Use as you wish :)I get a lot of people who ask me various questions about usage of my art- Here is my stance on the matter. I really don't mind if you want to use any of my pictures (unless they are commissions, which are labeled).
This includes use as signatures, avatars, original stories, etc., as long as you credit and link back, and as long as you don't intend to make any profit from the use of my artwork.
I also don't mind if you want to use any of my pictures as references for drawing/redrawing (although you can probably find much better work out there to reference ), and if I have any sketches or line arts up at any point, you can color them as you please. You don't need to ask my permission for any of these things, but I would like a link (you can even just post it here in the comments section) so I can see how/where you are using my work
I know I don't see all the notes that I get, and I try to make sure I read all my comments but rarely get to respond back to them, but I always fe

I've created this little journal for those awful moments when I have no inspiration to draw. Yeah, I'm sure you've experimented that too... it sucks right? you want to draw, but can't find anything that inspire you '_'
So, I had this idea : would you like to give me subjects to draw, like your original characters ? ^_^
Be one of my watcher
post references on this journal about your favourite original character (please no characters from anime/games... I want YOUR character)
... and wait
I won't tell you if I draw your character or not.
I also won't tell you if it will be a black and white picture or a watercolor~
and please, do not be mad at me if I don't pick your character, I have so many suggestions, I do my best.
I really just want to become a better artist, if I can achieve this AND make you guys ha

* A Guide to Reporting Art Theft *I copied this from :iconthe-Nutkase:'s journal entry because I thought this was a really good guide on how to deal with art theft. I hope that it helps you guys too* A Guide to Reporting Art Theft *2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"I've seen quite a few cases of art theft recently (involving both my work and other's), and I think it's about time I help out somehow.
So I made this small guide to dealing with art theft. If your art/your friend's art has been stolen, follow this guide and you'll settle matters quickly and easily.
Important point to consider
NEVER comment on the stolen artwork or the userpage of the art thief. More often than not, people comment saying things that are as harsh as possible and are completely inappropriate. Yes, 9 times out of 10 the "artist" is just a troll messing with people, but if you don't watch what you comment, you CAN be warned/reported for harassment. Keep that in mind.
The exception to this rule is if the stolen art is being sold somehow, of which a comment will discourage people from buy

Something is Awry....Well if some of you might have noticed our Etsy shop has seemingly disappeared. I have been working with Etsy for the past few days to try and resolve the issue... their help has been spotty at best. Seems like ever since they went public their services have severely deteriorated.Something is Awry....2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have opened a new shop over at Shopify (http://keyperscove.myshopify.com) for anyone who needs a KeypersCove fix. Etsy keeps telling me I should have the shop up soon but in the mean time I figured it might not be too bad of an idea to have one elsewhere as well. I will be uploading more product to the Shopify one today. I actually like their layout and services so far. Its cool because I can integrate it into my Facebook as well.
So anyways.... if anyone wants to visit or purchase from the new shop, the link is: http://keyperscove.myshopify.com I will also be updating our front page with it as well. Thanks everyone!

BUYING AN ADOPTABLE
Check the adopts' status - Open or Closed. (in a set of adopts I write the buyers' names next to adopts, so you can see which are already taken)

If you prefer actual money, I'll send you my e-mail for PayPal

The hype over this isn't unwarranted. We've all been spooked before by things like SOPA and other assorted things of that nature. Those were pinned as hoaxes even though they were legit, just not nearly as substantial as people thought.
Although it sounds like some more kind of hokum pokum put out to scare people, this isn't a new set of knives aimed at artists. The same 'Orphaned Works Act' was put before congress 2 times a few years ago and failed/flopped. There's no doubt they're going to attempt the same thing eventually.

Now, I don't have a problem with dA changing their prices. Inflation is a real thing, and a business has to do what it must to stay afloat. What astounds me, though, they're making such a big deal out of it. Aren't you supposed to not have some big front-page celebration of raising prices? Aren't you just supposed to sneak it in, not say a word, and hope nobody really notices? And if people do raise a fuss, make some business-ey statement about "operating costs" and "economic trends" in some big-worded pile of lip service to quell the peasant folk?

The Caged Bird ScreamsIt depends on the day.The Caged Bird Screams3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like the weather, it changes
and in my brain, a little man stands
before a green-screen and tells me
the average of highs and lows.
"And today we're looking at
your daily morning low,
followed by forced optimism at noon,
quite possibly plunging into
a long shower later today,
where things might look better
and now back to you, Jim."
Simple as that,
with my feet rubbing on the carpet
and my hands clutching the bed like
it's all that's keeping me tethered.
I open the blinds and know
there's more than this.
I'm just caught in a cold-snap,
and I'm not really myself,
I'm just in there somewhere,
yelling myself hoarse,
'cause this chemistry has
turned me deaf.
Smiling happens genuine,
but is also muscle memory and
while it takes more effort to frown
I look sadder with a straight-face--
that's according to friends,
and it breaks my heart to know that
I appear to grieve for something
even when I am relaxed.

and kiss it.
That's how words are born.
They fly into this world
messy and covered in
the dust of forgotten wisdom.
They are yours.
They move with you,
so gladly step
in the syllables of
every thought you've owned.
Treat them well.
For when your voice
turns to rust,
and your bones clatter cold,
when your name is buried
with the last man you knew,
hanging in the wind
are your words.
In some old dog-eared book
are your words.
And when its pages stir
in younger hands,
lift your spirit to their lips
and kiss it,
re-birthing you in
words their own.

Ethereal beings just out of reach.
Comparing me to some distant ghost
who wanders the halls of your memory.
Don't you remember that only sad specters linger?
Tormented souls that can't bring themselves
To take their foot from the crack in the door.
I, too, find my hem caught in the lock.
I, too, cry out and scare myself at night.
And I'm afraid you'll exorcise
all remnants of my being.
Cut off all ties and send me
hurtling into the unknown.
Denying me the solace
as I move from one life to the next.
