Every day the sea level gets a little higher, and every day we have a little bit less water to drink.
According to the World Wildlife Fund, 2.7 billion people are faced with water scarcities during at least one month of the year.

They look like tiny versions of dinosaur ancestors who have survived into our age, like sharks and crocodiles, but actually they are of a separate evolution and not related. They have scary devil–mask faces, many even sporting horns—but actually, most species are quite human–friendly and can make affectionate pets.
Their endless variations in skin coloring and tattoo–like designs are what draw the artists’ and photographers’ eyes. The chameleons even “change clothes” all day long, wanting to always be wearing the appropriate colors for the “room” they find themselves in.

There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

Above and beyond that, a unique aesthetic beauty unmatched by any other living creature in creation. There is the reality of the horse and there is the idea of the horse. Combined in a single construct, a special art has existed to celebrate the horse since the first human artists used the stone walls of their cave dwellings as the first canvases. Watching Werner Herzog’s 2010 documentary on the Chauvet Caves in southern France, Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010), gives one a sense of the powerful bond of human and horse, of the capture of early humanit

Yes, comments are disabled on her YouTube video. But honestly, why does everyone see this as a "problem?" I know it's common wisdom to assume that if you hide comments you're "scared" of receiving criticism or some other bullshit, but think beyond that please.
1) Comments enabled would just allow hate speech and actual sexism to persist because the internet has already determined that everyone hates Anita. No matter how thoughtful or constructive your criticisms might be, YouTube's 500 character limit isn't the best place to give it, plus it would be drowned out by the trolls and haters spewing negativity.
2) Her videos are also meant more as a teaching tool, not a vlog series, and as such are potentially going to be used in classrooms. Probably a good idea to keep nasty comments of homophobia, racism, sexism, etc off of the main source of the video. I think that's backed up beautifully by having her tell parents to preview the

I’m uncertain because while I liked a lot of the film, this version deviates heavily from the book, even moreso than the first movie did. About halfway through the film there’s a sudden plot development that changes EVERYTHING, and other sequences are elaborated into wild action farce that goes against the mood of the book.
The main digressions are 1) One of the dwarves strikes up a romance with one of the woodland elves while in captivity, 2) Orcs attack the elven city while the Dwarves are trying to escape in barrels, 3) the entire party of dwarves and bilbo get split into two groups: one which stays in Lake Town, and the other which contin

While I like the more manga consistent character designs and animation... I just can’t help but fall back on the 90’s cartoon. It’s not just nostalgia talking either. The 90’s cartoon had much more personality and energy and conveyed emotions far better than the remake so far. Something tells me it’s gone take a whole ‘nother reboot before that mix of the old and the new finally gel into something truely awesome... kinda like the new Nickelodeon TMNT cartoon.
Don’t get me wrong, both the 90’s cartoon and the new version have its merits and you’re entirely free to enjoy whichever you like. Personally I just like the simpler more expressive designs of the 90’s, that’s all.

Real Scientific Danger of My Artistic InfluenceOne of the many complaints lobbed at me is that I have enormous influence on a younger generation and therefor it is incumbent upon me to shape up and fly right so these young tikes get the best artistic advice possible. IE: People worried that my “bad art and methods” are corrupting the next generation of artists and therefor I should stop making art altogether to prevent this.Real Scientific Danger of My Artistic Influence in Personal More Like This
Setting aside the ignorant and harmful messages that this sends to young artists (such as the ignorant concept that all young artists only ever follow ONE artistic influence their entire life and aren’t influenced by ALL the art around them at all times), I decided to see how much credibility this “fear” actually had... using MATH.
So I have about 57,790 watchers on DA. I’m not counting other sites like Facebook or my website because there’s obviously some overlap, and some of the people who hate me will fill in that gap. So roughly 57,790 people on the planet watch me.

I’d like to try and reassure some of you that it’s not as bad as it might sound, and here’s why (please keep in mind this is from an American perspective).

