New timelapse video:)Wow it was last december that i wrote any journal. Huhh. )New timelapse video:)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As i mentioned many times already, i've been doing my timelapse video of sunrises and sunsets mostly. I've been waiting to upgrade my computer systems to make that video in a good quality. Finally it is complete.
Many scenes are recorded last year with a more limited equipment than what i have now. I am already shooting new scenes and i will be making new videos soon.
Recommended to watch the video at 720P minimum. though i must say that videos framerate is somehow much decreased when i uploaded it on the net. Don't know why.
I also would like to thank Tigerforest for their wonderful music.
How to Market Yourself on DAA question as old as DeviantArt itself;How to Market Yourself on DA7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've been in the community for 3 years,
Why do I only have 22 watchers?
I spend a lot of time on my work,
Why does my page only get 30 visits a day?
I try hard- why am I not noticed?
Why am I not famous or popular?
Thankfully for you, I know a few tricks of the trade and happen to have a brother that majored in business marketing.
Don't forget that DeviantArt is a social network along with being an art website. There are thankfully some cool things you can do to put yourself out there when you feel like you've already
Disclaimer: These are all mine and my brother's personal opinions. You do not have to agree with them. Please keep the comments free of negativity.
First and foremost, establish yourself with consistency. Consistency is what will make you easily identifiable and stand out from the crowd. This includes (but is not limited to) the title format of you

Make you CSS Journal #1Welcome to the "Make you CSS Journal" - this is part one of a series of tutorials/articles on making your own completely journal.Make you CSS Journal #19 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In this part we will cover of what is what for the CSS and a very basic style of changing colours and text.
So before we can even start with the CSS, you first need to know what part of the journal you can style and the name of it. Well you're in luck since our lovely ^thespook has done an image showing the different blocks (or divs) that the journal uses.
So we'll do this in order of how it's shown from that image. So first one is .journalbox. As you can see, this will style the box that holds the whole journal inside. Within all of these CSS Codes, you can change the hex colours (shown as #------) and borders and fonts.
border: 2px solid #C59A6F;
Then we move onto .journaltop, this is the top bit of the journal that shows the journal icon, date, time and subject. We can't style the subject f

Hello everyone! Welcome to the Anime & Manga half of this week!
Today Gwendolyn12 and me are going to explain the different categories of the Anime & Manga Gallery.
Since this Gallery has 2 different main categories the Gallery Overview is split in 2 articles.
In my article I will explain you our Digital Media category including the sub-categories. The Traditional Media category will be explained later by Gwendolyn12!
What is Anime & Manga?
Anime is based of the word Animation. These are Japanese animated productions usually featuring hand-drawn or computer animations. When you talk about an Animation in Manga style. That's Anime.
But what is Manga? With Manga you mainly mean a comic book created in Japan. But this word is used for regula
Why are we this wayThing is, i am absolutely frustrated with humans.Why are we this way1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Every single day im seeing constant injustice, constant racism, constant MISUNDERSTANDING.
It annoys me to no end. How in the world can you judge a culture, a race, a another whole REGION of human beings by a few terribly researched and portrayed news anchors? How in the WORLD can you hate an entire culture, race, ethnicity or judge an entire chunk of people without knowing them at all?
Since when have we gotten to the point, that we don't even give them a chance? That we've dehumanized those who are different from us.
Nobody said you had to agree; you were born obviously in a different mini world of your own. But these people have families, homes, friends, they joke with eachother, they play catch with their child, they smile at their grandmother, they eat breakfast, they watch the sunrise.
We are all human, and we all do almost the same things every single day. We are NOT that different, and if

"The Fifty Shades trilogy was developed from a Twilight fan fiction series originally titled Master of the Universe and published episodically on fan-fiction websites under the pen name "Snowqueen's Icedragon". The piece featured characters named after Stephenie Meyer's characters in Twilight, Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. After comments concerning the sexual nature of the material, James removed the story from the fan-fiction websites and published it on her own website, FiftyShades.com. Later she rewrote Master of the Universe as an original piece, with the principal characters renamed Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele and removed it from her website before publication."
A Letter For All Of You~Please ReadI want to let you know you are loved.A Letter For All Of You~Please Read1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When you get up in the morning and feel distressed and worried, remember that you are loved. Even if you don't feel like it, remember that you are loved.
When you walk through the halls of school, and are confused, or don't know why you are sitting aimlessly in the middle of class, remember that you are loved. Sometimes we have to fall in order to get back up.
Even if you're happy, and don't feel stress at all, remember that you are loved. Be grateful, and smile.
If you are sitting lonely in a corner of your room, typing away at that laptop or PC and suddenly feeling that you have no one around, remember, that you are loved. I know you don't feel it, but there is not one person in this world without a hint of that beautiful feeling. So embrace that love, cultivate it, grow it so large in your heart that those icky feelings will never return. Become a tree of love, and let others enjoy your bounty.
You are love.
A Brief Discussion On Limited PaletteA Brief Discussion On Limited PaletteA Brief Discussion On Limited Palette1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
We all know that temptation when we see a pretty new colour in the art-shop, or the urge to create a mesmerizing colourful artwork while planning a painting. We then use our favourite colour(s) in full force - by means of as much as we want - and we often have more than one favourite colour....
Aftermath: A muddy or unreal canvas! Colours do not look right and did not turn out exactly as it was in our mind - not even close and harmony is far away! It turned into a visual cacophony!
What might get wrong? A lot of things! But specially all those pretty colours you put at will!
It is not bad to paint with many colours - many big artists paint with more than 70 colours on their palette. Even we do not finish a painting in less than 10 colours - right? The difference is that the famous or big artists have mastered

