Hey if you had the ears that I had, then I would sing you a song from my heart but I wonder if you'd hear it...
You start to notice alot of things in high school. Like the same group of students who share common personalities hang out with one another and those same group of students who you feel might have made the world a better place if they just dropped dead. I kind of expected high school to be like that though. I've never entirely fitted in with the masses. I'm my own kind of "outcast": not to far in, not to far out. I'm sure there are people who feel the same way. Like Jessica. She's in a simialir possition as me. That's probably why we get along so well. The teachers are what they should be. Demanding, wise, and knowledgeable. Despite the actual school ciriculum, everything seems to be made of lies. The sm

Honestly don't know why I'm writing this butI've been getting a few messages and comments asking me for some tips and advice, and to be honest, I don't know why anyone would be asking me! I'm far from the best on here, there are some real breathtaking people on here who are 800 times better than me that they should be going to for advice, but I guess I can share a few of my personal tips to see if they help anyone.Honestly don't know why I'm writing this but3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. I always start out from the eyes, the nose, mouth then everything comes after, it's easier for me so the main focus point is done and I can relax with the rest of it, since the face is the most important part usually.
2. Never put your bare fingertips on the paper, especially on Bristol, it can easily leave greasemarks that will become a real pain when you want to shade in later, it'll leave a dark area when you blend it. Always keep a tissue on the paper when you rest your hand whilst drawing.
3. I'm sure most people know this but it's always the best to start out dark when you shade. if you go from light to dark

Procrastinating ...So i had this thought earlier...Procrastinating ...3 months ago in Personal More Like This
What if you had a rash in your nostrils, and then whenever you itched it, people always thought you were picking your nose... But then you would have to choose whether you'd tell them about your rash, ooorrr if you'd tell them that you are indeed picking your nose... O_o
I know a rash might not be embarrassing, but what if the reason it was there WAS embarrassing? What if you got the rash from sticking a muffin crumb up your nose, but then you found out you were allergic to muffins? (and don't think that shoving a muffin crumb is something you'd never do. That's what I said. ...And I have done it.)
What would you do?? O.O
Okay, so I have something to ask you guys.
Am I the only one who brings my laptop to the bathroom with me?
I was really getting into my schoolwork, but then I had to pee. Really bad. And I mean baaaaaadddd.

It takes me a while to put these together and it's a bit of a tedious process, so if you commented on my other journal to be featured, please take a look at everyone else's work too. After all, it's only fair that way and if you don't, it's just a little selfish and your conscience will bug you . So yah, share the love, guys!

10 Simple Tips for Getting Your Art Accepted QUICKIt's troublesome for all of us when we have to ask you questions and, require you to withdraw and resubmit your deviation for one reason or another. Well, this document is designed to help prevent that so we can all have a nicer day!10 Simple Tips for Getting Your Art Accepted QUICK1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. All Members:
- When you upload your art to dA, select the proper category. ex. When a member submits a drawing to our Digital Art folder, but we see that it's in dA's Traditional Art category, we will ALWAYS question that.
2. Digital and Traditional Artists:
- List the media/tools/programs and reference image links you used to create your art in your description. This is a practice of Pros, and it helps us to ascertain that your art is submitted to the proper folder.
- If your art is a photograph, and you did any editing besides tweaking, or BW/Sepia conversion then we will probably consider it a photo-manipulation. This includes selective de-coloration. Submit it to our Digital Art folder.
Epilepsy Awareness Day March 26th 2013The Purple TruthEpilepsy Awareness Day March 26th 20131 year ago in Art Features More Like This
March 26, known to the epileptic community as Purple Day, is a day to promote understanding and teach others the signs of epilepsy and seizures. As one of the most common neurological conditions in the world, directly affecting 65 million people globally, and with 1 out of 10 people having suffered a seizure in their lifetime, this condition has a real presence in our lives. What is epilepsy though?
Epilepsy is defined as a medical condition that produces seizures affecting a variety of mental and physical functions. Normal brain function is made possible by millions of tiny electrical charges passing between nerve cells in the brain and to all parts of the body. When someone has epilepsy, this normal pattern may be interrupted by intermittent bursts of electrical energy that are much more intense than usual.
A seizure, a symptom of epilepsy, occurs when a brief, strong sur

Skat of Foxes Card GameSkat of Foxes Card Game4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before the reading, look here first: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skat_(card_game)
skat - a popular card game in germany. yes, sKat. (speak "skaaht" ) - NO animal droppings. (which is scat). savvy? (now, if i find any other comment that is about animal droppings, i will go crying.) - please, show me some level... -.-
Recently, a card game was found in an old antiquarian bookshop...an utterly bizarre card game.
It was called "Skat of Foxes" - and it is presumed that it was printed during the victorian era in london. And. It once belonged to a very popular magican...
So, a pack of cards...a quite ordinary not really noteworthy pack of cards, you could say. Well...you couldn´t be more wrong then.
Because this game is one to play with caution. Great caution. These cards are dangerous...very dangerous...
Foxes, everywhere. You will search the heart without success - foxes in mouse leaping pose are taking its place.
Fox eyes are staring on these cards. Staring
The real story behind devART :t::h::e: :f::a::i::r::y: :t::a::l::e:The real story behind devART11 years ago in Personal More Like This
The story of deviantART, as most know it, goes like this. Once upon a time the yellow alien :jark: and a pug were sitting around thinking, hey it would be great to create a massive online art community wouldn't it? And then the yellow alien went off and wrote thousands of lines of alien code, and the pug ran around telling all his friends about this great new art site they had to check out. And when the alien was done coding, he told all his alien friends to come too! Once they'd all arrived, this heavenly new community came about and we all lived happily ever after. Until people started "first posting" and what not. But that's another story.
But not quite.
Actually, there was a lot more to it that couldn't be discussed until now. Like the fact that there were always three deviantART co-founders, not two. That deviantART was wholly owned by DMusic Network, LLC, and then Lynx Technology Group,
