Contest! Draw Sophie and get a MH Drawing!What is this contest about?:Contest! Draw Sophie and get a MH Drawing!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Draw my doll Sophie
you can draw her chibi, realistic or in your own style, but her face must be always visible and you must draw her joints. She is a doll, I wouldn't like her to look like she wasn't. This means you MUST draw her joints, but you can draw her with any expression, like if she was alive.
You can draw her with the clothes she has in the photos or even design your own clothes for her, so you have total freedom about it.
how many drawings can I do for this contest?:
As many as you want without limit, as long as they are 100% original and finished (full colored). No work in progress, no drawings in striped paper.
Traditional or digital?:
Both are accepted
Please, be original:
Don't steal other people's drawings, don't use bases, and please, don't just copy a photo T_T
You may use a photo as a reference, but don't traze it.
If you do, you will be kicked out from the co

Well, here's the contest I promised you. The idea for this came last night, while my family reminisced about a doll I used to have when I was small. It was a nice expensive gift from a distant aunt of mine. I mean, the thing was really pretty to start with: I can remember it having a fancy pink dress and a glass face and little brown curls. You know, the kind you'd expect rich old ladies to have, I suppose. Everything was
Quitting the AddictionIt seems like people nowadays are addicted to sadness. We all want a reason to feel loved. It also seems that we can't help but feel sadness, loneliness, hatred, pain, and other emotions we really dont enjoy. or do we? i think the sadness we feel starts off true, but eventually, we fall into it, and it becomes part of us. it's no longer weather, but our climate. and the sad part is that we allow it to happen. no matter how much we say we hate it, we get to a point where there is no other emotion we can feel, or rather, we WANT to feel. i think we start to despise happiness, rather than appreciate it.Quitting the Addiction3 years ago in Personal More Like This
every human being will suffer at some point in their life, but at what point does it stop? isnt that the question on our minds? "when will this end? when will it be over?" well i have the answer. choose to believe me or not, but i promise this is true. YOU decide when it gets better. yes, your situation may remain the same, or even get worse, but the minute you wake up, you have the choice

BullyingOkay so in my gallery there is a picture about being bullied. Guys don't be afraid to talk to your parents about it. Trust me. I know. Just earlier today I finally had the last straw. I finally broke. Someone who hates me for no reason other than to be a bully told me she found my "Diary" which I don't even own a diary, never have never will, at her friend Shata's house (which I was only there once a year ago and I didn't take anything with me) and she claimed that inside of it, it had details about me drowning two little kids. It had my name and phone number inside of it.Bullying3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay guys, shes been bullying me for a while, and I've been dealing with it and not telling my mom.
But today, I broke.
I sat in my garage crying because she said she was going to turn it into the police, and remember guys I already have a record, and I actually started contemplating suicide. I knew I didn't do it, but who would believe a Juvenal delinquent right?
But I knew I didn't want to die yet. I wanted to live

Sometimes, things don’t happen then way that you want it to and it sucks, but don’t let one event in your life make you live your life differently. Don’t let that one thing in your life that went wrong, change the way that you see things. Don’t be sad that you are still alive, be happy an grateful that you are still alive. Everything will get better. I can promise you that it will. As long as you are trying your best, you can achieve anything - You can go far in life.
I get it, it could be one of those days, where your day starts off really badly and you keep hoping and hoping that sometime soon your way turn around for the better, but it doesn’t, right? The next time you have one of these days, remember that you have the ability to change the way your day turns out, if you put enough effort into it. You will be able to do it, just believe in yourself.
You are not worthless. Don't ever let anyone make you think

Tony Ray-Jones was an English street photographer. In the early 60′s he traveled to the U.S for studying for a Master of Fine Arts in graphic design at Yale. He moved to NY after graduating and got a job as an art director for CBS records but he was determined to become a photographer. In New York he became good friends with Joel Meyerowitz and became part of the NY street photographers scene led by Garry Winogrand.
Jones kept notebooks, a journal if you'd like in which he wrote down his thoughts, lists and plans about photography. In one of those lists, titled "Approach" he listed some tips for better street photographs. These tip are still valid today and can be used as a basic guidelines to better street photography.

#SixWordStories: Monthly ShowcaseA type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.#SixWordStories: Monthly Showcase2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Legends-Of-Skyrim is hosting its first contest to celebrate the opening of the group!
The aim of the contest is to write a piece of literature from the point of view of an evil character related to one of Skyrims main quest-lines. A few examples of acceptable characters are: Mercer Frey, Ancano, Alduin, General Tullius/ Ulfric Stormcloak etc.
The evil character can be portrayed in any way you like. Will your piece offer redemption to the character, or were they intending to be evil? Were they working for the greater good but wrongly accused, or maybe they genuinely believed that their evil actions benefited everyone? Your entry can also throw the evil NPC into any situation you want, as long as it is lore friendly, and it can include other NPC's that the evil character would have encountered.