10 Top Tips To Become A Better Artistby10 Top Tips To Become A Better Artist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tip 1: Learn the Importance of the Sketch
Sketching is one of those things that every artist MUST do and do often. Sketches don't have to be perfect, nor do you have to show them to anyone. They can be as rough or as scratchy as you like but the thing to keep in mind is it's readability. The purpose of a sketch is to quickly illustrate or develop an idea you have, to capture or study some form of reference so that it can be worked on at a latter date. Because of this, the sketch only needs to convey the right information to you and you alone (unless you are drawing an idea out for a client then the message needs to be crystal clear).
Tip 2: Draw, Draw and Draw Some More!
This is a similar tip to the first but what I mean by this is draw anything that comes to mind or visually interests you. Sketch on the bus, train, in bed and even on the toilet. Seriously! The

She is in the Transformers fandom and she loves to pair her OC with Thundercracker who is a Decepticon. If you pair your OC with a canon character, she'll rail on you basically stating that you cannot do that and that your character is not very liked when there are so many artists in the art world on dA who draw your character. If that is not very liked then, I guess my friend's character is not liked a lot. But really, my friend's character is awesomely designed and drawn. People love the character. But this girl doesn't like the fact that my friend's character is so popular and people want to draSomeone that should be blocked and ignored.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Fast lane to becoming a better artist.I often get this very question: How did you get this good this fast?Fast lane to becoming a better artist.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now as I consider myself not being as good as people tell me, even struggling quite often with being an artist in general.
I do know how to get better and how to reach it fast. I'm still growing as I go and it's the main thing that keeps me going.
You need to get into the right mindset and the rest will follow. With the rest I mean:
3. Positive energy.
4. The NEED to draw.
Seeing growth in your work gives you the courage to work harder. You know that feeling when you're just about done with an image
and feel like this image is better than your last one, that great feeling. Use it!
Do studies! Lots of them!! Make film shot studies, live object studies, master-painting studies. They will teach you a lot about composition, lighting, colors, shapes storytelling etc.
You will hardly notice that you are learning thing

So this is the result.My Dad's Thoughts on Attack on Titan11 months ago in Personal More Like This
(My question) Q: What do you think about Eren Jaeger?
(His answer) A: He's a titan, and an okay person. Even though some of the people (referring to the court scene) don't like him. Also, he should stay away from spoons.
Q: What do you think about Mikasa Ackerman?
A: She's got a cool scarf. And saves Eren's butt a lot.
Q: What do you think about Armin Arlert?
I don't like his voice (referring to the dub). Other than that he's cool, and pretty smart.
Q: What do you think about Levi?
A: Who's that? (I tell him) Oh. Good leader. He always looks scary.
Q: How old do you think Levi is?
A: I don't know, 21?
Q: Who's your favorite character in the series, and why?
A: Potato girl (I'm guessing he doesn't know her name). Oh, and that crazy scientist too, I don't know he

Mindful Meditation of Daily Drawing

Gabriel Picolo is a graphic design student in Brazil who has provided at least two people—me and himself—a most compelling reason for getting out of bed every morning in 2014. He calls it the 365 Days of Doodles Project, for which he creates, each day, one of his wildly imaginative pencil sketch and ink drawings (quite a bit more elevated than a “doodle”—more like a free-flowing meditation).

First, let’s start off with Wendy’s “Milky Way” and The Dragon Festival. I know many mangaka’s are very fond of intertwining their series with many Japanese folk tales, myths, or stories because they, like many other ethnicities, take pride in their culture. Now, I discovered that there is a Japanese folktale, originally stemming from a Chinese Legend, called the Tanabata Festival. Here is the following story:
“The Japanese Tanabata Festival is based on a Chinese legend including elements of a Japanese myth already in place. The festival takes place on July 7 every year and is associated with the stars Vega and Altair.
Vega represents Orihime, a princess and weaver who lived with her father, the emperor Tentei, on the eastern side of the river of the Milky Way. Altair represents Kengyuu, a very handsome and brave herdsman who lived on the west
