This Saturday (check your local listings) here in the U.S., YOUNG JUSTICE: INVASION returns once more to Cartoon Network. With all the drama this well-made series has had to suffer behind the scenes, it would be no wonder if the fans have long since deserted it. It was never fair. It was never respectful. But it was also never within the control of Warner Bros Animation. C'est la vie. So, if you're still interested in the adventures of our Team of young and just heroes, please do tune in again, and settle back for the fun.
YJ Legacy-Todays the Day-Part 1As the sun went down on the streets of Gotham, the criminals of the night came out to play. At the Gotham academy,The Joker, with the smile just like the barrel of a gun, stepped out of the principal's office. He was wearing his classic stripped purple suit, with wliting old flower,his small,light green bow tie,his blood stained orange, six buttoned shirt. and his shiney black shoes. He looked from side to keeping an eye out for the bat. He poked his head back in the room and Harley was drawing a smile on the Principal's face.YJ Legacy-Todays the Day-Part 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Get back here Harley." He snapped
She turned to face, still holding one of the principal's fingers. She did what she was told and walked out as quietly as she could. Although it didn't help, after all, she was wearing heavy dark red and black go-go boots, and her heavy breathing didn't help because she was wearing her red and black corset, that nearly everytime she wore it, she couldn't breathe. But she didn't seem to care, if it made her 'Puddin' happy, then it
RetardA couple of people (literally only two, but it's a matter worth mentioning) emailed me after they had read the most recent Sequential Art strip, in which the fictitious element “Retardium” is mentioned. Both messages voiced disapproval at my using the word “Retard” due to its slang referencing of the mentally disabled.Retard1 year ago in Personal More Like This
That interpretation of the word, in my eyes, is outdated.
Used in describing a mentally disabled individual, “retard” is a slur, and (as with any slur) anyone who says it in that context deserves a sharp blow to the head. However, used to describe a “wilfully ignorant, able-bodied idiot”, I think “retard” is perfectly acceptable. I’ll wager that everyone reading this knows someone that can accurately be described as a "f**king retard", none of whom are disabled in the slightest, nor in using the word is a mentally disabled person even thought of.
I’ve not heard “retard” used to des

Pokemon Paperchildren Challenge!THE CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED!!!Pokemon Paperchildren Challenge!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR INTEREST AND TO THOSE TAKING PART!!
This is a challenge open to anyone of whatever age, skill or style. The goal is to make a pokedex entirely of Pokemon paperchildren! Or Papermon for short.
We'll be doing the first 151 Pokemon to start with! With everyone's ideas combined, it would really make a fun and original pokedex created by several Deviant artists and a huge achievement for those who participate. There are a lot of Pokemon so the more artists working together; the better! If you'd like to join PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BELOW!
WHAT IS A PAPERCHILD?
A paperchild is a cut out of a character or monster etc that you have drawn and coloured, usually by hand, and is no bigger than your hand (normally!). Many Deviant artists have made them to look as though they're interacting with how you hold them or the environment around them, making it fun to come up with poses to draw them in!
Here are some examples:
talent follow upso after a great many debates, here is what i am seeing.talent follow up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
there are 4 types of people responding.
1. the hard working artist agrees, they understand the time they have put into it, and in turn they are seeing the improvement they desire. they study the right things, like life, to understand how things work. they fight being completely self indulgent 100% of the time so they can better learn the skills they need.
2. the casual artist who doesnt really agree because they see somebody better, they are happy with what they can do and know they can be better, but they compare themselves to others too often.
3. the lazy fuck that thinks they must not be talented because they dont put in much time. and since they are so frustrated with seeing how great others are, they must not be talented while the other person is.
4. the people who see some little kid copy a drawing and imagine that they must be some kind of naturally born incredible artist. most of these people arent much beyond a part time
Boobs and ButtsHonestly, I am getting so tired of seeing so many stupid sexy pictures/paintings/drawings of girls. It seems like most men just learn to draw so they can draw boobs and butts. Can you not be more creative? Can you not draw an audience without it?Boobs and Butts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Call me old fashioned, but we should have a little more tact in our art. Sex sells, but it's cop out.
*Update* I just read this article: http://7nights.tumblr.com/post/49375174755/feminism-in-video-games and I think it has some very relevant points. Good read!
An attempt to write poetryIf I was gone.....An attempt to write poetry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Would you cry?
Would you laugh?
Would you die?
If I disappeared into the ends of the Earth.....
Would you bare?
Would you stare?
Or even care?
If I killed someone.....
Would you see?
Would you kill me?
Would you leave?
If I were to say goodbye.....
Would you run?
Would you search for me?
Would you become a nun?
I left the world since no one cared
Or ever shared
And even loved me....
So I left this to you all...
So don't cry about it all...
It was ALL your fault I am gone...

