Issue No. 2|Archives
If the severely acne-scarred face and coarse exterior brought on by his alcoholic and depressed life was the book cover of his being, then Charles was the ultimate book that could not be judged by its cover.
The exquisite collection that was this everyman artist’s art consisted of thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels—mostly all wrenchingly autobiographical, mostly all about moments of epiphany and grace in an otherwise miserable and unhappy existence. The perfect explication of the common man's deepest truth; it's not easy to be here.
Unvarnished and brutal blunt force trauma underlined with hope, beauty, longing, and love.
Therein lies the power of his poet

I am wary of my following message not being received with the full gravity it deserves. It is not my intention to unduly alarm the deviantART community, but... LaurenKitsune is at this time unaccounted for. All attempts on our part to contact her have failed. It is my hope that she has simply taken a much deserved unscheduled pre-Halloween “vacation” and will be back in online communication soon.

Baby news.Im pregnant......pffft HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA no no im not but my mom is and babies now delivery date is now nov 6. Ya i lost my nov 11 idea but im still happy. Im still going to get both ava and this one into history. Now that i wont budge onBaby news. in Personal More Like This
But in a couple weeks, im going to be a big sister to two little beans :') they're going to be my tonto and silver. Yes i made a lone ranger ref right there xD
But im so happy!!
Baby timeI am certainly on baby time now. Actually even more so then when we first brought Ava home. Ye see mom had a C section( is that the right one?) so she can not pick up anything heavier then Gage, she can not even do dishes!!!! So that leaves me to care for the needs of my once baby star sister.Baby time in Personal More Like This
Ava is pretty good around Gage but she still have her moments.
Its interesting, babies, they purely are miracles. Like you see your moms belly growing and BAM!!! A living breathing human being. Its some heavy and magical stuff i tell you.
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.

Bullying + my experiencesHelloBullying + my experiences in Personal More Like This
I wanted to take the time to write about bullying and what I have been through, and also how I dealed with it.
Unfortunately bullying is very common. You are not alone about being bullied. It happens to most of us.
People bully you because of how you look like, or that you have something that they don't have, maybe that you are good at something they're not. It can also be that they are jealous and just want to put you down to feel better about themselves.
I was being bullied around 3rd grade to 5th grade I think. Which was after my best friend switched class. There was this girl who used to call me mean words and also talk behind my back. There was one day when she turned all the girls in my class against me. I think why she was mean to me is that I am very sensitive, if someone call me something I will easily get upset. And I was young back then so I was almost about to cry. Of course I told my parents about it and they just told me to ignore her. I did that and tried not to

Scary Christmas-I mean swedish!Hej 8DScary Christmas-I mean swedish! in Personal More Like This
Let's talk about how we celebrate cristmas over here in the north ^^
Alrighty, so first of all, we do not celebrate Cristmas the 25th of December. No we celebrate the 24th of December. All the nordic countries do that as well. Why? I think it is an old pagan tradition. So what we do is that we wake up on Christmas morning and hopefully there is a little present in our socks. That we hang near our fire place. So we don't get all the presents in the morning A very old and popular tradition is to watch Donald duck and his friends (Kalle Anka och hans vänner) It always air around three o'clock. It is a collection of old Disney shows, such as Ferdinand, Cinderella (when she gets her dress from the mice) and etc. We eat a big dinner that we call Julbord it looks like this.
This is probably te most typical one. We eat potatoes, meatballs, sausages but very small ones and lots of oter stuff!
After the dinner we don't do much, the kids are waiting for the santa to come. And tha
Let's talk about Nordic 5!Hello ^^Let's talk about Nordic 5! in Personal More Like This
Since I live in one of the Nordic countries I thought it would be fun to teach you some fun things of what I know :3
Nordic is a region in Northern Europe, it's called Nordic because of the history we share and also culture, languages etc (Nordic is NOT Northern Europe! It's part of it but More countries in Europe counts as Northern Europe such as Estonia, Germany etc)
Scandinavia- Scandinavia is and forever be Sweden, Norway and Denmark. All those three are kingdoms and not only that. Our languages are so close to each other that we can understand one another with just speak in our own languages. For me, Norwegian and Danish is just like a dialect and when I travel to either Norway or Denmark I don't have to show my passport only my ID to prove that I am swedish. Despite this Finland and Iceland consider themselves as Scandinavian. Iceland has a reason because the people who lives there are scandinavians because they are related to the norwegians. As for Finland

First I want to say thank you very much for the congratulations! It made me very happy :') so I have celebrated my birthday with my family. The only thing that I don't like with birthday is the attention you get, for me I just feel embarrassed and just not worth it. I mean yeah you celebrate the number of how many years you have lived xP same when it comes to attention in others stuff. For example in school or something. Some people just like to stand in the spotlight while us who are shy and just want to be treated like you're air.
And yus I am now 18 years old, and I hate how serious many people celebrate it. Most people sees themselves as adults but I still feel like a teenager. I mean 18 still ends with "teen." I still can't believe it, for me it's feels like I'm 16 or something same with my sister, she is turning 21 this year but she feels like she is 18-19 but I guess over here about turning 18 is that you are allowed to drink alcohol.

