I Don't Even Know What to Say About ThisI was just linked to Wolf Haven Spirit of the Past, a site that sells "house raised, quality wolves" in the state of Texas (where, if I am not mistaken, they are illegal to own). If you thought my last blog was amusing check out some of these quotes, direct from their page:I Don't Even Know What to Say About This5 years ago in Personal More Like This
The wolf is the lion of the North. They are called that because they are descendants from the same lineage as lions.
They also have a cat-like bone structure. They can collapse and dislocate their joints.
A full wolf will not have green or blue eyes, but like the lion only brown.
When you hear of a wolf being agressive, it is more than likely mixed with a dog. When you mix a wolf with a dog you pass on the agressive traits, brain imbalance and the health problems of a dogs.
They make good pets for even truck drivers!

Artist Identity and Art’s Purpose
A new movie, while only mildly stirring contreversy here in the USA, is causing quite an uproar in England. Anonymous is a big budget Molotov cocktail of a cultural provocation hurled by the producer-director of Godzilla and 2012, Roland Emmerich. He brings the same subtle and nuanced touch he exercised in those films to his latest film, in which he takes up the scorchingly contentious (if little known outside college literature departments) debate ongoing between the “Stratfordians” (those who believe the Shakespeare plays were written by the late-16th Century actor named Shakespeare) and the “Oxfordians” (those who believe the Shakespeare plays were written by Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford
Art theft is not a crime - say NO to copyrightToday, a DD was awarded to a nice acrylic painting (below left) which was painted from my photo (below right) -Art theft is not a crime - say NO to copyright2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just about the only thing I don't like about is the strong cyan tint, which seems to be more associated with the photo of the painting rather than then painting itself. Overall it's definitely one of the best derivative works I've yet to see based on my photos. I really enjoyed exploring how all the little details differed between the two.
Rpriet1 did not ask for my permission, or inform me of using my photo. A DA gallery moderator just messaged to ask whether I would like the deviation removed, and the DD revoked. I think most artists who've had their work "stolen" would be outraged, but for me the answer was a very unambiguous no. This is a complicated issue, and I think that the vast majority of the readers will disagree with me at this point, so let me explain my position carefully.
The concept of intellectual property, the way it ex

"You're" is different from "Your" ...Here's a trick if you are having a hard time remembering: Apostrophes ( ' ) mean that you are smashing two words together. "You are" turns into "You're". ...Unless it's at the end of a name or noun and coupled with an "s". That is not mashing two words together, as far as I know.
"There" is different from "Their" is different from "They're" ...Here's a trick if you're having a hard time remembering: "There" has the word "here" in it, so you can remember that it is referring to a place. And then there is the apostrophe thing I mentioned in the previous point.
"To" is different from "Two" is different from "Too" Here's a trick if you're having a hard time remembering: "2" has a "W" (double-"U") in it. And maybe the phrase "Toto too"

The thing I am most often bombarded with questions about. There are some important things to remember about these;
You MUST be a premium member on dA to use the code.
You must create the image at the size it will appear in the module, these images do not tile, therefore it is best to create a static image with as small a file size as possible so that it does not take too long to load.

The goal is to complete the list, but 52 is a lot. So do as many as you can.
You DO NOT have to do the list in order. Please feel free to skip around.
Please submit your project entries to the 52 Week Project Folder.
I know time is an issue for most people, as it is for me.
These entries do NOT have to be epic masterpieces; sketches are acceptable though finished work is always proffered.
You may NOT change a theme from the list and submit it to the project folder.
Anything submitted to the project folder needs to be labeled in some way to indicate its part of the project.
it could be as simple as numbering the piece or saying "Pr
Went Undercover as a Student at a UniversitySorry for lack of updates, I have been away for a bit. But now I am back to tell more stories and upload more art. Anyway. Sometimes Ry can be a troll (Just sometimes). And I did exactly that last week actually. I pulled off a 21 Jump Street. Right, so I was in Melbourne for a convention and I also stayed longer for a few days to hang out with friends. The night before convention, my friend Alice (Who is a core member of the Japan Club) invited me to visit her University at RMIT for a Japanese movie night as part of her Japan Club's activity. At first I was a bit unsure whether I should go or not since I am not a member of the club or the Uni. But I do like to watch Japanese movies, so I went! :iconmingplz:Went Undercover as a Student at a University8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Once again I've climbed through a mountain of other deviations in search of stuff I want to feature. I shall not speak of nudes and ponies because both have made it into my feature. I will never feature pony nudes, or nude ponies. That is just... ew for me.
Instead, I will make a mention of a sunflower with rather large tits, and women with breast absorbing powers...
You just can't unsee things.
But onto art. Beautiful wonderful art. Art that I spent from last Sunday to the very last second of last night collecting, haha. I swear, as a procrastinator I shouldn't do this.

Journey Collab! By Me!Guess what I wanna do.....Journey Collab! By Me!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
That's right! A giant, Journey collab! I want to get as many Journey OC's from as many people as I can on this sight, and put them all together in a giant deviation! It will be a VERY long time, due to collecting information, and the actual drawing of the characters.
Rules and info:
ONE OC PER PERSON. I know this may be hard for some of you, but I want you to give me your single, most loved character.
REF SHEETS. Ref sheets are very important, I do not want to make a mistake. Even though I may have drawn your characters before, I still want to get all of the info together in one place as a reference.
NEW AND DEVELOPING OCs. If you don't want to feel left out but don't have an OC yet, please let me know you are working on it and will get to me soon. Please send me a note if you would like me to design one for you, or even put a character that I designed for you already in the collab.
MUST BE IN COLOR! Yes! This collab is going to be in color, but no shading. I

Body-Shaming and Double Standards (mini-rant) I just saw this picture on Facebook that said "Curves: Because nobody wants to snuggle with sticks."Body-Shaming and Double Standards (mini-rant)7 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is just one example of something I've been seeing a lot lately that's kind of been getting to me.
WHY IS THERE SO MUCH SKINNY-SHAMING THESE DAYS?
Seriously, it's EXACTLY as bad as "fat-shaming." Why do people think it's okay to make ANYONE feel bad about their bodies, whether they're considered skinny or fat?
If someone posted something that said larger people were gross or unattractive, a ton of people would get mad at them and say fat-shaming is not okay and whatnot. The reason for this is simply two words: DOUBLE STANDARDS.
I'm a bit underweight, and here's a confession: I really wish I were more curvy. Yet the majority of people, specifically people on Facebook, think that it's totally okay to post things that make people like me feel self-conscious about their weight. But nooo, if

So giving out one year premium-ship make sense! By our generous contributor :iconandronicusvii: (NEW DEADLINE: 28/02-13)
NOTE: You don't have to be an member of the group to join this contest!
To make this clear, this is a CREATIVITY contest! NOT a drawing contest! That means it's about the concept/design of the character, not the quality of the drawing. With other words: Sketches, line-art, drawings etc. are allowed! BUT have to be a full body drawing! Note: each post you send have to be a "new character" on each one, so if you are drawing the same character over and over again, please post it on one and same image or at least write in the title (that it's the same character example: Aragon, concept 2) and link to the other drawing that is related to it x)
