Apparel Collection: Movie TimeTo wear this shirt is to cast yourself as the main character in the film of your life, with the dynamic and brightly colored images that make our days as beautifully composed as any award-winning movie. Art is a projection of your creative vision, so project it proudly!
Art exists across many media, from the very static to the super dynamic. Moving-picture media is a great subject matter, and it is the inspiration for this graphic illustration.
This design began on tracing paper with a sharpie marker as fast and furious lines over a pencil drawing. Knowing that this would be a shirt graphic and wanting to mix up the styles on the collection, I was happy with the drawing but wanted to move a different direction. In searching through images of movie-making and projecting systems, old-school projector technology caught my eye as a relic of times past. It’s all about following the inspiration, and the imagery of this machine that existed as a building block for the film technology we

The Screenshot This Meme.The Truth Behind The Infinity MemeMore Like This
Before i start the tall-tale of the screenshot meme, i'd like to thank
ReaveT93 and Mochine-Nyan for getting me interested at 8:30 at night to do this search. and for the links you guys got, you went really far!
Now to get down to business. with the links provided from the two above, i just started pushing the images that where similar, but then i hit the first dead-end.
At this point, no one is drawing on the meme, it's just a screen shot, which i found strange, since i thought it was a drawing meme.
So, to get over the road block of deactivation, i read the user name of the person before the one that deactivated and searched the name in DA.
I did this several times until two people deactivated and i couldn't make out the words of the the last last person who did it.
In situations like this, Google is your best friend~
I started to Google the usernames and, walla! Most of their images are there, and i could make out more names.
Then i got t
SPIKE stickers?I've actually had this idea for a while, but never thought seriously about actually doing something with that idea..More Like This
I was thinking... Would anyone be interested in buying stickers of my characters?
4 or 5 inch tall stickers of each character, probably even with three or more versions of some of the characters (like kid Sam, young teen Sam, older teen Sam). The characters would be drawn in a chibi-like style.. not like the ones I previously drew that had really creepy, hollow eyes... But more like the Cain paperchild I made, or the Spike paperchild with the christmas hat.
Hang on, I'll find them...
This type of chibi-style and with white edges around them (because personally I think the white edge would make it look pretty neat). Perhaps a wider edge though, but something like this.
The stickers would be of high quality. I've already found a company that prints stickers in any size and shape, in high

Poll Ongoing!More Like This
For those have have just stumbled upon my sculpts, I have this weekly thing called the Musebox where I feature some of the best dragon/fantasy works that I find here on dA.
To add a little fun, I often decide to set up themes for the features; for example, we had a Young Dragons theme for Musebox 0002 and Game of Thrones for Musebox 0003.
To get some help with themes, I often make polls too.
Lately, there have been very interesting suggestions and how I'd like to get to them as soon as possible. Which is why I figured that the theme that wins this week's poll will be the theme for next week's Musebox; those that fall behind will done for the the weeks that follow.
Do you like seeing collections of dragons or fantasy art in general?

Holiday Card Project 2013More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
An apology for my behavoir.I am sorry for my attitude... Towards everybody on here. I have been rude and harsh, and I was out of control. You can make the movie how ever you wish it to be. It's a fan made film, right?.. Anyways, I am once again sorry. Hey, think of this: The movie is never the same thing as the book? Being in your own things guys, cause now that I am realizing, there is too much fighting in this, it's in every single part of the script. After watching TEN, it made more sense, and was not as repetitive as its first game, ANB. Hey, you guys can change things completely, like make him stay in the swamp longer, add in some characters as he is chasing Sparx around, y-know? Show what he looked like as a baby when he arrived at the swamp. Or with the Atlawa, show some other characters in there to, or give apes their own things, the Manweersmalls, the Gouls, anything! Make it more alive, than a game, if you get what I mean.More Like This

Carciphona volume 1 sold out not long ago, and I’ve finally restocked those this week!Shipping prices lowered as promised in the past month!
I’ve been working on figuring out a new shipping company last month, and I am ready (I think LOL MAYBE) to switch over! Shipping has always been the bane of my shop because I’m in Canada. I’ve got tons of questions about it in the past year that range from confused to outraged. But it’s in my best interest to find ways to lower shipping prices, because while some people are in such disbelief that Canadian shipping can be that bad (it can) might even think that I bloat shipping prices to make more money, high shipping costs actually makes me lose business because SURPRISE, no one wants to buy overpriced things.
The new company ships through USPS which means I can lower shipping prices to USA by as much as 70%

