Five Dollar Batman
Our currency is covered in artwork.
Engravings on a coin or the images on the back of a dollar help us differentiate between denominations, but they serve other purposes as well. They are used to prevent anyone outside of the government that issues the currency from creating duplicates, and the images are supposed to provide cultural touchstones that bond together its users.

Building Rome In A Day Making The “Ghostbusters” Universe
There’s a word floating around Hollywood right now that is coveted like no other. That word is “Universe.”
A decade ago, the word was trilogy. Conspicuous examples like The Lord of the Rings and Christopher Nolan’s Batman set the standard in terms of making money and attracting engaged audiences, and every studio was hunting for their own three-part blockb

Embeding A YouTube Video Into A Journal(Keep in mind here that I am no html expert lol. this is how I do it and what I use.) Check the Description for the embed code as well.Embeding A YouTube Video Into A Journal2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
so I get asked this a lot and it really is quite simple.
First things first, you will need the ID tag at the end of the youtube URL. and you can it from 2 places: either directly from the URL or from the share tab below the video itself. If you get it from the page URL is the bit after the = sign. From the share tab its the bit after the / symbol.
Copy that ID. now you will insert it into the html code used to embed the video in a Deviant Art journal
so to make an example, if I use the ID from the Picture Perfect Pony video made by JanAnimation, sDdL4z5qfr4

This week, we're continuing the love trend. We're doing an art creation contest. However, there's a twist -- you must use three pre-determined items in your piece!
We want you to create a deviation including three specific items that revolves around our theme of love:
Your deviation must contain these images:
How you incorporate these items around the theme of love is up to you!
Of course, you may use more than the objects above, but all three of those objects must appear. Feel free to create whatever inspires you! Maybe someone is creating a model tree with olive-colored leaves in a bottle to give to his love. Or, maybe two olives are sitting in a tree, sipping wine from a bottle. Whatever your mind creates, we want to see it!

Although the usage of life-energy related powers are quite natural in your world... you're one of the few individuals that has mind bending powers. This type of powers are usually quite bothersome to learn, but you have a natural gift for learning that kind of stuff, which caused you to be able to do so ever since you were a kid. You cannot only read the minds of the people around you, and predict their actions, but you're able to manipulate their thoughts fully (and therefore their actions). All wi

Art Instruction Books that I've Found HelpfulHey folks,Art Instruction Books that I've Found Helpful2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So last week I wrote about irrational confidence and how it helps artistsand you all seemed to enjoy it. One of the things that really stood out to me was how many of you went out and bought "Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators" by Mike Mattesi.
As a person that spends a lot of time trying to get better at drawing, I have read a billion and a half art instruction books. Not all of them are good, and some of them I feel even steer you in the wrong direction. So I'd like to try and distill the information that I've accumulated over the years for you here—which books actually worked for me. I'll provide links as well. What a swell guy, huh?

This evening, I returned to into the City to fill out the reports about my first tour out into the Dead Zone.
Hopefully, they won't suddenly shut down the D.Z.T.R. Department and there will be more tours for me to "guide".
Today... was different.
A buzzing, hovering Hunter-Drone met me in the Airlock.
Must be a new thing.
Ah I see,
As I'm forever unable to access ANNET, someone up top must have programmed this contraption to follow me around, shouting things at me.
Thank you, whoever you are.
I never felt more ridiculous.
To top things off, I lost my coffee.
ENGIE: PROTOCOL 1-1-3Zee Captain's note of summons had sealed my fate.ENGIE: PROTOCOL 1-1-33 years ago in Personal More Like This
I felt a cold pull at my stomach. Something else was coming, re-awakened by the presence of Captain.
Something worse than the shuffling noises of the red beasts outside. The sound of falling cannonball.
Whatever that fleshy monstrosity was, it cared not for me, but it's presence here led ANNIE straight to me.
...And it came to pass on the morrow, that the goddess in the machine came upon me and she wanted vengeance.
She was online, the thermonuclear bombardment of the core databank cube had failed to shut her down.
She was still alive, after all these years.
The explosive crash-landing of the hunter machine through the old roof drew THEIR attention.
I was now between two wild beasts, out for my blood.
What was Protocol 1-1-3?
Memories of Directorate weapon codes lingered in my mind, poisoning my thought pattern.
Could it be?
...So this was to be my death.
ANNIE had let me know that she

