Goodbye Comments SectionSo I finally bit the bullet and disabled comments on all my artwork. I had been thinking about doing it for a while now, and after conducting a poll and seeing an overwhelming support of doing it, I decided to finally act upon it. Deviations I submit will no longer have comments. Journals and my FrontPage will because I can’t disable those (trust me, I would’ve disabled my FrontPage comment section YEARS ago if I could. That place is a cesspool).Goodbye Comments Section4 months ago in Personal More Like This
The reasons for disabling comments are pretty simple. I get a lot of hate on the internet and it’s negatively affecting me. I am, I admit, a special case. I likely get more hate than most “famous” DA users do, and as such I have to tailor my needs specifically. I also have been growing very wary about how toxic the DA community can be at times. DA doesn’t police new accounts and it’s very easy for trolls to perpetuate their activities. Blocking doesn’t really DO anything as anyone can just create
Minecraft sold to Microsoft - Notch LeavingSo the news this morning was that Notch, creator of the wildly successful Minecraft, not only sold Mojang to Microsoft, but he’s also stepping down from Mojang. Microsoft acquired the company for 2.5 BILLION dollars. You can read his post and what it’ll mean to the future of Mojang here: https://mojang.com/2014/09/yes-were-being-bought-by-microsoft/Minecraft sold to Microsoft - Notch Leaving5 months ago in Personal More Like This
However, that’s only one part of the story. Notch stepping down from Mojang is a little more complicated. He mentioned that he’s realized that he’s becoming a symbol for people, not a person, and as a result he gets drawn into a lot of debate or blamed for things he never said or did. He cited this video as a good example of what his life has become recently:
I watched the This is Phil Fish video on YouTube and started to realize I didn’t have the connection to my fans I thought I had. I’ve become a symbol. I don’t want to be a symbol, responsible for something huge that I don
Yes All GamersSo I guess my last journal kinda annoyed a few people who were upset at being generally labeled “gamers” when talking about the extremists who are using the term for their own causes: ie: #GamerGate. I’m not going to apologize for writing the journal that way, though. If you don’t want to be associated with those bigots and your first reaction is to personally vindicate yourself from the herd instead of, you know, fighting the main source of the problem... them I’m sorry but that negative version of “gamer” that you’re trying so hard to avoid being associated with IS how you are being perceived by the greater non-gamer entrenched world.Yes All Gamers5 months ago in Personal More Like This
THEY don’t care that you “only want to play games that are fun,” because what they’re SEEING (and reporting on) is a hoard mentality of angry people rallying against women in gaming and harassing them to unreal levels. No matter how much you try to distance yourse
About my TMNT rantGot a long journal head of you. I tried to break it up a bit so you can skim parts.About my TMNT rant6 months ago in Personal More Like This
It appears some people were a little less than happy with the idea that I’m not going to see the new TMNT movie, yet have already formed a negative opinion about it. Some people, who don’t understand what the word means, are calling this “hypocritical” since I often ask that people try to see both sides of an issue, so taking a definitive stance here with (what appears to be to them) incomplete data is wrongheaded of me. So now I gotta write this journal to explain my actions better. Hope you’re happy ‘bout that...
It’s just a movie! Why does it matter?
Because it’s not JUST a movie. Movies do not exist in a vacuum. How well (or bad) a movie does informs YEARS of upcoming movies and careers. Thousands of people’s jobs are dictated on the whim of what the box office rankings are for opening weekend. A now famous example is Guillermo
3D Movies aren't as crisp as they use to beThis is a realization I had after getting the chance to watch some old school Pixar films in HD recently. While the story of Toy Story holds up well, the actual graphics and presentation look downright archaic in HD. Sometimes characters appear to “float” on the ground, while other times their feet intersect into the floor. Bump mapping textures are grossly pixelated. And I could literally see the wireframe corners of Buzz Lightyear’s mouth clipping into itself.3D Movies aren't as crisp as they use to be6 months ago in Personal More Like This
That being said, one of the positive things I noticed was when I was watching A Bugs Life. The movie just POPPED with so much clarity and crispness. It was so beautiful to look at in HD. And then it hit me... the reason 3D movies don’t look this good, is because they’re not crisp anymore.
See, as technology got better, we learned how to round the edges of characters better. Objects that are square are still slightly rounded on the corners to make them more believable. And we learned to add in rack

