deviantART and Offsite Proper EtiquetteKnowing Your Laws!deviantART and Offsite Proper Etiquette3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As some of the taxidermy/pelt collectors know, there’s been a recent influx in people becoming interested in collecting wildlife parts. It’s great to see people becoming interested in taxidermy and such as it’s not an art that is well known. But lately some of the taxidermy community on here has notice way too many people are selling items here and off site that are illegal in general or illegal in their state. Collecting animal parts is not like collecting baseball cards or coins, there are LAWS to them. A lot of members on deviantART don’t seem to get how serious it is if you are caught illegally selling animal parts. We’re talking about $1,000+ fines and even jail time. The federal officers don’t care if you didn’t know the laws or if you’re a kid, your still breaking the law and they will punish you. I always tell new people
On Finding your Totem AnimalOn finding your TotemOn Finding your Totem Animal4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before reading, it is important to first realize what a totem animal actually is. According to numerous cultures throughout history, humans have had a deep connection to the earth and the world's natural energies, which many people believe can be channeled with the help of an animal guide. According to others still, a totem is the animal manifestation of a person's very soul, or even the form a person took in a past life, prior to being human.
The way I see it, a totem animal is whatever you make of it. I personally believe that it's a combination of all the above, though is, most prominently, an animal which is a reflection of yourself.
From a social standpoint, a totem animal says a lot about how a person lives out their life, and indeed, many behaviors which are natural to their totem animal are also displayed in the individual. As a Leopard totem, I'm pretty well-known for being an adrenaline junkie, and for biting off more than I can chew, especially if I'm c
An Incredible WinLast weekend (Sept. 20th) I watched in awe, humility, and surprise as I won the Federal Duck stamp. The duck stamp is not a postage stamp, but a conservation and hunting stamp, 98% of the sale of which goes directly to buy and protect wetlands. This is a very huge, prestigious event and is the only government-run art contest! I am only the third woman to ever win, and this is only the third time ruddy ducks have been selected.An Incredible Win10 months ago in Personal More Like This
It is going to lead me on a whirlwind adventure over the nest year, and I invite anyone that is interested in reading about to follow one of my journals (or, 'blogs') as I post about my experiences!
I have a blog on Blogger: http://duckstampadventure.blogspot.com/ This one allows comments.

Symptoms of WapaneseWapanese are decidedly Caucasian individuals who, by means of thoroughly warped postmodern acculturation processes, have come to the conclusion that it is in their best interest to act as if they were denizens of the nation of Japan (please note that the term weeaboo can be substituted). Due to a chemical imbalance in their heads, the Wapanese will denounce their country, stalk Asian girls, eat nothing but Asian food, live in their parents house until they are 30 or older, and generally be annoyances for the rest of their lives or until they snap out of it, which usually happens around the 9th or 10th grade.Symptoms of Wapanese7 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The term Wapanese is actually derived from the mixing of white and Japanese but due to the fact that Wapanese are no longer all white, we have adopted the new meaning of wannabe Japanese.
Wapanese can be classified by two or more of the following traits:

You have helped me in so many ways. I wish you would be able to see this. If people spread it around maybe you will but I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the impact you have had on my life. There was a time I was very depressed and didn't think well of myself. I found your videos about a year and a half ago now and I have been hooked since then. I tried to watch all the videos from before that, which I still haven't completed, and I fell in love with the connection you had with your fans. You never changed to get a bigger fan base and you didn't let the fame go to your head. I started to fall for you. Then as time went on, I was in a relationship that I got out of recently with someone who meant well but didn't have time to do anything with me, would rather play games with his friends and push me to the side

I know that many deviants have had a rough past year. I know I have. For some, it was the economy, for some changes in their families and loved ones, and I know for some it has even been on deviantART. We have all had struggles, but this time of year, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, is as good a time as any to thank people for what we DO have.
In this world of little, we all have something we hold dear to our hearts. Now is the time to say thanks.
So, what I would like to invite everyone to do is in the next 48 hours (Today + Thanksgiving), fave this journal to show your support, then comment with 4 things you are thankful for:
1 thing on deviantART you are thankful for
1 thing with your family, loved ones, friends, etc. you are thankful for
1 thing in your life you are thankful for
1 piece of art you, or a fellow deviant created that you are th

