and then this...
If you have the guts I didn't, to watch the whole video,
then even if you stopped halfway, you'll see the eyes of a raccoon dog, skinned alive, stare into the camera, while clinging to its hopeless life.
For clarification, I am not in anyway a supporter nor am I affiliated with PETA.
So if PETA is another concern and problem, then it's just another one we'll have to fix.
And yes, this specific one is staged, but my point isn't that this is how people skin animals, it's that these animals are dying REGARDLESS of the cause and reason behind it.
I'm not one of those spokespersons; who comes to your school or town, to make you sit as I try to make a serious topic into something fun and enjoyable to my audience.

Just wondering...I don't want to sound like 'that guy' but...Just wondering...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since when is mis-gendering someone an insult?
I mean honestly.
So what if someone accidentally calls you a male or female pronoun if you're the opposite. Unless they do it on purpose I don't see a point in getting all pissed off about it.
Save yourself the grief and just deal with it. You're on the internet and chances are 99% of the time people commenting or talking to you/about you won't know you're gender unless you tell them.
Nowadays it seems gender roles are taken SO seriously that it's like criminal if you make a mistake about it. You get your head snapped off at the neck or an army of angry people plaguing you calling you a homophobic dick or some other random gender-hating label.
To be honest I don't care if you call me he, she, him, her, his, hers, lamp, llama, shark, pinto bean, or whatever.
My gender is NOT that important. It's what I am, not who I am and to be honest I

What do your favorite works of art say about you? Have you ever thought about it?
I'm featuring 7 deviations that blow me away, that I turn to for my own inspiration. Each one tells a story to which I can relate. A piece of my own story is echoed in each image.
What's your story through art? Create a journal with 5-7 of your favorite deviations that best represent you, and link me!
I love rain. I love the way it washes away sorrow and leaves your soul open for the sunlight.
This image reminds me of me because of the feeling of pain, of being hit with a constant barrage of garbage in my life that I don't need or deserve. You can avoid a lot of it, but sometimes it comes up and strikes you on the chin, reminding you to pay your dues.

Stop SOPA Blackout JournalDo you care about your rights?Stop SOPA Blackout Journal4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I care about your rights. SOPA is an infringement upon our rights. Do you want the government controlling which websites it approves the use of? Our freedoms for thought and free speech need to be protected for free internet. In protest, blackout your pages, go silent, spread the word. Petition sites you care about to do the same.
Who does SOPA effect?
Everyone who uses the internet. Facebook, Twitter, social networking sites which cannot control the content posted by it's users and will be held responsible for it. This is forced censorship. This will not stop piracy. This will effect law abiding citizens. It does not protect our rights, it treads on it, spits on it, and throws our rights out the window at 100mph.

If I could wish anyone anything this Holiday season it would be happiness, love, and a moment of clarity.
There has been so much going on in this world that seems to have put either hostility or pain onto the shoulders of people around the world. Many are still suffering and they all need to know that regardless of how much they feel it — They are never alone.
I want to wish all of you; even those I do not know as well as I could or should, a happy, healthy, and peaceful holiday.
I want you to remember that you are loved.
I want you to know you are not alone.
I want you to understand that you are brave, smart, strong, and every breath you take is a gift.
You are a gift.

We see them everywhere, popping up in many shapes, sizes , and flavors.The Species Craze: A talk by Fenny1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There has been a great amount of reaction for it, so - I feel like I should put my two cents into it.
Let's start out by explaining my Background.
I am a writer and I am a biologist. I have written 2 complete novels (still in the editing process and hoping to be published one day) and I am a sophmore in college. I have taken classes on anatomy, physiology, ecology, general biology, microbiology, chemistry and many others.
Why does this matter? Well, I like to think I have a good idea of how to come up with a creature that makes sense on a biological level that will fit into its habitat and write up a good culture for them.
I have been doing designs and "closed speices" before it was "cool"

What the hell is up with all these young people becoming Satanists? [Please forgive that awful pun... |D]
I mean honestly... do you even know what a Satanist is?
What they do? What you're getting into?
This isn't just a 'walk in walk out' kind of thing...
What drives people to become Satanists? More so young people...
I mean really... What convinces you?
Are you trying to stick out, be different, be edgy?
Look, if you were BORN into the religion fine... but if you willingly, openly, and nonchalantly just walked into that religion I suggest you rethink what you're claiming to be.
Satanism isn't what they show you on TV with shows like 'Supernatural' where the demons are these hot men and all's well ends well, okay?
It's not that at all.
I'm all for free choice but when I see so many teenagers walking into a religion that
Tips on Improving Fast(er)If you feel like you're not improving, or improving little, this might help.Tips on Improving Fast(er)8 months ago in Personal More Like This
These are all based on personal experience, some might work for you, some might not ; v ;
Whether its step by step guides or video tutorials, seeing the process of another artist can help you develop your own.
You can implement it in your own style, experiment with it and build on what you've learnt, until it becomes part of your style and you don't even have to think about it anymore.
Heres some really good video tutorials on human anatomy and foreshortening.
I think a lot of people avoid foreshortening, or actually learning about how its supposed to be done but it actually makes your art instantly more dynamic and interesting.

SPECIES ARE AN ARTupdating this because of the large amount of hatred going onSPECIES ARE AN ART11 months ago in Personal More Like This
There are 2 sides to art
And society's side (aka other people's opinion)
In let's say, A painting, you have your focal point.. The part of the art piece that you are paying most attention to.
Then there are small little hidden parts or a larger faded part. You also have some sort of theme, a message. And then you have the decision for colors, what colors look nice together?? Hmmm... this neon red doesn't really look nice. How about some light pink with some bright orange!!! Yes perfect... Now I present it in an art show and hope for the approval of my peers, sempais, and advisers. Wow I hope they like it!
then you have
A painting that you are doing on your own. Only you are caring about it, this doesn't make you selfish! You start with a focal point... No no no! Lets get crazy.... I will add a dab of paint there... Mmmm.. How about all over the center. WHO CARES IF IT HAS A THEME~!

I might Sound Like A Dick For Saying ThisBut, I feel like sometimes Clocky is a little over sexualized.I might Sound Like A Dick For Saying This1 year ago in Personal More Like This
She's a female character, so I expected this- but that's not the only thing that I've came across lately. It's almost like- some people have made her seem defenseless and fragile.
Some things you might not know about clocky is she is flat chested, (I have no problem if ANYONE draws her with breasts, I don't count that as over-sexualization, it's just something I wanted to mention.) is relatively strong so she has some muscle, (sometimes she looks as thin as a stick? I'm not sure why) and she was sexually abused so she never really acts horny or suggestively flirtatious. She actually tends to cover up as much as she can because she's insecure.
Then again it's partly my fault, because I didn't let many people know. But it's kind of been bugging me lately. I don't know.

character design/personality tips!!!this is for cartooning, and stuff like that.character design/personality tips!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
ok so i decided to share some things that I've learned about creating characters that are original…
this will be a process/ step by step "tutorial", and for it ill take you through development of this character i made up a while ago but never posted lol.
1. think about the character's personality.
personality is like
the most important thing ever
the never-posted character's personality was
-quiet /// antisocial
-blindly follows orders // not very bright
-seems like a pushover but not afraid to defend himself
tips on personality:
- DONT make your character a mary sue. for a definition of a mary sue go here: http://fav.me/d399c5
- also, dont make your characters have no good qualities. they should be bad at some things and good at other things.
- dont make your character generic!!!
yay!! u have a personality…but no design to go with it. its time for the fun part!!!!
