Stranger Danger!!:iconohshitplz: Usernames changing.Stranger Danger!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Personally I'm against being able to change usernames - if you have a username you don't like, particularly an embarrassing one, you should be stuck with it forever, as a constant reminder of all the mistakes you've made in the past. Like when you have to use your embarrassing email address to apply for jobs and college.
Yeah, EmoWolfLover666 sure is timeless. You can't go wrong if you have 'chan' or 'kawaii' or especially 'desu' in your username even though you're not Japanese.
You should proclaim your love for that fictional character from that fandom you will love forever.
Deviantart letting people change their usernames isn't letting people learn from their mistakes, it's letting them take the easy way out. And that is wrong.
You should wear your disliked username as a badge of shame. Show people that you were foolish in the past but you have grown as a person. Set an example for the children - show them that they must take time to consider thing

I thought it was fab (ﾉ´ｰ`)ﾉ I was a little worried about what it was going to be like and thought I'd watch it til I got bored but it was rather awesome and very, very British.
I'm really interested to see what people outside Great Britain thought of it.
My favourite part was how excited and interested the Queen looked all the time.

5 Random facts:
1. I need the toilet but I'm too lazy to walk upstairs.
2. I sometimes refer to myself as male. I don't know why.
3. Sometimes I narrate my life in my head.
4. I wore a Spider-Man t shirt to work today.
5. I like almost any food except celery.
1. Favourite colour combination.
I like hot pink and aqua blue/teal.
2. Favourite animated movie, and why? (includes CGI as well as traditional animation)
I love How to Train you Dragon, mainly for Toothless and it's just wonderful, although I don't understand why the adults have Scottish accents and the kids American.
I have a list a mile long of animated movies I love though.
3. Ice cream or Frogurt?
Ice cream, but I have never eaten frogurt :'I
4. Favourite country to visit.
Ummm ... I don't know, I haven't been out the country much.
Prop-building 101In the Fighting Dreamers Productions I am usually the guy who builds most of the props (though both twinfools and Yuna are getting better and better at it all the time, and Val and Mavi are fearsome prop builders on their own right).Prop-building 1017 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I tend to focus on manly characters with huge weapons, I receive quite a bit of mail asking for instructions on how to make them. Rather than writing hundreds of individual emails I wanted to create a series of articles on the noble skill of Cosplay prop-making.
And what a better way to start it than go through the basics of making giant weapons! In this first installment I will talk about materials and tools I use to make my props.
DISCLAIMER: there are many, many great Cosplay prop-builders, and in no way do I think my methods are superior to theirs. This is for those people who want to learn the methods to my madness.
Below is the list of the materials I use most commonly to create my props. Note that this is not a comprehensive list by

Like with costumes, you really cannot have too many reference pictures of the props you make. We tend to pin up every good color picture we can find up on corkboard in our living room. Scour the internet and art books for pictures, and if there is a video game that features your character try to get your grubby pawns on it to look at the weapon in 3D. Even better, if there is a high-quality action figure available for the character you are cosplaying, they usually come with weapons that are perfect reference material in 3-D! Besides, who does not want to own MORE actions figures?
Use any pictures or models of your character with the prop you are building as a measurement for how big your sword needs to be. If you are really tall, this means you will need to build much longer
Bomango ze Tango!I'm going to get ahead of this right now and say that this might not be a riveting read for folks. Bad advertising, I know, but I feel it's necessary to preface this by being realistic. I'm not uber-famous, my characters aren't known far and wide, and for Pete's sake, I don't even have a proper webcomic or series to speak of. But, I've been asked numerous questions enough that it might be useful to have a FAQ essay of sorts to clear the air a bit.Bomango ze Tango!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

