Site Update: January 12, 2012It's 2012, and it's time for the first Site Update of the year!Site Update: January 12, 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just a little while ago, we posted the latest Sta.sh updates and asked you for more feedback. Now, in this update, you'll find all the feedback from those 500+ comments gathered into the Known Issues section below, just after the Change Log, which will tell you about some brand new features launching today, as well as all the bugs fixed since the last update.
The last update was all about Sta.sh, and there are some pretty big Sta.sh announcements this time too, but this update features any changes that have been made to deviantART, Profiles, Messages, Sta.sh, everything!
Many have asked for the ability to share a whole stack of Sta.sh files, as well as just one at a time. Well now you can! In any stack on your Sta
First Impressions - Pinkie PrideDisclaimer: These are my first impressions and not my final thoughts towards the episode. This episode also requires a little bit more analysis than usual, not as much as Daring Don't or Magical Mystery Cure, but I need a few more viewings to gain my full opinion.First Impressions - Pinkie Pride1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yes I think that the episode was awesome, incredibly so. For the entirety of the season I've been largely complaining about how Pinkie has been flanderized, and in an episode focusing on her her characterization is damn near perfect. It's honestly kind of like an inverse of previous seasons where the show has exaggerated her character in her own episodes, but she was usually fine in group episodes. I say close for only one reason--Pinkie's very last line where she says she doesn't know who Cheese Sandwich's name was. Still I can look past that though because pretty much every other part of this episode went above and beyond.
Let's start with the obvious, Weird Al. His humor translates to the show perfectly
We've got a contest!...Avengers styleOur follow up to the "Zombie Nights" contest has been determined, and the theme this time will be an Avengers one, to take advantage of the movie recently released. The premise will be "The Justice League Avengers" in which you can create a submission in one of three formats (Drawing/Painting/Sketch, 3D modelling, or Cosplay). Entries will play off the New 52 from DC by designing costumes for the Avengers as if they were in the DCnU. So as the Justice League was updated for the 21st century, we are asking you to come up with a similar DCnU style costume for the Avengers. Please try to stick to the style that is being used for these DC Justice League superheroes (Superman, Batman, Cyborg, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Aquaman and Flash).We've got a contest!...Avengers style3 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Critique Folder journal will go live shortly after this one. Anyone that submits their work to that journal will have their work displayed in the Critique Journal for some time so that group members can offer input. So keep an eye out for that!
I'm a bit too busy with my degree and business to do be the only one doing submitted critiques so that system is changing. If you need a critique, please submit your query to the group via that folder like usual and a journal will be updated weekly so that group members can help with critiquing. Hoping this new system allows for more varied input. (:

Are you ready for another contest from Raymarg13, and this time we getting pony style. That is right this is a My Little Pony contest. So all you bronys, Pinkie Pie fans, and who ever pony fan you are come join this contest. Before I get into the details of this contest, let me tell you how I got the idea for this contest. Well just a couple of weeks ago as I was scrolling through Netflix trying to find something to watch I came across My Little Pony. So I decide to watch it to see what the hype was about this show, and I must say there was one pony that caught my attention and that was Pinkie Pie. I could not stop laughing as her she was such joy to watch what she does next. I like the other ponies too, but Pinkie Pie was so funny. Her songs was so catchy my favorites is Welcome and Smile. So I will say that I have a more understanding for MLP fans, I won't say I'm

Street Photography: The Capture vs. The PoseStreet PhotographyStreet Photography: The Capture vs. The Pose3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The Capture vs. The Pose
portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

Everybody knows that abstract art can be art,
and most people know that they may not like it,
even if they understand there's another purpose to it.
Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only
what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.
