Sonic Wave by cibo-black-cat
Not for the faint of heart,
The fan–made Defense of the Ancients (DotA) strategy game takes place on a virtual battlefield where skillfully trained players level up their heroes and arm attacks against each other’s teams to claim satisfying victory. Released in 2003, it is one of the original multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games and certainly one of the most suc

The 101 Guide To Marketing For ArtistsSlowly I get to catch up with deviations on here, now I just need to make use of the journals more oftenThe 101 Guide To Marketing For Artists11 months ago in Personal More Like This
There are some things I would be glad, someone would have told me earlier...
Marketing is such a thing - since I´m freelancing 5 years now it is save to say that is no accident that I´m happily blessed with the "just right" clients and it all boils down to be due to authentic marketing. Honestly- I embrace everything that has to do with it, below you find my write up to get a better understanding of what it is all about.
I always found interest in psychology and marketing but when I jumped on the freelancing train 5 years ago I especially embraced anything that I could find to help me understand, use and practice marketing as a way to keep myself busy with work that I love to do and to collaborate with people who respect what I do.
In the process I learned much from many different experts and in this post I will forward what I´ve learn

How do you deal with haters?I got this as a question on my Tumblr, and I felt I could share my thoughts here as well because it seems it's something a lot of people can relate to. I hope this comes to helpful to any of you guys reading.How do you deal with haters?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’m certain there are people who dislike me. Some I come to know through whisperings because I have eyes everyyyyywheeeeere.
However, I don’t feel the need to acknowledge them or do anything about it unless they are causing any real harm, especially to people I care about.
There is a popular quote that I like referencing for this topic, which gets the message across in a charming way:
“You can be a juicy, ripe peach and there’s still going to be someone who doesn’t like peaches, so you can either submit to someone’s criticism of you, or you can get on with the business of being your own amazing self who attracts other like-minded people that appreciat

Random morning with Isnovo, Alphonse+Marize and Chalkie. ((maybe Qodne too...?))
I wake up and like usually, that pervy Isnovo is sleeping top of me and squishes my breasts while sleeping.
I told him before that he can't sleep in my bed but when i fall asleep he do it anyway, dammit that perv...
But then i squirm away quietly and go to the computer, Al is sleeping with Marize on the floor
(because we dont have couch) and they look so cute when they sleep together, Marize is purring
quietly with happy face and Al looks very calm like always.
Well i am on computer some time, until i suddenly hear weird noise and i go to look what is it.
It is just Chalkie, drawing on the wall with chalk and i just go back to computer.
Morning is quiet, until Al does a facepalm and mumbles something, like that he hate cookies or something like that.....
Then i go to school and i feel like someone is watching, maybe it is Qodne...??

Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.For a lot of you it might be nothing new, but since a lot of you are either new on dA or not experienced with something like "strategies" to get views, comments and faves for their works i (your most favourite dA group guy :icongbk666: ) thought i write up a few hopefully useful hints for you.Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Upload as many drawings / photos etc. as you can. Some of you would argue now that it can be counterproductive if the deviations are not good, but i come to that point in #2
2. Join Groups. A Ton of them.. at least 15-25 . And submit your stuff to them on a regular base. BUT only the things you consider by yourself as "good" . The rest is for your gallery only, and interesting for those deviants who want to see sketches, WIP's etc.
Always care about the theme of the dA groups of course and about their rules. If you are not Alvin Lee, Artgerm or Genzoman or have over 100k views on your profile already and over 400-500 watchers at least you really need dA groups to g

In freshman year, I was going through some very sick movements, I had post traumatic stress disorder because of an incident that occurred in 7th-8th grade, And It involved me almost throwing up I front of my class mates during math class
Now throwing up doesn't seem that bad to some people, But It's Somethinn that terrifies me so badly, To have a phobia of
Ever since that incident I constantly had this state of mind of where if I ate lunch or food at school, The same Thing would happen all over and I'll throw up in front of everyone and my life would be ruined because people saw me and Theyll always think of me as the girl who threw up
I never ate at school; Because I was too scared of it happening again
I didn't eat, I never did

Random morning. (( part 3 of ? ))I just stared at Qodne and he stared back, suddenly Isnovo slapped me to the ass and he happily grins.Random morning. (( part 3 of ? ))2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I made murderous look at Isnovo, and when i was going to look back to Qodne, he already have disappeared.
Marize was cooking something in the kitchen, but still Al was sleeping......
And i suddenly wanted to draw Al a mustaches, but Isnovo was already drawing.
Isnovo tried to hold his laugh, but he burst out laughing loud.
Then Al wakes up, he is confused and dont know whats going on.
I started to laugh too when i saw how funny Al was with mustaches.
Al was still confused, he goes to bathroom and looks in the mirror.
He comes out with murderous look and slowly start to walk toward me and Isnovo.
Chalkie was STILL drawing with his chalk, he dont notice whats going on around him.....

Whenever you encounter one of these Idiots, don't hesitate to send a note with the details to groups like

You can also always just contact me GBK and FGE Group Dictator ..in really stupid cases i use the groups sometimes too to get the focus on art thieves.
Small rant because it is true
People who also suck:
All the people who upload a ton of SoulCalibur and/ or SFXT Screenshots.
People who upload not one..not two..not 5, but over 150! official Tekken artworks to their gallery and seem to believe dA is something like imageshack.
People who don't share the FGE Admin's opinion!
Happy Advent Time everyone!
Duped.Fake CommissionDuped.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Recently I found out that one of the commissions I undertook a while back was, in fact, a setup. It was hired by forum members of Encyclopedia Dramatica, one of whom I actually use to talk to and have good discussions with. They pooled their resources to pay for it, sent me the info and money, and then proceeded to sit back and document everything I did or didn’t do per their highly specific criterias. The user in question then posting a lengthy take-down (though through a disclaimer on the top of the journal it’s clearly not a takedown! lulz!) here on DA.
Here is the commission:
The journal in question talks at great length about my seemingly lack of transparency. IE: that I don’t communicate every little facet of what I’m doing to them, such as the number of commissions I have, what my “job” is, what my home schedule is like, etc. And honestly? This is WHY I’m not transpar

There are a ton of great martial arts movies out there but which are your favourites and which do you recommend? I try to build up a list /database of cool martial arts movies in this journal now for the future which could be updated from time to time and be of use for some of us when we search a good martial arts movie, i start with the first ten!
Please write a 2-5 lines review and description for movies you recommend.Maybe add 1-3 actor names too. Anything counts, from fun stuff like Kung Pow to fantasy martial art movies like Hero.
You are also welcome to rate the movies already listed here so readers see multiple ratings of FGE members here. (1=worst 10=awesome)
