PE: How to Make a Large EmoticonHow to Make a Large EmoticonPE: How to Make a Large Emoticon2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have been asked many times how I make my big emoticons. How I shade it, dither it, etc, so I am going to make a step by step tutorial on how I make large emoticons. Even if you already know how to, you might find something useful in this. Be aware that I am using photoshop elements 3.0, so this technique can be preformed in almost any program that has layers and custom pencil brush sizes and or a hollow and filled circle tool. If your program doesn't have layers or adjustable circles of any kind (whether it be the pencil tool or the circle tool), you should be able to get around it somehow, but if you can't figure it out, I would recommend gimp. It works on Macs, Windows, or Linux computers. You can get a free download at gimp.org.
Start by making a hollow circle. The color of it should be a really dark shade of the color you want the emote to be. I'm making a blue emote, so

MMD Rules Revised. Please ReadLately there's been confusion over the readme notes on models that come with both an English & Japanese version having different rules/conditions in them.MMD Rules Revised. Please Read2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You're probably thinking it's not fair that the Japanese version has more freedom with editing models than the English one. Then there's this assumption that Japanese modellers are racist. This is not the case. It is merely a misunderstanding and I'll explain it here.
When overseas users break the MMD rules it's hard for the Japanese modellers to handle it because there is a language barrier. It's very difficult for a modeller to talk to the culprit when they both come from a different culture. It's a huge burden for them to go through a language obstacle just to reason with someone who can't speak the same language as them, let alone try to resolve a situation where rules have been violated. On the other hand, when the culprit and modeller are both Japanese, it's easy to resolve because both people are from the same culture so there
Information from rocoHello, I am roco.Information from roco2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Do you understand the reason why I set Japanese password?
It came from my fear that unexpected happenings can occur in oversea communities unlike in Japan.
For example, in oversea communities, my models can be edited to zombies, killed, and redistributed.
Needless to say, each of above-mentioned behavior is enough to my anger.
Still now, I cannot see an improvement of this situation, even though NononoP kindly conveyed my message to you. http://nononop.deviantart.com/journal/the-message-from-roco-319791387
I set Japanese password, but I do not intend at all to discriminate against non-Japanese users.
I know what happened in oversea communities until now. It is horrible. Just for example.. http://q-ku-mmd.deviantart.com/journal/No-kidding-323908895 http://fuwarimofumofu.deviantart.com/journal/jirai-tasinamu-teido-niha-318303828

Ripping models from PJD games.Hey everyone.Ripping models from PJD games.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So,I noticed that some people are ripping from Music Girl,Dreamy Theater,etc.But they act like that's a super secret...and they don't even credit the people who made the script.
For example ... Music girl's script you can find on Xentax Forum. ( http://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=9541 ) A lot of scripts you guys can find on that forum,but it's too bad that you don't credit the ones who made the scripts.
I think when you say "I ripped it" doesn't mean that you "ripped it completely" , you know?You just took a random script(you didn't made it) ,used it on 3DSMax/whatever and...that's it.And I've used to do that too
yeah,I don't "rip" models anymore because i'm too lazy to do thatThen guys...stop saying "HURRRRRR IMAH FAKIN AMAZING DOOD I RIPPED DIZ MODEL BUT I WONT TELL U HOW TO RIP IT CUZ IM VERY BADASS ONLY MY V.I.P FRIENDS CAN GET IT".In fact,everyone can rip a model if you use Google.Plus , you're not a genius just because you googled for "Musi

Bye bye, Popularity! - Due to Fair Exposure 2.0 ?Last year I wasn't active on DA for a few months. When I started to submit art again I realized that my work didn't get the attention anymore that it used to get. I thought, well, you deserted your online family so they probably lost interest in your art. Deal with it!Bye bye, Popularity! - Due to Fair Exposure 2.0 ?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But I suspect there is something else happening around here. I became aware of the fact that the DA popular ranking system must have changed somehow.
A lot of Traditional Art, naked butts and breasts, Artisan Crafts and mediocre misc. stuff with many views but little favourites rank high in the popular lists of the last hours and days
pictures from popular artists with many favs and views fall back in the listsa lot less manga and anime stuff than usual appears
The All Time Popular list is totally rearranged, now the pieces are almost in order of the number of their favsWhat do you think of that? Aspiring artists with great skills seem to have smaller chances to be wide

READ THIS RANT. LIKE RIGHT NOW."If Saboten/Nanami/etc don't want you to edit their models, then why do it? Yes, I know a lot of people would like it if Saboten allowed us to edit their models ( I'd like that ), but you have to respect modeler's rules. Think about it. A lot of work goes into models. You can't just conjure them up out of thin air. It takes work, and time. And does ( the majority of ) the MMDC care? No. We just take someone else's hard work, rip it to shreds and take parts from it. And then people are like, "Buuuut it's their fault, they distributed it!" Well, if you want them to stop distributing their models, go ahead! Get Saboten and a load of other brilliant modelers to stop distributing! Let's just make everything like it was a while ago when Nanami stopped distributing, huh?READ THIS RANT. LIKE RIGHT NOW.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As for Nanami, even after what everyone did, she gave us all another chance. She put up the models again. Think about that. That was really nice of her to do. She didn't have to do that, but she did. But, not every modeler
MMD is artThis has been weighing on my mind for a little while. I see time and time again, people (non MMDers obviously) who bash others who use MMD saying that it is not art and it is "illegal" because it uses someone else's work.MMD is art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First I would like to address the incorrect notion that it is illegal:
The modelers give the users permission to use their model by making it available for public download. Therefore, it is indeed legal as long as credit is given where credit is due and the terms and conditions of usage are being properly followed.
Secondly, MMD (MikuMikuDance for those of you who aren't familiar with the term, is a 3D posing and rendering freeware that involves usage of 3D models) is art. People put their time and energy into creating beautiful pictures and videos using MMD.
I myself have spent a whole day on one video just making sure that it was perfect and I know others who have done the same as I have. Also, art is a form of expression. MMD is a program that people use to express
