"Some thoughts now that FPAW is over
First off, this thing took off so well. I was hoping for 100 followers by the end of FPAW. We exceeded that, and the response to the art was pretty much a resounding “OMG! Everyone is so beautiful!”
But it was not without criticism as well. Something I heard from others (and thought myself): “A lot of these people… don’t look fat.”
It’s true. Even dele
Perceptions of HomosexualityGay and Lesbian rights is a an issue that galvanizes people, particularly on the internet, and as I writer of male/male fiction or a Yaoi fangirl, as you may prefer, I would like to weigh in with my views on the matter.Perceptions of Homosexuality2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Naturally I do completely support Gay rights and all this entails. For example I believe that adoption and marriage are just as valid options for Gay and Lesbian couples and should be permitted and protected by law. I also feel that individuals of any marginal sexual orientation or gender identity should be free from prejudice, harassment, or unequal treatment at work or in public. So on and so forth.
I think that this is the most common stance for liberal-minded individuals and is probably the one expected of me, given my interests. My interests in male/male works however are not what guarantees or suggests my support for Gay rights.
I think most Yaoi fans do support gay rights but, although their tastes may influence this opinion, this is mainly because they are thems

Celebrating Diversity #36The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to share deviations outside of our area of comfort and explore art we usually don't see. So today, I decided to venture into the Stock Photography gallery and you know what I discovered? That there are some stock photographs, which by nature are intended for other artists to use, as reference or for derivative works, etc. that are truly masterpieces just by themselves!Celebrating Diversity #361 year ago in Art Features More Like This

PS: this one is on the verge being settled, Disney already started working on it, she's being helped.
Seeing posts like this, I just thought I should share some knowledge I have, I personally already have met 3 different artists who doesn't know what to do when:
Record company ripped them off
Publisher ripped them off
Big corporation used their artwork without permission (that's usually by accident because of an outsource company broke the rule etc)

It's been more than three weeks since I got banned from dA. I really don't wanna talk about it but I'm sure some people would still ask me what happened. So I guess I Have no choice...
Last August 22nd, my birthday, dA started banning accounts. Apparently, most of these people are linked to Black Monkey Pro (BMP). The main reason for my ban was the uncensored version of the BMP After-Party pic I had stored on my Sta.sh (and not the censored one I had on my gallery, which I initially thought). I guess it was a mistake for storing it there to begin with.
Anyway, I filed an appeal and asked if I could be given a second chance. dA is very special to me because it had been part of who I am as an artist today, and it still is. I asked if my ban could be changed into a suspension instead. The staff was kind enough to listen to my plea and gave me a second ch

You know, yesterday, after my daily shower, while blowing my hair, I took a pair of scissors and I started cutting my hair without thinking. Yes, it's not like I always think but I had this urgency of changing. And the fact is that I spent the past two years complaining that I wanted/want long hair like Rapunzel... whatever.
I think this is the richest collection of artworks I have ever featured here on dA. It's full of my personal favorite works of 2013 that you may enjoy. Show some love to these amazing artworks and get inspired

I've been stressing out about college applications lately. I'm almost done applying to them all; I think I have 2 or 3 left. Only one notified me if I got in or not and that's because it's not really an art school, haha.
Still, I hope one of the art schools in New York accept me and offer a generous package. That's all I really want. so much >_< Bleh it makes me so sad that college is so expensive here in U.S...(10k-50k per year) I really don't want to have a huge debt on my shoulders when I graduate or burden my parents// D:

*This journal skin apparently doesn't like big monitors very much -- you might need to resize your window temporarily to view it properly*
It's every atheist's favorite time of year again - the time when we get to harass and oppress Christians the world over, because people -- the War on Christmas is real.
In celebration of this most holy of wars, I've decided that I'm going to go against tradition and explain just exactly what the War on Christmas is all about, and how it all leads up to the most holy of days on the atheist calendar: AntiChristmas.
The official War on Christmas begins in late November with the Day of Preparation for the War on Christmas -- known by most Americans as "Thanksgiving Day." Recently President Obama (who was planted by atheist organizations in order to pursue our liberal secularist agendas) was exposed by