There was an endless buzz in my ears of massive shell-shock.
Crunching noise of the ground.
For a brief second I saw tiny mushrooms and flowers under me, but they quickly disintegrated into dust.
Impossible. Shock-Hallucinations. I haven't seen grass in so many years.
Crawl forward. Away. Away from the heat.
Farther. Come on Alex. Get up. Walk.
Something was wrong. I wasn't supposed to be alive.
...Ion Cannon interrupts all electronic impulses, no matter how small, effectively scrambling, disrupting all neural activity and shuts down the brain.
Sure, the walls of the little house protected me from the flames of ruptured atmosphere, but how is my mind still active?
Only one thing could have protected me. Something which could bend all known laws of physics at it pleased.
Could it be? The note?!

Ogólnie chodzi o to że narodził się pomysł zrobienia własnymi siłami kolorowanki z psami i kotami. Dochód z jej sprzedaży przeznaczylibyśmy na rzecz Schroniska dla bezdomnych zwierząt w Krakowie.
Na razie chciałabym dowiedzieć się czy będą jacyś chętni żeby zrobić z 2 strony. Jeżeli znacie kogoś kto chciałby wziąć udział w takiej akcji to podeślijcie mu tego journal'a. Do 20 lutego zobaczę czy jest sens prowadzić akcję dalej.

The Avengers - ReviewHonestly I don't have much to say other than it's just really awesome. You don't need to have seen Captain America, Iron Man 1 and 2, The Hulk, or Thor to understand what's going on, but it most certainly does help.The Avengers - Review3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Avengers is probably one of the most epic movies I have seen since the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Harry Potter. It's up there. It's not perfect, and some moments seem to drag on a bit (mostly around the middle), but every key moment is accentuated properly, every line delivered in such a way that you don't miss out on what's going on, every action scene composed in a way you aren't confused, and overall the whole thing is just a joy to watch.
What's really fun about this movie is that they don't hold back. Ever. Everything you want to see in a movie about the Avengers is pretty much up on this screen. You wanna see Thor and Iron Man duke it out? You got it! You wanna see an army of aliens attacking a city? Got it. You wanna see Tony Stark deliver hilarious banter aga

Hi there! ^^ Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm gonna draw a "webcomic" like, about capitals (a bit similar to Hetalia though) but I'm just afraid that I might been copying Himaruya-sensei's idea of Hetalia if you know what I mean ._.
Well, this idea came out when I saw a local Manga Magazine, Kakoii (some of you know about it already) which was discovering some new people who like to draw comics and if I join it and my series works, it will get continued and so on I will literally became a Mangaka xD (such big dreams lol orz)
As for my biggest problem is...I don't really have much ideas...and know much about capitals which makes me had no idea what to draw -.- So if it's wasn't too troubled, you can send me some facts about the capitals if you want, through note or email OuO
And the best thing goes last!
Now you can design your own capital OC and send it to me (through email, inform me by note first xD) If I like it, I wo

"A foreign female patient is staying with us for a month, she's on her way to our house from the airport and does not wish to be seen...so. Go to your room."
My mom commanded as she lit candles and set them high on the book shelf. The eerie flames flickered casting long dancing shadows on the walls. The damn typhoon blasted out our electricity.
I think it was around 3AM or 4AM. The heat was unbearable. My room was practically a candle lit sauna. I tossed and turned...then suddenly.
You know one of them creepy, slightly opaque glass door, that reveals a figure behind the door, but you couldn't really make out the shape? Yeah...unfortunately, a portion of my door had that shiet.
I kid you not, I saw a female silhouette , long flowing hair just gently floated by my door. The golden flickering flame emanating from the small candle on her hand shone brightly through the cracks of my door.
