EncouragementWhen I started out on DeviantArt, I used to be one of those artists that thought I could never do art properly.Encouragement7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'll start saying that I spend most of my childhood getting only little encouragement.
My parents were, like many other parents, convinced that art wasn't that much of a useful skill since it's nearly impossible to earn money with -- and would've liked it if I spend my time doing something more useful instead. At school I was that pathetic kid without friends. Creative, yet very introverted. The one that gets bullied in the schoolyard. Needless to say; it was rare to find people saying something nice about me, and it was even more rare to find someone actually encouraging me.
Back then, I used to believe that I was alone. I initially signed up to DeviantArt to find people with similar interests. But it happened to change my mind along the way. When I came into contact with other artists, I came to realize that there were in fact many people just like me. People th
Protect Your WorkFor many artists, art theft is a frustrating reality. No matter how we watermark, logo, or constrain the resolution of our work, there are instances where artwork will be reposted, ripped, or used for commercial gain without credit or compensation. For some, this can be almost flattering, to know that there are those that like your work enough to steal it. But, the fact still remains, that your work has been used without permission, and for no gain of your own.Protect Your Work6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I have been a photographer for four years now, and throughout that time I am always learning. Part of that education is around copyright, and how to protect my work. The collage above is a brief representation of some of the ways my photography has been stolen. Some were edited without permission, event advertisements, included in a calendar, manipulated to advertise jewelry, sold on canvas, for promoting a cosmetic brand, or even for music videos.

It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead

Google Analytics PRIVACY CONCERNS! ermahgerd!What information IS and what information IS NOT available through Google Analytics?Google Analytics PRIVACY CONCERNS! ermahgerd!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
And what are the privacy concerns regarding this new change in Deviantart?
If you don't care what they are, and just want to opt out of Analytics, I have information on how to do that here: ( how to opt out of Analytics tracking ).
Analytics users are not tracking you.
Google is tracking you.
The first thing to know is that you CAN prevent Google Analytics from tracking your behavior, if you really want. I'll discuss that in a bit. If that's all you're here for, the link is at the end of this entry, but it's really not as much of a privacy concern as you probably think it is. Analytics does not save any PII (Personal Identifiable Information), including your IP address.

MANAWORLD LINGERIE ART CONTEST!!!!!!!FINAL DAY FOR ENTRIES!!!! THE DEADLINE: MARCH 31st 2014!!!!!MANAWORLD LINGERIE ART CONTEST!!!!!!!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
The Rules: Are fairly straight forward. Simply draw, ink, paint, dress up in cosplay, etc. Any of the characters from MANAWORLDCOMICS (.com) in the Lingerie Contest Theme.
You CAN use other themes in the entry, for example: Veronika Red dressed/cosplaying as Jessica Rabbit getting undressed from an evening gown and showing of her lingerie.
AS LONG AS THE LINGERIE THEME IS IN THERE!
(And yes you can have multiple characters in the same image if you want.)
REMEMBER THE DEADLINE: MARCH 31st 2014!!!!!
NOTE: It CAN be R or even X-rated if you want to have some very naughty fun with Syx and/or the rest of them. BUT if it doesn't adhere to DA rules please post on Hentai Foundry or Email image to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
MANAWORLD is a Fantasy setting, but you can take some liberties.
Entries will be featured here on my DA page as well as in the MANAWORLD DA group. (Unless it violates DA rules) a

Yeah, well, blame it on the fact that my kids forced me to watch a marathon of Star Wars episodes.
1) PATIENCE YOU MUST HAVE, my young Padawan
"Street photography requires patience. More often than not I come home with nothing, but it’s the times that I do come home with a photo that will be with me forever, that makes it so worthwhile. (...) Street photography is about searching, finding and reacting…" – Jesse Marlow
"Buy a good pair of comfortable shoes, have a camera around your neck at all times, keep your elbows in, be patient, optimistic and don’t forget to smile." – Matt Stuart
“I only know how to approach a place by walking. For what does a street photographer do but walk and watch and wait and talk, and then watch and wait some more, trying to remain confident that the une

You've had the idea, you've built your emotes, you've put them all together in an animated GIF which you upload for the world to enjoy. The comments start coming in; "Sweet", "Cute", Love it", "Why is it so slow?". All well and good, apart from that last one.
So you take a closer look and either:
a) you scratch your head and think "it wasn't that slow when I built it"
b) you think it looks fine but other people are still saying it's slow
So what's the problem? The answer is Stupid Browsers. Simple as that. Our browsers are just rubbish at rendering fast animated GIFs.
An animated GIF file consists of a number of image blocks, each with it's own control block.&

GTK theme preferences - Customize GTK themesCustomizing a GTK theme can be frustrating, especially with both GTK2 and GTK3 themes lying there. And why go through all the hassle when you want to change just few things. You no more have to! I've made a GTK theme configuration tool that allows anyone to change some basic elements of a GTK theme easily (both GTK2 and GTK3) with a simple interface.GTK theme preferences - Customize GTK themes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Customize selected background color

This works for any theme (If doesn't work correctly with a theme, please report bug here https://github.com/satya164/gtk-theme-config/issues). You can revert all changes with just a click.

The United States Congress is proposing two laws that address the problem of wide-scale unlicensed distribution on the Internet of motion pictures, songs, trademarked goods, and patented pharmaceuticals.
One of the proposals is called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and would direct search engines in the United States to block Internet sites outside the United States that are primarily engaged in distributing unlicensed content.Another proposal called PIPA (Protect IP Act) would block websites located in the United States as well.The Obama administration is putting a stop to these proposals. It wants the Internet companies and the content companies to get together and come up with more functional and less destructive solutions.
My Chibi Pony InfoAll of our Chibi Ponies are made from very soft and cuddly fleece. I decided to go with carefully cut felt for the eyes because I wanted a more 3d look compared to iron on or patch eyes. The eyes and cutie marks are glued on with a high quality fabric glue. I put a lot of sewing detail into the hair and tails.My Chibi Pony Info2 years ago in Personal More Like This
They are about 7.5" from hooves to ears, and about 10" from nose to the end of the tail. They are all balanced and can stand up by themselves no problem.

Laying a wash
A wash is a large area in a watercolor painting where the paint flow and diffusion have been manipulated to efface individual brushstrokes. Within wash areas, color transitions are usually gradual and span analogous hues. Laying a wash is one of the most satisfying tasks in watercolor painting. Essentials of this s
