When I'm looking through books in a brick and mortar store, I flip to the middle of a book for some reason and then put it on the shelf as if I ever had any intention of buying it (I don't know what compels me to buy a book anymore, to be honest). HOWEVER...
When I am here at deviantART, our supercool scrolling thumb feature allows me to see the first sentence of a story and make the determination on whether or not I want to continue reading. That said... I don't read much around here.
Boy, rhetoric is fun. We know why.
I don't judge a book by its cover but goddamn I will judge a story by its first line. It's called a "hook" for a reason. No one wants to read your story if your opening sentence is
She heard a bird chirp outside her window; slowly, she opened her eyes and yawned, the winged animal acting as her alarm clock.

Search for draw this again and you see a meme where deviants are showing their progress through the years. Examples:
Then there's a trend on YouTube where deviants are posting video blogs about their deviantART experiences. I recently caught this one by DomieNeek that I was charmed by. She makes great points, too!
In November we published a Journal on dt's Blog, very discreetly announcing that we've launched a set of API's (Application Programming Interfaces) so that developers out there could make Apps for deviantART.

1D Contest! Wooh!Okay guys, so I've decided I want to hold a contest for my fellow directioners. Now, before you say anything, please note that I LEGALLY took this idea from :iconShayHart: because I asked her. Now, my name is real Georgia but you may use Summer, my DA name/nickname if you would prefer. I'm happy with either.1D Contest! Wooh!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, the contest is for you to write a short story about me and Harry Styles. If you can't write then you may draw a picture of Harry and I instead. Now, you want to know the prize? Well...
I will pick the top three stories and top drawing (if there are any) to be in a ONE DIRECTION FANFICTION! Now, first place writer gets first choice of boy, top drawer gets second, second place writer gets third and so on. I get whatever is left over because I always find it easier to write stories if I am in it...I know how bad that sounds but it is true! If there are no drawings I will pick a fourth story
Good luck everyone!
The deadline is in two weeks (11th of August) But if p
very sad news everyone.this is the day we have all wished would never happened to this fandom. Next Monday is the day we wished would never come. Next Monday is going to be the worst day. We are all going to relive something that all of us have hoped would never happen again. So next Monday on nickelodeon at 5:00pm and then again for some reason at 7:00, DO NOT WATCH THE LAST AIRBENDER MOVIE AT ALL! Instead, why don't you watch regular show then adventure time on cartoon network at that time. Or better yet, why don't you get up from your chair at 5:00 pm next Monday and reply slam your head against the wall until all you can see is blackness. That would be better then going thru that again. Or maybe just watch regular show then adventure time on cartoon network, that maybe for the best.very sad news everyone.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

REAL CREATIVISM LOGA lot of people ask me what do i think when im drawing, whats your creative process, and what are the magical fairies you are thinking while you draw, about life, beauty and wisdom of the world.

The purpose of this journal its to let people know how we are all filled with doubts agony and stupid funny things while we draw. So you wont feel you are doing something wrong.
Will be cool if this became a spam, and people started to share in their journals the same way i did while you are at work.
Okay, lets star, first the setting, if you had seen the tv show 24, picture that way while im drawing, with several cameras on my sides, this will make the reading more funny, if you havent seen the show picture this sound each time you read time passes, while im drawing.

For those with issues installing UTAUs with Japanese file names (such as Kiaru, Ritsu, Teto, and such), just simply change your system locale to Japanese. There are many tutorials available everywhere to do this. For windows computers, I know the Microsoft technical help website actually has a page on how to do it, so I'd go with that. For mac's, I don't really know what to do, since I have a windows myself But search around! I'm sure you'll find a tutorial out there~
NOTE: This does not simply mean that your computer can type in Japanese. Please search up the words computer locale to further understand what the system locale is!

I Street Therefore I Am - 01"Defining Street Photography" what the heck does it even mean?!I Street Therefore I Am - 012 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Street Photography is about documenting 'reality' as it happens around us: On the street, in a pub, at the beach, malls...
Funny that this particular style of photography was popularized - or dare I say, 'conceived' by people who themselves
had a rather 'surrealist' outlook towards life - which kind of explains the irrational juxtapositions between the subject
and the environment often evidenced in modern Street Photography.
A Vidya Dāna Of Influence:
Or, 'How Surrealism and Street Photography Bounce Off Each Other.' A Sharing of knowledge:
Eugène Atget (February 12, 1857 – August 4, 1927). His photographs inspired many artists - surrealists especially.

AMBER SNIPPY'S FATE?I've had that dream again.AMBER SNIPPY'S FATE?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That strange place, so distant, yet so close to my heart. Buildings as tall as mountains.
Dead structures, watching with dead eyes. Empty, vast and endless honeycombs of stone and steel. Air filled with gray ashes, always fluttering from the cloudy sky.
The black vortex opens up in the sky, descending down to the city. The vortex spiral rips the city apart, bending the air itself, feasting on light, feasting on time.
There is a lonely figure standing in the street.
No matter how hard I try to make out his or her expression, I cannot. Is there no face there at all? Or perhaps there is a million human faces there, intertwined and flickering in unison, as bright as the light of ten thousand suns?
The being stares into the abyss of the vortex.
It takes another step towards it, into the horizon of nothingness, into a place where nothing can exist.
The stones of the roadway beneath its feet crumble and flutter in t
