Not for the faint of heart,
The fan–made Defense of the Ancients (DotA) strategy game takes place on a virtual battlefield where skillfully trained players level up their heroes and arm attacks against each other’s teams to claim satisfying victory. Released in 2003, it is one of the original multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games and certainly one of the most suc

Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
You all may have seen those old masterpieces – painted in impasto techniques with rich and bold use of thick coats of colours and you have wondered how on earth they could do that.
So lets take a peek in the old masters' tools and techniques.
Today we will talk about a less used traditional technique – painting with a knife. Though it's a second most famous technique but not much artists use this technique.
Painting with a knife results in excellent textures, helps in bold application of thick rich colours, and, gives a whole new different level and style to your paintings.
Painting knives are very useful in impasto technique – both in acrylics and oils. Besides interesting textures, this certain tool gives you more control over paint and opens up a lot of ways to experiment. In one sentence, painting with a knife brings up your painting styles at a new height.
Some people says this technique can't be used to put

"The cover of the February issue of Square Enix's Monthly G Fantasy magazine is announcing on Saturday that production on a new anime series adapting Yana Toboso's Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) manga has been green-lit."
You can read more about it here:
As it says in the second link it has not yet been announced if this new adaption will follow the manga-storyline, if it will be an movie or one or multiple OVAs. What do you think/hope it will be?

Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)Some people brought up some pretty important points, so I've added some additional information about critiques below!Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Something that's been bugging me a bit lately is how the DA community has sorta changed over the years (and not in a good way). People are more bold and will post whatever's on their mind, and while that can be a good thing in some scenarios, I feel that people oftentimes say things that they might not realize will hurt someone's feelings.
I generally get a lot of positive feedback, and it really helps! It's always great to know that someone likes my work, and it keeps me motivated to keep going with this hobby. However, I'm still a human being, and negative criticism can hurt me just as much as anyone else. I'm not sure what it is, but the amount of really negative comments has increased these past couple years, and it really discourages me from even using this website anymore. Many times I've considered just disabling comments entirely, but I feel that would

I will made Christmas gift for you all and explain it C: Its not that hard as it seems.
When I write Kirana e-mail what she need to take for this shoot, it was something like "You need 1 pound of floor and 10 small balloons. No. 20 are better." So, how it was done? We put water in 2 balloons and Kirana stand still, Ten and Fei pop balloons with needles after mine "1,2,3!!!" and in that second I took photos. Easy and hard at the same time.
I will give few advices. We tried to use stick with needle, but it was too lame. It made only a small hole and water pop out like...well...it wasnt cool at all. So much better do it with hands using some strength. Also its really hard for mode

It's been ages since I've last been on here, and looking back at all the old deviations, I'm ready to start where I left off, with better deviations to show. Now, I know I came back claiming to have reclaimed my name and what I do, but in all honesty, that was me trying to get myself to do this. For the past two years, I've had a mild depression, not really motivated to do much of anything. I forced myself to continue filmmaking, cosplaying, feeling a happiness from it, experiencing a sort of freeness in being myself without /being/ myself. And doing this helped me to college, and with the right help, I was able to keep a good hold on what was not right on the inside.
I didn't like reading for pleasure anymore, which was something I had always done since I figured out at a young age that reading was a story, a movie going on behind my eyes. Art, drawing especially, brought me no pleasure asid

We enjoy seeing it, we get new comics to read from it, and it's the entire reason this group exists. However, sometimes we have to deny a submission due to something we often feel was caused by a lack of communication, or understanding of how this group works.
And so, the following guide has been created.
Here are the lists of folders, in alphabetical order, and a brief explanation on what is to be submitted in each particular folder.
To save time, remember that all artwork must follow the rules on our front page, regardless what folder it is submitted to.
18+ Adults Only
Somewhat self explanatory, the Adults Only folder is comics, comic pages, and covers that has sexual content, enough to warrant an adult content warning from Deviantart, and does not violate DA's forbidden
Awesome Pic of the DayAwesome Pic of the DayAwesome Pic of the Day1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Every once in awhile, I come across a picture that takes my breath away. My DeviantART page has been kinda bland recently, so I thought it would be cool to dedicate a section of it to feature these awesome pics. You'll find it under a section called Awesome Pic of the Day. It's much easier and quicker to post these, and I'll try to keep it updated daily or as close to it as I can get. If you think it's a good idea, let me know, and I'll keep it around. I'll archive the history of pictures in this journal entry.
