5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Traditional and Digital art are both completely different mediums, able to create the same product. It is possible to paint a beautiful, watercolor-like painting digitally, as well as achieve the cleanliness and color options of a digital piece traditionally. Therefore, using one or the other to express ourselves creatively is, just like many things in life, just an option. People may have personal, sometimes even illogical reasons for using one or the other and that's fine. Today, however, I'm a cheerleader for the "traditional side", and I offer you 5 reasons to do it traditionally!
1. Oh the wonderful smell of art supplies > I'm not talking about the toxic smell that come painting techniques require, of course. Rather about the feeling you get when entering a huge art supply store, touching all those brand new pencils and tubes

-EDIT---CONTEST!! - Fantasy Wonderland.---EDIT-----EDIT---CONTEST!! - Fantasy Wonderland.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
From now on, can people PLEASE put the title "Fantasy Wonderland" as their title or mention it in the description, if we don't see it, we'll decline. The reason for this is that some people just submit to the first open folder they see. Thank you.
Going with the theme, I've changed the name to Fantasy Wonderland which some of you member's have suggested. If you can title you're submission's as "Fantasy Wonderland", that'd be a great help
You may draw whatever Magical, mythical or any particular countries country's culture or mythologies of creatures.
As the title states, 'Wonderland', so don't just draw something on it's own, it has to be shown that it's having fun in whichever way you think that the creatures have fun.
As mentioned on the other post, the winner will be having all the point's that are donated within the 2 month time limit, a full feature spot in the journal, winning piece will go into the feature folder and a donated coloured sketch from our very own
Updates as of October2009: Missing Halloween's story was created. Discontinued.Updates as of October1 month ago in Personal More Like This
2010: Attempted to rework in 3D. Failed. Discontinued.
2013: Revived and started the animation production. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2014: Resumed and held a contest. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2015: Resumed. Missing Halloween didn't miss Halloween!
For the past month, me and Negyek were hard at work, day and night, to finish Missing Halloween. Later on, Procrastacat and VenBright were hired to give various voices for the ending scene. All of these are, of course, paid jobs, thanks to my Patreon supporters.
By November 29, the animation is officially done. All 8+ minutes of it.

-Pandora (along with Discord) is curiously immune to the typical effects of Poison Joke. Instead it induces a state of drug-like euphoria. Both Pan and Discord go a little loopy in the head and start rolling around and purring and generally acting like (really big)cats with catnip. This information came as news to Twilight when she brought a sample of Poison Joke home to study.
-Pandora was horribly afraid of thunderstorms as a kid, and remains skittish of them as an adult, especially ones that happen at night. Sure, she'll put on a brave face and pretend she isn't scared, but if a big t

In case you were wondering what the deal is with why certain cases of 'theft' aren't taken seriously. Pretty much sums it all up with evidence.
Also, most of us know that realitysquared isn't exactly on everyone's 'top 10' list of admins on the internet... Most of the people who have dealt with that particular admin seem to always get the short end of the stick in most cases. Even I am not too fond of them... Just sayin'.
The short story: The reason why 90% of the reports for theft aren't really fixed is because apparently "alterations, edits, traces, and references are becoming regarded as acceptable by dA" -- meaning if someone does any of these things your report will probably be partially ignored if not completely.
Your best bet would be to contact the person directly through a note and ask them to rem

talent follow upso after a great many debates, here is what i am seeing.talent follow up3 years ago in Personal More Like This
there are 4 types of people responding.
1. the hard working artist agrees, they understand the time they have put into it, and in turn they are seeing the improvement they desire. they study the right things, like life, to understand how things work. they fight being completely self indulgent 100% of the time so they can better learn the skills they need.
2. the casual artist who doesnt really agree because they see somebody better, they are happy with what they can do and know they can be better, but they compare themselves to others too often.
3. the lazy fuck that thinks they must not be talented because they dont put in much time. and since they are so frustrated with seeing how great others are, they must not be talented while the other person is.
4. the people who see some little kid copy a drawing and imagine that they must be some kind of naturally born incredible artist. most of these people arent much beyond a part time

What if it did? Am I the only person who is seriously wishing for the apocalypse in my lifetime? (boy that sounds morbid and horrible XD) Despite the fact that I seem very nice and peppy and kind most of the time, you guys should understand that I am totally evil and morbid on the inside. <3 I honestly believe the world would be better off without human beings, and I also believe that we are severely over populated right now.... which, as awful as it sounds, is why I'm not absolutely horrified with any large natural disaster hits. On the outside I say "aww those poor people" and on the inside there's a little ebil mio going: *thumbs up* to a smaller population count.
