Grimoires and the Unholy Invitationals of the Damned
Halloween entertainment… or invitation to evil?
Grimoire 2 by AndrewDobell
We all know from the movies that a vampire can’t cross over the threshold into one’s home without being invited. And yet simply knowing that Dracula can be held at bay so easily makes issuing that invitation all the more irresistible. Could such things as supernatural beings actually be real? And could there be ways for we mere mortals to have the power to evoke them into existence or dismiss them as we might pleas

Great Portfolio is greater than College DiplomaGreat Portfolio is greater than College Degree.Great Portfolio is greater than College Diploma9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Of Course, I’m not exposed to every school in the world but from my general knowledge, personal experience and some basic logic: School is way too expensive to attend, especially if it takes you years later to get a decent job after graduation.
Here are three reasons why I’m not happy with most, not all, colleges in america. Especially for artists.
IT COSTS WAY TOO MUCH MONEY! I hear now that some art schools are charging $30,000 a year, for three years. That’s $90,000 of debt. Most professionals in my field of concept art don’t make that in a yearly salary. It’s more expensive than some medical schools and that’s becoming a doctor of some sort. So why is it so expensive? Doesn't matter, it just is.
Think about it this way. You are about to invest almost a tenth of a million dollars for the promise of being a capable person in the industry. But by the end, all you get is a piece of paper and a

The Kaaring List journal is not a complete list of registered quality blood horses. The Kaaring List is for us admins to update the ID Lists. Horse names are removed from the Kaaring List once the kaaring is noted on the ID lists.
As you read this you’ll notice certain changes have been made and things have been added. Please note: these changes are not retroactive for your kaaring level. This means that if your horse is already registered at a current level it stays that way (they never go down in levels) however you will have to take these changes into consideration for their next level. This means any art done even before the changes will still be held to these rules.

―Revan, to Lucien Draay
"Who I am is not important, my message is."
"Savior, conqueror, hero, villain. You are all things, Revan and yet you are nothing. In the end, you belong to neither the light nor the darkness. You will forever stand alone."
―Darth Malak to Revan
"Revan's strategies and tactics defeated the best of us. Even Mandalore himself was taken aback by the ferocity of his attacks, the tenacity of his defenses and the subtlety of his plans. Revan fought us to a standstill and then began pushing back. We didn't really have a chance."

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.

DA's Commission System and Minimum WageDA has recently announced a new portal for users to search through those offering commissions to find artists they want to support.DA's Commission System and Minimum Wage2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The commissions system will be handled using DA's internal currency system of points, of which DA takes a royalty from.
Commissions are allowed to start at 10 points each for any type of art produced, from rough sketches and small icons to full digital works. Commissions is a great way for artists to offer their services, but are we creating a low-wage market where over-abundance of supply and lack of unification undercuts everyone?
That is to say, how can we guarantee that artists get paid fairly for their work?
10 points is roughly 13 cents. 1000 points may seem like a large commission, but it's really only $10.
Right now DA takes a 20

Surprise, surprise! I'm PizzaPotatoNBacon, and I'm using this tasty article labeled as "Small Surprise #2" to cover an equally surprising topic. A topic so surprising yet so indulging, you'll have no idea why they let an insane person like me write it. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce you to "Feedback Taboos"!
"What are these so called 'Feedback Taboos?" you are asking.

Giving Feedback on Articles And Tutorials
Why are they considered taboos? Because they may seem 1. too hard to do, 2. too far-fetched, or 3. just outright pointless. Sure, not doing these taboos does not seem like a big deal, but it is. They are all helpful in a whole, yet rarely done, if not done at all. Feedback, as long as it's constructive and helpful, is good, regardless of the submission it was made on.

Protecting The Sea - Behind The ScenesHello, fine person!Protecting The Sea - Behind The Scenes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today I want to give you an insight into how I help to protect the oceans and how much is involved in it. Nothing is ever as simple as protesting, voicing opinions or dragging dolphins off beaches. A lot of things have to be done from a lot of different angles. Those of us who are in the thick of it are always cog wheels in a larger undertaking. I'm able to tell you how it actually is out there, so I'll try to outline how it all feeds together to reach real goals.
But let me start at the beginning.
Germany is one of the leading countries in switching to renewable energy sources - until 2050, the government plans to rely to 80% on green energy. One of the requirements to achieve this goal is to build wind power plants not on land, but at sea.
Imagine it - wind farms in the middle of the sea. An amazing sight! How do they get there? How are they installed? Well, the wind piles get rammed into the sediment by large hydraulic hammers - essentially, it's an upscale versi
