However, now, it’s spring. And the sun is shining.

How did the introduction of Jazz, Crazes and popular media influence the American populace during the early 1920s?
Brilliant question Silverpoint345, well well well firstly the American public heard the music and was like "HELL NAH THIS AINT MUSIC" cos in the 1920s everyone was kinda boring and didn't do much except for talkin about the weather, then after a while they became more open minded and were like "HELL YEAH THIS IS MY KINDA SH*T" and the

Well, after skimming like 30 papers for a final essay
I wanna skim art instead * u* ))
SO here's another feature journal of awesome artists, whose work will hopefully inspire you too! <3
Ahh, this artist creates such dreamy scenes! The huge panoramic shots really pull you in!
I feel like I'm looking through a window into another beautiful world!
I feel really nostalgic from evelmiina's work, I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the slightly muted colour schemes, or the lovelyyy linework, or the shading! In all, I feel like I'm reading a Golden book (or maybe it was another name) but those children's storybooks with the gold binding!!
Every piece is a joy to look at! <3 Plus she draws some fanart of series that I really like, ahahahah! <3

COOPER AND FRIENDS ContestI'm holding a contest from February 18th to March 4th!COOPER AND FRIENDS Contest4 years ago in Personal More Like This
All a participant has to do is draw Fan Art (a user can draw as much fan art as they'd like to increase their chances but the user can only win once )
First prize is a Month Premium Membership on me
and Second Prize is 200
If you're a friend of mine here are two things to take to heart:
1. I can't make exceptions for you and I'll have to judge art based on what I feel is best...if I could have all my friends win that'd be wonderful but I can't (Two other people will judge art with me so biasness doesn't happen).
2. If you've already submitted Fan Art to me that you'd like to go to this contest, please tell me!
GOOD LUCK TO ALL WHO JOIN IN!!

artMy art feels so mundane and simple and automatic and I am not happy with this. I want to make my style more archaic, more celtic, heraldic, detailed, flowing forms smooth like bones and silk and glass, but rough like old yellowed paper and strict inky calligraphy. Intricate like lace and tattoos but as simply captivating as wind carved landscapes. Familiar like old woven blankets but alien and distant, just barely out of the reach of this world.art2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Animal Spotlight: PotooAnimal Spotlight: Potoo2 years ago in Personal More Like This
AboutScientific name: family Nyctibiidae
Common names: Potoo, Urutau, Poor-Me-Ones
Conservation status: Least Concern
Fun Facts Potoos are nocturnal, and camouflage themselves as broken tree branches during the day.
According to legend, the call of the Common Potoo is the mournful lament of a spirit in love with but separated from the spirit of the moon.
Potoos do not build nests. They lay their eggs in the nooks of branches or broken stems.
Despite their small beaks, a Potoo's mouth is huge. It helps them to catch various flying insects.
A 1996 study of the mitochondrial DNA of Potoos found a great deal of genetic divergence between the species, suggesting that these species are themselves very old. The level of divergence is the highes

To say I find you grossly offensive would be an understatement. Let's begin by looking at your early music.
Well look at that. It's all about fucking random dudes and partying. You know, like every other pop artist ever. So you had to go the extra mile and dress in a way that would make Dr. Frank N. Furter cringe to get attention. How edgy and completely inane.
What's this? Suddenly you realize you have a big following in the gay community! Well shit, we can't let this opportunity pass you by! So all of the sudden your music has a big ~*MESSAGE*~ about ~*BEING YOURSELF*~. Considering this is coming from someone who made their fortune doing things simply for attention and shock value, it's almost some sick parody. Yeah, be yourself. Except when you can sacrifice your true image to build up this fake caricature to make a few million.
Oh wait. Now you're bisexual. Well that just validates everything you have to say about the LGBT community, doesn't it? Congra

Joanne Renaud's historical Disney princessesSo there are a bunch of artists out there doing their own historical Disney princesses, but Joanne Renaud's series (:iconsuburbanbeatnik is one of my favourites by far. I found her after the fact, but she actually started her series long before I did- she has a gorgeous style and one hell of an eye for historical costuming, so if you like what I do then you'll probably like what she does:Joanne Renaud's historical Disney princesses2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Her level of accuracy definitely puts some of my older pieces to shame- she really sticks to her guns where I would often chicken out and take stylistic license. Go check out her stuff, it'll definitely be worth your while!
