10 year anniversary contest! Paper making!On July 14, 2014, it will have been 10 years ago that I signed up to be a member here on deviantART. To celebrate, I decided to hold a contest.10 year anniversary contest! Paper making!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The theme of the contest is: Home made paper.
The winner of this contest will receive a book of choice from my shop or request one to be specially made for them.
The deadline: July 14, 2014, 23.59 CEST.
As some of you may know, I've started to experiment with making paper. It's a versatile craft that can be very cheap and fun. Paper can be made from all kinds of plants, fruits and vegetables. It can also be made with recyclables. One could even use printing paper or newspapers as basis for the new paper. Designs can be added to the paper by adding items to the wet pulp, adding dye or tissues, creating patterns with objects such as rope, netting, wire, fabrics, etc. One could even create paper paintings using different colors of pulp. The finished papers can be made into stationary; books, envelopes. Th

Additionally, the following comment was provided:
A member of staff has reviewed this deviation and has determined that the theme itself, or one or more details present in the scene, has made the work unacceptable for submission here.
As such this deviation has been removed in accordance with our policies and should not be resubmitted."
"Explicit Pornography"?! Aw, jeez, guys. You must have the worst collection of porn on the planet to think that was explicit.
A 90s Rochelle Swanson outing was more explicit that that pic, and that stuff got aired, uncut, on terrestrial UK TV (god bless you Channel 5, you made the young Jack jolly).
I believe that, for something to be labelled "explicit", SOMETHING must be visibly going in SOMEWHERE. Such was not the case in the offending image,
5th Capsule : Q/A and future planSo here we are, 47 pages done and posted. This amount of work too so much effort and thought to try and iron out and make as best as I could make it. I sincerely hope you enjoyed it.5th Capsule : Q/A and future plan1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you haven't read it yet go here!
The Immediate Future for 5C:
Not everyone will like all things about it, but one thing I think i can say is that it does have it's own style, pacing, and genre in a way. I intend to stay with this format right through the pages. Like I said before, the BW approach is easy for me to do on a daily basis, and if I really wanted, I can colour them at a later point since all of the shades are done.
As for what will happen, I'm going to keep that to myself as I am still deciding where and when I want certain things to happen. I can write the next part in quite a few ways, but the key points are established, the more interesting order is what i am deliberating. There will be more characters, and more issues, and more cool stuff as well.

There’s something about the brilliant colors of the dying leaves of autumn that reflects the wonders and the sorrows of life. It’s as if by waking up each morning into this beautiful world of natural colors, we are being given our bittersweet reward for surviving another year on the planet. We are regaled with a brief seasonal ceremony of the turning of the leaves, nature’s gift for our eyes as a promise she will soon return after her yearly rest. And then it’s time to let winter’s grey pallor unfold over us in blankets of dark cold rain and bright brisk snows; we sleep, the autumn’s leaves having promised

Prize contributors will also have a say in judging since they're contributing something out of the goodness of their hearts and I feel they should have a say in who they choose to award their talents with. I also ask that if you want to judge/submit a prize that you not enter the contest for the sake of remaining objective. And since a bunch of users' entry will depend on the prizes, here's what we've got in the pool so far:

News about wolves :(Hello pals,News about wolves :(2 years ago in Personal More Like This
sorry for kiriban winner, you will be featured soon, I did not forget you I just write some sad journals and my mood is far from nice, so this is not the best time for kiriban.
By the way, there is a new one: send me a printscreen of 1 022 222 pageviews and you will win a feature (no feature for porn or animal cruelty, ok).
Well, I have news about wolves, as I have promised to keep you informed.
If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!
Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.
So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.
The ZOO repeatedly applied te
Policy StatementThis is ridiculous to me, but I guess to be 100% fair to all who visit this page, I ought to post this statement up front:Policy Statement3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have made it clear from the outset that I am simply not interested in arguing with people with opposing views over the internet. To disregard that request is, in my view, trollish behavior. "Discussion" is a waste of my time. Every minute I spend "arguing" with someone (who has not arguments, but rather, beliefs) is a minute spent away from poastering, sending emails, making phone calls, trying to raise a little money, and other useful things to advance Occupy/Anon/anti-SOPA, and other progressive movements.
If someone wants to discuss on this page how to advance the goals of Occupy, Anon, anti-SOPA, pro-women, 'green,' etc., or, how to make these poasters more effective (including suggestions and requests), they will be welcomed and their comments will receive a courteous reply.

