Cyanide and Happiness ShowOur animated show has been waiting to be made a long time. After the 3 year bout with television networks, we've chosen to make content straight to you, the attractive viewer (that's you) (unless you're not reading this)http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/explosm/the-cyanide-and-happiness-showThis is a big god damn deal to us, and I hope you guys want to see the final product as badly as we want to make it. Seriously, we have years of animation we've been wanting to throw out for you to ocularly digest, and we would rather give straight to your face instead of going through TV where it will get COVERED in preservatives and insecticides.My analogy has wandered from me, but please check out our kickstarter and what could potentially be the best thing ever to happen to mankind. Potentially.
How to make a boring character?To go straight to the point and answer that question: don't say a word about his/her/its/insertyourpronounhere personality.Ya know, ten years ago I couldn't even imagine how much characters people can create. I talk about single persons' creations. dA is full of them. Of course, I am more focused to non-human characters (because creatures are creatures, dammit, if I want a good human character, I go out and ask things from any living person). The thing with everybody/one/thing is, though, that if you leave personality out, you have an empty shell. No matter how pretty it is, then it's just a pretty creature without a character.I have noticed a lot of the previously said issue during the years. Especially lately I've become more interested about single persons' headworlds. It is somehow fascinating to take visit to somebody's head - and how else to do that except reading about their characters. If there's a good description (and good doesn't need to be long - it can be, but quality ov
Win a HP Tablet! -RESULTS-The Journal we have all been waiting for! Thank you everyone for the patience you've shown me this last week after the deadline. This was such a hard decision for me to figure out! Everyone did such an amazing job, I had alot of trouble deciding who to pick. I called friends and family over to my house for help, and with the help of the amazing fencergirl00 we have a top 3 finally!BUT FIRST! I just wanted to put in some love to everyone:ENTRIES: Bliood-Kira , TalanxShien:I love how this piece can tell a story with no words included. The Demon Talan Vs the beautiful angel fighting in the open fields of twilight. It looks like a lot of thought went into this piece, from the dark to light gradient, to the type of houses in the background. An epic battle I would love to see how it played out.
Literature Preview Images - What Can I Use?Hello, everyone!Using a preview image for literature is something that can be a good creative addition to your piece.However, there are some rules that go along with it.:faq63:What sort of things can I use for Preview images?Preview images which were created using your own resources and your own efforts are most appropriate for use; you should not simply 'take' images which belong to other creative people without first getting their permission. Otherwise all preview images must abide by the deviantART terms of service as well as all other relevant policies.Simply saving a random picture you found online without obtaining the artist or photographer's exact permission is against the rules of dA. More so than that, it is also unfair to the person who originally created the piece. Simply saying "I got this image from here" and providing a link.If you didn't ask the person and they did not say yes, then please do not use the image. This could can put deviants in trouble as wel

Getting Back to InspirationOvercoming that mental block or that lack of inspiration can be extremely hard! I would like this to be the beginning of something to help all types of artists and hobbyists to overcome that barrier and continue to do what it is that calls you.Your art work is a form of self-expression. Every piece that you create is unique to you, I ask that you appreciate even what you think may be the worst piece ever as that (a unique piece of you).1.) As a rule of thumb—never throw out anything that you create, no matter how bad you think it is. In some way, you have learned from it, you can look back at it later and it may serve as inspiration to recreate it with all that you have recently learned and it may be your next masterpiece. In the very least, you may look at it later on and that piece that you created and thought was so horrible will show you just how far you have really come.2. ) Keep a folder on your computer of work that has always served to inspire you. If this work has
Contest Journal (Apology and more prizes!)EDIT: So, one of my DA friends brought it to my attention that I was being sort of irrational yesterday The deadline will still be August 15th but it will not be cancelled. I now have four entries. I mean, I truly need a couple more but I have enough so that I can't cancel it. Thank you to everyone who has entered and even said they would enter XD I'm rather excited to see what you will all come up with.Also, this friend brought to my attention that the prizes weren't really sufficient. Well, they're been updated once more. I think everyone will be very pleased ;DRules:-No Tracing-No Bases (preferably. While this contest is mainly for a design, I haven't been a huge supporter of bases lately.)-When you finish your entry, note it to me :3Alright, the concept is very simple. There are four seasons, right? Spring, Winter, Summer, and Fall. I want all of you to design an outfit using the concept of one of the four seasons.Example: Florence has picked the season, Summer. Florence
hidden by commenter BS!Noreally I don't like to be very open or opinionated when it comes to issues with DA. But I have just taken notice to something that seriously should not even be an issue! Apparently now other people can edit and hide their own comments they make on YOUR page. So let's say your trying to report someone for harassment, they can basically hide their comments to you and there is no evidence to prove they were harassing you. So therefore they can keep doing it over and over but because they can hide their own comments on your page now they can't get introuble! How messed up is that ! That is basically giving people the "OK" to do these sort of things. And because the Staff does not accept screen shots as proper evidence there is no way you can prove you are being harassed by others!I have a great issue with this " hidden by commenter" bullcrap because I HAVE A RIGHT TO SEE WHAT SOMEONE HAS WRITTEN ON MY OWN PAGE!!!! Especially when I pay $7.95 every 3 months for a premium memb

New Pope: Gay Marriage is the Work of the DevilHere's a 2010 equalitopia article by r0b where the newly elected Pope Francis (Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio) describes gay marriage as being the work of the devil:Argentina’s highest-ranking Catholic prelate has warned that the country’s gay marriage bill is a “machination” of the devil, reports Pink News. Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio has called on priests in Buenos Aires, where he is archbishop, to protest against the bill, which is progressing through Argentina’s parliament.In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, he wrote: “Let’s not be naive, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God .. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.

Free Art Xmas GiftAs a Christmas gift for one of my many watchers, I've decided to do a free commission raffle thing XD (Cuz I'm feeling generous and also this will show how many of my watchers actually like my art). :3All you have to do is fave the journal and I'll use a random number generator to select the winner on Christmas Eve. I will then note the winner asking what they would like done for them. It can be any of my commission types (Simple background, detailed background, Art Nouveau), and it can be realistic art or anime art ^^I'm so damn hungry
The Bracelet ProjectI saw this on tumblr... I thought I'd share it with all of you.“The Bracelet Project.Each disorder has a color that corresponds to it.Anorexia is Red.Bulimia is Purple.EDNOS is Pink.Depression is blue.Self harm is Orange or Black.Fasting at the time is Green.Suicidal is Yellow.Overweight/Obese is Turquoise.Anxiety/Panic disorder/OCD is Teal.Adding 1 white bead means you’re trying to recover.If your bracelet is half of the color that your disease is and half white it means you’re in recovery.You can also make the strand the main disorder you have then add beads to your lesser disorders, or if you have EDNOS, if you have more anorexic or bulimic tendencies then you can add a red or purple bead.If you see a girl in public wearing one, you are supposed to make eye contact and point to your bracelet. If she nods then you know she is part of the bracelet project.Spread awareness about the bracelet project.”mine is blue, with a red, pink, black and

My DeviantArt StoryThe greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do. December 25th, 2006. I was sixteen. Everyone wore masks, they didn't like having to stare at the monster beneath whenever they looked in the mirror. Most of my time was spent writing and learning how to operate my dad's Minolta x700. Digital art slowly took over traditional mediums. I was never really one for socializing, so there were many nights spent with Dr. Pepper and pumpkin seeds while I designed the night away. The art in this gallery is a mix of favorites and imagery similar to the content of the paragraphs. These artists deserve some recognition - go leave them a comment! I started basic training January 2009. It wasn't how I wanted to experience snow for the first time. I was still lu
