Thursday: Acronym Contest! It's another Thursday! Or as we call it,Thursday: Acronym Contest!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Why am I bringing up sad dogs in the Middle East, you ask? It's all part of this week's contest!
This week, we're having an acronym contest! Your task is to spell out one or more of these words, and use each letter as the first letter to create a sentence. Your words should, generally, make a full sentence instead of a string of nonsense.
The three words are:
Take my example above as inspiration for how these should be set up. You may choose to spell out one, two, or all three acronyms!
We'll choose six winners, two for each acronym, who will receive a mystery deviantWEAR t-shirt and deviantART stickers. These are shirts that are no longer available in the store!
Winners will b
My Best Motivational TipWhen I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.My Best Motivational Tip4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.
So here's what I think of.
"Michael Bay wants me to fail."
Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.
Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.

Foreword by techgnotic
As usual, the number of submissions of candidate stories and poems for a special competition far exceeded the wildest expectations of the depthRADIUS editors and Clive Barker’s associates. The Master Fantasist was presented with the almost overwhelming Herculean task of choosing the narrative explication he thought best captured his “Men of the City” painting.
Clive has chosen TJBrown’s “Rush Hour” as best complement for “Men of the City.”
very sad news everyone.this is the day we have all wished would never happened to this fandom. Next Monday is the day we wished would never come. Next Monday is going to be the worst day. We are all going to relive something that all of us have hoped would never happen again. So next Monday on nickelodeon at 5:00pm and then again for some reason at 7:00, DO NOT WATCH THE LAST AIRBENDER MOVIE AT ALL! Instead, why don't you watch regular show then adventure time on cartoon network at that time. Or better yet, why don't you get up from your chair at 5:00 pm next Monday and reply slam your head against the wall until all you can see is blackness. That would be better then going thru that again. Or maybe just watch regular show then adventure time on cartoon network, that maybe for the best.very sad news everyone.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Quality entries are accepted from even non-DP artists. These can be B/W manga pieces or full color artwork. Collaboration books will have their own deadlines. Each book has a theme or series. All involved artists will be given 5+ copies of the book for free, depending on what they submit (shipping not included). Key artists that put in more than 25% of the book will be given a cut of the sales. Collaboration books are mostly for promoting artists, but with the free copies it'd be easy to make some money as well. Additional copies can be purchased at artist price (email for details).

YoungJustice-Season3Hey guys!YoungJustice-Season33 years ago in Personal More Like This
So even though the final episode of the season aired on Saturday and all may seem lost, the YJ fandom is still going to try just as hard (maybe even harder!) to let Cartoon Network keep the show alive.
If you want to stay updated on what you can do to help, you can join the group YoungJustice-Season3 and follow the tumblr blog HelpSaveOurHeroes (http://helpsaveourheroes.tumblr.com/) to stay updated on other fandom projects, like weekly twitter campaigns, to help save both YJ and GL:TAS.
Also, I think the best thing you can do right now, if you're able to, is to buy merchandise! Cartoon Network is cancelling YJ and GL:TAS because it's not profiting enough off of them, so purchasing episodes and the companion comics will show the network that it can make money from these shows.
And if you want to write to Cartoon Network, please remember to keep it civil and polite.
This is no time for any of us to give up! I have faith that we can save our show, but we all need to d
The Yogscast, life and Lelatte!It's been a fair while since my last entry - so - Here's a quick update!The Yogscast, life and Lelatte!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As some may know I was employed by the Yogscast as a full time artist back in November. I'm super chuffed to be working with these guys and totally cannot wait to show you all what we've been working on! 2014 is going to be a crazy year!
This does however mean that I have now quit freelancing and will no longer be taking on any commissions, indefinitely. Sorry guys! :3
On top of the new job I moved into my own shiny apartment, sold out of Lelatte Issue Zero & produced a new Yogscast Sips print with Gametee! http://www.gametee.co.uk/
So, a super busy end to the year but a faaaantastic one at that! Lelatte is now back to it's normal weekly update for those wondering. No more pesky breaks!
Again, thanks so much for all your awesome comments here on DA! I appreciate them so much, even if I don't always have time to reply! : D
So, Happy New year guys and I hope we all have a smashing 2014!

