PE - The Beef with BasesWelcome to the Beef with Bases article. This may get a little controversial, so put on your heavy duty hats!PE - The Beef with Bases1 year ago in Customization More Like This
By now, we should all know what a base is. But just for a refresher - A base is a bald, naked figure for people to 'doll' clothes onto. Lately, more people have been making animal bases as well. Some argue that since they can't be dressed up, they aren't proper bases. But a base is a vague term to begin with.
Why do so many people make bases? What's the allure? Many people just start doodling and end up with a body they don't plan on finishing. So why let it go to waste? They fix it up a bit and let other people use it, so maybe others will find inspiration where theirs left off. Other times people are inspired by a pose, and want to practice their anatomy and draw the body. Sometimes people even have an idea in mind - say... a big set of mermaid poses! And more frequently, people see a piece of art t

Hello Everybody and welcome to my Stamp making guide. You may be wondering, why is ~TheSaltyMonster making a stamp guide? Well the answer is because a lot of people have been asking me how I make my stamps, and how to get started. So here it goes, and pardon the journal title. Please also check out the stamp feature towards the end of the journal
If you use any of the resources I have included in this journal, make sure to credit the original artist in your deviation description
How to get started..
Well, first things come first: What do you want to make a stamp about? Is it dA related, is it of your favorite TV show, or food? Or is it just an inspirational quote?
This is absolutely the first step in planning.
Is your message funny, girly, cute, serious? Depending on the type of message you're going to be portraying, you need to choose an appropriate stamp:

Have YOU ever found yourself... shockingly alone?
In need of some fanatical, adorable attention?
Look no further.
Your friendly internet Cthulu-spawn/Gummie-girl/Dodo-bird/Pokefarm-addict is here to help!
First thing's first: FIND YOURSELF A DOMAIN.
Every Queen needs a perch. Find what website/side of reality you want to use as a platform for your seduction!
Secondly: ESTABLISH YOURSELF AMONGST THE COMMONERS.
Something has to set you apart from everyone else. Maybe it's the way you type? Maybe some fandoms of your own will bring you and your trusty fanboy together? Maybe he will fall head over heels with the formatting you use?
Third: PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE.
How the heck are you supposed to be hunted down by a fanboy if he doesn't know you exist? Be friendly. Guys love that.
Fourth: TRY THESE FEW TIPS.
Congrats, you've met your soulmate/stalker/player!! Next, get him to fall irrevocably and unconditionally in love with you by trying the following:

Find people around you who are having a conversation, and make sure you have no idea what the conversation is about...

"Fave'ing and Running"Aw snap, I have an opinion again."Fave'ing and Running"11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have seen people talk about 'fave'ing and running,' which, to me, is an odd thing to be upset about. Someone has favorited your art, which is the equivalent of a comment saying 'hey, I like this!' ...which for you, as an artist, is completely guilt-free! You don't have to reply to that. You've gotten a complement, and it requires no further work on your part.
The alternate is that they DON'T favorite your art and DON'T comment (because they weren't going to comment anyway, right?), and you get nothing.
I comment on art that I especially love, or want to critique, or that I have questions about (like technique, subject matter, et cetera) Sometimes? I just like your art and want to add it to a list of art that I want to look at later. There's nothing wrong with that, and I might have nothing else to say on the art other than 'I like this,' which is covered by me fave'ing it.
If you rant at me about fave'ing and running, which is silly, it's likely that

Hey people, how are things? Great. So here's the thing, see...I'm usually a mild-mannered guy. Right? Sure. But I, like every other human being, have pet peeves, social annoyances and others that are nothing short of major psychotic hatreds. Of course, I've never totally vocalized these, as there are many and I'm usually so darn happy. Well I'm happy because I let my ragefuries out via things I call "honest letters". They're basically rants about things that have been pissing me off, and they're a way for me to cope with such things as I know that they aren't about to change. Today, I've decided to dictate a few of them here, just to let off some steam. And so, for future generations, Monty's honest letters.

Now I don't claim to be a professional, but I observe many people (over 900, in fact) an to be blunt, I find things wrong with their systems.
Which to start with; Commissions or trades?
I think I'l go in order. To start off this article, I will start with Commissions.
As the commissioner, it's your responsibility to:
1. Be open for questions about what you commission.
2. Be prompt with your payment and pay when and what you say you will.
3. Don't hound the commissioned artist.

Rape at UniversitiesLook at the posters on the walls: you know someone who has been raped, what do you do? Note the assurance of administrative guidance: contact the sexual assault hotline. College women are treated very strangely when it comes to the possibility of becoming a rape victim. Once victimized, a woman is a minor incapable of understanding that a crime can be reported to the police, a victim in need of fixing, a vaguely guilty and shamed party. Have you noticed, how rape awareness campaigns associated with college campuses focus on quarantining possible victims rather than encouraging rape victims to go to the actual police outside of campus? Not only this, but administrative faculty within universities actively discourage women from reporting rape beyond the bounds of the university. Women who believe the university is on their side might quickly find themselves pressured or threatened to silence or even reprimanded for not complying.The perpetrator, if a fellow member of the university, is rRape at Universities1 month ago in Personal More Like This

Garage in/Garage outHow do you become a better writer/artist?Garage in/Garage out10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Well, besides the obvious response of lots of practice (duh) my #1 answer is this:
Expose yourself to good writing/art. Expose yourself to an eclectic range of good art.
There is so much crap out there on TV, online and what's left of bookstores that it's easy to see only crap art and think it's good.
"But art is in the eye of the beholder!" you say.
Yes I know. And I agree, but there's also a standard of objective 'good' that nearly every accomplished writer/artist will agree exists. We may not agree on what we like, but certain works transcend personal tastes - Michelangelo's Pieta, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Lucas' Star Wars, Mozart's symphonies, and David Bowie's works. These pieces of work are generally accepted by the great majority as masterpieces in their field/genre. That doesn't mean they're perfect, but that they overwhelmingly impact the collecti

Early last Friday.. An absolutely horrible event.. One of the deadliest mass shootings in recent U.S. history happened.
In Aurora, Colorado, a suburb of Denver.. James Holmes, a budding scientist, brimming with potential.. allegedly opened fire and set off gas canisters in a theater minutes into a premiere showing of the Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises." The massacre left 12 people dead and 58 injured. A six year old girl, Veronica Moser, died in the shooting rampage.
Here on dA.. In this group.. We have a counter showing the flags of the countries of our visitors. Since April 14th this year this group has collected 140 flags on this counter. I want to say to everyone from each of these countries that I am indeed horrified by this event early Friday morning. I believe this is a more than ugly message for my country to send to the world.
Rather than this event in Colorado, I hope the world will judge the USA from an equally historical event that happened Saturday afternoo