Well..Yesterday was not a good day. I wanted to tell you guys some peices of it that I hope you guys will learn from. I won't put in all the details since it is personal.
For a weird reason my sister hanged out with my ex bff. I didn't want to meet her so I stayed at home. I don't want anything to do with her and she is out of my life. But then my sister did something that I will never forgive her for, she brought her here. And I even told her before she left that I didn't want her to come here because I don't want to meet her.
So it was pretty awkward and I was so angry. It was so sad to see how she is today compared to how she used to be. I just sat in my room watching a documentary about North Korea since I think it's pretty interesting. And then my ex friend randomly said "You know Japan is a very weird country" This was about Korea and she randomly talked about Japan? She started to say that she thought it is a scary country because their culture is so different compar

Okay, so my mom surprised me by saying that my Christmas present was getting to see Les Miserables on Broadway. You may or may not know this, but LES MIS IS MY LIFE. Anywhooo, she had to buy the tickets first at this ticket booth, and the line stretched for two blocks. So my mom told me, that while she waits in line, I can go by myself to get some coffee. Me, being the adventurous little dork I am was like, "REALLY?! ALL BY MYSELF, YOU'LL LET ME WANDER AROUND CRAZY TIME SQUARE!?" So she lent me ten dollars and I walked away like a badass to go get some Starbucks that was like five blocks away.
And so I started walking towards the Starbucks, weaving in and out of the traffic of people (there are so many tall people holy shit I was a fucking munchkin) and shoving a few people here and there cause I was kinda grumpy because I didn't have my morning coffee yet. And so, in Time Square, there are literally hundreds of people, dressed in costumes for kids

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

What is a Mention?
A Mention is when a deviant’s username, icon, or artwork is included in a comment or Journal. Mentions create links to the deviants or artwork you include, allowing you to highlight artists and engage deviants with ease.
Links to pages on deviantART can quickly be distinguished by their bold, dark-blue color, while external links are darker and have an arrow indicating you are leaving deviantART.

Did you know ?
Did you know that the Game Development category is for original work only? It's not for fan-art of pre-existing games, nor is it for screenshots of your favourite games that you are playing. The only time there's an exception is if you worked for that game studio on that game and some content in the piece you are posting is partly your work. Partly the reason why Game Development Art got put into a sub category was because many people were miss understanding the purpose of the category entirely thinking it was for Video game artwork o

You, me, and 3D: Getting started
One of the most popular questions asked on 3D pieces is "how did you do this?" the second most common is "how did you start it?" So we'll be looking at an in depth explanation of both of those questions
How do you get started? Well, it's simple just start! Maya, 3DS max come with learning/trial editions as well as the free programs blender, wings 3d, rhino, etc. Just pick it up and give it a try! Google is your friend for this as well, many tutorials on the basics of 3D in any field you're passionate about (modeling, rendering, animating, etc). For animating, there are many fully modeled/rigged free work out there to use to practice your animations with.
There's no "trick" too it, or secret ingredient In order to get used to a program or start a new art form you have to start it. Having all the
GDA PE Week 2013 Day 3So I'm swapping the order of things, today will be intro to some programs for game development. Art features, a bit of Q/A (possibly) and some fun stuff will be tomorrow and friday!GDA PE Week 2013 Day 3 in Deviant Events More Like This
The tools of the trade
Is a massive list, I mean massive. There are so many programs you can use to achieve the art you want for Game Development, it can be overwhelming to narrow it down on some you think you'd be good at using. or excel at learning. Keep one thing in mind when it comes to choosing a program to use: It's just a tool.
Period. The tool doesn't make the artist, it never has. We've seen remarkable work come from the most unlikely places and why should Game Dev. art be any different in that regard?
You'll find people get into battles a lot claiming the tool they use is the best for what they are doing, but that's just it: it is best for them. It may not be what you like, but that doesn't mean you're wrong or you can't achieve similar results. So
GDA PE Week 2013 Day 5Day 5 of 7 woot! Today we feature another artist and their Q/A for the community, along with some different tiers of Game Development!!GDA PE Week 2013 Day 5 in Deviant Events More Like This
What you may not have known about Game Development Art
It not only means video games, but also online games, board games, etc. Games like "dungeons and dragons" unless specific to actual characters you see in the books (those would go under fan-art) would classify as game art if it's your campaign character. Or a board game you are making would also be classified as game development art, or pen and paper, etc. Something I find a lot of members don't realize. What is also neat is that 3D game art can also be your 3D figurines made/used for your board game (as long as it's YOUR copyrighted board game, and not a figurine made for someone else's copyrighted board game unless given 100% permission).
Saturday's article will go more in depth with this but just to give a brief overview

