40k community and critisimYa know, I'm fed up with it.40k community and critisim7 months ago in Personal More Like This
When I post an artwork on a fucking WEBSITE DEDICATED TO ART, I expect some fucking artistic critique, some discussion about technique, tips for improvement, all that fancy art jazz. Even when it's fandom-related, and natural to talk about those points, I sort of expect people to respect the artist.
But noooo... The dA 40k community gets more atrocious during the day and I feel more and more ashamed to be a part of it.
Becuase like, 50% of feedback that I get on my 40k art isn't about the artwork, or the characters there, no, it's fucking stupid X FACTION IS COOLER, FUCK YEAH X FACTION! MY FAVE FACTION BEATS UR STUPID FACTION N CHARACTERS! (ADD SOME STUPID OUTCRY FROM THE LORE BELONGING TO X FACTION). I get stupid notes and messages like DRAW MORE X, and shit.
You know, dear fucking watchers, my patience is running fucking thin. I'm trying to optimize my communications. When I was unemployed, I had time to argue about stupid fanfuck shit and tolerate it - n

My views on race, ethnicity and history
So, the correct lablel would be a white supremacist. While "white supremacy" is often associated with being an insane racist yelling "kill all the niggers, all the j00s", it's not exactly about that. Killing niggers and jews and whoever else is like the cherry on top of the whole idea, a last resort if you will.
No, when I'm saying that I'm a white supremacist, I mean a very specific thing - the reality of the modern world. This reality is the following: caucasian civilization owns and runs this shit. We're everywhere. Our white european technology, religion, methodology, philosophy and science outlasted and outdone everything else. We are the leaders and the cement. In the turmoils of the last 2 millenia we came on top and made everyone else f
-- False Flag Hatred --"Although bananas may only look like a fruit, they represent a wide variety of environmental, economic, social, and political problems. The banana trade symbolizes economic imperialism, injustices in the global trade market, and the globalization of the agricultural economy. Bananas are also number four on the list of staple crops in the world and one of the biggest profit makers in supermarkets, making them critical for economic and global food security. As one of the first tropical fruits to be exported, bananas were a cheap way to bring "the tropics" to North America and Europe. Bananas have become such a common, inexpensive grocery item that we often forget where they come from and how they got here."-- False Flag Hatred --5 months ago in Personal More Like This

deviantART has given me the opportunity to perform two Community Volunteer positions here:
I am the Science Fiction and Space Art Community Volunteer.
I am also now the new 3 Dimensional Art Community Volunteer.
One of the duties of these positions is that I can feature artwork from these categories as Daily Deviations.
I browse through these categories daily in search of deviations to feature as Daily Deviations.
This feature is to help the artist and their work gain more exposure, and it's genre and/or medium gains more community awareness as well.
But I need your help.
Have you seen a work of art here on deviantART which you have found so impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large?
Do you know an artist of whom deserves much more exposure?
Would you like to put a smile on someones face and make their

The Comfort of Mindless Obedience
When is information true and useful and when is it just “propaganda?” Why in fact is an image or phrase or animated art sequence “propaganda” rather than it simply being a “lie?” What about acceptable lies that define our society as much as they degrade it - - for example commercials that obviously hype a product with untruths or political advertisements full of unachievable platitudes.

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunde

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine

It really saddens me that there is this semblance of freedom of speech and when someone says something that opposes the majority, it gets immediately criticized as close-minded and stamped out.
I cannot talk, for my thoughts will ruin me. I would rather stay silent.

I don't have much time to follow the impact my media presence has, but it seems other people – particularly creepy, stalkerish people do. From them I learn a lot of shit, get tips for trolling and other stuff.
Likewise, today another my followers dug up this: - http://artist-confessions.tumblr.com/post/34367215643/submitted-by-anonymous#postnotes.
I avoid Tumblr like the plague. I've made an account there a few years ago when I was banned or someshit, but I'm a conservative person and I really don't like having a shitton of online platforms to work on. Ain't nobody got time for dat. Aint nobody with a full-time job I mean, which explains why a lot of dA artists also have a heavy presence on that blogging site. In the time where I first attempted to make a blog there to the present moment, this LJ-wannabe venture turned into the best internet hugbox for the poor, oppressed OWS-inclined hipsters.
VHEMT: A Cult for GenocideI was looking over the Internet all bored, trying to find a reason why birth rates in Germany, Japan, Italy, and Russia keep getting so low until I found out about this twisted and insane group called the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (VHEMT), a twisted, left-winged, reactionary group bent on prevention of human breeding and with it, the voluntary extinction of humanity. To me, it sounds like people are giving up hope because we keep destroying our environment. I know i am a Moderate Conservative and a Christian Deist, but I also believe in environmentalism and I see what VHEMT is doing is basically the worst idea I have ever heard of, perhaps more worst than China's one child policy. We all know what they are going after to achieve that aim and they believe that there is too many people on this planet, believing that we would make every animal on the planet go extinct. The group was founded in 1991 and they tend to believe that as long as humanity survives and breeds, more and mVHEMT: A Cult for Genocide6 months ago in Personal More Like This

The Boston Marathon bombings.
The current disposition of the story is as follows: two brothers Tsarnaev of Chechen origin moved to Kazakhstan, then to US. Gained citizenship as political refugees from the bloody Russian regime, got college grants as sportsmen, lived in the US for some time – the older even married an American wife. Their family was also scattered – father stayed in Dagestan.
Few years ago, they traveled back to Dagestan for unknown reasons, and Russian intelligence that tracked their online activity had alerted the FBI for possible muslim radicalization of these people. The American intelligence briefly looked into it, found nothing more and got no more feedback from the Russian side.
Then, they made bombs out of pressure cookers and blew up some bystanders at the Boston Marathon, because holy jihad.

Here's how it works: In the ME series, you create your own Commander Shepard to play the game with. The decisions you make and how you choose to play the game shape the story around your individual choices. So, in essence, my Mass Effect isn't the same as yours. So if I wanted a print of Mass Effect, my Commander Shepard wouldn't be the same as yours either, right?
So here's what we're offering - Adam completed this huge ME poster:
Now, for $30 (plus $5 shipping), you can get your own CUSTOM 11x17 poster featuring your personal Shepard. You also choose either Ashley or Kaidan as your Virmire Survivor.

Infinity Seven Takes On the Coming Zerg InvasionStarCraft II is the hot tournament videogame that just may breakthrough as the harbinger of the esports phenomenon and one of the great cultural game-changers of all time. Midnight in Anaheim. Caffeinated casters boom rapid fire commentary rattling the packed hall. Elite StarCraft players from around the globe execute complex strats that would have made Rommel the Desert Fox himself proud. 15,000 are in attendance, on the edge of their seats, and cheering as loudly as any soccer match as they watch the 30-foot screens hanging from the rafters. Another few hundred thousand are watching the streams live. The feeling is that of an NCAA Final Four game, set in a European soccer stadium, somehow shoehorned into a casino showroom in Las Vegas.
