Olympic sponsors - McDonalds and Coca-ColaIt's almost too easy of a rant going by the title, isn't it? Well, I'll go ahead and do it anyway. I think most people reading this would be surprised at the extent of the idiocy.Olympic sponsors - McDonalds and Coca-Cola3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We are going to completely ignore the horrendous nutritional content of the "Olympic" food, and focus on the calories instead. Let's have a look at the McD menu - http://nutrition.mcdonalds.com/getnutrition/nutritionfacts.pdf How about a Big Mac, large fries and coke, and a strawberry banana smoothie for dessert?
550 + 500 + 310 + 260 = 1620 Calories in one meal. This is already 80% of the daily norm for an average person. If this is one of your meals, you will be well over the limit after two more meals - whatever they are.
How many of the athletes would still be able to qualify for the Olympics if they ate exclusively the above mentioned crap consistently? Let's think about it. My guess would be somewhere between zero and a quarter. How many would win Olympic medals? I think none of them. They would be carr

Art theft is not a crime - say NO to copyrightToday, a DD was awarded to a nice acrylic painting (below left) which was painted from my photo (below right) -Art theft is not a crime - say NO to copyright3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just about the only thing I don't like about is the strong cyan tint, which seems to be more associated with the photo of the painting rather than then painting itself. Overall it's definitely one of the best derivative works I've yet to see based on my photos. I really enjoyed exploring how all the little details differed between the two.
Rpriet1 did not ask for my permission, or inform me of using my photo. A DA gallery moderator just messaged to ask whether I would like the deviation removed, and the DD revoked. I think most artists who've had their work "stolen" would be outraged, but for me the answer was a very unambiguous no. This is a complicated issue, and I think that the vast majority of the readers will disagree with me at this point, so let me explain my position carefully.
The concept of intellectual property, the way it ex

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.
From the Exorcist through Paranormal Activity, generation after generation of “believers” seem to have come to the reali
The 50 Foot / 50 Hand Challenge! CLOSED!THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED! But feel free to do it just for fun/improvement!The 50 Foot / 50 Hand Challenge! CLOSED!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This was a drawing challenge from :iconSenshiStock: and :iconmostlyguystock:!
Hands and feet are pretty hard to draw. Lots of artists struggle with them! Even when other things come naturally, hands and feet can still be quite a problem. The best way to get better at drawing hands and feet is to study them!
The Challenge: Sketch or draw 50 feet AND 50 hands from reference photos or life.
Deadline: The deadline has passed for this challenge, but you can still participate and make yourself a better artist!
You can post them as one giant post, in groups, one at a time, however you want! But please make a FOLDER in your gallery and put them all in there then send me a link to the folder. (If you do one submission with ALL of them at once, then you don't need the folder.)
HOW TO QUALIFY: In order to make this a little easier for myself, please number yo

Transparency in (Macro) Groups - Please read/shareHey everbody, this is something with really bugs me a lot (haha, pun intended)Transparency in (Macro) Groups - Please read/share2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I started to do macro-stuff about a year ago, a habit that is most usual for a photofreaking biologist like me. And I think I eventually improved a bit. But there are some problems I came across with when it gets to publish your work. Groups on DeviantArt are for sharing and experiencing, to get recognition and mostly feedback to improve oneself, right? Yeah. Improvement.
So what do I do?
First, I take my ass out and photograph. I take a (in my opinion) worthy shot and I do postproduction
with Lightroom, Photoshop, Paint, everything that is useful to improve the quality of my picture.
I then search for some Groups where my work can possibly be featured
Yes, I read those rules of yours, I'm a good and thoughtful member, peace.
Stuff About BullyingCopied from :iconHashakgig1106:Stuff About Bullying4 years ago in Personal More Like This
A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.
(That teacher is now one of my heroes!)
Heaphy Track SuccessHi everyone,Heaphy Track Success7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I recently returned from a 4 day hike, covering ~80km.
We were a group of 7, meeting up with the other 2 in our group on the 2nd night.
It was the single largest challenge that I have faced, and called on muscles that I did not know existed!
The official website: http://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/tracks-and-walks/nelson-tasman/golden-bay/heaphy-track/
The first day was the hardest push - from a starting point of about 100m elevation we continued to the peak of the track at 915m. Uphill the whole day but it provided some amazing scenery such as old-rich forest covered in thick fog & light rain. Not many opportunities to stop for photos, since we were against the clock. We ended up reaching our hut (Perry Saddle Hut) at around 7pm.
The 2nd day was easy by comparison and my favourite. I compare the first-half of the day to that of Roha

In The Shadow of Dragons
"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"
