My apologises to everyone who has been anticipating an update on the Cursed Wombat website - lately I've been unable to concentrate or dedicate time to the project but I'll continue my research and commutation of ideas and inspiration during my trip to the UK. I need to find a coal mine museum in Wales to understand better how it looks like and how it operates.

I managed to catch up with Kovabomb a few nights ago. We had a good time catching up and chatting about fun stuff, and as usual, it involves Sonic Archie Comics and the voice acting business.

Protect Your WorkFor many artists, art theft is a frustrating reality. No matter how we watermark, logo, or constrain the resolution of our work, there are instances where artwork will be reposted, ripped, or used for commercial gain without credit or compensation. For some, this can be almost flattering, to know that there are those that like your work enough to steal it. But, the fact still remains, that your work has been used without permission, and for no gain of your own.Protect Your Work6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I have been a photographer for four years now, and throughout that time I am always learning. Part of that education is around copyright, and how to protect my work. The collage above is a brief representation of some of the ways my photography has been stolen. Some were edited without permission, event advertisements, included in a calendar, manipulated to advertise jewelry, sold on canvas, for promoting a cosmetic brand, or even for music videos.

Paypal has changed their layout, you can still send invoices but you can no longer select digital goods.
I haven't had time to really look into it and come up with a solution.
but you pretty much HAVE to send out something physical now if you want to be fully protected. There's still main points in this journal that describe how to go about that.
This Journal is currently Under Revision.
Points have been brought to my attention that have caused me to need to revise this journal.
I am still digging around on my free time to see if I can find a way around this. I will update daily.
Please note that this is specifically for Artists who use Paypal to sell digital goods.
OK, so there has been many artists being scammed lately through Paypal with large chargebacks. If you have been hit by a chargeback recently please feel free to note me and I will try my best to help

I'm not going to mess about here; DeviantART is a bit of a point of contention for me, however it's grown to be rather useful platform for many things. Professional as well as personal. However as of recent, as with a lot of things with life as of recent, rules have gotten a little bit Lax. I have witnessed experiences from friends concerning what constitutes as a "rip" and outright copying, and what doesn't. As it stands, a handful of admins here share a scope on this that makes budding artists- serious or not- think it's completely okay to take an idea that is essentially someone else's- fanart or not- tweak a few poses here and there and claim it's conception was entirely theirs.
To say that I have experienced this with my own artwork would be the most obvious statement I've ever made here. In regards to the Sonic artwork community, I'm edging on to my eleventh year here. There are a mere handful of us who can lev

Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.Conquer your artblock6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.

Here are some handy resources concerning the "free art"-people. First of all, there's this handy flowchart called "Should I Work For Free?.
If they say they'll pay you with:
-Eventual cut of the profit when profits are made
-No pay, since artists "shouldn't be sell-outs, but draw for fun"
Then run for the hills and get away as fast as you can.
Because if it's for a game, a comic or another for-profit project, the most normal response should be "Fuck you. Pay me." (worded politer, though that goes without saying).
Spec-work? -- Fuck you. Pay me.
"We don't have the budget for 20 sprite-sheets, but we'll sell this game and your name will be in the credits!" -- Fuck you. Pay me.

Just replace "Washington redskins" with "Deviantart". i don't know about you guys but i believe this IS the biggest "Fuck you" they have ever come up with. cheesy as it is that's what crossed my mind first. Jokes aside i also thought it was a bit sad.
People are leaving the site, some people don't even dare or care to speak up and others only complain. so i thought about doing something instead of complaining as you've all seen I've created my OWN version of the new DA logo because i know they'll never revert back to the old logo nor convert to something entirely new.

