“If life were a camera, I'd have the lens cap on.”
― Charles M. Schulz
I lacked the inspiration for any words for the article today, so I googled Photography under News and came up with something pretty amazing. Photography, it says, can be an ideal tool to give a voice to those who need it most, people on the margins of society, or who have little access to mass modes of outside communication. Photo-journalism goes some way to documenting those who can't document themselves, but how different would it be if they could do it? What would they photograph if they were stood behind the view finder looking forwards at their own lives? And equally - what would we photograph about ourselves?
PhotoVoice is a charity that was formed about ten years ago and is now well known for its commitment to training and developing the knowledge of those members of communities who are l

1. How did you join dA?
I had this friend in high school that had an account on DeviantArt back in 2002 or 2003 or so. But back then both DA and my internet connection were slow as hell, the page loads took ages, and I kept scolding him "Can't you show me any of your drawings that aren't on that crappy slow website!??". Back in time I used to have my own website for my art and story's. It was really common to have your own site in that time, as there were no social media websites or whatsoever and back then all of us internet people were programming nerds (or so I like to pretend -- to make me appe

Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKSSo... that last journal was a doosie wasn't it? 500+ comments and counting! Yikes. I can always count on Anita Sarkeesian to give me tons of views, lol. All joking aside, that was a very serious batch of discussions. Anytime we talk about sexism and objectification of women in gaming or geek culture, it's sure to get a lot of responses.Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sadly since Anita is such a hot-topic around the internet, there was more than one person who were trying to claim that there actually isn't ANY issue with the game industry involving sexism at all. To them, this whole idea that women are marginalized or objectified or treated badly both in the gaming industry and in geek culture is just false. It doesn't exist. And any attempt to explain why we need to change things is inherently flawed because there's no reason to do so.
So in the interest of trying to debunk that bullshit, I made a list of sources I accumulated around the internet to prove that this is indeed a problem. I think everyone can benefit f

James squeaked quietly as he hung lights outside. He stated clearly that he didn't want any help decorating for the holidays, which everyone agreed to do-leave him alone-, but James had carelessly forgot to bring a ladder. Sadly considering his height he wasn't able to reach the top of the gates outside. James hopped up as he tried to hang the twinkling lights, falling back in his butt in the process. The prince sighed sadly as he got up again, once again trying to complete the task with his poorly thought plan. Finally he got one strand hanging off the gate. " Yay~! " He cheered happily, smiling proudly. He spun around happily, somehow managing to get tangled in the lights. He shrieked, falling down, tied up in the mess of sparkling lights. James pouted sadly and rolled

PE: Watercolour and saltWatercolour and saltPE: Watercolour and salt6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Watercolour painting provides us with fantastic possibilities to create various textures. They can be achieved in many different ways with use of many different side components and equipment - in this article, I'll focus on salt textures. It usually takes time to get a handle of it - like everything else - but the outcome is definitely worth it.
Water and pigment
The three factors that determine the effects are the amount of water, amount of pigment and amount of salt, with the two first being the harder part. The more water you use, the more time it takes for the paint to dry and the more time the salt has to work - therefore the pigment will be pushed further away and you'll get bigger, paler spots between darker pigment borders. Less water will get you smaller, star-like

By now most of you are aware that today was Thiefoworld's last day as a Community Volunteer and Mentor. Although no longer on the Volunteer Team, he will forever be a part of our community and forever known for his adorable deviantIDs as seen below:
On a personal note, working alongside Thiefoworld was not only rewarding, but also a very inspirational and positive experience for me. He always had a positive outlook and have you seen his journals? He sure does know how to find fantastic gifs! Seriously though, he is someone I look up to and respect fully as I know many of you do as well. He is simply put an amazing individual and artist! Don't fret though, he will still be actively engaging in the group and the community from as he put it "the comfort of his senior wheelchair" and we love him even more for that!
