About Artists on Writers
Writers will always find inspiration in the visions of artists, always feeling compelled to tell the stories behind the moments captured in artists’ unforgettable images,
Artists will always find inspiration in the words of writers, always feeling compelled to lend visual reality and habitat to the characters described in the scribe’s haunting words.
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, mos
Odyssey Update 1This first weekend of reading and re-reading Odyssey selections was just as intensely rewarding as last year. I am incredibly grateful to once again be able to share this process with all of you. Having Clive Barker on board for Odyssey II is truly an enlightening and educative experience. There is nothing more thrilling than reading through each of the entries and then re-reading the chapters that truly resonate and carry with them immense writing skill. This story could have gone in so many worthy directions and genres, and there was no end to the creativity and storytelling skill on so many of the submissions.Odyssey Update 1 in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
The people in my life were adequately warned, but there were still those that questioned my sanity and work methods as I stayed up for the duration of the weekend meticulously poring over eachof the entries... then starting over and reading them again.

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.
Before going dark, LaurenKitsune was good enough to write and transmit a report on the Slender Man phenomenon sweeping the Internet. That report is published here fo

Days of Doodles
Mindful Meditation of Daily Drawing
Foreword by techgnotic
Gabriel Picolo is a graphic design student in Brazil who has provided at least two people—me and himself—a most compelling reason for getting out of bed every morning in 2014. He calls it the 365 Days of Doodles Project, for which he creates, each day, one of his wildly imaginative pencil sketch and ink drawings (quite a bit more elevated than a “doodle”—more like a free-flowing meditation).

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

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

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. I will never do it though. s

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. And tomorrow my winter holiday will start which means no school work until 7th of January :'D (whoop!)

MemoriesI've been in China for almost a week now, and all the memories I have of this place is flooding back. Unfortunately, many of those memories are quite negative.

It's not a secret and I'm in a weird mood right now so I'll retell the story.Memories in Personal More Like This
I last visited China almost five years ago. I was unfortunate enough to be stranded at the LAX airport for two days. During that time, I met another girl my age who was also returning to China to visit family. We talked for a long time and I found out her parents are also divorced like mine. She told me how her stepmom would regularly burn her with cigarette buds. I was horrified but I felt lucky that my stepmom is kind to me. I told her I was lucky to have a nice stepmom. I had never been so wrong.
When I first arrived, my stepmom greeted me kindly, and we talked, joked, and hung out like a regular family would. But her mask was quickly cracking a

I can honestly say that I grew up with this community and everyone here has taught me so much, and not just about art, but also on how to be a person. When I first got this account at the age of 12, I could have never imagined how much it has shaped my life and career. It sounds cliche but I probably wouldn't have became an artist if it hadn't been for everyone here on deviantART. Through all of the ups and downs in life, the community has always been the support and inspiration that kept me going.
I hope to give back as much as everyone has given me. I will continue to create more comics, tutorials and art in the future. I will never stop, and I have you all to thank for that.
So truly, thank you!

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

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

Get to know your game development groups
Yup, there are groups that help support game development. One of the very first groups for this was :icongame-art: . It specifically ties into the game development art category because it was founded around the same time it's founder became a CV themselves. A lot of the rules for the group are the same rules for the category on Deviant Art itself. The group's former founder, :iconpyritie: works for a game company as a programmer and was at one point a CV for the category. The current founder, :icondkdevil: , is also a game developer working alongside a programmer to make a game called Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme which you can read more about here -> http://www.indiedb.com/games/gender-bender-dna-twister-extreme
The group features galleries that our broken down similar to how we have the category setup.

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!

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

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.

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!

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).

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

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:

Nerdcrafteria is one of the most awesome Minecraft servers I have ever participated in. The server is broken up into several different worlds. The Main World, The Nether, Minington, and Gladitorial. All of the worlds have borders around them preventing players from roaming too far and making the strain on the server too much to handle, but all of the worlds are also massive enough that you likely won't notice.
The Various Worlds
The main world is where towns and cities exist. You cannot break blocks here except on town plots that you purchase with the server's equivalent to money = Llamas. This helps prevent griefers from destroying all your hard work and gives you a place to call home. If you don't have enough

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
