UPDATE 8 - As of Saturday, November 17, 2012, we are at 125,125 points, with only 34,875 points left to go! I was able to purchase 2,000 points a moment ago to put directly into the pool myself. My original intent was to get 8,000, but I ended up working less than I expected this week and was unable to, but as of my next paycheck (in two weeks), I will be able to purchase 8,000! That will leave us with 26,875. And after TimberClipse's AWESOME point doubler, like the one that helped out and did so amazingly earlier in the year, that will be another 8,000, leaving us with only 18,875! And his doubler is already halfway full with much thanks to rainylake for immediately putting 2,000 points in
Disability Awareness Day :: Braille Art FeatureToday is Disability Awareness Day. It offers us a chance to promote awareness and understanding, as well as a moment to reflect on the lives of individuals living with a disability, and what those of us blessed with able bodies can do to assist.Disability Awareness Day :: Braille Art Feature3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There are a number of articles coming to you from CVs and members alike aiming to spread awareness on the matter, so I won't double up on their efforts. But I want to take a moment to reiterate that not all disabilities are visible. Lately I've heard a lot of stories from people using disabled parking being abused by passers by, either verbally or via a note left on their dash, for not 'looking' disabled. It's a common theme. People will tend to judge the heath of another by how they look, but it is worth remembering that not all sick people look sick. The vast majority of disabilities are those you cannot see by looking at a person.
Some people live with chronic pain. Ot

Naruto and Hinata: Taoist Legacy
Where did it come from?
Where does it go?
And what does this have to do with Hinata?
The origins of the Byakugan in the Naruto storyline remain shrouded in mystery. According to Kakashi, the Byakugan is said to have predated the Sharingan, but there just exist too few details to give any accurate guess to the true origins of the Byakugan within Naruto.
The Byakugan, conceptually, originates with the largely Chinese philosophy/religion of Taoism.
Taoism and Budhism historically have separate origins but date back to very similar time periods (with some estimates having Taoism predate Budhism by a few hundred years - though the Indian concept of Budhism would not enter Ch
PE: The Basics of Giving CritiqueA lot of people seem to think that giving a critique requires you to have an art degree and a lifetime of experience. This is merely an excuse barrier to stop you from trusting yourself in the art of delivering a fine critique. Today's Project Educate guide is an aid to help you consider the basics of critique, and in particular critique on dA.PE: The Basics of Giving Critique4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This article has been written as a guideline overview only and one persons advice. There are hundreds of existing "how to" guides for critique already existing on dA, so if this one doesn't suit you, take a browse and see what else you can find!
The key rules to critique
1. Keep in mind you are writing a CRITIQUE not a CRITICISM. Be wary of your word choices and make sure you keep in mind you are helping the artist for improvement. Be Constructive, not Destructive.
2. Consider you audience- who is the artist reading this critique? How may they react to your words? Be wary of patronising the person you are c
PE: Finding Critique on dAWhere to find Critique on deviantART?PE: Finding Critique on dA4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So, you just uploaded your latest image/writing onto deviantART and featured it in your gallery with a slight satisfaction you have achieved something. Fantastic, that is step one and now you can sit back and watch everyone's responses come pouring in and showing you everything you need to do to make your work even more fabulous.
The fact is; getting someone to critique your work isn't as easy as that. If you want critique, you need to seek critique and put in the good effort to get it. It won't always work, no plan is fool proof, but here are some places and advice that could help you find the feedback you desire. Not every place on this list will be your cup of tea, but try and see what works for you.
Step one: Make sure people know you want a critique!
If you are a subscriber, make use of the critique function that deviantART provides. You can do this my selecting "Request Critiques" when submitting an

and then this...
If you have the guts I didn't, to watch the whole video,
then even if you stopped halfway, you'll see the eyes of a raccoon dog, skinned alive, stare into the camera, while clinging to its hopeless life.
For clarification, I am not in anyway a supporter nor am I affiliated with PETA.
So if PETA is another concern and problem, then it's just another one we'll have to fix.
And yes, this specific one is staged, but my point isn't that this is how people skin animals, it's that these animals are dying REGARDLESS of the cause and reason behind it.
I'm not one of those spokespersons; who comes to your school or town, to make you sit as I try to make a serious topic into something fun and enjoyable to my audience.
I'm not hear to entertain you.

About Daily Deviations.In light of the Daily Deviation I gave today, and the commotion it caused, I feel the need to voice my opinion on Daily Deviations.About Daily Deviations.5 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Some people feel that because the rain animation in the DD does not loop properly, it is not DD worthy. But what actually makes a deviation DD worthy? Amazing perfection? How boring would the world be if it were perfect? There would be no more room for improvement!
I have recieved a few questions as to why I featured it. And I'm going to give my answer here.
If I ONLY featured perfect deviations, how on earth would that motivate the rest of the community to improve? When I feature, I aim to show unique and interesting deviations that will inspire other people who will see it. With the looping problem in the deviation I featured today, other people will see this and think "Hey, I could fix that", and take it upon themselves to make their own. And this is how advancements are made.
You may all look at me and think "Wow, you're such a crappy GM, they should g

Anansi Character InterviewAnansi Character Interview 2 weeks ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1: What inspired your Spider-OC's design and how?
It's funny... I pretty much ran through a like several different designs before settling on the one that I have now. I actually found inspiration looking at different types of spiders in the encyclopedia (yes, lol) and internet and kind of took elements from each one that I liked.
It's funny because even though he is a spider base character... He's not meant to be. I'll explain later.
I also decided to use a nanotechnology-based suit because of the design potential and always been a big fan of the symbiotes from Spiderman.
2: What inspired your Spider-OC's Normal life and personality. how?
Anansi is an asshole. Much like the folklore, he lives to make it hard for people. Shit, I am an ass too. Growing up I was bit of a troublemaker, even into my older age and I kind of put that same personality on this character because those days help me build because I am now today. I wanted to take a story of a criminal by circumstance an
