Bosch: Lampoonist or Serious Visionary?
Creator of some of the most bizarre and frightening artwork in the history of art, scholars have long debated who exactly Hieronymus Bosch was and what was the meaning and purpose of his “over the top” grotesqueries (c. 1450—1500). His most famous work is the triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights. Panel One depicts Adam & Eve in Paradise. Panel Two depicts the earthly delights: nude bodies, exotic birds, bowls of fruit. Panel Three depicts Hell’s punishments for partaking of the delights. Centuries later, scholars debated whether he was a radical religious heretic or a satir

WE PROMOTE YOUR COMMISSION JOURNALS!Read to find out how to get your commission info into over 7, 000 DeviantART members inbox!WE PROMOTE YOUR COMMISSION JOURNALS!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You read the headline right! From now on, you can promote your commission information in this group!
We'll be posting a journal once a week that goes straight into all members inbox with your commission sheet in it.
I'll tell you it is, because I'm happy to announce that we will soon reach 7, 000 members!
The journal will be updated every Friday!
The reason we have come up with this idea is because one of our contributors pointed out that a lot of people announce their commissions in the comment section. We think you all should have the opportunity to reach out a little bit more than just a comment!
However, this feature has a price.
You can choose between:
1 week feature for 20
2 week feature for 40
1 month feature for 80
ALL POINTS WILL GO TO THIS GROUPS SAVINGS FOR SUPER GROUP
Why did the system change?Alright, I'm likely beating a :icondeadhorseplz: with this question but I've been chatting with a few people who've been dealing with theft or have dealt with theft of their work recently/in the past.Why did the system change?2 months ago in Personal More Like This
To be honest I think the whole system a site like DeviantART has in place is pretty bogus. You fill out a DMCA removal form and 98.6% of the time you will get an automated response that will openly say one of two things:
1. "The admins have reviewed your report and have concluded that the piece you reported does not violate dA's rules"
2. "The admins have reviewed your report and have concluded that they need more information to complete your report"
In reality all this says to someone like me is "We looked at the report but since this person is a member of the website, we care more about revenue than your artwork".
It's not hard to see the obviousness of theft when you have two visual examples in front of your face, as well as an overlay showing they're the sam
How?Tell me.How?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
How do you handle all this?
It really takes away all the joy from coming to this place and sharing my drawings, thoughts, concepts and characters with you. I'm getting more and more paranoid every time. Are my ideas just stock material?
I'm a peaceful person. I hate arguing and fighting. I know how to deal with flagrant traces and art thefts by simply reporting them. Usually the pieces are deleted and stuff doesn't get personal. But I don't have the strength and willpower to start a pointless internet war over every copied concept or character design that I come across. Not to mention the style imitation. I know one can't copyright things like that, but I believe it's completely possible to see when one has drawn just a bit too much inspiration from someone else's works. If you recognize yourself from this, don't you feel at least a bit guilty for following my every footstep, or someone else's? That is not considered flattering at all.
Please, for your own sake, find your own
Design Contest -Premium Membership prizes-NO MORE EXTENSIONS!!Design Contest -Premium Membership prizes-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
SCROLL DOWN TO SEE END DATE
So I decided to hold a second design contest!
I need moar characters
Which is really sad seeing as I already have so many.
Basically it's pretty much just like my previous design contest.
You design the most awesome critter you can come up with, and I judge at the end of the contest whose I like the most, and I keep him >:3
And I always want to purchase 2nd and 3rd place designs as well for points or $AUS.
From what I can tell, it's pretty standard for the contest holder to keep ALL winners designs, but I know you guys really like the things you design for contests and want to keep them, so that's why I ask to purchase instead ^^
Remember, there's nothing to lose seeing as you can sell your designs or keep them!
Scroll down to see what I will be looking for in the designs :3
And the prizes!
Third place winner:

EBC Empire Points and UsesOriginally used to help ensure members kept their characters active and as a system to determine how "strong" or "weak" a character is, Empire Points, otherwise known as EP, are slowly being changed to where they determine your feline's knowledges and abilities, which are known as Statistics.EBC Empire Points and Uses2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Because this revamp is still in the process, Stats and other Abilities won't be posted here until later. For now, this journal will serve as a database about Empire Points and their current uses. If you don’t fully understand why we use Empire Points, don’t worry, we’ll better explain this in just a few moments.
Empire Points are points your character earns every time you submit art/writings/other media to EBC. These points then go into your empire and help strengthen your character by allowing you to unlock potential abilities and information with it. [As of 1/26/14 this has not been put into effect] .
As of right now EP is a measure of how active you are as a memb

UvU Monta kuvanvaihtoa takana jo, joista mäkin olen muutamaan osallistunut. Viime jouluvaihdossa tuli vähän ongelmia, mutta nyt Salaystävässä (johon itse en osallistunut), oon seuraillut niin paskamaista käytöstä, että haluan kirjoittaa muutaman sanan itsekin. Koen olevani puolueettomassa asemassa tällä kertaa, koska en ole itse osallistunut.

[FIN] Salapukin jalkipuintiEDIT// Tosi monet teistä ovat tarjonneet apua näiden järjestämisten kanssa, ja arvostan sitä todella paljon! Kiitos ajatuksesta![FIN] Salapukin jalkipuinti1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Mutta tässä on juurikin kyseessä se, ettei näiden järjestäminen, kasaaminen tai edes notejen lähettely stressaa minua liikaa tai ole liian vaivalloista! Eniten minua auttaa se, että ihmiset tekisivät kuvat ajoissa valmiiksi, sillä stressaavinta näissä on ehdottomasti se, että joudun ottamaan arvonnan jälkeen henkilökohtaisesti yhteyttä jokaiseen, joka ei ole kuvaansa tehnyt.
Eli, kyllä minä pärjään, ja järjestän näitä tosi mielelläni itsekseni! Siitä ei ole kyse, sillä stressaantuisin luultavasti enemmän vain siitä, jolleivat kaikki narut olisi omissa käsissäni, haha!

'Is this a joke?!' You thought.
You touched the paper and the blood. The blood felt cold and felt like it was there for a long time. First thing that came in your mind that could have done it, Jane. You waited for the others to come back so you started to play Outlast on BEN's computer. They came back right when you started to get chased by a fat guy that looked like a pig and trying to find batteries in the game. They came in barely covered in blood except for Jeff. Jeff looked like he was doing surgery to someone. They looked at you but BEN ran up to you and sat next to you.
"Whatcha doing with my computer?" BEN said.
"Playing Outlast" you said not looking at him.
"Awesome!! Can I play?" he asked.
"Sure.." you said.
You gave him his computer and got up and walked up Jane. She gave you dirty look and rolled her eyes.
"What do want ugly?" she said.

Decade.May 13th, 2003.Decade.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The day I joined deviantART.
That was ten years ago. A decade.
In that time I've been married, divorced, married again, welcomed my two children into the world, been held in rapture at new friendships and grieved over friends passing, attended devmeets with over 400+ people and made more art than I ever ever thought I would. I've been a member, premium member, a volunteer Gallery Moderator, and now a Core Staff member, running a department within deviantART.
Had anyone told me that my life would unfold in that way ten years ago I simply wouldn't have believed them. The impact that this single website has had on the direction my life has travelled is profound. It has shaped me as a person, as an artist and as a professional. It has enriched my life and those of my family and friends.
So at this time, ten years passing, how can I possibly sum up my experience in a drawing, or a photograph or a cake or anything else? I thought long and hard

Until the manned spaceflights of the 1960s let humanity “slip the surly bonds of earth,” the closest one could get to the heavens was Mt. Everest, the highest mountain in the world.

Underdogs who get ripped offI'm sure a lot of people get down and out about not getting views or favs. I'm probably down around I'd say 80%. And I know why. It's because I stopped posting color animals and felines doing cool magic stuff.Underdogs who get ripped off2 years ago in Personal More Like This
On this note, it's rather easy to be popular on dA. Do something cool, and neat in color and be nice to everyone, even the bonafide jerks and hide your tracings and stealing well.
Of course not everyone popular does this crap. But a good amount does, a good amount meaning I feel it should be 0 but I already know 5 who does this out of the 100s I've seen. (I don't watch them though of course )
On this note if you see anyone on dA taking the easy way out on art who gets defensive or emo over their art, but ALSO causes you grief, just remember that they aren't being true to artistry. Anyone who does the drama llama over art isn't an artist imo.
That's why I'm a true fan of the underdogs on dA, especially the ones that get ripped off.
Trick or Treat Giveaway! (Points, cash, and more)Ended! I'll be announcing the winners after I give out the rest of the numbers. c:Trick or Treat Giveaway! (Points, cash, and more)6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Stealing this idea from Point-Master-Pete (hope that's okay with them!)
In celebration of one of my favorite holidays, I wanted to hold a giveaway of sorts with various different prizes! Please read this journal before entering!
There are a total of 20 treat bags to choose from. Some contain treats (one of the prizes listed below) and other contain tricks (nothing!). If you picked the right bag, you get the corresponding prize. If you picked a trick bag, you sadly get nothing! :c The bags are already pre-labeled to their corresponding prize in a word document. My sister salmon-bear can verify this!
I'll be drawing 10 numbers. So only 10 of the 20 bags will be chosen. If I draw your number but your bag was already chosen by a different winner, I'll redraw a different number. That way I'm not giving out say, 10 of the same prize!
The Rules of the Impressive Title Servers1 - Do not talk about ITrThe Rules of the Impressive Title Servers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
2 - If you make a server, expect another server to rival yours for any or no reason.
3 - The more popular your server gets, the more satisfying it is to see it shut down.
4 - There will always be a post asking"Why the server is down!", right below yours explaining why.
5 - No matter how cool your new rare items are, they will be old the next item update.
6 - Impressive Title was made for the children.
7 - Ignore Rules #1 and #6
8 - No matter how much the community hates you, a server will hire your useless ass eventually.
9 - If they don't speak the same language you do, they are hacking and stealing your contents.
10 - Stop being a pussy and just ban the annoying troll off your server already, for f++k sake.
11 - There will always be a better server than yours eventually. No exceptions.
12 - Get screenshots or GTFO the Report Section.
13 - The only real difference between FH and IT is that IT's now yours. Abuse that power.
14 - If you have to ask for help
Chapter Critique #1For some time now, I've had the idea that I would go through the novel "Memoirs of a Geisha" chapter by chapter and note the inaccuracies within it. The reason why is because of the sheer number of people (probably in the tens of millions worldwide) who believe the book is anywhere from mostly accurate to consistently accurate. These people treat the book as a legitimate reference material concerning geisha, and I want to show them that this is a bad idea. I don't believe novels should be treated as factual reference material in general, but this in particular is a practice I dislike because "Memoirs of a Geisha" is not even fifty percent accurate. It is mostly inaccurate. I figured if there was a collection somewhere that points out where the inaccuracies are, from the largest to the smallest, then at least some people would finally stop doing this and start treating the book like the fiction that it is.Chapter Critique #12 years ago in Personal More Like This
