An interesting idea I had as I was looking through my comments.
500 points being given.
If you don't really care about entering, just favorite this journal to be entered in to win 100 points.
The main idea is to make me laugh by using the simple doge meme on one of my photographs. It can be any of them; the choice is yours but it must follow certain guidelines.
Please post it to your sta.sh and post it on this journal.
Be original. (You can look to comments from inspiration but don't completely take the ideas there.)
If you have no idea what the shibe/doge meme is. Take this photo for example.
These photos utilize the the comic sans font, usually rainbow colors and text of varying sizes. Th

I finally watched FROZEN!!!! YAY!!!And now I can finally use the Internet safely without fear of spoilers. I am so happy right now. I had to avoid the Internet for like a MONTH till the movie was released here. *siggghhhh* Life is good and normal again.I finally watched FROZEN!!!! YAY!!!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
As for the film itself, and I promise not to go into spoiler territory, I can at least say I wasn't disappointed. I mean, I knew going in that I wasn't going to find it half as enchanting as the hype train was saying it is, but I'm happy to report I don't hate it. I did not find it irksome. Which is amazing news for me after how irksome and sinister I found Tangled. *shivers*
If I didn't hold back on my opinion here, and hold onto your seats because it's going to be an unpopular one (don't say I didn't warn your fragile feelings), I'd say Frozen is a benign movie for babies. And really, it made me wish I had a little niece I could take to see it and buy her the merchandise and watch her tiny eyes light up when Elsa builds her ice fortress. Bu
About my last Journal...So I posted a few days ago that I finally saw Disney's Frozen and I briefly stated that I thought it was okay.About my last Journal...10 months ago in Personal More Like This
It must have come across that I hated the film, or even attacked the film, because so many of you wrote me essay-length rebuttals in the Comments. I never, in my wildest dreams, expected such an overwhelming response from you guys. I think I still have 17 Comments I haven't replied to yet, most, if not all, consisting of paragraphs and paragraphs of in-depth analyses of the film telling me exactly why Frozen is just the best tootin' thing since sliced cheese despite what you see as its flaws.
I'm writing this Journal for two reasons. First reason is because I'm actually genuinely surprised how passionate you folks are about this flick, lovers and haters alike. When I posted a while back that I thought ParaNorman was okay, nobody made a peep. I was expecting the same response here. I'd have been a bit more car

¿Que son las Llamas?
Las Llamas tienen una historia muy curiosa: cada primer día de Abril dA siempre realiza algun tipo de broma para los usuarios cambiando o agregando algo en los perfiles. Pues bien el 1 Abril de 2010 aparecierón las Llamas como broma de aquel día. Pero gustarón tanto a la comunidad que decidierón dejarlas de forma permanenten. Son insignias que los usuarios suelen regalarse unos a otros por diversos motivos: por diversión, un pequeño regalo por agradecimiento o felicitación, para demostrar que les gusta el arte de alguna otra persona, etc. Pero solo se permite regalar una Llama por usuario.

Concept vs Visual AestheticRecently, on my piece I got into an interesting discussion that I find would be of importance to some of my watchers, despite the person being helpless in said discussion and just looking to waste their time.Concept vs Visual Aesthetic7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Basically, I encountered yet another person who cannot grasp the difference between concept and visual aesthetic, and is quick to brand any widespread concept as similar to some popular piece of media that utilized such a concept.
I personally define visual aesthetic in concept art as series of image elements, art techniques and stylistic patterns that unify an array of objects in art into a single, wholesome, stand-out microcosm which is recognized by these elements. It's what allows us to relate a piece of art to a certain time period ("that's so 80's!"), a culture ("typically oriental stuff!") or movement ("absolutely baroque!").
A concept, on the other hand, is a concept – an idea made into flesh. The concept might have a definitive visual aesthe
Feature my Favorite Avatar cosplayers in dAJust back from Armadeggon, I saw so many amazing cosplays that made me excited.Feature my Favorite Avatar cosplayers in dA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love cosplay for quite some time, I think cosplay is also a kind of fanart in a more realistic from.
I always feel that cosplay deserve more attention and favorite in dA,
So here I'd like to feature some of my personal favorite Avatar cosplayers with their best cos photos.
I know there are lots of amazing Avatar cosplay out there, but I can't collect them all.
The cosplayers I featured here should have their own dA account and have at least 3 pieces photoshots of the chatarcter in their gallery. I love their works not only because they represent the appearance well, but also I saw the spirit of the characters.
More than welcome to check their homepage by click their icon/Avatar.

