LOVE?lately ive been thinking a lot about love what is it? you hear corny sayings of what love is but i mean really why is it that the one you love can make your day amazing or make you the saddest you've ever been i really wish i knew all i do know is what love has done to me i thought i was in love 3 times in my life once when i was only about 12 she was a lovely girl but she wanted to date my best friend that "love" made me lose both the girl and my best friend the second time was when i was 16 it was with a boy ill leave his name out of this he didn't want to come out so we saw each other in secret for about a year before he told me it was a phase for him i lost yet another close friend with that "love" and the last one i never even met her or even heard her voice speak to me but that changed nothing just her personality was enough for me she left me just as quickly as we met and all of this makes me think about love and it makes me think we need to lose all these titles straight,gay,leLOVE?1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Day 2- Italy(Hetalia) as Sora(Kingdom Hearts)
Where do I begin? It all started when I accidentally met up with a friend XD I didn't know it was her it was really funny XD So I wondered a lot and bought some stuff and saw a pairing kiss!!!!!! (it was a yaoi pairing, and yes I do like yaoi, but only fluffy yaoi) It was adorable <3 then I saw a friend from school whom I call Chibi and her friend came cosplaying as IB. I brought the two to this booth in the artist gallery where a Mary and IB were drawing commissions (funny they were in an artist gallery XD). They talked and talked when another Mary and IB walked up. It felt like an IB gathering! XD Then Gary came out of no where XD The three, my friend, her friend, and I kept talking and talking XD It was so much fun!!!! They were the first friends I made at a con Then, after walking around, I met Cheshire-K from BanzaiPro!!!!! She was so sweet and ni

'Doctor Who': 15 facts you probably didn't knowWho better to reveal the secrets of Doctor Who than an actual doctor? Meet Doctor Who expert Dr. Piers D. Britton. He might sound a Doctor Who expert we just totally made up, but he’s a real person who wrote a book on Doctor Who titled TARDISbound and teaches a class on the iconic show at the University of Redlands in California (if you’re a hardcore Doctor Who fan who had to sit through dull college electives, you’re probably feeling a surge of envy for Redlands students right now). With Doctor Who‘s eagerly awaited 50th Anniversary special “Day of the Doctor” set to be unveiled tomorrow on BBC America (2:50 p.m. ET), Dr. Britton reveals 15 strange and fascinating Doctor Who facts that you probably did not know.'Doctor Who': 15 facts you probably didn't know1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Ramblings about 'internet fame'A lot of stuff has happened lately in life lately, and is has made me think about things, and about my perspective on it. One of those things, is the internet.Ramblings about 'internet fame'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you know, I'm a huge nerd. While as kid, I didn't had a computer at home, and I hated those damn machines because I wasn't able to work with them at all (so much fail T__T), I soon caught up when I got my first computer at age 14. And while most of my family expected me to end up as a hopeless internet addict, I soon started to learn myself how to program. The rest is history. With my 26th birthday, I also celebrated being a webprogrammer for 10 years already. Oh yeah, I'm getting old for sure.
The recent chain of events have caused me to think about the internet and it's role in life, however. When I first started out with art, I was only a little girl. Me, and both of my younger sisters, were all very creative. And we spend almost all of our time drawing at the kitchen table, while discussing about the characters we

Emotes are an easy way to express yourself and I'm going to teach you how to shade some.
Almost all emotes are sized to be 15x15 (unless you are making a larger one; tutorial by IceXDragon described here). You can use lots of programs to make them. I use MS Paint to make my emotes because I believe it's the easiest to control but you can use whatever you like.
An emote's outline will look like this (You can use it if you want. ) :
Here's what it looks like at a bigger scale.
Emotes should look circular like the one above. I would recommend this size for all emotes at a standard size level. At this stage, I like to mess with the emote to see what k

Can I also say something unrelated.. I think dA should really upgrade this journal thing with an easy image uploader function? so I don't have to upload in another database and imgsrc every photo in here. After all, having pictures in a journal is one of the few attractions and entitlement to a paid subscriber besides a customize journal, right?
Ok that aside D:
I used many unorthodox ways to do my costumes so hmm.. please don't laugh orz ...
So i bought a straw bowler hat from Daiso (for only SG$2), and then wrapped strips of paper around it until is all covered, like a half sphere but fuglier. Please use black coloured paper. And of course, please buy a hat accordingly to your head proportion. Don't repeat the mistake of making it too big like mine =_=
This is how the underside looks like. I arrowed a wire-comb there because it is how I secured this blob to the main wig late

Six Word Story Contest - 7 3Mo.Subs to be won!A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.Six Word Story Contest - 7 3Mo.Subs to be won!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
So getting to the point of this article, we are kickstarting this year with a six word story contest! We have some awesome prizes and hopefully enough freedom for you to enjoy yourselves too! Please support the contest and the article so that more can join in on the fun!
A little opinion...About the frontage thing... I think more than change the "popular" system, a new options set for the frontage are needed. This is not because I could be somewhat affected by the change, my pics keep appearing in FrontPage and the watchers are still following my work (and I thank you so much for that ) but because I saw a lot of people misplacing art and taking advantage of the new system, helping even more to create the odd idea of a popularity "goal/prize". I like the idea of the popular frontage because it works pretty much like a musical ranking and it was a tool to know public´s preferences: wich kind of concepts/ideas/colors/styles works better and like a test to know the effect of a specific work. Somewhat of democratic voice, that helps to know to the public a bit more.A little opinion...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before you ask, NO, I don't think that the goal of an artist is to be popular and I don't think that "popular=better" I saw both as different parameters that sometimes goes hand by hand and sometimes runs

Secondly, thank you to everyone who voted and commented on the latest poll! An overwhelming majority of you voted that yes, you would like to see a mentor program put into place and would like to participate, whether being a mentor, being mentored, or doing both. A lot of you also asked for more information and how it would work, which is what this journal is about. Please realize that nothing has been put into place yet and we are still not sure if we'll be able to pull this off, but we'll see how you guys all feel after reading this.

Take the time to realize this is aimed at commissioners, not artists. Yes, there are a ton of things artists fuck up on, trust me, I know. Oh, I know. However that alone could be a whole 'nother journal- which I might go ahead and do because I've had frustrating experiences with artists. When I'm talking about bad commissioners here though, I'm talking about the worst of the worst. Why on earth do I think a timid question 3 weeks after your commission was accepted asking about how it's going is "badgering"?
These are things I've witnessed, I'm talking about the horribly entitled, belittling, superior attitude commissioners! The ones that send you a billion notes and PMs asking when their art will be done, and rudely, when it's only been 3 days! So no, I'm not saying artists should step all over you- because trust me, some will. And by god, they sh
