Unfortunately I think only you U.S Rangers can see it, but check your local Listings if you're outside the US of A and see if you get MTV cause they sometimes play re-runs.
This was also Featured a while back but thought those of you that didn't get to see it might like to. MTV's show "MADE" tries to teach kids to step out of their element, this one features an Anime Fan and Ranger. Vic shows up as a surprise guest in the second half. ^^
If any of you know of another source let me know. XD

I am back from my vacation - the best part was, that after years and years of begging and after MANY canceled trips, I finally visited Bosnia and Hercegovina!!!!!
I have a soft spot for this country, especially for its recent history and for the mixture of cultures.
I refused to believe the trip and I did not allow myself to be happy, until we REALLY crossed the boundary - then I got SO excited!!!!
It is just fantastic to travel through Bosnia and to see mosques in vilages you go through
Islam culture is very interesting, I especially love the architecture and art.
We went to Mostar.
I had to say that I wanted to get to this city for years just soon after the war, as I really hoped to visit it before the boom of tourism. We were too late, the tourists have already discovered the city, so there were crowds of people. But it does not matter, it was still beautiful.
And so cheap! They offer some home-made original stuff for tourists and delicious food for encredibly lo

On DeviantArt Wishing To 'Own' .ARTHonestly, in my opinion, having DeviantArt (and Angelo (spyed) by proxy - or any individual, entity, company, etc) controlling ".ART" would be like having The Church of Scientology, The Church of Jesus Christ, The Vatican, Mitt Romney, Obama, Walt Disney, Adolf Hitler, or any other specific individual, entity, company, etc controlling ".GOD".

Besides the panels listed bellow, I will also be at the 4th Dimension Entertainment booth # 5536 in the IP Pavillion from time to time to sign Knite posters
The first one is on Thursday, July 12th from 3 - 4 PM called "Living and creating in the deviantART world" and it will be a semi tutorial styled panel answering many of the common questions that people have asked me such as how to get started, where to find inspirations, and how make new discoveries. I will also be doing a Q&A at the end
Right afterwards from 4 - 5 PM on the same day is the "Don't break in, break out!" panel about the new world of publishing with the advent of social media such as dA. This panel will feature seasoned professionals like DeevElliott and MrBabyTattoo as well as newbies to publishing like myself, not to mention our favorite

Few words about art-thieves.Hi!Few words about art-thieves.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My dear watchers, I really appreciate your support when it comes to fight against art-thieves.
But I bet there are also many people whose thoughs can be interpretted like "why is she so hysterical about it?". Some people say, that the fact, that some photo is worth stealing, is a kind of compliment.
Ok, so let me present my point.
At first: why am I so unhappy about reposting of photos?
Because, pals, if somebody just reposts a photo without any change, it just gives totally open space to other people who would find the photos on his/her blog, taking it and posting it themselves. And because the first person did not credit the original author, they also do not credit the creator. The more people do that, the more times the photo is reposted. Always without credit. Sooner or later, it becomes a kind of "public" property and original author has almost no chance to effect this situation.
Do you know this photo? Honestly, EVERYBODY knows it. But do you know original author? Do you
God tortures little dogJasper is a 10 year old dachshund, whose fate - in accordance with God's Divine Plan - included having paralyzed hind legs.

But alas, thanks to a clinical trial which involves a transplant of olfactory ensheathing cells by atheist scientists who believe in evolution, the dog has made rapid progress and is now able to walk! Click the link for video of "before" and "after".

A Short Guide to Help You Publish ProfessionallyI don't know everything, so you might also want to check out this group: :iconpublish-write: for more information.A Short Guide to Help You Publish Professionally3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so you are a writer and you want to publish your story: it's a great one, everyone who's seen it loves it; you're sure any editor who reads it will want to publish it, so you set out to get your story published.
Well, it's a little easier said than done: getting published professionally takes a lot of time and a lot of work.
Why? Simply because there are so many writers out there who all want to publish their work; most publishing houses have what is called a 'slush pile' which is all the submissions they receive from unknown writers.
STAY OUT OF THE SLUSH PILE, IF YOU CAN
If you have a family member or a friend who works in a publishing house, ask their help; ask all your friends and family members if they know anyone who works in a publishing house; having a person you can talk to as a person and not as one more faceless submitter increases your chances immeasurabl

A POM episode called "Lunacorn Apocalypse": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_Czf7CsQUs&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igfK3w_uVO4&feature=channel&list=UL
This POM special was just parodying the insane MLP:FiM takeover of the Internet and the world, but yet I find it disturbingly relevant to real life.
Lunacorn Show = MLP:Friendship is Magic. A show originally meant for young kids and their parents, but are mostly liked by older people, which I don't actually mind that much. The fact that it's enjoyed by older males was parodied in a POM episode called "Lunacorns on Ice", in which we see that other than Private (the youngest of the penguins), a male gorilla and a male rhino ('manly' animals, if you get what I mean) also enjoy the Lunacorn show.
Evil demon thing (I couldn't catch the long name) possesing the Lunacorn toy = Insane/Rabid bronies, the kind that ruin the fandom. Like Private said at one point, "YOU'VE TAKEN S

Discussion Time! Points~~UPDATE 12/2/11~Discussion Time! Points~4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Found a calculator so that you can know the exact amount to convert if you even need to do point commissions:
Ok, so I was browsing through dA to find some fancy stamps for my page, for commissions and stuff, and I came across this certain stamp here:
Basically, 1 = ¢1.25. A SINGLE PENNY AND A FOURTH. THIS > :iconpennyplz:
There are many people who don't even realize this since they get their points donated to them for doing cheap commissions.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all about self-promotion and getting paid for work. However, it tears me up inside when I see artists, who skill-wise are fairly good, offer their pics for 10 or less (less than a single quarter).
There are some of you that may be doing commissions for roughly that amount. THAT'S FINE. Nothing wrong with getting yourself out there or just practicing on your work in general. However, try to understand this:

With 2012 nearly through and 2013 just around the corner, I figured it was high time I brought a little life back into this group. Being busy in 2012 prevented me from devoting more time here, but I plan on changing that in 2013. So to kick us off, I propose a challenge. Bellow you will find a list of mythical creates from various mythologies. There are 52 of them, one entry for each week of the year. Your goal, draw them all (or as many as possible).
All work must be by you and original. You can not resubmit old work as part of the project.
Please label each work either in description or title that its part of the project and what number and creature its representing.
I know time is an issue for most people, as it is for me. These entries do NOT have to be epic masterpieces; sketches are acceptable though finished work is always proffered.

So there is this group of people on dA who take some already existing art and cut out the backgrounds. That's all. They find some artwork, usually anime fanart, cut the background out, add their own watermark and BAM post it to their galleries as a free to use stocks without the permission of the original authors.
What's most infuriating there is almost always a disclaimer such as this one :
Oi, dumbfucks! Yes I'm talking to you. Why should anyone credit you for something that you did not create. You've contributed nothing. You've cut the background out, something that in most cases, can be done basically automatically by a computer program with a little to no human assistance.
The whole dA's category for stock renders is flooded with this shit --> http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/stockart/3drenders/
I'm sorry but I was under the impression that a render is a 2d image generated from a 3d