edit 3/14/15: I'm way too busy and worn out to judge tomorrow, but the contest still closes tomorrow. If anyone has any late entries, tell me now.
DEADLINE APPROACHING. FIVE DAYS GUYS NO ONE IS JOINING IM SOBBING.
yoooooo guys seriously, no one else is entering, ;n;
EDIT 2/24/15: Due to popular demand on my poll as well as the fact that I have more work piling on from school than I can ever not want, I will extend the contest another two weeks or so that I will be frantically getting my school stuff together/dealing with life stuff, I won't be able to judge the contest until later! So the deadline is now MARCH 15TH. That is the last day to submit entries (judging will take a couple days).
I figured that I might as well keep the contest open if I am bust with school things anyway, its more reasonable to give a chance to late entries rather than close and have it sit aside till sc

BulliedIt's around 1 AM, and I am still working on my thesis. （；￣ェ￣）Bullied1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Though I should be thinking of just my thesis...
I couldn't help but find myself contemplating about my life... and I realized how I've been bullied for the last 15 years of my life (at least from what I remember).
My bullying ranged from being sexually harassed by guys since elementary, getting ostracized by my batchmates because I was the new kid, being bashed on by bitches just because I was chosen as an art representative in class, being given a hard time by teachers for no reason (most of them were pervs though), and being singled out by an entire class and my own teacher just because I spoke up that I don't agree with the "class decision". Rarely did someone stand up for me because I had little to no friends. I had only my mom to protect me.
If I were to talk about those in detail, it would probably be as long as the trilogy of LOTR lol I will save you guys from

I've been a member of DeviantART for 6 going on 7 years, so I was what, 14 when I first joined?! Haha whoa. I've changed a lot since then, in that I'm no longer a snot-nosed little prick but instead, a less snot-nosed slightly larger prick.
I wasn't very interested in art as a kid, at least, it didn't really pick up until about when I was ten or eleven where I started just reading books to look at the illustrations. I lied about it like I was hiding a stash of porn. I'm still pretty shy about it. I had a pretty hard time coming to grips with the reality that I wanted to work in some art field, because I felt it was childish and not respectable. Eventually my family got a computer that me and my sister had to take turns on. I used to watch art compilations people had posted on YouTube and tried searching some of the artists that were actually credited, and I found them on dA. I was pretty

Hey gang, please read because this is a long important message:
I just got the biggest emotional kick in the ass I've ever had. I was playing a fan-made game and the ending featured a lot of my old Vlogs to you guys. As I was watching I had the biggest realization I've ever had before and things just came crashing down around me. I had lost the connection I had to you guys.
I used to do Vlogs multiple times a week and make sure that in every single one that I let you guys know how much I sincerely cared about your viewership. But overtime I let myself become obsessed with the numbers game and lost so much of that connection. I hardly do Vlogs anymore and the ones I do I've tried to make entertaining instead of sincere. Watching the end of that video made everything come crashing dow

Animal of June: Fiji Crested IguanaAnimal of June: Fiji Crested Iguana1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Scientific name: Brachylophus vitiensis
Common names: Fiji Crested Iguana, Fijian Crested Iguana
Conservation status: Critically Endangered
Geographic range: Click here to see where this species lives!
Crested Iguanas have one of the longest incubation periods of any reptile at over eight months.
The island of Yadua Taba took extraordinary measures to preserve the Fiji Crested Iguana and its habitat. The removal of overgrazing goats from the island in 2004, the ceasing of forest burning in 1980, and an invasive plant management programme have resulted in a forest habitat increase of 10%-20% over the past two decades, and a population doubling of Fiji Crested Iguanas to 12,000 individuals. The only other island with an increasing population is Macuata.

5 Ruts You'd Better Not Fall Into As A Writer1. Seeking validation on the outside and getting shocked when you get critique. Validation comes from within, folks. Hard life lesson, but there you are. First of all, every artist of any kind has to learn to tell themselves they've done good work even in the face of their detractors. (One just hopes they balance it out with taking valid critique into consideration so they improve.) If you can't, you're not going to accomplish much. Second, I'm not saying that encouragement and fans and book deals aren't very nice things, but to the creative process they can be massive distractions. I read recently that a core of stillness is necessary to the creative process, and the more distracted I get, the more I understand it. I have seen entirely too many writers (and by this I mean full-grown adults who should be emotionally mature and everything) seek validation in a desperate and pathetic way, and get outraged when — gasp — someone tells them their writing could improve.
