Facepalm-Worthy Series 3 This happened to me when drawing this ooold picture of mine at home:
Some of you know that picture is just a CENSORED version. The full version is a... longer picture, basically :iconkruemelplz:
I went to bed so late, it was friday, I didn't turn off my computer and left several programs and the web browser open.
Next morning (saturday) my dad phoned a computer specialist because we were having internet conexion problems.
Ok, my dad came into my room with that guy at 08:30 a.m. YES, I was sleeping like a pig and they came into my (dark) room without even asking (sometimes my dad can be so retarded that creates this kind of rude, uncomfortable and surrealist situations unintentionally)
When that guy saw me on bed was like "WTF is all this :iconwtfisthisplz: but this man paid me so I must do my work(?)". He sat on my chair and started to close programs in my pc to work properly. My dad was standing on his right and looking
Facepalm-Worthy Series 2JUNE 2006. 3rd uni year (dunno why it seems I had all my fails in my uni period)
Unfortunately I use to be a person who has SO intense and vivid dreams (and really bad ones). One day this played a dirty trick on me:
I left my cell phone on my bedside table as usual and went to sleep because next day I had an exam at 9:00 a.m.
It seems I was that obsessed and nervous about my exam that I dreamt my best uni friend phoned me at 8:00 a.m. or so to tell me I must not forget that our "Preventive Medicine III" teacher postponed the exam one hour later.
Ok, I just believed that dream.
My alarm clock rang and I totally passed. I slept 45 mins more. Now imagine my face when I went to uni by bus one hour later and saw all my classmates coming out of the classroom rather than entering it :iconaloneplz:
Just then I understood all.
I just wanted to leave this world.
Some people are... X'D This morning, when I came back home, I found a really interesting note when taking the elevator. I couldn't help taking a photo from my mobile phone:
" DO NOT URINATE IN THE ELEVATOR
- Urinate before leaving home.
- If you're coming back home, please kindly wait just a few more seconds until you are out, it will not take so long.
The President of the Homeowners Association, 2-F "
The best of all is that note clearly indicates who this was written TO because of the language our president used on it, so we all can know who did it, since only one of our neighborings speaks that dialect
The point is (in my opinion): Does an elevator really take that long that you can't wait a LITTLE bit more??? :iconwhywouldyoudothatplz: lol it seems some people get exasperated so easy. Dunno why but I totally imagine our president also putting chairs for the
Funny images XD*** This journal is manly designed for my watchers, people who are familiar with the fandom/s that they and I share.
So if you are not interested in the fandom/s I show or it's not your humor, just close this window or let it be like mature people do, "don't like, don't look". I just posted this with the best of intentions, to make some of my watchers smile, not to ruin anyone's life.
:iconleaderplz::iconsaysplzo I look like it?
:iconfacepalmplz: Pfff... still hungry?:
:icontruestoryplz::iconsaysplz:The real reason why Madara couldn't say "NO" to Kabuto:
Lol! Judas and Jesus even have 11 friends in common on fb! (you know, the other 11 disciples) lmao! I cannot!

I don't want people editing my art, but I must admit this thing I found made my day:
Here you are a blue-balls Sasori
Why I am who I am today.I am going to tell you a story. It's short, I promise.
Once, in my Junior year of high school, I took a course in debate. I love debate. Some of you may have noticed this.
We had an assignment to complete. It was worth 350 points. It was half of our final for the course, the other half being our first (and only, in the course) formalized debate.
We had to write a persuasive essay on some subject or another. It wasn't actually related to the topic of our debates for the other half of the final, to encourage us to diversify. I chose to do mine on legalization of prostitution, if I recall correctly (if it's of any interest, the topic for my group's formal debate was population control and as a subanecdote, during the course of my group's research, I realized I disagreed with our standpoint; we still won the debate, and I convinced a few of the other side's members that it was a good idea).
We were told, for the persuasive essay, to peer edit each others' work. We were given a checklist of
Stephanie Meyer, I've lost all respect for you.Yeah, this sounds like hyperbole, but let me explain.
For those of you who don't know, the series Fifty Shades is picking up a LOT of momentum among bored housewives and BDSM enthusiasts. Despite the actual stuff being so laughably bad that even those who do this are calling out the author on her BS. If you actually read the books, they’re horribly written.
However, here's a twist in the tale: The Fifty Shades series is an erotic fan-fiction based on Twilight, originally titled "Masters of the Universe". It was cobbled together by E. L. James, a British author, and was posted on fanfiction.net for a time before being taken down because of the racy material. She then posted the work on her own site, and eventually, several publishers came forward and offered to publish the series. They bid on it, to the tune of millions of dollars.
Now, here's where the problems start. (And no, you will not want to buy the books after what I'm about to say.)
Fifty Shades has been called a 'comple
Tom is Wrong. ...Again. [Lessons Inside]And so are his fans.
I'm going to regret writing this, aren't I? I haven't been following *TomPreston's dA career lately but a little birdy told me about his recent journal and I again find myself compelled to comment and unable to as I was blocked for comments like this: http://comments.deviantart.com/1/269600547/2285103787
I'm not inciting anyone to attack him or his fans, I'm just venting in my personal space. But it's the fans that are more alarming to me this time around than in my previous dissection of Tom's views on art.
Needless to say Tom's discussion is... just weird. Especially this talk about RGB printers.
If you don't know the difference between RGB (screens) and CMYK (print) this image basically sums it up:
For the record I use the fill bucket in PS. I use it on a layer under my line art

