STA Mentor's Program: InformationHey everyone!STA Mentor's Program: Information3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly I'd like to ask how everyone is! It's amazing the amount of deviations we've had submitted lately and I hope every one is doing well!
Secondly, thank you to everyone who voted and commented on the latest poll! An overwhelming majority of you voted that yes, you would like to see a mentor program put into place and would like to participate, whether being a mentor, being mentored, or doing both. A lot of you also asked for more information and how it would work, which is what this journal is about. Please realize that nothing has been put into place yet and we are still not sure if we'll be able to pull this off, but we'll see how you guys all feel after reading this.
Before we begin, I would like to make it quite clear that this is a member run thing- meaning that you will get as much as you put into it! If you do not wish to participate, you most certainly do not have to!

Well, people are threatening to deactivate their account due to certain "dramas" that happen to them. Okay listen to me closely: Why do you even have deactivate? There is little to no reason why you should deactivate, you can't simply take a break or what? I've been in these types of dramas before, but guess what? Never deactivated ONCE. If you have someone that hates you...? Just block him/her and move on. If it's an outside problem, just take a break from dA, there's no need to deactivate. Also, deactivating will NOT solve your problems, it's basically ignoring problem and pretending it'll go away. Here's another thing, if you see your closest friend(s) deactivate, WHY WOULD YOU EVER JOIN THEM?! It's like if someone jumps off a cliff, you do it too, because it's a thing now.
...You guys agree right? It's okay to disagree.

This is my big bro. It would be difficult to live life without him... He's also my BBBBF. (The 4th B is brother.) He's my first Watcher, but it got unregistered as that, for some reason.
We hardly... actually, we never talk to each other, but I absolutely LOVE her art. I guess I just need to say that I wish I could draw as well as her. I know, I know, we both have completely different styles and stuff, but still.
Now some other dA friends that are worth mentioning.
You're cool. Don't think you are worthless. You're one of my most memorable dA Watchers. Don't forget that. Also, I'm glad you're using my body assets!

Guys!!! I meant RESERVATIONS are closed, not submissions! Anyone who hasn't had time to submit their part of the collab, DON'T WORRY - You're still in this! Please, don't feel like you missed your chance! I'm giving everyone time to finish work, or school, or whatever - so that they don't feel pressurized I hope that's cleared things up a bit!!
Looking over all the submissions I've received so far, I've decided to close the entries - we've got enough to make a full picture and I've not even got everyone's contribution in yet! How relieving! Also, for everyone who was worrying about finishing it before Christmas...

Hey, and welcome to the unofficial Super Smash Bros. Character Collab
'Don't Feed the Trolls' needs to die.I wish I was joking, but another bout of sexual harassment against women creeped up this week (only days after the Might No. 9 fiasco). This time in the form of an indi video game a woman is trying to get green-lit to Steam. The game is about depression and is just suppose to help people understand what it’s like living with it, and for this “grievous” action she’s been the target of harassment campaigns. She’s received harassing phone calls, death threats, her personal information and addresses posted for everyone to see. She’s had to change her phone number to stop the harassment, and even pulled the game originally to try and calm this crap down.'Don't Feed the Trolls' needs to die.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bravely, she’s decided to post it anyway and is trying desperately to showcase how awful, hurtful, and disgusting our gaming community can be when we stay silent.
You can “justify” your reasons for hating her. You can convince yourself that sending her harassment and hate messages is for
Scary.Woah, I was sat at my computer and a ghost popped out and was like "I'm the spirit of PC Paul! A guy who liked computers so much he died!" and I was like woah. He put all these viruses onto my computer and then he hooked this machine up to my nose hairs and hooked those up to the computer and then I got nose viruses from the computer viruses because of the electrons or something. I was a zombie and I ate Paul the ghost with my vacuum like Luigi or something! I tried to unhook myself from the machine with my spider powers but then there was blood out of his eyes! Blood out of his mouth! Blood everywhere! I went to the store and everyone was dead in pools of blood! But then it turned out it was my birthday and everything was okay again.

