The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally handed out on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.
I miss the old symbols but...I've been a member of this community for more than 8 years, I'm certainly not the oldest member here, but I think we all can agree 8 internet years are like a short eternity, it's a lot of time and just to prove it, tell me; how many sites have you been a member of for at least 8 years? I can only name one, and that's deviantArt. Also, 8 years are the 61% of the 13 years this site as been alive, so I've been here for more than half of this site's life.I miss the old symbols but...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As an old member of this site, I, like a lot of you, also miss the old symbols.
As stated on the official article, there are a few things that have been part of the site for a long time, without which deviantArt wouldn't feel like deviantArt, like the characteristic green layout or the user symbols that until recently, were part of the site.
I agree it does feel weird, the symbols I grew up with, so to speak, as an artist, are

SilverPixiGirl You roxor! Don't ever forget that.
I have been welcomed into the DA community with great kindness and it is nice to see how people help out one another here.
cality is an awesome deviant, writer, and friend, and I'm very glad I stumbled over one of her poems and decided to comment, otherwise we'd never have started talking^^
PizzaPotatoNBacon is one of the sweetest and most inspiring deviants I know. Not only does she have an absolutely fantastic sense of humor that never fails to bring a smile to my face, but she also smells like freshly baked pizza.
TsukiDeath13 is a good friend and is just plain awesome! ^-^
DragonA7X is one of my closest friends although I do not know them in the real world they are considered to be a good friend I met them during my first months on deviantart

DeviantART Compliments #25CuddlesAndHuggles Is kind to everyone and is a real pleasure to talk to! Her art displays real emotion and her mini comics are a real pleasure to read. Give her love!DeviantART Compliments #251 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This compliment is for star-sprout! <3 She's so nice and amazing, I love to talk with her and she's one of my best friends! I'm so glad to have met her!
One of the greatest artists I've ever met on deviantART is Juledrops. Her art is simply amazing, and she is very friendly! Definitely one of my favorite artists, and the person who got me into Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL. Thank you, Juledrops.
Next is one of the coolest people on the planet, Piebreon I've known her since I was in Kindergarten. Her art is super special awesome, and her animals are so much better than mine! If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't even be here on deviantART. Heck, I'd probably be a whole ‘nother person! Thank you, man!
And last, but certainly not least, is Aosuka She's a wonderful artist, and one of the main reasons

When I opened my Message-Center this morning, I got a notice telling me, that today it is exactly 6 month since I joined deviant art. Of course this is my first anniversary I am celebrating. So I am going to do a little roundup with what has been moving me here on da in this time.
Thank you all for your constant support, your care and the incredible response I got within this time! I don't think there would be a similar platform anywhere on the net

Mario Kart 8So, my friends and I got it this weekend. I literally did nothing else these past 2 days, just play, eat and sleep. In that order.Mario Kart 87 months ago in Software Reviews More Like This
Playing Mario Kart with friends is always tons of fun...
But when one of these "supposed friends" hits you with an item:
But of course, when YOU are the one throwing items at your friends you're like
Then your friend keeps throwing items at you and you're like
But then retribution time always inevitably comes and you have your revenge
You're playing Grand Prix and the first race didn't go very well, but you think "Alright, time to get serious!"
You're on the final part of the 3rd lap and you're in 1st place! But then you hear a blue shell approaching.
You throw a red shell to a racer in front of you, and it hits a damn banana peel!

I figured it out from black and white.
Seconds and hours.
Maybe they had to take some time.
I know how it goes from wrong and right.
Silence and sound.
Did they ever hold each other tight
Did they ever fight
We can make it 'til the end.
Nothing can come between
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us.
I figured it out.
Saw the mistakes of up and down.
Meet in the middle.
There's always room for common ground.

Moving on... CONTEST! WOO!That last journal was a doozie wasn't it? Let's do something fun instead and get our minds out of the muddy waters of art definitions for a minute.Moving on... CONTEST! WOO!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked to do a mini drawing competition. Kinda like what :iconhumon: just did. So here's a really basic run down of the rules in no way copied and pasted from her journal with minor alterations: j/k
The Drawing Competition:
1. Draw any of TomPreston's characters (SYAC, Alex Ze Pirate, or any smaller groups) in London.
2. Upload the image to your dA gallery.
3. Comment on this journal (or the main Fresh Epics comment box) with a link to your image.
- I'll then +Fav/add to collection it.
- I'll look though the collection and pick the winners.
Winners will get Alex Ze Pirate book 2 and SYAC Book 1, plus posters! YAY!
It should go without saying but parodies, trolling, hate art, or explicit sexual stuff = instant disqualifying. I mean, that should be a given but it needs to be said I suppose.
Deadline: A week from today: May 16th.
Updates for April 1stLooks like my April Fools joke went over pretty well. I was quite surprised to see the response, honestly! Was it the most original prank in the books? Absolutely not, but considering that I usually ignore April Fools Day and that people STILL believed it, I think it's alright. Sometimes the oldest jokes are the best and it's not like this was a contest trying to outdo everyone around me. Just having some fun for a change, which is something I need to do more often.Updates for April 1st3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, it shows how many people actually followed the link. Anyone who read the journal and followed the link to the trolololo song would've known it was a joke. But it seems a LOT of people didn't bother doing that, hehe.
Speaking of April Fools though, did you know that it was 4 years ago today that I began the Alex Ze Pirate web series? April 1st, 2008 was the day I began posting short one page gags involving my pirate characters on SheezyArt. It's kinda hard to believe it's only been 4 years as so much has happened since

Mini ReviewsLately there've been a number of TV shows and other nerdy things I've been meaning to get into but just haven't had the time.

Game of Thrones
I've been hearing so much about this series and how amazing it is. I know that the actor Peter Dinklage has received a number of awards for his performance. I also know that HBO tends to do really good series from time to time. So I had expectations that this was also going to be good.
First 5 minutes. Yeah it was good. Everything after that? Eehh...
Granted now, I've only seen the first episode, but honestly the first episode should really HOOK you into the series. Start off with a bang to get you psyched then spend the rest of the series building up the characters and making us care about them, ending with a great climax mak

We have only known each other for 6 weeks, and I have already come to kind of adore you. But there are certain things I've yet to understand.
You don't seem to respect any boundaries. I know you're a baby and all, but how many times will you run out into the living room, amongst company, chewing on my underwear? How do you even get my underwear? Why is it so fascinating to you? D: :iconstunplz:
I tried to follow what the other dog owners said to train you to sleep in your little crate. But you screamed and carried on like I was sawing your leg off, all night. This is an apartment building, and I have neighbours to think about, and I think you know that. I even tried to sleep on the floor in front of your crate, where you could easily see me, but that ONE barrier (the door on your crate), seemed to drive you mental. Like that thin piece of plastic was a stone wall 4 metres thick . Or like the Wall in Game of Thrones. :ico

I got to meet a lot of fans from DA, and one group in particular (dressed as homestuck trolls no less) even gave me a tiny fluttershy figurine! That was really cute, thank you!
I had a lot of sketch cards on Saturday, ending with me running out of paper. When I came back on Sunday I brought extra just in case, but found I didn't need it. Sunday was pretty dead and while I got a few orders early in the day, I didn't sell more than that.
Pretty cool that this year they had the ECTO1 from Ghostbusters there. In the past they've always had the Batman mobiles or the Delorean from Back to the Future, so being able to see the ECTO1 was a nice change of pace.
I talked with a guy for almost 2 hours on animation history and Disney, which was a lot of fun. I also go to give some advice on how to get rid of those "artifacts" th
