Collaborative Doll ContestEdit: About 30 hours to go until the contest closes!Collaborative Doll Contest4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The theme is collaboration itself. In groups of 2-4, create one doll and submit it to the contest. I want to see the talents of everyone involved shine through So the doll itself can be of anything, as long as it is a digital doll.
Groups must have at least 2 people and no more than 4 (not including the base maker if an adopted base is chosen)
One doll is all that is required per group; if you have multiple dolls in the submission, each group member must have done something on each doll (the hair or line art or something)
No frankendolling/frankenbasing (taking parts of other people's work and cutting and pasting it together)
The doll must be submitted after 3PM February 14th Est

NEW: Ultra Magnus (17 screenshots, not many since there was WAY TOO MUCH MOTION BLUR EVERYWHERE!)
I know Prime characters are difficult to draw due to their massive amount of details ect. ect. and Youtube quality is more or less very pixelated depending on who has uploaded episodes. So here's a bunch of screenshots for you to use as references. Only thing I ask is that don't share links directly to the images on photobucket, share this journal entry instead

On the Subject of BasesFellow People of Deviantart,On the Subject of Bases4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I am here today to talk to you about Bases and Dolling.
I am not asking you to do it, or even to like it, but just to put out a standpoint that is sorely missing from this ongoing row over what a Base really is.
You may think a base is a large traced piece from anime with no skill and that the people who draw on top of them are lazy artists who just don't want to learn how to draw. Some bases are traced, but not every base.
Dolling is a hobby, something that is done for fun, and not every doller out there wants to be able to draw like a whiz kid. A lot of people hold down jobs, or full time education and just want a little fun. And so they are able to use a base that they like and draw some clothes and hair onto it, often very skillfully.

Cardians: Abroad [OPEN]Howdy, everyone! It’s calanii , a GM from Texas Takedown division as well as a West Coast player. Due to the nature of the schedule of our Texas campaign, I’m starting up another Cardian division for even more Cardians to join. This division, however, is a little different.Cardians: Abroad [OPEN]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
With our home base in Hawaii, this division of Cardians is a quick response team that is actually almost 100% mobile (much like the Texas team). Except, instead of moving around one area, Cardians: Abroad division accepts missions from all over the world. This also leaves opportunities for coastal team-up missions between the Cardians Abroad and other coasts (all dependant upon scheduling etc.) as we will be traveling to all corners of the world.
Due to the possibility of coastal team-ups as well as the fact that there will only be 1 GM for this division, I am accepting 5-6 players at this time. If you’ve already sent in a Cardian application but now want to express

The Rogues is finishedIt's finally over, 4+ years, 5 revisions and 394 pages later (not even including extras), The Rogues is done. I invested so much time and energy in this project, working on it in all the different places I've been to, and learning all these little things I could incorporate into it. Now I no longer have to stay up until 4 or 5 in the morning drawing through tears of frustration, or putting things aside I'd rather be doing for the sake of stubbornly finishing this. I have the freedom to experiment with completely different, more flexible styles and schedules, since I'm not restrained to a time limit anymore.

Hmm... interesting... this could approve BolinxEska theory... xD. But, i just cant ship Bolin and Eska because... you know, Bolin is all energetic-goofy-GORGEOUS and Eska seems like the "Mai" of Legend of Korra.
Who knows, maybe a nice girl is behind that "androgynous creepiness"
And another interesting this to note is the background. I does not look like the south pole to me, it's more like they where in republic city. But both of them are wearing that big winter coats; it looks like the South pole has had a lot of reconstruction in the last 70 years...
What do you think about this?

Original Species ranty junkIf you don't like rants, don't bother reading please.Original Species ranty junk1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Lets talk original species.
First lets start with conversation by looking at actual species.
The one on the top is a cuttlefish and the one on the bottom is an octopus.
Both are within the same kingdon, phylum, and class. (Animalia, Mollusca, Cephalopoda) but the sub-order is different, making them seperate species.
Both the octopus and the cuttlefish change color based on environment, can squirt ink, have tentacles, have a hard beak, a mantle, two eyes, 'feeding' arms, and 8 arms. The only real differences are that cuttlefish have an internal cuttlebone, have the little fin around their mantle, they breed differently, and are smaller in size (I'm sure there are more I just don't feel like hunting for them >w< )
So then why is it that species that look canine seemed to get bashed with being unoriginal?
Lets say I wanted Virus's species to be my own original species? (I'm not posting a picture because she's right t

Hyping It Up Before It Exists
A lot of people will put up promotional artwork, covers, character references, and other related work for their comic before putting up a single page. People often say if you want to write a book or you want to lose weight, it's best that you not tell anyone. When you tell someone you plan on doing something, they will praise you for it. The problem is, you are now receiving praise for something you haven't actually done yet. You don't have to work for that praise; the mere act of saying you will do something rewards you the same external way you would get for actually doing it. Sadly the result is many people are content to stop there. It's not even a conscious decision, but a lot of people will get caught up in the hype without realizing how hard making a comic actually is. Hold off putting up anything related to your comic until you at least have a few pages up; it wil

Dear DeviantArtDear DeviantArt,Dear DeviantArt6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
DeviantArt is my favorite website of all where I can spend 10 to 30 hours a week. It’s the place where I can meet other artists and where I can get help, find tutorials and resources and feature other people. This is by far the easiest site to use lately. You don’t have to answer 50 questions or create your own thumbnail to submit art. You can check your friend’s art without scrolling endlessly through pages and pages of everything; kitchen sink included.
I like good changes. They are un-boring. I am always eager to see the next step. You did great things in the past, and others not in my liking. It’s normal, we cannot please everyone. I still miss the page footer. But every time you announce a change, I’m anxious about losing an important tool for my daily activities here. I’m afraid DeviantArt will become like other websites I lost interest in. I’m worried to lose something I love so much.

I finally heard back from the Sergeant in Vancouver today. We have great news. Despite BlueFlame105's comment that he "stopped" the thief (SC), it actually was not him. It was the police.
SC was interviewed at his home by the Cyber-Crimes Division the day before yesterday. He does indeed have Autism, and does not gauge when he crosses the line. He has no real contact to peers, except online, but then gets carried away and cannot understand why people are upset. While this certainly explains behavior, it does not make it ok
