I'm a horrible dad D:So I let my wife daughter play Sims on my laptop sometimes and thought that it was an ok game for a two year old to play.I'm a horrible dad D:2 months ago in Personal More Like This
This has been going on for a few months.
Today, I couldn't find the TV and satellite remotes. I looked all over the place and finally found them under a blanket on the couch.
what happened next left me in utter horror.
My daughter started laughing when I lifted up the blanket and found the remotes beside each other. Then she said "they were woo hooing!"
Im a horrible parent!
I don't know whether to ban her from the game or what...
Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!Manip Academy6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.

In case you haven't already seen the first journal with a few answers, just click on this http://motionbooktool.deviantart.com/journal/Some-answers-to-some-recent-questions-363387248 to check them out!
To augment our first round of answers, here are a few more answers to recent questions:
Q1) Will users have to have coding knowledge/experience?
A1) Not at all! The tool is actually really simple for anyone to use with a great user interface (that we are refining as I write these words to make even better)!
Q2) Will the user be able to drop in sound assets, music, and sound effects into the motion books?
A2) Yes, it is very easy to implement .mp3 files with any sound you like and trigger them where you want in the story! You can also adjust volume intensity in the MBT, looping, and fade in / fade out of either a loop or a single play through of your sound.
Q3) If I were to go ahead and start drawing my comic, are there any technical aspects to my appr
PLEASE STOP ACTA! :'(This is really important guys, and I'll need all you help to even give us a fighting chance. Yes. SOPA and PIPA are gone. But ACTA isn't. To put it short, its worse than both the others. We'll be surveillanced by the governmnet for any shared material, like music or videos with copyrighted music and stuff. If you have been found to be sharing/shared with the content, you are then dubbed as a criminal and can not only be arrested and given an LIFE SENTENCE, but you can also be sued by the company of the shared material should they feel hungry for money enough, and can be arrested if any exsisting copyrighted crap is found in your data from ages ago, and can be shut off from the internet perminantly. Youtube, twitter, facebook will all crumble and will no longer exist. I need you guys to spread this around like wildfire. The EU will be trying to sign the contract ASAP, so we need to get this done. Contact the leader of your political party or something and tell everyone what will happen.PLEASE STOP ACTA! :'(3 years ago in Personal More Like This

To everyone who says picking on Microsoft for their consumer unfriendly bullshit was "being unnecessarily mean," take a look at this. Don Mattrick just announced that Microsoft is back peddling with the XBOne, removing the disastrously awful features we've been bashing them for trying to inflict on us.
Last week at E3, the excitement, creativity and future of our industry was on display for a global audience.
For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come. As is our heritage with Xbox, we designed a system that could take full advantage of advances in technology in order to deliver a breakthrough in game play and entertainment. We imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing, and new ways to try and buy

We're not over keen
We'll dice them like a knife
Slicing right through
Our dragon shout flow
Is sweeter than a soda stream
You won't believe your eyes
We're like an overload
A broadsword in one hand
And a magic spell in the other
We are the last of the Dragonborns
There's no other, my brothers and sisters
So run for cover
If you've got scales
Then we're on your tail
And I will not fail
Like a free-roaming
We're off the rails
We'll walk the trail
Through awful gales
And storms of hail
'Til all the nails
Are knocked into your coffin
We're not stopping
'Til you're impaled
And We've prevailed
In the name of our ancestors
We pray to the Lords
You all get a taste
Of the blade of our weapons

Je Suis CharlieIn case you haven’t heard, this is what happened yesterday. Terrorists entered and open fired on cartoonists at the Charlie Hebdo studio in France, killing 4 cartoonists, 2 cops, and overall 12 people in the process before getting away. This appears to have been an attack over controversial comics Charlie Hebdo published in 2012 depicting Mohammad.

Where is the hand on the harpstring ...Dear Oakenlovers,Where is the hand on the harpstring ...1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Please excuse Your Humble Owl for adding a spoon of wood tar into the barrel of honey dripping throughout the Internet on how wonderful the last “Hobbit” movie was. For me, it was a disaster. Harsh as this statement may seem, my heart was broken and defiled. You know I’m not some dumb Middle-Earth hater. I loved “The Lord of the Rings” and I can honestly say I really enjoyed the first two “Hobbit” movies. The Oakentoons were one of the outcomes of my very profound attachment to what I’ve read and seen so far. Sure, I did have a lot of fun mocking the plot and the characters, but I’ve never set the bar of humor low enough for anyone to feel hurt or affronted (I hope). But last night, after seeing “The Battle of the Five Armies” - the movie I had very high expectations for, especially after seeing the trailer - all my hopes turned into a worst kind of nightmare – a cruel joke made out of everything

February Speed-paint Landscape Challenge!February Speed-paint Landscape Challenge!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: CHALLENGE STARTS TODAY!
Post finished works in the comments and it will be posted in this journal
With the success of the December challenge and being able to see the progress of the artists who contributed, it was definitely an incredible experience. So again I will be going to be doing another challenge, this time with the help of other artists. This months theme is Landscapes!
This is an area i am weak in and i would love to do this challenge with others who are looking to improve this part of their craft as well.
The way it works is there will be a photo designated for every other day. There is a two hour time limit with each piece, and my advice would be to use all of this time wisely. There will be two critiquing sessions one around the 15th, and the other at the end of the month so using all the time allotted would be to your benefit.
Only rule: NO TRACING!!!! We will tear you a new one in the critique so DONT DO IT!! We

We also announced that Madefire's professional-grade Motion Book Tool would be brought to deviantART—giving deviants the opportunity to turn imagination into a visual, auditory, and literary masterpiece, and showcase their art alongside some of the industry’s greatest creators.
After months of development and testing, we are excited to announce that the gradual release of the Motion Book Tool has begun, and you're (very likely) among the first to gain access. Having access to the Tool means you can create dynamic Motion Books just like the pros, and publish them directly from your deviantART account!

Illustrated prose motion booksOne thing we're very keen to promote and be clear about is the fact that the Motion Book Tool can be used for more than comics, and upcoming are some examples of illustrated prose - kicking of with Metawhal Alpha, illustrated by the fantastic Dave Lupton. There's such a wonderful community of writers here, and as many iterations of the writing form as your imagination will endorse. Words and pictures - reading - is what we are most passionate about. The words matter as much as the art, and we want people to be engaged and active within that experience.Illustrated prose motion books2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've said it before, but I think we are going to be astonished by what creators produce, and amazed by the innovation we see by dA users.
