A Wonderful Movie in Review
Selma is a brilliantly understated account of events in 1965, centered on the protest march in Selma, Alabama brutally assaulted by Gov. George Wallace’s thuggish state police troopers, that became a catalyst to the passage of the Voting Rights Act, at that time the single most important Federal legislation f

It would seem counter-intuitive that a person wearing glasses—i.e., a person in need of a device to properly identify and understand incoming visual perceptual information—would be assumed to be more rather than less intellectually gifted. And yet that’s the transformative power of donning a pair of glasses, the thicker-lensed and clunkier the better.

From the clothesline strung across the backyard, to the college dorm laundry rooms, to the inner city all-night Laundromats, we all have our memories that begin with helping Mom with Laundry Day, that task that soon became ours alone upon taking flight from the family nest. Laundry day can evoke warm memories of family unity, or cold memories of aching separation and loneliness, the softness of a stack of fresh towels or the hardness of city sidewalks, depending on the time in you life you are remembering. Here is a collection of deviations evoking the full range of Laundry Day duality.

The latest graphic tablets (now affordable for most anyone,) matched with the latest high-definition screens (displaying billions of colors,) connected to the latest computers (whose size are measured in inches and not feet,) all to render work near instantaneously. It's hard to imagine that with what we have today, publishers and artists were using these same types of devices as much as 40 years ago to set type, scan images, or even draw pictures.
So if you were an artist in the late 1970's, what would it have been like?
Well, click here (or above) to watch a video to get a bit of an idea.
If that's anything to go by, straight-up drawing was still a little out of reach. But you could scan drawings, save them, view them on a screen, scale them,

Deviations seen listed have been reported once before but have not been removed and have been filed as 'invalid' or 'needs more information' despite them being submitted into groups centered around little girls.
*Every single deviation you see here for UnderAge Erotica has been submitted into at least one Loli Group. For those of you who don't know what a loli is:
Lolicon, also romanized as rorikon, is a Japanese portmanteau of the phrase "Lolita complex". In Japan, the term describes an attraction to underage girls, or an individual with such an attraction. Outside Japan, the term is less common and most often refers to a genre of manga and anime wherein childlike female characters are depicted in an erotic manner.*

Misunderstanding of BDSM SubcultureBDSM.Misunderstanding of BDSM Subculture4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Bondage/Discipline. Dominant/Submissive. Sadomasochism. BD DS SM. BDSM. It's a global phenomenom that's legal--as long as it's consensual--in the majority of countries. 5-25% of America alone is either part of the subculture or enjoys it. There are songs--Rihanna's "S&M," Lady Gaga's "Teeth"--dedicated to it. So, why do so many people fear it or are disgusted by it? Why is what people do in their bedrooms so controversial that it requires fully-clothed people on deviantart to put a "mature content" stamp on their work?
Here are some of the stories I've heard:
They have serious mental problems stemming from trauma in the past that leads them to enjoy such "torture."
The dominant--seme--positions are ALWAYS sadistic, and it's how they get rid of their feelings.
The submissive, or uke, positions have something neurologically wrong with them to make them enjoy pain.
Sadomasochism is a form of domestic abuse (from Vogue magazine

“What do we die for, if not family, friends and freedom? We have fled from a crude reality, yet fate and war chase us, shake us like winter winds bully a wooden house. So let us fight evil with bravery, oblivion with willpower, doom to our very last breath: we have risen together, and together we fall. Where but here, at the last outpost of our kingdom, can we defeat the horde?”

Premium Content and how I feel about making moneyHalloPremium Content and how I feel about making money3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's a new feature called premium content that allows users to make file downloads available for a charge. This seems to be something with a vast range of different possibilities that range from quite nice to to quite lame. Of course we are all always against commercialization and sell-outs and everything and don't want things to change but there are some interesting options here.
Obviously everyone is going to know whether or not this is something he or she could use and how much sense it's going to make for what you do specifically but there's two points I want to adress.
I always thought it was lame when people sell stuff like brushes or psd files. This is probably just my personal opinion and many will certainly disagree for valid reasons, but I think, if you make some brushes, and you ask money for something as tiny as that, you are lame. Sorry. Actually, the point here is not that it will kill someone to pay like one buck for something tiny, it's just that it change

Let's begin shall we? I'll be using the Hedone High boys as my examples.
Tip #1: Hai baby, what's your concept?
If you were looking for a date this pick-up line would probably get you slapped in the face, but if you were looking to develop a character and shove them in a setting with other characters than it's a pretty handy way to begin. To put it in a longer sentence: What is the point of your character in relation to the storyline and/or other characters?

1.GOTA BE A FAN BEFORE DOING FAN ART FOR SOMETHING
Yup, I have not seen One Piece or Bleach so I will not do fan art for them, Im sure they are great anime as people has told me, but I just haven't gotten around to watch it thats all. So yes for me, I gota be a fan before doing fan art for something. Otherwise it kinda takes away wat the true meaning of what fan art is right? But yes I do know some people who draws fan art of whats popular rather than what they like, I remember one time I was walking in the artist alley and saw an artist who did an artwork of a fandom that I like, so I spoke to them about the series and realised the person has not played the game or know anything about it, but just drew it because
