INDIEGOGO ENDED!! Phase one is over!EDIT: 11/18/2014INDIEGOGO ENDED!! Phase one is over!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, as I said of tumblr, I want to thank everyone for their support! We collected almost 10000 through Indiegogo donation! I know it's far from what the goal is but don't worry! We are planing phase two of the campaign! We will not stop just because we didn't reach our goal out of a first try! We will fight until we finally get there!
To everyone who donated and shared the campaign: Thank you! Your support is what helped us get even this far, we really couldn't have done without you! ;u; As I said above, we will continue to fight until our goal is reached so we aren't stopping just yet!
I will update everyone once phase two starts and I will most likely reopen Special Order (and add new ideas for it). If I still owe you those, don't worry! I quite busy with the School Festival (which was a total success! The
Keep your head up: Stay Strong!Life is challenging, isn't it? There are many moments where we face failures that we'd probably never forget about. It is our failures that makes us go downhill; we tend to get depressed after regretting our mistakes that would be impossible to fix. Do you remember your mistakes? I know I have.Keep your head up: Stay Strong!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And when you do remember it, our thorny mind is regretting that moment each minute.
But you know what? It's okay to feel this way.
It's alright to make a mistake. Making a mistake is called being a human, because as far as I know, out of the 8 billion people out there in the world, there is not one person in the world who had never made a mistake. Everyone makes a silly mistake during our lifetime, even our friends and people who we love so much.
Did you make a mistake? That's okay; try again! You have purpose in this life! The world was created for us to live with a reason, is it not?
Don't wish for something to happen; go do it and make it happen! Do you have a crush on that c

Watch out if you get this note!Copied from :iconmore-or--less:Watch out if you get this note!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I saw this post going around on tumblr, warning about a virus being sent around on deviantART. I figured making a journal about it here would be more convenient for those who don't have tumblr, so I copy and pasted the message (and source) below.
If you get a note like this from this guy, ignore it. Delete it. If you ask what his daughter likes, he'll try sending you a very suspicious folder with random art in it, as well as a virus.
Please spread this around because someone who doesn't know any better can really wind up getting screwed over. Thank you!

OMG dA hates NarutoOk, so there's been a bit of drama today because a few Naruto images have been removed. People are blaming hackers and trolls and biased admins, but here's the real deal.OMG dA hates Naruto3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today we received a report about a group that was focused on sexualised images of the girls from Naruto. On inspection there were found to be well over a thousand images that broke our policies regarding underage characters. We removed these these policy violations, but as you can imagine, so many images being removed there was a bit of a stir caused. A very small amount of images were removed accidentally, but we've restored the ones that were and have been notified about. But we're talking less than1% of the images removed.
So why was all this removed?
In short deviantART does not allow the sexualisation of any image involving a human minor, real or fictional.
I know this seems a bit vague and it is clarified a bit in :faq248:
But what does that all really mean? Why is it so vague and subjec

:iconNaranda: Photography by Naranda
So as I mentioned in my last cosplay deviation (uh-- last month), my first week out here was pretty hectic and somehow we managed an impromptu cosplay dinner outing in there somewhere. For this shoot instead of doing "studio" photography or being behind the camera, I handed my DSLR over to Naranda for most of the evening for our "photostory" style cosplay shoot. Admittedly it was really hard to choose which photos to post, there were so many amazing photos of Asher just flailing in perfect Hanna fashion that they just make me crack a huge grin just looking through them. But there is something to be said for moderation in everything, even in photo spamming. And so, these are the fruits of our labor (outtakes may come at a later date).

DON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah BradleyDon't go to art schoolDON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah Bradley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change.
I'VE HAD IT.
I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.
I have a diploma from the best public art school in the nation. Prior to that I attended the best private art school in the nation. I'm not some flaky, disgruntled art graduate, either. I have a quite successful career, thankyouverymuch.
But I am saddened and ashamed at art schools and their blatant exploitation of students. Graduates are woefully ill-prepared for the realities of being professional artists and racked with obscene amounts of debt. By their own estimation, the cost of a four year education at RISD is $245,816. As way
A small talk about pricing your artYou're creating art. You have the passion, you have the skills. Why not make some money out of it then? It's a good idea, right? A lot of people live from creating art, and even more earn some money on the side by taking commissions. You should give it a shot!A small talk about pricing your art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So... How much money is your art worth?
It's a hard question to answer for those who are just starting their adventure with selling and creating art for money. Is its worth equal to the price of the materials you used? Is it equal to the value of the time you've spent on creating it? What about the emotional value you put into it? Should your education influence your prices?
No matter if art is your job, hobby or a pastime, you should never undervalue it. In this article I will try to give some tips as to how assess the value of your artwork and touch the problem of too low prices.
We're in it for the money.

body and soulIn my childhood and my early ages of being a teenager I have faced and endured terrible things such as rape, abuse, distrust, betrayal and the deep wish of ending my life. But I respectfully daresay that today I face an even greater pain: This ever-so fastening pace of the world I’m living in.body and soul10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Back there, I did not know the reason why I wanted to end my life as it became quite natural for me to feel “unwanted”. Today, however, I do not know if I feel empty so often because I did hit the brake too late or maybe because I already crashed into a tree - without me taking notice - on this path of a competing society.
Since I can remember, I decided to be a slow artist. Just like a baby needs a great amount of time, patience and care to grow inside a mother’s womb - perfectly error-prone yet flawlessly complete - all things around us are in need of patience, time, care and effort. As my years of youth pass by and the eyes of adulthood attempt to blind my child-l
Tips For Commission ArtistsHello! I thought of making this small guide, based from my personal experience, to give tips to artists, mostly beginners, to be more successful at selling commissions, since seeing from my previous journal many had difficulty with it. So here are some tips to help boosting your sales.Tips For Commission Artists9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Have your commission info somewhere visible
Possibly, people won't even know you are taking commissions or if they are open if you don't put your commission info somewhere they can see. You can do this in a journal, that I mostly recommend, since it will be showing into your watcher's inboxes and most of your watchers probably rarely visit your profile page. You could still also use the commission widget, or donation poll to write your info. You can also link to your commission info in your signature or the artist's comment of new drawings you upload.
Keep it simple

Another reason why I dislike Amy..Sorry about recent negative stuff about Amy. I've just been thinking and I'd just like to say why I think Amy is majorly overrated, especially game-wise. I just have the feeling that Amy doesn't deserve all the attention and love she gets in Sonic X and the games. It just doesn't feel right.Another reason why I dislike Amy..3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Amy barely worked with her team. All she cares about is Sonic (Actual Quote: "Ooh, this looks dangerous. You might get killed, Sonic! You go first, Knuckles!") and her own enormous ego. (Claims she's sweet, innocent, cute, full of energy, beautiful etc...) She sings about shaving cats and panting herself blue and she believes the moon only shines because it knows Amy loves Sonic. She believes that her slutty outfit will grasp Sonic's attention and make him literally worship her. (Dream sequence in Sonic X.)
I find it disgusting how she obsesses over Sonic and attempts to force him to like her even though she doesn't know what he wants or likes. She hardly ever worked along with him and most

2. Describe an embarrassing moment you have had!
I told the gate agent at my local airport that my phone had been 'blowing up with notifications' in regards to my delayed flight to the U.K. That was pretty embarrassing. Also, I walk into things like every day. I'm pretty dumb.

And then those expectations go down the drain faster than a tank of gasoline in the Hindenburg disaster, when you walk in and realize the only reason why people get millions of pageviews is because of nothing but tits, and flame wars spanning like the Bloods and Crips over in Chichago!
