What Is Blackbox And Why Should I Get It?After taking a look at the screenshots displayed either in my gallery or in :iconblackboxdesktop: 's galleries, a lot of Deviants are asking me what is Blackbox and how (and why) should they use it. And it's a good thing they show interest, because after a period of hibernation, due to many factors (mostly developers dropping out) Blackbox is back with a vengeance.What Is Blackbox And Why Should I Get It?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, Blackbox is a shell for Windows or a window manager for Linux, the styles (themes) being interchangeable between the two platforms, something unique in computing. In this essay I will only talk about the Windows flavor, since it's much more flexible than its Linux counterpart.
What is a shell? Well, it's the dressing over a cake, the clothing over a body, the greenery covering a bush. Every operating system has a shell. The Windows' native shell is Explorer, which is not only a file browser, like most of you may think. Delete Explorer and Windows crash. It's a fine shell, especially in the case of Windows 7, but it's h

DeviantArt Customisation; Custom Box BackgroundsHello this is ClefairyKid, your new co-founder, I've just joined the group to lend some of my experience on the subject of profile customisation. What follows is some advice taken from the article I wrote here; DeviantArt Customisation Explained. Go there if you want a general overview of all customisation concepts (I'll be covering one subject at a time here to save confusion).DeviantArt Customisation; Custom Box Backgrounds3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Custom Box Backgrounds
The thing I am most often bombarded with questions about. There are some important things to remember about these;
You MUST be a premium member on dA to use the code.
You must create the image at the size it will appear in the module, these images do not tile, therefore it is best to create a static image with as small a file size as possible so that it does not take too long to load.
You need to therefore account for the

How to stay creativeMake listsHow to stay creative3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Carry a notebook everywhere
Get away from the computer
Quit beating yourself up
Sing in the shower
Know your roots
Ask "What if ?"
Constantly risk absurdity
Listen to new music
Rock the boat
Surround yourself with creative people
Don't give up
Practise, practise, practise
Make mistakes on purpose
Go somewhere new
Watch foreign films
Break the rules
Start a gratitude list
Get lots of rest
Write your own myth
Do more of what makes you happy
Don't push the river
Read a page of the dictionary
Stop trying to be someone else's perfect
Got an idea? Write it down
Clean your workspace
Learn something new
Create reckless juxtapositions
Make a visual pinboard http://pinterest.com/
Take a walk
Don't ask "What's it for?" "Who will like it?" or "Who will buy it?"
Be kind to yourself

I need requests. I need something to draw. I'm already working on some, but I think that if I have a lot of them my art-block will vanish. I don't know. Try.
Until then. I think I'll have a bath. Or not.
CommissionsCommissionsCommissions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am going to start taking commissions in order to earn some money. I have a few goals it'd be nice to meet, tickets for the Van Gogh exhibit at the art museum, a new external hard drive, a new tablet, maybe even a new computer somewhere down the line. But really, I just would like some spending money.
So, like I said, I'm going to start taking commissions.
These will be traditional, with one exception; I am willing to offer digital inking, as my traditional inking is rather sketchy. Otherwise, as my tablet has gotten temperamental in its old age, I will be using pencil, a mix of Prismancolor, Sharpie, and Micron ink pens, Prismacolor markers, and a white gel pen, depending on what you want.
Prices are as follows. All prices in American dollars.