edit 23.01.09 Made 34 to be less limited, you could do a drawing with coffee or strong tea or any sort of food stuffs.
edit 05.01.09 Made 39 a drawing-task rather than a photomanipulation task. Changed 83 so that there would be more lifedrawing and there was already a collage-task anyway.
edit 04.01.09 replaced 2, 3 and 95. And again reminding that this exists. 8D Please keep linking me if you're doing any of these. ALSO IT IS EMBARRASING but after keeping this alive for two years, I finally actually started it myself. Keep on trucking y'all, I will try as well.

Dreamy Theodor KittelsenAs I've previously promised, after the articles about Sulamith Wülfing and about John Bauer, the time comes for an article about Theodor Kittelsen.Dreamy Theodor Kittelsen3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
...Theodor Severin Kittelsen, being a great representant of the Golden Age of Illustration, is one of the countless artists who received more attention and appreciation a long time after their death. I don't say "proper attention", it's still far from it.
His depictions of Scandinavian folklore creatures are said to be equally cannon to the trolls portrayed by the definitely more famous John Bauer. But, unlike Bauer, Kittelsen didn't focus just around trolls (which are, you must admit that, most of Bauer's creations - although his sudden death at young age is

I hope everyone is continuing to enjoy the show. If you aren't, I hope you will be remain patient, and open-minded about the changes in direction, the member line-up, and the broadcast schedule. YOUNG JUSTICE is a unique show. It's really like nothing that has ever been done before, produced by a team that cares very deeply about the property, the characters, and the fans (After all, we are fans!). Greg, and Brandon have done a phenomenal job, along with the rest of the YJ crew (both here, and at the overseas animation studios).
It's very rare that I step up to speak out on anything here. In my minor role as an assistant character designer on the YJ show, I've felt that any voices that should be heard in an official capacity belong to the senior officers steering the ship (Register, Bastian, Weisman, Vietti, Wilcox, and Bourassa).

Calm Yo Tits!All right, there’s much buzz on tumblr and on here concerning the new pictures of Asami and Mako together, and it’s about time we have a proper venue to discuss our FEELS rather than crowd the profile page.Calm Yo Tits!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First thing we want to say is this:
Everything’s five by five, people. We all knew there’d be a love triangle and these pictures do not suggest end-game or even a relationship for that matter. And even if that’s the case, people need not resort to abandoning ship or throwing hate at Asami and the Masami ship. We here at Makorra do not endorse slander or shipping wars. PERIOD.
Keeping that in mind, everyone feel free to share your thoughts on love triangles or talk about how smoking hot Asami is or how cute Mako looks while blushing or how much we want Korra and Asami to be besties or how awesome Bolin is, just ’cause or gush about how much you love Makorra 5ever and always. ^__^
Stay classy, Makorrians. <3

Starting this Monday, July 9th, Nicktoons will be showing a special called Korra: Making of a Legend. This special, which will air every weeknight at 9pm (until July 20th), will include reruns of all 12 episodes from the first season of The Legend of Korra in a "creators' cut" format, with commentary from Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, offering "insight into the creation of the stunning imagery, mythology and storyline" of the series. And we will be uploading videos from YouTube day by day for people who do not have Nicktoons.

I quit my job.I had to. Being stuck in retail hell for years was getting to me. There's only so many times you can deal with disrespectful self-entitled customers daily, especially when you have personal goals and aspirations that have nothing to do with retail or the success of the business you're working so hard for. (with little acknowledgement.) It's not that I never put my heart into my job -- I even made some great friends there. It's just, when you see so many of your other friends, even family members doing seriously cool things with their talents... it eats at you like you're staring at your own death-clock.I quit my job.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I haven't been one to take risks in the past, so the thought of cutting off my only source of income wasn't exactly on the forefront of my thoughts. But, I was given an opportunity with a soon-to-be startup studio that a bunch of friends of mine are already apart of. I came on board this project earlier this year, but only slightly part-time. On my days off from my retail job, I would p
