Farewell DeviantartI've given this a lot of thought and I've decided to leave DA. Both of my biggest comics have gotten their own home now and there's really no reason for me to stick around here any longer. It's also clear that enough people here want me gone anyway, so now is a perfect time to pack my things and move on. I'll be leaving up my gallery for a few days and then slowly phasing it out over the coming weeks.Farewell Deviantart3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a good run, and I've made a lot of friends. I hope you all follow me to my new home here http://tinyurl.com/2v8tyyo
Thanks everyone for your kindness! It's been fun! Goodbye!

New Sta.sh Writer Toolbar
Formatting in Sta.sh Writer just got easier! Check out the brand new Writer toolbar, which includes new functionality such as adding lists, links, and text alignment! Though these formatting styles worked in the previous version of Writer, they could only be used if you manually typed in the HTML or copy and pasted from another application.
Oh, and we have an exciting new feature coming next week!
Moving on... CONTEST! WOO!That last journal was a doozie wasn't it? Let's do something fun instead and get our minds out of the muddy waters of art definitions for a minute.Moving on... CONTEST! WOO!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked to do a mini drawing competition. Kinda like what :iconhumon: just did. So here's a really basic run down of the rules in no way copied and pasted from her journal with minor alterations: j/k
The Drawing Competition:
1. Draw any of TomPreston's characters (SYAC, Alex Ze Pirate, or any smaller groups) in London.
2. Upload the image to your dA gallery.
3. Comment on this journal (or the main Fresh Epics comment box) with a link to your image.
- I'll then +Fav/add to collection it.
- I'll look though the collection and pick the winners.
Winners will get Alex Ze Pirate book 2 and SYAC Book 1, plus posters! YAY!
It should go without saying but parodies, trolling, hate art, or explicit sexual stuff = instant disqualifying. I mean, that should be a given but it needs to be said I suppose.
Deadline: A week from today: May 16th.
Updates for April 1stLooks like my April Fools joke went over pretty well. I was quite surprised to see the response, honestly! Was it the most original prank in the books? Absolutely not, but considering that I usually ignore April Fools Day and that people STILL believed it, I think it's alright. Sometimes the oldest jokes are the best and it's not like this was a contest trying to outdo everyone around me. Just having some fun for a change, which is something I need to do more often.Updates for April 1st3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, it shows how many people actually followed the link. Anyone who read the journal and followed the link to the trolololo song would've known it was a joke. But it seems a LOT of people didn't bother doing that, hehe.
Speaking of April Fools though, did you know that it was 4 years ago today that I began the Alex Ze Pirate web series? April 1st, 2008 was the day I began posting short one page gags involving my pirate characters on SheezyArt. It's kinda hard to believe it's only been 4 years as so much has happened since

My rules are the same as my other three giveaways, it is complected free, only thing you have to do is spread the word so other people can enter (it can be in a journal, poll, in your signature, or anywhere else, just link back here!) and watch me! (I would like a llama too! <3) and Fave this! Please! Otherwise you won't be entered and that would be sad
I will use random.org to get the number for the winner.
But, if you want to, or have spare points hanging around, I would really love you forever if you could give me a point or two, to make sure I can give away more prizes and host more giveaways in the future, as I am paying for this all by myself. I will give a shout out to all who have donated anything, from points to are to llamas <3 (If you give a load of point, then I will try and give you more than a shout out)
This will end in a month 2 weeks today, which is the:

Nintendo’s MiiversePrior to E3 starting up, Nintendo has done something unusual for them... they've given us more information about the Wii-U before their press conference! Specifically they've gone over the online capabilities of the Wii-U and how social networking works with it.Nintendo’s Miiverse3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nintendo showcased a video of a guy struggling to beat a Zombie boss. He uses the Wii-U Game Pad to look up other users who have had trouble with it. He even posts a note saying he's stuck. His friend sees the note on his mobile device and calls him, but instead he decides to contact another Wii-U user using the built in camera to communicate with video. He talks to an elderly grandpa who tells him how to beat the Zombie boss and instantly he goes right back into the game and succeeds.
Cheesy though it was, it showcased a number of cool features. The first of course being the fact there will be message boards surrounding specific games which you can communicate on, share screen shots, post questions and answers, etc. The second

Image Adjustments and Cropping in deviantART muro (Beta Testers)
A new set of tools have been added to deviantART muro for Beta Testers, for even more options when creating and editing artwork!