How to Write a Proper CritiqueIts my personal opinion that deviantART has a pretty good critique system, but what good is a wonderful critique system if you dont know how to write a proper critique? Most of the critiques Ive seen around here have been pretty good, but heres a guide that I came up with just in case you need a little help. =]How to Write a Proper Critique5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Dont forget to take this article with a grain of salt.
The DosUseful informationWhat the artist has done rightWhat the artist has done wrongHow to improve
A critique should be useful.
A critique should provide useful feedback on the piece thats being critiqued. It should include what the artist has done right, what the artist has done wrong, and most importantly, how to improve.
Tell the artist what theyve done right.
Its important to let the artist know what theyre doing right not only because its useful knowing that, but because its encouraging. You never want to have your critique sound too
Ib 1.04!Hello everyone! You guys may not know me, since I don't post journals, but I'm ToxiicLolita and I help out in the group^^Ib 1.04!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, as the title says, there is a new and updated version of Ib!
From vgperson's tumblr:
"Over a year after the release of version 1.02 (and a little less than a year after the release of my translation), Ib has been updated to version 1.04. (1.03 was an intermediate version: 1.02 with smaller filesize, and it was only available on compilation CDs and stuff.)
I may post a complete list of changes later, but here are the big ones:
- The music is compressed, so the filesize is smaller. (About time.)
- There are new paintings and conversations to find in old areas.
- A new branch is available that leads to two new endings.
- After any good ending (read: Ib escapes), you can start the game over, keeping track of your endings and such.
- After you beat the game once and continue as mentioned above

Please stop showing up in my More Like This / More From deviantART when I first upload my artworks. I don't know how the heck dA thinks my work has anything to do with your equine cleavages and shapely buttasses.
In fact, I find you weird. I will never trust an animal who has opposable thumbs and who presumably has enough intelligence and co-ordination to drive my car.
My car also has a shapely buttass. It's a hatchback. You might actually like it. But you can't drive it. I won't let you. Because I don't trust you.
You and your thumbs.
So kindly stop populating my deviation pages with your tiny lingerie—or take to wearing saddles and go entertain at kids' parties where you belong. Either would do, really. Or both. Mostly both.
And if you can, please relay this message to the ridiculously skanky female superheroes in suggestive poses. They occasionally tend to sneak in on my pics, too. I'm trying to run a suitable-for-all-ages

No one sits with him, he doesn't fit in,
But we feel like we do when we make fun of him.
Cause you want to belong, do you go along?
Cause his pain is the price paid for you to belong.
It's not like you hate him or want him to die,
But maybe he goes home and thinks suicide.
Or he comes back to school with a gun at his side,
And a kindness from you might have saved his life.
Heroes are made when you make a choice...
You could be a hero - heroes do what's right!
You could be a hero - you might save a life!
You could be a hero- you could join the fight!
For what's right, for what's right, for what's right!
No one talks to her, she feels so alone.
She's in too much pain to survive on her own.
The hurt she can't handle overflows to a knife,
She writes on her arm and wants to give up her life.
Each day she goes on is a day that she's brave,
Fighting the lie that giving up is the way.
Each moment of courage her on

as always, this review is chock full of them, so if you haven't seen the episode yet, save the review for after you see it… AND YOU WILL WANT TO SEE IT!
Wow, that is all I can say! For someone not very partial to the new cast, and felt like the storyline was dragging, this episode completely caught me off guard! When they said, "the most emotional episode yet," they meant it! I was literally bawling! And what a great title for the episode, double meaning that I did NOT expect. I never thought I'd say this but… with this episode, the new cast is growing on me (it only took them 18 episodes )
Now with all that being said…
The episode opens, much like many of the other episodes regarding the new New Directions, that in all honesty, left me with that cheated feeling again. I felt like after the last episode, they'd pick it up. But the first couple of scenes weren't giving me much hope, didn't want to judg
The Art of Critique: give and accept feedbackThere is a huge part of making art that consists on improving your art. And one way of improving your art skills and understanding is through critique people would give you. This article is about understanding the notion of critique in order to make it the most efficient possible for you and for everyone.The Art of Critique: give and accept feedback7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Everything you will find here was probably said a hundred times before. But I am sure that many of us still are trying to find the right pattern to follow in terms of critique, and it isn't easy.
Let's start with....
At some point we all have to deal with the "wow, awesome!" comments. "wow, awesome!" is not a critique. It is a form of feedback, communication, self-expression, - a way to tell the world "I like this piece, and I want you to know it, I want the artist to be informed, I want to leave my word on this piece." Don't underestimate the power of "wow, awesome!" though, it is definitely not pointless and not to be considered as spam nor igno
