Nature Feature : Soft TonesHello everyone !Nature Feature : Soft Tones1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have been on Deviant Art for a few years now, yet I virtually never used the journal... But I come across so many beautiful pictures on DA that I thought it was high time to make my first feature ! I plan to make some on a regular basis, with a special theme each time.
This one is about nature pictures with pastel tones which, in my opinion, reveal nature's softness. Some of these photographs even make me think of impressionistic paintings, maybe you'll feel the same... Feel free to visit the artists' galleries to see more of their amazing works!
I hope you'll enjoy it.

Full sized hats?!:iconohnoesplz:Full sized hats?!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well Tiny Toppers ( I've been dying to say that XD) I have an exciting announcement!!
We've begun to make FULL SIZED Top Hats! :iconsobeautifulplz:
I'm so excited to announce this because I know it's been suggested to us a lot and we've thought about it a lot as well and we just decided to go for it! We've already made a full sized Classic Mad Hatter and I will probably post pictures of it tomorrow ^__^
I'm excited to see what everyone thinks, and if everyone has a favorite hat they'd like to see turned full size!! ^___^ Which hats do you think would go over best in full top hat form? :iconawwwplz:
I can't wait to hear everyone's thoughts
Anyways, That's all for now! We will be attending a few cons in the upcoming weeks, but I'll write another journal about that ^_^ I just couldn't wait to tell everyone
I hope you're all staying fancy, keeping your pinkies up, and waxing your mustaches

What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)Okay, due to some flaming I've received because I brought art plagiarism to the attention of an art plagiarist... I've realized that there is more than a good number of people who don't know what art plagiarism really is--so, I've written an informative journal for you all. It's broken down into several easy to understand sections.What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)6 years ago in Personal More Like This
http://snapesgirl34.deviantart.com/art/The-Ultimate-Tutorial-2-0-46849943 You might also get a good tl;dr out of reading this amazing tutorial. Hopefully, if my journal's not enough to understand the meaning of art plagiarism, then the tutorial will be (or vice versa, maybe my journal will help you understand the tutorial more).
What Is Art Theft?
What Is Tracing?
What Is Art Paraphrasing?
Why Can't I Use Other People's Art as "Reference" to Make My Own Art?
How Can I Avoid Being Called on Art Plagiarism?
If you have any questions after reading this journal, or would like to debate with me,

This is one of my personal favorites from sarahfinnigan because it really showcases some great detail and attention to highlights, shading and the surrounding backdrop. The details in the rocks are superb! It really makes you feel as though you can reach out and be a part of this piece!
The fur detail is breathtaking and the whole feel of this piece is unique!

I have always loved anthologies. Growing up in Britain 95 percent of the comics were weekly anthologies so it has been firmly ingrained in my psyche.
I've always felt that anthologies are a good platform for experimentation, trying new ideas and styles, introducing new talent and especially good to read in the bathroom. I'll never forget the impression Heavy Metal had on me when I first saw it.
They're perfect for those moments when you've read through the 100 comics you've bought that month and realized there wasn't a single complete story in the pile.
I've recently relaunched two previously successful anthologies, A1 and MONSTER MASSACRE.

I'm your new Photojournalism CV!Time to party!I'm your new Photojournalism CV!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If this is your first time seeing me, hi! I'm tanikel. I've been a combat documentation/production specialist (better known as combat camera) for the US Army since 2009. COMCAM and PJs are different career-fields, though similar; we operate on the tactical side of the work. I'm also working on making a name for myself in the equine competition field. You can say that I eat, breathe and live this career. It's why I was eager to apply when I saw that the CV slot for it opened up (though I honestly didn't think I'd get approved, haha).
Photojournalism is a fascinating mix of hard storytelling, diversity, joy, heartbreak, politics, and trials. It's about capturing the moment, no matter the challenge.
I know 1pen left some pretty big shoes for me to fill, it'll be a fun challenge to keep up. Over the next week, I'll be putting up my DD suggestion guidelines, information, and some tips and tricks.
Sharing is CaringSo as most of you know I posted a video tutorial of me making one of my dragons on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vCiPn7MUjw&context=C4b5df20ADvjVQa1PpcFNlI9Ovm88GNUagg5YVFu4EzQY19W7S2b8= It's been pretty cool seeing the dragons people have made from watching it. I think it might be fun to post them in a journal, just to see how different and unique they all turned out.Sharing is Caring4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know some of you have expressed concern that the video will just encourage copycats. Well, after over two years of posting online I have learned a few things. First, imitation and copying is inevitable. It sucks but it IS going to happen at some point if your work becomes popular enough. I do have copycats, and I do keep an eye on them. I can't really do much about them, unless they blatantly copy a design. So I've learned to live with it. I appear to have a very protective fanbase, as I am constantly alerted by you good people when anyone might be copying me. I like to think that most people can figure out

Regarding the Boston Marathon BombingI've tried to write this journal a few times, but I am having trouble finding words.Regarding the Boston Marathon Bombing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I live in Massachusetts, so Boston is "my home" when I travel and the city that I most strongly associate with myself. I'm mad. I don't know how to feel about things like this other than to be mad. In an age of immediate and 24 news, it's hard to not know who or why, and endlessly frustrating to watch people fight and blame without any factual information.
I do love the quote from Fred Rogers that has been going around. But I also think about the words of people like George Carlin. Is this just how we live now? I feel like people my age, who were teens during 9/11, live our lives just assuming that any and every day there's a chance we could be violently and senselessly killed by a random act of violence. Does that mean that the people who do these things have succeeded?

I had a very interesting conversation last week. For those that were with me almost two years ago, you know about T. He is a true inspiration for all. Not even two years of all but being obliterated by an IED while still remaining intact, this guy scored a 290 on his pt test and once this shutdown silliness is over, is heading to Air Assault school. Looks like I have no excuse now. All I did was have a baby. I've got some catching up to do. I have this strange need to become 55ths second female qualified for Air Asault, not to mention getting my jump wings.
This feature is for those who are also out there fighting their demons. Hopefully, one day, we can

Trauma. A word about the Colorado shooting.Artist Roland Barthes once said "Trauma is a news photo without a caption." He's wrong, of course. After the events of July 20th in Aurora, Colorado we've been bombarded with an endless torrent of news photos, broadcasts, blogs, and opinion pieces about the actions of James Holmes, their impact, and its significance in the debate of violence in pop-culture. We've got plenty of photos, plenty of captions, and the trauma is very, very real.Trauma. A word about the Colorado shooting.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You see, I have a unique insight into comics and violence. As a comics creator I have written war stories, violent stories, and I've even had an opportunity to play in the streets of Gotham City. But unlike my fellow writers and artists, at age nineteen I nearly died when a lone nut with a gun put a bullet into me.
For more details regarding the incident you can read this article published in Riverside's Press-Enterprise newspaper http://fav.me/d58o9ud . But all you really need to know is on a summer day in 1993 a man I'd never met believed he had the
