In Memory of Leonard Nimoy...I just heard the news that Leonard Nimoy, Spock's actor, passed away yesterday. This is the first time one of the original Star Trek cast has died since I've seriously been a part of this fandom. Some of you may remember me telling you how I'd watch the VHS tapes of some of the movies (particularly The Voyage Home) when I was a very small child, but that I didn't really think much about Star Trek afterward, until the 2009 "reboot" came out and I wanted to watch all the originals again. I do vaguely remember the day, when I was still quite small, when my mother saw in the newspaper that DeForest Kelley had passed away, and I remember somewhat more clearly, in my mid-teens, the day that I stopped halfway down the stairs while my grandmother was watching the news, and I heard the words "Scotty beams up to Heaven," and saw George Takei talking about their late friend James Doohan. I felt a little pang of sadness each time, but if I had already become as attached to Scotty then as I am nIn Memory of Leonard Nimoy9 months ago in Personal More Like This

a little theroy i came up with-updated-As you know/should know SOPA keeps trying to remove all fan art and fan pages on the interneta little theroy i came up with-updated-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Amost all art is fan art
Im talking Mona Lisa,Saint George and the dragon,Animal drawings,clothes drawings,WAX WEBPAGES ON FACEBOOK,TREE ART
because tecnacily none of the people who made the paintings/drawings/web pages actually created them
Did Lenardo Da Vinci create all women before he drew the mona lisa? NO
Did a Artist who draws animals create dogs or cats or birds? NO
Did a Tree artist create trees?NO
Did the person who makes and sell wax and sells wax to my mom create the idea of wax? NO
So basicly amost all art is in fact fan art

PE: Traditional ShadingTraditional ShadingPE: Traditional Shading2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello. This is iDJPanda on the topic of shading!
When I usually start into the shading process of something, I always struggle to see which kind of technique I can use to give the piece of art the type of wow that I want. But just like anything, there are MANY ways to do it! This can help you use different shading techniques for different textures. I'm gonna give you a few different ways you can shade (Try to shake it up! ). If you have any other ways you shade, please feel free to tell me!
One of my favorite, in this technique of shading, you go against what all elementary teachers told you. You scribble! When you shade like this, you'll come out with something that looks like this.
Using circular motions, you generate different shades. Spending more time, swirling makes the certain areas you want darker, and the less you swirl makes the other areas lighter.

Pokemon is ForeverAn incongruous collection of people lined the sidewalk outside the local video game retailer just before opening on March 6th, 2011. The first in line were a pair of teenage boys in baggy jeans and band shirts, skateboards tucked under their arms. Next was a 9-year-old boy and his mother, followed by a 20-something female with spiky purple hair, a skull and crossbones on her belt. Then there was a young teenage girl, dressed all in yellow, red circles painted on her cheeks and a stuffed Pikachu tied to the handlebars of her scooter. Then a pair of young twins, a boy and a girl, with their mother, and three preorder tickets between them. Two college boys waited impatiently while talking too loudly about their strategy for the upcoming game. There was the 20-something couple, arms tangled about each other, their female friend eyeing the mid-thirties man behind her, who typed a business email on his cellphone. The line continued to grow…Pokemon is Forever1 year ago in Art Features More Like This

Last March, I proclaimed "what the hell, I'm going to write a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fanfic." I took those words, and posted them on the Internet for thousands to read, thousands to judge me by, and even left the door open for thousands to potentially drop a comment about how sour a turn my life must've taken to have consciously confessed to the Internet, with my real first and last name adorning the top of my dA page, that I actually had aspirations and ambitions to writing fanfiction for My Little Pony. Now whenever a future employer does a background check on me, they will learn that I was so moved by a show made for little girls that for the first time in my life I wanted to write fanfiction for it. &

I know it haven't been such a long time since I had my last giveaway, but I was thinking on doing another one anyways. You see, I've gotten a lot of points lately that I don't know what to do with, so insted of me keeping them and wasting them on stuff I don't really need was I thinking that I might do a premium membership giveaway insted. In that way someone will get something useful insted of me just wasting the points I have. ^w^
Anyone may particapate, you don't need to be a watcher of mine. All I want you to do is that you fave this journal so I can select a winner later through this website https://www.random.org/.
I might also do an art giveaway together with this premium membership giveaway. Since only one person will be able to win a premium membership. In that case a few random people will be able to win a drawing like this
AmbitionMy profile page states that I'm not a professional artist.Ambition2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I put it up there, nice and bold, so there would never be a mistake about that.
Yet, seeing the messages I receive, I think many people get me wrong on that one.
I don't state this whole not-being-a-professional-thing because I think my art sucks and I somehow desperately want people to reinforce me. No, I state this because I'm not a professional in the sense that art isn't my job. I'm not doing art for money, and that's the simple reason why. I never took art commissions and I've never even really tried to do so. Because I do art for the enjoyment alone.
Nice statement, you'd say. But you know what the strange thing is? People try to guilt talk me a lot.
Tell me that I'm low on ambition, that I would be able to make it if I really wanted, or even that I'm wasting my talent by just making art for my own enjoyment. Because "If you're good at something, you shou

Or I will pay Manson what you think Manson got coming – the music has make Manson into Abraxas Devil, and I’m SURE you would want some of what I got from what I got. It’s a far out balance.

deviantART was on TV + join the art challenge!A long time ago (about 24 hours), in a galaxy far, far away (down the road in Hollywood), comedian and television host Chris Hardwick introduced a segment on his late-night Comedy Central show — aptly titled @midnight (get it?) — that got many of us at deviantART all aflutter.deviantART was on TV + join the art challenge!2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
First of all, if you love the Internets and you haven't seen @midnight yet, you're missing out on some serious lulz. A few nights a week, Hardwick invites some comedian pals on the show for some Geek-Centric Improv Comedy. Sort of like a British Quiz Show brought to you by Reddit. Or "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" with slightly less dancing, but an equal amount of thick-rimmed glasses and awkward sexual tension.
In a segment called "Star Weird" on Monday's episode, Hardwick's guests had to choose which of two artistic descriptions was an actual deviation on deviantART. YES, MOM, HE SAID DEVIANTART'S ACTUAL NAME ON TV! MUCH WOW! The comed
