Slender ManI was not always like this
This body isn't mine.
I changed when I was sent there-
My payment of his fine.
My arms, there's far too many.
My face has disappeared.
I've come to the conclusion
I'm something to be feared.
My woods are dark and lonely.
People come here sometimes.
They walk along the dark roads
Just taking their sweet time.
Often they find strange pictures
Of terrifying things
I attempt to help them but
I cannot stand their screams.
The static noise just follows,
They hear it, look, and run.
I guess my debt's been paid,
Because now I have no one.
Slenderman x readerYour walking home from a friends house. You check your cellphone for the time. "6:34 already?" As you walk you notice there is a mist all around you. "That's funny, I don't recall there was going to be a small mist, hu. Haha." You keep on walking when suddenly,"______." You turn around and yell, "Who's there?! Man, I must be hearing things." You keep on walking and then again, "____." You ignore it thinking it will go away. The mist had then turned into a fog. The voice then calls your name again. "____." Paniced, you begin to run home. When you get there you notice a note saying, 'He watches, no eyes'. Startled, you crumble the note, drop it on th floor and hurriedly get inside.Slenderman x reader2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You go and sit on your couch. You try to calm yourself down. "Ok, ____, your just hearing things. I think I'll just go to bed. When you get ready for bed, you notice a shadow behind you.

I just wanted to say that I know you're going through some stuff right now, stuff that may make life a little harder or even a lot harder. I know you've felt so alone and like no one cares that you're hurting and suffering, but I just wanted to say I love you. Wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever has happened or is happening to you… you're not alone.
You are amazing, beautiful, wonderful, unique, and worth every breath of life you breathe. I love you, I need you in this world, and I wish only the best things for you.

I pray that you find a peaceful end to the troubles of your life and I just want you to know that despite everything, despite feeling like no one cares… please know that I do.

Anorexia Nervosa“Anorexia isn't about being fat, it's about having fat.” ― Caroline Kettlewell, Skin GameAnorexia Nervosa1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anorexia nervosa has the highest rate of mortality of any psychological disorder.
The literal meaning of the word “anorexia” is the lack of appetite. However, people with the eating disorder anorexia nervosa do not, in fact, lose their appetite at all. Anorexia nervosa is most closely characterized by a person’s extreme reduction of food intake—starving themselves to become thin. Not only is this a serious health condition, but it’s a severe psychiatric disorder as well. Those who have been diagnosed with anorexia nervosa have an irrational fear of gaining weight and an unhealthy obsession with having a thin body. People affected by this disorde

Why ‘Modern’ Art Sucks, But the Media Loves ItSoap Box Rant Why Modern Art Sucks, But the Media Loves ItWhy ‘Modern’ Art Sucks, But the Media Loves It4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I go into a public art gallery and hate everything I see; Monochrome panels (it really doesnt inspire much contemplation); pieces of coloured paper torn up (how exactly is this an examination of colour theory?); excrement in a box (if you want to ask what is art, please do it articulately). Yet I go to a commercial art gallery, or browse about on Deviant Art, or even open a pack of Magic the Gathering Cards, and I see beautiful, evocative, witty pieces of art that make me want to hug the artist.
The thing I cant understand, is why someone thinks what the public wants to look at is these vacuous works of modern art? And why, more over are they always making the headlines and winning awards?
It must be the one area of culture where commercial interests dont rule media coverage. A handful of people love opera, but the media concentrates on Lady Gaga. A handful of people love

Before you make that first cut, please keep in mind that you will find the pain release and the blood really addictive.
You may think to yourself that you’ll be able to control it, that you won’t let it get out of hand.
You may think that you can just stick to a few small, shallow cuts here and there that won’t be deep and that will heal quickly and easily.
But you’re wrong.
You can’t control it, it’s impossible to control. It controls you. It’s an addiction.
The cuts will get deeper, they’ll scar. They’ll take weeks and to months to heal and years for the scars to actually begin to fade.
Soon, you’ll depend on it. You can’t go more than a few days without cutting. You’ll go crazy as your skin itches and burns, your hands shake, your head pounds, your vision goes blurry as you try to keep your mind off of it, try to hold

