My dA story[Wow, it's been ages since I wrote a journal, so I thought this little bandwagon would be the perfect opportunity to do that.]My dA story8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I joined dA in 2006. I was 16, a sophomore in high school.
A friend of mine suggested it offhand, and I had been posting my first ventures into digital art on forums for a private server of Ragnorok Online, so I thought to myself "why not! Let's see what this is all about."
I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but the moment I first started posting, I could feel something change. Having people interested in your art and stories was so motivating; it was unlike anything I had ever had in person with family or friends. Up until I joined, I'd never really taken my art seriously.
I was on here for a year before I started concepting SalaDays, a slapstick story about supernatural teens in school. A lot of people showed interest, so I started up a webcomic (and even opened up
Shout-Out ProjectThe "inspiration" idea has been somewhat altered.Shout-Out Project1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Is there a deviant that means a lot to you, someone who inspires you or is a great friend you can rely on? Were you never really sure of how to say "thank you" for what they do/have done for you?
Why not give them a shout-out?
Post a heart-felt journal (something much more in-depth than a regular feature) dedicated to them, stating what you are thankful for (or how they helped you, how much they inspire you, or just how they're an all-around amazing person), and maybe include some of their work or what they do in the community. The journal can summarize all that is awesome about them. If you have a few deviants in mind and wanted to include them in the same journal, that is perfectly fine. And please don't feel pressured to be too personal; just write what you feel comfortable with.
If you'd like to get involved but wish to remain anonymous, I will gladly take notes and post journals with what you would like

What is animation?
Animation is the illusion of movement created from the quick sucession of static images with minimal differences between them. Today there is a great variety of animation techniques that include traditional animation (a sucession of frames, drawn digitally or traditionally), stop motion (photographs of real life objects), 3D animation (created with computer software), rotoscoping (tracing a live action sequence, frame by frame) and a large etcetera.

Take all your frustrations, doubts, negativity and use them as fuel for the fire. Tell your self you'll prove your doubts wrong. You might not be good enough today but you can do it someday. That's the kind of attitude I've always had. You don't think I can do it! Well I'll show you someday! you'll see.
If you think you can't draw realistically, but want to be good at Anime then... STOP RIGHT THERE! Every good artist whether it be anime, cartoons, anything will be able to draw Realistically to at least a degree. Not what people want to hear but it's true. But it doesn't mean you have to give up what you love, take what you learn and apply to what you love.
(´･ω･`) I actually don't feel like I can be taken seriously when I say that because of they way I draw... But it's what I really do think. Well I'll just have to get
