An IMPORTANT NOTE to all artists!Please read this if you are someone who offers commissions, or someone who KNOWS anyone who offers commissions, cares about anyone who offers commissions, etc. etc. etc. This is both a warning against certain types of people who would take advantage of you, as well as a reminder about why it's important to be aware of your own worth as an artist and the services you are offering to others! I also hope it's helpful to those who do not make art, and like to buy commissions, as it may give you some insight about how to not be offensive to the artist who is doing work for you.An IMPORTANT NOTE to all artists!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Without naming any names (but if any of this gets personal on the other side of it, this will become a PSA against taking commissions from specific folks, so let it be known that I tried to play nice out the gate), someone I know recently took a commission for what is, in my opinion, an INCREDIBLY low amount of money. What they were offering was worth way more, quality-wise as well as content-wise, than what w
Best way to record yourself drawing digitallyUpdate: Added section about CONVERTING video sessions below.Best way to record yourself drawing digitally4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Quick bit of help here, because I'm not sure if everyone knows the best way to handle this if you want to record your progress while drawing in Photoshop, Manga Studio, Painter, whatever.
IF YOU ARE USING WINDOWSYou may have tried some of the screen recorders out there like CamStudio, FRAPS, or some free ones out there. You may have noticed, or had become frustrated with, the fact that many of these programs cause a significantly huge hit on your system's performance. When you try drawing in Photoshop, your tablet response comes to a screeching halt. Then you find a program that records without impacting your drawing performance -- only to find that the resulting video recorded at about 1 frame every 3 seconds. Then you tried FRAPS, then found out that 4 minutes of video resulted in a 3.2GB file. All of these are less than ideal.
A while back, I searched all over the net for a program that encoded video from my screen
Valentine's Contest! :UPDATE: 3 Full Days Left!UPDATE This is still going on! You have up until 12:00am MST on March 1st! Because the 1st is when I'll be judging the entries! If you think you're going to be late, just let me know!Valentine's Contest! :UPDATE: 3 Full Days Left!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Usually, I hold special commissions when a holiday is coming up, but this month I decided to mix it up, and do something different! I'm holding a contest! Anyone can enter!
Since this is the month of love, the point of this contest is to take any of my following OCs and to pair them up with someone. Whether it's another of my OCs, your personal OC, or a character from an anime, manga, tv, movie, etc. I don't really care!
I've kept the refs to head shots, because I don't want their normal outfits to inhibit creativity. Also, I apologize that they're only quick sketches. My tablet is having some issues, and I just can't figure it out at the moment. I've been trying everything. So I hope you can forgive me!

Collection: My Little Pony plz - Mane Cast 1/2Hello, my sexy ponies!Collection: My Little Pony plz - Mane Cast 1/24 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, I totally stole that greeting from the adorable :iconkezzi-rose: whose profile you should definitely visit. I have never seen a cuter one on deviantArt
This is a collection of so-called plz-accounts related to the animated television series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". If you have not seen it yet, this is your first step in joining the herd. Just watch the Pilot Episode and see if it can win your sympathy The original collection comes from MLPFiMplz, but it has not been updated in a while, so I thought I make it 20% cooler

Art4Love, blah blah blah.I'm sure many of you are aware of the Art4Love.com drama floating about. How this Chad Love fellow stole the works of many artists from here on deviantART, including myself, and was selling them for ridiculous amounts of money, claiming they were oil paintings, even shipping them with a certificate of authenticity.Art4Love, blah blah blah.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, there seems to be some ridiculous responses going around to this. I'm not going to call anyone out by name, but a certain deviant has taken it upon himself to ask for donations in order to hire 'the best copyright lawyer' and pursue a 'class action lawsuit'. This in my opinion is a bullshit move, as any copyright lawyer worth his weight would probably take on something this big and blatant for a percentage with no upfront fees to begin with. It's pretty clear cut copyright infringement on a massive scale.
I personally think this deviant jumped the gun and instead of taking a moment to think about the situation, figured he'd get everyone riled up and paying for his la
Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy4 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.
From the Exorcist through Paranormal Activity, generation after generation of “believers” seem to have come to the reali

Michael Praed fangirlinessJust for :iconAvarahaiel:Michael Praed fangirliness10 years ago in Personal More Like This
Um. Yeah. I'm still really rather lost for words. There are very few men I would happily run off with and damn the consequences. Michael Praed is now one. As Ann says, he's unfairly handsome. As Ayla says, he's severely fuckable. There aren't many man that do almost elfin beauty with complete masculinity. He is certainly one!
And a wonderful actor. And a *lovely* man.
Saw him in "Misery" last night, at the King's Head Theatre in Islington, north London, playing (obviously) Paul Sheldon to Susan Penhaligon's Annie. (S.P. is a wonderful wonderful actress).
Wonderful show, really well done. If you know the book, you'll know the stage show. It's much more like the book than the film is. CHMs abounded in the second half when Michael was wearing a really loose blue shirt with the top few buttons undone *guh* And it was a tiny theatre - about 30 seats, and I was sitting in the front row, so everything was *really* clo
Vibram FiveFingersGo have a look at this link:Vibram FiveFingers5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now set aside your reaction of "Dude, what the fuck, those look retarded!" and buy a pair.
These things are AWESOME. I bought some Classics about a month ago and have since fallen in love with them. I just ordered myself some Treks because they have better traction on mud and ice (being winter and all...) and because they're a little more 'normal' for casual wear.
Basically, I plan to set aside ALL of my other shoes and just wear these, unless I specifically need protection from stuff falling on my feet.
What's so awesome about them? Well, for one, they are healthy. My feet feel amazing - strong and tough, with no athlete's foot or anything else. My leg muscles are stronger, especially the ones I never used much walking in heeled shoes/boots. My joints (especially my busted-up left knee) feel better, because walking with a forefoot strike puts less force through them. My gait has improved and I walk more upright, which is g

I know that my journals are very far and few between and all I can do is apologise for my tardiness
For all of you wonderful deviants who constantly feature my works, I thank you with great respect and gratitude for your unwavering support even though my offerings have only been coming far and few of late. This I cannot do anything about and have to just weather it out as and when my muse decides to make an appearance.
Having said that, even though I dont post as often anymore, I am still in DA each and every day checking out your works and generally lurking in the background. I haven't deserted DA.....yet!! DA just isn't the place it used to be though and with each new day I see more and more inactive and deactivated members and it makes me sad. I could go on and on about this but I wont. Im sure you all see it

PowerSomtimes you need power to do things you don't want to do or can't even do.Power2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You have to do it, but there are things in your life which won't let you do everything necessary.
I can say, that I'm a strong person, and some people would even say there is nothing that could detain me, when I'm doing the necessary things, but sometimes, even without knowing, I have to see I can't do everything I want.
I have three attempts to do an exam, and when I don't pass it for the third time, I'll have to quit my university studies. Most of the time, I passed my exams. Just a few were a problem, which I could solve by writing it for the second time.
Now there is one exam I haven't passed for the second time, and I'm full of fear to write it again.
I don't want to think about what would happen if I don't pass it next time, but it's hard not to think about that.
Sometimes there are dark thoughts pulling me down. There is nothing that co