- Ansel Adams
When photography was first created it was used primarily for portraits. It was not yet mobile and therefore could not yet be used in genres like landscape or journalism. Portrait painters at the time felt that photography was not legitimately artistic, and this spurred the "Pictorialist" photographic movement. In defense of their art, Pictorialists depicted subjects with soft visual effects and artistic poses. At the beginning of the twentieth century a man named Paul Strand countered the "Pictorialist" movement stating that it was too apologetic, and did not take advantage of the new medium.
Paul Strand was an American Modernist photographer leading the drive to establish photography as a valid form of fine art. However, he did not believe that all forms of photography held artistic value. His argument was based on the idea - central to modernist art, of 'trut

Mae says-GENWUNNERS the whiners of the PKMN fandomHello everyone! With the release of Pokemon X/Y I was inspired to make a post about the most annoying part of the Pokemon fandom; Genwunners. Since the beginning, these guys have been farting their nostalgic gasses ruining the Pokemon experience for all fans. They usually pop up when a new Generation is introduced, however they especially got whiny after Generation 3. In my opinion, Generation 5 had the biggest WAAAAH fest courtsey of the Genwunner's club but Gen 6 is also getting its whiners as well. Therefore I think its more than appropiate to release this post now that the whining is at full blast!Mae says-GENWUNNERS the whiners of the PKMN fandom1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been part of the Pokemon fandom since the third grade. I can remember Pokemon as being the 'new hip trend' therefore everyone was into it and life was peaceful for the most part. Since I was a child and life was simpler back then, whenever I look back to Generation 1 and 2 I feel nostalgic and...well...happy! Pokemon wasn't just a videogame to us kids; it was

dA Compliments #14 + Important AnnouncementsOkay, this is long overdue, so let's get to it. I remember when I first chanced Riemea- her artwork was astounding and I was awed with what I saw. At the time, she was trying to sell some commissions, and I tried featuring her (I highly doubt it was seen, darn). xP Anyway, little did I know she didn't just have an amazing gallery, but she also had an amazing personality. When I started getting more involved in the community, I would see her helping with many things from giving constructive feedback to giving her time to do features for others. Now, I work with her at this amazeball group known as dAWishingWell, and I see now just how sweet and thoughtful she can be!

As I have to have a major operation next week and would prefer not to temporarily close the group, :icondboland2012:, one of our talented members, has very kindly volunteered to take over in my absence, which I appreciate more than words can say and I am sure the members will appreciate it too.
Due to a very persuasive member, I have opened a new folder for 3D objects, which do not require a background, over painting or textures.
Another feature of amazing artworks from our very talented members, which I hope everyone will enjoy as much as I do and be inspired by. Our membership is steadily growing and is now approaching 3,640 and our galleries as I always write, contain even more amazing and inspirational art, which is well worth viewing as well as adding to your .

Why do homosexual works have Warnings?This title is an honest question. And maybe I'm being a little naive here. But that's why I'm asking this.Why do homosexual works have Warnings?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
How come a lot of gay or lesbian works have warnings in front them saying there's the same gender romance but proportionally, works of heterosexual romance don't have nearly the same number of warnings?
One answer is many people find homosexual or even homoromantic works unnatural and disgusting. But why is that? The only time I find some boyxboy or girlxgirl works disgusting personally, is when some works become sexual (yaoi/yuri). So...yeah I can see how you'd find it disgusting then. But I've seen some heterosexual works disgusting and unnatural too. A lot of the times, it's because it's gross and overly sexual. But there are other heterosexual works which I find unnatural simply because of the couple that's paired off (not because they're hetero). And yet I've seen gay and lesbian works of couples holding hands, flirting, or hugging and there's warnings of characters being ho
