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

Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSIntroduction about making handmade books2 years 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)3 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

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
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 RC23 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.

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 irrelevant4 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.

The Ever Evolving Icon
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?

How I (Finally) Got Good SkinI get lots of compliments on my skin in my photos. I got told yesterday on my latest set how nice it was. I won't ever deny it; I use photoshop to take out distracting blemishes, but for the most part, my skin is how you see it. I wanted to go into a bit more depth on how I got to this place.

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

Negative/Aggressive attitude: Mild.
Views: about 455
Comments: Four. (8 if you include tumblr)
Comments about being offended: 1
Comments agreeing with the opinion: 2
Assessment: Majority of readers did not seem to be bothered by the comments or did not read them. May be due to how mild the attitude was. The drawing also did not contain offensive text. Sherlock Fans for the most part did not seem very vocal or set on telling me to give the series a chance. Could be because of limited fan base.
Conclusion: Someone's moderately rude attitude will more than likely be ignored by fans and may still receive favs/watches. Mild Attitude doesn't seem to completely stop people from favoriting. However lack of comments on the matter make this evaluation hard to compl

Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a
