Urgent help neededHi, this is Mark, Phil Jackson's brother.Urgent help needed3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you in the UK will have heard on the news these past two days, Phil has gone missing. No one has seen him since Wednesday last week and we are all extremely concerned for his wellbeing as he has never missed a family gathering, such as that over Easter.
More distressing is that the office complex he works out of was broken into on the evening of Wednesday 27th March, and there is a very real worry that those responsible may be involved in Phil's disappearance.
The police are of the mind that all of this may have something to do with Phil's online work, and that a cartoon or comic may have been motive for an unbalanced party to act against him.
CCTV in Phil's office captured a handful of images as the intruders entered from the service access: http://www.collectedcurios.com/CCVT_001.jpg http://www.collectedcurios.com/CCVT_002.jpg http://www.collectedcurios.com/CCVT_003.jpg

Time for some blind, fuming RAGEI've been storing this one up for a while. I realize here, I'm probably preaching to the choir but if I don't say this, I'm going to explode.

If anything, you people, the appreciators of art, can print this up and hand it to someone when you hear them say shit like this.Time for some blind, fuming RAGE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
(Note: "Asshole" is not just one person but a number of people who have said these things to me and other artists I know.)
Asshole: Art is NOT a job. It's just not. It doesn't involve manual labor, you get to sit on your ass all day, and most of you are even your own bosses! You don't have to deal with HALF the shit WE (who have REAL jobs) do. I bet you work like three hours a week, maybe. Don't even get me started on the idiots who sell those blank canvases and glued together furniture BS for like A JIZZLLION DOLLARS. You want to know what a real job is? Stand on your feet for twelve hours straight listening to people complain day in and day out. THAT is a job. Or how about sa

Originally by mosa, but even if her text is in a harsh "no more bullshit" -tone... it's all true.
Things you need to bear in mind when entering the commissions-game, whether as a seller or a buyer.
Have you ever commissioned an artist who has taken forever on your work, only to tell you when you ask that they have art block and just can't do it right now (or ever), and its been weeks or even months since they've done any of their owed work at all?
And of course, since you yourself are not a commission artist and have little knowledge into how the artist mind works, you accept it because, hey, everyone has production problems at some point, right?
Or you accept the re

Alright everyone! You wanna know how to become popular on deviantART? Then follow these easy steps and you'll reach popularity in no time!
Change your usernameMake a new account
Whoops, sorry. I thought deviantART had a username-change system, but it doesn't. Looks like you'll have to start over and make a new account! Transfer your faves and the people you watch, because you need a good username if you want to be taken seriously here, and making a new account is the only option for now.
Make sure not to choose the name of an anime character and a bunch of random numbers as your username (naruto12345), choose one that's easy to remember and defines your person. Because seriously, who chooses a random word and random numbers as their username?
Step 2: Start making art

Titillation vs. SexismBoobs.Titillation vs. Sexism1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Guys are fascinated by them.
Through single-digit ages, they find the very concept of them hilarious, and when puberty kicks in the mere thought of lady-lumps generally causes some movement in the trouser department. These weak-willed creatures will follow them anywhere and they will do almost anything if it means simply being permitted to gaze upon them for a few moments more.
The entertainment industries, from the big movie makers to the lowly art whores (like me) know this, and have played upon it for years in order to separate males from their money. As a result, mass media is awash with the female form in all manner of provocative poses and dress.
Many women are fed up with this, but is the whole thing “sexist”?
Well, it’s impossible and indeed wrong to say a whole industry is one thing or another. Ultimately it’s all one, big, dumb organism that simply moves with the cultural winds. It perpetuates what sustains it. It’s only when you break it
They careWanna kill yourself? Imagine this. You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time. A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up." Your dad runs to your room.

Tips for smooth clean line artHi,Tips for smooth clean line art3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Is your line art shaky, wobbly, sloppy, fat, uneven or pixelated? The subject of clean line art comes up a lot so I've gathered together a number of tips from various DA members that may help you improve your line art. Some of the techniques described below may contradict other techniques described below so you may want to experiment and decide what works best for you. Most of these assume that you have a digital tablet. (Make sure your tablet drivers have been installed correctly. If your cursor is behaving erratically it may indicate a problem with your tablet or drivers.) Some posts have been edited for brevity or spelling:
"I developed my own technique. And it works quite well for me. It raised my Lineart cleanliness from 24% to 98%, yeah, really. Here is how I do it digitally when I'm not using a traditional sketch:
First a rough sketch, and I isolate it in its own layer then set its opacity to 50 or something near that value.
Then on the second layer

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;

I know it must be pretty boring still watching me with how friggin inactive I've been here.
A lot has been going on. I lot of just life butting into my .. life, I guess x3
I've been having a lot of miscommunications with my employers so I had to take some time away from the job, in that time I got another job that only takes up two days of my week. And I hope to arrange to get part time with my old job.
That's just outside of home.
At home I've been having a lot of troubles with my few computers.
Which unfortunately affects my art a little since I personally love to submit digital artwork here. But that's alright, I have a lot of traditional drawings and sketches backed up for a free day where I can just do a massive upload xDD Or just slowly upload everyday or something xDD
I really do have to say thank you to some people like :iconj-blak:, :icontheartisticpony:, :iconpenguin598:, :iconcarameliggy: and :icongagaman92: for sticking around and mess

I also remember another time when I did ask for a trade
in her profile around the same period of time
And I got a streight forward

Then I asked why she had the status set on "ask" instead of "closed"
and she simply said that they were like that just in case a super
talented awesome artist would pass that wants a trade.
So I was just called untalented and unimportant?!
well at least she was honest..
I got so pissed.

Chapter 9 part one. shadow of the day.I glanced up with an uncanny migraine as the light shined in from above as if it scorched my eyes as It left me in a lot of pain, as I slowly managed to find the strength to get back up and onto my feet, I blinked a few times inquiring to where I was, as it slowly returned to me in a delicate fashion as I found it difficult to see straight even when concentrating, I felt sore and in pain as my wounds were still seemingly fresh, no wonder they said I needed my sleep, I glanced over my shoulder for a brief moment I saw something lingering in the darkness as I saw two eyes staring at me from the shadow as I felt my heart beat faster and faster as it felt like this shadow approached me, as I felt a chill creep down my spine as I raced upstairs as it vanished to nothing, I felt my heart race of what nightmare like beast haunted the darkness like a hound in the night, as I couldn't relax, I glanced to the three of them as my eyes stun badly from the light, I thought that beast could of beenChapter 9 part one. shadow of the day.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
