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!

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 Tip2 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.

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).

Wacom tablet: common problems and solutionsIf you have a Wacom digital tablet, and you use it a lot, you may occasionally encounter unexpected problems. Have your brush dynamics stopped working?

1) The simplest thing to try is rebooting your computer (and also restart your drawing program.)
2) If any new software was recently installed, it might be causing a conflict. Did the symptoms begin on the same day the new software was installed? Try uninstalling it.
3) The next step is to uninstall and reinstall the Wacom drivers. Uninstall all drivers including drivers for previous tablets. Previous drivers can cause conflicts. Disconnect your tablet and reinstall the correct drivers. Be su

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 Kittelsen2 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

What! Whats Avatar Day you say?Avatar Day was established back in July 2007. It's a day for all of the Avatar the last airbender fans can come together and enjoy this phenomenal show and look foreword to what comes next. And with the legend of korra season 1 over, we can now enjoy a whole new chapter of the Avatar universe.What! Whats Avatar Day you say?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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.
With San Diego Comic Con just a few days away, there is going to be a bunch of New Avatar and Korra things going on at that time. For one, The legend of Korra
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.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Golden Age of IllustrationGolden Age of Illustration2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When in the second half of the 19th century newspapers and illustrated books became popular and widespread thanks to improvements in printing technology, many artists found their base to spread their skills. The official time span of the Golden Age of Illustration is said to be from 1880s to 1920s, but it varied a little bit between Europe and America.
While European illustrators were influenced mostly by the Pre-Raphaelites, Art Nouveau and Post-Impressionists (especially by Les Nabis, a group of Parisian artists), their American colleagues focused around Howard Pyle's Brandywine School of American Illustration in the Brandywine Valley.
Amongst the most popular artists of this time we find Arthur Rackham (UK), Howard Pyle (US), Ivan Bilibin (Russia), Theodor Kittelsen (Norway), Edmund Dulac (France), John Bauer (Sweden), Beatrix Potter (UK), N.C. Wyeth (US), Sulamith Wülfing (
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!2 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

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!
HOLY MOTHER FRUKER IM FREAKIN' OUT!Last night, 3 in the morning - I met what I think is the most amazing man ever... Cryaotic. [ Known as Cry ] or Ryan Terry. He was livestreaming last night and I told one of his friends BattleStar that I needed to go to bed and I had a question, while I waited - he said "How old are you?" And I replied with "15." And he said "Wow! You're way too beautiful to be that young." I giggled and said "You got a crush on me?" He said "Maaaaaaaaybeee." xD I felt flattered and just as I was falling asleep on my keyboard - they put me on the skype call to answer. I could hardly breathe, they were making fun of me for only saying hi - so I pretty much was just like "Uh - gah... SHUT UP I'M SLEEPY!" And then BattleStar was like "Breathe.. Breathe.." And so I was like "Alright... Well uhm.. Cry, who how would you saved uhm... Garry from dying in Ib?" And then he was like "SPOILERS! WE SPOILED IT FOR RUSS NOW HE'LL NEVER PLAY IT!" And I was like "OH GOD I'M SO SORRY D:" And then we got overHOLY MOTHER FRUKER IM FREAKIN' OUT!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
how to remove blue sketchy lines using photoshopi've always wonder about this^__^how to remove blue sketchy lines using photoshop4 years ago in Personal More Like This
for those of u who also wanted to know,here's the answer:
Begin to sketch with a light blue colored pencil. Do not worry about the sketchy lines; these will disappear later in the process.
Take the sketch and follow along the main lines of the drawing with a black felt-tip pen. These black lines will create the final line art drawing, if there are blue lines that are important to the drawing, these should be traced as well.
Scan the drawing onto your computer at a high resolution in RGB color format. Save the file as a .jpeg or .tiff file, ready to open in Adobe Photoshop.
Open the drawing file in Adobe Photoshop. Once open, change the layers panel to channels. This will show the channels of color in the drawing. Once open, delete the red and green channels in the file. The blue lines will disappear once this is completed.

YoungJustice-Season3Hey guys!YoungJustice-Season32 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