Chuck Jones Quotes on Characters"If you start with character, you probably will end up with good drawings."Chuck Jones Quotes on Characters2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"As you become acquainted with a character you are creating, you add parts of yourself that are pertinent to that character."
"Each character represented a trait that resides in me."
"I have come to know Bugs so well that I no longer have to think about what he is doing in any situation. I let the part of me that is Bugs come to the surface, knowing, with regret, that I can never match his marvelous confidence."
"The whole essence of good drawing—and of good thinking, perhaps—is to work a subject down to the simplest form possible and still have it believable for what it is meant to be."
~Chuck Jones, director, animator, cartoonist, and cocreator of characters we know today as the Looney Tunes
I got trolled last year about how you should not pour traits of people you know or yourself into your characters. It makes it too personal, they said. It's unprofessional and stupi

Don't get playedAlright, so there was a recent 'happening' in the dA forums concerning a commission offer made by someone with the starting price of $30. The piece they were asking for was supposedly a really highly detailed piece, large resolution, and basically something you'd spend (on the low end of the market) no less than $250.00 on.Don't get played1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now, from here on out this may be purely opinion and because my participation in the industry has only been for about 10 years (as in being paid for my work) I may not be the best person to speak on this matter. However, I have to say something, if only to put my own opinions on the matter out there.
15 years ago I got my first commission. It was a full colour realism portrait for someone of their dog and I offered to do it for $5.00 using traditional media.
They took up the offer and it took me about a week of working on and off to finish their image. At the time I wasn't anywhere near being sure of my skills even though I'd been drawing comprehensively
Slenderman AttackTwo girls in Wisconsin have been arrested for stabbing a classmate, apparently with the intention of becoming minions of the Slenderman. They were caught walking near a local highway, en route to Wisconsin’s Nicolet National Forest, where they believe the fictitious character lives.Slenderman Attack1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The victim, who was stabbed 19 times, is making a recovery.
All the girls involved are around 12 years old.
That’s all terrible, but what actually irks me more is that a spokesman for the Slenderman creator, and administrator for the website where most fiction revolving around the character is posted, has said "We are not teaching children to believe in a fictional monster, nor are we teaching them to be violent."
I think it’s pretty bad that a person who comes up with a concept has to be afraid of the reaction to how other people use it. Especially children. They’re random, dangerous little buggers.
Think back to your own childhood. What was the stupidest thing you did, and why?

New deviantART ThumbnailsIn the weekly Site Updates, we've been telling you all about the changes that have been launched to deviantART, getting your feedback, and reporting all the bugs that have been fixed.New deviantART Thumbnails3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
This change is a little different, since it involves a feature that has been in place for a long time. We think it deserves an announcement of its own, ahead of time.
The current deviantART thumbnails (the smaller versions of deviations) have served the community well for years; however, there's always room for improvement.
Some of the problems with existing thumbnails are: they leave a lot of blank space around them, there isn't a lot of room for text for literature deviations, and the thumbnails don't present very tall/wide images well.
The New Thumbnails
Now, we've created a new style of thumbnail, which hopes to solve a lot of these problems.

As I am from Poland, I work mostly for Polish publishing houses but I do draw for other companies too. Some things might not work out as I say, since every company has different politics. For example: Polish publishing houses are not very fond of people with an Artist degree. Same in software companies which also hire computer graphics. They don't like artists with diplomas because they "always know better" and it's very hard to work with them. It might be different in other countries, where educated artists has a different image in society. I personally believe that degree

Han pasado unas 7 estaciones y ya estaba próxima a llegar a mi destino cuando siento un pequeño golpe en mi nuca. Creí que alguien me había golpeado sin querer y mi primera reacción fue tocarme el área afectada, pero noto con asco que ese "golpe" había sido que alguien me había arrojado una sustancia pegajosa y transparente al cabello.
La olfateé y no tenía olor alguno. ¿Quizás pegamento, gel de cabello, un moco del tamaño colosal?
Como sea, miré a mi alrededor buscando una explicación o una disculpa de quien hubiese sido, pero nadie me miraba, estaban todos en sus cosas, cuando un joven junto a mí me mira sonriente y me dice "Parece que tienes algo en el pelo".

My own feeling about using anime in my art, you might notice that I always use shape and form of anime in most of my artworks, But my inner side always tells me that I don't have that much interest in it, I like to go to art museum instead of anime convention, I like to watch cartoon more than watching anime, I like to read aesthetic/philosophy and other books more than manga or doujin, [forget about video games, I've decided to quit it, cold freaking turkey] my only activity related to game is listening to games music/bgm.
