10 Simple Tips for Getting Your Art Accepted QUICKIt's troublesome for all of us when we have to ask you questions and, require you to withdraw and resubmit your deviation for one reason or another. Well, this document is designed to help prevent that so we can all have a nicer day!10 Simple Tips for Getting Your Art Accepted QUICK2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. All Members:
- When you upload your art to dA, select the proper category. ex. When a member submits a drawing to our Digital Art folder, but we see that it's in dA's Traditional Art category, we will ALWAYS question that.
2. Digital and Traditional Artists:
- List the media/tools/programs and reference image links you used to create your art in your description. This is a practice of Pros, and it helps us to ascertain that your art is submitted to the proper folder.
- If your art is a photograph, and you did any editing besides tweaking, or BW/Sepia conversion then we will probably consider it a photo-manipulation. This includes selective de-coloration. Submit it to our Digital Art folder.

My Journey to Publishing a Manga in Japan - Part1My Journey to Publishing a Manga in Japan - Part110 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am an italian student currently studying and working in Japan. In the middle of the studying and working I am also trying to publish a manga. I wasn't able to do it yet but I learned so much by trying that I thought I would share what I know with others that have the same dream. And maybe those people might give me advice as well or talk about their own experience with Japanese Publishers.
So first of all, when did I decide that I wanted to publish a manga? When it became clear to me that I could actually do it .
I used to read manga when I was younger but it never occurred to me to dream of publishing one because I couldn't really draw, I wasn't in Japan, I didn't speak Japanese and I had no idea how the all publishing a manga thing worked.
Years later I decided to move to Japan not to publish manga but to learn Japanese (I studied languages in Italy but my University didn't offer any Japanese language
MCR Thank You ProjectI started a Thank You project for MCR. I have had many people already contribute to it and I have even had support from Cassie The Venomous (also known as Poison and Fire) from AltPress. All I need for this project is a picture of you holding a sign that reads 'thank you' (in what ever language you want!) with you name and country also on the paper. That's it! I'll put all of these photos to the song 'The World is Ugly' and post it on Youtube.MCR Thank You Project1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'll then put the video on a DVD and send it to Gerard via his fan mail address. Gerard said that he would read EVERY LETTER we send. So if I send a letter with the DVD, he'll read the letter and [hopefully] watch the video. Sound like a plan? Okay then!
You can email the pictures to me at RareMCRmusic@gmail.com.

Also, Mikey has apparently agreed to play bass on James Dewees's new album. James's blog is linked here: http://mikeyway-daily.livejournal.com/503978.html But I can't verify it, because only his backers can read it. Are there any Kickstarter backers here who can read his blog and tell me if that's true or not? (I doubt the girl is lying, but it'd be nice to have some proof.)
Thanks to the people who took the survery (especially the two who wrote lengthy responses. Very helpful.) Some of you mentioned that you want to see writing prompts.

Losing interest..?So I don't know what the deal has been lately but I just feel done with the whole furry fandom thing. Ever since Anthrocon ended I just feel completely burnt out on it...it's almost like I beat it. 0_0 Anthrocon was the big furcon that i've always wanted to attend eventually and I finally did, and on top of that I happened to win the dance comp. I had a wonderful time, without a doubt, but i've just had the strangest feeling after I left that place. I don't want to put on fursuits, I don't want to make fursuit videos, I don't really want to make fursuits at the moment, I just feel....done. I'm not a furry, and I never really have been, i'm just an artist who got caught up in the costumes and was sucked into the fandom it encompasses. I don't want to deal with the fandom, because I. Don't. Care. I don't care who said what, I don't care who's 'spirit animal' is who, I don't care what your problem is with that furry, i'm just an art student. That's it.

Cosplay Reference LibraryHello Everyone!Cosplay Reference Library10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Last year I started a website called Cosplay Reference Library. http://cosplayreferencelibrary.wordpress.com/
"This site was made to be used as a universal tool/place for all the cosplayers in the world to find pictures for their cosplay. One place to find pictures so cosplayers don't have to waste hours searching and can spend more time making their cosplays and being apart of the cosplay community.
Any references and referencing sites are always appreciated along with tutorial links. If you know any artists or cosplayers who make a lot of tutorials or referencing sheets please tell us. We are searching for artists who might be able to fill the gap on some proper character drawings. Free, by request or not, character design break downs is VERY appreciated.
If you like the website, please tell us, please comment. Please tell us that this stuff is helpful for you, or if there is more you want. We'll do our best to find what you need and add it to the site

MCR Poster ContestI think movie posters are an underappreciated art. It's not true that they have no emotion: the best posters are clever, artistic, and so eye-catching that you just can't wait for the film. For this contest, you have two options:MCR Poster Contest1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1. Create a poster for an MCR movie. This can be a biographical movie about the band, or a film about one of the album's storylines (Revenge, Killjoys, etc.) You could also take a song or lyric and create a film poster around it, as artists on Tumblr have done in the past.
2. Create a propaganda poster for Better Living or the Killjoys. Someone mentioned this in the survey, and I've thought about making it a seperate contest before, but I decided to make it an option here instead. Imagine that BL/ind or the Killjoys tried to recruit people or sway them to follow their beliefs. What would their posters look like?
Some examples of movie posters:

Animation Story #6: Breaking into Disney, pt2This is the second part of my "Breaking into Disney" story. This story came about because of all the questions I get asked concerning "how do I get into Disney"? Hopefully, this story will answer some of those questions, but it's a different situation/story for everyone. That's the point. No two portfolios are the same (well, if you read pt.1, then I guess they are sometimes) and no two people are the same (well, you know, unless you are a twin, like me...oh dang.). So, to recap: about 10 people had just been selected from Cal Arts (myself and my brother being two of them) to join an even bigger group of interns for a 9 week training program/internship at Disney Animation in CA.......Animation Story #6: Breaking into Disney, pt24 years ago in Personal More Like This

Shane and Joey.Today was Shane's birthday. Joey was going to surprise Shane with a gift. Joey had gotten him flowers and a card. He drove to Shane's house and parked his car in his driveway. He sat back in his seat and stared off to Shane's house. He thought about the reactions that Shane would have when he received his presents. Joey's thoughts raced through his head. He was thinking about his feeling for Shane. He sighed and exited the car. Shane looked out the window to see Joey outside. He stood on the porch and before he could knock, Shane flung open the door and Joey was engulfed in an enormous hug.Shane and Joey.1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Rythian is not an Enderman Theory (edited)Wrote this over on Tumblr, decided to share here too cause I really like this theory.Rythian is not an Enderman Theory (edited)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Rythian is not an Enderman, half Enderman, Enderhuman, or anything Enderman related. He is a mage.
Rythian was actually a member of a Group of Technomancers, tasked with keeping the End separated from the normal world by using a mastered form of magic and science. More importantly, they were trying to keep the Enderdragon locked away in the End.
Sometime before the events in the 'Old world', an accident happened with the Science used by the Group. Many Technomancers were injured or killed from this accident, an event that pushed Rythian away from Science altogether. After the Accident the Group disbanded, confident that the spells they had in place were strong enough to keep the Enderdragon locked away for good, and the remaining Technomancers went their own ways.
At this point Rythian found himself in the 'Old World' where he first met Zoey and the others, until Duncan and Sjin blew everything up. Th
