You looked around, nothing was close to what it looked like at your house.. All there was were hummingbirds and eggs.. Everywhere. A voice in your head told you not to touch anything, but you couldn't resist the colored chocolate eggs and feathers. You were always the creative one at your school and in your family. You started to craft things with the feathers and placed an egg at the top. You were suck in this jungle cove. There was no possible way to climb it, because of your sprained ankle. You were running laps as you got run into by someone, you had forgotten about that pain, but when you started to walk you could feel it. So you sat on the grassy ground and looked around, you smiled. You were a loner most of the time, because you didn't like the things girls at you school did. You had gotten used to it and liked being alone. You're eyes started to soften as you saw a lick of golden sand cross your face. You drifted in
Short Poem.Well, I wrote this at like midnight Saturday, and with some urging from :iconTalentOfTheWolf:, here it is. Didn't intend it to be public, but oh well. Here's to all the rejects, the misfits, and every dork or dweeb out there who's ever felt lost in their own lives. This is, I suppose, my answer to every (pardon my language) asshat out there who makes someone's life miserable. All you see is how funny your jokes are, but this is what you're really doing. To everyone else, well... Don't be part of the problem. Be the solution.Short Poem.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Hello, one and all, to baark's second art contest! I'll be doing things a bit differently this time around, since this is more or less a minor contest being held in comparision to the far larger one I'm hoping to hold later on in the year.

This is Cloud's month!
So we're going to celebrate his up coming bday with another contest
This time the contest is going to be all about Cloud Strife :3 but mostly about Cloud's birthday which is on August 11th and again on August 19th.
(Yeap, he has two birthdays XD)
The name I picked for the theme is the same as last year's which is "Cloud's Birthday Gift" and is basically a contest where you can write or draw a fanart about what will Cloud receive on his birthday.
It can be anything you want :3
- a surprise party,
- a birthday card,
- a cake, etc.
If you want to make a Cloti thing out of it, then it's okay too but remember, you must stick to the birthday theme.
Only 1 entry per person.

Being Unscientific with SRSmithWho doesn't love science fiction?Being Unscientific with SRSmith11 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
If you just said "me," keep reading—you'll change your mind by the end of this article. (If you don't, I reserve the right to send a drone to your house. Isn't living in The Future great?!) As you'll see, science fiction goes beyond funny aliens and laser beams that conveniently miss. Some have even argued that, without science fiction, the Internet wouldn't have happened, and then we'd all be...outside right now. Quel horreur!
SRSmith has been a mainstay of the dA literature community for a long time, and he showcases other awesome dA writers on his flash fiction project,365tomorrows.
What is "science fiction"?
In my opinion, Science Fiction is any story that uses present or future science or technology as a key component, or where it provides the required underlying fabric on which the story is built. Future science or technology is speculative by nature, a

Dear DeviantARTI understand that changes are essential, whether it’s in term of design or usability. I’ve been using DeviantART for 6 years and a half and in these past years, DeviantART has changed a lot, and I embraced every change. I love changes! (except for the new hideous logo - of course) I love the new layout design and I love the way DeviantART introduced status posts and mentions, these are some really cool stuff.Dear DeviantART7 months ago in Personal More Like This
But I’m concerned about something. I’ve been waiting for deviantART to bring the footer back but I think I’ve waited long enough and I’m sure now, that there’s no way it’s coming back.
I repeat, changes are essential, but if these changes are limiting a user’s activity, you should rethink it.
Back when we had a footer, we had the ability to set “channels” and most users had the channel set to Daily Deviations… Now, what are Daily Deviations? Daily Deviations are FEATURED artworks, they change every 24 hours, a
Sharing is CaringSo as most of you know I posted a video tutorial of me making one of my dragons on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vCiPn7MUjw&context=C4b5df20ADvjVQa1PpcFNlI9Ovm88GNUagg5YVFu4EzQY19W7S2b8= It's been pretty cool seeing the dragons people have made from watching it. I think it might be fun to post them in a journal, just to see how different and unique they all turned out.Sharing is Caring3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know some of you have expressed concern that the video will just encourage copycats. Well, after over two years of posting online I have learned a few things. First, imitation and copying is inevitable. It sucks but it IS going to happen at some point if your work becomes popular enough. I do have copycats, and I do keep an eye on them. I can't really do much about them, unless they blatantly copy a design. So I've learned to live with it. I appear to have a very protective fanbase, as I am constantly alerted by you good people when anyone might be copying me. I like to think that most people can figure out

Shortbread - sort of like marmite, you either hate it or love it. I have to be in the mood for it - but it is quite lovely. Generally, it originates from Scotland. Walkers Shortbread is actually Scotlands largest food exporter! Shortbread is fairly simple to make and aside from burning it, not much can go wrong. So if you've not tried making it before (or eating it) start now!

Everywhere I turn it's there waiting.
Pretending it isn't there doesn't seem to work anymore.
Reasoning it away only works for so long.
Excuses for it are running out.
I may not be able to find my way out soon.
Only time will tell.
Now all I can do is try, before it's too late.
I know it is eating me from inside out.
Somewhere there is an escape.
Keep on moving forward.
Lying to myself cannot continue.
Leaving it all behind is not an option.
I must face it, must move forward.
Now or never.
Got to keep moving forward.
Maybe I'll get out in time.
Everything will change, I will change.

Structuring a Story: Framing devices
Welcome to another :iconpocketstories: workshop! We're glad you could make it! This month's workshop will focus on framing devices; what they are, how we can use them, and why we should use them.
What’s a framing device?
So this links into the way we structure our stories, and also into the narrative. Instead of a story using a straight forward omniscient narrator (the most common frame) we can use other methods to tell the story.
Someone telling the story.
This could be someone telling the story to children, around a campfire, anything. The key is to make the story teller a character, but without this character actually impacting on the story that’s being told.
This is a great way to tell a story from a specific person’s perspective, and allows for heavy characterisation.

I'm a self-taught artist and you?It has been over 12 years since I started drawing Manga. At age around 10/11 I had no Internet connection, no tutorials, no one who gave me tips.I'm a self-taught artist and you?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I started with copying Anime characters from magazines and other Manga/Anime like "Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne", "Sailor Moon", "Digimon", "Pokemon" or "Card Captor Sakura". Later, I developed my own style. I only shew my drawings to my classmates and friends but I never thought of showing them to the world like today. I tried to send some drawings to Anime magazines, but they didn't print them.
Sometimes, I miss the old times... just drawing for myself without any pressure and keeping them for myself.
But without art communities, my skills wouldn't be where they are today. Many friends and watchers helped me. And reading all those cute comments motivates me to draw more and more!
But it was a very long way. Drawing is a long process: You can't become a master in one day. Sometimes, I have the feeling that today's beginners are impatient. They hav