These changes give you an even broader means of creating dynamic works of art!
Kony 2012I've gotten a lot of requests to talk about this, which coincidentally happened right along side my two political cartoons taking off like wild fire. Dunno if it was an accident or bad timing, but right now it seems like everyone wants me to talk about Kony... which I honestly don't know why because I'm not a journalist and everyone else is making such a big deal about it I don't know what else I could offer to the discussion other than "yup, this is going on, check out the links."Kony 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now keep in mind this next bit will be very scarce in details because I still haven't been able to muster up enough facts and everyone else seems to already know so much, so I apologize if it's a bit condensed.
Who is Kony?
The LRA (Lord's Resistance Army) is a religious militant group which operates in several countries including Uganda, Sudan, and the Central African Republic. Formed in 1987 they gained prominence and attention for their extremist atrocities committed against civilians and ch
Charity: Water Starts the Process for the Well!I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in the charity: water project I wrote about in February of this year. Whether you were able to actively donate to, read up on, or help spread the word about this honorable cause, I genuinely felt touched by the actions of every person who took the time to participate.Charity: Water Starts the Process for the Well!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
I got so many inspiring and heart-warming Notes from deviants far and wide -- from those who had just donated to those who had no means to donate monetarily but who happily spread the word to others. Many even selflessly pledged their own birthdays, asking for donations to this great cause in lieu of gifts. In a world where a lot of the news headlines are depressing and bleak, my faith in the power of good and caring was restored by the deviantART community.
Some say that one should participate in charity for charity's sake, and I fully believe this.

I try to do this every once in a while, since I know a lot of DA users don't get the feedback or attention they really should. Then I thought, why just stop there? Let's make this whole journal about finding new artists!
So here's the deal. If you want more feedback/pageviews/critiques, whatever... just leave a comment below. Everyone else, I encourage you to look at at least ONE new artist within this journal. Someone you've never seen before. Go to their page and look at their work and write at least ONE comment. You can of course write as many comments as you want, and view as many artists as you want, but the goal is to try and get everyone viewing and talking to each other.
So come on everyone! Post a comment, ask for advice, and let's see if we can help sprea

MCM updatesHey everyone. A lot has happened within the past few days, some good and some bad, so I figured I should just give a quick update.MCM updates3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off this convention has to be one of the busiest and biggest conventions I have ever been to. I mean, I've been to the NYC comic con before and it was nothing like this! The turnout has been absolutely fantastic! Thank you everyone for coming out to see me!
I've had a few fans give me artwork and that's always a treat. One even reshape my kneaded eraser into pinky pie for me too. That was quite a lark! As you know, humon, vitaly, and stupid fox are here too and we have an anthology we've been selling. After a while of selling them I started to notice humon and vitaly were writing messages back and fourth like "bring me cake" or "the cake is for me! Not you!" and other fun stuff.
Overall I have been incredibly impressed at the intensity of this convention. I really have not experienced anything like it!
However, as awesome as this convention has been t

New Journal Category TreeIn our continuous quest to improve the deviantART experience, we have made some changes to the Journal categories that have resulted in a much more condensed and simplified group of selections. The simplification of categories will make the Journal submission process even easier, and make it easier to browse and find Journals you love.New Journal Category Tree2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The old category tree was trying to be too specific, which in turn made it tough to find the right category to submit to. The new categories are meant to be clearer, broader, and more inclusive. Starting today, all existing Journals will be migrated to the new category tree.
by techgnotic founder of depthRADIUS
What lead to this decision, you may ask? Like the torrid fate of many categories, in trying to be all-inclusive and find an appropriate lid for every pot, all that’s really been achieved is a scattering of too much really great stuff

When deviantART and Five Four decided to let the community take the lead...
It is only with the passage of time and chance moment of retrospective that the memories of an event from a decade past reveal that event to have been a harbinger of things to come – a prescient preview but of how people would very soon be changing the way they live their lives, and even defining their lives; a fundamental turn in what is to be valued in life and how to live it. The event of note occurred at the dawn of a new century and involved a group of young men were starting up a new apparel company not so much as a way to get rich (the old century paradigm) but as a way to express themselves and their lifestyle (the new century paradigm).

At the beginning of the week, the dT team worked on improving our internal development tools to increase efficiency. Then, on Wednesday, we let any staff members at the retreat pitch fun and exciting ideas for deviantART features that could be built in two days. After each feature idea was pitched, everyone from dT chose which projects they'd like to work on. Throughout the year, engineers primarily work on projects that are assigned to them, so sometimes it's important to turn the tables and let them choose projects in which they're most passionate and excited about.
