.and they knew,.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
they knew i'd gone -
when they found me outside crouched
with a string box and stick, singing
i'm going to catch me my death,
make him sick -
now i sit in a gown that is whiter
than white, doesn't suit me,
this ghost to myself -
on the corridor bench with my knees
tucked in under my chin, rattling
with green yellow blue
(i've told you, i know where i'm going)
.and you;.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
i understand if you have to
with the sun painted gold on your
tiger back bone, i won't move
everything else is in it's place,
if you open your eyes up wide,
put your ear to
the lungs that breathe inside
but not in mine, no not in my holy waters,
my still still waters, but still
the sea will surge over
the sand, and i will take whatever
you can give me and sleep, i will say
i want the hand of god between
my ribs, i want a mechanical life,
i want no part in the winding evil
curling itself inside me, please
i want no part in settling down, i want
to see stars the colour of champagne, open
wrists like blind slats so i can see
the light, keep fresh inside
with cling film stretched across,
go on then do it, listen, i will let you,
i will take your lover's song, the blame
be storyteller to them all, sit in
their kitchens, pet their dogs
conceal the fact and smile
as life drags me down the aisle
to that bastard standing there
dressed all in black, the king of all

'The Invisible Empire' by Juha Arvid Helminen'The Invisible Empire' by Juha Arvid Helminen9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Finnish photographer Juha Arvid Helminen conveys a message on the misuse of power in politics and religion in his dark, faceless portrait series, "The Invisible Empire."
"In 2006 I witnessed the so called Smash ASEM demonstration in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki. I personally experienced the dark side of the Finnish police, with young men hiding behind their uniforms and hoods, anonymously committing misconduct. Later I also witnessed the reluctance of the justice system to punish those in uniform.
Uniforms create unity and through them we can for example tell apart a soldier from a civilian. The dark side is the seeming justification to violence and the possibility to disappear in the masses when we do something truly evil.
We wear clothes dictated by religion, political thoughts and tradition to communicate and represent authority but also as a sign of belonging and our ide

of hair wound tight round a hand like rope
of thoughts that sail in and let down anchor
in the night, sleep drifting away on the black tide,
i think you know of god up in the crow's nest, keeping watch
his eyes have rolled at us so much they rattle, loose now
in their pits like marbles, they say he knows
i have examined the slides of my childhood, uprooted my body,
yanked myself out of my years with my own gloved hand
like a weed and stared in disgust, it's only natural
that you should still want to sleep with one arm over
your head, she said, don't you think?
i think the sun lit up
the world's scars
and felt bad, hung its head
through the horizon
and cried in shame
now i don't think it's ever
going to stop raining
(i am holding up my mind, i am shoving it in your face)

The Updated ListBack again for the first time in years. Starting to sweep away some dust. I'll add some new plz accounts as time permits. Thank you to all who donated! The PLZ-Database will be ad free for the next year!The Updated List5 years ago in Personal More Like This
I started this database when I first started dA over two years ago. I kept seeing these amazing emotes, but I could never remember their names when I wanted them. After putting together a very tiny list, I realized what an epic effort it would take to gather a really difinitive list. And I found out that there were plenty of other accounts that had better lists up already.
I gave up on collecting them, and nearly forgot about this account... Until I started having trouble finding some of the amazing new plz accounts on any of the listings. So I decided to update this site. :iconexcitedplz:
I hope it helps! :iconbummiesplz:
The Problem With Character SheetsAlright, there are some pretty awesome character sheets out there. I don't personally use them, but I've seen others make them work. I'm not here to dispute the fact that they've got some utility, but I am here to point out one big problem with relying on a list of traits—which is generally how character sheets present these things—to define your character.The Problem With Character Sheets2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
(Note: This also applies to Mary Sue tests. 'Not a Mary Sue' just means your character isn't a perfect storm of coincidence. It has nothing to do with likeability or even believability. <insert dictator here> isn't a Mary Sue, either.)
I think this approach is, if it's the only approach you take to figuring out a character, a really bad idea.
Take a moment to think about your best friend. What's their favorite food? What are they good at, and what are things they do that make you Google good places to dump a body?

It has now been two weeks since the beautiful fairy tale that was my life has come crashing down into utter devastation and nightmare.
My darling beloved, my Princess, my Cinderella is no more.
She has been taken away from me and from all of you, her legions and generations of fans of her grand and glorious story, by dastardly murderers most heinous, heartless and foul... and as of this hour still unknown.
The personal story of my Cinderella has always been a reassurance (to youth but to all ages as well) that true love will always conquer all adversity, sabotage, and lies. My dear Cinderella

Liam Sharp was and is one of the most sought after comic artists in the business. After bursting on the scene by drawing the bestselling Marvel UK title of all time, Death Head II, he was back in America illustrating top line comics like Superman, Batman and Spiderman as well as special projects for people like Stan Winston. For anyone unfamiliar with his amazing work, his galleries can be found on deviantART. I recently got lost for an entire day perusing a single file of his Conan illustrations.

The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right .. ofcourse. *wink *wink )

1. The five characters you choose can be from anything (books, movies, videogames, animes, manga, comic books, tv shows, whatever you want)
2. I'm sure we'd all enjoy hearing a bit of who they are if you want to explain, but you don't have to. You must, though, at least tell us what the character is from.
3. After, tag five other people (not the person who tagged you). - This I won't do, I'm not as cruel as to tag people
1. Cloud Strife - Final Fantasy VII - shows that even emo can be the coolest thing you've ever seen. And the sword is cool
2. Bahamut - Final Fantasy series - King of the Dragons, what more do you need?
3. Uchiha Itachi - Naruto - killed his entire clan just for the sake of peace in the village, but couldn't kill his stupid little brother... he sacrificed his entire life, everything for his village. The ultimate sacrifice.