ORIGIN! (in real life)(image circa way the hell back when i was still spelling it GoGo BoManGo)
"Bomango" (as it's come to be known) came about maybe around 2004 or thereabouts...shoot, maybe 2003, which makes it a decade old already...sheesh. Anyway, the earliest drawings of "Gogo" were sketchbook illustrations of a big-eyed girl in a long jacket. Not anime-style big eyes, mind you...big, droopy, heavily-lined eyes, wi

All patches come with Velcro backing both hook and loop sides.
Feel free to follow me on twitter, where I should be able to post info on any new projects I'll do! -> https://twitter.com/TensaiOni
a) Full colour Lunar patch - the patch is 10 cm (~4") tall in tallest point and 9 cm (~3 1/2") wide in widest place. Comes with Velcro backing.
It's a bit larger than your usual patch size, but considering the shape of the patch, only parts of the text "labels" might stick out a bit when placed on an uniform.
Available in both "dark" and "light" versions.
b) Subdued/camo Lunar patch - the patch is a bit smaller, around 7,5 cm tall (~3"), exactly the size of larger patch's shield without labels.
c) Celestial patch - patch is 7,5cm by 7,5cm (~3" by ~3").

Scratch's EyesThe TL: DR is that Scratch's eyes as seen in the show are the same as Dash's. But here's a wall of text and helpful visual aids to help explain.Scratch's Eyes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Magenta is not red (and it's not really violet either).
For reference, this is Dash's eye pulled right from the official artwork (and ergo how I made my color guide). The eye gradients are always composed of at least two to three colors, and they all go from a darker to brighter luminance. It never goes dark-light-dark, though it can certainly change hue.
I've also included a screengrab of Dash from the show.
The flash assets used in the promo sites are the real deal from Studio B, the web people are not reinventing the wheel (and anyone who says otherwise hasn't actually dug into the flash files in the past). This has been the case since day one of the flash promo sites. But for argument's sake, I'll repost the ripped elements.
Now, to be fair, I'll grant that there may be some color management issues (given that Flash is, generally, not colo

What Freedom of Speech actually means.In America, "Freedom of Expression" and "Free Speech" refers to a constitutional right to express your opinions without being silenced or prosecuted by the government or police.What Freedom of Speech actually means.1 week ago in Personal More Like This
This is a legal protection in place so that the people can criticize the behavior of authority figures on equal grounds.
For some inexplicable reason, many people believe "Free Speech" extends further to civilian interactions. People claim their "freedom" is being violated when a website like Deviantart takes down their work, or when they experience harsh backlash for their opinions and beliefs.
In other words, call someone out on even the most vile, aggressive hate speech and they'll almost invariably fall back on some rant about their "freedom" to "express" themselves.
Unfortunately for the racists, misogynists, transphobes, homophobes and other anthropomorphic sewage, the right to free speech simultaneously means that others have the right to speak against you, and yes, police your words in their own spaces.

Derpy Hooves vs HasbroSo it has come to my attention that recently Hasbro has (possibly?) ordered a cease and desist letter to WeLoveFine.com for selling Derpy Hooves related T-shirts. This, coupled with the mysterious disappearance of the episode "The Last Roundup" (which is the one where Derpy talks) from iTunes has gotten fans freaked out and panicky. The general belief is that Hasbro wants to stop the cannoning of internet named Derpy from the MLP series due to the backlash of people getting angry for them for doing so in the first place. Petitions are going up ( http://www.change.org/petitions/hasbro-studiosthe-hub-do-not-change-derpys-name ) and blogs are being posted and everyone's going nuts over this.Derpy Hooves vs Hasbro3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Alright, alright, settle down. While this isn't crazy serious, it's still an update worth note!
Throughout history, art and artists have challenged preconceived notions, pushed boundaries and taken on subjects often considered taboo. Art is alive and constantly changing, much like the community at deviantART is. The CEA Team believes that deviantART policy must grow, adapt and change, to allow artists to push boundaries and express themselves whenever legally and morally possible. Policy must remain flexible in order for something, which was initially ruled as an absolute, to bend and change in order to allow for artists and quality to shine through.
