I fail at artI was going trough old binders and found some of my ancient "art". Some of it was hilariously bad so of course, being shameless as I am, now it's time to share.
This is how I was drawing when I was a teenager, something around 15-17.
Behold my weaboo phase! Yes, I was drawing animu. I never got a good grip on that style so it's all hideous.
kawaii desu ne?
That hand. That space between eyes. That fabric, hair, expression, composition ...well everything.
The next few images I would call "look at me, imma ahrtis for realz" series.
Deep. Deep as a puddle.
Remember kids. If you fail at anatomy just add random lines. Random ass lines make everything better. Yep.
Just look at this person's face. Don't you want to punch it? I do, so very very much.
Dear, sixteen years old akreon, you fucking suck. Don't ever come back.
Pancake found!So there was this plushie that I really liked when I was a kid. It was my favourite plushie. I've nicknamed him Placek (Pancake in Polish). He got thrown away nearly 10 years ago by the evil beast also know as my mum. I still miss him tough. This is exactly how he looked like:
I'm offering 500 for finding a picture of this kind of toy and 1000 for information where they can still be bought.
It was produced in late 80's or early 90's. If there are still some of these in existence this is probably the only way to catch a trail of them.
I'm having a huge nostalgia trip here. I miss my Pancake! :iconcryforeverplz:
:iconnaiisa: found it! Now I know where to search for Pancake
I would like to thank all of you who were so nice and tried to help. The response this journal got is simply amazing! Thank you once agian!
Well gosh darnit, son of a biscuitThis is a black Tuesday for dA. All my favourite accounts are getting banned one after another. First :iconbutthurtbrigade: and a good chunk of it's members including the fabulous :iconfuhrer-glasses: and :iconstapledslut:. And now even :iconwolfofthunders:
I will have to completely reorganise my breakfast schedule because of some overzealous admin. Usually I wake up, prepare nomnoms, settle in front of the computer and search for some morning drama. butthurtbrigade was one of my favourite places to acquire my morning dose of concentrated baawws. Now when it is gone I will be forced to actively search for the dramas elsewhere and I don't like that.
My breakfast should look like this:
And now for a few days will look like this. Which is mostly inconvenient and you should care because...umm...yes, because yes.
I'm disturbedAm I the only person who got depress after checking out the latest dA poll --> http://poll.deviantart.com/378/ ?
For those who don't follow the oh so exiting events of the dA lowest bar, the question was "do you believe in ghosts?" and surprisingly over 10 000 deviants not only believes in ghosts but also claims to have experienced a first hand ghostly encounter.
At which point dA turned into a mental asylum? No seriously, what the fuck is going on here? Ok, I understand that this is an artist community. Artists tend to be very dysfunctional people and in large flocks can derp sanity and logic into oblivion. Never the less this poll caught me off guard.
Note to self: While on deviantArt browse more art ...read less.
PS. I don't know why but some of you are mixing religion into this. All I can ask is, please don't? Some disagreements are fine but as soon as religion topic comes up every discussion turns into a full blown flame war. I should have predicted it because ghosts ar
Can someone explain "renders" to me?I've been bumping into this more an more so I decided to share my RAEG.
So there is this group of people on dA who take some already existing art and cut out the backgrounds. That's all. They find some artwork, usually anime fanart, cut the background out, add their own watermark and BAM post it to their galleries as a free to use stocks without the permission of the original authors.
What's most infuriating there is almost always a disclaimer such as this one :
Oi, dumbfucks! Yes I'm talking to you. Why should anyone credit you for something that you did not create. You've contributed nothing. You've cut the background out, something that in most cases, can be done basically automatically by a computer program with a little to no human assistance.
The whole dA's category for stock renders is flooded with this shit --> http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/stockart/3drenders/
I'm sorry but I was under the impression that a render is a 2d image generated from a 3d
FAQI should have done this a long time ago:
What program do you use?
Adobe Photoshop CS5
Corel Painter 11
What kind of tablet do you use?
Wacom Intuos 4
Where did you learn to draw?
I was using cheat codes from the very start - both my parents are artists + my mum was organizing weekend drawing courses in our very house. You can pretty much say I spent my whole childhood in an art school.
When I was in high school I was attending course preparing for exams into the faculty of architecture. This is the course: www.labirynt.pl
During the first and second year at the university we had some drawing/painting/sculpting lessons but they kinda sucked. Besides they were worth only 1/10th of the ECTS points you could get from pretty much any other subject so nobody gave a shit.
Will you make any tutorials?
Probably not. I don't feel competent enough.
Coming OutIt's true, I am Chinese and I was born this way.
At a young age I began to notice this difference. I was attracted to neither boys nor girls. In middle school, I liked math, and in college, I did my homework all night long.
Being Chinese is not a choice, it is genetic. There are risks to being Chinese because society cannot accept the union between a human and a textbook. I have Chinese friends who didn't need sex because they could foreplay instruments and get screwed by O Chem instead. Now, they don't have a social life and are shunned by others.
But fear not, life will get better. I grew up as a Chinese and I am proud of it (just look at my tumblr user name Maid-en-China ). There is the LGBTC (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Chinese) community to help you be comfortable with your Chinese orientation.
1,338,299,512 people came out as Chinese. You are not alone.
April fools!!! ... Oh wait...
Update: Yes, this is obviously a j
FailureWell, this is awkward.
So, I guess my plan had some minor flaws. Namely that when you tie up deviantART staff with yarn and lock them in their office supply closet, they can use scissors and letter openers to break free. I even put a mirror on the inside of the door to confuse them! How did they know that was the way out? They're some smart humans.
They broke free, activated their laser pointers, and regained control of the servers and databases while we were dreadfully distracted. Now, everything is back to normal on deviantART. Worst of all, they said we "were very, very bad" and that they were "disappointed in us". That guilt is hard to live with, my friends.
We're back to drawing board now. No, we won't give up hope of total world domination. We're so close, I can feel it! Watch out, world! This isn't the last you'll see of FUR.
But world domination will have to wait until another day. Who's ready for a cat nap?
Guess who's backBack again.
Tell some men.

