It has been one week since the teaser trailer for the first of the Disney owned Star Wars movies was released. Twitter and Facebook nearly broke under the deluge of postings of the trailer and frame by frame commentary of it. Each commentator hoping to spot something everyone else had missed.

Lived Long and ProsperedThe great Leonard Nimoy has died, age 83.Lived Long and Prospered4 months ago in Personal More Like This
There’s not really much I can write about the chap or his impact on sci-fi culture that you’re not already aware of. We all knew and loved him as Spock from Star Trek. Hell, I named one of my webcomic’s characters after him.
Nimoy never forgot about his fans, either, and how it is they who ensured his lasting popularity. It’s telling that it was he who cameoed in the recent Trek films and not Shatner.
Being the awesome man he was, his final words to the public (by way of twitter) were “LLAP”.
“Live Long and Prosper”.

25,000 die from hunger every day, a million is withering away in prisons due to the war on drugs for victimless crimes, human rights violations abound, preventable disease and lack of clean water is killing millions per year, banking cartels immune from prosecution are stealing trillions, drones are blowing up children in half, etc, etc..
Fuck all that, right? The media didn't tell you to care. Take the red pill, friends, and walk away. Keep your mind under your own control. This is not a lack of compassion the three fellow human beings who tragically lost their lives today. It's a lack of respect for those who use every marketable tragedy to further their ends and profits. I
Facepalm-Worthy Series 2JUNE 2006. 3rd uni year (dunno why it seems I had all my fails in my uni period)Facepalm-Worthy Series 23 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Unfortunately I use to be a person who has SO intense and vivid dreams (and really bad ones). One day this played a dirty trick on me:
I left my cell phone on my bedside table as usual and went to sleep because next day I had an exam at 9:00 a.m.
It seems I was that obsessed and nervous about my exam that I dreamt my best uni friend phoned me at 8:00 a.m. or so to tell me I must not forget that our "Preventive Medicine III" teacher postponed the exam one hour later.
Ok, I just believed that dream.
My alarm clock rang and I totally passed. I slept 45 mins more. Now imagine my face when I went to uni by bus one hour later and saw all my classmates coming out of the classroom rather than entering it :iconaloneplz:
Just then I understood all.
I just wanted to leave this world.
Why is Fanfiction Considered Bad?Why is Fanfiction Considered "Bad"?Why is Fanfiction Considered Bad?6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Despite their frustrating nature to many, the fact is that stereotypes almost always have a grain of truth at their center. A stereotype is a generalization, and a generalization would not exist if there wasn't some evidence supporting it. The generalizations about fanfiction is that they're typically unoriginal and poorly-written by pre-teens and teens who can't take criticism and think they're awesome. And while there are many brilliant fanfiction writers out there, the truth is the stereotype has much more evidence than they would like to be taken seriously. There are a lot of very poorly-written and unoriginal fanfics out there.
But the question is, why fanfiction? Why is it that this piece of creative expression in particular finds itself with such a massive portion of rough compared to diamond?
The first is the fact that not everyone takes to writing and creating naturally. Some people do it really well by instinct, creating stories that flow a
America: The ideaPersonally, I enjoy the hate revolving around America, nowadays. I rather like the image that most people have made the common American man. An overweight, middle aged, white guy. At least if that, if it were true that every American was indeed that stereotype, things would be simple. If everyone in America, or any nation, for that matter, put aside their personal beliefs, and worked towards a goal larger than themselves, like other great nations before us, we could achieve so much more.America: The idea2 years ago in Personal More Like This
However that's not the case. The title 'American' doesn't just extend to one culture, race, gender, or religion. Not in my opinion, anyway. America, in reality, is a mixing pot of different cultures from around the world. Indeed, America's past has shown White, christian dominance over every other culture, for three centuries, and quite frankly, that's what carried us through World War 2, but thanks to growing tolerance, and the liberties bestowed by the Founding Fathers of the United States, other cul

BullyingA teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.Bullying4 years ago in Personal More Like This

