.i think you know.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
of hair wound tight round a hand like rope
of thoughts that sail in and let down anchor
in the night, sleep drifting away on the black tide,
i think you know of god up in the crow's nest, keeping watch
his eyes have rolled at us so much they rattle, loose now
in their pits like marbles, they say he knows
i have examined the slides of my childhood, uprooted my body,
yanked myself out of my years with my own gloved hand
like a weed and stared in disgust, it's only natural
that you should still want to sleep with one arm over
your head, she said, don't you think?
i think the sun lit up
the world's scars
and felt bad, hung its head
through the horizon
and cried in shame
now i don't think it's ever
going to stop raining
(i am holding up my mind, i am shoving it in your face)

A Few Things You Need To Remember.
- You’re getting this for free. If you’re going to complain and be picky about the outcome then you need to commission someone, otherwise it’s not fair.
- If you’re doing an art-trade always keep your part of the deal. (Or at least attempt to.)
- You might want to make a list of what you will and won’t draw (ie: won’t draw up to a certain number of characters, Graphic nudity, etc.)
- Here’s a list of icons you can use to show your status: http://need-moar-plz-llamas.deviantart.com/journal/Open-closed-signs-219414365
- If you're doing an Art-trade you should realise that [maybe] you're asking too much for what you've done in return.
(ex: say you've given them a sketch you've completed in a minute and they've taken days to complete theirs.)

You guys have until 9:00 EST of today (14th) to get those in! Please do, as I don't wanna penalize anyone.
After that I'll count 'em up and tell you guys who's won!
Slight edit in the voting rules! It's an importaint one, but if you've voted already, no worries! Just disregard this.
If you've entered the contest, you HAVE TO VOTE. If you don't, I have to penalize you by halving your votes. Sorry for the confusion! :U The reason for this is so no one avoids voting for the other contestants. This can give the non-voter a slight advantage by not adding to anyone else's votes, while the other contests may vote for them, giving them votes.
In short, you have to give votes to get votes! Fair enough, right? I've added this to the Voting Rules for future reference.
Heyo guys! Yeah, I know, I'm a little late. I was gonna post at midnight

Octopus Accessories - art thieveshttp://www.octopus-store.ro/Octopus Accessories - art thieves1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
this is their store. They are Octopus Acessories
This is their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OctopusAccessories
They had my drawings printed and were selling necklaces with them. They also lied to me that they did not steal them and took them from from some deviant who supposedly stole them first.
They sent me this link to this deviant :iconxyqueen: but the drawings that belong to me were submitted 12 hours ago. So obviously this couldn't be true since Nijikon was over 12 hours ago, and they had them for sale since 3 days ago.
This girl is so shameless, she lied to my face! She made me feel bad about calling her out and "making a scene" in front of her booth. OMG! And i believed her, i could have had her kicked out of the convention on the spot! She made me apologize for making a scene in front of her booth So she stole my art, and i was the one who apologized.
THAT. IS. WRONG.
Wow, if thievery was a game, she would be the final boss

What are adoptables? (The informational journal)FAQ: AdoptablesWhat are adoptables? (The informational journal)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What are adoptables?
The 'adoptables' you are seeing in this group are mostly animal, hybrid and human designs artists use as personas or characters. They have no physical presence. They are mainly artistic designs of all sorts sold for points (a strictly dA resource), trade or real cash.
How do I sell them? What are the rules for adoptables?
The designs sold are like selling pieces of artwork - they have to be one of a kind and not a copy of someone else's design. If you sell a design that is (or is almost like) somebody else's design, you can get banned from dA for art theft.
To sell an adoptable, it has to be a design you made that you are willing to sell to someone else for the trade of your choice. You can trade it for one of their adoptables, sell it to them for points/money or even give it away for free. You may do this as long as you m

Twins: “Old Souls” at Birth?
Look into the eyes of these photographed twins in this special gallery.
Twins always seem to possess an “old souls” essence in their characters, probably because of the several profound aspects of “twindom” that the rest of us will never have to contemplate, let alone live through on a daily basis. Can you imagine having an almost perfect mirror image of yourself, living alongside you every day? Some reflexive

"___, wake up," The voice chuckles. Your eyes flutter open at that. "Hm?" You hum. You blink at his chest, pulling away as your eyes go up to Luffy's face. "Shishishi! Good morning," He chuckles. You release him and roll off the bed, pulling the blanket down with you. "___?" He says, peering down at you in slight concern.
"No," You murmur, pulling the blanket over your face. "You're gonna miss breakfast," He tells you. You grumble in response. Luffy chuckles, "Come on," He insists, pulling the blanket away from your face. You glower up at him. He grins, "Please?" He chuckles. You sigh and get up, "Alright already," You growl.
