Fantroll Cleanup - Raffle Time!It pains me to say it, but it is apparent to me that I have way too many fantrolls.Fantroll Cleanup - Raffle Time!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, I'll be cleaning up my roster and hopefully I can find a good home for the ones I'm letting go of.
I've classified my fantrolls into two types:
ADOPTED [posted here] and MADE BY ME [posted here]
The ones that are Made By Me will be sold for points, plain and simple.
(However, there are two fanadventures of mine that I'm on the fence about. One is a next-gen for the canon fantrolls while the other is rather large but my very first. I could put up the next-gen for adoption and offer redesigns or just let whoever chooses to ado

No matter if it is educational or just for fun, books always come with a special magic that immediately captivates you - even more when you are reading it for entertainment.

Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is one of my favourite games of all time, surpassed only by Morrowind, and I've been planning for a long time to put together a feature with original artwork. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since almost all Oblivion-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
Oblivion is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2006. The central plot revolves around the efforts to thwart the fanatical cult Mythic Dawn that plans to open the gates to the demonic realm of Oblivion. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are quest lines for several guilds, and many side missions. Despite being less diversified and immersive than Morrowind, the incredible amount of quality third-party add-ons add a lot of scope and replay value to the game.

For the public session!Okay, so it's now time for me to try to make this a thing!For the public session!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is my first time hosting a Homestuck session, so it'll be a bumpy ride, but I want to give it a shot! So, first things first, let's cover the topics of the polls I put up over the past couple days.
There will be 12 slots total (including me), with one of every class & aspect for god tiers. We'll try for equal numbers of Prospit and Derse dreamers, and shipping will happen (but in the application you can state what quadrants your troll has already filled).
Now, regarding the Prospit and Derse shenanigans/the Reckoning/the Battlefield War, it was a pretty close count between doing them like canon and thinking up our own shenanigans. I'll add in the application what ideas you have, if any.
So here's the application:
Please be as detailed as possible with your applications. The more information we have, the better.
You may submit more than one application for a spot, but please submi

In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.
We received a lot of feedback that deviants preferred to use #1, #2, etc. to form lists, and that the automatic conversion to tags was distracting. In response to this feedback, we've updated the system so that using # before a number will no longer create a link to a tag page. Changed by kemayo

Never doubt yourself.How to be beautiful?Never doubt yourself.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For lovely eyes - "Always look at the good side of other people." (Phil. 2:4)
For tender lips - "Speak only kind and truthful words." (Col. 4:6)
For a charming face - "Always smile with a happy heart." (Prov. 15:13)
For a graceful body - "Reach out with compassion to those in need." (Rom. 9:15)
You see, beauty may be physical apperances to some, but it's the soul for many others.
So when you look in the mirror and don't see your beauty, look inside.
You'll always be beautiful to me.
Wow, never thought this would get so many views and favs!

Prismacolor Marker ReviewHello, :iconpeachfuzz: here. If you are interested in Prismacolor markers and their uses, then this might just be worth a read. I currently own a 144-piece set, and have run dry several smaller sets in the past year and a half. For this review, keep in mind that all colors that are capitalized (i.e. Violet or Yellowed Orange) are the actual color names of the markers used in the examples. All examples used are credited to the original artist (Mostly me) in the description as well as in the link.Prismacolor Marker Review9 years ago in Personal More Like This
PRICES: As with all Prismacolor products, the markers can be quite spendy. I have seen them anywhere from $1.50 to $6.00 per marker. From personal experience, I would not advise paying much more than $2.00 per marker, especially when buying in bulk. Individual markers are always more expensive, but anything over about $2.75 a piece is unreasonable. When on the trail of good deals, surfing the net and checking out art supply sites is always a good idea. My personal favorite is DickBlick.c

"My art isn't worth it"
"People won't pay what I want"
"Insert a million excuses here"
This is you! Or rather I should start off by saying this is all of us because I don't believe in playing the victim, we are equals here. We have all said it at some point in regards to sales. I personally have said it plenty of times. You, the reader are probably no exception.
Pricing is difficult, I offer my service and advice to who I can but at the end of the day I can't reach everyone to give you this talk. So I am writing this general journal about why your art ACTUALLY does not sell. I am going to try to be possitive but this journal may be harder to digest then most of the other informational journals simply because of the nature of the reason under pricing occurs. Which is because the seller has no self confidence, no experience, and is making business about their worth as
Adoptables, AuctionsWhat is an Adoptable Auction?Adoptables, Auctions2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
An Adoptable Auction it's like a normal auction, with an adoptable on the plate and the highest point/money offer wins. These are not 'first come, first serve' adoptables.
Is it the same thing as a Name-Your-Price Adoptable?
Both can cause a bidding war, but no, they're not the same thing. Auctions are more organized and have more terms to them that the NYP Adopts. NYP Adopts usually have a price range and not a starting bid, they don't have an autobuy, nor a minimum bid raise and end when the Adoptable Creator feels like it.
Bid = Money/Point Offer
Starting Bid/Base Bid (SB) = The first and lowest bid you can make for the adoptable (usually decided by the Adoptable Creator)
Minimum Raise = The minimum amount of money/points that you need to add to a previous bid to beat it (usually decided by the Adoptable Creator)
Autobuy/Buyout (AB) = The price that you need to pay to be sure to get the adopta

Petition against Daniel Toshso as everyone should know by now i am a big petitioner against rape, and for more women's rights etc.Petition against Daniel Tosh2 years ago in Personal More Like This
this petition is to take Daniel Tosh completely off the air. not just no new episodes. no reruns, no new specials, no new anything.
why you might ask? Daniel Tosh is funny, and he's good for a laugh at times.
a few days ago a girl and her friend went to a comedy club to see Dane Cook and a few others. after he was done, Daniel Tosh took the stage and after a little bit, Tosh began to make rape jokes. to which the young woman took a stand and yelled that Rape Jokes were not funny.
Mr. Tosh began to badger the woman, making jokes about how it would be "funny" if someone was getting raped by "like five guys" right now.
The woman felt threatened and left in a hurry to protect herself.
Rape jokes are not funny in any context, and this is unacceptable.
please sign this petition to show that this will not stand.
