Contest Journal (Apology and more prizes!)EDIT: So, one of my DA friends brought it to my attention that I was being sort of irrational yesterday The deadline will still be August 15th but it will not be cancelled. I now have four entries. I mean, I truly need a couple more but I have enough so that I can't cancel it. Thank you to everyone who has entered and even said they would enter XD I'm rather excited to see what you will all come up with.Contest Journal (Apology and more prizes!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Alright, the concept is very simple. There are four seasons, right? Spring, Winter, Summer, and Fall. I want all of you to design an outfit using the concept of one of the four seasons.

Suicide.A girl in our school committed suicide 8 days before the end of the school year. Everyone went to her funeral. But when we got back to school, the other girls just continued saying things like;Suicide.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"She was useless anyway."
"and ugly too."
"She probably just wanted attention, but she took it too far."
"Leave it to her to make that mistake, she was a stupid slut in life, and she's still one in death."
I couldn't take hearing that, so I took the guys (Because I'd rather hang out with all boys than hang out with bitched like that.) and we walked down to the office, refusing to go back to our classroom until those girls got their punishment for saying such harsh and cruel things.
What's worse is I knew the girl, she was one of the only girls I hung out with, and it was only because she was a nice, and truly honest girl. She was far better than those hoes at our school will ever be, but they drove her to that. They're supposed to be women, but the have no compassion, or love for anyone. No matt

The Bracelet ProjectI saw this on tumblr... I thought I'd share it with all of you.The Bracelet Project3 years ago in Personal More Like This
“The Bracelet Project.
Each disorder has a color that corresponds to it.
Anorexia is Red.
Bulimia is Purple.
EDNOS is Pink.
Depression is blue.
Self harm is Orange or Black.
Fasting at the time is Green.
Suicidal is Yellow.
Overweight/Obese is Turquoise.
Anxiety/Panic disorder/OCD is Teal.
Adding 1 white bead means you’re trying to recover.
If your bracelet is half of the color that your disease is and half white it means you’re in recovery.
You can also make the strand the main disorder you have then add beads to your lesser disorders, or if you have EDNOS, if you have more anorexic or bulimic tendencies then you can add a red or purple bead.
If you see a girl in public wearing one, you are supposed to make eye contact and point to your bracelet. If she nods then you know she is part of the bracelet project.

My DeviantArt StoryThe greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.My DeviantArt Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
December 25th, 2006. I was sixteen. Everyone wore masks, they didn't like having to stare at the monster beneath whenever they looked in the mirror. Most of my time was spent writing and learning how to operate my dad's Minolta x700. Digital art slowly took over traditional mediums. I was never really one for socializing, so there were many nights spent with Dr. Pepper and pumpkin seeds while I designed the night away.
The art in this gallery is a mix of favorites and imagery similar to the content of the paragraphs.
These artists deserve some recognition - go leave them a comment!

hidden by commenter BS!Noreally I don't like to be very open or opinionated when it comes to issues with DA. But I have just taken notice to something that seriously should not even be an issue! Apparently now other people can edit and hide their own comments they make on YOUR page. So let's say your trying to report someone for harassment, they can basically hide their comments to you and there is no evidence to prove they were harassing you. So therefore they can keep doing it over and over but because they can hide their own comments on your page now they can't get introuble! How messed up is that ! That is basically giving people the "OK" to do these sort of things. And because the Staff does not accept screen shots as proper evidence there is no way you can prove you are being harassed by others!hidden by commenter BS!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

A word of two about drawing wolf's eyes :)Hello dear Members,A word of two about drawing wolf's eyes :)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is my first journal entry for the Group, so first of all: howdy to all
I wanted to do something that could help you a little with drawing wolves. So I will begin with something I am familiar with in drawing - the eyes. Many of you are suprised when, for example, their blue-eyed wolves are declined from "Realistic Wolves" folder, so maybe a few words about natural wolf eye's colours for a warm-up
Most popular colour is yellowish-green or greenish-yellow which can look differenty in various light's conditions. Great example of that colour is Chetan from WolfPark:
Take a look at wonderful Orca, he's eyes have also rather pale, but more yellow than green shade and come to life in bright light:

