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

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?

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!

I've recently noticed that while I'm still receiving many wonderful messages from watchers; some of those newer comments contain phrases that I find quite disconcerting.
While I enjoy receiving helpful critique, I must say; commentaries featuring dialogue such as 'the feels', doesn't really help my cause to improve, as a writer/and or stamp maker!
In addition, I find that I have a growing dislike for flattering comments, which don't include the commenter having added the work/s they've commented on, to th

Issue No. 2|Archives
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, mostly all about moments of epiphany and grace in an otherwise miserable and unhappy existence. The perfect explication of the common man's deepest truth; it's not easy to be here.
Unvarnished and brutal blunt force trauma underlined with hope, beauty, longing, and love.
Therein lies the power of his poet

Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise
Losing interest..?So I don't know what the deal has been lately but I just feel done with the whole furry fandom thing. Ever since Anthrocon ended I just feel completely burnt out on it...it's almost like I beat it. 0_0 Anthrocon was the big furcon that i've always wanted to attend eventually and I finally did, and on top of that I happened to win the dance comp. I had a wonderful time, without a doubt, but i've just had the strangest feeling after I left that place. I don't want to put on fursuits, I don't want to make fursuit videos, I don't really want to make fursuits at the moment, I just feel....done. I'm not a furry, and I never really have been, i'm just an artist who got caught up in the costumes and was sucked into the fandom it encompasses. I don't want to deal with the fandom, because I. Don't. Care. I don't care who said what, I don't care who's 'spirit animal' is who, I don't care what your problem is with that furry, i'm just an art student. That's it.

Save 2D animation with Steampunk?A Disney animation pal, James Lopez, has brought together a group of killer Disney veterans to create a 2D short called 'Hullabaloo'. It's currently set up as a short but with your support & donations, they can make more shorts, expand it into a web-series, a TV show or even a full-length movie. Hullabaloo is set in a Steampunk universe, stars female protagonists and action galore. The good news is that they are about to reach their financial goal on Indiegogo, but if they EXCEED it, it means they can make a second (and third) short! Once you see the trailer his has up, I promise, you will be blown away! Its just like a good Disney film because its the same people making it- but this one is for them, not the mouse! Go support, even the smallest donation helps show your support! (And I want them to stay busy, I might have a secret project coming up where I can use them when they are finished- gotta keep the band together!)Save 2D animation with Steampunk?10 months ago in Personal More Like This

INTRO TO CROCHETINTRO TO CROCHETINTRO TO CROCHET2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Materials you need, techniques to hold and use the crochet hook and main stitches you must know, all in one article for you to start crocheting right now!
Why crochet is that easy?
Unlike knitting, crochet uses just one tool (a single hook) rather than two (a pair of needles) and you work one yarn loop at a time; these two factors are enough to make it less complicated.
Do you want another reason to choose crochet?
Well, another advantage is that it’s easier to drop your project and pick it up again without losing your work; The stitches won’t slide off just like with the needles, therefore there’s no chance of a line of stitches unraveling before your eyes!
Crochet projects develop more quickly (this is ideal for beginners and impatient people)
What do you need to start?
You won't need many materials to get started. The basics you'll need consist of a croch
