NEW, AWESOME CONTEST!! Ends on 30/12/12'I was just walking through the forest, the wind blowing through my mane, when a strange sound whispered to me through the breeze. The voice drew me towards a small shop, lodged in between dozens of semi-dead trees. A small bell atop the door chimed, signalling my entrance into the store. Looking around, there wasn't much to see, just a bunch of dusty trinkets and a round table in the center of the room, complete with a long red tablecloth and a chipped crystal ball. A half-frown encased my lips as I looked around before the voice once again appeared, coming from behind the counter. I trotted over and peered over the counter, my eyes falling on a small, wrinkled mare, a large grin sat on her lips. She welcomed me to her shop and sat with me at her table. She read my fortune for a small price, and told me I was about to go through great changes! I waved her off, telling her I didn't believe in such nonsense, but she insisted, pushing a small jar of purple liquid towards meNEW, AWESOME CONTEST!!

So the screening there was..... The VA's (minus Tabitha) doing a live cast of the Heart's Warming Eve episode. They used a girl from the audience to sub for Rarity and she was good! That was sooo amazing. Then we got to watch the actual episode with them. (They never seen the whole thing until now)
Gave all the VA's gift art.

For Ashleigh Ball http://i.imgur.com/zTFyR.jpg - She totally loved it. Took a picture with her too. I almost chocked here. I told her about Dash being my favorite pony.

Solved Wacom Intuos 5 Issue with Paint Tool Sai!!Hi Guys!Solved Wacom Intuos 5 Issue with Paint Tool Sai!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Gosh....real long time since last post, but I thought I should put this up for those who are suffering the same issue with Wacom tablets and paint tool Sai.
Issue: I recently bought an intuos 5 to replace my old previous graphics tablet. I installed the intuos 5 with seemingly no troubles at all. It worked on photoshop just great, but as soon as I tried it on paint tool sai, it resulted in terribly lagging flat lines, with no pressure whatsoever. I thought that it might need an up-to-date driver so I d/l that from the wacom site and installed it - still with no luck. I removed the file utility preferences and still nothing. I figured i'd give up on using paint tool sai forever until I found this post:
Solution: "Unplug the tablet, uninstall the drivers and restart Windows. Go to device manager and remove any remaining Wacom entries there from the HID and Mice sections. Also remove remaining files wintab*.* from SYSTEM32 and SYSWOW64 as we
My DeviantArt StoryLots of people are doing this lately. I might actually be a little late to the bandwagon, but I figured it still might be fun to do this. ^_^My DeviantArt Story7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I joined DeviantArt in July of 2006 (back then, I went by the alias, LittleLynn84). It was not the best time for me because I actually had limited means of actually presenting my art at the time. But I'd wanted to get involved on an art site and (at the time, being long pre-transition), I wanted a space where I could be recognized as female (hence the chosen name). If I remember correctly, the little bit of art that I did newly draw was had to be done on paper, and was later brought to a free access scanner at the local college where I would then save to a flash drive and put online when I got the chance again (god, I love being able to draw digitally now). Those early works included stuff like this:
What The Crap Is Even Furry?I think sometimes it gets confusing when we're discussing "furry" because the word covers several different definitions and literally nobody wants to be left out of including their Doom cyberdemon fancharacter and who are you to judge, anyhow?What The Crap Is Even Furry?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Being an english major with an interest in linguistics, I find this is simultaneously a boon--as the lack of solid definitions for any of these prevents people from being shoved out the door for failing to meet that definition . . . but at the same time, it causes an enormous amount of confusion when we're talking past each other saying two (or fourteen) entirely different things with the same word.
Furry as it is used commonly means:
1 - The furry fandom in general. What this necessarily encompasses is hard to pin down; to some people you have to actually accept yourself as part of the fandom, but it's also possible to be a big fat geek about it and clearly be in denial of whether or not you are

Someone should sue your mother for birthing someone so stupid they'll make weird assumptions and insult people just because they got something wrong. Oh really. That coming from someone who body shames and harasses people just for having a different body type then them is really amusing, please tell me more, oh pathetic one.
I never said you should be harassed. I cynically said it's feel-good BS to accept one's own fatness.So you are saying that people should be harassed. Why should I be ashamed of my body? It's the only body I'll have and I don't need your backwards permission to love myself.
A) The rejection I talk about in the description, does not equal harassmentHere's the thing, it is harassment because you're telling people that they should be cruel to fat people. If weight was easy to control, we'd all be skinny/in shape/have 0 disabilities at all.

How the mature content filter works
All members over the age of 18 can choose to enable or disable the mature content filter to suit their needs. All members with a registered date of birth under the age of 18 have the mature content filter locked on and can not disable it. All logged out visitors have the mature content filter enabled and can not disable it.
The mature content filter is split in to two types, strict and warning. The strict filter is completely voluntary and prevents any deviant with the mature content filter on from accessing the work. The general or warning filter is the standard mature content tag and will remove the image from immediate view when browsing and place an warning page on the devi

Guys, just an off topic thing.
I'm unsure just how many of you use deviantart.com, we do and we've used it for years on our personal profiles. In that time, we've gained a following, had moments of sadness, moments of awesome and all manner of things.
But I've noticed these days that people have become incredibly, utterly focused more on the fame game, and getting to the front page under the most popular deviations once a week or every twenty four hours.

I think I've been wanting to cosplay for like.. two years now? Yeah, I've been an otaku for quite a while now, but the 'cosplay' thing never got me anywhere. Why? Because I never knew how to get a costume. Besides.. I didn't know who I should cosplay.
I had watched various animes, but my favorite characters were either boys or.. I didn't like the clothes. I'm not quite able to cosplay as boys either. I didn't want to cosplay people who were just wearing a school uniform or anything of the like, I wanted something special. In the end, I started to think of Kagamine Rin. She's my favorite vocaloid after all. (Next to Len though.) But I didn't like the fact that you could actually see her legs and her belly, so I just couldn't decide if I wanted to do her or not.
At the same time, I was thinking about Crona. As 'he' wasn't a boy or a girl for sure, it was alrigh

My Christmas ExperienceLast year, when I came down to visit family for the holidays, I ended up seeing my extended family on my dad's side (it was the first time I'd see them while presenting en femme). It went pretty sour. There were a couple dozen people there; four of whom said "hi" to me and nothing else. Everyone else just avoided me like the plague. My grandmother wouldn't even look at me. That hit me really hard and left me depressed for months (I don't think I ever discussed it on DA though). Thankfully, progress has happened since, and over the course of the year I got back into contact with two of my aunts. That's still only a fraction of the people that were there, but progress is progress.My Christmas Experience2 months ago in Personal More Like This

Confession 1: Your biggest fear.
Confrontation. Specifically, being confronted about something I've done wrong.
Confession 2: Worst Nightmare.
I assume this means literal nightmares. I went through a several year long phase of constant night terrors as a kid. The most common recurring theme was being lost, or being where I thought home was but my home is vanished, or the door was [ in an apartment ]. I also had a vivd nightmare about a group of kids playing hockey on the little rink near my house but instead of a puck they had a little backpack and the rink was covered in blood. I was about 7 years old.

first thing first- this rule has been around forever. it was one of the first rules written on deviantART. it is nothing new. however, deviantART has cracked down on this before, so you should still be a bit worried.
deviantART has always hated roleplayers. before, they have actually suspended and banned roleplay accounts ( some of mine included, as well as a few of my friends' accounts ) for absolutely no reason at all. my former friend autumn even had her ip address banned for a short period of time. soooo...
