My DevaintART StoryThis is my first account and I joined deviantart on 21 november 2011 because I got tired to post art on Facebook lolz.My DevaintART Story8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This journal will be about how I slowly climbed up in the community ;u;
A lot people asked how I improved on my last improvement MeMe (http://fav.me/d7tixjs). Hopefully this will give you a clue.

To be honest I didn't like deviantart at first, because I didn't understand the system LOL. Then my rl friend <forgot which friend> told me how awesome it is and I thought to give a try.
I noticed my other 2 rl friends snoepie115 and Phariam got a deviantart account too. They introduced me to their friends /) v (\
I remember that I was really jealous of their friends because they are popular haha //looks over at Kiruel and Julisia2

Fun Facts about Kings FollyI plan on making some diagrams and what-not to go with my comic but also some background commentary on things such as character development or little tid-bits that might not be explained in the story itself.Fun Facts about Kings Folly1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So here is round 1! Fun facts:
"Kings Folly" was originally called "WISH"The panels are colored in rainbow ordered hues. Each panel is a different color. Look carefully.
The main character use to be Cody with Elliot as a secondary main. This is now reversed.Mercrutio was originally scripted with the ability to speak. This was revoked to better suit the story's plot.
Victoria was a character thought up and named by my friend Anthony and was added later in the story development.
Sawyer was originally intended for the role of Victoria but she has assumed a greater role.
Elliot's design is loosely based off of Link from the Legend of Zelda, the rings in his right ear and his sword are the most obvious carry overs.Elliot's sword is a similar shape to the master sword.The shadow cr

Farewell*heavy sigh*Farewell1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I really have no idea how to put this into words but I think this should be done. Some of my closest friends have known this and I feel like I should be telling of you guys now.
This week... has been a really drainful, hectic, stressful week. And it'll probably be my last week to be goofing and drawing around ;u;
Now let's start with every possible hectic thing that can happen to a girl in just one week.
1. I got the letter calling me to work. As you know, I'm about to be working as a medical doctor; doing my hell-ish internship for 2 years in the government hospital. I got the call, and I'll be going to a some sort of 'training/orientation' on the 25th Nov (that's tomorrow for me) and I'll start working the week after.
The dreadful hours, stressful environment of senior doctors have all be warned to me by my friends who had been working, so yes; I am leaving dA, and might as well put down the tablet pen for forever. Might be overdramatic in a sense, but I ca
RESPEITE-SE !!Perdi a conta de quantas vezes alguém, seja uma grande empresa ou uma pessoa, pediram-me para ilustrar para eles de graça. Será sempre algo assim: "Você desenha isso por nós, e nós iremos incluir o seu nome nos créditos. Isso é uma boa publicidade para você!" como se uma oferta tão patética tivesse qualquer mérito.RESPEITE-SE !!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Houve um caso específico em que um cara queria usar o meu desenho como uma capa de livro, mas não queria pagar. Ele disse que poderia imprimir até 50 mil livros, de modo que é como uma oferta incrível de 50.000 visualizações para mim, certo? Errado. 50.000 não é nada. Vivemos na revolução da informação. Não se esqueça que temos lugares como deviantART, Tumblr e todos os sites de redes sociais. Compartilhamento de arte, assim como compartilhamento de qualquer informação, nunca foi tão fácil. Você não tem que se degradar para nenhuma editora desrespeitosa para que sua arte seja vista.

LampsDon't you?Lamps2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Well, what's not to love?
If not for their intrinsic beauty, for the ambiance they can create.
Lamps have a great capacity to be marvellous works of art. The lamp itself can be a piece of intricate beauty, or the light it emits can create artistic forms on its surrounds. They might depict a scene, a place, or even portray a beloved character.
Here are some crafty deviants who do all that, and more.

the poops of my lifeWARNING. LONG POST. SORRY FOR TYPOS IN ADVANCE.the poops of my life6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you might know that I've recently graduated with my BS degree. I think way since the beginning of March (before my graduation), I had already been looking for a full time job. Just wanted you all to know that I've found one, have been working for a few weeks now. Currently, I'm living on my own and my new-found freedom is really amazing.
A while back, I bitched in this post because I was at a low point in life. I'm really sorry for my attitude and to anyone that I may have discouraged. I want to give a huge thanks to everyone who wrote heart-felt comments on the post to support me, because they really REALLY cheered me up.
After graduation I sat around on my computer each day, and that was extremely toxic. The longer this continued, the worse I felt about myself. The idleness led me to over-think my life situation... and that was really BAD. Questions came up like, What am I