An Open Letter to DC ComicsSo: I recently sent DC Comics a somewhat, er, lengthy note outlining my current dissatisfaction (to put it mildly) with their product. I've semi-randomly decided I should post it to the Interwebz somewhere, and since I don't have a proper blog, I figured it'd have to be here. I've edited it a bit for length. If anyone actually reads this (ha! like that'll happen) and is curious to see the whole thing, drop me a line.An Open Letter to DC Comics2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am no longer buying DC comics.
There are several reasons for this. In part, I'm unhappy with DC's creative direction. I was not happy with the loss of the marriage of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, or with the downplaying of Lois' importance to the Superman mythos. Lois is Clark's equal, every bit as smart and heroic and psychologically strong. She is not and never was an impediment or a 'trophy wife'. I was not happy the brutal injury of Bette Kane to provide angst and motivation for the heroine in the otherwise fine Batwoman title (a case of 'women in refrigerators'). I

Once again, deviantART has answered the call to be a major sponsor in transforming Artists' Alley at Comic-Con International San Diego a chalice for the arts—bigger, but better, smarter, more informative, more connective and more dedicated than ever to the needs and desires of the artists who daily re-imagine and reshape our reality and dreams for the better.
If you are among the privileged ticket holders who braved the storms and seas to reach the core of the labyrinth, come to Artists' Alley, the artists’ oasis that is the liberated territory occupied and administered by deviantART and experience the rush from being washed in today’s most creative art flowing from the heart of our world.

Silver Age BatgirlFinally finished! I'm so happy! <3Silver Age Batgirl2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Galadriel (LOTR / Mirror dress)
My classic Batgirl suit and my Mera suit are finished so far. (except for a few little changes on Mera's sleeves). Don't worry, the yellow pouch will be exchanged with a red one (The yellow one is for my black suit). I just wanted to see how it looks complete. For Batgirl the only thing I have to do now is the cape. I am really looking forward to wear the whole costume!
I also finished Dove's base suit. I'll work on the accessoires in the following days and hope to finish it quickly. <3 I love Babs, Dawn and Mera sooooo much! I'm so inspired and motivated at the moment. Great start into 2013!

Louie Schwartzberg has made it his life’s mission to use his cinematic artistry to raise the alarm for public awareness of the dire situation we are facing in the possible collapse of our taken-for-granted natural resources. The “colony collapse disorder” currently decimating our honeybees was the prompt for Louie’s new movie, Wings of Life, which at it's essence, is a love story that feeds the earth.

Friday, Day 2 of Comic-ConComic-Con Veterans know there's an ebb and flow of patrons as the week progresses. While Preview Night can be frenzied with excitement for the con to come, there's also a notable saving of energy, knowing that the scant few hours of the first day will be nothing compared to the full-day smorgasbord for the remaining 4 days of the week. Thursday seems even more crazed by comparison, but of course, not all con-goers can get a weekday off. By Friday, electricity is buzzing in the air as cosplayers bust out their second outfit, comic-lovers bust out their second wallets, and area convenience stores are running dangerously low on comfy insoles and 5-Hour Energy Drinks.Friday, Day 2 of Comic-Con2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
