A REALLY LONG JOURNAL (but with pictures!)One ordinary afternoon, Waifu Niffy was just pondering to himself, deciding on that night's dinner for when his Hubby comes home.A REALLY LONG JOURNAL (but with pictures!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hmm, I guess it's lasagna again tonight, huh?"
When suddenly! A dark shadow looms over Waifu Niffy, taking him by complete surprise.
But before he could utter even the slightest damsel-in-distress girlish scream, the ominous shadow disappeared, and along with it-... Waifu Niffy!
Thankfully Fynn, the good neighbor, heard the commotion of broken dishes and toppled furniture and rushed to the scene right away with his trusty crocodile buddy Kuro.
"Ugh great, were those two at it again-...?"
Kuro, being the clever little detective he is, sniffed around the crime scene and deduced that Waifu Niffy had been wifenapped!
"Smells like Earl Grey..." /Sniffsniff
Kuro urged Fynn to call local police immediately!

A bit of a ramble from me to youHello everyone! Long time no see.A bit of a ramble from me to you3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to take this time to reflect on some things.
I was talking to Moorina and she inspired me to write this in detail and share with you all ^^
I've been doing doujin work and publishing in Japan for 4 years now... looking back, there has been a ton of sacrifices and bad decisions to be made. My life in general was kinda weird.
This is quite personal, but I though I'd share my life/experience with you guys.
My family was never well off. A lot of our friends don't know of our situation, of course. Our mother was gambling every single day and our father was never home. Mom would take all day looking around the house for hidden cash (stashed from my dad) while dad goes out to play pool with his friends. Our family borrows money from relatives and that's how we get by. If you go back to my journal entries from 2004, those were the days where we had to go to the internet cafe just to use the net because we couldn't afford to pay for anything per month

China trip post (photo heavy)Mm I don't know how to go about this in an organized manner, so this will just be a stream of photos with my intermittent narration.China trip post (photo heavy)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Our trip was Shanghai > Hangzhou > Nanjing > Suzhou > Wuxi > back to Shanghai. Then we went to Hong Kong on our own.
Oh yeah, first, since I have no photos of these (for good reason): THE SQUAT TOILETS. They suck. They stink. You can always tell if there's a bathroom nearby by the smell in the air! Half the time the flush doesn't even work. All the used toilet paper is tossed in a bin, so the smell just lingers and lingers. For some reason, sometimes they sell food right outside the bathrooms. LIKE WHY?! I don't know how anybody can think about eating with that smell there.
I drank as little as possible. Between my sis and I, we also brought 5-6 rolls of toilet paper, so it was more than enough. (We left the extra rolls at Grandma's in HK afterwards haha.)
Anyhoo, onto pictures...
From our place to China was a 12 hour flight, 4 hour break at airport, then

Regularly updated, thank you for all the favs and hope you guys will find use with this journal with the future!
Some plz may overlap with many other different series than just one.
Many of these series have missing plz icons, and surely they're somewhere, just not discovered; please do comment on this journal with the missing icon if you find one. However, if this is an official plz database that contains mainly plz icons that people would like to use, rather than a crappy plz icon. So please, be considerate of what you desire to add; will people want to use it?

Concerning Points to USD [added info]I just want to sort of explain this because it's sort of a pet peeve of mine when I see it around lol.Concerning Points to USD [added info]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are TWO point + USD equivalents.
Not just one.
80 = $1.00 ONLY IF:
-You are BUYING POINTS or if you are using points to buy/sell PRINTS or other dA MERCHANDISE.
100 = $1.00 ONLY IF:
-You are turning points into USD via PREMIUM DOWNLOAD or COMMISSIONS WIDGET.
Why is this?
-deviantART will ALWAYS take a 20% cut out of whatever you RECEIVE whenever you use dA to process anything that has to do with points going into USD or vice versa.
You feel that 20% whenever you buy points or a print or anything else with USD, because you're only getting 80points per dollar.
And if you look for yourself, on your commissions widget or in the premium download options, 100points = $1.00 to make up for that 20% lost by dA taking its cut.
Prints, Merchandise, Buying Points ---> 80 = $1.00
Commissions Widget, Premium Download --->

Attention please also read: Submission Guidelines and Credit Guidelines
Criteria. That word is used a lot here at digital-artists, so let's talk about it.
The ever mysterious Criteria in our group. The bane to those of who have tried to submit, yet only left with a decline message signed "Criteria". As mysterious as the Whitechapel note signed "From Hell"
Ever present yet unobtainable, like some secret code written of the Illuminati.
Not quite... but a few have blown this criteria up to mythical urban legend proportions, and we need to deflate it a bit.
We have had a lot of questions about this ever elusive and undefinable "Criteria" and for good reason, we never told anyone what it was. We never gave anyone a proper explanation of it in regards to the group submissions. It

Symbol(s) for the non Premium DeviantsHello my Ryceballs. So eversince DA's recent symbol changes, I have been hearing a lot of complaints. Mostly about how regular non premium members don't even get a symbol. It makes them feel like they are not important. Its ok I hear ya I hear ya. And you know me, I am all about the people. Ry-Spirit cares. So I thought about this a lot and try to think of an appropriate symbol that best suits our non premium friends, at the end I came up with a symbol... WELL I say a symbol but its more like a string of symbols. I feel like this is the only option for it to work. And I have used myself as an example of what the symbols would look like if I am in fact a regular deviant. Ok please look below.Symbol(s) for the non Premium Deviants1 year ago in Personal More Like This

This position could lead to long term contracts being sent out to you as we are looking for an artist (s) to have on board for the game and future jobs.

This is the style of the game you will be producing works for:

Why University of California, Berkeley?A new school year begins at my university and I've been getting a ton of notes asking about why I decided to go there (instead of an art college), or is the art program there any good. Hopefully this journal will satisfy your curiosity and help you decide which college you want to go to.Why University of California, Berkeley?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
But first I would like to make an announcement to my fellow UCB art majors that my friends and I will be teaching a group study class on Digital Painting/Webcomics so if anyone is interested in signing up for the course e-mail the founder, Patrick, at firstname.lastname@example.org (we don't have a Course Control Number yet but we will).
On to the questions~~~
What's the art department like at UCB?
Since UCB is most famous for its science programs (where all the budget goes), the art programs are not the most amazing, but they are pretty good depending on what kind of art you're into. Berkeley has an intellectual yet liberal atmosphere so we try to look at all forms of art from various perspectives.

Just a minor issue to bring up! It's not often that it happens to me, but sometimes it does and actually one small incident just happened last night. They have removed the image and I have already sent them a note with just a small future warning about checking sources when using bases ;v; But anyway! I just wanted to say something on the issue of tracing, stealing, etc.
First of all, I just wanted to thank those that are looking out for me and contacting me quietly when you do find instances of my art being used in ways/places where it shouldn't be. I'm glad so far with all the incidents, I received comments and notes where the tone is very calm and collected. In the future, if you see anything stolen (whether it be from myself or from other artists or even yourself!), I definitely recommend contacting the original artist first before you do anything else! See it from the "art thief" perspective a bit - although I do not condone the use of bases where it has been traced o
