more romantic shit in fiction that pisses me offThere's always been this one cliche in fiction that's been incessantly nagging at me. I take it most of you are already incredibly familiar with high school and campus settings in fiction equipped with the jock, nerd, unobtainable beautiful cheerleader stereotypes and whatnot that's been prevalent in a shit ton of films since forever. So you're probably familiar with the old story of the nerdy/awkward/uncool guy that gets picked on constantly or doesn't fit in who's like obsessed with the hot cheerleader who's going out with the big, mean nasty ol' jock.more romantic shit in fiction that pisses me off3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But something I've noticed is how in a number of these stories the popular handsome jock guy is like the school's BIGGEST douchebag and everyone that doesn't worship him is either deathly scared of him or they at least -know- he's this massive reaming assfuck that shouldn't be messed with or else he'll ruin their lives or some shit so they stay the fuck out of his way.
And the jock's hot beautiful girlfriend will always seem like she's

How to make a yarn tailUPDATE: 5/10/2013How to make a yarn tail3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A bit of a disclaimer: I'm not a professional, and at the time of this update, I have only completed two tails, so I may not be able to answer questions you have. This post is more me sharing my method than a tutorial.
I've gotten some questions from people asking me how I made my yarn tails. I've only made two so far, so it may not be perfect, but it seems to work just fine. My method's a combination of two tutorials I found + what felt right. I figured I'd post this for any who are interested in trying their hand at it. It's pretty easy and fun. I've found a new hobby to do while watching tv.
I used these two tutorials as inspiration:
-First, gather supplies. You need yarn, a slicker brush (http://www.jemarpet.com/images/Slicker%20TC.jpg), and scissors.
-Cut three lengths of yarn a few inches longer than you want the tail to be. These will be the base.

DrawingMost people that start out drawing seem to be so concerned with making their own style or drawing their character. Eventually they figure that they need some drawing skills leveled up quickly so they use these quick fixes. We all know where to find, they are everywhere. Just google "how to draw" or find deviantart drawing tutorials. You end up with a bunch of learn to draw in 10 simple steps-guides. 3 weeks later they are ready to re-engage their artistic callings, find their own styles, and drawing their original characters, making mangas, or trying to sell commissions. Yeah, that's probably not how it's going to work.Drawing1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you are not going to commit at least to the fundamental needs of your craft, why do you expect people would pay consistently for what you are making.
Yes, art is largely about expression (or expressing for your client) but how can you hope to do that efficiently, effectively, without actually having a set of skills, repeatable skills. These include knowledge on light
Becoming a Better Digital Artist Pt. IHello people,Becoming a Better Digital Artist Pt. I10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked many times about how to draw or paint and where to find tips and tutorials about it.
I, as a self-taught artist, have struggled a lot trying to learn and understand how to draw well and do digital painting. So I decided to put on a series of journals on this topic providing tips and resources, hoping that it can be useful for anyone who is willing to become an artist.
This series focuses mainly on digital art, but most of the principles can be applied to traditional art as well. This is not a training course, so please don't expect me to give you an in-depth look to it. Just take it as a collection of resources.
I have found most of what I've learned on YouTube and the internet, therefore I will provide many links to pages and channels related to what I'm talking about.
Part I: Introduction
Being an artist in digital painting requires a set of basic skills, no matter the style you like or want to match. Based

Road to Charasuke - Drama CD - Full TranslationHello everyone! I don't know if someone already did a translation but since I got this request from HinataHyuUchiha before... she said if I can translate the whole Drama CD of Road to Charasuke. Here it is! I finally got all tracks and I got time earlier so I did it. I wanted to translate it for everyone anyways! Please take note though that I couldn't fully grasp some of the words. But don't worry, I've studied Japanese in a formal school in Japan so I could, more or less, understood what they were talking about.

XXXX GIVEAWAY CLOSED XXXX :iconkiwikku:XXXX GIVEAWAY CLOSED XXXX1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I think now's a great time to start the giveaways back up again- first with small ones, but building up to bigger and better ones in the future! It's always fun to give back to the people who gave me so much..
Welcome to the first in a series of weekly giveaways by Kiwikku / Moomin-Man
These giveaways are FREE to join and require no points to enter!- lotteries are not allowed on dA.
However, this giveaway is very special- and very sad.
A few weeks ago, I heard about the touching story of whisperwings, which inspired me to create a brand new arts endowment to help get smaller artists known- please read the full story here:
And there's more.
I've created a new group to give more people a boost-
This group's purpose is simple: Great artists, some with amazing art- don't get noticed because they have little to no watchers. I want to change that. And you can help. How?

I'll describe some Photoshop basics for everyone who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: Making selections, Customizing brush, Bevel & Emboss, Stroke.

OUR FIRST MEMBER FEATURE ~ HERMAN!Okay, Here it is!! - Our first member feature and we have the pleasure of selecting and announcing :iconemotedrumrollplz:OUR FIRST MEMBER FEATURE ~ HERMAN!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
HERMAN :iconStilleschrei: for our first feature!
The staff have recognized and chosen Herman for his beautiful submissions and his constant support for others which is of course what our group is all about!
Vin asked Herman a few inspirational questions…
1. Who was or is your biggest inspiration in life and why?
No doubt that would be Jesus Christ! In my youth I was much like a ship without a rudder and at the age of 15 I bumped into Him. I felt a love and joy I've never experienced before. Ever since those days (I'm 51 now), I've traveled some rough seas, lost sight of Him many times, but always have this assurance in my heart! I may always come back to God for He loves me unconditionally. Not because I'm good, but He is!
2. How did you get into your particular art and how long have you been doing it?
Well I love photography and little writings.
Amazing Art!!I promised myself this journal wouldn't be about me, because that's one thing I hate talking about, but a few of you have been so sweet in asking about any test results I've had lately, concerning my health so here it is.Amazing Art!!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
After the course of drugs I had to take for a tummy infection, I had to wait about six weeks which is typical for this type of infection to work it's way out of your body...I then saw the specialist, and had to do another test to see if it's completely gone. I'm still waiting for that test result, it does take a while! As for my liver function, the latest blood tests still revealed it isn't as well as they want it to be...so they will continue to monitor it, and perhaps for some years to come, just to keep an eye on it I did go for a gallbladder ultrasound, to see if I had gallstones and I do unfortunately...but they are not causing any problems so far, so that is a wait and see kind of thing
My neck and shoulders still continues to bother

In my last journal I highlighted my favorite human model sources for photomanipulation. In this journal entry I would like to honor the wonderful individuals that provide stock for background and scenery in the pictures I create. These pictures offer scope, create framing and compliment wonderful foreground images. These images help to create mood and tone for various pieces, providing settings for the visual stories we create through our pictures.

My deviantArt StoryI originally discovered dA by accident and in the early days I was just a lurker here! Then I noticed the wide range of art that was on offer here and I thought about joining and contributing pics of my beautiful country and the nature within. I wasn't into photography in a big way but I got a snapshot camera for Christmas one year and decided to have a bit of fun. I started taking and posting shots and was amazed that other deviants here actually liked them. This grew into a full blown passion and the rest is history so to speak! I've met some incredible artists here - not only amazing with their works but amazing people as well! They influence me and encourage me to be a better photographer and person and I thank you all for being such an important part of my life!My deviantArt Story7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
