Re:Rampant art 'theft' by Korean Drama siteHey guys, I've been seeing a lot of outrage over a particular website* which appears to be a type of blog about Korean drama shows, but if you type your name in the search bar, your art from here on dA is displayed. A lot of people are angry that their art is being reposted, and I'll address that in a moment, but more importantly, I must warn that you SHOULD NOT ACTUALLY VISIT THE WEBSITE, because it is supposedly loaded with viruses and malware. Plus, typing your user name in the search bar also seems to be the trigger that CAUSES your art to be reposted. More info on that in this journal here: http://darlingmionette.deviantart.com/journal/Art-Theft-UPDATE-343890145Re:Rampant art 'theft' by Korean Drama site2 years ago in Personal More Like This
*I won't type the URL, because it is supposedly rife with viruses, and I don't want any of my watchers' computers harmed.

.: Life Owner Virus Is Fake :: READ NOW!!!!!! :.I just did some research, and I just read information about the "Life is Beautiful" Hoax and the "Life Owner" Hoax. The "Life is Beautiful" Hoax started in 2002, and it was one of the most successful hoaxes. Subsequently, the "Life Owner Virus" Hoax is the same as the "Life is Beautiful Virus" Hoax. The Life is Beautiful Virus was an email sent to people with an attachment of a PowerPoint. People said that if you opened the email, then a pop-up would pop-up saying, "It is too late now, your life is no longer beautiful," thus creating a virus that would destroy everything on your computer. They also said that no Anti-Virus could destroy it, for it was too powerful. IT'S ALL FAKE!!!!!!.: Life Owner Virus Is Fake :: READ NOW!!!!!! :.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Full story: http://www.examiner.com/article/judge-sentences-three-pit-bulls-to-death-a-discriminatory-proceeding
Story summary if you don't want to click the link:
Austin Texas, Three pit bulls have been sentenced by a judge to be euthanized after they were the victims of a vicious dog attack.
Chris Grant the owner of the pit bulls had been training his dogs, Leo, Dawn and Gorgo in a parking lot earlier this month, the dogs secured to the back of his SUV, when a man with his dog running loose, entered the same parking lot. The loose dog spotted Grant's dogs and charged.
"The owner of the dog couldn't keep his dog under control," Grant stated. "It kept attacking us."
"Instead of pulling his dog out of our reach, he repeatedly punched and kicked my dogs, in attempt to stop my dogs from fighting back." Grant went on to state. "I waved someone down and told them to call 911."
Grant continued, "The owner untied Dawn's leash while I w

I know a good amount about copyright law, and in general what is OK and what isn't, and even I wondered how PETA "got away" with this far-too-identical "parody". I figured they HAD to have gotten some amazing lawyer to find some loopholes. But if PETA has actually taken a step too far in this case, and actually infringed on Nintendo's copyrights, PETA is in for a shitstorm.
They just fucked with the same company that FORCED A MAN TO PUBLICLY APOLOGIZE FOR MAKING BOOTLEG MARIO GAMES, THEN GOT HIS PIRATE ASS DEPORTED.

FAN ART FRIDAY: Wocka! Wocka!
The Muppets are celebrating their 60th birthday this year!
Jim Henson created the group of puppets back in 1955 for his first TV show, called “Sam and Friends.” Henson said the term Muppet had emerged from a combination of “marionette” and “puppet.” Henson’s wildly imagined collection of characters has been delighting children and adults with their absurd antics and comedic sketches ever since.
Quickie update-- thanks and apologiesHey all---- I thought I'd come up for air for a few seconds to give a quick update.Quickie update-- thanks and apologies3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been seeing lots of comments asking about why I don't answer messages or post more art. I want to offer my apologies. I just get so, so many notes, and my work is especially demanding these days. To top it all off, the last 6 months have been kind of rough for me personally and the combination of all these elements just means I don't have the time to answer.
Still, I want to thank every one for the constant supply of kind words, inspiring stories and compliments. I do get to read most of your notes (I think--- I hope!!) and the vast majority are so thoughtful. And with the kind of year I've had, it really lifts my spirits.
I'm hoping that by the end of the year, maybe during Thanksgiving or Christmas break, I'll be able to put together an FAQ. Lots of people ask for advice on how to get into animation, and I plan on answering that on

So I went to GameStop for a Kid Icarus event with Eneko and his boyfriend, and while I was there I bought Doctor Lautrec because they had it used. Then we left and went down the road to Taco Bell. Out in the parking lot someone called to us. It was a GameStop employee. He had my wallet! My stupid ass left it on the counter!
So this dude got in his car and followed us all the way to Taco Bell to return it to me. I was so happy and I felt so good about humanity. And also stupid for forgetting my wallet. xD
BUT YES. HEROES DO EXIST!

This one is way worse... Also the ACTA will restrict internet. NZ already has the system in place. I talked about it a while ago. The three strike system basically means your internet provider is monitoring what you do and will cut off your internet if they think you are downloading illegal materials.
By the way SOPA and PIPA aren't dead yet, PIPA is being voted on the 24th and SOPA has been delayed as far as I know.

Tenzin and Chief Lin Beifong are also on the site, but for our interests, I want to focus on these 3. We now have a confirmed personality for Mako which clashes deliciously with Korra's. I seriously can not wait for those -ahem- heated arguments over who's really in control. ; D <3 BUT most interesting of all is the confirmation of Bolin's bio! He's a bro for sure; a lady's man! lol The most important line being: "In fact, it was Bolin who was responsible for introducing Mako to Korra." Does that sound like what I think it sounds like? MAYBE? We'll just have to see I suppose. What do y'all think?

Stockers you should knowHey people! So, one of the many questions I get asked about how to improve figure drawing is where to find a suitable model. In a perfect world, friends and family members would sit for us artists for hours on end, however that's highly unlikely especially if you're looking for an "actiony" pose! Also, those of you who are just beginning to draw the figure need to do so from a human model. Drawing from life is, once again, ideal, but stock photos are the next best thing. Plus I'm always harping about dA's great stock so this is the list of some of the absolute best figurative/pose based human stockers on dA:Stockers you should know2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

And here's a petition you can sign: http://www.change.org/petitions/hasbro-do-not-change-derpys-name#
One of the beautiful things about Derpy was the fact that she was a character that was both cannon, yet left up to wide interpolation of the fan base. She was whatever you wanted her to be. A mail pony, a clutz, a mother, or just a regular pony with a lazy eye.
You want to know what I ran the Tropic Thunder clip. It's because the Derpy featured in "The Last Round Up" wasn't MY Derpy.
It's kinda like finding out that "The Force" is a bunch of space germs. Some fans always wanted to have it explain, and some wanted to stay this mystery...well...force!
I wanted to tell you this in a video, but I'm assuming you would want an explanation now that I'm asking you to sign this petition.

I don't even know what the story is this time.
Something about...Yen Sid...blah blah blah I have a keyblade...blah blah blah Riku's haircut sucks.
So why do I like it so much?
Well, for one thing, I love virtual pets.
Ever since I got my first Tamagotchi in '97, I've been obsessed with the idea of raising and caring for electronic pets. I get very attached to them, too. I name them. I love them. Not as much as my real pets by a long shot, but a great deal more than I probably should.
And for another thing, I love Sora. He's one of my favorite video game characters, which is QUITE a feat for him, trust me. I see a lot of me in him - we're both a little on the stupid side, definitely a wee bit naive, and I also grew up on a beach (technically, an island, actually!) xD
And now Sora has virtual pets.
