Airplanes. No matter what you see in movies, airplanes are TINY as shit. But the Skymall mag is good for a laugh. (Who buys a watering fountain for their pet?)
I swear to (whatever god you worship) That if I see ANOTHER picture of a bottle or cup against a blurry photo background, on the front page, I am going to scream. OOOOHHHH you know how to use the focus on your camera. Good for you, you are a real photographer! (Seriously. Respect to the artists that can do this AS WELL as other good photography...but if that's all you do, come on.)
"Artistic nudes" Or as I like to call most of it "HOLY SHIT I GOT A GIRL TO POSE NAKED FOR ME." Seriously. Just taking a picture of a naked girl is NOT 'Artistic nude.' It's porn. I would know, I write it. If the photo has another element to it, or even some real artistic value BESIDES just tits, then yes, it's artistic nude. However, most of the shit I see on here isn't. It's porn. Which is fine, just don't call it 'A
Too SoonIn one of my recent comics I casually mentioned the shooting at The Dark Knight Rises premiere in Colorado. The comic wasn't about the shooting, nor was it making light of the shooting. However, some people weren't able to see past that and felt it was offensive and in poor taste.Too Soon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am really sorry that my comic offended anyone. It was never meant to trivialize the deaths of the victims of that event, nor was it trying to make fun of them. I was never suggesting or inferring that you should ignore the tragic event, nor trying to be dismissive of the event. I wasn't saying you shouldn't feel empathy, or even sadness over the event. And I especially wasn't trying to paint myself as being uncaring towards the victims.
If you'd like to help the victims through this terrible event, please check out this http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/20/aurora-theater-colorado-shooting_n_1690093.html?utm_hp_ref=impact here. You can help by donating to The Colorado American Red Cross chapters, donate

Thanks guys for your support.....I don't have much time to reply but I've read all your nice messages!!!!
To take away any doubt I'll show you pictures of my drawings I did with my camera...
As you can see, the pics are all original and handmade with copic markers, ballpoint pen and colored pencils.
Some of these drawings are not found in my DA gallery....
This is my proof.
Now I hope this person doesn't accuse me of stealing also her friend's tablecloth.....
but seriously.....can I have copied something from this person?

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

I really can't wait to get out of this house for a long time. I just really want things to work out in the end and for my parents to chill out.

From time to time, I think I am very lucky in that my existence is caught up in what I do. I write, because I can't not write. And I draw for the same reason. Other people, apparently, are not this lucky. So I guess this journal is for them. Anyone who has ever doubted, anyone who believes they are a hack, anyone who believes that creativity done right flows all the time and never, ever stops (that's crap, by the way.) And, perhaps most importantly, that the Internet is the end, all be all of Art.
I personally have a difficult time doing everything the Internet demands. I have difficulty with Twitter, I'm lousy at my Facebook, and my account here on DA is probably the only thing that I check consistently. But, that's because I have a life. I have a project that I'm worki

Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is one of my favourite games of all time, surpassed only by Morrowind, and I've been planning for a long time to put together a feature with original artwork. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since almost all Oblivion-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
Oblivion is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2006. The central plot revolves around the efforts to thwart the fanatical cult Mythic Dawn that plans to open the gates to the demonic realm of Oblivion. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are quest lines for several guilds, and many side missions. Despite being less diversified and immersive than Morrowind, the incredible amount of quality third-party add-ons add a lot of scope and replay value to the game.

I'm such a hypocrite for ranting on this subject.Changing for people: The WORST thing you could ever do.I'm such a hypocrite for ranting on this subject.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I cannot tell you how many people I know that insist on the option of "changing" for the person you like/love/adore/respect. One person in particular this journal is going out to. I'm about to rip you a new ass hole, bro. If you don't get this through your thick head I will be royally pissed off. -.-
*Of course, I say these words with love.*
You are making a mondo mistake.
Changing for anyone is stupid on so many levels. Whoever doesn't like it can go fall in their own pathetic little ditch because we're all awesome, some people just don't see it like our friends and loved-ones do. If this person REALLY loved you and REALLY cared about you in the first place, they'd take you as you are and live with it. Embrace you. LOVE you. Anyone who asks, wants, or feels you should change should have an "auto-eject" button slapped across their face. They are not worth anything.
Who ever is "making" you change, is a self-centered son of a bitch
Updates, at long last.Yeah, my journal entries and submissions in general are becoming very few and far between... sorry folks, to anyone still watching. I'm doing my best to get my act together and start posting more often.Updates, at long last.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since there's no point to this journal but to inform you all of what's going on, let's get the basics over and done with.
What did I think of the ME3 extended cut? I liked it. I won't post any spoilers because I know a few of my watchers haven't finished the game yet, but overall it gave me closure and answered all my biggest questions, as well as addressed the problems I had with it initially. It also changed my perspective and made me choose differently from my previous playthroughs. But that's all I'll say for now. If anyone wants a more in-depth discussion, note me.
Besides that I've been drawing quite a lot. I've got way too many WIP's lying around. I'll upload some in the days to come, but for now I'll be uploading two deviations, both remakes of old OC portraits of mine in digita

World War 3 may just be months away, with much of the middle east currently being blown apart by missiles and the locals setting their neighbours on fire, but the real news is that the Twinkie, the USA's primary contribution to world cuisine, could cease to be.
"You eat those?" I hear people ask. Hell no. Never eaten one in my life. There's something about their unnatural, chemical-yellow colour and that they have a half-life rather than a use-by date that just sets off one too many alarm-bells.
In fact, I'm pretty sure that if you read the print on the pack, you'll find asbestos to be a key ingredient.
Even John McClane can't keep one down, and he took out a building full of terrorists with nothing but his bare feet and a Santa hat.
Which leads to my point: Without the Twinkie, there are SO many lines from SO many classic movies that future generations just a

Additionally, the following comment was provided:
A member of staff has reviewed this deviation and has determined that the theme itself, or one or more details present in the scene, has made the work unacceptable for submission here.
As such this deviation has been removed in accordance with our policies and should not be resubmitted."
"Explicit Pornography"?! Aw, jeez, guys. You must have the worst collection of porn on the planet to think that was explicit.
A 90s Rochelle Swanson outing was more explicit that that pic, and that stuff got aired, uncut, on terrestrial UK TV (god bless you Channel 5, you made the young Jack jolly).
I believe that, for something to be labelled "explicit", SOMETHING must be visibly going in SOMEWHERE. Such was not the case in the offending image,
