Rui Palha: the movie PhotographerAs you might guess, I often scour the web in search of images that touch my heart. I will drop whatever I am doing to find out more.

The director couldn't have done a better job, starting with the window frame and the scratched and worn glass from which we look through. The actor's hand in pocket, the other holding a newspaper, keeping it close to himself; The hunch something weighing heavy on his mind; The backlight putting him in silhouette giving him an anonymous feel perhaps it's what he's feeling; People ignoring him what life often is about you're on your own I was moved by its simplicity and its complex emotion of loneliness.
Rui's images seem to be devoted to that independent soul. He is drawn to the loner, the one who st

The Raven by Edgar Allen PoeOnce upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.'
Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore -
Nameless here for evermore.
And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
`'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; -
This it is, and no

I apologize that I was unable to complete them last weekend though I will do so, if not try my best, to complete them this weekend.

A Steam Filled Weekend!Hey all! Sorry if I've been silent for the past few days, but I've been out of town for my birthday weekend. Although my Birthday isn't until the 16th, we used this weekend to celebrate.A Steam Filled Weekend!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So my fun weekend started on Saturday, October 11th, 2014. Originally we, my mom and myself, had planned to go to the GA State Fair. I was up and ready to go an hour before we had to leave and my mom..... overslept. Despite repeated attempts to get her to wake up. So then as a strongly pushed suggestion, I asked if we could go to Tifton and check out the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village.
For those of you who don't know, the GA Museum of Agriculture, or better known as the "Agrirama", is a small museum dedicated to GA's agricultural history and how it has influenced the state over time. The museum also has a historic village and ALL of the structures are real historical buildings. All of which were carefully relocated and established on sight. Everything from individual homes ran
Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.Respect Yourself3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

Ladies, you oughta read this.You know what the most frustrating thing in the world is? When a guy or girls girlfriend rejects or denies a compliment. Its just....really frustrating! I mean, imagine how awkward we feel when THIS happens. (In this situation, Im going to use a boy and a girl)Ladies, you oughta read this.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Boy: You look really pretty.
Girl: No, I dont.
Boy: No, really, you do.
Girl: No, Im ugly.
You can see that this puts him in an awkward situation. When someone compliments you, simply say, "Thank you."!
When your boyfriend (or girlfriend) gives you a compliment, just accept it. It may be inconvenient or maybe even abit awkward, but do it anyway! All we're trying to do, is make you feel loved and feel good and when you deny a compliment, all its doing is just making us scared to compliment you again, afraid thats its just going to turn into a big fight or something.
You should just /accept/ the respect given to you, no matter what form its in rather its a compliment or just a kind gesture, it helps encourage men (and

This so-called MOOD SYSTEMMany people, especially emoticonists, have been wondering about this mood system. As far as I know, spyed came up with the idea, and he told me that it's his favorite project that was released with v5. spyed messaged me around 2am a few nights ago and asked me to take a look at the Mood System. He explained to me what it was and what his vision of it was. I went through the list, adding in emotes and categories/sub-categories. A half-day later, the moods system was complete with 190 total moods and emoticons. Many of these emoticons were not in emoticon legend. I could have picked out more that were in there, but I ultimately decided that it would be a good thing to bring in some new life. Much love goes to Pachunka, dionyziz and the other IT geeks for coding this up in collaboration with the Creative Team. If you have any suggestions for the moods system, feel free to post them here and I'll see what I can do.This so-called MOOD SYSTEM9 years ago in Personal More Like This

Why I disagree with Kony 2012Many on here and on Facebook have messaged me about the Kony 2012 movie. It's very well-made and definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.Why I disagree with Kony 20124 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Kony is a terrible criminal, and I am very much for bringing him to justice. However, I do not share the enthusiasm of the overwhelming majority about the movie and the proposals put forward by the makers. Here are ten criticisms I came up with, in no particular order.
1) If something is being hyped up all around you, this is a strong signal to think for yourself. Be especially suspicious when someone wants to use FORCE to do GOOD. Paradoxically, if you REALLY care - don't fall for appeal to emotion, as is being done here. Consider the implications and outcomes, rather than the motives. Don't let the public opinion shape yours, let the facts do so. Don't let one issue overshadow other issues which could be more important. Don't be afraid to disagree with the majority. Truth i

Only issue is I still don't have a scanner so it will probably bee a while before I can actually get a decent scan and be able to post them here. But in the mean time I'll try and take a photo of these works and use them for the time being. Anyway... I've started working on Gunpowder Falls again! But recently I took a short side track and have been working on... :icongaspplz: a Standard Gauge 4-4-0!!
The concept was sparked by a lot of hypothetical and "What If" scenarios about commissioning a locomotive from the Kloke Locomotive Works, the same guy(s) who built the Central Pacific "Leviathan" and the Northern Central RR "York". The locomotive, like the York, will be using components from both the UP 119 and CP Jupiter, but will have my own twist and style added too it following what would be earlier Empire River & Western practice.

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat
