Sta.sh: deviantART's Enhanced Publishing PlatformSta.sh is deviantART's new upload and publishing platform -- home to all of your images, writings, Flash/animations, and everything in between. Once you've uploaded something via Sta.sh, you'll be provided a special URL. This URL is known only to you and can be shared with others before officially publishing the work to deviantART. But that's not all! While this version of Sta.sh is fully functioning, it will soon also allow the ability publish to other major platforms on the Web in addition to deviantART.Sta.sh: deviantART's Enhanced Publishing Platform3 years ago in Personal More Like This
How does it work?
Drag and drop as many files as you'd like into your Sta.sh (up to 2 GB), or use the "Upload Files" button. Sta.sh offers faster uploads than ever before. Submissions will stay in your Sta.sh, and not appear in your deviantART Gallery or to your Watchers, until you say so.
Each item in your Sta.sh has a unique UR

So.. about this Ry X fellaHave you ever felt like someone is trying to steal your identity? Well, I always knew there's another Ry out there. I always try to ignore him and hope that one day he will simply disappear making me the only Ry on earth, there's only room for one Ry and I would very much like it to be me. I am of course talking about my arch nemesis, the Ry-Spirit imposter, Ry X (Also known as Ry Cuming).So.. about this Ry X fella1 year ago in Personal More Like This

All commissions are for your personal use only. You are free to repost them as long as you credit me. You can color, or hire some to color, your commission as long as, if posted somewhere, the description makes it clear who did what (also please tell me, I'd like to see it!).
In general, I will draw anything I could post on DA without a mature content tag. Mature content will be judged case by case. I reserve the right to refuse a request.
If you cancel for any reason, you will get a partial refund based on the amount of work done. If I cancel myself, I will refund in full regardless of progress.
I can show you a basic sketch before finalizing if you ask for it; small changes can only be made at this stage unless it's a mistake on my part.
Once I am done, I will upload a web sized version to the picture to DA and FA. I will give you a
Re:Rampant art 'theft' by Korean Drama siteHey guys, I've been seeing a lot of outrage over a particular website* which appears to be a type of blog about Korean drama shows, but if you type your name in the search bar, your art from here on dA is displayed. A lot of people are angry that their art is being reposted, and I'll address that in a moment, but more importantly, I must warn that you SHOULD NOT ACTUALLY VISIT THE WEBSITE, because it is supposedly loaded with viruses and malware. Plus, typing your user name in the search bar also seems to be the trigger that CAUSES your art to be reposted.

Best way to record yourself drawing digitallyUpdate: Added section about CONVERTING video sessions below.Best way to record yourself drawing digitally4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Quick bit of help here, because I'm not sure if everyone knows the best way to handle this if you want to record your progress while drawing in Photoshop, Manga Studio, Painter, whatever.
IF YOU ARE USING WINDOWSYou may have tried some of the screen recorders out there like CamStudio, FRAPS, or some free ones out there. You may have noticed, or had become frustrated with, the fact that many of these programs cause a significantly huge hit on your system's performance. When you try drawing in Photoshop, your tablet response comes to a screeching halt. Then you find a program that records without impacting your drawing performance -- only to find that the resulting video recorded at about 1 frame every 3 seconds. Then you tried FRAPS, then found out that 4 minutes of video resulted in a 3.2GB file. All of these are less than ideal.
A while back, I searched all over the net for a program that encoded video from my screen

UPDATE 4/2/2011 ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
THIS MAY NOT APPLY TO ALL TABLET PC OWNERS, BUT IT IS AN OBSERVABLE IMPROVEMENT ON MY X201T!
The old advice I gave about Fujitsu drivers being better for your Tablet PC may no longer be valid. First off, Fujitsu has removed the drivers previously linked from their support site. Second, because I gave Wacom's Tablet PC drivers, (called "ISD" drivers,) a second shot. These offer notably more accurate pen calibration and better balance between Windows Tablet PC support and Creative Art software such as Photoshop.

