The Nuzlocke Court Horror Contest!Welcome to :iconThe-Nuzlocke-Court:'s First Contest!The Nuzlocke Court Horror Contest!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Nuzlocke Court proudly presents the first of many contests! Read on, for it'll be worth your time.
Draw or write a scene in which characters from all of our nuzlockes are combined in a setting of either Halloween or Horror in general.
Yes, you have to include all four nuzlockes. You may choose any characters, but all nuzlockes should get about equal representation.
Any medium is fine. Drawn, painted or written; comics or single art pages, poetry or prose; whatever tickles your fancy!
Crack entries and serious entries will be judged separately. Yet both things are perfectly acceptable!
For serious entries, creativity and being accurate to each nuzlocke's canon will be valued very highly!
You may create collaborations if you agree that you can split the prizes should you win.
WATCHER APPRECIATION MONTH, FREE ART FOR YOUEDIT: A PERSONA. IT IS NOT A CHARACTER. IT'S HOW YOU DRAW YOURSELF. SO A DRAWING OF YOURSELF IS BASICALLY WHAT I WANT. It doesn't have to look exactly like you, heck, it could look nothing like you at all (it usually does tho). but it's how you draw yourself. okay? do you understand now?WATCHER APPRECIATION MONTH, FREE ART FOR YOU9 months ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: you have a while to draw/link a pic of your persona/a drawing of yourself. I'm very busy with marching band and :icon16th-sequester-OCT: and I have no idea when I'm going to start this, hopefully before august is over but I make no promises.
it's almost august, so It's time for my annual Watcher Appreciation Project. or WAP, as I like to call it.
Basically, just comment with a pic of your Persona (aka, what represents you in your drawings) and I'll draw it. I'll compile them all into a huge picture.
there's going to be some sort of theme too, but only I know what that is ;3

Comic faces and expressions tutorial!Hello guys!Comic faces and expressions tutorial!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The expressions tutorial I did for Wysp Learning Engine is finally on run!
It contains of 20 separate panels, each of them are meant to show a process of how to draw faces and expressions; so if you are interested, you can try it out here
The learning engine allows you to try practicing on a digital canvas right there on the site, which is really helpful because you're able to see your progress instantly; and hopefully you will find the tutorial I did worth seeing!
There also are some other tutorials; such as male and female anatomy and dragons tutorials; so Wysp is definitely worth checking out, especially for young learning artists
Sorry I am not very active lately, but have a nice day, by the way
Coming OutIt's true, I am Chinese and I was born this way.Coming Out3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At a young age I began to notice this difference. I was attracted to neither boys nor girls. In middle school, I liked math, and in college, I did my homework all night long.
Being Chinese is not a choice, it is genetic. There are risks to being Chinese because society cannot accept the union between a human and a textbook. I have Chinese friends who didn't need sex because they could foreplay instruments and get screwed by O Chem instead. Now, they don't have a social life and are shunned by others.
But fear not, life will get better. I grew up as a Chinese and I am proud of it (just look at my tumblr user name Maid-en-China ). There is the LGBTC (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Chinese) community to help you be comfortable with your Chinese orientation.
1,338,299,512 people came out as Chinese. You are not alone.
April fools!!! ... Oh wait...

In 2014, DeviantArt turned 14 years old. Fourteen years is a long time, some of you reading this may be younger than that. I've gathered some historical information with the help of Moonbeam13 and some members of the Community Relations team to help enlighten those of you who have joined in recent years and missed out on a chunk of DeviantArt's life.
I hope you enjoy taking a step back in time!
Please note: it is extremely difficult to track down some events in DeviantArt's history (in particular, the first few years) and that some dates are only approximate.

The first day was a shock to everyone. They were in an unfamiliar place surrounded by unfamiliar faces, only to be addressed by their host and left there to survive. The host informed them of the rules but he didn't give any explanation for why they had been brought to a deserted Island in the middle of nowhere. A lot of questions went unanswered.
It wasn't long till everyone settled down into a more calm state. Some people began to build friendships, others went off on their own. The first three

So apparently, there is (or was; I don't know how far back these pictures go) an artist that spent an absolute crapton of her life drawing basically nothing but Akatsukishipping and posted them all to her Photobucket account. She's Japanese, so obviously I can't make heads or vaginas out of what is being said in these drawings. And for that, I regret discontinuing my education of the language back in middle school when I didn't give a crap about anything except the color of what I thought was lesbianism. wut
Another name for Cyrus/Dawn besides Akatsukishipping is 2710, which is Cyrus's age (27) and Dawn's (10) mishmashed together. Fun fact: Dawn's birthday is 27th of October. Ergo, 27/10. Boom. So that brings me to the lingering con

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

“Sometimes we lay aside our own troubles when we wipe away another's tears.”
Is no longer alone
his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

"No!" Mario yelled as he ran as fast as he could toward the falling cage. Reach them, reach them!! He hoped for a miracle, anything to save them.
Anything to save his family.
And there was.
A split second before the cage hit the lava, it suddenly stopped. It hung there, slowly swinging around. Peach and May Belle looked at each other in disbelief. "Um, what just happened?" May Belle said.
All eyes turned to Bowser Jr., who was holding the edge of the rope. He was panting and sweating, but his smile was easy to see.
"What the French toast?!" Ludwig yelled. "Are you crazy?!"
"Traitor!" shouted Morton.
Bowser Jr. stuck his tongue out at them. "She's my friend," he said simply.
May Belle cheered. "Yay, Bowser Jr.!" she said happily. :iconcheerplz:

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Artist Eye - Boring EyeI suppose it's common for most artists, but since a few years I've come to a point where I can't appreciate art and animation like I used to, and even comic books and movies to a certain extent.Artist Eye - Boring Eye1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My theory to why that is that I have studied and practiced and analyzed art for so long that it comes to a point where I see or try to identify how an image is made. No more can I simply appreciate what it evokes. It's just lines and colors and shapes now. It is way harder to appreciate the beauty or realism an artwork or an animation manages to create and looks cheaper through my eyes than it should. It's not that I can't find images interesting or pretty, but the impact of what it evokes is very subdued.
Sure, some rare moments my eyes and mind stop focusing on the details and can absorb the whole image for what it is and I am happy for a few fleeting seconds. Sometimes I wish I didn't choose the artist's path because of this reduction on how images evokes things for m