If you missed the previous ones, the idea here is that I'm selling original physical copies of some of the pencil sketches I did earlier this year. This time it's a sexy catgirl in bed. See below for details on the item, links to samples, and instructions on how to bid! This auction is open for roughly 6 days, ending on 25th.More Like This
BONUS FOR PARTICIPATING:
Everyone who bids on a sketch auction during December will participate in a raffle I'll hold at the end of the year. The randomly-drawn winner of the raffle will receive at least two items, which can be either original sketches/doodles or leftover prints (probably one of each!). Your bid doesn't need to win an auction in order to participate in the raffle! Bidding in each auction earns you an additional raffle ticket (but only one per auction item!). So go ahead, up that bid. Even if you don't win the auction, you might win the raffle.

For how much? I dunno! You tell me! So, let's try an auction! I'll start off with the older ones and if this goes well, then I'll move on to the newer ones!

Deviantart seems kinda dead, or like it's dying or something. Or is that just for me ( and the people I've spoken to?). Honestly, I think a lot of the changes they made are responsible.

Murder at the Castle! Let the investigation begin!Last night, Cinderella was to host the greatest ball in all the land in honour of her Husband, Prince Charming. It had been months of hard work; every servant and helper furiously putting together the finest of touches to ensure everything was perfect. Invitations had been sent out to exclusive friends and acquaintances alike, reaching the farthest parts of fairyland. It was to be the event of the century.More Like This
There was no denying, Cinderella had become highly stressed of late. Organising such a fabulous ball had taken its toll, especially when perfection was her objective. Her inner control freak had taken over and she no longer cared who she upset or angered as long as the ball was exact. Friends were no longer happy with her, she wouldn't keep promises- let alone attend unnecessary events such as Alice's weekly tea party. In fact, even her own husband, who all this was for, had not been in her mind.
The Ball was lavish; champagne fountains, golden swans, shimmery streamers, a stylish d&

What is a forest?
In the simplest terms, forests are areas of land covered with trees and undergrowth. However, while it is true that forest landscapes are dominated by trees, in reality these ecosystems are far more complex than they may first appear, supporting a whole host of different species and playing an important part in human livelihoods.

Womens Rights againHonestly Tired of itMore Like This
I’m honestly sick and tired of making comics or journals or whatever about women’s rights. But it seems like every week there’s a new story about how some asshole guy makes some sort or sexist remark, or how women are being excluded from some place, or killed in others... I’m so sick and tired of it all. I wish I didn’t have to talk about it all the time because I think “women’s rights” are really just part of having “common sense,” but apparently the rest of geek/gaming culture doesn’t think that way.
I was going to make a couple of comics for SYAC elaborating on these recent issues, but I just don’t feel like it anymore. I don’t want SYAC to become a preach-wagon for Women’s Right’s issues more than they already have. So instead I’m bringing you the rundown in this journal instead of making more comics about them.

Today I read a bit (or more) into the comments some people left at a poll :icondamaimikaz: did (go there and read if you're curious). It left me baffled and angry because so many people are frankly UNDERselling themselves and their art.
One girl wrote me a while ago and ask for my opinion on her prices- privately because most people seem to suck at giving a critical opinion or give a decent mental clout... or two. Whatever helps. I still hope she got rid of the annoying customer who sounded like one from hell. Where he hopefully trolled back into.
Here's my two cents regarding the topic and please read carefully and make up your mind if you fall into the "sell cheap" category.
First of all I could ignore what price you sell your art for because it's YOUR art. Because like in real jobs everybody's responsible for his/her money and you have to negotiate your terms and the money yourself. Nobody will hold your hand

Fire Emblem If: Avatar Confirmed! +SMTxFE [EDITED]For those of you where it is still April first, this is not an April Fool's Day joke!More Like This
Fire Emblem If, or simply Fire Emblem 14 or just the new 3DS FE that doesn't have an English name yet, was featured in today's Nintendo Direct and the Avatar has been confirmed to be making a new appearance. The player's character will be the main lord of the game, apparently will have to choose between two kingdoms: a peace-loving nation of Hoshido where he/she was born of royal blood or a glory-seeking nation of Nohr where he/she was raised by the royal family. Choosing the path of the first nation will be more akin to the usual Fire Emblem game while the latter will be more challenging and offer slightly different gameplay, from what I understand.
You can find the trailer here.
Also, for those of you who still remember the teaser from two years ago, they FINALLY showed us a taste of Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. And honestly I don't know much about SMT
The Horror StoryMy horror should turn to grit that chokes the rusting cogs of passing breaths.More Like This
It should sneak into crevice and corner until each pirouette of a clock hand crunches
a desperate death rattle into the mid-December hysteria. It should.
I want my terror to ooze into the machinery of existence and permeate the iron.
I want it to coat, and coax wheels off their axels as my mind spins out of control.
The whole world should grind it's internal organs like black pepper. To a halt.
The stars should feel the chill of my desperation and slide sluggishly down the sides of the sky
dripping burning nitrous into our eyes that in turn melt out of their sockets.
I want every subatomic particle of life itself to suddenly stop, mid sentence.
This is the way the world should fall apart.
This is the way the world ends. This is the way the world ends.
Not with a bang but with a resolutely maternal voice, strong as gravity, growling "Cancer."
I want the world so still that I will see the traces of the dead le

