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.3 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

Sorry, I will be checking tomorrow the entries because today is my Birthday and I will be going out for dinner to celebrate with my family.
Also I would like to compensate because I know most of you don't have the same time as me and some work or sleep.
So considering that I will just extend it a few hours to compensate and that you can have a bit more time to relax, have breakfast, eat, you know (?)
I leave here the new countdown so ignore the one below!
Thank you all for the birthday wishes!
I'm quite happy with the results of this contest so I would be maybe making another one soon!

Draw my Panda and Dzrtbtrfly15's Cat together.
They can be doing anything, as long as they're together! They are a couple, so yes they can kiss, hug, etc.
Things to note
Cat is tan! (not black, but tan! She is Native American/Korean)
Panda loves all things cute and frilly, but she doesn't really like wearing pink.
Cat is into punk style clothing, but she can dress cute too!
The color in their hair is optional. If it clashes with your art, you don't have to include it.
They both enjoy playing video games, reading, drawing; Cat loves coffee and tea, while Panda really enjoys sweets!
The Batman Movie Ranking, Pt. IPlease note, ladies and gentlemen, that this will include every notable animated movie... that I've seen.

13) Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman
Ladies and gentlemen, people will often cite Batman & Robin as the worst of the bunch... and some more recently have made it good sport to tear The Dark Knight Rises a new asshole every time someone mentions it. But you know what? I'm going to put my foot down and say it.
At least they had memorable qualities.
The Dark Knight Rises had a thunderous soundtrack. Batman & Robin had hammy acting and candy-colourful stage design. Rises had Bane, whose every line is worth solid gold. B&R had AHnuld chewing scenery with ice puns and having a blast, as well as ending the movie with an awesomely, AHnuld appropriate

YJ: FF: Danger of LightThe first memory i could always recall before all the others was of her face. The sadness and rage in it, then there was the fire. Her glowing green eyes burned for something, that I did not know of. At least not at that time. She was beautiful, even with the blood on her face. I don't know why, but I trusted her, I never trusted anyone like I trusted her.YJ: FF: Danger of Light3 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
She was a storm, bring disaster, rage, and death. I was the calm before her storm, and the rainbow after. We were perfect together, the perfect team.
We had complete balance, and were completely in sync.
She was the first person who I truly cared about that left me, and it was all my fault.
I do remember things before her though. I remember him.
He was different from her. He was different from the people in white as well. The fire in his eyes had been ripped from him. I wish I could of figured out why.
He always smiled at me, the fire slightly sparking, but never staying. He always was calming, he talked to me about the world as he a
GDA PE Week 2013 Day 3So I'm swapping the order of things, today will be intro to some programs for game development. Art features, a bit of Q/A (possibly) and some fun stuff will be tomorrow and friday!GDA PE Week 2013 Day 32 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The tools of the trade
Is a massive list, I mean massive. There are so many programs you can use to achieve the art you want for Game Development, it can be overwhelming to narrow it down on some you think you'd be good at using. or excel at learning. Keep one thing in mind when it comes to choosing a program to use: It's just a tool.
Period. The tool doesn't make the artist, it never has. We've seen remarkable work come from the most unlikely places and why should Game Dev. art be any different in that regard?
You'll find people get into battles a lot claiming the tool they use is the best for what they are doing, but that's just it: it is best for them. It may not be what you like, but that doesn't mean you're wrong or you can't achieve similar results. So

I'm talking about suicide.
Already some of you are like "what are you talking about?" or "oh man, Wani's finally gonna do it! ;o; "
No, it's none of that. I gave that up long ago and I am not even one percent close to even suggesting that idea, especially after what happened...
In short, last June, after meeting :iconGizzyFox:, I met with two friends of hers; Gary Torres and James Ramirez(no relation).
These two guys were pretty weird when I first met them after some pretty embarrasing Skype sessions and chatting on Tumblr but soon enough, they were like the coolest dudes I ever met.
I don't think I ever met two dudes who I can completely relate to. 030
Behind the scenes, Gary and James had a "thing" going on and as you may have guessed, they were together for a short time. UwU

You smirked as your opponent fell to their knees. You had taken down yet another shinigami. "Too bad, you were too weak for me. I might not be considered an espada, but my power surpasses them." The shinigami stared at you, and with their last breath said, "You're... a good arrancar... at heart..." They then died. Your eyes widened, good arrancar? At heart? You turned around, sheathing your zanpakutō, z/n, and scoffed, "Arrancars don't have hearts." With that, you left the battlefield. You killed over 10 shinigami there in 20 minutes.
"Sheesh~ I've gotten sleepy. I guess it's time to go home and report to Aizen. This war will go by in a breeze." You opened a garganta and stepped in. You were ready to leave this pitiful world. You were glad that you had died and became a hollow. You still hadn't extracted your revenge th

Bullying + my experiencesHelloBullying + my experiences2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wanted to take the time to write about bullying and what I have been through, and also how I dealed with it.
Unfortunately bullying is very common. You are not alone about being bullied. It happens to most of us.
People bully you because of how you look like, or that you have something that they don't have, maybe that you are good at something they're not. It can also be that they are jealous and just want to put you down to feel better about themselves.
I was being bullied around 3rd grade to 5th grade I think. Which was after my best friend switched class. There was this girl who used to call me mean words and also talk behind my back. There was one day when she turned all the girls in my class against me. I think why she was mean to me is that I am very sensitive, if someone call me something I will easily get upset. And I was young back then so I was almost about to cry. Of course I told my parents about it and they just told me to ignore her. I did that and tried not to

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.