Internet TimeWe had the Oscars recently and as usual it wasn't without problems. One of the controversies was Chris Rock's biting commentary about doing voice work for animated films, which was unfortunately insulting to the many hard working (yet perpetually unknown) talents who produce about 90% of all voice work in the animated medium. Chris Rock's joke was funny for his circle of friends and the aging academy, but to younger artists and professionals it was very disrespectful. Voice actress Tara Strong took particular issue with Rock's comment and as we speak his twitter account is no doubt being flooded with angry hate messages and likely racism too... which is very unfortunate. http://www.examiner.com/african-american-entertainment-in-national/tara-strong-attacks-chris-rock-over-oscar-2012-animation-comments-quotes
Other issues, such as glossing over Harry Potter and The War Horse completely and giving a Best Animated Film award to the likes of Rango, just continued to fuel my opin

dArp: Daily DeviationsThe DD is a known abbreviation within deviantART.
But those two letters can be a challenge for all on deviantART sometimes. For this dArp article i will not focus on art but collected the articles and explanations of other people.
Also known as Daily Deviation. It is a daily feature given since the beginning of deviantART to showcase a few selected pieces. For 24 hours it will be seen at the footer or at the DD page. Afterwards it will vanish among the older DD pages. It will be forgotten instantly after those 24h and only gets a bit attention when CVs do their monthly DD feature again or when someone stumbles across them by accident.
Artworks featured as a DD can be easily recognized by that little red heart framed by a golden background below the actual deviation. It often comes together with comments like "Congratulations for the DD".
DDs can not be a journal, a WIP or any artwork located at the 'Scraps' category.

Commissions Closed // Anya // BBAHello!
Well, I received a lot of commission orders. I want to thank everyone who bought one. I will do my very best to make you a piece that you'll love
The list is pretty long, but I'll be working diligently on them. Thank you for your patience while I work my way down the list to your name.
I'll email you when I begin your piece, so that you will know to expect it soon
I'm also delighted at the positive response to my photos of Anya, my domestic fox.
I will have many more photos and videos to share in a few weeks. She is not living with me as of yet - I had to move to a neighboring city because my old city was telling me that foxes were not allowed (even though they had no actual, written law that said this and therefore no legal grounds to enforce this prohibition on me, but they did anyway).
So I bought a new house (with an acre!) and will be bringing her home to Michigan in early May (shes living with a friend in Florida at the moment). So when she's with me I'll have the op
Submission Rules and Information (LISTED ARTISTS)*** This journal is for LISTED GUEST ARTISTS ONLY***
Edit: Please remember the deadline is less than a month away! There's still artists yet to choose a category to be in. Remember it's first come first serve.
Theme: Our Earth
This theme will be divided into four subcatagories of colours; green, blue, red/pink and yellow/orange.
For this art book, we would like images depicting nature, our Earth.
Each artist will be catagorised under one colour, and must make the colour their main colour. However any shade of chosen colour is accepted.
Green could be images of forests, summer, spring, jungles, plains etc.
Blue could be winter, oceans, skies, night, water, etc.
Red/pink could be sunsets, flower fields, volcanic environments, fi
New deviantART ThumbnailsHey folks!
You may remember a while back we showed off some brand new thumbnails in #hq's Journal. Well, after many weeks of porting and tweaking based on community feedback, we finally got these brand new thumbs ready for beta testing!
The new thumbnails
UPDATE (May 19, 2012): Based on feedback received, we've updated the new thumbnails to be justified. Thumbnails are now spaced out across the rows, making them flush against the left and right sides of the page. When a browser's window is too small, justification cannot happen without leaving larger awkward spaces. In these cases, justification is turned off and thumbnails become left aligned. We think these changes present the most appealing interface for both cases.
For those of you who didn't see the new thumbs when they were previewed a month back, here's a re

Woofs Are Serious, So SeriousThis is something I've said before, but that was probably well over a year ago when there were less people to see it.
I don't want people to stop drawing. Anyone, no matter how doofy or weird.
Bad art is still art, and I love bad art.
I don't hate ANY of the art I redraw or fav. All of it brings a smile to my face and it's always a sadness when it gets deleted due to flooding.
I don't redraw things to "make a statement" or "stick it" to someone, I do it because it's funny to me. And sometimes it's funny to me to redraw something by an obvious bait account or something "not that bad".
None of my work is malicious, it was all done with a light heart.
Woofs are for shits and giggles, a woof is not a weapon.
Bad art doesn't lower DA's quality, NON-art lowers its quality. Screenshots, traced bases, demotivationals, photobucket dumps, these are anti-art. Nothing new was created, only submitted. In the case of traced bases; de-created and submitted.
So please settle down a bit when you

Does anyone else remember being a baby?If so, I have a question:
I thought it was pretty common, but I've only met two other people who remember, including my mum. I remember a lot of things from when I was a baby, and from about two year old an onwards, everything is as clear as if it were yesterday.
My question is: Before you could recognize yourself in a mirror, what did you imagine yourself to look like? I thought I was a weird grey toad thing in a tuxedo with massive lips and mickey mouse gloves. But I would like to know what other people thought.
More art is coming, in a bit of a block right now unfortunately.
