Reproduction & Growth
Unlike humans, nymphs can procreate in two ways. The first, is Sexual Reproduction, the second Asexual Reproduction. Nymphs generally have the choice on how they want to reproduce, if they want to at all, but on occasion their patron god/goddess/titan may prevent a certain kind of reproduction, or reproduction at all. All nymphs reflect their mothers traits.

New Start....and broken limbsHey guys! First off I wanna start with wishing you all a great 2012. Its gonna be a good one. Second, I want to apologize for the lack of artwork. Senior year has been beating the living hell out of me. But its whatever. Im feeling much more inspired now and will hopefully be making new works soon. Today is the first day in a loong time that I actually have time to update my journal. See, yesterday a friend and I went to our bestfriends house to cheer him up cause he's heartbroken and while running down the stairs i tripped and practically broke/fractured my ankle. I think. Cause I cant walk at all. Its 9am right now, so I'll be going to the doctor's later. But after a good movie and some homework, i should get the rest of the day just for drawing. Which obviously is a good thing. 4 more months and i graduate.......Im so excited. then COLLEGE, dear God. this is all going by too fast...i really dont wanna grow up. I guess thats all I have to say, so have a great dayNew Start....and broken limbs2 years ago in Personal More Like This

It's almost six months that I attend Deviant Art, and in that time I have met many people with qualities that go beyond those (great) artistics one.
The numbers are always cold, but they continue to surprise and flatter me: more than 2,000 watchers and almost 30,000 pageviews are unexpected and flattering numbers.

Halloween Contest- Prizes needed (CLOSED)EDIT: Contest is now closed! No more entries! Thank you to all who participatedHalloween Contest- Prizes needed (CLOSED)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain (pronounced "sah-win").
The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. Samhain was a time used by the ancient pagans to take stock of supplies and prepare for winter. The ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped and the deceased would come back to life and cause havoc such as sickness or damaged crops.
The festival would frequently involve bonfires. It is believed that the fires attracted insects to the area which attracted bats to the area. These are additional attributes of the history of Halloween.
Masks and costumes were worn in an attempt to mimic the evil spirits or appease them."

dA still alienates gay community with prejudiceSince the beginning of this site, dA has been repeatedly criticized for its homophobic approach to art. Homosexual couples (specifically male-male representations because lesbians are hawt, guys) in particular have been repeatedly targeted by the site's admins for deletion, an occurrence so pervasive that one deviant, ~reapersun was able to hold an entire contest to attempt to illustrate the line of discrimination.dA still alienates gay community with prejudice3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You might say, "the site is simply prudish!" Not true. They have an entire section labeled "fetish". Pictures of women having intercourse with tentacle monsters? De rigeur. Buick sized breasts oozing buckets of milk? Fine. But two consenting adults (especially male adults) touching? Kissing? My GOD, what filth!

I noticed that a lot of people don't know how to search for their photos on the internet, so here is a short tutorial. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about art thieves, but i still think it is important to look out for them.
1. visit Google.com
2. Go to the page of the photo you want to search and click "show image"
3. Copy the Link and paste it into google.
4. This page should open, click "search by image".
5. Now you can browse trough the results.
6. The less results the happier you should be.
EDIT : You can also use websites like : tineye.com and iqdb.com
This was pointed out to me by some people, personally i have no experience with them, but i am sure that they work too.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and $spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,

From the Ground UpI'm making my own Monster Manual. I'm kind of getting fed up with D&D monsters more and more as I read books on myth, legends and what not. I finally decided I would just make my own Monster Manual from the floor up, only it would be more accurate to the lore of the creature being displayed generally. And what I mean when I say generally is that a lot of these creatures are form separate lore, cultures, and times, so to cohesively put them together in the same world you have to bend a little, not as much as D&D (they got ridiculous with it) but just a bit. For instance, I put Hydra under the species of Wyrm even though it's a creature born from a titan; but in order to have that I have to have Greek creation myth in my world and if I have that than what about non-Greek monsters and on and on, the snowball effect of it is apparent, as you can see. So this is why a Hydra is no longer the child of a titan and a species of Wyrm instead. We could say that the Greeks THOUHGTFrom the Ground Up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why do I like Fantasy as a genre?Some time ago, on a forum I often visit, one of the posters asked a question about fantasy-movies from childhood. Specifically which fantasy-movies later on influenced our approach to RPGs, such as D&D. I haven't played that many fantasy-themed RPGs myself, but there are several films and tv-shows that made me like the genre already as a child and why I still have a fondness for it.Why do I like Fantasy as a genre?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When I was a small child many of Disney's older movies were released on VHS, so I became acquainted with knights, dragons and other medieval-type fairy-tale elements through these. Though at that age I couldn't really appreciate the romance between Sleeping Beauty and Prince what's-his-face, so I was rooting for Maleficent and her goons. Especially when she transforms into a dragon ❤, which to this day defines for me what a dragon must look like to be counted as a proper dragon. I remember when I first saw Ralph Bakshi's half-animated take on Lord of the Rings. It was shown on TV many times during my
The HackingHello,The Hacking2 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is the founder speaking. I have been away from this group for some time, due to extenuating personal circumstances which kept me away from Deviantart in general. It was brought to my attention that our group was hacked, our artwork was deleted, and lewd pictures were uploaded. I wish I could say that I was surprised by what happened to our group, but I'm not. I wish I could say that I am disappointed by the behavior of the person (or people) responsible, but I'm not, because in order to be disappointed one must have expectations which behavior falls short of, and that is simply not the case here. I knew it was only a matter of time before someone would try something like that. There are many places in the Bible that said we would be hated and reviled for the cause of Christ. Not everyone can accept the truth, and the people who know they are in the wrong yet find the truth unpalatable (for whatever reason) are in the worst place of all. But none of that changes the
How tall is a dwarf?How tall is a dwarf on the 28mm scale?How tall is a dwarf?3 months ago in Personal More Like This
If a normal sized human is 28mm to eye level, then how tall is a dwarf to the top of their head?
No one could seem to give me a straight answer. So i went out and bought a bunch of minis. They vary in size. Hasslefree dwarves are about 7/8" (20mm) tall, Reaper Mini International's 'Freja Fangbreaker' is 25mm tall. Scibor mini dwarves are averaging 22-25mm tall.
So i have a judgement call to make before i proceed forward: My 'TrollSlayer' Dwarven princess I scaled 25mm to the top of her head. (same size as 'Freja')
Is she really on the 32mm, or is she on the 28mm scale? Based on what Scibor and Reaper is doing, im going to classify her on the 28mm scale.
Scibor minis is doing some pretty awsome stuff. Heres one of their dwarves if you've never heard of them: http://sciborminiatures.com/en_,shop.php?art=855
Im totaly lovin their stuff. Its very inspiring.
