And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages. At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
And then the whining school boy, with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school.
And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress' eyebrow.
Fashion Issue IV by Staged
Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths and beaded like the pard, Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon's mouth.

Top 11 Most Annoying Things Fans Do on the WebI was lying in bed, trying to force myself to fall asleep, and this happened - I got a spirit to write once again.Top 11 Most Annoying Things Fans Do on the Web2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So now, I am about to share my personal opinions on something everybody had witnessed at least once.
Fanboys and Fangirls - These two are so alive nowadays, it's practically impossible to not meet one on the street on one single day. They are practically everywhere - at school, on trips, on vacations, even on the Internet. This includes Deviantart - I wonder if somebody actually estimates how many members of DA are fangirls and fanboys of something.
And to be fair, I am not surprised nobody ever tried, because pretty much everybody is a fan of something - I too used to be a fanboy of a couple of things, and I still fave certain things to this day. But then again, there are certain things in Fans' behaviour that either bother You or simple piss You off. And I am going to present my top 11 list of Things Fans Do on the Wed, including Deviantart, that make me furious. Why top

This challenge has ended. Thank you for the entries, and for a successful first run!
The winners will be selected within a couple days.
You've heard of flash mobs, right? Large groups of people that meet in public places and perform in some way for a short amount of time, then disperse and act as if nothing happened, leaving everyone else surprised and confused? I figured I'd try to incorporate something like that into a short challenge.
You will be given a theme. The idea is to quickly piece together a manip based on that theme. Because the time limit to complete it will be short, technical skill will not be heavily judged.
There will be more of these challenges, but they will not be on a set schedule. Like a flash mob, they're meant to surprise you and keep you on your toes.
So much water - contest #12This contest has ended. The winners announcement can be found here.So much water - contest #124 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I don't swim where I can't see the bottom.
This time we have a rather loose contest theme - as another Autumn approaches, and the rainy days with it, let's bring this water in. Whether it be salt water in an ocean or a massive wall of rain, your submission must have a huge amounts of water in it. Well, for a 2" tall fairy, a bowl of water might be a lot, if you think of it. But for a giant, ain't no little puddle going to work in this contest.
Obviously enough, since this group is called this and not that, and our mood is exactly what it is, you need to think about it, too.
Deadline: the 25th of October 2014.
Limit of submissions: one piece per member.
The entry must be prepared for the contest precisely.
You must be a member to participate.

Now to the judging, i will post the results as soon as i have them hopefully by early next weekMyths and legends Contest Closed2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Who hasn't heard of myths or legend of the past ? who hasn't wondered if they were real or just a story to put kids to sleep ? Who hasn't had an interest as slight as it may have been in those stories that populated ancient civilizations and are still alive today ?
In the past years people have started asking themselves questions at the light of new discoveries and the gaps in the classical history taught to us. To many questions stay unanswered and we are left to choose between believing or laughing at those records from an ancient time.
For my second contest i chose to go for this theme as i find it

Manip Academy 1: Parallelism, by Carlos-QuevedoI am posting this on behalf of Carlos-Quevedo. Feel free to leave comments here, but please note that this is Carlos' work, not mine! Please share your gratitude with him for sharing his knowledge with us. -AeirmidManip Academy 1: Parallelism, by Carlos-Quevedo5 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of the most important things I use in my work is about “Parallelism and Symmetry”. These subjects are related with the order of the elements in a composition, the layout of resources. A parallel and symmetric use of elements in a composition produces and effective transmission to the view; it expresses an easy comprehension of direction.
The use of geometric forms to order the elements in your composition is a very good way to make your art effective. You can see the next examples about how I order the resources.
In these cases, I put several elements organized to the same direction or similar forms to get symmetry. Of course, not all the elements have to be parallel, but the parallel elements you

Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig
