Warhammer 40,000 Taught me to ReadWhen I was 10, I couldn't read. I wasn't stupid, it was just that written words eluded me. Then one day I was introduced to a strange game called Warhammer 40,000 which involved pushing little miniatures around a table top and rolling lots of dice. I LOVED it. But the thing was, in order to play you had to learn a whole lot of rules from a HUGE rulebook. It took me a long time, but I read that damn rulebook over and over again until I could understand every last sentence. And once I could read, I never looked back. Now I have a university masters and am a (very minor) published author. In no small way, I owe that to Warhammer 40,000.Warhammer 40,000 Taught me to Read4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The thing was, as I grew older I had less and less time to play the game and fewer and fewer friends that were also into the hobby. So I stopped playing. Then I stopped painting the models. And finally, earlier this year I got married and had to sell all my old Warhammer stuff to make space. But I never stopped loving the background to it. The thing was, I
Guide on how to create vector-style rasters (OLD)EDIT - Dec 08, 2013 - This is OLD, like really, really OOOOOOLLLLD and outdated, and there are better methods out there. I don't even do vectors this way anymore. That said, it's still useful as a guide on how to use the pen tool to make shapes specifically for pony vectors in a manner where they're layered efficiently easily modifiable. Just felt the need to point this out as I am still getting messages from people who don't understand that this is old and that I know there are alternative methods. I thank you all for your input.Guide on how to create vector-style rasters (OLD)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I say anything, if you're familiar with proper vectoring at all then once you've heard what I do you'll realize I'm not making "true" vectors with the process I use. This might seem a bit odd because what I do means that if I wanted to make a larger version of the image I would basically have to scale the paths I've made and re-"paint" the whole image, but I'm just doing these for fun so I make them large to begin with; the end re

New Username SymbolsAs part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.New Username Symbols2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Chaos with the HarmonySigh....Chaos with the Harmony3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I dont really know what to say.
As an artist it is the worse pain that you can have. Not being able to express ones self.
As fans of Discord or My Little Pony in General, we all know that there has to be a balance.
There will always be Chaos and there will always be Harmony. But the line is so thin it makes the tread look like a river.
We cannot deny the two.
But when things like 18 children... All under the age of 7 years old.... are KILLED.... Along with other victims. We wonder where the balance is.
Sigh... The first day of my administration and I have to deal with this.
The reason why I'm talking about is is because as Discord fans people might lash out at us. "oh so you like chaos huh? Well what about this?"
Easy... This is not Chaos.... This is pure EVIL.
We are not fans of death and murder. Hurt or Pain.
There is Good in Harmony And Evil in Chaos. But we know the balance. We know ourselves.

Art History: Writing a Pantomime:iconarthistoryproject: :iconcrliterature:Art History: Writing a Pantomime3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Pantomime is easy to write? (Oh no it isn’t!)
Pantomime is a traditional form of theatre, which in its most recognised form originated from the Victorian era and continues to be a prominent aspect of British theatre today. Writing a Pantomime as a scriptwriter may seem like an easy feat- the traditional fairy-tale put onto stage, but in fact it is a style where the traditional conventions are still a strong element of modern pantomime scriptwriting.
This art history article not only shares where the origins of pantomime came from, but shares some of those conventions which as a scriptwriter need consider before writing.
The birth of Pantomime
Like most forms of theatre, the origins of pantomime derive from the ancient Greeks. Greek theatre was not only an entertainment form, but a celebration of the god Dionysus and a way of retelling the stories we now know as Greek Myths. Significant
Columbine: Whose Fault Is It?An essay by Marilyn Manson - May 28 1999Columbine: Whose Fault Is It?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is sad to think that the first few people on earth needed no books, movies, games or music to inspire cold-blooded murder. The day that Cain bashed his brother Abel's brains in, the only motivation he needed was his own human disposition to violence. Whether you interpret the Bible as literature or as the final word of whatever God may be, Christianity has given us an image of death and sexuality that we have based our culture around. A half-naked dead man hangs in most homes and around our necks, and we have just taken that for granted all our lives. Is it a symbol of hope or hopelessness? The world's most famous murder-suicide was also the birth of the death icon — the blueprint for celebrity. Unfortunately, for all of their inspiring morality, nowhere in the Gospels is intelligence praised as a virtue.
A lot of people forget or never realize that I started my band as a criticism of these very issues of despair and hypocrisy. The

What comes to mind when you hear the name Pablo Picasso? That’s right, it’s time to break it down, Cubism-style! For the first time ever, we are hosting a Messenger Bag Design Challenge! We want you to create an original design for the flap of the bag in the style of Cubism.
For this challenge, we are defining Cubism as an art style in which instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from multiple viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often, the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create a shallow ambiguous space.
Your design should appear on the flap of the bag (below the zipper), using only <

“Keepers of the Crime of Passion died by the hand of the one they loved, or by the hand of the one who loved them. Sometimes both. Love and hate overflowed during the crime, and unlocked several psychic and magical locks humans are born with, making them often incapable of magic.
Magical streams are attracted by emotions and feelings. Passion is what makes magic efficient, and willpower is what makes it usable. These keepers are usually very sensitive and knowledgeable characters, and them having access to the arcanes of both worlds makes them fiery opponents.”
