Six Word Story Contest - 7 3Mo.Subs to be won!A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.Six Word Story Contest - 7 3Mo.Subs to be won!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
So getting to the point of this article, we are kickstarting this year with a six word story contest! We have some awesome prizes and hopefully enough freedom for you to enjoy yourselves too! Please support the contest and the article so that more can join in on the fun!
Top Ten Sci Fi Weapons On FilmLet the nerd debate RAGE!Top Ten Sci Fi Weapons On Film3 years ago in Personal More Like This
10: Phased plasma rifle (in a 40 watt range) - The Terminator
Thanks to some superb camera work, editing and sound effects, the weapons seen in The Terminator's future sequences packed a gut-wrenching punch that was light years away from the pew-pew lasers of yesteryear. As he demonstrated in Aliens, James Cameron had a particular way of giving his fanciful ordnance real substance and weight, and the future he depicts in 1984's The Terminator is genuinely the stuff of nightmares. If only McG had looked to these sequences for inspiration when making Terminator Salvation, maybe he could have recaptured some of the oppressive sense of foreboding and hopelessness that James Cameron brought to his classic original. Just look at the sequence where a Terminator blasts its way into a human compound near the end of the film. The intruder's every move has a menacing sense of purpose, while the destructive power of the Plasma Rifle it carries is perfectly depi

That's right, it's exhibition time! Any animal, any discipline - just show them off!
This event is set in Hightor's main indoor arena. The entire area is pitch black, dotted with bright spotlights that you can use however you wish. Colours, patterns and positions can be customised to each performance.

It has occurred to me that I have never done a raffle before. And I kinda wanna do one. This raffle is going to be very small and very simple. That's just how it's gonna work. There's not much you have to do, but there are some pretty easy rules to follow.
You must be watching me. Whether a new watcher or an old watcher, I don't care. No tears.
You must favorite this journal. I don't care if you unfav it after the raffle is over. But you have to fav it the first time.
You must have at least three deviations in your gallery. I'm not giving them to you just because. I want you to deserve them.
You must favorite this journal by Sept. 19th, 2013 or you will not be included in the raffle.
Now that we have the rules established, let's move onto the raffle prizes. They are very small, as I stated earlier. (Maybe I'll do a bigger one another time.)

Art must be made by you.
If your horse is registered in Dressage League, enter the class that fits your horse’s level. If not, you can choose freely.
There are no extensions, if you missed this show, you can enter the next.
Don’t make drama with the admins, judged or fellow participants, and don’t ask for special treatment/rulebending.
If your horse is registered in the group, they will get 1 extra point (p) for their entry. (Additional for the 5p you get for the show being sanctioned)
This is a one-entry event, extra drawings and stories are lovely to see, but won’t give you any extra chance of winning.

5 Ways to Avoid Being DiminishedThere's a discussion brewing in comics about artists being more diminished as of late--that readers, reviewers, and publishers are focusing too much on writers rather than the artists who draw the book. I agree it's happening, but I'm not sure it's worth sounding an alarm over. I never felt diminished, but maybe I'm part of the exception. Maybe it's because I'm an artist and a writer.5 Ways to Avoid Being Diminished7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Either way, I do have a few thoughts on what artists can do to pull themselves out from under the rug.
1. DON'T DRAW LIKE A COG.
If you conform to a "house style", then you're at higher risk of being treated like an interchangeable cog in the comics machine. Yes, you're more likely to get consistent work, but you won't stand out as much. Therefor you'll be sought after less by big name writers, you're less likely to make a lasting impression on reviewers and readers, and you'll have a harder time getting raises (12 others draw like you and for less money).
I also suggests inking yourself if it helps. Penc

Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art SchoolsAs much as I love my school, Academy of Art University, it's not necessary to attend a special art school in order to learn about art. Because of the internet, there are plenty of resources available for those who are self-motivated and eager to learn.Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art Schools1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'll start with some of the cheapest resources, ending with more expensive ones:
1. Blogs, podcasts and livestreams. Most professional artists keep blogs, and these things are free treasure troves of information. The best blogs don't only show off art, they also give tips about the business of art and introduce you to new resources. Try starting with Muddy Colors, a super informative blog run by several professional painters and sculptors: http://muddycolors.blogspot.com/ For podcasts, check out Chris Oatley's artcast: http://chrisoatley.com/category/podcasts/ Also check out the Awesome Horse Studios livestream: http://www.awesomehorsestudios.com/
