New Premium Membership Feature: 10% off!You may have already heard, but we just launched a new feature as part of the Premium Membership package... Premium Members now receive an ongoing 10% discount on Prints and deviantWEAR purchases! That means they'll be saving 10% on all Photo Prints, Fine Art Prints, Wrapped Canvases, Art Gifts, T-shirts, Backpacks, Hoodies, and the rest of our devious gear. If that wasn't a sweet-enough deal, we've made it so that this discount stacks with most other sales that happen in our shop. For example, if we're running a 15% discount on Fine Art Prints, Premium Members will get a total of 25% off because of their additional 10% discount.New Premium Membership Feature: 10% off!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why are we doing this?
Why not?! We wanted to add this discount as a small token of our appreciation for all the support Premium Members provide us. While we have many more upgrades in the works for the Premium Membership package, I'm excited that we were able to get this to you all in time for the holiday season.
How's it work?
Battle of the Brands - The Polymer Clay ConundrumMany of us start with one brand of polymer clay to start, and as we embrace the clays pros, we often eventually get used to the cons as well and work our way around them. But what if you knew which brand was right for you before you even touched the clay? Each polymer clay brand has many characteristics that make it distinct from other brands, so if you are looking for a specific trait in your clay, you might want to read on. Who knows, you might find something better then what you are working with right now.Battle of the Brands - The Polymer Clay Conundrum5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have personally tried every popular brand of polymer clay, and there are about five of them. There are also the polymer clays that require painting afterwards, like Studio by Sculpey as well as Super Sculpey... but I will not get into those.
The five most easily attainable clays are Fimo Classic, Fimo Soft, Sculpey III, Premo, and Kato Polyclay. Each have their own distinct characteristics, pros, cons, and baking times. These are my findings in point form:

Pacdabutt's FAQ Last updated: 11/4/12Pacdabutt's FAQ7 years ago in Personal More Like This
Dating sims/Flash Questions
What do you use to make your games and dating sims?
Macromedia Flash 8. (I'm using a pretty "outdated" version FYI...)
Is Flash free? Does it come with most computers like MS Paint?
It does not.
Where/how can I get Flash?
It can be purchased from the official Adobe website here. Like Photoshop, it's expensive. More retailers can be found with Google.
Will you make another sim date soon?
I might (if I'm not making one right now). But from 2009-2012, I've managed to release 2-3 games per year. I work on sim dates when I please.
Why don't you make dating sims for guys?
My current audience is made up of mostly young females. I'd like to target towards them. There are many visual novels/dating simulations for males out there though. Most are in Japanese, but there are quite a few in English too. Note that many if not most of them fe

Is Link actually.... dead ? o.oOne of my favorite Zelda game has always been Majora's mask ^^ In fact I would say it's my second favorite after A link to the pastIs Link actually.... dead ? o.o2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I absolutely loved the atmosphere of the game, the very unique gameplay mechanic, and that slightly creeping feeling you had in the background that something was not quite right. You felt vulnerable and diminished and very involved with this strange dying world with so many familiar - yet strangers - faces.
Well I just watched an interesting video brining a stunning theory that Link actually died through the game o.o According to that theory, the five areas of the game represents the five stages of grief : denial - anger - bargaining - depression - acceptance in the exact order they're said to occur and the game is about Link coming to term with his own demise.
"You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?"
It's clear there is something definitely more somber about this one Zelda than the others. Under

New Commissions Portal Coming SoonOur team has been testing an early version of our brand NEW Commissions portal. On the Commissions Portal you can find ALL of the (currently) 26,000 available Commission offers from artists, neatly categorized by Style, Type, Price, Popularity, etc. It's awesome!New Commissions Portal Coming Soon2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
When we launched Commission widgets on Profile pages a few months ago, I personally didn't find them to be very helpful by themselves. Without a directory of available artists for commissions, and what commission options there are from across the whole community -- I couldn't be sure that I was buying the right thing.
The new portal (which will be accessible right from deviantART.com's home page) has added an incredible value to my life since I've been playing with it: The ability to easily commission artists!
Because the commissioning process exists in-line on the Commission area, I was able to facilitate 5 commissions in an initial 2 minutes and 30 second

Fuck you. Pay me. -- A masterpost for artists.As an artist, you probably will be approached by various people over time. Some may be looking for commissions, others will most likely be looking for free art.Fuck you. Pay me. -- A masterpost for artists.2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
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.
"We need 10 sprites / full paintings by tomorrow,

This is my current project: Lunar Days Sim Date. Here, I already made a FAQ so don't ask unnecessary questions:
Q: Release date?
idk. tba. Maybe around 2012 like how it says on the poster above?Around January 2012...
Q: How many characters are datable?
A: Eight. Four are unlockable though.
Q: What about Xolga and Mr. Toko? ;A;
A: Like Chrono Days, they will be running shops in this game. Mr. Toko will not be Veon's partner in crime as shown in Emerald Moon.
Q: Is there anything different about this sim date compared to the others?
A: The story and cut scenes will run kind of like Xolga and Mr. Toko (visual-novely). This mean more drawing for me, but I think the extra work will be well worth

I speak, dear friends, of the holy vows of matrimony, a pledge to honor, love, and keep one's true love forever and always.