Q and A with :iconpolygoncount:
What is your typical process/layout when creating your 3D work or your game development art work? (ie: your typical day doing this kind of art)
:iconpolygoncount: I usually draw up some sketches from a front and profile view of how I want a model to look (I do this for full models, as well as just faces.
The model may not stay entirely true to the original sketches, but it helps define a character's shape
What are some key factors to creating this art you think beginners or even other artists should remember?

So the 3D category lives under digital art's main category on Deviant Art, but it also lives under Fan-art's main category as well. There are two tiers of 3 Dimensional art (as opposed to 3D Game art which is similar but different restrictions) and better understanding where your work belongs under will help keep your submissions clean and organized
Ultimately the biggest difference between Digital Art - 3D and Fan art - 3D is the differences between those two categories...Digital art is for original copyrighted by you or non copyrighted work, and Fan-art is for work that you designed based off copyright material. Even non copyright material..ie: someone's written up OC and you draw it to belief can also be

Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise
Aonuma Trolling , Ubisoft Lying, Skyrim ComicsAonuma TrollingAonuma Trolling , Ubisoft Lying, Skyrim Comics in Personal More Like This
I should’ve updated my last journal right away when I found out that Aonuma was just trolling with the whole “was that really Link or not?” comment... On one side I’ve been getting inundated with people pointing out how “wrong” I was in the journal (despite the journal clearly coming out BEFORE he clarified his statement), and on the other side maintaining the concept that maybe it wasn’t Link has kept some fans a little TOO hopeful for the idea of a female Link or even that maybe it was him and Zelda’s daughter.
Sorry guys, but that actually WAS Link. I’m pretty disappointed in that, honestly, but I gotta try to be positive and not let this one set back discourage me. On the bright side so many people were “trending” about how much they’d love to see a female Link, that I think Nintendo finally took notice and realized it’s not just a deviant fan fantasy.
A Very Important UpdateI haven't posted here on DA in a while, so this might be new to a lot of you, but if you've been following some of the stuff happening over on tumblr it won't be unexpected. For the past several weeks I've been getting steadily worse both mentally and physically. I've been depressed before, but I've never been as bad as I've been recently. I've lashed out at people, been getting angrier and grumpier, been finding it harder and harder to listen to people giving me positive feedback, and have even started rapidly losing a lot of weight.A Very Important Update in Personal More Like This
My enjoyment for drawing has been dropping, and many of you have probably noticed that I've been taking more and more time off lately. For every few comics I post, I tend to spend another week recuperating. But within the past 2 weeks it's spiked so bad that I seriously have to consider what's more important: my health or drawing.

Ubisoft ApologizesUbisoft ApologizesUbisoft Apologizes in Personal More Like This
Bah, I thought I was done with this... but yet here we go again.
Ubisoft apologized for a lack of diversity in their games. They then vowed to try and diversify for future games. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/135500-Ubisoft-CEO-Says-Company-Will-Work-to-Extend-Diversity
See guys? THIS is when all that “social justice warrioring” bullshit pays off. Yes it’s kinda annoying that everyone was bitching about Ubisoft (myself included) for the past week or so... but guess what? All that bitching actually ACHIEVED something! Companies take their reputations very seriously, and noticing that they were getting a lot of shitty press means they’ll work very hard towards turning that around because no company likes to be known as the worse of anything (with the possible exception of EA).
This is also the sort of thing that I think raising a hissy fit on the internet actually works. A lot of people like to say “let the m
New Mickey Mouse CartoonsHave any of you been watching these? Animator Paul Rudish (famous for Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack) has been hired to do 19 animated shorts featuring Mickey Mouse and company. The cartoons are, naturally, very graphic and reminiscent of the 1930's "rubber limb" style, but with a modern twist. Here's a sample:New Mickey Mouse Cartoons in Personal More Like This
Sorry fans from other countries, but apparently this is only for American viewership Although I am told that if you install something called ProxMate in your browser you can unblock them for your region...
As of this journal there are 4 of the 19 shorts currently available on YouTube under the names New York Weenie, Yodelberg, Croissant de Triomphe, and No Service.
You know Disney, I don't get you sometimes. After gutting the 2-D animation department back in April (laying off 9 long-standing top artists), and after continuously turning down 2-D animated feature after feature... you're still capa