DA's Commission System and Minimum WageDA has recently announced a new portal for users to search through those offering commissions to find artists they want to support.DA's Commission System and Minimum Wage2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The commissions system will be handled using DA's internal currency system of points, of which DA takes a royalty from.
Commissions are allowed to start at 10 points each for any type of art produced, from rough sketches and small icons to full digital works. Commissions is a great way for artists to offer their services, but are we creating a low-wage market where over-abundance of supply and lack of unification undercuts everyone?
That is to say, how can we guarantee that artists get paid fairly for their work?
10 points is roughly 13 cents. 1000 points may seem like a large commission, but it's really only $10.
Right now DA takes a 20

PE: 10 tips and tricks not very known about PS10 useful and not very known Photoshop tricksPE: 10 tips and tricks not very known about PS3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Saving your .psd with all layers hidden makes a smaller file compared to saving it with all layers visible.
2. You can use the Crop Tool to quickly increase the canvas size of an image by holding down Ctrl + Alt whilst dragging the Crop Tool outside the current canvas.
3. If you want to see only one of your layers at a time, hold down Alt whilst clicking the eye icon of the layer. (do it again to show all layers again)
4. Holding down Alt while in a dialog box turns the Cancel button into a Reset button, so you can reset the values back to default.
5. If you want to just quickly check a very heavy .psd file, you can hold down Shift + Alt while clicking the Open button. This way Photoshop will open a flattened version of the file.
6. You can change the gray background that surrounds your image with the Paint Bucket Tool, just hold down Shift and make click on the background.
7. Not a very unknown tip, but if y

The least important, but worth a mention. Honestly, I think the graphics were a testament to how rushed out this game really was. They were a downgrade from RE5. Most objects and side characters were angular, while any close-ups just looked terribly grainy.

GBA4iOSOkay, so I've got my entire school playing Pokemon Emerald right now. It's awesome! So I found this Gameboy Advanced emulator app for iPhones and downloaded it, and my friends saw it and I downloaded it for them, they've spread it now, now practically the entire school is playing it: on the announcements the principal said phones will be taken up in class if "the Gameboy Games are open on your phones" and my friend just started playing pokemon for the first time yesterday, went home and played for 5 hours straight and got her phone taken away by her parents for not doing her homework. It's spreading like wildfire, and its so nice to see my entire school excited about the same thing for once. In my grade, we have 800+ kids, and it's the same for Freshman, Juniors, and Seniors, totaling about 3,000 kids, and at least 1 kid in nearly every class has it downloaded, and at least half the class if I have the class.

Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!

Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy4 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr

Karma's A BitchI just saw this show on Investigation Discovery. And it WAS GREAT! It's hilarious to see cheaters, players, and absolute shitdips get their just desserts. Plus, it kind of gives one hope that what goes around DOES in fact come around. One story was about a man whose wife found out he was seeing a girl on the side, divorced him and sold their house with a sign that said "Husband left us for a 22 year old". The next was of a guy who was playing 4 women, who then ambushed him when one of the four tied him to a bed in a motel. The third story though... Was one that made my stomach turn. A woman got involved with a married man who raped her, then had her framed so he would beat the rape charge, she was saved when his NEXT victim saw what he was doing and ratted him out to the cops.Karma's A Bitch2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The thing that gets me about these stories and the many other stories I hear about cheaters, players, and scumbags is that these guys are doing way more collateral damage than they are to the women they victimize

The first episode is finally done! Left 4 Delirium is basically a crazy compilation of the antics me and the Lady face while playing L4D2. While there's a lot of videos with the same or similar set-up, we've tried adding some stuff to make it unique and stupidly hilarious. Keep an ear out for some subtle bot dialogue!
This is episode 1 of what will hopefully be a whole series of crazy videos. We're already planning what levels to do, how to get a better video and sound quality, and what horrible stuff to do to the bots next. You'll have to forgive the pixelatedness of the first video, we're hoping to improve that, as well as difficulty level later on too. Any tips or advice are welcomed.
Enjoy the show!

You know, I'm quite fine with having some paid services and perks. I mean I even had a few months of Premium Membership myself in the past so I'm not knocking the idea behind it but what bugs me is taking things that where formally free and came with DA and making them paid services now.
Want to avoid playing the slippery slope fallacy but it does make me worry that it could drive stripping more features away from basic accounts over time piecemeal.
