Nintendo is on fire at the moment. A tech demo showed Pokemon Xandy being played on the 4DS, when you get hit by a Squirtle the 4DS squirts water at your face, when you get hit by a Charmander the 4DS burns your finger and when you get hit by a Pikachu the 4DS electric shock your fingers.

The killjoys of dAYou know these people. "Japan isn't that great." "Wolves aren't that cool." "Yaoi sucks." "(Popular thing) is overrated!" Etc. People who express these opinions loudly, not just because they feel that way, but out of spite for the people who do like these things.The killjoys of dA3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When dealing with them, remember this - a person who tries to bring you down for simply enjoying something is usually just attempting to prove that they are a better, more sophisticated person than you are. And in that very act is the proof that they aren't nearly as sophisticated and mature as they wish they were.
So fuck 'em. Like what you like, and don't change under pressure. Because in my eyes, giving up something you like just because it makes you look like a stereotype is weak - holding on to it and proving you're more than that is strong.
The genius of Miyazaki - Art HistoryIf you haven't heard his name, you must have heard about at least one of his creations. So, who's Miyazaki? It's easier to say who he's not.The genius of Miyazaki - Art History3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hayao Miyazaki was born on the 5th of January 1941 in Bunkyo, Tokyo, as a second of four sons. His father was a director in young Miyazaki's uncle's factory producing rudders for fighter planes - this is where Hayao became highly interested in aviation, which often appears in his films.
When Miyazaki was a little kid, his mother suffered from Pott's disease (sort of tuberculosis) and spent a few years in a hospital. Some says that a very similiar motif appearing in "Tonari no Totoro" ("My neighbour Totoro") was strongly inspired by that part of his life. Also, during his childhood, Miyazaki had to change his place of residence and switch schools several times, which influenced his films a lot, too.
Acts of Random Kindness!Hi there, fellow deviants!Acts of Random Kindness!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this small introductory journal, I'd like to explain an idea for a project I'm expanding upon.
So stay put, it's going to be an interesting read, I promise!
What are Acts of Random Kindness?
Acts of Random Projects, also known as ARKs is a project that was initially started by MzzAzn and builds upon the idea of "paying it forward".
Basically, each month you commit yourself to doing at least one or two (or more) random acts of kindness to spread positivity throughout the community.
This can be done by leaving small positive comments on pieces that haven't been commented on yet, by making art for someone, by giving points to donate towards someone's goal and in a various amount of other ways. The main idea is simply to do something constructive to make another person smile. It doesn't need to be a big gesture, it's the sentiment behind it that counts.
Why should I participate?

9 Reasons to PAINT WITH WATERCOLOR1. - Watercolors are FAST. They dry fast and you can finish a painting within one day. Given that you learn with every finished painting, you learn fast!9 Reasons to PAINT WITH WATERCOLOR3 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. - Watercolors don't stink. No dangerous chemical fumes, no headaches, usable around little children. Isn't that a wonderful reason!
3. - Watercolors are easy to clean. You don't make a lot of mess, and if you do, what water fouled, water will clean.
4. - There is no need for white paints. All the lightness is already given by your paper.
5. - Watercolors are practical to use outdoors. All your tools will fit into a small pocket.
6. - Watercolors are RELAXING. It must be the flooding, but whenever working with water and brush, your mind is set on ease.
7. - Watercolors bring transparent, delicate and ethereal results. Sometimes even a few well-lead brush strokes deliver sightly accomplishment.
8. - Watercolors are DIVERSE. They can be used in many very different ways and are ea
The Pixel Art CommunityWelcome to Pixel Art’s PE week! Firstly, I’d like to begin by discussing where we are in the Pixel Art community, where we came from and where we might head in the future.The Pixel Art Community3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why discuss the definition of Pixel Art?
Why is it so important to discuss the definition of Pixel Art? It becomes important not only when it comes time to update the category’s description for the sake of organisation and clarity, but also when confusion and misconceptions become increasingly common among those in the community itself. As Pixel Art grew from being primarily used for old computer and gaming systems, that could not handle much data and therefore not too many colours per palette, into something used with more contemporary technologies like Photoshop and MSPaint, Pixel Art itself was bound to reflect those changes. This change has become apparent in new styles, new techniques and questions around the need for the “old rules” of past

Hello everyone !
Lately, we saw quite a lot of fanarts, stamps and blog entries about France bashing, and Big Brother is really sad to see that so many people hate him. So we decided to cheer him up by organizing a contest to show everyone that there are people who do love him too !

Project Educate feat. Negative SpaceProject Educate feat. Negative SpaceProject Educate feat. Negative Space3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This feature of Typography showcases works that play with negative spac. This recurring theme in both Art and Design, challenges our mind in sometimes such a subtle manner that it is simply amazing. Using negative space for words while keeping the text readable is a trick that shows us how our minds are capable of so much more.
Thank you for reading!
Project Educate: Capturing MotionGetting shots of the world in motion is often considered quite a tricky art. However the times when I've managed that interesting motion capture have been pure fluke! But to set up with the intention of capturing motion especially where transport is concerned takes a little time and some helpful tips.Project Educate: Capturing Motion3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The most obvious and often forgotten technique that everybody knows but doesn't always put into practice is to position ahead of your targets intentioned path. Don't try and follow the moving object, predict a bit and get ready to capture it moving into frame. Otherwise you have the potential to be there..forever.
With regards to motorboats and people skiing or stunt cars, it's best to aim to shoot the action rather than the build up. Focus on getting that opportune moment!
It's vital when shooting action that you capture the motion for the final product. Setting sports mode on your camera will give you the chance to captu

PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the LegendDaily Deviations, or DDs . . . for some deviants, receiving one is the epitome of awesomesauce in the deviantART world. For others, they are a nice way to show off the work of lesser-known artists. Still others treat them as a special way to bring attention to great art that exemplifies works being done by a particular gallery or community.PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Perhaps because there are so many different ways of conceptualizing DDs, there are also many myths and misconceptions. I would like to address some of those myths by responding to the ones most frequently heard. Please note that these opinions are mine and reflect my experiences with the photomanipulation community, but perhaps they will be informative nevertheless.
Myth 1: DDs should always be perfect.
To many of us, the ideal Daily Deviation goes to an artist with amazing talent whose work draws you in and makes you think, "Wow, everyone needs to see this!" A DD should move you, inspire you, and provoke you to think, b