Apparel Collection: Monster TalkTogether, we are deviantART, an amazingly diverse community of fantastic individuals from all reaches of the globe. It’s a beautiful, creative ecosystem where the wildest voices can speak their minds and share their expressions. When designing this collection, I wanted to celebrate that diversity. When you’re at a concert, on an airplane, or sitting at a café, it's sometimes fun to look at the people moving and talking around you, each with their own unique style and outlook. Be part of the big conversation, where all voices matter and everyone can be involved.Apparel Collection: Monster Talk3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The characters in this piece spawned from a conversation I had while teaching a high school class on character illustration. The topic was making interesting-looking characters, and everyone seemed to agree that you have to make a complex contour shape in order to satisfy the goal. I countered by simply drawing a line of jelly bean shapes on the board. At first, it looked boring -- just a bunch of wonky

New Pope: Gay Marriage is the Work of the DevilNew Pope: Gay Marriage is the Work of the Devil2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Here's a 2010 equalitopia article by r0b where the newly elected Pope Francis (Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio) describes gay marriage as being the work of the devil:
Argentina’s highest-ranking Catholic prelate has warned that the country’s gay marriage bill is a “machination” of the devil, reports Pink News.
Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio has called on priests in Buenos Aires, where he is archbishop, to protest against the bill, which is progressing through Argentina’s parliament.
In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, he wrote: “Let’s not be naive, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God .. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.

Lines and Stanzas
• Do you have a clear rationale for breaking each of your lines where they currently end?
• Do your linebreaks generate suspense and surprise, making the reader want to find out what will happen in the next line?
• Are you employing a combination of end-stopped and enjambed lines?
• If you have more than one stanza, do your line groupings increase the impact of your poem’s style and subject matter?
Meter and Rhythm
• Does your poem have a discernible rhythm – either a scannable metrical pattern, or, if your poem is in free verse, a distinctive cadence that distinguishes it from prose?
The Music of Poetry
• If your poem rhymes, are the rhymes original, intelligent, and necessary?
• Have you fully considered alternatives to perfect end rhymes, such as slant, internal, and eye rhymes?

Structure and Design
• If you are writing a short story, does your story begin at the moment of maximum tension and end at the most aesthetically satisfying place?
• If you are writing a short story, is the conflict immediately clear? Does the conflict generate some essential change in the characters or their situations?
• For longer prose, how much explanation is in the beginning? Too much? Too little?
• Are your sentences of appropriate length - is there variety, or are there too many choppy/run-on sentences and if so do they serve a particular purpose?
• Have you clearly differentiated each of your main characters and their primary goals?

Literature Preview Images - What Can I Use?Hello, everyone!Literature Preview Images - What Can I Use?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Using a preview image for literature is something that can be a good creative addition to your piece.
However, there are some rules that go along with it.
What sort of things can I use for Preview images?
Preview images which were created using your own resources and your own efforts are most appropriate for use; you should not simply 'take' images which belong to other creative people without first getting their permission. Otherwise all preview images must abide by the deviantART terms of service as well as all other relevant policies.
Simply saving a random picture you found online without obtaining the artist or photographer's exact permission is against the rules of dA. More so than that, it is also unfair to the person who originally created the piece. Simply saying "I got this image from here" and providing a link.
If you didn't ask the person and they did not say yes, then please do not use the image. This could can put deviants in trouble as wel

Editing is often the hardest part of writing a book, because chances are, once you reach the point where you need to edit, you either are tired of seeing the same pages over and over, don’t know what to do, or simply don’t know how to correctly go back and fix your mistakes. Hopefully these five tips below will help if you have this common, yet deadly problem.
-Write with the heart first, then edit with the mind.
This is something my teacher taught me, but if the advice sounds familiar, then you most likely heard this famous quote in the movie, Finding Forrester (2000): “No thinking-that comes later. You must write your first draft with your heart. You rewrite with your head. The first key to writing is…to
Monthly Challenge: JuneThat's right, they're back.Monthly Challenge: June3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've noticed, time and time again, that writers seem to have problems finishing their stories. Why? Well, it's simple, really. Most of the time it is due to the writer starting with an amazing idea, and writing it down the moment it pops into their head. The problem? Once they are several chapters in, they get stuck. They don't know what to write next, or where they are going with their story. I have for you, today, a simple solution to this problem. The moment you recognize an amazing idea, before writing the first chapter, write the last chapter. The climax. The big, unexpected, plot twisting, unimaginable end.
If you start by writing the climax, then you know what it is you are building up to suddenly, before you know it, you are writing chapter after chapter, and each word, each sentence and paragraph, has meaning because you know what you are building up to. If you know where the story ends, then writing the how to get there is like clockwork.
