Sid Meier's Civilization 5 - ErasSo after playing years of the different civ games, I have deduced when the games go from peaceful, to domination.Sid Meier's Civilization 5 - Eras5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Game Speed - Standard
Game Mode - Normal
Ancient Era - Mainly peaceful minded AI and or players start the game, and are disconnected from each other by The Mist, due to their isolation, they are not interested in foreign affairs with other civilizations other then the City States they trade with and or ally with, they begin planning their progress at this point. 70% of them are going at this point "Diplomacy!", "Art!" or "Space Exploration!!"
Classical Era - Players and or AI begin to advance their technology, and discover more powerful weapons, as well as begin making contact with more civilizations and begin exploring the world more.
Medieval Era - Players and or AI begin their first attempts at conquering neighbors over the littlest issues, such as misplaced cities, or taken resources. In his point in time, players, sometimes AI, start becoming greedy.

The Art of Feedback: CritiquesI Asked: Why do you critique art? How do you critique art?The Art of Feedback: Critiques2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this poll, I asked you to tell me a little bit about your process on how and why you give feedback. I got some really interesting answers!
"...if I give feedback, the other will appreciate the feedback, and then they might give feedback, it's basically a cycle of giving and getting. Win-Win situations are always good."
This is so true and something I hope everyone can come to understand. You don't need a widget or special symbol to give a critique or to get a critique. You don't even need special training or knowledge! You simply must be active as a community member.
"...I first start out with a compliment or pointing something out that looked/seemed really good in the piece of art/literature. Then I get to the part where I point out what might need a bit more work, not smal
Fix that Miscat! ~Fashion Photography V.CommercialThere often seems to be some confusion over whether your Fashion Photography belongs in Photography -> People & Portraits -> Fashion Portraits or Photography -> Commercial Photography -> Fashion. Unlike other galleries that we are slowly defining and educating on through this series of articles, the difference between these two is quite clear cut and there are certain aspects of your Photography that will dictate where it should go.

Shedding the Inner CriticWe have to treat ourselves better.Shedding the Inner Critic11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Will we ever find that ease we dream of - the one where we wake, every day,
a bright vessel brimful of inspiration? Anticipating the siren-call of the canvas, so
magnetic in a way. Brushes and paint are drawn to it. We don’t have to think.
This art makes itself. We are a conduit, a mother-father of pigment children.
Yes - I dream of such things.
There’s not a day when I don’t consider this. Art has weight, and it weighs on us.
Our arms grow heavy even as we contemplate the first line. Fear is a big part of it.
Fear that we’ll be found lacking – not by others, but by the inner bully-child.
Younger, bitter selves that stand at our shoulders muttering obscenities and abuse.
“That is utter shit,” he/she says. “You’re wasting everybody’s time. Who gives a
crap about you? What good is this? Why are you still doing this? The world burns,

9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!1. - Ink can be used for drawing, writing or painting, anything you chose! You can use it with a brush, cartridge pens or drawing nibs, even a goose-quill will do!9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. - Ink can be water-soluble or, unlike watercolor, waterproof. Once dried out, it stays where you left it, it doesn't run away from you!
3. - Ink can be watered down and used as washes, just like watercolor, but it can be used at full strength, achieving more consistent results!
4. - Ink, when dried on paper, results in a very appealing velvety surface.
5. - Ink is in many cases a lot cheaper than watercolor, even school quality (very cheap) inks bring lovely and very satisfactory results.
6. - Inks are colorful! Forget the black ink, you will be able to buy whole variety of colored inks. Also, you can mix them together to create many more colors & hues!
7. - White ink is a perfect assistant in many other techniques, use it to create highlights and special effects!

Misconceptions about SenioritySenior WeekMisconceptions about Seniority7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Browsing the site, it's not that uncommon to find out people expressing their thoughts and beliefs about Seniority related topics. Do you need to be popular in order to become Senior? Can Seniors ban people? Do they have influence on staff decisions? ...and so much on. Unfortunately (or luckily, depends on the point of view ), most of these opinions are just urban legends, meaning they're totally not true. With this journal, I'd like to clarify some of the most popular common beliefs and explain you why they're wrong.
Before we start, I'd like you to read :faq29:. I will be covering this matter several times, but I think it can help to understand the whole thing better.
You need to be famous in order to be choosen as Senior member
WRONG. Fame might help in order to get you suggested, but it's not a crucial requirement. The number of watchers or pageviews on your profile doesn't really influence the choice, since there are members
Beading tools 101BEADING TOOLS 101Beading tools 1012 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I offered to help out with project educate and set up a beading tool compilation for all the beading beginners out there, and it might turn out an interesting read for the intermediate too. I want to explain the tools, the must haves and the should haves.
There where so many different tools, pliers, and cutters, snips and what else. So I decided to make the 101 the one place you could look for, when you need to look up stuff. And to make sure you don't get bored with me babbling away we get right to the point Beading tools cover all those things you need to start with beading and as well those to make beading life a lot easier and comfy. We all do love when it gets comfy don't we?
PLIERS & CUTTERS
I highly recommend to get good pliers instead of cheap ones. Those will make you regret it because sooner or later you will get good quality ones.
Pliers may lose the edgings to get a good gri
INTRO TO CROCHETINTRO TO CROCHETINTRO TO CROCHET2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Materials you need, techniques to hold and use the crochet hook and main stitches you must know, all in one article for you to start crocheting right now!
Why crochet is that easy?
Unlike knitting, crochet uses just one tool (a single hook) rather than two (a pair of needles) and you work one yarn loop at a time; these two factors are enough to make it less complicated.
Do you want another reason to choose crochet?
Well, another advantage is that it’s easier to drop your project and pick it up again without losing your work; The stitches won’t slide off just like with the needles, therefore there’s no chance of a line of stitches unraveling before your eyes!
Crochet projects develop more quickly (this is ideal for beginners and impatient people)
What do you need to start?
You won't need many materials to get started. The basics you'll need consist of a croch

Before you throw that pity party read thisBeing in touch with your weaknesses is important in order to grow as an artist, but are you so hung up on what you can’t do well that it’s holding you back? I'm not talking about the intermittent (or frequent) attacks of complete blockage, or even lack of inspiration, but full out pity parties.Before you throw that pity party read this3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve seen far too many people on dA who post exercise after exercise, writing in the artist comments that once again they’ve failed, they’ve read hundreds of books, studied the masters for so many years, and they still cannot draw a photorealist rending of a man’s head. First of all let me say that I highly respect “self taught” artists and I’m not discouraging anyone who chooses (or must) go that route. However, setting realistic goals and finding your niche is extremely important. Let me say this: not everyone will be able to paint like a Baroque period artist! But that doesn't mean you can't be a painter, it just means

Invitation to Curate
Gallery by Mumtazzaidi
Someone once said that the decision of where to direct one’s eyes is the most important decision in photography.
That could apply to all art. Throughout the course of a day, we are exposed to thousands of pieces of content. How do we discern what is important, what is pleasing and relevant? How do we present what matters to us, and focus attention on those aspects that matter?
Curation is more than packaging
How is your Chroma?As artists we all know that color is our friend, whether full spectrum, monochromatic, or simply black and white. But knowing just how to use this very special friend can be frustrating at times or just downright confusing (trust me, I've been there plenty before!) This blog is for those of us who work traditionally (not to worry my futuristic friends, I'll be writing a blog specifically for you as well!) Here are some terms you need to become acquainted with: chroma, value, tint, shade, and intensity/saturation.How is your Chroma?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
