Elisa (aka spotted) steps out from behind the scenes as one of our intrepid Today Page senior editors to contribute her appreciation of “The Little Mermaid.” We hope it will be the first of many contributions to come, another hidden talent having been revealed by this longtime DeviantArt special projects manager.
It was 25 years ago that a redheaded mermaid made a splash in theaters ushering in a new era for the identity of the Disney princess.

Outlaw at the Bleeding Edge
of Independent Cinema
Movies featuring the latest in high tech digital effects, eye-popping CGI environments and ear-splitting surround sound, are often described as “pushing the envelope.” But they’re mega-million-dollar productions that are delivered back to the studios by the filmmakers precisely as pre-ordered. Rarely is there danger of disaster, so what envelope has been pushed?
“Envelope-shredder” might be a better designation for Brian Taylor...
Who, usually in collaboration with partner-in-mayhem Mark Neveldine, has given the world such films as Crank, Crank: High Voltage, Gamer, Pathology, and recently Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
Diccionario argento (Argentilupis) IIHooola (?Diccionario argento (Argentilupis) II in Personal More Like This
Segunda parte ^^ :NoMeDigas:
Primero que nada, quiero aclarar el "che", porque todo el mundo lo usa mal. Casi siempre lo ponen al final y noo, NO VA AL FINAL. Es como un "Hey", es un intento de llamar la atención de a quien le estás hablando. A lo sumo, si lo ponen al final, es como una queja, como un "Ufaa, che! Yo quería dulce de leche T-T" Eso. Escríbanlo bien, mierdass!
Otra aclaración: En Chile se dice "mina" y "mino", en Argentina no existe "mino". Es más, me suena rarísimo. Se puede decir chabon, pibe, flaco y etcétera. Una variación de "mina" es "minón", osea, cuando la mina está muuuy buena.
-Paja: Fiaca o masturbarse. Cuando se usa la segunda definición, en general se dice en frases como "hacerme una paja" o "me hice una paja". En los chabones es muy común la frase "me clavé una" refiriéndose a "hacerse una paja".
-Garchar: Tener relaciones sexuales o coito. En resumen, forma vulgar de decir "hacer el amor"
-Coger: Lo mismo que lo anterior pero más usado.
Diccionario argentino (Argentilupis)Bueno, mi amiga y yo que leemos fics de latin hetalia, en general pasa que la mayoria de los autores son chilenos y como a mi me dan consejitos para escribir mejor aca les dejo mi diccionario (? de argentilupis (Inventado por mi amiga (?) okk, ni tiene nombre pero ustedes entienden.

-Che: en general, va al principio de la oracion, es como para llamarte la atencion. Ej: Che, pasame la mayonesa (?
-Boludo/a: Acompaña la mayoria de las frases, se puede decir a un amigo porque en general no cuenta como insulto. Hay variaciones como el verbo "Boludear" y acotaciones como "bolu" (pero se usa mas la palabra completa) Ejs: Como andas, boludo? / Porque estaba boludeando y justo encontre un alien (? / Que haces, bolu?
-Pelotudo: Sinonimo de boludo, muy usado pero no tanto como boludo.
-Boludez/Pelotudez: Algo que es facil. Ej: La prueba esa era una boludez (Y reprobe (?)

No sé, por algún lado tenía que hacerlo.
Siento mucha impotencia por dos clases de personas: las que maltratan y las que se dejan de maltratar. Son ambos unos pelotudos. Las personas que maltratan deberían estar en la cárcel por arruinar psicologicamente a las personas que tienen contacto directo con ellos, y las personas que se dejan maltratar... ok, está bien, ya sé que cada uno tiene sus problemas que no les deja ver la realidad, pero por eso mismo, me caga encontrar personas que son lo mejor del mundo y a veces por culpa de otros idiotas tienen muy baja autoestima. Me cago en la gente. Y no, no estoy hablando de bullyng, vengo a quejarme más por los padres que maltratan y abusan de sus hijos, porque conozco ya bastante gente que, lo peor de todo, no piensa hacer nada para cambiar su situación.

