The Allegory of Plato's Cave.. Can you bring Plato on your mind? As artists we can feel that something strange is going on, with our empty area when we have this feeling of creation. Sometimes don't you feel that "Our Mind is the Matrix of our lives"?
We observe and we watch our world falling. But if we all already knows that the things that we are live in, are not logical and it is a reality that doesn't feet with our inner kindness and our inner emotional world.. How and why we can not change it?
When we paint we loose the contact with time, with reality and start something that it is like a lost knowledge, but if we look art with the expectation of reality then we create again this reality.
We grown up and then our parents learn us how to speak, how to move, they learn us beliefs and they teach us history and we like robots take the shape of the human that this reality is creating. But what if they were wrong? Don't you feel that sometimes?
Something is in our head a
Can someone explain 'renders' to me?I've been bumping into this more an more so I decided to share my RAEG.Can someone explain 'renders' to me?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So there is this group of people on dA who take some already existing art and cut out the backgrounds. That's all. They find some artwork, usually anime fanart, cut the background out, add their own watermark and BAM post it to their galleries as a free to use stocks without the permission of the original authors.
What's most infuriating there is almost always a disclaimer such as this one :
Oi, dumbfucks! Yes I'm talking to you. Why should anyone credit you for something that you did not create. You've contributed nothing. You've cut the background out, something that in most cases, can be done basically automatically by a computer program with a little to no human assistance.
The whole dA's category for stock renders is flooded with this shit --> http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/stockart/3drenders/
I'm sorry but I was under the impression that a render is a 2d image generated from a 3d

So long, Deviantart, HanaBell1's BackBefore you will read the rest, I'd like to tell THIS IS NOT ANNA/THE ONE WHO ALWAYS UPDATE.So long, Deviantart, HanaBell1's Back8 months ago in Personal More Like This
She's already gone ...
Since last year, I've been thinking about handling this back, but I'm not an active person, and editing isn't that much of my hobby. Last year, I changed some settings in here telling a new owner but not got to update cuz of lazy. After all, this year is not much of business, so I was thinking of doing this job again that I will just update whenever I'm in mood for it. Haha
My name is Hana. Hello those designer friends of Anna (if you're still here and remember her), will you still like to be friend with this HanaBell1 even though this is not Anna anymore?
Convention BasicsComic Cons are our bread and butter. They're how we interact with our fans, how we sell a lot of our merchandise, and how we meet with other artists. Comic Cons are fantastic... but at the same time there is a lot of unknowns and variables to contend with. I'm just going to outline a couple of things which should be common knowledge. If any artists who have attended Comic Cons want to add their own advice in the comments section, please feel free to!Convention Basics2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Make sure that you travel light. Try and fit everything you can in as small a space as possible to avoid having to pay for excess luggage. Even if you don't fly, getting around an unfamiliar city with piles of luggage will just complicate things. If the con is local, you can probably afford to have more stuff on your table. But if the con is far away, or you need to take a plane or bus, it's probably best to try and pack as light as you can while still having as much inventory as you can manage.
10 Facts about Aromantics-Aro Awareness WeekIt's aromantic awareness week (November 10-17)! Not necessarily going together with asexuality; some asexuals are also aromantic, so here's to you who are both!10 Facts about Aromantics-Aro Awareness Week3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
1. Aromantics can't feel romantically towards anyone
2. Aromantics can still date and want those ties even without feeling romantic attraction
3. There is a gray area between aromantic and standard romantic (gray-aromantic, demiromantic, etc.)
4. Aromantics aren't unloving or cold, hateful, etc.
5. Aromantics can still be attracted to others (platonic attraction, squishes, aesthetic attraction, etc.)
6. Aromantic "crushes" are known as squishes. These are an overwhelming desire to form really close platonic ties to someone (such as queerplatonic relationships)
7. These are the aromantic colors:
8. Aromantics do not need to feel broken or weird for not feeling romantic desire
9. You aromantics who are reading this are awesome! (so are you if you aren't)

Invisible Hand Of The Free Market, Eh?Oh look, yet another crappy political cartoon warning of the "dangers" of the free market:Invisible Hand Of The Free Market, Eh?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Funny how the most horrific horrors of the "free market" occur in heavily-centralized economies with massive government overregulation. I can't count the number of times someone tried to use COMMUNIST China as an example of free-market capitalism. Then again, these same statists assume Somalia is a free-market libertarian paradise. (What color is they sky in their universe?)

1. How did you join dA?
I had this friend in high school that had an account on DeviantArt back in 2002 or 2003 or so. But back then both DA and my internet connection were slow as hell, the page loads took ages, and I kept scolding him "Can't you show me any of your drawings that aren't on that crappy slow website!??". Back in time I used to have my own website for my art and story's. It was really common to have your own site in that time, as there were no social media websites or whatsoever and back then all of us internet people were programming nerds (or so I like to pretend -- to make me appe

How To Explain DA To Your ParentsCommunity WeekHow To Explain DA To Your Parents6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Moonbeam13 about volunteering for the Literature gallery as a Community Volunteer. And once the possibility started becoming a certainty, I got really excited, and wanted to share the exciting news with my family.
But then I thought, "how do I explain something like this to them?" And realised I didn't really know how to make them understand. That's how I got the idea for this Community Week article.
I don't want to say "most", but a good portion of DeviantArt's users are young/teenagers. It's really important for parents to know and understand what you're doing when you spend hours on end on a computer, and sometimes, saying that you're on DeviantArt just doesn't really work as an explanation. Especially if the explanation follows with "well it's a website, I post my stuff, people fave it and comment on it, they give me watches and llamas sometimes too".
And let's face it, some parents aren't really that c

I don't even.... this is... bad...It gets worse. Recently I've criticized Autism Speaks and their dehumanizing ad campaigns, and I thought that that was as deep as the rabbit hole goes. But today I've learned of... something particularly disturbing. And what I've learned today may or not come up in my Mary & Max review, so I want to get the horror and the disgust and most of the disturbance out of my system. At the very least, I don't want to rant for 15 minutes what should only take up a few seconds in a cohesive review. And no, this article that I'm writing has nothing to do with the movie.I don't even.... this is... bad...7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Autism Speaks in the world's largest autism-focused charity on the surface, but deeper down they're kind of like PETA with a good reputation. I originally thought that that comparison was a little hyperbolic (non-sarcastic on "little"). What they essentially do is create dehumanizing propaganda towards people with autism(1) using rhetoric that, while it may not cause filicide, it at least empathizes with filicide* of disabled

The Different Categories of Art TheftIn a particular art-theft report fiasco that my friend had to experience, I decided to clarify what it means to be an art thief. This is a hot topic it seems. Everyone's on a red alert for art thieves these days:The Different Categories of Art Theft5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
At thieves come in different forms and motivations.
An art thief is someone who posts another artist's work and gives PROBABLE CAUSE for others to potentially ASSUME that they were the -original creator- of the artwork.
There are four types of thieves that fall into this definition. Let's call them Type A ("Photobucket/Google Image") thieves, Type B ("Altering") thieves, Type C ("Trace/Copy") thieves, and the most malicious kind, Type D ("Identity Theft") thieves.
A Type A Thief (aka. "Photobucket" Thief):
Comes to DeviantART thinking it's like Photobucket or MySpace, and they post their personal favorite Google Search images because they want to show off their fav