Finally some women who agree with mehttp://www.refugees.bratfree.com/read.php?2,305671Finally some women who agree with me2 years ago in Personal More Like This
They're saying what I've been saying! Modern feminism has been taken over not only by misandrists but also by broodmares who choose the traditional route. Furthermore, those women call other women like myself the "she-misogynists" because I don't pander to their foolishness. They also mention that women who label us when we call them out are the ones who kill women's credibility. It's true. Part of the reason we as women are not taken seriously as we'd like to be is because of other women's actions.
The only difference between me and the posters is I'm not a feminist. I believe in equal rights, equal pay for equal work, reproductive rights for all, etc., but I don't consider myself feminist.
I'm an egalitarian.

After seeing the amount of wolfaboos on places such as deviantART, YouTube, Facebook etc, I thought it would be interesting to try and reconstruct the life of the average wolfaboo and get an insight to just how arrogant and pathetic these uneducated people are. Another thing to point out is that the text below is written in decent-enough English, and that a wolfaboo would rarely, if ever, type/ write like that, just so you know.
The daily life of a Wolfaboo...
Saturday morning. I woke up and saw it was 11:00am, but I remembered that having the wolf as my inner animal meant I had to stay up late last night and howl at the moon when my mother had gone out. I growled and stretched like a wolf would, because after all, I am a wolf, right? I looked at all my wolf books and stories all over my messy bedroom. I saw my Wolf's Rain DVDs, and I sighed with happiness. It was all true. Wolves really can leap at very high altitude, have a pa

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is a United States bill introduced by U.S. Representative Lamar S. Smith (R-TX) to expand the ability of U.S. law enforcement to fight online trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods. Provisions include the requesting of court orders to bar advertising networks and payment facilities from conducting business with infringing websites, and search engines from linking to the websites, and court orders requiring Internet service providers to block access to the websites. The law would expand existing criminal laws to include unauthorized streaming of copyrighted content, imposing a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

So to the point. I feel kind of bad about not making this place a bit more active, so I'm trying to think of things to contribute. The Little Tail Bronx series started with the gem Tail Concerto, but it is probably the hardest game to get your hands on. Unless you're willing to spend $50+ dollars for a used copy, you're not likely to be able to get one. Let alone a full set of disc, case, and the booklet that comes with it.
So you wouldn't think the booklet is that important, but actually it contains quite a bit of intriguing information that you wouldn't know by just playing the game. Some of this info is made more clear in Solatorobo (while at the same time some of it contradicts Solatorobo). Regardless, I figured it might be an interesting read for anyone who hasn't been able to get a copy of the Tail Concerto game, or even just the booklet.

-but they're always asking for Korrasami to be canon the most (Come on, why are they even trying anymore? The creators have pretty much already confirmed that the series will be ending without any stupid romance whatsoever)
-They claim how they love the fact that the series focuses now focuses more on friendship than love triangles
-and then immediately shun away every character who's had screentime with Korra except for Asami
-They claim that they're happy with Korra and Asami getting screentime together as FRIENDS
-and then they completely go apeshit with treating every single Korra/Asami screentime scene like it's romantically canon
-They claim that they love Korra and Asami as strong independent female characters
-yet also enjoy all the fanart of them being dumbed down into completely OOC oversexualized Mary Sues who only depend on each other to live

The Four TemperamentsDoes anyone else not understand why they don't talk about this more at schools? They teach all kinds of useless things when this could have been very informative. They talk about getting along and being peaceful WHEN THIS COULD OF MAYBE SORTA REALLY EXTREMELY HELPED. Did I say help? Understanding each other is supposed to be the #1 thing to getting along, when they should've talked more about introvert and extrovert personality types! Also, it's pretty obvious schools favor extroverted activities. Group work, pick a partner, being with more than one group of students during gym...it's no wonder school was so frustrating for me! Believe me, I'm not against extroverts at all, extroverts are wonderful and I'm very grateful for them, it's just that schools need to understand that not all of us have these qualities (and saying that you can change an introvert into an extrovert is ridiculous). We would have much happier and less frustrated students.The Four Temperaments11 months ago in Personal More Like This
