Reposting art on Tumblr and other sitesLike most tumblr artists, I have a huge issue with reposting art. Reposting, if you don’t already know, means just uploading the image from your own dash and making it into a new post, making your blog the source of the post. This is not acceptable in any way! Just recently I’ve had so many instances where people just take my art in general or WYDPAW (Walking your dog in a post-apocalyptic world) images and repost them.Reposting art on Tumblr and other sites5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Why is this harmful? It’s because you are directly impacting the traffic the owner of said content, and I am especially upset in the case of WYDPAW because I want all the sources to direct back to the actual graphic novel so people can follow! Like most creators of online comics or graphic novels, I put a lot of effort into this thing I’m working on and want it to have as much exposure as possible through my own original source. It doesn’t make it any more justified or legal if you add credit in the tags or

Quantusum - Wingmakers BookHey my watchers!Quantusum - Wingmakers Book3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Maybe you remember my picture "An Undiscovered World"...
In the description I said it is for an anonymous client and that I cannot tell much about the project... But now I can reveal the secret!
It is the cover of a book called "Quantusum", which is coming soon, written by the founder of the popular internet website "The Wingmakers". Maybe some of you know them! I am really excited about the whole thing! I have already read one chapter of the book, in which the Quantusum (the being I drew) was described. It was so exciting and wonderfully written and I can tell you the book will be awesome!
So if you are interested in purchasing the book once it is out, you can sign up with your e-mail adress and get noticed, once the book is released! Here is the link to the page: http://www.quantusum.com/
TUTORIAL - Tips for All ArtistsHello everyone!TUTORIAL - Tips for All Artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have written a tutorial like this before here. But recently I have had more thoughts about it that I decided to share. As you may have noticed, I am not a professional artist, I am a hobbyist and self-taught, and what I will expose here is what I've learnt from my own experience. Even so, I hope this tutorial will be helpful to you!
Another note: English is not my first language, so I apologize if I commit any mistakes.
Feel free to correct my grammar any time, as well as make suggestions or asking questions!
This tutorial is for every kind of artist, but sometimes I will focus more on visual artists (since it's my speciality).
I believe that everyone can be an artist, and this tutorial has not only the purpose of providing advices and tips, but also motivation for all.

2011 As Seen Through Art2011 was full of emotional events the world around, and our community responded at unprecedented levels. From natural disasters to historical celebrations, entertainment milestones to tearful goodbyes, our community spoke out like no other community can — artistically, creatively, and emotionally. In many ways, last year marked the final chapter of a few eras, opening the door to new beginnings for 2012.

For many of us, the first “art gallery” to command our attention (and constant, even daily, monitoring) in our
lives existed within the pages of the local newspaper. It was called “the movie section” and its ever-changing movie
advertisements were like little frames that rarely contained less than pure magic for young imaginations.
The Film Poster has existed since the earliest days of silent movies and the pulse-elevating excitement of the
first sight of an upcoming adventure, action, or sweeping love story that we might have only “heard good things about”
still packs a psychic punch throughout movie lovers today.

The Street Photography of Chris Weeks
It was only after many long frustrating hours of trying to describe what’s so special about the photographs of cweeks...
That I finally realized I was trying to describe something that wasn’t there.
I finally realized that the magical something that sets cweeks’ works apart from others is that his camera disappears. There is no sense as you look at his photos of street scenes and other captures that you are looking through a lens, even the lens of a particularly talented photographer. There is a sense of simply walking through a town and seeing what you happen to see – without the

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

Ninja Turtles by lukekeith
The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin

Is it because of a bad upbringing or experiences?

I have been on dA for little over 15 months now, and before the Journal Portal, I was blind.
The first thing that leapt out at me was lolly's journals. Journals I read.
His account has now been deactivated, a thing I have to question.
Is there simply more at hand than corrupt deviants?
Is there corrupt staff too?
Looking at the oft-reported deviant Fuhrer-Glasses, I have reason to believe this.
Why isn't he banned?
I'm sure one day... he will be.
Why do some people feel the need to make everything into a joke?
Life isn't a joke.
Someone may even end up seriously injured, as stated in Yerdian's . She fears for her family.
The police anyone?

THE WITCHES POPPETThe Witches Poppet has a long, long history in Europe, and counterparts to it can be evidenced around the world (the Voodo Doll of Voudom & Santeria religions, the mandrake root etc.) .THE WITCHES POPPET3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Essentially, the Witches Poppet is a small doll, traditionally fashioned from wax or sewn from cloth. It is simple, featureless and is employed in sympathetic magick. The Poppet is individualised to represent a particular person by forming a magickal link via something personal - for instance, a lock of hair, fingernails, a scrap of handwriting, photograph or a combination of things (the more personal the better). These are attached to the Poppet, or, as in the case of the cloth-made ones, may be stuffed into it before sewing up the opening.
The Poppet becomes the focus of the rite and the aim is to directly influence the person thus represented. Intentions vary. A Poppet may be used to affect healing, love, prosperity or used for more baleful intentions (in the latter i

Alice's Abilities and PowerAlice is pretty much a devil in the skin of a young girl. Her powers are all fueled by her Wrath and Hatred, though she is responsible for countless of other evil deeds and endless sinning.Alice's Abilities and Power3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is so far my most sophisticated and well-thought-through character I've ever made.
I hope you will enjoy her as much as I did making her when i start drawing her down.
Sin oriented powers:
-Lust: Allows her to produce sharp, black tentacles from her back. These tentacles will rape it's victim and afterwards rip apart the victim from the inside out. Also, these tentacles can be used as blades for their sharpness, excellent for attacking multiple targets in mid-radius of large crowds.
Wrath- Alice's main sin. It amplifies her physical attacks along with the Requiem. It allows also for her to hack and chop victims in an unimaginable speed.
Envy: It allows Alice to copy any move or ability that her oponent posses.
Sloth: It drowns the nearby area in a heavy fog that makes the victim feel faint and

Clash of Titans Collab: Marios: 50/50 Links: 50/50Clash of Titans Collab: Marios: 50/50 Links: 50/504 years ago in Personal More Like This
Looks like we have our complete set!
So, I'll give everyone until Friday to make additional Links and Marios if they want. BUT. If the count is uneven by Friday, then we'll only be able to use some of them. Good luck!
-- Each member of our group can do only TWO Marios and TWO Links for our collab. You can choose to do both, or just one or the other. It's up to you.
-- Marios must be facing right, and Links must be facing left. This way when I put it together it'll look like they're about to clash -- like an army! For a visualization of this set-up, look here:
-- You may do any canon version of Mario and Link. This means anything from red overalls Mario, blue overalls Mario, Paper Mario, frog-suit Mario, Wind waker Link, Twilight Princess Link, bunny Link, Goron Link etc. Have fun and be creative!
-- But don't make up a version of Mario or Link that doesn't exist. That means no gender bending, no made-up suits for Mario.