BUt X'D someone please give this poor guy a cigarette or something.
IP confusionIt's sad to see people fighting about intellectual property rights when they apparently have no clue what those are, how they work and what is allowed (and not).
Prime example: http://boltstrueno1fanever.deviantart.com/art/Onyx-Forepaw-Feb-2012-Ref-286737985 vs. http://yasuoxingxing.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4vcima
Obviously the latter is similar to the first.
The question is: is this allowed?
To answer that question, it is important to understand what rules apply and what intellectual property (IP) is.
There are three different kinds of IP that can apply here:
As the name hints this is the right to make copies of a work. It does not protect ideas, only the actual recorded work - artwork, documents, music etc.
This means that if someone copies your art (by directly copying it, by tracing it or otherwise adapting your work) you can certainly take action, but there is little you can do to prevent someone else creating their own
Vigilante Oriented GroupsWhen the deviantART Groups system launched in beta nearly two years ago we fully expected it to become home to a large variety of Groups centered around every subject possible and that is exactly what has happened and we are really encouraged to see so many embracing the Groups concept and coming together around these common topics to share their thoughts and works.
Today we’d like to discuss a certain type of Group which often comes to our attention, and not always in a good way; the “vigilante” style Group.
For those who may not be familiar with these types of Groups, what we call a “vigilante” Group are those which are created and centered around gathering deviants together to encourage the reporting of rule breakers and members who may be in violation of one or more official policies.
While gathering together in order to promote following the rules is not a bad thing there are good and bad ways for these types of Groups to operate; We always appre
Critiques: The artist's worst nightmare....Or so it is often thought. But it should never be.
(Please note, I'm not necessarily talking about deviantart's critique system, though this certainly applies to it. I'm talking about all feedback, whether in comments or notes, in person, or on another site. Deviantart simply has a good format for others to leave feedback to an artist.)
In art school, you tend two get two different types of young artists: people who are infatuated with their work, and people who have no confidence in it at all. But really, it all boils down to the same thing: as artists, we are incredibly reliant on other people's judgement of our work for our self-esteem. It sounds a bit stupid, but I don't know that I've talked to any serious business artists who say otherwise (though if you do, please tell me). Artists often view their work as an extension of themselves, or their soul, poured out on paper. We seek other people's approval, b
Homophobic #ToMyUnbornChild tweets turned into PSACharlotte Moore (*Cavatica) from Raleigh, North Carolina has created a PSA against homophobia after the Twitter hashtag #ToMyUnbornChild attracted homophobes to publicly announce that they would murder their child if he or she was gay.
#ToMyUnbornChild became a trending topic on Twitter a few weeks ago, and while most people used it to write loving tweets to their future children, some homophobes decided to do just the opposite.
@Homophobes, a Twitter account that retweets homophobes to expose their ignorance, published an article of 100 extremely homophobic tweets, which gained quite a bit of attention around the web.
Charlotte Moore was inspired, and decided to write and direct a PSA using the tweets. The video was produced by Brian Lee and Nick Heim.

PE - The Beef with BasesWelcome to the Beef with Bases article. This may get a little controversial, so put on your heavy duty hats!
By now, we should all know what a base is. But just for a refresher - A base is a bald, naked figure for people to 'doll' clothes onto. Lately, more people have been making animal bases as well. Some argue that since they can't be dressed up, they aren't proper bases. But a base is a vague term to begin with.
Why do so many people make bases? What's the allure? Many people just start doodling and end up with a body they don't plan on finishing. So why let it go to waste? They fix it up a bit and let other people use it, so maybe others will find inspiration where theirs left off. Other times people are inspired by a pose, and want to practice their anatomy and draw the body. Sometimes people even have an idea in mind - say... a big set of mermaid poses! And more frequently, people see a piece of art t
Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update)Our view at deviantART regarding SOPA is that it's probably a bad idea. There should be better ways to deal with mass infringement on the Internet than this. This bill in our view can be seen as a threat to the open Internet itself and this is very hard to digest or support.
I personally have found information at the EFF and at Public Knowledge to be very helpful in understanding what is at stake.

Facepalm-Worthy Series 1Ok, when I was young, in my 3rd university year, I remember I was going out a saturday night with my friends and we randomly met other group of people (they were like 15 or so...).
We were talking about funny uni-related things and then I suddenly said:
- "Oh, did you know I've been said that in "Child Education" there are 149 girls and only one boy? And the best of all is they told me that boy is gay, so imagine, I guess he's not interested in any of those 149 girls at all :iconforeveraloneplz:"
Then a boy from that group we recently met replied to me in a really camp way:
- "Oh well, I'm studying Child Education and I'm the only boy in my class"
