Mack The Knife How Ella Fitzgerald Redefined A Classic
The spotlight has a certain psychological effect that can cause the brain to do strange things.
For example, if you’re in a play and you know your lines backwards and forwards in rehearsal, the effect of the spotlight could still make you trip up on opening night. It wouldn’t be the first time it’s happened, and luckily for you, you’d be in very good company.
Finland was in the Axis!!! :OYeah, my being a history buff, I wanted to know more about Romania's role in the axis, which brought me in contact with the other countries that were allied with the Axis, which brought me to Finland. I was like: "Finland!!! I didn't know you were part of the Axis!!! " Yeah.Finland was in the Axis!!! :O3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Basically Finland had no choice but to become allies with the Axis, though technically they were never, legally, part of the Axis. Russia, being the creeper that he was wanted Finnish land, so Finland fought back (that being Talvisota or the Winter War). Finland couldn't really ask the Allies for help so the only other reliable country was Germany.
So... Finland was in the Axis... And he seemed so innocent and kind mmm..... He's still adorable and I love him ^^ He's just cooler that he has such interesting history.
There a mini history lesson for you!

Stock Rules and SuchMy rules are minimal.Stock Rules and Such3 years ago in Personal More Like This
*Absolutely NOTHING perverted or sexual. I don't want to come across an image of mine manipulated to display something brutally offensive. If you break this rule I will remove all my stock.
*Images may be used on and off DA, for contests prints pretty much wherever and however you want. Just please credit and always send me a link. The best part about stock is seeing what others create with it.
*You may use my stock in work you're trying to sell on or off line or for prints. You may also use for commercial work. However, you must manipulate it in some way to be able to do this. If you can credit me great, if not thats fine. Be fair and don't claim any of my stock as your own.
*Most all my images can be used for stock unless its a manipulation with another persons art in it.
*Sometimes I forget to change the creative commons license before I submit, doesn't matter still fair game to use as you please.
I take requests so if there is something particular you're looki
REMINDER: Photomanip Tutorial Challenge!Welcome to our official tutorial challenge!REMINDER: Photomanip Tutorial Challenge!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Another tutorial challenge? YES! Keep reading!
Part of "illumination" is learning, expanding our horizons, and helping others learn as well. So, this time we are not going to USE tutorials. Rather, we are going to MAKE them.
What you have to do
Your job is as follows:
Take a critical look at your gallery. What are your strengths as an artist? What are you really good at doing? Are you known for your light and shadow? Color use? "Glow" effects? Do you do skin well? Can you paint really well? Are you a master of masks? What do people compliment you on?
Create a detailed tutorial, with examples, of how you achieve this effect or do this technique. It does not have to involve the creation of a new deviation. You can explain how you did this effect in an old deviation or just with stock without making it a full deviation.
Square Enix - I applied a couple of years ago.Here's a little personal story for my art friends.Square Enix - I applied a couple of years ago.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
About 3 years ago now I applied on a whim for a position to join the Square Enix Visual Works team in Japan. I expected not to hear anything back. I applied with a nice letter, a link to my folio and a 'top secret' link to copious amounts of NDA work.
I was blown away to get a personal response about 2 or 3 days later from one of the Art Directors on the team.
It was very blunt and very straight forward. He told me that I had a very unique style and that my artwork was great, He loved the heavy, solid feel and saturated colors but he had reservations about how far I could push it towards realtime cinematic work. The exact words he used to describe it was " Imagine an offline rendered character that we see today, we need to see that, modelled and textured in a stylised, fantastical final fantasy way but for use in realtime applications." He went further on to say "The stylisation is in design choices, not materials, which are to be very

How to improve your skills in close-up-photographySince many people asked me how I take my pictures and why they are so "special", I would like to tell you how I manage things when I take pictures.How to improve your skills in close-up-photography3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I. Finding the location
When I go outside to take pictures of nature, I do barely have any concepts in my mind. I just go and let nature inspire me. The first important step is finding a location.It is not that difficult to find an interesting background. I personally do prefer backgrounds which are not monochrome. Many shades of light (light and dark contrasts or different colors) make your picture interesting, no matter if the final result will be monochrome or colorful in the end.I look out for locations where not many people are. Like a big meadow in front of a house or a field or forests. (Forests do have the special plus that it does almost always have different light shadings I mentioned in 2).
II. Know your possibilities!
You have found your favourite location? Great! Many people do the mistake to

I just got "SimPE" the sims2 package editor.
Then I opened the ".package" file downloaded from a sims2 site.
------Getting the 3D body---------
To extract the 3d body you need to use a sim2 package with a mesh file in it.
Click on the list of files that says GMDC, and on the lower left check all the parts in that box that says "Generic Rcol Editor"
Click on preview to see a small image of what it looks like.
Then click "Export" and use DirectX Exporter. Then import the x file into PMDeditor. I think you need to scale it "x10" to see it, not sure though. But yeah. Then you just need to assign the materials.
Open the package containing the textures you want.
Scroll down on the left and select "Texture Image"

In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al

The Elder Fucking Scrolls VI Valenwood!!!!
Some details have been leaked to the public, like the beginning of the game. Do you know those japanese games (like Kingdom Hearts II or Ni No Kuni) where the game tells you even how to breathe during the tutorial section? Valenwood is going to put tutorials to a whole new level.
The main character is going to be the Dragonborn known from TES V Skyrim, although ten years after defeating the World Eater Alduin, we won't find him/her in such a good shape. He'll look like a retired hero with weak muscles and large belly when assassins from the Dark Brotherhood (hired by the deceased Alduin's followers) try to kill him. Despite his condition, he manages to escape, and this is where the tutorial mode comes in. The player's task will be - thankfully to the superb game engine - to train the old protagonist back into shape. The best thing is that only this sectio

When recently asked how his political candidate would explain certain positions taken during the
nomination process with contrary positions to be taken during the general election, the campaign chief
replied that stated political positions were “like an Etch A Sketch,”—meaning they could simply be
flipped over, erased and begun over from scratch.
Were it that adult life were as simple as a happy Etch A Sketch memory from childhood.
(The campaign chief took heavy heat for his flippant, if truthful, statement.) The incident made
me wonder how many of us had early experiences as “sketch artists” with that incredible red toy that
has become almost standard issue for so many children still to this day.