One of the things I hate about the internet is that everything must be quantifiable. Without a proper source, no one will believe you, no matter how reliable your original info was when you received it. It doesn't matter if you heard it from a professor giving a lecture in college, if you read it in a book, read a report by a scientist, or saw a documentary that went into elaborate detail... if there isn't an internet equivalent, then you're seen as a compulsive liar.
Case in point, recently someone mentioned that my sketches look better than my finished artwork and I responded by telling them that there was science that helped back up why that phenomenon exists. But since I couldn't remember the source, I got trolled hardcore for saying that. Today, however, I stumbled upon a close enough equivalence. Here's a quote:
The sketchiness of line art mimics the natural lack of clarity in our peripheral vision. When we look at the real wo

Harley Quinn Contest
In case you haven't heard yet, DC is holding a contest to hire fresh young artists to help work on the new Harley Quinn series. http://www.dccomics.com/node/305151 This is fantastic news for a lot of artists, as "breaking in" to the big comic book companies can be extraordinarily difficult to do and this helps level the playing field. However, the way they've chosen to hold the contest is to have everyone submit 4 illustrations based on 4 separate scripts... all of which depict Harley Quinn as suicidal and trying to kill herself "comically."
Now first off, I get the fact that Harley Quinn is part of the "Suicide Squad," and that these illustrations are likely poking fun at that. However I feel that fact falls on it's face since the term "Suicide Squa

I'll be honest. I wasn't expecting the backlash to be so violent. But I guess I should expect this sort of thing whenever it comes to video games. At any rate, a lot of stuff is being thrown around haphazardly and I wanted to address some of the main complaints/defenses about my criticism of Quiet's design.
"She's got camo skin! She's dressed this way for a reason!"
You know, you can come up with any number of reasons for a character to be scantly clad. But at the end of the day it's still a scantly clad conventionally attractive female character. Not to put to fine a point on it but having Mystique walk around naked because her skin changes color doesn't stop her from being a source of obvious pandering T&A. So I'm sorry, but that whole "you'll be ashamed for slut-shaming her" excuse doesn't hold water with me, especially after Kojima outright said that her design was to sell

Sadly what confuses me are people writing up “Shots Fired!” comments under the artwork. That makes no sense to me. Is it because he draws “sexy” things and people just assume that I’m against “sexy” things cuz I make feminist-slanting comics from time to time? If that’s their beef, then they’re idiots and lack simple comprehension skills necessary to form accurate conclusions based on things I’ve said. Especially since I’ve said that not only do I like sexy artwork and characters, but that I like JJ’s work and have no issues with it what-so-ever. Anyway... ENJOY THE CUTE CARTOON!

LGBT in Kids Cartoons?I had an interesting twitter discussion this morning. Last night I simply asked if there had been any specific character in all of Avatar: The Last Airbender which was anything but heterosexual.

It's a kids show in America. You're not the target audience. Most kids don't give two hoots about that stuff.
I'm opposed to the idea of forcing ideals on children and demanding things change unnecessarily to suit peoples own agendas.
Neither of us, I assume, had cartoons or games with gays as kids. Neither of us are homophobic. So WHY do kids NOW need it?
God damn it, kids don't need to know, or give a shit, about fucking gay rights. Their parents can tell them if they care.
It's a retarded question. It's a god damn kids show.
That raised a lot of questions for me. Such as... why is it wrong to have LGBT representation in a kids cartoon? I’m not

Important Announcement Wall of TextI've given this a lot of thought, and I think this is the right thing to do for myself, the show, and my wallet. Starting with the next episode, the Game Theorists channel (where MatPat, Ronnie, and me are partnered up.) is going to have primary release over my personal youtube channel. Let me explain.Important Announcement Wall of Text in Personal More Like This
We three have always banked off each other in order for all three of us to get more exposure on YouTube. I get 5 times as many views on the Game Theorists channel than my own personal one. But now we are in the process of experimenting with monetization, which means I could finally earn some income from the show, which I desperately need right now. At the moment, I release my episodes on my channel around 24-48 hours before I do on the Game Theorist channel, and this is splitting my views. If monetization on the Game Theorists channel can happen, I can't take views away from a new-found source of income.
I know this may cause a lot of people to want to
