Homophobic Trolls.Recently I just had a new deviation removed by the staff due to "pornographic content." I am well aware that pornographic content as judged so by the good staff here at deviantArt can be removed and there isn't much I can do about it. However, it is the piece that was removed that bothers me more than anything. As you well know pretty much half of my gallery consists of lemons, and I've never once received any complaints or violations, until that is after I uploaded my "Female!South Italy x Female!Reader" fic, which was removed about two or three days after I uploaded it.Homophobic Trolls.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Uhm...OK, but why the hell didn't you report the rest of my deviations then? Only reporting that ONE deviation shows me that you aren't interested in enforcing deviantArt's policies, but rather that you are just a homophobic asshole. It's not like I didn't put the proper warnings on the fic, because I did. I even included that it contains ideologically sensitive materiel because I KNOW not everyone supports or necessa
Tips for Beginning a StorySoooo, I should try to update my journal more often. I typically don't have much to say and prefer not to talk about my personal life. (It's really boring anyhow.) So why not use it to start sharing some highlights from my vast collection of writing resources?Tips for Beginning a Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To begin, let's start with beginnings. Here's an article from one of the better sites giving advice on the internet. It's called "The 3 Integral Components of a Story's Beginning."
Here are some highlights:
Barnes and Noble editorial director Liz Scheier offers an anecdote that sums up the necessity of these three elements. Scheier writes:
A professor of mine once posed it to me this way, thumping the podium for emphasis: "It's not 'World War II began'! It's 'Hitler. Invaded. Poland.'"
The professor's example immediately gives us a human being (albeit a rather unsavory one) in whom we can invest our interest. Stories are about people. No people, no stories.
Contest/ Giveaway Info + More UpdatesContest/ Giveaway:Contest/ Giveaway Info + More Updates2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As promised I'm going to be uploading pictures of the possible things to win for my upcoming contest this week. I'm considering doing one contest and then one random giveaway for the people that aren't too keen on the idea of the contest. The prizes consist of some newer and older comics, an original print I purchased from a con a while ago (it's beautiful but I have nowhere to put it as of now; still in sleeve), a possible Harley Quinn print I got from my last con (signed by artist), and something I'll be making myself such as a sketch or plushie. I'm not sure if I'll be doing ranks such as 1st, 2nd, 3rd or if I'll be doing the set as one large prize package. If this goes well I may end up doing one every few months. Let me know what you all think and which of you plan on entering either!
I'll be leaving soon to go to FL, as most of my older watchers know by now, and when I get back (after the second week of July) the pieces will be judged and

5 Tips to Maintaining and Gaining WatchersFor those who have many watchers, and for those who dont have many, it is hard to know how one retains that interest as well as receive more. This article explores the basics of watchers and how we react to certain situations. Although it does not affect some deviants, and the tips are generally common sense, we hope the article is a worthwhile read and that the majority learn something from reading this.5 Tips to Maintaining and Gaining Watchers6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. When uploading deviations, do not bombard your watchers. If you upload only one or two a day, or even one or two a week, you will get more comments as well as more attention. People will have more time to comment and more time in general, whereas if you upload all in one go, they will most likely delete and just comment on a few.
2. Spend time on your artwork. Once youve finished a piece, it doesnt stop there. Youve got to consider the title, which impacts the piece significantly and the artists comment. Is art ever finished? Ask yourself that q