How to Make 2D Tile sets for games Part 1 + MoreHey everyone!How to Make 2D Tile sets for games Part 1 + More1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I just uploaded a new tutorial, the first in the series, all about making 2D tiles and tile sets for games!
Things covered in this episode:
- The anatomy of a basic tileset
- Setting up and using Photoshop's grid system for making tiles
- Using Photoshop's Offset filter to make tiles seamless
- Adapting a tiling texture into a tileset
- Some results of a finished basic tileset
- Thoughts and some opinions!
- I forgot to master the audio. Sorry if I sound just a tad muffly!

Why many artists suck at marketingWell. I can at least say that the average artist's mentality towards marketing never ceases to amaze me.Why many artists suck at marketing11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Either the guys here are young and naive --that's what I hope it is, since still being pure hearted in a time like this is good-- or they are willingly unaware of what's happening around them.
It all started with a question that came to my mind.
Would people be willing to pay a few point in exchange for a feature on a busy page?
How I got to the idea?
Well, I'm doing contests and giveaways now and then. Things for the community, you'd say. To get some feedback, feature stuff, promoting unknown artists, and that kind of stuff. In order to host those contests and giveaways I often need DeviantArt points. Now, I do get a lot of them by sheer donation. But that always seemed a bit empty to me. So I thought up some kind of idea. To give beginning artists the chance to get featured, and make use of the traffic on my page, in order to get their work viewed by people all over the website. S

Where the idea came from:
In the past I was teaching teens and children in Poland to draw. But it was different, traditional and I didn't use tutorials to teach (just fist :iconimveryhappyplz:. Then I went where they paid me more, to the journals, publishing houses etc. And guess what. I ended up on DA doing commissions and I always felt very comfortable here, that comfortable that I decided to share my knownledge in some teaching groups. But sadly non of them was the group I was looking for:
Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is one of my favourite games of all time, surpassed only by Morrowind, and I've been planning for a long time to put together a feature with original artwork. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since almost all Oblivion-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
Oblivion is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2006. The central plot revolves around the efforts to thwart the fanatical cult Mythic Dawn that plans to open the gates to the demonic realm of Oblivion. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are quest lines for several guilds, and many side missions. Despite being less diversified and immersive than Morrowind, the incredible amount of quality third-party add-ons add a lot of scope and replay value to the game.

Incompetence sharingSo, here's a pretty interesting art topic that I seldom find to be discussed.Incompetence sharing3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Basically, there's this idea that the art industry just absolutely needs a tsunami of tutorials from everyone and their mother. Not just from the masters of their craft, but anyone who yesterday held a pencil in their hand. Everyone is in a fervor to EDUCATE, it seems. Unfortunately, without the credentials to do so.
Yesterday I saw a tutorial on the front page, on how to draw flames and fire. What struck me was how abysmal it was - not only the presentation of the process looked bad, but the result, which the author toted as a "flame", сame out to be very, very poor. This prompted me to reflect back on all the previous shit-tutorials I've seen, and how they're not only unhelpful, but damaging to other, young artists. There recently had been a flood of them - how to draw water, how to draw this, how to draw anime eyes, etc - pathetic in quality, utterly unhelpful and presenting a result that is anything

She also has some brilliant Pilot Rock, songs about the radio series cabin pressure, staring the equally brilliant Benedict Cumberbatch.

We are all a bit busy right now and sometimes we cannot vote on works in time and they occasionally expire. Please resubmit and write a comment mentioning that the work was previously expired. That will get our attention. Please do not resubmit until the work is actually expired (which I believe is set to 7 days)!! It creates a lot of backlog for other submissions and we may decline for a double submission by mistake.
Please bring any concerns or suggestions up on this blog
