Theatrics aside, it made me ponder on why Britain has this villainous reputation, and I started to compile a list:
The British Empire was the biggest drug-dealing organisation in history and made a fortune selling opium to China. In the mid 19th century, when the Chinese Emperor tried to stop them, they sent in The Nemesis – basically the Death Star of the era – which proceeded to decimate the entire Chinese fleet. Then they stole Hong Kong.
In an emergency, such as a disaster or terror attack, an intelligence committee is convened. Its codename is “COBRA”.
The British military’s communication network is called “Skynet
The Shape of Things to ComeYou want change on DeviantArt. Everyone here has something they would change. We do listen and, yes, we can’t get everything done. Still, as a community, with any change we change together because we are all here together.The Shape of Things to Come2 months ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
We found major talent to join the DeviantArt team this year to help us assume responsibility for major change and deliver on it. In return, we will be calling on the whole community to exercise its responsibility of continuing to shape DeviantArt into the place where the global undercurrent of creativity feeds the future of popular culture.
DeviantArt is as binary as it is digital in its platform. We serve equally those who produce art as those who need to see art and engage with it. Creating the undercurrent is a function of tools as much as it is a function of community activity. Getting these two to work in unison has always been the secret sauce of DeviantArt – and every recipe for the sauce begins

The Three Problems with How we Learn Art
"I've been thinking about how and why we learn to draw for a few years now. I started self-analazing my own drawing and character design thought process when I began writing my first art instruction book, "Creating Characters with Personality". It was harder than I thought to verbalize how I've learned and how I process drawing. This has led me to start looking back at my artistic life and how I learned art. What made me learn the most? What drove me to draw and stick with it? What led to others I knew as a child to stop drawing? I think I'm ready to present some of those thoughts here on DA and hear what you think. So, this is part 1 of three in a series. I'm not sure where this is l

[UPDATE V. 0.1] Object-tan Contest!:iconmikeinel: has offered to draw the top 3 winner's Object-tans How awesome of him, yeah?[UPDATE V. 0.1] Object-tan Contest!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to announce an up coming contest! (I know this is out of the blue, the admins and I were contemplating it a while back but I think we're ready to take this on.)
The goal of the "object-tan" contest is to pick ANY object (Speakers, remote, printer... Lamp? ect.) and personify it, or turn it into a human(like) figure. Much like how Mike did for the Console Wars.
Now I think a big part of this contest is to go crazy, be creative and do things your own way. So there is no real restrictions. Just title the piece after the object you chose, and submit it to the folder I've set up for this contest.
August 20th (for now)
Enter as many times as you want! Make as many Object-tans as you want!
Care and Cleaning Your JewelryHere are some cleaning instructions for any of my hand crafted goods made from sterling silver, gold, copper, or brass.Care and Cleaning Your Jewelry1 month ago in Personal More Like This
The best way to clean fingerprints, smudges, and other minor surface grime off your jewelry and gemstones is with a soft, lint-free cloth like someone would use to clean their glasses. This is the safest, easiest way to clean your jewelry.
If you've got a quite a bit of dirt or grime on your jewelry, the best way to clean it yourself is with a soft toothbrush and dawn dish soap under running water. Be sure to plug your sink!!! Do not use toothpaste as a cleaning agent! Toothpaste is a mild abrasive and will put scratches on any metal surfaces! When you're done, damp it dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Over time, when wearing your jewelry, the finish will get scratched up a bit. It can't be helped. The best way to get rid of minor scratches is with a polish cloth. Polish cloths can usually be purchased at a local jewelry store, or some department stores, and a
Gemstone Species and the Parasitic Crystal.Edit.Gemstone Species and the Parasitic Crystal.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I need to add one thing to break any confusion.
Is the parasitic crystal a species?
Ok i know this may have caused a bit confusion. While the gemstone ponies are a species. The Parasitic Crystal is not a species.
Due to recent events. I am going to open source some of my concepts for others to use as I do dislike seeing things that recently are similar becoming closed and monetized.
There will be two things that will be opened for everyone. All you need to do is to atleast credit either me or ArcadianPhoenix depending on which choice you do make and wish to make an oc based on these two concepts.
The first concept is my firend's :Iconarcadianphoenix: 's gemstone ponies.
This species are born already infected with parasitic gems or crystals wthin them, usually these grow onto their bones and as they mature they can sprout out in different locations. The color of the gems or crystals are open to the user but the pattern is expected to be different fro

I can't take it anymore and I just have to let everyone know, I honestly don't care if you guys think I'm being an asshole or whatever but I'm just so over it.
This person is stealing characters left right and centre and its painfully obvious to see. Yet people are still sticking with her side for some reason.
It all started when Pinipy made me a journal skin as a gift for me, I adored the cute skin so I made a journal telling people you should go watch her and compliment her stuff, because she diserves it. Little did I know that I literally created a monster.
Just from that one journal I posted she gained watchers and became the next big thing. Everyones talking about her and saying how much they love her art ect. Please, I'm not being egotistical, I have eyes, I saw a very high increase of compliments/watchers and commissions.
I'm not a rude person and I never think anyone i

DashCon - How not to do a conventionIt seems like every week there’s a new convention going on, and this was no different. DashCon (purportedly the largest gathering of tumblr uses to date), was happening this weekend and... well... it fell apart in many gloriously horrible ways.DashCon - How not to do a convention5 months ago in Personal More Like This
First there were accusations of scamming, as the convention owners crowd-sourced $17,000 to secure the venue (which should’ve been done MONTHS in advance). All attempts to contact the hotel have resulted in the hotel saying there was no need to raise that money and that they never received any of it.
Then there were the cancelations. The Welcome to Nightvale people were flown in, but then told they weren’t going to be paid till AFTER they performed for everyone (which is already suspicious) and also told they weren’t getting reimberesed for the hotel, flight, food, etc. So sadly WTNV had to cancel at the last minute, resulting in the convention owners refunding patrons with “an extra hour in the ball pit.” The

But anyways... I'd love allsort to have a few friends with other oc's ;v; even make our own little 'mane 6' group, Just an idea, thought it would be kinda fun to have!
I plan on commissioning people to draw/ drawing allsort her friends together.
If you have any oc's that you'd like to do this with then please put your character's reference in the comments!~

Blender Tip: Managing Large ScenesSo, what happens when a scene grows large?Blender Tip: Managing Large Scenes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- The scene can become confusing and selecting the correct object(s) can be tricky.
- Frame rate will drop, notably when using 'complex' modifier stacks, using 1000+ objects (depending on your hardware), using complex geometry (many faces/vertices).
The quick fix would be to collapse modifier stacks and merge objects. But this isn't very helpful - what if you want to make changes to these objects later?
Here is a single tip that will help you create large scenes using Blender: group objects and link groups across files. This means that, one file ('large scene') will use grouped objects from one or several, other files. If one of the 'source files' is modified, the changes will be reflected to the target scene upon re-opening.
Group objects using CTRL+G
After creating a group, selecting any object that belongs to the group will pop the group in this object's properties under the... Groups tab. Typically this is where you edit the group n