How cool is that? Just
Think about it. Stardust.
Your body is a universe
With your heart as its sun,
And it has been pumping
To keep you alive
Since you begun –
A whole sun
Wants you here.
Your lungs are two galaxies;
Each an inhaling and exhaling
And they work their hardest
To keep you okay –
Two entire galaxies
Want you to stay.
Your blood cells are meteors,
Going as fast they can
To keep you safe and sound –
Millions of magnificent meteors
Want you around.
Our souls are night skies
And our flaws
Are constellations that
Make us who we are –
Making us each as unique
As each and every star.
Please, don’t become a supernova tonight.

with cruel honesty
of their light
of how they hang
so far away,

Oh, how the stars hate me

carrying with them
wishes I'll never see.
how the horrors of your light
blind me when I look to you
for something each night.
But with the coming of each day
I always forget

I'm forced to regret

Oh, how the stars hate me

You smiled to yourself as you hid, looking out into the clearing. Your plan was perfect; but you just had to wait. You shifted your weight by leaning on your other leg. You didn’t want a “dead” leg to spoil the surprise.
“Aha…” you thought gleefully as you saw a familiar figure step out into the clearing. He walked out and looked around, clearly confused.
“That’s strange… I thought she said at this time…” you could hear him mutter to himself.
You had to try really hard as to not laugh out loud. Chrom… was so gullible! You hoped he wouldn’t look up… because there was a big bucket of water that you had sitting in the tree branches. If he walked…let’s see… two steps more forward… then he’d be in the perfect position… you took out your dagger so you could cut the rope attached to it…
“Whatcha doing?” you jumped and yelled out loud when you hear

“I don’t want angry IM’s from that orange haired captain of yours again,” you warn.
“So you let Mikoshiba IM you, but you won’t let your own boyfriend send you messages during the day?” he grunts, shifting around a little on his stomach.
“I wouldn’t say I ‘let’ him do anything. He kind of made it happen himself. Have you ever tried to stop that guy doing anything?”
“Yeah, and he’s still dating Kou, so I suppose you’re forgiven.”
“Why thank you, your highness,” you drawl sarcastically, eyes rolling playfully.

Makoto winced at the pain as he pushed himself up from the floor. He could almost see the embarrassment oozing out of him. What kind of idiot trips over nothing and lands face-first on the floor?
He looked up midway to find his kouhai staring down at him with pure concern. Makoto desperately tried to hold in the blush of embarrassment that was trying to make it's way onto his face.
"I-I'm fine!" The male quickly stood up, laughing nervously afterwards.
"Are you sure?" She cocked her head to the side.
Oh, how adorable she looked in his eyes. Makoto swallowed that thought down his throat before he could say it aloud. He nodded with a smile.
"Thanks for the concern, [Name]-chan."
This time it was her turn to blush. [Name]'s gaze went down to her feet, fingers fiddling with each other as she tried to remain calm.
"N-No problem, senpai…" She muttered shyly.

It was a nice afternoon. You were driving home from work, and there were virtually no cars around. You figured, Hey, I can probably drive a bit quicker. That way I can get home and cook myself some extra good food. This is where your mistakes began.
You sped up.
You sped up some more.
You sped up even more.
And sirens were heard. Sirens for you.
“Damn,” you uttered, as you pulled over.
You heard a knock on the window, so you rolled them down. You saw the cop hat, and sighed, but then—under than cop hat, was a pretty sexy face. You blushed.
“Excuse me, miss, are you aware that you were speeding almost 10—” he stopped when he saw you. God, she’s hot, he thought.
“Sorry, officer! I was j-just trying to get home as soon as possible.” You squeezed your chest together with your arms (this sounds weird but y’all know what I mean), attempting to seduce the maroon-haired man.
He turned red. “Look, you were speedin