Small GiftsThe cat who lives in my neighborhood brought me another dead lizard.Small Gifts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"It's lovely," I observed, "but you do realize I have no use for that."
"Oh! I didn't know," the cat replied. "It's how we show affection for our humans. If you'd like a dead bird instead, that could be arranged."
"No no, I get what you're doing. It's sweet, really. It's just--"
She paused from grooming herself to look up at me quizzically.
"It's just... I can't do anything with a dead lizard or bird. Except throw it away. Which, by the way, reflects in no way on my appreciation of--"
"Wait," the cat sat up. "You throw them away? I worked my ass off to catch that thing. Least you could do is take a bite." She nudged the small green body with a paw.
"Here's the deal," I began again. "What I really need is money. Barring a miracle, I'll be gone from this place at the end of the month. I'm already behind on the rent."
"But I like you!"
Station X reactivated....kinda....http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-24648247Station X reactivated....kinda....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
OK, not really. They're turning part of the old facility into a cyberspace security and learning centre, to inspire the next generation of codebreakers.
Station X, AKA Bletchley Park, was the secret installation which housed the codebreaking unit who cracked Enigma in WW2, and was where the world's first programmable computer was built.
The site fell into disrepair after the war. With the Soviets a very real threat after 1945, Churchill ensured that Station X and its activities were kept under wraps, just in case a new war began in which they would be needed.
It wasn't until the 1970s that the public learned of Bletchley Park's wartime activities.
They're finally turning the place into a museum.

It will propagate out to other sites when Smashwords gets around to it, so Nook, Kobo, and (god willing) iBooks versions will be coming soon. (Watch this space! Or Twitter!) If you're impatient, however, you can get an ePub version on Smashwords that will work just fine on an iPad. (Easiest way is to either buy it and e-mail it to yourself, or buy it using the iPad.)
Now, as to what the story is about…well, it's about goblins. And Sings-to-Trees the elf. (Remember him? This takes place before the Elf/Orc thing, though, although it includes most of the text of the short little bit "An Evening With Sings-To-Trees.")
This is a small epic fantasy, if that makes any sense. It is fun<

One dead console.My XBox 360 died last night.......again.One dead console.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was merrily replaying Modern Warfare 3 and was on the final mission when the screen went funky. Now, this happened 3 or 4 years ago, so I knew what was going to happen; I turned the console off in the hope that a reset would solve the funky-screen issue, but rather than a clear image - I get no image at all.
It's a known problem, especially with the first generation of 360 machines and as mine is a "Launch Team" version (If you worked for M$ at the time, they gave you a special edition one with green plating) it certainly falls into that category.
Something to do with the cheap, shoddy soldering used by M$.
Looks like I'll be better off just replacing it with one of the new streamline models, which is a shame, because last time I got my current one repaired I also had it pimped out with these awesome green internal running lights that made it look nuclear-powered or something

I was asked to find the Eagle galaxy in the night sky so the rest of the assassins may pass through a great wall to escape the oncoming bergade of gaurds, but all I did was point out whales and puppys and birds. And Pocahontas.
We were running into war to fight the Templars for control over the village, but I spent the entire battle tickling Leonardo up on a hill. (But dear god, Leo's so much fun to tickle. :'3)
I spent quite a while swimming in a hot tub rather than looking out for the Grand Master Templar (who looked a lot like the devil). And after swimming and wiping the water out of my eyes, I found the Grand Master Templar had been standing behind me and my colleagues the whole time.
And then there was this conversation as he grabbed my head and lifted me out of the pool:

On pricing your artwork and creating a career...I am going to be speaking at an "Entrepreneurship In The Arts" program later today, and I've been organizing my thoughts. One subject that is certain to come up; "how do you arrive at a fair price for your original artwork?" I have some definite ideas regarding that question.On pricing your artwork and creating a career...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was always told that the accepted model for artists and artisans, when it comes to pricing, was double your costs for materials, figure out an hourly price (double that for your retail price if you plan to have wholesale/retail differentials), add it up and there's your item price. I think this model is pure bullshit.
I was also told "charge what the market will bear!" Again, vague bullshit. What if you live in a depressed area? What if you live in a third world country? What if you're at some artist's ally at a little convention and there is a kid sitting next to you selling her character sketches for $5 each?
Here is what I think. There are so many variables when it comes to pricing original art. Yo