So they’ve retaliated with a “take down tumblr” campaign. Please bear in mind that there is no real evidence to support this and it might all just be 4chan stirring up shit themselves for the lulz.
4chan users created multiple accounts and then proceeded to spam the popular tumblr tags with excessive amounts of gore, porn, child pornography, and have been taking “selfie” images of underage tumblr users and photoshop them into porn. They've also

As an artist our aim is to create.
Our goal is to envision and then usually visually invent things from our own mind's eye and as such we often overlook the fact that not every mind thinks the same as our own.
Everyone has their own unique imagination with is fabricated and cultivated by our own live's unique experiences, events, and past. Now, while those things may be similar in nature at their core, no one event is the same for every person.
As such we have to realize that despite how much we want to, we cannot ever please everyone's tastes with our work.

I will set up some ideas later on if people are intrested in this. And ofcourse Iwould have to see a picture of the one I am getting before I accept the trade, best held so I can see size.
let me know if this is something that you would be intrested in doing!

ICON CONTEST EDITEdit: Have some more points now to give away, and seeing so many entries, im adding two new cathegories you can win in.ICON CONTEST EDIT in Personal More Like This
8D I love icons, I love them so much *squirlms* So why not do a icon contest for them icon/pixel artists out there!
No bases allowed sorry. It has to be entierly your work.
Crisp pixel lines have a higher chance of winning.
You can do with or without background, that is up to you.
Choose one of my animal characters for the contest http://griffsnuff.deviantart.com/gallery/24055808
(snuffen and jonston has their own folders)
You can enter as many times as you want.
I will judge four diffrent parts, animated and non animated, Headshots and group icons. ( All these still needs to be 50x50, so if you are doing a group icon, all characters needs to be inside that spot, or it will count as seperate icons.

The BoulderOpalGriffsnuff rolls down the town road after finishing work. She passes a jewelry store with gold and diamonds, dramatically stops and stares into the store window with huge eyes.The stare intensifies and she quickly walks back and into the building holding the store, walks right up to the nice ladies and asks to see the pretty opal in the window. The lady looks confused and griffsnuff smiles widly, the opalized rock she says!The BoulderOpal in Personal More Like This
Lady goes, grabs it, griffsnuff asks for price, woman says it costs $600, griffsnuff accepts without hesitation and happily walks out and home like a little kid in a candystore.
STORY OF MY DAY. I just bought a $600 boulder opal from one of our most expensive jewelry stores xD I COULDNT LEAVE IT, I have wanted one forever, but this one just spoke to me on a different level of awesome. I dont even mind that its not completely opalized it just looks damn badass and its the size of my palm!

long text is long
I am not here on deviantART for anyone, I do not draw to please anyone, nor am I here to be used as a feature machine
This rant obviously does not include trades, gifts or commissions xD
The biggest thing that irks me is that people think, just because a lot of people have decided to follow me, I somehow have a obligation to use that to "help" other artists with amazing art get recognized. This is bullshit. Its not my or anyone elses responsibility to make anyone get attention.
IF someone really wants attention, I think its fair that they work for it instead of sitting on their l azy ass waiting for others to do it for them. Remembering back to my own first months here on dA it took me atleast 4 years of being very active. I MEAN uploading stuff almost everyday/commenting back to people, drawing trades and gifts.

Yet Gage is moms last baby. She got her tubes tied because she is apparently "far past the age of child birth!" or in her words "im to old". Like even i must admit, mom was pushing the line dramatically! Shes either 41 or 42 and she now has 3 kids, the last two are under the age of two.
Ye know i hate people. Especially those who use child birth as empty hollow words in an attempt to strengthen a relationship. Like seriously.

First of all I want to give you guys an update of what is going on with fanfics. I am very happy that you like my latest Hetaliaxreader series so far Because of how popular it seems to be, I will try to make as many parts as I can. So each part might be a little short so it will make it easier for me to do more parts. Before I write the next part I need to to a little request that I got a few weeks ago. It is a Pirate!Spainxreader oneshot, since it is pirate theme which is my favourite I want to wait until I have the right motivation to start. I'll see if I can finnish it until next week at leats.

