Seriously... just read!
This might sound very random and sudden, but I was thinking a lot about my gallery here on DeviantArt lately, and also about how many people know it for the artwork I do.
I wanted to say how precious and meaningful every single comment and favourite is to me. Even when I seemed very quiet and seclusive for the past two years, you never gave up faith or hope in me and showed me to keep on going and never give up. I kept up uploading artworks here but most of the time, I didn't have the time to update my journals or to keep you updated about my artsy stuff and life. This really is something I want to change here, despite my come-back being slow, I gradually want to get more involved in the community of DA again and also help other artists to be pushed more into the light.
I've been a member of DA for 8 years, yet I became more active a while after making this account, and I gradually grew t

Copying vs. Tracing vs. Referencing[Updated April 2013]Copying vs. Tracing vs. Referencing4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The title of this is fairly self explanatory. It is meant to define how our group views copying, tracing, and referencing as well as comparing what exactly the difference between these terms mean.
More than likely, those of you who are currently reading this have been directed to do so as you have broken a group rule. For those of you who are reading this because you are interested in joining our group - we thank you immensely for taking the time to do so.
For those of you who were referred here, please be sure to read all of the information provided here.
One of the most common arguments we encounter comes down to the definition of the words; copy, trace, reproduction, and reference. We want to take an educational approach to informing those who were found in violation of our rules in regards to copy/traces/reproductions by defining each word.Copy
Noun: A thing made to be similar or identical to another.
Transitive Verb: To cop

And take yourself some time to embrace yourself with the story of my newest dragon of incense, Dammar. This is such an incredible gift yet again by the wonderful Fox Amoore who continuously inspires me and never ceases to amaze me. This is the best interpretation of a dragon's story I have *ever* heard. Seriously.
There are so many details, real vocalists, voice actor, an incredible flute player, real self written Japanese lyrics.
If you don't listen to it, you definitely miss out on something great! °^°
Here is the painting again which inspired him to write this incredible piece of music and a wonderful story encompassing the creature's nature:
Yes, there are peaceful dragons!
Dragons totally rock, too, bw!

Artist WalkthroughThis walkthrough focuses on:Artist Walkthrough2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- guiding you as an artist and improving your artistic skills
So having said that... let's get started!
I have been drawing for a long time. Since I was little I would draw all the time on anything I could find. That passion for drawing and art has always stayed with me. But the problem is talent or potential will only get you so far. If you really want to become a great artist you will have to put in many hours of work. And you would preferably have someone there to guide you. Even now I am learning about basic skills I wish I had learned years ago. That is the problem of being self taught... you have to figure everything out yourself. Of course there are benefits to that too. Self taught artists are generally very motivated and passionate people. I have only come to the point where I am now just because I am passionate and slightly obsessed with drawing. But I want to know more, learn more and improve more. So that is why I am setting up this little drawi

The Top Reasons for Manuscript RejectionOne of the things that the literary agency I work for does some weekends out of the year is teach seminars on query writing and the first 5 pages of manuscripts (which, basically just means the first page of the manuscript). The seminars last only a day or two, but aim to help writers improve their queries and start of their books so that they have a better chance of standing out in the ever-growing slush pile. Since I know many members of the literature community here aim to one day be published writers, I thought I would share our sheet of the top reasons for manuscript rejections. Please note: These are in no particular order.The Top Reasons for Manuscript Rejection1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Wrong genre Agents have guidelines for specific genres that they like to represent. Just like you and me, they have certain genres they love and certain genres they don't. Sometimes, it's not because of personal preference, but because they don't know the market for some books as well as other agents who are very passionate about

Life is Beautiful...Isn't it?Life is Beautiful...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There are magical moments in life where I get the opportunity to remember that I'm nothing but an insignificant living being among 8 billion others.. on a planet among 8 in a solar system among billions in a galaxy among trillions and all in one universe-- possibly among others?-- where whether or not I died, would hardly leave a mark even in the face of my own city.
The world goes on without you.
Yet I once realized, that a meaning in life, is to give life a meaning.
Live your dreams! You only live once.
Don't do idiotic dares for the sake of saying you did them-- go tell that cute boy or girl you like them!
Go tell the world your name!
Why must everything be over after one failure..?
Sure, the humiliation of having everyone look down upon you is torture itself... but when you get back up and show everyone that you're somebody, it won't be you who'd be ashamed for not realizing your potential sooner-- but them!