FallenLullaby's Tips To Writing a Reader-InsertOkay, I know I'm not the best writer out there, but I thought maybe this would be of use to others. This can apply to any type of Reader-Insert, but I'm using Hetalia as an example.FallenLullaby's Tips To Writing a Reader-Insert3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tip #1: S-p-e-l-l-i-n-g and grammar! Believe it or not, these are very important. Bad spelling and grammar can completely ruin a story. Unfortunately, Microsoft Word is a bit of a bitch when it comes to grammar, so I'd suggest re-reading your story over again to check for any mistakes. Also, you can always get an editor.
Tip #2: Keep the character's personality the same! Unless it's specifically crack or the character is drunk off their ass, try not to make the character too OOC. I know it can be very difficult if you're writing something like NetherlandsxReader where nobody even knows how the fuck Netherlands would even react to different situations, but give it your best shot to keep the characters in-character. I don't think I'm too great at this either, but hey, we sho
Adoptables, AuctionsWhat is an Adoptable Auction?Adoptables, Auctions3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
An Adoptable Auction it's like a normal auction, with an adoptable on the plate and the highest point/money offer wins. These are not 'first come, first serve' adoptables.
Is it the same thing as a Name-Your-Price Adoptable?
Both can cause a bidding war, but no, they're not the same thing. Auctions are more organized and have more terms to them that the NYP Adopts. NYP Adopts usually have a price range and not a starting bid, they don't have an autobuy, nor a minimum bid raise and end when the Adoptable Creator feels like it.
Bid = Money/Point Offer
Starting Bid/Base Bid (SB) = The first and lowest bid you can make for the adoptable (usually decided by the Adoptable Creator)
Minimum Raise = The minimum amount of money/points that you need to add to a previous bid to beat it (usually decided by the Adoptable Creator)
Autobuy/Buyout (AB) = The price that you need to pay to be sure to get the adopta
Stock Resources GROUPS DirectoryThis article is meant to serve as a list of groups at deviantART that focus on art resources.Stock Resources GROUPS Directory5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I know you can find all these groups and more in dA's Groups search, but how much time would it take you to find them all? And how many dead accounts and unrelated results might you sift through to find what you're looking for? (I did that very thing for this article, and I can tell you one rather probable answer to both questions is, "a lot.")
Not that I'm complaining. I simply saw an opportunity to compile a listing of deviantART's 80 most helpful groups about resources. But let's back up a bit.
Before I began this directory, I felt it would be important to introduce everyone to a place (the place) for dA's resource providers (and users) to get acquainted with the world of stock photos, textures, PSD files, tutorials, and all that other great stuff artists need to create their masterpieces! Thankfully, I didn't have to
Adoptables, Basics for Adoptables ArtistsTwo Steps to StartAdoptables, Basics for Adoptables Artists4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Create a new account
This is not necessary, per se, but if you have in mind to do more than just one or two sheets of adoptables, it might be a good idea to start a new account. This way you won't spam your watchers' inbox, if they're not interested in adoptables, and you can organize your gallery in a better way.
Be a member of Adoptables Groups
dA is a big community and the sheer amount of new deviations every day makes it hard for your art to be seen. Considering that you just made a new account for your adoptables, you have basically no watchers whatsoever so how can you get the exposure you need to sell your characters? The answer is join Adoptables Groups. By doing this you can do two things, the first is submit your adoptables to their gallery and advertise them, the second is observing the trends, what people like to draw and buy more.

Boston UpdateEDIT: They caught the suspects and the city is not under lockdown anymore. Thank goodness for that and thank you guys for your support!Boston Update2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you know, I live in Boston.
Lately this week Boston has been going through a lot of tough events. And as of right now, the city is under lockdown. There's a lot of dumb/stupid information that is being thrown out as frequently as the accurate/helpful ones and honestly I don't think I have enough knowledge to comment on any of them. Only thing I know is that we are being very cautious and hoping no one else gets hurt.
I can also tell you now that my friends are safe. My family (who does not even live in Massachusetts) are safe. I am safe.
Regardless of how you feel about the events (and whatever odd conspiracies you have with it) at least send good thoughts to Boston.

PETAHey, I've just heard some great news recently.PETA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm assuming you all remember PETA's attack on the Pokemon and Mario Franchise:
"When on a mission to rescue the princess, Mario has been known to use any means necessary to defeat his enemy—even wearing the skin of a raccoon dog to give him special powers. Tanooki may be just a "suit" in Mario games, but in real life, tanuki are raccoon dogs who are skinned alive for their fur. By wearing Tanooki, Mario is sending the message that it's OK to wear fur." - PETA on Mario
"Pokémon are treated as unfeeling objects and used for such things as human entertainment and as subjects in experiments. The way that Pokémon are stuffed into pokéballs is similar to how circuses chain elephants inside railroad cars and let them out only to perform confusing and often painful tricks that were taught using sharp steel-tipped bullhooks and electric shock prods." PETA on Pokemon
Then followed it up with the parody game "Pokemon Black and Blue": http://features

Hi, everyone. First of all I´d like to say sorry for leaving so abruptly. You deserve to know that the reason why I deactivated my account and ignored every other messages and texts, purposely was to restrict ("ground") myself from acting impulsively upon things and stop being anxious and breaking down (I´m more shatterable than you might know...). It also was because I wanted to set a change in things, something I´ve tried to do for almost a whole year, but it always failed… And you know, even though «fleeing» might have seemed wrong, I realize that this really DID make a change in me and others. Therefore, I don´t
