I'm sorry for it being really long.
hey, I thought I'd do a little design contest, nothing major
okay, so. in PKMNation I've been trying to get a little steel-type team. I have four out of the six pokemon I want so far... but they're all designed by me.
I kinda want to have one or two pokemon that aren't, but I'm probably not gonna have any luck waiting for someone to breed one. so I'm doing this instead
you don't have to be a part of pkmnation for this
but if you're not you should probably look at these:

Open a bmp image in photoshop or sai
decorate it in greyscale. You can see my texture above, it's was done in photoshop as render difference clouds. Rename the file to something you will remember.

THANK YOU!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I noticed that there are some people who are still going despite the week being over, or this event really caused them to think up some plan of action for the future to draw the unloved adoptables.
I'm personally happy that I was able to get some drawings out of the way for adopts that I just didn't have the motivation to draw up before, and I'm sure there were other people who felt the same way.
I also want to thank everyone who signal boosted this, whether through their own journals, twitter or the deviations they submitted of their adopt drawings.
I definitely want to see about running this again next year, I hope it can be just as big if not bigger. With the soaring popularity of species adoptables, I'm sure by next year even those who participated this year will have something to do.
But yeah a big than

Can I just. Toss this out thereThere's a legitimate market for selling adoptables. Like I shouldn't have to say this to anyone, at all, but there's an actual legitimate market of people who are more than willing to pay money for designs or species, no matter how unique.Can I just. Toss this out there1 year ago in Personal More Like This
people are allowed to do whatever they want with their money, artists are allowed to charge however much they want for their work, and
nothing's stopping you from drawing your own ~fan creature~ based on someone's closed species
it's super rude and shows no respect towards the artists
it doesn't say anything about the artist if they want to make their own creation and keep the rights to it for themselves... That's a thing artists do
But it says a whole lot about you when you choose to flip the biggest bird to the artist and do whatever you want with /their/ creations anyway. Just because you can't get into legal trouble doesn't mean it's not a dick thing to do. "Lol".

#Also useful for Art-trades
A Few Things You Need To Remember.
- You’re getting this for free. If you’re going to complain and be picky about the outcome then you need to commission someone, otherwise it’s not fair.
- If you’re doing an art-trade always keep your part of the deal. (Or at least attempt to.)
- You might want to make a list of what you will and won’t draw (ie: won’t draw up to a certain number of characters, Graphic nudity, etc.)
- Here’s a list of icons you can use to show your status: http://need-moar-plz-llamas.deviantart.com/journal/Open-closed-signs-219414365
- If you're doing an Art-trade you should realise that [maybe] you're asking too much for what you've done in return.
(ex: say you've given them a sketch you've completed in a minute and they've taken days to complete theirs.)

Commission TipsThe past few weeks, I've been getting quite a few notes regarding commissions: pricing, how to get people to commission you, quality expected, etc. After reading through and replying to them all, I've decided to write a news article for anyone to refer to. Here are some of my tips on maintaining a fairly steady commissions business. I hope they help!Commission Tips5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
(1) First off, the most commonly questioned topic is: pricing.
Now, for those who take point commissions, it's necessary to realize the value of points. So for starters, lets calculate how many dollars one point is worth. Knowing that$1.00 = 80 ...you can then derive that a point is worth $0.0125, or 1.25 cents. And since there is no such thing as a quarter cent, we round down. A point is the approximate equivalent of a penny.
Now taking that into consideration, think. How much are your commissions? I've seen lots of artists around dA who sell their art for 1-50 points. One to fifty points. That's from a penny

Adoptable Guide - who, what, why - BIG OL' FAQSo if you're reading this, you are curious about that title, or adoptables, or both, or yeah. YEAH.Adoptable Guide - who, what, why - BIG OL' FAQ1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, this is more of a few things I have noticed after watching adoptables sell for a few years. I don't sell them often, so I cant tell you how to design them, but I will give you tips on what I see selling.
What are Adoptables?
Generally, adoptables are designs that people make for others to use in whatever they please.
Are they free?
Sometimes. Mostly no, but sometimes yes! Some people give them away, some are cheap (like 10 cents cheap) and some are really expensive in the hundreds.
WOW. Who would BUY that?!
Anyone with money, I suppose! It's their art, let them price what they want. What's it to you if they don't make a sale?
Besides, if someone LIKES their art, and WANTS to pay that, then why bother questioning?
If it makes both of the artist and customer happy, let them do it.
Adoptables are dumb.
Okay, but don't tell that to th

Our Contest is Here!Well it's about time I let you all know what I've been thinking (lucky you...it's frightening I know). Anyway, as DA is a site that reaches out to so many people in so many countries, I've been thinking "culturally". So, our OC contest will be:Our Contest is Here!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"We've got Culture"
Deadline: December 1st
So what's it all about?
It's simple really! This is a celebration of culture! It can be your own, or one you love! It has to be an EXISTING culture, or one that EXISTED at some point. For this contest we're not open to OC cultures unfortunately, interesting though they are, we're celebrating the cultures of this world.
So what do you have to do?
Take your character, and throw them into your chosen culture, it's a bonus if that character would fit into the culture!
Be creative, is there a famous story or legend that culture is known for? Why not have your character reenact it? Perhaps you'v