The Big FeetAlright guys, I'm being 100 percent serious here. No jokes...The Big Feet7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I just woke up from a nightmare. This nightmare took place in the same location I've had previous nightmares. In a weird zombie apocalypse safe house, I think this location has been scarred into my brain, because it feels identical each time. Outside the safe house is a massive street, and at the end of the street are a few destroyed shacks that contain fishing equipment, and then, there is a gigantic pond. That has regular zombies floating, dead, in the water. But around this area, you meet a very strange type of infected... THE BIG FEET! The big feet are these creepy things with flabby bodies, long necks, destroyed faces and big, hairy feet. THEY HORRIFY ME! These things were created by my own sick imagination, and they scare me half to death! They make this low pitch sound, and they wale at you when you approach.
So, in this nightmare, I started at the safe house, like usual. I then was immediately told to find food
Art and perfectionismDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and perfectionism1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Perfectionism can be a good and a bad thing at the same time. We strive for it, but sometimes the result doesn't exceed our expectations. And that's okay.
Not every single artwork you make has to be a masterpiece. Make some sketches, speedpaints, studies - just do something. See your flaws, be aware of them - and work on them. Don't put yourself down with negativity. It never helps. It takes time to learn, to gain new skills and make art. Through many hours of work we achieve what we want. And it takes time.
It's so easy to give up. To think - what's the point in doing this, if the artwork is never perfect. Art doesn't have to be always perfect, it has to be made. We have to get used to the fact that we'll never be good enough - there is a beauty in that, because we have something to strive for, to experience and observe.
Making art is difficult and yet it's fun. En
How I cosplayed the cast of Free! sort-of-tutorialGroup cosplay, forever alone style! Yeah, that's all me.How I cosplayed the cast of Free! sort-of-tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”
– Guy Fawkes

10 Reasons You Shouldn't Quit ArtYou know i keep my journals short, so i'll jump right to it.10 Reasons You Shouldn't Quit Art3 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1. When you get an idea for a character, or an illustration or a comic, you can just draw it. You don't have to browse and see if anyone else drew it already, or commission other artists to do it.
2. If you get really good at art, your favorite artist might watch you back.
3. You might eventually get paid for it.
4. Because even if there's tons of art out there, and many great artists, no one, and i mean NO ONE can ever draw what you draw. There can be similar ideas, but only you can bring your particular flavor of art to life.
5. The awesome comments. The better you get at art, the more awesome and elaborate comments you get. Who doesn't want to get praised?
6. Art trades with really good artists!
7. Because quitting is lame.
8. Because when IRL people ask you what you do and you say you're an artist, you get the most interesting reactions. It never gets old.
9. Because you get to browse the internet a
How to: AnatomyHuman anatomy is, for sure, one of the hardest things to draw. But at the same time it's one of the most interesting things to draw, because... hey... we love making characters, and it's nice if they at least look a bit like a human being.

Drawing from life
Drawing from life is awesome!
Look for life drawing classes in your environment, or if they're not available; ask your friends to pose for you. Go have a drink in the city when the weather is nice, and sketch people passing by. There's nowhere you learn more about human anatomy than by observing and sketching real people. There's only one downside to this; dynamic poses are tricky, as it's hard for any model to hold a difficult pose for a long time.
And no... drawing (nearly) naked people in a drawing class isn't awkward. I

Black List of Art Thiefs !!!!Hi @ allBlack List of Art Thiefs !!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
lately, the theft of our beautiful images / piling works on DA.
That's why I've considered the following:
It would certainly not bad and useful to create a blacklist of those who steal our work.
This list should always be up to date and spread to the whole of DA and WWW. Could anyone have control over who violates our copyright and other legal remedies.
We as a community on DA should stick together and act together against the thieves. Together we are strong!
We stand together against thieves and will defeat it.
Certainly not all, but many.

I need help! *cosplay newbie ._.*Hello, all you fantastic cosplayers! I'm a 14-year-old crafter who is wanting to get into cosplay. I've made all of my Halloween costumes since I was about 8 or younger, and I only loved Halloween because I could run around in my costume as I pleased. But that was until I discovered the amazing world of cosplay! And now that I'm older and could do so much more, I seriously want to get into it and I'm dying to go to Comic Con, but because I live in Pennsylvania, I could probably only make it to the New York one.I need help! *cosplay newbie ._.*2 years ago in Personal More Like This
ANYWAYS, I've never really made a costume like those at Comic Con. I know there are many different styles and everything, some costumes plain and some very specific to the character being played as, and that's EXACTLY how I want to be. I'm all about specifics and details and perfection. But since I've never dealt with anything like that that goes with cosplay I've got no idea what to do.
So, I'm coming to all of you guys, the amazing cosplayers who actually know what they're do