Starting tomorrow, I will have the item in my shop and will have it there for a month. The item will be a miniature Boston cream pie charm, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross. At the end of the month I will make a lump sum donation to them.
I really hope this is not coming across as tacky or as a gimmick on my part to increase page views/sales/what have you. This is a very sad and horrible event that has happened and it has affected so many people. I would like to do my part in trying to help.

ROUND ONE OF SIXFOLD LEAGUE NOW COMMENCES
This round will be treated like a qualifier. We want you to show us what you can do, but don't go absolutely all out right at the start! A certain number of contestants (depending on how many participate in this round) will move on to Round Two.
In this round, your contestants will be having a ONE ON ONE BATTLE WITH YOUR FACTION'S ASSISTANT. You must show your character winning for your character to advance. Though the definition of "winning" is up to you! As long as it's clear (a draw would also be considered a victory). No switching Pokemon mid battle. You must pick one Pokemon and stick to it throughout the whole battle*.
*Note on the turn-based style fighting: it is like the games, but not exactly. Basically it just means taking turns, but you are more than welcome to mix it up as well. We won't penalize you for it.

Firstly, only those who finished round one are allowed this, as they are allowed to get up to six Pokemon on their team now. (The exception being if your NPC already has less than three Pokemon--in which case they may get another!) This is, as I stated above, reward for your hard work! Therefore you must have sent us your entry in a note, and it was judged. Now, unfortunately this means you're out of the tournament and now an NPC. So, does that mean you have to change your a

I’m very happy you have come here, for it proves you have shown interest in Moeras. This is of course not surprising, as I believe just about everyone eventually finds themselves drawn here. It’s a very peaceful place, yet at the same time can be as bustling as Cita Erbonde during a festival.

Our patron legendary is Articuno, which is rumoured to fly over the region every few years and cause the snows to fall.
There are two, close to three, main sections of Moeras. My home, the town of Nreole, is the “capital” of one culture, and also the capital of the province. We’re the indigenous to Moeras, which can sometimes lead to harsh feelings to the immigrant-originated Olanites, but I’ll have you know I hold no such quarrel!

Two new videos! Photoshop's 'Blend if' feature!Hey everyone, I made a couple of new tutorials that are now up on YouTube! They explain Photoshop's "Blend If" sliders and why you should be using them if you aren't already. They're kind of a hidden feature, but they'll make your life a million times easier.

2,400 free high-res NASA images for artistsI recently compiled a pack of around 2,400 free high-res Creative Commons NASA photos for artists to use in their work, you can check it out and download it below. I plan on putting more together as well, for free of course, so keep an eye out. Just make sure you read the usage info in the pack if you decide to use them. There's a torrent file available as well.2,400 free high-res NASA images for artists in Personal More Like This
I'm also offering up over 1,250 images of my own personal stock from Australia for super duper cheap at $6 as a way to help me offset the cost of my time in putting together the free resource packs. Check it out if that interests you at all. If not, no worries, but you can enjoy and use these free examples from the Australia pack
Hope you find the downloads useful and get some use out of them, take care!
Lazy Nezumi stroke smoothing for Photoshop.Hey everyone, just wanted to bring to your attention a plugin that might be useful for you. It's called Lazy Nezumi, and its main function is to help smooth your strokes out when you're drawing. So, if you want really tight, smooth lineart, or just clean lines in general it's pretty great. In a way, it lets you create a digital stroke closer to how you would on paper or a canvas, it just gives you more control. It's akin to the Lazy Mouse feature in Zbrush, or the Steady Stroke feature in Sketchbook Pro (which I'd highly recommend for anyone doing lineart, it has other great features as well).Lazy Nezumi stroke smoothing for Photoshop. in Personal More Like This
There's a free demo for 30 days you can try out first and see if you like it. It has other features as well, but the one I find the most useful is the "pulled string" method under position processing, when you click details. It's something you might have to try to understand, but it can be super useful.
The main issue I see is that
Download my brushset and learn brush groupingHey everyone, I just put up a new video showing a simple, yet super handy way to categorize and group your brushes in Photoshop. It's especially useful if you have a really big set like me, it makes it really easy to find what you need so you don't have to hunt around constantly. I've also provided a download link to my current set of brushes with the video.Download my brushset and learn brush grouping in Personal More Like This