In 2005, a gaggle of weak-minded twits blew themselves up on the London Underground. I and 1.2 BILLION other passengers per year still use it. Could another attack happen? Of course. But so could fire, flood, collapse or accident. You could get hit by a bus as you exit the station! There are a thousand-and-one terrible things that could happen to you today and, I assure you, unless you live in some third world sh*thole, the odds of a random yahoo causing you physical harm for political or religious reason is one of the least likely to occur.

heads upRecently, there's been a link circulating on deviantART that automatically deactivates your account. Somehow, the site was hacked into, and now if you visit neomoti or gary-niger's profile and type in your username and password when it "logs you out", you're pretty much screwed.heads up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The link itself does you no harm whatsoever, and you can browse the profile all you want, but when the artificial login screen appears, do not type in your personal information. This gives them access to your account, which will be deactivated, and it's simply bad news altogether.
Thank kit for the heads up. She let me know about the link, and I tracked it down to try it out for myself and gather some more information on it.

Of course that’s not at all what Patreon is or what I would be doing with it. I would be using it to post NEW artwork and content in a much more regular pace, post/send out rewards for subscribers (and let them see everything first, of course) and possibly use the reward system to help spruce up my websites and just get things running a lot smoother than they currently are.
I’m just not sure if I can handle it, though. I have a very time consuming job, so my time making art is limited. I would LOVE to get back to a point where making art/comics is my only concern... and so I guess I’m gonna a

A weird storya journal from my ipad. It was 2 years ago when I had my accident. I was driving home from school with my sister in the back-seat. The day before it was raining so it left alot of holes in the gravel so the road were very bumpy. As I was driving not 2 miles from my house I hit a deep hole the broke the axel of my car. Me and my sister swerved into a ditch hit the side making us fling into the air. All I could remember was my sister screaming then we landed on the roof of my car then .... nothing I blacked out. I awoke in a dark room that looked like a waiting area for a hotel or a hospital. On the walls I can pictures no like a T.V.s showing alot of my good deeds. There were so many i couldn't count them all. I thought to my self "I'm dreaming, any minute I'll be at school in my underwear." but, as the time went on two doors showed up with weird symbols on them. I looked at them both one was a white door but, it wasn't a normal white it seemed to glow like it was made from light it eveA weird story2 years ago in Personal More Like This

DA's New Logo, and Leaving DA?DA’s New LogoDA's New Logo, and Leaving DA?2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Looks like crap. I don’t really have anything else to say other than it’s absolutely shitty design work. Apparently the story is that DA had a logo designing contest, but didn’t consult their lawyers till AFTER the contest began. The lawyers advised not using any of the submissions which is why we get this new ugly shitty logo that represents NOTHING about DA other than the usual blatant disregard for community input. Shame too, cuz the art from everyone else looks INFINITELY better than what DA eventually decided to go with.
I dunno if that story is true, but it sure sounds like it could be. Please feel free to correct me in the comments below if I’m wrong.
(PS: Also the Russian studio Platzkart’s logo looks HIGHLY similar to DA’s new ugly one.)

A Word of Caution☆ Happenings ☆A Word of Caution4 months ago in Personal More Like This
To any artists taking commissions, please be extra cautious. It is unfortunate that people even make this necessary, but in light of recent events, I felt I had to say something.
Unless you're absolutely certain the client is trustworthy, I strongly suggest you not to begin working until you've received full payment. Be particularly wary if:
The client is new and/or has an empty account.
The client seems vague or is hard to understand when working out the details of the commission.
The client comes across as rude or impatient.
Search the client's name for any warnings of fraud or general bad behavior when working with other artists.
Look at works they've previously commissioned and don't be afraid to ask your fellow artists if you're feeling unsure. This is a good way to check their track record.
TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS! Even if
