The essentials of Macro photography.Hi, deviants! This week is Community week, and I am giving my best to introduce some essential tips concerning macro photography.The essentials of Macro photography.2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But first of all: What is macro photography?
Macro photography - what is it about?
Wikipedia tells us things like "extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size" (Source: Wikipedia.org)
But is that really all that matters? It is a common fact that many people believe that macro photography is photography which refers to life size

In the event of this group's two week anniversary I thought that it was time for a competition in order to get this group started properly!
:iconpervycielCiel is excited!)
The theme of the competition is going to beee, wait for it, music (I were planning to come up with some awesome and catchy name, but my creative abilities just died, so music it is)!
You are supposed to chose a song (it could be any type of song from any genre), and the title of this song has to be the title of your entry- and your submission has to be inspired by that song! If any of that was unclear, just send me a note or leave a comment!

And I am LAUNCHING AN INVADER ZIM SECRET SANTA! >8D IZSS!!
I am going to host a Secret Santa for all of you in the IZ fandom out there! : D
What is a Secret Santa?
A secret santa is a "tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift" however in this case the "gift" will be a drawing.
All of you who sign up for the Secret Santa will be randomly assigned someone to draw a gift for, and you also will be receiving a gift from someone.
How does it work and how do I sign up?
1. In order to be in this Secret Santa you need to feature this journal, spread the news so we can get as many people as possible.
2. When you join you must tell me WHAT you want your Secret Santa to draw for example you can say "I'd like a drawing of my character ____ doing ____" or "I'd lik

If you own a Venasion oc, Please read. I would also like it if everyone would read through this all and maybe you'll seem interested in an oc.

they can have three eye styles. an Irken esque a regular round pupil, or a cat like slit.

Want me to make you an OC? (open for watchers)Edit: thanks for the overwhelming number of requests! ^^ I have to highlight some things.Want me to make you an OC? (open for watchers)3 months ago in Personal More Like This
1) this is something I do in my free time. It is not a top priority.
2) DO NOT send me a note about the progress of your request. I will not answer it. And I will likely ignore your request altogether.
Reminder that you asking about a request is very rude and basically insults me cause you think you are somehow entitled to my limited free time just cause you filled out a small form in this journal.
3) I am doing these in random order, and NOT ALL OF THEM.
4) do not request existing characters.
have a nice day ♥
End of edit.
I haven't done this since 2012 or so, but I will offer free custom OCs for fun again ♥
BUT PLEASE. Let me know if the design I make for you is not going to be used.
I would rather keep the design rather than give it away and let it gather dust forever. That's what made me stop last time...it was

Stop harassing the admins, particularly realitysquared. Seriously.
Yeah, you may be mad about it but knock it off.
Going off and being a jerk to someone isn't going to solve the problem at all. So please, stop it.
Don't spam his page and call him names.
Sure, I don't really like him either but there's no reason to go apeshit at him.
He's not going to give you the time of day, trust me. And if he does chances are you won't like what he has to say anyway.
There's other admins to talk to who would most likely be willing to actually listen and talk back.
In light of that, the fact that an admin actually did come forth and display some interest in the subject [fourteenthstar] is kind of interesting, and according to her she'll be talking to the other side mods and staff about the situation with theft. You can read the conversation(s) wit

About Artists on Writers
Writers will always find inspiration in the visions of artists, always feeling compelled to tell the stories behind the moments captured in artists’ unforgettable images,
Artists will always find inspiration in the words of writers, always feeling compelled to lend visual reality and habitat to the characters described in the scribe’s haunting words.
If the severely acne-scarred face and coarse exterior brought on by his alcoholic and depressed life was the book cover of his being, then Charles was the ultimate book that could not be judged by its cover. The exquisite collection that was this everyman artist’s art consisted of thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels—mostly all wrenchingly autobiographical, mos

OMG uncle rick confirmed that he wrote a kane and percy crossover!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!! :iconcryingrainbowsplz:
So, yes, it's true. As announced today in Publisher's Weekly Children's Bookshelf, I have written a crossover story featuring Carter Kane and Percy Jackson. The story is called "The Son of Sobek."
This is something fans have been asking me to do for years, but why this story and why now? My publisher Disney-Hyperion was looking for something fun to add to the paperback version of The Serpent's Shadow, which comes out May 7 -- something to encourage folks who haven't yet tried the Kane Chronicles to pick up the series. I decided what the heck. Let's throw Carter and Percy together in a Greek-Egyptian dilemma and see what happens. The result was SO much fun to write.
If you buy the paperback version of Serpent's Shadow on May 7, "The Son of Sobek" will be at the end of the book, no extra charge.
CEA Blog: How to Submit an Abuse ReportHi deviants!CEA Blog: How to Submit an Abuse Report3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today I would like to address an issue that unfortunately happens quite often in abuse reports filed to our support center. We've had guides and articles written about this in the past but we felt it was time for a refresher!
So what is an "Abuse Report"?
The Abuse Report category is where a deviant would file their ticket under if they are being harassed or was witness to someone else being harassed out there in our community. Not knowing where to go or what to do when this happens understandably only adds to the problem!
Before anything else, please remember that abuse reports are only for the most severe of harassment issues. Things like disagreements, debates, general rudeness one might experience due to the anonymity of the internet or personal drama you may have with another deviant are some minor issues that can be easily handled by taking advantage of our Hide and
