dear dA: age is irrelevantthis recent deviantart poll "At what age does an artist have the most artistic freedom?" is a condescending and narrow-minded question.dear dA: age is irrelevant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
often i see people have opinions about age and how it relates to art. some say that they are too young or too old to do one thing or the other.
well, i have not been on this planet very long, i can't speak for everyone and everyone's circumstances are different. but i will say this.
you are alive. and since you are, there is nothing that can stop you from your freedom to express yourself through art or anything that you have a passion for - especially your age.
don't let anyone's preconceived notions about your social status stop you from doing something that is so much bigger.
a blank canvas doesn't care how old you are, where you came from or what inspires you. you will always be able to fill it with what inspires you no matter what.

About RC2In a galaxy not far away, a space station was built and funded by the world’s richest man: Ronald Jackson. This project was overseen by his partner, Carter Johnas. But after Jackson’s unforeseen death, the vision and completion of the space station was pressed entirely upon Carter.About RC22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unlike the late mogul's unrealistic and, in Carter's blunt words, “childlike dreams and piggish affairs,” Carter looks to keep the Roulette City Space Station quite the opposite of the city it was modeled after. While the tradition of the Roulette City yearly tournament shall live on in the station, Carter aims to keep the event more organized and less brutish than Jackson’s original vision. Will all this effort play out favorably? Only time and broken noses will tell.
Contestants will fight one on one each round and the last one standing in the end wins a huge cash prize and advertisement.

Frequently Asked Questions
Now listen up, I learned all of this from reading tutorials on the internet, so there's no reason why you shouldn't do the same! That's what you do when you want to learn a new skill, you read about it! So instead of being asked, here is some reading to do. Now READ IT!! Also, tutorials for BJD face ups apply to plastic/vinyl dolls most of the time, so you can read about both of them.

Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSIntroduction about making handmade books1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Today I'd like to share with you some basic tips if you're interested in making handmade books. I've learned how to do that a few terms ago, at the university. As an art restoring adept I've been through the old, traditional ways of making books and added some modern touches to simplify that. I'm going non-professional so far, without expensive equipment, so if you'd like to give books a try you don't have to invest that much
The first and obvious thing that's needed for our book is paper. At that stage you have to decide what kind of book you'd like to make - you need lined or squared paper for notebooks, journals, cookbooks and basically everything that's meant to write in. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks require nice smooth plain paper and photo albums work best with thick and durable paper. Of course those are basics, you can use decorated paper or one suitable for

The Backstory of Kozmotis Pitchiner (Pitch)Deep inside the clock, Ombric was somersaulting through time at a furious pace. The world around him flickered from day to night faster than the blink of an eye. He saw seasons pass in seconds. Centuries flew by as he drifted up and away from the Lamadary.He looked skyward as the sun and stars spiraled past him at rocket speed. Day. Night. Day. Night. Faster than could be said and in reverse. The Moon was there too, and in a flash he saw the explosion of Pitch's galleon and the last great battle of the Golden Age. But it all happened too fast. The relics fell from the Moon too quickly for him to track them.The Backstory of Kozmotis Pitchiner (Pitch)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ombric wasn't worried. He would slow down his trajectory on the return trip and take note of their whereabouts. And if his plan worked, he wouldn't need to.
He began to drift away from Earth, going deeper and deeper into the vast dazzlements of space. He was traveling so swiftly through time that comets, planets, and galaxies pivoted and sparkled around him like fireworks, but their

Many times, especially during your middle and highschool years, you feel like you're train stuck on its' path. you have your routine, and you see the same things over and over again.
You may appreshiate the simplicity of the unchanging routine, and slowly become afraid of change.
You may like your route very much at first, then grow very sick of the same trees you pass by.
Or you may despise your route, terrified of the dark tunnels that you have to go through every day, with only the brief light you see between tunnels.
There would be many other cases, but for me, I'm the train that travels along a beautiful road, that is slowly losing it's bright and wonderful colours. I'm afraid that this track I'm stuck on will soon become a dull and dark path.
However, no matter what your case is, there is always someth
Bell$ and Whi$tle$You remember when mobile phones used to just do one thing: be a phone? Then they could text. Then they could take photos. Then they could connect to the internet.Bell$ and Whi$tle$2 years ago in Personal More Like This
People pay hundreds for the latest iPhone, which does a ton of things on top of being a phone, and which is why I DON'T OWN ONE!
I carry a phone because I might need to make a call.
Don't think that I'm some sort of Luddite that takes offence at all the bells and whistles they bolt onto the little boxes. I'm not. I just have no use for them, and so, I don't want to pay for them.
I can go into my local phone emporium and pick up a device that is a phone and only a phone for £19.99 (or even less!). No camera, no internet access, just a crappy little green screen that displays a number.
It's a phone, nothing more.
Which brings me to the next generation of consoles.
As far back as I have desired them, they have cost around the £100 – £200 mark at launch, even when they started doing things they didn't need to, like play DVDs/Blue

I started this database when I first started dA over two years ago. I kept seeing these amazing emotes, but I could never remember their names when I wanted them. After putting together a very tiny list, I realized what an epic effort it would take to gather a really difinitive list. And I found out that there were plenty of other accounts that had better lists up already.
I gave up on collecting them, and nearly forgot about this account... Until I started having trouble finding some of the amazing new plz accounts on any of the listings. So I decided to update this site. :iconexcitedplz:

Portal 2 Alternate Storyline Revealed at PAX2012Here is a blog post from G4TV:Portal 2 Alternate Storyline Revealed at PAX20122 years ago in Personal More Like This
Remember at the end of Portal 2 when the companion cube get spat out at Chell’s feet in the middle of that generic cornfield? Well, until relatively late into development, that cube was going to be a turret…as in, married…to Chell. “What?!” you no doubt just said out loud to yourself, preferably around a bunch of strangers who are now looking at you with curious yet slightly terrified eyes. I know, crazy right?
During their PAX Prime 2012 panel, Valve writers Chet Faliszek and Erik Wolpaw revealed that the team had developed an entire subplot where Chell did in fact get married to a turret. Remnants of this subplot can still be seen in the game, specifically in the name of the disproportionally larger turret you might have spotted in the game, which is “the Turret Wife.”
In this twisted alternate narrative universe, Chell would run into a pile of turrets in the deepest corners of Aperture Science who would

Homestuck? More like homeSUCK. (An elaboration)At the risk of my watchers looking down on me, I've decided to express my distaste for homestuck.Homestuck? More like homeSUCK. (An elaboration)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It seems like everyone either, 1) Likes the fandom (art) of homestuck, but doesn't actually like homestuck itself, OR 2) Likes homestuck but can't stand the fandom surrounding it.
I, personally, don't appreciate either.
I find homestuck to be an incredibly mediocre...webcomic? that got really really blown up for whatever reason and now I cannot escape it. It's everywhere online. The overhype is oozing into every crevice of the internet like a mildly warm combination of masturbation-sweat and zit-puss. All of the fanart is blending together into one big clusterfuck of grey skin and candy corn.
The argument that's always presented to anyone that dislikes it is "WELL, KEEP READING, IT GETS BETTER".
I'm sorry, but if I've been sitting here reading something for as long as it could have taken for me to watch an entire movie and I'm still bored as all hell:

What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you