Challenge: Journal Skin January (Sign Up)Journal Skin JanuaryChallenge: Journal Skin January (Sign Up)1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Journal Skin January is a challenge brought to you by bradleysays which involves the creation of journal skins.
The idea is to create a journal skin or gallery skin for every week in January. You will be given a generous amount of prompts to work with - these will include both words and deviations.
This means that participants are required to submit four skins in the month of January to successfully complete this challenge.
What prompted this challenge? Probably the lack of activity seen in the journal and gallery skinning community lately. It is a sad fact that most of 2013 was quiet compared to previous years. I want to start 2014 off with a bang.
December 9th: Prompts released. Participants will be able to start making their journal skins from this moment.
January 1st - 7th: Participants release their first journal skin.

Theme: General Christmas Baking
From holding a recent poll, it seems the majority of you are most interested in baking traditional food for your country/family or food you usually bake over Christmas rather than a set recipe. Therefore I have decided that as long as it is relevant to Christmas in some way, shape or form in recipe, flavour or presentation it will be considered as an entry.
Rules and requirements:
You must include Christmas into your baking, decorating or surroundings in some shape or form.
If what you you usually make isn't very Christmasy looking or tasting
Animation techniques and more Ghibli thoughtsIn my last journal I mentioned the strange effect of seeing super cartoony flat characters moving around in a hyper realistic world. There's actually a name for this, it's call the "masking effect" and it was quite elaborately detailed by Scott McCloud in his book "understanding comics."Animation techniques and more Ghibli thoughts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In comics, frequently the main characters are portrayed as cartoony and simple, while backgrounds often get very detailed. The basic concept is pretty simple. The more cartoony a character is drawn, the more appealing and relatable it is to us as we can more easily imagine ourselves in the role. The more realistic something is, the less of a personal connection you have to it. This is why villains tend to be drawn more realistically, and heros more cartoony. But it goes beyond just the characters... the environment also is affected.
If a person in a cartoon picks up a sword and starts swinging it around, the sword becomes an extension of their body and since it's animated, it becomes a drawn thing whic

Search results limits = faster search for allFellow deviants,Search results limits = faster search for all4 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you may have noticed, we've recently made some changes to deviantART's search -- as we've limited search to displaying the first 1,000 results. This change was brought about because of technical limitations. However, with the 1,000 search result limit now implemented, we're able to provide a faster and more stable search function to deviantART's community.
What does it mean?
The less-technical version:
Our search engine can only grab deviations in huge blocks, then show them piece by piece. It used to deal with blocks of 10,000 deviations at a time which, unfortunately, got slower and slower over time. The new search engine deals only with blocks of 1,000 deviations at a time, which is one of the many reasons it's able to run much faster and keep up with the 300 search queries we get every second!
The more-technical version:
Due to the nature of how our search engine is implemented, all result

ALSO, I'M GOING TO BE DOING POINT COMMISSIONS NOW :3
It has recently come to my attention that I have over 100 (107) watchers... and it's got me thinking. If everyone gave me a llama or a point.. I'd have lots :3 I also realise that that'd sound kinda mean, so as I said at the start, if you fav this, I'll give you a llama (if I havn't already).
Also, some of my friends are moving away.. this saddens me Atlease 4 of my friends are moving (though all but one of them are on DA), and atleast 3 are moving school. It's really the friends I've known for ages too, while my newer, less weird, friends don't really know about all the old inside jokes I constantly say. However, I do have an good ol' friend, my twin sister to tell my inside jokes too... it's just not the same really, she already knows all my good jokes!

WingsHumans have used wings and feathers as personal ornamentation for the entirety of our history. In fact, there's evidence that our evolutionary cousins did so as well. It's suggested that this kind of ornamentation may even extend to a common ancestor of both humans and Neanderthals.Wings1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
What has led to our fixation with feathered ornaments is something we'll never know for sure. Do they represent a freedom we terrestrial beings long for when we see our avian friends? Does it come from spiritual or religious reverence? Or is it just because they are so pretty?
Whatever drives it today will differ between individuals, but there is no shortage of it in the artistic community. Here are some of the wonderful wing-containing crafts found in the Artisan Craft galleries.
