About The AcademyIntroductionAbout The Academy5 years ago in Personal More Like This
We formed a small group of devoted artists to build this project. Our goal is to create motivation and contribute to our dA community.
We noticed that most artist groups on dA are strictly connected to technical and educational side of art. That's why we decided to create our own project, where we would create a playful environment with a lot of opportunities to express your creativity and interact with other artists.
Imagine an online role-playing game, where you communicate with others through pictures you draw. Yep, that's us.
Our main purpose is to offer people opportunities and a base for them to practice creating comics, working in groups, storytelling, character designing, and more. Yet, we try to keep all of this "learning" to a fun role-playing experience. Present yourself, draw your quests, tell your story, show your passion. Fight against the hardships of student life.

Today's Ranting Topic: Belgium/Spabel Hate
also don't think i'm a jerk for this - i usually don't go on rants |D
Why do so many people hate Belgium? >:U
She is the second character to have ever appeared in Hetalia.
Don't believe me? Here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZ7TMiUS3Ks Watch.
And Spain is the third character to ever appear.
Coincidence? I think not! *cough cough* implying Spabel *cough cough*
This brings me to something i just came up with today:
"The Aki Uncertainty Principle" (omg i have no life OTL)
which is: "A pairing in an anime can never be known as canon unless the creator distinctly states that it is canon"
So let's take the Christmas Event for example.

Fun Facts About Sebastian Michaelis' Symbol (EDIT)Ever wondered about the writings and symbolism on the contract between our adorable young Earl and his trusty butler? Well, since I'm as curious as a cat myself, here are some things I found out (internet, you never cease to amaze me):Fun Facts About Sebastian Michaelis' Symbol (EDIT)5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Fact 1: TE TRA GRAM MA TON
~ weirdly enough, tetragrammaton came from a Greek word that means "(a word) having four letters". The Tetragrammaton occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text of both the Biblia Hebraica and Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia.
These four letters are usually transliterated from Hebrew as IHVH in Latin, JHWH in German, French and Dutch, and JHVH/YHWH in English. This has been variously rendered as "Yahweh" or even occasionally as "Jehovah", based on the Latin form of the term, while the Hebrew text does not clearly indicate the omitted vowels.
(- - if you think about it, why would something about God be in a pentagram (The star in a circle symbol)? But then again, the following fact
Sasuke...Chapter 698*SPOILERS***Sasuke...Chapter 6984 months ago in Personal More Like This
The Mangadoom translation was just released, prior to which I sat in painful anticipation as I looked over the Japanese raws half a dozen times. Even not understanding a word of what was being said, the chapter was so clear. Sasuke has finally let go; he's free. There's one panel where Sasuke looks up at the sky, and he is so calm, and relieved as he admits, "I lost." And he couldn't be happier.
I'm still on an emotional high, and slowly mellowing out as I write out all my feeling. So I'll just write things as they come to mind, in no particular order. Is it even necessary to say how happy I am...? This is the best chapter so far, in my opinion, and seeing as we've only got two more to do it might keep that status for me. Because this chapter was -IT- the moment when Naruto finally got through to Sasuke, without talk-no-jutsu, and Sasuke let all of his negative emotion go by finally conceding defeat and acknowledging Naruto as his dear friend. And in case you've been hidin

Broken Youth ED Cosplay Photo Sequence!NARUTO LIVE ACTION?!Broken Youth ED Cosplay Photo Sequence!6 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, our attempt at it anyway.
We loved the sixth Shippuuden ending animation, and this is what happened. These shots are better viewed in sequence so I decided to keep them all in this journal entry, as opposed to spamming you guys by submitting each shot individually into my gallery.
That certainly was a challenge. You might notice the use of the diffusion filter in some shots. I usually prefer photos crisp and clear, but we wanted to capture the feel of the video as much as we possibly could. I'll make a follow-up post or something with other shots from the shoot, as well as outtakes.
We know our take isn't perfect, but we did our best to work with what we had. We had to compromise some scenes. That stone relic is missing, but come on - it's not exactly easy to come by those things! Haha!
If you're not familiar with the Broken Youth ending, I suggest you check out this video because the following photo series might not make any sense ot

What is Cosplay?...... I'm so annoyed with this article.What is Cosplay?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most of all "The weird thing, (well, all of it is weird), is that these folks really want to be the fictional characters they portray." Uh... No. no, no, nonono! we like the characters, love them, appreciate them, but dressing up and acting like them is not us thinking we are them. it is no different than an actor in a movie or stage play playing the part.
My first cosplay was Grell... who in the series was half of Jack the Ripper. If I wanted to actually BE him, I'd likely be needed to be put behind bars for killing people. But that's not me. I'd never do that.
If you are going to write an article about a topic you don't know it helps to talk to the people who are into it. There is so much they got wrong in writing that, and they focused on parts that don't even apply to the majority of the Cosplay community.

Decoration/ Customization TutorialJournal SkinsDecoration/ Customization Tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you make a new Journal, look to your right. Over there is where you select what Journal Skins from your installed collection you will use. The default is Deviant Green. Right by there is another square with what appears to be an eye that is labeled "Browse Skins." Click that, and you can look through DevaintART's Journal Skins category for ones you might like and can install to use later to ensure that these are for Free use--anyone can use it--, and not Private use-- only a particular person can use--). HOWEVER, you can only use a Journal Skin besides the default if you are a paid Premium Member, Senior Member, or if a company has sponsored free Journal Skins (which happens about once or twice a year) for a short time. You can also make or customize your own Journal Skin using CSS (specific coding), but since most people do not know how, I asked firstfear to make some templates in 2012.
