Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 20I’ve been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsFantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 202 years ago in Art Features More Like This
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can’t provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I’m sure you’ll agree, just click on their deviation.

Need help for the background?many people have asked for help with the backgrounds.Need help for the background?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
as a request is a bit vague! it's not like the human body or an animal..
the background is .. is .. the fucking universe!
cities, mountains, seas, forests, are a combination
of elements ALWAYS different :iconexploding-headplz:
I have not received help for these things..
I learned watching pictures and drawings in the last 2 years!
you have to watch thoooousands of landscapes and store them in your
"mental-database" to be able to invent new personal backgrounds.
it works with the perspective and the composition too!
observe and learn from the experience of others.
a sort of osmosis.
if you need pictures or inspiration I recommend this site
I love it..it's absurd.. sometimes I become depressed because
is too epic.. :iconrazycryplz:
but then I react and I try to improve!:iconlazymacho2plz:

COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!Hi guys!! Thank you as always to all watchers and everyone who faves and comments - I'm so sorry I don't have much time these days to reply to everything, but I definitely do read and appreciate them all!COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*
Any questions please feel free to ask!

Useful links (the forms are taken from these really helpful websites!):
Step one: Find out who the admin is, and their contact information. Also find out if a company is hosting their website.
The website should have a "contact us" page, where you can find email addresses, contact forms, and they might also have a copyright policy page. Find out their email and how to contact them. You can also use http://www.whois.sc/ to search for the registered owner of the webpage, sometimes.

1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they were a long way from being realistic. My contemplation came to an end when I realized I could spend less money and have a better one if I just made it myself. That is where

CONTEST IS OPEN"IN THE EMBRACE OF WINTER"CONTEST IS OPEN2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Each season brings a different experiences and emotions, different atmosphere, a different colour pallette.
Winter is a time for reflection and rest, a cycle of life-death-rebirth,
the inward journey, embracing darkness and silence.
Winter days are short, with long nights. The cold weather can make us sad and lethargic.
The season offers a sense of calmness and makes us feel peaceful.
The most romantic time of the year?
A snowy, frosty, cold world or rain and endless grey skies can be beautiful
but some people find that they become seasonally depressed as they receive less light in winter.
People feel tired and sluggish during winter. Too cold, gloomy, depressing?
Do you feel the winter blues or you enjoy the season?
Go back to your memories and keep your focus on your experience and emotions.
Show us your feelings about winter.
Show us your winter mood...now, in your past or childhood.

Thank you for all your support

JEFFERY!Hey guys! Sorry for being kinda dead lately. A lot of turbulent stuff is happening in my life right now, and on top of that, I just came down with a horrible cold! It's starting to look like the next episode of the Seer on Youtube is going to take significantly longer to produce. Unfortunately, it's likely that I'm going to need to recast some of the voices. When I've figured out exactly which characters need to be recast, I'll make a journal directly related to the topic with further information. In the meantime, I just wanted you to be aware of the slowdown. c:JEFFERY!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Modern Elite CSS Contest - Premium Prizes to winHi fellas,Modern Elite CSS Contest - Premium Prizes to win2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A new contest is in the house! Yes, you have heard me right! A new CSS contest with premium prizes to grab for yourself is here for you!
You and I can see a lot of journal skins present in our DA's Journal & Gallery Skins category till date but we see only a few of them are modern style designs. As, many of you probably know that I mostly like modern design for my journal skins. So, I want you to go crazy with your own creativity and do the same for this contest.
Many of you might wonder, what is modern style web designs anyway? Please mind that I'm using the word "web design" here because journal skins in DA are nothing but web designs that we code in CSS. So coming back, a modern design generally..
1) has few colors
2) contains simple yet elegant images to make the design look smart
3) has all it's elements well arranged
4) has minimalistic touch (not always though)
5) includes high usage of typography