death vigil out in julydeath vigil out in july in Personal More Like This
so, this july i am starting death vigil, published by image/top cow. it will be a monthly series limited to three 8-issue arcs, so there is a definitive ending. with this i have learned some of the things about publishing independent comics, and i am planning a video with some tips after i summarize my experiences. hopefully it will prove helpful for others to get their stuff published
but apparently rule 1 is promote preorders. preorders are crucial for independent books as they define the print runs, and are crucial to the sucess of the book.. so.. as my far more experienced friends told me to do....
death vigil is preorderable ...pretty much in any place or webstore that carries US comics.
you can find an extensive preview to issue 1 and much more here

what about ravine? ron marz assured me that he will be
chronicles of hateso...i woke up to a most unusual email today. my friend and writer on aphrodite9, matt hawkins asked me if i could give a shout out to this book, chronicles of hate as it was massively slipping under everyone's radar.chronicles of hate in Personal More Like This
it was most unusual for him to ask that, and usually i am shit at even promoting my own stuff... if it wasn't for my fans and readers...whoo boy XD
so i stood baffled as to how do i even do this... and then i looked at the files he had sent me...
f&/k it! i know exactly how to go about this!
if you want to have an ultimate tool of ever mastering the art of painting values, whether you like comics or not, this is your friggin book!
not kidding! this dude, Adrian Smith, wipes the floor with my value skills and composition skills XD
brilliant designworks, graphic novel is not of the wordy variety as he allows the art to tell the story, and genres and stories being very personal taste based i can't tell you whether or not it will be your c
you wanna get good....then don't be a hater!okay so here is a tipyou wanna get good....then don't be a hater! in Personal More Like This
i have seen in my life many artists who proclaimed they want to develop their skills, and kept bashing on everyone and everything on the way....and for some reason those guys never got anywhere...
here is why..
there is a value to different approaches, different styles. realism, manga , cartooney disney, my little pony, furries....don't waste your time tryint to bash any of the stuff you don't personally like
you are missing out, bigtime!
see there is a reason why that stuff is popular. and by that i mean on the visual side. so instead of flaming , trolling and bashing, try understanding the inner workings of it.
here are some specific examples
realism- it is a wonderfully complex base , reflects one's skill in capturing reality, but in it there are differences between photo referenced, real life work and no reference. ALL HAVE THEIR VALUE AND IMPORTANCE! from photos you can learn alot, gain analytic skills, develop an attention to
so you want to be a professional XDokay, time for another journalso you want to be a professional XD in Personal More Like This
so i keep getting the same questions over and over again. how did i learn to do this.
i was self taught. by this i mean, i took the initiative and seeked out the knowledge, as no one was offering it.
i draw on average 8 to 10 hours a day, every day. by average i mean that some days its 6 and some 12
so... the argument.
i keep hearing this one. well i want to be a professional artist, but life is hard, i need to work, i don't really have the time....
let me put things in perspective here.
i used to work as a night guard on the beach. every single night from 8 pm to s6 am. after that i would go meet up with my dad who gouarded another beach to get a cup of coffee. we had a bite to eat, and then both went to haul and sell fruits and vegetables.
every evening i was drawing. when the sun set i sat under a street lamp and drew through the night.
every night. this was on occasion interrupted by a fight with some exceedingly drunk people who wouldn't

Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.Respect Yourself in Personal More Like This
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier.

Coming OutIt's true, I am Chinese and I was born this way.Coming Out in Personal More Like This
At a young age I began to notice this difference. I was attracted to neither boys nor girls. In middle school, I liked math, and in college, I did my homework all night long.
Being Chinese is not a choice, it is genetic. There are risks to being Chinese because society cannot accept the union between a human and a textbook. I have Chinese friends who didn't need sex because they could foreplay instruments and get screwed by O Chem instead. Now, they don't have a social life and are shunned by others.
But fear not, life will get better. I grew up as a Chinese and I am proud of it (just look at my tumblr user name Maid-en-China ). There is the LGBTC (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Chinese) community to help you be comfortable with your Chinese orientation.
1,338,299,512 people came out as Chinese. You are not alone.
