Our Contest is Here!Well it's about time I let you all know what I've been thinking (lucky you...it's frightening I know). Anyway, as DA is a site that reaches out to so many people in so many countries, I've been thinking "culturally". So, our OC contest will be:Our Contest is Here!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"We've got Culture"
Deadline: December 1st
So what's it all about?
It's simple really! This is a celebration of culture! It can be your own, or one you love! It has to be an EXISTING culture, or one that EXISTED at some point. For this contest we're not open to OC cultures unfortunately, interesting though they are, we're celebrating the cultures of this world.
So what do you have to do?
Take your character, and throw them into your chosen culture, it's a bonus if that character would fit into the culture!
Be creative, is there a famous story or legend that culture is known for? Why not have your character reenact it? Perhaps you'v

Adoptable Guide - who, what, why - BIG OL' FAQSo if you're reading this, you are curious about that title, or adoptables, or both, or yeah. YEAH.Adoptable Guide - who, what, why - BIG OL' FAQ8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, this is more of a few things I have noticed after watching adoptables sell for a few years. I don't sell them often, so I cant tell you how to design them, but I will give you tips on what I see selling.
What are Adoptables?
Generally, adoptables are designs that people make for others to use in whatever they please.
Are they free?
Sometimes. Mostly no, but sometimes yes! Some people give them away, some are cheap (like 10 cents cheap) and some are really expensive in the hundreds.
WOW. Who would BUY that?!
Anyone with money, I suppose! It's their art, let them price what they want. What's it to you if they don't make a sale?
Besides, if someone LIKES their art, and WANTS to pay that, then why bother questioning?
If it makes both of the artist and customer happy, let them do it.
Adoptables are dumb.
Okay, but don't tell that to th
Internet Copyrights 101Since there was an app recently on Facebook which resulted in numerous copyright infringements and legal issues, I figured now would be a good time to refresh everyone on basic internet copyright rules. These rules are by no means complete, official, or set in stone, and there are always exceptions.Internet Copyrights 1014 years ago in Personal More Like This
Follow the TOS
This should be self explanatory, but please follow the Terms of Service agreements you signed for whatever website you're currently on. Not all websites have the same rules and restrictions in their TOS and you should treat each site individually and not expect that since you got away with something on one site means you'll get away with it on another. Most websites do not allow uploading of content that is not your own.
Ask permission first.
A lot of copyright infringement happens because people don't bother to take the time to ask the original creators if it's alright to repost. It usually doesn't take much effort to send an e-mail or note asking for pe
Do not shit on people with closed speciesI know I just had a happy go lucky journal but I just checked my message from someone demanding I 'dont make a profit off my closed species' and that they can 'make one if they want'.Do not shit on people with closed species11 months ago in Personal More Like This
The reasons for my closed species being CLOSED is that they're in development. There is a lot of thought put into them, and so much left for me to write. They are closed because it helps me keep a sort of control over the designs just in case someone goes against the appearance or lore. It is ALSO my only source of income that i NEED to survive. So yes, you're right, I'm trying to turn a profit off my species, of my designs, but it's absolutely necessary right now.
And aside from that we're artists we're ALLOWED to make money off our intellectual property and you know what, sure, you can make one of someone's closed species but guess what that makes you an asshole with no respect for the artist. it's disgusting. going around telling people that their designs dont matter and they shouldn't profit off it is
Cartoonists out there! You'll find this funny...I remember during my second year of art college back in the day, (Yes sempai has been in college for 4 years or so due to switching majors so many times.) my old art professor gave a special lecture in class about cartoons! I remember growing up, and learning how to draw cartoon characters, both male and female. Well, this wasn't a problem I ever really came in contact with, since I always drew cartoons with more detail and realism in mind.Cartoonists out there! You'll find this funny...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My second year art professor taught us a very important lesson about drawing the male and female figures for cartoon characters...do NOT be afraid, to draw the crotch. No seriously folks, this is no laughing matter....(tee hee crouch) just because your drawing a cartoon does not mean they do not have private parts. (I'd get angry people writing to me if I even mentioned the word Peni--err I mean...nvm)
Cartoons (unless created differently by it's creator) have private areas folks, do not be afraid to draw them the way they should be. After all, don'

Do you do commissions? Promote your art!The RulesDo you do commissions? Promote your art!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You must fill in one of our Commission ID Cards (shortened to CIDC) to be promoted. See below for more information!
You must use example images in your CIDC of your work. The images must be relevant to the group, and follow all the standard Draw-Em-All and deviantART rules. This does not mean you can only offer Pokémon commissions!
In the upload of your CIDC you must place a link to a journal, external webpage (i.e Etsy) or quote your prices.
You may offer point commissions - however we will not accept anyone wanting points for craft commissions. Nor any commissions under 10.
When editing your CIDC you may only apply image and text to the ID - you may not alter any of the image. Max. 3 images.
Now for how it all works!
Every member can upload up to one of each CIDC, with a maximum of 3 images in each one.
When uploading, you must upload to the COMMISSION folder!
Tired of the Video Game IndustryWith the PS4 on the way, the gaming industry is alive once again reminding us how dull and boring and... wrong... it is. Here's a quick summary of some of the things I'm sick to death of hearing about when it comes to video games.Tired of the Video Game Industry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know
5 ways to get into the creative zoneDear, deviantart fellow artists5 ways to get into the creative zone1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sometimes we tend to feel unmotivated and uninspired to do anything... but there are also those blissful moments of creativity, when inspiration strikes and time goes by unnoticed. Not getting distracted, going with the flow, so merged in the process, that there is no need to do anything else until the work gets done. But how to get in that mood more often..? Here are some ways/tips that helped me over the time.
1. Prepare your work space
Make the place you work as comfortable and useful as possible. Clean the desk from all the clutter, gather your tools in a most accessible way, organize in order to avoid mess. Set the according light, have some inspiring quotes, goals written around.
2. Avoid distractions
Turn off the internet. Or close all the tabs, you don’t need. Especially, social media sites. Don’t check the news/e-mail/mobile phone all the time. Get in the place where

Okay everyone, here is the long awaited Pyramid Head Helmet Tutorial! Unfortunately, I do not have step by step pictures, nor do I have measurements of the actual frame or the foam-board panels, just the finished product. Also, I did not sketch out blueprints when I made the helmet, but I used pictures as references. I'll describe later how I did that. As a matter of fact, that might be more helpful to you than the actual measurements themselves. But anyways, lets get started. Use the following links as reference throughout the tutorial:

Devious Journal EntryDear fellow papercrafters,Devious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As we’re sure a few of you have noticed lately, model posting has kind of slowed below the expected schedule that we have kept since the start. A lot has been going around in our lives and the situation has led the team to be a little low on time, organization and even will to go on lately... And sadly, after talking together, we came to the conclusion that it won't be changing any time soon.
Thus, after mutual agreement, we decided that we are not going to post models regularly anymore and also decided to take a break for a little while. We can tell you that there will be new models, just not when or how many. Of course, models already on the site will stay up and still be accessible.
When we started Paperpokés, we were a bunch of friends who decided to get together and create things solely for the pure enjoyment of making Pokémon papercraft models. As sad as it can sound, a while ago we lost track of those simple reasons and started to view
