dear dA: age is irrelevantthis recent deviantart poll "At what age does an artist have the most artistic freedom?" is a condescending and narrow-minded question.dear dA: age is irrelevant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
often i see people have opinions about age and how it relates to art. some say that they are too young or too old to do one thing or the other.
well, i have not been on this planet very long, i can't speak for everyone and everyone's circumstances are different. but i will say this.
you are alive. and since you are, there is nothing that can stop you from your freedom to express yourself through art or anything that you have a passion for - especially your age.
don't let anyone's preconceived notions about your social status stop you from doing something that is so much bigger.
a blank canvas doesn't care how old you are, where you came from or what inspires you. you will always be able to fill it with what inspires you no matter what.

Can I also say something unrelated.. I think dA should really upgrade this journal thing with an easy image uploader function? so I don't have to upload in another database and imgsrc every photo in here. After all, having pictures in a journal is one of the few attractions and entitlement to a paid subscriber besides a customize journal, right?
Ok that aside D:
I used many unorthodox ways to do my costumes so hmm.. please don't laugh orz ...
So i bought a straw bowler hat from Daiso (for only SG$2), and then wrapped strips of paper around it until is all covered, like a half sphere but fuglier. Please use black coloured paper. And of course, please buy a hat accordingly to your head proportion. Don't repeat the mistake of making it too big like mine =_=
This is how the underside looks like. I arrowed a wire-comb there because it is how I secured this blob to the main wig late
Announcing the deviantART Creative GrantsAnnouncing the deviantART Creative GrantsAnnouncing the deviantART Creative Grants2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
At deviantART, we have spent the past 11 years building a place where artists can share and discuss their work and get inspired by the work of their contemporaries. A noble cause, for certain, but we would like to be so much more to our beloved community of brilliant creatives. Starting today, deviantART will also be a means of inspiration in an entirely new way with financial support for art.
On 3 month cycles, deviantART will accept applications from artists seeking to fund art-related projects. A panel called the Creative Grants Board will pick those projects that they believe will benefit particularly from a Grant and give those artists the support they need to make it happen. The lucky few who are chosen to receive Grants will also be given a beautiful accolade on their deviantART Profile Page to celebrate their succes

2014/02/21: Raised prices of everything!!
Hallu, these are my commission prices!! I might change them from time to time, either raise or lower the prices or delete thingies! ☆⌒(＞∇✪)
Read this before commissioning me
I'm writing my prices with $, but I think I can deal with other currency as well. I'm not from the US actually, but I guess it's a more international currency.
Basic information: I will draw anything for you, including NSFW content if you want that. When I accept the commission I might add more cost because of the design of your character, background or anything like that; I can also lower the price if I think I should.
Info about backgrounds are at the bottom.
One Icon cost $7/700 points, + $1-$5/100-500 points for animation.

Why Are You Atheists So Angry?I often see how religous people say that atheists dont have morals, hate their lives, arent happy, are always angry and disrespectful etc..

Not only do I agree with her, but im SHOCKED to hear half of the things that made her angry, because they are HORRIBLE and I dont see how anyone could ignore them.
Oh and just incase many of you thought I was religious, im not xD Ive got no problem with you being it, just dont try to shove it on me. 8D and guess what, Im a really happy and positive person even If I dont believe or have faith. I dont think I could be happier. Maybe If I had some delicous homemade pizza lD~

Photography Tutorial 1 - BackgroundsBackgroundsPhotography Tutorial 1 - Backgrounds4 years ago in Personal More Like This
For the first lesson of photography, we’re going to start with BACKGROUNDS. The background is an important part of the picture, whether or not the main focus is on the doll/subject. No one wants to see random objects, people or a mess in the background. Do not ever assume that shallow depth of field or bokeh will ‘hide’ away the mess in the background in a blur. It is still possible to make out a human head or arm in the blurred background.
DO NOTE: This tutorial is extremely IMAGE HEAVY. Most photo examples are contributed by us, while some are credited to the respective owners. So all necessary photo copyrights still RETAIN. DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PICTURES OR ANY PART OF THE TUTORIAL WITHOUT OUR EXPLICIT WRITTEN PERMISSION.

