I have learned that fear is a device of our own creation. I often watch myself and others in situations where fear is turned into rage, pain, and depression. The communication breaks down and often a fight will rage that never end because the real issue isn't being addressed. I have noticed more and more how fear manipulates our lives in negative ways. It prevents progress, undermines positivity, and ruins our self esteem. We shouldn't ever fear the things that may happen, did happen, or are happening. Instead, I have learned that we should fear only fear itself and those who sew it.
For those who sew fear and negativity cannot help us or themselves. It is easy to be dragged down by them and the insecurity that surrounds us all. This is why we must surround ourselves with people who love and care for us. They are the ones who will bring us up no matter how horrible it may be. It is the people who never make a effort to change that we must avoid. They will never truly love or a

I couldn't even breath when I read this one --->
Eleven Gods of the Night are incarnated for the first time in 65 million years, summoned to protect humanity from an all-encompassing evil that is coming in 2012, at the end of the Mayan calendar. While currently incarnated as deadly, handsome men, they have the ability to assume their prior formsthose of gigantic dinosaurs. One of them, Ty Endeka, develops a powerful attraction to his taxi driver, Kelly Maloy, with whom he must fight the forces of eviland of desire.

Hi everyone! It's that time of the year again! This is our annual Secret Santa gift exchange, where we all get together and exchange creative works with one another in the name of Fire Emblem! I know some of you have been asking for this and wondering when and if it was going to happen, but rest assured, it will! You will have a little over two months, as this will go on until Valentine's Day. So think of it as a holiday/Valentine's gift!
Sign up to create a Fire Emblem themed gift (either drawing or fanfiction), and receive a gift in exchange. Normal club submission rules still apply. There is a maximum limit of 100 participants each year.

Thursday, Day 1 of Comic-ConThursday was the first full day of Comic-Con, and artists, cosplayers, and fans (oh, my!) strapped on their most comfortable Con Shoes and continued rocking out in San Diego. It was also the day of deviantART's first panel, "How-To: Motion Books," which was so inspiring, audience members nearly had to be physically removed from the premises because the conversations ended long after they took the microphones away.Thursday, Day 1 of Comic-Con1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

In need one sees who his friend is?..You always have people around you that would support you when you are in trouble or face problems. As long as you have nothing in your life to be envied for, as long as there are themes to rant about together - you have friends! But then you become a happier man, good things happen for you - you actually WORK to get them or maybe they come as your fate decides - doesn't matter really. Once it happens - oh, even at the very fleeting mentions of these positive changes you start getting wakeners from these very people you considered close ones. WTF is going on?In need one sees who his friend is?..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Real friends are tried not by need but by happiness. True friend will be sincerely glad for you when everything is Good or gets better.
But when you are in grief - anyone who doesn't have a stone in their chest instead of heart will be able to console you.
Just speaking up bothering thoughts, don't pay attention.

Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.
That it will inspire you in some way. And that you'll be able to do the same.
Unconsciously, we all build images of our idol.
It's human nature, I guess. We fill in all the blanks. The things that we don't know from this person.
Because an idol isn't a person anymore at that point. It has become an ico
Why artists get so pissed off --"Why do you artists always get so pissed off when someone uses your artwork? You should take it as a compliment!"Why artists get so pissed off --1 month ago in Personal More Like This
"You should take it as a Compliment --"
A compliment would be admiring an artist's work where they post it, and if you really want to use it that badly, complimenting them would be you having enough respect for them to ask first.
Most of us don't get mad because you use it, it's because you use it without asking or pretend you didn't know who/where it came from when there's a link to where you can find the original artist on the image.
Taking someone's car to crash it in a derby isn't a compliment to them any more than taking someone's art to wreck it or claim it is a compliment. More so without asking.
"What about realism artists?! They copy from photographs all the time, no originality there but you don't yell at them for copying photos! What makes

Why artists care when you copy their designThis goes to the people who say 'I only referenced it' or 'the design inspired me' as well.Why artists care when you copy their design2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've seen many, many issues about this recently, and wanted to tell people why it bothers artists so much. Of course it differs for everyone, but I'm going to mention some pretty universal points here.
Reason 1) When an artist spends hours on their design, making sure every single colour and marking is perfected, and someone just rips it off and reproduces all your hard work in 10 minutes... its a bit of a kick in the ass. Its just unfair.
Reason 2) Us artists tend to get very attached to out characters, especially furry artists and their fursonas. A fursona is a representation of ones self as an animal, and when someone copies/references from the design, it drives us nuts. You are not the same person as us, stop trying to make your fursona the same as ours because your fursona is meant to be YOU, NOT your idol.
Reason 3) We artists get paid for our designs sometimes by other people, and the des

I saw ANOTHER thing on the side bar, so I clicked again.
Things got even more bizarre.

PainPain is a gift. Humanity, without pain, would know neither fear nor pity. Without fear, there could be no humility, and every man would be a monster.
