Pet peeve 2I've seen this happen more than once. "This reminds me of pokemon. This reminds me of Okami. This reminds me of your ass."Pet peeve 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seriously, what do you think you achieve with a comment like that? Is the artist supposed to feel better that his/her oc looks like the fandom you're at the moment fapping to? Most of the artists I know want to be recognized for their own characters and ideas, and most of the time they haven't even thought - or better yet, heard - at all of that thing when the picture was created.
"This reminds me of--" is not a compliment. It's not a critique. It gives nothing new, but it makes you look like a snob who can't accept that when there is billions and trillions of people maybe might think of same kind of idea what someone else thought. If, as a comment, it's something, it's actually an insult of someone's imagination. Or, maybe, the person was actually inspirated about something. Let's say, he was inspirated by some pokemon. He liked the design and wanted

Lets just say that now that I will have to retreat from my usual drawings for a little while, I have stored up some works I can post here when this place feels more dead than it should feel! ;D I started making Characters ref sheets so we will be seeing that more and I have finished

Success summer and spider offeringsSo I have finally done with my studies, which were “Vocational Qualification in Business and Administration” (That the translator gave me from word “Merkonomin tutkinto”). It was quite hard run, I worked so hard that I even almost got a peptic ulcer (that was painful). But now all that is over and I got good grades and 2 stipends. I even most likely will get a job after summer. Success.Success summer and spider offerings8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now I can have a nice summer vacation and finally start to draw moar by myself. And I also noticed that I can feed the spiders which enter my home to my geckos. But luckily I just got warnings here that they may have parasites. Thanks for telling! For now on, I sacrifice spiders to the ants.
Have a juicy summer

Use your art to help spread awareness for this Vulnerable Species
The Polar Bear, the ice bear, an apex predator of the north arctic circle. The largest of all bear species, this bear is a mighty carnivore. But as the ice the bears so desperately depend on melts at an alarming rate, disaster spells out in the murky water. Rising temperatures cause ice to melt, diminishing the bear's home and chances at catching prey. When the ice melts completely, polar bears will meet extinction below the freezing waters. Their population number ranges between 25,000-20,000 distributed among the nineteen subspecies.
What is International Polar Bear Day?
International Polar Bear Day(IPBD) is day to celebrate and spread awareness for the Arctic's Polar Bear
Our goal is to fill DeviantArt with Polar Bear themed art on February 27th

Today we have an interview with the amazing Grypwolf, a twenty-three-year-old digital artist from Finland! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!
Tell us a bit about your art and yourself as an artist. How long have you been doing art? What kind of art do you do?
Hi! My name is Jonna and I am a 23 years old digital artist from northern Finland. My mom says that I was born with the urge to draw and create stuff with my hands. As soon as I first time grabbed the pen in my hand, she had to cover our house with old newspapers - every single day, before I learned how to stay on paper and not to draw on everything I saw. But I indeed loved drawing and I still do. Of course when I still was a young, there was no computers and "digital art", so I started with traditional. My favorite medium had to be just a regular pencil or cheap markers. Oh that joy when every single Christ

SHARKNADOAHHHHH WHAT AM I WATCHINGSHARKNADO1 year ago in Personal More Like This
IT'S SO AWFUL I'M LAUGHING
and as a shark supporter i must say sharks do not jump into your boat, leap out into the air ten feet, or land on the top of your car and rip open the metal on the roof just to get in and take a bite out of you.
and they will not survive if a tornado picks them up out of the streets [yes, there were sharks swimming out in the streets and on top of buildings for no reason] and whips them around in an endless vortex of oxygen, not water
and sharks usually die in fresh water, like the fresh water they all swam around in to get inland so far that they probably made it to vegas before the hurricane ended [yes, it was a hurricane. and it went so far STARTING FROM CALIFORNIA inland you couldn't drive away from it unless you lived in michigan or something, but it's okay because the tornado at the end stayed in the exact same spot the entire time anyway]
and if you are falling out of a helicopter because your foot slipped w

Intro: Read it or Leave it
Happy New Year, everyone! 2013 has truly been one of the greatest of my life, and it wouldn't nearly have been as fantastic without you all. Whether you're a long time friend, a new watcher, or simply a passerby, I want to thank each of you from the bottom of my heart. You all mean more to me than I can express in words.
New Year's seems like a perfect holiday to celebrate with you all, because really, all the other holidays only celebrate a fraction of my love and gratitude for your company and support. And what better way to celebrate than to hold my first contest? I have literally been planning this since July, and I am so incredibly excited to finally launch it!
General Rules and Pointers
As you can tell, this is something of an intricate mega-contest. Fear not, I will guide you all through!
This contest runs from January 1st, 2014 to January 1st, 2015!

ahh so many things to say!
I first didn't wanted to join Deviantart, in fact I never was confident enough to show my art to so many people, specially back then, but all because this guy: :iconkoalla:, who forced me to join it (he basically created it for me, like "HERE IS YOURS USE IT D<") I'm here and in love with this place lol
I first started with drawings of humans, and stuff... but so many things happen since then, I quit art for about one year or so, and after this hiatus I started to paint only the things I really liked, mostly animulz hahah
here's the last evidence of my human artz:
jesus christ this is ugly lol
and this is one the few pics I made after starting get out this hiatus thing, it was a school one:
I never imagined that there was animal artists before to tell the truth... I found them here, and got extremely happy and surprised 'cause when I was younger, I thought only I liked to draw animals in such way, all t

My goal is to stream 24 hours straight next week. I will start by drawing something, but after that I will play The Last of Us. Yes, the whole game. I will get good quality webcam to take video of my television, but it won't be HD quality. I hope it will be good enough! I don't have the money or resources to catch the game to my computer from PS3 so you just need to accept this solution, sorry. :'D
STREAM WILL BE HOLD BETWEEN 25th and 26th of February, so one week from now.
Schedule will be something like this (GMT +2):
Tuesday February 25th
1 PM - Stream starts + drawing
4:15-4:45 PM - Break, I will be eating something
5 PM - The Last of Us gameplay starts
There will be couple of breaks.
I will be talking with mic while playing the game (so you can hear my all curses), otherwise there might be just music.
After finishing the game I will continue drawing something. I have been thinking about playing DLC after the main game, but I am not sure i
