot of time and effort has been put into so in order to even make a selection we had to be very strict and look at every little detail. (I hate being a nitpicking critique lol). We judged each person on the followin qualities:
Does it fit the theme Animals/creatures
The winning crafts have to be related to the theme somehow. Sound logical enough, right?
If there's anything I love about being creative , it's the endless possibilities and different styles that one can create. Not one entry will look the same. I've given the contestants of this contes

Perceptions of HomosexualityGay and Lesbian rights is a an issue that galvanizes people, particularly on the internet, and as I writer of male/male fiction or a Yaoi fangirl, as you may prefer, I would like to weigh in with my views on the matter.Perceptions of Homosexuality3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Naturally I do completely support Gay rights and all this entails. For example I believe that adoption and marriage are just as valid options for Gay and Lesbian couples and should be permitted and protected by law. I also feel that individuals of any marginal sexual orientation or gender identity should be free from prejudice, harassment, or unequal treatment at work or in public. So on and so forth.
I think that this is the most common stance for liberal-minded individuals and is probably the one expected of me, given my interests. My interests in male/male works however are not what guarantees or suggests my support for Gay rights.
I think most Yaoi fans do support gay rights but, although their tastes may influence this opinion, this is mainly because they are thems

I wish i could post the kinds of art ive been doing - but most of it is at work - and Im not allowed to show any of it until the project is released.
I've really let my DA account fall by the wayside over the last couple years, and I apologize for that. I also appreciate everyone who still has me on their watch list. For those who comment, I read all your comments, and really do appreciate them.
Im finishing up Pokemon X on the 3Ds. I just ordered Animal Crossing New leaf.

IS ANYONE ELSE ANNOYED BY YOUTUBE MAKING YOU CREATE A GOOGLE+ ACCOUNT TO SEE AND ACCESS COMMENTS ON YOUR VIDEOS?
It just seems pointless and absolutely annoying. I went to go check my inbox to see 'this area of YouTube was disabled and you'll only get notifications through Google+'
The hell is this crap? I don't like the layout, it’s bogged down by so much crap, not to mention even if you uncheck things it STILL sends you a buttload of bullshit crap about 'new features' and 'things you may like'... Like it fucking KNOWS me or some shit.
They’re basically FORCING people to make some stupid Google+ account so they can have their emails bogged down by countless ads, features, and all other bullshit.

I thought I should stop by to let you all know that I am still alive and kicking.
I have been a busy Slinkers working my tail off trying to save monies for the HOUSE I am buying in May this year. Yes that's right. Slinkers is getting a HOUSE.
Not even like a shack house...its a real one! Like with 4 walls (MADE OF BRICKS) and a whole roof. Holy shiznits I hear you all say....is this really the cucumber addict we used to know?
Against all the odds, all of the rebounds, all of the falling-off-the-cucumer-wagons....I have spent quite some time in cucumber rehabs and I got my life on track. I have signed a legal agreement to say that I will not use any rooms as a cucumber farm.
Over the past few months in my spare time I have mostly watching series 3 of Sherlock, which was excellent...but not as good as series 2 in my opinion...maybe you would disagree on that?

art thief listour art is like our children to us, and we won't let strangers use or touch it in any way!art thief list2 years ago in Personal More Like This
i will update the list as we go and will make a list of terminated accounts to keep the track of things!
how to recognize an art thief: the gallery they have differs from styles and genres a lot. they should also not be on Da too long (though this may not be the case) they can have many hidden messages on their profile. track down a drawing you suspect to be stolen trough this: http://www.tineye.com/
it should let you see previous urls and links to the original image. it's not 100% accurate but works often enough to give it a try.
FOR EVERYONE THAT SEES THEMSELVES ON THIS LIST: http://colourize-stock.deviantart.com/journal/The-whole-thing-about-Copyright-367734634
please grow some brain and stop art theft. artists can sue you, shove a lawyer up your ass and cause you a shitton f trouble! stop stealing shit and make your own!

Q: What do I have to draw for the contest?
A: Draw one of your characters with one of my characters. They can be interacting somehow; whether it's being violent, funny, awkward, sexual or friendly towards each other, do whatever you want! BUT you must try to keep my OC and your OC in character. For example, some of my characters may be friendly, some may not. Read and look at my characters to figure them out. For example: Lets say you wanted to draw a violent picture; characters like Abeline and Aidin would not be violent towards your character, they would be a very bad choice for a violent dr
