Mourning for Icarus by H.J. Draper 1898
The Theme- ART:
We want you to recreate the story of Icarus, be that modern, or ancient using stock and resources available on DeviantART.
The Theme - STOCK:
We want you to recreate the story of Icarus, in stock form! Is your Icarus male or female? Are your wings made from feathers and wax or something more magical?
The Story: Icarus
Son of Daedalus who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. Daedalus had been imprisoned by King Minos of Crete within the walls of his own invention, the Labyrinth. But the great craftsman's genius would not suffer captivity. He made two pairs of wings by adhering feathers to a wooden frame with wax. Giving one pair to his son, he cautioned him that flying too near the sun would cause the wax to melt. But Icarus became ecstatic with the ability to fly and forgot hi

SPANK ME! For CharityThis was inspired from a few things. After the birthday I was playing around with my avatar and thought I might create a game involving it but then I thought of Topicality's recent endeavor and decided to turn it into something for charity instead.SPANK ME!

The charity I have selected is LUMOS, which was co-founded by JK Rowling.
My goal is $1,000 USD
This will last until the goal is met or September 16, 2011.
For each person that changes his or her to one similar to mine, I will increase my donation amount by 10¢. For your avatar to count you must COMMENT THIS JOURNAL. I will reply to you with "Spanked!" and you are free to change you avatar back.

Exclusive Species are a Waste of Everyone's Time.There seems to be a growing trend here at Deviantart, Exclusive Species.Exclusive Species are a Waste of Everyone's Time.5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Exclusive Species: An open, free (not tied to a story)original species created by an artist, limited to anyone but close friends, on the grounds that what they've made is being persecuted creatively, hence exclusive.
What I target here are the species that the artist adamantly refuses any new ideas, or personal spin-offs of that idea. That, and those who attack an individual for making an Original character in this species. Here's a few things that should be pretty evident that species artists on DA tend to forget that I will go over in detail.
NO ONE IS GOING TO CARE IN 20 YEARS
You can NOT limit what a person does. You can only take unnecessary steps to make it more a pain in the butt for both you.
Contrary to popular belief, there is not a mass group of people waiting to draw your creation badly.
An OC in your exclusive species is a creative

As many of you will remember from last year’s festivities, August 13th is a very special day for lefties everywhere! Left Handers’ Day is a day where we can all get together freely and talk about our scissor preferences, smudged writing and how many times we’ve been heard: “Hey! Are you left handed?”.
Of course, we can do that any day. But on the 13th of August we have an awesome excuse. And once again, we’re providing you with the perfect excuse to put on that thinking cap and grab your art supplies to create something awesome for the LHA 2012 contest!
There are two sides to every coin: good and evil, day and night, law and chaos, left and right. This year’s theme is all about opposites, however you want to interpret them! Your piece can include any and all opposites, limited to only your imagination. It doesn’t have to relate to left-handedness, but just contrasting themes and o

Snowflakes + Block Abuse = BFFsYesterday I had the pleasure of experiencing yet another DA phenomenon that has been happening to me more and more lately: person A contacts me to innitiate a conversation, I start talking to them, then they block me because they don't like what I'm saying.Snowflakes + Block Abuse = BFFs3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this particular case it was a white knight saying that I, at 26, was a "worthless person" because I was "picking on" her teenaged friend, and how would I like it if someone was picking on me? Apparently me saying "Your work is traced and you should really state that and say what your source material was" on one occasion a few months ago and then explaining to the same person a couple weeks ago that uploading screen caps from a video was considered copyright infringement is now considered "picking on" someone. This person has since posted a couple call-out journals about me and is now saying that I am one of the "bitches" that has caused her to leave DA for a while even though I haven't spoken to her for a few weeks now (she