Skäms att jag skrattade som jag gjorde, efter att ha läst andras kommentarer om vad de tyckte på melodifestivalens Facebook sida fick jag en tankeställare. Att använda Sveriges största underhållnings program till att göra narr av ett land måste vara det löjligaste ever! Visst jag vet att det är typiskt oss att skämta om oss och andra länder men det här var för mycket. Visst man kunde säga ett skämt om danskar en gång men inte att göra narr av vinnarlåten och också om de som jobbar med esc just nu. Och det där med att elda upp flöjtar?? Nej fy skäms Svt! >: (

Melodifestivalen which is Sweden's national selection for Eurovision song contest will start this saturday! I can't wait! It is a very famous Tv show where singers compete in I think 4 semi finals. 2 artist with most votes will be sent to the final and 2 other songs will be sent to the second chance which is before the final. That is the last chance for us to vote which 2 songs we want to send to the final ^^ I really like the concept where SVT let us pick the songs compare to most countries where their broadcasts just pick a random song xP The thing that I find adorable is that not only swedes watch this x3 people from most of all Europe watch and follow it too.
One singer that I and most of us are is Helena Paparizou She has competed in Eurovision two times representing Greece in 2001 and 2005 where she won with her awesome song "Number one" And now she will fight to represent Sweden She is actually half swedish ^^

*.*I have to tell you all about an anime that I found yesterday!! 8D*.* in Personal More Like This
The anime is called Uta no prince sama. It is about a girl called Nanami who attends to an academy where she one day want to become a composer. She meets 6 guys who have a dream to be Idols and they all falls in love with her (why does this reminds me of Hetaliaxreader fan fics? xD).
But on her first day the teacher announce that they are not allowed to date or anything like that. I think this has something to do with how Japan is irl. I've heard that celebrities are not allowed to be in a relationship.
Anyway I watched half of the first season the whole night x'D the series is hilarious and all the charatres are so cute and the music is really good! Especially the opening theme for season 1. I've finished season 2 today and I hope there will be a third one ^^

The changing of the year to 2014 drew my attention to the fact that its been TEN YEARS (!!!!) since I joined DA... and when i first joined I posted some artwork that was already over a year old in some instances (so pieces from 2001!). I had a lot of fun going through and looking at my old stuff yesterday - and I even updated some old pieces with new descriptions. I sorted them into a folder in my gallery called OLD OLD OLD. Im mentioning this for two reasons.
1) Im going to delete all that old stuff in a week or two - so if you like any of it, download it, because you wont be able to find it here any longer!
2) before I do so, I wanted to give some followers a final chance to see it, because I see some developing artists leave comments on my stuff along the lines of "I wish I could draw like that." Well, good news, you totally and completely can. If you look at my OLD folder - you can see where Ive been, and make some comparisons to recent things. There isnt an ENORMOUS change,

Im back from Anthrocon - working on comic pages again. I drove into Pittsburg Friday evening, then woke up saturday morning pretty sick and stayed in bed all day, missing the main day of the con. Then I had to drive home midday on Sunday. As a result I really didnt get to see many people, and only handed out a few bookmarks ( these - http://kayfedewa.deviantart.com/art/BBA-Bookmark-465353845 )
A few people have expressed interest in obtaining one of these even though they couldn't go to AC, so I figured It should be pretty cheap for me to mail the rest of them out to folks.

BBA Reboot Comic Release UpdateJust thought I'd post a few notes about what's going on with the BBA Reboot Comic.BBA Reboot Comic Release Update in Personal More Like This
In case anyone is still unaware at this point, it's being entirely rewritten. This means new plot, new characters. Some old characters. Some design changes. Some name changes.
We have a short, fun little "preview" scene of 8 pages that I'd like to release first - as a "demo" of sorts. We made it because I wanted to test out the new format and process (im using some new tools now). This scene isn't the beginning of the story - but a sort of "standalone" mini comic written for the express purpose of being something we could use for testing our new ideas and techniques, and then release if we liked the results.
Our intention with posting the preview scene is to give you an idea of what our new work will look and feel like. And really, we spent so much time on it, I feel like it would be a shame if no one got to see it!