What the ISD driver does is provide pressure sensitivity support for art software such as Photoshop, Painter, Sketchbook Pro,
Why University of California, Berkeley?A new school year begins at my university and I've been getting a ton of notes asking about why I decided to go there (instead of an art college), or is the art program there any good. Hopefully this journal will satisfy your curiosity and help you decide which college you want to go to.Why University of California, Berkeley?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
But first I would like to make an announcement to my fellow UCB art majors that my friends and I will be teaching a group study class on Digital Painting/Webcomics so if anyone is interested in signing up for the course e-mail the founder, Patrick, at email@example.com (we don't have a Course Control Number yet but we will).
On to the questions~~~
What's the art department like at UCB?
Since UCB is most famous for its science programs (where all the budget goes), the art programs are not the most amazing, but they are pretty good depending on what kind of art you're into. Berkeley has an intellectual yet liberal atmosphere so we try to look at all forms of art from various perspectives.
Glamour porn? Sorry guys, but this time I am very upset.Glamour porn?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm a member since ten years and in the past we had a first site with many creative works and awesome artists!
Now I can see just vagina and breast shots with a very bad quality and I guess that's a huge problem!
And that's also a problem from every other art platform in the internet!
When I upload a "glamour portrait" my work is in the middle of "spread your legs open" works and I am very sad when I see the quality.
I love Deviantart and know this site since the first day (from my beloved friend).
I use this site as board for my own works, for other artists and people.
I struggle with myself if I really want to publish my works on this platform any longer.
(No worries, I wouldn't leave, I would create a new private account or use my writer account, cause I have so many great friends here).
It would be a pity but as a model you always have to confront yourself with all the differen

Seriously, it's not a secret that I hate Toei and that they could do some things BETTER
(Specially because they've proven that they are able to make very nice regular episodes, no fillers or special episode of [...] ).
I'm not ranting about the anime since it's a thing we all somehow had stopped caring about.
I'm sure it's really hard to create an anime so I won't complain much about it ~
What really piss me of is the 15th Anniversary Outfit for Hancock:

I WON! OFF TO CHICAGO ACENOH MY LLAMA. The last few days has been an emotional rollercoaster ryde for me. OK for those who don't know I joined an art competition for a convention in Chicago called Anime Central, the winner gets to have an artist table and a guarenteed spot (I heard from purplekecleon that getting a table in America is much much much more stresseful, like for one of the convention, the registration opened up for 38 seconds before booked out. YES its crazy like that). Its always been my dream to go to an American Convention, I have never sold artworks outside of Australia (Well except for NewZealand but thats like not far away). So I thought I would try my luck, unfortunately its one of those contest that requires the public's voting... and usually that becomes a popularity contest. AND I KNOW FOR SURE theres always someone with more friends/fans/relatives, its just the way things are. Whether this contest is fair or not is debatable.

"If beef is your idea of real food for real people, you'd better live real close to a real good hospital."
Neal D. Barnard
"Never believe that animals suffer less than humans. Pain is the same for them that it is for us. Even worse, because they cannot help themselves."
Dr. Louis J Camuti
"We don't need to eat anyone who would run, swim, or fly away if he could."
"Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet."
"Animal rights is the most unextreme philosophy I can imagine. It is about nonviolence. It is about compassion. It is about not harming and not causing suffering and not killing when we do
Script for deviantART that gives 'extra badge'This is an old Stylish script for deviantART that probably many people already knows:Script for deviantART that gives 'extra badge'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Is there a badge that you have always dreamed of but you can never get? Has someone designed a new badge that you would like to use (like a Pink Glitter Llama)?
There is one way to get that badge - but it is only visible at your own page and other deviantART users don't see it:
ginkgografix made in 2010 a script for Stylish that adds extra 'badge' to your collection. Stylish is a browser add-on for Firefox and Chrome.
If you have Stylish installed to your browser then read these instructions and add a new Stylish script:

Symbol(s) for the non Premium DeviantsHello my Ryceballs. So eversince DA's recent symbol changes, I have been hearing a lot of complaints. Mostly about how regular non premium members don't even get a symbol. It makes them feel like they are not important. Its ok I hear ya I hear ya. And you know me, I am all about the people. Ry-Spirit cares. So I thought about this a lot and try to think of an appropriate symbol that best suits our non premium friends, at the end I came up with a symbol... WELL I say a symbol but its more like a string of symbols. I feel like this is the only option for it to work. And I have used myself as an example of what the symbols would look like if I am in fact a regular deviant. Ok please look below.Symbol(s) for the non Premium Deviants1 year ago in Personal More Like This