KHR to end is false? (all KHR fans please read)so yesterday i just created a new poll about the KHR manga ending....KHR to end is false? (all KHR fans please read)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
i know every KHR fan is sad.. first the anime, now the manga right? :/
well, DONT WORRY!
firstly! i do not know where you heard the news from, probably from a website, fanpage, or a friend.
Look at this tweet https://twitter.com/AnimeNewsNet/status/263732312838123520
Shonen jump did not announce the end of KHR. neither did animenewsnetwork. it was, as stated by the tweet, a personal opinion that somehow spread like wild fire. O-O
those who read naruto might probably know the naruto manga will end soon because ANN has annouced it, but KHR's end was not.
I will confirm whether if the manga is really going to end when i get my issue of Shonen Jump weekly tomorrow or on saturday.
Secondly. do be reminded that such rumours can be easily spread and believed, just like the Justin Bieber having cancer thing. It was made believable because people had spammed chatrooms and made false information that made JB having cancer
On: Illustration, Comics, and Story TellingDon’t suck -- PKOn: Illustration, Comics, and Story Telling2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want to say first of all that sometimes I get people asking, or rather complaining, “why does it seem like the comics always get a better score? This group seems so focused on comics. What if I just want to draw pictures?”
Well, that ends up tying into narrative illustration, which is a pretty hard thing to do right if you’re used to drawing single shots of your character against a plain, white background. Most people end up doing comics because it seems easier right away: the characters can talk, you can set the scene, it doesn’t require a little description at the bottom...
But, even comics require some know-how to pull off really well. It’s just harder to pull off illustrations in this story-based environment, because comics make it a little less apparent when it’s not doing a very good job at telling that story.
But, I’ll get to comics second.

CEA Blog: How to Submit an Abuse ReportHi deviants!CEA Blog: How to Submit an Abuse Report3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today I would like to address an issue that unfortunately happens quite often in abuse reports filed to our support center. We've had guides and articles written about this in the past but we felt it was time for a refresher!
So what is an "Abuse Report"?
The Abuse Report category is where a deviant would file their ticket under if they are being harassed or was witness to someone else being harassed out there in our community. Not knowing where to go or what to do when this happens understandably only adds to the problem!
Before anything else, please remember that abuse reports are only for the most severe of harassment issues. Things like disagreements, debates, general rudeness one might experience due to the anonymity of the internet or personal drama you may have with another deviant are some minor issues that can be easily handled by taking advantage of our Hide and
dA still alienates gay community with prejudiceSince the beginning of this site, dA has been repeatedly criticized for its homophobic approach to art. Homosexual couples (specifically male-male representations because lesbians are hawt, guys) in particular have been repeatedly targeted by the site's admins for deletion, an occurrence so pervasive that one deviant, reapersun was able to hold an entire contest to attempt to illustrate the line of discrimination.dA still alienates gay community with prejudice4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You might say, "the site is simply prudish!" Not true. They have an entire section labeled "fetish". Pictures of women having intercourse with tentacle monsters? De rigeur. Buick sized breasts oozing buckets of milk? Fine. But two consenting adults (especially male adults) touching? Kissing? My GOD, what filth!
The newest and most blatant example of dA's skewed treatment of gay people is a new stamp by prosaix
Try reporting it. You can't.
Why? Because tons of people have already tried and dA administrators have marked the case "invalid".

No More Unauthorized ArtworkRegarding the debate of whether comic artists should continue selling unauthorized prints/sketches of characters they don't own, I think Bissette and his legal advisor are 100% correct. So from now on, I won't be doing any sketches or commissions at shows of any character that I don't own. Am I rolling over in fear of Marvel? Maybe, but as it states below, they're in their legal right to come after me if there's ever a dispute. I love to complain about the Big Two, but I can't (in good conscience) get upset at them if I'm breaking the rules myself. Being DC exclusive, maybe I can get a waiver that allows me to sketch DC characters, so I'll keep you updated.No More Unauthorized Artwork2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Howdy there my little chickadees! I'm here to bring you the much needed update of the heart events and so there is little confusion on both parts of the spectrum we ( the mayors ) have pin pointed pretty much everything we saw wrong with the last time we tried to post the heart memes. So without further wait, the heart event journal!
Heart events are the steps to take to further your relationship between your character and another person's character. These will allow you to either make friends, enemies, best friend and even love interests. This will eventually lead up to your ultimate goal of getting married and having kids or being surrounded by close friends. ( Ultimately down the line your child will be your 3rd character if you decide to have one or if you don't get married; it will just be your 3rd character. )
- If your character joins the group and they are already married then that is fine, however if you join and your character is single you CANNOT
NEW POLICY FOR PMD-E EXTRA EXTRAEvent folders will be reopened for a brief period of time after we're done sorting through all the submissions.NEW POLICY FOR PMD-E EXTRA EXTRA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What this means for you:
You still have a chance to get credit for completing an Event.
What this also means for you:
Your submissions will not be eligible to be in the featured category.
Your teams will most likely not be in any kind of cameo we use for the canon story line.
Some of you may notice that this policy is JUST LIKE THE PROCEDURE FOR MISSION FOLDERS. That's right! A lot of people don't realize we reopen the Missions folders for about a week after we're done judging in order to give people an extra chance to complete a mission for credit (but not judging!). It's been like this since the start of PMD-E, and it's always been listed under the countdown clock.
The only difference is that instead of not getting judged (late mission entries), your event won't get featured or cameo'd/incorporated into the main story line.
