He wouldn't meet my gaze or respond.
"I'm sorry!" he blurted. "I assumed you knew!"
I snorted. "Bollocks, nobody tells me anything. Why ever would you think that my mother would tell her own daughter squat?"
We were in the attic and I had cornered him against the far wallI was fed up with not knowing and being treated like a child, and Benjamin was practically cowering from the vehemence of my ire.
"I already told you I was sorry!" he cried out. "What else do you want me to say, Sara?"
"So you're trying to tell me that during all the hours we've spent together, you never once thought to mention that Aunt Jo was trying to smuggle you out of the goddamn country? I thought we were supposed to tell each other thingscommunicate our feelings; that's what friends do! But instead you go slinking about, keeping secrets from me, just like everyone else!"

Our London deviantMEET Was Brilliant!On Saturday, June 14, 2009, deviantART held a deviantMEET at the Albert Memorial in Hyde Park. Over 350 deviants showed up to celebrate all things deviantART, setting a record for the highest attended deviantMEET in history in the process... until now.Our London deviantMEET Was Brilliant!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Almost exactly three years later -- on Saturday, June 30, 2012 -- at the same location in Hyde Park, London deviants once again turned up in droves. Smashing the previous record, our London deviantMEET 2012 saw over 550 deviants throughout the day.
Most deviantMEETs include a group photo, usually taken towards the end of the event's festivities. However, we wasted no time taking our group shot in front of the Albert Memorial, as we wanted to ensure we were complying with Hyde Park's rules and regulations for large gatherings. With a group this massive -- and awesome -- it's hard not to draw attention!
''The Autumnal Equinox'' by Aty S. BehsamJournal Skin By ginkgografix''The Autumnal Equinox'' by Aty S. Behsam3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love drawing and painting my characters so my friend always picks a full cast for each of my stories based on the looks and attitudes described for each character, and I draw/paint them.
Most of my works feature the cast picked for the characters of a Young Adult novel, "The Autumnal Equinox".
"The Autumnal Equinox" is a Fantasy/Romance dual narrative story about seventeen-year-old Michael and his girlfriend Anahita, who live under dictatorship and in a pretty controlled society. Soon Anahita reveals her true identity to Michael, and lets him know that he belongs to another society, much more powerful than humans.
As Michael discovers his powers and realizes the truth about his real family, he begins to question his presumptions about good and evil, and even his sense of moral

Tutorial Showcase #8DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal. So here we go!Tutorial Showcase #82 years ago in Art Features More Like This

to all the people who have ever considered suicideThere is always a reason to keep fighting. I do not care how pitiful your life is, how seemingly insignificant, how painfulyou do matter. You matter to someone: perhaps it's your mother, your father, your friend. Perhaps it's someone you haven't even met yet, but that's part of the adventure, isn't it? There is always something more to come. Every human life is so incredibly and insurmountably precious. And I will not sit here and tell you that there are people who have it worse than you, because that's silly and useless. In your world, you feel alone and desperate and you feel as if nothing, nothing could ever make you feel happy or even functional again, and that is your world. You feel as if your life, your universe, everything you ever thought about yourself and the people around you is crumbling and crashing down. But I can guarantee that it will get better. I promise you. I promise.to all the people who have ever considered suicide3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Starting this Monday, July 9th, Nicktoons will be showing a special called Korra: Making of a Legend. This special, which will air every weeknight at 9pm (until July 20th), will include reruns of all 12 episodes from the first season of The Legend of Korra in a "creators' cut" format, with commentary from Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, offering "insight into the creation of the stunning imagery, mythology and storyline" of the series. And we will be uploading videos from YouTube day by day for people who do not have Nicktoons.

i have always been a huge fan of art books. in fact i would say that 99 percent of my bookshelves are filled with art books ranging from animation to fashion design and everything visual in between. it was partly why i am so excited to have produced my own book, Walking Your Octopus. one of my goals with this project was to create an art book that was also an art object and this vision guided every aspect of the book's production. as we all know ebooks are becoming more and more popular and i struggled with how my book which was a celebration of all things analog might fit into the digital space. fortunately my very creative friend eric, had the solution...Aereoscope.

to my Bella
You're on the phone with your Edward he's upset
He's going off about something that I thought (?)
But he doesn't get my humor like you do
You're in my room, it's a typical Thursday night
We're listening to the kind of music he doesn't like
And he'll never know exactly what you think
'Cause he wears expensive clothes, I don't wear T-shirts
He's too sparkly and I'm a sexy creature
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time
If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
You belong with me, You belong with me
Walking the streets when you trip over your feet
I can't help thinking this is how it ought to be
Laughing on La Push beach, thinking to myself
Hey, Edward's a creeeeep?
And I've got a smile that could light up your whole life
You haven't seen it in awhile 'cause he's in your life.

