FIRST CONTEST 'THREE TO TANGO!'Hello My Fellow DeviantsFIRST CONTEST 'THREE TO TANGO!'4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Our first contest theme is:
THREE TO TANGO!
The theme is challenging. You have to draw an artwork using ONLY THREE COLOURS. Sounds fun right?. You can use different shades of the three colours but not distinct shades. For example, you cannot use sky blue and navy blue colours and claim them to be in one colour category.Black and white colours are not including in this category. You can use them along with the other three colours. I'm giving this leniency since it's our first contest .
The contest rules are as follows:
1. The colours can be of your own choice.
2. The number of colours should exactly be three.
3. No black and white artworks. For traditional artists, use colour pens or pencils etc.
4. The contest is for MEMBERS ONLY!
5. One deviation per member.
6. Backgrounds are not required but favourable.
7. Artwork can be digital or traditional.
8. No lineart or WIPs.
9. The work should be at least 75% yours. Do giv

Foreword by techgnotic
As usual, the number of submissions of candidate stories and poems for a special competition far exceeded the wildest expectations of the depthRADIUS editors and Clive Barker’s associates. The Master Fantasist was presented with the almost overwhelming Herculean task of choosing the narrative explication he thought best captured his “Men of the City” painting.
Clive has chosen TJBrown’s “Rush Hour” as best complement for “Men of the City.”

Shutting Down and Moving- Please ReadHello everyone!Shutting Down and Moving- Please Read2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So we hate to disappoint you all, but this group is beyond saving.
As you all well know, we shut down for a few weeks to make an attempt at reorganizing and making this function again. And as soon as we reopened, we found out we had missed one critical point- Admin assistants were only able to vote on two folders- Featured and Critique Requested- and no one except the Founder had the permissions to change that.
I am SO sick and tired of dancing around this bullshit and being blocked at every turn. Granted, I probably should have checked this before we made so many changes, as I should have known better. I've tried to go in and fix it so that my wonderful admins can vote on all folders, but once again I wonder why I even bothered trying to fix this bloody mess. I either get a DA error that it can't save the changes OR I get an error that says I don't "have permission to change these settings." Of course I don't, silly me for even trying. I sent a not-so-nice note to the

'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 4 - ShadingSo apologies first – sorry! I know this is a week late, but I have been busy – honest'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 4 - Shading2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This week's episode will cover how to fill in your drawing outline – or at least how I will 'fill-in' my drawing outline. I was a little disappointed that not many requested the reference picture – so I guess that not many are following along, not to worry I will continue to detail the steps I have taken, and perhaps it will provide a useful reference to some people in the future. Remember these are not definitive ways to draw - just the way that I draw, I am sure it is not the 'best' the 'easiest' or the most 'professional' - it is just the way I draw
So first to basics, almost every journal, art-teacher, tutorial etc. will tell you to start at the top left hand corner of a drawing (right hand if your left handed)
The idea being that you not smudge the work as you work downwards and across the paper. However I would like to mention a couple of things, firstly even though you do this, make s

Amazing people who have donated and really deserve so much love for that. More than i could give them alone
Hey everyone. i figured a couple of people, specifically the people commissioning me, would like to know what is going on with me so here is a bit of an update. It's a long one so bear with me.
The guy i was supposed to be staying with decided at the very last minute (the morning i intended to move my stuff) that his sister would be staying with her kids and therefore i had to wait a couple of weeks. (which if you read the other journal stuff you'd know i couldn't do :S )
I called another guy back who was a bit worrying because he was so obscure but he ended up settling for $140 a week, dog was okay

Custom Breaking Bad FiguresCustom Breaking Bad Figures4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last year I sculpted up a few portraits of Bryan Cranston as Walter White from my favorite show "Breaking Bad". I was finally able to put the finishing touches on 3 custom figures of Walt, all of which were given to the creators of the show this past week.
It's been a helluva lot of fun, and a tremendous thrill to get to meet the artists behind this terrific show that has been so inspiring to me. Kinder people you will not meet!
So here's a look at the finished custom figures. These were pieced together from various sources, using Hot Toys bodies, and clothes I found on ebay and then altered. The heads were all painted by some talented friends of mine, and they really brought Walt to life. It's been a lot of work to try and piece these together in my free time, but I really enjoyed doing it.
ps- A random winner was chosen from my last giveaway. I'll do another giveaway in the coming months, I'm sure. thanks!

I will give you three compelling arguments for why the answer is yes. For starters, it inspired the best pop–rock song about coming of age ever recorded: The Smashing Pumpkins’s 1979. Second, it is the year that gave us two groundbreaking developments in sci–fi filmmaking: Ridley Scott’

Famously said by many, “Ninety percent of success is showing up.” How true it is about a soul killing combination: looking at what our own first efforts in any endeavor, particularly art, result in, and then looking at the works of far more experienced artists.

Devious Journal EntryDeviantART admins deleted my work "Alien X"Devious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
They wrote that message to me:
Your deviation Alien X was reported for Explicit Pornography. The report was reviewed by a member of the Staff and action was taken, deleting the deviation and marking the report as Resolved.
Additionally, the following comment was provided:
A member of staff has reviewed this deviation and has determined that the theme itself, or one or more details present in the scene, has made the work unacceptable for submission here.
As such this deviation has been removed in accordance with our policies and should not be resubmitted.
Pornography? DeviantIgnorance should be the name of this website. That work is not pornography according with their rules. is not an erected penis, it's a FUCKING ALIEN.
AGAIN they are so fast for delete my works, no matter if are not against the rules, but you can find here a lot of works very hard with explicit sex against the rules but they don't delete. I know the reason is that time ago
