10 Tips for Taking Better PhotosA good photo is key to selling your plushie online. Your customer can't hold it in their hands and look at it from all angles, so it’s up to you to provide clear, sharp photos that will capture their interest and convince them to buy from you.10 Tips for Taking Better Photos3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Use a tripod. A steady camera means a sharper image, and lets you concentrate on framing the shot. You can get a small, simple, perfectly satisfactory tripod for about $10, or in a pinch you can prop your camera on a flat surface If for some reason you are obliged to hold the camera, grasp it with both hands, draw your elbows in until they touch, press your arms as tightly as possible to your chest, and hold your breath while snapping the photo.
2. Unlike most subjects, plushies aren't going to fidget, so you have plenty of time to compose your shot (if your plushie does start fidgeting, run away as fast as you can and call an exorcist). Make sure the plushie is centered and fills up most of the frame. Most c

We were wrong all this time....MAKE SURE YOU READ THE ENTIRE ENTRY BELOW BEFORE COMMENTING OR JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS!!!!!!We were wrong all this time....4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you may have already heard this but I have some very unfortunate news:
Remember back when all the 'trolls' were posing as Hasbro and getting the MLPFIM episodes removed off YouTube relentlessly? Well guess what.......they weren't trolls or fakers of any kind, it was actually Hasbro themselves.
Yes, Hasbro has been pulling a WMG on YouTube and requesting the episodes to be removed. Now you can still find episodes on there currently (and obviously people will never stop uploading the episodes to YouTube), but if you're wondering why so many channels have been going down due to this, that is the reason. Don't believe me? Watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?featurelayer_embedded&v=Gq9k9uEpEm8
Now I know a lot of us are going to be mad and such, but please, for the love of Celestia, do not go on talking

Ribbon And Lace Dividers PLZ GuideLast Updated: 1/24/15Ribbon And Lace Dividers PLZ Guide4 years ago in Personal More Like This
A note for all you slut shamersI hate the word "slut." I think it's one of the ugliest words in the language, because it's a tool used by a culture that hates women, to oppress and objectify them. We consider a WOMAN a slut if she goes out and fucks a lot of men -- Culture NEVER abuses a man for the same behavior.A note for all you slut shamers2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It comes from a belief - brought on by religion - that men need to control what a woman does with her pussy. For example, in most of America, the law says that a woman can give her pussy away, but she can't sell it. WTF? Of course, if she gives it away too much, we say she's immoral, a bad person, a slut.
Here on d/a, a lot of hate is thrown around at women who show their naked bodies -- they're called sluts, too. Yet I know virgins here who create very erotic nudes-- they can't be called sluts, they've never fucked at all!
Creating visual fantasies has nothing to do with virtue or vice -- it's about freedom, and personal choice. It CAN'T be immoral, and can't be "slutty", because it doesn't touc
Time for some blind, fuming RAGEI've been storing this one up for a while. I realize here, I'm probably preaching to the choir but if I don't say this, I'm going to explode. I've been bottling this for way too long. If anything, you people, the appreciators of art, can print this up and hand it to someone when you hear them say shit like this.Time for some blind, fuming RAGE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
(Note: "Asshole" is not just one person but a number of people who have said these things to me and other artists I know.)
Asshole: Art is NOT a job. It's just not. It doesn't involve manual labor, you get to sit on your ass all day, and most of you are even your own bosses! You don't have to deal with HALF the shit WE (who have REAL jobs) do. I bet you work like three hours a week, maybe. Don't even get me started on the idiots who sell those blank canvases and glued together furniture BS for like A JIZZLLION DOLLARS. You want to know what a real job is? Stand on your feet for twelve hours straight listening to people complain day in and day out. THAT is a job. Or how about sa

The other day we celebrated a very special birthday: the first anniversary of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" first Season's first Episode, broadcasted on 2010-10-10!
I started to prepare this Journal Entry months ago, a few days after I had watched my first episode of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" on Sunday, 14 August 2011. I just never got around to finish it, but by now you surely have noticed that I am a full-fledged Brony anyway; my huge plz-collection probably gave that away
What in tarnation is a Brony, you wonder? Well, on the one hand it is a village in Central Poland with a population of 80 citizens - which just got about 20% cooler in ten seconds flat! More commonly though it is understood as described in
Say NO to the Internet PricesI've been observing a situation of the artist who courageously set up their prices on very decent prices (in meaning: no more 50 bucks full color image of yer characters! but almost 200$ one for her really nice character painting) where I felt so proud of her for being brave to set up the real price of the art. But I was also a witness of bunch of complaining people (mostly I noticed they were young) screaming that her art is not worth for shitload bucks.Say NO to the Internet Prices4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I really wanted to slap faces of these people.
Really, who decide that someone's art is worth that price?
You do not decide how much wort is my art - as my work.
You do not know how much effort I've put into a piece, countless hours, stress, time, including also a years of practice and studies, frustration as well personal finances into the art materials.
Do you think my art is a fun hobby?
You do not decide if my art is a form of fun and what are real feelings with the artist while working on artwork as part of paid job.