I Street Therefore I Am - 01"Defining Street Photography" what the heck does it even mean?!I Street Therefore I Am - 012 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Street Photography is about documenting 'reality' as it happens around us: On the street, in a pub, at the beach, malls...
Funny that this particular style of photography was popularized - or dare I say, 'conceived' by people who themselves
had a rather 'surrealist' outlook towards life - which kind of explains the irrational juxtapositions between the subject
and the environment often evidenced in modern Street Photography.
A Vidya Dāna Of Influence:
Or, 'How Surrealism and Street Photography Bounce Off Each Other.' A Sharing of knowledge:
Eugène Atget (February 12, 1857 – August 4, 1927). His photographs inspired many artists - surrealists especially.

3-month premium membership contest!Hi everyone!3-month premium membership contest!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Like I said in my poll, I'm super thrilled that people have been taking notice of my work lately so as a kind of celebration/thank-you I'm holding a contest ♥
Your mission is to represent one of my two original characters here! You can do one or both, represent them literally by drawing or painting them or whatever, or do something more abstract in any other medium (even music or photography if you want to do something inspired). I'm leaving it pretty open; I don't want people to feel ushered out of their element. I figured it was just a cool first contest theme to hold ♥
- You must make your submission (uploading it and sending me a note is probably the most reliable way) by September 2nd. This gives you a solid three weeks from the time of this posting!
- You can make an indefinite number of revisions / submissions but only the most recent one will be judged.

Oh, guys. Do you remember those little contests I used to host back when I had money for prizes? Me too. And I miss them. So I've decided to ignore my oft-dire financial situation and bring them back.
The primary purpose of these contests is to have art-based fun. While there is obviously that element of competition there, the idea is to enjoy the process of creating your art rather than worrying about winning. It's not about perfection, it's not about skill, it's about doing. You have an

Serif — Roman
In the last two article of the type design series we made a geometric sans serif and added italics and a bold weight. The geometric sans serif is the easiest style to do, but for me personally things really get interesting with serif typefaces. Of course there is the addition of serifs, but the structure and weight distribution is also much more advanced. In this article I will make an introduction to designing serif typefaces. This article won’t be as detailed as the previous ones because this third article serves as an expansion on the first two. In other words, I won’t get into the basic vector tools or type principles, nor will I show you how to design the letters step by step. I will explain techniques in detail when necessary, but generally I will refer to the techniques described in the first article particularly. So if necessary go back to the pre
While my Guitar Gently WeepsI'm sure many of you already know this but for those who don't, late August 23, Jerry Nelson [Floyd Pepper, Count Von Count, Gobo Fraggle and so on] passed away. Jerry was one of the greats, in my [and I'm sure many] opinion, he was the voice of the Muppets, whenever someone talks of a beautiful song, it's normally sung by him. Makes sense since he said once if it wasn't for Jim giving him a job, he would of become a Folk singer [by the way, his CD is really nice, a mix of silly and beauty.]While my Guitar Gently Weeps3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At first when I found out I was stunned, but after a little time, it's ok, Jerry has raised many of us to love music, to count, to adventure, and to laugh. Now, he has gone to the Rainbow Connection, he will be preforming once more with Richard Hunt. He will see old friends, and lost loved ones. Jerry lived a long life, leaving us plenty to remember, so this is why I feel, while tears are inevitable, that we should celebrate, as we did with Jim, and as we did with Richard, we should grab our instru

Several of you asked whether I had a Patreon that you could use to support me, and connect with me there as well. I've spent the last few weeks (well, on and off) putting together a Patreon account - and am now happy to share it here!
Patreon is a site where you can support artists you like creating stuff that you love. It works a little like an ongoing Kickstarter - the pledges start much lower, and the rewards (prints, tutorials, original art, commissions...) are ongoing, too.
It's a dream of mine to be able to work as an artist full-time. Patreon gives me the chance to try if it can work. If you can imagine supporting me - starting as low as 1$ per month - head over and see what's in store for you in return!