New BBA Roleplay Forum Opens TodayHey everyone. I apologize for being scant. Been working hard though!New BBA Roleplay Forum Opens Today in Personal More Like This
I'm pleased to announce that the companion forum for the BBA reboot has been opened today.
It features a number of new characters from the comic that will be available for roleplay. New characters will be added to the roleplay roster as they appear, as will new roleplaying areas.
For those who aren't necessarily into RP, we have built spaces for commissioning art and adopting/trading characters and designs.
New page releases will begin soon but I wanted to give people a chance to explore the new forum and get settled in. If youre interested, please stop by and check it out. I hope you'll like what you see - the staff and I have put a lot of work into it.
See you there!
A New Chapter ( or an old one? )Hi guys,A New Chapter ( or an old one? ) in Personal More Like This
So, Friday i left my job that ive been at for the past 5 years. It was a very very difficult decision. It felt like when you break up with someone who is actually really nice and a good person, and you've been with a long time, and they still like you a lot, but you cant really imagine yourself spending your entire life with them, because there's other things you want to try in life. But the parting is still difficult, and sad. So, i'm a little down about it all (in fact maybe my metaphor is flawed because ive cried more than over any breakup!)
But the reason I'm posting about it here is because, well, what I'll be doing with my time now is working on the new comic. Even when I was making sure to schedule time to work on the concepts and writing, it only ever amounted to a few hours a night, and that was after 8.5 hours of pretty creatively intense work on something else, so by the time I was working on my own stuff, I was already pretty drained.
In short youll

Deviantart Points and Contest PonderingSo, it's been along time since I paid any attention to DA's features.Deviantart Points and Contest Pondering in Personal More Like This
I have discovered there is a new thing called DA Points.
I also noticed that for my birthday, people have transferred me points. There isnt an option to reply in the points log to the message, but I want to say THANK YOU if you gave me any points. Too kind, too kind!
I think id like to do a DA contest and give points to a winner. I have seen a few other people do them.
Do you think I should do one, and if so what should it be about? What is an average amount of points that people give to winners?
Old deviations stored and UpdatesAlrighty, some of you informed me about the "storage" option, so I put my old stuff in storage rather than outright deleting it. thanks for the suggestion.Old deviations stored and Updates in Personal More Like This
You know, it's nice to be back in touch with a lot of my old DA friends and acquaintances. I love seeing the new directions and evolutions of everyone's work over the years. It's so impressive and inspiring.
I'll say that it can be pretty lonely out there in the world in some ways. Knowing there is a community where you fit in with like-minded folk is pretty special.
Im pretty sick, so I didnt upload last week -but I should have some more concepts to upload tonight. Thanks for reading!
BBA Preview Pages ReleaseHeya!BBA Preview Pages Release in Personal More Like This
First off I want to thank everyone profusely for posting so many supportive words regarding Anya. I fell off the horse and didn't work for a few weeks there, but I'm doing a lot better and to be honest it's due in large part to the outpouring of kindness you gave me during that time. I miss her every day.
So, what I want to talk about now is that I put up page 1 (also a title page) of the BBA preview scene!
We will be posting pages every other monday.
:iconfablepaint: and I opened a Patreon page if anyone would like to support the comic work http://www.patreon.com/blackbloodalliance
Once the preview scene is finished you might notice some downtime as we may take a few weeks to build up a buffer of pages for the main story arc. I got a little behind my desired schedule after Anya but I am still are shooting for early 2015 to post the beginning of the story. January would be ideal, but I dont want to promise until i can be absolutely sure it's doable. Im not 100% full time on
